About Us

Tomey K9 Services was founded in 2014, and as of 2018 merged together with Baby Dog.

We at Tomey K9 Services believe that the most effective way to communicate with your dog is through motivation and praise.

Our training services are personalized to your individual needs and led by our amazing team of trainers. We are committed to being flexible to your schedule, helping you reach your goals, and providing exemplary service before, during, and after your training.
