You can now reach us at 781-745-BARK (2275)
We will be open February first!
We will be offering structured daycare, boarding and of course training! We're going to be offering a lot of new services like day school, board & train boot camps, ear cleaning and anal gland expression. We'll also be offering nail trim and dremel appointments at the shop.
Eventually we are going to have a small boutique set up where you can purchase any product we recommend during training.
All in home nail trims and training are temporarily suspended as of February first.
The Group Hikes are also temporarily suspended but will be resumed as soon as possible because they are a very important part of our training program.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this very exciting transition!
Here at RcK9 our goal is to help dogs learn to dog and to teach people to speak the lingo! Whether your dog comes to one of our structured daycare, training or boarding programs we will strive to create the environment where your dog can thrive!
We work with several rescues and shelters, both locally and out of state. If you are in need of a behavior evaluation or training services, we are happy to help!
Our website in under construction, if you have any questions please feel free to call 781-745-2275
I am honored and excited to be able to introduce myself! I have been a veterinary technician and trainer for over 10 years. I have my CDT, I'm a member of the IACP and I am an AKC Certified CGC Evaluator & Trick Dog Instructor.
Many years ago I got my start in training through rescue. I ended up with a dog with some behavioral issues that I had to learn how to manage through trial and error. The more I read and learned, I realized that most of the dogs that have been surrendered are in desperate need of training. So I decided to pursue certification and open Recurve K9 Training and Behavior Modification! My hope is to keep dogs from ever ending up in a shelter/rescue because of behavior issues that could be resolved with training.
It is my great pleasure to introduce Josh AKA my big little brother. Joshua has grown up around dogs, you might even say he's part of the pack. Living in the midst of the pit bull rescue that our mother runs (in South Carolina) he comes by his understanding of dog behavior naturally. In rescue it's not always easy, sometimes you get the dogs that are terrified and/or angry. Josh has a knack for being able to get through to some of those tough cases in a way that cannot be taught. I am thrilled to be able to teach him all that I can and to have him accompany me on this journey!
The key to any successful relationship is communication. Our goal (and job) as trainers is to improve communication between dogs and their humans to ensure long, happy, productive relationships.
As far as methodology, we do not focus on any one particular method. Every dog is different and so what works for one dog, may not work for another. We do not get hung up on tools. A tool is just that- a tool, everything has the potential to be misused. We strive to create a balance of structure and love. If you have questions, shoot us an email!
This is my soul dog, I am a better trainer because of him. When I got him at 8 months old, he didn't know how to be a dog. He was fearful and aggressive-afraid of everyone and everything. He is and forever will be a work in progress but he has come so far and I am so proud of him!
Tiva (left) is the original girl, my husband got her as a puppy and brought her to the hospital that I was working at, the rest is history! She is the smartest dog I have ever met and as a result of that, also the biggest trouble maker!
Zarek "Z" for short (right)- my heart, the one who started it all, whom I lost at an early age due to a brain tumor. A long time ago when I was working mostly in rescue he was dropped off by a local. We discovered that he had some behavioral issues and thus began my adventure into training.
Or Bratty or Pork Chop or The Velvet Hippo. She goes by many names! She is the most recent addition to our pack (2015). My little traveling/work buddy, she goes with me everywhere and has not met a single person she didn't love!
We are closed to the public on all major holidays.
