Important Update:

Due to family commitments, I am unable to take on new clients at this time. We are currently undergoing an exciting move to our 5 acre property, where we will soon open our expansion of the Adventure Academy Daycare! As this is an extremely busy time for our family, I am unable to take on new clients or run any classes at this time. In Sept. 2018, we will re-open our doors to give you and your furry friends the best adventure hikes that Kelowna has to offer! Our new facility will continue to offer the same daily hikes, with the addition of acres of paradise for the K9 Kruzers pack to roam and socialize in a caring and controlled environment. 

My partner Debbi McArthur of Prairieburn K9 Academy will be running monthly Foundations Classes for puppies and adult dogs on Tuesday evenings. Debbi and our assistant Kathleen will also be continuing with our Tuesday and Thursday adventure hikes, as well as weekly pack walks (with owners).

Please contact Debbi directly at for more information or to register.  Check out her website at for Debbi’s other programs and services.

I look forward to continuing my passion for training and adventure, better than ever!

Stay tuned…

The First Year: Kelowna Puppy Training Services Done Right

The best time to start training your dog is when he’s still a puppy. K9 Kruzers specializes in puppy training services, understanding the specific approaches necessary with these animals. Part of being an effective puppy trainer is not being easily swayed by the cute faces and mannerisms these puppies tend to have. There’s definitely a fine line between being loving and nurturing, and being firm when need be.

That said, Erin and her assistants simply LOVE puppies and they know the best methods for making sure yours grows into a lovely, well-mannered adult dog. It’s very rewarding for them, and a big part of being a good puppy trainer!

Kids aren’t the only ones who need a safe place to play, learn, and socialize while mommy and daddy are busy. Look no further than K9 Kruzers if you’re looking for a dog daycare. They really do go the extra mile everyday to make sure the dogs are able to really enjoy themselves while also staying entirely safe.

If you’re looking for an adventure daycare service where you can feel 100% comfortable leaving your dog in the Kelowna area, please do consider us here at K9 Kruzers. You simply won’t find a more unique dog daycare, and it’s very likely we’ll be your trusted go-to for daycare and training whenever you need it.

K9 Kruzers Puppy class is the perfect balance of education and fun with your puppy. You will learn solid basics for life long success in real life settings. Erin is not only a smart, kind, calm educator but an animal lover also. My puppy loves to run the agility course and benefits from the socialization with the other puppies in a safe environment.
Thank you Erin

Kathleen    West Kelowna   

Erin is an amazing trainer and we are all very lucky to have found her! We got Kobe as a rescue and once we found out his breed through DNA testing we knew we were going to be in for it. He is a very high energy, high impulse pup and sadly we ran into many issues we were not prepared for. Thanks to Erin, she has trained not only Kobe but our family aswell on how to handle any situation we run into. She is very professional yet friendly and knows exactly what she is doing and how to achieve success. Kobe becomes extremely excited when we are on the road to training and is so happy when he sees Erin. We highly recommend Erin @ K9 Kruzers!
Thank you from our entire family.
