About the owner/trainer: Sophia has been active in the k9 community for much of her life, working dogs in various competitions. She got her start in Jack Russell Terrier competitions, working in agility, go-to-ground, racing, barn hunting, and flyball. Moving from the sport dog community to the working dog, she was able to take an apprenticeship training working k9s. Moving from the sporting community to the working dog community allowed her to transform her training techniques into a hybrid of various styles. Sophia later completed her certification as an Explosives K9 Trainer to further her experience in the working discipline.

No two dogs train the same so it is important to have the ability to adapt to all training situations. The most enjoyable part of training for Sophia is working with a challenging dog and watching the dog succeed at the end of the training program. 

Across all training applications, the most important aspect is to promote success of the K9 in his applied field. Creating a product that is sound in his environment, excited to do his intended job, and works successfully for his human companion is the ultimate goal for all K9s that come through the Fox K9 program. Whether that be a narcotics detection, protection, or pet dog it is important that each K9 knows how to act in his environment and the people that involves.

THANK YOU

MY HUSBAND AND I KNEW WE WANTED A PUPPY AFTER WE HAD OUR THIRD BABY, BUT IT PROVED TO BE QUITE THE CHALLENGE.  SOPHIA STEPPED IN AND TOOK ROSE FOR 6 WEEKS.  ROSE CAME BACK TO US A COMPLETELY CHANGED DOG.  SHE KEEPS HER DISTANCE FROM THE KIDS WHILE THEY'RE EATING.  IF FOOD DROPS ON THE FLOOR, SHE LOOKS TO THE ADULT TO SEE IF SHE CAN HAVE IT AND WAITS TO HEAR THE COMMAND FOR YES OR NO.  IF AN OUTSIDE DOOR IS OPEN, SHE PATIENTLY WAITS TO SEE IF SHE CAN GO OUT.  WE ARE STILL WORKING ON HER POTTY TRAINING (NOT THE WHOLE HOUSE, JUST IN THE Crate). SOPHIA HAS given us ADDITIONAL PRIVATE LESSONS TO HELP RESOLVE THE ISSUE.  SINCE WE KNEW THAT ROSE WAS GOING TO TEST US WHEN SHE CAME HOME, IT'S VERY REASSURING TO KNOW THAT SOPHIA IS THERE TO HELP.  A LOT OF PEOPLE TOLD US WE WERE CRAZY TO GET A 3-MONTH-OLD PUPPY WITH THREE VERY YOUNG CHILDREN.  SOPHIA PROVED THEM WRONG.
