Frequently Asked Questions 

Dogs enrolled in LukEli's In Kennel Training Program will stay in our climate controlled kennel building. Temperatures in our kennels range between 60 and 80 degrees, no matter the season. 


Each kennel has indoor/outdoor access so your dog can freely move about between the climate controlled indoors or the great outdoors. When temperatures are significantly hot or cold the outdoor access doors to each kennel will be closed off for safety and comfort of your dog. 


Every dog (along with their minimum three training sessions per day with our certified professional dog trainers) will be leashed walked by our LukEli K-9 approved handler. Leash walks will allow your dog access to all the amenities of the farm. There are over 30 acres of open fields and meadows, a 2 acre pond for swimming (weather permitting), and a creek side walking trail. The  daily enrichment activities offered by LukEli are one of kind and are offered at no extra charge! 


Your dog will enjoy their time here. We make sure of it!

The In Kennel training program at LukEli K-9 allows our professionally certified trainers to work with your dog multiple times per day, with a heavy focus on consistency and socialization.


Every interaction between your dog is carefully managed and tailored to set your dog up for success. In this way we can greatly accelerate your dog’s progress and help you reach your goals in a much shorter time frame.  

At LukEli K-9, we know your dog is an individual. Each and every dog who comes to us for training will get their own individualized training plan. ​


Unlike most other training companies, LukEli K-9 does not use the same training techniques on every dog. What works for one dog may not work on the next, which is why we tailor a training or treatment program to fit your dog's needs. We do not turn out assembly line dogs that act like robots, nor do we only offer you a select set of cues to choose from. When you choose LukEli K-9 you will choose what cues your family and dog learns, and what is needed in your household.


You choose what works for your family!


Upon completion of your dogs training program, you will receive an instructional video of your dog performing all the cues they have learned, as well as an included 1 hour private lesson to help transfer what your dog has learned from us to you.  


What you get with LukEli K-9 is a individualized, personal, training experience from trusted, knowledgeable, professional dog trainers.
