The K9 Concept

Bespoke dog training that really works!

What is The K9 Concept?

The K9 Concept is based on the theory that training dogs and owners needs to be entirely tailored and flexible. There is no ONE concept to train all owners and dogs effectively. What we do is customise the training programme to the individual needs of you and your dog. We have many happy dog owners who have benefited from this bespoke service and here is what some of them have to say! 

Why choose The K9 Concept?

Because we don’t stick to a ‘one size fits all’ approach – our training works!
Our pricing is based on your unique needs and we have several different programmes which means we can choose the format which best suits you and your dog:

We also have The K9 Concept Complex for hire, which consist of two enclosed fields and a semi-outdoor training area, as well as our own independent Canine Certification Scheme. 

A little bit about me

My name is Zsófi (that’s the Hungarian version of Sophie).

I am the founder and owner of The K9 Concept and when you come on board with us it will be myself who works with you to design your unique training programme.

I’ve always loved animals. As a child I surrounded myself with dogs and cats and it was no surprise to anyone when I went on to study for my master’s degree in agricultural engineering. My degree gave me a real in-depth knowledge of amongst other things dog breeding and animal behaviour. While I was studying at University, I joined a voluntary Search and Rescue (SAR) Team and attended as many dog training and pre-hospital care courses as possible.

Operating within a SAR Team had a great impact on me and was very rewarding. This has taken me into my current role within the Ambulance Service, which I am currently involved with to this day.

"Where can I start!!! What an absolute shining star you are.. you have helped us so much in two sessions restoring faith we don’t have a nasty dog, just a loving Bulldog with no social skills. Today I could of cried... walking with another dog. Minimal barking... no pulling... complete shock. Thank you so much, I know we have a long way but we’re so happy"

"Our dogs had a wonderful time in the freedom field. It was so good to be able to let our dogs off and no that they are are fully enclosed, our spaniel just wore himself out which makes a change !! will definitely book again. Thank you"

"Izzy my 9 month old exuberant collie/lab cross and I attended our first group session with Zsofi today. What a brilliant well spent hour. It made both Izzy and I concentrate and learn new things. Helpful advice and a well planned lesson with 4 other dogs and owners. I think everyone felt good after the session, all having achieved improved behaviour and knowledge ..... For both dogs and owners. Thank Zsofi!"
