group round cornersTK-9 prides itself on being Maryland's best dog daycare, dog boarding, and dog training facility in the Greater Baltimore area. Our location is convenient to Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, and Prince George's County. We provide many services for puppies, adult dogs, and dogs with behavioral concerns. Our facility is equipped with spacious kennels, a puppy only playroom and over sized training rooms for in person classes. TK-9 provides a unique and exceptional daycare experience for all dogs regardless of age, breed or play style!

TK-9 formally known as Tecla's K9 Academy opened its doors June 1, 2010. We offer comprehensive dog training services, daycare and boarding for dogs of all ages, breeds and play styles.  TK-9's respected team is led by founder Tecla Walton, who is a puppy imprinting specialist, behaviorist and nationally renowned for her dog training skills.

We provide a complete and balanced approach to training dogs and their owners using a variety of methods based on proven scientific principles. We are dedicated to optimizing the relationship, obedience and behavior of every owner/dog team we work with. The result is a deeper relationship between human and dog based on trust and respect, which in turn produces a happy and obedient dog.

Our goal is to prevent the needless euthanization or abandonment of dogs. About 96 percent of the dogs that end up in shelters have not received any obedience training, according to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy. We strive to change this statistic.
