About Elite K9 Training

Karen Lutz is the owner of Elite K-9 Training. In addition to running her own training facility at 7150 Love-Warner Rd in Cortland, she trains puppies for Shelter Puppies, the first puppy shelter in the area to offer puppies who are already vaccinated, spay/neutered, and microchipped in addition to being obedience and crate trained before being adopted. Many of the puppies are also house trained before going home.

Karen is the Founder and Canine Training Officer of the Mecca, OH K9 Search & Rescue team, which is part of the Volunteer Fire Department.

More recently, Karen’s Basic Obedience class has been approved for a local prison program, where inmates learn proper training, housing, and handling techniques while caring for and training dogs that have been rescued from several area shelters. Dogs are pre-evaluated for temperament, ensuring each dog finished in the program will be suitable for adoption into a new home.

Karen did not go to school to get a degree for training. Her knowledge comes from all the seminars, working with other trainers and dog handlers, and from learning hands-on, being in the show ring, and in the field. Karen has been around animals all her life, and believes there are some abilities that just can’t be taught. They are God given talents (or gifts).

Karen is recommended by veterinarians in her community that have known her and the work she has done. She enjoys training and working with many different breeds of dogs, as well as educating people how to effectively communicate with their dog. Please feel free to call Karen with any questions about her training programs and any dogs she might have available. (330) 883-6904.
