5-Start Rated







Congratulations on your new furry friend! As a proud puppy owner, you want nothing but the best for your furry companion. At Next-Door K9 Solutions, we understand the joy and responsibility of having a puppy.

Puppy Training

Puppy Development

Well behaved dogs start with well behaved puppies. In our training, we focus on more than just obedience. We focus on long term results.

Puppy Training

Puppies are like sponges. They suck up everything. They are learning good and/ or bad habits. Let us help you make sure they are soaking up the right things!


We will train your puppy in different environments to expose them to as many new experiences in order to build confident puppies.

Benefits of Training with Next-Door K9 Solutions:

  • Help your puppy develop good manners and obedience skills
  • Prevent behavioral problems from developing in the future
  • Bond with your puppy and strengthen your relationship
  • Give your puppy the confidence they need to navigate the world around them
  • Enjoy peace of mind knowing your puppy is well-behaved and under control

I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to send my dogs to train with Next Door K9. I have only wonderful things to say about them. The way they treated the dogs, the overall training, the constant communication, and among all, the videos of their progress.

About Next Door K9 Solutions

Zach Barkley: Owner/Founder

Zack spent 4 years in the United States Marine Corps as a Military Working Dog Handler. Upon completion of his contract he continued to chase his dream by training Law Enforcement, Sport, Pet, and Working dogs in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. Zack has shadowed and learned from some of the best trainers in the world. Being humble and understanding are key components of his training and learning philosophies. Zack has been involved in the sales, procurement, and training of many different aspects of dog training. Since then he decided to open Next-Door K9 Solutions LLC to help others and share the information he's learned over the years. Zack is a devoted and balanced trainer, incorporating specific training techniques for each individual dog.

“Josh was an excellent trainer. He answered all of my questions and gave me a lot of good tools to help my rescue mix. I was very skeptical at first with the amount of "trainers" you will see online but from the moment I met him, you can see his passion for dogs. My dog was very responsive to dogs and people and would not walk on a leash without pulling the entire time. He was able to transform her into a confident walking machine. He answered all my questions quickly and sent tons of videos of the adventures they had together. Very professional and knowledgeable. Next-door K9 experience is top knock and really are the best in the area.”

“Zack and entire Next-Door K9 Solutions saved our walks! We would recommend them to any and all of our friends and families. Zack has been nothing but reliable throughout Scooter’s training and after he was returned home. Zack taught our 2.5yo (very untrained) pup how to properly walk on and off-leash, something we are SO grateful for. Not only is it amazing for us but amazing for Scooter, who can now get proper exercise without having to be fenced in. The entire training process has been a breeze. We highly recommend this team to anyone looking for dog training. Thank you!!!!

- Ripley

“From the moment of 1st contact to each subsequent lesson, Zach is professional and personable. There is no hiding his love of dogs or his skill as a trainer. In just a few training sessions, he has Fiona doing things that I didn't believe she'd ever do and she adores him. Can't wait to see what else Zach has in store for Fiona & me (because he's training me too).”

- Paula

“I was very impressed by how much progress both my dogs made in just 2 weeks. I also know they were treated well as evidenced by the affection they displayed towards Zack during the transition at the end of the Program. My dogs are happy. I am happy. And I can focus more on enjoying being with them.”
