A bit about our team…

Our owners, Brian and Lisa Berg, bring the greatest ethics, knowledge, and excellence to K9 Basics. This has made us the leader in professional dog training in this area for the past fifteen years. We have a twenty-four acre facility, including 68 kennels, surrounded by woods just off of Rt. 73 in Marlton, NJ.

We are not new to this by any means. Our staff is very impressive in their experience and knowledge in this area of dog training. Our Training Director, Arnold Apel, has considerable experience from his military background in the United States Marine Corps, as a Military Police K9 handler. He has worked and trained dogs both stateside and overseas. Owner, Brian Berg, was the Supervising Officer and a handler for the police K9 unit for 10 years, and had multiple real-life apprehensions. Our staff takes great pride in producing excellent dogs; their knowledge, decoy work, and ability to problem solve is extraordinary. This is proven experience and professionalism with appropriate techniques.
