Our Story

Welcome to KK’s Canine Training, LLC website, my name is Cindy Riesgo trainer, owner & operator of KK’s Canine Training.

Katie an American Staffordshire Terrier is our inspiration to help dogs and their owners to live a happier well balanced life. Through training this is possible!

Katie was 10 weeks old when I found her in a shopping cart alone and scared. I began the training process in a puppy class with our local Humane Society then I proceeded with Basic, Intermediate and Advanced training. Katie is now retired though was a registered Therapy Dog with Alliance of Therapy Dogs who worked with special needs children. Along with that, she was a AmbassaDog for the Fort Lauderdale Airport, and a  proud member of the non -profit group My Pit Bull Is

She is a wonderful role model for her breed and continues to be my reason to help dogs in need.

When you decide to train with KK’s Canine Training you become a member of our pack for life.
