Very nice people. Unfortunately were unable to board my senior dog at the Singer Rd, Joppatowne, MD location. Unless you enroll your dog for training classes they don't provide boarding services. But they did refer me to Hickory Kennel in Harford County for boarding/kennel services.

Our puppy loves this place and so do we! They work with him for the day and he gets to play with his friends in a safe controlled environment. He also comes home tired which is a bonus.

BLK9 has been a lifesaver! Our dog came from Iraq last year, full of fear and anxiety which presented as aggression. She is a large dog and was very hard to handle in every way. In just a few short months, we have a different dog! Everyone at BLK9 has been wonderful to work with. They are very knowledgeable and responsive. Working with both our dog … and us has been a great experience.

At this point, Blue Line K-9 is family! They have been a life saver for us! Our Snoopy loves everyone at Blue Line! We wouldn't trust anyone else with him. Thank you for ALL you have done for us! We are eternally grateful!

I brought my rescued GSD to Blueline in January of 2021. She was a little over a year old and was an abuse case from an Amish puppy mill. There had been instances where she bit people, and other dogs, and as an owner it was the most terrifying thing I’d ever endured. I was terrified I’d lose my baby, and I hated how scared she was. Blueline K9 helped me identify that she was indeed fear aggressive and developed a plan specifically for my dog. We started with K9 Country Club to boost her confidence level and help her realize not everything was a threat, and then moved onto the Ultimate training program. My girl finished her training in the Summer of 2021, and to this day I still take her to Blueline 2 days a week. Now the rest of my dogs go there as well, especially my working breeds. Whether it’s something big or small Blueline can handle it. If I could give them a 100/10 I would. They’ve not only given my dogs the confidence they need, but as an owner I have it too, and that is priceless in my book. Their entire staff genuinely cares about your dogs the same way you do. There is no other trainer I would ever trust with my dogs. Hands down, they’re the best in the business and no one will tell me otherwise.

Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly, understanding, and accommodating to me and my pup at Blue Line! We have really enjoyed our experience. My pup has been challenging in many ways and everyone at Blue Line is happy and ready to jump in and help us.

Very through, helpful, respectful, and most importantly handled my Beligan malinos puppy with love as if she was theirs! I cannot stress it enough how much I felt at home at blue line k9!!

Hollie Kelly & Jason Carroll Owner/Trainer
Hollie Kelly and Jason Carroll, both born and raised in Maryland, reside with their children in Harford County. This couple cherishes family above all; their family and your family. Together these two are the Owners and Master Trainers of Blue Line K-9 in Joppa, MD. Their passion for families has included animals since long before the day they met. Eventually, this led them to careers in the Dog Training and Animal Care Industry. Hollie started in the animal training and care industry at the young age of 9. Over the years Hollie has spent countless hours, working with different breeds and behaviors, to keep animals happy, thriving and in their homes. She spent most of her free time growing up, helping families build bonds and train their pets, finding animals homes and also caring for sick and injured animals in clinics and for neighbors. As an adult the passion to help families with their “non-human” members only increased, guiding Hollie to a career in Dog Training. This ultimately led her to training with Michael Soler at Blue Line K-9, Inc., becoming the General Manager for the organization and finally purchasing the location in Joppa, MD. When Hollie is not working to help someone else achieve their goals, you can find her on an adventure with her children or off training her own canine in bite-work or trailing. Jason’s passion for dogs started as a child with his first family dog, one he says could read every emotion he had while growing up. From there, it was always a natural instinct and love to be active with the dogs in his immediate family and dogs of his extended family and friends. His passion for training came several years into his adult life, with a strong willed pup that was rescued. As training progressed with his new best friend, Jason realized he wanted to help more families have meaningful bonds with their pets. This realization led Jason to join Michael Soler’s team in Blue Line K-9, Inc. and eventually to own the Joppa, MD location. Today Jason is not only a Master Trainer for Blue Line K-9 of Joppa, MD he is also a decoy for Blue Line K-9’s Working Dog program. When Jason is not training or building in the facility, you can find him playing outside with his kids and dogs or practicing his decoy drills to build on his enthusiasm for working dog programs. Jointly this duo values their entire team of fantastic people, each client and pet with as much love and care as they would their own family member. You will always find them excited and ready to accept any new challenge. Whether it is a particularly difficult behavior, participating within the community, working with the local rescues for training, fostering a pet or helping neighbors; Hollie and Jason are willing to jump right in.
