Sierra Fuentes


Sierra began her animal training career at 6 years old where she was introduced to livestock animals through 4-H and continued working with a variety of animals for over 10 years.  She later had the privilege of working with an Equine Therapy program where she was able to see the bond between disabled individuals and horses. This has sparked her interested in service animal work and eventually dog training through a Canine behavior class at her vocational agriculture school.  Since joining the BK9 team, her eyes have been opened to the world of relationship-based training as well as developed the ability to see potential in every dog!  Each day, she is excited to work with the incredible dogs that come through our facility as well as learning from each dog since every dog is different!

Sierra now works as both a trainer and in our administration! She spends her free time creating the beautiful content that we have on our Social Media and making sure that all of our clients are getting their needs met each and every day!
