Los Angeles, Calif. (November 19, 2021) – Kennedy Wilson Brokerage, a division of Kennedy-Wilson Properties, Ltd., announced today that world-renowned celebrity canine behavioralist and dog trainer Jas Leverette from Netflix’s Canine Intervention is expanding his Bay Area Cali K9 dog training business to North Hollywood in early 2022. This will be the San Jose-based company’s first location in Southern California, introducing dog lovers in North Hollywood’s growing Arts District to Leverette’s popular training techniques. The lease was brokered on behalf of the landlord, Venice Plaza, LLC, by Kennedy Wilson Brokerage Senior Associate Kyle Fishburn and Executive Vice President and Director of Retail, Lee Shapiro.

“Jas’ successful approach to dog training has won him celebrity clients and a Netflix reality show, so establishing a new Cali K9 location in Los Angeles, where residents are obsessed with their pets, makes perfect sense,” said Kyle Fishburn. “The highly visible NoHo Arts District location offers close proximity to entertainment and media companies, a source of potential celebrity and executive clientele,” he added.

In its new 1,785-square-foot space at 5015 Lankershim Blvd., Cali K9 joins Hop Merchants Taproom and a to-be-announced veterinary office at the intersection of Lankershim Blvd. and Morrison St. Cali K9’s expansion reflects a larger trend of retailers flocking to the North Hollywood submarket, a district in greater Los Angeles where many national credit tenants have seen potential for growth over the past several years.

“Leasing this prime North Hollywood space to an emerging specialty brand such as Cali K9 reflects retail’s continued recovery as the pandemic subsides,” said Lee Shapiro, Executive Vice President and Director of Retail.

The Cali K9 Modern Dog Training Method™ is an exclusive, world-renowned five-pillar leadership system. Jas Leverette’s methods feature reward-driven, highly effective, easy-to-follow and enjoyable training techniques. The brand specializes in board and train programs as well as an online dog training course, “Obedience Fundamentals.”
