About K9 Mastery LLC

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

The dog obedience training methods used at K9 Mastery are based on traditional German training philosophies that have produced the best and most reliable dogs the world has ever seen. These methods are highly disciplined and effective; however, it has taken years and hundreds of dogs to perfect the techniques used so they are successful on the average household pet that is neither as strong willed nor as driven as the dogs chosen for police and military work. These methods reject the use of treats in training and focus on the development of the owner into a master of their dog. They have worked on every age, breed, and size of dog, and will work for you too!

Currently offering group and private lessons and board and train services.

    Zoey is 10 months old doberman pincher and one of the Christie's student. Right after Zoey turn 5 months old, I started to have hard time to walk with her, because she was not listening to me and pulling me all the time.After first class I can tell the differences was huge.Now it is amazing to walk with her around the lake, at the mall or any crowded place without any problem. Especially when people are telling me "how good behave dog " one more time I appreciate Christie and K9 Mastery. Zoey is still continue her intermediate obedience training and during her training she also got CGC certification and title. Thank you Christie you turned my little monster into my little ANGEL :)

    Three years ago, I had a dog with whom I knew not what to do. She bit people and was regularly attacking my other dogs. One trainer told me she was so aggressive that my best option was euthanasia. Thankfully, Christie found me and after six months of extensive, intensive, patient and positive training, I had a model dog who amazes me every day. Since then, I've taken a dozen unadoptable dogs from The Humane Society to Christie and with her help found new homes for all of them. Your money will be well spent and you will have new dog that you can show off with pride.

    I was at my whits end with my dog Pistol before a coworker sent me to K9 Mastery. We are only two lessons in, but the difference I see in my dog already is amazing!!!! Pistol no longer pulls on his leash when we go for walks. He stays by my side on a loose leash even when walking by other dogs and people. I have tried other training methods before this and I was very disappointed with the results. I am very excited to continue building my bond with Pistol through the training we are doing. Thank You Christie!!

    We went through several months of training and completed basic and intermediate levels. We have two large dogs who had been attacking each other, resulting in trips to the vet with surgeries and drainage tubes. We thought it was one of our dogs attacking the other and this was our last resort before having him euthanized or trying to find him a home with no other dogs. Our dogs were 8 and 10 years old at the time, and we had little hope that a trainer could make a significant difference. After our first meeting with Christie, we knew we had found the perfect trainer. She taught us that one of our dogs was taunting the other and causing our other dog(who we thought was the victim) to attack. She took our concerns seriously and supported us throughout the entire training process. Our dogs amazed us throughout training, I honestly thought only super dogs and dogs that were trained as puppies could be as well mannered and well-trained as our dogs are now. I did not know it was something within a few months reach! It has been the best decision our household has ever made. Our dogs are incredible. I have pictures of me walking our 3 large dogs with one hand while I was 40 weeks pregnant, when previously I could not walk one at a time without struggling. This is THE trainer you have been looking for. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Follow her instructions and you will have the dog of your dreams!

    Without a doubt the best dog trainer out there. Calm, firm, easy to understand. She LITERALLY saved my dog's lives.

    Christie has worked miracles for me and my dog, teaching my dog not to be fearful and me how to lead my dog. She's highly responsive and very understanding. She's made me a confident pack leader. I recommend her training services to anyone with a dog, regardless of size, age, or experience.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. The majority of my students come to me for obedience training and behavior modification services for aggression issues that other trainers have told them were beyond hope.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. Bosco - a bull terrier mix that had not left his house without a muzzle for over a year due to dog aggression will be attending the Mighty Texas Dog Walk for the first time this year after completing Basic Obedience.

Jubilee - Her owners tried 4 other trainers before coming to me to help with her aggression issues. Jubilee is now in Advanced Obedience and off all equipment in group classes with 20 other dogs.

Sammie - Her owner was told that she needed to be euthanized because there was no hope of rehabilitating her aggression. Watch her video on my site for her story.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am down to earth and straightforward. I keep things simple, and I take on cases that many others won't.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. Simply because of my love for dogs and my desire to help others. I have been there myself. I understand needing help and feeling hopeless. No dog is beyond hope.

Q. What is your greatest strength?

A. My tenacity. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. I live by those words. Press on.
