IN home consultation re puppy training
I met Tom from K9katelynn through a friend that graduated from his training program with her two poodles. While I was a bit skeptical at first, as I had been down the private dog training route before, I was still a bit overwhelmed with my dogs lack of obedience and anxious behavior. Tom took the time to understand my goals as a dog owner of two minature poodles and my desire to have them fully and happily integrated into our family. His organized and methodical approach to step by step training made perfect sense to me. He helped me understand that with patience and loving praise, my dogs would very soon understand the newly placed boundaries that would nurture them physically, emotionally and mentally. I quickly put into action training techniques that he taught me to eliminate jumping and we experienced, immediate positive results. Later today we did our first "walk" in the pool, also marked with great success. Each dog swam on a lead for approximately 15 minutes with short rest breaks. As I sit here now, writing this review, they are both sleeping quietly in their own space rather than anxiously demanding my attention. I realize the success of a perfectly trained dog lies with my willingness to be prepared and consistent. I am willing to put in the hard work now for the long term gain of being a pet parent to two stunning, happy and well behaved mini poodles. Thank you Tom for your honesty and courage in showing me my well intentioned tough love and rigidity in raising these dogs wasn't aigned with my desire for them to exist harmoniously with our family. If you're considering dog training for your puppy or dog, please give K9Katelynn an opportunity to get to know you and your dog. I'm hard pressed to believe you'll find a more loving and patient trainer.
This was great training for my puppy. He is so much more disciplined and even calmer! He picks up on new tricks faster and still retains the old tricks he’s learned. He now has manners and never really misbehaves anymore!! This was an awesome experience and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a dog training service!
Kim is a wonderful dog trainer she helped my wife and I train our two month old great Dane she was very stern and she showed love at the same time which was very important to us she taught him several commands very quickly after the training Kim continuously calls tofollow up and make sure that he is still doing all of his commands well which he is my wife and I are very thankful that we found Kim and we highly recommend her to anyone that needs help training a puppy or even an adult dog we really think you would be very satisfied with someone of her skills
Anita is looking after our two dogs, walking them and doing training with our puppy. She is excellent! She gets on very well with the dogs (and our cats), goes above and beyond expectations and does extra little jobs we haven't even asked for! The animals love her and I don't know what we would do without her!
Beth does go above and beyond. She is caring and gives helpful tips on training my dog. When I leave I feel confident that my dog will be well taken care of.
Wonderful experience - did an amazing job with our 2 puppies (basic puppy training)
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Renee is great. She is very calm, knowledgeable, patient, and was great at teaching and empowering our whole family to feel confident in training our puppy. Looking forward to our next appointment 🐶
I love Brandy and Steve. They have paid very close attention to my two dogs, Charlie and Frankie. We came in with two hyper active working dogs that had little training but have picked up so much information in training class. I am trying to beg them to do a level 2 training class for my dogs to be in. I love how attentive they were before and after class with Frankie and Charlie. I also realized a lot of the work was to train me. They have trained me well. I spend 30 min a day with both of my dogs training them separately with all the tricks they taught me in there class. I would highly recommended this obedience class with Brandy and Steve. They are very reasonably priced as well as they answered my response to their services within minutes. They treat my dogs as there own and send out weekly emails regarding all the dogs in the class and what we need to work on. On the off hours of training Brandy answers my texts and sends me additional info regarding activities for working dogs that she thinks would be good for my babes. One week I didn’t have a second handler and she had her husband help me out. She’s a serious gem and moving forward I will only work with her. She’s passionate about what she does and understands dogs so well! Thanks Brandy!
She answered my questions regarding training my dog.
My walker, Louis, is so sweet, patient, and caring. I feel confident in her ability to handle my little monsters. (5 month old puppy and 45lb lab) Setting up was professional, easy and I feel like my dogs are in good hands. I work 45 minutes from home so this service was a must have when my fiancé couldn't take them out at lunch. Definitely worth the peace of mind.
Rebecca is so nice and so kind. She is exactly what I was looking for when training my Yorkie. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a good trainer. She was on time and very professional.
People comment on my well behaved and obedient dogs - it is because of training from Waggin' Train. Waggin Train helped me train my dogs based on my lifestyle and needs and my dogs' personality. Waggin' Train also helped me introduce an adopted dog into my home. Amazing results - the new dog is quickly learning and my other dog is loving her new sister quicker than I expected. Thanks Waggin' Train!
An overall great experience, always on time, helpful, knowledgeable and left with a list of priority tasks each week. Always available to contact with questions and clarification. Great training at a very decent price as well! Has helped change some negative behaviors in my service dog in training so he can get back on the path to an amazing working dog!
Madison is awesome she is a real professional she is polite good with dogs and there human counter parts I would recommend her to anyone that has puppy issues in a heartbeat.
Eileen and Ben were fabulous! They worked with us on vocal commands and how to respond to our dogs when other dogs approach. They brought their 2 pits within them to help with the training. Plus our neighbors pup (in training) was also there. We thank them and will be calling them again for more help.
I booked with Samantha through DogVacay and have used her regularly. From the time she responded to my message, to the meet and greet, and all through each stay my dog has had with her she has kept us informed and happy. My dog always comes home happy and worn out! She has two fantastic dogs, they are super friendly and my dog has a blast with them. Her puppy is a ball of energy and can keep up with my crazy girl! Samantha was even available to me when I had last minute travel plans over memorial day weekend, which was awesome because I know how busy she was that weekend! I will use her every time I need to as long as she is available.
I would absolutely recommend Amy to my friends and family! Amy was extremely friendly and knowledgeable during our training sessions. She offered great feedback and different things I could try to correct some bad behavior. We are definitely on our way to a very well behaved dog!
Being involved with Schutzhund for the past 10 years, and more recently AKC, i have attended several seminars. But, it was not until a couple of years ago when i attended my first seminar with Uschi that everything came together. When our club was later asked who they would want to bring back for another seminar, everyone said Uschi, hands down! Since then i have traveled long distances to attend her seminars, and it is always well worth it! My relationship with my dog has improved and i am more confident as a handler. When no one else could help with training challenges with my dog, it was Uschi who took us to the next level! I am also now doing agility with my dog and Uschi has helped so much with that too! I always get compliments on my dogs performance! Uschi trains the handler and can read a dog better than anyone i have ever trained with! Not just one breed of dog, but ANY breed! Not just Schutzhund but AKC obedience and agility! I always look forward to training with Uschi!. She is patient but firm and always fun! Uschi is absolutely the best trainer i have ever worked with!
