    We have been working with both dog's, they were very unruly and the biggest one would not make friends. Since we have been training he has become more calm and strangers are able to approach him this has been a great experience so far

  • 5/5 stars

    They are wonderful to work with. He is quick and efficient and we noticed results after the first day. Our dog would bark like crazy at anyone that walked by the front of our house. After one tip from the trainer our dog settled down significantly. He worked with us on some other problem behaviors that our dog was exhibiting as well as basic commands. We would definitely recommend him to make training your dog convenient and painless.

    K9Katelynn has helped me and my dog tremendously! After rescuing her about a year ago and never having a bigger dog before I didn't realize how different it would be. I was not used to having something so big to control and knew I couldn’t do it on my own. I also had extremely high anxiety about her being around other dogs and it was deterring me from being able to take her for walks outside or let her socialize at the dog park because I was too nervous as to something bad happening, whether it be to her or to another dog. Tom has been extremely patient and thoughtful through our entire training process and reassured me every step of the way. I've found that her mastering 'simple' commands has made her a more obedient and calm dog all around, even when we are not training. She used to jump all over me, pull the leash, lick incessantly, etc. but with the help of K9Katelynn I now have the confidence and education to correct her behavior when necessary and I think our relationship has strengthened through the process. I have come to understand that I am as big an influence on my dog's behavior as she is so it was just as important for me to listen to the plan and by following everything he said we both have come a long way. He was always on time, was always flexible with my schedule and always available to answer my questions via text even if it was during the week when we were not in a scheduled session. I felt he really went above and beyond to help understand how I was feeling about certain issues and how we could work through them in a way we were all comfortable with. I really liked how he went out of his way to get to know me as a person as well as bond with my dog, it made me feel like he really cared about our success and wasn't just worried about the paycheck and whenever we were 'done' he was done whether he felt we were ready or not. I can't thank him enough and I can't say enough good things about K9Katelynn! :)

    I decided not to use k9katelynn.

  • 5/5 stars

    When I first started working with K9katelynn I had just adopted a dog. One who was in the rescue for 6 months. I was a new dog owner. My dog (Pit Bull mix) was great with people but not so much towards other dogs. She was shy, startled easy and quick to go into fight mode. She had went potty inside, broke out of her kennel, pulled on the leash and I was scared to walk her. I was scared because everytime she saw another dog she tried to fight. Over the 1st couple of weeks with K9katelynn I was frustrated as results were so so. Towards the middle of our training the bigger picture stared to come together. My dog and I had the basics down and were working on new commands. Today my dog is more confident, knows her boundaries, listens to my commands and the aggression issues has improved a ton. K9katelyn has been amazing from working with my schedule, working on my needs along the way and guiding me through growing pains. If you want a personal touch from someone that will come to you and deliver results, then K9katelyn is the one you want.

    The trainer was very professional and knowledgable. We learned a lot about our dog and how to teach her to obey. She is a happier dog and we are better owners!

    Kkatelynn K. from K9katelynn replied to this review on April 19, 2015:

    Thank you for the review!! Saw much improvement due to your work and dedication! She is a great dog!! Thank you from your friends at k9katelynn!! Tom visited us on a weekly basis as we completed the obedience training, step by step. He is very thorough and focuses on the areas that are important to us. He demonstrates the obedience training and we practice the exercises with our dog. He is responsive and available when we have any additional questions or concerns. The training is cumulative and has made a huge difference with our dog and her demeanor!
    Member Comments: The training only works if the owners put in the time and effort. Tom is very thorough in his explanations and helpful in offering a honest opinion as to what we should expect and whether or not we are giving adequate effort towards the training. The rewards are worth the effort! Our dog loves the training and we have all learned a lot!

    My wife and I contacted K9Katelynn to help with issues we had while walking our 2-year-old rescue dog. The pup is very friendly and not at all aggressive, but the sight of another person or pet sends him into a frenzy to meet the newcomer. Tom came to our home to meet us and Riley, learn our expectations, and explain his training techniques. He made it clear that achieving positive results could only come from our practicing techniques from the previous sessions.
    The training included teaching Riley basic commands like sit, down, and wait. One of the most important parts of Tom’s program is for owners to learn their role in the process. We learned that it is Riley’s nature to please us by doing what we wanted, but this could only happen when he knew what we expected, and this meant working the commands repeatedly and consistently.
    I will admit that Riley still lacks the leash etiquette we hoped for, but I believe this is because of our failure to perform the required reinforcing exercises. We now have the basic command tools and understanding of Riley’s behavior to achieve our goal. Don’t think Tom is going to give you a magic leash and suddenly your pet will do everything you want. You have to do the work.
    Having said all this, I’d like to add my comments to those many others that spoke about Tom’s obsession with “write this down”. Teachers and students are all different. Tom does things his way and probably feels writing things down reinforces them. As a student, I would rather have him give me a script of the steps and important points for a given lesson. Rather than stressing to be sure I’m recording his words verbatim, I could understand the point and add my own comments or interpretations in the margin.
    Overall, I think our experience with Tom and K9Katelynn was a positive one, and Riley is a better pet for it. Plus, the treadmill sure beats 100 degrees on those summer days.

    My experience with K9 Katelynn dog training has been excellent. When Tom first met my dog, I described him to a friend as "magical with dogs" - silly, but true. It is immediately evident that he has significant experience training both dogs and their owners. It takes work to make progress; I felt a bit like I was in school with my two 20 minute sessions (at a minimum) of dog training "homework" per day. It was very rewarding to see my dog's progress. Tom had an answer to every question I asked, and if you do what he says, you WILL see results. That being said - you have to do what he says! If you are looking for someone to magically fix your dog, you are in the wrong place. Tom teaches you - the owner - how to work with your dog and train him effectively.

    We found his program to be overwhelming for pekingnese, as it would be more expected for a much larger breed.

    We couldn't be happier with the results. Tom was very professional and helpful. He explained everything up front so there were no surprises. We would recommend him to anyone with a dog who needs a little fine tuning to a dog with major issues. Our dog had some aggressive behaviors which have not been an issue since the training. She learned how to sit, down, stay, place, wait among other commands. She also learned how to run on a treadmill which gives her the extra exercise she needs.

    I had a dream to be able to walk my dog in the park without her lunging at children, people or other dogs. Kkatelynn (Tom) made my wish come true with the training. I was actually the student it seems. He trained our family to use the most optimum techniques with the dogs. I am a disabled and could easily trip and Tom took this into consideration and modified a few things in training to make sure I was safe and comfortable walking the dogs. Thanks so much. Highly recommend.

    I contacted K9 katelyn to help with an aggression problem. I could not allow one of my 1yo boxers to attack my 11yo pug. By training my 2 boxers and learning ways to channel Ellie's energy and mentally stimulate her, I now have happier dogs and I am confident that we
    will all be able to live together safely . Our trainer worked with my schedule, our sessions ran on time but I never felt rushed. Each session had a goal that was clearly expressed and demonstrated. I was surprised and pleased at what Ellie and her brother were capable of learning.

    Sought their help for general wild behavior of my Pom mix; pulling on leash, barking at other dogs while walking, jumping on people and furniture. Well worth the investment!

    Before K9katelynn, my dog Lucie was always really hyper, never listened, and was very leash aggressive. I did a lot of research trying to find a good trainer and eventually found Tom. Since finishing her training after about 2 months, I see a HUGE improvement! She actually sits (and does other things) on command now. He also taught her to run on a treadmill which is helping with her hyperness and aggression as well. So thankful for Tom helping us out. He has awesome tips on how to change your dog for the better. Can't wait to see how much more she will improve over the next few months :)

    I hired K9 Katelyn to help train my australian shepherd and liked his approach of positive reinforcement. I've done dog training classes in the past, but hands down I've never learned as much as I did by going through this program. I took at least a page of notes during every session which aided me greatly when we practiced during the week. I literally feel like I have a book of knowledge now and could train any new dog on my own now. And the only reason I think I could do that is because of the copious notes I was asked to take each week during our training sessions. My dog is super well behaved, was able to learn all the skills, and is very obedient now. I can't thank Tom and K9 Katelyn enough for helping me train my dog.

    Tom has helped us tremendously with our pitbull/boxer mix Bogey. When we first got Bogey he was very skittish, unsure of new people, and dog aggressive. After working with the dog using everything Tom has taught us, we have seen a drastic improvement. Bogey doesn't seem to be as shy, he's improving around other dogs, and he's respecting us more and more every day. Step aside Cesar, Tom is the real life dog whisperer!

    Recently I had the privilege of being trained by Tom, K9Katelynn. He worked extremely well with our three different dogs: different breeds, sizes and personalities. I guess that could be said of myself, my brother and son. Tom trains the entire family. The training felt uncomfortable at first, but I opened my self and trusted him. In fact, I had some physical health issues that Tom worked into our training for my safety. I am so glad I did this training with K9Katelynn. One of my dreams was to be able to walk my pit-boxer mix in the park without her lurching at birds, ducks, little kids running around and etc. Now, it is a pleasure to walk with ease and confidence. After having three really bad trainers I was skeptical. Wow...I am so glad that I picked up K9Katelynn's business card at my Vet's Office in North Phoenix. I know my vet would not recommend just anybody. That says a lot in itself. Tom was patient although we were not at times. I never felt rushed. In fact, although our sessi

    We trained our dog, Dexter, with K9katelynn in the spring of 2011. He had aggression issues towards other dogs, some people and getting hard to control in general. This made of very sad b/c we feared that we wouldn't be able to do the stuff we had hoped to do with our dog. These include going to the dog park, hiking, camping and just generally taking him anywhere dogs are allowed. I'm happy to say that a year and a half later, Dexter, is exceeding our expectations of what we thought was possible and has become a great dog. After our 8 weeks w/ Tom, we con't his training everyday for 6 months and now incorporate it into our everyday life. We recently took him to San Deigo to play at the beach and go to Balboa Park. He did great and alot of strangers complimented us about how well behaved he was and how nice he walked on his leash. The training was expensive and incredibly time consuming but was worth it. We always viewed the cost as an investment in the lifestyle we wanted our dog and us to have and I'm excited to say we acheived this.
