Our female dogs have struggles with dog aggression and have been raised without strong boundaries. Our dog daycare owner strongly suggested I call Robert due to the fantastic results he saw with another aggressive dog that also attended the same daycare. I knew from watching the video of Robert and his dog Rabbeye that he would be able to fix "our" problem communicating with our dogs. We had many lengthy talks with Robert prior to boarding/training school. The day came for the dogs to leave us and go with Robert and I was hoping he wouldn't be on time so we could have more time before saying goodbye. Unfortunately for us Robert is extremely punctual. Watching him sweetly greet our dogs the first time put my nervous mind at ease. I knew I was handing my dogs over to a man who truly understands dogs and dog training. While our dogs were with him he made many calls to update us on the training. His easy going style of sharing his expertise helps us better understand and communicate with our dogs. Robert also has follow up group sessions for owner training. It brought tears to my eyes to see my dogs calmly practicing leash work around other dogs. As a 20 year educator I recognize a terrific teacher when I see one. Robert is very clear in his explanations and models what successful training looks like. I owe all our future adventures with our dogs to Robert Webb. Look out, World, The Kings are coming out to explore!

We adopted our little guy, Buddy, from a shelter in October of 2016. The poor guy was only ten months old and we were already his fourth (and forever!) home -- he had a lot of anxiety, he would tear things up if left alone for even a few minutes, and it was impossible to walk him due to all the pulling. When I found Karen, I was kind of at my wit's end. Karen called me back before the end of that day and we scheduled an evaluation. We went for seven sessions of private training, and not only is Buddy is a totally different dog now, but I'm a much better dog owner/Dad and our daughters are having a lot more fun with their little bro. Karen is obviously awesome at training dogs, but what she's really doing is teaching YOU all the techniques to be a good leader, which I really needed. Buddy is a much more confident and relaxed dog, and going on walks and playing with him are now really enjoyable for all of us and not mentally and physically exhausting. More great things about Karen: she's punctual, flexible, and very communicative. Also -- and this is important -- she totally knows what she's doing. She was firm but always very loving and gentle with Buddy. She loves what she does and she goes beyond the call of duty and I wish I would of met her sooner We continue our session tomorrow . I feel confident that we can continue and go even further with training (maybe we'll certify Buddy to be a Therapy " dog next, ), but occasionally I might need a pep talk to not feel bad about being "the boss." Karen has been able to read me very well, and even though tomorrow is our last session she makes me feel like I could text her any time if I had any additional questions or needed advice or a pep talk. The sessions were SO worth the investment!! Karen Thank you so much and I hope your ready for the next dog we are considering after the Magic you did working with Buddy .

January 16, 2016 I am very pleased to provide a testimonial for Kerri Lamorey of K9WAGIN Dog Training. I used to think that I was a pretty good dog guy but my meager skill pales in comparison to the encyclopedic knowledge and solid experience that Kerri Lamorey has with dogs. To say that she has mastered dog-think and behaviors would be an understatement. She is especially adept with herding dogs. I learned of Kerri when I watched her give a herding-dog demonstration at the Reno Celtic Festival. I thought of her a few months later after I rescued a twelve-month-old Border-Collie-Kelpie mix from a shelter in Salinas California. This high-power dog had been feral for most of its life and it was a calamity waiting to happen. I realized that I would need Kerri if this rescue dog and I were to have any hope of a future together. Twelve months later “HappyJack” is still a handful but that’s to be expected from a dog with the combined energy of an entire ranger platoon. Thanks to Kerri, Jack and I have learned to channel his enormous drive in productive ways. Kerri skillfully employs rational, compassionate, behavior modification to dog and human simultaneously. She is not afraid to voice her opinions honestly and with passion regarding all things dog. You have only to listen to her and incorporate her recommendations which she communicates tactfully, clearly, and respectfully to gain the dog you want to have. If having a balanced, secure, polite, obedient, well-behaved, eager-to-learn, dog is important to you, Kerri is the trainer for you. If having confidence that your dog’s behavior will be appropriate when introduced to anyone or to any situation is important to you, Kerri is your trainer. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

The Off Leash Training team was great! After thinking that my three legged mischief maker and his four legged brother couldn't be trained, I realized I was very much mistaken. From the first lesson on I saw constant improvement with my dogs and couldn't wait to go back. I wouldn't let anyone else train my dogs.
