He was very helpful and explained everything in detail, my dog was very stubborn, however, he was able to learn within the two hours he worked with us. He taught him how to walk alongside us calmly within just the first hour, which were were never able to achieve. He was thorough with his teaching and made sure we understood everything he said. He gave us advice in not just training, but how we should feed him and care for him! He answered all of our questions and concerns we had. He went above and beyond for our puppy.

Where do I begin..I did the board and train with Klutch K9 training after a consultation of what my Dice needed! Complete game changer, I got dice from the humane society and he is a rambunctious puppy to say the least! Klutch K9 is informative, knowledgeable and kept me informed the whole time on Dices progress. He came back better behaved and his progress from before and after was impressive! The tips and advice itself was worth it ,to learn more about my dog and what he needs is refreshing and informative…I am looking forward to doing more work with them in future! Great communication, great expertise and great people!

Chris and Sasha are amazing! They definitely show how much care and respect they have for the dogs they train. Chris took in my 17 month German Shepard that had a lot of behavioral issues and anxiety: now my dog’s energy is more calm yet still playful. They consistently kept me in the loop of Bruno’s progress and sent me short videos of his training. Anytime I had questions while Bruno was in training the responses were immediate. I absolutely had the most confidence that Bruno was in the right hands!

Chris and Sasha were very helpful and profesional from the very first phone call. They informed my wife and I of everything and what to expect of 3 week board and train. We had them train our 4 month old German Shepard mix puppy. We got constant videos and pictures every week and once a week updated phone calls. Our dog Luna was a completely different dog when she came home from the training. Chris stayed with us for over an hour when he dropped off Luna to show us the trainings and help us continue the training with Luna. Luna isn’t perfect, but she is far better than what she was when she left us. Chris kept reminding us that she is a puppy still and she is going to not get everything right first time, but just continue training and implementing the ground work they instilled in her and all will be good. Completely satisfied with the service!!

FAQs

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    Recently I worked with a lovely family that had a very sweet but reactive dog. The dog and humans were speaking two different languages and it caused a lot of tension and stress. I was able to help remedy the situation with Obedience 101- 6 week course. I personally came out and worked with the dog and family 90 minutes every week. I was able to provide the family with all the tools they needed to create a happy and lasting bond.
