Chris is very knowledgeable, and had shown us how to control our dog. She was very much not liking him at first but after the first session she let him play with her, and that was a big accomplishment and im sure that there is so much more to come! Im very impressed with how much my dog has learned within just the first two sessions! 10/10 recommended for your personal dog trainer! We have had an immensely amount of training and guidance in this process so far! I am very pleased!

First of all Chris made us so comfortable he’s calm knowledgeable and put us at ease. I learned so much in the first session. He helped us to understand the mind of our dog and how to handle her wild ways. He was able to get our sheepadoodle to respond to commands immediately. I highly recommend Chris as his technique is very useful and helpful.

I dont ever write reviews, but the incredible training service this man offers has to be praised. I have a 2 + year old French bulldog, Sophie, who is the best dog I have ever had but has some stubborn persistent issues. Two of her main problems - rushing to the door and scratching it to shreds whenever anyone walked by and jumping up and down off the couch when doing so we’re adjusted after just one and a half hour training sessions with Chris @ Klutch K9. Chris taught her patience and w/ clicker training to go up and down the stairs we have for her for the couch and to be calm when anyone approaches or knocks on the door. Even issues that were not addressed have benefitted from the focus training he provided as another issue - her rushing to greet other dogs and show dominance - was magically curbed when I was walking Sophie this morning and I’ll I needed to do was call her name draw her attention use the clicker and have treats on the ready. Kind and gentle with my dog which I also greatly appreciated. I HIGHLY recommend Klutch K9 to anyone looking to adjust the behavior(s) of their dog, this man understands how dogs think and how to get them to behave thru positive reinforcement.

I had a hard time finding a trainer who would have the patience for my wild dog but Chris had the gentle touch needed to get me and my dog working together. He explained his program to me prior and I really appreciated that. Thanks Chris!

I had a really positive experience with klutch k9. Chris was able to show me what details to beware of with the behavior of my dog. He teaches positive reinforcement and the reasoning behind handling dogs. Thank you Klutch K9 10/10

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 dig 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.
