Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am located in the Statesboro, GA area. There is no such thing as an untrainable dog. The true changes come with the education of the owner. I work to do both. You cannot have change without proper education. I truly enjoy my work and I also understand my craft. I have worked for many years to learn as much as possible and I still learn something new with every client. **I am also able to provide fully trained dogs for those who are looking to purchase a trained dog and I also have puppies available. Contact me for more information**. I offer individual sessions, group sessions, on-line coaching, and board and train. Feel free to use FB to message me instead of this platform. My business name is The K9 Effect. I also offer my services to departments and agencies that may be struggling with their dog(s) and/or habdlers. I teach humans as much as I train dogs. Packages are available for varied prices. Pricing is dependent on the type of program, number of dogs, and the issues/goals, etc. The fist step is a consultation (free), so once that is done we can get started!

I have a 3 Year Old Siberian husky who is very very very stubborn. He is a great dog but very stubborn and what I thought to believe untrainable. Kerri instantly changed my thought process on the situation. She is absolutely great. At first I only had her come out twice a month for trainings, after seeing how well they were going I chose the border package. My dog came back 100% different. He actually listens to every command. He is still playful and jolly but he listens. He is great with my newborn son and wife and I can’t thank Kerri enough. She is great at her job and loves her job. It isn’t just about money for her. Plus anytime I go out and need a doggy sitter she is there for only $25 a day. So if you are looking for someone to love and train your pup she is the person. Her prices are the lowest in town and she is a veteran whose job was to train and work with military police dogs.

Details: 1 dog • 2 - 10 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private dog training lessons • Aggressive behavior modification • Leash pulling • Barking • Biting • I travel to the dog trainer • The dog trainer travels to me

Let me tell you about Kerri, she is such a wonderful trainer. She took both of my babies and turned them into the most polite dogs I have met. Now my dogs had mild to severe separation anxiety when they first went with her and now they are so independent. I started speaking to Kerri last November about having training started when we moved to Georgia from Jersey and let me tell you she made me so comfortable about this process. She will keep you updated via text/Snapchat and post videos and pictures to show you updates which made it easy to see that they were in good hands. Being as my husband is military I felt like she was a good fit being prior military background and knew what we needed for our living situation and how behaved our dogs needed to be. What stood out the most to me is how involved she gets with your dogs, and how they’re like her own. I will never forget picking up Cleo and her saying goodbye telling her how she will miss her sleeping by her bed and wanting attention by putting her head on your lap. That resonated with me on a deep level that when it comes down to training again I’d always choose her. She has proven to be the most caring trainer I’ve met and will make sure your babies have the bed experience possible. I wish that all the other trainers I’ve met could take a page from her book on the values she has in place with her business and loves each animal like they will be theirs forever. So if there is any hesitation on hiring Kerri I’d tell you that you’re crazy. This woman is the closest thing to a miracle you’ll meet and you won’t be sorry for hiring her. She makes you feel like her family and continues so after training.

I loved how personal yet knowledgeable and professional she was. She made me feel at ease just after our first training session. My dog loved her and so do I! I would highly recommend to anyone needing to train their dog in the most effective way. She taught me some tips and tricks in how to train my pup along with how to maintain it. I cannot wait to continue our training journey with her. I know she is someone I can depend on!

Kerri was very professional but also so comfortable to talk to about the issues with our dog. She came to our house and met our dog and I feel like I had made a new friend. She responded immediately to our emails and let us know what she thought we should do. I know that in the future if I needed help with my animals that I would definitely call Kerri.

So grateful I went with Kerri! The whole process she was very honest, and open. She answered all of my questions. Trust me I had a lot. I also loved that she treated archer as one of her own. I am so glad we worked with her. I highly recommend her services! She is very passionate about her job!
