We boarded our dog with Brett at Mischeivous K9 in March 2013 while on a 10 day vacation. This is a very nice facility. Especially like the large indoor/outdoor kennels. Your dog has lots of room to move around and can go freely from inside to outside. Brett spent time with our dog every day. He even taught him new tricks/commands during his stay. We feel our dog is well taken care of here. Brett is caring and committed to the animals he takes care of and we feel lucky to have a place to leave our dog that we feel good about. We were so impressed to learn of Brett's knowledge and expertise in training dogs, we have since hired him for obedience and protection training.

I cannot say enough about Lucretia Jeffrey. She came into a home occupied by a disabled man and not only cleaned a filthy house but cleaned out his dog's kennel and did laundry! She also came on a day when everything was closed due to 10" of snow because she knew how badly the house needed to be cleaned.

OK, let’s face it, Gringo, my German Shepherd, is very spoiled! He is my “baby”. The owner, Brett, says he is a “wuss”….but doesn’t hold it against him! He is pampered at home, so when we travel, I don’t like to have to feel guilty about leaving him. I like Mischievous K9 for boarding because this facility is always clean and smells good. Gringo’s personal kennel is large with a doggie door to go in and out whenever he pleases. It is air conditioned and heated so he stays comfortable whether it is summer or winter. Gringo gets plenty of food and treats and has water available at all times. Brett is a dog lover himself so I feel he enjoys spending one-on-one time with my dog every day he is there. Cleanliness, space, comfort, interaction and safety are the things I look for in a boarding facility and Mischievous K9 provides all of these and more! Brett will even post daily pictures and videos of your dog on Facebook so you can check in on him while you are away. We learned of Brett’s knowledge and experience with training dogs when we boarded our dog at his facility while on vacation. Our dog was a year old when we started obedience and protection training with Brett. We are totally impressed with how much our dog has learned in just the first ten weeks of training. Even others who visit our home frequently have notice the improvement in our dog’s behavior. Actually, the most difficult part has been training me, the owner!!! Our dog has caught on very quickly and Brett has been very patient trying to bring me, the owner, up to par. We look forward to working with and learning more from Brett as we continue our training. It has become very satisfying and fun and has created a better relationship between me and my dog. Thanks Brett!

    About

    My work stands out from others because of the education I obtained at the World-renowned Triple Crown Academy in Texas. We were given the knowledge of how dogs think, work, and move, in addition to hands-on experience that was beyond compare--with two of the nations top dog trainers critiquing our every move. I couldn't have gained that kind of education in 20 years in the field.

    About

    Dear dog owners, Are you busy? Do you have no time on your schedule to take your dog(s) out on a lovely walk? Well, no problemo! That is why I am here to assist you; to help walk your awesome dog(s). My name is Merry Le. I am a 19-year-old college student. I grew up with many pets in my household, from rabbits to hamsters, kittens, birds, snakes and turtles -- you name em'! It was mostly dogs though. Right now, I have two dogs of my own. I have had them for nine years and counting. Even though, I am a college student, I go to church, I sing live, I play sports, etc., I still make time out of my day. Everyday, I can be active with them, take them outside, feed them and give them a bath. Dogs are different from other pets because of the saying, "A dog is a man's best friend." They are always excited the moment you get home. When you walk through that door, they're jumping all over you like there's no tomorrow! They cheer you up even when you've had a bad day. They are there for you. They are loyal, loving, protective, playful, etc. To me they're like family. I am very responsible. I will take care of your dog(s) and watch them carefully. I don't believe in abuse or harming your pet in any way. I am a friendly, trustful, honest and peaceful person. If you're interested in my service, contact me by my number or my email. I check it daily, and I always have my phone with me.

    I train all sizes and all breeds. I can help with behavior modification and just the basic. I do work on Saturdays only. That way, I can work a lot with the dog and the owner. I am a full-time student and a mother, so I do not want to take up your time. When it comes to dogs, you want them to be on their best behavior just like your kids.

    About

    Our focus is on the relationship and communication between people and their dogs. We go beyond what is seen on the outside and focus on teaching people how to use a dog's behavior as a pathway to how their dog is feeling so they can be sure to have training sessions that are positive, productive, and fun!
