Kawa Farms K-9 Training has been working with me and my beautiful boarder collie now for over a month and she is learning all kinds of positive behaviors, thanks to Kawa Farms. The instructors truley listen to your needs as a pet owner and are 100% willing to do whatever it takes to make you and your pet reach your goals together. The thing I like best is that they understand each breed of dog and actually work with you to understand your pets behavior. I have full confidence that they have the knowledge and skills to provide superior training that will lead to a healthy and happy relationship with you and your pet for years to come.

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!

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.

I absolutely love animals and have 5 pets, 1 of which is my canine best friend. I have great experience with aggressive breed dogs, large and small. I am very patient and agree that dogs respond to a certain type of care. My ultimate goal is to gain a career in animal housing and care. I am a full supporter of breed equality. I have sat for family members and close friends in the past, and recently realized that I could provide those services to others who need them. I have a few regular clients, and have a 5-star Rover review. I have a great respect for the different methods of training/raising an animal and have a vast knowledge of animal care and breed types. I am available during the day and on weekends. I am in college and have a full-time job, but will go out of my way to accommodate. A great business relationship with you will turn into a great friendship with your dog(s). Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this page, my mission or references, please contact me below. All emails will be responded to within 24 hours of the last email received.

I walk dogs and play with them, and I make sure that they are OK and are healthy. I make sure that they are well taken care of, and they get their playtime. I give them treats if they do sit when I tell them to sit.
