Amanda was really great to work with! She gave us very practical tips on how to correct our dog’s behavior and provided us with a lot of direction on how to work him outside of training sessions. She takes time with each client to understand what’s going on with the dog and recommends various tools that she thinks will specifically work for that dog. Our dog used to seriously go into attack mode anytime he saw someone he didn’t know. He had even bitten a couple of people. She helped us to understand his behaviors and *why* he was reacting to people the way that he was, and she gave us guidance on how to correct the behavior in a positive manner. He is a totally different dog. Sure, he’s still shy around strangers, but we can actually have people over without him trying to attack them and and we take him with us to friends’ houses, as well as out in public, without worrying that he’s going to attack. I would highly recommend Amanda!

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!

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 provide dog training. I've trained all of my dogs for show. All are awarded champions. I'm not a high-end trainer. I know the basics of obedience and agility but can work with your dog on individual habits that aren't acceptable. I can work up to training off leash.

I have worked with dogs my whole life and have assisted in dog Obedience classes for 5 years. I walk my own dogs for 2 hours everyday. A well behaved dog is a well exercised dog! $10/day $5/ nail trim $5/ light grooming By light grooming I mean brushing and trimming of hair on paws, if needed. I am NOT a groomer. I brush my own dogs daily and it really helps with shedding and it keeps them looking great!

I use every method that is available in order to achieve a successfully trained dog. I use every tool at my disposal including toys, treats, games, and correction in order to get the most out of each dog. I am not afraid of any dog and will work with an aggressive dog with no problem at all.
