Our experience with Earl was great. He was knowledgeable about methods to help our dogs. He provided great tools and advice to help us with training our puppy and helping our older dog cope. It turned out our dogs didn't need as much help as we thought!
Great job training our puppy. Works well with scheduling, highly recommended!
These guys are great! They leave journal and write in it every day so I know how my pup did on walk/visit. Show up on time. Very responsive and okay with last minute changes. I also used their obedience training for my dog and we are improving every day!
I needed someone to take care of my new puppy and I only had a day to find someone. She responded right away to my inquiry and came that same day to meet my puppy. Once I meet Melissa I knew right away I had found someone who had a special connection with animals and that my puppy would be in excellent hands. I highly recommend her!
We have been using the dog walking and sitting services for over 2 years. We are very happy with the care our dogs receive. When we come home from vacation and the dogs are dropped off, they are well cared for and in good health. They get very excited to leave on vacation when we do as well and Like Summor and Shawn a lot. When our dogs have had health issues, we are always updated. Our one dog is loving, but dumb and eats a lot of non-food items. Summor, Shawn, and their staff always let us know when she has had any suspicious ingestions or colorful stools. Our Dog Duke got a cut right before we left for vacation. Summor took him to our vet when it started to look infected and got the care he needed. They are prompt with online billing invoices, quotes, etc. I have no complaints and only praise for their service and am a very happy customer!
We are now on the road to having a well trained dog and will use this service again in the near future for more advice and experience.
professional people with great dog instincts. They are experienced and able to work with any dog. I have seen them take the time and patience to get an aggressive dog to a positive outcome. I would trust them with my dogs. Highly recommend.
Jeff at Show Me K9 Dog Training has helped my dog go from pulling on walks, lunging and barking at dogs, etc. to walking without pulling, looking up and listening for direction, and now knows come, sit, off, wait, heel, and place after only two lessons. Jeff is always willing to answer questions in between sessions at any time of day, gives great directions for me during the week, and very helpful feedback on our progress during lessons. Feels good to throw away the harness and relax on walks with my Buddha! I HIGHLY recommend Show Me K9 Dog Training!
Angela has a very high level of knowledge in both dog behavior and dog training. She was always on time for each appointment and was willing to stay a little late to make sure I understood each facet of the training. You can tell she loves dogs and loves helping people train their dog. She would always return my call when I had questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone serious about training their dog.
I have a black lab mix name Missy and she is not the best behaved dog outside of our house. We have issues with her pulling while she walks and also with aggression towards other dogs. Missy has started to work with Mike. Missy immediately showed improvement by not pulling and letting me lead the walk. He has also given me tips for walking Missy which have worked great including having her sit before crossing the street and getting her to lay down when other dogs approach. Additionally Mike has brought Missy to interact with his dogs as a start and she has shown no aggression towards them. I am not saying everything is solved, but Missy is off to a great start thanks to Mike!!!
I live in clean homes. I was trained by my brother as far as basically training hunting dogs of any type, but not pit bulls and German shepherds.
I listen to what my clients want and respect what they want. I focus on what im doing and give my all.
