Cathy was Awesome!!! I was very pleased. She was so good with my elderly dog. He loved being pampered and even ran around like a puppy after his wonderful bath. Cathy did a great grooming job, nails, ears and even brush my Baby Bear's teeth... Good Price Too

I have been extremely happy with my dog training experience with Jennifer. She has been very helpful with getting both my dogs well adjusted in ever day life. I had two dogs out of control on leashes and out of control in my home. I now feel so much more confident with their behavior it has been my best financial decision.

Lisa provided help with our 8 month old puppy with behavior training. She is a dog whisper. Our puppy is now super responsive to commands, this all after one week with Lisa. Lisa is kind and has a great reward based approach with training. Puppy is a breeze to walk, sits when we stop and stays put for almost 5 minutes now. He is consistently listening for commands verse making his own decisions. We are so impressed! If you are looking for confidence building in both your dog and yourself, Lisa is your trainer. She not only puts the time in with our puppy but takes time to make sure you know the commands, how to work consistently with them and follow through with each family member. In addition, Lisa has sent 2 follow up emails checking on his/our progress. Can't thank her enough!

Sandy led the second round of training for my 2-year old rescue dog. Our first training class offered at a major pet retail chain was OK, but the training was a little disorganized. Sandy corrected the earlier training, offering really practical and helpful advice for me to work with my dog. Each training lesson built on the previous one, so the learning was reinforced. And best of all, Sandy really loves her job and her students! (And my dog is always happy when he sees her!) I recommend Sandy highly!

John is very professional and knowledgeable. He was quick to establish a rapport with us and our dog, Jimmy. We would highly recommend him for dog training and most of all dog bonding.

We hired Rebecca to help us with our new boxer puppy and his behavioral issues. She taught us clicker training for reinforcement of positive behavior and negative punishment for addressing the behavioral issues. She arrived promptly for each training session and often sent helpful tips and videos after each session. She even helped us to find a group puppy class to help socialize him. We were glad to find her and recommend her for your individual puppy training needs.

I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.

I have two dogs a German Shepherd and a husky they are both great dogs just needed help with more training in obedience after just one session both of my dogs are doing amazing and listening even better. Not only does he show you how to work with your dogs but he is a great person and willing to answer any question and he also doesn’t talk down to you or talk you like your stupid which was my experience with other trainers.

Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!

My experience has been wonderful! Jess treats my puppy like one of her own and I know they are both happy to see each other. Jess is very responsive and I have complete confidence in her taking care of my pets when I'm not home.

Otto is our 9-month-old, 100 pound Newfoundland who we were having a hard time training at home. He's loving and smart, but he can be stubborn when he thinks he can get away with it! We were introduced to Zach and Leila and quickly started their two-week, basic training course. We couldn't be happier with how things went! Otto is world's better at walking on the leash, greeting new people, sitting, laying down, staying in place, using his climb, and following the basic instructions every owner dreams of. They have taught us with patience and kindness and we have definitely seen the results in our big bear. He loved spending the day with them and their other furry clients. We cannot thank them enough and are excited to enter their advanced training course in a few months once we get in some more practice of these basic commands at home. Zach will even be stopping by to help us more with counter serving! Thank you so much Koda K-9 Services!

We have two large puppy/dogs. Joe took the first one for 6 weeks and she came back as a perfect little lady. The younger puppy was being a pain in the butt and starting to affect the newly polished training of the older dog. Joe drove an hour to our home and did a training session in our neighborhood to help make sure that they both stayed on the right path. That is pride in the product you create. We will be sending our youngest puppy to his board and train as well in another month! Worth it.
