Jennifer was willing to meet our needs, and offered alternative options for training our dog to stay in the yard with her electric fence. It turns out we had a rechargeable collar that wasn't holding charge. We replaced the system and our dog is now staying in the yard again. I want to thank Jennifer for bearing with us through the process. Lynn

Peter was a great trainer. He arrived early in the morning and we immediately set out to train my three month old puppy. He uses a lot of positive re-enforcement methods and showed us how to begin training a puppy. He gave us the basics and demonstrated how to use them. He's very patient and knows how to get into the mind of dogs! He also gave us a lot of tips on how to potty train, discipline, reward and followed up with me the next day. We have already seen results in many areas. I would highly recommend Peter to help you with training your dog or puppy

Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.

Lisa is an absolute professional who loves the dogs in her care. I used thumbtack to get quotes and she had the most competitive pricing. We met at her 7 acre farm and immediately began training my dog and retraining me. She desires the people with whom she works to be the best dog handling parents possible. We started with a one week program and we're so happy with the results that we bought another week of training. I can't recommend Lisa more highly. She is the absolute best dog trainer in my estimation.

My first experience with a private trainer for my pooch and I couldn't have asked for a better person. Sandy is professional yet down to earth, my dog, kokobutt, who is afraid of the world, loves her! "Aunty Sandy" is amazing at training and my dog has come a long way. I will continue to use her services and recommend her to anyone seeking assistance to train their dogs.

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.

It's hard to know who to choose when hiring any professional. I have an 8 month old German Shepherd, and after doing much research trainers, I decided to go with ACT K9. I was so impressed from the very beginning! During the evaluation, I met John and Lindsey and 2 of John's dogs. I have never met more trained dogs in my life. John's interaction with them was amazing. A week later we started training my dog, Sasha. After one lesson, she was already learning to heel. We have only had 2 lessons so far, but Sasha is already listening so much better. John and Lindsey really know what they're doing. The training is as much for me as it is for my dog. I'm so happy I chose them!!!

Susan has been handling and training our dogs for the breed ring since 1994. During that time, she has shown our dogs to over 20 US and international championships including a GCH, and the FCI World Champion. (There is only one per breed per year.) She has helped us evaluate litters as well. She has always been generous not only with her skills but her knowledge. We look forward to continuing to work with her.

Yvonne is AWESOME! a self proclaimed dog-person who won our cats over instantly. She clearly loves and values all animals! She took superior care of our 3 cats for a week (one of them needed meds) and took care of our house-related items as well. She stayed in contact and we felt secure that our fur babies were safe and happy the whole time. We couldn't have been more pleased.

Donna has great working with us (mom at 93, husband at 80 and me at 60) training our 10 month large black lab mix Sampson. She shows us how to do an exercise and then has us do it. Sampson is learning very quickly and his obedience improveso weekly. Love that she comes to house and works with us with environment distractions.

I went to Jezzie paws with a new 4 month old golden retriever who hadn’t had any training. Jessica is amazing. She trains in a loving and caring way using positive reinforcement. I would definitely recommend going to Jezzie paws for any kind of training. She can handle it all.

Jocelyn, owner of JW Pet Care, has been working with our family since the week we brought our Labrador puppy home. The thought of leaving our “baby” with anyone else, especially a person who we did not know, seemed unbearable at the time. When we first met Jocelyn, we were immediately impressed with her strong knowledge base, impressive experience, and most importantly, her comfort level and warm, natural interaction with our dog. Jocelyn’s innate love for animals shined through immediately, which really calmed our nerves! Jocelyn has consistently provided great care. She arrives within the requested time frame, feeds, plays with, and loves our dog! Each time she visits, she sends at least one, but often several, photo or video updates. What a comfort it is to know that while we are at work, our dog is receiving so much attention and TLC. As a business owner, Jocelyn is responsive, professional, understanding, and fair. I appreciate her flexibility and willingness to work with our constantly changing schedules. I have never felt like this is just a business to Jocelyn; this is her passion. We feel blessed to have found her.

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!

I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.
