Jennifer is exactly what we needed. We had to surrender our dog due to aggressive behavior. From the first moment I contacted her I knew she would tell me the truth and do what needed to be done for everyone involved to have a happy life. She sat down with us an explained how we had gotten to the point, why she felt she could not help us train him and then held our hand through the entire process. What was awesome was when we sat down with her she listened heard our story asked us questions to really understand what we need from her, then gave her honest opinion. Her knowledge of the anxiety and behavior our dog was exhibiting was very helpful in our decision. I have talked with multiple trainers who said they could help or offered support and fell through or gave false hope. Jennifer is not that at all. She has checked in with me every day, answering any questions that I had. I felt like she was in my corner. I can not thank her enough for making sure not only I was okay but so was my dog. She is a trainer that will give you her best no matter what. It has been such a pleasure working with her during a very hard time in our lives!!!!!

Unbelievable. I have a 12 week old Australian Cattle mix and almost no experience in training dogs. Peter is extremely professional, kind, and experienced. He came right on time to my house at 5:30AM and brought treats for my puppy and even gave me a clicker. I noticed a clear difference in my puppy and Peter helped me to understand more about animal behavior. I look forward to our next session this coming week! He is outstanding!

Theresa's love for animals and patience is untouchable. She provided me with detailed notes and feedback from our sessions. I saw an incredible change in my dog's behavior and manners. I would strongly recommend Theresa. Even after my sessions were over, she has remained a resource.

After a move my mini Aussie puppy became fear aggressive. Amanda helped me to understand my puppy's behavior and mitigate it before it became a bigger issue. I loved the positive behavior techniques and my Maizy was quick to understand what we were asking of her! Would recommend her 💯!!

We gave FIVE STARS but would give TEN if we could! Lisa is the BEST trainer ever! We have three dogs and each of them have been with Lisa at one point or another over the past year. She takes the time to discuss our training needs, talks through some options and let’s us decide how we want to proceed. Two of our dogs were with her for a week and one for three days and all came back COMPLETELY different dogs; quiet, calm, respectful. They had been bickering and not listening and she fixed it completely. Our dogs are responsive, attentive, eager to please and fun (again) to be around! Lisa’s pricing is WELL worth what she charges because she gives SO much to each dog while in her care and accomplishes incredible things in the short time they are with her! They have training lessons many times during the day as well as play time with other dogs. She shows them new things and helps them not be afraid. She is patient, kind and has a HUGE effect on dogs’ behavior. There is NO one out there like her!! Thank you, Lisa!!

I would recommend K9 to 5 to anyone wanting to learn how to train their dog as well as behavior modification. I have been working with them for only a couple weeks now and have seen a huge improvement in my dog's behavior.

I originally started showing my Samoyeds many years ago after being trained by Sue and her husband Bill. I showed three dogs to their Championship titles, also attending Westminister Kennel Club with Sues encouragement. My latest Samoyed has been the biggest challenge yet. After many bad experience obedience classes, private trainers and issues that were getting increasingly worse, far beyond my capabilities, I contacted Sue to see if she could help with his behavior, and although a long shot at the time, my stretch goal was to get him into the show ring. Not only did she identify his problems but she has been very patient and caring while working with him to build his confidence and never gave up on him when others had. He has complete trust in Sue and is always so excited to see her and her daughter Katherine. After a very active Fall show schedule, I am very proud to say he is only one major away from his Championship title. He has come so far and I am so proud of him and the fantastic work that Sue has done with him. I admire her sportsmanship and professionalism and am very grateful for all she has contributed to be able to be at the point we are at.

Lesli took the best possible care of my cat while we were away for 10 days. The cat is not young (12 years old), spoiled and had just traveled from France but Lesli managed to win her affections and trust very quickly. Diki ate well, loved being brushed and cuddled and was a happy girl when we returned home. Lesli clearly loves animals and understands that extra-special attention we all want for our beloved pets. She sent photos and reports daily that provided great reassurance. It is always hard to leave an animal, but now I know we can rely on Lesli if we must be away.

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.

I have been working for lucky dogs daycare for about a year and a half. My experience with lucky dogs has been a great one. We are still a growing business and are building up our facility to be the best it can be. We are a full service daycare facility, but we also do boarding, training, grooming and we have our new retail shop with all sorts of goodies for your pups. I love being able to bring my dog Buffy in for a groom. She's older so she doesn't care for daycare, but she loves coming to Lucky Dogs for a good pampering by Jane. All of our groomers are great at what they do and our experts in their field. They have been grooming for many many years. The best part about working for lucky dogs would have to be the dogs. We have a really good group of dogs that come pretty much everyday. At lucky dogs your dog isn't just another name on a list, every staff member has their own favorites lol. And throughout the day each dog gets some one on one attention with their favorite staff member and vice versa. We take the time to get to know each dog and their behaviors, and try to cater to each dogs individual needs. So we can ultimately have a safer group of dogs to play with each day. We also have a really good group of staff members, some of them have been here for a couple years and a few have been here a little less. We really don't have a high turn around rate for staff like with most daycares. So our staff and especially the dogs are like family here.

When first calling, the process was made really simple and all questions I had were answered and put me at ease. The fees/registration for classes is very competitive as I looked around at different places. Having gone there for Puppy classes, I was a bit skeptical at first. Not anymore - Not only do I love the facilty but our trainer Jenn is amazing. I have also signed Drago up for Obedience thru Champion with Jenn and cannot wait to start. Would definitely recommend ALL that have animals to check Champion Kennels out!!!!!

I was nervous about bring my puppy Finn back to Boston after having a couple days of training in RI, but she helped me to feel more confident to take care of him and continue with training on my own for a few days. Her knowledge about dog behavior really helped me to under stand what I need to do to help my puppy understand me, and for me to understand him. I can't show enough gratitude that she drove all the way to Boston to help me, and I would recommend her to anyone dealing with training.
