Stephen Kalil -confident without the cocky, makes you feel like you knew how to do this dog training stuff, he's just guiding you. Professional, punctual and a pleasure to work with.Oct 12, 2019Verified
Steve is an amazing dog trainer. Our Labrador, Sitka, was going through some adolescent against which made it very hard to manage his behavior at home let alone in public. He growled at a vet and snarled at some people. He was becoming unpopular in the neighborhood and rilJun 15, 2019Verified
Stephen is legit amazing. Today was my first and only training session with my 11 mon old German Shepard Maxi and day one he has trained her how to walk on a leash, sit, heal, stay. I thought she was super aggressive but Stephen showed me how to better control my dog and she really isn’t. I’m going to continue training with Stephen and can’t wait for our next session next week. He truly saved my dog A+ from me !!! 🤗👋Oct 31, 2018Verified
Not done training yet but after the first two weeks my dog is almost the dog I have always wanted... have already recommended Steve to a couple other people..Jul 26, 2018Verified
I was in desperate need of help because my two year old Labrador became aggressive over food, toys, and my attention. I had to do something and something fast. I called K9 academy and was in utter shock at how awesome they are! The trainer hung up the phone with me and came right to us to help us. I’m overjoyed with the fact that my dog Whiskey has been doing this for five days and I have a different dog already. I’m so excited for the process to continue and would recommend K9 Academy to anyone and everyone!Jun 22, 2018Verified
