Jacqui is an awesome trainer! Through her training & suggestions, our girl Molly has been more responsive to us. Through Jacqui’s positive re-enforcement we also now know a much better way to communicate with Molly. Her methods are basic & simple to follow so we can follow up with Molly’s “homework”. If you want a great dog trainer, Jacqui is the lady for you. She comes highly recommended by our family.

Training a 2 year old dog, who was trained to pee & poop on dog mats. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!~ Still working on that. A new dog would be nice. or go back 2 years. Jacquie is great but won't take my dog home with her. Still working on the above. LOL

We just met with Kristin last Monday and evaluated the situation with our foster dog Zelle. We got a good feeling from her and even more importantly, Zelle seemed to respond well to her. We agreed to schedule several follow-up sessions to work on Zelle's fears and behavioral issues. It's too early to give an accurate star rating, but fingers crossed, so far so good!

We are half way through our 6 week training of our puppy, and so far it has been amazingly successful! Our little Penelope is learning so quickly. Kristin really cares about the animals, and making sure you understand how to communicate the lessons to your pets on your own as well.

We had a great experience with our Trainer Renee. We recently adopted a Dachshund mix, Callie and the training has helped so much. We worked on Crate Training, Jumping and the biggest thing was pulling on the leash. Callie now happily goes to her crate, is so much better about not jumping and no longer choking herself pulling on the leash!

Renee was so great training our dog Emma who we adopted from Forever Home Rescue NE. Renee really has an insight into working with rescue dogs and knows how to cater to their different backgrounds and experiences. Emma is doing great and even passed her Canine Good Citizen Test!

Renee was excellent working with our small Lab puppy. She trained us and the dog together :) She seems to really know the nature and behaviors of dogs. I would highly recommend Renee to anyone looking to train their dog!

Ruth has cared for our pet birds many times. She is wonderful. Reliable, compassionate, and very conscientious. She went above and beyond what we even asked her to do. We felt very confident that our birds were receiving excellent care while we were away. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ruth to anyone looking for pet care.

Ruth has been doing pet visit for several years now and does an outstanding job. Among her many abilities she will train dogs to jog next to her while riding a bike, giving them a better workout and she is very patient with the pets.

While away for a brief vacation, Ruth took great care of my two guinea pigs. I will always trust Ruth to look after my furry friends in the future. She is definitely worth trusting to look after your pets.

I am thrilled with the progress Canine Solutions Training Services has made thus far with my dog, Daisy. I have a training session today, (I think it is more for me than the dog) I cant wait to see her progress! They are teaching me the tools I need to be my dogs handler. I am hoping to spend many more months (years) training with them. They have inspired me to work hard to bring out the best in my dog and make her a solid canine citizen and to be the best owner I can be for my dog. Thank you all for what you have done so far!

Chris saved our dog's life and greatly added to the quality of ours. We came to CSTS about 8 months ago, frustrated with our dog's aggressiveness toward other dogs and unpredictability around people. We were out of ideas. Chris' knack for identifying our dog's triggers and teaching us how to correct those triggers have left us very very satisfied customers!

I've known Josh for a while through dog sports, and always found him to be very approachable, willing to help, and constantly striving to improve his dog training skills by learning from the top dog trainers in the country. Thus, Josh was the best person I could think of to help me when I have having issues with dog-dog fights and aggression in my own household. I knew this was not an issue that could be resolved to simple "click and treat" type positive training, or by just "letting them work it out." Josh helped me lay out a solid game plan, with a step by step process that includes both obedience, and corrections for poor behavior, to build up to resolving this issue. He answered any questions or concerns I had, and has given me confidence that I am working toward a good result This was very important, because dog-dog aggression can be overwhelming, scary, and downright dangerous. I have great confidence in Josh's dog-training knowledge and dog training skills, and he is very compassionate and well-informed about the most effective, and modern dog training protocols. I am eager to see the results from implementing Josh's suggestions, and am now well on the way to getting me and my dogs' lives back to a happy, cohesive normal.

Joshua is an excellent, balanced dog trainer, a consummate professional who has the ability to size up a dog and handler quickly and then recommend strategies and protocols to address the issues at hand. His quiet demeanor gave both my dog and me the confidence we needed to move through our reactivity issues. I highly recommend Joshua and King K9 Academy.

Ms. Wendt has been grooming my two dogs, a Standard Poodle and Labradoodle for many years. She loves her job and it shows in the care she takes to achieve the perfect groom cut. My poodle has a traditional poodle cut, always looks fabulous and Lesley is great at picking up my slack, meaning I don't do well with maintenance:). She is also very respectful of the owner's wishes, whether it be "don't cut too short" or "please make a heart shape". She loves the difficult and fun grooms! Lesley loves animals, has a background with dog training and showing, which translates well in her ability to work with all dog personalities. You're dog will thank you. Melissa Young

Lesley is an excellent groomer. She always makes our little dog Patches look great. We get so many compliments from other people, tell us how cute our little doggie daughter looks. Lesley is also good about reminding us when Patches needs her nails trimmed too; in between grooming appointments. I highly recommend her, and her grooming skills.

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!

Zach was great! Lulu is a three year old lab, who pulled like crazy on leash. Within a few days she was better and by the end of training she was amazing. Zach was professional and a great guy to work with. He has a lot of chemistry with the dogs. Lulu was beyond excited to see him each day. I would definitely recommend him to others! Lisa, Evan & Lulu.

I have known Dave for the past 5 years and he has a consistent training style that has proven results. He helped me with my Spinone "Darby", Prize in her Natural Ability test (NA), as well as my Griffon "Frit", who prized in his Utility Prep Test (UPT), and who is now working on his Utility Training (UT). My Griffon completed his NA test with a "perfect score, maximum points, Prize I", on his first time out. Dave has trained many dogs and has proven winning results. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to see progress in training and obedience in their dog.

I’ve hunted over labs and pointing breeds for over 40 years and I have known and worked with a number of pro trainers. You can expect all good pros to steady a dog, teach force-fetch, etc. A very big difference is in their attitude and approach. Not the dogs; the trainers. Dave’s style has been refreshing and I enjoy working my dogs with him. I definitely learn, and all that shows up in the dog work.

Dave has worked with my wirehaired griffon and me for 2 1/2 summers now. He's trained the dog for obedience, steady to shot and retrieving with excellent results. Dave is very good at what he does.

Actually, Our dog has not gone yet as she was hit by a car and had to have surgery which also entails a long recovery period. Alex couldn't have been nicer about allowing us to delay our already scheduled appointment. I so appreciate her helping us this way. I will have more to report once we send our dog- probably some time in September.
