  1. #1 Earls K9 Services AKA The Original Kansas City Dog Whisperer

    (83 reviews)

    Katrina H.

    We contaced Earl to help us with our 2 dogs (Smooth Collie & German Shepherd mix) and their aggression towards people and other dogs. Earl gave us some great tips and helped teach us to correct the behavior. We saw immediate results while Earl was at our house. However I wasn't sure how things would go once Earl left. My husband and I took our dogs on a walk last night and we were amazed. Our dogs are 5 and 4, and we have never been able to take them both on a walk together without at least one of the dogs having a meltdown. The weather is nice, so there were plenty of people and dogs outside, kids playing, loud noises everywhere and both dogs were able to remain calm. And when the dogs got worked up by noises, kids, other dogs, etc., we were able to calm them down quickly and easily. We are absolutely amazed! We know that we still have some work to do with our dogs, but we've already seen an enormous improvement so far. I am so glad we met Earl!

Earls K9 Services AKA The Original Kansas City Dog Whisperer

(83 reviews)

Earl Newland was inspired by his mentor, a former chief army canine instructor, who, despite of his paralysis (quadriplegic), still ran his large dog kennel. He urged Earl to get into the trade as people always need help training dogs regardless of the state of the economy.

The greatest challenge for Earl was getting the experience and knowledge. For 30 years, he built his reputation and authority as a K9 instructor/behavior consultant. Apart from a scientific approach, Earl embraces a modern view of corrections.

Teaching people to train their own dog is what I believe in, not hiring someone else to do it. I teach the most modern and humane methods and offer free phone consultations for anyone and especially for rescue dogs. I keep my clients happy by offering unlimited follow up at no extra charge.

Show your best care to your pet/s by learning to communicate with them effectively. Tap Earl and help your dog become the best buddy he can be to you and to the rest of the family.

    Melissa is AWESOME! We brought home a brand new puppy, that spent 3 weeks with her first, and our new puppy knows how to sit, stay, not chew on things she shouldn't, and goes to the door when she needs to potty. She sent us updates with her progress, and posted many videos on her Facebook page for us to check out. Excellent communication with Melissa! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for puppy and/or dog training! Thank you soooo much Melissa! Chad and Jennifer Cross

    For The Dogs Training

    (12 reviews)

    Maris is an incredibly knowledgable and experienced trainer and breeder, whose work can only be characterized by her deep understanding of a canines own true nature and therefore lack of certain human qualities that we all as dog owners tend to believe our animals posses. She is forthright in her ability to discern between a behavioral problem that begets modification, and the unfortunate genetic problems typical dog owners find more difficult to understand. This ability has allowed her to bring hope back in the homes of families who have found themselves feeling distressed and helpless, particularly when the costs of typical behavioral modification and training may be a deal breaker. We adopted a shelter dog who was severely abused, and suffered from extreme anxiety and fear, specifically of the male gender. It was recommended by our vet that we consider euthanasia, as the safety of my children and anyone who came into the home was of primary importance. As a dog lover who has only raised wonderful family dogs from young puppies, I felt helpless when I realized that this poor damaged young pup we had made a part of our family, was indeed troubled and that his escalating behavior was putting serious strain on not only our family, but the other two great dogs we already raised. Giving up was never an option, the pup had clearly chose my young son at adoption, so I immediately began searching for help with behavior modification both online and through the vet. After speaking with several trainers and one dog psychologist over the phone, it became clear that our family would never be able to afford the help our dog so desperately needed. I finally searched specifically for "dog behavior modification Kansas" online, and found Maris's website. She had a wealth of information and educational materials that not only gave me hope, but proved to me that as a trainer, she truly knew what she was doing. When we spoke in the phone, I explained to her what a serious situation we were in with Sam, and that the vet suggested euthanasia. She immediately calmed my fears and offered to come over and evaluate Sam. Maris never promised that he would be a good candidate, nor that only a session or two would would magically fix the problem, but she did promise to give us her honest opinion at a price my family could afford. After our evaluation, it was clear she could work with Sam, and at the same time train us as a family in how to make things work by being his leaders. There was no time limit on our visits, she didn't charge by the hour, and was in no hurry to rush through a session in order to get to another clients home. After three months of weekly visits, Sam had gone from a fearful broken dog, to a dog that clearly wanted to work to please us. I could not, and would not recommend any other trainer but Maris to anyone. Not only is Maris wonderful at what she does, but she offers her clients a type of affordable personalized service that no other trainer can. There is nothing Maris could ever possibly do better for families, she is simply amazing.
