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

    (80 reviews)

    Sandy J.

    Earl has been wonderful to work with. He is a man of great knowledge and understanding of dogs and how to train them. He works on training us, through providing us much information and through personal example. Then we work on training our Bella, our 8 month old puppy. Earl has worked with her (and us) twice in our home and has made sure we understand that he is there for us any time we need him for questions and personal training. I have full faith, that with Earl, we will achieve our goal of Bella becoming a therapy dog.

    Melissa is awesome! She kept in touch while I was out of town, sent videos, pictures and updates throughout the week. I needed help with my dogs basic commands and she learned a lot in a weeks time! I would 100% recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future!

    Dave H.

    Jeff did an amazing job helping my daughter train her Emotional Support K9. We tried another trainer before calling on Jeff. He made the process easy by being flexible with the schedule and coming to our house (or local business) to train. I highly recommend Jeff!

  5. #5 For The Dogs Training

    (12 reviews)

    Nichole F.

    Maris was so professional, from the moment she arrived. She immediantly focused on the dog and observed his behaviors. She was so nice to work with, and asked us what our goals were with this dog. I also personally felt validated when she told us this dog was a liability; it was good to hear and needed to be said.

    Earls K9 Services AKA The Original Kansas City Dog Whisperer

    (80 reviews)

    I contacted Earl after we brought home a 9 week old Beagle puppy. We felt overwhelmed and didn't know how to deal with the "puppy stage" of having a dog. Earl was quick to respond to my messages and we were able to meet with him the same week. Before we even met him in person, he emailed us videos and articles about training that were incredibly helpful. He was so good with our puppy in person. He was a great listener and really worked hard to address every single issue and concern we had. He even worked with my two young daughters to help them interact with the puppy. He didn't just recite a bunch of dog training information. He listened and addressed our needs for our particular situation. Less than a week after he came, I emailed him with more puppy concerns. Instead of emailing me ideas or suggestions, he actually came back again for a follow up visit to help us work with the puppy. Yes... he really came over a second time in one week. (No charge). You can tell that it's more than just a job for him. He is incredible with our puppy... and truly cares about helping our family. I am so glad to have met him and to have him as a resource any time I need doggie advice or help. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone needing any kind of training help with their dog or puppy. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could.

    Manners PuPlease

    (19 reviews)

    Melissa went above and beyond to help us with our puppy! She even picked up and dropped off our pet and stayed to work with us at the end of the week, on how to continue our dog's training. I like that Melissa works with your dog in her home to train them on manners that you will need in the household. She was very patient, positive, and effective. We now have a much better mannered pooch, thanks to Melissa!

    K.I.S.S. Dog Training

    (12 reviews)

    I have taken three classes from Mike. His training techniques are simple and work well. I love his "pod" format. It is perfect for busy people who still want to train their pooch. I think his prices are fair and he is very open with advice about all dog related issues even if they are unrelated to the class. I have taken obedience classes with two different dogs and a Therapy dog class. I highly recommend KISS dog training!
