Dawn is seriously such a great trainer, she is currently training our dog Mia for aggression, and after just 2 sessions we have seen so much improvement already. We are truly blessed to have found her and we cannot wait to keep working with her. We truly recommend her for anyone that is having trouble with their dogs!

What is there not to say?! Shawn knows how to train but more importantly, she knows how to train people. A dog is trainable . . . give the dog the command and the dog will follow. Reinforcement and the training of people is where the key to success of dog training is or not. Got it Shawn. Your words did not fall short on this girls ears. If you are looking for someone who will get you to start believing that your pet can truly behave then you need not look farther. Shawn Kwiatkowski will get both pet and owner walking in line together... The end result a behavin' relationship.

I run a dog training business (sk9t.net) and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!

We got a puppy and were having a lot of potty training issues. Myke was able to put our minds at ease, as I was quickly coming to my wits end. He was very patient with our dog and showed us a lot of good training exercises to work with the puppy’s behavior and potty training problems. Even Myke agreed that our dog was a little stubborn on potty training but didn’t give up until we learned a strategy that worked for our pup. We are happy to report that our puppy is doing a lot better. Some in house accidents, due to her not fully undersnading how to get our attention to go outside, but she at least sits by the back door and tries to wait for us. Life has been difficult with a one year old toddler and a puppy but Myke helped us a lot and we just have to continue with his techniques and I’m sure this pup will be a cherished pet for many years!

United K9 has been great so far! It's not like obedience training and really does take a more deep-rooted approach to change behavior rather than simple commands and repetition. We have a lab/boxer mix who's very high energy and tends to be anxious and dominant. We have worked with Ashley and she's gone over the basic rules of the house as well as nutrition and other key pieces of information - our dog has responded well to the rules so far and it's allowed her to have more confidence in us as her leaders. Ashley has also been very prompt with setting up last minute visits to go over some of our dog's more difficult behaviors and we appreciate her patience while we continue to work through things! We would definitely recommend United K9, especially if you have a stubborn pup and think you'll need multiple sessions.

Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!

We met Kelley 5 yrs ago when I was looking for a puppy trainer. I was Given a business card from my vet. I contacted Kelley and we decided to meet. I was so impressed how she worked . It became so clear it was not puppy training but human training. I enjoyed my first meeting it went by so fast I could not wait till it was time for another visit. And Toby couldn’t wait for the amazing treats she had. Kelley is a very passionate in what she does to help everyone learn how to work together. Her knowledge in her craft is second to none in my opinion. I have recommended Kelley now for 5 years.

    Excellent service provided. I have had the honor to see training sessions with Mr. McCall and it is amazing to see how he can easily train you to train your dog. I have also seen the outcome of him raising an intelligent American Bulldog, dash. The things dash was able to do after Mr. McCall worked with him would blow your mind. Dash is always loved and truly missed. Much success to your Mr. McCall.

    I will treat your pet as I treat my five babies. I will make sure that they are fed and have clean water. I can give any medications. I have a dog of my own that requires that. I will walk them and play with them. I can do anything you need me to do. I can also take care of other animals; I grew up on a farm. I have no problem with anything but lizards and snakes.

      One on one, my dog is great. He was crate trained for his first year and a half and now has complete freedom without and issues. He is obedient, loyal, etc., but he does have some fear aggression issues. He cant handle children and gets very protective of me around strangers and individuals who show any sort of discomfort/fear around him. Id really like to get this fixed so that I can involve him in more social activities without it becoming a problem.
