Very professional, handled the dogs well, after one day of training there was a big difference in the dogs behavior. Took videos throughout the day and they are a very helpful tool for me to look back on.Mar 31, 2019Verified
Kevin is PHENOMENAL! He was very prompt with responding to my request for services. He gave me excellent recommendations for his training for what I wanted to do with my dog. I did his 3 day training and I feel like I have a different dog! Kevin takes the time to train your dog and you can tell. He took my Great Dane to different places to get him in different environments and socialize which i loved! Kevin is great, I can not recommend him enough. He truly is passionate about what he does and his results are amazing.Jul 12, 2019Verified
Kevin is great! He knows what he is doing. I adopted a dog who needed some training with food aggression. I recieved a response very quickly. He told me about everything he was doing and instructed me on how to continue training Michi.Mar 8, 2019Verified
Kevin was really easy to talk too, and he answered are questions in away that was easy for us to underfstand! He was Very professional! He helped us understand why and what we need to do to stop the aggressive biting from my 9 week old Rottweiler. Since he left it’s been so much better! Now it’s up to use to take the tools we learned today, and continue to use them so ‘KARMA” can have the best life possible! We will be using him in the future when Karma is older for age appropriate training. I would absolutely recommend dog owners that need training to use KEVIN’S K-9 training. Thank you again!Feb 26, 2019Verified
Kevin has been a fantastic trainer! We did the 5 day program for our Great Dane pup who was basically scared of everything. Kevin worked one on one with her to introduce and socialize her in many different environments. He is very calm and sweet with dogs and is extremely knowledgeable. He sends videos through out the day of our dog’s progress and breaks down his methods and thought process. I look forward to working more with Kevin in the future and definitely recommend his services to someone looking for a trainer.Feb 15, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We would cater the program and pricing to meet the need(s) of the client.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically speak with them over the phone so I can determine what the issue is and whether I am the best fit to help meet their need(s) of their dog. If initially I determine that I could help, I would then email them a consultation form to fill out so I can learn a little more about the client, dog and main goals they want to accomplish. I would collect this information and we would meet and chat in person . Then we would decide on the best method(s) and training program to accomplish the goal(s).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Certified Canine Training Specialist graduating from an intensive program at The Dog Knowledge in Charlotte NC. I have extensively trained service dogs within this program that were placed with war veterans' for obedience and special needs. "Trusty" is one of the dogs pictured in a profile picture (Golden Retriever).
