Danyelle and Jerry are the pros. My dog had behavioral issues and I was starting to lose hope but now she is so obedient and easy to work with. I am very happy with the work that Specter K-9 has accomplished.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    That all payments are to be made at drop off. For board and train prices please contact us, for they are tailored to each dog that we work with. We also do private lessons, and the pricing for the lessons are also tailored to the dog + travel fees. For boarding, the fee is $40 a day and day care services are $35 for the day. If you would like basic grooming services like a bath, cleaning ears, and cutting nails, that is an additional $10. We take dogs of all ages and sizes, but puppies will receive a higher rate due to the higher level of care they require (Like upkeeping the housebreaking). Discounts are only given to multi-dog clients and dogs that are with a rescue (this means the dog does not have an owner and is with a foster).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When we work with a new customer, the initial talk is over the phone to receive as much information about the dog as possible and then it is typically followed by a consult/evaluation in the home (if possible) to meet with the dog and see the behaviors in person if the dog requires behavioral modification.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    SPECTER K9 have years of dog training experience under their belt and have worked with a wide variety of dogs. They follow Foundation Style Training methods that were developed by Michael D'Abruzzo.
