Neeve did an excellent job with my dog. We began to see a change in his demeanor almost immediately. She was extremely positive and worked with me to come up with a realistic plan for my dog. We discussed followup visits and training. She worked around my schedule. I highly recommend Neeve and her dog training skills.

Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.

Adrienne is a dedicated trainer who puts the dogs needs first. An excellent problem solver, using fair and consistent methods. I have personally had great results leaving a sport dog in her care for a board and train. My dog received the structured work she needed. I would not hesitate using this trainer in the future. I highly recommend using Adrienne for any training your dog needs.

Ken was my first experience with professional dog training. I'm Amazed! Simple applicable success from the very first session. Positive reinforcement and strategies for overcoming frustration (more for the humans than the puppies) transformed the behavior of our Wilson - a rescue with a little bit of shyness inside a large body. Ken's guidance and constant reassurance gave me confidence and helped Wilson transfer energy into play resulting in a puppy who is undercontrol and safe in any environment.

Verified review

Christine was very professional, focused and truly understood how to explain dog training and techniques as well as what makes the pup tick and how to correct behaviors. She pays close attention to our dogs and offered constructive steps to assist all along the process. Was very happy and would love to use Christine again - my pups truly enjoyed the training process and would crash that evening after our sessions. Wish her all the luck in the world - you and your pup will be a better team after working with Christine.

Sara is phenomenal. My dog is happier, I am happier. She is always available when I need her. As a surgeon, my schedule is often very unpredictable, and having a trustworthy and fantastic person like Sara taking care of my dog makes me breathe a lot easier

Joyce works great with my female Rottweiler. When I hired her my pup had previous training of basic commands, and was well behaved. Joyce enabled me to have more control of my dog, and she is now able to go out with me without a leash. With her style of dog training it gave me a deeper bond with my dog. In addition, it has given me peace of mind that my dog will listen to the commands that I am giving her. I would recommend Joyce to any dog owner regardless of what needs they may have. I have recommended Joyce to my girlfriend and they have just started training her Shiba Inu! It has been such a great time working with her. Every training session she sends out a recap of the training so you don't miss a beat.

We have not completed our puppy training yet but so far all is going well. Josh connected with my puppy right away as if she knew him already and responded to his reward-based training technique right away. He also gave us a lot of information on how to care for our puppy.

We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.

I worked with Chris when he was just starting. I have a female Rottweiler mix who was very dog aggressive and I was trying to rescue another dog. I had my dog for 7 years before I was able to have her around another dog. I thought it was impossible. I was very nervous after breaking up multiple dog fights with her and getting bitten once. Chris gave me the tools to be in control of my dog. He made me confident and made it fun. Training with my dog was something I looked forward to and was proud of. I saw progress every week. We now have not only adopted another dog, we have adopted 3 more! My dog that I started with assists me in training the new guys. She is confident and content and has a completely new attitude. Chris completely changed how I interacted with my dog. Thank you so much!

Mia helped me train my large mixed breed puppy. He went from an out of control dog to a calmer dog under her training. She taught me how to walk him without as much pulling and how to do basic commands. She also helped me with crate training. Her help was excellent. She is positive and generous with her time.

I initially spent over $400 at Petsmart for obedience training. After four lessons I was informed that they couldn't help me with my lab/pit's aggressive behavior; I felt lost & desperate. I had to go out of town for a few days & found K9 partners on here, called them & found out that they specialize in large dogs & have training, & boarding!!! I boarded my baby for my trip, & paid for the training. It cost more than the retail stores, but in this case I can attest you get what you pay for! I take Jax with me everywhere; the dog park, flea markets. It doesn't matter who comes to my house! We've learned how to manage his behavior. I'm forever indebted to this place for saving my Jax.
