Needed advice on training my new puppy and Rugged K9 was there to help! Always recommend to friends for their dog training needs.Jan 9, 2020Review from GoogleRugged K9 Training's reply
Thank you so much! We were happy to help give your puppy a good start with obedience!
I used Rugged K9 Training to train my 6 month old rescue dog in July of this year. 4 months later, I'm still getting compliments about how well behaved Finley is! Thank you Marina!Nov 7, 2019Review from GoogleRugged K9 Training's reply
So glad to here you're still doing well! Thank you so much
Wow! Seriously life changing!! They really know what they are doing. My dog Pepper used to get way too excited and she would pull on the leash while I was walking her. Now she is an angle! She now listens to commands, doesnt pull, and is able to be in public without getting distracted. Seriously cant thank them enough. I would 1000% recommend them. They are also very reasonable with their price!! Very quick at responding when I had questions. Thanks Rugged K9 Training!!!Jan 9, 2020Review from GoogleRugged K9 Training's reply
Thank you Drew! We’re so happy to help you and Pepper and it was a pleasure to work with you!
We dropped off a leash-pulling, kid-toppling, doorbell-jumping 7-month old pup, Dixie, for a board and train with Marina. Three weeks later she returned a happy and obedient dog that now accompanies our family everywhere without fear of running off or dragging our children down the street on her leash. We are so grateful to Marina for giving us a dog our family can enjoy for years to come. Absolutely worth it.Jan 10, 2020Review from GoogleRugged K9 Training's reply
Thank you so much! We’re so happy for you guys that you can enjoy life with Dixie. It was a pleasure to have her!
Rugged K9 Training did an exceptional job with my dog. They not only trained and cared for her, but were also full of advice/tips with how to properly train your dog and why. Would highly recommend them to any dog owner.Dec 1, 2019Review from GoogleRugged K9 Training's reply
Thank you so much Isaac!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our board and train pricing reflects that we train basically 24/7. We are at the training facility nearly 24/7 and have cameras set up when we aren't. Our training programs include a structured walk each day, individual training time, social with other dogs, relaxation and down time, and an outing (the beach, a walk in Downtown Bluffton, the park, etc.) The prices also include an e-collar, which is $200 value!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?New customers should understand that we are not magicians - I wish we were! In order for your dog to truly change, YOU will have to change! There will be lifestyle changes needed to be made in order to transform the relationship between you and your dog and change your dogs mindset. Put in the work for a few months and you will have a balanced, well-behaved dog for years!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I trained 3 dogs of my own (including a German Shepherd) using books and courses from Leerburg.com. I started dog walking and pet sitting and got a lot of experience training all different types of dogs for free. It has grown from there!
