Lauren was excellent! She covered everything from potty training to obedience and made sure we understood the why’s behind it. She had my pup sitting and listening in the first 2 minutes. We signed him up for 5 additional classes. I can’t wait to work with Lauren while I continue to grow and bond with my Chihuahua!

I brought my dog to K9 Kountry for obedience training, agility training and protection training. Butch took the time to understand my expectations and desired outcomes for the 3 types of training requested. He tailored a training program based upon the breed, age and an assessment of the communication/respect between me and my dog. I have been very impressed with the results and continued my training with Butch and his team to bring my dog to levels I did not think were possible. The discipline and obedience the dog displays are amazing...all while still being a great pet and protector. It isn't often you find somebody with the experience, PATIENCE and knowledge to understand you and your dog and how best to get the 2 of you to interact. My dog absolutely loves going to training and acts like a kid on Christmas morning when we pull into K9 Kountry

Mr. Mouton was hired to train our 4 month old puppy (and us) on basics. Our puppy had not yet demonstrated any "bad behaviors" but we definitely wanted him to start out with a firm foundation of leash walking and obedience. Maury took him in for 2 weeks and delivered a calm and obedient dog to us at the conclusion.

Nancy has been such a life saver for my husband and I! She has only been working with our puppy, Remi for a month now, and I can already see such a huge difference in her behavior, manners, and obedience. The part I love most is that she meets at your home. Meeting at our house enables us to use her methods and trainings in the area our dog is the most, at home! I have been able to watch the way she trains and directs my dog and mimic that, and it has changed so much for the better! The counter surfing has decreased drastically, her basic obedience skills are close to perfect, and we are still working towards other behavior goals such as jumping. Nancy is so sweet and caring to us and our dog. She gives out her personal number to you in case of emergency, any needs, or questions you might have. I would highly recommend her to any friends I have looking for someone to help with your dogs behaviors! Thanks Nancy!

I initially chose Zoom Room to enroll my 8 week old puppy into puppy preschool for socialization and basic obedience. This was the best decision! Heather is great and my puppy just passed his AKC S.T.A.R. puppy test! He will now be moving on to puppy obedience and we will definitely keep coming back here! There is outstanding agility equipment here and my puppy loves learning the agility course mixed in with his obedience training! A great way to keep them engaged and learning and also super fun for the owners too! I highly recommend coming to Zoom Room for your dog/puppy training needs! We will keep coming!

She explained different ways to use the treats as rewards. We talked about bought food vs homemade food. Gave directions for training to follow several commands. She followed up with emails covering things we didn't have time to discuss.

Stephanie was fantastic with Crown. He was a little nipping puppy that wanted to chew on everything AND everyone in the house before she came out for our 1st session and now he's a well behaved little boy (some of it is still a work in progress but the progress with only 3 sessions is INCREDIBLE). My husband and I decided to use Walk of Life Dog Training because of Stephanie's flexibility with our schedule - we both work long hours and don't always have congruent time off and Stephanie was willing to figure out a time that worked best for the both of us! Crown, our puppy, absolutely LOVED his time with her and it was amazing to see how expanding his mind through training was eliminating the unwanted behavior that we'd experienced prior to training with Stephanie. Additionally, she is so incredibly kind and just wants to make sure that your life with your dog is as happy as possible! We would absolutely recommend Stephanie and Walk of Life Dog Training to anyone that's interested in getting their dog trained - puppy or not, I know Stephanie can teach you some tricks and effectively address any concerns you have with your pup! Thanks a bunch!

Tena is amazing! I had two badly behaved dogs that needed training. Tena helped me set up a list of behavioral goals for my dogs. She then provided a detailed training schedule to help accomplish those goals. After just a few weeks of weekly training sessions, my dogs can now sit, lie down, stay, and “leave it” on command. They now walk on a leash without pulling – something I was unable to accomplish on my own. Tena is affordable, knowledgeable, patient, and dependable. She teaches you how to train your dog so that you can practice commands on your own. I highly recommend Tena for any dog training needs. Cyndi L.

Over the last year, I have been fortunate to have Hilton Butler from K-9 Bootcamp train my puppy so he could become a therapy dog. From the first encounter with the Butler family I knew my dog would be in good hands. They understood the purpose of his training and knew what he would have to learn in order to become a therapy dog for kids with special needs. I was greatly relieved to know that my dog would be staying in their house with their children. This meant a lot to me since my dog spent 6 weeks being trained. To know that he would not be neglected in a kennel on a large property was a huge relief. Auggie was immediately welcomed by all family members and was treated like one of their own pets. He was in loving hands from the moment he walked in the door. I felt that Hilton was able to apply various protocols to meet my dog’s needs due to his extensive background with K-9 training in the military, police, and service dog environments. Hilton demonstrates a firm hand while training, but uses positive reinforcement as well, which was needed for my dog. He ensures that you know the protocols to carry over in the home environment after training is complete. If there was any question regarding Auggie’s behaviors at home, Hilton was available by email, phone, and even conducted follow up sessions at my house. K-9 Boot Camp is a professional and loving dog training facility. They excel in providing individual treatment to meet your specific training goals. Customer service and compassion for their work shines through. Hilton, took time on a Sunday in November to drive all the way to Auggie’s therapy test for moral support. Auggie passed with flying colors and now comes to work everyday as a certified therapy dog. He is happy in his new role making sure all kids have a smile on their face while receiving therapy! We could not have done it with out Hilton.

My dog Bruno is a young rowdy pup, very smart but also very strong willed. After attempting to watch You Tube videos and train him myself, it seemed like I was getting nowhere. I was at my wits end and discouraged. I needed serious help! I brought my Bruno to Canine perceptions after reading good reviews elsewhere and needing help with his behaviors. He went through the 6 week off leash program and graduated yesterday. 1st, I'm very happy to have him home for Christmas but the change is so noticeable! I knew he would be super excited to be home and expected bad behaviors once he left. Only one day, but the change is extreme. The Staff of Canine perceptions returned my baby not only well cared for, but well mannered! The training they gave me put everything into perspective and gave me the understanding I needed to continue Bruno's training. I could not begin to explain how grateful I am to them.

Elizabeth is such a blessing; I cannot say enough great things about her. I recently adopted a puppy, as a first time dog owner, and made the BEST decision to work with her every step of the way. She helped me since before I even adopted my puppy - she helped me find the best puppy for me and prepare my house to bring her home. After our first obedience training session, the puppy had already learned (among other things) how to sit!!! She is helping me socialize the puppy with my cats who have never been around dogs, and has taught me so much about understanding my cats behavior and body language that I had no idea about. Elizabeth is always available to answer any questions I have and is always willing to help. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!!

Our Family took Toby for training with Lisa, she is really good with the pets and taught us a lot, Toby learned quick the different commands. The whole family went to the trainings and Lisa was always giving us tips and giving us advice. Would highly recommend Lisa. Everytime we went to the training Toby will get so excited and would rush to the training room so I guess he really enjoyed it and like Lisa.

All my training is positive and relationship centered. I believe in training a dog to obey because he loves you, not out of fear.

Our philosophy is simple. 1. Most problem behaviors that owners report are actually normal canine behaviors that don't fit into a human household. So a lot of owners end up trying to fight against the dog's natural instincts. 2. Training methods that only correct or ignore these natural canine instincts are unfair to the dog, frustrating to the owner, and just don't give lasting results. 3. Teaching the owner and the dog new behaviors improves the relationship, manages aggression, assists with problem solving, and produces enduring & reliable results.
