Christie does absolutely amazing work, which is why we drove 2 hours to have her board & train our 2 yr old German Shepherd. We were running out of hope just when we came across K9 Mastery during an online hunt. She stuck out from the other standard 2-week board & train programs all over and decided to give her a shot. While it was hard having him gone for an entire month... boy, was it worth it! We used to get pulled all over when we had him on a leash and coming across other dogs and/or people was a nightmare. His aggression towards other dogs and people that he didn't know was our biggest issue and we were SO SHOCKED to see his progress when we picked him up after a month with her. She has done the impossible (or so we thought) and it was worth every penny. His sits, downs, and stays are even better than before and now he can even heel. And oh how thankful we are to not have tired and red hands after having him on the leash. I have already recommended K9 Mastery to several people who have asked us how our dog is so well trained and behaved.Dec 14, 2017Verified
Only 2 classes in, but amazing progress with both dogs. Christie is a high energy, no fluff, no excuses, let’s get it done trainer. Excited to see continued progress!Dec 5, 2017Verified
My 16 mos. old dog learns so fast after her first dog training recently. It is amazing to watch how she improves so much in a short time. Christie did an outstanding job with her.Dec 13, 2016Verified
I know I read 1000 reviews before I decided to send my dog Webster so I'll share my experience. My husband and I decided to send Webster to participate in Christie's board and train program after a fight at the dog park led to serious behavioral and aggression issues. (To be fair, he had plenty of behavioral problems before that, the aggression is just what finally sent us over the edge and made us realize how much help we really needed). We've had him for a little over a week now, and the progress we've seen in him is amazing! He can sit and stay and walk like a nice, well-trained dog. I will tell you this training is NOT for someone that wants to be lazy. The training is simple enough to follow (corrections if he does something wrong, praise when he does what I'm asking him to), but you have to be willing to set aside time to do training and have to really pay attention every time he's out of the house. Even though it was costly I can't tell you enough how "worth it" it has been to spend the money on this training. We're looking forward to more training in the future and continuing to improve on this great foundation Christie gave us to work with. I'm a more confident dog owner knowing how to correct undesirable behaviors and couldn't be more satisfied with the progress we've seen in our best friend.Dec 4, 2017Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?Simply because of my love for dogs and my desire to help others. I have been there myself. I understand needing help and feeling hopeless. No dog is beyond hope.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The majority of my students come to me for obedience training and behavior modification services for aggression issues that other trainers have told them were beyond hope.
