I brought my two 8 month old German Pointers to Voraussehen Kennels for their 30 day training program. The owners were very nice and accommodating for me during visits and the drop off/pick up. The dogs had improved in the 30 days with Voraussehen and I think their program gave the dogs a good base to continue their obedience training as they grow up!

Amy and her partner John are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable about animals and come prepared to make a plan that works for your specific needs. We have had two training sessions and we already see a difference with our dog's obedience. We are grateful that we found them!

We took our fur baby, JJ, to Barks for the 3 week board & train program for basic/general obedience and we have been AMAZED at the difference the in house training has made. When JJ came home he was so very obedient that we were all shocked. What a little pleasure it is to have a puppy that looks to you as his leader instead of the other way around. Now to get the other 3 pups in for this training! LOL If you have been looking for proper training for your fur baby, look no further......you are on the right site!

Lee is a fantastic trainer. In three sessions, we've already learned so much. She's excellent with our puppy, and he absolutely loves her. She quickly determined his level of obedience and what really motivates him. My pup clearly gives her an A+. From a dog parent perspective, Lee is always punctual and great about explaining each step of the training. I don't leave reviews often, but Lee is well-deserving of high praise.

Absolutely Brilliant! Amy took an otherwise unmanageable dog-walking situation with my three Boxers, and turned it into a pleasant experience. She has given us the tools and instructions for turning fear-aggression behaviors into calm obedience, and joyful family time. We also worked on indoor behaviors, and in short order, thanks to Amy, we have sanity in our house when the doorbell rings, or when friends come to visit, or when people and other dogs pass in front of the house. Amy not only knows how to manage the dogs, their behavior, and their issues, she teaches the human parents how to read and interact with our beloved pets. We are now very hopeful that Isaac can be reintegrated into normal canine life. We are working on new skills and will have Amy back to do another assessment. Amy is vested in the pets' as well as the parents' progress. She gives "homework"asks for updates and news. She is bright, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and she LOVES dogs. Her greatest joy is seeing everybody calm and happy. All thumbs up for Amy!! I definitely recommend her!!!

I can not say enough good things about Modern K9s. They are very trust worthy trainers with your pets. They kept us informed & sent us pictures though the 4 week obedience training and answered every question we had along the way. Our German Shepherd came back a calm and new dog! I would definitely recommend & use them in the future.

Everything about them is amazing! Courtney has done such a great job helping us communicate with our deaf pit bull Sophie ❤️ She has progressed from digging to jumping on people, to learning to watch our eye contact, watch our hand signs, and completely stopped the digging! This experience has been the most amazing gift to our family! Our 3 year old son has even picked up on the sign language in order to communicate with Sophie! Seriously the best training I have ever seen! Thank you Come and Train It K9! Y’all are a blessing!

First session was this week, we discussed what my problems were with my boxer to determine what needed to be done. she and her husband worked as a team with my dog and i could see results just after the first visit. i feel confident she will be able to help me to get my puppy on the right track of obedience.

Barbara is great!! I would highly recommend her. She has taught me so much on how to have my dog listen to me and follow what I say. I have known Barbara for a 1 1/2 yrs. I first met her when she was an instructor at a pet store. Riley is my first dog and I thought he was only supposed to be a dog. I soon learned that I had no control over him. Walks were difficult with him pulling and trying to run after other dogs and people. Barbara showed me in easy steps how to get Riley to do what I asked like no jumping up on people or not pulling during walks, etc. After training classes ended I began to attend her agility for fun classes. It seems like every class I am learning something new about my dog and what he can do. I now have a dog that will listen to me (well most of the time ) and I am so proud of him. We are still a work in progress but I couldn't have done it without Barbara gentle teaching and encouragement.

Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.

Have required services from The Bark Resort many times. Grooming, Boarding, and Training purposes. The first time we contacted them we were in desperate need of help for our very large Labrador. He was very aggressive towards other dogs and had issues with meeting new people. Thanks to Tammy and The Bark Resort we can now introduce him to other dogs with few worries that he will hurt them. This was 3 years ago and since then we have brought other dogs of ours for training as well as boarding and grooming many times.

Good Boy Obedience is phenomenal! Not only did Sarah train my pomeranian and border collie to perfection, but she also taught me how to keep their training up. Her teaching technique makes it easy for newbies (like myself) to understand how best to get dogs doing everything we ask. In our private lessons we learned a ton of commands, but my favorite part was training them with the remote collar so that they can be off leash. I love not having to worry about them going crazy when someone new comes over anymore, or trying to get food off the table. Sarah does such an amazing job and I’m so glad we decided to train with her. Will book more lessons soon to teach them even more!

Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !

Britney has been my go-to trainer for the past year with all of our rescue dogs. She is very patient working with each other their personalities and we love the fact she uses positive reinforcement, not shock collars or anything of the sort other trainers quoted us using. She also has been helping guide us through the process of finding the right Service Dog prospect and owner-training legally. We definitely recommend her for all our dog training needs, whether in person or through Skype/Facetime when she's not in our area!

Chelsea & Ty are professional dog trainers and lovers of all breeds. I wanted training provided in my own home in the circumstances and day-to-day situations encountered by my dog. Pugs can be stubborn to say the least and Modern K9s proved their integrity, quality, and ingenuity. They were eager to respond to questions or concerns at any time. I also sent my pug for a "refresher" when I had an extended trip. I think he came back home and thought home was a little boring. My dog was always eager to work with the trainers and they taught the two of us very well. I don't hesitate to recommend their service.
