Got some great dog training tips and training, which is what I paid for, but also got additional great nutritional and health info. Will definitely use this trainer again.
My experience with K9 Kountry was been amazing. I came to Butch last year inquiring about obedience and protection training for my german shepherd. From the moment I left, after the first training session, my dog and I began to accomplish our training goals. Butch has been extremely generous with his time and is always available to help or answer any training questions. I couldn't ask for a better k9 companion after working with Butch. He has really helped me and my dog to develop extreme trust and responsibility to each other. I went from having a crazy puppy to a well mannered dog who I am now able to bring ANYWHERE with me. Before working with Butch, I wasted time and money with other local trainer and facilities. K9 Kountry is hands down the dog training in the DFW area!!!!!!!
Maury is extremely knowledgable when it comes to dog training. Not just a dog sitter! Give him a few minutes and ask about your dog's well-being. You will not be disappointed!
Lynette did a wonderful job training a dog we had rescued. She was very professional and cares about what she does! I would highly recommend Lynette and Happy Pets!!!
Debi is such a nice person let alone a great dog trainer! She is highly skilled and very knowledgeable! Thanks again!
I found Nancy online almost a year ago, and found myself having a hard time figuring out what dog training classes I needed for my dog Bowinkle. We had just adopted Bowinkle and he was about 6 months old and into everything and HORRIBLE at walking on a leash. When I called and spoke to Nancy I immediately felt I had made the right choice in calling her first. I didn't want to have to take Bowinkle to a class group setting and not get one-on-one attention and struggle with Bowinkle being to "interested" in the other dogs. The fact that Nancy does all visits at our house and offers many different types of service plans was a huge plus. I had no clue what we were getting into and how long we may or may not need her. We decided to sign up for a year; since then she has come every 2-3 weeks. What I like most about Bark Busters is we as dog owners are learning the correct way to train our dog(s) and become their Pack Leader. I can have as many dogs as I want from here on out and know that I can train/lead them on my own, and if I have a hard time I can call Nancy and she'll be here to assist. Nancy is a very professional and respectful person whom my pets, and myself have grown to love. I recommend her to everyone who is interested in dog training. I thought my Bowinkle was never going to grow out of his old habits and today I have a completely different dog. Thank you so much Nancy for your help, care and knowledge. Thanks, Krystin Scott
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!
Howard is an excellent dog trainer! His extensive knowledge and expertise in training dogs is very evident. Learning the "Alpha" way definitely helped me reevaluate how I interacted with my dogs and that there were some things I was doing that was contributing to their bad behavior. Howard is not just training your dog, he is really training owners on how to communicate effectively with their dogs. By giving us the power to train, we are able to continue to effectively maintain and extend the correct dog and Alpha communication. And even apply it to new pets! I would definitely recommend dog owners see Howard for training their pets!
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 dogs 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 Auggies 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 Auggies 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.
Wanda learns the owners strengths and the dogs needs on the 1st lesson. She will provide you with different techniques that meet both of your needs. Wanda goes the extra mile to have a different technique/lesson each class to keep the dog on the learning path. She will give you training milestones throughout the different stages of your dogs life.
I would recommend Zoom Room to anyone. Heather is a great trainer and is so encouraging, especially if you have a "hard to handle" dog. The training is a lot of fun and good exercise, as well. Lisa W.
Pamela provides personal, professional service that fits your schedule and needs. She trained our Havanese and he is a happy, better dog because of it. I can walk with him off leash and he will stay with me or on walks he never pulls his leash and follows simple commands. I highly recommend Positively Dog and Pamela Christy for your dog training needs.
Tena called me in a short amount of time, and was very friendly. My particular problem falls far outside the normal purview of any dog training, as such she had not encountered this before. She was very eager to brainstorm with me over the phone giving me several ideas on how we might rectify my situation. We spoke for about twenty minutes, and concluded with her asking me to keep her updated on the progress. She seemed genuinely caring for me and my dogs, even though she hasn’t met either of us. She was happy to help, and didn’t say she needed to come and give an in home consultation, that would have cost money, which I thought was extremely generous of her. Thank you again Tena! Adam.
Brian was very good with our dog. He's much better walking on a leash and listens to us better than when he left. The only downside to training our dog this way is that it's a remote location so we have far more distractions in our neighborhood than out on the ranch. But Brian did some socialization training and left us with good tips and instructions for continuing to help our dog learn that he needs to be calm when approaches other dogs. Our dog was sad to see Brian leave.
Bella came back much better than expected. She is a big dog, so having her trained well was very important for us so that we can keep her inside with the family. You will not be disappointed!
Absolutely a delight to work with. This is my first time to have a dog and Arlene is helping me alleviate my fears. Knowledge is power. And all the informative tools, techniques and skills she is sharing with me helps me embrace and celebrate the joys of having Noelle( my sweet labradoodle)!!!
Mallory has taken care of my dog for over a year now whenever needed. She also spent some time training my dog. Mallory is very dependable and reliable, and great with my dog.
Vicki, the owner of Mobile Master dog training has been an amazing experience. She has taught me so much, not only about my dog but about myself and how it affects my animals. I love how she uses positive reinforcement and figuring out the underlying issue of the dog instead of going straight to a collar and making it scared into doing what you want. Animal whisperer sounds cliche but you really feel like the elephant in the room when her and your dog are talking telepathically (feels that way 😆) I highly recommend her to teach your fur child! Expect to learn a few things yourself 😉
We are blown away with the progress of our rescued Border Collie puppy. The trainers at TDS Canine Solutions took our fear agressive 6-month old to a well behaved puppy in just 5 weeks. We could not be more impressed with their style and results. Loving traing that not only taught our puppy how to behave, but professional expertise that taught us how to raise this sweet boy. We are forever grateful. By the way, we've had more than 10 dogs in the past, but simply couldn't figure out how to deal with with fear agression. This team knows their stuff!
I had a crazy dog! Food aggression/ horrible on leash/ always jumped on people and greeted them with a pee puddle. I contacted Chris - and through our free consultation he assured me this is not something I have to just live with and that he could help us learn how to communicate with the dog so the dog knew who was I. Charge and we could get control. Sure enough he did. It took a few visits - more cause of us being slow learning not the dog or Chris. Chris worked magic and now we have a wonderful obedient fur baby. Thanks Chris !

I'm a local college student who loves dogs. I grew up with lots of pets in the family, so I am very familiar with animals of all shapes and sizes. I would love to care for your pet in whatever way you may need, whether it be an afternoon walk, exercise in the park, or to feed and walk your pet while out of town. I will do my best to cater to your needs and hours of availability.
