Lauren was outstanding. She was so helpful and knowledgeable about dog behavior. I loved that she was quick and to the point - easy to follow and understand. She stayed on track and answered all of our questions. She provided easy, helpful advice that we can start doing in our home right away. And it worked!! Her prices are so reasonable for such a great service. She even spend extra time with us. We will definitely use Lauren again. Thank you for bringing peace to our home! :)

The K9 Kountry folks are flat out wonderful! What a difference they made in my dog's behavior. The best part was how she loved Butch. It is obvious that he loves his dogs and they love him right back. We will continue to use K9 Kountry for kenneling as well as training. I highly recommend K9 Kountry for their behavioral training, kenneling, and, most of all, for the love relationship they developed with my dog. She is happy to go there, and so am I!

After the first session, there was a huge improvement in my dogs behavior, and the instructions were easy to follow and continue after the instructor left the house.

Debi is by far the most trustworthyhy care giver I know. I've had the honor of knowing Debi for years and I can't say enough amazing things about her. You don't come across people like this very often, so when I say it's an honor, I truly mean that will all of my heart. I've known Debi as an animal control officer as well, and I'll just say you don't come across ACO's like her at all!!!! I worked in the veterinary field for 8 years, so trust me when I say that. She will treat your pet as if they were her own and nothing less! I love Debi and respect her to the fullest!

Nicole is an outstanding dog trainer! When we adopted two shelter dogs of different ages two months ago, we didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into! We decided to bring Nicole in to help refine our dog's behaviors and help them settle into their new home quickly. Nicole's approach is both gentle and consistent. She also provided great tips along the way for things we can do going forward as our dogs' training becomes more advanced. Communication was always clear and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. All of us, dogs included, miss seeing her every weekend. She was truly a joy to work with! We highly recommend Nicole to all of our family and friends, and the minute we decide our dogs are ready for more advanced training, Nicole is who we will call! Thank You NICOLE!!! :-)

Working with Howard was a great experience. Anyone looking for a caring, compassionate but firm animal lover will find it in him. He has taught us how to be alphas in our home and earn the respect of our 3 furry pets. They are all challenging in their own way but working with Howard has taught us how to read each one and to communicate effectively with them.

Wanda was wonderful with my 2 year old previously neglected foster dog and was able to teach me some very simple techniques to start training him. After one session there was already a marked difference in his behavior. I am no longer as stressed on the what or how to train him. She is prepared with treats and how to start. And she emailed me further instructions on how to work with him until our next session. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Before her help, he was too antsy to pay attention, and I had no way to reach him. Now he makes eye contact and enjoys our training sessions.

Pamela did amazing with our dog. She was very good at explaining our dogs behavior and how to correct it. We were able to conquer basic commands and break his jumping habit. She was a pleasure to work with and very flexible with our schedule.

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.

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.

Beth was called to our house to help us with our rescue pit bull. She is a people person but most importantly she is knowledgeable trainer. Her philosophy on training meshed well with my family. She does not implemented dominance strategies which is unlike some other trainors here in the area. We want a family pet not an animal that fears us. I feel confident that with her helpful tips and training we will have the dog of our dreams. Our dog was abused prior to us having him. Already I see a significant improvement. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that has doggy behavior issues.
