Basic dog training (jumping on me, eye contact) as well as specific training for being around children. Rona gave me 3 exercises to do with excellent explanations as well as advice on the crate, food, treats, dog behavior in general, you name it! Tons of information. I can't wait for our next session:) You will get your money's worth plus some!
We highly recommend K-9 Kenny for dog training. We originally wanted to prepare our Pit Bull for our upcoming newborn. Specifically, we thought we needed to introduce Zeus to baby sounds and smells in order to prepare him for the huge addition. K-9 Kenny suggested we work on obedience training instead as a way to maintain control of our pup. The six sessions were money well spent! We now have a 6 week old baby, and Zeus is the most amazing dog and big brother ever. Before the training, I was unable to walk Zeus because I had no control over him. Today, I am able to walk Zeus and the newborn without any reservations or issues. Zeus is so obedient. K-9 Kenny was attentive in listening to our concerns and list of bad behaviors Zeus had, and he successfully developed a strategic plan each week to attack the issues. Kenny followed up each week with an elaborate email describing what we worked on. Not only is K-9 Kenny amazing at training, his friendliness and personality makes the training experience enjoyable. We are forever blessed to have met K-9 Kenny, and Zeus misses him already!
Kevin did a beautiful job training and caring for our two dogs. I was impressed with his knowledge and understanding of each individual dog's training needs and his balanced approach in training. The facilities were impeccably well kept and comfortable for the dogs. And, they also received alot of outdoor group play time. If you want a trainer who is not only gifted at his trade but is truly passionate about what he does and genuinely cares for the dogs he trains/boards and aims to build relationships with his clients with ongoing support, Kevin is your guy. Will definitely use him again for any training or boarding needs!
Really liked working with them. We were super worried about how our Great Dame would react to a trainer, because he has such bad public manners and is super crazy toward people and animals, but they were willing to work with us and meet us a few times before training so our dog would feel comfortable when they did take him for two weeks. We had a great response with their training and are continuing to work with them after the two weeks.
Kris is awesome! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I got my dog, Apollo, almost a year ago at the age of a year and a half. He was the easiest dog at the beginning, did everything I asked. A few months ago, Apollo, started to challenge me on everything, going on walks became impossible because he was so hyper. Then he became aggressive or at least I thought he was. When we'd walk, he'd try to attack any walker, biker, or runner that came near me. He started to growl and act like he was going to attack anyone that would come into my house. It got to the point, I was about to take him back to the pet shelter I got him at. I was terrified he'd bite someone and then he'd be put down. I was pretty against professional dog training, as I've heard horror stories from friends of spending a large sum of money with no results. After a very close encounter of Apollo almost biting a girl renting a room in my house for the weekend, I gave in and thats when I met Kris. Kris came to my house for a free two hour evaluation with Apollo, in which he got to know Apollo, I told him about the struggles, and then we went on a walk. Kris showed me several training techniques even during the elevation. He cares far more about helping your dog and you build a stronger relationship, in which both parties are happier, than just getting his money for the training. Kris is very passionate about what he does, which helps create a fun, exciting, training environment. I have never felt stupid for not knowing how to handle my own dog, or for asking questions, even if I had to ask the same one several times. Kris doesn't just take your dog and train him, he involves you, the owner, a great deal. This helps me a lot, because I didn’t know anything about how to train a dog before this. Kris will give me pointers, or explain why Apollo is acting a certain way when I do something. I feel very lucky that I have a dog trainer who is not only patient with Apollo, but so amazing at training me on how to train my dog. Kris is truly amazing at what he does, and seeing his connection with animals is extraordinary. I’m telling you, if you want to see immediate improvements hire Kris. I highly recommend not waiting to contact him, with his results his services will be in high demand soon. Thank you Kris, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that Apollo is such an obedient, loving dog now, our relationship/connection is so strong, it’s incredible.
Tiffany was wonderful with our old man (dog) Carl! He had some medical issues and needed attention throughout the day while we were at work. Tiffany went above and beyond to make sure his needs were met! Thank you Tiffany!
I'm very please with Sit Means Sit Dog Training in Belton, TX. The communication was excellent and I noticed results within one week of training with my dog Leo. The training is easy to learn and the group classes help my dog learn at a faster pace with the distraction of other dogs. I found that in targeting my dog's intelligence we have a stronger connection and we can both help each other. Robin has been amazing also, as have the other trainers! Thank you Sit Means Sit!
Brought both our 'boys' (Bouvier des Flanders - head strong!) to Canine Academy for puppy training nearly 10 years ago and have continued to use them for boarding since then. Can't say enough good things about Lisa and her crew. The boys are so well-behaved (and know some pretty great tricks) and perk up when we say "Are we going to see Lisa?" Highly Recommend for training and/or boarding!
I've worked with Becca for almost a year. I started as a volunteer under her supervision, and I began fostering a service dog in training (4 month old lab puppy) shortly thereafter. I've attended several of her classes and participated in service dog specific training with my foster dog puppy. Her methods are totally volitional, which was a new concept for me for training a dog, and I was amazed to see the results. There was nothing but positive reinforcement and an overabundant desire to educate her students so that they would get visible results. Becca always clearly communicated the lesson, outlined the steps, the goal of the exercise, and assisted her students personally when they struggled with either their dog or the concept. She is extremely patient, an effective speaker, provides awesome illustrative examples of the topic, and writes notes for those to practice at home. She is clearly passionate about her work and dedicated to dog owners and their dogs. I highly recommend Becca for assessments, training of all kinds, and boarding services. She is truly a dog lover and understands our four-legged friends more than I could hope to.
We got immediate and positive results with sarah of Training Tails. We plan a follow up and highly recommend her methods and training
Upon the first meeting with Hilary, I felt that she had a really great attitude and willingness to do whatever it took to make my dog feel comfortable. Super Big Plus...She was able to start right away, which took a lot of stress off of my mind. She's also very easy to work with for any adjustments to the daily/weekly walking schedule. I have a lot of gratitude for her choice to work with animals and it gives me peace of mind, that she knows her stuff.
Audra is very knowledgeable and really cares about the animals she works with. She is always willing to answer any questions I have and has made me geek even more confident as a dog owner!
Working with The Wise Hound has been an absolute pleasure! Her knowledge of dogs and her passion for teaching really made training my dog so much fun! I never would have imaged the transformation my dog went through as a result of her fantastic guidance. If you are thinking about getting your dog trained, you can't go wrong with The Wise Hound! Thank you so much for everything you did for me and my pup!

Honestly, my dog walking business is just getting started! I have a bachelor's degree in English and taught high school English for 10th and 11th graders. I'm now a stay-at-home mom with three children, and I am just looking for a part-time job that I will enjoy, so that I can still pick up my kids from school, get outdoors, enjoy the sunshine and make your dog happy with a walk!

We have over twenty years of experience working with dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds. Our specialty is rehabilitating "hopeless cases," especially aggressive and reactive dogs. Through our work with area shelters and rescue groups, we have reformed many dogs who would have been euthanized, and made them suitable for adoption. We offer classes on various topics that are limited to only 4 dogs, so that everyone gets ample one-on-one attention and practice. Some of our customers prefer the convenience and flexible schedule of our private, customized sessions held at our facility in East Austin or at their location. Finally, we have our board and train program of intense behavioral modification for truly tough cases or just a basic brush-up on manners and obedience, while the owners are on vacation or traveling.
