"Problem is not solved. Dog is very destructive when owner leaves the premises. Much of his furniture is destroyed. Company did respond when owner called but did not follow up to check" if things were going well. The company told me separation anxiety is a difficult disorder to treat but offered a money back guarantee if the could not fix problem. To date, have not received reimbursement nor are they still working to correct the problem.

"I did not realize that getting two dogs from the same litter (especially male) was discouraged. The biggest challenge for me is trying to work with one of my boys without the other" being disruptive. Miniature schnauzers, while completely adorable, can be a stubborn breed. Overall, I am very fortunate with mine as they have bonded well with me. However, together they can feed off each other and escalate quickly with aggressive behavior. They knew some basic commands but they needed more work to be the really good dogs I know they are. In addition, I needed the training too!
seems to have an innate understanding of dogs. He reassured me that I don't have aggressive dogs just dogs (mostly just one) with aggressive behavior. Realizing one needed some special focus, he took one of them home for a few days to socialize him with his dogs and to work with him on some of his fear-based bad behavior.
was the fifth trainer my boys have worked with and while the others were just fine,
had the right combination of forcefulness and gentleness that really connected with my boys. One of my boys takes correction very personal, so
was careful not to push him beyond what was productive. He trained specific to what each of my boys needed. I'm very pleased with the progress they made. I know that it's up to me to continue to work with them so I can have the consistent behavior expected from a well-behaved dog. I now have the tools and the confidence to effectively manage my boys. I really appreciate all
did for me and my boys. I feel like we've made a friend!

is simply awesome. She is an excellent trainer and is the true dog whisperer. Her kenneling services are like no other. Our dog used to have accidents and "problems"" when boarded at a very well-known competitor. He has loved going to K-9 connection for several years for "boarding" and comes home so happy and worn out.
and K-9 connection couldn't look after your best friend any better.

Guy came out to assist us with some obedience training for our little Chorkie, Peanut. I was worried because Peanut was making it difficult for me to work during the day (I work from home). I was also worried about a trainer because Peanut is barely 5 pounds and I was not sure they type of "hardware" that would be used. Guy took the time to work with Peanut, see his behavior then implement training and commands. He showed us the hands on approach needed, how to encourage the dog and how to stay calm to ensure we retain control over the situation. Today, Peanut is eating regularly, LOVES taking walks, is not constantly needing my attention and no longer food/

guards. We added a second pup to our family who Peanut is a great big brother for..but we may be calling Guy again for the new one, Pecan, as he sure does enjoy chewing!
Thank you so much Guy for your persistence and guidance!

We had a wonderful time. My dog really looked forward to attending classes. I was over joyed as well to finally have a class I could take my reactive dog to without fear or stress. The staff not only were well informed on the latest training techniques but they were understanding of the problems and emotions caused when one has a reactive dog.

Guy was prompt and extremely friendly. He immediately got to work with our puppy, without us even realizing what he was doing. The tips he provided have really helped us to understand how our actions can affect the puppy, and also teach the puppy how he should react in our house.
Guy followed-up 2 weeks following our appointment (as promised) and we're already making plans to have Guy come over again at the 4 month

Outstanding. She diagnoses situations and problems and quickly comes up with a plan for training. One of my dogs issues was with other dogs and

This is my fourth dog over a 30 year period. I have taken each dog to some form of training-ranging from 'dominance' based individual training, to large, almost unwieldy sized group training as though I wanted to show my dog in a ring, when I really just wanted my dog to be well mannered-to smaller group training, which was a hybrid of both styles. I did a lot of research to determine where I wanted to take my Golden Retriever puppy, and discovered

via the internet.

I am very pleased with the experience. Their training is based on positive reinforcement, rather than dominance theory. The classes are small, and during each session there are teaching sessions for the owners, practicing sessions for the owners and their puppies, and play sessions for the puppies. Puppies are assessed and placed into play groups based on their individual temperaments-so timid puppies aren't necessarily placed with really active puppies until their confidence level is up.

, and the rest of the staff are very patient. They provide live-or video examples of how to work on the targeted behaviors. They provide handouts/homework for practicing/working with our dogs during the week, and they are always willing to answer questions during, and after, class. My dog is smart, but has a mind of his own too. I believe that I am achieving excellent results through their positive reinforcement training methods. I think that if I had taken the 'dominance' based route with him, he would be more rebellious, and although he would have learned sit, down etc., it would have been at the expense of him fearing, rather than wanting to please, me-so it's a

I highly recommend them for your training needs, whether it's for puppies, manners, agility-they are all well educated about animal behavior, and 'Posi-dog', is really a positive experience for dogs and their owners.
