    Amazing! Thankful for Darryl Payne and Pennie Payne and the entire Pawfection team for their knowledge and willingness to work with the dogs of Central Florida. I can not say enough about their group classes on Saturdays as well as the one on one in home training with Darryl. We have a large dog that is pleasant to be around for our home guests and can be taken places to enjoy life after being rescued. Thank you so much. You are making a wonderful impact to our community in serving this way!

    I contacted Pawfection dog training in June 2018 regarding my Lhasa Apso companion. He had been attacked by a pack of dogs two years prior, since the attack he had become very dog reactive. With the arrival of a new puppy to our household his demeanor had gotten much worse. Our companion was now aggressive and biting us. The final straw was when he bit my oldest son in the face for no apparent reason. Darryl came out to the house and spent over two hours teaching me how to rectify this unwanted behavior. Darryl worked with my Lhasa as well as with the new puppy, he once again restored peace and harmony to our home. Frankly he saved my Lhasa���s life and returned joy that had been lost back to his world. There is no magical cure, we did the work that Darryl instructed us to do but Pawfection provided the clear instruction and tools needed to move forward. I happily report that my companion no longer takes anti-anxiety medications, CBD oils and can go out into the public, behave appropriately and enjoy outings with us. Our puppy was enrolled in the puppy classes and is currently participating in her third session of agility and manners training. We are proud to be a part of the Pawfection family. Darryl, his wife Penny, and the other trainers are wonderful, talented and very accommodating. I am very pleased with the progress of both of our dogs. I have not only seen great progress in my dogs but in other dogs that attend the agility and manners trainings. Darryl is not your basic dog trainer, he truly is a behavioralist, his experience and knowledge provides insight and he does hold true to his slogan. He does train both ends of the leash. Pawfection has several training programs at different levels and I personally look forward to continuing our training with Pawfection.

    DO NOT USE!!!!! I paid for the use of a service dog, and did not use the service. Multiple promises of a refund were never followed through. She claimed financial dire straights, and I have yet to receive my refund. I am currently filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, The Department of Consumer Affairs, and seeking legal action. Do not throw your money away with this company!!!

    Dog's Best Friend of Central Florida
    Paul just left our home and we can���t recommend his dog training (and human training) services enough. Paul spent very focused time educating us, working with our dog, and then helping us as we put what we learned into action ourselves. He has such a deep understanding of how the mind of a dog works and it was obvious from how quickly our dog picked up what Paul was teaching. We feel so much better about our dog as a part of our family after just a two hour session. Thank you, Paul!!

    Fantastically! Darryl was awesome. His presentation made complete sense and wasn't difficult to follow whatsoever. Watching his techniques work right in front of my eyes and within 2mins was just an unbelievable relief.

    We adopted an 8 week black lab/irish setter with the hopes that we would be able to train her when she got old enough to be a service dog for my son with high-functioning autism.  At about 11 months, a trainer from a different company came and met with my son and his dog.  My whole family did not have a good impression of this trainer, and so my search continued.  I found K9 Advisors online.  I requested they contact me so I could find out more about their program.  Edel contacted me and we had a great conversation.  He felt that his trainer, Ali, would be a great match and set up a time for her to come over and evaluate.  BEST DECISION EVER!  Ali has become almost a member of our family.  Under her guidance, my son's dog has made tremendous strides and is getting ready to go to school with my son either this month or next.  Ali definitely loves dogs and treats them with respect.  They follow her commands (and ours) to please her, not because they fear her.  I don't think we would be this close to his dog becoming a full blown service dog if we didn't have Ali to guide us and train our dog.
    I HIGHLY recommend K9 Advisors!!

    Darryl was great! Even though it was a rainy day he spend a lot of time learning about our dog and our challenges. He then helped us formulate a comprehensive plan to provide our dog the things she needed (boundaries, exercise, mental challenges, etc). What's so great about his approach you feel empowered with the knowledge of why your dog is behaving the way she is....and how live in harmony. It's been two weeks since his visit and our house and pet has been transformed into one filled with joy. We still have daily challenges but we know exactly how to handle them! Thank you Darryl! Highly recommended!

    It went "FABULOUS" !!!!!!
    I have to say that my daughter and I were skeptical before our appointment with Darryl. His wife Penny had 
    reassured me that they could help us with our training issues with Wallace. Wallace is a very fun loving happy dog
    who loves to bark from sunrise to sundown. He also like to eat everything he can get a hold of off the sidewalk when
    going on walks. Not to mention a few other issues!
    Darryl had us keep Wallace separate upon his arrival and he spent the first part of our appointment showing us a power point
    and discussing our issues with Wallace's behavior. Darryl took time to listened to exactly what the problems were. Darryl is extremely knowledgeable about animal habits, training, nutrition and overall "the WHYs" of why Wallace was behaving in the manor he was. 
    After our discussion we then introduced Darryl to Wallace. Of course it didn't take long for Wallace to show Darryl exactly why we had called him out.  He was gentle with Wallace and before we knew it the session was ending and Darryl had taught my daughter and I as well as Wallace what to do and what not to do.
    Once Darryl left I though perhaps Wallace would go back to his old tricks, however, Wallace has turned into the perfect dog. He doesn't bark uncontrollably anymore and he doesn't eat off the sidewalk anymore!!!!
    We highly recommend Pawfection!!! They didn't try to sell us more than what we had the appointment for. They are very professional and you can see they have a real love for animals and it shows in their performance.  
    If you need a trainer, then you don't need to look any farther because these people have a passion for what they do and they do it well!!!!

    I am very pleased with the service I got from Pawfection!!  I have a lot of experience with dogs but the newest addition to my family was a tough case for me to crack.  I had read all the books and tried all the conventional methods but this dog just did not get it.  I did a ton of research on line and decided to go with pawfection due to the the back ground of Darryl Payne.  Anyone can be a "dog-trainer" now but I needed someone with experience and a proven history to help me with my dog.  Darryl came to my house and spent the time listening to my issues with the dog and then he tailor his training method to my situation.  Not all dogs are trained the same way and Darryl was able to help me find a way to stop my new dog from bolting out of the house, chewing, and trying to chase my cats.  With his advice I will be able to continue to work with my dog and make him the part of the family we always wanted!!!!  One in home session is all I needed.  If you are looking for a dog trainer and want the most experienced, least time consuming, and most affordable you need to contact Pawfection.

    They have a socialization program. When I took her there they ask if they could do a check-up and they found an ear infection. They took care of the infection right there and I was very impress with the Vet there.
