Animal Training reviews in Nikiski

    Alaska K-9 Aquatics
    Fabulous, as always! We love going to Alaska K-9 Aquatics. The owners/trainers are available and get in with the dogs as needed. Our dogs are labs and pretty much just cruise on their own but someone is still there to help. They provide ample flotation vests etc, and toys to ensure dogs have a successful swim. We pretty much go in, let the dogs swim for 45 minutes then, use the bathing area. It helps to burn off some energy in the winter and knocks down the shedding quite a bit. The only down side is that my dogs want to go back to the pool while we're bathing.

    Alyeska Canine Trainers
    We spent $85 for six week session and it was good for over year. I love the people there and they provide the agility training. Sometimes the class sizes are a little large. They are extremely friendly.

    Midnight Sun Service Dogs
    While the services are described as "free", the owner/trainer does not secure funding and burdens clients constantly with needing to either raise funds or donate.  We did not have time to raise funds so we donated... freely, over three thousand dollars in cash.  The owner did not provide any receipts for our "tax-exempt" contributions, just stuck our money in her pocket and gave hugs in return. Things seemed fine until we were asked to board an MSSD service dog "for the weekend".  The weekend turned into 6 weeks and the dog could not be left at home alone because it defecated in the house, rolled in it, and ran all over the furniture and carpets (separation anxiety).  When we asked the owner to take the dog back she refused, leaving us with an extra dog to tend to that could not be left at home which in turn blocked me from taking my own dog to training, as the summer weather was too hot to bring the MSSD dog and leave it in the car.  In fact we could not travel or spend our summer doing what we wanted to at all, as long as we had the MSSD dog. We ended up placing it with its previous handler when he was able to take her back, and then moved 280 miles away for the duration of construction season (6 weeks).  Upon returning early September we inquired again, as we had since our dog's Public Access Test was successfully completed in April 2013, for the documentation of that test.  We'd been told it would be ready in May, then other excuses were made... but the documentation was never given.  We realized at that point we'd been being led along and given excuses but our service dog still lacked proper documentation.  We refused to donate any further funds and decided to hold off on additional training until we saw some sign that her Public Access Test had been official and documented.  The owner/trainer refused to provide it.  So we asked for a receipt for our donations, and that too has been withheld. She offered to refund $350. we had paid toward a fund raiser, and that, also, has not materialized.  I finally asked why her dog who growls at people, attacks other dogs, and is unfit for public service was set up with ID and documentation but our dog is not, and the owner began an obscene cussing tirade, screaming over the phone nonstop and then hung up, and followed that by texting that I was not to contact her again. My husband attempted to ask for the documents and she instead gave him her interpretation of my personal medical and mental status in front of another service dog handler, and has continued to speak poorly of me to the remaining members in training.  I would no longer recommend this "business" to anyone who truly needs a service dog, because the trainer cannot even train or handle her own dog and her follow-through is disrupted by unprofessional outbursts and endless excuses.
