  • 5 star review  Sent my 2 dogs to KC Dawgz board & train for 2 weeks while we were on a trip! Came home to very well behaved dogs!! Our 3 year old, Brynn, was so leash aggressive we didn't want to take her anywhere. Don't have that problem anymore! She's great! We are now going to KC Dawgz on Saturday at 11:00 to sharpen our own training skills! Mike and his team are AWESOME!

  • 5 star review  Ulysses was our dog's assigned trainer for the two week board & train program. I was very apprehensive about spending the money on a 3 year old mutt, but the dog is 80 pounds and was unmanageable for my wife and daughter. When we left the dog, we made it clear we had high expectations. Ulysses asked pointed questions about issues we were having with the dog, and put extra attention on the problem areas. He got to know our dog quickly, identified her motivators, and put her in training situations over and over. Ulysses hard work and dedication took a barking, leash aggressive, horrible to walk, stubborn dog, and train her into a full integrated family pet. The only regret we had was suffering 3 years with an incorrigible dog. We are a dog family, and when the time comes to get another puppy, it is going to veterinarian for a full physical, and then to KC Dawgs for training.

  • 5 star review  KC Dawgz was a wonderful experience from day 1, the weeks flew by and we were sad to no longer have class on Wednesday night. We took the Puppy 101 Class for our brand new rescue pup. Mo gave us tools to help redirect behavior and create a positive environment for our learning pup! Even though this was a group class, Mo knew each dog and each owner. She helped each family deal with their dogs on an individual level but at the same time learn from each other, as many of us were dealing with the same puppy behaviors. Mo gave us the foundational tools to communicate and gain control of our pet, but also appreciated her love for dogs and recognizes that they are pets and are will not always be perfect and it’s ok to have fun! We will definitely be back for my classes!

  • 5 star review  We had the best experience with KC Dawgz! Our 6-month-old puppy participated in the 2-week Board and Train Program. We worked with Maureen, who was so nice and knowledgeable! Our dog had a hard time adjusting at first and everyone was quick to give her extra attention and love so that she felt reassured during her stay. Even Mike, the owner, reached out to see what could be done so that we were 100% satisfied with our experience! We wanted more frequent updates of our puppy and Maureen was happy to send pictures and daily updates to let us know how our puppy was progressing and what was accomplished each day. Our puppy was unsure of other dogs before training and the day-play aspect to the program really helped our puppy feel more confident around other dogs, and she made a bunch of friends over her stay! Prior to training, our puppy struggled with basic commands and was not a good leash-walker. We saw HUGE progress in these skills and were especially pleased by her heeling ability!! We are so happy we worked with KC Dawgz and will continue to work with them to refine our puppy’s skills!

  • 5 star review  We did the 2 week board and train for our one year old goldendoodle. It was amazing and the best training we have ever had for a dog. Maureen was amazing and showed a real love for our dog. We would highly recommend KC Dawgz.

  • 5 star review  Took my German Shepherd Mac to KC Dawgz in March for the board and train program, and I had a great experience! Mac is a different dog in the most amazing way. I can now take him in public without any obedience issues (jumping, pulling on the leash) which was a huge problem in the past. My dog loves the staff here and he still sees them from time to time. I definitely recommend taking your pup here!

  • 5 star review  Excellent trainers, Mo and Mike. I have a 3 yo anxious, big mixed mutt who they kept calm and showed me how to introduce him slowly into desired behavior. I was sent home with “ homework “ for my pooch and when I’m comfortable with his progress I can schedule his next class with the trainers. I bought a one on one package deal, the way to go for now but will be doing the bigger classes in due time. I’m also considering the boarding programs, just would be pretty cool to drop him off and pick him up “trained”. KC DAWGZ trainers are dedicated, knowledgeable and love animals. These guys were a great find!

  • 5 star review  We took our 10-month old Rhodesian Ridgeback to KC Dawgz. We were looking all over in Kansas City and St. Louis for dog training and boarding. We jumped all in with the 28-day Board & Train package. Best money we have ever spent for our puppy! We picked her up and she is a completely different dog. Athena is now well mannered, and a whole lot easier to manage at home. It is awesome to have her home and minding like we always wanted her to. The trainers at KC Dawgz are awesome and answer all of your questions and concerns. And the owner takes time out to come and say hello to you as well. They are all truly involved in the training of your dog. It isn't a cookie cutter business, they truly do care for your pets like you would want them to. Hands down the best experience we could have hoped for. THANK YOU KC DAWGZ!!!!!!!

  • 5 star review  I used KC Dawgs to train my Bernese Mountain Dog to be a therapy dog for hospitals, nursing homes, and memory care units. She’s only 2 and is usually a very boisterous dog but Caleb did so well with her!! Her energy was turned into focus in 4 weeks and the change in her has been jaw dropping, honestly. On top of her training, they also trained me and taught me how to continue with her training. The investment is completely worth it! Caleb was great and I’d highly recommend using KC Dawgs!
