What Our Clients Are Saying...

  • 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  After being new to the area and totally unsure where to go to receive dog training for my 5 month old Golden Retreiver, I took a chance with KC Dawgz. Mike, Mo, and the rest of the staff have been absolutely amazing. The staff is TRULY passionate about dog training and will work with you every step of the way. The facility is spacious, clean, and up to date. Appointments are very flexible and they will truly go above and beyond to work with you, and most importantly, you and your dog end up having fun training!! I would strongly recommend starting with KC Dawgz.

  • 5 star review  We wish we could rate KC Dawgz even higher than 5/5! Our 5 month old puppy has so much fun when learning his new skills. He is always anxious to start learning and Mike makes the training fun and interactive for everyone. Mike always gives great tips and advice to help us train our new puppy on our own at home. Even after only 2 private sessions, we can already see improvement in our puppy’s behavior. We would highly recommend KC Dawgz!

  • 5 star review  Fantastic experience that exceeded all expectations. We took Fabulous Fiona, our Australian Cattle dog mix to the two-week board and train and the results were simply amazing. We have had dogs for 35 years that have all been well trained. However, In two weeks they corrected some behaviors and installed good obedience skills that would have taken us years. Not only did their training save us years and frustration, they have raised her ceiling. She walks wonderfully on the leash, sits/lays down....and stays. Recall is great, and she doesn't jump on folks. They also gave us the tools to correct some behaviors that we don't like....and its working! The program that they use is simple to understand and implement. The program includes follow up appointments with our invaluable, as she had to train us, after she trained the dog. We invested in our family member, and the return will be three-fold. Yes, we spent some some $$, but the cost averaging over her expected life it comes out to pennies a day. Our trainer (Shameless plug for Maureen) was professional, passionate and enthusiastic in her approach. The results cannot be debated, nor the fact that our little Fiona loves her trainer! The owner and staff were all wonderful. It will take some work on our part but we know the course. and have the road map. You may see Fabulous Fiona around town at restaurant patios, home depot or other places where dogs are allowed. She will be the "cutie with the ears" living the dream. The best is not what they did for us, but what they did for Fiona. She will have a wonderful life of adventure and fun, thanks to the great people at KC Dawgz!

  • 5 star review  KC Dawgs was amazing! They worked with me to make sure I got the help and training I needed for my puppy. They took time to teach me at home techniques to maintain the training as well. Our trainer was both knowledgeable and very experienced and made both me and my pup feel at ease through the 2 week process.

  • 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  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  KC Dawgz was the best investment we could have made for our rescue pup, Walter! Rescuing a dog comes with the unknown of what they endured prior to a life with you (their new owners). Walter did well to some commands but had trouble with his reactivity to other animals, people, basically anything that moved in front of him. We also had issues with counter surfing and mouthing. Although Walter is still a pup, it was a night and day difference after doing the 2 week board and train program. Walter is a high energy pup that needed a lot of patience and corrections for him to understand. An E collar had to be used and still does to correct his unwanted behaviors. As long as it is being used correctly, no harm should come to your dog while using the E collar. It had and continues to work tremendously for Walter. Those who abuse that method of correction and training are causing disconnect and harm to their dog. KC Dawgz is a great training company and I highly, highly recommend them to all those I talk to about training their dogs! I can’t say it enough on how great they are with the dogs and their owners. We continue to see great progress from Walter and all the thanks goes to Mike and Mo and the rest of the KC Dawgz team! Thank you KC Dawgz!
