What Our Clients Are Saying...
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.
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!!!!!!!
We took our 3 year old rescue Annie (pointer/heeler mix) for private training and worked 1 on 1 with Mo. Mo was so attentive to our needs, and did an excellent job with us as handlers, allowing us both to develop our skills and teach us how to train our dog. Their methods build effortlessly on each other week to week and I have seen such a wonderful change in our dog’s behavior and overall demeanor. It is an investment you will not regret and a group of people that truly love their job. Mo lives and breathes all things dog training and is able to confidently direct both dogs and humans! We highly recommend KC Dawgz.
KC Dawgz is all that is promised. They went above and beyond our expectations and our dog came back a different dog. Special shout-out to Maureen (Mo) and owner Mike! Highly recommend KC Dawgz for anyone needing any dog training. Excellent knowledge of dog training techniques and you feel their passion. Love you guys- kudos!
This place was the best! We have a golden doodle and he did better than we ever could have hoped for! A word of advice when looking at these reviews. Look at the two negative ones. Both are not customers. And one knows tons about dog training and is virtually an expert...but his girlfriend took her dog to someone else. Just strikes me as a made up review. But I digress. Maybe I can’t believe it because my experience was the exact opposite of what was described by the haters. Mike was awesome. Spent about 2 1/2 hours with me regarding my dog. Was overly transparent and open about his methods. And he actually stated electric collar would not be good for our dog. He also gave every insider detail on training. To the point that you could train your next dog based on how much information he shared. Not that I would. He was that good and professional that I will continue to use him. And I was totally against getting a trainer for my dog. Consider me a skeptic converted. He was awesome, professional, committed and passionate about dogs and training them. I could continue but I think you get the picture. Read any of the other reviews if you don’t. Thanks Mike!!!!! We have a totally different dog. He is so eager to please us and try to get our approval. It sounds silly but he is even more loving and more interested in us!
These trainers are amazing! We did the 2 week board and train and can't believe the progress our dog made while there! He was a repeat visitor to the city pound before we rescued him. Very loving, but too clever for his own good and needed some help finding his motivations and direction. We waffled about the price quite a bit before signing him up but decided if you'd pay this $$ for a physical ailment to heel/help your dog then you should be willing to pay it for their mental health and wellness as well. It was definitely worth it! He's a completely different dog and we (dog and humans) are all so much happier for it! I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to help their dog be a happier, more manageable part of their family.
I recently adopted my Great Dane puppy and have been having basic behavior problems and separation anxiety. Apollo and I have never been apart so I was a little nervous about sending him away for two weeks. Kc Dawgz took amazing car of my puppy and let me call and ask about updates whenever I wanted and would reach out to me and let me know how he was doing. There are also webcams to watch your dog throughout the day. Everyone at this facility was nice and respectful and very intelligent. Huge shout out to Ulysses who trained my dog and me as well. My pup is now so well behaved and I am a more confident dog owner
Training at KC Dawgz is amazing. We brought our German Shepherd puppy to puppy class there - that class was led by Mike, and it was amazing. Our puppy learned so much and got to experience so many new and different activities. It's a great puppy class - really well structured to build on basic obedience. We liked it so much we signed up for private lessons after the class ended with both our puppy and our adult dog with reactivity issues. We are doing private lessons with Maureen and we love her. She is so great with both of our dogs and they have both improved by leaps and bounds since we started training with her. We get so many compliments on our dogs behavior! We had tried 4 or 5 different trainers and methods with our reactive dog and nothing helped - after just 3 lessons she is already unbelievably better. We can't praise Maureen enough - we adore her! Anyone looking for dog training should come here. They take a balanced approach and always have the dogs best interests in mind.
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!
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.
