What Our Clients Are Saying...
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!

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!

Mike and his staff are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I have a 1 year old black lab mix who is very energetic and needed training/structure. Mike developed a customized training plan and my dog's behavior has changed dramatically for the better in a short period of time. I'd highly recommend KC Dawgz to anyone who is looking for high quality professional obedience training for their dog.

I have worked with several trainers and must say that by far my best experience has been with KC Dawgz. Me and my boy have worked with Mo (Maureen) and she is amazing. What separates her from other trainers I have worked with are the little insights into canine behavior and how to use those to your advantage while training your pooch. They are pros and I will continue to work with them for the foreseeable future, I highly recommend!

We signed up initially for private lessons for our puppy since we would not be able to attend all of the puppy classes due to us moving. But they were very accommodating and we were able to go to half of the puppy classes before moving. The staff is amazing and very knowledgable, we had so much fun at the puppy classes and are sad we could not stay. If we move back I would defiantly bring my dog here again for training.

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!

We’ve been bringing our dog here since he was a puppy and they are the BEST in town for training. The new facility is amazing and so well-maintained. Maureen is so great with our pup and I love that you can tell she has a relationship with every dog that she trains. Highly recommend taking your dogs here to become the best they can be!

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!

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!
