What Our Clients Are Saying...
Our dog just completed the two week board and train program at KC Dawgz. Although we were skeptical about sending our dog away that long (my dog is like my child), I can definitely say that it was worth it! Mike and his staff is fabulous and our dog came home with strong obedience and behavior skills that we would have never thought possible! Our dog also had some issues with potty training and after working with Mike and taking his advice in our going home session, we are almost a week out without one accident. Our dog basically uses the bathroom on command! We left KC Dawgz with a newfound knowledge and insight that we never knew about canines! We have already told several of our friends about KC Dawgz and the fantastic care and training our dog has received, and will continue to refer anyone and everyone to this service. I simply cannot stress enough how amazed and thankful we are that we made this investment in our dog, it has definitely been worth it. Do not believe the negative reviews, Mike and his staff are experts and know exactly what they are doing! Thank you KC Dawgz, you are absolutely a first rate, first class business!

KC Dawgz is amazing! I enrolled my one year old German Shepherd in their 2 week board and train program and I was floored by the results. My German Shepherd was a whole new dog! He was hyper, pulling on walks, and barking at anyone who came near the yard. Now, he is much more calm, well behaved, and walks right next to me on walks. I no longer have anxiety taking Graham out in public. His trainer, Maureen was great too! She took the time to fully explain all Graham had learned to me and set me up for success so I was prepared to continue training my pup at home. She is incredibly knowledgeable and answered all questions that I had during the process. Overall, I had a great experience with KC Dawgz and I highly recommend them!

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!

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.

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!

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 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!

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!!!!!!!

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!
