What Our Clients Are Saying...

  • 5 star review  I can’t thank Mo and team enough for the work and effort they put into our dog. We adopted our 5 year old, 125 lbs boy and he had some bad habits that were a huge concern. He was a very aggressive guarder of bones and toys which made it hard for us to play and discouraged us from giving him fun things. Now he happily drops, leaves it and plays and plays! He also did a complete 180 on the leash and doesn’t pull! As big as he is it’s a major concern and it’s been so relaxing to take him on long walks so he can lose those extra pounds and also just so he can enjoy life! Mo also made strides for our dog’s aggression towards other dogs. He can now go to dog parks!!! (Muzzle on of course). Training here at KC Dawgz has taken so much stress and worry out of our lives and improved the relationship with our giant fur baby. I can’t thank Mo enough for her advice and help throughout this process. I highly recommend KC Dawgz to everyone! Rather fine tuning or (like us) a complete change they have really blow us away.

  • 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  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  Enzo and I really enjoyed KC Dawgz Puppy 101 class. Great atmosphere to learn and socialize puppies. There is a good mix of theory, practice, and puppy socialization. The staff do a good job of teaching the group and finding time to work individually. Mike is a wealth of knowledge and experience. On multiple occasions he stayed after class with us and others, providing additional tips and insight into various aspects of training. I am very happy with the Puppy 101 class, it has provided a solid base for Enzo and his owners to continue training.

  • 5 star review  I sent my 1-year old lab, Bucky, here over a year ago. When Bucky was a puppy, he was one of the hardest dogs I’ve ever owned. I taught him all the basic commands- but he only listened when he wanted to. After sending him to training with Mike for a month- Bucky now comes to work with me every day. He is our hospice emotional support animal. He is literally a perfect dog (not that he wasn’t before) but now he listens to everything, doesn’t need a leash, and he just hangs out next to me all the time. This was the best thing I could have done for my dog. I will do this for every dog I own after Bucky too.

  • 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  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.

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  KC Dawgz worked wonders with my very reactive 6 year old male Bouvier. I had tried several other trainers (one of which purported to be a board and train facility). I spent thousands of dollars trying to get his issues under control. Nothing worked, in fact the problem escalated. I was very hesitant to try again and thought I just had to live with his reactivity. I met with Mike and he convinced me to try again. I took a couple private lessons and then decided to try the 2 week board and train. During the two weeks, they kept me updated on his progress and sent me videos of him in situations where he would normally be reacting. I picked him up at the end of the two weeks and thought I had a new dog. I am so excited to enjoy walking my boy, he no longer acts out when ever we encounter a person, dog or bike. He isn’t completely perfect YET, but his improvement is AMAZING Thanks Maureen you are a genius.

  • 5 star review  We sent our dog lucky to the two week board and train. Lucky is a rescue and we were struggling with some frustrating behaviors. Caleb and Mike have been amazing. We now enjoy our dog! I can not recommend KC Dawgz enough.
