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!
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 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!
KC dawgz was OUTSTANDING! My dog has never walked so amazing on a leash before. they still give your dog so much love and attention. I’m so happy that i chose them to train my dog!
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!
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.
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!
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
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.
KC Dawgz saved us. The trainers are great. Maureen, wow she’s amazing. Well worth the money. Every trainer knows their job well.
