  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  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!

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 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  We wish we could rate KC Dawgz even higher than 5/5! Our 5 month old puppy has so much fun when learning his new skills. He is always anxious to start learning and Mike makes the training fun and interactive for everyone. Mike always gives great tips and advice to help us train our new puppy on our own at home. Even after only 2 private sessions, we can already see improvement in our puppy’s behavior. We would highly recommend KC Dawgz!

  • 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  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!
