Our Labradors Brewer (8yo) and Chara (3yo) were both highly reactive, lunged/pulled on the leash so bad it made walks miserable, and barked at anyone and that walked by our house -- they were driving us nuts, even though they are really loving family dogs. In four days, Ryan and Milo had them in a MUCH better place. We have our dogs (and our sanity) back, truly. A few more at-home sessions will get us where we want to be so we can keep up the momentum and build off of the great foundation they started. I can't say enough, I'm so grateful we found them. We always felt investing in training like this would be too expensive, but I'm so glad we did it. In less than a week it's already made a huge difference. If I could put more stars I would. Can't recommend them enough!! See More

The team at K9SF was just wonderful with our sweet pup. Not only did they keep us in the loop every step of the way, but they went above and beyond by sending v...ideos and being incredibly responsive when an unrelated situation arose with our little guy. It was easy to see how much they cared about our puppy and were invested in his training. We'd recommend K9SF any day! See More

We brought our dog Satchel to Ryan and Milo at K9SF in May 2017 for personalized training. They listened patiently to our explanations of the issues and Ryan l...ater gave us his assessment of Satchel's needs and the training required. It was clear from Ryan's feedback that he had listened carefully to us and incorporated what we said into his assessment. We were impressed by his knowledge of dog behavior, his skill in assessing both dogs and clients, and his courteous and professional attitude.

Our sessions with Ryan were fun and very helpful. He was clear and patient in his explanations and offered suggestions concerning the tools and toys that might work best to motivate our dog. His training was also hands-on. He demonstrated techniques and then provided guidance as we tried them. We found Ryan consistent, flexible and patient in his training techniques and in his conversations with us. He also was clear and direct in his assessment of our dog, which helped us work through a few serious issues we faced.

We took advantage of K9SF's Board and Train program with Ryan and were very pleased with the effectiveness of the training and the progress Satchel made. We also appreciated the follow-up session where Ryan demonstrated Satchel's progress and helped us understand the methods we could use to maintain and improve behavior. All around, it was a very good experience for us and for Satchel.

We highly recommend Ryan and K9SF.

We learned of K9SF through the website Thumbtack. Our first visit at the K9SF location in Minneapolis was Feb 12, 2017. We were pleased with the assessment pr...ocess of our dog’s issues, and their proposed plan to help fix the problems. Ryan and his trainer, Milo, took time to listen to what we had to say about our experiences with our dog. They are professional, experienced in the area of dog training/behavior, and friendly to both humans and dogs. Our dog, Bella, who is a six year old Springer Spaniel, had some long term behavior problems, and some new issues. They recommended that we participate in their Board and Train program; we began the program on Feb 22. Board and Train was designed to allow K9SF have frequent visits for intensive training (kind of like a doggy boot camp) with Bella during a three day stay at Downtown Dogs daycare in Minneapolis. Downtown Dogs is a well-run and an amazing doggy daycare and have a working relationship with K9SF; so they “know the program.” Ryan and Milo were able to work with Bella without any influence by my husband and myself. This allowed them to assess what she is capable of changing, and what confusing messages that we may have been sending to Bella that translated into unacceptable behavior. After this period, we were brought together with Bella and we were then “trained” on how to achieve the desired outcome. Bella has improved in all but one area. Ryan and Milo will continue to help us work on this problem area until it is corrected.

We were impressed on the responsive communication that both Ryan and Milo provided to us during the entire process. They sent us daily updates, along with photos and videos of Bella’s progress. It was obvious to us that Bella was in good hands which helped us relax about the process.

Ryan had recently started up this business in the Mpls area in the last few months. This location is small; however, he has another training center in TN, and has relationships with various dog services in the Twin City area to aid in their venue for training. We were reluctant to take a chance of giving possession of our beloved family member to someone we did not know, but once we met Ryan and Milo, our concerns were soon diminished.

We highly recommend that you consider consulting with K9SF for your dog’s behavioral issues. If you have any questions or concerns, please leave a comment to my review and I will get back to you.
