Nino and his training staff did such an excellent job working with our 2.5 year old GSD Ajax. Ajax was leash reactive, unreliable with commands, treat dependent, and aggressive towards our cat. With... a baby on the way we wanted to ensure Ajax would listen and obey when it counted. After 8 weeks at K9 Academy he is a changed dog but with all the same personality that we love. He is no longer leash reactive, obeys commands each and every time and without the need for treats even with extremely distracting situations. We are able to take him to crowded beaches with multiple dogs and he is calm and responsive to commands. He is showing to be very gentle and attentive to our newborn baby. Can't thank you enough!

We cannot thank you enough for the amazing job you did with our Mya. She is so well behaved now we cannot even believe she is the same crazy puppy we dropped off. She is so well mannered and well beha...ved in any situation now. We love being able to bring her anywhere we can without having to worry about her behavior. Our kids are so excited to have her home and can't wait to make even more memories. See More

I can't thank you enough for your hard work and dedication to Belle.
I say this with tears in my eyes because the last two weeks home have been amazing. We were at my parents house at a cookout this l...ast weekend and she was there. She was calm, obedient and everyone was going on and on at how well behaved and sweet she was.
She was being friendly towards my parents dogs and greetes everyone with such great mannerz and didnt barked once.
Thank you a thousand times.
8 weeks ago I never thought we would be able to bring her to things like this or have a well behaved, obedient dog.

We are thrilled with the way our shepherd came back to us! He is so much better to handle and is great around the kids. Thanks so much!

We have had Max, our 1yr old Shepard, home from K9 for one month now. Taylor and Nino and staff did an absolutely amazing job with him. We now have an animal we can control and the tools we need to c...ontinue his progress. Facilities and staff are great. You will be amazed when your dog completes their training. � See More

Our daughter needed her dog trained to be a service dog. Nino and Taylor and the staff at K9 Academy are extremely knowledgeable and talented at training! Lucy went in a distracted, hyper little and came back to us well behaved and focused. She is still our sweet and fun girl, but she is trained to know when to work and when to play. We are extremely happy with our experience! See More

Nino and his staff have done a wonderful job with our German Shepherd Dog. She is very high spirited and was a real handful for us, but after two months at K9 she was a new dog! Two years later she wonderful and a treasure. We always board her at K9 and she is always excited to come.

The staff is always welcoming and personable, very easy to deal with. We are so happy to have this great facility in our community.

We have a St Bernard puppy named Cocoa. Cocoa would play too rough, would often chase the kids around the living room, pull during our walks, was tall enough to get on the counters and she would dig i...n the backyard. We decided to have her attend boarding school and now she is like a completely new dog. This place is awesome!!! See More

Nino and his staff have been doing a great job with my German Shepard, Duke! It's only been two weeks and I am already seeing a huge improvement in Dukes obedience. Nino goes the extra mile for his c...lients and is always attentive to the needs of his dogs in training! I am very impressed and would highly recommend his services to anyone that needs training for their dog (s)!!! See More

Very nice facility, good quality trainers, friendly. Nino and his staff are outgoing and personable. Our dog Boomer is comfortable being here. It says a lot about how he is being treated when we com...e for a visit, he comes to give us big doggie kisses, then returns to playing with his canine friends. See More

I think it is TERRIBLE you are breeding Malinois and Labradors together and advertising it as a designer breed. This is how breeds get ruined. You should not be breeding these dogs and you should be ...ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED. Thumbs down on you! See More

Five stars to Nino and trainers! Our Golden puppy, Lexi, went through the six week training course and she is awesome. She still has a lot of puppy in her but she is so well behaved and knows all the ...commands. Would highly recommend K9!! See More

Anybody who breeds malinois's and labs together and calls them designer doesn't need to nor should they ever breed. Your a disgrace to all breeders that are trying to improve and keep these breeds true.

They breed "designer" mutts and sell on a "first come first serviced" bases. They are out for money not improving a breed!

We're hoping this is the last month of very cold weather but until warmer times we'll keep using pet friendly ice melter for our front porch and the yards! Regular salt can be very harsh on your dogs feet so we make sure to use only pet friendly salt to keep everyone safe on the ice!

1 male Mal puppy left! Such a cute boy! Laid back, sweet, playful, balanced - loves attention and playing, hes showing a nice medium drive so will do great with an active family that is interested in personal protection or other dog sports!

Why make end of day sweeping boring when Milo one of our Service Dogs in training is extra happy to lend a hand...or mouth 😂 Milo is such a phenominal pup! He's wearing no collars, no leashes attached to him, he's doing everything for praise and the need to please his human!

Hi friends, To those of you who know me well, this will come as no surprise. I, along with my lovely family, are off on our next new adventure together. But this time, we need a little help to make our dreams come true. As many of you know, we added our oldest child to our family through adoption...
