The Strategic K9 did nothing but make sure that my Kaytra boy and my family were at ease with the process as a whole. We had adopted him from his original owner and simply put, he didn’t have a lot of the traditional obedience training not only to add he was also a very stubborn independent Shiba inu who really did what he wanted when he wanted. Had little to no recall, ran away from home multiple times, and would barely listen unless it involved his food. I reached out to Michelle and Kevin about our situation and we set up an initial evaluation, but it also goes towards any of the training packages they offer for your pup. Needless to say, at the evaluation I was able to learn a SO MUCH to feel even more confident about the at-home training we were doing on our own. I watched countless amounts of videos and read a whole bunch of books, but Kevin was able to dive in and see where we could improve. After the evaluation, they work up offers on the different packages they provide. Dog training is NOT cheap, and I shared my plans with the team on how though we may not be able to commit to any of the programs within the next or so, we were VERY interested and just needed some time to put aside the money. Michelle followed up regularly sharing potential dates that were approaching and when we were ready, we selected a date and planned for his onboarding fir a Day Train program for 15 days. Communication on all the forms, and via email/text were all very clear and concise. We had a strict work schedule and they worked around pick-up times for us as at times we would have to work outside of the regular 9-5. Each day, Kevin was open to having a small conversation on things they were working on and some input on training we could implement at home as “homework”. As each day went on Kaytra was improving, learning and I could see the improvements as time went on. For us, each training tool (slip-leads, prongs collar, and e-collars) was all implemented as he progressed through training, it wasn't just slapped onto him from the start. We have a lot more peace of mind when it comes to him being unleashed around the home without any worries that he’ll bolt out and more confidence with any chance of recalling him out of danger. Tips for anyone interested: - Do your research, there is a whole universe that revolves around dog training, really try and find the right fit for your dog, as the training will be a lifelong investment. - You get out of what you put in. You will have to ensure that you are doing your part at home and when you are out with your dog, make sure to give them their reps of training, and work on everything they train on. They offer lifetime park classes once your pup graduates, and that's and easy opportunity to get some more reps. The training never stops. - For me, I would share with Kevin all of the things we were working on at home and things we would struggle with to help further advance his training regiment. - COMMUNICATE as much as you can with the team, with our busy schedule its easy to misinterpret or forget to share little details. Whether it be habits your dogs does OR simply scheduling. The Strategic K9 Team was there for us every step of the way and made sure Kaytra was looked after day in and day out. - If you want to support a solid family business this is the way to go. We are so much more confident and even more excited to see how far we can go with this training. Nothing but proud we chose to Strategic K9.

We on boarded Lucy for the 3 week program. We know we make the the best decision for Lucy and us. She is so well trained, using the tools and commands Kevin has taught us. We know it’s up to us to keep the habits Lucy has learned. Strategic K9 offers park, public meet ups through the Band app where we can get refresher training and be part of the family ❤️. We can’t thank Strategic K9 enough

I am thrilled to share my experience with an outstanding dog trainer like Kevin who worked wonders with my little guy Kobe. From the first consultation we had, we knew Kevin was the right trainer for us. He genuinely cares about your dog. It was evident that his passion and dedication to canine training is truly exceptional. He treats your dog like a family member and kept us informed of his progress with pictures or videos. Which gave us a peace of mind. We had a 7 month old puppy that I knew we were messing up with trying to train ourselves. And, now with the knowledge Kevin has showed me I have a head start on continuing to apply Kevin's instructions with Kobe at home. I'm so glad we found Kevin and Michelle.

Kevin and his staff were beyond amazing with our 8 month old Tibetan Mastiff mix, Bane when doing the 3 week board and train. We absolutely didn't know what to do as he was scared of everything from the moment we got him and already had a history of nipping. They worked day in and out building his confidence and skills, sending updates throughout the process. Kevin is very knowledgeable and gifted at what he does. He just has a way with dogs and if you trust the process and do the maintenance, his methods work. Bane is still doing great since training and thriving! Thanks again for everything!

One of the best decisions I have made as a dog owner was to work with the strategic K9 team. Recently did the day train with my doberman(Roux) and it made a night and day difference with how easy it was to handle him. Not only do they train your dog but they teach you how to be a better handler. Family owned and operated, supports the military, will work with your schedule, and geniunly nice people. Thank you Kevin and Michelle with your hard work with Roux and looking forward to scheduling more classes for him. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
