Prior to training here I spoke with local dog owners, veterinarians and professional dog trainers to get a feel for what people thought of the training options in the area. One vet said, “Extreme K-9 is like the gold standard.” That certainly made me feel good but I was also hearing they were expensive and one dog owner passed along some hearsay that said, “It was their way or the highway.” That wasn’t much of a turnoff to me. I didn’t like the idea of going to a dog trainer with a closed mind anyway. Obviously not a good way to learn something new.
So I’ve been working with Extreme K-9 for a couple weeks now and I’m incredibly happy. They are very professional, kind and most importantly know what they are doing. I can already see an improvement in Atlas my Australian Cattle Dog. We have a ways to go but I know the trainers at Extreme K-9 have a plan that will get us there. Their confidence in Atlas’s ability to change is inspiring. I can’t wait to see where we end up with the help we’re getting from Extreme K-9.
