LUV-A-K9 INC. REVIEWS
Honestly, I cannot say enough amazing things about Luv-A-K9! Their staff are so kind and supportive and always go above and beyond. They were able to tailor and modify classes and services for my senior girl as she aged so she could still get out and do purposeful and fun things, and now they are doing the same for my very young puppy! In addition to classes I use their Exclusive Services (dog walks and feeding) and it is SO amazing to be able to go to work and not worry about your furry friend because you know they are going to be visited by trustworthy, reliable Luv-a-K9 staff who spend their whole visits completely focused on your dog!!!! Plus, their dog walk report cards are the best email I get each day Highly recommend the classes and exclusive services and can’t wait for all the adventures my new puppy and I will have at this business!
I have been attending Luv a K9 since we got my Golden Retriever in 2018. I have now completed several courses with her, my Aussie, and two of my families/friends dogs. Cannot say enough good things about them and their trainers!! They are willing to help with anything you need, and have helped (and encouraged) me to compete in sports with my pups. Forever thankful for the community they have built, foundations they gave me, and the relationship they have helped me build with my dogs.
Had our first session this morning, and were so impressed with how much ground we covered, and how knowledgeable our trainers were. So worth every penny!!! We now have a definitive list of things to work on, with the confidence and the understanding needed to get our pup on the right track!!! 100% recommend LUV-A K9....Scott & Deanna Bennett.

SHAGGY DOG PET SERVICES REVIEWS
Victoria was very compassionate when listening to my corncerns about my cat Apricot and her new housemates. Victoria has always told us 100% of the truth and been very realistic with our training. I really apreciated her teaching us(the humans) what we needed to know to improve our animals lives while maintaining their natural behaviours. Apricot got the best cat highway of her life and we are always striving to create enriching experiences for her. Victoria was very fair with us and flexible when it came to our timmings of training and whne we needed to pay - overall she has had excellent quality training and was extremely professional.
Victoria took the time to learn about my dog's behavioral past and listen to what my concerns were. She helped me understand Willow's behavior and how to best address it. She was so supportive, kind and professional. I completely trusted her with my dog! Willow would be SO excited every time we saw Victoria and Winston. I especially appreciate how Victoria is so flexible. She once quickly made a last-minute trip to take Willow on a walk-and-train, when other plans didn't work out. I am thrilled with Willow's progress and now feel like I have a good handle on things. Thank you Victoria and Winston!!!
Victoria is a wonderful trainer who provided behaviour modification training with our 8 month old puppy when we were struggling. She's compassionate and explained clearly what we needed to do every step of the way. Can't thank her enough for her help and support.

KINGSTON CANINE CENTER REVIEWS
I had an excellent experience with Bill. (Deb, who is mentioned in many reviews, had passed away before I started training with Bill). I had a 3-month-old husky mix when we started, and though huskies are notoriously stubborn, Lucca took to the training extremely well and was always excited to go to Bill's. Bill has a great way with dogs and with people (except the rare few, who I see from one review, have unreasonable expectations). He is relaxed but firm. He is not precious about dogs. If they need to be reined in, he does so, recognizing that it is in their own best interests. He also is not precious about people, letting them know gently but clearly when they have to up their game in managing their pet--or when their pet is engaging in potentially dangerous activity. The creature who benefited most from the training was me. I have so much more knowledge and confidence now--and a solid relationship with Lucca--thanks to Bill's training. I happily recommend him to anyone looking for dog training.
Bill is amazing and so patient, he helped my Autistic son and I train his service dog. Unfortunately his dog suddenly passed, but my son is working with Bill again with his new dog. Bill feels like family even after our dog is trained we’ll continue our weekly training to help keep our dog mentally stimulated.
Recommend them for individual training . They work with you to get the best from your dog using positive reinforcement with a very occasional correction if needed. Bill and Debbie know their stuff! Thanks.
