What Our Clients Say
What did you like most about DTC's training?
She is so much calmer after training and we can really enjoy her in our home now. Jonathan was able to give us many pointers and things to avoid. He gave us some insight into how our dog sees things and how we could improve our management of her. We look forward to having her continue with her education on weekends we are away.
We took Hershey to Tractor Supply today. They had lots of people and dogs – a free vaccination day. And he did great!! They also had a dog adoption – so we stopped by there to. An older woman and, in fact, several people were impressed – of course my head could barely get through the doors!! You should have seen Bob – “thats my good boy” Then we went to Starbucks and he was great – he just laid under the seat. I can’t thank you enough for all the training you did with him. It’s wonderful to be able to take him out. He’s getting better with getting into the car too!! Thank you again.” -Bev, Bob and Hershey
“Shannon, thank you for the great work with Bailey. She’s doing great and I definitely see a difference. My boyfriend came over last night and was really impressed – we all were able to hang out in our own space!
- Beth and Bailey
We couldn't be happier with the change in our miniature pinscher after she returned from training camp! She's still a happy, playful pup, but she's much more in control of her energy, and she is fully potty trained!
Melinda was very patient with her and gave us all the help and support we needed during and after camp.
We had tried group classes at one of the big pet stores, but they don't compare to the training we received from K9 Solutions. We have no problems taking Vienna on trips with us because we know she will be well-behaved, even in a new environment.
This was a short weekend continuing education stay but she was starting to do better with leash walking and also wait more patiently to be let out of the crate when we came home. We enjoyed the leash training exercises at pick up and have been re-enforcing and practicing with leash walking with Lucy. We also appreciated feedback we got to help with jumping and counter surfing.
The level of support and follow up from all of the trainers has been first class. The level of knowledge and patience of my training team was impressive, and the multiple online platforms made it easy to track Toffee's progress.
We had tried five other agencies (for Sunny or our other little Sheltie) before we found Dog Training Camp USA. They just weren't very effective. Our interactions with Dog Training Camp USA are the best we have ever had.
Sunny is getting better and better through the trainer's great efforts - our little one is less fearful, more relaxed, even more terrific to be with.

[I like having] zero worries about my dogs being safe and happy while I am away.
Olivia is our 3rd boxer…..and man did she break the mold with being a very strong headed, stubborn, free willed little puppy. We were at my wits end when we found your organization’s 3 week doggie boot camp. Olivia was lucky enough to have lived with Anitra and came back a totally different dog. She grew in confidence, manners, discipline, create training, and overall respect for the humans in her life. We can’t thank you enough for what you have been able to share with us and how you have made our family complete. Amazing is not even close enough to how we would express what your group and trainers are to us. Thank you with all our hearts.

“I loved everything about the program and if I had to pick just three things they would be: Focusing on what my dog needed to build his confidence which has made him a happier puppy, the professionalism as well as the frequent picture updates and progress reports, and ,lastly, I would say that now Merlin and I have Shannon in our corner. She understands Merlin and truly wants him to succeed. All around Merlin became a different puppy after training. His fear and aggressive issues don’t rule our lives anymore. After his training, we learned tools to help him cope and even conquer his fears. I am extremely happy that I chose boarding school training. It allowed my puppy to bond with Shannon. With boarding school, Merlin’s non-healthy quirks could be seen and corrected easier than with class-only training. I would highly recommend this program. The program and Shannon not only helped Merlin, she helped our family gain the confidence we needed to raise one adorable Papillon. Who, like his namesake, has a magical way of drawing you in.” ~Melinda & Merlin
The trainers are awesome, and really appreciated their sending texts and photos during my dog's stay!
Shannon felt at the end of the training she needed a few more days with cooper and we loved that she individualized things with him. Cooper is less anxious and we have learned how to keep him busy when we are doing things where he shouldn't be.
What a better way to have your baby taken care of AND refresh his training. He began to listen instead of ignore us. Knowing that we are the pack leader (s) and he has to fall in line under us.

[Angus] Comes home tired, not stressed out after an extended stay.
I like the fact that Rosie's training is reinforced when we have to be away. I also think your trainers are very good, and Rosie likes them too.
I loved that Kersti was interested in us as a family and tried to help understand where we need the most support.
If your are frustrated with your dogs manors, you owe it to yourself and your best friend to learn simple and really effective techniques for a long and happy friendship.
Sadie listens when I speak! She no longer pushes me around, or demands for me to do things. She gets my attention on my time, she gets to eat on my time, and she gets to play on my time. She's definitely learning that I'm the boss and not her play toy.
“I really appreciate the fact that you seem truly interested/concerned with Sayde’s progress. I’m also really appreciative of your willingness to work with my mom, niece, and nephew. As I’ve said from the beginning, having Sayde behave properly around/with them is one of my primary concerns. So I appreciate all of your hard work. And while you have a business to run and money is obviously important, you appeared more focused on results, which I thought was awesome.”
We are so pleased with the results of Boot Camp, uh, “boarding school”. Barkley is like a different dog, a pleasure to be around and a delightful part of the family. -Meribeth and Barkley
Harper and Barney
The biggest change we saw in our dogs was that they were obedient! They finally "got it," that they were not in charge, the people are in charge. It made everything so much easier. We no longer dreaded walking them or taking them out in public because they now knew how to act. Of course they need reminders, but the foundation of good manners had already been laid.
I realized that I was living my life around the dog and catering to her every whim. She was running the house not me. Lola has learned more self control since being in the program. I have a better piece of mind since Lola went through the training. She still has her moments but she is not the holy terror that she used to be!
The program helped me to remember the blue is my dog. She is not a human, she is not my child, she is my dog. Yes, we can love them like children but we shouldn't humanize them because it can hurt their training, manners, and growth. Because my mental attitude changed I feel blue is trusting me more and more as well as more respect.
I saw blue is now able to settle and control her crazy energy. Some days aren't the best but we still work on it.
Prior to her training, Olivia was a "typical" wild boxer pup. She was never focused and would just do as she pleased. Olivia now has so much more confidence in not only herself, but also with Jan and I. With this self confidence comes a dog who now has amazing self-control, focus, and a calm demeanor. She has even been able to transfer this self-control and confidence to our other boxer Quincy, who has not attended the class yet.
[My trainer] was there for me 100% with daily pictures and updates about how Olivia was doing. It's one thing to know your dog is doing "ok", but to have a person so dedicated to both the success of the dog and of YOU, that's not easy to come by.
