We sent our 8 month old counter-surfacing, people jumping, rabbit chasing leash pulling doodle off to Prestigek9 and she returned knowing how to heel, mind us in the field with rabbits abounding, and no more counter surfing or jumping! Phoebe is a transformed dog! Thank you to the team of Spencer, Marissa, Dan and Raza. We recommend you whole heartedly!!
Prestige K9 did a fantastic job with our dog Gunther! We had about given up hope on training our high-drive, highly-reactive German Shepard, but he is now a much happier dog who knows his boundaries, has great self-control and listens well. I was worried about leaving him for 6 weeks, but he clearly formed a great bond with the trainers and is always happy to see them at the follow-up classes.
Clara Pond has been a PrestigeK9 graduate since she was a puppy. Best trainers that we have ever worked with! They truly understand the GSD breed and all the little quirks! Highly recommended any of the trainers, the family is growing and Clara loves them all! Keep up the great work!
Had both of our dogs trained here and it is so comforting to know that our hunting dogs have recall out in the fields. Very well behaved dogs now, thanks to their training. Great option for boarding too!
Our first experience with Prestige K9 was this past summer when we brought out 6 year old Wheaton Terrier in for a 5 week intensive board and train to break him of aggressive behavior and general obedience. We got back a new dog who was much more relaxed and self confident. We have since been boarding him when we go out of town for long periods which as been a fantastic reinforcement of the training. Lizzy and team are fantastic to work with. Always available to discuss needs and treat out dog like it was their own. We highly recommend Prestige K9 to friends and will be sure to bring our next dog in as a puppy for the correct start.
Our 2 year old English Pointer Flynn was pretty much out of control! Impossible to walk because he pulled so hard and went absolutely crazy every time we came across a rabbit or bird, as pointers do! We never allowed him off leash, knowing he would vanish as soon as he came across a bird. He was jumping on everything and destroying the house. We had a 2 week vacation planned and would have to board him so decided to send him to Prestige to see if they could help. I was amazed when they delivered him home!!!! He is perfectly behaved and best of all we've been enjoying taking him on walks off leash. A simple sit command and he'll stay while distractions go on all around him until he's told "free". They have been to the house twice to check on his progress and train us on new commands. We know he was treated well because he's always excited to see Lizzy and the team on these trips. This was one of the best decisions I've ever made and a bargain for the years of enjoyment ahead for the family with a much more enjoyable and happy Flynn! If you're on the fence, do it! You're dog will thank you!
Marissa and Spencer are AWESOME! We have had two dogs, a Vizsla and German Shorthaired Pointer, trained by them. We could not be more pleased with their behavior. Any dogs we get in the future will be trained by Prestige K9. We also have boarded our dogs at Prestige K9 when going on extended trips. They are a blessing!
I brought my adopted, 2 year old (new to me) female Doberman to K9 for a 4 week training session. I had only had her 3 weeks and although she was very LOVING, she clearly had ZERO training before I adopted her. I am new to the Springs and had no information on where to get training, so I did some online searching. I was more than a little nervous to just "drop her off" for 4 weeks, but I knew she needed more than just some 2 hour training sessions. I went out to the facility and Loved the large land parcel, indoor barn, training pens (plural) and the team. I brought Marcy out after Christmas, and did a mid course visit at two weeks. At 4 weeks I was informed they needed another week, and I was NOT charged for additional time. At 5 weeks they brought Marcy to me, and spent two hours training me on how to handle her. She was the same happy and playful dog, but she was well trained and obedient! One week later K9 stopped by my house again and spent time with us, went for a walk with us, answered my questions, and made some subtle correction advice. They offered to come back again, but that was not necessary. I love the off leash walks and fetch, calling her back and leashing her when other dogs walk by (She sits - wiggling) and the other owners remark how they wish their dog was so well behaved. I am very happy with K9 and my investment in my best friend. Is Marcy perfect? Nope! But 9 out of 10 works for me! If you would like to meet Marcy, contact K9 and they are allowed to give you my contact information. I live in Briargate.
Marissa and Spencer were amazing with our Roo. They worked with her so she could be a therapy dog at Mountain Vista High School and they did an amazing job getting her ready for her “job” of supporting a couple thousand high school kids. We get compliments on her behavior when she is out and about with us being the family dog, and she does an amazing job when she is at the school with the kids. Her training really showed when she went to a neighboring school to support those students when they lost a loved principal and then a student. She spent a day there loving up on those kids and offering her therapeutic support. I would send anyone to these guys for training - they know what they are doing.
Spencer and Marissa are awesome to work with. They make things so simple and explain things so well. We have seen great improvement in our dogs and quality of life with them! We are happier and our dogs are happier! I would recommend Prestige K9 to anyone who wants top quality training!
