Spencer Bowman is a great trainer. He was able to show my dog Elsie what was required at a pace which matched her intelligence and did it in a a way where she succeeded. He took time to impart the lessons so that she really learned. He was relaxed and unhurried and he motivated Elsie at the right time. By having a calm and confident approach he imparted calmness to my dog, one of the main qualities of leadership. I can't say enough about Spencer and his ability to read the dogs and get the most out of their training.
Our experience was amazing. The care and training Abby got was great.
Thank you to the amazing trainers at Prestige K9! My 1 and a half year old Minnie Aussie was full of so much excitement she would jump all over people and act out of control any time we would attempt to take her out with us or even when people would come to visit our home. She was constantly pulling on the leash during walks so hard that she would lift her front legs from the pressure. Harnesses, puppy leashes and gentle leader mussels did nothing to correct her walking behaviors. We couldn’t get her to listen when any type of distractions would arise. We sent her to their three week camp and she came back so well behaved it was unbelievable. Listening under distraction, on and off leash walking, behavior in public or around others is no longer a issue. She even sits in the car patiently. We could never get her to sit calmly in the car previously. I highly recommend this training camp. It is worth the price for the freedom you and your pup will have afterwards to simply enjoy life together. If you give this place a chance your pup will come home obedient and well behaved.
My pup came home today and so impressed. Not just with our boy but with Kristen as well. She took time to not only work with me and my pup. But took the time to show my wife and daughters individually how to work with him, correct him and praise him to reinforce the work she has done with him. Would highly recommend this company and Kristen specifically. Thank you all for the work you put in on Ragnar and look forward to brining him back at 6 months for more in depth training.
Prestige K9 is amazing! We recently had our 1 year old, male German Shepherd (Bentley) board trained and we can not be more pleased with the results! The progress Bentley has made in just over a month is astounding. Before, we couldn't even take him out of the house without being dragged around the neighborhood. After the training, we took him for a walk and he stayed right by our side and obeyed commands even with distractions of other kids, rabbits, and other dogs within the vicinity. Kristen is awesome and very knowledgeable about canines, and we really appreciate everything she did for our dog. Kristen did an awesome job going over the training with us at our home and explaining in great detail what we need to do to continue the training that our Bentley went through. We can not thank Prestige K9 enough for everything. We will definitely be back to board our dogs. We highly recommend Prestige K9 to anyone looking to have a well-trained and obedient pet!
When we adopted a 3 year old German Shepard from the spca, we were so excited. We brought Bella home and that excitement turned into fear. She was aggressive towards our teenage boys, she was a terror to take on walks, she would prefer to be chased out in our yard rather than come inside when called. She also would bark like crazy and I was afraid she would break our front window from trying to get out when dogs and people walked by. I contacted several trainers who said “she can’t be helped” or “take her back”. That is until I spoke to Kristen at Prestige K9. She had faith in Bella. She had encouraging words that Bella could be helped with all of our fears. We signed Bella up and dropped her off after having her only three days. I kept in touch with the trainers throughout Bella’s stay. They sent me pictures and encouraging messages. At the 4 week mark when Bella should be coming home, they asked to keep her an extra week. They did this at no extra charge. We have now had her home over a week, and she is a different dog. Kristen has come to see us again to check in on Bella and how we are doing with her. Prestige K9 is simply put amazing and worth the investment. We could not have kept her if it wasn’t for them. If we ever get another dog it will for sure spend some time at prestige. Thank you again Kristen and all those at Prestige who had a hand in helping Bella.
We are so incredibly thankful for the wonderful job Prestige K9 did with our dog! Luna is a rescue who came with some pretty bad manners which caused a lot of stress in our home. She’s extremely athletic and loves to run... Sadly We could never let her off leash... even in our backyard, because she could clear the fence as if it were non existent and take off. Her house manners were poor... she’d rush the door to get out, and walk across the top of furniture like a goat. (lol) Long story short, we were brought back the dog I dreamed she would be! Luna has house manners, I can just let her out in the yard to potty without having to be on a tie out, actually play fetch in the yard, and we now go on walks OFF LEASH! The trainers are wonderful and you can tell they genuinely cared for our girl! Prestige K9 gets 5 stars all the way! They worked wonders for our girl!!
Prestige K9 is simply awesome. I enrolled my 12 week old puppy into their puppy program and I saw such a huge improvement. He listens so much better and is much more calm. He understands sit, down, come, free, and place. I get compliments all the time on how well behaved he is! I can't wait to send him back for more training in the future! It's always hard to decide what is best for your furbaby but I am so thankful I decided on Prestige K9!
Prestige K9 is simply amazing, from the moment I called and inquired about their program to the moment I picked up my puppy. Marissa does phenomenal work and made such a positive impact on my puppy’s life. Not only that but she also had a one on one training session upon picking him up which helped so much. I would highly recommend bribing any dog here!
Our experience was amazing. The care and training Abby got was great.
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.
We took our 2 month old husky puppy to Mirresa for general behavior training such as potty training, Kennel training, ecall, no jumping, barking, "leave it", etc. Mirresa was very up front about her method of training and answered all of our questions. We provided a list of items we wanted him to work on with our puppy and we talked through all the points. Throughout the training we stayed in contact via texts msg and received video and voice messages from Mirresa everyday.
Since her training our husky is excellent in Kennel and potty training, she rarely barks, and her recall skills have vastly improved. Our dog behavior is much improved and we are very happy with what we gained from the program. Our puppy is happy, healthy and a much better listener.
We highly recommend Miressa and Spencer, If you are looking for safe, trusty and beautiful boarding place make sure to check their place they have beautiful house in New castle with huge yard for dogs to get trained and they are very Professional in dogs training and they only use positive reinforce to train dogs, also they been in this business for a long long time.
Absolutely love them and we will send korra for her off leash training ASA she gets 1 year old.
I'm so grateful I found Prestige K9 when I did! I adopted a HUGE puppy that had not been taught manners, but I could tell wanted to please. I was a bit over whelmed and almost gave up, but when I contacted Spencer he assured me that there was nothing wrong and that my dog could learn to behave. I now have a HUGE puppy that is a pleasure to be around. He is still as goofy as he was before, just with a touch of manners and a ton more control. I can't thank Spencer and Marissa enough! They are my heroes!
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!
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!
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!!
Sent my 4 year old akita to their training camp program and he came back very well trained. Couldn't have been happier with his behavior on returning home. Thanks Prestige K9!
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.
We fostered a female pit mix for about a year who was fearful of new people and situations. We could see what a fantastic dog she was but her "unapproachable- unfriendly" behavior made it difficult for potential adopters to see the real her. After completing Prestige Aggression Training Camp she was confident and could deal with new situations. She improved so much so that a family fell in love with her at her first meeting and she was adopted in less than a week from being back. The extended service to the new family is a huge bonus and we know she will have the kind of life she deserves. I would absolutely recommend Prestige. Thank you so much!
I can't thank Prestige K9 enough for all of their help! I would highly recommend their 4 week obedience camp! My dog had some pretty severe anxiety around people which would often manifest as aggressive behavior. He also struggled with being over-protective, if anyone approached me while we were out walking he would throw a fit. He needed to be locked up anytime anyone came to my house, even close family and friends. I had tried working with multiple trainers that refused to work with him due to his aggression issues. Then my vet recommended Prestige K9 and said this camp will change both of your lives - she was not wrong! Marissa and Liz offered me hope for the first time that my dog could overcome his obstacles and live his best life. They worked with him to build his confidence so he could cope with the situations that stressed him out. They posted pictures and kept me updated on his progress every step of the way. It was honestly incredible to see how much he was changing in such a short time. When he finally came home I was shocked at the transformation. You could see how proud he was of himself every time he nailed a command, he is really enjoying showing off all of his new tricks. My neighbors all used to be terrified of him and now they tell me how well behaved he is and that they wish their dogs could heel like him! He especially loves that he gets to play fetch off lease in the park now! My mom was so impressed (jealous) with how well my dog did that she is sending her two dogs there next month. I'm just so happy to have found Prestige K9 and eternally grateful for the joy they have brought into my dogs life.
Thank you so much Prestige K9 for training my dog and myself! Couldn't be happier with the results from your training camp and the follow up instruction!
We absolutely love Prestige K9. They did an amazing job with our Pomsky! We have already referred them to friends and family and use their boarding services as well! Can't say enough great things.
This place is absolutely amazing!! Highly recommended!! If you need to train or board your dog this is the place to go!!
My dog and I had such a pleasant experience with the trainers at Prestige K9! Thank you for all that you do!
Spencer and Marissa took my unruly two-year old mastiff mix, and made him pleasant to be around.
Because he was so large and snarky, it was hard to find someone to work with him. Prestige was recommended to me by another trainer, and I have never regretted the decision to sign up for their 5-week training camp.
My boy now actually listens, and does what i ask him to do. I couldn't be happier.
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.
The trainers at Prestige K9 have gone above and beyond to work with the dogs in need from our rescue! We are forever grateful for them!
COLORADO CANINE RESCUE
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!
Spencer has done an amazing job of taking our Great Dane, Lambeau and turning him into a well trained dog. Best trainers I've ever worked with!
We've had two pups trained by Prestige K9 and so glad We did. They are experienced and commited to training pups and their owners which is equally important. There was consistent communication with positive reinforcement. We appreciated the follow up for long-term success. Thank you!
Prestige K9 has been a wonderful partner in creating and supporting the Therapy Dog Program at Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, CO. Their training program is wonderful and the dogs and our students are very happy!
My dog Kaiya completed the 5 week training camp mostly because she was very anxious and struggled with everyday tasks. I now have a dog that is very confident in herself. She can actually be a dog now, after completing the training. Follow up sessions are amazing and they help my dog and I build together. Marissa and Spencer are truly amazing people and have sculpted a program that works! I highly recommend Prestige K9 to any dog owner!!
Prestige K9 has done Advanced Training with our mini golden doodle, Lucy. She could jump as high as a kangaroo when greeting people! Spencer and team took her in and trained her for 6 weeks at their facility, and Lucy came home as a new dog!! Spencer is an expert regarding dog behaviors, and working with dogs to make them understand the expectation following training. I would highly recommend Prestige K9 for any dog training that you need!!
We have been taking our dog Dixie to Prestige K9 since she was 16 weeks old. She has completed basic obedience camp, advanced camp, canine good citizen testing and several drop in classes. Spencer and Marissa have done an outstanding job with Dixie and also with training us on how to reinforce what she has been taught. She is only 1 1/2 years old and is already an exceptionally well behaved dog we can take anywhere.
The follow up lessons and drop in's are all part of the exceptional work that Prestige provides. Dixie can't wait to go back for more training.
Prestige K9 has exceeded our expectations with the training of our family dog. We could not be more pleased with the results and overall professionalism of everyone at Prestige K9 and highly recommend them.
Great Place. The staff was very knowledgeable and the results from the board and train were way more than I expected.
Spencer and Marissa did a wonderful job with our 6 month old Goldendoodle. We were going a little crazy with "puppy issues", and thanks to our time with Prestige K9, we are all much happier and relaxed! We get compliments on his behavior every time we are out. Thank you!
We went from a completely unruly 2 year old Lab-Shepherd mix to a very well mannered dog. We could not be happier with Spencer's training.
We rescued Penny several years ago, knowing she had a checkered past. She is almost the perfect family dog, except for some dog aggression. We signed her up for the 5 week, on-site training, with Prestige K9. After the course, she has come home a better pup than when she left. She is still her same lovable and goofy self, but now listens like a champ. I have already recommended PK9 to several friends and will continue to do so. Especially for other Boxer owners out there - PK9 can help! 🙂
I’ve sent my 9 month old German Shepherd dog to the board camp in Seattle. Here is my experience.
Scheduling - this was a bit painful, initial replies are delayed, lots of questions aren’t clearly answered, I’ve had an impression that it can’t be a good sign. I was wrong but I would recommend Prestige K9 to improve here. I believe you are loosing your potential customers due to initial communication issues.
Pick up - this was very smooth. They just came, asked some clarifying questions, pick up my dog. Nothing really to mention.
Waiting - I wasn’t able to see any notion of progress but they explicitly said that they don’t provide such updates. I asked for a picture of my dog once and I got it almost immediately. I also found few more pictures of my dog in their instagram.
Result - to be honest, I am impressed with the results. I have no idea how they did it, but I have got completely changed dog. He used to pull on leash so hard that it was challenging to walk him, my dog was totally unmanageable in many different aspects. What I have now:
1. Whenever I say “Freddy come”, my dog runs towards me and in a moment he sits next to my leg. He doesn’t go anywhere until I release him.
2. I can put him to his place and he simply stays there.
3. Whenever I give him “sit” or “down” command he just go to the desired position and waits for release. I’ve done it in Petco while shopping and he didn’t break his position even with other dogs walking right in front of him. I went to my kids soccer game and Freddy was lying there right in front of running kids and soccer ball. I’ve done in with so many distractions but Freddy was holding his sit or down.
4. He knows “heel” command. With or without leash. I have a lot of rabbits next to my house. Freddy was heeling off leash with rabbits running while he was watching them. He didn’t break “heel”.
In summary I have off leash trained dog. Simple like this. Prestige K9 trainers knows their job very well. Freddy still makes mistakes, but he is living creature and this is expected. He is on the right track.
Value - to be completely honest, it wasn’t cheap. But I strongly believe that it was worth it. Now I can rely on my dog and I can simply enjoy his company.
I wish Prestige K9 all the best and I am pretty sure I will come back to them a bit later for more advance training.
