As a "new dog mom" I had a lot of questions — Kevin's training and guidance at any time was invaluable. He deeply understands dogs and their development and knew exactly what to do in various situations. People tell me how well trained Fiesta is for her age; it’s due to our Puppy 101 training with Kevin! ~ Dorsy Y.

The individual training was expensive, but I think that it was worth every nickel. We had gone to other trainers with very limited results. However, just one session with Brian seemed to have a dramatic impact. Bella knew him, liked him, and reacted well to his brand of firm yet benevolent discipline. Walking around the neighborhood, she was almost a different dog within 2-3 weeks. The best money we’ve ever spent.
