Keith & Jess

I sent my dog to two board and train sessions at 2 weeks each, once at 6 months and another at 9 months of age. The trainings were the on leash and off leash packages and I can say with confidence my dog came home knowing exactly what she was doing and I am very pleased with the results. Marc was the trainer and we received regular video/photo updates while our dog was away (yes, this is hard on the family to send the dog away) but at the end of both sessions where was no impact to her personality nor any other negative consequences of sending her away for so long. Instead, she came back from training number 1 with a series of versatile and useful commands which is PLENTY to use in lots of situations. There's really no confusion between the dog and I, she knows what we're saying 100%. The second session was the off leash training and though it has only been about 2 weeks since we got her back, she will walk at my side at my pace, I can let her roam around if I want and then call her back to my side, I can set her down and she'll stay there until called - it's been pretty awesome. Overall I recommend both trainings and the company itself, plus once you're part of the 203K9 family there are additional perks you learn about as you go. Really pleased with what we paid for and will continue to be a happy customer.

Jessica and Van -Niko

My husband and I knew we wanted our 8-month old pitbull puppy (at the time) Niko to be well trained and well behaved especially when in public settings. We did the 1-month board and train program and I highly recommend it. Steven was truly amazing with our pitbull Niko and understanding his needs as an extremely high energy, highly driven dog. During the 1-month program, both my husband and I would go weekly for private lessons to also “be trained” on how to handle Niko properly in a variety of settings and situations. We would do lessons where I would be working with Niko one-on-one while my husband sat to the side and vice versa, as well as, doing sessions where we would work with Niko together. Even at over a year old, Niko is very well behaved in a variety of public settings, doesn’t pull during walks and is able to be off leash in large outdoor areas while following his basic commands. Steven was readily available during his transition period home and even to this day, months after his program, to do a follow up session. I also have done a number of group classes to gain confidence and to become more comfortable walking Niko alongside other dogs and in public places without getting anxious. It is still “a work in progress”, but Steven has been very patient with me and clear on what to do and what not to do with Niko. I could go on, but we could not be happier with the dog Niko has become and it was all thanks to Steven and his 203k9 team! We cannot thank them enough!

Tyler and Samantha

We put our dog, Sayler, through a 2 week boarding program consisting of confidence boosting and on-leash training. Before the training with 203K9, she was very scared of almost everything (dogs, humans, the trash can at the street corner, etc.). After the training, she was a completely different dog. She listened almost on every command, walked right next to us and was unfazed with other dogs and people. She even let other people and dogs come up to her. Her transformation is absolutely incredible, and we can with 100% certainty vouch for 203K9! If your dog has any kind of issue, I’m sure they can fix it, and at an affordable price! Thank you to Steve and his crew for their hardwork and dedication to making our Sayler better all around. We will continue training with 203K9 in the future without question.
