Thank you for taking on our wild child. Thank you for all the update videos of Raven, we really missed our girl. After watching all the videos of her I'm beginning to understand your passion for training dogs. We can't believe this is the same dog, we gave you a wild child and now she’s calm in the house and no longer needs to be locked up when people come over. You're brilliant! She still loves to chase the rabbits at the cabin but now she comes back when I call her.
Thank you so much for taking the time to train our stubborn Dogo Argentino, Bowser! After running away numerous times, not listening to a single thing we said, and even biting someone, I thought he was truly untrainable. After only six private lessons with you, he has become a completely different dog. I can take him on walks and he walks right by me instead of dragging me around, he comes when called, and he doesn't dart out of the house anymore. The best part is that we can take him to public places and he can be trusted around people again. I don't know how you do it, but you sure have a way with dogs! Thank you for helping us train our Bowser to be the dog we knew he could be!
Apollo is amazing. Jordyn and he are best friends. He is so versatile that he can go from full Malinois to service dog. He goes to doc appts, shopping mall, restaurants and even the zoo. He knows when he’s in public he’s working. He understands how to place himself to comfort and calm my grandson Fred who has PTSD. He makes transitions and even dentist appts easier for him. He has an extremely solid foundation nothing bothers or affects him. He is wonderfully trained everyone that meets him loves him! He knows the difference in being at home (where he will alert bark when someone comes in) to being very polite and obedient when he’s working in public. He wears a chameleon collar but it’s never on, he obeys his commands all the time without correction. He has a strong recall and is only on leash when it is required otherwise he is free. He is as loyal as they come and is diligent in keeping “his people” in sight. He is amazing but, he’s still a high energy Mal so my daughter takes him to an open field twice a day to run off his energy playing ball - they play until he finally comes and lays down. They also bought a dog treadmill like the one you have for winter when he can’t run outside. We can’t thank you enough for all the training you did with Apollo, he's the perfect addition to the family.
Thanks for being my coach! Your ability to share your knowledge on building engagement and drive with my dogs has made a positive impact on their performance at agility trials. Every time I work with you, I feel that my relationship with my dogs is strengthened by your ability to observe us and determine what they really need from me. Your insight when evaluating puppies is invaluable to me when matching puppies to their performance homes as well as choosing my own puppy. I have attended many of your training seminars as well as private lessons and I always come away with new approaches to train my dogs, you have a special way of bringing out the best in dogs and everyone you work with. Training opportunities with you is always an enjoyable experience for me and my dogs. Thanks again for sharing your decades of experience!
My 3 year old Bullmastiff was a hard headed male with a good demeanor but terrible at listening. I reached out at the end of my rope. Jim with Foundation K9 saved me. I inquired online and was surprised within 12 hours received a call about my inquiry. I immediately took Moomba for an assessment. After the assessment I had confidence that they would be able to help me was and we started immediately. I was stunned from day 1 we immediately saw results. Within 2 weeks I had a different dog. I can’t stress enough the communication; training and overall experience with Foundation K9 was amazing. Pricing was great as well. I will never own another dog that does not go through training via Foundation K9.
It is a pleasure to write a testimonial for you so that prospective clients can receive helpful feedback on your training and the personal protection dogs you provide. I searched across the North east in my quest to find a protection dog AS WELL as a family dog. We wanted to have a well-trained, protection dog but equally important to us was a dog that would fit well into our family that included our two young active boys. Our boys and their friends are very active, it is not uncommon for them to engage in make believe battle games ranging from pirates brandishing swords and soccer games in the yard so at the back of our minds was always the question of whether a protection dog would be able to distinguish these play attacks from the real thing. Our search led us back to you our old friend in Indiana. We knew that you always trained quality dogs but New Jersey and Northwest Indiana are quite a distance to travel to see if a dog was going to be a good fit for our family. You were generous enough to drive Unko out to us and stay for the weekend to see if he would be a good fit in our family. From the moment we saw Unko we knew he was the right dog he just took to us right away, his training and instincts were incredible. We spent the day together and the boys played fetch and soccer with him all afternoon. He slept next to our bed that night and every night since. He is so much a part of the family now we would be lost without him around. Everywhere where we go Unko goes too, always alert and well behaved. Best investment we made and I can’t say enough good things about the gift you gave our family.
