While it is no doubt important to work on your dog’s confidence, we have found that it is just as essential to work on the other end of the leash. You, as a handler, play an integral part in your dog’s success. While dogs are incredibly intelligent and intuitive, they still require regular maintenance and reinforcement of commands. This is why one of our primary goals is to spend the extra time with you teaching you how to work with your dog.
Dogs are just as varied as people when it comes to personality! A one size fits all approach doesn’t work when it comes to behavioral modification. We strive to show you how to interpret your dog’s needs and how to meet them successfully. For instance, if one of your complaints is that your dog excessively barks, it is first necessary to determine the root cause of that barking. In some dogs, the reason is excitement, while in others, it is a symptom of fear. By dealing with the underlying issue, we can help alleviate the barking!
We had an amazing experience putting our 1 year old goldendoodle through basic obedience training. Before the training Archie was super anxious and he really struggled when he was left alone. After the first training sessions Archie was completely different. Tara not only taught Archie but she also taught me and gave me all the tools to continue Archie’s excellent new behavior. Archie is now very calm and manageable. Tara and Gary are knowledgeable and great with dogs. This was an amazing experienceMariajose OrozcoNovember 16, 2022
Tara and Gary from All Around K9 Training are absolutely amazing! They helped me with my dog’s social anxiety and fear based aggression. Not only did they train my dog, they trained me on how to set myself up for success with my dog’s environmental behavior. 10/10 recommend anyone with a dog- whatever the trainings needs might be, small or big, to go to All Around K9 Training! Not only am I excited for my dog’s growth, but so are they🥰Hannah HaleyNovember 7, 2022
Gary was absolutely amazing with our dog Truman. He is extremely firm yet patient and it is obvious how much he really loves and understands dogs. We had issues with Truman pulling when walking and jumping on his "friends". With the instructions Gary taught us we were able to take Truman everywhere with no worries. We always loved Truman, but with Gary's help now we like him all the time too! Highly recommend!!Trish HawrylukOctober 28, 2022

My 1 1/2 year old Minnie schnauzer had some anxiety and serious social issues. Before the training I was not able to walk him or take him out in public. After the training we’ve been able to walk in a public store, hang out with family all with no issues. Tara and Gary did an awesome job and are very informative in the training processBrandon BenitezSeptember 12, 2022
My dog Luna (2 yr old German Shepherd) just spent 2 weeks at All Around K9 Training and let me tell you she’s a whole different dog!! Luna was very anxious and fear aggressive, she was trained as a puppy and because “life” happened, I didn’t stay consistent. She was aggressive towards cats, my parents dogs, and would bark and growl at anyone who got too close to her. The last straw for me was a snapping incident with my daughter and another small child. It was a hard decision to send my baby for 2 weeks but i got daily pictures and updates!! With the help of Eva, Gary, and Tara, Luna is now able to be around other people, as well as other dogs. It’s still a work in progress but she has improved so much in just 2 weeks. We are excited to be able to take her along with us to family events as well as sporting events. I cannot thank All Around K9 Training enough for all the hard work they did with my Luna! ❤️Esmi GauthierSeptember 2, 2022
Gary and Tara trained Gus, our 7-1/2 month old Lab puppy for us. He was quite a handful when we took him in and he came home such a gentleman. They are excellent trainers who care about their work and love it, along with a friendly and knowledgeable support staff… Gus has been trained to succeed! Thank you guys so very much!!Diana PhersonAugust 21, 2022
We had a amazing experience putting our 1 year old Australian Shepherd Koda through the 2 week boarding program. Before the program he was a VERY anxious/aggressive toward other dogs and unknown people. Whenever we would try to take him for a walk he pull, nip, and bark uncontrollably. Overall, we were very concerned about his behavior in the long run. Tara and Gary sent us updates on Koda with pictures and information on how he was doing. When he came back from training he was a MUCH better behaved pup. He listens much better and is exceptionally better with dogs and people. We were also given proper instruction on how to follow the training. This includes the proper amount of exercise he needs, how to correct him, instruction on the use of basic commands, ecollar, and most importantly to be patient as it is a learning process. Tara and Gary were very kind and answered all of our questions even after the training. We are very grateful for all the hard work they did with our pup and I’m sure he is too!Emily SegoviaAugust 17, 2022
We are very much impressed with the changes in our dog! We sent in a very active dog that was constantly jumping on and nipping at the children. Our dog came back completely well trained and easy to manage following the training guidelines given to us. Tara and Gary made sure we understood what we needed to do to continue/ maintain the training, as well as what to expect from our dog. We learned to give our active dog tasks, which helped his over all behavior. Now the entire family has an enjoyable time playing and training with our dog; the kids especially love the chance to play with the dog without scratches! We highly recommend All around K9 training!Bridget De AndaAugust 12, 2022
Excellent dog training at All-Around K-9!! Not only was my Pip a changed dog, Tara spent time with me, the owner, longer and more thoroughly than any other dog trainer I’ve ever employed. 5 stars!Susan SmithAugust 12, 2022
