I’ve never met Tara in person but each time we spoke on the phone she was wonderful. I have a hyper 7 month old Great Dane and we just needed to learn some structure. I’m the one who really needed the training, Pepper made it look easy. We worked directly with John. We did 4 sessions. 2 at our home, one at Home Depot and one at a dog park. He helped us feel confident and comfortable with Pepper. He was very knowledgeable about how dogs think and react during training, and always made sure we understood our part in the training and what to expect from our pup when we reinforce training between sessions and after. With only 4 amazing sessions, our 9 year old can now walk our 70 pound Great Dane unassisted and without her dragging him around the neighborhood. We can’t sing the praises of this training enough.Julia MillerNovember 27, 2022
A++ experience! I searched several places to train my fur baby and I chose All Around k9 Training. I drove almost 3 hours but it was all worth it. They took excellent care of Darla. They helped me build an awesome relationship with my dog. The overall experience is stunning. The facility is clean and very well maintain. They actually care about bettering the relationship , people have with their pets. Thank you Gary and Tara! I highly recommend them!💕😃ImeldaApril 17, 2023
Wow is what comes to mind when talking about All Around K9 Training. Our goal for Radar was to make him a therapy dog for me to use when counseling school children. In efforts to make that happen, we put our dog through a board and train with another company who had lots of ads on the Internet. To make a long story short, we were very disappointed when the trainer called and told us that our dog would not be a good candidate for a therapy dog. She recommended that we look for another dog to train. Prior to going to that company, our dog was very comfortable around all animals on and off the leash. Unfortunately, when we got him back, he was leash aggressive and wanted to attack people and animals. We were so disappointed. We quickly found out that the trainer they assigned to our dog had just graduated from high school. We felt totally let down. One night while working at the Children's Bereavement Center, a lady shows up with her therapy dog that was so well behaved. After talking to her, I found out that Tara and her husband Gary from All Around K9 Training, trained her dog. She told me that her dog, after only two weeks, came back as a totally different dog. She recommended that I contact them and explain what had happened to our dog with his training. I contacted All Around K9 Training and scheduled a consultation with Tara and Gary. Within 5 minutes, we knew Tara and Gary were highly experienced trainers. They began to pull dogs out of their kennel and evaluated how our dog reacted to their dogs. They immediately saw what the problem was and began using corrections to address the issues. Within just a few minutes, they had our dog feeling comfortable and confident around their dogs. They spent close to 2 hours with us even though we had not hired them yet. We were extremely impressed with them and knew this was the company we would use. We stopped looking at the point. Within a couple of weeks, Tara called and told us that she had a cancellation and wanted to know if we were ready to begin Radar's training. We dropped off Radar and within one week, Tara schedules a meeting with us. This meeting was not only to see Radar's progress but it was to train us. They will make sure that everything they do, you do at home. Again, we spent about 2 hours going through training. This did not stop there. We must have had at least 3 meetings with them before getting our dog back. When we did get Radar back, we could not believe the transformation. He was a totally different dog. He listened to every command, was always on point, he ignored, dogs ducks, people, traffic noises, cars, and other people calling him. His primary focus was on the person training him. We are so excited with the change and are now excited to take him everywhere we go. You should see the people's reaction when they see how well he behaves all around San Antonio. Oh, and the message we received about him not being a good candidate as a therapy dog, well look at the photo and you tell me if that is the case. Our kids and staff at my school love Radar. He brings so much joy to everyone he meets which could never have been possible without All Around K9 Training. Don't make the same mistake we did and just go with anyone. Schedule your consultation and talk to Gary and Tara first. After you meet with them, you will see that no one else will even come close to what they do. These trainers are truly miracle workers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!!! Roland Cornejoroland cornejoApril 9, 2022
They did wonders with our girl Marlow! They knew exactly what she needed and were so patient and sweet with her. Absolutely recommend!Allison CortinasDecember 18, 2022
All Around K9 trained both our dogs and us also, to be better dog parents. It the best way to have all-around happy and cooperative relationships...stress free, perfectly executed, with gentle firmness. We are amazed at the calmness and peace we all have now. I wish all loving pet parents could have the same awesome experience. I recommend checking out these professionals for guidance and help before having difficulties or incidents. AND, they offer monthly maintenance walks to help with developmental stages, reinforcements or other needs as they may arise. This is exceptional trainer-care and lots of fun too.Jayne BradleyFebruary 12, 2023
If I could give 6 stars to All Around K9, I would. My sweet rescue dog Winnie had a lot of fear-based reactivity to other people and dogs. She's only 13 lbs but has a lot of personality. She allegedly came from a hoarding situation, so it makes sense that she doesn't understand how to act outside, around other dogs, on a leash, etc. I couldn't leave my house without her barking aggressively (as aggressive as an Italian Greyhound mix can be) and lunging at people/dogs. Other dogs would be very far away, up to 40-50 feet and she would have the same reaction. I live in a busy apartment complex with a lot of foot traffic and other dogs, so the elevator was out of the question. I would have to walk her up and down 10 flights of stairs and walk 2 blocks away to go to the bathroom, which isn't sustainable all the time. She also started whining and scratching pretty hard at me to be picked up as soon as she finished going to the bathroom because she was so scared outside. She would weave in-between my legs on walks and constantly need reassurance. I tried doing my own training after reading blogs/websites for about 3-4 weeks, but she made very little improvement. I felt like I was at my wits end trying to train her to tolerate other dogs because it was impossible to do anything with her outside my house. I love my pup and wanted to be able to do things with her (or even just take her on a simple walk). I opted for the 2-week board and train, and Gary and Tara were SO wonderful. I have no hesitation giving them a glowing review! I will constantly recommend them to my friends with dogs with behavioral issues. They use a system based on building confidence, exposure, socialization, and other techniques to help your pup work through their unwanted behaviors. When I saw how much improvement Winnie made, I was shocked. I didn't think it was possible based on how she acted before the training. She was like a completely different dog, and most importantly I see how comfortable and relaxed she is around other dogs, new environments, and new people. I will still need to give corrections and continue to train her at home, but this will be the case for all training. She listens to all voice commands like sit, stay, down, heel, place, kennel, and others. I can actually take her on long walks, hikes, to restrauants, bars, etc. and I couldn't be happier. Gary and Tara's training set the foundation with time, dedication, experience, and knowledge of training dogs that I didn't have. I also learned a LOT about how to best work through unwanted behavior that helps Winnie feel better and more confident. If you are looking for dog trainers with expertise, kindness, and dedication, look no further. The reviews from other customers are true: these guys are truly the best of the best in San Antonio. I got regular updates about my baby and although they are used to working with bigger dogs, I felt very comfortable with how they handled my fragile pup as well. Couldn't be happier with my experience from start to finish 🙂Megan DeRisoApril 2, 2023
Just 3 weeks after adopting my 4 year old dog, Martin, from the humane society; I wanted to make sure not only myself as a first time dog owner, but Martin, was trained appropriately. I bought a package of training sessions to see how we both did. I learned so much from Gary and Tara, from things like proper leashes, collars, crating, traveling with dogs, food, to teaching Martin basic commands and handling. Martin was a quick learner and he did so well. I have nothing but awesome things to say about All Around K9 Training and my experience. One of the biggest reasons (aside from the positive reviews I read) I chose All Around K9 Training, was they don’t exclusively list that they use one type of training tool, like all of the other K9 training cites in San Antonio that I looked into. They assess your dog as an individual and make a game plan specifically for him/her. I loved the individuality of the training and care provided.Jennifer LaknerJanuary 10, 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
I have a 1 year old Yorkie who has a very stubborn attitude but after taking him to All Around K9 training. He is a different dog. He is obedient, and follows all our commands that were taught to him. Tara was great with him and I felt they cared for him as their own, already setting up boarding for my travel days in February. I highly recommend.Monica SanfordJanuary 28, 2023
Tara and Gary did a phenomenal job training our rescue. In four weeks we went from struggling to to thriving and now we are walking our dog off leash. They changed the game for us. I highly recommend AAK9 for your dogs training needs.Charles HumphreyAugust 10, 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
I highly recommend and strongly suggest using All Around K9 if you’re looking for the best trainers in San Antonio. Tara was beyond amazing and I cannot thank her enough for training my Australian Shepherd. So the story behind my Aussie, she was a rescue and when we adopted her we knew we were in for a wild ride. However the first night she attacked my older dog and we quickly realized we had zero control as it was tough separating her from him. We tried to do our best with training and offer as much support but we were at our wit’s end. After countless times of trying to restrain her from fighting with my older dog and fighting us to restrain her from doing anything she wasn’t supposed to do, we decided to search for a local trainer. We made the commitment to saving our girl and we decided to invest in finding the most highly recommended trainer in town. We had a friend Laura Mason share her experience and after doing more research I decided to take her in for a consultation. This was probably the best decision I ever made in my life. Just in the short period of time I saw a difference and we decided to do the 2 week board and train. My husband and I came by during that period do some training as well with her. Took home notes and studied the commands we learned. We picked up Roxy while meeting Tara at Lowes and did some more training inside the store. My little rescue was a changed girl. Things have been so wonderful now! She is so playful with my Max and doesn’t hurt him. Most importantly she doesn’t fight with him or us anymore. She’s such a sweetheart. We have kept doing our homework with her and it seems like she’s getting better everyday. She now listens to our commands and is behaving extremely well. My Roxy is living her best life now with so much love and attention. We truly love her so much and now can’t imagine life without her. We owe all of this to Tara. Her expertise, skill set and patience changed and improved my rescue’s life. We will use her for any future pets and will be forever grateful to her and the whole All Around K9 trainers. Looking forward to the maintenance walks and group trainings. -Caroline and Michael ContrerasCaroline ContrerasMarch 22, 2022
The ppl/staff/owners at All Around K9 Training did a great job on Echo our Boxer. 1st he was a scared timid guy (non aggresive) and just a hyper little guy. Now he is all wiggle butts and not afraid as much whilw meeting ppl pr going to new places. To bad cant teach on how not to drool lol. . (Edited) had to give 5 stars which i never do . Lol this app needs to add 6 stars cause after 5 can never go higher lol 100000% trust and support these guysThe Freak210October 6, 2022
Absolutely worth every penny. Gary and Tara did a great job with my boy Niko. We are very pleased with how his training went. We have a 3 year old American Bully and we recently had a baby. He has always been a good dog but lacked structure, which is our fault. We did the 2 week board and train and it was fantastic. We did lesson at their property and every session we could see Nikos improvements. I would highly recommend All Around K9 Training to anyone. Especially if you have a powerhouse breed like we do. The end result is a happy home life with our pups and new baby, and we made good friends in the process. If I could give it 10 stars I would. I’m looking forward to sending our Aussie puppy to them next. Once again, worth every penny.Stuart BrownMarch 5, 2023
For Christmas I adopted two puppies from the shelter for my kids. As a first time dog owner I was excited to have two new fur babies. That excitement quickly turned into fear as I learned I had adopted Belgian Malinois. After calling around to different dog trainers and being told, “oh no you should take them back to the shelter, no one would blame you”. I was loaded with fear and felt like I made the worst decision. My last call was to All Around K9 Training. I spoke with Gary who took his time to educate me about Belgian Mals and his extensive K9 training inside and outside of the military. I felt sooooo much better after speaking with Gary. Immediately set up training sessions for each pup, Tara was very informative and worked with my budget for each dog to go through one week of boarding on the leash training. I never had to worry about my fur babies being gone because I knew they were in good hands. My kids and I looked forward to receiving daily text updates on their progress with pictures and videos. Jason and Josh trained both my puppies and they did an amazing job, not only with the dogs but with people training. My kids and I would visit for a mid week checkin to make sure we were comfortable with the commands and how to properly correct behavior. Even after training ended I was never alone. Gary and his team call to checkin, and were ready to help with anything I needed. I highly, highly recommend All Around K9 Training!!!Tawana LeakFebruary 11, 2023
Extremely happy with my experience with All Around k9. Gary and Tara are amazing trainers, they go above and beyond.Daniela SanciprianAugust 12, 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
Great place !!! Trainers are knowledgeable and Professional, my pup had some unwanted behaviors, 2 weeks with All Around corrected those plus added some manners! . I Highly recommend! Thank you , so glad I trusted my dog to y’all!Jessica FarmerAugust 13, 2022
Great people. They did an awesome jobNathan BernalAugust 12, 2022
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
We took our 6 month old blue heeler, and after the two weeks, Daisy was outstanding! Tara, Gary, and Morgan all did an amazing job with training Daisy. Definitely take your puppy to them if you need training done!Megan PenaJanuary 11, 2022
Amazing results! Dropped off our one year old German Shepard mix for their two week program. Gary did an excellent job keeping us in the loop and updating us on his progress. You can tell he really loves dogs. I highly recommend doing a training session after the first week and not just a long one after the two weeks. We are from Corpus so we were hesitant to come do a lesson after the first week, but so glad we made the extra trip. It is a lot of information to take in, but Gary did a great job explaining the commands and made sure we were comfortable before heading back home. Highly recommend them for any type of training your dog may need.Austin JonesJanuary 22, 2022
Thank you Tara and Gary at All Around K9 Training, we are grateful for giving the attention and training our 5 year old Rottweiler "Khahleesi" needed. We recommend this facility due to the kindness and professionalism we encountered, we have more confidence in the two week Boarding/Training Khaleesi received, she's benefited more from these trainers. Much success you two!!Juanita HernandezJanuary 13, 2023
Finding All Around K9 Training was the best thing I ever did. Before I found them, walking my two dogs was like a dreaded task. Phoenix seemed to be dog aggressive and Pharoh was so terrified of everything I couldn’t get him to go anywhere. Tara’s training showed me that Phoenix has a lot of excitement and was unsure how to act around other dogs. And desensitizing Pharoh became a huge part of our training. I was given all the necessary tools and training to help me see my dogs excel. With Tara’s help, I am now able to take both my dogs on leisurely walks/adventures. Even after my dogs completed their training, any questions I may have they are always eager to help!Kayla LeeDecember 8, 2022
Phenomenal experience! Extremely professional and superior knowledge not only in training and handling but with behavioral issues and gear as well.Highly recommend, great customer service, k9 adored.LaurieAnn BorgerMay 9, 2023
This place was amazing. My dog is so much better and listens. The best part is they gave me all the tools to be a better dog owner!Jaime GallardoFebruary 28, 2023
3 things. 1. If you’re looking for a trainer - stop. This is who you need to contact. I knew in the beginning of our assessment that All Around K9 would be the perfect fit for me and my bub. 2. BEYOND qualified and caring. I learned so much about dogs AND myself during our time together. There was a minute that didn’t align to an objective and there was genuine care from start to finish. 3. YOU will have work to do. Although you can drop your K9 off, I feel it is imperative that YOU get as much hands on training with AAK9 as possible. You can have the most well trained dog in the world, but if you don’t know how to control it, you doing it a disservice.Kristin Marie DMarch 27, 2022
It’s only been a few days since Gary and Tara came over to help us address a few dogs that have gotten out of hand. They gave us the tools we needed to see a difference with the promise that if we followed through we would see a difference. It has been 2 days and I already see a GIANT difference. They know what they are doing, and putting in the work seems to make a difference.Becky SmithMarch 14, 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
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
Tara did an amazing job with my puppies Pebbles and Bam Bam!!! They were just four months old when they went to AAK9 for two weeks of boarding and training. Tara sent us several video updates to see their progress and called us to let us know how they were doing. I missed them so much when they were gone, but it was totally worth it!!! My tiny babies came home smart, patient, grown up and THEY LISTEN TO ME!!!! I am so glad we sent them at a young age. Everything they needed to learn about how to be a “good dog” they learned from Tara and her team. We have never had any behavioral problems with our pups thanks to Tara! Pebbles and Bam Bam get so excited to see Tara, Bea and Gary every time we attend the group sessions! They love them like family♥️ Highly recommend AAK9!!Monika PriorMarch 23, 2022
We can’t recommend Gary and Tara enough. They did an outstanding job with our puppy and it has made such a difference. They always make time to answer our questions and work with us on behavior and habits at home. They truly love what they do and they are exceptional at it. They are worth every penny and we definitely recommend them.Leena LaugerJune 30, 2022
We are beyond pleased with All Around K9 Training. We felt like we were where we were supposed to be. From the initial consultation to Gunners last training, we got more than I could have imagined. Gunner absolutely loved his training time with Gary. Gunner’s confidence has improved tremendously. He is such a well behaved and obedient dog. A million “Thank you’s” to Gary and Tara. I look forward to continuing to be involved with All Around K9 Training.Dina EspinozaFebruary 21, 2023
We are beyond grateful for all the hard work and attention that Jason put into our Betty. We dropped off a rambunctious, 8 month old puppy and picked up a well mannered obedient puppy. She is no longer herding her sister “shit zue” into her crate, no more jumping or pulling on a leash. She will stay in place when in public, so I can shop and check out. She also comes when we call her and has amazing door manners, which is huge bc I was worried every-time the door opened. We highly recommend every dog owner invest in their dogs future.Heather WoodsFebruary 11, 2023
Great experience with Gary and All Around K9. I was originally hesitant to use a balanced training approach to my super sensitive pup. But Gary was wonderful in his approach and mannerisms and helped make my 120 lb Wolfhound much more enjoyable to walk while giving me the confidence to overcome my anxiety and interact correctly with my dog.Brandi StagerFebruary 24, 2022
Wow! I’m so thoroughly impressed by the training my girl, Indie, received when we dropped her off with Tara and Gary for the 2 week board and train program. While Indie was a sweetheart, she was extremely reactive and anxious while on walks. The Indie I got back was so much more secure in her self and no longer reactive! She follows every command like a pro and I feel like such a better dog mom now that she’s no longer scared of everything that walks by. Tara and Gary really took the time to teach my husband and I the proper way to continue with her training and made sure we understood and did right by Indie. I can’t recommend them enough. Having gone through a different board and train program for my other dog, Tara and Gary are god-sent. If you want trainers who really take the time to not only teach your dog but you as the owner, please go with them. AAK9 training is very much worth the investment and your pup will thank you for it.Lyanni GuzmanJanuary 6, 2022
I’ve never met Tara in person but each time we spoke on the phone she was wonderful. I have a hyper 7 month old Great Dane and we just needed to learn some structure. I’m the one who really needed the training, Pepper made it look easy. We worked directly with John. We did 4 sessions. 2 at our home, one at Home Depot and one at a dog park. He helped us feel confident and comfortable with Pepper. He was very knowledgeable about how dogs think and react during training, and always made sure we understood our part in the training and what to expect from our pup when we reinforce training between sessions and after. With only 4 amazing sessions, our 9 year old can now walk our 70 pound Great Dane unassisted and without her dragging him around the neighborhood. We can’t sing the praises of this training enough. pdannywashere2dayDecember 21, 2022
My pup, Milo, recently went through the 2 week board and train. I could not have asked for a better experience. It was evident they handled him with love and care. Milo did not have any major behavior issues, but I wanted him to be well trained, have great recall, heel, and handle high distractions with confidence. All Around K9 Training exceeded my expectations! Not only did they train Milo exceedingly well. They helped every member of my family be successful in understanding how to continue the training. Their facility was very clean. I felt very comfortable with my dog in their possession. They kept in constant communication with myself and other family members. They even shared videos and pictures along the way. Most importantly, Tara & Gary were thorough, honest, and genuinely cared for Milo. Because of them, he is a total ROCKSTAR! He's obedient, full of confidence, and displays the best dog manners ever! Thanks, Tara & Gary!delana kellerDecember 20, 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 so grateful all the work Gary, Jason, and the team put in. I didn’t know what to expect with a week of puppy training. During the classes and since getting Chloe back I’m blown away. She is still the fun loving puppy, but quickly obeys commands and is more confident! Jason and Gary kept great communication throughout the training and included pictures and videos. Answered any questions we came up with, and even did a half way good job of training my wife and I. All Around K9 Training is a serious outfit that works hard and does it the right way.Chris poteatApril 9, 2023
AAK9 training is the best. They have worked miracles with our dog. She was unfocused, anxious, and generally agitated before. After working with Tara and Gary (especially leaving her with them for a one week "boot camp"), she has completely changed. Now she is focused, listens to commands, and is generally calm. She seems happier, and my wife and I are also enjoying our relationship with her much more. Can't speak highly enough about AAK9 - highly recommended.James ByrneApril 22, 2022
My 60 pound Standard Aussie Shepherd had no respect. Two week board and train was more than I ever expected. Not only was I apart of the training, but I left with the education I needed and lifelong guidance from professionals that know what they’re talking about. I felt supported throughout the entire experience and still get asked for updates from Tara and her amazing team, (my trainer) Eva. Thanks to Tara, Eva and the team at All Around K9 Training, I came home with a dog that was 100% changed for the better. The two week board and train not only made me a more responsible dog owner, but greatly improved my relationship with my dog, Jet. I now have the tools to move forward with a working line breed. I can not recommend All Around K9 Training enough. I will be continuing to work with Tara and Eva for as long as possible! I can’t say enough good things about my trainer Eva! Eva and Tara have been so patient with me blowing up their phones with my incessant questions and concerns. Jet and I have so much more to learn and I can’t wait to continue working with these amazingly accomplished professionals.Tania Haj AliMarch 7, 2023
I took my crazy pup Lucky to Tara & Gary and got back a completely different dog! I don’t know what they did with him, but he is so well behaved. The dog that never listened is now on point! My neighbor who recommended them came over with her kids yesterday & thinks Lucky is a new dog. She was SOOO impressed! I cannot give higher praises. I recommend them 1000%Danielle StackhouseFebruary 22, 2022
Many thanks to All Around K9 Training for helping us take our good boy Beau’s obedience to the next level! He’s a great dog that had become fear-reactive around other dogs after being attacked at a dog park and then under-socialized. But after completing a training program here and teaching me how to improve my handling skills, he’s been around even dozens of dogs with no issues. I can take him anywhere now! Thank you for helping us work through and overcome Beau’s fears, so he can live his best life!Angelica WedellMarch 4, 2023
Brought my girl friends Basset hound and my Labrador. They trained my lab from day 1 and he is amazing, super obedient and ready to be off leash. My gfs basset had lots of problems and anxiety, he is now very confident and ready to take on the world. I drove 12 hours for these guys and I would do it again in a heart beat.Jaime GallardoFebruary 24, 2023
My husband and I absolutely LOVE All Around K9 Training. We initially did the 2-week board & train back in 2020 for our two fur babies (Bullseye & Franki). During the 2-week timeframe, we were sent numerous pictures and videos, which helped us see their progress. Since then, we have boarded our dogs numerous times when we go on vacations and participated in many of the monthly maintenance walks. There is no question that Tara and Gary adore our fur babies and we know they are in great hands when we do board them. I truly cannot say enough about them and how well they have worked with our dogs.Salene BampiMay 15, 2023
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
This place has the best training! We brought our very unruly dog to them and now we have a very obedient dog who I can walk without worrying about her jumping all over people or running away from me. Would highly recommend!!!Mary Beth BjerkenJune 30, 2022
I highly recommend All Around K9 training. Last year I adopted my five-month-old puppy, Evie. It quickly became apparent that the quiet, little pup I saw in the shelter was actually a high-energy, destructive, wild child, intent on teething on me and anything else she could sink her puppy teeth into. I needed help... bad. After one conversation with Tara, I knew she was the one to help us. She explained her training methods and philosophy, and I felt really comfortable with her knowledge and genuine love for animals. I opted to do private lessons where Tara trained us, (yes, I had to learn the basics as much as Evie). But it was more than just learning how to give sit, and stay commands, Tara taught me how to understand and communicate with my dog. In addition to private lessons, I have taken advantage of the monthly Maintenance Walks (group meet-ups) that they offer. I really appreciate this option for ongoing support to work on training issues that may arise. I also use their boarding services frequently, which I really love because I know Evie is well cared for, and her training is reinforced each time she is there. Now at a year old, Evie is a socialized, obedient pup, who gets constant compliments on how well-behaved she is. I can’t say enough about Tara, Gary, and the rest of the staff; working with them was the best decision I could have made.Georganne HernandezFebruary 1, 2023
