We got a lovely Aussiedoodle in December 2021. We had lost our pup of 15 years and had many months of sadness and a very quiet house. We were so excited to bring Archie home. The first few months were very stressful. He had a ton of energy and despite puppy classes, books read, Utube videos and a lot of time things were only getting worse. We searched out ITrainK9 and sent our pup for the 4 weeks of lodge and train. We had hopes for sure but were also not sure how effective things would be when we got home. The team was fantastic. Steve put us at ease right off the bat. We picked Archie up 1 month later and although we had to learn and continue to be strict when we got home the relief was huge. Archie is a new dog.. there is no other way to say it. We have been home for about 5 months and he has been wonderful. He is still a puppy at 1 year but so easy to walk, no jumping, follows commands and because of that we have a much stronger connection with him. For those considering the program and are hesitant.. don’t be you will be wonderfully surprised and impressed. Now the house is happy and we are loving us some Archie! Thank you team…
My 11month old Ella just returned from the 2 week training program with iTrainK9 and all I can say is wow! What a difference in her behavior and mannerism. She is a different puppy. She walks so well, I take her without having my arm pulled off. Other dogs pass and she just trots along like they are not even there. Family and friends greet her without being jumped on. She doesn't bark at every person and dog that passes the house. Her ability to stay on "place" is amazing. ALL of the staff there are friendly, skilled and knowledgable. Their love for dogs and their well being is quite obvious. I am so thrilled with the results.
thank you so much
I have taken my lab there 3 times, each time I go away, and I have a well behaved, friendly dog. People are always impressed at how she behaves especially off leash. The staff is so friendly and always happy to answer any questions. I will be taking her back soon for boarding.
We have a GSD named koda.
She was enrolled in the 2 week intensive program as recommended based off of conversations with a trainer about goals and issues with our current situation.
I could not be happier with the progress and constant support from the team at Itraink9!
They make constant use of the resources they have created to inform and build confidence in us as owners so we can reflect that back to our dogs.
The come home lesson was super helpful and they really made sure we could understand the cues our dog was sending us that we may have missed before.
They will be the first to tell you that the work is not done once your dog comes home. We have received awesome written lessons with attached video lessons so you know you are doing the exercises accurately.
We are heading into week 4 of her being home alone and she has made so much progress we couldn't be more proud of her and her growth.
You should absolutely consider itraink9 whether you have a young puppy or an adult that you'd just like to see some improvement in. It is a huge weight lifted off our shoulders now that we are structured and knowledgeable in our training.
Absolutely love this training facility! My dog Bentley was 7 months old when I sent him and it’s been 8 months since he came home, things couldn’t be better! He did their general obedience course and it really taught him how to respond and act in certain situations. As well as all the basic commands plus walking in a heel! Genuinely can’t stop talking about this place to friends and family. Anytime someone meets him they’re blown away by his amazing behaviour especially for his age.
I brought Luna in to work on leash aggression, impulse control, and overall boundaries and obedience. She and I have had a bunch of difficult times around her triggers of other dogs, things that move fast or startle her and she’s super strong so I was struggling. When she completed her 2 weeks at iTrainK9 she was so much more calm, clear and knowing what she needed to be doing - which in turn helped me feel confident and clear with what I needed to do to support her! The team was so great and made sure we felt confident with our new training program and tips before we went home. Since she’s been back, she’s been so much better and easier to manage. She’s also much more chill inside, doesn’t bark at things as much and we are both feeling way more at ease and connected in a healthy way! I’m now having fun with my dog again! So grateful!
It's been almost 8 weeks since we brought our 7 month old Aussiedoodle, Arlo, for the 2 week board & train program. What. A. Difference!
Leaving your puppy can be stressful- I can say, without a doubt- this was the best thing we did for Arlo!
We enjoyed the updates along the way and when we picked him up, we were very impressed! Very obedient, no longer jumps up on family members and overall- excellent behaviour and still the same loving, playful puppy. Love the online training & community as well. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thank you!!
So extremely happy with the services. Our dog was on his last chance due to unpredictable behaviour, aggression, barking and total lack of knowing how to just be a dog. We got back an obedient, quiet, happier dog who everyone loves being around. Thank you team for saving his life for us!
We were nervous to send our four year old husky Mishka away for a month but it was well worth it. Mishka was high energy and wasn't interested in listening to us. Training was like a 180 with listening and general calmness. She's also much better behaved off-leash with recall even though off-leash wasn't part of her training program. The team clearly knows what they are doing, good job!
