Laura and her team are absolutely amazing! Our golden struggled a lot with fear and we were at a loss on how to help her. Laura and her team worked with us to modify Daisy’s training in puppy class and in our home. We even took an additional class with Laura to help our Daisy be more confident. The difference is night and day now. I don’t know where we’d be if not for K9 Turbo Training. Highly recommend them!" -Nicole

The K9 Turbo Training team is extremely dedicated, knowledgeable and professional. From the very first point of contact, to follow-up way down the road, they treat you as a valued member of their "family". The trainers and other staff take great care of you, and love the dogs like their own! I have learned so much about using positive reinforcement with my dog who has significant needs. Her behavior and confidence have improved dramatically. Most of all, her quality of life has been continuously improving since our very first session four years ago! That progress is limitless if you're willing to use the knowledge and skills K9TT teaches and inspires their clients to use.

I have worked with K9 Turbo Training for 3 years now and can't say enough good things about them. I have taken my own dog there for reactivity towards other dogs. He has improved tremendously and all using force-free, humane, science based methods. Understanding why my dog is fearful and reactive to other dogs, rather than using punishment or corrections when he barks at dogs has allowed my dog to trust me and to be more confident and comfortable. I am a veterinarian and highly recommend the entire K9 Turbo Training team to my clients who have any behavior problems with their dogs. Not only are they extremely professional, but also have excellent customer service and everyone I send to them is treated like family

My husband and I found K9 turbo through the recommendation of our veterinarian. We signed up for in home training for our 2 year old German Shepherd who was struggling with anxiety and fear of strangers. Laura was a dream to work with. She really took her time, made sure we were all comfortable at all times, explained things so well to us from a scientific standpoint and a down to earth way. Harti has come such a long way with his training and we absolutely adore Laura and all her hard work and dedication. We ended our training in home on such a positive note that we couldn’t stay away for long! We are now signed up for group classes and will continue with Harti in classes once a year at least. I would highly recommend K9Turbo to anyone.

I found k9TT through word of mouth within my community. I set off looking for a science-based , force free trainer who could help me learn more about training my dog and understanding their behavior. K9TT came overwhelmingly recommended . They’re so passionate and generous and we’ve learned so much. I was a first time dog owner and I over enthusiastically brought home an insane puppy of high drive breeds. Taking a force free training approach has empowered my overstimulated working dog to communicate more effectively with us, learn to settle down, become social and confident around people and dogs and our cat, focus more during training , walk loosely on his leash , feel more relaxed at the vet and has done absolute wonders for his overall impulse control. I get comments all the time on how well behaved he is for his age and I tell them every time force free training and K9TT. I know my dog and how sensitive he is to everything around him and I’m confident that had I chosen aversive or punishment based training he would be the antagonist to the confident boy he is today. We’ve taken obedience training in a class setting, distraction training in public parks, vet training in a veterinary office and trained with several different trainers and they all align seamlessly. We love that the training immediately applies to real life scenarios and how patient and thorough the trainers are with the handlers so we can all walk away feeling successful.

You guys are basically gurus. I tell everyone how awesome you are. I've only had the pleasure of meeting Kate and Fransisco but I have received endless support from Katelin and Ashley has been great with communicating/working around my weird schedule to book training. After our first initial meeting, I knew Kate would be the last trainer I'd ever need(which means she can't ever retire because I will need her for my future neurotic dogs). That's saying a lot considering I've already gone through three. I thought I was destined to be hopping from trainer to trainer to sort out my boy's issues. We've only had 4 sessions with Kate and the change I see in my boys quirks and fears is huge. We're working on everything from his fear of dogs to learning to pull a cart for fun. I love that I can send video clips and any questions to any of these ladies and they're happy to help. Not only does my boy love our lessons, but I look forward to them. The amount of knowledge packed into one lesson is crazy. I feel like I'm in an episode of Nat Geo visiting Kate, Fransisco and the farm. Love that place and so does Lazlo! This is such an awesome team of people who genuinely care and know what they're doing. I will not recommend anyone else from here on out. Love you guys!!
