Frances is a life saver!!! I adopted a 1 year old German shepherd from a lady I did not know. I knew getting a puppy especially a German shepherd was going to be some work. What I did not know is that I would need A LOT of help. When I thought I was going to get a regular dog trainer I was wrong. I got service that changed everything! Within a day I saw a difference in my dog. She helped with walking, his obedience level, and able to have him be great with my two-year-old daughter. She always follows through on appointments text messages or calls. She doesn’t wait until appointments to reach out, she will stay involved any day. Not only does she help with your dogs, but she gives you a full reason why a dog acts the way that a dog does. She is honest and does not sugarcoat anything which is what I needed and loved the most. My dog is a whole different dog compared to when I first brought him home. There were a few times I wanted to give up but she completely changed everything. The price is definitely 100% worth every single penny. Your dog will not just get trained to sit but your dog and yourself will learn so much more than just an average training. I do not regret reaching out at all I absolutely love them. - Brittany D., El Paso, Tx

Evan took great care and caution with my rescue. Assisted me in becoming a better dog owner and gave me the tips needed to teach an old dog new tricks. Literally. So grateful for the opportunity. Thanks to him I'm able to have and show a whole new level of love to cockadoodles. - Briana V., Long Beach, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We had the best experience with KPro K9! Our dog was a rescue, at 1 & 1/2 years old, so we did not know what to expect. Nate was able to customize a training plan specifically for our dog. Nate was available via phone for questions or concerns between sessions. It was the best experience we could have asked for. I wish we had more training sessions left in our package! I would use Kpro K9 again if we ever need them in the future. - Hannah T., Yulee, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Cassie is absolutely the best trainer I have ever expected for my dog! We have 8 sessions left of the elite package and I cannot wait to see what all we can accomplish with my Vizsla - Kayla S., St Marys, Ga

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Working with Gino exceeded any and all expectations I had for a dog training course. He presents information clearly and in a way that empowers you as the owner. He makes dog psychology accessible to anyone using human analogies that are just as funny as they are informative. Gino will provide you with all of the tools you need to be successful - follow his lead and you will see immediate results. Completing this course has improved my relationship with my dog and my dog's quality of life. He is a much more confident animal that can now handle excursions to markets, breweries, or stores!! It is easy to see just how much love Gino has for the animals, their handlers, and this profession. If you are on the fence about dog training, this is your guy. I could not recommend him more highly!! - Kaylee P., Jacksonville, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We had waited until he was 18 months old to seek out any obedience training for our Sealyham Terrier, so he had already developed some bad behaviors that needed correction. Nate, our local area trainer from K-PRO K9, was very careful to inquire about what behaviors were a problem for us and to customize a training program to correct them as well as teach basic obedience. We ended up going with a package of 2-week boarding "boot camp" with boarding in Nate's own personal home, followed by 8 follow-up weeks of 1-hour personal training in our home or occasionally at a rendezvous public spot. The biggest breakthrough was midway through the follow-up sessions, when Nate - at no extra charge - provided us with an electronic remote dog pager; and gave us many tips on how to use this device to reinforce our obedience commands and overcome our dog's most stubborn bad behaviors. It worked! - Stephen H., Fernandina Beach, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

My Australian Shepherd just finished his training with Guy. I can't express how much I appreciated all the work Guy did with this little pistol, but he worked miracles. I highly recommend KPro K9 and Guy for any of your furry babies. - Cheryl D., Ponte Vedra, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We worked with Kevin and I am thoroughly pleased with the progress both of us(me and my dog Marco) have made with this training. Kevin is patient and informative and placed us in real world training environments at home and at local businesses. We are looking forward to training with Kevin more as we progress to intermediate and advanced lessons. - Beverly G., Diamondhead, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

KPro-K9 is a MUST for anybody with a dog. Doesn’t matter if it’s a new puppy or full grown dog, the training you will receive makes your life easier and your puppy happier! Kevin began training my Belgian Malinois puppy at 14 weeks old and I was able to take him out in public places controlled by the time he was 17 weeks old. He is now 6 months old and responds to commands almost immediately in all environments and also off-leash. Cannot recommend Kevin enough! Also, if you ever need to board your dog for any reason he is the go to! My dog got plenty of attention and play time while I was out of town for a week and took no steps back in his training! Schedule today and you will not regret it!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Can’t say enough about how happy we have been with KProK9 services! Kevin has been working with us for months and has made a night and day difference for our two dogs. He was extremely flexible to help us schedule follow-up sessions around our hectic home life with three kids, one of which a newborn. We have a third dog who will only be receiving training from this group of fine folks! - Peter N., Diamondhead, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

KPRO K9 and trainer Cassie helped out with both of our dogs so much! Just after 8 sessions she helped our dogs transform. She also helped us be a lot better dog owners by teaching us how to connect and advocate for our dogs. I highly recommend Cassie and KPRO K9 to help you and your pup! - Madisyn W., Kingsland, Ga

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Kevin’s training has changed our lives! Not only were the sessions very informative with tons of practice but we were put in real life situations that helped boost our confidence in our dog! We are so grateful we had the chance to work with him and we are excited to continue the training on our own. - Claudia I., Long Beach, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Couldn't be happier with the results we got with our dog. Will be hiring again to go even further. Highly recommend KproK9! - Brian B., Fernandina Beach, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We are so pleased with the training our Westies Molly (18 months old) and Pippa (8 months old) received at KPRO K9. Thanks to Nate and his training methods they are well on their way to becoming exemplary canine citizens. Nate also trained/educated us. We needed that training as much as our pups did, if not more! Nate is kind, a gentleman and an extremely knowledgeable trainer. Molly and Pippa adored him. Nate held training sessions in a variety of venues in order to socialize and familiarize our pups with various types of daily encounters. We were fortunate to find this level of training so close to home (Amelia Island Fl.) and look forward to working with Nate in the future for intermediate training for Molly, Pippa and us. Thanks again, Nate and KPRO K9. - Nadine, Ed, Molly and Pippa, Fernandina Beach, Fl

We are beyond grateful for our Trainer Guy Smith who learned of Remmy’s dire situation and intervened providing a safe place for her. Guy’s professionals expertise combined with pure gentleness helped Remmy move from a complete state of franticness to calmness while she was in his care during her two weeks of Boot Camp. Guy is also working with our Lab mix and through Guy’s expertise our Wally is making tremendous progress in leash walking as well as a state of calmness when out in Public. Guy is very timely in answering questions that come up and giving his professional expertise in problem solving. In meeting Guy we recognized immediately his gentleness in how he handled Remmy and Wally. In fact, Guy & his brother Gino came today to pickup Remmy as she will spend the next week socializing with her new brother Wally. Remmy saw Guy & Gino and immediately began wagging her tail and ran to them. Remmy completed Boot Camp Jan 3 and returned home to us where we continued to implement the training techniques. At first it seemed overwhelming. However, Guy’s patience in repeating & demonstrating the techniques as well as timely response to questions eased any anxiety or inadequacies I felt. Remmy & Wally through Guy’s expertise and gentleness are well on their way to being happier pawkids. We as pawparents are learning the skills to help them meet their potential. We consider Guy & Gino Family. We will be forever grateful for the difference they are making in our pawkids lives. No doubt our Pack will be calmer and happier because of Guy🐾❤️🐾 - N Tarant, Green Cove, Fl

Gino worked with my “fur-nephew”, Simba, a Boerboel mastiff who is just a little over 1yr old. Just a few months before, my kids (a set of 5yr old triplets and a 2yr old) were terrified of him because he was in puppy mode - super energetic, jumping on them and barking at them. They didn’t know how to interact with him even though they wanted to and Simba didn’t know how to stay calm around them so they can pet him. Enter Gino to the rescue. In just 2 short weeks he turned Simba into an obedient, calm and sweet dog! We could hardly believe that it was the same dog. The kids would run around him and he’d gently lay down watching them play. He calmly walks without a leash, listening and watching for commands, disregarding any distractions around him. More importantly, the kids and Simba now have a mutual respect and they can safely play together. Thank you so much, Gino, for training both Simba and my kids how to play together! - Oana K, St. Augustine, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

We worked with Frances with both of our dogs, Smoke and Dash. Smoke is a highly reactive Australian shepherd who did NOT get along with Dash, our highly anxious Jack Russell. The two week board and train with Frances gave Smoke the foundation he needed to be better trained on a leash and more obedient to us. We then continued to work with Frances for Dash to decrease his anxiety and slowly have them integrate back with each other. Smoke and Dash have made so much progress, separately and individually, and we have so much hope for the future because of the tips, lessons, and tricks Frances has taught us. We are so grateful! - Orooj H, Gulfport, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Nate has been phenomenal with our German Shepherd. We are almost done with the behavior modification training program, and she has done a complete 180 from the time she started. Nate has been extremely patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. His love for dogs and for dog training is obvious from the beginning, and he’s truly dedicated to setting you and your dog up for success for the rest of your dog’s life. KPRO K9 will without a doubt be our go-to training company for future training needs, and we would definitely recommend them to anyone! - John and Sarah F, Yulee, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Oh my goodness! We are so unbelievably grateful for this experience with Kpro K 9 we can’t say enough good things about our trainer Nate! He was so responsive, kind, patient not only with our sweet pup but also with helping my husband and I learn how to be better dog parents! He was so professional and an expert at what he does. Our dog adores him which speaks volumes to us. She came back a calmer more confident dog and biting stopped. He was so great to work with! The whole experience was worth every penny! You won’t regret going with this business and ask for Nate! He’s gonna help you bring out the best in your dog! - Serenity R, Jacksonville, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Cassie Kozerski is great! I gave her on job to do with my dog and she got it done! My dog Bubba has been semi trained to do the basics, sit, down, stay but he would not come when called!! It has gotten to the point that our frustration level was too much and decided to call in a specialist! Cassie took our stubborn boy and return a different dog! He has learned and on his way to mastering coming when called! He has settled down and even though he walked good on a lead, he is even better now! Thank you so much for your time and effort with Bubba! Your patience with him and training are remarkable! Thank you Cassie. - Art S, Yulee, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Evan and KPro K9 genuinely changed the lives of both me and my dog. I came to him with my recent rescue that had been previously neglected and had serious fear and reactivity issues. I had several coast dog trainers tell me that he wasn't "salvageable" or that I should rehome him because it wasn't a case they could handle. I never thought that I'd be able to take him anywhere, but working through KPro's Behavior Mod package has allowed my dog (and me) the chance for more freedom and a better life together. This is easily one of the best decisions I've ever made and could not recommend them more. -Morgan, B, Gulfport, Ms

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Where do I even begin? Do I start by saying both my dog AND I are completely different than from the beginning of training? Do I begin with the fact that I was a crying mess when I first met Gino, with significant fear of walking my dog…and NOW, I feel comfortable walking him around Riverside Arts Market, surrounded by other dogs, and so many other places? All of that is true - and then some! Gino (and Halo + friends) have been amazing! He’s been kind, patient and very encouraging, as I struggled to figure out if I would even keep my dog after we were charged/attacked. Meeting and training with Gino has been one of the best investments I’ve made. And it meant that I kept my dog! Gino has been there every step of the way, even when we’re doing our homework assignments between lessons. We wouldn’t be here without Gino and crew! With guidance and direction from Gino, I’ve gone from fear + hysterics to comfort, swag and a joy of walking my dog. My dog and I have learned to “pack walk”, control impulses and connect like never before. While you can’t control the uncontrollable (or stupid pet owners), Gino has equipped my dog and me with the needed skills to enjoy our walks, all while being safe and alert. Graduating this round of training isn’t the end for us and Gino. We look forward to learning more with Gino, in the near future. I highly recommend Gino and K-PRO9!!! -Katy S., Jacksonville, Fl

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

Our 7 month old Aussiedoodle, Bogey, spent two weeks with Nate and Cassie for the Board and Train, Basic Obedience.  We are so impressed!  The three follow-up sessions in our home quickly taught us how to effectively communicate the commands and how to continue the training Nate and Cassie had already established.  I also loved that our puppy still came back very much himself, just much better behaved! It was amazing (and reassuring!) to see how happy Bogey was to see Nate each and every time for the follow-up – it was clear our puppy adores him, and we are forever grateful.  If you are considering obedience training in the Jacksonville area, I highly recommend Nate and Cassie with KProK9! You guys are awesome!  Thank you, again.-Missy B., Fernandina  Beach, Fl

"Gino is the absolute best! My dog absolutely loves him and he is so patient and goes over and above to make sure we understand! It’s amazing how much my “Covid puppy” has learned!"  -Allison P, DVM, Jacksonville, Fl 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

"Absolutely adore Evans training. He came in when we needed him the most and we have absolutely obedient dogs now and I could not be more happier. So down to earth, truly gets to the root of the issue, and works with passion until it’s fixed. Did I mention he worked with all three of my pit mixes?? That’s a handful and he did excellent with every one of them. Thank you Evan and Heather for all of your help and it has truly made a life long difference for our dogs."  -Aubrey R, Yulee, Fl

I have a 7 month Doberman and relocated to Jacksonville from Georgia. In Georgia we lived on 3 acres of land and downsized to a 2 bedroom apt. I had received several complaints about my baby Sevyn. When I lived in Georgia we had invisible fence which the system worked amazingly. All I knew in my mind was that I wasn’t getting rid of my baby. I called and spoke with Heather she was amazing at doing the intake part and also making sure that all the details were given. My trainer Gino was amazing as well. Once Gino picked my baby up I received updates daily on her progress. What really made me comfortable was a line of communication was always available. Once Sevyn was home she wasn’t the same dog. Gino went over the steps with me and gave me pointers. I was amazed at the progress. I understand my dog is still a puppy but she was very energized on a daily basis. She has made such a huge change and I am happy about the results. I highly recommend K Pro K9 for all of your training needs. The prices was also great to compared to the other places I checked out.  -Sheneka A, Jacksonville, Fl 

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

K-Pro K9 has several trainers. But, we used Evan and he is effective and professional. We have a high-drive working puppy and Evan creatively worked with our pup and us to get basic obedience and a couple of problem behaviors under control. Our dog is still a work in progress but we do not feel all alone in handling his training and problems that may arise. Evan is "TheMan"!!! -Robert J, St. Mary's, Ga 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

"Words cannot describe how amazing this place is for dog training. They managed to take our previously untrainable dog and delivered on their word. They might be a bit pricey but it is 100% worth every penny. They promised certain results and made good on their word and would not settle for anything less than delivering good on their promise."  -Alan G, Yulee, Fl

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

"When we came to Evan with our 11-year-old lab mix we were at a complete loss. Life with our dog had become a burden. The concept of leisurely walks was no longer part of our lives. The pulling and loss of control on the leash were our reality. Also mixed in was a growing level of anxiety in our girl. It was a nightmare for all of us. 

Now after a series of sessions with Evan we feel like we have a whole new outlook. The change is absolutely amazing. It is like walking a totally different dog. And we feel like we’ve been set free. Free to go out and enjoy the world with our dog. 

What I appreciated the most is that Evan took time with us. To talk and find out about our lives and how we operated as a family. He used those talks to help us set realistic expectations for our life with our dog. He showed us the things we needed to change in our interactions with her to help implement more confidence and security in her and us. 

Evan is professional and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend the services of K-Pro K9!"  -Amanda L, Jacksonville, Fl 

 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 

"Evan has been working with our fur baby to become not only a well behaved puppy, but to do very important tasks. The training is exceptional and the results are amazing. Evan truly loves his job and loves every furry client that comes to see him. He truly cares about the success of your K9. Thank you Evan, K Pro K9!"  -Lisa R, Jacksonville , Fl

"Everyone that wants a companion dog, service dog, shadow, nurse, care giver, comforter best are what described my dog when I got her back. She's all I think about throughout my day. I'm a disabled combat veteran and with Kpro K9 as my trainer I got my life back."  -Robin H, Yulee, Fl
