I highly recommend K9 Connection. Brian has helped me and my dog tremendously. I adopted an adult Malinois mix from the that came with anxiety and fear problems. I couldn't leave him alone as he would bark non stop, additionally pretty much anything would trigger his fear and he would freeze on walks. 2 classes before finishing the program and the dog has made a 180 degree change. I am able to leaving him alone and taking to public places with no issues now.

I would highly recommend Brian of K9 Connection as a dog trainer. I have been working with him for a few months now and have my hands full with two Golden Retriever pups. He is patient, caring, kind and very professional in his approach. My pups respected and responded to him immediately. He is gentle in his coaching and I have learned so much from him and so much more to know. He is always on time and has great communication skills.

Brian brings years of successful training practices to each training session and helps you, the owner, understand the philosophy behind his training methods and how it both relates to and benefits the dog. We noticed an immediate change in the behavior of our "stubborn" German Shepherd puppy (14 month old) as Brian showed us how the dog perceives his owner's place in the pack, which helps shape the dog's behavior and expectations. Our pup always snapped to attention per se when Brian arrived at the house as he new that serious training time and obedience discipline shortly followed therewith. One of the great aspects of Brian's training is his respect for your schedule as he is never tardy, and often early to your sessions. That attention to courtesy is tremendously helpful to those of us with busy schedules. I would highly recommend him to train any dog and enjoy his coaching of not only me as an owner, but the dog as well. Thanks Brian.

My dog is showing a ton of progress with only our third visit, very good.

We’re nowhere near finished with our training but we’re noticing a huge difference in our very stubborn Belgian Malinois. Highly recommended.

I have a sweet but stubborn little Frenchie. Brian corrected his pulling on his leash in the very first visit. He really knows what he is doing and has provided me with valuable tools for success.

Brian helped us greatly with our black lab/German shepherd mix. He was quick to respond if rescheduling was needed and always willing to accommodate. Our dog is still a work in progress, but he is leaps and bounds better walking on a leash and listening to commands than he was when we started our process 6 weeks ago. Thank you, Brian! -Michelle

I definitely recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for a dog trainer. He is very patient with you (because he basically has to train the owner to train the dog), and the hands-on experience has been very effective. While online training is helpful, it doesn’t show you what you’re doing wrong. Brian is kind and consistent - and he gets results. I noticed a drastic improvement in my pup Hazel’s behavior - immediately!

Brian showed exceptional care with our pups. Truly, we could not have asked for a better trainer! From the first lesson on, Brian was patient, kind, and so effective that from the get-go we noticed a drastic improvement in our dogs' behaviors/temperaments (one of whom, as a rescue, had previously displayed aggressive tendencies). For six weeks, we received some of the best training money can buy -- and we could not be happier with the results! There isn't a doubt in my mind that if you're in the area and looking for a proper trainer, Brian is your man!
