This place is amazing! We brought our 4 Month old Lab Otis for a 3 week training...they are miracle workers. He's so well behaved and listens! !! I brought him home for the weekend during his training and when I brought him back he was actually happy to be going back! If you're thinking about Delmarva K9 for your dog, just do it! You will not regret it. You'll be happy you did it, and so will your dog! Thank you so much Delmarva K9! More...

Everyone at Delmarva K9 is professional and truly love their jobs and their clients. They get it and understand that our dogs are family, just as theirs are. We can finally go away and relax and know our boys are safe. One of our pups is also a graduate from Delmarva K9 and is doing very well will his skills he learned in a 3 week in house training class. Words cant express our gratitude and our trust we have in JC, Heather and their entire team. Thank you! More...

My husky Rogue LOVES coming here. I know that she's in great hands with people who love her as much as we do whenever we go away. It's a huge weight off my mind to know my pup is happy and safe. More...
Love how this crew treat my girl Sydney. She's a rescue who's got a lame leg and they're just amazing with her.
Delmarva K9 LLC is trustworthy, caring and has reasonable rates. I know when we board our dogs they are in great care and that allows us to enjoy our vacations. Thank you for the exceptional service you provide! More...

Great place to board your dogs! People are awesome and really care about your pets, this was our first time boarding with them and we will definitely be back!
great to work with, continued communication, my dog was amazingly happy when he came home.
We dropped our dog Charlotte off and she received e-collar training. The staff took fantastic care of her and she still has her goofy, carefree personality. She used to be very difficult to control in and outside of the house, and now she's much easier to control and much better behaved. We highly recommend Delmarva K9- fair rates and exceptional care and training. More...

They have been SO attentive and kind. My Weimaraner is making steady progress in his training! I have the highest expectation for success ! The place is clean and the “vibe” is calm & secure.... very nice More...
Professional, wonderful, and knowledgeable trainers! We were desperate to get our ill-behaved OES some manners as we had a new baby in the house and frequent visitors, in addition to a super busy lifestyle that we wanted her to be included in; walks, car rides, trail running, etc. However, due to her bad behavior - jumping - even on my 92 year old grandma, pulling on the leash, water and food aggression - she was actually being excluded. (A vicious cycle, we know!) Thanks to JC and his amazing team we now are proud to say we have the PERFECT family pet and she’s definitely my daughter’s (and my!) best friend. Love Delmarva K9! More...
Very professional place they really care and love your dogs. They train your dogs very well. Even if you have to board your loving pet They take care of them like it’s there own. l would recommend them if you need training or even if you are going away for weekends for your pet to be boarded there. More...
Great group of people, love all the dogs coming in whether it’s for boarding or training. We just adopted a dog from JC. She was given the basic training and is spot on. I would recommend them to everyone. Thanks guys, Maggie is loving the farm and her new family More...

Great place! Very professional, knowledgeable and love your dog as if they were their pet. Very clean facility, friendly staff members/trainers and owner and you can visit your pet any time while they are there. Definitely recommend!! Thanks Delmarva K9 LLC!! More...
Excellent service and training
One year ago yesterday, we made one of the best decisions of our lives and sent our 2 German Shepherds to Delmarva K9. Although our pups passed puppy class and were certified K9 Good Citizens, their behaviors certainly did not demonstrate that. I could not walk them nor did we want to have people over as the dogs were undisciplined. Duke and Duchess spent 3 weeks with JC and were loved as if they were his dogs. When we brought them home, the difference was astounding! They sat, healed, downed, came when called on command. To this day, they continue to be great dogs that are disciplined. I thanked God yesterday, the anniversary of their going to training, when we were walking and a large group of kids wanted to greet the dogs. They sat and stayed while the children greeted them. No way would this have happened last year at this time! I 100% recommend Delmarva K9. More...
Took our 1 year old lab to Delmarva K-9 for on leash training. Before training she would run wild throughout our house, tearing up anything in sight. She has the sweetest personality but needed boundaries. We picked her up today and I am in my home office doing some work while she is laying peacefully and calmly on her bed asleep. This never happened before her training. Her sweet personality is still the same, and now we can all enjoy her to the fullest. Thank you so much Delmarva K-9, Gracie and our family have benefitted tremendously from your training! More...
They are wonderful with my baby GREAT staff All make you feel like family and willing to spend time with anxious parents
Hands down the best dog trainers and people in the business.
It’s been one week since we picked up our Remi. We were very skeptical at how well this training would work considering he was always a handful in every aspect and terrible on a leash walking. It is unbelievable the improvements that they made with him! We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and progress. He is still the same silly puppy we dropped off but is able to control his hyper emotions and anxiety now. He listens to commands and most important to us, is now enjoyable to walk. We HIGHLY recommend Delmarva K9 to anyone who needs help with training their pup and wanting to enjoy their company. More...
Great job, very easygoing, beautiful establishment.
Rex visited last year when we spent our yearly one week visit to OC where pets are not welcome. We were very pleased with Rex's care and we are looking forward to this years visit in August JC and the crew do wonderful job
We wouldn’t leave our “special case” with anyone else! Thank you for taking such great care of Luca!
I cannot say enough good things about Delmarva K9!!!!! I dropped my “babies” off for the on leash training course and ended up boarding one extra week. Fist and foremost they have accommodated my schedule and needs every time, even when it wasn’t super convenient. The staff has always been so friendly, calm, polite, and will go above and beyond to make my dogs and myself feel so comfortable. When it was pick up time I have to say I was overwhelmed!! I couldn’t believe how much work they had done and how well my dogs were behaving! My dogs were rowdy and pulled when they walked, didn’t come when called, didn’t sit, ect before I had dropped them off. When I picked them up, their demeanor had completely changed!! They now have full knowledge of their commands, and more than that they seem so happy to have their structure!!!! I’m completely blown away by the amount of training they were able to accomplish! I absolutely recommend Delmarva k9 for any boarding and training needs anyone has, nowhere else will your animal and you get the amazing treatment that this staff has provided, I’m forever grateful for what they have done for my fur babies!!!! Thanks so much you guys you have no idea how much you have impacted their quality of life!! More...

Just picked up our dog Harley from Delmarva K9 on Friday. When we dropped her off. The best way to describe her was wild. Horrible walking on a leash (she broke my finger in December) did not want to listen, was a nightmare to have around our kids bc she constantly jumped and weighs more then both kids together . We signed her up for the on leash training and I have to say I was a bit unsure of how the 3 weeks would go, I hoped she would walk better on a leash but never expected her to better behaved altogether. She is a completely different dog now that I can allow her to be around our kids without worrying about one of them getting hurt. She listens even off leash and is doing phenomenal here at home. Thank you so much for everything and allowing us to enjoy life with Harley. We will be back soon! More...
Just got Buddy back from his 21 day training. It’s amazing how much calmer he is and how he follows commands! Most amazing is how he walks without pulling and no more jumping! Totally recommend!
Dustin Lorraine Knepper
100 stars..we had the most stubborn, spoiled furbaby planted me on my face yanking me off my feet if she saw a squireel cat. .leaf while trying to just walk her...picked her up after three weeks today (needed the break have tendinitis in thumb because of her past pulling)......she walked beside me passed a cat and did not look at the creature...birds...squirrels nope nada...knows hand signals just a COMPLETELY well mannered dog will still have to instill the training and they said she will test us in the first few days of getting home...tried to jump on kitchen counter...nope that did not workout for her...laid down on a hammock style bed that she would have nothing to do with...well they used one for time out she went straight to it and is now sleeping.......and she will be boarded there when we go for a few days jaunt...ALL the staff can not say enough!!! Thank you JC and Heather..and trainers....just in awe!!! More...
Delmarva K9 is the bomb! I can't say enough wonderful things about JC, Heather and the staff here. I sent my 2yo rescue Shih Tzu there for obedience training. I live on a busy road and very close to a public park. My dog loves children and I worried everyday that he would run out the door and across the street to see them. Also, he would never listen and walking him in the park was not a fun experience as he would stop at every post, barrel, and pick up anything he could. I decided on off-leash training as my children and I also wanted to take him camping and to beach without having to worry about his safety. My only thought after having him back for nearly a month - WOW! I can walk my dog in the public park off leash and he stays right by my side the entire time. I can can tell him to stay and he stays right in that spot even though we walk 50 yards away. I feel so much better about my dog's safety now! The long term relationship between myself and my dog has been greatly improved thru this training! Another great thing about the staff is that they truly care about your dog. My dog loves to go back and visit everyone. Thank you, Delmarva K9! More...
We boarded our Chocolate Lab with JC and his staff. They took wonderful care of him! I recommend to everyone!
For the last 11 years, our girl has never been left with anyone but close family. The last 2 times we had to go away we had her stay with Delmarva K9 and we couldn't be happier. She seemed very comfortable from the first time we dropped her off and was just as happy as could be when we picked her up. It's like her own mini vacation when she goes there. We can travel knowing she is safe, comfortable, and getting excellent care. The whole process of booking, dropping off, picking up, and everything in between is so easy. They are very accomidating and are quick to respond with any questions. We are so grateful for all of the amazing staff and all that they do. More...
JC is a great trainer and great person! JC puts his heart and soul in his work and it shows! Whether he’s working a family pet or a police K9 to protect the streets of the community, JC takes both equally as seriously! His facility is beautiful with friendly staff which makes this a great place to board your pets while out of town or handle a dog you own with some behavior issues for training. Highly recommend!! A++ More...
Thank you for teaching Winston good manners. He is still a puppy but does not jump on everyone or pull you down when walking. The difference in his behavior is amazing. 10 stars and thanks to JC and staff� More...
I decided to send my 11 month GSD here for the 3 week on leash training when a family friend recommended it. At first I was really nervous to send him away because he is my baby lol. Jax is already 92 lbs and pulled me around EVERYWHERE. I had no control over him when I walked him. He would jump on guests and only listen to commands when he felt like it. Throughout his stay I was able to visit him multiple times, I got to walk him, play with him, and the trainers kept me updated on his progress and taught me what I needed to know as the owner/ parent to maintain his progress at home. Whenever I texted them any questions they responded in a timely manner. I’ve had him back for only 2 days now and I have had absolutely zero problems with him! Including NO MORE PULLING which is my favorite part lol. It is like a Christmas miracle lol. I am glad I chose Delmarva K9 to send my boy to. It is definitely worth the money and I would recommend this place to anyone! More...
Let me just say that Delmarva K-9 is amazing! JC and his staff worked miracles on my two babies. The process of dropping them off and leaving them for 3 weeks was sooooo hard for me. I missed them and home just didn't feel right without them BUT it was well worth it. JC was so patient with my constant texts checking up on my babies. My 2 yr old black lab left me as a complete out of control hot mess and came home a complete gentleman. My 4 yr old chocolate pulled me so much while walking that I hated walking him. Now he walks like a complete gentleman. For those of you on the fence about whether or not to send your dogs to Delmarva K9 for training, my advice....do it you won't regret it. My boys came home as the same dogs they have always been only now they have manners. We always had to put them outside or lock them in a room when we had company because they would jump and mouth our company. The day after we came home we had a family dinner and my 75 yr old Dad was able to walk in the house and right past the boys without be jumped on or mouthed. I could have cried. Thank you JC and your staff for everything. We will forever be grateful for your hard work. The Braniecki's More...
Jc Richardson is an amazing trainer. He did wonder with my colt. I highly recommend Delmarva K9. They treat you like family.
You guys are AWESOME !!!! VERY professional and reliable even for those with hard headed stubborn dogs like our Lucifer. .. I.E. JC had to come to our house to work with Luci to clarify to him that what happened at 'puppy boot camp' also is to be followed at home. Lucifer saw JC then heard his voice and was like 'awww man he knows where I live!' LOL !!!! THANK YOU GUYS AGAIN !!!! More...
Thank you, JC and Heather (and staff) for your help with training and taming our rambunctious dog Miles. He is doing well following his 3 weeks "summer camp" (that's where we told him he was going). I was worried he would be homesick during that period, that is until we visited and saw not only how well behaved he was but that he loved you guys. I recommend your services highly. Thanks again for everything! More...
JC and his family are amazing! Bella has been training and boarding there since she was 11 weeks old. They treat your dog like it is their dog and the training is absolutely the best!
Donna Foskey Foxwell
Thank you Heather and JC for taking such great care of our girl, Izzy. Your new kennel is very spacious and clean and she made herself right at home! The peace of mind we have when traveling, knowing that she is in such great hands, is something that can't be found anywhere else. We appreciate your care and dedication to our furry family member! More...
Awsome trainer. Just picked our dog up today from a 3 week course and we can already see a difference. I highly recommend Delmarva K9.
I'm very glad we found Delmarva K9 ! Very nice and friendly owners , clean and spacious facilities . Home away from home for our furbabies ! Very capable of taking care of even the most spoiled pets �(like ours)...We'll definitely be back ! Thank you JC and Heather . More...
I highly recommend. If you're looking for a kennel that you can trust to take good care of your dog, Delmarva K9 is it!

This was nearly the hardest decision I ever had to make. Sending my boy (the first thing to call my own) away for three weeks of intense training. Before Arlo left, he had dragged me to the ground so many times I was AFRAID to walk my own dog independently. Upon his return, he is infinitely calmer, collected, and more sure of himself- in turn giving me the confidence I need to confidently walk and control him. Throughout the process, JC and his team updated me on his status with pictures and messages, making a seemingly difficult transition easy and reassuring for me being without my boy. I am beyond excited for his behavior change now, and the hard work JC and his team put into my dog. I would HIGHLY recommend them for boarding and training, and Arlo can't wait to go back to visit and vacation! More...
Delmarva K9 LLC is highly recommended both for boarding, training obedience and protection as well as police training. Jc Richardson is an excellent trainer that is down to earth and his heart is in what he does. Thanks Jc for all you do for our canines and for sharing your knowledge! More...
JC and his family take very good care of out Rottie. We can go out of town and know that our boy is cared for, given attention with no worries.
Bo is a hard headed yellow Labrador!! The training he received from JC and his team has made life a lot better for us and him. I had worked with him since birth but could only make some progress. JC got through to him and he is a lot more manageable. My wife enjoys the dog more as well. The children can even manage him. Thanks JC More...
JC trained our stubborn black lab and did a phenomenal job! Thank you for doing such a great job and treating him as one of your own while he was there!
Amazing at what he does!!!! From obedience to protection, JC has the solution for your needs!!!
JC is an exceptional trainer and truly has a gift when it comes to training dogs!!
Jc is the best when it comes to dog training would never go to anyone else for advice or training tips!
I was told that I needed to consider having my dog out down. I sent him to JC for socialization and obedience training. He was very nervous around new people and showed a bit of an aggressive side. JC had Blu for about two weeks, Blu received 1 on 1 training every day. When he returned he was a new dog. People could not believe the change. I highly recommend JC !! More...
