We are at the beginning stages of training our 9 week old Golden Retriever! We have a long road ahead with training, but he made us feel confident and excited! I love how personable he is, it feels like he is going through the journey with us, like a family. You can tell he is passionate about his job, and that is a trainer we wanted! Thank you again!

I really enjoyed working with k9katelynn. It was very beneficial for both us and the dogs. The dogs made a lot of progress and we learned a lot about properly training the dogs so that the progress can continue even after the lessons.

I went into this training with my rescue dog (whom I've had for 3years) who's had severe anxiety issues from a rough early life hoping for just some basic behavioral modifications after all my routes/attempts have failed. Tom has exceeded all my expectations and has helped us reach milestones we weren't sure we'd ever reach! She's much more social, happy and when her anxiety rears, we both have better tactics on how to deal with those moments and how to move past. I highly recommend his services to anyone, even if your dog isn't having anxiety, behavioral disorder problems. My other dogs have become even better behaved since she has started training as well, in little things such as barking or waiting at the door. Trust me, its bigger than you think!

K9katelynn replied:
Thank you for the review! By you taking good notes and following up with the training you saw a great improvement! She’s a great dog! Thank you again from your friends at Phoenix dog training! K9katelynn.com

We reached out to Tom and K9Katelynn as there was frustration in our house as our puppy thought my husband was his playmate and would not listen to him. He is a very high energy dog and though we kept him busy (run, hikes, walks), he was still energetic and would do commands when he wanted to. He's made so much progress and the listens to my husband. Their relationship is really good and I'm grateful. It does require work-Tom isn't going to "fix" things just while he's at your home. You need to put in the time and commit to training. Would definitely recommend to someone committed to the process.

K9katelynn replied:
Thank you! He’s a great dog! Pleasure working with you! K9katelynn.com

I wish there were more than 5 stars, because Tom of K9Katlynn deserves as many as there could possibly be. I was amazed at his patience with my puppy and with me. He has her doing more than I could dream of for a 6-month old puppy and her 80 yr..old owner. Thank you Tom. You are the BEST.😘

If you are thinking about finding someone to help you train your dog(s) Tom is a great resource. He is an excellent trainer and helps dog owners through each step to make their home life with their dogs more pleasant. Tom gave us the tools and knowledge to help us be consistent with training our dogs from week to week. I am glad we did this training and highly recommend others to hire Tom if you need help in this area.

The training was very helpful for us and allowed us to learn better ways to handle our dog. Our dog is responding well to the new commands and the training was simple to learn.

I have met Kate through many community events and know that she is one of the top dog healers in Tucson. If you have an animal that needs some special care, talk to Kate.

Tom did a great job! After our first evening of training we saw an improvement in our dog's behavior. It was evident Tom enjoys working with dogs and their owners.

Thank you K9Katelynn for all of your help training my dog Summer. While Summer was a very well behaved dog overall, she needed some help with learning basic commands, jumping up and walking on a leash. After going through this training program, I can say that all of these got accomplished!!! Thanks again for everything!

The pups, believe it or not, enjoy their sessions with Tom. And all three are already experts on the treadmill. Slowly but surely they are learning better habits and Tom is quite patient and provides excellent instruction to them and to us. Highly recommend.

Tom has a systematic, structured, and easy to understand approach to dog training. Our Golden Doodle has come so far in the months since we started our weekly trainings with him! He shows us the steps to be followed for each discipline, and gives us the chance to practice right then and there to get his feedback. My wife and I highly recommend him.

Review of K9katelynn by Chris Mcguinn

I hired K9 Katelyn to help train my australian shepherd and liked his approach of positive reinforcement. I've done dog training classes in the past, but hands down I've never learned as much as I did by going through this program. I took at least a page of notes during every session which aided me greatly when we practiced during the week. I literally feel like I have a book of knowledge now and could train any new dog on my own now. And the only reason I think I could do that is because of the copious notes I was asked to take each week during our training sessions. My dog is super well behaved, was able to learn all the skills, and is very obedient now. I can't thank Tom and K9 Katelyn enough for helping me train my dog.

Found Tom very rude. He seemed to think everything we were doing was wrong. Ended up making him leave due to how rude he was.

I met with Tom yesterday for him to evaluate my dog. I am hard of hearing and when he talked he sounded like an auctioneer. I couldn't understand half of what he said. I use a walker and he recommended a treadmill for the dog. My dog doesn't need a treadmill to learn how to do his business outside. I thought he would be able to put a package deal together, but when I tried to tell him about certain things he kind of blew me off. To top things off, he asked if there were other dogs in the house. I said no, but my friend was moving in with her dog. He then asked if we were gay. It was highly unprofessional and impertinent to ask a personal question that had nothing to do with my dog. I don't care how many awards are won or how great a trainer is...my personal business has nothing to do with the training of my dog. I can be your best source of advertisement or your worse nightmare. I prefer the latter.

From our first meeting with Tom I knew we were in good hands. He is extremely professional, knowledgable and friendly. His ability to train worked well for the trainees (us humans) and our dog, Noodles. We learned multiple commands (necessary and fun ones), he helped with safety issues and any questions or problems that we were having. Noodles is doing so well and it is directly related to Toms excellent ability to train. We are so grateful to Tom and would highly recommend him to anyone! I would not hesitate to call him for additional training or a reboot if we needed it. Make sure and do your homework- it really helps!

Review of K9katelynn by John Reeves

Tom was top-notch working with our Miniature Schnauzer puppy, Bayner. He is knowledgeable, very patient, and adapts his training methods to the individual dog and its owners. We saw tangible results every week. We had to take some breaks in training due to some travel commitments, and Tom was very flexible about scheduling. He also gave us helpful tips that would not have occurred to us, like using a treadmill and swimming laps to keep Bayner well-exercised. Tom also suggested specific toys that would keep Bayner mentally stimulated, and he had good health care tips like regularly using an ear wash and using bully bones to satisfy puppy chewing needs. Each time Tom came to the house he provided more training exercises and tips and always followed up on them. Bayner is better on a leash, obeys commands more readily, and is more fun to be around. We would absolutely recommend Tom to anybody looking for an effective dog trainer.

I met Tom from K9katelynn through a friend that graduated from his training program with her two poodles. While I was a bit skeptical at first, as I had been down the private dog training route before, I was still a bit overwhelmed with my dogs lack of obedience and anxious behavior. Tom took the time to understand my goals as a dog owner of two minature poodles and my desire to have them fully and happily integrated into our family. His organized and methodical approach to step by step training made perfect sense to me. He helped me understand that with patience and loving praise, my dogs would very soon understand the newly placed boundaries that would nurture them physically, emotionally and mentally. I quickly put into action training techniques that he taught me to eliminate jumping and we experienced, immediate positive results. Later today we did our first "walk" in the pool, also marked with great success. Each dog swam on a lead for approximately 15 minutes with short rest breaks. As I sit here now, writing this review, they are both sleeping quietly in their own space rather than anxiously demanding my attention. I realize the success of a perfectly trained dog lies with my willingness to be prepared and consistent. I am willing to put in the hard work now for the long term gain of being a pet parent to two stunning, happy and well behaved mini poodles. Thank you Tom for your honesty and courage in showing me my well intentioned tough love and rigidity in raising these dogs wasn't aigned with my desire for them to exist harmoniously with our family. If you're considering dog training for your puppy or dog, please give K9Katelynn an opportunity to get to know you and your dog. I'm hard pressed to believe you'll find a more loving and patient trainer.

K9KATELYNN was recommended to us by our Veterinarian for our GSD Presley when she was just 9 months old. Presley has the capacity to be aggressive in certain environments like the Vet. We postponed reaching out to Tom because we thought we could teach her to behave; however, after 15 additional months we realized she controlled us and was misbehaving more frequently to the point where we couldn't trust her in public and she easily over powered us. So I broke down and called K9Katelynn as recommended. We are so incredibly pleased with her progress. From the first day, Presley respected Tom and listened to his training commands. Frequently, I was amazed at how well she listened to him and followed his direction. We had quite the laundry list for Tom of our expectations but over the course of 2 months, Presley has learned the commands and is progressing towards mastering them. Does it take a daily commitment? Yes! But GSDs like Presley require such devotion. Tom has provide us the tools to move forward which will ensure Presley is happy and well behaved. Thank you so much Tom! Presley is well worth the investment!

Highly recommend Tom the dog trainer for all dogs, young and old. This training saved us from needing to get rid of our aggressive and unpredictable dog. It is a lot of work on our end but it is definitely worth it. Thank you Tom!
