I would recommend the training center to anyone. The facility is immaculate. Everyone is super nice and they are so loving to the dogs. We did the 3 week boot camp with our Frenchie named Sam. We needed help with potty training and his behavior. Before the camp we could not have him around the granddaughters because he wanted to love on them but he’s like a football player. After the camp he was very well behaved, much calmer and doing great with his commands. Potty training is not there yet but much better than before. We are determined to get him to ring the bell. Great communication after the training is done. They are there to talk you through problems and support you and your dog. Thank you Angie Newton Campbellsville KY More...

Great training facility. After leaving my dog for three weeks, he came home well trained and house broken. They got him to do things that I could not and now he’s such a happier, more well behaved little guy. If you are having issues with training or house breaking, this is the place to go. More...

Thank you so much Stacey!! We are always here if you need anything at all!! This makes my day to hear he is doing so well!!

After they failed to deliver on what we were promised, I posted a review to their Facebook page voicing my displeasure with the end results and the poor customer service. One of the owners then proceeded to stalk my Facebook page and personally attacked me on the review comments section on their Facebook page. Basically told me I was a horrible person and didn't deserve to have a dog, citing posts from my personal Facebook page and using them to say I was a horrible person. This is the most unprofessional business (I use that term loosely) I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. This is not an isolated incident as I read through the reviews on their page and anyone who left a negative review the personally attacked each person, calling them liars etc... I would find any other business to do this work if you can! Absolutely horrible!!!! More...

Roxy had a blast when she attended this Boot Camp. She stayed for three weeks. When she came home she was so much more calm! She quit knocking my four-year-old over and didn’t really play bite the first few days. She listens a lot better but still has trouble sometimes because she is still a puppy. We are very happy with the results of this training and would gladly recommend it to anyone looking to train their pet. The most impressive part to me is that she definitely always goes to the door when she wants to go out and has not had a single accident since she’s been home. Like I said she’s not perfect but she is still a puppy and I did not expect her to be perfect when she got home. It’s going to take a lot of work on all of our parts and I am very grateful for all the hard work do you like Cumberland K-9 Training Center team put in. Thank you all for all your hard work. It really shows! More...

I can’t express how grateful we are for you all! Our hands were tied with our new doodle puppy and we had two small children as well. Charlie was to the point to where we could not do anything with her. We honestly was about to give up! She did the 3 week training course, and has been home 4 days now. Wow, the change is INSANE. She’s not by any means perfect...but her behavior and adjustments since training is TREMENDOUS. Her peeing when excited has completely eliminated, she does NOT jump or nibble on the kids, she follows her commands with us, I get so proud when she rings her doorbell to go use the bathroom (the excitement you get when your kids potty for the first times ). Truly, we could not recommend a better play then Lake Cumberland.. well worth it. I would do it over again without hesitation. ❤️❤️ More...

Just spent over 45 minutes on the phone with the owner and trainer of Lake Cumberland K-9 Training Center Alisa, Streetmans Shepherds will always recommend this wonderful woman and company for all training needs because she CARES! Alisa is the type of person who calls you at 6:45pm at night because she loves what she does and she loves our Shepherds! We love Alisa and the results she has provided for the dogs we have sent to her and will continue to go to Alisa for all of our training needs. More...

I highly recommend LCK K-9 training. My sweet girl was having trouble with potty training, would not walk on a leash, chewed everything in sight, wouldn’t obey any commands, and was just about scared of everything. After spending 3 weeks in the boot camp she was a different puppy. She knows and obeys several commands. We enjoy 2-3 walks around the track every day. She no longer chews things that are not hers. We were able to take her to our parents for Christmas on a 4 day trip and she did perfect there as well. I am so happy I decided to enroll her in training school. If you are considering it, you can’t go wrong with this school. They love all the animals and treat them so good. I definitely will use them again should I get another fur baby I’m the future.

Absolutely love this training center. Alisa and her staff are excellent with the fur babies. Her facility is a state of the art training center that follows safety and health regulations. ..you would never know an animal lived until the building. I am super pleased with the training and care they showed my 4 month standard poodle. She was there for me in any way and did her very best to do what I asked her to do. She would always answer my calls and posted videos and photos every day. She is a blessing from God and is definitely in her element. Thanks so much, Lake Cumberland K-9! More...

I am so impressed with Alisha and he crew. It has been just over a year that you trained Lilly our rescue. She took to the training well and is such a good dog now. Still hyper as ever but well behaved. our son has Jayce with you right now and I can see from the video's he is doing well. I have an extra whistle for him here. Probably haven't used a whistle with Lilly for months and tried it out the other day, she came running right away. Thank You all so much.
if anyone is looking for a very good trainer - you found it here.

Picked up my GSD today and it was like I picked up a new dog! We are amazed at her behavior and how well she obeys when we tell her to do something--thanks Alisa and your entire crew for taking such great care of my baby girl the past three weeks--you all are AWESOME!

I just picked Sadie the boxer up yesterday. And it was exactly like I knew it would be and what I paid for. Alisa and her staff gave me the ingredients now Ill bake my own cake. Anyone that knows dogs realizes they have to be worked constantly. Lake Cumberland K9 started Sadie's training and Ill finish it. She does exactly what she's supposed to but still has her distractions. And anytime there was an issue with my Sadie I was contacted immediately. I'm more than pleased with Alisa and her staff. Keep up the good work!!!!! More...

Just picked up Captain Gitmo from his weekend stay with Alisa. I can't say enough about how much she loves him.

I sent Bear (Rhodesian Ridgeback) and Ruby (Schnauzer) to boot camp back in the summer and must say that she is definitely the dog magician. Rhodie's are known to be very stubborn. They also grow to be very big, so it's important he learned how to behave. I don't think I've ever seen puppies. completely housebroken that young. The only behaviors I've had issues with are the ones that I haven't followed through with very well. �
I only wish she was closer. ��

Lisa and her staff are amazing! I took my rowdy 19 week old labradoodle ( Bentley) to her and In 3 weeks she’s made a huge difference in his behavior. She’s also taught him several tricks. We are continuing to work On the bell training to reinforce what he’s learned there as far as potty training. He was very consistent there! She has such a love for all the puppies and dogs she trains. Bentley told her bye and it was the sweetest thing ever. He laid on her chest and was sad to say goodbye! More...

This was baileys last option before finding a new home and let me tell you... she is here to stay. When we dropped Bailey off I had very little hope because of how naughty and wild she was. When I picked her up today I was moved to tears. She is a whole different dog. Just like children she tests her boundaries but she is learning that I am now boss and with every second I'm seeing all the hard work and time they have put into her. Thank you so very much for saving Bailey and keeping me sane. I am beyond moved with her new manner and tricks. More...

I thought there was no hope for Layla. She's stubborn and hard headed. Does what she wants when she wants to do it attitude. No, not all issues were corrected 100% as that takes a lot more time then 5 weeks and a lot of work on my part, but a good portion of her bad behaviors have been corrected. We had a few issues 2-3 days after Layla came home. Alicia drove over an hour to my house to let us know what we were doing wrong. I wish I had found this place when Layla was younger, as I would have had the needed tools to have control of her before the behaviors set in. More...

Rue has only been home 1 day and we can tell a huge difference! My favorite thing he learned was stay and leave it. We are so thankful for the training staff and how much they loved our fur baby while they had him.

We just picked up our two adult (1 and 4) year German Shepherds and the transformation has been amazing. Yes, they are testing us, Boomer the young one just lays down when he doesn't want to do a command or trick, but the behavior is amazing. No more jumping or knocking into you on purpose. The playful biting has stopped. My 7 year old is able to walk with them on a leash without pulling and when we stay stop they obey and will sit. When we yell "car" they go over to the grass and sit down. We've even had some successful time outs or "down and stays" for getting into trash. I can't say enough about how wonderful this has been. The training when we picked them up made us all confident even my kids that we could work with them everyday and continue their training! They were so loved while they were away and the socializing they got there was great!!! Can't thank you all enough! More...

Our Lucy, a golden retriever/lab mix was completely out of control so we sent her to Alicia and her team for the 3 week boot camp. She's been home not quite a week and her behaviors are not 100% corrected but WOW are they 95% better than they were when we dropped her off! The rest is up to us and some consistency in keeping up with what Lucy was taught. Alicia is willing to come to our house an hour away if we need her too if Lucy falls back into some of her more obnoxious habits but I'm not sure we will need her too, she sends home a pretty comprehensive corrections manual specialized just for your pet. Thank you so much Lake Cumberland K-9 for an amazing job! More...

These guys are amazing, my pup was a very hyper dog when we first brought her to Alisa and dropped her off for a 3 week boot camp. We have had Charlie home for 2 days and she is a completely different dog so far, she is minding all commands and only had one accident since being home!!! Ring bells to go out and getting better with the things we need to work on, thank you guys so much you saved our dog and now we can as actually enjoy her! If you need a dog trainer please try these guys and you won't be disappointed. More...

Maybe it’s a little too soon to write a review just yet b/c I haven’t even been home w/ my dog a full 24 hours yet. But I can already see such a huge difference in my dog’s behavior! She’s only had one accident in the house & I was able to correct her just as Alisa had showed me yesterday before I left to bring Nova back home. Alisa & her staff are absolute miracle workers! I cannot thank you guys enough for helping my sweet Nova. I would recommend them to anyone, I drove 2 hours one way & I wouldn’t have wanted her anywhere else. More...

I can't brag enough about Alisha and her staff she has. I'm very happy with the work she did with our German Shepard Sadie. She has laid the ground work for us to follow to make her into the dog we know she can be. What is so amazing though is she did it in Sign language for my fiancée who is deaf. She listens to her with her hands. And for that I can not say thank you enough. My 4 year old daughter can handle lher and is practicing with her and she will listen to her and when it's potty time she will not pull her. It's just plain awesome to watch! If you have any doubts please don't! I would recommend this place to anyone with any dog breed! More...

Alisa and her staff are AMAZING! We sent our Goldendoodle Ellie for the three week obedience and potty training, she’s been home 3 days and is a totally changed puppy! She’s doing so good with all her commands and not one accident since being home! She rings bells anytime she needs to go out and my kiddos are loving all the new tricks they taught her at training! I would definitely recommend Lake Cumberland K-9 for anyone who needs a trainer for their pup! More...

Alisa is amazing. Hands down the best experience we could have asked for. For ourselves, and our Harper. She worked with us, taught us, and was there every step of the way, plus some. 10/10 would recommend every time. And we’ll be back in about a year. More...

In rebuttal to Mr. Andrew Cheek, yes we did shut down and do a massive cleanup. We had an isolated incident that our vets feel was not contagious nor do they feel it was caused from any unsanitary conditions. We are the only proactive facility that pays out of our pockets to have three vets contracted to inspect our facility on a regular basis. We have tried to get laws passed for all animal facilities to have monthly health inspections as we pay our vets to do. All of this is unfounded and Mr. Cheek took A tour of our facility the day he dropped off his dog bragging on how clean and sanitary we kelp our facility. Dogs are no different than children going to school, there will be stomach bugs, colds, we did the right thing by shutting down and having all the dogs picked up by owners and vacate. There were two dogs still here that we kept isolated because the owners were out of the country on vacations. we have not had any sickness and all the dogs that came back to training that we sent home were perfectly healthy. He said that he was going to do research, if he had truly did this then he would have know that we did a massive clean up even thought it was found not to even be needed. I laid all my employees off for those 10 days and lost several thousands of dollars because of it. I would rather be safe than sorry and to remain as proactive as we are here at Lake Cumberland K-9 Training Center, LLC. The dogs health comes first and formost before training!! Here is my FB post that you can certainly go and find on my page June 26,2018. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVIENCE! We had a dog come for boarding that had a bacterial pneumonia and 10 days age we had to do a partial shut down. We had all the owners to pick up their dogs and big puppies from training, did a deep cleaning and sterilization of the building inside and out, laid off my employees for a week and ran things mostly by myself. I had two dogs that could not be picked up because the families were out of the country in Europe and Finland. So I quarantined them to one room of the building and one dog run until they went home. We and our veterinarian closely monitored these two dogs during the days here. Neither one came down with this pneumonia and went home in perfect condition. I did not shut down the puppy side of the building because they are isolated to a totally different part of the building. All puppies went home healthy and the three I still have are in great condition. We purchased cleaning supplies from one of our vets along with isolation gowns to wear. All of the dogsscheduled to come back are doing just fine so we feel it was an isolated incident. BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY!! We worked along side with one of our vets to insure the safety of the dogs of which ALWAYS comes first with us! One of our vets also did a complete inspection of our facility and found it to be extremely clean and sanitary. For those of you who are not aware, we have contracted three different vets to do inspections and to take care of everone here at the facility. I do not know of any other facility around that pays a vet, much less 3 vets to keep us updated on information, so we remain as proactive as possible! If I could pass a law that all facilities had to have a health inspection I would. We have tried but to no avail. I jumped the gun and evacuation was not necessary, but as I stated, BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY! One of my vets told me the other day, "Alisa it is not what happens that is important as what you do about it! You run a school and viruses are going to happen. Stay proactive as you have been and you will always gain respect from owners and staff!" More...

I contacted this facility out of desperation when my lab became aggressive with my, then, 5 year old son. I left a message and she called me the next day. I was ready to re-home my pup (who was about 7 years old at the time and nearly 100lbs). He had been through a very traumatic event(our three dogs got out of the fence and the alpha of the three was hit and killed on E. Hwy 80 leaving he and our boxer very depressed and confused) so I wanted a professional opinion before I pulled the trigger on giving him away. She agreed that he would probably need to be re-homed, but wanted to see for herself before she gave a definite opinion. She came to my home the following evening. She spent about 3 hours in our home, first observing then training. She didn't train the dog- she trained my 5 year old son!! She showed us how to make him the "pack leader". She showed him how to feed him, walk him on a leash, and how to make him obey commands of sit, lay down, and stay from this kid who was a third of his weight! She taught us how to continue what she showed us and encouraged us to call her if we had any further questions. We were so amazed and grateful we now had an option of keeping our baby!! What she gave us was priceless but SHE REFUSED TO LET US PAY HER A DIME!!! She was just happy to help us keep our family together and to sheild us from suffering another loss. Alisa is an amazing person, compassionate and caring, doing what she does because she cares! Nanook is now 10, almost 11 years old and has never again offered to be aggressive with our now 8 year old and 3 year old sons!! Our 8 year old is still in charge and has no fear of this dog who still out weighs him by 40lbs! She is a blessing and we will always be grateful for her!! More...

I have referred many of my friends to this facility over the last 7 years. I have personally been to the facility on numerous occasions. This is a top quality professional training business, the numerous friends that I have referred still have their dogs and they are all well trained. The grounds are kept impeccably clean and tidy. The animals boarded in this facility are all well treated as if they were their own pets. The care given here is of the highest standard. There are wonderful videos of the many pets and facility on their facebook page that exhibit how much attention and care these animals receive. I have referred for many years to this facility and will continue to do so. More...

Very caring, loving, and professional. Alisa has given her life for these dogs. She would never hurt an animal. Especially a dog. She trained my husky at 3 months old. But not only that when my husky was a couple years old I had to move and could not take him with me, Alisa kept him and took care of him for a year and never asked for anything in return. When I was were we could be reunited she even drove 3 hours to bring my husky to me. He was extremely happy and healthy. This speaks for the character of Alisa and her business. If I got another puppy I would take him there no question! More...

I have know Alisa for several years and she is a great trainer that takes great pride in her work. She goes above and beyond for her customers and all of the fur babies that she trains and boards. Her facility is top notch and I have toured her new and her previous facility and it was so clean you could eat off the floors. All of the dogs that come to her business for training and boarding are inspected daily to make sure they are in good health. She cares deeply for all the animals and would NEVER neglect any animal or cause harm to any animal. There is a reason she has been in business for 20+ years and a reason that people come from all over to have her train their furbaby, its because she is simply the BEST!! And if you see any negative comments, just remember, she wouldnt stay in business and have thousands of customers if she or any of her staff were neglecting or abusing animals. She made this business her life because the animals are her first priority. Its just that simple.... I would recommend her to anyone that wants their dog to be trained in a professional, loving and caring manner. More...

30 July 2018

I love how people get more torn up over dogs than people or even kids. And how people love to jump on bandwagons! If you have never even taken your dog somewhere then putting any comment on here is down right ignorant. Also taking the word of one person with one experiance and starting a smear campaign against a person or business is a sad use of time. I have personally taken a puppy there in the past and was way way more than pleased no sickness no timidness and everyone was great to work with. Unless YOU yourselves have a negative experience and you have proof that a sickness occurred because of a business which lets face it sorry pets get sick it could happen anywhere. So please do the world a favor get a life and stop being a foolish follower ...... GOD BLESS :) More...

I took our Sadie there for crate training and the facility was clean and Sadie loved it there. She came home and did great. We had a Shih-zuh named Penny who we took to our local vet for a UTI and she was given pills for it, she died 2 days later...did I want to blame the vet? YES but could I prove it? NO not without an autopsy.Quit trying to witch hunt these people without any proof...I am sorry for your loss! Believe me I know the pains of losing your canine baby...I still feel it today but isn't there enough hate in this world without causing problems for these people? More...

The workers here love the animals. They treat your fur babies like their own.

The best dog I'll ever own came from Alisa, he was super loving, obedient, and knew lots of tricks plus, was excellent with the little one. Great place for any pup or dog to be. More...

I have known Alisa for more than 20 years. A hard worker that is dedicated to taking great care of people's animals. I highly recommend her.

Rex, my golden doodle, went to K9 traing for obedience, boarding and potty training. I felt that Rex was always well cared for. I would recommend and take Rex back. You can also visit/follow Rex's instagram page at mrmanrex. More...

I first used Alisa for obedience class for Jax, I still have his graduation picture on my refrigerator. I have left Jax at her facility (new and old location) for boarding and have been completely satisfied. I recommend her to many people.

I went my puppy Sadie here, she was trained as was stated and even learned to read sign language. When we picked up Sadie. Alisha showed her what she had learned and the rest of the facility. It was spotless dogs looked happy with food and water in there bowls. Bad things happen but I know they wouldn’t hurt any dog!! I’d go there again in a heartbeat!! More...

I have personally know the owner for many, many years. This is called full disclosure. I can not believe that she would ever mistreat any animal in any way. I know her only to be an honest animal loving person. She would make the most extreme animal lover proud. I would stake my life on this. More...

A word to the wise: any negative review of Lake Cumberland K-9 Training Center in Somerset you see here that's been posted in the first couple weeks of December 2017 is most assuredly part of a smear campaign begun by someone whose dog suffered because of his own failure to act. I've known Alisa Peterson-White for years, and know her well enough to have dismissed these recent claims out of hand. Alisa is a highly skilled, dedicated and caring professional, and she and Art and their staff maintain the highest standards of care and cleanliness while working with doggy clients and their families. It was discouraging to see the enthusiastic pile-on that followed the first negative post. Some of those people were probably well-meaning animal lovers who took the allegations for truth. But I know Alisa, the pride she takes in her work and her genuine love for animals. Sorry, not buying that story. And neither should you. More...

We adopted Tank from the humane society, he was already 2 yrs old so we didn't know a lot about his prior life. He had severe seperation anxiety (especially when away from my husband) he broke his bottom teeth busting out of 2 metal crates. We sent him to 3 week doggy "boot camp" with Alisa and she taught him how to be a dog again! When we picked him up, she was very thorough with what he had been taught, what he needed from us to continue on with his good behavior. She turned a big, scaredy dog into a well behaved member of our pack! More...

You are not going to find a better place for your dog. The owners are conscientious and dedicated and I are the only people who ever watch Lenny if the need arises. I just read some of the reviews that a few keyboard warrior types want you to believe are honest and they are not. I grew up in that community and I am well aware of how gossip and hearsay are used as weapons to try to destroy people and businesses and that is certainly true in this case. Don't believe that asshat and his minions who are obviously dealing with issues with themselves. This is a top shelf operation. More...

Thank you so much for the hard work you put in and the time you spent with Lily. She learned so much from you. She is a great rescue. So much fun. I am so glad Kevin and Lauren brought Jayce to you. Richard and I have been telling them to bring him to you. I told them he will come home a different dog. They will just need to keepup his training. More...

My Buffy has been here since Monday. I have shared her videos yesterday and today. I am amazed with her progress. I knew she was a smart girl and willing to learn/work. But WOW.....just WOW at how well she is doing. If anyone is thinking of having a dog trained professionally I would recommend Lake Cumberland K 9 !!!! One proud and happy momma here !! Can't wait to see my girl next week. More...

She has turned kilo into the perfect pup. :) I also loved that she would keep me updated on the good and the bad.. I really can not stress how pleased I am with the changes she has made with our precious baby boy. :) More...

Alisa is just awesome. She has been training my dog there at her facility and has kept me up to date on how she is doing. Sent me pictures and posted pictures of her often . I can call her anytime and I visited with my dog about two weeks ago. I could tell that my dog really loved and respected Alisa. She listened to every command and so proud of herself. She Knows how to ring a bell to go outside. She was so much more calmer! I am thinking of getting another dog in the near future and I would not even entertain taking my dog anywhere else. Alisa is so knowledgeable about breeds of dogs and how to train each one according to their personalities. That's what I loved the most about Alisa's methods. She doesn't train the dogs the same. She is highly versatile and reads these dogs amazingly. She trains each dog to fit what will work with their personalities. She told me even with 5 German Shepherds in front of her, the reasons they might all jump on you will be different and she corrects behaviors according to what is prompting the particular dog to display the behavior. She is just awesome!!! She is a wonderful asset to this community and all the communities around her. She trains dogs from other states as well! This impressed me the most! More...

Alisa is awesome! She takes the time to get to know each of her students so that she can do what's best for them. My two are both stubborn cry babies. Lol but she has never gave up no matter how difficult they get. Now they love to come visit and their behavior at home has been 10x better. More...

Just picked up Sabre, my German Shepard puppy, from Lake Cumberland K-9 Training Center, and I am beaming like a new Papa. Sabre stayed with Alisa for 3 weeks and he is doing awesome. She is an excellent trainer and an absolute asset to this community. You might find other trainers, but you will not find a better one!! As long as she trains dogs she will always have my business. :) More...

Ezra was a stray who we think had been abused. He lacked confidence and destroyed everything he came in contact with. He was an absolute wreck! We took him to Alisa for the boot camp program and he has returned home a different dog. Listening so well! He doesn't even attempt to chew on anything. We are so proud of the dog she helped him to become! Thank you Alisa for all your hard work! You did a Great job!! More...

Alisa loved, cared for, and trained our Augie in her Boot Camp program. He had a wonderful visit and came home well adjusted, happy and a perfect gentleman. Thank you so much for understanding him and treating him like one of your own. He and Wixi can't wait to come back for a visit. More...

Alisa is a wonderful dog trainer. I brought Ruby to her as a puppy and she had her sitting, laying and staying the very first class. Ruby is very stubborn and smart and needs constant reinforcement, which Alisa continued to help me with. I was unable to completely potty train her, so she then went for doggie boot camp. What a relief! After 3 weeks, my dog came home potty trained. More...

Q&A

Obviously I love the dogs! I enjoy helping to make dogs more manageable and a better fit for owners. The changes the dogs/puppies make that we get to witness while in training at my facility is phenomenal and the look on owners faces when they witness the better version of their dog is priceless.

I started training dogs with my grandfather at age 13. I later went to college to achieve a psychology degree. I worked in the field for a couple of years but was not happy. I decided that I could use my psychology along with training ability to start my own business.

I absolutely love each and every dog/puppy that comes for training at LCK-9. I treat them as I would my own dog even taking them into my home if needed to help sooth the adjustment. We have an amazing success rate and thousands of followers.
