Jo tailored our training to what I needed and I wanted. And better yet- when people meet our dog even comments how well behaved he is. I credit it to what Jo taught us. This was our first dog. I was scared and clueless and she made sure we were comfortable and successful. She listened to what we wanted in a pet. We love Max. And we love Jo. She knows dogs and came highly recommended to us. You won't go wrong with her! More...

There's no one else I'd rather have train my dogs than WSK9CO. I've known Joe for many years and have always respected the service she provides to the dogs at SLCO Animal Services. She has trained a service animal for a friend of mine who's son's life was changed dramatically by the presence of his service animal. Now that I have an animal of my own who is being trained to do service work, I have the privilege of working with Michelle. She has been instrumental in working with my sweet Berklee so he can assist me with my needs. Michelle loves what she does and it shows in every aspect of the service she provides my dog and my family. Basically, we'd probably keep her forever if we had an endless budget. Even when he's done with full training, he'll still be seeing "his Michelle" for regular visits because she's become part of his world and very much part of ours. Thank you to Joe and to Michelle for working with our family and our sweet Berklee. If I can ever be of service to you for something like a potential client referral, just let me know. You guys are truly the best! More...

I thought this may help if its a mistake.... but you have a price for your training level 1 at 6k.

We think Joe is amazing. Our four year old, Heidi, is extremely high spirited and very hard to control! We had worked unsuccessfully with another trainer. In desperation we thought we would try again. Everything Joe has taught us is working! She is calm and patient and an excellent teacher. The thing we appreciate most is that she is teaching US how to train our dog. Thank you!!! More...

I LOVE Western States K9 College! My husband and I took the group puppy class with our French Bulldog Louis. Everything we learned in the class made a HUGE difference in raising our tiny puppy! Everything from basic training to correcting problem behaviors was addressed by Joe in this class. Our shy puppy really came out of his shell during the group socialization time. Raising a puppy can be difficult but the skills we learned in this class not only made puppy training easier but also helped us strengthen our puppy-human bond. I recommend this class to every person and puppy I see! I will definitely sign up again whenever I get a new puppy :) More...

Our family can't say enough about Western States K-9 College. Joe and WSK9 was recommended to us by our vet who also had a great experience. One of our older dogs had begun fighting with our newly adopted six month old puppy after initially getting along for the first few months. We were distraught thinking that we may have to give our puppy away. Joe came out the day after we contacted her and evaluated the situation. She assured us that she thought it was very fixable, and set up a training program. She was wonderful to work with, and the dogs were quickly able to be around each other and now even play together. We have also decided to continue the "walk and train" sessions with our puppy to help develop good lifelong habits. We have learned and benefited from Joe's calm disposition and from her vast knowledge of dogs and their behavior, and it has made us better owners. We are very grateful! More...

When our sweet but headstrong and energetic Pit Bull, Nala joined our family, we didn't realize what a challenge it would be to train her. Luckily, we found Western States K-9 College and life with Nala became much more manageable and fun. She helped us to set clear boundaries and rules for Nala so now we feel confident that Nala will behave when expected. We continue to rely on the experience and expertise of Joe and her crew to fine tune Nala's behavior through "walk and trains" and occasional classes. It's truly a pleasure to have a dog that's well behaved and happy to follow us as her leaders. We can't thank WSK9 College enough! More...

We have appreciated the responses from our dogs due to the training tips that we have been shown. Joe has been patient and has guided our 3 dogs to learn new techniques. We are not done yet, but expect further visual growth in their learning curve. More...

We were introduced to Joe and the rest of the Western States K-9 College staff when one of our rescue dogs was causing some concerns at his doggie day care center. Joe came to our house and worked with us and both of our dogs to help manage the bad behavior but still allow the unique personalities of each dog shine through. We were able to manage the bad behavior quickly and now there are no issues when they need to go to day-care which is a relief. We have continued to work with WSK9 on a regular basis with walk-trains that Jax looks forward to so much - and he has even made a girl friend with one of the other 'walkers' in the group. The complete and yet flexible services and advice that WSK9 provides is wonderful - even for folks who have had dogs for 20+ years; there is always something new to learn! We have, and will continue, to recommend them to all pet parents. More...

Our experience with Western States K-9 College and Joe was amazing. We did the Beginning CGC class and she made sure to address every dog and owner's quirks and concerns, in regards to the CGC test and personal issues going on at home. She was patient with everyone and had excellent suggestions for everyone. We would love to continue working with her in the future! More...

One of our four dogs had attacked our other dog unprovoked twice in two weeks and was starting to be aggressive around certain objects. We called a friend and she referred us to the owner of Western States. We called, left a message and within 20-30 minutes she called us back. We explained our situation and immediately we were given advice on what to do with our overly aggressive dog. Within a few days we had our first introduction with Jo. Afterwards we received a detailed plan on what we could expect over the next few weeks. Jo has since been back and we have only experienced one more aggressive act, (which was completely my fault). Our dogs are much more mellow and are getting along great. I would recommend Western States to anyone who needs help with their dogs. More...

Joe is hands down the best dog trainer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. When I adopted my dog 4 years ago I knew he came with behavorial issues, but I had no idea how hard they would be to work through. We’ve come a long way, but I knew I needed more. I had taken Joe’s CGC class with my other dog and was impressed with the amount of knowledge she gave and how much she understood dog behavior. I signed up for a series of private lessons and I the improvement that I have seen in my dog, and in myself, is amazing. My dog will always be a work in progress, but the direction and advice she provides does wonders. I am so grateful I found Joe! More...

We have 2 mixed, high energy dogs in our household. When the dogs were 2 years and 1 years old we knew we needed professional help in training them, as they were out of control and were developing some bad behaviors. Our vet recommend Joe for our training needs, she came to our house to evaluate the dogs in their own environment. We decided that private lessons would work best for our dogs and us. Joe not only was able to train our dogs, but more importantly was able to train us to work with our dogs effectively. We also have taken a few group classes, which really helped socialize our dogs with other dogs and people, which was a huge problem before we started working with Joe. One of our biggest success stories was when a 3 year old girl walked up to our older dog, with our permission, and hugged him and he just sat there being all cool with it; before working with Joe, we would not let any kids near our older dog as he thought they were a snack for him. Joe is great to work with and continues to be there for us if we have any questions about new behaviors that arise with our pups. Joes’ training techniques are direct and consistent and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dog trainer. Our dogs are now 4 and 5 years old and are great dogs to have in our lives.

Joe and Marissa are amazing. We are first time dog owners and felt overwhelmed with the task of training our five month old Portuguese Water Dog puppy. Joe and her team helped us to communicate with our dog so that he developed good habits, and overcame bad ones. In just a few weeks she helped us train our dog to use a specific spot in the back yard to go to the bathroom, which has been so convenient. She helped our whole family to learn how to walk the dog, so that even my young children can walk him with confidence. We did kennel training and it has been much easier than I thought it would be. I would highly recommend Western States K-9 College to anyone with a dog, regardless of the age. More...

we love Jo! We have a frisky mini Aussie who was not liking guests in our home. She was well organized, had a plan and stuck with us all the way through. Her insights into the dog's behavior are so interesting! I would definitely use her again and recommend her. More...

I have had a WONDERFUL Experience with Joe & Western States k9! I asked to get in for a appointment to have a Behavior Consult, and they got me for an appointment in a timely manner I didn't need to wait really at all. And because my husband and I just adopted a New puppy we needed some help and advice on how to deal with my current older house dog. My husband and I were REALLY stressed and concerned it wouldn't work out with the new puppy! But when Joe came over and explained the situation and how dogs really think and what their perspective was, it all made COMPLETE sense. I actually began to see "light at the end of the tunnel"! With her guidelines, expertise, and explanations I have seen a tremendous change in both dogs!! Its a big relief and so much more settling! I would strongly encourage you as a new pet owner or old pet owner that needs some additional help for training or even to just understand your pet better to contact her!! 5 stars! More...

Joe and her team are really great! Our dog is now 2+ years old. During the first year my Wife was honestly ready to put her up for adoption. With Joe's help with both the dog AND us we could not be happier. Jackie is truly part of our Family and is for the most part VERY well behaved. Joe taught us simple ways to keep our Dog in check and to learn to respect us. I would highly recommend their services. We still check in from time to time with questions and services and have always been treated very well. Thank you Joe for helping us have a Dog that we will love and cherish all of her life. More...

We have had problems with all of our dogs' behavior throughout each of their lives. We had gone to several other trainers and never got the results we were looking for. We love our dogs, but their behavior in public was keeping us from being able to do things with them and enjoy them more. We thankfully found Joe and her awesome team. We had private in-home lessons with all 4 of our dogs and the results we have had by implementing her training techniques have been amazing. Our dogs are happier and much more well adjusted. We now have a much better understanding of our dogs and have the tools and knowledge to maintain our training. We took our 2 young rescue dogs to the Canine Good Citizens course that Western States offers and it was so helpful. We recommend everyone who asks us about training to Joe and her team. We could not be happier with the entire experience. Joe is a true expert and always willing to give encouragement and advice for any problems that may arise. We definitely plan to continue the wonderful different classes they offer. Not only did we love working with Joe and her team, but our dogs loved it too. More...

Joe and her staff have given a new life to my son when they found and trained a service dog for him. Their caring, concern and expertise are incredible. Our beautiful dog is still in training, and they go above and beyond to work around our schedule and our son's needs. I'm so excited for the dog and the boy! I've seen the results on other dogs they've worked with, and they have a "dog whisperer" way with animals! More...

Last year I acquired a dog who developed separation anxiety. Without Joe's help, my pup would have ended up at the shelter. After animal control was called on me and my roommates were ready to move out, I was referred to WSK9Co by Sugarhouse Vet. Joe made herself available through email and cell phone, and when my dog showed no improvement, Joe came to my home for a free consultation. She gave me a game plan and helped us move forward so that my dog, me, and my new roommates were happy. She expected little in return, though I fully intend to take part in the classes and clubs offered through Western States K-9 College. Until then, I highly recommend contacting Joe for classes or help with any difficulties you may be facing with your pup. Joe is NOT just a dog trainer...she's an invaluable resource, and I think she trained me more than my dog in the long run.Thanks Joe! More...

Joe helped us a great deal with our dog, giving us an honest evaluation of her behaviors and sharing many excellent tips with us as we take our old girl on a cross country trip to live in a new area. She impressed us with her professionalism and expertise. We will definitely be recommending her services. More...

We just finished the basic class for our 5 month old puppy. It was a great class and we learned a lot. Loved the test at the end. It really motivated us to work with the puppy every night. Thanks Amy! We will be back for the Urban Agility class next month! More...

We met Joe at Western States K-9 College through the folks at Camp Bow Wow and are so grateful for all of the work that she and her staff have done with both of our rescue dogs.  We had some in-home training, walk and trains and are now in the weekend Urban Obedience classes teaching our dogs how to react (or not to) when out in public.Joe. Amy and the rest of the trainer are patient with the dogs and the owners - every experience we have had to date has been positive and we recommend them to other dog owners all of the time. More...
