I know many of you have been with me and sully. Wether it be family, dog lover, friend or colleague.He is my guy. I am so not sorry he is in my life. I am blessed to have such a faithful friend.After 4 years though, of his constant reactivity. His anxiousness, I was not able to control even on medication. This Leads to the worst and best day of my life.... 12/1/19. Drop off day. In the back of my head, I worried, if this didn’t work, where are gonna be? I fought with him for 30 minutes to get his muzzle on. He was was bleeding from dew claw getting stuck trying to pull the muzzle Off. I was crying... this was going to be the last thing he remembers. Me being forceful... keep the muzzle on it will be ok. I am leaving you with these 2 humans. Praying they can help us. I am just gonna walk away and pray she can help us. He is not a person reactive dog, but, I have never done something like this before, so I didn’t know what to think. I wanted safety. So the muzzle is necessary.You expressed your anxiety's and resistance to going in. Yet these guys are ok.They cleaned you up. Made you see it is ok. It is not going to be easy, but they are there to protect you. Raise you up. Show you your potential. They are going to help us move forward with our lives. They are going to help you see how brave and capable you are! This is a very true encounter of needing this training. I love sully so much. I was having non stop anxiety, worry and nightmares that something would happen with his reactivity.... my lack of skill to control it, and my lack of ability to help him be in a positive state of mind. I now don’t have all the answers, but I do have skills from trainings to go from. It is still a daily thing, but it is so much less scary.Since going home I have sent so many questions to @kane9dogtrining and advocacy. All my questions were addressed with out judgement.I could not provide a greater recommendation. @kane9 has helped to get our lives back to a healthier home life! She has helped us to grow and be happier each day. More...

I got my dog, Alicia, back from the 2 week board and train program 3 days ago and I couldn’t be happier. She attended for overall manners but mostly for her dog reactivity. Kaitlin did an excellent job and laid a beautiful foundation down for us to continue building on back home. Alicia was a bit tense and confused about having to do the same work at home, but within a day and a half she was following commands like I never could have imagined. Her leash manners are phenomenal and we can now safely walk around other dogs because I have the tools I need to work her through scary situations. I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome and would recommend Kaitlins services to anyone who struggles with any behavioral issues or who just want a respectful pup! Alicia is calm and collected, which makes our whole home situation that much calmer too. Thank you so much to Kaitlin and her assistant for guiding Alicia into a safer and relaxed mindset! More...

I am SO proud of Sydney. I know the real work lies ahead, but this was worth the head start. @kane9dogtraining is incredible. I was at a loss with this dog. The potty training alone was a nightmare and turns out she was doing it for attention ‍♀️ I highly recommended this trainer to anyone, no matter what your dog’s issue is, she will fix it in a week or 2! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

Kaitlin was so positive and real about Pako, and the work it would take to help his reactivity, and our interactions/responsibilities as owners. It has been a life-changing experience watching him develop a new mindset. Thank you for believing in Pako and for helping to build our confidence and knowledge base journey as his owners! More...

Kane9 training was the best decision I ever made for my dog Pearl. Kaitlin did a great job modifying Pearl’s behavior so we can now take less stressful walks and have company without any barking.

So thankful for Kane9! My guy, Pete boarded with Kaitlin for a weekend before I officially adopted him. He had shown some reactivity towards other dogs and his co-existence was a big concern for me while deciding to adopt. After boarding, Kaitlin gave me really great feedback and insight that ultimately helped me decide to adopt Pete. He just completed two weeks of training with Kane9 and is doing amazing! He is now a dog I can take with me anywhere without being preoccupied worrying about his behavior. He is calm and secure and I owe that to Kaitlin! She has a unique attitude about training and truly teaches dogs to feel comfortable knowing that their people have their backs. Thank you!! More...

Kaitlin is an awesome trainer and helped with two of my foster dogs. Rusty the chihuahua needed some help with manners on leash and the prong collar was so helpful. Jackson the beagle was on the shy side and really took to her methods. She was able to give us lessons to get the resource guarding under control and crate training a boost! More...

Kaitlin has worked with 2 of my dogs and most importantly with dog training, she's worked with me! It's so important that the owner be trained how to train their dog and Kane 9 is really good at taking the time to do this. A thorough pick up after your dog's training helped us incorporate the training methods at home. Follow up group dog walks that she hosts can help with the dog interaction part of training, as well as cleaning up your skills. I'm so grateful we found Kane 9...it's been a game changer. More...

Kaitlin at Kane9 was invaluable to helping my house adjust to a new puppy. She gave recommendations for helping Piper work through her anxiety and lack of confidence and gave us ideas that we needed to build our confidence to train her. Just as valuable was the support and training suggestions for having my two dogs get along - I never expected the incredible success that we have had. I highly recommend Kaitlin and Kane9 for any home that is looking for help with training. I wish that I had this support when I got my last dog 10 years ago. Thanks so much!! More...

Kaitlin is an amazing dog trainer! Very knowledgeable, passionate, and works long hours to make each dog successful based on their needs!

Kaitlin took in a tough foster dog for us for a 2 week board and train and really worked some magic with her. Rose had never lived in a home, was very insecure, lacked understanding of leash etiquette, and quite frankly just didn't understand "how to dog". She still has a bit of a road ahead of her but thanks to Kaitlin her foundation is strong and her future is truly looking up! BIG thanks to you, Kaitlin! More...

We highly recommend Kane9!! Kaitlin took in Zoey for her board and train program and 2 weeks later, we picked up a new dog! Zoey has been an anxious girl ever since we adopted her 3 years ago which showed up mostly as leash reactivity, growling and nipping at strangers/dogs/our daughter, hiding, explosions on walks, the list goes on. Kaitlin helped Zoey to be a calmer, respectful, and thoughtful dog so she can make good decisions at home and elsewhere. We’ve seen Zoey’s anxiety just melt away and she’s no longer in a frantic mindset. What a difference! An important part of Kaitlin’s work is the education she provides so that we can be the best owners for our dog. Kaitlin is very thoughtful as she explains why and how we can advocate for Zoey. She makes sure we understand and feel comfortable with our new tools and skills and we now have the confidence to maintain Zoey’s progress at home. Yesterday we passed multiple dogs on a walk and Zoey showed NO reactivity! In the past, we literally would have run in the opposite direction had we seen a dog coming our way, but now we can strut past other dogs like it’s nothing. Kaitlin, we are forever grateful to you!

I am the proud fur baby mom of a four month old female catalouha mix pup. One of my friends recommended Kane9 to me, and I feel very fortunate to have found Kaitlin when I did. We have had one one-on-one session and one educational daycare session so far and I’ve already seen so much improvement! Her training and advice have made a huge difference in the communication and bond Cali and I are building. Staying in the place command is hard-work for a highly energetic puppy, but teaching her place has made such a huge difference in her behavior at home. My little girl was bred to be a hard working hunting dog, and I strongly feel that Kaitlin’s training style is just what she needs to help calm and redirect her overly excited and eager to work nature. I have learned so much from Kaitlyn already and can’t wait to continue our training together. She has helped restore my confidence and given me the proper tools to raise a well-balanced, obedient puppy that will grow up to be an amazing dog. More...

Kaitlin is absolutely incredible! She did a private training session with my golden retriever Harper, and it was nothing short of amazing! She took the time to understand Harper’s temperament, in order to tailor fixes for her issues - pulling on walks and jumping on people. After she privately trained Harper, Kaitlin took the time to train me, so I understood everything it would take to keep Harper on this positive path. More...

I brought my one and a half year old dog, Lola, to Kane9 training because I had been struggling with Lola pulling on walks, literally for an hour plus sometimes. Lola was so nervous passing people and reactive when she saw squirrels. Kane9 training helped me understand the effectiveness of a prong collar. Within 30 minutes with Kane 9, she was able to heel and find peace while talking on the leash. The constant connection that we had, via the prong collar, created a lot of healthy communication. When we passed strangers and bikers she was more confident. I would highly recommend any dog to Kane9 training. Kaitlin is easy to work with and answered all of my questions, she helped me understand the techniques that she was using so that I felt more comfortable using them. Overall, best dog training experience I've ever had! More...

We had a board and train weekend with KANE9 Dog Training for our dog Kai. He was abandoned by his first owners for showing dog aggression. We rescued him and found he truly loves some dogs, but has fear aggression toward other dogs because of his anxious nature. We tried basic obedience classes, training books, and tips we learned from online training sites. When nothing seemed to work, we knew we needed to try something else. That's when we got a recommendation to contact Kaitlin! And I am so thankful we did. In just 3 days with Kaitlin, Kai is well on his way to becoming a more calm and balanced dog. Kaitlin not only did intensive training with Kai, but gave my husband and I the tools and training WE need to continue working with him. Kai is already showing amazing progress... And we can only thank Kaitlin and her amazing talent for working with dogs. Also shout out to Rhody for being a great "dog" trainer and Kaitlin's inspiration for helping other dogs. Working with KANE9 was the best decision we could have made for the furry members of our family! More...
