Tom is a great trainer and it is clear from the first session that he can help your family with dedication on your part. He spent about an hour with us at each session, had us take notes, answered questions and gave us the psychology and understanding behind each lesson. Within two sessions, we saw our dogs be more focused and less aggressive towards each other. We are so thankful for his lessons, and will continue working with our pups to keep them happy, healthy and engaged!

It went well Tom taught and gave us the tools to train our dog. Due to health Reasons we were not able to complete the course. What we learned helped us get a trained dog and the tools to continue to train as we feel better.

Thought our German Shepherd was beyond help. Learned a lot. He gave us a lot of tools that we will continue to use. Lots of great tips.

Very professional and knowledgeable trainer. Had my pup potty trained in a week! Tim makes sure you understand the command you are working each session. He shows you first and then works with you until you fully understand. He has you take notes so you can refer back to them at any time. There is always a question or concern time at each session. He had my pup walking on a treadmill in just one session and he loves it!! My pup is less than 6 months old but Tom has him trained!! My pup was always happy to see him and followed his commands.

We adopted a neglected/abused 9 month old Labradoodle. This poor guy had no confidence and was not socialized. We needed help training him.

Tom (K-9Katelynn) is an experienced trainer and has a good understanding of canine behavior. We took notes each of the six training sessions and keep them as a reminder. We continue to practice with Louie (our dog). In the beginning 65 lb. Louie would not walk on a leash. We had to carry him to his first vet visit. Using Tom's techniques, we taught Louie his basic commands. He has gained confidence and has become accustomed to people in social situations. We are very happy we asked for help and received it!! Thank you K-9Katelynn!

Training energetic pup not easy but Tom gave us foundation for calmer, more disciplined lil girl without negative correction. Treadmill and pool really help burn off puppy energy. BUT- You have to invest some time, 20min sessions once or twice, 5days wk to get good results, no magic wand, well worth effort. So be committed to training for payoff- Happy Home.
We continue to review notes taken at sessions and implement. Thanks Tom!

Our puppy Lucy is a very high-energy rescue that was driving us crazy. She would steal anything paper & rush to the couch to eat it. Socks would be grabbed, taken outside and she would jump around and throw them in the air. Lucy was also very aggressive in her play with my wife and would jump on her & play bite. We watched many YouTube videos on how to train her to behave, but she just wasn't responding. My wife was on the verge of saying we needed to take her back to the shelter until we found k9katelyn. We made an appointment with Tom & he came out to speak with us as well as meet Lucy. We signed the "contract" with him & training started the next week. After purchasing the recommended leather leash & collar (as opposed to our rope-type leash & nylon collar), Tom showed us each step of the way for each command and then had us try it as he watched & corrected any missteps. Each day we trained her was for 20-minutes at a time with Lucy on that week's new command and refreshing the commands from the prior weeks. Yesterday was our last training with Tom & Lucy now Heels, Sits, Downs, Stays, Shakes, Places (move to a specific spot & stay), as well as Off (to get her front paws off counters, tables, and people). My wife is much happier with Lucy & the fear of having to return her to the shelter is gone. We now have a well-behaved puppy that is fun to be with. We plan to continue working with her so we can take her to stores with us and with friends. She still gets quite excited, but is learning to control herself. His training is very structured so be mentally prepared to train when he arrives. Our experience was a very positive one, well worth the cost, and we would recommend him to anyone wanting a well behaved dog.

Tom has been amazing with our new puppy. We have learned so many great techniques and habits to establish with our guy. We can already see that he is willing to listen and obey. Tom’s methods are punishment-free so we felt comfortable using all the tools Tom taught us. His level of expertise is virtually unbeatable. Thank you!!!

So thankful We came across k9katelynn when We did. We were struggling with our puppy and as first time puppy owners we were ready to give up. Tom is very respectful, always on time, worked around my husbands hearing and my back issues, and has had so much patience with us. Our dog has come a long way and we’re so excited to finish the rest of the program. Slim loves Tom. Excellent dog training. Recommend to anyone whose looking to train their dog.

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.

Tom helped us set up very easy and manageable routines to do with our dog. His process is detailed but works. If you follow the process, your dog will be so well behaved, and happy. He helped us create an exercise program for our adopted pit bull mix that helped him be the best dog he could be! By the first lesson he was staying off of furniture we didn’t want him on and understanding boundaries. You need to understand this is a commitment. It’s not some easy training program that you zap your dog and they do what you want. You need to put int the time and effort for his techniques to work. It’s like parenting! It’s a full time gig until they fully get it!

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.

Professional trainer, on time, calm, patient with both me and my German Shepard Dog. We learned heel, place, and how to swim - Donnor's favorite exercise now! The owner must put in the time to train. Highly recommend!

So Glad our Veterinarian recommend K9katelynn to us!! We learned from our Veterinarian about K9katelynn..The biggest problem I was having with Megan ( Chow-Beagle mix) was pulling on a lead," Biting" others when touching her mouth.. Megan had no formal training before meeting k9katelynn. I was very happy with the amount of time spent on training!! The concepts were great! After Megan was trained s
he knows all of her commands and knows how to run on a treadmill!! I am so happy now that Megan waits at the door when asked and responds when I give Megan the command to leave something alone!! on a scale or 1-10 10 being the highest I rate K9katelynn on the following... (I recommend K9katelynn to friends and family..7)......(The Quality of the training..10)......(How fair the price was ..7)..(How Friendly our Trainer "Tom: was 9) (Amount of time spent with Megan and myself ..10) I do agree to let k9katelynn call me for a reference and allow this information on K9katelynn's web site, and other social media's area as appreciation of k9katelynn's work with us. Thank you K9katelynn .Debbie L.....Avondale, AZ 9/11/12

I met Tom from K9katelynn through a friend that went through his program. 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. I realize the success of a perfectly trained dog lies with my willingness to be prepared and consistent.

We started with a very high energy/unruly German Shepard puppy. Our puppy responded to Tom’s training methods immediately, Tom helped teach us how to reinforce each weeks training session. We sometimes had trouble understanding/following Tom, he talks fast, but he always repeated and made sure you had time to write down the steps as they were meant to be followed and demonstrated with our puppy to show us how it should be done. At the beginning of each new training session, Tom would ask if we had concerns or questions before moving on. Tom offered suggestions to help bring order to our puppy’s unruly actions, and those suggestions are working great! Tom introduced our puppy to our pool, taught her to swim while on a leash and we swim her daily now. We are very grateful to Tom, his teaching methods are effective and we can see our puppy becoming more obedient each training session.

We had a great experience working with Tom from K9 Katelynn. Although we had considerable experience working with dogs, our two dogs which we have had for 31/2 and 41/2 years, have been tough to work with. Great in the house they were both tough on the leash and daily walks became a source of struggle and suffering. Tom did a fantastic job training us so we were able to train our dogs in a consistent and systematic way which was also totally effective. He was always on time, polite and professional with a system that really works. He knows dogs, and people too! Just a great experience!!!

From our first meeting with Tom I knew we were in good hands. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable 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 Tom's 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!
