I wanted to leave this place a great review since I enjoyed the actual class structure and my instructor, but it is completely unorganized. DO NOT TAKE ANY OF THEIR TRAINING CLASSES. Out of the 5 weeks of prepaid classes, class was cancelled 4 times and many times without notice to the class participants. I began their open enrollment on 6/4 and have had class cancelled 5 times over the next 8 weeks from 6/4-7/30. I do not live close to this place and have taken uber there and back multiple times only to be told there was no class today. They DO NOT notify you when there is no class so you waste time travelling there and back. Classes were cancelled on 6/4 & 7/23 with no notice to students. Last week (7/23), the instructor cancelled with no prior notice to students. No students were notified before the class was actually cancelled. He also didn't hold class the week before (7/16), or next week (7/30). The next time class is scheduled is 8/6. He told us about the 7/2, 7/16, & 7/30 no classes, but did not inform anyone about the 6/4 & 7/23 class cancellation. When I got to the location, the front desk woman rudely told me there was no class and that I was informed of this last week (which is NOT true because there was no class the previous week). Just call their number and you will see how rude the front desk person is. She was even rude when taking my payment for the class.

They may have great reviews online but DO NOT waste your puppy's formative months on countless cancelled classes. DO NOT TAKE TRAINING HERE.

A great place for all!

My wife and I have taken out dogs to K9U for probably 15 years. Whenever we have adopted another dog, the trainers and partners have embraced a new member to their family and have worked on proper training and socializing.

It's so important to have a place to trust. I can honestly say our 2 dogs love it there. Our first dog, an adopted german shepherd, lived until the age of 14 and spent 2 weeks training at K9U when we first adopted her. She was quirky in who she liked, but she loved everyone at K9U.

Our current 2 adopted dogs are clingy and love being with us, but we are so proud they run off to join all their friends at K9U and never look back.

Elayne, Ruby, and Joan are awesome, plus all the staff!
Thanks K9U for all the great care and all the donated work you do for shelter dogs!
