Training your dog!
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.
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.
Your Response(s) Thank you so much for the review! You took really good notes! She's a sweetheart and will give you many years of enjoyment with her!! You and your partner equally followed through with your assignments and could see the payoff! You can also see her swimming at https://youtu.be/9xh21qYFohU. Thank you!

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!
I want to thank Tom at K9katelynn for donating 3 gift cards for his amazing dog training to The Joy Bus nonprofit charity! We deliver freshly cooked meals to homebound cancer patients and Tom's generous donations has been able to help us raise much needed funds for our cause! Thank you so much!
We have 2 dogs that Tom from K9 Katelynn trained this past spring. We are so happy with how well they are both doing. Tom was able to get them both swimming and running on a treadmill--which no other trainer could do! they are better behaved and are so happy that we found Tom! He has changed the behavior of both of our dogs.
Tom is very experienced, easy to work with, and obviously loves his doggie clients.
We have an 18 month old puggle who went from knowing zero commands to listening very attentively by the end of our training. Not only did our dog get trained, but so did we as owners! Tom had us take good notes every session that way we can refer back for years to come if needed. He also taught our dog fun things to exercise her mind, and even taught her to swim and run on the treadmill. We are so pleased we hired K9 Katelynn!
When I first started working with K9katelynn I had just adopted a dog. One who was in the rescue for 6 months. I was a new dog owner. My dog (Pit Bull mix) was great with people but not so much towards other dogs. She was shy, startled easy and quick to go into fight mode. She had went potty inside, broke out of her kennel, pulled on the leash and I was scared to walk her. I was scared because everytime she saw another dog she tried to fight. Over the 1st couple of weeks with K9katelynn I was frustrated as results were so so. Towards the middle of our training the bigger picture stared to come together. My dog and I had the basics down and were working on new commands. Today my dog is more confident, knows her boundaries, listens to my commands and the aggression issues has improved a ton. K9katelyn has been amazing from working with my schedule, working on my needs along the way and guiding me through growing pains. If you want a personal touch from someone that will come to you and deliver results, then K9katelynn is the one you want.
We couldn't be happier with the results. Tom was very professional and helpful. He explained everything up front so there were no surprises. We would recommend him to anyone with a dog who needs a little fine tuning to a dog with major issues. Our dog had some aggressive behaviors which have not been an issue since the training. She learned how to sit, down, stay, place, wait among other commands. She also learned how to run on a treadmill which gives her the extra exercise she needs.
I hired K9 Katelyn to help train my australian shepherd and liked his approach of positive reinforcement. I've done dog training classes in the past, but hands down I've never learned as much as I did by going through this program. I took at least a page of notes during every session which aided me greatly when we practiced during the week. I literally feel like I have a book of knowledge now and could train any new dog on my own now. And the only reason I think I could do that is because of the copious notes I was asked to take each week during our training sessions. My dog is super well behaved, was able to learn all the skills, and is very obedient now. I can't thank Tom and K9 Katelyn enough for helping me train my dog.
