I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to send my dogs to train with Next Door K9. I have only wonderful things to say about them. The way they treated the dogs, the overall training, the constant communication, and among all, the videos of their progress.

“Josh was an excellent trainer. He answered all of my questions and gave me a lot of good tools to help my rescue mix. I was very skeptical at first with the amount of "trainers" you will see online but from the moment I met him, you can see his passion for dogs. My dog was very responsive to dogs and people and would not walk on a leash without pulling the entire time. He was able to transform her into a confident walking machine. He answered all my questions quickly and sent tons of videos of the adventures they had together. Very professional and knowledgeable. Next-door K9 experience is top knock and really are the best in the area.”

“Zack and entire Next-Door K9 Solutions saved our walks! We would recommend them to any and all of our friends and families. Zack has been nothing but reliable throughout Scooter’s training and after he was returned home. Zack taught our 2.5yo (very untrained) pup how to properly walk on and off-leash, something we are SO grateful for. Not only is it amazing for us but amazing for Scooter, who can now get proper exercise without having to be fenced in. The entire training process has been a breeze. We highly recommend this team to anyone looking for dog training. Thank you!!!!

“From the moment of 1st contact to each subsequent lesson, Zach is professional and personable. There is no hiding his love of dogs or his skill as a trainer. In just a few training sessions, he has Fiona doing things that I didn't believe she'd ever do and she adores him. Can't wait to see what else Zach has in store for Fiona & me (because he's training me too).”
