Reviews of K9 Kenny
Ken is a life saver! And his talent was evident from the start of our first session. I heard about him in a "word of mouth" old-school way after researching all the big name dog training businesses around town online, and I could not believe how fair his prices were, how flexible he is about scheduling and how much access he gives you -- allowing you to contact him whenever you have questions. He helped us identify what our dog, Sussman, who is a rescue, needs to feel safe and function better. When Ken first came over, I was at my wit's end dealing with my sweet dog's fear-based aggression. At the end of our first discussion, he told to me have faith -- that it would all work out. What I realized in that moment is that he had given me hope. (As cheesy as that sounds.) She has made incredible strides, and despite our crazy schedules, he has worked with us to make it happen. I am so relieved we called him! ~ Cadien A.
Ken has been amazing with our 2 West Highland Terriers, Penny and Max. They had no formal training and pulled relentlessly on their leashes on every walk, besides lots of barking and they were just plain unruly. His consistent, focused and attentive style of training is just what our family needed so that our dogs were not as headstrong. Ken has an incredible grasp of assessing the family dynamic to know how to work with the dogs in their environment. We are grateful for meeting Ken and so are Max and Penny.~ The Barber Family
Ken has been great! My pup Gemma (aka Hippo, aka Albino Rhino) and I have had five sessions so far and Gemma and I are both learning a LOT! Ken is incredibly responsive, flexible, and has provided us with so much help and knowledge. Gemma's behavior and skills are improving more and more every day. Thanks Ken!!!~ Gina S.
K-9 Kenny. We were looking for someone to come to our home and offer individual lessons. He takes the time to learn about your dog's background and specific needs, and then comes up with a plan for you and your dog to learn together. We saw immediate results with our 3 year old adopted German Shepherd and had fun along the way. Kenny is very professional, great with dogs, and is committed to making it a positive experience for both you and your canine companion. One of the best investments you can make.~ Michael R. - South Austin
Kenny was very patient and knowledgeable with his training techniques with my dog. If a certain strategy didn't work he always knew of others that would. Very please with how my dog is learning and behaving.~ Denise R.
At K9 Kenny my mission is to see that every dog owner I work with ends up with a well-mannered, obedient and happy dog. Too many dog owners are frustrated by owning an unmanageable dog and instead of seeking training to resolve the situation, they just stop walking the dog altogether. This usually leads to the dog becoming that much more difficult. It can be a vicious cycle and it’s one I am determined to stop! Using my proven effective teaching and training skills, I teach you to train your dog. This results in a powerful owner-dog relationship and ensures that the training sticks. Working together, we teach your dog to be obedient and respectful by introducing structure and discipline. My methods address resolving behavioral issues as well as teaching basic and advanced obedience. I always see to it that the training sessions are not just effective but fun as well as training should be an enjoyable experience for both owner and dog alike!
Why Training Your Dog is Essential
My name is Kenny. I am a certified dog trainer in Austin, Texas. People often ask me how important it is to get their dog trained. Here is what I tell them:
A trained dog helps make for a happy and harmonious household. There are three things a dog needs to live a happy life: physical exercise, mental exercise and communication. It is communication where training enters the equation. Dogs need to know the rules and need to know who is in charge. Without structure they are easily confused and this usually leads to unwanted behaviors. When you walk your dog he should be heeling by your side not pulling six front feet of you. That will help avoid unnecessary confrontations with other dogs. When you come to a door your dog should automatically sit and wait for you to allow him to go through the door. If you drop food on the floor your dog should look to you for permission to eat it. When guests visit, your dog should not jump on them. Basic obedience training will set the ground rules and create good behaviors while helping to eliminate the unwanted ones. Once your dog knows you are his friend and have his back but are still the unquestioned alpha dog, communication will have been established. A trained dog is indeed a happy dog.
