Did you Know?


Our family is very grateful to John for his coaching. Being first time dog owners and getting a young puppy, we were a bit overwhelmed with the amount of work that it added to our lives. John helped us train our puppy obedience skills, helped us understand dog's behavior, answered countless questions about feeding, training, exercising, and taking care of the dog, helped our two cats make peace with the dog. John gave us knowledge and piece of mind to get things under control and actually enjoy our puppy. Our puppy Bella adored John, was super happy to see and learn from him and amazingly was on her best behavior for 2-3 days after each lesson. John is a very talented dog trainer and great communicator for dogs and humans

John was amazing not only watching poe, giving her long walks, and taking tons of great pictures, but also with communication and his flexibility of coming over and walking her even though I was gonna be home soon after but he walked her so I wouldn’t have to.

If I could give 10 stars I would! John K is absolutely the best! I am a new dog owner of an 8 year old mix and had never used a professional service before, so had some trepidation on what to expect and how my dog, Kenai, would react. Immediately upon the "meet and greet" John put me at ease and Kenai fell in love with him.  John not only gave me reports and many wonderful pictures he helped me with training techniques, and more importantly I felt like he sincerely liked and connected with Kenai.  Thank you so much John!

He knows his stuff and was so helpful for our big derpy Vader pup! Excited to have him for private sessions as Vader ages! His training is all about positivity!

John was amazing with our teenage dog. He was always prompt and professional. He was very responsive to our individual needs and gave us exercises to practice that were reasonable and effective. John was always accessible for urgent issues through email and text. Our dog had behavioral challenges and John was creative and competent. I would highly recommend John and Dogsmart. John really went above and beyond for us!
