Jake did a great job with our 1 year old Doberman. Our Dobe actually listens to us now which we weren't sure would ever be possible after puppy school with another company. If you hire Jake, LISTEN to him! I can't emphasize enough how important it is to keep working with your dog once they come home. We would certainly work with Jake again in the future.
Couldn’t say better things about A Leg Up K9 Training and Jake. My dog wouldn’t listen to a word I said until I brought him here and now he listens to everything. Brutus is a rescue dog and after the training he is so much more calm and obedient. Wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else to be boarded either!!! This training is amazing!!!
Jake/A Leg Up K9 did such a great job with our Goldendoodle Myles. Myles doesn’t bark or jump anymore, and he’s only 7 months old! Jake provided us with a detailed follow-up visit to allow us to duplicate his instruction on our own, which was super empowering. He provided us with our own training tools to utilize as well, and taught us how to use them. It feels great to have a such a well behaved dog. All our friends rave about him!
We had an excellent experience with Jake he offers complete Obedience training. He is very thorough and follows up with in home training for the owners. You won’t find a better person or more knowledgeable instructor to deal with than this guy. Top notch!
My husband and I had a very stubborn pit bull. Jake was AMAZING! After four weeks of training, Jake had turned our hard headed pup into a roll model dog. Jake was always there to answer any questions we had and was very patient with us along the way. He was very easy to talk to and gave us a TON of extra information. His services are worth so much more than the price he charges! He did a great job. We could not have asked for more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
