Client Reviews


"I can't speak highly enough about Chris and his team!"

“We thought we were doing the basics correctly but then our dog started to get aggressive on the leash and at times aggressive with other dogs. We like to take him everywhere so this was not only extremely stressful but also extremely concerning. We were recommended Chris with American dog pros, who took care of our dog during a board and train stay and I can’t speak highly enough about Chris and his team. Not only did our dog come back a completely different well behaved obedient dog, but Chris also gave my husband and I the tools for owning and training a dog that we will use for the rest of our lives. To be able to manage the behavior of your dog is so valuable and not only brings joy to my husband and I, but also to our relationship with our dog who we love so much.” 


"Chris just knows Dogs."

“We had a 2 yr old rescue dog who needed obedience training and we definitely got more than we paid for! We used to struggle with walking because he would go off after every smell and now we walk him off leash almost everywhere with better obedience and following commands than we expected. Chris just knows dogs. He understands their psychology, their motivation and their needs and uses all that together to build a relationship and train from there. We really feel like our dog is not only obedient now, but so much happier because he has freedoms he didn’t have before. And the follow-up training we receive helps train us to be the best dog parents we can be – definitely a full-service training solution for the life-long happiness of our family!!!!”


"You can tell they're passionate about dogs and care about your training goals."

“I 100% recommend Chris & Cele at Pinnacle K9. They’re both super professional, knowledgable and easy to work with. You can tell they’re passionate about dogs and care about your training goals. I did 6 private lessons with Chris for my 2 year old mixed breed dog. I now have a dog I can trust off leash. Chris communicates everything in an easy to understand way. Additionally, compared to other trainers, his training program is unique and tailored specifically to each dog. It’s quality training and everything we worked on easily translates into my every day life. If you have any doubts or need help with anything, definitely shoot Pinnacle K9 a message! You won’t regret it!!!”


"Quality training and mind blowing results."

“Where to begin? My wife and I have always enjoyed adopting from boxer rescue groups. We’ve had plenty of experience training our past dogs to include our first boxer who was deaf. So, when our recent adoption popped up that he was deaf we felt it was the perfect fit. Let’s just say, we met our match. Sadly, the previous owners who had him for the first year of his life spent no quality time training him and locked him into a kennel for 16 hours per day. This led to him being anxious and high strung in situations that most dogs wouldn’t. So, we decided to hire on the Pinnacle K9. Being impressed simply wouldn’t fully express the immediate results we saw after each session. The trainers are polite, personable and professional. Their training methods are extremely effective and well worth every penny. Thank you for the quality training and the mind blowing results.”
