Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

If you are looking to change the course of not just your dog’s life, but your life as a dog owner, then signing up for Rocky Top K9 dog obedience training is the best solution. Me and my wife have put our Golden Retriever (Gimli) through basic obedience training classes with Rocky Top K9, and we are about to finish our Advanced training, and it has been the best decision we could have possibly made. We now have a dog that is not only obedient, but also enjoyable for us and others to be around… Not only is the training great, but the trainers are an absolute pleasure to be around. They genuinely take an interest in your life and the dog’s life and want to see you succeed. If you are going to have a dog, you should want the best for him or her. The best you could possibly do for your dog is enroll him or her in obedience training with Rocky Top K9. You will not regret it!!!!!


“Jess was our trainer for our yorkie, Duke. We absolutely adore her! She was awesome throughout the entire experience. Duke stayed with her for training for 9 days and came home a well behaved little gentleman. He’s still our sweet little boy but now with manners. I don’t know what magic she performed with him, but we are thoroughly impressed! We would use Rocky Top K9 and Jess for all of our boarding and training needs going forward. I will recommend them to all of our friends with dogs.”

“…I can now take Ruby anywhere with me and she behaves like a perfect dog. (I may be a bit biased, but I’m convinced that she IS a perfect dog!)

Ruby’s last training class was at a restaurant with Scottie and his wife Karrie and 2 of my best friends. With the exception of our group and the waiter, I don’t think that anyone else in the restaurant even knew that Ruby was under the table. We have since gone on to get Ruby certified as an AKC CGC and Urbam CGC dog.

I can’t say enough good things about Scottie, Karrie and Sandra – they are all 3 just top-notch trainers.

If you want to have a dog that is truly your best friend, that TRUSTS YOU to be the leader of the pack, Rocky Top K9 can give that to you.”

Who You Train With Matters

Your dog’s nature and your relationship determine success while training.  Let Rocky Top K9 guide you.

Quality Training

First and foremost, we are licensed and insured – compassionate, animal lovers with experience in specialty training. We want to help you enrich your life with your dog through personal obedience training. With over 30 years of dog training experience, and over 9 years serving the pets and families of our local area. We love caring, connecting with animals, and creating everlasting client relationships. We provide more than just training for your pet, we like to personalize each visit because each dog & client are unique. There’s not just one method of training that fits all dogs and we understand this. That’s why we will work with you to find the best training method and program for your circumstances. You can be assured that we are here for you and your dog will always be treated as if they were our own, receiving the highest quality care during our sessions or when in our care. Ultimately, our goal is to form support and an ongoing connection with you and your pet, that goes beyond your chosen training program.

There are many reasons why people seek out professional help with their dogs. Here are just a few examples: in general, having trouble controlling your dog, avoiding taking him out in public for fear of how he will react, pulling and dragging you while on leash, being dog or people aggressive, or just not listening to you. Or maybe there is a specific unwanted negative behavior that you need help with. Even if you’ve just gotten a puppy and want to make sure you start your new friend outright. Again, big issues or small, we’re here to help.

Finally, we train your dog and coach you, the owner, on how to continue the training. We work with you on an individual, personal, and case-by-case basis so that you and your dog will have a better life. Moreover, you’ll be a proud pet parent of a well-behaved dog. The freedom the dogs receive is a wonderful thing, you will see it in their eyes and in their attitude. Importantly, you too will enjoy this freedom as much.
