"Emilee is so knowledgeable about every different breed of dog and sees issues then puts together a individual training plan. My Boxer Bodie just spent 2 weeks at a board and train, he is progressing so much and I really enjoy training him, that is thanks to Emilee. Best investment for your dog and family is to be part of this great training program. I am so excited to continue working with Emilee and watch how Bodie continues to turn into a well mannered obedient dog. P.S. Being a client of Smart K9 Training is you get to board your dog their and I wouldn't want my dog with anyone else."  -Carmen


"Emilee is amazing - we tried a few other training places before Smart K9 but we were not comfortable with some of the methods being used by others. We then met Emilee and loved her approach, temperament, and how she customizes her techniques and programs to each dog. Emilee was also very patient with us first time puppy pedants - she answered every email, text, and phone call with patients and understanding. although we miss her we feel perfectly at ease knowing she is with Emilee. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a training program."  -Sandy & Dean


"Excellent experience. The time spent is catered to the needs of the dog AND the parent. Positive behaviors are taught and bad behaviors are identified for both the dog and the owner. I saw results within minutes and the training methods ensure the results will last. Rawley is growing up to be an increasable male golden retriever and its in large part due to Emilee's guidance. I am looking forward to continued training."   -Scott
