We asked a few of our clients what they think of Ally K9 Academy.
Here's what they had to say:
I can’t recommend Ally K9 Academy enough! She helped us with our Kobe, he was leash reactive, barked at any dog or human that walked past, couldn’t sit still at restaurants and more! Kassidy worked so hard to make sure Kobe was ready to come home fully trained and make sure we were ready as well. We are now able to take him places we couldn’t before! She is the best and this program is the best! Thank you again Ally K9 Academy. The best in Arizona, hands down!

Ally K9 Academy has been an absolute game changer not just for my dog, August's life, but for my life as well! The knowledge and care Kassidy provides is what sets her programming apart! We have seen major improvements in his separation anxiety, leash behavior, and impulse control. I truly do not know where we would be without her! I recommend her to anyone and everyone with a dog. Whether you find your dog's issue(s) "big" or "small," Kassidy adequately guides you through it all to reach success! I am forever thankful.

I highly recommend Ally K9 Academy!! Our dog Louie completed the 2 week train and board program and returned home a brand new dog.
I couldn’t be happier with Finn’s progress and I am happy I have the tools I need to continue his training for the rest of his life! I recommend Ally K9 Academy with all my heart.
We look forward to working with Kassidy throughout all of Polly's therapy dog training. Polly is excited and so are we! We would recommend Kassidy to anyone interested in getting their dog an incredible trainer.
I can't say enough amazing things about Ally K9 Academy. I got Indiana Jones (Indi) from a rescue five years ago, and while he is a loving boy, he had some definite fear-based reactivity. And it was getting worse as time went on, and no matter how many YouTube videos I watched I still wasn't able to help him feel more comfortable around certain dogs or people. Then, he snapped at my friend's young daughter and I knew it was time for help. Kassidy compassionately listened to all my concerns and goals and developed a Custom Training Plan for Indi. I have had him do two Board and Trains, where Kassidy safely worked on confidence skills and pack training with him. It has been two months since Indi and I began working with her, and the results have been AMAZING. Just this week, Indi let three young kids pet him at PetSmart, and he was excited about it! Kassidy doesn't just coach your pup, she empowers you to have the relationship with your fur baby that you've always dreamed about. If you are reading this, you've found the right trainer for you. I wish I had found Ally K9 Academy years ago. Thank you, Kassidy!
Ally K9 Academy is the best of the best! We have used so many trainers in the past and none of them come close to Kassidy and the training at Ally K9 Academy. This training has changed our dog's life, and our lives, forever.. best investment we have ever made!!
To us Kassidy is an angel sent from heaven. What she has done with our pup is phenomenal and we will forever be grateful.
I can’t recommend Ally K9 Academy enough! Kassidy helped not only our sweet Kobe to be confident but us as dog owners to be confident! He has leash reactivity especially around other dogs and on outings. He is extremely fearful little guy and to see him look up to us for guidance and knowing we have his back is amazing! Also Kassidy is the sweetest human possible and will 100% take care of you fur baby! If you are in Arizona or surrounding areas, I highly recommend Ally K9 Academy!
Working with Kassidy at Ally K9 Academy has been the best thing to ever happen to us! Even before we took Ryder to his three-week program she was so helpful and responded to the million questions we had and continues to give us the same support and attention after his program. Ryder was adopted at about 1 and came with A LOT of energy, to say the least. Kassidy was able to help us turn his energy and anxiety into something more positive and beneficial for Ryder. Creating a calm mindset as she puts it. (: Kassidy helped guide us through the lifestyle transition into becoming better dog parents with a deeper understanding of how to communicate with Ryder. Kassidy gives you a very welcoming feeling without any judgment and you can tell that she truly loves your fur-baby and what she does. I cannot recommend her enough to anyone that will let me talk about Ryders training!! If you want someone that is honest, but kind, and listens to your needs and wants then she is 10000% the trainer for you!!

We owe so much to Kassidy and her training program! Kassidy clearly loves dogs and it shows in her training and the results. We enrolled our puppy, Marley, in 2 different group training classes, which she did well in during the class but nothing carried over to home. We had given up hope until Marley completed Kassidy’s board and train program. We could not believe the changes we saw after just the 1st day! We got photo and video updates daily on her progress and were stunned with how well she was doing. However, we were still worried about if we would be able to keep up with her training or if she would just revert to her old ways once she came home. So we were again shocked when she came home and was a more obedient and calm dog. We have referred multiple friends and have heard and seen their success stories as well. We highly recommend Ally K9 Academy, you won’t be disappointed!

When my wife and I first rescued our pit mix, Nora, from the shelter we had no idea that she had such bad behavioral issues. She had terrible anxiety, was destructive, and was aggressive towards other dogs. It got to the point where we did not know if we could keep her any longer when she started to growl at our grandson. We ran into Kassidy while she was at Lowe's giving a training lesson and asked her about her training company. She took the time to explain everything to us in detail and gave us a few helpful tips for Nora in the meantime before enrolling her in a course. That conversation completely changed our lives with Nora. We enrolled her in Ally K9 Academy's training program and crossed our fingers that things would go well. When we picked her up, she was PLAYING with Kassidy's two dogs and sitting properly for treats with no signs of aggression. We have never seen her like that before. Kassidy spent time going over everything with us and was patient with our many questions. Once we got home Nora seemed happier than ever. Her anxiety has diminished very much and she has a new desire to learn/train. We spend 30 minutes every day now training Nora and use all of Kassidy's training tools that she supplied us with. She still checks in to see how Nora is doing! I am blessed that we found Kassidy and would recommend her to anyone.

I sent my 2 mini Australian shepherds, Koda and Mac, to the 2 week train and board with Kassidy and I’m thrilled with the progress they made! Before Kassidy, Mac had no structure from his previous home and still had that puppy-like disobedience. He wouldn’t listen, constantly pulled on the leash and could barely sit on command. Now he is my little rockstar when it comes to listening! He came back a different dog when it came to obedience, and he seems overall happier with having structure. Koda had a good foundation of training before I sent her to Kassidy, but has recently been diagnosed with a seizure disorder that has brought a new set of behaviors that both Koda and I are learning to navigate. Kassidy was so wonderful with Koda and made sure she was always comfortable first and foremost during the training. She even reached out to a fellow trainer and mentor of hers who had experience working with dogs with seizures to ask advice on how she could make sure Koda was getting the best training. Koda and I both now have the tools we need to make sure she can be the happiest pup. I’m so thankful for Kassidy, so was a pleasure to work with! She was great at keeping me updated everyday on the dogs and even sent me training videos throughout their two week stay so I could see all the progress they were making. I would highly recommend Kassidy to anyone who would like to better their relationship and communication with their dogs.

Rio just completed the 8-week A+ Puppy Program and we are thrilled by the progress he has made. We came to Kassidy with concerns about Rio’s resource guarding, mouthiness, leash walking, and recall. We can confidently say that we now have the tools and knowledge to address the training challenges we struggled with. Our relationship and communication with Rio has also strengthened so that we can continue to grow together and accomplish our ongoing training goals. When Rio started Kassidy’s program he was nervous and rambunctious but he has transitioned to become a great listener. Beyond all of the training expertise we got from Kassidy, it was a joy to work with her. We look forward to continuing to send Rio to day camp at her training center and working with her in the future. We would recommend this program to anyone with a new puppy hoping to set some lasting training intentions.

Ally K9 Academy is absolutely amazing! I rescued Miller at 11 months old. He had behaviors I could not control including jumping, barking, pulling on the leash, and growling at people. I turned to YouTube for help but got nowhere. After completing the board and train program with Kassidy, I could not believe the changes I saw in my boy. After the first few days he no longer pulled on the leash and his recalls were AMAZING! Then, by the end of the first week, he was letting kids and adults pet him! I was nervous once Miller came home but everything Kassidy taught him stuck. His jumping has improved significantly, he responds immediately to commands on and off leash, and stays by my hips when I take him on walks! Kassidy has done such an amazing job training Miller to be a happier, more confident puppy! She still checks in to see how he is doing and gives me the support and tools I need to keep his training going. I highly recommend Ally K9 Academy, Kassidy is outstanding!
