Amy has an outstanding board and train program., She took our big dog from puppy to young adult now allowing him to be part of all aspects of both work and home routines. She went above and beyond making sure her training was the right fit for us and our lifestyle but most importantly our dog. Valor K9 is top notch!
I cannot say enough good signs about Amy and her training abilities. My 1 year old dog went there for the 14 Day Board and Train and I cannot believe the difference. No more jumping on people, chewing up things, or bolting. I have never looked into training before now and so glad that we did. We have a dog that actually has good manners, listens so well, and she even seems happier with herself. Amy keeps you posted the whole time, on social media ad well as personal contact via emails and test, so you feel a part of the whole process. Thank you, Amy, for everything! You are so good at what you do and so pleasant to work with!
When we dropped Billie off for her board and train and met met Amy for the first time, we could tell how much she loved dogs and training them. When it was time for us to go Amy took Billie walking, I think so she wouldn't see us going. And I thought she's in good hands, I wasn't mistaken. It's like night and day. Sue and I have talked about getting Billie a companion, I will definitely drive to Spokane (a two day trip both ways) if we ever do, so Amy can train her and the youngster gets a good education.
On a warm afternoon last fall, I was intrigued as the host of the event benefitting a local animal shelter introduced the experienced dog trainer, Amy Glunn. As she stepped onto the field, I was spellbound, absolutely spellbound, as she guided her dog through a series of commands. Within moments, I knew Amy was far beyond dog trainer. She was far beyond “trainer”…she was a teacher in every sense. She taught with Patience. Knowledge. Experience. She elicited success from her canine and human students.
Upon completion of the “board and train” time, Amy reviewed with us every detail of their stay. Amy fully equipped both our dogs and us to continue in their success. Recently, our dogs passed the certification test to become therapy dogs! Thank you, Amy!!! Because of Amy, our dogs went from rescue dogs to therapy dogs!
I called 3 places when looking for trainers for my catahoula mix, Jupiter. I knew instantly from just talking on the phone that Amy, from Valor K9 Academy was the one for us. Jupiter was a 3 month old pup that was growing fast and starting to get aggressive with me, and he played a little too rough with my 3 yr old. I started out with lessons and ended up doing the 2 week board and train. Amy worked wonders with him, and at 5 months now he is great. I was so close to having to rehome him, and now I can't imagine life without him. My 3 yr old and I (and Jupiter) cannot thank Amy enough for everything. She really did make a difference in all of our lives.
Amy did a wonderful job with our puppy Bruno! As soon as we dropped him off with her two weeks ago, I was reassured that he was in good hands after meeting her and her dogs. She has a special gift with animals and made a big difference in Bruno. He is such a good obedient and confident puppy now. He used to get so excited and jump on people, be nervous and bark around other dogs, not anymore, Bruno is still playful but he is a well mannered little puppy. And she taught him many commands and helped us learn how to best deal with him. I can't say enough with how happy I am with her! Thank you Amy!!!
Our rescue poodle Rosie was a sweetheart with us alone, but a terror to our older dog and frightened of almost everyone else when we got her. She spent one month boarding and training with Amy and her pups and she's a completely different dog. She still loves us and is as playful as ever, but now she listens and obeys when we give her commands. In addition to obedience, she has gained confidence which allows her to greet people and animals out in the community without fear or aggression. We are extremely pleased with the results and highly recommend Amy to anyone who asks.
Amy worked with our mini Australian shepherd dog for a board and train. She was able to undo all of her inappropriate year old behaviors and retrain her to be very obedient even with distractions present. Having her home for only a couple of hours, my boys were able to ride their bikes in the driveway while Sally sat and stayed. It was amazing! She used to jump on, nip at, and chase my boys but now she watches them play. Her change has been incredible and I now feel like Sally can be a larger part of our family. Sally seems to have control within herself and wants to work with us. She seems calm and in charge of her dog emotions. I am extremely pleased with her new behaviors and am very happy to have her home!
