What Our Clients Say

“Valor K9 Academy is AMAZING!” – Cheri Scandalous, Director Higher Ground Animal Sanctuary

“Amy is an incredibly skilled and knowledgeable trainer. I just spent a weekend at her house for a training retreat and was amazed by her understanding of dog behavior and how she applies her skills. I watched her work with 6 dogs, all with different behavioral issues or training goals. She was able to break down each dog’s issues in terms that made sense to all of us and come up with an effective behavioral plan for each. She is truly the pinnacle of good, fair, balanced dog training!” Kate Barcus

“Path of Hope recommends Valor K9 100%” – Caitlin Knight, Director Path of Hope Rescue

“We have been with Valor since our GSD was a rambunctious 10 week old. Amy and her staff trained not only our Roco but our family as well. We feel blessed to be a part of their pack and they are part of ours.” Kelli Jones

“Valor K9 will transform the relationship you have with your dog for the better.” – Author Nicole Williams

“One of the best trainers around. Very knowledgeable and professional.  We drove 6 hours for the training and so worth it. Loved getting updates and spending 4 hours with us at pickup to make sure we knew how to continue the training at home.” Brian Macall

Hands down this is the place to send your dog for training.” -Chris and Nikki Danna

“We found Valor K9 during our desperate search for help with our troubled mini aussie/mini blue heeler. I searched all over and kept coming back to Valor. Had it not been for Amy and her phenomenal team at Valor, our girl most likely would have been euthanized, they essentially saved her life all the while changing mine. I am beyond blessed to have taken the leap of faith with Valor and would recommend them to everyone who is seeking help with their dog. Months and months have gone by and Amy still answers our messages for a little help or guidance and has taken our puppies on weekends away when we can’t take them along. I know, without a doubt, they are taken care of and loved just as if they are home.” Emily Sandoval

“Amy is an amazing trainer! I highly recommend attending her classes with you dog!” Sam Lay
