Our Training In Action
“This company and their results are the REAL DEAL!! I have an entirely different dog. She can walk on a leash with me now, she isn’t barking at cars or lunging at people. She responds to every command. But more importantly, I have become a better dog parent with their coaching and training. When I need help, Jenna responds to my texts quickly and gives me tips and tricks for a better result. I can’t thank them enough Remi, and I are so happy, and I greatly appreciate K9 Valor Academy!!”
“Me and my dog Zinnia have had a great experience with Valor over the last year. Zinnia started with puppy classes, moved on to basic obedience training and finally a few sessions of private training with Trainer Jenna. Everything has been wonderful and I constantly get comments about how well behaved my dog is. After our foundation of training as a puppy and basic obedience it was great to see those skills come into play during our personal training sessions. Jenna is wonderful to work with, super responsive, structured, understanding and great with Zinnia. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ all the way!”
“We found Valor K9 during our desperate search for help with our troubled Mini Aussie/ 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.”
“I can not give a high enough review to Valor K9. My puppy Moto started training with Amy at 5 months old. Under the expert guidance of Valor K9 he has become a confident happy puppy. He has overcome his fear of dogs and people and is well on his way to becoming a great dog. We will continue to train with Amy until we run out of classes to take!!”
“About three months ago I decided my one year old German Shepherd mix was very badly in need of training. After doing research about the companies in Spokane, I decided to contact Valor K9. Since meeting Courtney for the first evaluation I’ve had a great experience and so has my pup Pistol. We’ve done six out of eight lessons so far and he’s a completely different dog at home, in public, and on the leash. Pistol was reactive to dogs and strangers (not aggressive, he was just very excited to meet everyone), was selective about listening, and dragged me around with the leash. Even after the first lesson he was so much better at listening, and he gets so excited when we pull up for training. Thank you so much Valor K9 & Courtney, Pistol and I love working with you guys!”
“I have two very stubborn Mastiffs and I cannot speak highly enough of Courtney training me to train my dogs. There were definitely moments of wanting to give up, but she was there answering any questions I had and showing me the proper way to train and correct their behavior. We had a breakthrough today and I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I highly recommend Courtney to come into your home and show you how your life can be much happier for you and your fur babies. Thank you so much!!!!!”
“We were referred to Valor K9 Academy by our vet to help work with our reactive Boston Terrier, Norman. Dana was absolutely wonderful!! After private lessons, Norman is like a whole new dog! The lessons each week came with small goals that added up to big changes. If you’re looking for guidance with your dog’s training, I can’t recommend Valor K9 and Dana highly enough!”
“We worked Skye and she did such a great job making sure we understood what we needed to do so we could communicate effectively with Denali. Denali has made leaps and bounds in her long-distance recall, proper heel position, manners when meeting other dogs or when people come to the door and so many other things. More importantly I feel I have a foundation to work on other behaviors. It was definitely worth the hour commute to Medical Lake and I certainly know that Denali is better because of it.”
“Valor K9 did an amazing job with our dog Wally. He knew some basic commands already (sit, stay) but there were a few habits he had around barking at dogs on TV and tugging on his leash that were hard to break. Meg (our trainer) asked us to create a wish list of things we’d like her to work on with him as a part of their “Good Dog” board and train program. She surpassed our expectations and took care of what was on our list. She even trained him to use the treadmill and walk himself! Who knew?! It’s still early since we’ve gotten him back home but we like the progress we’ve seen so far and would recommend Valor K9 Academy to anyone looking for a trainer!”
