Best decision we've ever made! Josh was great! Learning the correct command words to use improved communication between us and our hound-mix rescue. It is so much less stressful now! He gave us clear instructions for reinforcement, answered all of our questions and was reasonably priced. She was so excited to see him when he arrived at our home. The best part was watching her use the treadmill! Being able to have some outlet for her energy during these winter months saved us.
Even after the training was complete, he was available to answer our questions. Daisy is well on her way to mastering all the commands! We hope to use him in the future for the advanced training. Thanks Josh!
Josh was a complete godsend for our family! We had what we thought was an aggressive dog and we honestly weren't even sure he was trainable after a really bad incident but Champ turned out to just be a dominant dog who learned so much in the first couple sessions that we really saw a change in his behavior and happiness. We can now enjoy our family time and even take him outside off-leash which is a miracle! Completely reasonable pricing for everything Josh does. He was always available to answer any questions and was very flexible with our hectic work schedule. Highly recommended!
We are so grateful to Josh for his help and expertise. He is fun to work with, knowledgeable, gentle, and experienced. We were happily surprised to see huge changes in our dog after only a few sessions. We look forward to working with Josh again for the next level of training. We highly recommend Josh and Backcountry K9!
Josh and Backcountry K-9 have been training our 8 month old German Shorthaired Pointer for the past two months and it has changed our life for the better as well as our dog's behavior.
He no longer pulls on walks. He comes when called. He no longer jumps up on people. He goes on hikes in the woods off leash now. I can't say enough about Josh and how he went above & beyond the call of duty to help us out when we needed him. You won't go wrong if you hire Backcountry K-9 to train your dog!
Josh was prompt to our appointments, on time and spent each and every moment talking us through our training. He took a 1 year old Rotti and helped us create a fun loving, well trained and directed dog in just 8 weeks. What was even better was each week, Josh showed up and Chaos identified with him and wanted to work with him versus his own way. We would and have continued to recommend Backcountry K-9 Training to anyone who is looking. He fully impressed us with his knoweldge and patience. We look forward to bringing him back here and there to continue to keep ourselves up to date with Chaos' training.
