Client Testimonials

“If anyone is in need of a trainer, I highly recommend 4 Paws K9 Training. Before hiring Bill at 4 Paws my Bully was aggressive with anxiety, after his 6 weeks of training Prosciutto follows his commands and is now able to go in public with no anxiety of aggression. We took him to Tractor Supply and he let people approach and pet him, before Bill at 4 Paws Prosciutto would have taken your hand off if you came close.”

“Bill has a gift, he trains us to do the best for our dogs. Bill understands behaviors and after just 6 classes our beloved Cooper is calmer and behaving. I can’t say enough”
