Meet my dog, Max. He is the reason Almost Heaven K9 was created!
Max joined our family a few years ago, and from day 1, he ran the show. He had anxiety, pulled on the leash, destroyed our furniture, barked relentlessly and broke out of several crates. We were at a complete loss with how to help him and relieve our stress! We loved him SO much, but were at our wit's end with him.
We tried treats, harnesses, yelling NO....nothing worked. In Fall 2017, Max was hit by a car in front of our house because he ignored our yelling for him to come. Luckily he was okay, but I knew something had to change.
In Winter 2017, I stumbled on a trainer who was "miraculously" teaching dogs how to calm down and actually LISTEN to their owners! I wanted that! But it turned out, she was booked out 4 months. So I decided to study her methods and train Max myself. He transformed SO quickly, and I immediately fell in love with the process.
I looked around the state for similar training companies and couldn't find any. So I decided to see if I could help some other dogs too. I started out with a few friend's dogs, and I knew I'd found my calling!
Almost Heaven K9 Training was formed in February 2018 in my living room! My passion for helping owners and their dogs has only grown since then! I love my job, and I love helping struggling families develop a better, healthier, safer relationship with their family pet!
