I had my 11 month Staffy with Platinum K9 for 4 weeks and I couldn’t be happier that the work the team have done with him. Kobe has been so much more relaxed since being home which has helped us spend more time together. The weekly progress updates were amazing and the handover was extremely comprehensive. Would not hesitate to leave Kobe with the team for any boarding or training needs again. Definitely recommend
I would like to recommend Platinum K9 to anyone who is in anyway concerned about the behaviour of their dog, whatever breed and at any age. I have today collected my little dog Spud from K9 under the care of trainer Luke Thompson who has helped this little man so much with firm but kind training, which so far has worked and i shall continue to do my best to keep him a good boy. I would not hesitate to use them again for whatever reason whether it be training or kennels. With best wishes from, Judy and Spud
We honestly cannot recommend Platinum K9 enough for the training they did with our dog. Our boy was reactive to both dogs and people, so taking him out was so stressful it became impossible for us. The training that Platinum K9 did with him and the results of this have been beyond amazing. We cannot believe the transformation that they have achieved. This will be life changing for him and us. It is honestly a miracle and we could not be happier. We agonised over the decision to try residential training for him and it was the best decision that we have ever made. The care that he received from the team whilst he was away was so thorough and genuine, which was really comforting to us. We were kept in the loop throughout his stay regarding his well-being and got regular updates. Thank you SO MUCH Platinum K9!
Platinum k9 are the real deal , they are so professional and courteous it astonishes me . The way they treated my German Shepard dog Tommy was so amazing and I couldn’t have hoped for better people too take care of him for the 4 weeks that he was their for… massive thanks too kyran and Tom for their help along the whole process ; these guys are so genuine and knowledgeable for such a young age !! My dog has completely changed for the better now as he is less reactive and more obedient. 10/10 , thank you guys !!

I cannot recommend the Platinum K9 enough!!! I'd give ten stars if I could. Our Twister was very nervous and reactive towards other dogs and people, we couldn't walk him anywhere without stress. Twister went for two weeks and the transformation is amazing!!! Twister is much more confident! The K9 Platinum team is the best - we can still count on their help and support - thank you!!!
Having not had a holiday in 3 years in fear of who to leave our Romanian Rescue with (Fred) , Platinum K9 was our last resort. He was extremely nervous and reactive (possibly the most nervous they had seen) but after 4 weeks managed to bond, build a relationship and train to be more confident and a joy to walk (instead of a constant battle!) . He is a different dog! Thank you P/K9 for your expert training and advice. Highly recommend and would use again without question.
I could not recommend Platinum K9 enough. Best decision we have made to ensure our dog can have the best life possible! Our boy Koda has been reactive to just about everything. People, animals, noises… everything. We send Koda to work with platinum K9 on their 4 week residential training course around 4 weeks ago.The weekly updates we received were amazing to see the results achieved within just one week. The handover was extremely thorough, we walked alongside the trainers and went through every scenario which meant we could leave feeling confident. We bought a raised bed to help with the training transferring over and to ensure Koda got his controlled relaxation in throughout the day! To say the least we are blown away with the results, we’ve been able to bring Koda everywhere with us! We’ve sat in cafes, walked through shops with him, even walks through the day without needing to feel anxious about what we’re going to encounter!! He still has some work to do with dogs, however we have the tools to help him with this and the more exposure he gets the more confident he will become! All of this has been done and he’s still the same loving boy! If anybody is anxious about sending their pup away for the first time, i felt the exact same but they cared for and loved our dog like they would their own! If you would like to reach out to me please feel free as it can definitely put your mind at ease!
Can not recommend Platinum K9 enough!!! Our boy Diesel was very nervous and reactive towards other dogs and we couldn’t walk him anywhere without experiencing issues. Diesel went for two weeks and the transformation is incredible!!! We have had him back two weeks and walking him is an absolute pleasure, I am loving our morning walks and Diesel is so much more confident, passing dogs and Diesel doesn’t take any notice of them! I can not thank the team enough, from dropping him off to the handover the team were great - thank you!!
It's been just over a month since Bailey, my incredibly reactive 2 year old GSD, visited Platinum K9. After spending two weeks there being trained by the team and Luke in particular, the change is incredible. Before, walks were filled with constant pulling and lunging/barking at cars, dogs, and people that spoke to us during walks. Now, Bailey walks to heel beautifully, hasn't lunged or barked once at cars since she's been back and is far more tolerant of dogs. While she will still react to dogs, the reactions are much smaller and far easier to stop and control using the tools and methods thoroughly explained to me during the comprehensive 3 hour handover with Luke, Leanne and other members of the team. Still trying to improve her tolerance to dogs, but that's ongoing and I now have everything I need to continue to work on that myself with Bailey on our daily walks - including plenty of confidence. Best of all, walks are no longer stressful quick trips avoiding all dog hotspots. They are now peaceful, positive and enjoyable for both myself and Bailey. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Platinum K9 to other reactive dog owners, only wish I'd done it sooner. Communication was also great as I received video updates and messages during her stay - ideal for anyone who is worried about spending weeks away from their dog.
I cannot put into words just how our boy has changed since returning from his three week residential training at K9 Platinum, the guy's have done an outstanding job with him. After taking him on as a lockdown rescue dog, he began to show signs of aggression towards people coming into our home and disobedience when out on walks. After this residential stay he is a different dog, once put on his bed he will not move off it even when one some new enters the house, he's obedient on the lead and calm. We have kept up with the hand over training and continue to build on Henry's progress. We will be forever grateful to Luke his main trainer and Tom for the work they have done with him. We are so impress with K9 Platinum we have book Henry in there kennel service when we go away.
