Bryn, the previously very boisterous Boxweiler, has been home a month since his 4 week residential training and I couldn't be happier with the impact the training has had on him. We've gone from carefully choosing where and when we walk in order to avoid triggers, which used to cause him to get over excited and then frustrated, to being able to walk anywhere, anytime. He's not excited by other dogs, even if they are reacting to him, or people, bikes, scooters, skateboards. He takes it all in his stride. Greeting house-visitors is ongoing (he's half-boxer, after all) but a massive improvement from where he was and he continues to be calmer each time. He's lost none of his personality and character and is clearly a much happier dog with a much happier owner too! Great handover to me by the team when I picked Bryn up after his training; they have really set us up for success and are always available for advice/encouragement if needed. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending.

I cannot thank Jon and the team at Platinum K9 enough! My 2 year old German Shepherd Jax was extremely reactive to people and dogs which lead to our walks being very stressful and got to the point where I would dread taking him out! I really was at the end of my tether with him, having multiple trainers and nothing seemed to work, so I got in touch with Platinum K9 and arranged for Jax to attend their 4 week residential training course. I received weekly video updates to see how well he was getting on with his training and it really showed the amazing bond Jax had with the team. Jax has now been home for 4 weeks and I can honesty say our walks with him have totally changed for the better, we are now in control! We now enjoy going to busy places that we used to avoid, even taking him to his first beer garden which he handled brilliantly. He definitely tested us the first couple of days back home and still pushes us at times on walks, but with the foundations the team put into place for us to build on, which was explained to us over the amazing detailed hand over we received, we are soon able to get him back focused on us instead of the distraction. And I know Jon and the team are always at the other end of the phone if we ever need any advice! If anyone out there is struggling with their dog like we were please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team. It has completely changed my life for the better, the change in Jax is amazing too, seeming so much more happier and relaxed on his walks!

Jon and the team have been such a pleasure to meet and leave our cockapoo (Murphy) with for 3 weeks. We felt they always had us and Murphy as their main priority and dealt with him in a personal way, flexing their training methods to help him learn in the way he responds to best without over stressing him. I honestly believe our dog is probably as difficult as they come, so for them to care for him daily with the compassion and patience that they have means the world to us.

I cannot put into words just how amazing the change in our extremely reactive GSD is following residential training with PlatinumK9. The team have put in place the foundations for us to build on with their ongoing support. If like us you tried other classes or one to one trainers with no success then believe me there is another option. The team at PlatinumK9 are amazing.

If I could give more stars I would! After just 4 weeks of training our dogs have become a pleasure to walk , not attacking other dogs or people. We now have to beautiful dogs that can be taken out and walked without any stress whatsoever. Will definitely recommend.

We have two Weimaraner’s Gino & Belle who became totally unruly , reactive , they had no boundaries and we just couldn’t get control of them, walking just didn’t happen it was to stressful and the joy of having them slowly diminished over time. So we contacted Jon at platinum k9 who from the first conversation you totally got that he knew what he was talking about as we were totally out of our depth! Since their residential I can honestly say thanks to Jon and there trainer jake, we now have control of them both, and the ability to be able to communicate with them both, we have the ability to deal with situations that may come our way. We can now walk them together through town and parks with out the anxiety’s previously experienced . They go to their beds and stay there till we tell them other wise controlled relaxation has given us the peaceful calm home that we never had previously. Yes you have to be committed else what’s the point , but if you commit and persist it pays off , we now have a established routine and the enjoyment of having them the way it should be . Can’t thank these guys enough for all they have done ! 🐕❤️

Can't recommend enough!!!! AMAZING. Our beautiful German shepherd Luna, who was just over one year old at the time, went to platinum k9 for 4 weeks this September for their residential training programme. She had extreme reactivity around other dogs, which was causing a massive stress on all of our lives (including Lunas). We were a bit nervous about it as we’d tried a residential programme before that hadn’t helped and it is a pretty big investment - but honestly it’s the BEST thing we ever did! Words can’t even do justice to how incredible the team at Platinum K9 are. From the training video update we got on week 1, she was like a different dog! She’s been taught how to handle herself on walks and we’ve been taught how to handle her reactivity, which is honestly a miracle! Since we’ve been home our lives have completely changed, now we both look forward to walks with her and she really is happier than ever!!! We often think back to how she used to be and we just can’t believe the impact they had after just 4 weeks with her. We can’t thank Platinum K9 enough, particularly Jon, and Kiran who was her trainer - you guys are amazing! We cannot recommend anything more than this, especially if you’re struggling with your dog and starting to feel like there’s no hope - these guys will show you that there is!! We of course still have our wobbles but we know how to handle them now and are excited to keep improving with Luna as time goes on! Thank you again, you really did change our lives and gave us all our smiles back! 🙂 We've also since introduced Luna to my parents new puppy and been out for walks together which would never have been possible before!! THANK YOU!
