” Every morning started with chaos as I made my way to the door to let my 3 dogs outside. I’m tripping over dogs, dogs are tripping over dogs, and I’m almost falling down steps to reach the door handle. Now that we’re home I notice my dogs are more patient, less demanding and respectful to me and each other. It’s adorable to watch them as they go single file out the door when I motion that they can. Mornings are much brighter. “ – Thank You Ryan!
” We can’t thank you enough for all the extra help, constant work and continuous care with Laila. You have taught her how to socialize with other dogs which in a dogs world, is very important. We know when she is with you that she is in very good hands. You are always working with our pets and I sincerely thank you so much for that! “
” We left our 3 year old Sheppard mix, Kimber, with Ryan Kwasnica for a week. The warm atmosphere, soothing music playing and an artificial fire place, made the kennel feel very homey. It was evident that Kimber was having too much fun to be missing us. Ryan’s taking the time to send us pictures put us at ease and allowed us to relax and enjoy our holiday. We have used other kennels in the past for previous dogs and none can compare to The K9 Cottage. The fee for boarding was very reasonable as well.“
” Things are progressing very well with littlest Chai. She greeted numerous other dogs with ease and grace, even groups of 3 dogs at the same time, all without incident and she seemed generally pleased with all the attention. Whatever behavioural techniques you utilized with Chai, to assist her in her ability to socialize with others dogs, has obviously worked perfectly and I see absolutely no aggressive or nervous behaviour in her mannerisms’ at all. “
Thank you Ryan!
” I had Ryan help me out with training my dog Wallace. Wallace is the first dog I’ve ever had so training was all new to me. Ryan was extremely accommodating and taught Wallace as well as myself new ways of thinking. We are extremely happy with the training Ryan provided us with and will continue to contact him in the future if need be with Wallace and/or our future pets. “
” I can not stop telling people how awesome it is to whistle train your dog!! Ryan at The Dog Mentalist helped train me and my dogs with this method and it has been a lifesaver! One of my dogs is very fearful when she gets out and it has given me such peace of mind knowing she will ALWAYS come when I blow her whistle, even in overstimulating trips to the dog park! I highly recommend giving Ryan a call and getting him to train you & your dog with this!! “
” It’s been a week now since you came to our home to help us with Teddy and we just want you to know we are already seeing some significant changes. We have all become more relaxed in our home. It’s a great start to our happy family! Thanks so much for your help! “
“ Luca loved his time there! Thanks for taking such great care of him! “
