Working with Kaylee was a wonderful experience! We are well on our way to a fantastic, well trained pup! Looking forward to the intermediate class! And once "we" get a little older the agility class will be a blast!!!

I'm so happy with the progress my dog has made. She passed her Canine Good Citizen test today. We wouldn't have reached this level without Kaylee's wonderful training skills

Kaylee is legit AMAZING to work with. Before working with her walking our small dog and our puppy who was maybe 20lbs at the time was a nightmare. Today the puppy is 70lbs and I can walk both of them easily. Kaylee is open to modifying methods to what works for your dog and doesnt try and force them into a box. She is also so understanding of the "more difficult" breeds. She never trys to make them what they arent, She loved our rottie maggie for who she was. Ive taken both the beginner, intermediate and personal classes and will definitely be taking anything else she offers!! I hardly trust anyone to care for our dogs and will bw boarding our dogs with her for an upcoming wedding. I seriously can not recommend her enough ❤️

We left our 5 1/2 month Newfie with Kaylee for 2 wks. She did a wonderful job with him! She sends daily videos that not only help with the missing of your pet, but are very informative. She is there to help even after the transition home. I highly recommend her. I will be using her in the future for any needs.

We sent our Goldendoodle for a 2 week board and train. He was about 4.5 months and really needed to work on some impulse control (like lots of puppies). This girl had him sitting and holding a stay IN PUBLIC while walking out of sight. To say that we are so thrilled with his progress is an understatement! The updates, communication, and RESULTS were just amazing!

Kaylee is an amazing trainer! She kept us constantly updated on our dogs progress during his 2 week board and train and taught us so much! I definitely recommend Canine Unifursity for all your dog training needs.

Where do I even start?! Kaylee knows what she is doing and is doing so with amazing intention and heart. She is a wealth of knowledge in this work and connects with people and their pups on a deeper level. No matter how knowledgeable she is on this stuff, she is always expanding her learning and opening her mind to new perspectives. 10/10 recommend Canine Unifursity for all your pups behavioral needs!

Kaylee has years of experience with many different dog breeds. She is well educated and has a wealth of knowledge. She welcomes your dogs into her home and treats them as her own. Highly recommend!!

We sent our one and a half year old German Shepherd for the 3 week reactivity board and train program and were blown away by the results. Prior to going through the program Kaiser was unpredictable and would lunge towards other dogs and people so we were not comfortable taking him places with us. Since going we have been able to take him camping with us and enjoy the relationship and trust that Canine Unifursity helped us build. We would highly recommend the board and train programs offered by Canine Unifursity!

I can't say enough good things about Kaylee and Jake! After reading so many different things online, I was nervous about an e-collar. But they put all of my fears to rest. The way they use it was the right decision for us. They treated our Abby like family. She loves them SO much!

We sent our 2 year old great pyrenees mix to Canine Unifursity and couldn't be more thankful for them and the work they put into Spud! After 3 weeks with them he's visibly more confident and we can take him on all the walks with confidence that he isn't going to react to other dogs/his surroundings!

Highly highly recommend kaylee and jake! They are such kind and caring people. They both did such an amazing job, sent updates all the time so i could see his progression. They worked magic, I never thought I would see my dog this well trained. They truly do have a great love for animals, I am so grateful for them!

I have a 7 month old Cane Corso named Forza who is strong-willed and likes to listen and do things on her own time-line. Kaylee and Jake were wonderful showing patience and perseverance during Forza's 2 week board/train. I really enjoyed the video updates they would send to me showing her progress.

Our dog, Comet, was born in COVID and never got any socialization as a puppy. He had a history of being super bossy, chasing small dogs, and basically running our household. Then we found Canine Unifursity! We have been soooo pleasantly pleased with the change we see in him after the 3-week reactivity program. They helped us understand the why behind his behavior, sent us daily updates and training videos, and made sure we were equipped to continue when Comet came home. It's an investment for sure, but we are so glad we did it!

We had an incredible experience from start to finish with Canine Unifursity! We had our 11 month old mini golden doodle, Lizzie, go to their 4 week board and train program. There are so many positive things I could say about Kaylee and this program, but here are just a few 🙂 -Initially, the idea of sending Lizzie away for 4 weeks felt so hard, but upon communicating and meeting Kaylee all of those reservations went away. They truly love the dogs they work with and I had perfect peace with Lizzie working and living with Jake and Kaylee! You can tell this is not just a job to them and they invest so much time, energy, and love. -The communication throughout Lizzie’s whole program was excellent. We loved and appreciated the videos of Lizzie and her training. It also greatly helped my family and I to know how we could be successful with Lizzie upon her return home. We did not know how to communicate our wants and needs to Lizzie and now we have the ability to do that-total game changer!! -I appreciated how Kaylee made sure to ask and work on the specific issues with Lizzie that were important to us. A few issues that Lizzie had that we really wanted corrected were she would not come when we called, jumping on people, pulling when lease walking. ALL of those and more have been resolved and so many new skills learned on top of those!! -Prior to Lizzie’s training with Jake and Kaylee there were so many aspects of dog ownership that were stressful and frustrating and now there is SO much JOY and EASE (for my family, our guests, and Lizzie)!! -Canine Unifursity has been such a blessing to our family and we would recommend them to any and everyone!!!!

TWINKLE is mid-transformation✨ This dog is SMART. And honestly, we get A LOT of exceptionally smart dogs because they can be the most difficult to train on your own. They spend their day thinking about how to outsmart YOU 😂 That’s where we come in as reinforcement. Twinkle has figured out that she can ignore her family when they call her & even will flatten to the ground in place to avoid it. She has learned that a fear response gets her what she wants. We’re here to help break that habit & to teach her that a great recall command is FUN! The best part about a smarty pants is that once they understand the training, they GET IT. She is going to be phenomenal by the time she returns home. ... See MoreSee Less
