KD revolutionized my way of thinking when it came to training dogs. His no-nonsense approach was refreshing and necessary. Through him, I was able to realize (much to my surprise) that it was ME that needed to be trained, not my dogs. Once I was able to understand what my dogs’ needs actually were and NOT what I wanted them to be, we were able to reach a whole new exciting level of training. My dogs are well balanced and extremely well behaved, and I am able to have the relationship I always wanted with them. I cannot recommend KD enough- there is no one out there like him!
Where to start… KD has been a HUGE part of our Dixie’s training and the reason why everyone that meets her either falls in love and wants to “dognap” her or wants their dogs to be like her! (Not even trying to brag but it’s true!) He’s been there every step of the way from helping us find the right breed before we even picked out Dixie to coaching us on how to properly train her into being the amazing dog she is. There are so many misconceptions when it comes to dog training and we’re just grateful that we could be willing and open to listening to KD and his lessons because his K9 knowledge seems endless. He is always there for us, 24/7, to ask advice and answer questions through our training process which has been awesome! With one conversation you can see how much he loves what he does and that is just one of the many reasons why we’re so glad we chose him!
We HIGHLY recommend KD and his blog to anyone even remotely interested in a dog trainer. You will not be disappointed!
PS … if you’re not on the “clicker” train you should go ahead and hop on! #klicknation
Working with KD has been extremely enlightening and fulfilling as I navigate training with my pit bull, Tank. In only a few sessions, KD has helped Tank become a well mannered contributor to my family and society. He is tough on me while we work, but he always takes the time to explain everything in detail and even video my work with Tank so I can see how to improve! He makes himself available at all times, which is so helpful in today’s busy world. I am extremely discriminating when choosing to work with a dog trainer, and there is no one I would recommend more than KD! My rescue Pittie and I owe KD everything!
Working with KD has given me an incredible amount of understanding when it comes to my dog and his behaviors. KD is a natural teacher with a unique style of teaching. When he says “caring for your dog, not your ego” he means it. KD will tell you what you need to hear and if you follow his direction the changes that follow are phenomenal. I’m left feeling motivated, positive and refreshed after every session Charlie and I have with KD. Highly recommend him, your money is well spent.
knew right away KD was a guy i would enjoy not only training dogs with but being around. HIs ability to TEACH and help me to understand everything we do is amazing. He will push you to be better not only as a dog owner but as a person. His classes are absolutely “you get what you put in”. Full blown honesty good or bad. When you are wrong, he will let you know. But when you are right and put in the work the results show and it’s a priceless feeling. Dog training to me quickly became a lifestyle. One thing that stood out to me and sold me to work with him as opposed to other trainers/programs was his solid character, just a guy with a good work ethic, flexible scheduling and will push you to achieve your goals with your dog. Something money can’t buy.
My dog, Whiskey, and I have been training with KD Mathews for over a year. My knowledge as a dog handler has grown exponentially. KD is a brilliant trainer, who not only cares about training your dog, but has an invested interest in teaching you how to strengthen your bond with your canine partner. I highly recommend KD Mathews, I wouldn’t train my dog anywhere else
Training with KD was nothing like I expected it would be. This guy can train dogs, sure, but what stood out was his ability to train me! I didn’t feel like a pet owner working with a dog trainer. After a few short sessions he had me feeling like a dog trainer honing my craft. Ive been able to help my friends and family now with their dogs. Thanks KD!
KD’s eBook has already started helping me with my Franklin, as has his blog. In (literally) one day, he’s already listening to me almost every time and seems way less stressed out. If you haven’t at least looked at his website, I’d highly suggest it!
