Had great success and help from good folks that are extremely knowledgeable and empathetic to the needs of our pupper. 3 weeks since we started training and I am amazed at the improvement. We have the specific tools to keep his training ongoing (which we will) but how he behaves now is so well that I would have not needed training if he had been like this last month. Seriously worth the price which was reasonable

The staff at Kranky K9 have been AMAZING! Our pup, Bo, has been through the new puppy training and the Walk Dr training and it is now super well-behaved compared to the "T-Rex" we brought in on day 1! Our Bo also LOVES going to daycare with friends at Kranky K9!

Our experience with KK9 was the best investment we made bringing home a rescue puppy. Joel was our puppy's trainer and worked wonders and helped our family bond even better with our dog. Thanks to both of these brothers for their expertise and professionalism. It changed our lives!

Can't say enough good things about KK9. We had an aggressive, stubborn Husky and after working with Bo we have a well-behaved, social dog that is a four-legged member of the family. The communication from start to finish and afterwards was above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. I'd rate them 10 stars if I could!

I cant say enough good things about Bo and his team. Their training ideals are practical and effective methods easily adaptable to each individuals household groove. Plus, the genuine love and respect for the animals is evident in each member of the staff. I'm happy to have them as a resource; helping me shape a wild pup into a strong, confident and well rounded animal.

What a great place to get control over a feisty furry friend! Our dogs are coming around after going through the Kranky K9 program. We were able to attend our first Social Hour, yesterday, and it was wonderful to see the dogs running around and having a fun time. Definitely worth every penny!

Bo took a rescue dog that I was ready to put down, had made the appointment in fact, because this dog had already nearly killed my other dog, bitten a number of people, and often threatened to bite me. He took this dog for 4 weeks, socialized the dog to be around other canines, gave the dog discipline and boundaries, and then trained me in how to maintain this discipline and boundaries, and he saved the life of the dog in the process. I can't say enough good things about Bo.

We just finished the Complete Companion package and could not be happier! We chose this because I needed just as much training as my dogs did. We have 2 rescue pit mixes that are very different. Matheny is calm and timid and Rosie is kinda crazy! Rosie had lots of issues like bolting at the door, pulling on walks and barking at EVERYTHING just to name a few. Matheny is a follower so his issues didn't start until we adopted Rosie. Bo and Bre have helped us so much and I am so grateful. To be honest before we started we just didn't go for walks or take the dogs anywhere because it was so frustrating for us. We are now able to take a walk in the neighborhood or go to the park. I was not confident at first that they could master off leash but it has gone much better than expected. Rose is not perfect yet but 99% better than 3 months ago! Our next step is getting them social with other dogs again. As happy as I am with how much better they listen my favorite change is seeing how Rosie trusts us now. She was always very guarded, did not play much and tended to lay off on her own at home. Rolling over and exposing her belly was something she never did in the 2 years we had her. Tummy rubs and playing tug with Matheny are her favorites now! She also loves snuggling with me and the kids. Thank You! Thank You! Kranky K9 for helping us and bringing us closer as a family. I will be recommending you to anyone who needs help with their dogs.

Bo and Bre are simply the best in the area. Thoughtful, energetic, and know how to pass on their knowledge. Do the homework and you will have a more confident and obedient dog. Special thanks to Aunt Kat's Pet Grooming for recommending them.

After looking through reviews for training options in the area, I chose Bo and Kranky K9's Nearly Naked Program. I was looking for an expert to help me learn to harness the focus of my 6 year old border collie, and I found it here in O'Fallon. I feel I was able to gain the knowledge and confidence to continue to work with my dog even after completing this specific program. The e-collar is such an amazing tool and is included with the program. Bo and his team were very flexible in re-scheduling class times. I would highly recommend Kranky K9 to anyone looking to correct issues with their pet or to anyone looking to build their relationship with their dog.

Bo did a wonderful job with my 1 1/2 year old golden retriever mix who attended Kranky K 9's boot camp after showing aggression towards my sister's 15 yr. Old dascuhund. My dog loves Bo and the staff at Kranky K9. He now knows his commands and is a great walker! Bo explored the dogs background and was able to explain the reason for my dog's behaviors as well as teach me new ways to interact with my dog. Bo's knowledge and skills are impressive and I highly recommend Kranky K9 to anyone. Best of all, my dog is now "buddies" with his cousin and we no longer need gates up to separate them. We are happy to have the pack back again. Thank you Kranky K9...your the best! Mary

If I could give 10 stars I would. Bo and Bre are extremely knowledgeable and take the time to not only train your dog but train you to be a good dog handler. I had done my research as well as asked for recommendations for trainers and they came highly recommended. They definitely exceeded my expectations. My dog completed the 3week boarding. Bo is very honest with you and will guide you through the best option. I cannot recommend them enough!

It has been almost 6 months since I picked my German Shepherd up from Kranky K9. Bo and his staff did a great job training her and myself. They have gone above and beyond. 6 months later, it's almost as if she left yesterday. Their training of her and myself, has made a long lasting impression on her.

Very Impress with the training received. I had a super high spirited Jack Russell Terrier that many people told me her behavior couldn't changed and she would always be super excited. So I scanned the web looking for the best trainers I could find in the area. Bo and Bre are the K-9 trainers and they both have been outstanding! My dog has made more progress then I ever thought possible. Not only did Bre and Bo teach us ( my dog and I) all the basics but went way beyond and address every problem I questioned them about. I can walk my dog off leash which I would have never imagined could happen. Overall, I couldn't be more satisfied with the training. I'll admit half of battle was training me to do the right thing. If you really want to have a well behave dog this is the place to go. They really do care about you and your pet

We acquired a Lab mix named Buddy 3 1/2 years ago and although he is very well mannered, he had a few behaviors that needed to be tweaked. We love to take him hiking and camping, but always wanted to allow him to roam free on the trail without running off. After many times at failing and chasing our dog thru the woods we had enough. I was introduced to Bo Harrison and told him about our concerns with Buddy. He set up a free in-home consolation and immediately saw the potential in Buddy and started to "train us" in our role. We set up the personal training with Bo and within the first 2 weeks we have seen a huge improvement in Buddy. Bo has been very thorough in explaining each training session and what to do when we get back home. We are looking forward to the day that Buddy can have some freedom when we go hiking without the worry of losing him.

Bo is a great trainer. When I got my Siberian Husky I knew I would have to do obedience training but I wanted to find the right trainer since Siberians are notoriously stubborn. After meeting with Bo and hearing the comment that "just because somebody doesn't know how to do it, doesn't mean it can't be done" I knew he was the right trainer for my dog. Stoli is 10 months old now and is turning out to be a great dog thanks in part to everything I've learned from Bo and his training classes.

I learned so much about dog training, and Bo's methods are very simple if you stick with them. I never thought I'd be able to get my dog to do things like sit and wait for his dinner until I tell him it's ok to eat. I learned the importance of pack activities, such as walking, for building a cohesive pack. I would recommend Bo to anyone. He truly loves the dogs he trains and puts so much time and effort into every dog he works with - and the owners!

Bo Harrison is an absolute miracle worker. I have a 2 year old Labrador that I swore was defective. My dog came to live with my family and myself shortly after my favorite dog was killed. I rushed into bringing her home out of grief. She was 15 weeks old when I brought her home. She was older and did not bond with me or my children at all. I told myself that by purchasing this dog, I had made a commitment to her to care for her for the rest of her life and I was gonna make it work. 2 years went by of sheer chaos. She wouldn't listen. She had accidents in the house and being seemingly potty trained. She would cower and pee when my husband got up out of his chair or moved too quickly. She chewed everything. The list could go on and on. Those things being said, I have experience with dogs with behavioral issues. So I'm not new to this kind of thing. I figured with exercise and basic training at home we could work it out. Lord Jesus, was I wrong. It just got worse. I was to the point I wanted to place an ad to find her a new home. I knew Bo before he started training dogs and he was a pretty awesome guy. And when I found him on Google, I had no idea it was him. I was very pleasantly surprised! BO HELPED ME LIKE MY DOG! A dog that I was ready to quit on. (Side note-Bo also works with rescue dogs for the humane organizations. He has probably saved hundreds of dogs by teaching them to have manners.)The very first visit was a little tough love bug after that I was shocked at how fast my defective dog was catching on. Dog school is just as much about you as it is about your dog. Harlow sits now. She's two and a half and before I went to see Bo, I could not get her to sit. Not even for food. Now we are working on sit/stay. Like "stay your butt on the platform while I go in the other room to do laundry and your butt still better be on the platform when I get back" STAY. I would have never thought in a million years that would happen. I've worked with a another trainer in Shiloh and his method is way too harsh for my taste. The way Bo trains dogs is more like a relationship building process. He will help you make your dog want to make the right choice and please you. Well,now that you've read my dogs life story, I hope you will choose to go see Bo. He's a pretty awesome guy in general and he can help you build the happy relationship with your dog that he has with mine.
