Bo and staff have helped my dog become more confident and social in just a few weeks, and have given me the tools to continue his progress at home. My dog was happy and well cared for during his all-day training with Bo. I highly recommend Kranky k9 for training, boarding, and daycare.

Extremely helpful with my defensive dog after just 4 weeks, with ongoing free training available for life. Every staff member is friendly and professional and I felt like my dog was loved and well cared for. The price per hour of the services are reasonable. I highly recommend Kranky K9.

Bo and the staff have helped my skittish and defensive dog become more confident and at ease with new people and situations, and they have given me the training to continue to practice with my dog. Every person my dog or I interacted with has been friendly and professional, and they are very loving to the dogs. Each dog is taught with rewards that he or she responds best to. The price per hour of their service is very reasonable. I highly recommend this business for training, day care, and boarding.

We used Kranky k9 for our new standard poodle when she was a puppy. I’ve never owned a big dog and wanted to make sure we got her the training she would need to be a very well behaved dog. I am sooooo thankful for Kranky k9 because we have the most lovable and well mannered dog! ?? Sami looks forward to going to daycare now because she gets to see all her favorite trainers!!!!

We just wish they were closer...we drive 4 hours (round trip) just to let her visit once a week for daycare. Only place we would even think of boarding her.

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

Kranky K9 and crew did an amazing job helping our dog through some issues of being so scared of many things, socialization, and just realizing what he needs to be doing and when! Joel and Bo know how to read each dog so well and initiate a training specific to that dogs needs, and most importantly explain and help with what the owners should concentrate on and do to make the most out of your board and train. The information provided for homework and the videos they offer area very helpful as well! Great experience and has been great for our dog Cash! He loves going there for daycare, Cash gets excited each day he arrives seeing the staff!

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.

I met with Bo at Kranky K9 soon after getting our new puppy. I was looking for guidance on how to train a dog, as this was my first dog I would be training on my own and I was feeling completely overwhelmed. We had a very informative consultation and I picked the training that worked best for us. Not only did they train my dog, but they taught me how to be a great dog owner. They spent time answering all of my questions and explained WHY we do what we do when training a dog. I can't wait to continue training our little guy with all of their tips and tricks. I cannot recommend them enough!

Having a 90lb Doberman, we knew we wanted to have a well behaved & trained dog. Bo and his team at KK9, did just that! They worked with Ziggy for 4 weeks and then we got our turn for training! Each session built on what we learned the week before and we would work on "homework" through the week. Consistency is key. Bo is able to explain the thought behind the training in a way that makes so much sense! At 1 year old, Ziggy is still very much a puppy but we have a sweet boy we can control and feel very comfortable taking out in public! Thank you Kranky K9!

**ATTENTION**.... If you are searching for an incredible dog trainer, outstanding “human” trainer, and amazing business owner search NO MORE! Seriously, Kranky K9 is where you and your dog want and need to be! Due to a previous negative experience with a dog trainer, I had several questions, concerns, and was hesitant to invest this amount of money once again. Bo exhibited great patience and professionalism when addressing my concerns. Daisy and I recently graduated and had the pleasure to get to know Bre at our first social. I was astonished when they played the training videos and utterly speechless when they brought Daisy into the training room to show me everything she learned. Kranky K9 personally trains the owner once the dog has been trained and provides written instructions on how to continue training. She now is such a joy to work with and loves the attention and confidence she gains during our practice sessions. My friends are amazed at her progress! Bo and his entire team surpassed my expectations! Bo’s knowledge and experience enabled him to combine my expectations, the personality of my rescues, my financial ability, as well as, assess the level of training I needed, to best place them in one of his programs. Lexi, my two year old shepherd mix is patiently waiting for her turn to learn from Bo, Bre, and Joel, along with all the excellent staff! We absolutely love Kranky K9 and are so very blessed to have them in our lives. We look forward to the weekly structured socials and training sessions to reinforce training so we may continue to have well behaved, happy, and confident pups! THANK YOU Kranky K9, we are furever grateful!

Kranky K9 is the best investment you can make in your pet. Not only that, but you develop so much patience and learn skills you can carry over to future dogs. I worked mostly with Bre and she was awesome. She accommodated the classes to help with any problems I had the week before. And after the training ends, you can keep going to socials and group classes. Any dog can benefit from this training—definitely would recommend this to any dog owners!

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

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.

Thanks to them my guy is picking up skills left and right that have him well on his path to a future in therapy work...and I've picked up several skills myself that I NEVER would've thought of without them.

I sought out Kranky K-9 when I felt like I was at a breaking point with my sweet hound dog Sunshine. I adopted her at age 5 from a shelter and she suffered with some serious anxiety. She is such a kind dog, but would totally flip a switch when I tried to put her in her kennel, and in any new situation. She rushed the door when friends came over, jumped up on the counter, would run away if she got off the leash, and often paced around the house panting and crying. I had tried to do some amateur training of my own, but it seemed like Sunny just didn't know how to listen or respond. I sent her to boarding school after meeting with Bo, feeling very positive, but also a little unsure. Now we are one week post-training and I cannot believe the amazing strides that Sunny has made toward becoming a better listener. Bre and Bo were so wonderful throughout the whole process, making sure that I stayed updated via Facebook while Sunny was at boarding school, and answering any and all questions that I have had since then. I can tell that they really love Sunny (and every dog that they work with) and they are genuinely invested in both Sunny and I living a better life. They are so thorough in explaining the lessons when I am there working Sunny, and they are very clear on how to take this lesson home and keep improving on the skills that she learned during her time there. I live in Florida during the year and Bre and Bo have even been kind enough to offer virtual lessons if I were to ever need their assistance in the future. Going into this, I thought that Sunny would never be the kind of dog who would sit and stay when friends come to the door - but now she does that and MORE. If you are feeling like giving up on your dog, DON'T!! Take them to work with Bre and Bo - the investment is MORE THAN WORTH IT. Our lives have improved greatly and our home is peaceful now. I could not be any more grateful for Kranky K9.

Bo and his trainers at Kranky K9 are the absolute best. I put my Molly in their 4 week boot camp and she came home a different Molly. A much better and improved Molly. My time with her now is more enjoyable because she is so very well trained and, we are both so much more relaxed. I am able to take her to pet friendly events with me and she is so well behaved. Even other people who are there with their dogs comment on how well trained she is and ask where I had her trained. Always happy to give a shout out to Kranky K9 because they deserve it. If there were more than five stars I would happily give them to Bo and his team of tremendous trainers. They have changed my and Molly's relationship so much for the better. Thank you all.

Before visiting Bo and Bre at Kranky K9 I had a dog that would bark at anything, bolt at the door, and was rude to anyone who came over. Now as I sit on my Patio she is sitting next to me with no leash while she watches kids play basketball and I haven’t heard a peep from her! I have never seen her so calm, it’s absolutely amazing the change I have seen in her! My fiancé even was amazed earlier when I left the screen door wide open and went to get the mail she never left her spot at the door!

We were at our wits end trying to figure out how to control our 2 Australian Shepherd siblings!! They were extremely hyper and started to fight with each other out of jealousy. I was ready to find a new home for one of them. They controlled our house.....that is until we started our lessons with Bo and Bree. They taught us how numerous techniques to keep them happy and well behaved. It is like night and day!! The obedience training was well worth the time and money invested. We now enjoy our dogs more than I ever thought we would. We love walking them every evening on a leash and they are much happier too! Many thanks to Kranky K9!! Maggie and Finn thank you too!!

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

This is money well spent. I contacted Kranky K9 for dog and human aggression. I was pregnant and my dominant pit became even more protective of me. I also had concerns about my dog around a newborn. Kranky K9 was able to surpass my expectations and teach me valuable training techniques. The improvements my dog has made are amazing. Not only is the obedience worth the money but the bond that develops between you and the dog is like no other. I've called kranky K9 on several occasions since our lessons and they've always been so helpful. I would recommend them for all types of behaviors- anxiety, timidness, destructiveness, anything and everything they are your go to.

I love Kranky K9's method of training. The e collar is a new tool for me, but it has been very effective.

Bre and Bo were great! Bre went above and beyondfor my dog Autumn and I couldnt be more happy with how things turned out. She is overalll much more calm, obeys commands, and can heel off leash and more! Highly recommend them! My dog now has more freedom and its all due to their patience, skill, and love they show all their students! Thank you Kranky K9!!

Bo helped change my aggressive/reactive, stubborn dog into a reliable, well-trained, friendly dog. He used to try to kill dogs on site, now he can go to doggie daycare. He has a strong prey drive, but now is trustworthy off-lead. Hands down, best investment I've made!

Bean is my 1 year old bully-breed terrier mix who is always eager to give love to anyone who will give her a belly rub. As a first-time dog owner, I wanted to ensure that Bean was well-trained/well-mannered. On day one, I remember Bo telling me that the 10 week program was like a college course... and he wasn't kidding!! I was nervous at first, but Bre and Bo have such a great program, and are so extremely knowledgeable, that we were able to be successful. Bean and I (and Bre and Bo!) worked hard, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I never even dreamed of having a dog heel/walk next to me LEASH FREE. I was also excited to learn not just how to train my dog, but the psychology behind it, the WHY to what we were doing, and the steps we were going to take to reach our goals. A complete experience. I cannot thank them enough!! Bean and I will miss our early (and chilly!) Saturday mornings with Kranky K9!

Bo did a great job training my dog Butters and teaching me how to work with him. I couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend Kranky K9 to anyone interested in training their 4-legged friends.

Anyone have issues with their dog. Any issues big or small. Bo and Bre at Kranky K-9 are amazing. I highly recommend. At least schedule consult and just talk to these guys and you know you're in the right hands. They're helping me help my 8 year old mix with storm/balloons anxiety. Working with things I never would've ever thought of but seem so logical.

When we got our German Shepard puppy she was 8 weeks old. I started looking for a trainer at 4 months. I was referred to Bo and started training. I chose to train her with Bo's lessons because I was recently retired and had the time to work with her. She learned the commands but was a wild puppy so about 3/4 of the way thru training Bo took her for a week. When I went back for her she was a different puppy. So much calmer, listened better and healed much better. He stayed with us till the training was completed which took longer than the 10 weeks. I would refer him to anyone wanting a well trained dog.

We got a shepherd-lab puppy back in June and he chewed the walls, the carpet, jumped up on people, and was getting so strong we could barely walk him on a leash. It would be an understatement to say we were frustrated! I found Bo after relentlessly searching for dog training. No matter what programs I looked at, I was drawn back to Kranky K-9. When our puppy was old enough, he went to the three week boot camp with Bo. His behavior has done a complete 180! Not only does he listen to all of his commands, but in general he's much more calm and relaxed (he matured a lot through the program!) I love that he's still our goofy dog with a huge personality, but now we have confidence in him that he'll be on his best behavior whether we are going outside or have company over. It's important to remember you get out what you put in to this journey. You'll learn almost as much as your dog does! I'm so happy we found Bo and I think our dog is, too!

We chose Bo after visiting several trainers/training programs, he has made a world of difference in our pup. I would recommend his program to anyone. One thing I enjoyed most about this program is that he not only trains the pup but he also trains you, your pup is only as successful as you are. We moved to central Indiana and he has even advised us from afar to continue training and add in a few additional ways to focus our pups energy. Wish we could have brought him with us!

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.

Sophie and Leo are 2 very spirited Weimaraners. We had so many issues with them jumping on people in the house as well as pulling on the leash when we walked them. When we walked or hiked, we had to use pinch collars, which helped, but I wasn't a fan of them. We sent them to Bo at Kranky K9 for the board and train. It has made a tremendous difference in their behavior and how we handle them! Walking is now an absolute pleasure, and I walk both of them myself with no problems. He gave us the tools we needed.. and confidence too! I can text or call him with questions or issues and he gets right back to me. Best commitment you can make to your dog is to give them the proper training! Thank you Bo and Kranky K9!!!

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 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.

Be prepared to make changes when you sign up with Bo. His step by step training is very easy to follow. He will go the extra mile and is especially helpful when you have a particular problem. I highly recommend him.

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.
