“Choosing Sam Ivy K-9 Consultants to train my Spaniel -Mix, Whiskey, was a great decision!  I had recently moved from a large Townhouse to a small apartment, and my poor dog was having a hard time adapting. He had to get used to new sounds and a totally new environment.  Neighbors were complaining of his barking when I would leave for work or errands. This was my biggest concern and I was not prepared to tackle the issue on my own.
As soon as we started the training sessions and he understood who was ‘alpha’ in our little pack, I noticed changes in his behavior and demeanor. He developed more self-assurance and It became easier to correct bad behavior.  I’m grateful to my children for pushing me to hire a professional dog trainer. I highly recommend Sam Ivy K-9 Consultants, as well as our trainer Maribel, for her personable and very professional support.  Whiskey is now a calmer and happier dog!  Thank you.  Myriam

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where are you located?
    Wherever you are - we are!Our headquarter is located in Florida, but we have clients all over the United States.
  • Do you offer in-home or in-person training?
    If you live in the Tampa Bay area or in the Miami/ Fort Lauderdale area, we can meet you in person if necessary. If in- person sessions are advisable in your case, will be discussed during your Free Initial Consultation. Due to COVID19 we are not offering in- home training, all in- person sessions take place outdoors (front yard, parks, ect), to keep everybody safe.
  • Do you offer boarding and training or bootcamps?
    No, we strongly believe that our approach delivers a far superior outcome! To learn more about this please take our Free Introductory Course. If you want your dog to listen to you and respect you, you have to be the one training your dog. Our experts will guide you and teach you how it is done.
  • How much does training cost?
    The prices for our training packages start at $600 and go up to $5000 for Off- leash and Service dog training. Which training package makes most sense for you and your dog, and how much that costs, will be discussed in detail during your Free Initial Consultation.

Obedience Training is not the solution!

Most people today think of dog training as teaching your dog how to 'sit, stay and come'. In most cases, this kind of obedience training is all you can expect when you enroll your dog in a training class at a dog training school or hire a dog trainer.. ...This unfortunately falls way short for many of you who are in need of real help with their dog! At best when you need your dog to listen, your dog only really knows a few tricks and NEVER listens when distracted. At worst your dog exhibits chronic ongoing problem behaviors that are very annoying to very serious in nature. If you're looking for help with your dog's aggression, soiling in the house, incessant barking, pulling, jumping, or damage of furniture or clothing, etc., you are typically forced to rely on dog trainers with severely limited ability, if any, to resolve any of these issues. Many, just like you, have found themselves at their wits end, having gone through other dog trainers wasting precious time and money and still not resolving their dog's behavior problems. Often dog owners come to the unfortunate and regrettable conclusion, that they either have to live with their dog's unwanted behavior or they actually have to give up their dog.

Real Training - Real Results!

If this sounds familiar, we have the solution! Sam ivy K9 Consultants goes way beyond 'sit, stay and come' training. We offer real K9 dog training with real results in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Lakeland, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.... ...Our in-home dog training program is a simple, straightforward, relentlessly pragmatic and enlightened approach to what REALLY works in eliminating poor dog behaviors and manifesting good behavior. Together we can turn your dog into the ultimate canine companion! With the help of our trainers your dog will learn to respect you and the boundaries you set.
