Congratulations to Petey and his owners, Mike and Sherri McLauchlin for completing our Advanced Off-Leash program! Before training, Petey had become a challenge for his owners when he began to bully the other dogs in their home, and with his size, they knew they had a problem on their hands and decided to reach out to us for help. Now, Petey respects the other dogs boundaries. He also thrives in obedience work! Not to mention, this big guy is a total mamas boy and just loves to make both of his owners happy and proud! Lets hear it for Sherri, Mike, and Petey!!! 🎉🎊👏

Congratulations to Felon and his owners Donald and Nicole Gibson for completing the Intermediate On-Leash Program! Before training, Felon would pull on the leash during walks, especially when he saw other dogs playing at the park by their home. Now his owners can confidently walk him with ease. Felon is also a star at obedience now and just loves to make his owners proud! Way to go, Gibson family! 💥🐶

Thank You and Happy Father's Day K9s !

Congratulations to Toby and his owners Kathy and Chris for completing our Intermediate on Leash program. Before training, Toby was filled with anxiety and nervous energy due to a lack of clear leadership and resulting in some charming habits including charging and barking at the windows, stealing and destroying items, and digging/ burrowing in the sofas (resulting in baseball-sized holes!). With structure in place, Toby has actually learned how to relax and trust his owners to take the lead. This really smart Rat Terrier requires a job and he works obedience like a Boss! Great job guys!!!

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.

The Sam Ivy K9 training system

Sam Ivy is an expert canine behavior consultant with over 25 years in the business of dog behavior modification and training. He has spent the better part of the last decade compiling and analyzing dog behavior...and he is familiar with all the data available on the cutting edge methods of training dogs. Based on his research, Sam has developed his proven, tested and virtually unbeatable Human/Canine Behavior Modification Program. Now he is teaching the Sam Ivy K9 Training System to a team of highly dedicated trainers, who will come to your home and teach you, one-on-one, how to overcome virtually all challenges you're facing with your dog.

Sam Ivy K-9 Consultants - in-home dog training in South Florida

Dogs are a man's best friend. They are always there to shower us with unconditional love and never shy away from showing their affection. But oftentimes this friendship is spoiled by behavioral issues on the dog's part. Unable to cope with an out-of-control pooch, many pet owners are forced to get rid of their four-legged friends. However, there is another way to solve the problem. Sam Ivy K-9 Consultants offer effective private dog training in Florida at reasonable prices.

Our unique approach based on the principles of operant conditioning is guaranteed to turn any disobedient little rascal into a well-mannered canine companion. During the course of the training, you will learn how to communicate your wishes to your dog and make it respect the boundaries you set. Let your Fido know who leads the pack!

5 signs your dog needs training ASAP

Pet owners tend to overlook some of their dogs' behavioral issues writing them off as cute. However, even the most innocent actions may signify deeper problems. Here are five reasons to sign up for our K-9 training in Florida:

  • Aggression

    This is a number one red flag on our list. Seems like a no-brainer, but many owners often completely disregard it. If your pup is aggressive towards other pets or people, it is time for behavior correction.

  • Barking

    Excessive barking can be frustrating not only to you but to people around you too. Our trainers will help you teach your pooch such important commands as "stop" and "quiet" that will eventually curb its instinct to bark every time a car goes by.

  • Jumping

    Pet owners seem to love when their dogs jump on them. Other people - not so much. Want to teach your dog how to greet someone without putting their paws on them? Our experienced dog trainers in South Florida know how!

  • Pulling

    Sometimes, it is hard to tell who is walking whom. If your dog cannot contain its excitement every time you go for a stroll, it is definitely an issue. With proper training, your pup will never pull the leash again. Even if it sees a squirrel.

  • Ignoring

    Every pet owner knows that "Are you talking to me?" look on their dog's face. If your dog has selective hearing and doesn't come the first time you call it by name, it can benefit from an obedience class.

Looking for a good South Florida dog training specialist? Search no more! Our "dog whisperers" will assess the problem and solve your pup's behavioral issues in the shortest time. With Sam Ivy K-9 Consultants, you pay for the result - not for the hours, and the initial consultation is free of charge!
