  • K-9 Companions Nashville- We cannot thank you all enough for everything you have done for our Gracie. Even though it has only been several days, it’s like we have a new dog. We both know we have a long way to go in our training, but oh what she can do now, only in 4 weeks! She is adapting to the car now, getting in and out by herself, going to the store, curious, and responding to her commands, even teaching her brother. For the first time in four years, I have gotten up every day, and dressed, not sitting in my PJ’s all day. Instead my husband, Gracie, and I, have gone out several days to Lowes, working on, sit and stay, and her heeling, etc. She is getting more confident every day, not as shy as she used to be. We laugh so hard, tears down our face, when she likes to approach the Halloween interactive skeleton’s, learned quickly how to touch her nose to make them talk, and sits in front of them, not sure why, but cute! This isn’t the Gracie we used to know, who would have ran away with her tail between her legs. Gracie has well exceeded what we ever thought she would be able to do in a short period of time. We are excited over continued training with K-9 Companions in Nashville, in the near future to obtain our goal as a fully trained Veterans service dog.
    I personally want to thank you from this Veterans heart, how much you have already change my life. My husband thanks you to for giving us hope of life again, and teaching me the skills. He enjoys being a part of this process with me, all of us bonding together. I know Gracie will be the best service dog I could ever ask for. I do not think this could ever been possible without each of you.
    A huge thank you, Karen and Melissa, loving my baby as she was yours. We recommend K9 Companions in Nashville TN to anyone looking for a second chance to enjoy your life again. Their training is consistent with the right skills, loving each dog they train, does not use shock collars, a big thing I am against, very knowledgeable, a complete affordable package you will not find anywhere.

    BTW Thank you daily for the updates, and awesome photos, it meant the world to us. It kept me going, the extra special touch you did not have to do!

    “We took our rescue dog Chopper to K9 s boot camp nearly 3 years ago. All the staff and Karen the owner where so courteous and professional. The trainers know what they are doing and tell you like they see it. Part of becoming a K9 family member is the ability to board your dog when you go on vacation, and if you have already done the boot camp, they will re-train him while your dog is there. K9 is clean, real clean. Chopper has never come home with kennel cough as some times can happen when dogs are boarded. I would and have recommend this company several times. If you can your dog to be trained by the best and well taken care of…check them out. They are not necessarily the least expensive facility, but remember, you get what you pay for, and K9 is worth every dime!”

    “I have dealt with k-9 companions since the late 80 s and have always been exceeding pleased with the staff and the job they have done. I have trained and had trained both Labrador retrievers and german shepherds. Whenever I travel my personal protection GSD always vacations with them. They treat her like one of their own. I highly recommend them for boot camp or field lessons. They train not just your dog but you, so your companion and you both work as a team.”

    “Today we picked up our recently rescued American Bulldog 2 year old pup. He had been abused and had no training. He was incredibly excited in his new home, but was a whole lot to handle. After 3 weeks at K-9 C. he is a new dog. Thank you to the entire team at K-9 C. We look forward to the follow up classes that you include in your training package”

  • “Another great stay for our dog Blue. We just picked our little guy up after 10 days and was very happy and in great spirits. K 9 trained him when we first got him and we actually were considering taking him back to the rescue until we put him through boot camp. We now board him there when needed and have never had an issue as he is always in great spirits when we pick him up. Cannot say enough good things about the K9 team.”
