Nekko

"My wife and I own a 21 month old American Bulldog named Nekko. Right now he is 121 pounds and would be a big problem had we not done obedience training for him when he was young. We called several places that offered classes before we found Frank. We were impressed with the knowledge and experience he had in not only dog training, but also dog behavior. We chose Frank because he offered a one-on-one personal training class for us and our dog. When he worked with Nekko he demonstrated and explained to us everything he was doing. That was important so we would be able to train with him on our own and do it correctly. He also worked with Nekko on some protection training and was very positive with him. It helped Nekko be more confident but at the same time be very obedient. We love our dog and would not trust just anyone with him. Frank cares about the dogs he trains and takes great pride in his work. That's a quality that is getting hard to come by and we wouldn't go to anyone else for dog training."
 

Sincerely,


Robert and Tina Cortes

 


 

Robby

"We have used Precision K-9 frequently throughout the past year and a half to train, as well as board, our Belgian Malinois. At our first meeting with Precision K-9 Robby was 13mos. old. As a rescue animal Robby had little training and we were uncertain of his background but to my amazement Frank and Robby shared an uncanny bond almost immediately and Frank’s assessment of Robby’s underlying personality was spot on.

Robby has attended Precision K-9 for the initial extended training program, “Doggie Training Camp,” for basic obedience training as well as weekend boarding for additional training. The facilities are clean and well kept, and Robby is always excited to see Frank again. Frank has also worked with Robby at home to correct specific behaviors like leaving the yard without permission and pool safety. (Imagine my surprise when Frank hopped into the pool with Robby so that Robby could overcome his anxiety of the pool.)

Both Frank and Jenna have gone out of their way to accommodate our family’s specific goals for Robby while maintaining their enthusiastic and professional approach to training. It is absolutely without reservation that I would recommend Precision K-9."

"I first met Frank Cowen in Feb '10 when I took my 2 young, male, American Bulldogs to him for training. I wanted to get them started in the protection dog sport of French Ring. These dogs aren't the best breed for protection dog sports and certainly not for French Ring. It’s a huge challenge but in just over a year, Frank has helped me by training both of these dogs to where they will both obtain the entry level title of French Ring Brevet in the fall of 2011.

Frank has made what I thought was going to be a very difficult endeavor relatively easy. This is a time consuming sport but the techniques and methods that Frank uses and has taught me have made it easy for the dogs and I to learn. He's always willing to explain things in detail as well as, demonstrate them. This is a difference to my previous experiences with dog trainers, some of whom would get annoyed for simply asking a question. He's a true professional. Another aspect that sets Frank apart from the others is that he truly cares about the dogs. Frank's years of experience have given him a true sense of not only knowing why a dog is exhibiting a certain behavior but a real understanding of all breeds of dogs.

I would recommend Frank and his services to anyone, with any breed of dog, of any age, who's looking a professional trainer."

Bubs

"I was referred to Frankie by a friend after spending thousands of dollars on previous trainers and having unsuccessful results. I’ve had my dog Bubs for almost four years now. I got him as a puppy and at around six months old noticed he was nervous and sometimes showed aggression towards strangers or other dogs. I tried several trainers, books, talking to vets, etc without any decent results.

I was a little nervous meeting Frankie with Bubs as I wasn’t sure how Bubs would react. From the moment I took Bubs to Frankie’s house for our initial meeting (sometimes the most nerve racking part in finding a trainer) I was at ease. I saw the way Frankie acted around Bubs which instantly helped both Bubs and I relax. He has the ability to sense exactly what’s going on with the dogs mind. Also, their training and boarding facility is immaculate!

I agreed to do an on-leash package with Frankie which started out at his house and we eventually made our way to public places. Frankie does a great job at explaining what I was doing wrong and how to fix it. When I would get frustrated during a training session Frankie would take over the leash and show me that Bubs really can listen and obey if the technique is done correctly. Seeing Frankie work Bubs gave us so much motivation to know what the results could be.

After the on-leash training we moved to e-collar training. Frankie answered all my questions regarding what results to expect and how the collar will benefit Bubs’ nervousness. We boarded Bubs for just over three weeks. One of the nicest parts about being away from Bubs for this long time was that Frankie would text/call with updates and pictures throughout the training process. This was absolutely awesome! When picking him up we were so pleased with the results. We couldn’t wait to get home and begin the training ourselves.

Even after we had paid for the training and had questions, Frankie and Jenna were very approachable and nearly always available to talk. They always return my calls/texts even to this day. If I hadn’t found Frankie I would have most likely been forced to get rid of Bubs. He’s made owning a dog fun again and has allowed us to give Bubs the quality of life he deserves. We now enjoy taking Bubs to a quiet park for off leash walks knowing we have complete control over him."

Rosebud

Our daughter received Rosebud, a yellow lab, for Christmas in 2009.  Immediately, we recognized that Rosebud was very smart and energetic.  We started puppy training with one company.  They came to the house and spent time we us.  When they were done they offered follow-up training, but we had to go to them.  Rosebud was good, but my wife had problems controlling her.  We found another company who came to the house, but again my wife still had trouble controlling her.  We were at our wits end and seriously thinking about getting rid of Rosebud because she was too much for us to handle along with two kids. 

Then we found Precision K-9.  We explained our situation and Frank immediately identified the problem.  He developed a plan with a solution and assured us it would work.  We turned over Rosebud to Precision K-9 and eagerly awaited the results.  We were pleasantly surprised when we saw how things turned out.  Rosebud was a different dog.  She not only listens to my wife, but also my daughter.  Frank is always there for follow-up questions and to help us as we advance our training with Rosebud.

Rosebud is a pleasure to have around and we cannot thank Precision K-9 enough for their success.  To top it all off, Precision K-9 is now the only place we use for boarding because we have seen how much they care about our Rosebud.

Blitz

Dear Frank,

I have the BEST dog, thanks to YOU!  My dog is perfect for us, and you sure do know how to pick them! 

 I vividly remember the day that you got down on your hands and knees and observed the six week old puppies to see which puppy would fit our needs.  You, obviously, were right on the mark!   He is perfect!

Our German Shepherd has the greatest disposition.  He walks on the street and is the friendliest dog.  People stop and pet him all the time.  He has even licked babies’ toes and hands.  Thanks to YOU, he is wonderful!

His obedience is superb.  When I say anything, he reacts immediately.  I am always in control and he is aware of this, due to your diligent training. 

Your advice has always been very accurate.  Because of you, some of the health problems that we have had in the past are gone completely.  You solved problems when my Vet couldn’t.  You are AMAZING!! 

Since we are his parents, we consider you his special relative, for you treat him with care, kindness, and control, just as a family member would treat their own.

When we go away and leave him with you, we know that he is in excellent hands.  We never worry about him.  He is always very healthy when we pick him up and looks great. 

We are so appreciative that we have you in our lives and thank you for all that you do. 

Sincerely,

Lynne Leslie

How do you know you have the best trainer in the state? When your dogs go racing toward Frank when it's time for a lesson! After having Precision K9 Plus highly recommended to us, we sent our 3 dogs, a Blue Heeler and two very stubborn Yorkshire Terriers, to Frank for training. . From the consultation in our home, we knew immediately Frank was going to change our lives.      

Our Heeler "Roo," went for the 6 week program at 9 months old. Frank took our great dog and made her an AMAZING dog. We have the most obedient, perfect pup you ever did see. Heelers, in general, want to work for you, but to see our girl heel at our side, looking up at us waiting for her next command, is a dream dog we never thought we would have. Our Yorkies went for 3 weeks and finally, oh thank Frankie, finally, they listen to "sit, down, stay and come!"

Better than even having the perfectly trained dogs, Frank is the BEST at training we humans, which is actually probably the hard part. He is so kind, calm, and supportive, he answers questions and concerns with the patience of a Saint, he responds quickly to messages left, and inevitably, an issue or question will arise you need him for. The lessons he comes to give in your house after the training are simply wonderful. He has also given lessons to our children because it's important the dogs listen to every member of the family. (The patience of a  Saint, I tell you!)

Truly, how outstanding is it when people walking their dogs stop in their tracks to look at YOUR dog and say, "wow..that's an unbelievably well trained dog!" Frank has a gift and we are so fortunate he is sharing that gift with us. Frank is better than that guy on TV because Frank is real, he's here, he can and will train YOUR dog, and he is way more talented.

Zeus

My wife and I were introduced to Frank several years ago when we first got our Rottweiler puppy, Zeus. Since then we have seen Frank transfer Zeus from an out of control puppy into an obedient and well disciplined adult dog. He was even recently able to help Zeus obtain an American Street Ring title on 2 days notice and we had not even trained for the event in over 6 months.

 

Along the way we have seen Frank do amazing things with every other dog we have ever seen him train. He can literally take a dog that is aggressive or does not listen to their owner at all and have him looking like a show dog within minutes. It is amazing. The famous Dog Whisperer on TV can't even compare to Frank, he should be the one with a TV show. I would HIGHLY recommend Frank to anyone with any breed of dog...................

Charles & Sabrina

I own and operate a Lawn and Landscape business.  In January of 2008, I had one of my trailers broken into and lost many thousands of dollars worth of equipment.  In Feb. 2008, I purchased a 9 week old German Shepherd puppy from a private breeder.  I had no idea what I was going to do to train the dog but was interested in a personal protection program.  I met Frank and after evaluating my puppy asked me what I wanted to accomplish, as I needed a tailored program to fit my lifestyle with kids, family ect.  Frank explained to me what to expect and told me up front that my commitment would be the difference.

I am still a client and see Frank every week.  I now am the proud owner of a Personal Protection dog that is social, well adjusted with a great temperament.  Everything he has told me to expect has come into focus before my eyes.  I have a wonderful relationship with my dog and she will obey when in social situations and protect when necessary or when told to do so.

Owning this type of dog has been a great experience for me and I would encourage anyone to use Frank’s services.

You are short changing yourself and your dog’s abilities if you do not train properly and use an experienced and dedicated trainer such as Frank Cowen.

“Thanks Frank”
