Sherando >Auburn Leach K 9
We could not be happier with Auburn Leach K9 Academy and his work with our darling and immensely spoiled and ill-mannered springer, whom we called the best-looking bad dog in America, pre-Auburn. His communication, follow-through and post-grad visits are so helpful. His approach to training is kind, firm, and super-smart and intuitive. I would recommend him without reservation. Arlo came back to us after two weeks with all of his fun, love of life, and sweetness intact, with an extra measure of calm and discipline. It is telling that Arlo was sad to see Auburn go at the drop off, and so very happy to see him when he came by for the first tune-up. Auburn Leach is and always will be our guru for all things canine, and we are so glad to have found him. By the way, there are two negative reviews of his services, which he willingly and honestly addresses if asked about them. He is a good businessman, he has kind eyes, animals love him, and he is an excellent dog trainer. And his stellar reviews outweigh the others by a factor of ten.
I am so pleased with how great of a dog Happy is. He is very well behaved, follows commands, doesn't jump and even wont get on the couch. He is extremely gentle with our children and is what every family hopes for in a dog. He is completely potty trained, which is SUCH blessing. Mr. Leach was very professional in our dealings with him. He gave us the gift of an amazingly well behaved addition to our family. We traveled 3 hours just to work with him and I can confidently say that I will recommend him to anyone who needs professional training for their pooch. Thank you Mr. Leach for everything you did for Happy. Danny Chavez Firefighter / Medic
Auburn is a great trainer and loves all animals. We've known him for years and he is a wonderful person. He has trained several dogs for us and they did great.
In response to the comment made by "mindel152" below, it is true that "Lynette R" is an independent contractor who does some computer work for us, but she is also a client who paid to have their dog trained by the K9 Academy in early 2012. We feel she has every right to make a comment about her experiences, and we appreciate the positive review.
Just a tip. The recommendation listed below from Lynette R. is actually a part time employee of this disgusting facility. Do your homework and actually go and see this facility before leaving any pet there.
I can't believe anyone would give Auburn Leach K9 anything but 5 stars. To those folks I say you need to learn to manage your expectations! Auburn did wonders on my best four legged friend. My dog learned all the basic commands. In addition, Auburn and his Team taught my best buddy to not be fearful around strangers. And that, in itself, was not a small feat.
Auburn Leach. Please do not send your dog to Auburn Leach. Our dog came back with cuts on her nose, swollen right paw and she stunk of urine. My guess was she was lying in a cage and in urine all day. He has good intentions but does not take care of the dog.
Auburn Leach K9 has been GREAT with our dogs. We have 2 large, male dogs and my parents recently brought their large female up from North Carolina to go through Auburn's 2-week "Boot Camp". The progress we saw after just a couple of days has been amazing. Sure, the dogs may "backslide" a bit once they get home, but that's why he has follow-up visits and "tune ups". And, if we get lazy and don't keep working with our dogs after training, the dogs really pick up on that. Those of us who are long-time dog owners know there is no "magic cure" for misbehaving canines, and that they will take the easiest route given the chance. Owners, too, are responsible for making sure their dogs continue the good manners and obedience, which takes daily work. Our family really appreciates what Auburn and Wayne have done in helping our dogs be better "citizens" and family members. The facility may not be fancy, but every time we've been there, it's been clean and I know for sure the dogs are very well cared for. I'd definitely recommend Auburn's K9 Academy!
Expensive and not impressed.
We were looking for a dog trainer that was highly recognized and creditable for our dog with just a few small behavior problems . We came across Auburn Leach Dog Training .
We found them to be quite pricey for the small amount of work that was done with our dog. Our dog was not a major problem, but just need a few extra pointers on her obedience and manners. When we went back to pick her up after a few weeks , the obedience commands only worked 80% of the time and then when we came home only 50% of the time . I will say thou , that it looks as if she was well cared for during her stay and their kennel , which we didn't find to be very hygenic .
