Rescue Story: Jelly Bean’s Transformation

K9 Heights partnered with Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue in rehabilitating Jellybean, and unsocialized, neglected dog found on the streets with an embedded collar. His journey was a slow one but his transformation has been huge! Check out Jelly Bean’s transformation here!


Buddy and Daisy

Buddy and Daisy are Blue Heelers whose owners contacted us after Buddy had killed a family cat. Both dogs had a long history of fighting with each other. Serious fights that occurred on a regular basis. With our 6 Week Premier Aggression Board and Train program, Buddy is a new dog . Daisy did our In-Home Total transformation program and both dogs are now living happy healthy lives, now co-exsisting with each other and a family cat. Check out their transformation here!



Meet Dexter!

He came to K9 Heights Dog Training after having seriously bitten another dog. He had serious aggression issues, no focus or reliable obedience, and was always in a state of arousal, not able to settle down whether inside or out. Through our 4 week Board and Train program, he excelled and is now a pleasure to walk and has learned to engage his brain and not simply react to his environment.

Dakota Board and Train Graduate!

Dakota is a graduate of the K9 Heights 4 week Board and Train program. When I first met this family, Dakota and her brother Caesar put on quite a show during the evaluation. Dakota was super affectionate but a wild child, a jumper, and she was a chewer to the point that she had destroyed most of the furniture. Adding to the dilemma, Dakota gave her mom a super hard time when Emily tried to crate her. These two companions had the family restructuring their entire lives just to manage the chaos, which is why they contacted K9 Heights Dog Training. They needed a complete transformation in their home. Find out what it takes to make this type of change come about. Click here

“The only people I would wholeheartedly trust with Stryker. Eric and Rachel have been a part of our lives for over a year now. They have known Stryker since he was just a little pup, and have helped, both him and us, to develop him into an amazing asset to our family. Whether it is constant obedience reinforcement, or protection work, they excel at all ends.”

"Unbelievable! Before going to K9 Heights Dog Training our dog would have a feast off the counters. Twice we had to induce vomiting!! Our daughter said, "Is this Charley?" Our son said, "Maybe they cloned him", LOL. You guys are certainly the cream of the crop when it comes to dog training. We tried everything, corrections, yucky spray, timeouts, catching him in the act, nothing worked."

"Excellent trainers/training. In addition to basic training needs, we had some serious behavioral issues with our Golden Retriever. They did an outstanding job correcting his issues and working with us so that we now have a delightful, loving pet. We couldn't be happier and are so very grateful for their time and efforts. They are awesome people who love what they do; training well behaved, happy dogs and their owners."

"What would we do without them? So lucky to have crossed paths with Eric and Rachel at K9 Heights. Life with my husky was very trying until both my dog and I got whipped into shape. I can't thank you guys enough for everything you have done for us and can't wait till my new puppy gets to work with you. Let me say your services are worth every penny. The results are fantastic!"

"K9 Heights did amazing work. Before Eric and his staff trained our dog, walks were not enjoyable and our dog would not listen to us at all. After a few sessions of in home training our dog totally changed. He would listen to us very well and he walked perfectly. We are even able to walk our dog off leash after all the training with K9 Heights. Off leash training was a huge accomplishment because before our training our dog would run every time he saw a squirrel or anything that caught his attention. I would recommend K9 Heights to any dog owner!"

"I have a brand new dog! My husband and I were worried that our new German shepherd puppy would never be able to be around our 1 year old daughter, due to constant nipping and jumping. After only 2 training sessions, our dog is now a happy member of the family, and is able to roam free in the house with our whole family! She is gentle, listens to her commands, and overall seems so much happier! We can’t thank you guys enough for helping our family and our puppy! I recommend k9 heights to everyone who has a new dog."

"K9 Heights Dog Training trained a service dog for me. They truly care about the dogs they work with and it's clear to see that Rachel and Eric are passionate about what they do. Their training for my service dog has helped me to regain my life with new independence that I haven't had in a long time. K9 Heights have been incredibly patient with me as I learn how to navigate life as a service dog handler as well as the fact that they have taken the best care of my girl. I wouldn't take my dog anywhere else."
