Excellent Reviews on

Sam R.

So we got our baby, Roxie, back and I have to say wow at the difference.

She had a lot of trouble in public being full of anxiety and barking at people. But now she's amazing and she's only going to get better.

So I would like to thank Nicole Hubert and Ryan Nicole Vann Gibbs for all your time and hard work.

AK9I is a top notch school and I highly recommend it for anyone trying to get into the K9 industry.

Instructors are very knowledgeable and knows their stuff when it comes to training canines. They were always there to ask questions, even after training hours.

Highly recommended!
