Great dog trainers!
We have engaged Katrina to help us train our new puppy. She has helped us train two dogs a couple of years ago. It is probably more accurate to say that she has trained us to train our dogs. She really knows her stuff and has an amazing rapport with dogs. You can’t go wrong with Katrina and KeenDog.

The knowledge and professionalism tied with the obvious love of dogs wins the day. Taking time to explain and provide tips and pointers even in the midst of an active session. Was impressed and am pleased to be working with Keen !

KeenDog helped turn an energetic puppy into a much better companion. In such a short period they showed our family how to get the results we were wanting. I would not hesitate to contact them. You will not regret the decision.

We met Phillip during our initial consultation. He was amazing with our four month old dachshund. Even during the consultation, he helped us by providing helpful tips on potty training and showed us the potential she had. We just finished up our one on one sessions and are beginning group training classes and can’t wait. We even used their boarding services and Brittany along with the entire staff was amazing with our dog. Finding Keendog was one of the best things we have done as new dog owners

another KeenDog star in the making
This is the second Goldendoodle that I have taken to Katrina and Phillip for training to become a therapy dog. My first one is 3.5 yrs old and has already made over 100 nursing home visits. All of the folks are amazed that he is so well trained! My new baby is 10 months old and is responding well to the training, especially from Brittney. I highly recommend the Keen Team! They are the best!

They really know their stuff. My dog is just a puppy, but after 3 one on one visits with Keen (and me following their instructions ;) ) people are amazed at how well behaved he is for a puppy. The stuff they do works and has helped this extremely exuberant Boxer fit into our family really nicely so far. Excellent at working with us on how to work with the dog, which is 9/10ths of the battle. Really glad we went with Keen.

Initial Review - First Meeting / Consultation
We decided to schedule the initial free consultation with Keen based off of referrals and online reviews. We have decided to move forward with the 1:1 classes. While Keen can seem expensive, once you do research, you will see their prices are comparable to other dog trainers. Keen arrived with two helping and informative hands to the consultation & dove right into helping us. They are extremely passionate and knowledgeable; advising against our unknowingly bad habits with our pups. More to come.

We have had such a great experience working with Keen Dog. Our puppy has really learned so much in a short time. Phillip, Katrina and Ashley have been so helpful and patient teaching him and us skills we needed to train him. They have been so great one on one with him and sent us numerous videos, suggestions and checked in often, which we so appreciate. We definitely recommend Keen Dog and look forward working with them more!

Keen Dog Brittany
This was our first official training session with Keen Dog Brittany, and it was fabulous. She made sure that we were able to perform by showing us multiple times and then guiding us through each step. We covered so much in our short session, but she made sure that we weren't overwhelmed. I would 100% recommend Keen Dog to anyone who feels at a loss when it comes to training your crazy lil pups.

I had a great consultation with Keen Dog and know that they do amazing work! I look forward to working with them.
Sep 24, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We have learned so much from Keen Dog training! We have one more one-on-one session then we will graduate to group lessons. We are excited about continuing to learn and be inspired by Katrina. We are so thankful to Keen Dog Training for helping us learn how to be better dog parents!

Developing a Family Pet
Keendog was the right mix of encouragement and firm direction we needed in order to get our golden retriever puppy ready to live with a family of 6. They helped us gain tools to lay a foundation of basic training as well as helpful frameworks through which to approach specific issues we were facing. They were professional, generous with their time, and most accessible. Highly recommended!

Comprehensive and unique
Keendog has such a great strategy. The one on one training is really effective. They rarely take the dog and just demo, they work hard to train the owner how to handle the dog...which is really where most of the errors are after the dog has learned commands! But the best part about this program is the group classes. There is so much value on having unlimited access to these to really challenge the dog. We're so glad we found Keendog!
Sep 12, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Happy to have found Keen Dog!
We had tried too many other "trainers/training programs" and were always left feeling like we needed more. I wish we had tried Keen Dog sooner! We have loved working with the Keen Dog trainers and learning from them...and our dogs have, too!
Sep 6, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We love Keen Dog
My dog Grizzly is learning more than I ever thought possible with the help of KeenDog. He isn't the only one learning too! I am learning how to support his learning experience with consistency and we are both enjoying the process. Five stars to Brittany and the Keendog team. Todd

I have been actively involved in dog rescue for 10+ years. Although I have done all I know to help a fear aggressive dog, I have hit the wall hard! I am now faced with learning new things or certain euthanasia for an uncontrollable fear biting dog. I researched and found KeenDog. Initial visit included my dog attempting to attack Katrina while she remained calm and positive. She knows how to help dogs and their human live better lives. I've already seen results in two visits! So thankful!

KeenDog is worth it!
I am so glad that I chose KeenDog to work with me on my 3 year old German Shepherd. Ashley is amazing! She listened to my goals and not only helped me get there, but easily exceeded them. I am more confident with others at my house and in public and know that my dog will listen to me and not make a scene. Truly incredible stuff! I can't wait to continue with group classes!

GREAT dog training!
My six month old lab is now a Keen Dog graduate! She learned so much and is so well behaved since her training. I take her out with me a lot and most people comment on her good manners. Ashley was her teacher- very professional, very knowledgeable and such a delight! She was even more patient teaching ME to be a Keen dog parent! I would recommend Keen to anyone who wants a better behaved and disciplined dog that still keeps their innate personality!

We have four dogs, one of which is a Great Dane. They can be a handful. Katrina has trained all of them. When we brought our fourth dog, Echo, home we started having dominance issues between her and one of our other dogs. The fights were brutal and more difficult to handle because Echo is deaf. Due to the training, the change is remarkable. No more fights. They've all gained confidence and I'm actually able to walk all four together. Keendog is amazing and we're so grateful for all they do.

Love KEEN DOG training!
Had our interview session yesterday and I was very pleased. Katrina was wonderful to work with and my dogs loved her. Excited for her to teach me & Josie more!

It was a pleasure training our two year-old Goldendoodle with KeenDog! Every trainer we worked with was patient and accomodating. The service was above and beyond as they were always accessable whenever a question arose in between sessions. The trainers are very eager to help on the path to success!

THE BEST TRAINER/THE BEST TRAINED DOG
Katrina has given us more confidence in training our new little puppy! If you are thinking of using Keen Dog, it is well worth the investment. Our puppy is our new family member. Having a well trained dog makes all our family time together and travel more relaxing! Thanks Katrina for giving us a life time of knowledge.
May 11, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We loved working with KeenDog! We were late in the game with regards to training ~ they helped us with our 2 Goldens, ages 3 and 9! You can teach an old dog new tricks. :) Very useful tips and improvement even after the first visit. Keendog was always on time and made the most of our lessons! Just wish we would have used them 9 years ago...

I can't say enough good things about KeenDog. Katrina, Phil, and Ashley are not only super great to work with and accommodating but their training and methods are unbelievable. The videos they post are not just a small sample of their best dogs, it is how all dogs they work with behave. We bought our Golden Doodle as a puppy project and could not be happier with the dog as well as KeenDog's follow up and commitment. It was well worth the investment.
Apr 20, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Our puppy spent two weeks with KeenDog (Ashley) and is doing so well! She is now certainly smarter than we are - the human training is the bigger challenge. Ashley taught her manners and good behaviors so we can enjoy our dog! It is wonderful! We hope we can keep her tight and we use them for boarding tune-ups along the way!
Apr 16, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
The perfect touch up
I've worked with Katrina since my 5 yr old lab Chloe was 1. Then my husband got Cooper, a yellow lab while we were dating and living apart. When we moved in together I taught Cooper some basics and he taught Chloe some bad habits. Handing 2 large dogs can be difficult and I've struggled with training then both simultaneously. Katrina was able to help me work on Chloe's bad habits and clean up our walk so the 3 of us can walk peacefully. I can't wait to continue with group lessons for them both.
Mar 23, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Katrina is amazing! She helped me several years ago with a scared and aloof chow and turned him into the sweetest most amazing member of my family. Now, she is helping me with my sweet and nutty lab/boxer puppy. No matter the type of dog, Katrina can do amazing things with them! Thanks!
Mar 10, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We have just begun puppy basics and are so thankful for KeenDog's help!!! Phil set us straight on some things that weren't working and all of us (puppy included) are so much happier now. I can't wait to see what we learn next. THANK YOU KEEN DOG!
Feb 13, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Worth every penny!
My husband and I were so pleased with our first in home session. As first time dog owners, we really had no idea where to start with training. Phil was amazing and explained step by step what we needed to be working on. We have been following through and already see so much progress within a matter of days!!! I highly recommend KeenDog to all dog owners!
Feb 11, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Keendog is amazing!!!
I've been so impressed with the progress bear (my 9 month old chocolate lab) has been making these past few weeks!! We live in the city so it's so important that he listens and responds in a noisy/active environment, with the training received by keendog he is exceeding my expectations and doing so well walking the streets, interacting with other people and dogs, and listening to commands like a pro :) i definitely give keendog my highest recommendation they are the best!!!
Feb 11, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Katrina is awesome and very experienced. I really appreciate the approaches she takes with my dogs and the patience she has with my new puppy and my stubborn Pitbull! She is SO great with them and I appreciate her and her efforts SO much!! Currently she is training our new puppy, Ellie, to be the Mascot Dog at my property, Copus 1, out in Indian Trail where Ellie will greet residents and be part of the every day routine in the office! I'm SUPER excited about it and having Katrina out at Copus 1!

In love with the keen approach
I cannot believe we learn so much in just 1hr. Ashley was great, and extremely knowledgeable. I love the Keen approach. Definitely not your regular approach but a true bonding experience with your best friend. Ashley's dog is just amazing! He is so beautiful and well behaved. She did not have to talk for him to know her expectations. Amazing!
Feb 1, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Ashley came out for a complimentary visit to share with us what she does. All I can say is INCREDIBLE! Her dog is beautiful and well trained. I wish I could blink my eyes and have my 6 week old Golden Retriever trained like that! Awesome!
Jan 18, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
My Standard Poodle and I met with Katrina a few days ago with the intent to brush up on obedience so we can become Therapy Dog and handler. I was very impressed with Katrina -- punctual, friendly and very knowledgable. She did a very thorough evaluation with Nala and me and then we talked about goals and how to reach them. We will start lessons soon and I am very excited to become part of the KeenDog experience!
Jan 13, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Phil & Katrina are the sweetest people to work with! They have such a passion and it really shows in how they approach each session. My dog just turned one & my husband and I decided to work with KeenDog to improve his listening skills & he is currently learning the ropes, but they have such patience in working with not only my dog but also with me as I learn the skillsets to continue on his lessons throughout each week. KeenDog is definitely changing the way we train & we love working with them
Dec 24, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We got a puppy and knew we would want her to be well behaved, so we started with KeenDog when our girl was 13 weeks old. Immediately they were able to help us polish up the basic things we started and show us how to communicate better with our pup. Months later and we are well on our way to having a well behaved dog. We are convinced the KeenDog trainers are miracle workers and could help any dog out there. They understand the dogs and show you how to understand them as well!

The best dog trainers
The trainers at KeenDog are the best around and have been for years. We've known Katrina and Phil for a while and they've taken Murphy from a barking, chewing, wrecking ball of a dog to a docile, loving kinda-civilized member of the family. And they're good at training the owners, too!
Dec 6, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We have had our in house demo and one in home lesson. We are so pleased with the tips and pointers we have already recieved and the reponse of our dog to Katrina. It is obvious she truly understands canine behavior and better yet understands how to train people to respond to our dogs. This training is already making our puppy even more enjoyable to be around. Thank you!
Nov 16, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Katrina and Phil have given me hope for my crazy 2 dogs to be the happy, healthy, balanced partners I've always wanted them to be. Most importantly , they are teaching me how to communicate with them so I can be a good and fair leader!
Nov 2, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
Our first appointment was great with our new German Shepard pup. Ashley did a great job in starting us off on the right path on learning what to do with our new puppy. Looking forward to more of our lessons as he gets bigger.
Oct 30, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30341263
We are so pleased with KeenDog! Our now 9 month old German Shepherd Dog is everything we could have dreamed of after our one-on-one coaching with Ashley! He can go anywhere and be around humans of all ages because he looks to us for direction! I would highly recommend KeenDog!

You MUST hire KeenDog!
My husband and I are so happy we decided to work with KeenDog. We were recommended to reach out to Ashley Rodriquez at KeenDog after we saw how well behaved a friend's 8mo golden retriever behaved at a local brewery. Ashley Rodriquez is the absolute best trainer and our dogs love her. She and Chappell are extremely professional, informative and we love working with the both of them. We are thrilled with both of our dog's progress (4yrs, 6yrs) and we can finally bring them with us everywhere!

Charlottes own "Dog Whisperer"
Our experience with Keen Dig has been awesome. Katrina, Phil, Ashley and Chapel have all been great to work with. Very professional! We have an 8 year old overly possessive poodle and with their help we can now open the door of our home with out him charging the person at the door!! We are still in training and we look forward to the group work that is put ahead of us. Thanks Keen Dog for the great experience!!

Above and beyond!
KeenDog Training has been the best investment for us, and our golden retriever Ernie! The tools Katrina, Phill and Ashley have taught us continue to enable Ernie to be a happy, well trained dog who is welcomed by friends, family, stores, and anywhere dogs can go. Their training is all about letting you live a great life WITH your dog, and understanding how your dog learns and communicates. The one on one lessons are invaluable, and the lifelong group classes are fun, varied and just as helpful!

Best dog training available!
Keene dog has managed to quickly get our dogs to behave and be very focused. We have a 4 year old mini golden doodle and a 4 month old German Shepard Thanks to Keene dog in a few short lessons they both walk on leashes together, do not get distracted by other dogs/ people and know when to sit and stay. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Tucker and Captain. Keene dog saved our lives!!!
