Man, these guys did wonders with my German Shepherd. He was a rowdy pup before the superstar program and I was worried of his aggression towards other people and dogs. TipTopK9 resolved all of his behavioral issues and even trained me to be a more confident owner. Thank you guys for your outstanding training and advice!!! Much love.

We have been so impressed with our experience with Tip Top K9! From the moment we first started with them, their friendliness and knowledge won us over. Sarah was so wonderful with our Magnum and he will miss her now that he is "graduating!" We could not recommend them more!

Our dog trainer Denver was absolutely great! We have a dog that we were scared to take out in public and made us look like crazy people every time we put him on a leash. Tip top was a last resort as we were considering re-homing with my wife pregnant with our first child.This has completely changed with just a few lessons. Even after the first 15 minutes there was almost new leash pulling and he’s learning to obey his commands. He’s a changed dog and getting better each week. We’d recommend Denver and Tip Top to anyone!

Excellent training. Before we started my dog Kujo was aggressive to unknown humans and dogs. His attention span has vastly improved. His aggression is much better. Sarah and Denver are awesome, they have trained us well and been very patient with us.

Our dog crystal is a 1 year old husky, who would NOT listen, she jumped, chewed and would refuse to listen to any command or Walk on leash, now after we used Tip Top K9 advanced obedience boot camp, we have. Whole new dog! She is absolutely amazing! Our trainer Sam went above and beyond with walking us through the steps to continue training. We went to the mall and walked and she was amazing! I can’t recommend them enough!

I can’t recommend Tip Top K9 enough. Our dog Lucy went through the Problem Solver course. From the consultation through return home visit, we had nothing but positive experiences. Sam was able to give us extensive instruction on what to expect during the course and with the follow through when our dog returned home. Sara was was our dog’s primary trainer and was able to make amazing progress week to week. The staff provided us with weekly progress reports and pictures to show our progress. The overall experience was fantastic and I would recommend their services to everyone.

I have a 2 year old Corgi that was pulling on his leash, aggressive towards guests at the door, among other issues and Denver Worked wonders with both myself and Tucker. Tucker is a totally different dog because of Denver’s training!!! If I could give 10 stars I would!

Our dog Oreo just completed the advanced boot camp with Sara. He would jump on the kids when they where outside playing and would nip at their heals. Inside he would potty all over everything and when we took him outside he would take forever to go to the potty. Now he sits and doesn't jump on the kids. He will place when he is told.

When I first took my dog Arya she was a naughty butt. She had multiple problem areas including jumping, biting, and just listening in general. Sara worked with her for almost 3 weeks and Arya is now the best little baby ever.

We travel all of the time for work. Our Great Dane, Mazie, goes everywhere with us. She was very entergetic and hard to walk. She would bounce from one bed to the other in hotel rooms. Now after training she is a totally different dog. She does not pull on the leash when walking. She stays by our side off leash. Thanks, Sam, Sara, and Denver.

Our puppy Tank came home today, and all I can say is I’m Amazed. Before he went to Advanced Boot Camp he was unruly, not enjoyable, and we were wondering had we made the right choice of getting a dog. Upon his return home, We are in love with our Tank again!! We are able to see the love that Sara and Sam had for him as well. My 10 year old is finally going to be able to walk him without us being concerned of him pulling her into the street. I can not wait to utilize and continue the training with him. Lifelong family and lifelong investment for sure!!!! So grateful for TipTop!

My dog Thor was an adorable NIGHTMARE before going to doggie boot camp with Sara (his trainer) I couldn’t take him on a walk, he would jump on everyone, and barked so much the neighbors complained. After he came home I was floored when he didn’t jump on me or bark at the cat and I can take him on a walk with my toddler now he doesn’t pull and stays right by me. Sam and Denver were amazing helping me learn the commands and made me feel at ease if I had any further questions. Thank you so much!!! Would highly highly recommend!

Absolutely amazing. Sam did a wonderful job training my dog Tipton. He looks like a brand new dog. He loves the training and catches on extremely quickly. Sam took us through all the steps and was extremely thorough. She was quick to make sure that both Tipton and I were tested and passed. The extensive knowledge and confidence coming from Sam was a good feeling and reassured us that Tipton was getting the best training. I love this!

This training works! We love what Sam at Tip Top K9 Fort Smith has taught us. Our dog, Sampson, is a huge lovable dog that had a few issues that they've helped us address. The included lifetime group classes are a valuable part of this company's services, and we're looking forward to being there for them as often as possible.

We love Samantha and everything she did for us. We were going to have to get rid of our dog because he has become so aggressive to everyone. Now he is so friendly and well behaved that other people comment on him! He is a joy to have around and is so smart he picks up on training so quickly! We would not have known this if we hadn’t allowed Samantha to train him! Thank you Samantha and Tip Top K9 of Fort Smith.

We have 2 dogs, one extremely reactive to people(Oliver), and the other a puppy(Ruby). Oliver made me nervous just to let him outside to potty, and now we can go in public places without worrying about him barking and lunging at people. Ruby has developed manners and does very well on leash. Both are very responsive to commands and we are so proud of them! Thank you, Denver and Tip Top!

Love the training my Lucy got. I was afraid I would trip over her when walking, she jumped on everyone. Now she is calm, doesn’t jump and will walk long side without pulling me.. love the friendly service from office staff, and the Sam and Denver were awesome. The trainers Sam and Denver did an amazing job with her and gave weekly updates.. would recommend to any one in Tulsa, Fayettville and Fort Smith areas. Thanks everyone!

My dog Reese was trained very well in such a short time. We thought that we were going to have to get rid of her, but now she’s a very good dog. Thank you Tip Top!

Trainer is punctual and knowledgeable. I love that they come to your home. Lessons are in my yard and around my neighborhood. The trainer, Sam, teaches us new stuff every week and gives assignments for practice. With our busy schedule, I didn’t always have the time to practice and perfect the assignments as much I would have liked, so I would have liked more than a week between each session. Other than that, it has been a great experience and looking forward to group lessons. My dog is so much better.

Some of our recent Happy Fort Smith dog training cients:

Bella the Golden Retriever

Bella was an out of control golden retriever puppy who couldn’t wait to climb you then pull you down the street.  Her heart was in the right place, but she was definitely a handful.  Because of her bad habits her owners Mike and Nicole couldn’t really take Bella for a walk or anywhere else for that matter!

After 4 weeks of Bootcamp, her life has drastically changed for the better.  Now instead of running to and jumping all over new people, she sits at your feet and waits for love to come to her.  No need to worry about pulling on the leash either, Bella is now 100% off leash!

Lucy the Husky!

Lucy was just a small town pup trying to make it in the big city.  Her favorite hobbies were helping herself to the family dinner and long walks around the park pretending she was a sled dog. She hated car rides and listening to anyone who was talking to her. 

Now after 6 weeks of training, she has pulled herself together and is a model citizen.  She still loves walks around the park, but takes a relaxed stroll instead of sprinting to the end of the leash.  She no longer tries to sneak food from the counter when your back is turned, and can instead stay on her bed and watch dinner being made from the living room.

Lulu the Doodle!

Lulu was just your everyday Doodle puppy.  What she lacked in coordination, she more than made up for with crazy.  She was an escape artist and would love to be chased around the neighborhood and parkour through the house!

After just 4 weeks of private in-home training, she had a new lease on life.  Instead of taking off down the street every time the front door was opened, she now just stays on her cot.  Lulu still has her same loving and affectionate personality, but now channels her energy into running laps around the backyard pool instead of the neighborhood!
