I’m a resident physician and just had a baby and we needed our lab Cooper to learn some boundaries. Luckily we had access to TipTopK9 and by the time my maternity leave was over, he could heel on a walk without a leash! Everyone has been so knowledgable and engaged; you can tell they love our pup as much as we do and are the absolute experts at what they do! Thank you so much! ❤️

Amazing! My dog was dog and human aggressive and Denver helped get him manageable again! We can now go on walks without having to worry about running into people or animals! Highly recommended!

Tip Top K9 of Arkansas was amazing!!! They was very professional and kept us up-to-date on all of the progress that was taking place. Before Tip Top K-9 of Arkansas my dog was jumping on everyone, wouldn’t listen, and pulled when walking to name a few things. Now he’s so well-behaved. He sits on command, he walks so easily I actually enjoy walking him now! I would definitely recommend them for your dog training needs.

My 5.5 month puppy was crazy until I started working with Sarah and Denver this month. He is becoming obedient and a better listener through the good dog private trainings.

Tip Top has been everything the name suggests! We rescued a lovable ball of high energy and The results with tip too have been nothing short of astounding. Our quality of life has improved and our dogs quality of life has skyrocketed. Could not recommend more!

We have two older adult dogs that came to us as rescues. Walking them was way too much drama with one instigating aggressive barking and lunging at any person (or other dog or bicycle or yard decoration) he encountered. Much too many additional challenges to list but I thought we had hopeless cases. Denver and the other staff we worked with at Tip Top K9 were amazing professionals in every way. Their techniques are safe and effective. So effective that walking through our neighborhood is now fun and relaxing instead of the gauntlet of shame it used to be. At our final exam, we walked around our local Home Depot. With all the strange people, noises and distractions, we didn’t see any aggressive behavior - not a single bark. Thanks Tip Top K9.

We had contacted TipTopK9 for our 1 1/2 yr old German Shepherd Wrigley. When Denver came to our house and showed us what they could do we decided to send our 3 yr old Riley also. Denver, Sam and Sara always answered any questions that I had and made me feel very comfortable in letting them have our dogs for a while. We just got Riley back today and wow! What a difference. Sara did a great job with her. I took her to Lowe’s immediately after her homecoming party. Normally she would be jumping out of her skin to get out of the car, but now it’s not total chaos. I was able to walk her calmly around. She sat and stayed while I walked all the way down the isle. I’m able to keep her under control and now she can go with me everywhere! TipTopK9 has been wonderful with our dogs. Would recommend them to any dog owner. Thank you Denver, Sara and Sam!

Before tip top ruger would jump knock me down and pull on the leash. Now he is so much better! Thank you tip top! And I love group class after training!

Aphrodite was a mess before we sent her to tip top k9. She would jump, pull, and was biting before we sent her. She is a completely different dog now! Sam and Jim did an amazing job with her! Thank you Tip Top! She looks in amazing in yellow too!

I’m here to pick up Mia!!! She is been trained by TipTopK9 Arkansas. She’s learned so much and they’ve done an excellent job with her! She just finished the Superstar package and she can now walk off leash, sit and lay down 100 meters away, and even jump on fire hydrants! The people here at TipTopK9 Arkansas are great, and I recommend them to everyone!

We are extremely impressed with the progress our German Shepherd Samson made during his advanced obedience bootcamp. I now have complete confidence in my ability to control his attention when we're out in public. He was extremely reactive toward people just walking down the street, and after he lunged at the Wal-Mart grocery employee while in the car, I knew we had to get help. He had already failed with one trainer. It's been 2 weeks, and he just keeps getting better. I feel like his overall energy has improved perhaps now that we have to freedom to play in the front yard and go on morning runs in the dark without fear. I love that we can continue learning and working on his skills in the lifetime group classes. We can't thank Tip-Top K9 enough for all their hard work!

I sent my dog, Hazel, to Tip Top K9 Advanced Obedience Boot Camp. She was there for about 3 weeks. While she was there she learned sit, lay, place, heel, quiet, and off. After her 3 weeks there she was brought home to me, where I spent about 2 hours with Denver where he taught me how to properly use the commands with Hazel. She was very responsive with me. I will continue to work with her and take her to weekly group classes. I would highly recommend Tip Top K9 Training. I had a great experience and I can tell Hazel really loved the trainers. I have an awesome dog now that I will continue to work with!

We loved our experience with training our German shepherd Blair. Blair struggled to do many activities and follow directions. She didn’t listen well to commands at all but came back to us a different dog but with the same personality. We are so pleased!!!

When we started training, Daisy was hyper active, would not obey commands, and would go after our cats. After training with Sam and Denver, she has immensely improved! She listens and no longer chases our cats. Daisy sits in place and no longer pulls during walks. I would recommend Tip Top K9 to anyone who needs training.

My husband and I could not be happier. Before our German Shepherd went to boot camp were unable to take him out in public. Because we wanted to take him to do all kinds of fun activities outdoors, we needed help. Before, Kaiser did not listen to commands outside of our yard, pulled on the leash, and had multiple other behavioral issues, including possible dog aggression. We would spend hours and hours every week working with him to no avail. Sad and desperate to be able to take our doggy on fun adventures with us, we called Tip-top K9. Complete 180! Beyond satisfied with the results. We are headed out to explore the world and Kaiser's coming with us!!!

We started off with a wild and aggressive 10 month old pup. Thanks to Denver, Sara, and Sam, we now know how to manage her better. She is a work in progress, but now we have the tools to make a good dog.

Jax was really struggling with his behavior before we decided to invest in training. He was constantly barking and showing signs of aggression. After the Advanced Obedience training he is a totally different dog. He still has all his fun quirks, but we are in control and feel confident we can take him anywhere.

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.

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!
