Client Testimonials

Canine Solutions’ Foundation Class was really an eye-opener for me. I had gained a lot of knowledge from the class – in terms of engaging, luring and creating new experiences for my dog through positive reinforcements. Ken, the trainer, is one who is knowledgeable and most willing to answer any queries. I would definitely encourage dog owners to go for this Foundation Class to understand and build better rapport with their dogs!
Rose, attended Foundation Class with Sushi

Ken covered everything well, especially as we had Q&A in between the practical part. I especially appreciate it when Ken broke down the practical part into simple steps – when to say the word and reward timing.
Felita, attended Foundation Class with Whiskey

The course lesson theory and practical (is) very useful in our everyday dealings with our dogs. Also explained and demonstrated the techniques and it has made it easier to manage, engage and understand our dog’s behaviour
Wesley, attended Foundation Class with Becca

Good listener and observant trainer, pays attention to every single detail! Ken is also very generous in terms of sharing his knowledge and experience.
