"Prior to working with Konnie, I could not walk my Pit Bull/Shar Pei mix down the street without him dragging me the entire time. I also could not bring him anywhere due to his aggression toward people and other animals. Fast-forward three months later and I can’t believe the change in my dog. I can walk him for miles and he stays right next to me, no pulling. I can take him out in public and he pays attention to me, not other people or animals. I have a completely new relationship with my dog. I’ve even had multiple people stop and tell me what a well behaved dog I have! What is even better than the quick success we’ve had with his behavior is I now have the tools where I feel confident that I can handle Tank in any situation that I may encounter in the future." -- Chris O'Neill

"I have known Konnie for over 9 years. I attended one k9 handler class and from that point I knew she was my yoda. I received my boy K9 Kenai in 2008. At the time he was 11 months old. I used all of my knowledge received from watching and learning from other handlers. It was an uphill challenge from day one with Kenai. His drive and commitment was never a problem, the problem was the handler. Konnie was able to convince me that I should leave Kenai with her. I finally agreed, and that was the best move I made. After one week Konnie advised me that I could return and pick Kenai up. That’s right, one week later! Upon my return and to my amazement Kenai was a totally different dog. Konnie introduced me to a brand new dog and showed how to handle dogs with intense drive and focus. Konnie was able to show me how to use the drive and channel it to an amazing disaster search and rescue dog. I was able to pass susar K9 Type 2 Certification test within weeks after returning. K9 Kenai and I have been on deployments and Kenai has performed very well under pressure. Konnie is still my contact for any issues that may arise and problems I have. Konnie Hein is truly knowledgeable in K9 behavior, problems and solutions. Her personality makes training easy on handler and enjoyable for both k9 and partner. Thank you!" --Robert Hickson

"Sophia is doing much better thanks to you!
No accidents outside the crate since you were here! Margaret is having a lot of fun training her. She has definitely got sit and stay down pat. She no longer bolts for the door, but will wait until we say “free”. Still working on lay down and heel.
All in all, she seems more calm, now that she knows clearly what we expect. I am very grateful for your help." --Sczcygiel Family
"We recently completed a 6 session course with Konnie to help us with our adopted 100 lb pit-mastiff mix Zeus. She taught us how to train him by rewarding good behaviors and correcting bad behaviors. At the onset we wanted helped to gain physical control over our dog who had previously attacked other dogs and was a danger to the safety of people he did not know. While we achieved our expectations in terms of gaining physical control over him (walks nicely on a leash, comes when called, goes to his bed when commanded to do so, etc) it was the unexpected changes to behavior that we are most impressed with. He is SO much calmer now we cannot believe it. His random barking at the front door has stopped, he calms quickly after hearing the doorbell, and he makes friends with new people in just a few minutes (previously required many hours or days to accomplish this). In short, we highly recommend Konnie to anyone in need of training for their dog." -- Andy Brusoe
"Zeus" looking super happy!
