Doggy daycare is outstanding! A beautiful park like setting! After taking my dog through training at Canyon Crest K-9 Training Center I decided to give their doggy daycare a try. I would recommend this place to everyone. It is such a great feeling knowing and seeing my dog interact with dogs and staff. She feels so comfortable there. I really appreciate the synthetic turf that was used in the building. No concrete floors! I have checked out other daycare facilities and a lot or inside. I appreciate the fact that this daycare facility allows the dog to go inside or outside...they make the choice. Thank you Canyon Crest for an awesome daycare!

I have a 1 year old Boxer that has been able to partake in almost all of Canyon Crest's wonderful programs. When our family first got Penelope we enrolled her in their Puppy training class. The class was great it taught us so much. And anytime we had any questions about things Penelope was doing at home ( jumping on our 3 year old son) we could ask any of the instructors and they would give helpful feedback. In the beginning of the class all the puppy's get to "socialize" with each other in a safe environment. My husband took her to the obedience training class when she was about 9 months old. It's really amazing that by just my husbands hand signals she will following his directions. After Penelope completed the Obedience training she gets to participate in a fun refresher class once a month on Saturdays. We have also boarded her there 3 or 4 times, once with late notice and Patti made arrangements to get her in. Penelope also gets to have play time once or twice a week at their Doggy Daycare. SHE LOVES IT, when I pick her up she's just pooped. And I know that she's safe and being well taken care of. Canyon Crest K-9 Center is one of a kind! The owners are great and their staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The center is always clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend them for your pup!

A must for dog owners who want the most of their relationship with their dogs, want their dog to be the happiest and / or a dog that has some challenges to help him / her be its best and fit into a humans world, The training is a language the dog understands with focus to train the owner. My dog, a black lab love this place. She begins wagging her tail and making little noises as we leave I5. I simple love Ron's focus on the very best for each dog (and really mine!)!

Re: training my deaf pup. My experience(s) at Canyon Crest K-9 training center with Ron Pace and his staff have been nothing short of excellent. I have been working with Ron and Janet with my 7 month old Irish Terrier, Darby, on basic training complicated by the fact that Darby is deaf. Relying primarily on hand signals and a paging collar and utilizing Ron's training system Darby and I have established excellent communication and her training has progressed better than I had ever envisioned. Ron's basic training principles were ideally suited to training a deaf puppy and have given me a sense of confidence in my ability to continue her training as well as a great sense of relief knowing I can control my dog and keep her safe. I have worked with Ron 3 times since 1990 with 3 different dogs bearing vastly different personalities. I am convinced Ron and his staff can handle any dog related challenges (and most owner related challenges) with professionalism and humane compassion. I recommend Canyon Crest K-9 Training Center to anyone who loves their dog and wants to get the most out of their K-9 companion and themselves as a dog owner.

I have been taking my German Shepherd Marnie to training @ Canyon Crest K-9 Training Center for the last year and a half. She was very shy and timid when we purchased her from a breeder a couple of years ago. She has come a long way since I enrolled her in classes Canyon Crest. I am sure there are other good obedience training facilities around, but Ron and his trainers are in a class of their own. When I heard they were opening a doggy daycare there, I was really excited. Marnie was there on opening day and I have been taking her there on a regular basis ever since. Ron's whole center is beautiful!!! What's more important than that is that even the daycare is part of the training facility. The dogs there have to be evaluated before they are allowed to attend. Once there they have to behave and show good manners. I wouldn't dream of leaving Marnie anywhere else.

I have 3 dogs: a 6 year old Silky Terrier, 4 year old Westhighland White Terrier, and a 2 year old Newfoundland. The small ones are neutered, the big dog, intact. We have been to daycares in Gig Harbor and Fox Island; but the facilities and quality of care were no where near what you will get at Canyon Crest [for the same price or less] The facility is impeccably clean. There is a sheltered area with dog crates of every size so that the dogs can rest or retreat if they want. The shelter also opens up to a beautiful grassy fenced in lawn. In other words the dogs have freedom to be indoors or out and also have plenty of space to romp and play. This is the only if not one of perhaps a few facitilies that will accept an intact dog. Unlike other places that put all of the dogs together in a free for all to merely be "watched," this facility is staffed by trainers who interact with your dogs and nip any problems in the bud. They make sure that manners are instilled in the dogs under their care. If you were to visit, you would notice that immediately. They also have awesome boarding, dog grooming, and training. The kennels are clean and the grooming although not advertised to be "full service" is exceptional. This facility is about 10 minutes from downtown Tacoma. So if you work in the area, this would be the best choice for day care. I visited several of the facilities in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, and even Kitsap county, and none of them came even close to the quality of care and facility standards as Canyon Crest. Check out their website and Facebook page and you will see what I mean. Everything they do is absolutley first class. The training program is top notch and worth every penny as well: all you need to do is observe a Saturday group class or observe the graduates in day care, and you will be sold. This place really is the best kept secret for everything "dog" in the South Sound. I'd give them 100 stars if I could.

The trainers here are so helpful and informative! My dog loved coming into be trained and was even excited to see the trainers, if that isn't a sign that these people are true genuine dog lovers then I don't know what is! My dog is the most well behaved little lady now, thank you so much Canyon Crest!

In December I finished basic obedience with my 7 month old German Shepherd. I've also taken another German Shepherd and an Australian Shepherd through the classes over the last 15 years. My dogs are well-behaved, happy and confident after the course. Not to mention I'm a much happier owner. I highly recommend Ron and the Ron Pace Method of training for any breed of dog. Because the classes are private (except for the group classes following the 10 private lessons) you get a lot of attention from Ron or his highly trained instructors. The facilities are extremely clean and I can't say enough about the love Ron has for dogs and their owners.
