Ron, Patti and the entire training staff are the most knowledgeable and effective training team I've ever encountered. My first GSD had aggression issues & Ron's expertise literally saved my dog from being put down. We're now training our 2nd GSD & their methods are revealing amazing results already!

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!

I've known Ron and Patti since the early 1980's. I've shown dogs in competition for many years. There is no better trainer/program than Canyon Crest.

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.

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.
