Belle would bark and alert at anyone and everyone walking by or stopping by at the door. She would also pull very hard while on walks.
We recommended a private lesson program for Brenda who had previous experience as a show dog handler. We helped Brenda & Belle understand what Belle’s role are within their house, help identify and clarify what clear cut boundaries Brenda wanted for belle, as well as how to walk properly beside Brenda and her husband.
We were having trouble with our four year old boxer when people would come to the door. She would bark like crazy and just be obnoxious. We were at our wit’s end. I saw an ad for Blue Chip K9 on the internet and called for an evaluation. We took her for her evaluation and met Dwayne. His easy going manner and knowledge won us over from the start. I started taking lessons and working with Belle under his direction. The change in Belle already is remarkable. She has calmed down so much with the lessons and we have been able to apply them to everyday living. For example she is learning to go to her bed or place and we can teach her that when she hears the doorbell or someone knocking to go to her place and stay. No more going crazy at the door. She is also learning basic manners and heeling when walking. Dwayne is very patient with both Belle and I. He is very encouraging and explains the why behind the lessons which makes it easy for me to understand. It has been such a wonderful experience working with Dwayne and Blue Chip K9. I am so, so glad we found them.
Prince was your typical juvenile pup. Jumping, not listening, running away, destructive behaviors, and pulling on a leash.
Prince was the ideal pup for one of our board & train programs. We taught him clear communication, boundaries, and gave him tasks and goals to work towards which provided Prince with the much-needed mental stimulation. Once Price begin applying his energy and brain power towards goals that were outlined for him, he shaped up and looked extra crisp!
We absolutely consider ourselves family with the ownership of Blue Chip K9. Our relationship has expanded far beyond the initial training of Prince. From our first interview, we knew he was the trainer for our new family member. Our consultation was very thorough in explaining our dogs actions and what his training expertise would do to correct his deficiencies. What we received was a “new” and obedient family member. The personal touch that Dewayne and staff provides is excellent follow-on training that includes home training at our home. Further, we stay in contact with Dewayne and Blue Chip K9 through their boarding service. We are extremely thankful for it because we wouldn’t dream of leaving Prince with anyone else. You cannot go wrong with Blue Chip K9!!!
Dillon’s family reached out as they had all of the normal issues of barking, jumping, pulling on a leash, but Dillon also needed confidence and trust building.
We recommended a private lesson route to help Dillon’s owners understand the root cause of Dillon’s behaviors and how to address them. After completing the program, her owners wanted more so we customized an off leash training plan for Dillon based off of where she was with her private lesson training previously.
Blue Chip K9 is absolutely fantastic! Our dog Dillon was a huge disruption to our family when we brought her home. We found them online and reached out for help. We chose to go through private training with Blue Chip K9 and they taught us how to train ourselves. The staff was very open and honest about steps and how to achieve them. We loved the private training so much that we enrolled Dillon in a month long board and train off leash training. Our dog now is so well trained it’s unbelievable. We get comments about her behavior all the time when we are out. My family and I cannot recommend Blue Chip K9 enough!

Dog was not obedient. Wouldn’t come back when called, jumps on people.
Created a specific training plan designed for Lady Bird in which we found the best way to communicate what we wanted from lady bird in a language that she truly understood. This brought the absolute best effort out of her which is all she needed to shine!
I can’t say enough good things about Blue Chip K9. Dewayne was so patient with my dog Lady Bird. He put us completely at ease and was able to break down the training into very simple ways for us to understand, not to mention he was just so animated and made everything seem so easy. He has great technique and is a natural with dogs. With three kids, he was able to help us build, structure and set boundaries which helped her– and met our needs as a family of 5. Lady Bird learned so much and came back to us a completely different dog. She is so chill now and is able to play with my kids now without a problem. THANK YOU for making my Lady Bird into the perfect dog!
The family just wanted to start off on the right foot with training because of the breed of the puppy.
Worked with the family to highlight and prepare Boone for living in an ever changing human world. We practiced and shaped obedience behaviors but more importantly we put a heavy focus and emphasis on the socialization and environmental confidence building. This helps the dog become more confident in themselves, in you as the handler, and how to deal with whatever the world throws at them.
After getting our new pup we knew we wanted a well trained family member and called Dewayne to learn more about his training programs. Since Boone was only 3 months old we got started with his puppy program. It was a four week program to set the foundation for the parents as well as the puppy. All the basics like socializing and consistent communication sets the stage for your dog’s future. The puppy program gives you all steps to follow as well as a better understanding of how your puppy learns. Armed with that knowledge and consistency of some homework you will be very happy with the results. Chessies are an intelligent and strong willed breed and Dewayne with Blue Chip K9 has put our pup on the right path just for him. We have moved on to Private lessons and now have a 6 month old pup that is on his way to a well behaved and obedient family member. I highly recommend Blue Chip K9 and give Dewayne 5 stars for his training and personal attention. If you have a new family member don’t delay, call Dewayne now!

I was in disbelief when I saw my dog Rico on our first go home lesson. Dewayne helped Rico not pull on a leash anymore, he has made our time outside so much more enjoyable when we go on walks. They also helped me understand how to communicate better with Rico. In the end I realized that they were not only training Rico, but the program was also training myself. Dewayne helped me understand that Rico wanted to make me happy and do the right thing, we just had to find the right way to let him know what we were asking for. I cannot say enough good things about Blue Chip K9 and what they did with Rico, it was a complete transformation!
