He is the original Dog Whisperer! Since he left Chicago we’ve never been able to replace him. Our dogs miss him more than we do.

David quadrupled our adoption rate through basic obedience training. None of our dogs pull on the leash or even mouth it any more.

His passion and enthusiasm is contagious. He doesn’t just train dogs, he trains owners. Because of David we have yet to have an adoption return.

I have never seen anyone as adept as David in solving all of our problem behaviors. He’s amazing.

Well, I know David Kaye recalls Rocky Hayes!! He was a complete menace of a 2yr old Lab truly tearing my family apart. It came down to my husband or my dog (the dog was going to go). Needless to say, within hours a totally transformed dog. After completing training Rocky became a completely lovable and well mannered pooch! Compliments all around when we go out now. SO worth it!!!! David Kaye saved my family and Rocky. Great, Great trainer!!

My husband was adamant about getting rid of our dog until David arrived. She seemed impossible to house break. Within one week of working with David the problem was solved.

I own a second generation “no kill” family kennel / shelter that is a 47 year old business. I have known David Kaye of Kaye-Nine Training School since 2009. That is when he first called me looking for training work. I have had many trainers come through here but David is the only one that I have maintained a long term relationship with and I recommend him every chance I get. He is a new age trainer rather than old school. Instead of relying on old school, over bearing techniques and methods that dominate and demoralize, he instead focuses on repoIre and awareness with our dogs and understands how to use pleasure along with compulsion in a very effective way. He has been successful in modifying behavior with some of our most driven and aggressive dogs as well as our most sensitive and cerebral ones. He has donated countless hours for the welfare of our animals and has been especially attentive to our “lifer” pits who are unlikely to find a loving forever home do to drive issues. I continue to work with David and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs help developing a well adjusted relationship with their pet. He is passionate about his training and is a great teacher of method as well. Thanks for all of your hard work David!

David recently began training with our 3 year old golden, Nauset. We were having a tough time because she was extremely high energy with no boundaries or limits. We tried 3 different trainers with no luck. David was wonderful and was really generous with his time. You can tell he really cares and is so knowledgeable. I am happy to say that life with Nauset has dramatically improved. She now listens to us and is like a new dog, you can tell she thinks before acting now and respects our limits. I would highly recommend David Kaye of Kaye-Nine Training School to anyone looking for a dog trainer as he worked miracles for us!

Just a quick note of thanks to you for all the hard work in helping train me and my dog Brady to "modify" our behavior. I had been to training before somewhere else and totally failed. It was amazing that during the first consultation you were able to gain his trust and figure out the issues that were causing Brady to be so aggressive toward people and dogs and in that first session began to teach me things I could work on immediately at home to change his behavior. I never thought I would be able to have Brady around other dogs, kids, or guests in my home because of his barking and chasing them down. I am so happy to say that now after working with you at home and the dog park I feel comfortable and confident with the tools you gave me that I can control Brady in these situations. I can’t believe he is able to go to the dog park and be around other dogs without reacting and today I had 4 little kids playing in the house and he did not bark or chase them at all. It really is a miraculous change after 5 years of his bad behavior. I wish I had found you years ago! I always knew Brady was a great dog but now other people can see that too and we are all more relaxed. Thanks so much again.

Meeting David Kaye unexpectedly while at the dog park with Baxter my newly adopted Labradoodle, was ultimately a phenomenal gift to my family and our beloved pet. Baxter was a 3 month old who was rapidly growing into a large, strong dog and my walking him was becoming a challenge that greatly concerned me. As dear as Baxter is, he was stubborn and tested my attempts at discipline causing me frustration and concern that I would forever be dominated by my dogs behavior as opposed to his being responsive to my expectations of his behavior. Through David's talent, commitment, and love for his profession, within days our Baxter was transformed. As David approached our home Baxter couldn't get to him quickly enough. The love and respect my dog expressed was heartwarming. I stood speechless, as I would observe David request gently, "Baxter sit...lie down...come on...heel...break" and my darling pup answered each request with a prompt response. David would then reward Baxter with pleasure and play. As David teaches...training all about rapport... respect between the dog and owner. David then worked with me to learn the commands and use training and reward appropriately. My family and I are now loving every moment of our time with Baxter who now walks on and off leash beautifully, responds with ease to our expectations. We are so blessed to have met David who guided us through this process with his gentle and kind demeanor. We have a happy dog who is joy to be around. Baxter loves his David and so does this family. We can never thank David enough and believe that his love of these dogs and his commitment to their owners is like none other. He's a gift.

Owner of Baxter a Labradoodle, Stoughton, Ma
Our four-year old Great Dane is the sweetest and kindest dog we have ever owned. Regretfully, he had descended into a very unhappy, fearful, and anxious guy as a result of several traumatic experiences and poor family leadership. We were at our wits end having had trainers work with him to no avail. When we contacted David we were considering whether we could even keep the dog. David truly performed miracles with our Dane and converted him to a happy, contented, obedient, and delightful dog. We cannot say enough about David and his kind yet firm expectations approach to training and would recommend him without hesitation.

I moved from a house into an apartment with my two dogs. Their barking became a problem for the neighbors and the dogs needed more exercise now that they lived in a more confined space. I could not control the barking and I was afraid to take them to the dog park because of behavior issues.

David made a quick and accurate diagnosis of the situation and helped me to stop their barking and successfully introduced them to the dog park. He showed me step by step behavioral techniques and commands. They are no longer barking and they are ecstatic to go to the dog park without issue.

David offered me, in clear, concise language a way to move my dogs to better behavior. He showed me how to be dogs’ leader without being too dominating and the good behavior I needed followed.

David was responsive to our needs, making himself easily available both by telephone and in person. His intervention was greatly needed and very helpful.

I would recommend David Kaye without hesitation to anyone looking for help in managing their dog.

I am a grandmother recently diagnosed with a heart ailment that requires daily exercise. I thought wouldn’t it be nice to have a dog to force me to walk it every day. I adopted Riley, a 70lb lovable labra-doodle from the local shelter. Riley is easy going, fun loving and very friendly to people. The only real problem was when he saw another dog or squirrel he would run after them to play. The problem is he was on leash when he did. My husband became concerned for my well being. He felt Riley might unexpectedly pull me to the ground where I could be hurt. One day at the Sharon Dog Park I noticed David Kaye and how well behaved the dogs he brought to the park were off leash. He seemed to have a different dog each time! That is when I first hired David Kaye of Kaye-Nine Training School to help me. We went through his off leash training program and oh what a difference it made! I now walk Riley mostly off leash at Boarderland State Park and Sharon Dog Park. Even with squirrels and other dogs around Riley stays right by my side until I give him permission to go play. No more unexpected pulling. I highly recommend David Kaye of Kaye-Nine Training School for his patience, caring and knowledge about dog behavior. He spent countless sessions with me to not only train Riley, but to also teach me. His methods were simple and easy to adapt. Thank you again for everything!!

I recently adopted a five-year-old Cocker Spaniel from a shelter in the South. He was well behaved and got along extremely well with people, however after a few months I started noticing that Willow had aggression issues with other dogs. He would become very confrontational to the point where he could potentially harm himself or another dog. After a while this behavior started to become extremely concerning. On recommendation, a friend suggested that I reach out to David Kaye of Kaye-Nine Training School. Prior to meeting David I thought that Willow’s aggression would never be broken, however during our first session I could see a difference right away in his behavior. Not only did David teach Willow to overcome his aggression issues, he also provided me with techniques and behaviors on how to deal with specific situations. This in turn allowed me to manage my behavior and know how act as leader of the pack and gain control. I can honestly say that had it not been for David Kaye and his years of experience with dog training I truly believe that Willow would still possess aggressive tendencies and I would still be struggling to keep control. David is the dog whisperer and I would highly recommend him and his work. He is truly an individual that is committed to the well-being of you and your animal.
