This is one of the best training places I have seen. I had my German Shepherd puppy with Kaye-Nine Training School for a week and got back a beautifully well-trained puppy! David works with your dog and more importantly YOU too. I was told the dog is easy, the owner not always so. That was true in my case, but David’s patience paid off and even this “old dog” learnt enough to handle her good dog! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
Rocky – The Family Menace, 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
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!
Brady – Maltipoo Madness, 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.
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!

Riley the wonder 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.
David Kaye helped my wife and I keep our dog! After my wife and I adopted our GSD, we started to have some issues with her. She was acting aggressive toward other dogs out on walks, redirecting on me and even lunging at cars. We tried positive reinforcement training, doggy boot camp and other techniques to correct her issues. Nothing worked, until we met David Kaye. David taught my wife and I how to be better leaders and hold our dog accountable. Our GSD, is also able to interact and play with all of the dogs that David has in his adventure walk program. Our dog is a completely different dog. Since we met David I am able to walk her without fear that she will redirect on me or become aggressive toward another dog. David’s methods are truly magical and helped us to keep a very important member of our family.
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.
We are huge fans of David and his training methods. We adopted a southern stray, Wrangler, last October. Wrangler was very sick and malnourished when we got him, so he was very chill and didn’t do a whole lot. Once we nursed him back to health, we realized we had more on our hands than we could handle (aggressive, guarding, sub-par recall). We did a training course with another local trainer, who taught Wrangler some basic commands I could have taught him on my own, but they did nothing to correct his behavior issues. After doing some searching, we found David and decided to give him a try. He spent a lot of time with us in our home and his facility to train both us and Wrangler. This was great as it got Wrangler to a place where he was no longer guarding the home. After that, we still noticed that Wrangler had leash reactivity issues, so we worked with David to get Wrangler on a stim collar. We’ve talked with other friends who have their dogs on this kind of training, and are 110% positive we found the best in David. Now we have a happy, well-adjusted dog, and an awesome, reliable place to board our dog when we go on vacation. I can see how some people may not like David’s methods, but give him a shot. Yes, he can come across as tough at first, but he’s just telling it like it is and isn’t one to sugarcoat. If you can’t handle the truth, then maybe David isn’t the trainer for you. But if you want real results and skills that can help you and your dog live happier lives, then give David a shot. He’s the best and you can tell he really loves the dogs and has their best interests in mind.
I think the bottom line here is that I do not dread walks with our pup anymore thanks to David. We had tried several trainers, and they just didn’t work for our pit bull mix. David taught me how to handle her, kept her for several days for training, and the change was enormous. It gets better every day. Our dog loves him, and loves going to daycare and boarding. I just highly recommend giving David a shot with your dog.
David trained two of our dogs, a four-month-old basset hound Lucy and a nine-year-old dalmatian Mia. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks and they are WRONG! The dalmatian has always been an aggressive dog. We never took the time to train her or understand her needs. When Lucy came along, Mia was rather aggressive to her. David, no doubt, has the talent and experience training not only well behaved dogs but also those with behavior and aggression issues. In our case, it was also training the owners in addition to the dogs and understanding their unmet needs. David’s training has exceeded my expectations and every single dollar spent was well worth it. When we got the dogs back I was hoping for a peaceful coexistence. Weeks later seeing these two guys running around in the snow and playing like they are best friends was not even a dream. Lucy and Mia are doing extremely well. Thank you, David!
