What Our Clients Say...

A few weeks after rescue, Lawrence started showing signs of dog aggression only when leashed, which was confusing. At home – fine. Out and about on a leash, he started lunging, and at one point he grabbed a 4-mo Maltese puppy in his mouth and shook her.aa We were TERRIFIED that our dear Lawrence was animal aggressive and unadoptable. He also had many scars on his forearms – we thought, was he a fighting dog? A bait dog? Will he ever be adoptable? How did we not see the signs??Angela Halfman
That’s when I met Yasin of Empire K-9. He told me what I didn’t want to hear – that despite Lawrence’s good behavior at home, where he was fine with other dogs, his behavior in public while leash NEEDED to be addressed and could be corrected with work. Yasin taught us rescue people how to properly train and handle a pitbull with a past. We moved Lawrence through his sense of insecurity when leashed, and despite the trauma it was a sign of, we moved him forward.
We developed a sense of confidence first with one-on-one basic training, then behavior modification (he learned how to react effectively to other dogs and that he did not have to be defensive when leashed, regardless of his past), then pack training. His experience changed our mindset as a rescue and we now have invaluable knowledge that has helped us to work with other dogs we’ve rescued with unknown, yet obviously troubled pasts.

“I have recently completed a basic obedience package and it has done Ben Wardorswonders for my dog. I am now signed up for personal protection package. I have a pure bred american pitbull, red nose, with high drive. Going through these sessions have helped me take control of my dog and have taught me how to properly train a dog with high drive. I started seeing a difference after the first session!”

 Empire K9 is great for anyone who has problems training there dog or has any dog behavioral problems, if you’re new to training your own dog Empire K9 is the place to go. My experience with Empire K9 has been Stephen Leeawesome! I didn’t know much about dog training until i met Yasin Ali, he’s taught me the Empire K9 method it was very easy and effective. My German Shepherd picked up really quickly. He’s taught me how to become that pack leader. I can now take my well behaved German Shepherd anywhere.
