Xavier is an amazing dog trainer. Schatten was like a Tasmanian devil dog ha ha. But after Xavier's help, she is now a loving, respectful and well behaved dog.
Thank you Boss K9 for all your help!
We met Xavier when we adopted our 1 year old 105 lb Cane Corso Dakota who had never been leash trained. We started with Xavier as our trainer right away and within a couple of sessions, and the right tools, we had significant improvement. Xavier taught us the right way to apply corrections and the positive reinforcements to our commands and the importance of consistency. Thanks to his guidance we have a great 'loose leash' walking dog and have people praise his behaviour.
Highly recommend as a trainer that holds both the dog and owner accountable! Thanks for all your work with us!

Xavier helped me tremendously with my Sheepadoodle. His energy with Daisy was awesome, she listened to him immediately. He has helped me to understand her personality and how to deal with her as she has fear aggression. She is a completely different dog now. After her board/obedience training she has turned out to be an amazing and loving dog. His wife and him are very kind and caring people and were always there to answer any questions or concerns I had for Daisy and even checked in on us often to see how we were doing. I highly recommend.
We have two large strong dogs and walking them, especially alone was a challenge with pulling and distractions. After Xavier helped us work with them, they have both become a breeze to walk. We can now have anyone take them for walks without the dogs pulling them over.
He has also helped us with new training techniques for dealing with the dogs getting overly excited with new people come in the front door. They now have learned to go to a specific place in the living room so it is much more calm when guests come over now.
Thank you for all your help!

We adopted our dog Sandy from a rescue. She was approximately 1 year old and had lived as a feral dog in Northern Ontario. Sandy was initially a very reactive dog that showed a lot of fear aggression towards strangers, particularly men and new situations and experiences. We contacted Xavier based on the recommendation of a friend. Xavier worked with us on establishing boundaries and trust as well as her leash manners, sit, stay, her recall and place work in our home. It is safe to say that Sandy has made a complete 180. From a dog that we didn’t trust around our children and kept the family on edge to a part of our family. This wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance from Xavier every step of the way. Thank you Xavier!
