Top notch service with attention to details. My foster just spent 4 days in the new boarding area and it was just like he was home. Sleeping in a chair all day with people attending to his every need. Clean environment and a happy dog. …

We had a terrible experience with a previous trainer. I'm so glad we found Mark, he's so dedicated to our dog, to undoing the bad training, and to teaching us to be good dog parents.

Thank You! I am excited to see Moira's progress.

We had a great experience with our boxer, who had no training. Mark helped us to have more loving control, teach rather than insist, and be patient.

Response from business owner

Thank You and it was a pleasure to have you at TuxedosK9. Look forward to having you in class again soon.

Mark (Tuxedo's K9) is exceptional. His level of commitment and caring to all his four legged clients and their families is second to none. We've been perplexed by a skin allergy issue around our little Lola's eye area and he's helped …

Scout wasn't well socialized with other dogs. I brought him to Tuxcedo K9 and Mark worked with us to get him to play with other dogs. He started with an hour at a time 3 days a week. Now he will go all day and loves it! He will whine and …

I Hit The Jackpot!

I met Mark in the Fall of 2011 when I adopted a new terrier. I had not trained a dog in many years and wanted the new dog to get a good start with us. I hit the jackpot! Mark is a true professional. He cares about the dog to be trained and what its place will be in its new family. He has a patient and quiet manner. He is very knowledgeable about various breeds and canine behavior. He worked with me and the new dog in our home, and I plan on continuing my dog’s training with Mark in a class with other dogs soon.

He Worked His Magic

Our beautiful and misbehaved dog was a rescue, although we are not sure what we resuced him from. He was so Alpha, his Alpha had Alpha. Mark came just in time. He worked his magic and our beloved dog is a wonderful part of our family! We were concerned that if we trained ourselves and our dog,he would loose his freedom and exuberance.As Mark said, with freedom comes responsibility and we could not be happier with the results. Our dog is as happy today as the day we got him and we could not be happier! Thank you Mark for changing our lives for the better!!!

He Cares Very Much About Your Dog And You

I have taken other dogs to training classes, but Mark is by far the best trainer I have had the pleasure to work with. He cares very much about your dog and you and wants both to succeed. My dog made tremendous strides in just 2 weeks. He had never gone to a training class prior to this and went into the intermediate class because the time worked out best. Mark did not send him back to the basic level and continued to encourage myself and Jack to keep trying. My husband and family (who did not attend the classes) are very impressed with how far Jack came in 6 weeks. I hope to take a good citizen canine class from Mark in the future. I want to add that Mark’s assistant Michelle was a tremendous help as well.

He is truly my “Buddy” now!

When I first met Buddy he jumped all over me… pawing me… mauling me… nipping my hands and legs and arms (ow!). Buddy loves to jump – but is was keeping anyone from getting close to him, including me.

Mark Patrick, Tuxedo’s K9 Dog Trainer, has effectively changed Buddy’s behavior from “out-of-control” to a handsome, POLITE young dog who is a pleasure for anyone to meet and greet. If you tell Buddy to SIT – he SITS, WAIT – he WAITS, etc… He still trembles all over with excitement about your visit – but now he sits trembling, waiting for your greeting.

Mark is the most patient trainer I have ever seen in action. He is also CONSISTENT with his training – no matter how many times he has to repeat his instructions to Buddy, he does so in a calm and controlled manner. He goes the extra mile to insure that everyone involved with his canine client is aware of how THEY should behave and what they need to do, in order to help in the behavioral adjustment of his trainee. Mark is aware of every detail that may be hindering his client’s progress – and always an advocate for his canine client’s safety and best interests. Mark is truly your dog’s best friend… because he enables your dog to bond with YOU. Thank you, Mark, for enabling me to get closer to Buddy.

Mark’s Ability To Connect With animals Is Uncanny!!

We adopted Sassy from a lady who was forced to undergo knee replacement surgery and could no longer care for her. She had some emotional issues due to interaction with other dogs. Mark’s kind, caring and supportive instruction benefited Sassy AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, MY FAMILY, more than words could ever describe. Mark is an outstanding human being and his ability to immediately connect with animals is uncanny.

With 2 Young boys and A Puppy, Mark Turned Our Crazy House Around!!

I cannot thank Mark enough for his help with our Golden Retriever Daisy. Mark was a great help in turning our crazy house around as we have 2 young boys and a year old retriever. Mark came to our house every Sunday for 6 weeks and with his patience and training techniques turned Daisy into a wonderful part of our family. He took the time to work with all of us including the boys to help train us in training Daisy. Daisy has improved her behavior tremendously and the boys have overcome their fear of her with Mark’s help. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of training. We all miss his weekly visits!!!!

The McCann Family

He Gives Everyone an Opportunity to Share

Three levels of experience in our family attended training with Mark: new pet owner, seasoned pet owner who never had formal training and relatively pet owner with some obedience training class attendance. We each brought in a different breed to train. Mark is very knowledgeable! I waited awhile to get in a class because I wanted a trainer who appreciated the relationship between animal and human not just someone who knew how to train an animal. While he teaches the simple fundamentals of obedience training, he also addresses issues and avoids potential issues as he gives everyone an opportunity to share “what’s going on.” We, humans as well as dog, benefited greatly through Mark’s instruction and commitment. Thank you Mark!

Mark’s Suggestions Were Clear And Concise… And They Worked, Sometimes Instantly!

We bought Moses spur of the moment. We weren’t really looking for a dog, but he found us. He was bright, loving and a smart little man, none of which comes without challenges because he was smart. I first called Mark over a potty training issue. His suggestions worked instantly! We quickly found out that we needed a bit more assistance in training Moses. We set up time for Mark to come out and EVERY lesson Moses shined! Mark’s suggestions and directions were clear and concise. We were able to get specific training for us and Moses for the particular issues that were going on. Each lesson Moses mastered a trick. Mark’s firm but patient and quiet way had Moses’ attention from the time Mark walked through the door (knowing Mark carried a treat pouch helped). Mark helped us adjust our responses and behavior to get the desired responses from Moses. Mark was always available to help our ‘family’ and help us adjust to each other. We respect Mark for his knowledge and willingness to find and answer for us if he did not know. Mark loves his work and it is evident in how he conducts his business and responds to his clients. We are grateful for all Mark’s help and glad to know he is there should any situation arise in the future.

He Took A Hard To Manage Dog & Turned Him Into a Well Mannered Family Member!

Mark is extremely knowledgeable about dogs and how to handle them with patience and care. His soft spoken voice begged Dexter’s undivided attention and he could get him to do anything with a simple command – verbally or with a hand gesture. He helped us take Dexter from a hard to manage dog to a well mannered and well behaved dog by teaching us to recognize the good behaviors instead of the bad. As Mark says, “he trains people not dogs”. Mark came to our home and worked with us to set the boundries for Dexter within the environment he would be living. He worked on the things that we felt needed to be done, reviewed what was tried, and then answered questions or helped with problems if we had any. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who is thinking about training their dog.

I Love The Positive Reinforcement Approach!

My 2 year old Miniature Schnauzer Lexi & I just finished our 6 week training with Mark at Tuxedos K9 Training Camp. I was so impressed by the way Mark teaches his students (both the dogs and their owners). Mark has a gentle approach towards training, which I really like. Mark is very patient and knowledgeable. I love the positive reinforcement approach that is taught, as it truly creates a strong bond for the owner and his/her dog. Mark works with each client, discussing their individual needs and wants. Mark was very attentive while listening to each client and offering suggestions or showing each of us how to handle unwanted behaviors with our pets. He was a HUGE help to me, with explaining what I needed to do to help Lexi (and me) achieve our goals. Lexi and I had so much fun attending Mark’s training classes. I will now take all that I learned from Mark and continue to reinforce these skills on a daily basis. I would highly recommend Tuxedo K9 Training Camp to all of my friends and family.

Mark Is Very Passionate With Dogs

Mark is very passionate with dogs. My dog Max was a rescue-he was found abandoned in an apartment for 3-4 days and because of that it made Max have aggressive issues. He bit my boyfriend 3 times and didn’t listen to us. We weren’t sure if we would be able to keep him. I asked around work to see what dog trainers were out there and my friend from work recommended her dog trainer-Mark. My bf and I decided to sign Max up for his class. I went to the informational meeting and just going to that really impressed me. I went home and told my boyfriend that our dog trainer is a dog whisperer. Mark asked everyone about their dogs-what kinda food we feed what kinda toys they have and from that he could tell us what they need to get off of and what we need to change that could cause their behavior. Max was the most disobedient dog in the very first class-jumping on the couch, barking, biting, and growling. There were times when I had to call or email Mark to find out what I could do because Max was chewing on his bed or max was doing this. Mark will take a call or email anytime of the day and be more than happy to help you with your dogs behavior if they’re getting out of hand. By the end of 6 weeks, max was sitting by non-speaking command, laying down, walking beside us on walks and no longer being aggressive. Mark does an amazing job turning an aggressive dog into a sweet well behaved dog. He’s great with any type of dog and can turn a shy dog into an outgoing dog as well. Mark is a dog whisperer and I highly recommend him to anyone.

He Trained Our Little Barking Machine

Mark, I just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you that what you did Wednesday night was nothing short of amazing, in fact it’s right up there with the parting of the Red Sea… We arrived with Molly and I thought for sure you were going to toss us out based on all the noise coming out of our little bark machine. You didn’t, and by the end of the night Molly and I were parading around the room, simply walking past the same dogs that she was so excited about earlier. I knew from the first time we met you that you were the guy!
