You get a new puppy. You want the best for them and to start off on the right foot. You begin to scour threw the internet on dog training. Variations to online, in person or classes. I started with an online course. It was going well. Until it wasn’t. I realized at that moment I needed an in person to help. Scouring the internet again. I looked at several trainers, read all the reviews. I decided to go with On The Ball K9. It was the BEST decision I made for my Rylie. At first, I did private lessons. Rylie was doing great was getting her foundation and obedience down. But later on, I noticed she was missing confidence. She was beginning to show signs of anxiety. These were inadvertently caused by me. I was then considering doing a board and train with Summer. I reached out to her, told her what I was noticing. We went over any concerns or issues I had. I wish I would have sent her to board and train program sooner. Rylie’s issues were more prominent than what I had realized. When Rylie came home, she is confident, WAY less anxious. She is now thriving and living her best dog life. I cannot thank Summer enough for her continued support. Summer has an invaluable wealth of knowledge. Me and Rylie are beyond grateful she is in our lives.

We got our dog about a year ago and while he was eager to learn and listened well he had some serious reactivity issues and some resource guarding. His reactivity seemed to make it impossible to enjoy time outside the home with him and the resource guarding caused issues in the home. Summer came in and not only taught our dog how to listen to us even when the urge to go full blown reactive hit but she also taught us how to communicate effectively with him and set expectations with him that led to success. We’ve been able to enjoy our dog in way that we previously couldn’t. Not only am
I not afraid to go out with him but we are regularly going for several mile walks without any outbursts. She gave us peace inside our home along with the tools and knowledge to continue making progress and enjoy our dog. Summer’s training has been invaluable and we can’t recommend her enough.

After reading so many positive reviews, we finally decided to contact Summer for her board and train program…. Best decision EVER.

We were struggling to effectively train our 10 month golden retriever pup (Pepper) and got caught up in a vicious cycle. We knew she needed exercise but we couldn’t walk her because she was all over the place… and she had some bad resource guarding tendencies that really worried us with our little human. We made the mistake of thinking she would follow the lead of our older, trained dogs… but not so much. And of course, she wasn’t outgrowing these habits.

We were at the end of our rope when we connected with Summer. It was clear when Pepper started that Summer knows how to communicate with dogs! From the pics and videos Summer shared, it was clear that Pepper was excited to learn and embrace her training.

Pepper has been home for a week now and it’s been wonderful. She seems more confident and loves the structure. We are so grateful to Summer’s program - it has been wonderful for our family!

Jake was fearful and reactive from the beginning. We had other dogs and had had some professional training, so we thought we could handle it. It just escalated to the point that he was redirecting and biting me when on leash whenever we encountered anyone. We contacted several trainers and no one would help us because of the biting. But Summer of On The Ball K9 training agreed to take us on. Summer’s expertise was evident right from the start. She worked a miracle with Jake. After we did her in home training Jake never bit me again. He was always going to be reactive, but Summer helped us learn to work with it. She also got us into the socialization classes which we continued to attend for the rest of his life. It made a big difference. He became a pleasure to walk and we had many great adventures together. Thanks to Summer this was all possible. I can’t thank her enough and strongly recommend her training services.

If you are looking for both the best Dog and Owner professional training experience, then On The Ball K9 is your go-to place. With our previous two dog ownerships, we never felt the need to hire a trainer until we got Beau. He was simply too much to handle...crazy on walks...not exactly behaving near other get the point! After our 5 week Private Training Sessions...what a transformation. With Summer's guidance, patience and leash recommendations we have a completely new dog. 5 Stars isn't enough for us...just an exceptional experience all the way around!

When asking for recommendations for dog trainers, Summer Milroy at On The Ball K9 was by far the majority of responses. Our “rescued” German shepherd turned out to be very leash aggressive towards other dogs; and although we’ve had many dogs over the years our GS was more than we could deal with. We started with Summer’s socialization classes and this helped a lot but she needed more. Our GS first went to another trainer (had the earliest opening) and while she learned a lot, it didn’t help the leash reactivity. Sumner Milroy to the rescue! In hindsight we should have waited for her first open spot for board and train! Don’t be us, go with her first!
Our GS just came home from her OnTheBallK9 3 week board and train program. Summer was great and took her time explaining how she’d worked with our girl, what We needed to know to continue her training and what was necessary to strengthen our relationship with her. She also took us on an outing to show she could be taken around other dogs without it escalating into what we’d been experiencing. We just needed some training as well.
Thank you, Summer Milroy, we know with the help you’ve given us, your continued support and the follow thru with our “home” work we have the girl we wanted.

We were desperate for help with our dog Cora! After careful research and many recommendations, we decided to seek Summer’s help. We could not be more grateful for Summer! She has been a tremendous source of knowledge and inspiration. One of the advantages of her at-home training program is she teaches techniques and activities to practice with our dog throughout the training periods and on our own time, resulting in marked increase in confidence both for us as trainers and for Cora. We look forward to continuing to practice and hone the skills she imparted and couldn’t be happier about the ongoing improvement we see in our dog!

Summer is extremely talented at what she does and she goes above and beyond for dogs and their humans! She knew we were anxious about leaving our German Shepherd with her for 3 weeks, and she did an awesome job maintaining communication with us during that time, letting us know how our pup was doing and what she was working on. Our dog came home with a really strong foundation of commands and responses. Summer is also is very clear about expectations to maintain your dog’s good behavior, and encouraged us to always reach out to her with any questions or concerns.

We had a sweet but overly rambunctious golden doodle that we sent to Summer’s board and train program. I have to say, from day one after she came home it’s like a different dog in all the best ways. She is still our sweet and loving girl but so much calmer and well behaved. Instead of pulling us on walks and chasing animals, she just strolls along right next to us. She doesn’t jump up on everyone she meets anymore, she listens to our commands wonderfully and honestly just seems to be a calmer and happier dog. I can’t recommend the program enough!!

I reached out to Summer for some help training my ill behaved 3 year old pitbull. I wanted to gain some control and bring more peace to my household. We did the private at home lessons and with Summer's guidance she has helped me transform Ellie into a new dog. I can now enjoy having company over without her being overwhelming to guests. I can really enjoy having a dog now. Thanks so much Summer! You truly are the best!
