Chris is truly a god send. Our 10 month old poodle/husky mix was aggressive with other dogs when there were any bones/toys around and is extremely headstrong. He could not be off of a leash because he would just run off to where ever he pleased. When we reached out to Chris he responded immediately to schedule an evaluation. When he came for the evaluation he was very straightforward and explained how his training worked and his background and answered all of our questions. In that initial evaluation he already was showing us things we were doing incorrectly and how to improve them. When he left the evaluation we knew we had found the right guy. He is honest and forthcoming and truly impressive with his knowledge. He has trained police dogs and even helps aggressive dogs in shelters who were basically told had no hope due to their aggression and certain behaviors, but Chris was able to help them. It was obvious from the first time we met him that he truly cares about helping dogs.
We chose to have Chris come to our home for training and he taught and coached us with our dog and showed us in detail all of the corrections and directions to give our dog. He took his time and showed us how we would build on each command and how to practice each step in between sessions. I took a video after 2 sessions and sent it to my family(who have had and have multiple dogs) after a couple of sessions with Chris and every response was simply “unbelievable”, because Chris is truly unbelievable. Our dog does not have to be on a leash when we take him on walks now, which is so amazing for us and him. Our dog has so much more freedom and enjoyment while also being safe because he listens when we tell him to come to us or sit/lay down in different situations. Now when he is around other dogs we feel safe knowing knowing we have a way to control his aggression.
I was walking him the other day and another dog walked by, I told our pup to lay down, while the other dog was pulling and going crazy, and I praised our pup and told him good boy and the owner of the other dog said “wow he is so good, how did you teach him that?” and I told them about Chris and passed on his information. I honestly cannot praise Chris enough and after our pup’s graduation we were sad to see Chris go.
The biggest difference with Chris is that your dog is trained to listen to and respond your voice even in the most intense/extreme situations instead of only responding when you have a treat in your hand. We are so thankful for Chris and cannot recommend him enough

Chris and his assistant London were terrific to work with. We had a dog that pulled while walking on the leash, chewed on the rug and pillows, and never came when called. After two weeks with Chris we are now confident walking her off leash, even in a busy area, my decorative pillows can live on the couch again, and she comes running every time we say come here. I’d highly recommend Chris Park K9!

There are not enough words to describe how truly amazing Chris is and how much we enjoyed working with him, as did our dog Nyla! We had gotten Nyla, 4 month old Husky/Pitbull mix, early in the year and she was FULL of energy as Huskies are. We started a basic dog training course, which did not seem to be helping much, as she did not listen to commands, she could not be off leash, as she would take off, she pulled, she would be over hyper, nip, and bite. We then discovered that we were going to be expecting our first child and had no control over this new member of our family. I began to panic thinking there was no way we could have both. I found Chris, and the same day he called me right back when I told him about our situation and we talked through EVERYTHING. He guaranteed me that everything would be okay, and we could add both new members to our family. We sent Nyla for 2 weeks with Chris. The moment we met him in person we knew she was going to be well taken care of & loved, but disciplined at the same time. I was afraid of leaving my dog with a stranger, but we left with no reservations. I am so thankful to say when we got her back she was way beyond what we expected, and had not lost 1 spunk of her personality. She was still the same dog, but respected her boundaries and commands now. Chris left us with all of the tools we needed to succeed, and Nyla has been doing amazing ever since! She can be completely off leash, her bad habits are broken, she even learned how to walk with a stroller once the baby gets here! Chris is truly a wonderful person and INCREDIBLE at what he does. He is so easy to work with and has become a part of our family. I would highly recommend him to anyone, and will be sending any and all of our future fur babies to him. He is not just a dog trainer, but someone who will help you for life. We have called and texted multiple times when we needed assistance on corrections and certain behaviors, and he has always been there to take our call. If you are looking for a dog trainer, stop looking and send them to Chris! You will not be disappointed. He treats all of his dogs like family and truly wants your family to be happy and succeed as well. Thank you Chris!! - Sandra, Jack, & Nyla :)

I just want to say if you are looking for a dog trainer who will get the job done look no further. I have a 6 month old german shepherd who had behavioral issues and even as a puppy it was difficult . he would bite continually, he barked from morning till night, hated to go to the vets, hated going in the car. After several trainers and wasted money i was given the name Chris Park, i called him and i really needed some serious help he told me to bring the dog to his home on Monday and the dog would go through a 2 week training period. I agreed to let Chris take the dog. After I picked my dog up first I thought I got the wrong dog !!! Well all I can say is it was a miracle to how well behaved my puppy was and such a joy to have him. Waste no time looking and searching for a trainer and only to find out how much time and money you really did waste!!! call the Master of Dog Training Chris Park.

Chris Park and his assistant London literally saved our lives. We adopted a rescue pitbull about two months ago. He is about 6 years old. His energy was through the roof and I was failing at trying to train him to stop jumping on me, pulling on the leash etc. My kids were nervous around him too.
After searching the internet and calling some other trainers I met with Chris. He was very responsive and answered all of my questions. I felt nervous boarding my dog with a stranger but when I met Chris I was comfortable. You can tell he really likes dogs and will train them correctly.
He sent me multiple video updates of Blue during training and playing with other dogs. After training was over London came to ensure we understood all of the commands that Blue learned. He worked with each member of the family before leaving. Chris did a followup a week later.
Blue is more wellbehaved than some children I know now!!! I get compliments everytime I walk him.
Do yourself a favor and train your dog with Chris Park.. it will change your life for good!!!
THANK YOU CHRIS & LONDON

Searching for a dog trainer? No need to look anywhere else!! Chris Park transformed my one year old German Shepherd named Toby from being an uncontrollable, "aggressive", reactive dog to an amazing, calm, friendly, lovable, well trained dog. Chris was professional, funny and caring to both our dog and my family from the start. He truly cares about dogs. He is a miracle worker! Before Chris, we were at the point where we could no longer walk Toby as he would pull on the leash along with barking uncontrollably at other dogs and people as they passed by. Neighbors would literally cross the street when they would see us coming around the corner with him. With Toby having bitten and snapped aggressively to several family friends, we lived in constant fear of what he was going to do next as I have two young grandsons and people in/out of my house all the time. We were basically at the point where we thought we were going to have to put a muzzle on him. This is not what we wanted for him. Family and friends were also on edge about being at our house because we had very little control over his actions. To emphasize just how great Chris is, I wanted to share that Toby had already gone through training from three other highly recommended trainers that could not do what Chris did. When searching desperately for someone to train Toby, I came across Chris and another trainer. The other trainer told us to put Toby down or send him back to the breeder. He also shared that he would never associate a dog like that to his name or business. We called Chris and three hours later my family and I piled into our car to drop Toby off at Chris’s house. Within five minutes of meeting Chris he assured me that Toby was going to be fine. He told us that Toby was not aggressive he just doesn`t know what he is suppose to do. With Chris, you are not just getting a trainer but rather a family man that is going to take your dog everywhere with him in the two weeks he is gone, you are signing your dog up for socialization with other dogs, you get to have a safe space for your dog when boarding is needed, and best of all you get back your dog and know he was loved the entire time you weren’t there with him. Toby is now walking without a leash, neighbors are not running from us and my grandsons are able to run crazy throughout the house and Toby is not even phased. A quote from a close friend that was petrified of Toby, "What did you do he is a completely different dog, are you sure this is Toby”. Chris changed our unpredictable and “scary” dog into a family dog that just wants to give kisses and snuggles. He sent me pictures and videos often to share Toby`s progress and when we picked Toby up he spent several hours training us on how to care for Toby and his new commands. He comes for a home visit 1-2 weeks later for a follow up. We have a second follow up at his home in two weeks. Chris has even offered to come back to our house when we have our vet appointment to be sure it goes smoothly. He told me "I am your trainer for life". It was just the best experience. He is worth every Penny. Don`t waste your time or money with any other trainer. Chris truly cares about the dogs he trains. I didn`t think Toby was going to want to leave him. This is how excited Toby was to see Chris when he came to our house for the follow up visit. We can never thank Chris enough for what he did for us and Toby. I am truly amazed and get emotional when I watch Toby interact with other dogs, people and family and especially my grandchildren. We owe all of this to Chris.

My dog GG is a rescue pitbull. She knew no commands and was very "rough around the edges." While she was a sweet girl you could tell she was not treated well in her previous life. Chris was very responsive and was able to work with her even with all of these issues. When she came home from the training she was much better behaved and had learned many important commands. Chris continued to work with me after she came home and I always have his cell phone number if something comes up. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a professional effective dog trainer.
