What Our Clients Are Saying

When Chance, an abused and very aggressive Cocker Spaniel came to the shelter I ran I knew I had to do two things. The first was adopt him and the second was to call Mark, our dog trainer that Sun Coast Humane Society recommended for behavior modification.Chance had severe separation anxiety, would bark nonstop when alone, and would attack our pool man on site. Marks quiet, gentle approach yielded great results within two weeks and the in-home follow up training really helped me guide and understand him.. I highly recommend Mark Jacobs and On Command K9 Academy to anyone with dog behavior issues.

Mark is in the process of training our 15-month old Golden Doodle and the results are great! He explains what he’s doing, and why, and I swear gets inside Piper’s head. Very knowledgeable, personable, and customer-focused. I recommend Mark hightly.

Mark has trained all of my dogs and countless others I have recommended to On Command K9 Academy. He has worked with my dogs on specific issues, obedience, and protection. Whatever your dog’s needs, Mark can teach it or correct it. He is amazing both as a trainer of dogs and owners. I know you will be totally satisfied with On Command K9 Academy!
