I started classes at K9 Central after rescuing my little terrier who was super nervous and shy of bigger dogs and most people. Their friendly staff and caring demeanour really helped her come out of her shell, become more confident and much happier. I use several of the services offered there including training classes, grooming and pool membership. I have never had an issue with any service and my dogs now actually get excited when we pull in the driveway there!
I have had my little dog groomed at several different places and upon getting her back she has always had the clipper marks left in her fur; She has been groomed at K9 Central three times so far and never have I seen that happen, so far nothing but a neat clean happy dog upon pick up.
I would definitely recommend K9 Central for all things dog!
We tried K9 Central on the advice of a friend. We were amazed at the amount of facilities available to people who love to do fun things with their dogs. We began with a crazy puppy who was high energy and frustrating in a class so we inquired about private classes. Private lessons were the best way to go for us and we got individual attention without a huge price tag. As we got more comfortable with our training we were able to introduce ourselves to training with others and other dogs gradually. We have now graduated to agility in a class setting and dock diving. It's a family outing and lots of fun for both humans and canines! We have trusted K9 to look after our babies in doggy daycare and they howlto go there when we drive into the driveway. Very polite staff.
I wanted to thank Morgan and her staff for grooming my Shih Tzu, Skye. I love the new hair cut, and I believe Skye does too. I have been going to classes, shows, and renting the agility field at K 9 Central for years now. The staff has always been caring and knowledgeable. As soon as I turn onto Holt Rd the noise level goes up in the car as the three dogs all know where they are going and cannot wait to get there. I have one dog that is frightened of so many things, but as soon as he gets to K9 Central you could not see a more confident, happier dog. I highly recommend K9 Central.

Positives: friendly staff, very accommadating. dog looked great after grooming
Negative: 60.00 for a shampoo, nail trim and brush, labrador=a little expensive
dog was extremely thirsty when leaving and urinated for a good minute. I don't think she was given water or taken outside while there for her grooming (8:30-2:30)
All dogs visiting our facility are taken for a midday pee break after their bath. Not only is this a nice time for the dog to relax and enjoy a break, but it is great for the groomer too as they do not have to worry about little 'accidents' on the grooming table or in the grooming room. As such, the midday pee break is mandatory. As well, if the owner cannot pick-up their dog immediately after being finished, the dog is taken for another pee break and then every hour or so while waiting. I'd also like to suggest that you should not give your dog water for the first ½ hour upon arriving home. When a dog goes home, your best friend is excited and excitement leads to thirst. Give your dog only a small amount of water or ice cubes. If your dog drinks a large amount of water, this may lead to stomach upset. It's better to let them relax a little first and then give them water and a bite to eat.
Price quoted in the review includes HST.
Just graduated @ SuperDogCentral at the Basic Manners class. Great time and interaction for both "Ace" and myself. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Facility has kennel, daycare and wide variety of classes. Maybe Dock Diving next??
