Leela and I would like to give a special shout out in recognition of Kathleen Shumway Lawton at K10 Dog Training in Mexico, NY.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Kathleen for the past couple of weeks, her expertise in coaching and fine tuning Leela’s skills prior to passing the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test last evening has been top-notch. Not only is Kathleen knowledgeable and professional, she is very patient & kind with dogs and their owners alike. It truly was a privilege to work with Kathleen and I can’t thank her enough for working me and Leela through all the necessary CGC practical skills prior to testing. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone seeking obedience or other training needs with their puppies or dogs.

When we became the proud parents of a Shih Tzu we wanted to do everything that was right for our little girl. A friend suggested K-10 Training and it only took 5 minutes for us to know this was exactly what we wanted and needed. Princess Nala Bella started school at 6 months….within a few weeks she was ‘teaching’ us.

Kathleen Shumway is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and dedicated to her students and their owners. We highly recommend her……as does the Princess.

Kathleen Shumway is one of the kindest, most caring dog trainers I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with.  She has always been a spokesperson for all animals in need.  I witnessed a puppy that had enough energy for 4 dogs, and was unable to walk on a leash etc. This dog today is one one the best behaved dogs .

Her prices are more than fair. She has a beautiful facility.  She will help you make your dogs a perfect part of any family.  I for one recommend her whenever anyone asks for a trainer.  And all people who go to her training center call me to say how pleased they are.  You need some behavior help with your dogs, Give her a call.
