"Excellent service. From the first call to handover it’s obvious the teams main priority is the dogs welfare. Rob took the time to get to know us and was then able to match us with wonderful Solo. We were encouraged to visit any time and spend time getting to know Solo. With his tailored training program, and the support of Rob and his team, Solo settled very well following his home delivery and handover. Rob’s shown a keen interest in his progress and we’re amazed at the following Solo has on Total K9’s Facebook page!!! We recommended Rob to friends who have used his training services successfully. Thank you Total K9."
"After an incident at home we decided on a protection dog for our family and after looking at many companies we settled on Total K9. I felt the owner Rob was very professional in his approach. He made the effort to understand our family and needs and chose Bear a black German shepherd for us. He is an amazing dog. Protective when needed but 100% a loving family dog which is great with the children. Would not hesitate to recommend this company and Rob. You won’t be disappointed."
"2 years ago we got Bear from Total K9, he is an excellent dog, he has been beyond all of our expectations so much so that we took delivery of Xena as a companion for him approximately 2 weeks ago, and guess what she has settled in so well. Rob and Nathan have, with the Total K9 team provided us as a family with 2 brilliant well trained and socialised family protection dogs. I have no problem giving personal recommendation to anyone wishing to deal with this company. 5 stars in my opinion is not high enough, well done guys... thank you."
"I was supplied with Wolf from Rob 2 years ago now and can honestly say best 2 years of my life, after loosing my husband an just being in a secluded home with my 4 young children I decided to contact rob, he was so professional listened to what I wanted an needed and picked out the perfect dog for us, after a full hand over wolf came straight into family like he was meant for us, he is so protective [...] "
"We came all the way from Anglesey to view Ronnie, and we weren't disappointed. He is all that Rob said he was and more. Rob and his team do a fantastic job, are very friendly and approachable."
"We have had Rossi now for approx 3 years from Rob he is the most wonderful loyal dog very level headed and will guard with his life. He patrols the grounds and is extremely responsive and will attack if needed. Rob sold us an excellent dog, he went through all the steps thoroughly with his trainer and was on stand by for any advice if needed. Thoroughly recommend Robs Personal Protection Dogs 100%"
