Ah! Where can I even start, we are new to the area and have 4 rescue pups! 1 of them, Izzy has always been a wonderful dog for our little ones and us however when we introduced her to our newest rescue she started acting out, would snatch food from the dinner table and would even pin the puppy down. And it only got worse. We couldn’t take her on walks, she would refuse to come to her name etc..We were recommended by a good friend to contact fine line family K-9 and I couldn’t be more grateful, they’ve not only helped our Izzy but they gave us tools to also continue with our other pups. We will absolutely be back with all our future rescues! Highly recommended
Steve sold me my 2-year old protection dog. He's the most amazing animal I've ever been around! He and I bonded within the first 24 hours of ownership, and now he follows me everywhere I go and responds extremely well to the commands Steve taught me. I couldn't be happier with my dog, and would immediately recommend to anyone looking for a supremely trained family protection dog to contact Fine Line Family before contacting anyone else.
I just wanted to share with every one the great experience we had with our trainer Shannon Potter. We are truly thankful for her Help with our dog Gunner. We now can walk him on leash ,take him for rides in the truck. He sits when told to, goes to place, and stays until released & lays on command. Shannon addressed all our concerns. Gunner looked forward to her arrival for each session. We practice with him every day to keep it fresh in his mind.Thanks again Shannon & Fine line Family K9.
We feel so fortunate to have found Steve and Ariana in our search for a family protection dog. First and foremost, with four children, we wanted a dog that could be a part of our family. Living in California, I have to say that I didn't think getting a dog from Florida would be the most geographically desirable but Steve not only made it work for us, he spent quite some time on the phone with me, educating me on the different types of dogs and trainings. He didn't try to sell me a dog but simply wanted to help me know what to look for. After speaking with several "protection dog" trainers/companies, I knew that Steve had what we wanted and needed. He listened to what was important to us and matched us with the perfect dog. Communication is so important and Steve has been extremely accessible; before, during and after our purchase. Not only did we buy a dog from Fine Line Family K-9, we also received a bonus with their superior customer service. I am confident that if I have any questions or concerns, I could pick up the phone at any time and they will be there. Steve's responsiveness is extraordinary and we couldn't be happier with our dog, Tasha, or their team. We would highly recommend Fine Line Family K-9, and when the time is right, we will definitely be a returning customer. Thank you for matching us with the perfect fit!
Our family is so lucky to have found Shannon, Ariana, and everyone at Fine Line Family K-9. They’re quite literally lifesavers! From the moment we met them and visited their facility, we were so impressed. We just brought home an incredible service dog, and they’ve been there every step of the way. We’re so impressed with the service dog they trained for us that we sent a new puppy to board and train. They are responsive, caring, reliable, and just amazing at what they do—everything you could ever want in a trainer. Shannon has the patience of a saint and she and everyone at Fine Line Family K-9 are now FURever family. 💙🐾
It is with great confidence, that I am writing a review for Fine Line. Our Trainer Shannon took on the task of not just training one of our puppies but both at the same time and they were a week apart in age. She came to our home several days a week and took on my Golden Doodles Finn and Annie. Every time, she knocked on the door they were so excited to see her and learn more from her, week after week. Training takes time, effort on all our parts, it is not just the Trainers job it is the what we continue to do with what she has taught us and the doggies. We saw weekly success with our Fur-babies during and after. By the time they graduated we were getting compliments weekly on Shannon, their behavior and how much they had learned. To this day, I just recently had a neighbor ask if they could have her Training information "the neighbor said Finn and Annie are so well behaved" and as their parents it just makes you smile and proudly pass on her information for the next family. Shannon we are always so grateful for your time, lessons and YOU are always like family to us. Come see us soon!
Our son, Andy was lucky enough to have won a service dog from Fine Line Family K-9. We do believe they couldn’t have picked a better match as he is a PERFECT match with Andy. Radar is being trained at home now for Andy’s specific disabilities and is making great progress. He has been trained for ptsd and balance and is making such a difference in our sons life with more independence and companionship. Andy is so excited and HAPPY to have him. His trainer, Shannon, is absolutely AMAZING, very kind and KNOWLEDGEABLE. We have been so amazed at how well behaved and trained Radar is out in pubic and since he is a service dog and goes everywhere with Andy that is of utmost importance. We could never repay Fine Line Family K-9 for what they have done for our son. Fine Line Family K-9 has become part of our family and we look forward to our ongoing relationship with all of them.
Worth every penny. I was extremely pleased with the quality of work that FLF did with my dog. Anytime I needed to contact them they always got back to me quickly and with friendliness. I will be sending my next pup to do obedience training with them asap!
Bought a dog from here 6 months ago and haven't been dissatisfied since. The dog was sold to me as described. Great with the family, listens VERY well, and has become one with us. We take the dog everywhere and not have to worry about a thing. I along with the family are very thankful for the service brought to us by fine line family👍👍
Me and my boyfriend bought a sweet, healthy, and loving puppy for a very reasonable price. They provided us with accurate pet records and answered every question and concern we had. We recommend this breeder to anyone who is ready to bring a loving dog into their home.
I purchased a family protection dog from here! I was in the market and they really made me knowledgeable and matched me with a dog that fit my lifestyle. I am amazed with my new dog! She is everything I’ve ever wanted and some. They made the tradition process so simple. I’m so happy and I recommend their family business to anyone.
I am SO pleased I was referred to the fine line family to train my dog!! I could not have asked for better results with my pup!! The entire staff was SO friendly and professional! I will be recommending them to everyone for training and my fur baby will have a family to board him for any future vacations 🙂 Juice man says thank you for taking care of him and I thank you all for giving me such a well behaved dog!!
I sent my dog here because she was jumping and had zero manners. When they were done training her she was so well mannered and had great obedience. I am so impressed and not sure how they did it but i would recommend them to anyone looking.
I have a german shepherd and when I brought him to Fine Line Training he was, well let's just say he had issues. I thought my baby just might have been a lost cause. But when I went back to Fine Line and saw my baby, it was almost like a miracle. He was so much better. I finally found the best friend I've always wanted. Thank you Fine Line.
I've had Marko with me for ten days now and he's the best dog I've ever been with...well trained with excellent recall, attentive and eager to please. He's learned some new tasks with my horses and has found his bark, which he uses judiciously. I'm eager to see his bite power, but at the same time cautious as he is so friendly it's hard to believe that's him attacking in the videos. Loves kids, listens for their activity, but watches when asked. I'm sure that he understands all of my words and I'm learning his expressions. This dog is so well trained, and literally still a puppy, only proves what an excellent training program Steve and family provide. Totally worth the expense, and that's hard for me to admit. I couldn't recommend more Fine Line Family K-9 for anything canine related.
First and most important, this is hands-down the absolute best place to bring your dog. They are family owned and operated so that right there tells you they’re about the dog learning and being part of the family. When I brought Diesel I was very concerned that he would not be able to learn obedience (he was wild and didn’t listen)even though he was 4 months old, they assured me that it can all be corrected.. and I will tell you it has only been a 2 days since I picked him up and WOW and from the first 5 minutes of being there and them showing me how to command my dog he is definitely 100% improved. If you or someone you know needs any type of training for ur dog don’t waste your time on going anywhere else. You will not be disappointed with the results. This is and will always be the top for dog training. To the family at Fine Line K-9, Diesel and I thank you so much
I took my 2 year old dog Cider to Fine Line Family K-9 and I could not be happier with the results! I have way more control over my dog than I have ever had before. She is still her same goofy self, but obedient. I was starting to feel so stressed out and hopeless when it came to training my dog and having her listen to me and Fine Line Family K-9 solved all of those problems. They also make sure your fur baby is having a great time while they are away! Cider was always jumping in the pool and playing with the other dogs! I highly recommend Fine Line Family K-9!
Would recommend to anyone, amazing people, amazing place. My dog was great, but she needed a little extra training in a few areas being a Pitbull I don’t want her jumping on people and knocking them over. Perfect place to take your pet for behavior training..thanks everyone for taking care of my girl🐾🐶
My experience with them is great, they are so attentive, and answer all my questions even after I bought the puppy! I love them such a family business! I am going to bring both our dogs back to get trained .
If I could give a higher review than 5 stars I would! I sent my high spirited silver lab puppy "Blue" there at 3 1/2 months for Steve to train to leash walk, not bite, crate train, stay in place and be well behaved and socialized so I could take him out and also to work with me. It was a tall order. I trusted Steve, respected the space & time he needed to train Blue and when I picked him up Blue had been transformed by Steve into my dream companion dog! I can't say enough about how well Blue was treated there, making friends with the other dogs in training, and how giving him over to Fine Line Family K-9 has turned Blue into a wonderful dog and my new best friend. I was once worried that Blue was just too much for me and now he's my shadow and so awesome to be with. Steve truly does perform dog miracles! Thank you Steve! And thank you Ariana for so nicely posting Instagram photos so I could see how Blue was doing. And I appreciate the great training you gave ME when I picked up Blue! Fine Line Family K-9 is the best!!
We took our family dog Zaylah to Fine Line Family K-9 for their board and train obedience program. Before we brought her there she was always reacting to other dogs, pulling on the leash, and wouldn't come when called. Now she is highly improved! She walks perfectly on and off leash, comes when called and is more confident when she see's other dogs. THANK YOU FINE LINE FAMILY K-9!!!
Just bought our second pup from fine line family k9 and another amazing dog, just like Sarra has been! It’s been over a year since our Sarra has seen Steve, but he did his off leash heel, sit, stand, straddle and stay, all with the distraction of a brand new dog and some strangers in his home. Hands down best trainer ever, and wouldn’t think of buying a dog from anyone else, ever again!
Picked up my 9 month old chocolate lab after a month of boot camp. Wow! She has changed so much in such a good way! Well mannered and listens 100 times better than before ! I cannot believe it. What a miracle worker!!!
We recently purchased an adult protection dog from them. A Belgian Malinois. I am a green handler of a dog of this caliber. Steve drove what had to be 12 hours one way to hand deliver the dog and spent half a day working with me and educating me on properly handling the dog. Steve has been great at answering my questions after the sale.
Amazing work! Forever grateful to Fine Line for helping me with my problem child. Arya is like a new dog--complete transformation. I knew she had the potential and Steve was able to bring it out of her. I have 3 kids and I trust her with their lives. Thank you Fine Line Family K-9!
