About Us

At Splendid K9, we are compelled by effective behaviour conditioning methods and driven by results. We hold integrity over the passion and commitment given to each and every client.

Conducting our service in a professional, honest and compassionate manner is most important to us.

In 2017, when we began our journey. We first aimed at being the most affordable option for dog training in Cape Town. To be able to assist as many dogs and families as we could. Through time, as we got busier and busier, and our demand rose, we were forced to raise our rates as well as our standards. We set out on becoming the best dog behaviour service in Cape Town.

 

In 2019, we achieved a milestone on our mission. We became the highest rated dog behaviour servicing business in Cape Town. It only created more devotion to drive the understanding and teachings of dog behaviour forward. Helping hundreds upon hundreds of clients achieve the very best potential for their fur friends and livelihood. 

We don't only teach you how to understand behaviour, but to use our broadened methodology and approach of dog behaviour modification to positively change your dog's behaviour and create a new understanding of an equanimous lifestyle.

Reviews

''I am so glad that I found Storm, and I highly recommend him. He gave us some excellent tips that has already made a big difference in one day of practise. We feel so confident and at ease after his visit.
Thank you so much Splendid K9!''

Stephanie Van Gelderen

''I was gobsmacked at the change in Puppy. She no longer charges up to other dogs aggressively barking. Her fear has been quelled. Thank you SO much Storm!''

Elloise Du Toit

''Storm was wonderful with Max! He clearly knew what he was doing, and had such a great understanding of dog behavior. We saw a change in Max immediately during the session, and now feel confident going forward. We have been following Storm's advice and see progress already. Storm was very reasonably priced, especially because he is honest and told us that we don't need more sessions, rather we just need repetition in what he taught us. I highly recommend Splendid K9!''

Madeline Johnson

''I asked Storm to help me with my very reactive dog. Storm was very calm and patient with my dog Rylie and by the end of the hour my dog was calm and relaxed. I am very grateful for your help. Thank you Storm.''
