Darla Wardrip
"We give our dogs treats, toys and affection, but for a long, happy life together, training is the best gift of all. I believe dogs need motivated, structured, mental & physical exercise on a daily basis to stimulate their mind and body in order to be balanced. We, as caregivers, need to realize it is a life-time commitment to care for and train our canine companion."

"Darla @Connecting with K9s has trained a few of my dogs over the years. Some for general obedience and others for behavioral retraining. She not only teaches the dogs, but teaches the their humans too. Her goal is to set up the dog and the owners for success. Along with training, she also has a few rescue dogs that are highly skilled and trained, and she will work with you training wise over the years if you adopt from her. She is worth every penny."

Nicole Martinez

"Excellent work from Darla! She helped with my dogs reactivity so much! Gave us the skills to continue working with them and to be able to have a more outdoorsy life where we are able to include our dogs without stressing."

Lisa Clark

"Darla impressed me even before we dropped off Evi. Not once did she make me feel like my pup care was inadequate or inferior. She understood right away that we wanted Evi to have the right tools to succeed in being a happy, brave, hardworking pup.
Darla impressed me at drop off when we spoke but her and Evi did not until we handed over the leash and walked away."
