Gemini K9

Hello everyone, I am about to bring home my first Dobe on Friday(4months old today) and I have already been researching trainers. I live in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and was considering Gemini K9. I have searched the forum and saw some comments about them, but nothing recent or substantive. To start I am looking for obedience training basic to advanced. Can anyone provide any feedback on Gemini K9's methods, successful and unsuccefully stories, the trainers themselves, etc.

Can they give you referrals of people who have used them before. If no one here has dealt with them that would be an option. Regardless I would want to visit a couple classes adn observe for myself.

No personal experience but I have only heard good things from a few people. I agree with above, go and observe

I know a couple that are very good trainers who live in the Toronto area. Marvin Eng and his wife Penny Buckner-Eng (Penny Eng). They used to have or be with a company called K9-Solutions. Not sure if they are still with that company or not but a little searching and I think you can connect with them, as I know they still live there. Good luck.

Actually I meant Penny Buckner as probably the name to look up, not Penny Eng. I know Marvin is coming out to our work week next month.

I train with Gemini K9 and have for a while. I am in the Schutzhund program. I am just starting my second dog with Chris. Chris is very professional and is very fair to dogs and handlers which is more than I can say about many trainers. I am extremely satisfied and if you want to talk more u r welcome to pm me.

I also heard this evening that Penny is no longer providing professional training sessions.
