What We're About

Welcome to Evolve K9! We are dedicated to empowering dogs to make good choices for themselves. Through our training programs, we instill decision-making skills that promote independence, confidence, and a stronger connection between dogs and their owners. Recognizing the importance of a cooperative partnership, our training methods provide owners with the control needed to guide and shape their dog's behavior.

This empowerment leads to clear communication, well-defined boundaries, and a solid foundation for a harmonious relationship. We specialize in providing clients the skills and knowledge needed to live a harmonious life with their dogs. We simplify the training journey through a holistic approach that includes relationship, freedom, confidence, basic and advanced obedience, as well as targeted behavioral modification.

Marcus is INCREDIBLE!! He is an absolute natural & such an incredible trainer. Not only has he helped my very anxious Golden become more confident, but he has also trained both my sister's two dogs and my moms because he's THAT good! You will not regret working with Marcus. He has a passion that is unmatched & is incredible at not only training/helping your dog(s) but also helping you (the owner) build a positive connection & learn how to effectively communicate with your dog!

I cannot recommend Evolve K9 enough! Our pup had some behavioral issues that we were struggling to address, I'd tried everything on the internet but it didn't get us very far. But with the expertise of Marcus, balance has been restored to our lives and our dog has never been happier. Marcus took the time to understand our dogs unique personality and our training goals to curate the perfect training methods. What I appreciate most is that our dog is not only more obedient, but he is 200% more calm and through the help of Evolve K9 we've built a trusting relationship. We're incredibly grateful for the positive impact Marcus had on our dog's life, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in need of top-notch training services.

Marcus at EvolveK9 has been working with my border collie Lilly for years. He took her from scared, reactive, and insecure to confident, trusting, and more social. Her quality of life has gone up due to the work Marcus put in with her. I have him to thank for my life long dog best friend. I highly recommend if you want someone professional, knowledgeable and transparent with his approach. You’re dog will be glad you choose Evolve!!

- Benjamin W.

My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Marcus for all of your dog training needs! Marcus is a great teacher, communicator, professional, and truly cares about your pup. You will not go wrong with Evolve K9!
