Sarah & Maddie

Maddie - Jack Russel Terrier“Matthias has been wonderful. He has helped me with everything form basic obedience to teaching myself and two fighting terriers to live together happily.

I don’t know what I would have done without him. The most fun has been agility. Maddie just loves it and we have so much fun competing together! I can’t wait to see what we do with my new pups. Thank you, so much! Matthias, you are the best!”

Kevin & Blu

Kevin & Blu“When I first called to schedule training with Zehfuss, there was a short wait. At that point, I could’ve taken my dog to another trainer; however, I heard so much about his training that I had to see what all the talk was about.

My dog, Blu, started training when he was 3-months-old. So far, we have completed Basic Obedience and Off-Leash Obedience. So far, I am more than impressed with Blu’s training. And, I am proud to say that it was worth the wait. In fact, the results were impressive that we decided to take Blu’s training to the next level. We are now enrolled in Personal Protection.

I highly recommend Zehfuss training because it is sure to produce a balanced, well-trained dog. Zehfuss continually proves his passion for training dogs. His knowledge and his guidance have been a tremendous opportunity for us. Zehfuss is truly the Dog Whisperer of Oklahoma.

Joanne & Mimi

Joanne & Mimi“When I first adopted Mimi she was an abused dog with many problems. My personal disabilities were hindering my attempt to train her. Matthias helped us develop training methods that worked for both of us. Today, Mimi is my loving and gentle “Assist” dog. Thanks, Matthias.”

Paula & Gary

Paula & Gary's dogs“Can you see the happy smiles on our dogs? It’s because we enrolled in classes at Zehfuss K-9 Training Center.

Our dogs feel more confident. It is great to have them walk beside me instead of drag me. This has made us happier dog owners.”

George, Chris & Opie

Opie watches TV“Opie loves to watch TV. She is an Aussie and Border Collie mix. Watching the bright, flashing lights goes along with her breed.

Before training, Opie was not housebroken. She would not walk on a leash; nor would she sit or stay. Now, she does all of those commands. We are now working on “come.”

Carol, David & Pia

Pia & friend“We love our Pia! We cannot believe how quickly she has grown, nor how well she has melded herself into our “pack.”

You know we have a large, older shepherd, who she treats with great respect, and abounding love (sometimes too abounding for him)! Our heeler was not at all sure about her when she first arrived (so small, he thought!) but large in personality, as he found out abruptly, and her size changed so quickly that they have quickly become running and swimming buddies.

When we “rescued” a three year old golden retriever, Pia appointed herself “welcome wagon,”,and was bound and determined to teach this poor pup how to play with toys, other dogs (i.e. PIA), how to run like the wind across the fields, and other things I probably should not mention, like how to pretend not to hear the adults calling you, etc. They became fast friends, though this pup had been in an environment where she had been bitten, and beaten by the other dogs in her area, and she was extremely shy, and fearful. But she found out she couldn’t be shy with Pia around!

She is an absolute joy. It is impossible not to smile just watching her at play and enjoying life. She is absolutely at ease in almost every situation, and they are always happy to see her at the vet, and groomers, because she is so pleasant to be around, and such a sweet, gentle shepherd. She is loved, Matthias, and a very important part of our family – thank you! And thank you for working us into your schedule, because you know how she needs and loves her obedience and agility!

Thanks again! P. S. We were watching her fun tonight and remarked on how gorgeous she is!”

Chris, Jaycie & Emmitt

Emmitt“After reading the horror stories of damage done by Alaskan Malamutes who were bored, we quickly decided that our new puppy, Emmitt, needed to be well trained. We asked around and everyone said Matthias Zehfuss in Lawton was the best. We made the hour-long drive each Saturday anxious to see what we would learn—Matthias trained us as well as Emmitt. As predicted by Matthias, Emmitt grew into a 100 pound lovable dog who could easily have run all over us if he wanted–but he knows better thanks to Matthias!”

Christina & Abby

Christina & Abby“Abby has changed so much since we started coming to Zehfuss K-9 Training Center.

We took other classes before coming to Matthias, but all Abby learned was, “sit.” She loves coming to school. She loves to learn and now she is fulfilling her potential.”
