Testimonials from our customers

“We were on vacation, and we dropped my beagle off daily. He was excited when we arrived, and he absolutely loved to be there. Mark and his staff were very helpful and an absolute pleasure to work with. Everyone was very nice to us, making our holiday truly great. We will definitely be back in Sarasota and K9 Korral for our dog. Thank you!”

Pietro C., Venice

“My dog Tucker and I recently finished Basic 101 and we have been so successful. We have just registered for Basic 102. We just love the full staff and what they have to offer. Tucker does day care for 4 hours once a week just to play and I know he is safe and in good hands. I highly recommend K9 Korral!”

“Great place for our fur babies to stay for a day or overnight. Great staff that really cares for our fur babies.”
Zazzaro W., Sarasota
“A great dog trainer can make all the difference. Mark Shambour is a great trainer! He uses positive reinforcement training, and, it is clear that his knowledge is based on the science of animal learning and years of experience. He exudes what he teaches in classes: calm, confident, and consistent. Plus, he is kind and has a wonderful sense of humor.”
Lynn B., Sarasota
“The crew at K9 Korral really love dogs. My puppy has had an exceptional time there and is quickly becoming socialized. Puppy training has been very good as well, Mark knows his stuff and conveys it well. Very good teacher!”
Stephen S., Sarasota
“We were so desperate for some help… Mark came to us for a private lesson and now we spend our time loving our dog. He was a God send and my only regret is that I didn’t seek his help sooner… I can’t possibly say enough good things about him and how he changed our relationship with our dog. He is the one to hire when you need help with training.”
Mary R., Sarasota

“My two puppies went through training with Mark who is awesome! They not only learned new commands, they both are easier to walk which was my biggest challenge. Thank you Mark for the training and allowing me to learn how to walk and train the dogs easier and more enjoyable!!!”
