What people are saying…

“I highly recommend Aurora to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and empathetic trainer who has a love for human’s best friend – whether you’re looking to train your furry family member or your future lifeline – Aurora is the one to call. She is truly a fairy dog mother.”

“If you’re afraid of building a positive relationship with your pup and unwilling or unable to put in the work to reinforce training at home, then Rising Star K9s may not be the best fit. For us, the teaching philosophy, dedicated trainers, training program and curriculum, love they have for our pup, reasonable cost and expertise are worth it.”

“Aurora is a talented trainer, who takes the time to really get to know both the individual and their dog, and what they need to succeed in their ventures. She’s the most reasonably priced trainer I’ve found, while still delivering quality training. She’s done amazing by my dog, and everyone else I’ve met that’s worked with her!”
