TESTIMONIALS
CAPTAIN
"Linn Boyke and Zen4K9s was a miracle when we needed one the most... His guidance and coaching not only to Captain, mostly to us, has been invaluable. We now have a great relationship with Captain. Taking him to the park or on a trip is possible now and watching the freedom he can experience brings us pure joy."

BRANDI
"After many horrible dog attacks and one very scary incident with her ‘locking’ her jaw onto a cow and being rushed to the hospital, I thought there had to be someone out there that could help us... After talking to [Linn] for over an hour, I hung up the phone in tears. Tears of happiness that I finally found what I knew had to exist, someone to help me help Brandi."

ROXY
"Roxy and I wanted to sincerely thank Linn for helping us learn how to coexist together peacefully. Before Roxy entered his rehabilitation program we had tried a handful of professional trainers who were unable to give us any insight or tools on how to handle her behavioral problems."

ALICE
"The most important consequence of our work together has been us becoming acutely aware of how to communicate with our dog. It is a gift that we suspect very few dog owners in this country have the privilege of experiencing. We have joy that almost cannot be properly expressed in words thanks to the knowledge Linn imparted upon us."

ANGUS
"I can’t thank Linn enough for all he has done for my family. Linn not only trained Angus, but has given me some valuable life lessons I will never forget... His training has changed our lives."

ANNIE-DOG
"[Annie-Dog] had no social skills (either with people or dogs), as was demonstrated by her aggressive and unpredictable behavior – she was alternatively aggressive and fearful and lashed out when she felt threatened... Her fearful reaction has virtually disappeared... she really is a different dog and we have you to thank for this transformation."

CLIFFORD
"My wife and I adopted our three-year old cocker spaniel, Clifford, from a shelter and quickly found that he had some unpredictable fearful aggression issues... Now Clifford is a calm and happy dog and we’re confident in our ability to control
him. We recommend Zen4K9s to anyone with dog behavior issues."

COBY
"Robin and I are most grateful that we met you.  We offer the highest of recommendations of you and ZEN4K9S without hesitation.  You are the epitome of a “calm & assertive” pack leader and a true professional. Your enthusiasm and knowledge about dog rehabilitation is most profound."

DEGAN
"Degan was a bad dog. And I don’t mean bad in an endearing kind of way, I mean more Cujo than Marley. However Degan wasn’t always bad, he was the unfortunate victim of a dog attack incident which changed both of our lives... I emailed Cesar Millan. Cesar recommended I contact Linn Boyke immediately."

ERRIN
"Because of your help, we were able to leave Errin and Mercy off leash, tell them to relax, if necessary, then, at our choosing, allow each one to eat while the other watched, calling Errin away from his food a couple of times if we wanted to.  It was good to see the contentment and happiness on his face as he maintained his boundaries and limitations. . ."

JACK
"Jack is now quite happy to spend time with Maria.  He will now sit in her lap and will even lie down beside her on the sofa and want “cuddle time.”  He and we have progressed significantly.  We are so appreciative of your help."

JINJIN
"While Linn did all the heavy lifting, he taught me that the buck does not stop there.  Dogs need an outlet for their energy, so I take JinJin for a bike ride every day.  He taught me to monitor her reactions to her surroundings and shape her behavior appropriately.  Because I always keep her in check, I am able to smother her with love without it spoiling her manners.  When I am out of town I board her with Linn, so I can be certain that she is getting the reinforcement and supervision that she needs."

KOJI & HANNA
"Right off the bat, Linn made it clear that, in order for the process to work, not only did the dogs have to be trained, but it was actually more important that Julia and I learn to deal with the dogs in a way that made them feel safe and therefore less aggressive.  This was a hard lesson to learn and it took time but Linn and his staff took that time to work with us and the results have been truly amazing."

KOTI
"I hired numerous trainers prior to Linn. They all had opinions, gimmicks and ideas (all incredibly expensive) but they ultimately had no solutions for the continuous, unhealthy behaviors. With Linn I had finally found a dependable teacher. His unconditional love for dogs willed him to give beyond to assure Koti and I would be healthy. When Linn makes a decision to work with a client it is certain his passion, love, and commitment to his profession, dogs and owners is infallible. His commitment doesn’t end until everyone is happy, healthy and rehabilitated. If you are ready to change, Linn is ready and able to help."

LUCKY
"On a practical level, one of the best tools that I received from Linn was teaching Lucky to feel good about his crate. And, as Linn would say, "the words you use, are the actions you choose", so instead of a crate, my family calls it Lucky's "castle" and we have embraced the concept that putting Lucky in his castle is not punitive at all. In fact, Lucky loves going there because he feels safe and it's his sanctuary. "

NORMAN & COCO
"In such a short time Linn gave us the tools we needed to make our fearful dog more confident and taught us how to establish boundaries and rules for our exuberant puppy who had become our landlord."

PATCHES
"He taught us the things we were doing that were making our dog unbalanced, and what we needed to do to change our behavior so we could let the dog know that she did not need to protect us and that our presence should make her feel safe."

PENELOPE
"I heard Cesar’s Way and realized that the problem was me. She was not a “little person in a fur suit”, of course I had given her a person name and was attaching human emotions to her. Just because I presumed she was abused eight years ago I had probably programmed her to be fearful. I realized that I needed help. As you know, I got [Linn's] name from his web site and I am forever grateful that I did."

PHILLIP
"I learned infinite amounts of dog psychology which allowed me to understand how my actions were being interpreted by Phillip, and Phillip learned that the world is a safe place. He is now the companion that I’d always dreamed of having. Together on our walks we greet neighbors and their dogs happily and both of us have been rehabilitated in the most direct sense of the word. Linn Boyke has the patience, the drive, the instinct, and the sensibility to enable dog owners to truly be strong, loving leaders. I am grateful every day for having found him."

RUDY
"...Rudy still has his wonderful spirit and is as affectionate as ever, but he is not totally out of control and unmanageable.  Linn is obviously incredible with dogs and has the ability to observe every nuance. He is very detail oriented and these qualities also extend to working with people – Linn adjusts his method of communication and training depending on the individual he’s working with and what he thinks they need to succeed."

SAM
"I placed a tearful call to Cesar Millan’s office. A nice woman told me Cesar was booked for the next 6 months, and it sounded like I needed immediate assistance. She referred me to Linn Boyke. Linn came a few days later, and within 2 minutes of him being with Sam, Sam was a changed dog. Seriously. Within 2 minutes!."

SIERRA & EMERSON
"The biggest difference is that I truly believe Linn wants each and every dog he works with to be the best they can be for the rest of their lives. He never rushed through training sessions and he is always there, whether it is answering questions over the phone or in person. I can’t believe how much my confidence has grown with dealing with my dogs. I truly believe because of the basics Linn has taught me, I can handle any situation that we come across."

VITO
"With learnings fresh in mind, Ken started practicing your teachings every night with [Vito] as part of daily "homework" sessions.  Within ten days, [Vito] was a new being!  [Vito] even amazed Ken one night when he came home from work by doing the "happy dance," and jumping about four feet in the air!"

WALLY
"...almost a year to the day that I got Wally, he is now a working therapy dog.   The two of us visit children in hospitals, where Wally is a huge hit.    He has never displayed a single moment of aggression since our work with Linn, and he is an invaluable part of my life."

WILLIE, BELLE, & LOUIE
"When I heard that Linn Boyke was one of only three apprentices to Cesar Milan, I was highly interested in his techniques and ability to work with my dogs. Within the first five minutes of his presence, my dogs were under his control, and very alert. I noticed drastic changes within my dogs in only one meeting with Linn."

ZOEY
"Linn and his team are not only extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior, but also very enjoyable to work with. We began to look forward to our sessions as an opportunity to learn and have fun. They were willing to spend as much time as needed to help us get the most out of the program, and treated all of our questions and concerns with attention and respect."
