    Darah is a passionate individual and cares for every person and dog she works with. I had adopted an animal with severe anxiety, which led her to be fearful around new people and animals, and caused her to nip and bite. This new dog also liked to test her boundaries, and was hard to handle around new people and new situations. After working with Darah, and continuing our training diligently at home, my dog is now a well-adjusted member of my family. She knows and responds to all commands, is less reactive, and more comfortable in her own skin. Darah even taught us some valuable "human training" so that we know how to set up our dog for success in new situations. The hard work was worth it for us and the dog. I cannot thank Darah enough for how she has helped us and would recommend her as a trainer for any "underdog"!

    Darah is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the well-being of our furry K9 friends. Her schedule is very flexible and offers in home training. She was a pleasure to work with.

  • Jared Williamson

    Darah displayed extreme professionalism and knowledge from the beginning of our training sessions with Forrest through our last session. She listened to our goals and helped give us the knowledge to correct the problematic behavior from Forrest and help him be our lovable family member he is today.

    After taking our Newfoundland puppy to two different trainers with no success, we found Underdog K-9 Academy and Darah Williams, this is the best training for Me and my fur-kid, now a two year old Newfoundland puppy. We just welcomed our second Newfy puppy into our home and our in our third week of training class with Underdog K-9 Academy. I would recomend any one with a fur-kid young or old to give this trainer a call.
