Our Satisfied Customers

“As a Police Officer and new K9 handler, Tracy has been very professional and dedicated to certifying the UCF Police Department’s Labrador Retriever. With myself having no experience with training dogs, Tracy was able to help be better qualified as a K9 unit. Tracy’s training in odor detection and behavioral obedience was able to help me certify my dog with National Narcotic Dog Detection Association (NNDDA), as an explosive ordinance detection K9. I highly recommend Tracy for dogs in need of training whether it’s police dogs or personal pet obedience. ”
Officer Jerad Engel

“Tracy is a WONDERFUL trainer! For the last two years she has partnered with our organization to help train and rehabilitate some of the most challenging dogs in local Central Florida shelters. Dogs with histories of multiple prior bites, multiple returns to the shelter for behavior – dogs with no where else to turn. Thanks to Tracy’s AMAZING work with these animals, all of them have successfully rehabilitated into new permanent homes and none of them have been returned for behavior or had further incidents after their time in training. Without her amazing knowledge and skills, so many animals would never have been able to leave the shelter alive. She is such a gift to the dogs she works with, and to area rescues!”
Erin Silley

“Tracy was an amazing trainer for our pup, Ivy. She worked with Ivy’s fear of men and dogs and there has been a huge, positive change. Since her board and train, Ivy has had nothing but happy encounters with men. She now walks through our Lowe’s store and loves on anybody that will pay attention to her. In the past, she would aggressively bark at any male that she could see. She still has a bit of work around other dogs, but she is doing way better than before she worked with Tracy. The best part is that Tracy gave both Ivy and us the tools to be successful throughout Ivy’s journey.

Tracy is great with following up and providing feedback throughout the training. We received daily pictures and/or video of Ivy’s progress. When Ivy was ready, Tracy included us in the process. Well… more like she trained us!

On a scale of 1 to 5, Tracy is a 10! She goes above and beyond! I would recommend anyone to use Tracy’s talent and passion for animals!”

Chad Haggerty

“Tracy is amazing! She’s gone above and beyond for me many times with my dog who has some pretty specific needs. She’s in constant communication with updates, progress and always follows up prior to make sure all is well. She’s also helped train him to be more obedient. Very impressed and would definitely recommend using her.”
Jason Zell

“I spent a few years looking for a trainer that really understood my needs and the needs of my dogs, but was also professional, available for questions outside of class, and empathetic when situations would come up that I needed extra training on. Tracy Cooksey is hands down, the best trainer I have worked with in Orlando. She even helped me with fundamentals like my posture, leash holding, and understanding my dogs. I have successfully trained 2 dogs with her and send everyone I know her way. She is an incredible person, rescue advocate, and adaptable trainer. She changed how I handle my fur kids and I’d work with her anywhere she went. ”
Katie

“Tracy was absolutely wonderful. My two dogs had gotten in a pretty serious fight and I was very concerned about them being able to be together, especially on a long drive moving to TX 2 weeks after the fight. She helped me understand what may have caused the issue, how to help one dog with his anxiety, and tips to keep it from happening again. It has made a world of difference and they are once more best buddies. I highly recommend K9 Diversity.”
Jana Colman

“I have seen what Tracy can do with dogs first hand. She took two shelter dogs and turned them into top notch drug sniffer dogs. If you want an amazing trainer who really listens to you and can really help your dog, call Diversity K9!”
Krissi Dee

“Tracy is hands down the best dog trainer we’ve worked with (and no, she’s not the only one we’ve worked with. She’s just that good). And she has done great work with a variety of dogs and temperaments, from our very confident German Shepherd to our pretty insecure hound rescue. I recommend Tracy to everyone that needs help with their dog, which, in my experience, is most everyone.”
Chad Turnbull

“Tracy is great with the dogs and you can tell so loves them. Sophie loves her!”
Ellen Rosser Vandeberghe

“Tracy is knowledgeable and her services have helped my dog’s reactivity issues tremendously. Plus my dogs absolutely love it when she comes over!”

“Diversity K9 has made a World of difference in our lives! So thankful for the continued help, support, and direction!”
Jennifer Krogel

“Tracy has been amazing for my puppy. I got Gypsy from a shelter at 4 months and she immediately started showing fear and aggression towards everyone except me. Every other trainer I called told me she was too young for that behavior and she didn’t need training. Tracy was the first person to validate my concerns and agree to evaluate Gypsy. We put her in the 2 week board and train program, which wasn’t an easy decision for me. I didn’t want to leave my new puppy for 2 weeks! But Tracy made the experience amazing!! She updated me daily, sometimes multiple times a day with pictures and videos of her progress. Even after coming home Tracy would answer any of my text questions quickly and gives great tips on how to work with your dog once home. You can tell she really cares about the dogs she’s working with and has a great knowledge of dogs and their behaviors. Thank you so much Tracy!!!”
Cassie Fillmore

“I highly recommend Diversity K9 services. Tracy has been a godsend helping me with my 1 year old English Bull terrier, Mary Jane, with leash pulling, leash reactivity, anxieties to new things, and “diva” like stubborn behavior. I’m incredibly grateful for her help and expertise. Walks are enjoyable, I can have people over to my house without MJ jumping all over them and I have a better understanding of the “whys” to help handle behaviors when they arise. Tracy has given me to tools to continue to help Mary Jane. She uses positive reinforcement rewarding the right behaviors. Tracy is amazing and I can’t thank her enough! I’m so glad she was recommended to me! ❤️🙌🏼”
Kim

“Tracy is extremely talented! My little Theodore is 4 and equally smart as he is stubborn. He greets everyone by jumping to eye level (he’s 12 lbs), tugging on clothes, and generally smothering. I couldn’t have people over to hang out on the couch without him going nuts and “talking over us” if he is ignored. I left him with Tracy for 12 days and I feel like now I have a calm, cool, and collected version of the loveable psycho I was used to! He knows his place, waits patiently for guests to settle in before politely saying hi, and accepts that the world doesn’t revolve around him! She sent me videos and updates multiple times a day, just what a single dog mommy needed! So excited about this progress! WORTH IT!”
Alina

“Caring, knowledgeable and dedicated to helping humans and their furry friends. They’re awesome and Tracy is amazing!”
Federika

“I would highly recommend Diversity K9 services. Tracy has helped me with my new puppy, Lulu. She has gone through at home training and board and train. She is now fully house broken and very well behaved. Tracy has a gift working with animals. You can really tell she cares about each and every one of the dogs that she works with. I had called around before finding Tracy and many other places wanted to use a shock collar right off the bat which I did not want to do with my small shih tzu. She uses real training methods and reward systems that truly work and allows the dog to not be scared by the training. She has also helped my older dog who has anxiety issues. I cannot say enough good things about Tracy and her services. Her prices are reasonable and the gift of having a well-behaved dog will last a lifetime!”
Kristin

“I can’t possibly say enough great things about Tracy and her training program. My sweet pup had lots of anxiety, obsessive behaviors, and was a nervous wreck all the time. From the second she came home she was like a new dog. So calm, happy, and content. No more pacing around and being unsettled. She is able to relax and enjoy her life now which means everything to me! Her obsessive barking has stopped and is allowing us both to relax! I was so nervous to send her away for two whole weeks. Tracy made the process so much easier by sending pictures, videos and updates daily. I can’t thank Tracy and Diversity K9 enough for being so patient, supportive and loving towards both me and my sweet Stella!”
Megan

“One of the best trainers we have had. Tracy was able to help me with my dog get over bad behaviors. She was able to train him to the point that I can take my dog to a dog park with no problem. I would definitely recommend.”
Nuria

“I can’t say enough about Diversity K9! Tracy is an amazing trainer. She cares so much about all the dogs she trains. She helped my Lab conquer different challenges and coached me to continue with her learning. I highly recommend her.”
JM

“Diversity K9 has been training Sandy (German Shepard girl) for 9 weeks and also she stayed on boarding two week ago for 3 days. I cannot said any bad thing about that even more If I need to recommend a training/boarding dogs place. It is the place without debut. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.”
Rafael

“We have a young, very large and very strong (but sweet!) Irish Wolfhound and Tracy’s training has been invaluable. His youth, size and excitement level was at times dangerous for us and others–whether pulling too hard on the leash or over excitement at people coming to the front door– so it was necessary to find a confident and knowledgeable trainer to help us. Boru has been so much better on the leash and at home. We couldn’t be happier….and neither could he!”
Leigh

“Tracy was sent from heaven! Since 27 years we gave home to rescue dogs (and cats), even 2 Belgian Malinois. Since my last dog died few months ago I missed my daily walks and wanted another dog. Through a rescue I found the cutest puppy possible (Border Collie Mix) : love at first sight. He has been found when he was 3 months old and spent over a month with the rescue lady, where he could recover from his past. Unfortunately after 2 days with me the puppy shut completely down and was scared of everything an everyone. He was severely depressed for 2 weeks and needed help.
Thanks to the great care of Tracy and her incredible knowledge he is becoming a happy dog, who loves to cuddle and play with the cats.
Tracy is a wonderful lady to work with and I can not thank her enough.
When you are looking for a dog trainer she is The One!”

“We are a breed specific rescue & the breed we take tends to be stubborn & very difficult to train. We rescued a very energetic, anxious puppy who had been left in a crate the majority of her life, given very little attention & absolutely no training, discipline or boundaries. She came to us completely out of control, unruly & completely unadoptable. Her previous owner was medicating her to tolerate her in a crate & being kicked out of the only home she knew spiked her anxiety which only worsened things. We turned to Tracy with Diversity K9 Services for help & she immediately called us back. We went over an assessment over the phone as to what was going on & she got us on her books for 2 weeks of board-and-train. Tracy carefully and slowly weaned our puppy off of the drugs she was on (with guidance from our vet) and figured out what was going on with her & what made her tick. She worked with her daily & kept us updated the entire time with videos that blew our mind. When we picked her up after her 2 weeks of training we were astounded by the calmed down, well mannered, happy dog she had become in those 2 weeks. Tracy didn’t change our puppy, she just brought out the best in her & got her to her potential. Not only were we happy but our puppy was happy. She blossomed with Tracy & enjoyed the discipline & boundaries she learned as she was eager to please & yearned for structure she just never knew what that looked like. Our puppy went on to get adopted into the very first home she went into & lives there to this day. Our puppy went from an unruly, anxious, out of control dog who would urinate & deficate in her crate, jump & bite playfully at people’s face, shred any sort of bedding in her crate, pulled to the point of choking herself in a leash, was too wound up to sit on a couch, cuddle or be pet…. to a well mannered little lady who walks nicely on a leash, loves to play with other dogs & loves to snuggle with her humans. Thanks to Tracy, our unruly wild child got her happily ever after & for that us here at Bull Terrier Rescue of the Sunshine State are forever grateful!”

“Tracy Cooksey, with Diversity K-9, did an amazing job getting our explosive detection K-9 trained. Her dedication and work ethic is unsurpassed. Tracy is all heart when it comes to making certain the dogs she trains are driven, loyal, and happy. We have a successful new member of our UCFPD K-9 team, thanks to Tracy and Diversity K-9.”

“Do you want something more for you and your dog?

I was researching when I met Tracey Cooksey through a friend. I asked questions, watched Tracey work with some dogs and soon I purchased a German Shepherd puppy.  I began working with Tracey and my new puppy (Taser).  Tracey was able to evaluate my puppy and structure a positive learning environment that was enjoyable for both Taser and I. I looked forward to our training session every week. Tracey has come a long way in balancing Taser mentally and socially while teaching me to build an amazing bond between dog and handler. We are currently working on our BH in Obedience for Schutzund/IPO. Tracey continues to work with both Taser and I. She is amazing! What I have seen of Tracey is a gift for dog training. I am learning a lot from Tracey and she continues to be the one I TRUST the most when it comes to what is best for my dog.

Tracy stands out above others due to her positive outlook, dedication, and she truly cares about what is best not only for  the dogs, but the family as a whole.

I can truly say her smile and laugh is truly entertaining!!

I would highly recommend Tracey Cooksey to anyone that is interested in a well balanced, happy dog, whether it be a family pet or working dog.”

Gregory J. Dalton & Taser

“Without Tracy, I would not have been able to keep Bruno. I adopted Bruno from Orange County Animal Services on July 3rd, 2017. Bruno was labeled as destructive, and anxious. I wanted to help him, so I adopted him anyway. Once I took Bruno home he was out of control. He would jump (all four legs) on the counter tops, bark, whine, and pace non stop. I was a hostage in my own home, due to Bruno’s extreme anxiety. I attempted to crate train him. Where upon, he broke the crate apart in less than a minute trying to escape.

I was referred to Tracy by a Volunteer at the shelter. She saved my life, and Bruno’s! Tracy provided us with exceptional training, supplements, and even referred me to a vet that specializes in Canine’s like Bruno. I highly recommend Tracy! Bruno is now living a normal life in our home. We are able to leave him by himself, walk him on a leash, he also obeys commands, and is great with our cat. Thank you Tracy, for your passion and expertise.”

“Tracy has been working with my puppies sine they were 3 months old and they have learned so much so fast. They’ve already earned their AKC Star Puppy designation! She has taught me so much about how to train them and handle any issues as they arise. Always very positive and loving toward my babies. I highly recommend her. ”
Karen Bras

“If you want some help with your four legged baby, you are in the right place! Me and my dog (2 yo female GSD) have gone through several trainers in the Orlando area and without question Tracy is the very best. She has a unique gift and the ability to really tune into dogs. She was able to connect with mine right away and quickly identify her needs. What I love most about Tracy is that she treats the root of problems rather than just the symptoms. She has helped me understand WHY my dog does some of the odd things she does in addition to showing me how to help her through her issues. I am able to be a much better mom to my girl because of her, and she has also helped me have a much better dog. As a bonus, she’s a people person too so training sessions are really fun for all involved. I can’t say enough great things. Get on her calendar asap!”
Talea

“Our family was so fortunately referred to Tracy for training and help with our current dog and introducing a new puppy to our family. We have owned many dogs our entire lives and gone through many, many training programs and hired trainers in the past but Tracy has far surpassed all of our previous experiences. She is extremely kind, passionate, highly knowledgeable, extremely professional and focused on getting successful results for the whole family. With so many trainers and programs out there, I would encourage you to call Tracy and will refer her to anyone with current dog issues or anyone bring a new dog home. A++ experience and results!”
Dennis Bowman

“Tracy is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dogs and their unique behaviors. She is patient and loving and her passion for the canine world is evident in how she interacts with them.”
Robin Bush

“She is an amazing trainer that understand very well Dog behavior.”
Marcelo Gonzalez

“We put our dog Sadie with this program. Sadie went red zone hyper and was hard to control. We were desperate! Tracey and this program gave us our dog back. With the training Sadie got here and the tutoring we got to keep the training going, our girl is now roaming the house! baby gates are gone, walking her is now pleasant! I can’t say enough good things about Tracey and Diversity K9.”
Leanne Loeffel

“Tracy is an amazing trainer! She has helped me with foster pups, my pups and my boyfriends dog. Let me tell you, ALL very different breeds with very different personalities from anxiety to reactiveness and everything in between!. She is incredibly knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to have help with my fur babies!”
Marcella Pereira

“Amazing company! Best of the best. Tracy is absolutely top of the line!”
Justin

“Cannot recommend Diversity K9 any more highly! Tracey has gotten my dog to stop taking anything she can reach and destroying my house in 2 sessions. She is incredible!”
Jules

“Highly recommend. Tracy did a wonderful job with my rescue doxie. The training she provided turned a very insecure and reactive dog into one that loves to work for praise and treats. ❤️🐾”
Theo

“I work with a local rescue R.A.I.N. and we have used Tracy for multiple dogs with different “issues”. We are really happy with the results, Tracy is the real deal and she has made a huge impact on successful adoptions for us, and helping us help the dogs that we rescue. We love her!”
Leslie R.A.I.N Rescue

“Completely recommend Diversity K9 Dog training to everyone. Tracy is wonderful and my pup adores her. She is very helpful and wants to see dogs succeed. My pup is a very fearful pup and she is helping us with reactivity. So far, the results are amazing.”
Rachel

“Tracy does great work she got my father-in-law dog to stop biting everybody’s feet.”
Luke

“Tracy has done wonders with the newest addition (Bradley) to our pack! She’s very knowledgeable and patient in working to find the best fit for the animals and you. You can tell she genuinely cares for the animals and has a vested interest in their progress! Highly recommend working with Tracy!”
Christine

“Tracy is an angel! What started as a “board and train” for a week has turned into so much more. Tracy is a part of our “family” forever now and will continue to train with Cardi regularly. I needed her to help Cardi with a couple of simple commands such as “off” and “come” and she has made a huge difference in such a short amount of time! It’s unreal! Even more important to me was the care, love and attention Cardi would get and I’m over the moon with the consistent communication, daily videos and texts Tracy sent! She definitely works these pups but also shows so much love! Tracy is right where she needs to be and is simply excellent at what she does. Anyone who knows me, knows I have high expectations and expect a lot! Tracy with Diversity K9 Dog Training has exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting their dogs trained with kindness, professionalism and true expertise! Cardi B. misses her and I’m home! 🐾😍🦴🐾”
Deanna

“Part of our reluctance to get another puppy was the fear of having to leave him behind and in tender care in our busy life.
Tracy at Diversity K9 has been the answer to our prayer. She did some training for Cooper, our English Cream Golden Retriever, and became our sitter for him. You simply cannot find anyone better. We love her and so does Cooper. We can leave without a heavy heart ….and that is the greatest gift.
I could not possibly recommend her more…she is 10 stars!!!
And if it is training you are looking for….look no further!!!!”

Bruce

“Tracy with Diversity K9 Services was a huge help with our newest addition to the family! My goldendoodle needed some one on one, constant reinforcement for basic behavior and commands. After two weeks with Tracy, she was a different puppy! She could walk on a leash without pulling, responded to recall and sit/laydown/stay like second nature! I highly recommend her services to any dog owner.”
Haley

“I have a Pyranese/Lab mix that wasn’t listening and would jump on anyone and everyone she could. After just two sessions with Tracy, my dog started listening to me and I can now let her out when guests are over because she will sit instead of jumping on them. If you’re having trouble getting your dog to listen to you, then I’d highly recommend scheduling a consultation with Tracy!”
Joshua

“Wonderful trainer! Ive learned so much and now my pup is behaving so much better. Tracy really takes the time to understand the reasons behind behaviors and customize training. 10/10 recommend!”
Lisa

“She trained our 7 month old GSD, her name is Nova for 2 weeks. We are so happy with the results that we encourage anyone needing help with their dog to reach out to her!”
Valerie

“Tracy really stands out above the rest! She is so knowledgeable and caring. She’s not a one plan fits all dogs kind of trainer. She puts so much thought and effort into what’s best for your dog. She’s also just a nice person to work with, she’s not pushy or condescending doesn’t make you feel like you’re being graded (think we all know that type). You can stop researching trainers, just call K9 diversity! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
M Hotch

“Tracy is so knowledgeable about dog behaviors and how to correct them. She is extremely confident in what she is doing and is very hands on. I contacted Tracy because my dog has some aggressive tendencies. She was able to teach me how to work on this behavior and it really helped ease my anxiety. My dog is still far from perfect but he is doing much better!”
