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. “
“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!”
“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.”
“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. “
“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.”
“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!”
“Zoey and I have been training with Tracey for the past few months. Tracey is absolutely phenomenal!! She really listened to all my concerns and we discussed what “issues” Zoey was already exhibiting as a puppy. I am so excited because Zoey is really progressing!! Her incessant barking is quickly getting under control. Zoey even passed the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Program!! We are so excited to continue training! The sky is the limit with Tracey by our side!! I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Tracey!!”
“This is my dog Luna. And we have been working with Tracy for about 4-5 months now. I can not say enough about how wonderful Diversity K9 is. It?s clear from the first meet-up that Tracy really knows her stuff. From basic obedience training to service dog work Tracy is amazing. Tracy has also been super flexible when it comes to working around my work schedule, and working with me through some of my health challenges. Without the help of Tracy I would not be where in my Service Dog Journey.”
“We finally broke down after living without a dog for two years. We?ve had dogs our entire lives and after losing our boxer, Vito, who we lost two years ago, we didn?t know if we could do it again. But, we found and adopted the most beautiful, loving, little dog who had suffered the first two very hard years of his life. Although he was very loving, cuddly, and trusting of us. He had been horribly attacked and maimed by a large pit bull. He was completely detached, not engaged, and had extreme barrier and anxiety around other dogs. He followed commands and learned tricks in the house but was completely distracted outside.
With working in the medical fields, being overwhelmed with COVID hours, and not having the time to devote to proper training. We knew we had to act fast to ensure our bubbies quality of life and SAFETY, immediately. We researched and found Tracy/Diversity. We contacted her and she got us in immediately. She worked with our little lover for two short weeks, which broke our hearts to part with him. She treated him, and coordinated with us, like he was her own and the most important little person in the world. She used extremely positive techniques that completely transformed his negative behavior. I can?t thank Tracy and her crew enough.
Result: upon bringing Utah home the results were immediately apparent. Same overwhelmingly loving Utah. But, he is now completely engaged. Way closer to us despite being away for two weeks, which again broke our hearts and was very difficult. Tracy and her crew did what I didn?t have time to do. It would have taken me months. In only two weeks My little buddy will now have an enormously better quality of life and be infinitely more safe and secure. I am so grateful! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And we will be bringing him back for boarding and additional training.”
“We have recommended Tracy and the team at Diversity K9 to anyone who will listen! Our 8 month old pitbull puppy just finished the two-week board and train program. She went in for insecurity around other dogs and people, jumping, and leash manners. After two weeks, she’s a whole new dog! It was like pushing the reset button and starting a new training routine that allows our puppy to be a dog and still learn to have great manners! Tracy was genuinely invested in Ellie and we were so impressed with her progress.
On top of that, we’re so excited to have found a “family” in Diversity K9. We completely trust Tracy and the team with Ellie and it’s clear she loves being there!!”
“We absolutely love Diversity K9! Our pup went there for the two-week board and train program, and goes there for weekend boarding when we are out of town. She was a very nervous little girl, but Tracy has worked wonders with her. She is so excited when we pull up that I think her tail is going to break off from wagging so hard! We just picked her up this afternoon, and she is wiped out from playing with all of her puppy friends.”
“My chocolate lab, Piper, did the 2 week board and train for fear of strangers and being overly hyper. After spending 2 weeks with Tracy, she is a completely different dog. She no longer wants to constantly jump on us and she is getting much more comfortable with other people. Tracy sent me video updates of Piper?s progress throughout her stay and spent plenty of time at pick up going over what they had been working on so I can continue training her at home. I would highly recommend Diversity K9!”
“I have been having socializing/aggression issues with Bentley for the two years since we?ve adopted him. In just a few sessions, I have seen major improvements on him already. I can only imagine what improvements we will see in the long term. THANK YOU!”
“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.”
“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. “
“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!”
“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!”
“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!!!!”
