Tracey is just amazing and the best review comes from my 9 month old GoldenDoodle who loves her! With Tracey’s guidance I was able to head off some behavioral issues that started to present themselves (and I had tried other trainers beforehand). Savi loves to go to class and just earned her Canine Good Citizen. She definitely has my vote for outstanding and responsive trainers in the area.LeAnne Robinson: Current Student
Great training sessions. Tracy works well with all dog temperaments and owners too. :). I have done rally training and puppy classes with great success.Amy Simpson: Current Student
I have been taking lessons from Tracy for a few years now. My German Shepard is titled in Advance Rally and we are working on Excellence Rally and competition obedience. I also have an Irish Setter (1 yr) and she has worked wonders training him as his concentration span is short (he is all Irish). Her training style is positive not critical. I would highly recommend any and all of her classes.Laura Franklin: Current Student
My aunt and I have been going to Tracy since she opened up her own facility and we love it! Our dogs absolutely love her and we see a big difference in them and are excited to keep training with her for our upcoming show!Cori Wilson: Current Student
My first Rally class (titled dogs in obedience decades ago) ~ OUTSTANDING instruction, Tracy can work with ANY dog or person and, she is so encouraging !Diann Sullivan: Current Student
If you have a dog and are looking for a trainer, Whispering X K9 Training is the best choice! Tracy is a knowledgeable and caring professional trainer! Tracy knows how to train the human how to train the dog! Tracy gets to know your dog and immediately makes a bond with it. My dog trusts her and her assistant trainers. I appreciate everything Tracy has done for my dog and me! The best part about this training is that my friends and family members have commented on how much my dog has changed! Whispering X K9 Training is fantastic! I wish I could double the five stars! Excellent job, Tracy! Thank you!Anna
We started with the basic puppy class and were absolutely blown away by the process and how effective it was in such a short time. We immediately took the advanced puppy class as well and it completely surpassed all expectations. We learned so much about how to train and interact with our puppy. Tracy even helped us learn skills and tricks outside of the regular curriculum that truly helped foster a loving and trusting relationship with our puppy. Tracy’s passion for working with dogs and owners shines through in every class! If I could give higher than five stars I absolutely would!!! Whispering X is the best!James D.
Tracy was so good at commanding the dogs attention in a positive way. I think she trained me more than my dog, because I had no idea all the simple nuances in giving directions. We’d go back in a heartbeat because Ragnar loved it… he’d whine in excitement on the drive there every time and never wanted to leave!Renee
Tracy was an amazing dog trainer, and gave me extremely good advice throughout the whole process. I had to miss a class and she gladly set up a secondary time for me to make up my missed time. I am extremely impressed with not only her knowledge of dogs and body language, but her professional and friendly attitude toward every pet and person in the class. If you need a puppy or dog trained in Whatcom County, this is the place to go!Cam P
We love Tracy! She gave us good advice during her puppy classes on how to be good trainers. Even when we were embarrassed about our puppys behavior, she was a real mentor that came in and guided us to become more confident in our abilities and our pups abilities! What a great teacher and amazing start to our training with our puppy Iroh!Alina V

Tracy is a wonderful trainer and it is obvious she does dog training for pure joy of it. She is dedicated to the dog and owners she trains no matter the back history of the dog, the dog breed or what has been said by previous trainers or doggy daycares. If you want your dog to be AKC certified and have a good dog trainer you will not go wrong with Whispering X K9 Training.Elaine P
My pup loves going to our weekly classes with teacher Tracy. We BOTH learn a lot in a very positive & fun environment. I highly recommend her puppy obedience classes!Jamie A.
Piper Rose just graduated from Puppy Class. We both learned so much from Tracy! The only time Piper misbehaves when we are there is when she is rushing to see Miss Tracy, and forgets her manners. I highly recommend her classes, as she believes in a patient and loving touch with dogs. We can’t wait to start the advanced puppy class next month!Gail H
I cant say enough good things about Tracy, her facility, and her approach to dog training. We tried a number of different training methods and services in the area for our somewhat reactive, anxious mixed-breed dog. For the more sensitive herding type dogs I think Whispering X is the best bet.Our dog is now much more content and confident (as are we), and it really has lent a degree of simplicity and certainty to our lives that was sorely needed. More than anything, I feel we have firm ground to stand on with which to continue training and building a good working relationship with our current and future dogs.Highly recommended!Forrest H.
Highly recommend!! Tracy is a great trainer! Her patient and positive approach is so upbeat and effective! As first time puppy parents we had A LOT of questions. Tracy has a wealth of knowledge and gave us excellent advice and resource recommendations on a variety of all things related to training and dog ownership. I’m really grateful that we were able to find such a great trainer. My puppy loved going to class. He just graduated his puppy class and we’re already looking forward to taking the next class up. The training facility is really nice too, lots of space and light. Ziggy gives Tracy and Whispering X⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🐾🐾.Melinda P.
I love Tracy she and her wonderful husband Sandy. Has always treat me and my dogs like part of there family! Luki is one of my dogs who is my ASD Prospect and has some fear kinks but, due to Tracy calm and funny demeanor my dog Luki has shown great strides and just past his AKC Canine Good Citizen Test with flying colors and now I am signed up for Advance Obedience Class! I recommend anyone to try out here.Amiee K.
Love this place! Perfect location with great training space and in a fun outdoor area for them to get their wiggles out! Tracy is amazing!Angela P.
Tracey is absolutely the best with dogs. Our puppy just graduated puppy class and we are signed up for advanced puppy class. We learned so much and will continue to do training here. If you ever have any questions, she is always getting right back to you to answer them. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for dog training.Staci and Joe W.
Our dog Aspen loves going to Tracys K 9 Academy. We learned so much about navigating through the world of canine interactions. A real pleasure and we look forward to the next training and agility course. ForrestForrest
Tracy does an excellent job of working with dogs and humans. She’s always positive and encouraging. We had a great experience!!D
Amazing place to get training at any skill level or age. I had fun, my dog had fun, the training was easy and effective.Celestino C.
Tracy is a great resource and instructor for navigating you through those tough and joyous moments of puppy life. Our pup is a better behaved companion after this class and we look forward to going on with advanced puppy training.Elizabeth B.
Tracy has been a great help with our puppy. She is very patient and our pup absolute loves her.Allison W.
Nine years ago I took my Doberman puppy to one of Tracys Basic Obedience Class. I was extremely impressed with her gentle positive reward training method. I was pleased with the class and feel that it played a major role in the development of the special bond that my dog and I share today. Since then, I have recommended Tracy to several of my clients. Some of these owners were seeking advice on how to further train and bond with their pets, while others were looking for assistance in correcting major behavioral problems. All of my clients who used Tracys services were extremely pleased with the outcome. I would not hesitate to continue recommending her. Tracy is experienced and proficient in training dogs and always has the welfare of the dogs and their owners as her number one priority.In addition, Im excited and looking forward to enrolling my dog in her new Treibball class at her beautiful facility.Rachel B.
Tracy is amazing with both dogs and people. Her positive and encouraging approach to training made her classes the obvious choice for us. The best part is that her methods work! Tracy is supportive and always available for our questions. I recommend her classes for anyone, any dog, at any level of obedience.Victorious H.
Tracy is an excellent, experienced dog trainer! She understands and loves dogs. She is successful with all breeds and her classes are fun for dogs as well as their owners!Jamie P.
