    I booked boarding services through Rover.com. My dog was there for 22 hours and I received no phone calls, updates, or questions during that time. When I picked up my dog, he was covered in feces, and his bed and blanket which I brought with me were covered in feces. I had to clean my dog in the front yard with old towels and wipes that were in my car and then take him to a pet store for a bath. No one offered to help clean my dog. My dog was left unsupervised in a crate while being boarded. The boarding profile description on Rover.com never stated dogs were to be kept in crates and also stated the dog would be supervised by two people day and night. For Valorzen, I recommend updating your company website and boarding profiles with accurate photos of the conditions that dogs will be boarded and an accurate description. If a dog in your care has behavior issues or problems, call the owner immediately. If a dog defecates in a confined space unattended, clean the dog immediately.

    Great People
    The people here are very kind and thoughtful. Our puppy thoroughly enjoyed his time there and was able to get down his basic manners. In addition to always keeping us up to date on how our little pup was doing, they were very easy to communicate with and schedule pick-up and drop off times while always being prepared to answer out questions. Full support Valorzen and would recommend them to anyone who needs "doggy daycare" in the future.

    I'm so glad I found Valorzen for group training classes. We received lots of individual attention due to small class sizes. Each class was focused on a couple commands which were then carried out at home over the course of the week. It was so nice seeing it click for my dog right away. You can tell the trainers love their job and are very knowledgeable in a multitude of training techniques, diet and health topics. I look forward to attending the intermediate class with my dog Fritz.

    Went here to get some training and help to get our two dogs their AKC good citizen test. Everything was conducted with the uttermost professionalism and great training and coaching to help us out every step of the way. A great place with knowledgeable staff. And to be honest the only time they honked the horn in the parking lot it was so restrained and professional I am thinking of having them train my car next!

    Tameesha and partner (forgive me forgot name) arrived on time, professional and yet friendly, took time necessary to introduce themselves and took the time to understand and know the client. Did not feel rushed, my questions were answered with goals and expectations shared by Tameesha and by me. Looking forward to the ongoing experience.

    I contacted Valorzen about a person who contacted me for a dog needed for a companion/service dog. She contacted this person and was willing to help her out on finding the right dog for her as I was over 3 hours away and could not help.

    I thought that private dog training was expensive and was apprehensive about paying so much money but wow! You can get a lot out of each lesson with a trainer who knows their stuff. Excellent experience and will be working with valorzen over the next few weeks. Cant wait to see even more progress.

    We took our 2 3 yr old Boston's to Valorzen Beginners training and they did very well. We worked with out dogs at home as it's necessary and they are still obeying commands and listening well. We had a good time and were able to ask questions and review anything we didn't understand. The price was reasonable and the second dog was discounted. Would recommend them for your doggie training.

    I completed a group class and Canine Good Citizen testing for my Min Pin in August. 5 stars

    We had Tameesha help us train our hound mix that we got this summer from animal control and our German Shepherd mix for excessive barking problems and basic obedience. We are doing private lessons and then will be taking group lessons with the hound mix in the fall. The trainer is very helpful, highly recommend! The discount for multiple dogs was a plus.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always had a passion, obsession maybe, for dogs! I began working with dogs when I was very young. In 2011 I started training and working with dogs virtually daily and I trained my first Service Dog start to finish. In 2015 I decided to dive in with both feet and make this my full time job and officially became an LLC. Currently, I train and compete in everything from competition obedience to protection dog sports to barn hunt (a sport where dogs find rats protected in tubes).
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the trainer you hire trains in a way that you are comfortable with!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Help Us Help You - As opposed to just saying things such as "He jumps on visitors!" What would you like your dog to do instead? Sit quietly at the door? Go lay on his bed? This will help trainers know what to train your dog to do and help us to better help you.
