I hired Nate after another trainer left my house running! I have a 3 month old golden retriever who I'm pretty sure is the devil's spawn:) Nate was recommended by a friend when she heard me complaining about her behavior. When I first called him to make an appointment, he spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me giving me tips on how to control my puppy. Nate has an amazing understanding of animal behavior and is so passionate about what he does. During his first visit, by dog was sitting by his side acting like an angel in about 5 minutes. It was amazing. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. I recommend Nate to anyone with bad pet behaviors. As hard as you might try, you cant do it yourself!

Anitra is awesome! My dog took right to her. I was concerned about her picking him up as he seems to still have abandonment issues from when he was young and mistreated before I got him. She got here, he immediately connected with her and jumped right into her car. She did a beautiful job grooming him, reported that he got along with everyone, he is very friendly and socialized. I highly recommend Anitra, her heart is golden, she honors you and your animal/s and is a lovely person, as well as a great groomer! If I needed a pet sitter I would not hesitate to call her. She is working towards being a mobile groomer which is wonderful too, until then though she picks up, drops off and is very reasonable in her charge. I will be using her again, and am not sure what I will do when we move back up to Verde for the summer! I just love it when I find someone awesome!

Sabine has been 'doggie-sitting' our poodles for about two years. Prior to this we took our dogs to a kennel. Keeping our dogs at home rather than a kennel has been a godsend. Sabine has provided Remy and Marty personalized attention in their own home. Remy and Marty enjoy Sabine's visits, play time, fresh water, and of course, the treats. During visits, Sabine also checks our home to make sure all is secure, cleans messes (when necessary) and makes sure both dogs are doing okay. She is readily available by phone or email if I want to check to check on the dogs. We still hate to leave our dogs, but we now have the peace of mind that Remy and Marty are in familiar surroundings, visited by a familiar human and they don't have to deal with unfamiliar faces, smells, personalities and other animals. Sabine has been an outstanding 'doggie-sitter' for our precious animals.

Brandy is amazing! Our dog requires a lot of patience and we couldn't ask for a more professional resource than Brandy. She is working with us to help make our business trips less stressful for our dog and she is persistent in her efforts to build a strong relationship with our dog. With our business travel increasing, 5 business week trips, yes that is correct, five weeks of trips on the books for the coming months so far... We are extremely thankful to have connected with Brandy.

Although we are not very far in to our journey, I am learning so much about the needs of my pets and how my behavior effects their behavior. I feel as though Wolf is the perfect match for my boys and I feel confident that he will give me the tools to be a better person owner.

I highly, highly recommend Brenda at Awesome Mannered Canines! She is an outstanding trainer, and it is clear that she loves what she does! I have worked with a couple of other trainers over the years, and no one has wowed me until I started working with Brenda! I have taken three dogs through her group classes, and every time has been a fantastic experience. Not only do the dogs learn their commands, but they also learn how to behave around other dogs, and in public places! Brenda goes above and beyond just basic puppy training. By the end of the six week class, it is clear that each and every dog enrolled has made tremendous progress! I have also seen remarkable successes in dogs that Brenda has worked with to correct problem behaviors. Two of the dogs in Brenda's Canine Good Citizen class (which dog and I attended as well) had previously worked with her due to leash-reaction issues, and are now on their way to earning their CGC - that's amazing progress!! She helped my pit bull, Arya and I earn her Canine Good Citizen certification last year, and it's been an amazing experience. I honestly couldn't recommend her more highly!

It is with pleasure that I offer this recommendation for Julie Daly and her pet sitting service. I was in (desperate) need of someone who is dependable, compassionate, and gentle, and also someone who could provide the extra attention needed for a dog that struggles with separation anxiety. Julie came to my rescue and I consider myself very lucky to have found her. Although I have known Julie for only a few months, she has lovingly watched my anxiety-ridden boy multiple times a week so I could run daily errands, go to dinner or a movie with friends and travel out-of-town to be with my gravely ill father. She is a godsend. Her easy manner was a good match for my nervous Beagle and it is such a relief to know someone so caring and calm is with him. Since meeting Julie, I have peace of mind whenever I leave whether it is for a few hours or for two weeks. Julie is a wonderful individual who conducts herself in a friendly and professional manner. She is trustworthy and very generous of her time and most importantly, gentle with my anxious dog. I can tell she genuinely enjoys taking care of animals and feels deeply responsible for their well-being. I appreciate that Julie takes the time to let my dog warm up to her and I love seeing how well he responds to her. Although it's always difficult to leave our pets, knowing that Julie will be taking care of my boy gives me piece of mind. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Julie to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter who is kind, trustworthy, responsible and compassionate.

Diana was excellent! I sent an email requesting more info on her website and in less than 24 hours she contacted me to setup a time to meet. When we met she was through and took notes about all the needs I had for my cat. She sent me pictures during my trip to help me feel more comfortable and kept me in the loop! This was my first time using an in-home pet care service and I highly recommend it. My cat didn't have to suffer through the stress of traveling, a new place and other animals. Diana was professional and I felt completely comfortable having her take care of my cat.

When I lived in Phoenix, I without fail used TLC to care for my cats while I was on vacation. In one instance, when I was seriously ill and in the hospital, Margie and staff came to my apartment and cared for my cats for 9 days on the spur of the moment. The staff is clean, experienced, courteous and Margie only hires caring animal lovers as staff. I would not hesitate to recommend TLC While You're Away to anyone in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

I have been using this company for 23 years! I trust them with all the animals I've had thru those years (including a rat and several bearded dragons). The animals simply love them, and they really CARE. Kurt & Shirley are more like a part of our extended family at this point. From overnights to once a day, they go above AND beyond. Totally dependable. You won't be sorry!!

I would absolutely recommend Amy to my friends and family! Amy was extremely friendly and knowledgeable during our training sessions. She offered great feedback and different things I could try to correct some bad behavior. We are definitely on our way to a very well behaved dog!

Yes, Mark is my brother. :) He has always been wonderful with animals. He treats dogs with patience and kindness, yet he is firm when he needs to be. He works well with both my 16 yr old Lab and 6 yr old Golden. He is also very reliable and trustworthy. He will do a great job with your precious pup. I highly recommend him.

About

When people first get meet me I often get told "I have never met anyone like you before". This is because at first glance I appear as your average 19 year old boy. The more you spend real face-to-face time with me, almost everyone picks up on a very genuine, real vibe. For this reason I am not as social with my peers. It is hard to find legitimate, good-hearted people in this world. I have found my surrounding student body is typically caught up in their own lives, out for themselves, and/or don't see the big picture in life. I don't waste my time with them, instead I practice patience in finding people willing to put the same into relationships for the same good reasons as I. So, I have maybe a handful of actual friends, I have my family, and a lot of free time to spend caring for the sweet innocent souls of our beloved pets.You will have trouble finding someone with my loyalty and genuine heart.
