Bruce offered great insight and helpful tips from his personal experience. He was very personable and listened to us, which is really important to make sure our needs were being met! He was extremely fair and we will be using him in the future for our dog training needs!
I met Tom from K9katelynn through a friend that graduated from his training program with her two poodles. While I was a bit skeptical at first, as I had been down the private dog training route before, I was still a bit overwhelmed with my dogs lack of obedience and anxious behavior. Tom took the time to understand my goals as a dog owner of two minature poodles and my desire to have them fully and happily integrated into our family. His organized and methodical approach to step by step training made perfect sense to me. He helped me understand that with patience and loving praise, my dogs would very soon understand the newly placed boundaries that would nurture them physically, emotionally and mentally. I quickly put into action training techniques that he taught me to eliminate jumping and we experienced, immediate positive results. Later today we did our first "walk" in the pool, also marked with great success. Each dog swam on a lead for approximately 15 minutes with short rest breaks. As I sit here now, writing this review, they are both sleeping quietly in their own space rather than anxiously demanding my attention. I realize the success of a perfectly trained dog lies with my willingness to be prepared and consistent. I am willing to put in the hard work now for the long term gain of being a pet parent to two stunning, happy and well behaved mini poodles. Thank you Tom for your honesty and courage in showing me my well intentioned tough love and rigidity in raising these dogs wasn't aigned with my desire for them to exist harmoniously with our family. If you're considering dog training for your puppy or dog, please give K9Katelynn an opportunity to get to know you and your dog. I'm hard pressed to believe you'll find a more loving and patient trainer.
Kimberly came to my home to help me with my two dogs (puppy and older dog) that seemed to be not getting along. She was willing to do an assessment and she gave me amazing feedback as to dog behavior that I did not understand. She was great at interpreting the problem and offered a wonderful solution that is already starting to work. I would highly recommend Kimberly for dog training.
Anita is looking after our two dogs, walking them and doing training with our puppy. She is excellent! She gets on very well with the dogs (and our cats), goes above and beyond expectations and does extra little jobs we haven't even asked for! The animals love her and I don't know what we would do without her!
Elisa has been really great at training our dog! We’re not finished with the sessions yet, But we’re happy with the way things are going already.
We used Thumbtack to get quotes on dog training and were very impressed with the process and how responsive Hunter Canine was. Andrew answered all of our questions, was super easy going and really stood out from the rest of the trainers we interviewed. We chose in-home training for our 15-week-old puppy because my husband and I had never had a dog before and were clueless. We could not believe how quickly Andrew taught Henri to walk on the leash and to be a good boy in his crate! Andrew was calm, patient and very nice - we can't wait until our next training session with Andrew and highly recommend Hunter Canine.
She took care of our two dogs while we had a last minute over 2 night trip. She did not stay at our house but made the drive twice daily to feed, walk, and play with them. Mary is very personable and I can tell she loves animals. Our dogs adored her and we will definitely be calling her in the future.
Renee's classes were so relaxed and fun. We got a new puppy and this was the first time I'd ever gone to dog training classes. Renee explains how a dog thinks and learns. Teaching them new things is easier than I though it would be. You do need time and patience. I wish I would have done it with our previous dogs. Thanks Renee!
First impression was great! Cheri was early for our appt, and took the time to get to know our puppy Kirby. We had a great first training hour!
I'm a first time dog owner and really had no idea what I was doing. We found Brandy on Thumbtack site and we decided to give it a shot. Max was already 7 months old so we had no idea what she would know so the idea of obedience training sounded wonderful. Brandy definitely taught the basics as well as the other things that we wanted with our dog. Brandy also talked through issues we've had, given great advice and tips and Working with Max on them has definitely made a huge difference. Max has learnt some amazing behaviors. He can sit, come, sleep and walk loosely on a leash. Our bond with our puppy is incredible and we owe a lot to Brandy for helping me overcome my fear of dogs. I recommend her for owners with dogs of any age. Brandy came to our house and totally understood my dog's dilemmas. She taught positive training techniques that actually worked! She helped us prevent Max from resource guarding and regain order in the house.
People comment on my well behaved and obedient dogs - it is because of training from Waggin' Train. Waggin Train helped me train my dogs based on my lifestyle and needs and my dogs' personality. Waggin' Train also helped me introduce an adopted dog into my home. Amazing results - the new dog is quickly learning and my other dog is loving her new sister quicker than I expected. Thanks Waggin' Train!
Madison is awesome she is a real professional she is polite good with dogs and there human counter parts I would recommend her to anyone that has puppy issues in a heartbeat.
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.
Laura is absolutely GREAT!!! Our dogs LOVE her! Laura is always on time, is always positive and has great energy! Laura truly LOVES dogs and LOVES what she does!!!😊
So far my dog loved Brandon, and in my consultation I am applying what I saw him do with my dog, and its working. Looking forward to the real training, for me and my pup!
I know owning a pet is a big responsibility but there's just to many animals that are not being cared for and left to fend for themselves so if I can help in any way and keep current pet owners less stressed by providing affordable care, I'm willing to do so. Maybe your looking to get your pet some exercise during the day or possibly need someone to distribute their medication during an upcoming trip to or just provide them with some extra affection while your hard at work. Whatever it is I'm open as long as the pet and its owner will benefit.
I go out of my way to help ensure the animals are well taken care of, above and beyond.
I love animals. I am great with them. I love walking animals so they will get good excersise. I am super friendly, loving and caring.
