Very thorough, patient, and reliable training ! Plenty of demonstrating with your dog and then when you are trying it yourself, very detailed coaching as to just what you should be doing. The trainer exhibited vast knowledge regarding dogs and your animal specifically. I really appreciated all the suggestions which went beyond the lesson of the day. I felt Tom really loves dogs and wants the best for them; the concern for their well being was evident. I certainly felt I got excellent value for this training . Cecilia
I met Nate at a local park while walking my dog, Otis. The one thing that caught my eye immediately was that he was walking effortlessly with 5 dogs, most of them were not on a leash and staying within a foot or two from his side. I have had many dogs in my life, taking each one through obedience training but nothing ever stuck. After having tennis elbow surgery years ago from trying to teach my Mastiff mix to heal, I called a popular training franchise that used small "bags" to throw at the animal when they were misbehaving. Needless to say that didn't work. Years later I moved to Arizona and that's when I met Nate. He came to my house the first session to assess Otis' behavior, the environment and my approach to training. We had a very long discussion on canine behaviors. From there Nate gave me a several things to work on with Otis. The results after one month were amazing. Each session we had after that was tailored to what Otis and I needed to work on; totally personalized training to our needs and behavior issues. Nate approaches training with a different approach than standard obedience schools. He addresses canine behaviors and helps you understand those behaviors by explaining where they are coming from, and how to work towards correcting them. I now for the first time in my life have a happy and calm animal that actually listens to me! The coaching I received from Nate not only helped shape Otis but also gave me more confidence in being the pack leader. I have also boarded Otis with Nate after having a couple training sessions. When I picked Otis up he was calm, happy and adjusted. Something you rarely find. I recently accepted a new job that is a very long commute. Nate graciously offered to help me by boarding Otis during the day so he is not left alone for long days. Nate has a genuine passion for animals and lives out this passion. I am grateful to have met Nate. He has changed the relationship I have with my canine companion. I am often complimented on Otis' behavior and have been happy to refer them to Nate. That speaks for itself!
Diane did a perfect job for us. She stayed at our place for three nights and stayed with our pets. She came days earlier to meet the animals and they loved her so I knew it was a good match. She was easy to communicate with and sent me update texts messages throughout my time away as I had requested. I would recommend her for any job. Thank you Diane for doing such a great job for us. We will definitely use you to help us again.
We have 2 dogs and a cat who needed care while we were out of town for a wedding. Our cat needs two medications, twice daily once being an insulin shot and the other being an oral medication. After speaking with Rachael we chose AZ Mama Bear Pet Care because they have experience with administering those types of medications. They did a great job. The pets seemed happy and well taken care of. We even got photos sent to us while we were away. We will definitely call them again if we need a pet sitter.
My husband and I found out late that we needed a petsitter for the Christmas weekend. Leslie found me on Thumbtack, met with me the next day and started petsitting the day after that. I came home to happy animals and a clean house. I feel very lucky to have found a petsitter like Leslie on such short notice, and my dogs and cat were lucky to have such an animal person to take care of them. Thank you!
Leslie groomed both my springer spaniels today. They look amazing. It is the best grooming they have ever received and they are 12 years old. Leslie is an outstanding groomer, she is super sweet and she has an excellent way with animals. I could not recommend anyone as high as her and I am a very picky person. Thanks Leslie!
Malinda's day care facilities have made all the difference in the world in turning our now 1 year old Beagle "Gabby" into a social butterfly. She loves playing and spending time with her 4 legged friends there. It has also worked out very well boarding Gabby at Malinda's because she associates going there with fun. And who wouldn't like the spacious private suites? We have a new found freedom because of Malinda's and really appreciate the TLC provided by the staff there. We would recommend them to anyone who loves their animals as their kids!
I am very greatful that I have found Premium Pet Care. They walk my golden retriever every day I am at work and I feel so much better that I know my dog is not alone the 8 to 10 hours a day I am away. The staff at Premium Pet Care takes great care of Chaser and they always let me know of any changes or concerns in my dogs health. Also, I travel frequently and use to take my dog to Pet Smart Hotel which I never really was comfortable with especially after the last time when Chaser (my dog) came back with a bad cough that required medical attention. Now I have Premium Pet Care stay overnight with my dog and cats at my house which is great for me since I know my animals love Bri and her staff and I do not have to worry about them when I am going for days. Thanks Premium Pet Care!!!
I went to take a tour of the school prior to having my training and I was very happy with how the staff treated me. Very friendly and helpful. Answered all my questions and was completely honest. And I think hats very important when it comes to working with animals. The facility was organized and clean. Which is awesome for me since I will also be boarding my pups there in the near future! I can't wait to start my training!! Thank you!
Naseem was a godsend to me when I needed her in an emergency! She picked up and delivered my precious girl. She is very good w/ animals and my cat was quite at home and comfortable with her. I highly recommend Naseem she is also a very sweet girl.
I booked with Samantha through DogVacay and have used her regularly. From the time she responded to my message, to the meet and greet, and all through each stay my dog has had with her she has kept us informed and happy. My dog always comes home happy and worn out! She has two fantastic dogs, they are super friendly and my dog has a blast with them. Her puppy is a ball of energy and can keep up with my crazy girl! Samantha was even available to me when I had last minute travel plans over memorial day weekend, which was awesome because I know how busy she was that weekend! I will use her every time I need to as long as she is available.
I've been taking my dogs to Sherry's for grooming, daycare and boarding 15 years. We are always happy. Michelle is a wonderful groomer. Great service, and reasonably priced.
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.
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.
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.
We offer complete professional grooming for all breeds of dogs and cats at our clinic. Certain breeds especially those with long hair that mats easily may need assistance keeping themselves clean. Animals that are older or have physical disabilities may also benefit from our grooming services. If your pet is having trouble taking care of regular grooming, it can be a sign of an underlying health issue. Be sure to mention this when you schedule an appointment. You can also call us anytime to discuss your concerns. During your pets' grooming session, he or she will receive a bath in specially formulated shampoo tailored to his or her individual needs as well as a haircut of your choice, a nail trim, and ear cleaning. We will also check and clean your pet's eyes, paws, and pads. We know how to keep your pet calm and comfortable during grooming, so if a bath or nail trim is normally stressful, you can let us take care of those responsibilities so you and your pet can relax. Besides just making your pet look and smell good, grooming provides health benefits. Regular brushing helps remove dead hair, mats, and dirt and distributes natural oils throughout the fur, keeping the coat clean and healthy. Trimming hair around the face, ears, paw pads, and other areas can help prevent infections and irritation and keep debris from accumulating. Trimming nails can prevent joint pain, stiffness, and chiropractic problems. In addition to providing grooming services, we can teach you techniques to help keep your pet well-groomed. Feel free to ask for a product recommendation or browse our pet-safe shampoos, conditioners, and other grooming products in our reception area.
I love animals. I grew up with dogs. I have two cats. I also have two dogs. Animals are of utmost importance to me!
I have the experience of training many different species of animals. I believe there are many different ways to train one thing, you just have to figure out what works best for the animal and the trainer.
I love animals. I work as a fast food crew member at the moment but would love to quit and work full-time around animals. I thought that I would give the dog walking a try since I love to walk, be outside and be around animals. I had dogs and cats my whole life, and I think that they're awesome.
I am very experienced in taking care of all kinds of animals, even reptiles. I do dog walking, feeding and providing fresh water everyday. If they need medication, I can do that as well. I can also provide play time, giving them plenty of love and attention. Anything you need done for your pet, I'm your girl!
