  • Michelle Jackson, Dog Trainer

    (2 reviews)

    Every dog has his or her own personality and behaviors. Some are shy, some are full of themselves, some are energetic, some are couch potatoes, some are submissive and afraid, and some are overly dominant and a handful. During the training session, I consider factors such as your dog's temperament, breed, age, sex, general health, history, and drive. This information helps me to customize the session to address your particular dog's behavior concerns. Not only am I helping train your dog; most importantly, I am also training you to train your dog. Proper handling techniques make dog training much easier!

  • Reston Dog Trainer

    (1 reviews)

    Obedience training is fun and rewarding for you and your dog. It can enrich your relationship and make living together more enjoyable. A well-trained dog is more confident and can more safely be allowed a greater amount of freedom than an untrained one. Basic formal obedience training includes heeling on- and off-leash, sitting, laying down and calling back as well as appropriate reaction to normal situations involving crowds of people, strange noises, joggers, cars, other dogs, etc. I focus on teaching your dog to obey you, walk on a leash without pulling, heel, sit, stay, lay down, and come on "recall" command. I do not use any electronic devices such as electronic collars, e-collars, shock collars or prongs. Dogs are sensitive creatures, and it is very easy to break their spirit through the use of negative correction or improper training tools. I support positive training techniques using treats and praise. I advocate more frequent short trainings in order to accomplish your goals and respect your pet. Dogs I have trained for obedience, tracking and protection have passed exams such as BH, FH1, FH2, SCHH1, and IPO. I have been a member of several European Obedience Clubs and German Shepherd Association including the Czech Rescue Brigade. If you are interested, please send me an email, and I will be happy to answer any of your questions or set up a meeting. Thank you, and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I just can't get enough of them. I'm looking to earn some extra income while working at the kennel and also putting myself through school, so every little bit helps.

  • Andrew's Dog Walking

    Growing up, I had a Labrador Retriever that I personally trained, groomed, and looked after. As time went by, I got another dog, a miniature Schnauzer Chihuahua, whom I also cared for. My experiences with my own pets led me to being able to care for others pets. I am a trusted pet care provider because I am able to work with many breeds, and I care for others' pets like I would care for my own. I understand the importance of a pet in an individual's or a family's life and respect the bond between the pet and the owner. The care I provide allows for the pets to maintain their health (or aid in the increase of their health) and be taken care of. I love playing, walking, training, and grooming dogs, and I hope to work with you and your pet!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Spot On Obedience Training

(8 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I absolutely love the joy I get from helping my human and canine customers to have the best possible relationship with each other and the world. I also love teaching clients about working with their dogs in an effective way that encourages communication and obedience.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was in corporate America for most of my working life. In 2004, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (cancer). After the treatment was completed, I started changing many things in my life including my occupational path. For the first time, I was doing what I really loved which is working with animals. My pet sitting service company has been operating for several years already when clients started asking me about dog training. I found out that I had a pretty good instinct in resolving pet behavior issues.
