Great Experience! Fast response and appointment. Our new nine month old shelter rescue refused to walk on a leash was even scared of the leash/collar. He would sit down and refuse to move. We travel a lot so leash training is imperative when staying in hotels! Bruce's training skills are exceptional, whether the training is for the dog or myself lol...it worked! He had my little puppy walking on a leash/wearing the collar within one session.. this is after one month of me trying to train him myself. Every day since he's been walking with a collar and a leash with no problems.... of course he still get scared here and there of other digs or people but is doing so well! We felt that Bruce's skillful and gentle approach really helped our little Kingston. Highly recommend. Thanks Bruce!

The man that I had a consultation with was very fast speaking and it was hard to understand everything that was being offered. I am not sure what the average price is for dog training but the prices seemed very high for so few visits. The advertised price was not what I was quoted online, it was substantially higher. The business wanted payment before receiving services which I thought was a little odd. Overall, I trust that the company will follow through with their promises and given their historical ratings, I decided to move forward with the process.

I have to be honest, I am a veteran with PTSD which comes accompanied with a lot of anxiety so my trust level is below ground level, I take it to the extreme when new people come around by passively interrogating them. Anita is AWESOME!!! not only was Airo taken care of PERFECTLY but she even did some training with him and now our little guy knows the command (Sit) and (Down) and he doesnt jump all over us and the kids anymore. She did this training in 8 hours time, I felt so relieved when I came home and seen she also organized his area better for play and activity and gave him some leash training. I wont use anybody else, Anita is not just a sitter for us, she is now our friend!!! Her Southern hospitality, open and caring personality and her way with animals is phenomenal, I am so glad I went with her... Please if you are looking for anyone Anita is IT!!! Just dont use her too much because we need her too ;)

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!

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.

Kim Thomas certainly puts you and your dog at ease the minute you meet her. Our Shih Tzu attended her Group Training and an additional Advanced Training course. As a result, we have a well mannered and behaved dog that obeys commands anywhere we go. She was also great in teaching us how to be better dog parents. I HIGHLY recommend her for training your dog. You will get great results.

Kim did an outstanding job with our Rottweiler puppy. She was very thorough and we started seeing the transformation with our dog by the 2nd lesson. Her follow up with us was excellent. I highly recommend Kim to anyone that needs dog training.

I was in search of a trainer for weeks; I didn't want group classes or to leave my dog somewhere for weeks for someone else to train. I really wanted someone to come to my home and train my husband and I on managing our Springer Spaniel puppy. We hit the jackpot when we were referred to Elisa Levenbaum, Fit Dog Training. Our first meeting she said "I'm here to help break his bad habits but not break his spirit" and she has done just that. She made the lessons personalized to what we wanted to work on. Elisa, has shown us how to work with Jax and break some habits and teach him commands that he easily obeys and enjoys. She is always available for questions and has some really great advise in all areas of dog ownership. We are 6 lessons into an 8 lesson package and Jax is doing fabulous. I would highly recommend Elisa to anyone with any aged dog. Our Jax loves her and so do we!

Thank goodness for Fit Dog Training. Elisa came to our home, our girls immediately took to her. She is the perfect balance of loving caregiver and trainer. Of course, the training was mostly for us parents but once we were up to speed on how to effectively train the girls the entire home became calm and balanced. The girls were happier than ever. They now understood commands and behavior expectations while in the house. People always ask how I got my girls to be so well behaved. Since then we have added two boxers to the home (and we thought the pitbulls were energetic) Elisa never fails with her guidance and knowledge with a wide variety of puppy problems and personalities. You could not ask for a better or more loving person to work with your furry ones. I recommend Elisa constantly for dog training and we continue to enjoy working with her to this day!

Jessica is awesome! Within an hour long session she was able to effectively help me understand what my dog needs training wise, as well as demonstrated several techniques that worked instantaneously. She helped me set up a good plan and I am very excited for future sessions. Also, she emails you notes after each session which is so great, especially if you are detail oriented like myself. I will be recommending her to everyone!

Too bad you only offer 5 stars for your rating as my experience with Cherene and Wizedogs was so much more! When Franklin found me last year, he was pretty beat up, had been on the streets for at least 6 months! After 9 months, we realized that our love was not enough! He was pretty much limited to his pinned in area and yard. The minute he came into the house, he would have a potty melt down. We found Cherene on Thumbtack and she took him in and now we have a housebroken dog, who comes when called, sits on command AND shakes hands, heels when he walks on leash next to me and is now a big part of our family! I highly recommend Cherene for your dog training and boarding! She is definitely dog's best friend! Best call I ever made!!!

Cherene and her dog, Jäger, visited our dog at our house and was very thorough. The day care service at hers was great. Could tell our dog had any great time and wasn't crated but was able to play and be relaxed. Would recommend Oh My Dog and plan on being a regular.

This was the perfect choice for boarding and training my puppy. Cherene was fantastic at keeping me posted how my puppy was doing daily and gave me all the information I needed to continue the training when I returned. This is a 1st class business!

Prior to meeting Renee, I had dropped out of multiple training classes sponsored by other private trainers because my dog and I weren't confident about our work outside of the classroom. We successfully completed Renee's Basic Obedience class and went on to take her Class in the Park to strengthen the skills we learned with added distractions of people, bicycles, little league games etc. Her ability to lead the class in a relaxed manner and her willingness to provide support between classes was the key to our success. Her extensive experience allows her to provide alternative solutions in situations where a particular dog isn't responding to an exercise. She has knowledge of a multitude of dog breeds and knows some of the training challenges that can come up with certain breeds. One of my issues was walking my 100 lb. lab without being pulled all over the neighborhood. After using Renee's training methods, not only do I now enjoy walking my dog, but I have actually had people stop me and ask how I was able to get my dog to walk so well on a leash!

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!

We have loved our dog training experience with Star. She has a special way with animals, both nurturing and authoritative. She is punctual and pleasant. She taught us how to address crate training, potty training, door behavior, walking on a leash, digging, and biting. She was 100% available by phone and text during the week if we had any questions. When our puppy "graduated" from beginning puppy training, she was awarded with a personalized certificate and treats, which shows how much she loves her job and her "students." We look forward to working with Star in the future for more advanced puppy training.

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.

I've used Two Dogs Dancing for overnight stays at my home with my pack of very boisterous corgis, Pom and rat terrier and one horse. We have an older corgi with a brain tumor and are not comfortable leaving him unattended for extended periods of time. This summer we scheduled a 10 day over seas vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that all our pets would be well care for. We received daily updates and pictures. All our pets were properly pampered while we were gone including our horse, who doesn't understand why I don't provide the yummy carrots like Mary does. Our dogs are over joyed when they see Mary and Brandy outside of pet sitting. Our home was clean and in great condition when we returned and we were pleasantly surprised by a plate of freshly baked cookies.

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.

We used Bee Professional Pet Services for the first time and we were not disappointed!! The Services are fairly priced and highly personalized. She even has a 25 minute Dog walk for a cheeper price when adding to daily visits. Brin is also highly trained; her skills were showing as soon as she entered our home. We have 2 pitbull mixes and 3 cats. We've received daily check-in messages and pictures. Brin also left us with a daily logged notebook and folder that stays witg us for next time. Every special request was made! She even showed up 10 minutes early! I highly recommend Bee Professional Pet Services

When our original house sitter moved out of town I was very nervous about finding someone new. I have a Doberman Pinscher who is high energy but Bri was great with him and they hit it off right away! She stayed in our house while we went out of town for a week. During her stay, she did some training with him and sent us texts and pictures to ease our minds! She also cared for our cat and watered our plants. I felt very comfortable leaving our fur babies in her care and when we came back our house was super clean and animals were happy!! I highly recommend her and we are definitely using her again!! :)
