Dog training type
It has been a pleasure to work with Kim. Our dogs are different already and we are not done with the training. She has helped us a lot with getting our dogs to obey.Dec 23, 2019VerifiedI love your Dog Pet Services's reply
Marc, thank you. I can see from what they have learned so far that they will be wonderful members of the family. I am looking forward to our Petsmart and Starbucks outings and see them enjoy life outside of their home life. They are great girls and welcome to the training family.
We had one visit but Kim provided a wealth of information that I was able to immediately use. This one visit has already provided needed change. I plan on contacting Kim again once I am physically able to work with my dog to complete the training.Jan 30, 2020Verified
We are glad we found Kim through Thumbtack. She was not hesitant to give our pups extra training as needed to get them to the graduation standard. We look forward to continuing to work with her as our 2 young dogs continue their journey of life-long learning.Aug 30, 2019VerifiedI love your Dog Pet Services's reply
Thank you David. I appreciate this review. I miss them already 😊 Keep up the good work and I will see you in a couple of weeks for the first follow up.
Kim is absolutely amazing! She started working with our stubborn beautiful Saint Bernard puppy and is honestly a god send! Not only has Kim upheld her contract by teaching everything she listed Buddha would learn but also worked with our other dog to show us how to train the 2 together. She went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations! Thank you Kim for everything we will definitely be scheduling her for the advanced class when we are ready!

Thank you Alison. The pleasure is mine, Cashew is a spunky and smart puppy. She told me yesterday that she is ready for anything we can teach her.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing has been the same since 2000. I have set prices for my courses, it doesn't depend on the house you live in or what area you are in. It's more important to train dogs then lose the opportunities. And PLEASE, never give a review for prompt response, that has nothing to do with how they work. And they end up with a five star rating for talking and not working.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to come meet if you like but typically I start the training with what you want most out of the training besides the obedience and problem solving. Example: One of my clients has MS and the most important thing to her was heeling with her 50 pound puppy at that time. We accomplished that first off and added all aspects of the training. He is a valued member of the family and travels with her daily. The first lesson is mainly starting out with the problem solving and seeing what I need to supply for the training.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My love for dogs.
