Bruce was extremely helpful for my pup, Bruno, and myself. Bruno has been having aggression issues since I rescued him from the pound a couple months ago. Bruce helped me out when I first adopted Bruno and gave me valuable pointers on how to handle his unusual behavior. When Bruno started exhibiting more aggressive behavior and was not improving, Bruce came back out to help us a second time, free of charge. I am extremely helpful for everything he has taught us and I cannot wait to see improvement with my pup. I would recommend Bruce for everyone, because he not only knows a lot about dogs and their behavior, but he also is a very friendly and engaging trainer. He teaches us how to handle our dogs' behavior so that we can continue to train while he is not present. Bruce showed me that he truly cares about my pup's well-being, as well as my own. He is great!
Tom is very knowledgeable regarding dog behavior and is helping us recall necessary owner habits to let go of for a more successful training of our magnificent mastiff.
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 was fantastic!!! I was very nervous leaving my babies with someone, besides family for the first time and Anita walked me through it. She exceeded every one of my expectations by leaps and bounds. My girls loved her!!! She took them for walks, catered to their special diet needs, gave there medications as needed, did behavior training with my anxiety ridden one and physical therapy with my older one. She left the house cleaner than when she found it and sent me pictures/video updates every day. As nervous as I was her caring and attention to detail helped me get through it. She even wrote down the commands I use with them to keep it the same. My girls loved her from the first time the met her, and they are the true judges!:-) I will certainly use her from now on!! I cant even imagine leaving my girls with anyone else!
My dog Sammie would bark at then jump up at anyone that would come to the door (including my mom with a new hip). Elisa got him to stop that behavior, and even got him to stop going for the trash. I would definitely recommend Elisa to anyone who needs a trainer and a dog lover for their "spirited" pet!
Cat is amazing!!!! She has helped us with multiple dogs. Every time -she has not only trained our dogs but also taught us how to continue getting the good behavior out of our dogs. You can tell she genuinely cares about our dogs. We couldn't have don't it without the help from Cat! I would definitely recommend her! She has become part of our family!
After speaking to Mary, I felt confident that she would take good care of my pet bunny, Geneva. She is VERY knowledgeable about animals and animal health, she seemed gentle and made a connection with Geneva easily. She was also quickly to respond and great about sending updates. I felt safe leaving my keys with her and she went out of her way to return them promptly. I will definitely hire her again in the future!
We are so pleased with Spot On Obedience Training. During our first session we were given tips that have already been implemented and made a huge difference in our interaction with and our dogs' behavior.
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!
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.
Have you ever meet someone for the first time and feel like you have known them your entire life? That was my meeting with Lori today. I am super confident she will take fantastic care of my fuzz faces while I am traveling. Lori simply has a way with animals. My cat Bella who most people only hear about, actually came out of hiding and let Lori pet her. What a pleasant surprise! No more worries about my kids while I am gone. Thank you!
I really like working with Dianne. Her knowledge of dogs and their behavior is outstanding!. Her opinion on what's occurring in a given situation, albeit behavioral or developmental (like a growth stage), is invaluable. The tips she gives on what to do in order to support a happy and healthy person-dog relationship are very useful. I never feel as though our sessions are confined by a time limit, and the support she gives via phone, email, and text is exceptional. When Dianne says call, text, or email at any time with any question or concern, she means it and will quickly respond. I am in awe when I watch her work with my puppy, and I appreciate her patience in watching me 'attempt' to repeat her excellent execution in handling/training. I can see myself working with her throughout my puppy's lifetime, as Dianne's help has been a priceless investment.
Sydney was great with our dogs. We have one older dog and one puppy, both required lots of attention. She made sure the puppy was not in her crate (left alone) for more than 4-5 consecutive hours during the day and took both dogs on walks everyday. She sent us updates and pictures throughout the week she stayed at our house. We've already booked her for our next trip :)
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.
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.
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.
I would absolutely recommend Amy to my friends and family! Amy was extremely friendly and knowledgeable during our training sessions. She offered great feedback and different things I could try to correct some bad behavior. We are definitely on our way to a very well behaved dog!

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.
