We worked with Beth for 2 sessions and in that short amount of time, she provided the most beneficial tools. One is the "gentle leader." If you have big strong dogs this is a must. In addition to keeping them in control on walks these help so much to overall calm the dogs. I feel comfortable and confident now walking my 2, 100lb plus dogs together, by myself. Beth is courteous, communicative and timely. Our dogs are still not perfect Angels, and we need to continue to be consistent in our training, but I feel we have the skill set to get them there. Beth didn't try to sell us on the need for a huge package of training sessions. We know and understand that it is up to us to remain diligent with our dogs. Thank you so much Beth and if Bill and I need a refresher I will be in touch😀 Also Thumbtack is how I found Beth what a great resource. I was able to read through reviews of 7 other dog trainer's profiles and find what was a great fit for us. Thank you
Paula is an amazing dog trainer! She has provided me with so much new and relevant information that has been crucial in helping me with my foster dog. Thanks to her tips and her information on dog behavior, I have had great success with my dog's crate training and her behavior towards guests at the door. I highly recommend Paula to anyone who is in need to of help. She is more than a "teach them to sit" type of trainer -- she understands dog behavior and carefully explains how humans can work with dogs to give them skills to succeed.
Mel is a terrific and patient dog trainer. She trains the owners how to speak to the dogs to get the best results through positive reinforcement. We went back for a higher level class, and were very happy to see how quickly our dog, Max, was able to learn new commands and become calmer!
I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.
My puppy, clementine, loves spending the day with dog wild. Their professionalism and compassion for dogs shows in everything they do. I recommend asking about the off leash pack adventure if you need dog walking services. Your dog will come back tired, socialized, and happy. They even send awesome photo updates!!
I have a bad back and a weak core and I started to work with Maggie once a week. Once I started working with her, the constant pain I had in my back was slowly being diminshed, and my core started to get stronger than it has been in years. As a result of her work, I was able to do this canoe race and finish higher than I have ever finished before. She is a great trainer that will address whatever needs you have for whatever fitness level you want to achieve.
Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.
Just finishing my puppy training and couldn’t be happier with the results. My pup responded well to the positive training techniques. Highly recommend.
We had a 17 month puppy that was out of control. Well in fact he was in control of our family. The last straw was me tackling him in the front yard to keep him from running out of the house again. We hired Peter Levy to help us with this adorable wonderful stubborn puppy. Within minutes of Peter walking into the house, he looked at our puppy and gave him some type of signal or vibe that he was alpha. From that point on, our puppy changed. He became calmer and more attentive. Peter taught us how to gain control over our puppy and get him to behave better. We learned from him how to be above the puppy in the pecking order. His instructions were very insightful and made so much sense when you realize how pack animals work. He has an instant connection with a dog, and is able to help us get the good behaviors that we need from our dog. We highly recommend Peter as a dog trainer. He is amazing!!!
Tracy is wonderful and listens to our needs. She was able to answer all of my concerns being a new puppy owner which decreased the anxiety that comes with having no puppy experience. She uses positive reinforcement with her training.
I am so excited I found Vivien. My dog loves her and I feel so much more relaxed knowing she is in great, capable loving hands.
I have been petsitting for a little over 3 years now and currently foster my own American Bulldog/ Pitbull mix. I have an experience with dogs over 5 years. Overall, I hope to make pet care not only affordable but convenient for you and your furry friend.
I have 35 years of experience in dog and horse training. I'm successful because I'm caring, intuitive and instinctive with animals. Contact me and Andre can talk. I can give you many references.
Local dog walker in Poway. Fun, adventurous, and loving. I realize how important our furry friends are to us, most of them being like family. It's important to make sure that they have plenty of exercise throughout the day for them to remain healthy and happy. It's also important for your floors to remain clean of pet waste while you are at work.
I have a natural connection with animals. Ive never actually owned animals as a child until my teenage years. I have a very bold personality and I tend to be very playful and motherly to animals haha.
I love animals. I am great with all dogs, and I have a Jack Russell Terrier named Jack. I am able to provide services on a flexible schedule.
I am an experienced dog handler and trainer. My goal is to provide you with peace of mind when you're away from your pet. I like to use current technology and the use of apps to stay connected with your pets.
I have a soft spot for four-legged fur babies. I have more than 10 years of experience working with dogs. I have a dog of my own. I know how to successfully walk dogs while providing a service with professionalism.
I send pictures to the owners everyday through the phone or email, to relieve them of any worries they may have. I run around the neighborhood, take pets to parks, near beaches. I walk one at a time every three hours.
I would like to help someone with dog walking. I love dogs. For me, it is not a job; it is a pleasure.
