Karen is awesome! She spent a lot of time with me, my dog, and my family who all live together understanding what was really going on with my aggressive dog. She gave great tips and recommendations for little things that help establish a clear pack order so that my dog is happy and more relaxed. I have definitely seen an improvement in my dog immediately. I just need to get better about my own consistency with the method and be committed to being a pack leader which is hard sometimes but my dog needs it. She's really great, tons of insight and methods that seem small but make a huge difference in dog language.
I'm so happy I found DeeCee! She gave my dog the love & care he needs & deserves. I went to work & didn't have to worry about him. She took good care of him & im looking forward to bringing my boy back to her when I work!
His great he have so much love and care for our dog since his training my dog I can sleep every night with no worries
We LOVE Cindy! After recently moving back to LA, she’s been the great addition to our family. Our dog, Clarence, leaps when she arrives and has thrived in the routine of being with Cindy and the other dogs Monday through Friday. She sends photos, organizes grooming, and cares deeply about her work. We feel incredibly grateful and trust her completely. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Steve is an incredible, elite master trainer. He holds the key to unlocking all of your dogs' best attributes. He has done wonders for my dogs, and I have witnessed him doing even more for others. There's nothing that this man can't fix about your dog. But, you must be willing to put in the time and do what it takes to maintain. I have two mixed breeds (brother and sister) that have severe separation anxiety, when they weren't near each other. They were completely co dependent on each other, fearful and extremely sensitive to everything around them. They would whine and bark when separated. Steve had them for less than two weeks, and now they have no problem, at all being separated. He taught me how to build their confidence, and help them succeed. Which has made training them in obedience much easier. They now have the will to work, and the desire to learn more. As do I. He has inspired me so much that it has now become my passion, and I am now his apprentice. What I love most about the way that he trains, is that he is very gentle and patient with the dogs. He is by far more concerned with the dogs' well-being than anything else. He can be pretty tough on the owners, but once you come to realize why, you really can't be mad at him. The issues that your dog has, are typically there because of you. Your dog is a mirror of yourself. Once you've accepted that, you can then both change together, building the bond between you and your dog even stronger. But, you must be part of the change in order for it to work. Wendy is my senior master trainer, and I have learned so much already from both of them. They have taught me beginner and advanced obedience, behavior work, tracking, scent detection, how to show in AKC competitions, how to train movie dogs, and much more. Through the skills that I have acquired from them, I am now teaching my own classes and training dogs daily, using the same incredible methods that these amazing dog trainers have taught me. I highly recommend Steve and Wendy, and all of their trainers to anyone who truly cares for their dog.
Angela did a wonderful job looking after our fur kids! We have one dog, two kitties and a foster kitty that she watched over. She walked our dog twice a day, played with the kitties and even brought our mail in! She will send you updates and pictures if you ask her to. I highly recommend her, she did a great job!
Great people. Great service. Our dogs go out on 2 hour socialization hikes or trips to a park, 3 days/wk. And they go for neighborhood walks, 2-3 days/wk. I rest assured that they are getting excercise and are with experienced, knowledgeable, caring people. Even when walking or playing with several dogs, they are aware of each dog's needs. I trust them to drop off, pick up, or feed my dogs when no one is home. Both of my guys get very excited when Theresa or Brad come to the door. They have been a part of our lives for well over a year and we are very grateful.
We are so glad we picked Jenny as our dog pet sitter! She took care of our dog for 4 days while we were traveling. She was very attentive and kind with our boy and was always sending pictures and messages. Which helped us to see how he was doing. One thing that really amazed us is that our dog was trained in portuguese and Jenny learned somethings just so he could understand her better! Our dog was very happy under Jenny's care and that's the most important part for us. We sure recommend her services.
Petra is great and very patient with our dog Tobi that doesn’t get along with our cat but already after 3 lessons is improving and also learning obedience commands!
Susan is not just a loving care taker of my dog, Max and my cat, Sir Purrs A Lot, but I think she's actually an animal whisperer. She is my daily dog-walker and has also house/dog/cat sat for a week at a time on many occasions. I completely trust her and know that my animals are in great care when she is with them. I would recommend her highly.
Golden Day Pet Services is like the Ritz-Carton for Dogs! Michael has the best customer service ever and my dog gets the royal treatment every time he stays the night! My dog Duke is so happy when I drop him off! Michael sends pictures, posts, and updates on Dukes daily activities. I know he is in good hands with Michael and I do not worry about his care when I am out of town. I highly recommend Golden Days Pet Services!!!
I have hired Kayla multiple times to sit my dog whenever I travel. She's very good with my dog. She walks my dog twice a day and stays overnight with my dog as well. She's trust worthy. She's truly animal lover. I am glad I found Kayla. Highly recommend!!
Taking care of my two dogs for a long weekend. She was a blessing. The dogs were happy and well cared for. Only wish she had more time available.
Daniele is amazing. Four years ago there was this little white dog laying in the middle of my intersection. No one could get him & cars were driving around him. I called Daniele and she came over & got him for me. He was the same dog I had seen a year ago. She helped with his anxiety & abandonment issues. Happy turned out to be the sweetest dog. Daniele was so patient with me. Happy was an older dog, passed way Jan.12th. Daniele recently brought me a rescue terrier mix. I recently lost my husband in Aug. I thought maybe this was a mistake, but it wasn't. He is a lively little thing& a challenge. He makes me laugh a lot. Daniele is really, amazing with Biscuit. He thinks everything is a game, terrier and only 2 yrs. old. Daniele can get him to do anything and then she passes it on to me. I don't know what I'd do w/o her. Me & biscuit look forward to our appt. each week. Biscuit can now focus and be still, sit, come, walk on leash w/o pulling. He's becoming quite obedient. She's done all of this in 3wks. She really knows what the pet needs. She even can see what they've been through. This more than training, she has a God given gift.
We used Randi to watch our dog at our house for a two week out of the country vacation. She was great! Texted us when anything came up, kept us apprised of anything going on with our dog, and also took great care of our house. When we returned from our vacation, our house was clean and neat and just the way we had left it. She followed our instructions to a "T in terms of both of our dog and our house. We had trouble getting home and had to return a day later, and she was flexible enough to be willing to stay with our dog one day more. I would highly recommend Randi for anyone looking for a pet sitter and in fact we will be using her again soon. Thank you.
Took care of my puppies very well and stayed overnight with them. My girls love her and her family...
She went above and beyond to make sure we felt at ease leaving our pets in her care. Besides feeding, litterbox cleaning, & playtime with our cats she provided us with daily updates, pictures, & videos. I highly recommend the 3 Lil Sausages Pet Service!
We love Devyn and Vanessa! They have been walking and boarding our dog for almost a year. Very kind, trust worthy, and they love our dog like their own (or at least we think so :) )
George has taken care of our 2 dogs several times and we are so happy and thankful. We always know our dogs are in such good care with George. He spends time with the dogs and doesn't just run in to let them out or feed them and then leave. We very highly recommend George to care for your beloved pets!
We have had an a wonderful experience with Wendy Brookhyser and her team. Our dog was almost 4 years old when we brought him to the facility. We were having issues with aggression towards other dogs and an extremely hard time walking him with a leash. We had dog trainers come to our home and try and help us, but nothing seemed to work or stick for very long. Our good friend told us about Wendy and we decided to give her a try. This was our last attempt to try and help our sweet Aussie before adopting him to another family. Our Chuck did such a fantastic job with Wendy and her staff. When we picked him up, our whole family was pleased with how well he listened to us and walked with us. Our children use to not be able to walk him without a parent because he would dash after other dogs or people on bikes. Now even my 10 year old can walk him. I was reluctant to send my dog away. I had heard stories where the dog came back with a wounded or broken spirit. Chuck came back to us with the same fun loving spirit he had when we dropped him off. If I could do all over again, I wouldn't hesitate this time! The best part about this facility is that they not only train the dog, they train the family. We were instructed to watch a training video at least 8 times before we picked him up. We were told this DVD would help us prepare for our dog's arrival back into our home. The videos helped us learn the commands our dog would be learning at the facility. It has been a life saver! We still watch it once a week to brush up on our skills. They also provide Friday Train Day where they come to your home and pick up your dog for the day. We have taken advantage of this to help give our dog more consistency while we are still improving our skills with him. Chuck is so excited every Friday when he sees Wendy or a staff member. I would and do recommend Wendy to all of my friends that are struggling with obedience. They also provide boarding services. We are so happy with Wendy and her team and will continue to help us if and when we should need it.
Bo went in pulling on the leash and crazy excited when he saw another dog. One hour later he walked out calmly and was completely unphased by other dogs he saw. I've got to keep it up, but Paul got me and Bo back on track!
