My dog Tristan, a standard poodle, is getting elderly and has arthritis with very bad weakness in his back legs so it has gotten to the point that taking him to a groomer is too hard on him and more dangerous of him getting hurt. I am so thankful I found Desiree who does in-home groom visits where Tristan can be comfortable, not have to stand so long and can now even lay down in the comfort of my home and get groomed. Desiree was on time, she took time to let Tristan warm up to her, she was so gentle and has the experience to gently handle my elderly dog, she cleaned up after, she was so friendly and easy to talk to and Tristan looked wonderful afterwards! She even helped put a name to a possible health problem just from hearing Tristan cough so will ask my vet about it. I am so happy to have found Desiree and she has gained a permanent customer.
I received many responses from my inquiry for a dog trainer on Thumbtack. Kevin was the first to actually call me. We chatted about my needs and concerns and immediately felt I was making the right decision in selecting him. I received so many great tips and my little Lola and I have a better relationship because of it. I now know how to handle certain situations and it's not as big of a deal as I thought it would be. Since my dog is 14 weeks old, I decided to have Kevin come back once a week for 4 weeks so he could assess our progress and help us through the next stage. I would highly recommend Kevin for your dog training needs. Not only is he helping me with training, he's also assessed her food intake, food quality and gave me some additional tips on my crate training efforts.
Les is fantastic! He is truly dedicated and passionate about the services he provides. Not only is he a great trainer and dog walker companion, his pet delivery service is perfect for anyone in need of a drop off or pick up that just doesn't work in your schedule. I highly recommend giving him a shot, you will NOT be disappointed!
I have known Tierney since 2014 and I am still blown away by her knowledge and skill in dog training/behavior. In June of 2015, I I purchased a 3 year old female Belgian Malinois named Vue that Tierney had put foundations on. This was my first working dog and Tierney did a great job answering all my questions and educating me on the breed as well as making sure that this dog was going to be a good fit for me. Vue was given to me with a foundation in protection work, sport work, nose work, and extremely solid obedience work. Two years with Vue and I can tell you that this is the best dog I have ever had! We have such a strong bond and work perfect together. I would not be where I am with Vue if it wasn't for the skills that Tierney had developed with her. Tierney has been there every step of the way for Vue and I. She has always checked up on us and made sure everything was going good. I know I can always contact her with even the most absurd dog training questions and she always gives me an honest and helpful answer. She continues to help me expand Vue's potential. I appreciate how Tierney uses a wide variety of training methods to create one that is appropriate for the dog and trainer she is working with. She is a problem solver and looks at the big picture when evaluating certain behaviors in a dog. Tierney develops a strong relationship with her clients and dogs she works with. Thanks Tierney!
I've been working with Faith since getting my puppy this year and it has been excellent! Training is always a work in progress of course but my dog has benefited so much from training with her! We've been able to work on basic obedience, move onto advanced skills and work on issues specific to my dog. I frequently get compliments about how well behaved my dog is. I would highly recommend Faith to anyonewho is in need of a dog trainer. She is wonderful and a wealth of knowledge & expertise!
Great experience. Very excited about getting my dog trained.
WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.
We were very pleased with Jenni. She was very informative and gave us plenty of effective advise. She took our unruly puppy for training and 5 weeks later returned to us a very pleasant obedient and enjoyable dog. It is obvious that her main concern is the care of our pets. We are forever grateful. Thank you Jenni.
Kevin gave us an amazing introductory lesson, without the pressure of committing to future lessons. He stayed a long time and worked with two of our dogs although we only set up to work with one. Looking forward to learning a great deal more from him!
Audrey is the best. Very professional, great communication, and great doggy care! If you are are in need of a pet sitter, don't hesitate to give her a call. My dogs are like my children and I trust her with them completely!
Really competent, conscientious pet sitter. One of the few that I trust with my dogs.
I am an experienced animal sitter/walker. I have eight years of animal nurse experience. I can also give medications if needed. I will drive to your home. I believe fur babies do best in their own home. I have great references that are available upon request.
I can and have walked dogs professionally. Walking is great for everyone. I have also been a foster parent for many animals, including Katrina dogs, cats and horses.
I am an animal lover especially for dogs. I had an all American bulldog. He got up to 143 lbs. So, I am very capable of handling a big pup. I chose to do this because I specialize in taking care of animals on a daily basis. If you request me to walk/care for your dog, it would be a great pleasure!
We stand out because we are doing it for the love of animals and to teach responsibility to the next generation.
At all about dog obedience we work with our clients and their dog to make a unbreakable bond with each other so that the dog becomes part of the family instead of a pain to deal with:) our training program is fun and family friendly
I provide walking, sitting and any special care service for dogs. I will travel to your destination. I love animals. I have two dogs of my own!
I have lots of experience with pet sitting, feeding, and walking. I have 3 small dogs of my own; I love animals! References are available.
I am a Brentwood based dog walker. I started walking dogs about 4 years ago when I began in high school for a part-time job.
I do most jobs, including pets from large to small. Whether it is a mid-day or alternating day walks to full vacations, I have the experience, including a veterinary medicine degree and do injections and recovery. I work with keeping your training in place and can add to what you are already doing. I work well with seniors and behavioral needs. I am an animal lover, and your pets' needs come first before anything else. Please check my website to read about my skills, education and praises from clients.
When I walk with animals, either in the heat of summer or dead of winter, I truly enjoy myself. I like getting to know the owners and the animals I meet to create a more positive, friendly experience.
