Pete was great with my dog. He was on time and extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior.
Courtney is one heck of an amazing trainer! She is not only wonderful with dogs, but she also has an incredible talent for working with people, too. She will help you to understand your dog's behaviors and she emphasizes fixing problematic behaviors instead of just managing them. I can't recommend her enough for anything from puppy training to advanced obedience and fear-based behaviors.
Our first training session was Wonderful! Logan was professional, informative and extremely compassionate, calm and helpful. After listening to our "story," issues and concerns about our dog's behavior, and then observing us together, he provided easy and clear instructions on how to make life more enjoyable for us And our pet. We cannot wait for the next session!
Tammy is a wonderful dog trainer! I have had my dog for three years now. In the first year of adopting my dog from rescue center; he had a lot of anxiety and bark non- stop. In about seven months with working with the techniques Tammy would suggest he no longer barks when I'm not home. I encourage and recommend Tammy as your dog trainer . She has a lot of knowledge on the psychology of dog behavior , and you will see your dog have major improvements.
I recently adopted two mature, medium-sized dogs from Southern California. After hearing lots of horror stories from the previous owner regarding how they behaved, I was nervous about them being a good fit. After a chance meeting with Les in a parking lot, I called to see if he would help me with assessing their behavior and work on socializing them with other dogs. I couldn't be happier with the results. His guidance lead ME to higher levels of confidence which has lead to our being relaxed and confident with having them out in public settings as well as with the neighborhood dogs and children.
John is very knowledgeable about the psychology of dogs and he came to our house to show us how to deal with the specific problems we were having at home. Taking our dog out to another trainer was not addressing our specific behavior problems at home. John is very nice and caring of our dog and we have been very happy with his dog training. He has given us the tools that we need to work on our dogs behavior and let our dog be an active member of our family.
Susan is a true lover of dogs as well as taking her career seriously and keeping abreast of all the most up to date information on dog health. I feel Susan cares for my Ariel as if she was her own and that gives me great peace of mind.
Very knowledgeable about dog behavior quickly identified the problems with our dog. Highly recommend.
Erika takes excellent care of my cats. She always sends pictures or videos and status updates when she is watching them. They seem happier and calmer when I get home than they have when I used other cat sitters. She follows care instructions well, is very easy to schedule with and her rates are competitive. She's clearly an animal lover!
Didi listens attentively to our concerns about our dog's behavior. She teaches in a constructive, easily understood manor by both our dog and us. You can see Didi's genuine interest in helping our dog learn correct behavior and us learning how to guide her. We have had our consultation and one training session so far, We feel confident that we chose the best Trainer/Behaviorist to help us achieve the results we want.
Holly was excellent with our two dogs. She explained her dog training approach clearly and quickly improved our dog's behavior and explained what we as owners should do going forward. In a space of a day, she performed miracles. She is extremely responsive and very caring. I would highly recommend her!
Christina had an affinity for animals and they love her. Our pup looks forward to her walks, kisses, and love. Thank you for taking care of our fur baby as if he was your own!
Pleasant personality. Kelly showed us a few behavior issue techniques in her 1st $20 consultation. Would highly recommend her. We hired her due to a fair price and knowledge.
Krystal is absolutely amazing. I knew she as a great fit right from our initial communication and confirmed during our first meeting and subsequent visits. She has a true love for animals and it show in her work. I'll definitely be contacting Krystal again for future pet sitting needs.
Phoebe is an animal behavior miracle worker and the best in the industry as far as I m concerned! I cannot say enough good things about working with her! In fact, I don t think words could do justice to how highly I regard her and how positively impact she has been to my life and my family (dog-children included, of course!)! I have two German Shepherd Dogs who are the loves of my life, but they can certainly be a handful without proper training, reinforcement and care. When I first met Phoebe, I only had my female GSD, Ranger, who was about 1yr old at the time and she owned me , so to speak (completely my fault). Thankfully, Phoebe was able to correct some of Ranger s bad behavior s (again, my fault), train me on being a good leader, and get her basic obedience in check, all while maintaining Ranger s personality and attitude . Soon after Phoebe began working with Ranger, my family decided to get a second GSD, Stryker. This time, we worked with Phoebe throughout the entire process of obtaining a new dog, i.e., selecting the right breeder; puppy testing to choose a puppy with the best temperament for my family; selecting a great veterinarian; proper nutrition and supplements; preventing injuries; choosing safe toys; socializing the new puppy; and, introducing the new puppy to the family and to my other dog, Ranger. Once Stryker was old enough, Phoebe trained him extensively and he is now just about the perfect dog, a gentle giant! I now get compliments almost daily on the behavior of my dogs during walks, but to be completely honest, if my dogs were not as well-trained, I probably wouldn't be able to walk them at all. Finally, to top it all off, Phoebe is just a great human being with a work ethic like no other. She has stayed in my home several times with my dogs for extended periods of time and not only have I always returned to clean, better-behaved dogs, but also to an immaculate house! I could go on forever. If anyone is on the fence about hiring her, feel free to call or email me. Choosing Phoebe to work with your beloved dogs will be one of the wisest decisions you make for both your dogs and your family!
Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.
Rhonda is fabulous! She has been taking care of our babies for several years now and she is very reliable, trustworthy and so sweet and gentle with them. She is super knowledgeable with animals and I feel confident when my animals are in her care. I highly recommend Rhonda!
Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.
Stoakly, had issues with leash pulling, attentiveness and general obedience. After working with Keynoe with his 3 week transformative program, Stoakly is a completely different dog! Listens to basic commands when we walk and is so much calmer. We even had the opportunity to hang out with other dogs at the local park - the dogs got along so well and Keynoe managed all their behaviors at once. I was really impressed by how easy Keynoe is to work with, his professionalism and flexibility when working with me and Stoakly 1:1. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with training and even if you just want a fun and reliable friend for your dog.
