I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.
Sarah has been walking our beagle and yorkie for a few weeks now and we couldn't be more pleased. She's clearly an animal lover, is reliable and goes above and beyond what we ask of her. Highly recommend :)
After moving to Long Beach, I was a little concerned about hiring a new dog walker but Becky put my mind at ease. It seems like she genuinely loves my animals and sends me pictures when she's walking my dogs, feeding them and when they snuggle up with her.
INCREDIBLE!!! Cynthia has been walking my dog for 3 months or so and I am SO happy I found her! She sends me little texts when she picks up Daisy and also when she drops her off so I know where she is. They go to different dog parks and walk around and play with other dogs. By the time I get home from work, Daisy is pooped! 😊. Cynthia is reliable, responsible, really knows her business and cares about my dog. More than anything, I TRUST that Daisy is safe (and having fun) while they are together. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!
I was in search of a trainer for my standard Schnauzer who would pull and lunge at other dogs when walking. I could not control the dog due to my tennis elbow. After talking to more than 7 trainers I came across Steve. He went into detail on the phone on how we would address the problem. I had hope! In just two visits I was able to learn what I was doing wrong and correct it. I no longer get frustrated and my dog enjoys walking. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and most of all no more sore arm. Yeah.
Melissa is very accessible. Her and her staff have done an outstanding job with my dogs. I can rest assured my dogs are in great hands when Just Four Paws is walking my little guys.
Excellent service !! Unfortunately my dog just passed away but the owner and one of her employees came by and did a meet and greet before taking care of my dog while I was out of country and they gave him a toy that he kept near by till his last day..
He is very good with my dog. My dog looks forward to seeing him after 2 days. I have learn a lot in 2 days
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!
Kevin and Latoya are amazing! Not only are they both so personable and kind but they go above and beyond to help you solve the challenges you are facing with your dog. Kevin has a lot of amazing stories and testimonials about the worst dog experiences he has seen and how they have been overcome which always kept us hopeful about our rescue. If you think your dog is a lost cause, take them to Kevin. Just know that it isn't all about the trainer, but the consistency that you must keep up as an owner. Our dog was a rescue and had terrible separation anxiety and nervousness around other dogs to the point that he was tearing down and destroying every screen and window we had if left alone. We did at home training to start and then boarded him and after staying with Kevin and his follow up instruction we can finally enjoy walking our dog and are working with him on the separation but it has improved dramatically. They helped us better understand where it was coming from to truly be able to know how to help too. Thank you Kevin and Latoya for all that you do! Jasper thanks you too!
We only had two weeks to find a dog walking before leaving for 16 days. I used Thumbtack to get some leads. Meg, who owns Peace Love and Walks, responded immediately and we set up an appt. She came out to meet us and Molly. She was professional as well as friendly and helpful. Her price for walking is very competitive and fair. We really liked her background in working in veterinary clinics and her reviews of her dog walking. She and Molly hit it off right from the start. She came to our house every day we were gone and walked, fed, and played with Molly. She sent us emails and pictures of her walks with Molly which made us feel good about our choice of dog walker. Our trip was so much more enjoyable since we didn't have to worry about Molly while we were gone. I would highly recommend her.
My dog Bambina usually suffers from separation anxiety, and in the care of Miki with Pupparazzi Pet care, she was so happy and relaxed she never realized i was away. Miki has a way with dogs and really understands them. I highly recommend !!!
Tracie is awesome. Our dog has a big smile. Very professional service.
Our dog, Coconut, received puppy training through Laguna Niguel City classes taught by Wendy, about two years ago. Ever since then, we have used Wendy's help for training, dog walking, as well as pet boarding services. There are a few major points to mention about Doggie Do Pet Services / Wendy Brookhyser: 1. She is very reliable, responsible, and caring. 2. Our dog, Coconut, absolutely loves and adores her. 3. Wendy is one of the best trainers we have seen. To our eyes, she is an expert in dog training and dog behavior. In addition to puppy training, Wendy helped us with Canine Good Citizen training, and Coconut passed the test with flying colors one year ago. 4. Last, but not least, when Coconut returns from pet boarding with Wendy, he has played so much that he sleeps for a day or two!!!
Jenny rocks! She became mom #2 to our doodle after leaving her in Jenny's care while we visited family overseas. She provides great exercise for the dogs regularly via multiple walks a day along with dog park visits. Our doodle Ruby has even made friends with other dogs she is caring for. I know that if I leave Ruby with Jenny, she is being well cared for and having a blast.
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.
I have been using Happy Paws pet sitting for over a year now, for overnights and dog walks. I think there a great! They give lots of TLC & playtime and are very dependable.
Very kind, affordable, and does personal follow up. She's my new vet for my 15 year old dog.
Amanda is very good with our dog Beans. He is a very active lab mix and she keeps his well exercised and he loves her.
Lynn and Jared are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! They truly love animals and it really shows. We have used them for years now and each time we feel comfortable, confident and rest assured that our furry bunch will be well taken care of. We have 4 dogs and 4 cats and all of them love, love, love Lynn and Jared very much. They get a ton of love and attention and are all very happy and healthy upon our return. Lynn and Jared treat all of our pets as if they were their own. Other petsitters charge in 30-minute increments and only stay for the time you pay for. Lynn and Jared stay as long as needed to get everything done and to make sure everyone gets a lot of attention. They make sure the house is cleaner than they found it, which is truly appreciated. They clean the dog waste in the backyard and keep the litter boxes nice and clean. They leave detailed notes on each visit and what each pet was up to. They bring in the mail and take out the trash on trash day to keep up the appearance that people are still home. They do not charge extra for giving medication, getting the mail, watering plants, etc., as many others do. All of that is included in their already very reasonable prices. Their contractor Amanda is also WONDERFUL. She is very sweet and hard working as well. She has the same love for animals as Lynn and Jared, treating ours as if her own. Our animals all love her too. Amanda holds the same values, principles and hard work ethic that the owners have established as the foundation for their business and it really shows in her work and dedication. She also makes sure that the pets are happy and healthy and the house is clean and orderly. I couldn't thank all of them enough for everything they do for our furry bunch... and with 8 animals that is truly an amazing feat! I would highly recommend Truly TLC Pet Sitting.
Jamie came to my house and did an assessment of my dog Cooper. Cooper was a little anxious upon her arrival as I expected but calmed down after getting to know her. She was great to work with and schedule a weekly training session to work on my dogs socialization with new people and animals. I'm excited to begin the process. Jamie was awesome by the way.
