KYM IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MY DOG AND I BOTH;SHE IS AWESOME! SHE KNOWS HER STUFF AND IS VERY KIND!Frida is my first dog & considered by some a "problem breed".I rescued her mother & siblings & found then all homes...except Frida, I chose her from the litter.Years before meeting Kym, I read up a bit. I did some things right for my puppy! Icrate trained her, and took her to puppy classes. She was easily potty trained, and trained not to bark, chew or nibble on fingers. She learned to sit, stay, fetch, and high five. She is very loyal& sweet and once scared off an intruder who came in through my kitchen window at night!!!! I thought everything was great. Frida always had a big yard, a bed inside, and always seemed happy. At about 6 years old, we moved to a smaller place. Frida had a dog run &we played often but @ 65 lbs, she needed to go on walks. I then realized what a naughty human I had been. Frida was totally unsocialized, she tugged on her leash, would nip if strangers tried to pet her, disliked children, and refused to come when I called her. She liked to chase motorcycles..skate boards, trucks, & cats.....oh my!I had inadvertently conditioned her to be a yard guard dog. ...with very poor social skills and bad manners. Total nightmare @ the park!I became so worried about her running off and her seemingly aggressive behavior, our walks became very stressful. I felt guilty and stressed!I tried a few trainers who suggested choke chains and various techniques until KYM RESCUED US!!!!! She convinced me to bring my 6 year old dog to puppy classes. I always say Kym trained me and my dog responded quickly. She didn't let me waste anymore time feeling worried our stressed. She was kind, patient, and well informed. It became a simple matter of me learning to understand my dogs needs and behavior. Frida comes when called, doesn't chase cars, and has even spent time at doggy day care with other dogs!!!!! She's even nice to the cable guy! Yet, I'm still confident Frida would stave off any intruders!Kym trained us both well!! I have my sweet best buddy back with more play options than ever! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KYM FOR ANY DOGGY NEEDS YOU MAY HAVE!!!!
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.
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..
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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!
Natalie loves animals. She treats my dog as if he was hers. She is a kind and caring person. My dog gets treated like family when he is in her care. She’s my only choice when I head out of town.
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!!
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.
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 :) )
Daily dog care and training for multiple dogs. Total reliability is important to me because I work far from home. Loving the dogs is important, too.
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!
Took care of my puppies very well and stayed overnight with them. My girls love her and her family...
Eva is such a great doggy-sitter for our family. She takes great care of Ziggy; he's a tough dog that doesn't trust many people. Eva is trustworthy, conscientious, and reliable. We wouldn't entrust our dog and home to anyone else!
Tracy was great! Very reliable, very friendly and took awesome care of my dog Mars Thank you.
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!
Pam and the Dogs got along instantly, She is very professional and really loves her business.
