    When I brought home Chewy, a stray dog found in Long Beach. I noticed he had some serious issues and wanted to find someone to help me get to know him, train him and help him understand he was in a safe loving new home. Monika of Animals At Home went above and beyond helping me establish this with Chewy. He went from being a scared, spastic guarded dog to a lovable ball of energy! Animals At Home ROCKS! THANK YOU!

    I have a cat that has been scratching and biting me since day one. All I have to do is walk by. But at the same time she can be sweet and loving. I do not believe in giving animals back when they do not behave the way we want, so I contacted Monika. Within a few weeks Sushi has stopped biting and scratching me. Although not the lap cat I wanted she is a true joy and I am so grateful to Monika!!!!

    I have a dog named Leo. He is a beagle chiwawa mix. Shy and stubborn. With the help of Monika he is obediant still a little shy but that's his personailty. He is now potty trained, does not chew anymore and understands and adheres to the commands that she has set in place for him. She not only trains the animals but she bonds with them as well. This was very important to me because Leo can be difficult. I think that she is truly a Jewel and has been as blessing to Leo and I.

    The service offered by Animals At Home is superb. The owner, Monika Magness, is currently taking care of my dog and I couldn't be happier with how much effort and great service she gives my dog.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, Animals At Home is an 11.

It is VERY rewarding knowing that you trained your own dog to become a happy well behaved pet!

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. To be around as many pets as possible to help you "read" them better. Be calm & patient. Observe other trainers techniques, try them and see what works for you & develop your own technique.
