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.

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.

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.

Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!

My rescue Astro, an Australian Shepherd/Akita/Husky mix, is naturally dominant, and fearful/anxious of almost everything. Rusty's knowledge and hands-on experience truly shine with these issues and breeds. Always professional, Rusty is flexible with working around our schedules. We have completed over 15 hours of training with Rusty. After an initial meet n' greet and one session, Rusty immediately had a good feel for Astro's fears and was able to pinpoint root causes. He provided in depth lessons for both me AND Astro. Much of the training is teaching us humans proper technique for recognition, prevention, and reaction to behaviors.Therefore, the true work starts at home, with the owners post lesson. Rusty has provided me with the tools I needed to become a genuine leader for my dog. I've learned SO much and cannot be more grateful to his dedication and patience. Rusty goes above and beyond EVERY time he meets with us, and I've never been disappointed. He provides a plethora of resources, even outside our training hours via email; from printable PDFs for your fridge, to recommended toys and dog food, to articles on a variety of topics! He will answer any questions you can throw at him, and if he isn't sure, he'll do in depth research to find the best answer! You name it, Rusty will provide solutions and advice. I've seen VAST improvements in my dog's behavior over the past few months! Consistency and dedication to your pet at home is key, for sure. However, we could not have done it without Rusty's guidance, and I could not be more happy with the tools and training he has provided us. I highly recommend Pawgress to all! Excellent job, keep up the great work! All our thanks! ~ RoxAnne & Astro

Ryan is awesome. I moved to the area and didn't know anyone. My dogs are so important to me and I was anxious about finding a dog walker to help me out. From the start Ryan was really positive and super nice. He is communicative and flexible. He mixes up the walks by taking my dogs to the dog park and for walks. My schedule can be a little unpredictable and Ryan is always able to adjust. I highly recommend him!

She took care of Scrappy my 14 year old Cat. I really appreciate how caring she is because he is getting older and sometimes throws up. I think she is a genuine person and animal lover. I would highly recommend her

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!

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

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.
