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..

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.

I was very happy with Amanda taking care of our three cats. Two of them hid from her like the fraidy cats they are but the third one was out and Amanda sent me a picture of her every day that she was there. It was super sweet. She also went above and beyond by vacuuming the carpet by the litter boxes on the last day. WOW! I couldn't believe she did that. We will definitely ask Amanda to take care of our furbabies the next time we are out of town.

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!

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!

Dianne Lawrence is an awesome private animal behaviorist trainer. When I took my new puppy that I adopted from the Los Angeles Animal Shelter there, she was nervous, frightened, confused, hiding, but after a few times there and seeing Dianne in action and how loving and calm she was with a room full of energetic and rambunctious untrained puppies I was convinced I should sign up for her private training classes. Previously I had two other dogs and two different trainers for them and paid a whole lot more and it wasn't private and it didn't work. With Dianne - in just 4 sessions my dog can walk on the leash, and knows wait, come, sit, down stay and her name. Dianne has simple, positive techniques and socialization skills that she teaches for all kinds of aggressive issues and anti-social behavior. She is so patient and loving with them. She is just awesome, a loving person who cares about each dog as if they were her very own. I have known her for a while now and whenever I say to my puppy that we are going to see Dianne she gets so happy and excited and can't wait to get there. I will always go back for more of her loving care and positive reinforcement.

About

We know all facets of animal care, training, and advice, from race horses to rodents. I feel I am your best choice because of my veterinary experience (ability to catch a problem before it becomes an emergency, awareness of my limitations, the ability to admit when it's time to seek other help, and the fact that I never hurry or pressure an animal, nor its people). I care about doing a good job, and I strive to keep all my clients very satisfied with my work. I only use positive reinforcement. References are available upon request.

I'm very personal. This isn't just a business. This is a passion, and a desire to meet the needs of customers.

About

Dogs love me and come up to me all the time. That is my passion. I have taken good care of them through feeding, watering, walking and playing with them. In my past, I washed dogs as a career and soothed them when they are scared.

About

Whether you need a pet sitter, dog walker or just someone to stop by while you are on vacation or away for the day, I will work with you to fit your and your animals needs. I have been around animals all my life (from horses to birds, and everything in between) and volunteer at animals shelters on occasion as well.
