Raquel is absolutely amazing! I have two 1-year old female pitbull/labrador mixes that desperately needed training. They knew basic commands such as sit, lie down and shake. However, they never had proper training before. There was constant unruly behavior - jumping on guests and leash pulling among others. Less than an hour into our session, my dogs were listening and staying put - something I could never get them to do. I've had other trainers come by who would sit and go through the animal behavior stuff and as soon as their time was up, they were gone without going through any exercise training. Raquel put in the time and was willing to stay until they got through exercises. I can't thank her enough. My dogs are much more calm now and I was able to bring them to a friend's house without worrying if they'd get into it with the other dogs or people. She's well worth the money!
Karen is a great dog trainer, she knows how to communicate with dogs and their owners. She explained a lot of our dog's behavior issues, answered all our questions, and walked us through real-life situation action items that we started applying. Results were immediate.
I had a private training session with Dee Cee, and it was worth every penny! She has a real passion for training dogs and she is very respectful, clear, thorough and effective. My dog Gubi has behavior problems and Dee Cee came up with methods that immediately worked! She also gave me great tools and tips to use in the future. I was so impressed with Gubi's progress in just a day and I feel like I know my dog much better now. Thank you Dee Cee!!
Very knowledgeable on pet behavior. My dog can finally go to dog parks and everywhere else with me. Thank you. I also recommend my cousin to him. His dog was one of the worst behaved dogs that I've seen (80 pound American Pit bull). This dog is like a brand new dog now. Thank you again.

Dave was great helping us train our boxer puppy. He is now 6 months and still is a work in progress but thanks to Dave we have the tools to raise him as a well behave dog. Dave is very responsible and really cares about the dogs he trains. I really recommend everydog for anybody that is looking for a good trainer.
I am so pleased with my experience with Alison. She is always professional and has a great love for animals. I work 12-14 hour days and Alison comes by everyday to take them for a walk.She lets me know how the walks go with my pups after every trip. I continue to use her services every week and I recommend her to everyone =)
Miki Watters walks our Golden Retriever every weekday. She is prompt, courteous, professional AND reliable!!! Our dog loves her and Miki gives him a great daily workout! I would definitely recommend Miki to anyone looking for a fellow animal lover to take care of their furry friend's fitness needs. I've have dealt with NUMEROUS dog walkers over the years and can tell you, Miki's one of THE best!!!
We are so grateful for Daryl! His team transformed our dogs' behaviors and our household!
I met Jesse at the DPC. He was my instructor for a sheep herding session. He was great! Understood the needs of my dog and guided her throughout the session while informing me. He was very knowledgeable of dog behavior and gave me great tips for me to practice. Overall, I would highly recommend Jesse as an instructor.
To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend Jo-Jeanne Rapier, whom I have known and employed for the past nine years. Jo-Jeanne provided day care, walks, medication administering, boarding, and transportation for my Border Collie, Cilla as well as house sitting, as I was often working out of town. Sometimes those jobs came on short notice and I came to rely heavily on her services and with her dependability, punctuality and trustworthiness, I was never disappointed. I always returned to a happy, healthy, and well groomed dog, my house in pristine condition, and with Jo-Jeannes green thumb, my garden always looked better than how I left it. In the final months of Cillas life, Jo-Jeannes compassionate care was invaluable. She doted on Cilla, as if she was her own, and made that difficult time in Cillas life, and mine, an easier transition. With Jo-Jeannes past involvement of running her own dog rescue, Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association, she is also a staunch advocate of animal rights. And I have witnessed first hand her skills and abilities in working with many kinds of animals and I would give her my highest recommendation with the care of any of your pets. If I can provide any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at: (818)-434-1123 Sincerely, Eric Sandlin
Feet & Paws with Tracy James is super fun and the work has advanced my fitness, my pup's behavior and fitness, and cemented our dog/person relationship. Tracy knows what she's doing dog-wise and people-fitness-wise. If you buy the group classes it's a fair and reasonable price. Linus, our dog, has an amazing array of tricks; I have an amazing new understanding of my pup. I ask if he wants to "see Tracy?" and he jumps up and down.
We brought our 2 year old Chiweenie rescue, Louie, to Allen because he was exhibiting aggressive behavior to me (Tom) and refusing to go outside with me or into his kennel. Allen patiently trained Louie to teach him the principles of Sit Means Sit and spent extra time working with Louie until he was ready to return to our house. Allen also spent a lot of time explaining Sit Means Sit to us and demonstrating it with his dogs to make us comfortable with the system. He then provided us with a detailed training program and showed us how to implement the training program with Louie. It's only been a few days since Louie has been back, but he is responding to us correctly, going outside and into his kennel for me on command and has not shown any aggressive behavior. We're very happy with the service Allen provided. Tom and Michele Visosky
Excellent care and knowledge of all animals, as well as understanding them. My pets would not be left with anyone else.
We are extremely pleased with Mary Crowley's grooming skills and interaction with our animals. Our dogs like her and they look beautiful! Also it is so nice for them that she comes to the house so no trauma having to go in the car and be "left" to be groomed in an unfamiliar place.
I love animals. I take pride in my work. I need to have fun on the job, but I take my work very seriously.
I have owned and trained dogs all my life. I have attended various workshops on animal behaviors and modification. I have extensive experience with large and/or stubborn dogs.
I'm an animal lover who will be delighted to be of your acquaintance. I am gentle with animals, and I give what your pets need, whether it be play time, a walk around the town or food. I am currently and previously an owner of nine cats and two dogs. I have minimum experience in pet training from PetSmart. I am just trying to raise whatever I can for college tuition to further my education. My services are for $10 an hour. Thank you.
My service is taking care of any-size animals; walking them and showing them love is the best I do. They can stay at my house if you will like for 2-day minimum.
