My dog Tristan, a standard poodle, is getting elderly and has arthritis with very bad weakness in his back legs so it has gotten to the point that taking him to a groomer is too hard on him and more dangerous of him getting hurt. I am so thankful I found Desiree who does in-home groom visits where Tristan can be comfortable, not have to stand so long and can now even lay down in the comfort of my home and get groomed. Desiree was on time, she took time to let Tristan warm up to her, she was so gentle and has the experience to gently handle my elderly dog, she cleaned up after, she was so friendly and easy to talk to and Tristan looked wonderful afterwards! She even helped put a name to a possible health problem just from hearing Tristan cough so will ask my vet about it. I am so happy to have found Desiree and she has gained a permanent customer.
I'm abosoulty happy with the way Don Kirkish works, he showed up to my house for an introductory session for only $50, showed up on time, was very friendly & easy going. He immediately receives my dog with open arms & instantly started working with him. To my surprise my dog Major caught on very quickly & right away listening pretty well! What i have been trying to teach Major in months, Don came & taught him in minutes! Major was very happy with Dons services as well! If my dog is happy. Im estatic! My favorite thing about Dons work is that he uses pure love & commands to train. Without treats! That way dog always responds. It was truely a blessing to find him.. My family & Major look forward to continue working with him! If your looking for a trainer for your dog & come across Don. Don't hesitate, give him a call!! You will NOT be sorry.. I MEAN IT!!
After years of my miniature Australian shepherd pulling on the leash and generally being unruly on walks, Kevin was able to show me how to walk him on a slack leash in 2 sessions. I never thought my hyper-mini could behave so well on walks, but already mid-course through his 8 session package I am seeing great results. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone searching for a Sacramento dog trainer.
Choosing the right dog trainer for my dog Happy seemed like a daunting task when I first got started. I had three different trainers come for a consultation with my boy before I called Tierney with Unleash Your Beast. I feel lucky to have found her. She made me feel at ease. Her calm nature and knowledge of dog behavior was very impressive to me. And Happy seemed to really like having her work with him some. She helped me to better understand my boys not so amazing behavior and made sure I understood how she could help us overcome our problem. Tierney's confidence in the situation put my mind to rest and I am super excited to get started with Unleash Your Beast's board and train program as I feel it is what is best for my boy.
Great experience. Very excited about getting my dog trained.
Shauna is an amazing talented dog trainer. She worked her magical and brought our very timid dog out of her she'll. We definitely plan to take more classes with her and would recommend her to anyone.
Renata exudes goodness and was thorough in her inquiries about my dog's needs. I definitely hope to hire her again as needed for dog walks.
Kevin gave us an amazing introductory lesson, without the pressure of committing to future lessons. He stayed a long time and worked with two of our dogs although we only set up to work with one. Looking forward to learning a great deal more from him!
We have a black lab who we got when he was 7 weeks old. When we got him, we were told that he had a mellow personality and that he would be calm. This was not true. Our puppy was a handful, high energy, and out of control. We tried classes, and a trainer, and things did not improve. We found Juniper, and she turned the situation around. She is excellent with dogs and puppies. She was able to provide the right training for our dog, which included positive reinforcement, and proper exercise and diet. Juniper also gave us a lot of pointers about how to interact with our dog. One of our challenges was that our dog had no attention span. Juniper taught us how to do mental training exercises with our dog that enabled him to increase his attention span. And he really enjoyed these too. Theo is still a high energy dog, but he is also obedient and fun to be around. Juniper found a dog park nearby, and we take him every week for a vigorous game of fetch, which he loves. We now live in the house in a more harmonious way and we are very grateful. It took a lot of human and dog social skills to transform our complicated situation into something that works. Juniper has what it takes to understand both your dog and you.
I desperately needed a dog trainer to come to my house. Darcy is reliable, she knows her business, she is kind and sweet with the dogs, she trains me effectively and reasonably priced.
Our dog,Bambi, stays at Tug Dogs for a month at a time when we go out of town, a few times a year. Sometimes she is also there for a shorter stay. She is treated like a member of the family, with kindness, love and respect, The care, training and socialization she receives there is far superior to any she has had from other trainers. We have total confidence that she is in the best place she could possibly be! The care Bambi gets at Tug Dogs is way above the highest rating on your scale! We recommend Tug Dog without reservation!!!
Annette took care of my boxer Kara for a few days and she was great .she took her hiking and my dog loves her.
Julie was there to take care of our lab while we were at work. She would come over and let him out of his kennel and play with him, and feed him, and she also played with our other dog. My dog Ryder loved seeing her everyday!! It definately put our minds at ease knowing we could put our trust in her to care of our dog, they are like our kids!! Thanks Julie!
Everything she did was great. Dog happy, owner happy
I am not a professional, but am very good with dogs and interacting with them. Generally, I'm really good at communicating with them, and having them listen. Give me a chance to train the doggie, and I'm certain we will get the result that you want.
Attending one of our training sessions will change you and your dogs life for ever in a positive way.
I am an animal lover especially for dogs. I had an all American bulldog. He got up to 143 lbs. So, I am very capable of handling a big pup. I chose to do this because I specialize in taking care of animals on a daily basis. If you request me to walk/care for your dog, it would be a great pleasure!
I love animals of all sorts so I am pleased to take your pets on walks as much as needed. I truly have a special love for animals and love being out and about with all of them. If you are looking for a person who you can trust and know your family member is in good hands then try me out. I take great pride in how i treat all of them.
I take dogs of all ages and types for walks and dog parks. I also do pet sitting and ensure the safety of your animals. I clean up after them and make sure they are fed in a timely matter, and I also play and love them also.
Animals are my absolute favorite. Some people call me an "animal whisperer" because I know how animals are feeling when interacting with them and what they want. I own two dogs myself, a German shepherd and a Chihuahua, and they mean the world to me.
