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.

We had our first meeting with Don today, to help us with our dogs training. He was right on time, very friendly and cordial, and within 5 minutes, had Peanut responding to his commands! It was amazing! Our goal was to teach our little one some manners, no barking and jumping on guests when they arrive! No licking of any bare skin he can find, and the biggest issue is separation anxiety. Don had specific suggestions for dealing with the anxiety issue, and he is even going to loan us a product to deter the barking, so we can see if it works with Peanut before we buy it! All in all, we are very pleased, and would recommend Don to anyone who wants a good honest and caring trainer.

Overall Kevin has a lot of knowledge in dog training and worked very well with us and our dog. The only downside would be his punctuality.

We have been working with Shauna since our Doberman was 10 weeks old. We started off with her beginner class and went all the way though to get our dog AKC CGC certified. Shauna is a great trainer who taught us a lot of great techniques. She is very patient and our doberman loves her.

We have a pit bull mix we adopted from a shelter, and worked with Faith for several months. We loved working with her. She was so warm, yet firm with our dog, and her training was very effective! Her directions were always very clear. We especially appreciated her style of training, which is "positive reinforcement." We highly recommend her!

WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.

We met with Kevin for an initial consultation for our 2 boxers. In the short time he spent with us, our dogs learned so very much. Kevin showed an instant connection with our boys and we are excited to start working with him. He was able to answer all our questions and provide honest answers.

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.

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.

About

My name is Jennyfer. I have been living in this area on and off for 36 years. I have been taking care of animals all my life. I feel that a house is not whole without an animal in it. I have had many jobs taking care of other people's pets, and I see their pets as a member of my family when I'm taking care of them. I am a certified dog trainer and have a degree from Animal Behavior College. I have been training dogs professionally since 2006 but my parents say that I have been training dogs and animals since I was three. I took care of all the neighborhood animals when people were away and trained some of their dogs. I have experience with all types of animals, from horses to mice. I offer the following: * Dog training: group, private, daycare, or board and train * Pet sitting in your house * Boarding in my home * Dog walking
