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.
Don is very professional and conscientious. His dog training methods are proving to be very effective for our 4 month old puppy. I recommend him highly.
He came to my house and started training my dog right away. He knows his stuff and the price was very fair. Highly recommend him.
Tierney is an absolute godsend! She got our Sophie over some pretty amazing hurdles. Sophie had recently become very aggressive on walks to the point of being uncontrollable! We were worried we would never be able to walk her safely again! With Tierney's help we are now able to have calm and enjoyable walks. We loved Tierney so much we immediately took our new puppy to her, and he is also making amazing strides wth Tierney! I would recommend Unleash The beast-Dog Training for wild dogs and It's amazing owner Tierney to anyone needing help with their dog!
Great experience. Very excited about getting my dog trained.
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.
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.
Darcie is great at what she does and has a wealth of knowledge for dog training. She responds very quickly and is available via phone/text/email to answer any questions once you become her client. Darcie came to our house and assessed our delicate situation with my dog I’ve had for 9 years that has nervous and aggressive tendencies. We just welcomed our newborn baby recently and were needing some serious help with my husband and i getting on the same page for how to better train our dog as, before the baby, she kind of had free reign of the house and training techniques were not established so we needed some help in how to get our dog to follow our directions and live in a safer environment with the new baby now in the picture. Darcie helped us lay down some ground rules and also many techniques to use to help distract the dog from getting nervous and “jealous” when the baby is around me. After our first training session, she sent us an email afterwards reviewing everything we went over so we had some detailed notes to look back on, and also made sure to follow up afterwards on if we had any questions or concerns with the new training techniques she went over with my husband and i. We had one other training session afterwards to review how things were going and also went over some new techniques to assist with getting our dog to maintain her barking when the doorbell is rang/knocked on. We now have some great tools to help manage our situation better thanks to Darcie. Another great thing is she is not “pushy” and works on a customer needs basis so she will not try to “sell” you on getting some type of training package deal, rather schedule her to come train as needed. Thanks so much Darcie for your help and we look forward to touching base with you as time goes on!
Annette took care of my boxer Kara for a few days and she was great .she took her hiking and my dog loves her.

I am very outgoing and adventurous person. I love taking my siblings and pets to the park and playing with them. I love kids, and animals. I usually take the dogs that I walk to parks after we go on our walk and let them run around a play for a little bit before I take them home.

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.
