It’s such a big world out there for a first time dog owner. You’ve got your vet giving you advice, the neighbor giving you different advice, google, YouTube, word of mouth...it’s hard to actually know how to teach your dog in the best way for your dog. For an entire year I had created an amazing bond with my dog, and we are inseparable. However, because I didn’t understand training, she had a lot of fear issues that turned into what would look like aggression at first, then an unnatural need to please. She needed help before her issues of barking, being defensive, and being afraid escalated to a level where she would intentionally “go off or after” another human who was a stranger. Paula connected with me and it was just the best possible experience ever. Paula is the type of person you just want to be friends with even after the lesson. She’s understanding and patient. I don’t even know if my dog would’ve done as well, had I gone with a different trainer/teacher. Within 5 weeks Zoey had improved immensely. And not just her, but me as well. I started to understand her behaviors and mannerisms and help her before she could even react negatively. I would tell all of my friends to go to Paula and would 100/100 choose her help with our dogs again.
Kim and Lori were fantastic. Lori came out with Kim (the one who would be staying overnight) to meet my dogs. I was very impressed when they brought toys for them. Kim was great with my dogs as well as taking care of my house. I received daily texts and pictures of the dogs which relieved any anxiety I had about leaving the dogs. My vet is in Orange County but Lori recommended a vet close by which reassured me that if there happened to be an emergency everything would be handled. I also appreciate the fact that they are licensed and bonded, just another reassurance. I am very happy with the services Coco and Boo provided for my fur babies. Kim treated my dogs like they were her own. I could tell how much they liked her when she returned the house key once I got home. I will be using them again when I go out of town.
I always feel safe when Meg is with my dog! I have a dog with special needs (epilepsy) who is 14 years old, and Meg's vet tech background makes me feel at ease. She's reliable, trustworthy, and a truly wonderful person to do business with.
Lisa is amazing! I had issues w/my travel that changed our arrangements and inconvenienced her but she was incredibly gracious and completely stepped up! She is 100% reliable, super kind, sweet and loving with my animals. Plus, big bonus, she works at Vet Clinic so she knows her stuff!
Bill is highly recommended by my family, including our "Old Man Puppy", Apollo. We were blessed when we found Bill. He is experienced as a Vet Clinician/Tech and knew how to handle our rescued dog who needed a lot of TLC. It's been 1yr and Apollo has learned from Bill to trust and obey people. Bill's kind, calm, tender and quiet manner has helped Apollo become the dog we knew was inside waiting to emerge! We trust Bill 100% and you will too!
No only does Glitter Groomer care about your dogby making them look and smell great; she recommends food and nutritional supplements and has tons of holistic advise that Works!!!
My sister has a very large, shy dog that was abused by a stranger as a pup. Her name is Daisy. I met Shaunna through that shy dog. Daisy has never in her 10 yrs in our family EVER allowed anyone but my sis, our vet (who makes house calls) or myself touch her...until Shaunna. She just walked right up to Shaunna as Shaunna was walking a someone's dog and acted like she had just found a long lost family member. We were in shock! And have been in awe of Shaunna's talent for working with and walking dogs and relating with any animal! Also, there isn't a more reliable, honest person around. I'm proud to recommend her for whatever job you may have for her as I have found her work ethic impeccable and as far as I have found she is a Jackie-of-all-trades.
My dog Greg, my husband and I all love Eric. He is extremely reliable and trustworthy. He has a really special relationship with animals. It is no wonder that he dates a vet. I wish I could better explain how Eric is THE BEST! My husband and I both have very hectic schedules, but Eric is always available to help us out or modify his walks based on our needs. Greg is not always the easiest dog, he can be a handful around people and other dogs, but Eric makes it work. We always get amazing pictures and funny comments that make us feel really thankful that he is there to help us out and that he loves Greg too. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone out there who needs help with their pet and is looking for someone extremely dependable, timely, and great at his job!
Monica has not only made my dog Max beautiful every two weeks for the last 8 years, she has socialized him. Initially she had to isolate him from the other dogs but now he hangs out right in the mix, completely comfortable. My vet has complimented my dog due to Monica's care. Monica is my Dog Whisperer. I'm so grateful to her for her skill and great care. And Max loves her!
Dr. Madison was so amazing with our shitzu. We love her and her very personalized service. She is our vet for life!
Kate is a very trustworthy person to have responsible over your dog. Although she spends a lot of time focusing on school, in her spare time she interns at a vet office and loves to take care of all animals. She is a loving dog owner and would love to take care of others!
Talking about a miracle worker! That's Jenn Cull with Doggy D Tails. My dog was literally deaf and blind. And Jenn performed a miracle task. She trained my deaf and blind dog. When Antler was a puppy, we had no idea of what was coming. She played and seemed very normal, by 6 mos. old she stopped chasing the ball and really didn't respond to my husband and I anymore. We called Jenn in. After close evaluation she recommended we take Antler to the vet. That's where she was diagnosed with a rare disorder, probably genetic. Jenn, asked if she could still work with Antler and we allowed her to. Without much hope, we didn't see what we could loose. Today, if you didn't know it, you cannot tell that Antler is deaf and partially blind. Jenn has taught Antler how to use her sense of smell and vibrations on the floor to respond to our commands. Antler even goes to the doggy park and has turned out to be our most beloved best friend in the whole world, all thanks to Jenn Cull of Doggy D Tails in San Diego.
Kris is the best of providing great pet service along with customer service. He really understands animals, and he is able to help the customer connect with their animal through his work. He is even a excellent dog trainer, so that high energy dog will not be such a burden anymore
