Courtney is one heck of an amazing trainer! She is not only wonderful with dogs, but she also has an incredible talent for working with people, too. She will help you to understand your dog's behaviors and she emphasizes fixing problematic behaviors instead of just managing them. I can't recommend her enough for anything from puppy training to advanced obedience and fear-based behaviors.

Our first training session was Wonderful! Logan was professional, informative and extremely compassionate, calm and helpful. After listening to our "story," issues and concerns about our dog's behavior, and then observing us together, he provided easy and clear instructions on how to make life more enjoyable for us And our pet. We cannot wait for the next session!

Tammy is a wonderful dog trainer! I have had my dog for three years now. In the first year of adopting my dog from rescue center; he had a lot of anxiety and bark non- stop. In about seven months with working with the techniques Tammy would suggest he no longer barks when I'm not home. I encourage and recommend Tammy as your dog trainer . She has a lot of knowledge on the psychology of dog behavior , and you will see your dog have major improvements.

I recently adopted two mature, medium-sized dogs from Southern California. After hearing lots of horror stories from the previous owner regarding how they behaved, I was nervous about them being a good fit. After a chance meeting with Les in a parking lot, I called to see if he would help me with assessing their behavior and work on socializing them with other dogs. I couldn't be happier with the results. His guidance lead ME to higher levels of confidence which has lead to our being relaxed and confident with having them out in public settings as well as with the neighborhood dogs and children.

John is very knowledgeable about the psychology of dogs and he came to our house to show us how to deal with the specific problems we were having at home. Taking our dog out to another trainer was not addressing our specific behavior problems at home. John is very nice and caring of our dog and we have been very happy with his dog training. He has given us the tools that we need to work on our dogs behavior and let our dog be an active member of our family.

Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!

Maj is a fantastic trainer. She is kind and patient with me, which makes me much more comfortable doing the things I need to do with my dog. She is wonderful with my dog and models the behavior I need to have with him so I learn even when she’s not teaching that specific skill. My dog is much better behaved and, while he’s always been a happy dog, he’s even happier now. He is definitely calmer. Thank you Maj!

Erika takes excellent care of my cats. She always sends pictures or videos and status updates when she is watching them. They seem happier and calmer when I get home than they have when I used other cat sitters. She follows care instructions well, is very easy to schedule with and her rates are competitive. She's clearly an animal lover!

Krystal is absolutely amazing. I knew she as a great fit right from our initial communication and confirmed during our first meeting and subsequent visits. She has a true love for animals and it show in her work. I'll definitely be contacting Krystal again for future pet sitting needs.

Amazing. There is simply no other word to describe Shauna's talent with dogs. Her ability to train dogs in an astoundingly short time is something that must be witnessed to be believed. I recommend attending her class just to watch her work whether you have a dog or not, but beware - if you have a dog, you will end up signing up for classes - and it will be one of the best things you can do for your animal.

Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.

If you are looking for someone who is professional, reliable, and caring you should work with Kelli. She understands dogs and their behavior better than anyone I know. She really speaks their language. I would recommend Kelli to anyone. Adam C

Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.

Stoakly, had issues with leash pulling, attentiveness and general obedience. After working with Keynoe with his 3 week transformative program, Stoakly is a completely different dog! Listens to basic commands when we walk and is so much calmer. We even had the opportunity to hang out with other dogs at the local park - the dogs got along so well and Keynoe managed all their behaviors at once. I was really impressed by how easy Keynoe is to work with, his professionalism and flexibility when working with me and Stoakly 1:1. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with training and even if you just want a fun and reliable friend for your dog.

We were concerned about our dog Lola and her anxious behaviors. We contacted Lea and we are so glad we did! Lea is kind, caring and understanding. She took the time to get to know our dog, Lola. She is experienced and really helped us to gain a better understanding of how to help Lola with her issues. She gave us strategies to work on before our next session. She said if we have any issues or questions to let her know so she can help us work through it with Lola. We definitely recommend Lea, without a doubt!

I have a 14 year old chow-mix named J-Jay. I wanted Becky to walk him when I was working 10 hour shifts. For a couple of weeks. At first I was worried that he wouldn't like her. (he gets very moodie) But he took to her right away. Now that I am not working 10 hour shifts anymore I still have Becky walk him here and there so he can be very open to meeting new people and dogs. I would recommend Becky because she is kind and loving to animals and even their owners.

    About

    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.
