Worked with our newest rescue dog, as well as our two other dogs. We thought we needed help with the new one to integrate her and begin training but realized right away - that all three needed help. He is great at explaining dog training in new ways that make great sense and suddenly seem so easy and obvious. He had all three dogs behaving on leash, and taught them all to lie down before he left. He even got our littlest who is terrified of everyone to calm down and take treats from him (NEVER happens with strangers). We have booked three more sessions.

Bob has been working with me and my rescue Tucker on & off for a few months now. Tucker is a 4 year old terrier mix. Bob is an amazing trainer and I love his Zen-like style. He is patient, kind & caring and is teaching me, along with Tucker. I would HIGHLY recommend Bob for your dog training needs! ???

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.

Michael is amazing with my dog Bobb. After the first week, I noticed an improvement in some of the things I wanted Michael to work with him on. Michael always sends me pics & updates on progress with my dog at least three times a week. I already recommended his services to a few friends. I highly recommend hiring him for training and dog walking services.

Jen is friendly and positive. She had some very helpful suggestions on getting the potty training from a 75% to 100% success rate. I had not left the puppy alone and she helped me find an area that was safe with suggestions on how to set it up. Worked on basic training (sitting, walking on leash, etc.). I felt like I got a lot out of our session. I will be calling on her again in a few weeks for additional help.

We loved Sophia! She is very personable and we knew Hank was in great hands while he was boarded and trained. We especially found the follow-up lessons to be beneficial in helping us put his new skills to use and practice commands. We are sad that Sophia is moving, but thankful for all the help she has provided us and our dog Hank!

I have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.

Due to an injury I am unable to walk my dog. After speaking with Ali on the phone, I knew found the right person. Her love for dogs is obvious, and my dog loves her too. Ali reinforces the training I have already done with my dog and challenges her with new experiences on their walk. I would highly recommend Ali for any pet care needs, and will continue to use her in the future even when I'm better. Linda P. on April 29, 2015

About

I offer dog sitting services in your home. I prefer pet sitting in your home because that's where your dog(s) will feel most at ease and comfortable. Are you feeling guilty because you'll be having fun on vacation while your dog says home? Well, fret not. I'm an active person who walks every day and would love to take your little pal along with me. There is a dog park within a mile and a half, or we can go hiking or even take a stroll by the beach. These various activities can be planned to keep your pup happy and you'll be comfortably updated while you're on your vacation. Meet and greets are a must. It is immensely important for me to understand all needs of your dog. Such as dietary needs, potty habits, favorite toys, etc. so that I can fully service you and your dog during his/her stay. I am knowledgeable about dog health and know where the nearest pet hospitals are located. If you'd like me to do doggy errands, there is a pet store one block away from my place.
