Very happy with the work Dion has done with our new pup. He is responding very well to the methods employed. Dion seem very good at identifying dog personality traits and how best to go about getting results. He is very direct and to the point which we see very much as a positive in this sort of job. Would highly recommend his services. The training is more expensive than other options out there, but after multiple conversations with other trainers, he seemed like the best fit for our needs. Other trainers interviewed told us many of the behaviors our dog was exhibiting may not be trainable. Dion was up to the task and has done an excellent job.
Pete was a life saver. He taught us the techniques we needed to change our dog's behavior. We went from chaos to calm and began to enjoy our new puppy. Pete always listened to our concerns and provide guidance. Having the training in our house allowed us to work with our dog in her environment.
Laura has helped me get back in the saddle after 18 years. Her horses are fantastic, well rounded, safe, and offer a challenge for riders of all levels. Laura's riding lessons are approximately 1 hour, however she has allowed my lessons to go over the time schedules when needed. She is a good instructor for learning the basics and more. She takes the time to properly address safety for horse and rider as well as the details required to properly care for and own a horse. The care and time she puts into her horses is reflected by the amazing fitness level and happy attitude her animals have.
We learned a lot from Teresa! She helped us with techniques for our 1.5 yr old dog's fear/aggression towards strangers and leash reactivity. We were given great tools during our 3 months of training to continue improving in the future. Teresa is very knowledgeable about animal behavior and a professional that we would certainly recommend.
Daily feeding and care for single cat for 1 week. Excellent job, very caring, no complaints. Animal was well cared for and seemed very content upon my return from vacation.
Kay is amazing. Our Border Collie started learning on day one. She clearly understands how different animals respond to different situations, motivations, etc. We could not be more happy with our experience.
Jane takes care of our dog Roland at least once a week for daycare and has also cared for both Roland and our other dog, Henry, while we were away on vacation. Jane is truly an animal person - she worked for many years in animal rescue and lives with many cats and dogs that she has helped and rescued over the years. Prior to hiring Jane, we saw her dozens of times at the dog park, faithfully walking the dogs in her care. She was always calm, patient and kind with each of them, even when there was much barking and excitement going on. We trust Jane to genuinely care about and take care of our pups.
Our Thumtack contact was a very knowledgeable and confident trainer names Andi Nault. She was not dissuaded by my very active Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves people and any dog withing eye view. She worked patiently with us, gave us some new tools to use with Penny and lots of encouragement. She offered doggy daycare which I thought might be useful and it was. Penny learned to read the cues of the other dogs that didn't want to roughhouse. Andi was very good with Penny, consistent, confident, reassuring and had other options to offer us if we wanted them but no pressure. She recommended Boarding facilities we had no knowledge of, other trainers, behavioral specialists, hour long dogie play time, etc. I highly recommend Andi Nault for whatever dog behavior you want to address.
Bill is very patient with the dogs and handlers and is very knowledgeable about training.
A real animal lover from the word go! Both of my dogs love her, and enjoy her company. I appreciate the piece of mind I get when she cares for them.
Steph took care of my pets on several occasions when we lived in the same area. She loves and understands animals, and even volunteers for a local shelter. Top notch all the way!
Connor obviously loves animals! He is considerate and reliable and deals with our cat that needs shots for his diabetes with no problems. We highly recommend Connor and we use Colorado Pet Sitters consistently.
Annie is very passionate about animals, especially dogs and takes the time and care make sure they are well taken care of. Annie has taken care of my dog a number of times and it has always been a good experience for me and my dog.
Patricia helped me out immensely during a very hard time in my life. My mother had been admitted into the hospital for an extended period of time leaving her 3 cats and large dog alone. As I was busy with work, it make it impossible for me to care for them properly. Thank God for Patricia who'd been highly recommended by a friend. She arrived promptly and took charge of the situation leaving me with the peace of mind I needed to see to my mother's health. Patricia went out of her way to only care for the animals but also spent quality time with them, playing and just hanging with them. She made sure the pets were well fed and that they never felt abandoned or lonely. Patricia was a life saver and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, warm assistant no matter the calling.
Alison has taken my dog Pig for 60-minute walks several times. Long walks really help burn up Pig's excess energy and help her sleep better. Alison is reliable and responsible and I can tell how much she loves Pig!
She's amazing trust her with my animals and kids
Victoria with Furever Behavior Dog Training is a wonderful trainer. Our dog was a rescue who had lived on the streets and he had many issues. Our dog guarded his food and toys, did not know basic obedience or manners, was not housebroken, did not know to come when called, did not know how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm off, did not know about or like his crate and more. After working with Victoria, we learned how to give our dog the cues he needed to get the behaviors we all wanted. He quickly learned to love his crate as his safe and special place, housebreaking was rapid and our dog learned to trust us. Victoria gave us the tools and skills we needed to be good dog owners and our dog responded positively and swiftly to Victoria's techniques. And, speaking of positive, Victoria only uses positive training methods -- no punishment. And our dog loved, loved, loved Victoria. Well done!
I've never met a more caring and supportive vet than Dr. Questen, she's been our vet for many years, my animals love her and she's always there when we need her! I highly recommend her!

I pay more attention to the animals then my phone or anything. I will even dress them up. Sometimes train them. Clean their houses.

I grew up with all kinds of animals - rodents, cats, dogs, and horses. I started working with dogs when I was 15 years old. Now a days I work front desk at a dog training center and in my spare time, I volunteer as a dog trainer for the Dumb Friends League and I volunteer at a Boxer rescue here in Denver. I'm very comfortable with dogs of all sizes and when your dog is with me, he/she will be both physically and mentally stimulated since I love long walks and I always bring puzzle toys for the dogs.
