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.
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.
Chris completely changed the bad behavior of my dog. He taught me how to break my own bad habits as a pet owner that I didn't even know I had. I'm so thankful for the time he invested into me and my animal!
Hi...my name is gigi Mitchell...I discovered Vipet Sitter Ser 13 or 14 years ago.I needed a dog walker for my 2 little Bichon's," Scotch and Soda"....Cindy, the owner, came to my house for our first meeting.

And she doesn't cost an arm and a leg....She has very well earned her "best pet sitter service' all these years....She's one in a million ! gigi Mitchell.
Mike is an amazing trainer. He has an amazing ability to read a dog body language. He has helped me with several personal and foster dogs to be appropriate in public spaces. I've learned a great deal from Mike about dog behavior.
Chris was amazing with both of my dogs. From the moment I met with Chris she treated my babies like her own. She will be my go to, baby human dog sitter.
Alex has been helping me improve my happiness as well as my dogs. I have seen greatly improved behavior from my dog and we are still working at getting where we want to be. I feel more confident every week!
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.
Bill is very patient with the dogs and handlers and is very knowledgeable about training.
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.
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.
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!
What a fabulous experience we had with Christine and K9to5! She’s very knowledgeable about dog behavior and is happy to share her knowledge. Classes are fun and always positive for both Dog and handler. Highly recommend to anyone looking for training. Thanks to Christine I’ve been able to achieve my long time goal of becoming a certified therapy dog team.
Helena was an amazing dog trainer both for our rescue dog Woodrow, and for us. Her training was multi-faceted in that she trained us as much as she trained our dog. Woodrow is a rescue, and we called Helena after he developed a rather nasty biting habit. We were desperate to get help immediately, and unlike other companies in the area, Helena called us back immediately, and like us, took the issue of our aggressive dog very seriously. When other companies believed that it was "just a phase" or that a muzzle or a shock collar would be the best course of action, Helena respectfully disagreed. She proved that aggressive dogs can and will respond well to positive reinforcement and behavior modification through intense but rewarding training techniques. When we "interviewed" Helena, she met us at our house for a 90-minute consultation. She provided us with printed handouts on aggression as well as some initial training techniques to begin. We decided to go with her, which was a life-changing decision for our dog; Woodrow has improved drastically since Helena has worked with him. When we first had Woodrow, he could not be within 20 feet of a stranger without barking or growling, and now, his "bubble" has been greatly reduced. During our 8-weeks with Helena, we worked on a doorbell training routine, practiced how to be around other dogs on walks, learned what to do if a stranger approaches us on a walk, how to manage off-leash dogs, and even how to navigate when someone hugs me (he is protective, too!). She came to our house/nearby park always, which was so important as my husband and I both work full time. She was flexible with our schedules and made herself available based on our availability. Finally, her rates are very manageable and fair. It's easy to see that Helena is not concerned with gouging our paychecks for her noteworthy service--she simply wants to see dogs improve. It's refreshing! With Helena you get a true professional who will put your dog at the forefront of her practice. Without Helena, we were ready to give up on our sweet boy, but now, we have renewed hope that he can he rehabilitated for good. Thanks Helena and Training House Calls for being exactly what we needed to save our dog. Best decision ever :)
We had a great experience with Jessica. She truly seems to love animals. Our dogs tend to get sensitive tummies when we have to go somewhere, but they did great with Jessica, she came to our house to meet the dogs, and we sat down and talked about them and a schedule. We came back from our mini vacation and the dogs seemed happy, and the left a daily report of the dogs and what they did, which I really liked. She even gathered our mail and had it waiting for us. Her rates are the best I have found. Will definitely use her again, and recommend her services.
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 pay more attention to the animals then my phone or anything. I will even dress them up. Sometimes train them. Clean their houses.
