Carrie was absolutely amazing in working with my Schnauzer, who was very unfriendly toward most men and some women. After helping me use desensitization methods, as well as protocol, which helped my dog move past this overwhelming anxiety of new people, Carrie helped me to train my dog to be a Canine Good Citizen, which I am very happy about. In recommending Best Friends Dog Training for future clients, I would emphasize the fact that Carrie works conscientiously, and with motive, and is a women with a very amazing gift in working with animals of all types. She is a wonderful behaviorist, and from my perspective, as a School Psychologist, she is one of the top behaviorist in the animal-behavior field, who truly knows what she is talking about. Thank you Carrie for all you have done for my dog and myself.

The thing about Michael is that he not only knows the mechanics of dog training , he obviously enjoys seeing individual progress in both animal and handler. Although there are standard mechanics for getting a dog from point A to Point B, the process and speed is an individual thing. This is what I learned from him. Now, after Michaels help, my GSD Roman is a stud!

I have used her for the last 10 months to walk my 2 dogs. She always exercises them well, leaves them and my cat fed...she also goes above and beyond and cleans the cat's litter box! She is very responsible and I completely trust her with my "family" and recommend that if you need someone to care your pets you give her a call!

My large Labrador Retrieve, Koa, contracted Botulism causing paralysis in his back legs and partial paralysis in his neck & rib cage muscles. As a result he was unable to walk and had difficulty breathing. Koa required 24 hr. care during recovery. Jennifer took care of him during the day (around 10hrs) while I was at work. Caring for Koa was not easy. A 125lb dog who could not get up to use the bathroom required cleaning him up & his bed area pads and sheets. He also needed be lifted so his resting position was changed every couple hours. As well as, to recover it was important he walked with assistance (physically lifting and supporting his hind quarters) multiple times a day. A very challenging task. Koa had to be hand feed, temperature checked often, monitored continuously, and given multiple medications throughout the day. Jennifer did it all with amazing care. She was always so loving towards Koa. She took better care of my sweet boy than I have ever been take care of in my stays in hospitals Jennifer is AMAZING!.

Christine is an incredibly knowledgeable dog trainer who teaches with patience and encouragement. She gets to know the dogs and their owners and gives them the tools they need to work together successfully. She is amazing in group classes and one-on-one, tuning into what each dog and owner needs. If you and your dog want to learn and have fun together, get into one of Christine's classes!

She actually worked with my dog, took the time to find out what needed to be done, what he responded to more and he actually learned from. Definitely recommend to everyone!

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.

Veronica dog sat our English Bulldog at our house for 3 days while we were on vacation. Veronica is SO good with our dog Samantha! Samantha absolutely loves Veronica. She has dog sat for us several times since. She was always on time and made sure to do everything by our specifications. I would highly recommend Veronica to pet sit for anyone looking for a caring attentive pet sitter.

Laura did a great job of caring for our 2 dogs while we were away. She is always dependable to arrive at the specified times and went above and beyond what we asked her to do with them. It's such a comfort knowing she was there for our dogs when we were away.

I strive on dogs being obedient but tend to lean more towards the owner's willingness to learn. I believe that it is the owner's responsibility to spend time with their animal on a regular basis. Repetition is the key to success.

    I have a puppy, 4 mos old, basic obedience needed (and he is leash-aggressive so that's a focus area). Also, i have an almost two year old who i would want to add to the mix after the first few sessions, perhaps. Your thoughts? And how much does this cost?

    Nala is a very high energy dog. She is very good in the house for the most part except when new people come over she gets extremely excited. She is easily distracted outdoors and has a very poor recall command when we tell her to come back.
