  • Michelle Jackson, Dog Trainer

    (2 reviews)

    Every dog has his or her own personality and behaviors. Some are shy, some are full of themselves, some are energetic, some are couch potatoes, some are submissive and afraid, and some are overly dominant and a handful. During the training session, I consider factors such as your dog's temperament, breed, age, sex, general health, history, and drive. This information helps me to customize the session to address your particular dog's behavior concerns. Not only am I helping train your dog; most importantly, I am also training you to train your dog. Proper handling techniques make dog training much easier!

  • Reston Dog Trainer

    (1 reviews)

    Obedience training is fun and rewarding for you and your dog. It can enrich your relationship and make living together more enjoyable. A well-trained dog is more confident and can more safely be allowed a greater amount of freedom than an untrained one. Basic formal obedience training includes heeling on- and off-leash, sitting, laying down and calling back as well as appropriate reaction to normal situations involving crowds of people, strange noises, joggers, cars, other dogs, etc. I focus on teaching your dog to obey you, walk on a leash without pulling, heel, sit, stay, lay down, and come on "recall" command. I do not use any electronic devices such as electronic collars, e-collars, shock collars or prongs. Dogs are sensitive creatures, and it is very easy to break their spirit through the use of negative correction or improper training tools. I support positive training techniques using treats and praise. I advocate more frequent short trainings in order to accomplish your goals and respect your pet. Dogs I have trained for obedience, tracking and protection have passed exams such as BH, FH1, FH2, SCHH1, and IPO. I have been a member of several European Obedience Clubs and German Shepherd Association including the Czech Rescue Brigade. If you are interested, please send me an email, and I will be happy to answer any of your questions or set up a meeting. Thank you, and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

I just can't get enough of them. I'm looking to earn some extra income while working at the kennel and also putting myself through school, so every little bit helps.

  • Andrew's Dog Walking

    Growing up, I had a Labrador Retriever that I personally trained, groomed, and looked after. As time went by, I got another dog, a miniature Schnauzer Chihuahua, whom I also cared for. My experiences with my own pets led me to being able to care for others pets. I am a trusted pet care provider because I am able to work with many breeds, and I care for others' pets like I would care for my own. I understand the importance of a pet in an individual's or a family's life and respect the bond between the pet and the owner. The care I provide allows for the pets to maintain their health (or aid in the increase of their health) and be taken care of. I love playing, walking, training, and grooming dogs, and I hope to work with you and your pet!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Drawing Lessons Dallas!!

(4 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I enjoy drawing so much because it not only expands my skill but also my creativity. It pushes my mind to its limit. Trying to create something from my imagination from a picture that I have found is sometimes quite difficult, but in the end, it is so rewarding knowing that I tried no matter how hard it is. I really want to help people be able to express themselves, their emotions, their thoughts or whatever they have going on through their artwork. Art is self-expression. I do my best to dig to the deepest part of the minds of my customers in order to make them realize that they are great if they are just willing to put in the work and the effort to get to where they want to be. It may take a long time. It may seem like an impossible road and something that they can’t achieve, but what you can and can’t achieve is only a concept in your mind.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My inspiration is learning. I love learning so much that I will do anything to learn. Teaching is simply another way of me learning more about people and different perspectives and evolving myself while helping somebody else evolve. Seeing progress in people and the mind-set they begin to build when they see the progress themselves is truly rewarding. There is nothing like it. I want no credit whatsoever. I just want to share my experience to those who really need it and who are happy to receive it without judgement.
