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.
Oh my goodness, where should I even begin?? Through an unfortunate set of circumstances I inherited a physically tiny but hugely horridly behaved Chihuahua, Bruxly. This little menace hated everything and I swear she came in like a guided missile set to destroy! She dug up my garden, jumped into the trash can and carried pieces off to all corners of the house, terrorized my other dog and you name it - she piddled on it. Mostly though, she really hated my husband. She'd come flying out of nowhere with a terrible screaming and just jump on him and then run away again. She was always very sweet with me and I loved her but I was just out of breath from the stress. My husband was yelling and threatening to leave, my poor dog Henrietta was a nervous wreck and I had already worked with 3 trainers who had basically tucked their tails and run when they met Bruxly... When I was connected with Kyli from Frontier K-9 Training it was like someone had given me CPR! She was so calm and knowledgeable and took the time to really explain to me why Bruxly was behaving this way and how we could change it. She helped me understand not only how to teach and use new good behaviors to replace the old naughty ones, but also how to modify Bruxly's environment and routine to break her out of old habits and encourage her into better ones. It's taken a fair bit of work but Kyli was so patient and kind, she was truly a miracle for my household! She clearly and thoroughly answered my endless questions and she was just wonderful with Bruxly and Henrietta. Her love of dogs and love of training and teaching are unmatched in any of the other trainers I worked with or spoke to. Her diverse background and experience in dog (and people!) training give her a real advantage, whether it's teaching basic obedience behaviors or evaluating and fixing problem behaviors.... She helped us with it all! I'm just so grateful to have met and worked with Kyli, my home is finally a more peaceful place again. I'm confident I can continue to help Bruxly make good choices and I know if I need any help or advice Kyli will be there for us. I highly recommend Frontier K-9 Training, I could not be happier with my experience!
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!

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. I was very taken with her kind professional business tactics, animal knowledge,...compation..., and all the services she had to offer. You can be sure I wouldn't let 'just anybody' be responsible for my 2 little buddies !!! 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.
Aurora is diligent and very sweet, and our dogs seemed relaxed around her from the get go. She is also formally educated in, and trained on, animal behavior. Her prices are extremely reasonable as well!
Amanda is amazing with animal needs and wants! I have seen her with her own animals dogs to cats to chickens, and she is always great with them!
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.
My dog did two weeks of full immersion training. I absolutely love the progress my dog has made working with Victoria! She took my hyperactive pup and turned him into a well behaved dog. Not only did I love her my dog did too. She taught my dog behavioral manners and the training has allowed me to feel comfortable inviting people in to my house as wells as made me feel more comfortable taking him in public. Since my dog is a medium sized dog, before she worked with him I was afraid to have him around small children and other people because I was afraid he would jump on them and knock him down. Now that he has completed his training program I can trust my dog around children of ages and trust that he will not be a nuisance to people coming into the home. I 100% recommend Victoria and I can't wait to do more training in the future!

I am an animal lover, and I love spending time with animals. Animals are great companions for people.
So my dog has been experiencing some slight dog aggression on our walks. I called Patrice and she was very good about getting back to me and getting something set up. She is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and assessing what the actual problem was. I have only had 2 sessions, but I am feeling very confident that with her training we are going to have much happier walks! I highly recommend her services!
We developed a plan to help socialize, my fearful Duchshound, that will help her be a better citizen in the household.
Robbin loves dogs, and they love her! She sizes up the reasons behind troubling dog behavior and has good advice for how to retrain the dog. She is warm and personable - I highly recommend her!

Lexi is reliable, prompt to communicate, easy to talk with, and utterly committed to my dog. As well, I have learned from her behavioral strategies that make my sometimes aggressive and anti-social dog much smoother with other dogs...........what a gift!
