I think she is great. Our first visit was canceled due to an unforseen situation of my husband was on life support fighting for his life, but it did not stop her from answering my questions regarding my dog's behavior. She is caring and cares about what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Suki is great! She is very flexible and absolutely loved animals! She is gentle and watchful. She walked the dogs in the park and several times during the day, fed them and spent good quality time with them. They clearly loved her too.

Being a first time puppy owner Suzanne taught me many great techniques while working with our puppy. She also gave me great feedback and advice on training our puppy. She showed me that with patience and constant practice our puppy's behavior will get better. Thank you for your knowledge.

we recently got a new 3.5 month old frenchie who is just so adorable but had some habits set in, from her litter buddies. we contacted karin for help on where to begin and how to train our frenchie into the city lifestyle. our first meeting with karin, opened up our eyes on some bad habits that we didn’t know we were promoting with our puppy. karin was thorough in explaining puppy behavior and how our frenchie understands our body language. yesterday was our third meeting with karin and beau (our frenchie) is very much familiar with the emergency recall, sit, sit with stay, come, down, crate, walking on a loose leash, behaving appropriately with other dogs (our older frenchie) and potty training. also, karin has been available through text at all times during the day and night. she likes to know when beau has done something good or bad at the time it happens, so that any bad learning can be addressed immediately. we are so thankful for meeting karin and can’t wait for our next sessions.

Robin has been helping us train our one year old puppy, Bernie, for a few months now and the results have been outstanding. Robin is very professional and always comes prepared for every session, even bringing the treats for training. Not only does Robin come to help us train our dog , but she also supplied us with literature and information to help us teach our 8 year old daughter to recognize the moods and behaviors of all dogs. Additionally, Robin always makes time for any questions and concerns that we may have, either during training or with a quick text or email in between sessions. Robin is a pleasure to work with and our dog Bernie Is always excited to see her when she comes for training. We highly recommend Robin to all who may need her services. Thanks so much. From Bob, Jen and Eva, East Haven CT.

Joyce has very easy training methods. She has showed me techniques that have improved my bulldog's behavior. My English bulldog has come a long way with her help. My bulldog is more obedient towards me and less jumpy. I would definitely recommend Joyce to others that looking for a dog trainer.

We are so happy to have met Debbie! She is an absolute pleasure. She helped me and my fiancee learn how to be the best owners to our new puppy Bodie. She truly cares for each animal she works with and wants the best for both owner and dog. Being a pretty anxious person, Debbie was so patient and helpful. She never left without us fully understanding what is expected and always made sure we could do it on our own. She is a fabulous trainer and person. She even gave us great tips for healthy homemade treats for our dog. I would recommend her 1000 times over to anyone who is looking for help with their dog, new or old.

Gus gave us excellent advice and educated us so that we better understand our dog's behavior. Our rotties responded very well to him and his training techniques and we are continuing to work on training them ourselves. I am more confident now, that we can do this! Thank you Gus!

Rick and his team were great. They took our 10 year old dog with some aggressive and defiant behavior for a week and worked with him. We then had Rixk come and train us so that we could help modify his behavior. It is a difficult process but Rick used clear and easy commands to help us learn. Rick was also willing to answer questions in between sesssions and always got back to us quickly.

I could not have asked for better cat sitters! They are professional, kind and are very obviously real animal lovers. Because Jorge is a vet tech I felt comfortable leaving my sick cat with him for a few days and having him administer fluids and medicines. They have reasonable prices and I totally trusted them in my home. Both jorge and another employee even took it upon themselves to FaceTime me so I could say hi to my babies.

I can't say enough amazing things about Susan Gray at Bone-afied. My dogs love her and so do my husband and I. She is kind, caring and works so well with our dogs. She has boarded and trained them and we had so much progress with our dogs. Our little guy kept having accidents, Sue fixed that! Both dogs have learned good behavior and manners. We will keep coming back! Also, while you are away, Sue keeps you up to date with pictures and details about your dogs which was so important for us. Thanks again Sue, se you soon!

Jolean was great! Our Bichon, Mustang, had a great time with her and he learned so much. He came back a new dog, with all of his bad (mischievous) behaviors fixed.

Terri was terrific. Cooper, our 18 month old golden retriever, and I did a series of lessons. We were able to schedule at a time convenient for us. Cooper really bonded with Terri, and his behavior is greatly improved. She gave me a lot of tips to try, most I'd never heard of. I highly recommend Beyond Borders Training!
