We were so happy with our results with her not only did she come early to our scheduled appointment in their home but she was loving and caring knowing that we had a rescue dog and made my husband and I feel very very comfortable knowing that her dog was in good hands. We would definitely recommend her to anyone

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.

Joyce is fantastic!! My husband and I had a three-month old wheaten terrier puppy when we hired Joyce. We were looking for help with potty training, basic obedience, leashing walking and helping our little guy become a part of our family. We cannot say enough positive things about what Joyce and her training methods have done for us. Our puppy was at ease immediately with Joyce and loves his training sessions. He has come leaps and bounds in his training using her easy to follow methods and improves after every session. After a few short months, he follows commands, is almost house broken and actually listens to us now! Joyce is professional, flexible with scheduling, kind, and very affectionate with our puppy. It's obvious how much she is a natural with animals. We also use Joyce for boarding when traveling. We are confident that our puppy is in safe, capable and loving hands when he spends time at Joyce's house with her (and Corcega!). She'll even send photos, videos and multiple daily calls and texts with updates for you, the individual service she provides for your pup is so much better than doggie daycare. If you are looking for a dog trainer, dog walker or a happy place for your dog when you're away on vacation, we highly recommend Joyce and her services to any dog owner.

When I found Christine on Thumbtack, I was at the end of my rope. My boyfriend and I had adopted a 1 year old American bulldog mix from a rescue in NY and were having trouble getting him to listen to us or bond with us, were experiencing a lot of behavioral issues and even some aggression and were considering bringing him back because we felt we were in over our heads. We had reached out to the rescue we adopted him from for help finding a trainer and they kept blowing us off. The rescue claimed to have spent donor money on his training, but all he had really learned was how to get treats and would not even do basic commands like sit or stay if food wasn't in the picture. Finally, in desperation, I googled dog trainers in my area and thumbtack popped up. I filled out a form and within minutes I received a reply from Christine DiCarlo at Canine Communications. I emailed her and she said I could call her any time so I did so immediately. Over the phone she could sense how desperate I felt and she drove an hour to come meet with us. She immediately assessed the situation and explained to me what was going on and how to fix it. We have been working with her for about 6 weeks and both humans and dogs are doing much better and have settled into our new lives. We even adopted another rescue puppy and Christine told me exactly how to introduce the pup to the dog and the home, thus saving us future problems. There have been a couple of desperate phone calls to Christine and every time I'm freaking out, she talks me off the ledge and everything settles back down. Without Christine, I don't think we would have gotten through the rough patches. She has trained me in what to do to have well behaved and secure dogs and in how to read my dogs because before her, I have to admit, I was clueless and an emotional wreck. We are all so lucky to have found her and her services. She really cares about us and our dogs, she knows what she's doing and she has saved my family and my sanity!

We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.

Sue Grey is a terrific trainer of dog, and a great teacher to us human owners as well. She is knowledgable, patient, consistent, and helps in developing a strong bond with your dog. I have found our sessions invaluable, especially for some persistent problems such as keeping the dog from jumping to people as soon as they enter the house, and keeping the dog from dragging me all over the neighborhood. She is very practical, and provides excellent feed-back. Highly recommended.

Debbie was wonderful! She clearly cares very much for dogs and it shows through her work. She’s very knowledgeable, helpful and sweet. We have worked with many different trainers and my pup was the most comfortable around Debbie. That’s the most important to me.

      I wouldn't trust anyone but Brandi to care for my 2 dogs while i'm away. She cared for my dogs like they were her own, took them on field trips, and kept me updated with photos of them.

      I highly recommend Sarah's Pet Sitting. I have used their services to walk my greyhound and Chinese Cresteds. They are always a pleasure to correspond with and my fur babies and not so fur babies ( hairless dogs) love them. I trust them in my home without reservation. My greyhound is a special needs animal and they are wonderful with him. Most recently I became mom to a beautiful Sphynx cat. My dog did not get along well with our new addition. So I hired their pet trainer to help with the adjustment and they are progressing nicely. Thank you Sarah! Cyndie- Meriden CT

      Gina has helped me both with an eight week basic training class for my reactive do. She has also helped me with issues I have had with my dog at home. She is always available for my questions and offers knowledgeable advice. Gina gives positive feedback and encouragement. My dog is a work in progress so I know I will continue to contact her in the future for help and suggestions.
