Jody came over for our first session last night and it was wonderful! She took all the time we needed to talk through a variety of dog behavioral topics, answering all our questions and giving us a lot of advice, including advice outside of the scope of basic training or what we had discussed initially. She brought interactive food dispensing toys to show us, gave us handouts of what we talked about, and showed us how to work on specific commands, coaching us through it. Jody also educated us on a lot of different ways to ensure our dog is safe, healthy, and mentally/physically stimulated - I really appreciated how we looked at how to care for and work with our dog on the whole, not simply to teach commands. The entire session was so helpful to us, and Jody was a pleasure to work with! We're excited for either more one-on-one sessions and/or a class with Social Tailwaggers!

I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.

Orla took care of our cat for a week while we were away and she was fantastic! She first visited to meet all of us and learn as much as possible about the kitty, and she shared her approach to working with pets and specially cats. Her daily reports while cat sitting were terrific, with a summary of each visit, pictures and videos, and also comments and observations on our kitty’s daily behavior, mood, eating, and litter box habits. I’ll definitely hire Orla again!

WOW!! I never thought it would be possible, but Nick and friends at Off Leash K9 Training did it! They made our 55+ pound bluetick coonhound mix a part of the family. From counter-surfing and unwanted roughhousing, to chewing up everything in sight and bolting out of the house whenever she got the chance (even pushing kids down to escape)--Juno did it all. But when we saw the first video update during the two-week board and train, we couldn't believe we were looking at the same dog...and that was on day two! Since we picked her up a week ago, she has been nothing if not polite, well-behaved, and a new best friend. She obeys our commands with little to no correction, and she can finally go for walks down to the park at the end of the street and even accompany the kids to the bus stop--all without a leash! We are so much happier, and more importantly, so is Juno. No more leashes for that kid! Thanks Nick!

I can not say enough positive things about the excellent service, training, and support I have received from Haywood and his team. Background: I rescued an almost 3yr old neutered male GSD in December. My husband and I have breed experience so I was hoping that we'd be able to improve some of his problematic behaviors (barking, poor socialization, very territorial, and disordered pack mentality) and then join a group class. We quickly figured out that the behaviors were not related to bonding to us and his new GSD sister but rather that was just him. So we started looking at private lessons. When I arrived at Academy, I wasn't sure what to expect. Alexa and Adrianna started our evaluation. Haywood joined us half way through and it worked out perfectly that he did because the team was able to observe my dog's reaction to someone entering "his" territory and his reaction to men - both of which were significant. At the end of the evaluation, Haywood and Alexa provided their recommendation for training - private lessons to start with a transition to group classes for a fixed fee. My dog would learn multiple commands and how to be around other dogs. Again, I can not stress enough how economical Academy ended up being. It took us a little longer than the average client to be ready for group classes. If I'd had to pay per lesson at the market rate in this area, it would have cost DOUBLE. Seriously...I did the math. Three weeks ago, my previously barky, somewhat aggressive, territorial GSD graduated from Academy with the highest test score of his group. He didn't make a peep. He recognizes the humans in our home as alphas. He is able to walk on a leash in our neighborhood without lunging at other dogs...in fact, he was steady as a rock last week while a neighbor's small dog was barking up a storm. I honestly feel like Academy Dog Training saved my dog's life. If his behavior had continued to escalate, he eventually would have hurt someone and been euthanized. Haywood's method was exactly what my dog needed and Alexa (our primary trainer for private lessons) got to know both my dog and myself. There were days I was prepared to give up and without her encouragement, support, and knowledge were invaluable.

We have hired Jen's to walk our dogs daily and so far it is fabulous just having the piece of mind knowing our dogs don't have to be in the house all day while we are at work.

Sherri cared for my dogs while I had to be out of town. When we (my three large dogs and I!) first met her I could tell she was a real dog person and they liked her right away. She did a great job and I will definitely call her again

Good Dog Pet Care is wonderful! We are experienced dog owners but our latest rescue turned out to be a "dominant" dog & we had no experience with that. Alex saved the day (& the dog)! His knowledge of animal behavior is superior & he taught us so much. His dog walking service is also superior. His employees all share his love of dogs, are prompt & reliant, & our dog always returns happy & tired! All I have to say is "Alex is coming" & she sits @ the front door waiting for him, without moving, until he gets here. It is very obvious how much Fiona loves Alex! We have used Alex's services for over a year now & couldn't be happier. Right now Alex & his dog Hank are staying @ our house for 2 weeks while we are on vacation. We are truly relaxed knowing that Alex is there & Fiona is happy & content. You will not regret using Alex!
