They are wonderful! My dog has never liked being boarded, but with A Paw Above, it's like summer camp for her. She loves it! Gretchen is so easy to work with and so accommodating. I can't imagine having anyone else care for my dog.
I have a small 9 year old dog and had the pleasure of having Brian Sugerman help me understand her behavior as she has gotten older. Brian is soothing, gentle and very professional. We started in March of 2015 and had Brian work with our baby for six weeks. Brian perfomed training at our home and was prompt and always very pleasant.I was amazed at the technique that he used and the actual results we saw in our dog. Brian took the time to explain what clicker training is and how effective and successful it has been. Our baby had an immediate response to Brian and he was able to correct the issues that concerned us. We highly recommend Brian for your dog training.
Cliff has the perfect demeanor for being a dog training specialist....both calm and assertive (with pets and their owners haha). When we first met Cliff in 2009 we had a newly adopted 8 week old puppy with a lot of negative puppy behaviors. So many skittish, destructive and biting behaviors though that we were advised by two other trainers and a couple of family members to "give her back" to the pound and that she would be a potentially dangerous family dog to keep around and "unpredictable" around young children. Cliff provided puppy training to us over the course of several months and helped shape Maya into a more mellow young dog that year. After we had our son, Cliff returned to help make sure the transition went smoothly, that our dog Maya would know her place and be safe around the new baby, including practicing walking Maya next to the stroller and wagon and anything that could potentially make Maya react negatively. Cliff was fantastic and Maya has been an awesome family dog these past 7 years. Great on long car trips, mellow and tolerant of kid grabs on ears and tails, never growls or snaps when our 6 year old son or other small children would jump around her or touch her treats or food. We are so grateful that Cliff saved her from the pound round 1. Then after moving away to the D.C. area, and visiting our parents back in South Florida, Maya had a negative experience at a dog boarding facility in Palm Beach Gardens. She had been attacked (unprovoked at her last stay at a Dog boarding facility in Virginia requiring stitches, etc.) and we didn't realize that she had probably also been traumatized by this event and her next experience at a dog daycare might not be as enjoyable for her. She got into an altercation with another dog and one of the daycare handlers and was kicked out of the facility never allowed to return. I was told by the trainer there that it is "sad when a good dog goes bad". I was devastated!! Cliff came to the rescue again. He offered to immediately pick her up from me and board her for a few days while I visited with my parents and to train her while boarding and see if he could correct some of those nervous and potentially aggressive behaviors. He helped her work through some of those issues and took her into the community interacting with other people and dogs and she returned to us quite happy and like herself again. We are so grateful to have found Cliff 7 1/2 years ago and because of him we have the best, most gentle family dog we could imagine. SO glad he saw the potential in Maya and helped us through those negative behaviors!!
Franco is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is amazing with my pit mix. His training is not only with the dog but with the owners as well. His knowledge is second to none and there were immediate results after the first lesson. After week 2 we have seen DRASTIC positive results. I recommend Franco to any and everyone who has any time of behavioral or psychological issues with their dog. He is the guy to fix the problems.
Lara was great with our mini Aussie. She showed up in the time frame that I requested and always spent the full time with our dog. She would walk her as well as play with her which is exactly what we wanted. I would totally recommend her!
Very knowledgeable about unruly rescue young dog. Helpful advices. With construction going on in yard, they were able to board and train my puppy, who is so loveable but very energetic, and constant barking at construction activity. When I called for assistance, she came right away to pick up my puppy and board him so I could finish the construction in the yard without upsetting him.
They came out and really made me feel comfortable with training my dogs .They explained every thing was no rush answered all questions.
I have a blue Weimaraner who weighed 65 lbs by 1 year old. She had trouble with impulse control and constantly pulled when walking her. Every person and dog we encountered was her new BFF! I am petite and had trouble keeping her from jumping on passers by and from being dragged down the street. Brianna walked my dog and taught me techniques and gave me the tools to train my large puppy. It took a while to train my willful and high energy dog but I can now safely walk my full grown Weim, confident that we will enjoy our walk. Brianna is wonderful with animals, has a gift for working with dogs and training both the dog’s behavior and people on how to train their dog. Brianna is caring, knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. in my opinion, her fees are very affordable. She has also helped me through my dog’s skin rash issues by recommending skin remedies which have been helpful as I do not like giving her antibiotics. I cannot say enough good things about Brianna and highly recommend her. She has been my Dog Whisperer for the past 2 years!
A very nice team of professional dog walkers who take care of my two adult dogs and puppy Highly recommend them
Linda Greenfield is an exceptional dog trainer with a keen understanding of canine behavior and family dynamics. She is an amazing teacher and handler and I would recommend her to anyone interested in learning the art of dog training and how to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Dog training has never been so much fun and rewarding. Thanks Linda!
We have hired Susan a few times to care for our dog, Carmel. We love her friendly and positive attitude. Love the pictures she sends of Carmel when we are away!
Excellent session for our puppies, she was at our house over an hour doing. FREE EVALUATION. We learned very helpful tools and couldn't be happier. Gisela is a compassionate and very professional trainer that really cares about the well being of your dog. You won't regret having her being your dog trainer!!!
I highly recommend working with Megan. Her compassion for dogs and upbeat nature made the training itself engaging and enjoyable for my one year old labradoodle! She always gave 110% to me and my dog, she is reliable, organized and most of all knowledgeable in the training and behavior of dogs.
Liecienda has been great as my dog sitter, and cared for my dog,"Roscoe" on numerous occasions. When I leave I know that my home is safe, well cared for, and Roscoe is in excellent hands. I find her extremely professional, and she has a great rapport with Roscoe. Roscoe is comfortable in her presence, and she works closely with me to be sure that Roscoe is comfortable in my absence. I would not hesitate to recommend Liecienda as a pet sitter.
So far he's gotten my dog to behave as expected
My puppy Skye loves Apryl so much
Melissa is fantastic. She loves dogs and treats them as if they her own. I have used her several times and I feel totally confident Madi is getting the best care. She sends pictures as well.
Eliza is amazing! She was so great with my dog and did a fabulous job!
Diego is very professional and has a wealth of knowledge about dog training. He was able to connect with my dog, lead him and have my dog follow his commands during the first training session. He was absolutely amazing with my dog. Diegos time was worth every minute. I recommend him to anyone who would like to get their dog trained.
I walk dogs weekly and provide dog sitting as well. I know how to handle any size dog, from a yorkie to a pitbull. I've had dogs my whole life, so I know how to handle any situation, even a dog fight, which I've dealt with numerous times.
At D.O.G, we understand that when you get home from work everyday, you are exhausted and just want to kick back and relax before bed. However, if you have a dog that sat at home all day, cooped up and waiting for you to return, you cant, because your dog needs a walk and some attention and play. With that in mind, we founded D.O.G for you and your pet so you can each lead happy and healthy lives together, so come and open a membership with us and experience all the wonders for your dog that we have to offer.
