Excellent. Professional, arrives on time, works well with my dog and myself. He has given me SO much insight as to my dog's behavior and why she acts the way she does. I understand my dog better now. Love that he writes "homework" for us so I can refer back to that. Also if I run into a problem with my dog between sessions, he promptly texts me back and tells me how to correct the behavior (or how I should be responding to my dog). A+ highlt recommend Cliff! 😊

We have a 7 mth old Boston Terrier (Lucy). I've had the pleasure of having Brian teaching me and helping me to understand her good and bad behavior. Brian's technique is great and helpful. He is professional and knowledgeable. Brian is still working with Lucy and she's still in training, but her progress is terrific. Brian is performing training on site/at our home and always prompt and flexible to schedule and reschedule as needed. Brian explains in detail about the click and treat method which is very effective. Lucy is very responsive to Brian's training and his method is extremely successful! I highly recommend Brian for helping/training the owners to understand their dogs behavior and for any additional help with dog training.

We've had one session with spencer (my dog), and the impact on the dog's behavior is amazing. Unfortunately because of scheduling issues on my part we could not meet again, I am looking forward to resume the training this coming Sunday as my schedule opens up. Really effective.

Jose was perfect, very knowledgeable about the behavior of dogs. Patient , understanding and seemed extremely educated on his career.. Was at a loss about what to do with my dog but he gave me the confidence to understand the behavior and taught me how to deal with it. I am sure with time all he showed me will give my dog the understanding to know that not all people are cruel. Thank you Jose you really understood my issues

Wendy understands dogs and knows how to get the best behavior out of each individual dog (working with their needs and personality, and at their level). Not only were the classes straight forward with a positive approach but Wendy demonstrated time and time again she cares about dogs. My puppy was a rescue one and had a traumatic experience outside of class and Wendy went above and beyond to get Gemma back on track before the end of the puppy classes. She is personable and practical, and always willing to answer questions and provide help. This class has been a very positive experience, and I appreciate her care, knowledge and expertise with my Chihuahua. Nesira Baker, Gemma's owner

Joyce is a wonderful, kind and knowledgeable dog sitter. Of course I was hesitant at first, the thought of leaving my boy(dog) with anyone else made me nervous, but the minute I met Joyce I felt completely at ease. She was attentive, playful and kind to Kobe and most importantly, her house was spotless!! The animals are given the run of her home with designated areas for sleep time (some even with her!) She offered me training tips in a few areas we were having difficulty. While we were apart, Joyce sent regular texts and videos of Kobe!! My family could not have been more pleased with her care and service while we were away from Kobe! We highly recommend her and already have a date scheduled with Joyce for our next vacation. Kobe is excited to go back and see Joyce and new friends!!!

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!

Mr. Otazo has been training my 8 month old (huge) puppy for about 4 weeks now, and I am so thankful for have coming across such a caring company as Atazo Animal Services is. I have met most of the employees and they are all so kind to Kane as well as I. Kane is very happy to have them around, he is not easy one and they have had all the patience in the world to help Kane become the best version of himself.

Fluffy Day's Out is a very serious company. Sandra the owner took care of my cat when I was on vacation. She did an amazing job! She sent me pictures and videos of my baby every time she went! She has a great understanding of the cat behavior which is not very usual. We found back our baby well nourished happy and she wasn't mad at us! Truly recommend them!

I have been taking classes from Dan Ratay with American Idogs since the summer of 2010. I had tried several other dog training classes, but they were always repetitive and dull after awhile. Daniel introduced me to clicker training which was new to me at the time, and it turned out to be a very useful tool. He uses only positive reinforcement (something else that set him apart from the other classes I looked into). How can I take the same class for 2 years now?? Many of his students are returning students session after session, because we always learn something new. Each class is built upon the basics we have learned, but always has a challenging new twist to make it interesting, to keep us thinking, and to practice with the dogs at home. Also, what I really like about Daniel is that he covers the topic of dog behavior as well to help us understand and read our dogs better. We talk about how certain dogs react during class as examples to understand what he is talking about. By doing this, it allows us to apply what we are learning outside of class, where it really matters. And most of all, classes are FUN!!! It is an environment where we can feel free to ask questions because many times, other people can learn from them too. It is not competitive like some other dog training classes, and we are all there to help each other. Every time I go, I have fun and I know the dogs do too.

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.

Mona is a natural dog person who has added to her great instincts with lots of education about dogs and dog behavior. She immediately connected with my dog and was patient and also a good leader, and I could tell my pup was more confident and comfortable around her. I would trust Mona with my animals and I would recommend that others trust her, too. Your animals are in good hands with Mona!

I recently had Deanna from Wags to Wishes over to my home for daytime dog visits because I had to travel for work. I can't say enough wonderful things about her service! Deanna emailed me notes plus photos of my dogs each day she was at my house for daily dog walking. It was nice to be on the road for work yet be able to see that my dogs were so well taken care of. Deanna treats your pets like she would her own animals. I recommend Deanna highly! If you need dog waking or pet sitting services, she is your gal!!

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!

Kelly is fantastic. She is great with pups. She went out of her way to understand our Hound and helped us find a way to combat most of her negative behaviors. Tiger is a completely different dog after our sessions. My relationship with my pup has changed in the best way possible and I owe it to Kelly. Thank you!!
