Bob is helping us in training our dog who is a rescue. Our dog is very timid, (seems like he was abused previously). Bob has been very patient and has made strides in the behavior of our new family member. He explains what/why he, (Bob) is doing. Bob knows his profession and we are happy with him.
We had an amazing experience working with Michele. She is very experienced, professional, and showed up on time. She expresses clear knowledge of training dogs. Her method of training is to not only instill appropriate behavior in a dog, but to ensure that the dog's owners understand the training process and are able to follow through so they can continue to work with the dog without a trainer present. Michele helped our dog, Lulah, work on her growling and barking at houseguests. We highly recommend Michele/Awesome n Pawsome to ever pet owner!
We have been working with Shelby now for a few months. She has done a great job helping us work with our Australian Shepherd (a two-year old male recent rescue). We have taught him basic commands, how to walk on leash, how to greet people when they come to the house and many other things. As dog owners, Shelby has taught us how to be in charge of our dog and as a result he is much calmer and better behaved. We would describe her style of training as positive reenforcement with mild verbal corrections when appropriate. Shelby has been great to work with and our dog has responded really well to her. Shelby has a lot of great skills and knowledge that she has shared with us. She is also creative and willing to think outside the box when something we try with our dog does not work. The cost is very reasonable and we have seen immediate and continued improvement in our dog's behavior. We highly recommend her.
Excellent follow up, very comfortable with my dog, easy to work with. Amanda is experienced and professional.
Sandi really listens to you & your needs. Then addresses them with positive training. Very knowledgeable!
Brandy is patient with my labs. They are older dogs who were in serious need of training. I had thought all hope was lost but not so! They are following directions, playing well together and I can open my door without a scene. This happened with simple commands and patience. Brandy had to teach US how to be dog parents and lead our dogs. Still a work in progress but we can see positive results. Thank you!!!!!
A balanced dog is a happy dog. To balance your dog, it needs not only care but long for what you educate, socialize and train. It's never too early or too late for you to teach your dog some tricks. The benefits you will gain will be invaluable as training serves as mental stimulation for the dog and often to the owner himself. It will help you meet your dog and strengthen the relationship you have with him. In addition, you'll be surprised at how quickly your dog can learn if you do it properly and positively.

I love dogs! I've owned several different breeds throughout my life and will never be without one or two. I know how positive feedback behavior works and use this method with my dogs.

As a founding member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (A.P.D.T.) all of the lessons are based on positive reinforcement training. No use of choke chains nor prong collars.

I am a young lady who loves pets. I am an animal lover. I love to be around dogs and care for them. I have two dogs of my own, and I will treat your dog like one of my own.
I am the ideal pet owner who has enough generosity to help others. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are my specialty. Big or little, I can clean it up. I have insight on emotional behaviors and am an expert on healthy lifestyle.
Hello. I'd love to watch and walk your animals! I am an animal lover and have two pets of my own (a cat and dog). I believe that pets take a big part of our lives and feel that they deserve the best care. I've taken a pet care course. This course taught me how to care, walk and feed animals properly. I also care for my own animals, and I used to walk my neighbor's 5 dogs from Delaware. Unfortunately, I moved away from the state and could no longer do it. My schedule is very flexible since I do online schooling. I also volunteer at Hope Hospice on Thursdays. Transportation is not an issue either. Please let me know if you feel that I meet your qualifications. Thank you!
There is nothing more enjoyable to me than spending time with a furry friend! I love animals and will always be excited to meet another dog that I get to take care of!
