We had Maureen come by to help us have one of our dogs learn to get through the doggy door. She is scared of doors because of her incident as a puppy before we adopted her. Maureen was very patient and understanding and showed us how to work with our dog's fear of doors. It is an ongoing process... may take months... but Maureen keeps texting me with new ideas on how to train our dog get past her fear. I would recommend her for any kind of dog training.

I had the wonderful privilege of working with Todd at South Orlando Dog Training. He did an amazing job with our two dogs Sheldon & Tiffany. It was amazing to see him work directly with the animals. What a patient, peaceful instructor... with the humans too.

I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.

I used Canine Connection for training my Chihuahua Bandit as a puppy. Chelsea helped me to get him socialized and have amazing manners right away. I was incredibly happy with the training she provided and very sad to lose her when I moved to another state. Though I like my new trainer in my new state, nothing compares to what Chelsea was able to teach me and accomplish during our sessions. I wish I could have moves her with me so she could help bandit continue his doggy education under her skillful direction.

Rose is amazing! She has been working my 8 month old beagle. Rose has been working w/ us on leash training, sit, stay, come, not jumping and has really helped w/ the nipping and biting. I highly recommend her for anyone that needs dog training. She is worth every penny.

Tampa Pet Sitters (TPS) is wonderful! They are always on time and flexible to the owner's schedules. They treat your pet as their own and I feel very comfortable knowing my animal is being cared, schedule changes can be made and that my home is also cared for during visits. The owner of the company delivers amazing customer service, regardless if it's a phone call, an email or a posting through the very easy to use website. Always timely and puts the customer first! Lastly, TPS publishes wonderful updates to pet sitting and things to consider for your personal sitter. Love that they remind me to leave old towels accessible during rainy season to keep my dog and home clean.

We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.

Our dog has severe fear aggression, he will attack anything that is strange to him including people and other dogs. We tried PetCo and another trainer and had no luck. Von Asgard helped our dog. It took a lot of hard work and time but he is much more controlled and confident. He still has much work ahead of him, but the improvement is promising. The location is outdoor cages with indoors at night. When we dropped our dog off at first, I was very skeptical and concerned that it wasn't going to help. I am proud to say they were wonderful, did what they promised, and kept us up to date on his progress.

Quinn worked with one of my daily dog walking clients, Blue. Blue is 130+lbs of pure muscle and strength at the young age of 9mths. He did not walk well on his leash, was reactive to other dogs when on leash and had major issues with lunging at box trucks and other animals. After spending two weeks in Board & Train with Quinn, Blue’s behavior has completely changed! He walks effortlessly on his leash with his head held high. He no longer reacts to other leashed dogs nor does he lunge at animals or box trucks! Quinn was willing to work with myself and the sitter I have assigned to Blue’s daily walks to ensure a smooth transition. Quinn is extremely skilled and very professional. I highly recommend his services to my clients on a regular basis.

I have dealt with many animals along my journey, and so far, there has not been one that I couldn't rehabilitate. I have taken cat killers and turned them into cat cuddlers and unruly pups to respectable dogs. You may have tried the rest; now, try the best!
