Bob came over and gave a great opening, getting our husky Cody to settle while he introduced his enrichment style of training which is different than traditional training methods. Bob had no problem pouring out his extensive knowledge in one session, notably some tips from dog training conferences he goes to and books he reads. He's up to date in the world of dog training, but also knows the history of training and how we, as dog owners, need to let go of certain negative training practices. Our husky responded to Bob's leadership immediately. We wanted Bob to help us with our dog's resource guarding behavior towards other dogs, how to walk on a lead and respond to us as the leaders. Bob showed us the ropes and gave us the knowledge and advice that we need to enrich our relationship with our husky and still get the training results we want. He brought up well researched alternatives for our dog activities that we would've never thought to do. He also pointed out behaviors of our dog that we didn't notice, such as disguised anxiety signals and how to resolve them. OVERALL, WE THINK BOB IS AWESOME AND WE'RE SO THANKFUL FOR HOW CHEAP HIS RATE IS!!! Absolutely worth it.
We have two dogs that are in the training class and we are very happy with the progress they are making. She provides group attention and one on one training when needed.
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!
Ron Pfierman saved the life of my niece's puppy, Daisy. We are so thankful for Ron and what he did for Daisy. We are a family of dogs. I have 2, our mom has 2 and our dad has 3 and Tracey has Daisy. We just couldn't consider putting a family member down unless there were no other option. Ron was our only option and he saved Daisy's life. He does not know this - but in our household's, Ron is known as Uncle Ron. Out of the kindness of his heart and his love for dogs, he took on our little Cujo. He did not do this as a business person. He probably lost money on little Daisy because of the amount of effort he had to put into rehabilitating her. I would recommend Ron to anyone for any dog training. Not just special cases. He helped me with my dogs . Not only did he save Daisy's life, he has taught me to be a better dog owner. I learned things from just watching him work with my dogs. Thank you, again, Uncle Ron. Sincerely - Jamie, Tracey, Brooke, Daisy, Lily and Moose.
Joe is great at what he does, very knowledgeable and professional. He’s the dog whisperer. :)
Rayfield and Alpha Dog Academy was excellent. Full of knowledge and patient. He listened to our needs and designed a detailed prescription to help us and our Shepherd. I would highly recommend him!
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.
Eileen has worked on my horses and my dogs. All the animals love her! One of my horses injured himself in a pasture accident on his rear leg. He had a very deep cut. Eileen came to work on him once a month for several months. It really helped with his healing. You would never know how bad the injury really was except by the scar. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very helpful when your animals have health issues. She loves to share her knowledge.
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!!!!!
Though new to training as a business of her own she has trained dogs for years. She is knowledgeable, patient and calm a great combination for trading a Portugeese Water Dog. I am looking forward to a well trained dog though our relationship.
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!
With many years of experience in owning dogs of many different breeds and sizes, I can give the loving care that other pet owners would want for their pets. I bring positive energy, patience, and joy to the client's pet. The pet owner can expect their instructions to be followed and the pets to be cared for as my own.
I became an animal trainer because of my love for animals and also to help people communicate with their pets. I worked as a dog trainer for 2 years after I graduated from college. After that, I worked for a company that trains animals for television and does the live animal shows at Universal Studios. I have just recently moved home and would like to continue caring for animals and helping owners understand their pets. I can pet sit, dog walk, or help train any pet.
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!
I provide dog walking two to four times a day, daily feeding and overall tasks related to dog care when owners are out of town or if they just need someone to walk their pet for half an hour or so.
Hey! I do a lot of baby sitting and dog sitting. If you ever need a night or weekend out, I'm willing to come to you and watch your kids or pets.
I am a caring and professional dog groomer. I do bathing, nail clipping, ear cleaning, anal gland expressing and dog sitting. All dogs get walks at a fair price. I accept small and big dogs.
We work on dog training and behavior modification. We are specializing in private lessons. We have AKC CGC certification. Group lessons are also available. We also provide dog walking and boarding.
I am a private dog trainer, private groomer, and veterinary technician. I will take care of all your furry friends' needs, whatever they may be.
To be honest, I am not a professional dog walker, but I love animals. I have a pit bull, but she lives with my ex-husband, and I have had many of my daughter's pit bulls in my home. I have several granddogs, and they love me, so maybe you would be willing to give a true animal lover a try.
