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.
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!!
Brian was great. He really helped us get in the right mindset for training our dog. The clicker experience was new to us, but our dog took to it quickly and we started seeing results from the very first session. Thank you Brian, for helping us learn to communicate with Logan!
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.
Personal dog training, having a hard time house training following her method 2 days saw 95% decrease in accidents have seen one since, obedience training going well
Jane is an excellent dog trainer, although I believe she helped me more than my crazy wheatie. I was really impressed with how much knowledge she has and patience. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. She showed me some tools I can use to use while training my puppy. You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!
Best trainer ever!!!! My puppy and I had so much fun with today's training!!! We're learning so many new things and at the same time having a blast!!! Never thought dog training could be this much fun! 🙉
As the mom of two border collies, I want to make certain my kids are in the best of care. I have an older dog (13) and a rambunctious puppy (9 months). Danielle is responsible, kind, flexible, understands neurotic dog moms and based on the photos I receive from the dog park - fun! A five paw rating from our family!
She really helped with training my dog Bailey.
Lara did a great job and has won my dog's confidence.
We had Vivian come to help us with our new dog, Max. We adopted him. He is 2-3 years of age. In just one lesson she taught us how to walk him so that he knows we are the Alpha. When my husband walked him this way for the first time, Max got it imm
I met holly and she was very nice and professional. I haven't used her service yet, but when I need to I defintintly will call perfect pet sitting and dog walking
Kathy responded to my request very quickly. she immediately answered all the questions I had, and was very pleasant to talk to. she is very knowledgeable on the information I needed. she gave clear instructions that were simply to follow, and techniques that will help me in training my pet. I would highly recommend anyone who is in need of an excellent trainer to contact her.
Highly recommend this dog groomer excellent work very Professional I will tecommed to all my friends
I have attended her puppy training classes and they are fabulous. I am a lot cal pet sitter and send clients to her. I have also daughter advice from her in situations I have encountered and her advice was certainly excellent and helpful. I will continue to refer clients to her for dog training.
Joyce did an amazing job with our two dogs, Dicey & Tipper. Before we sent them to her, walking them was nearly impossible. Joyce worked her magic and got them to walk side by side with no leash-pulling. She is an extremely knowledgeable dog trainer and is very patient. Our dogs love her! The best is that she sends daily pictures and updates. We know that our dogs are well cared for and loved when they go to Joyce. I highly recommend her for both dog-sitting and dog-training. Thank you Joyce!
Gail was an absolute pleasure. Delightful personality, caring and most responsible.What a relief to find such an exceptional dog walker who also managed to give me some very helpful tips for my dog. Mirna
Dave has been fantastic! I recently adopted a small dog who had been abused and is very afraid of men, and Dave has already made significant progress with him after only two sessions. Dave teaches through positive reinforcement and the reward system, and my dog has already learned so much. It is really helpful that he is able to come to my home to do the training. He does a fantastic job of communicating to me what he is doing, so that I am also learning so much about how to communicate with my dog to keep the learning process going. We are currently doing an hour long session twice a week, but Dave gave me a few options that he thought would work best. Highly recommend!
We have a 5 month old Goldendoodle that is a bundle of energy. Needed help with housebreaking, obedience, crating and leash walking. Marti assessed our dogs behavior and was confident she could work with her. We opted to send our dog with Marti for a 10 day boot camp and board her at her home. When our dog Harley came home Marti discussed all facets of her training and took the time to teach us hand commands and the proper cue technique to continue reinforcing what she has learned. Harley is 10 times more obedient, is a pleasure to walk, sits, stays and lays down on command. I highly recommend Marti for her knowledge and training skills. If you want a dog that you can be proud of give Marti a try you'll be glad you did!
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!!
