Maureen was very professional and great at what she does. My 2 dogs, one is 5 and the other 4 loves Maureen. My 2 puppies were able to sit, go down, stay and go up in the first session. She's great! I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dog trainer.

David Ochoa, in my opinion, is probably one of the best dog trainers I have had the pleasure to work with. I have some physical limitations, that he was able to address & modify to my particular needs, while teaching me a different approach to train my 73 pound black lab mix named Churchill (he also helped me with my 13 pound dog, Winston). I had had several bad falls while walking Churchill. I desperately need help to stop Churchill lunging at barking aggressive dogs. David explained what I had to do, why I needed to think like an alpha canine, and how I was to implement the corrections with Churchill. David's knowledge about dogs is incredible; he truly understands what he is doing & his love of dogs is clearly seen. Just trust him and remember you must be the top dog in the house. I highly recommend David, as does my spouse! Already, after 2 days, I have gotten compliments on how good Churchill is behaving. David said I could call him at any time if I had any further questions about handling my dogs. He knows what he is doing!!

Andy was excellent and our family really liked onsite one on one training with our dog. We are on our way to a well behaved dog. :) Looking forward to joing the group lessons soon. Highly recommend Andy's help to anyone struggling with doggy behavioural issues.

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.

Someone once said "if I ask you to look after my dogs, even for 30 seconds, know that this is the biggest compliment I can give you." Tiki Time Pet Sitting has been walking my dogs daily for two years and staying with them when I need to be out of town. They are absolutely the best.

We adopted a very shy and undersocialized young dog from a local rescue. With training and group socialization led by Chelsea @ Canine Connection, we were able to transform into a confident and friendly little girl. We will always be grateful for the help she provided (and continues to provide) for us.

Sue was great to work with and immediately put our minds at ease from the first phone call. We are currently vacationing in the Bradenton area for the month of January and required a dog sitter during a day trip to Miami. Sue responded to our request on Thumbtack and the rest is history. She took great care of our Miniature Schnauzer while we were away for the day. He was walked, fed and given lots of love and attention. The photos and texts with updates was reassuring and a real bonus. We would highly recommend Sue and would definitely reach out to her again if we need a dog sitter in the future.

Rose has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and patience has exceeded my expectations. She is what a real dog trainer should be. I have spent a lot of money in the past with others with no end result and after just a short time I have already seen great results that continue even after she leaves our home. My Pitbull and Bull Dog love her and are growing to have much better manners. We are very grateful for the work she has put into the training and educating us to be better owners. Will recommend to friends and family without a doubt!

Martee always goes above and beyond when she cares for our 3 pups. They love her so much and we have total peace of mind when we're gone. It's wonderful to have her not only watch the dogs but also housesit. We plan trips every 2-3 months and Martee is always on time, handles emergencies with ease, communicates often with us while we're gone. We always come home to a spotless home and happy pups. She's the best!!

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.

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.

We have been using K-9 Coach for about 7 years. We had a new puppy after the death of one of our two dogs. The puppy was being very badly treated by the remaining dog and uncontrollable, probably in mourning. We used the K-9 Coach, Mike and got great results. We now have two very well trained dogs that are now therapy dogs at Hospice. We keep going to classes for socialism for our two dogs and on Saturday morning they sit at the door about 1/2 hour prior to our departure as they are so anxious to go to social class.cc

So far it has been an excellent experience. I have had all my questions answered promptly and the first visit with my dogs went very well. I think my animals will be well taken care of while I’m away.

Met with Renee and Christine and I'm so glad we connected! I have (2) 90lb dogs that I need help walking, especially now that I'm almost due with my baby. Renee and Christine are personable and professional. One of my dogs can run forever and the other has mobility issues. Christine is gentle with my one dog and wears out the other with a long run! It is so nice to know that I have someone knowledgeable and reliable to get my dogs out of the house.

I hired Quinn to work with my Boston Terrier mix (Lulu) who was a nightmare on a leash. She constantly pulled and had leash aggression issues. I purchased a package of personal training sessions and have been extremely happy with the results. The training was for me, as much as it was for Lulu. Quinn was really flexible and super easy to work with. Our training sessions started at home but we soon branched out to places like Petco and eventually downtown Dunedin. Lulu has come a long way since her first training session. She now knows several commands and walks nicely beside me on her leash. We are still working to improve her confidence when meeting new dogs on a leash but I continue to see improvement with each new outing. If you have a pup in need of manners, I highly recommend Quinn.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
