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.

David came to help us with our five year old rescue mixed terrier. We've had her for one year. Some negative behavior had been exacerbating. I was ready to take notes so I'd remember. David said he's leaving basic notes to review. I did not need to write what David what explaining and demonstrating. Everything was logical, straight forward, interesting and easy to understand. He is seasoned, exceptional with dogs (and humans), and what he teaches works. We knew basic commands but paramount was that David told us what to do should she not listen (which she often didn't). We went outside to practice and were amazed. Not only could David elicit the proper behavior but my husband and I could as well. I was truly shocked. David gave us an incredible amount of fascinating information that was easy to retain and we practiced so much that I thought he had been with us an extra hour but he hadn't. David left late afternoon. From that evening on, my husband and I have followed his directives and the negative behaviors have ceased. I've purposely not named which behaviors we needed to correct because it was obvious that what David taught crosses over to all types of behaviors. I can guarantee that whatever issues you have with your dog, David can teach you how to alleviate them as long as you follow through. It is evident that practicing David's techniques are not only good for the owners but the dog is much more satisfied. "A Best Friend Certified Dog Training" is second to none.

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.

Julie has been a blessing for my wife and I. We met her and immediately liked her. She has proven to be reliable, trustworthy and most important....great with our 2 dogs Teddy and Buffy. Julie spends time with them, walks and pets them. We trust her so much that we gave her the alarm code and entrance to our house. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone wanting a dog sitter/walker. Ian & Melissa, Bradenton, Fl.

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.

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.

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.

Christine is awesome! She did a great job helping us train our 10 week old Brittany Spaniel puppy, Lola. She listened to what we wanted to work on each week and incorporated it into our training session. Rather than training your dog for you, Christine teaches you what to do so your dog will listen and follow your directions. She uses positive reinforcement so your dog is always happy. Lola is our pet but also a hunting dog every now and then. So, Christine learned how to train her for hunting purposes. She is incredibly knowledgeable and made the training sessions easy to understand, fun and enjoyable for Lola and us. She also followed up with additional information and tips after each session. Christine has also helped us during the day by coming over and taking Lola for walks. We always get cute pictures and an update when she leaves on how the walk went. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for training, walking or sitting. We love Christine and so does Lola!

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.

Kristina has watched my dog twice now. I came over filled out a small info sheet about my dog and was able to see where my dog Taz would be staying. She has a beautiful huge backyard for Taz to run around in! Way better than a kennel and having my dog locked up in a cage! She did an excellent job! Pricing was ideal and she is reliable. Whenever I need a pet sitter she is my go to!

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.
