We first met Susan in Virginia, where she was a vet tech at our vet's office. After we moved to Florida, we arranged for Susan to stay at our house and take care of our five dogs while we were away on vacation for a week. Susan did a great job in all aspects. She was very professional, making sure she had all the information about each dog's particular habits and needs, any anxieties (we have a couple that are afraid of heavy weather, for example), feeding, where they sleep, etc. She also made sure to have contact info so she could update us every day on how they were doing, which she did. Also, Susan happens to be great with animals. She developed an instant rapport with every one of the dogs. I highly recommend her, and we are already planning when we will ask her to come again.
We brought a new puppy in to our home with two other dogs, an Aussie and a Lab. From day one they did not take to our new puppy. The lab was highly aggressive to her and also was becoming aggressive towards us. My husband said that was a big NO NO and I needed to get rid of our lab (3 yrs). I cried for a week before deciding maybe he was right - nothing was working and I was scared he would soon land a fatal bite to the puppy. My vet said he wished we had a dog whisperer like like Cesar Millan in our area. In desparation I went online and typed in Dog Whisperer asking God to give me a miracle. He did! I saw Will Thomas' web site and called him. He answered my call that night, spoke to me for over and hour, and we set up an appointment for that weekend. I am amazed at the results. It wasn't necessarily my dogs but me, and how I interacted with them. My husband balked when I first told him about the appointment saying he'd believe it when he saw it. He now believes and tells all our friends the story and change in our dogs. The lab and puppy are now best buddies, I am no longer stressed out and our home is much happier. He made a difference in just a few hours! Of course we had to follow through with the exercises he showed us for a couple weeks and now everything is second nature. -Riverview, FL
I moved here a year and 1/2 ago from out of state with my 13 year old Golden Retriever Maggie. I didn't know anyone and my biggest concern was my Maggie when I was at work. Not only is Maggie a senior dog but she had severe arthritis issues that caused her mobility issues. When I met Shannon I felt immediately that she had the experience and compassion to deal with an aging dog. Shannon not only is an excellent caregiver whom I trust implicitly, but she is a great source for all things dog. She has referred me to a great vet, a very skilled surgeon and helps me troubleshoot the numerous health issues that Maggie has on a regular basis. The most important thing to me is I know that I can trust Shannon 100%. I leave the house knowing that if Shannon is scheduled to visit Maggie she will show up and I don't have to worry about a thing. I don't know what I would do without Shannon, she has been our lifesaver here in Florida. :-}
Jennifer cares for our pets and friend's pets with love and care. The pets miss her when we come back. She is dedicated and goes above and beyond. She also cares for the homeless animals. She feeds them and takes them to the vet.
Jeff has helped me tremendously with obedience training for my young Brittany spaniel. Jeff is a very experienced dog trainer and has worked with a wide variety of breeds. He provided me with a customized training program that was specific to my dog's breed and energy level. The training support that I received from Jeff was highly effective. I was most impressed by Jeff's personalized approach to dog training. His ability to work with both the dog and the owner in order to properly implement training and handling techniques is outstanding. Jeff is an excellent dog trainer and I highly reccomend his services.
Marcia is wonderful I had an emergency and my vet was full. We planned a cruse over a year ago and the money was non-refundable. We had her watch our 2 cats. She emailed us on a daily basis and all was great.
I have used Purple Lotus Pet Care for the last few years to take care of my 3 dogs and a cat. She has come to our house to walk the dogs when we had long days at work. She has dog sat for us when we are on vacation. She has even taken the pups to the vet when we could not take them. The dogs are always happy to see her and I love that she will text me and send pictures of them. KV
It doesn't get any better than Gaby! I took my 18 month English Mastiff to her for Boot Camp because her personality didn't fit her body. She was about 140 pounds but scared of her own shadow. If a sprinkler would kick on, she would run away. If someone tried to pet her, the tail would tuck between her legs and head would go down or she would just run away. She used to let our little dog (15 pounds) eat her dog food (ok - sometimes she still does!) She was petrified of visitors and would run to another room with no chance of getting her to come back and meet them. Now I can say with confidence, our lives have been changed, all thanks to Gaby! Today, I had an appointment in my house with someone my dog had never seen before. My dog, let the stranger come in, sit down, and conduct business. This was a FIRST for us. She didn't bark, run away or scare the visitor. She was so calm, that during our meeting, my dog laid down beside my feet and even crossed her paws. That action definitely was a result of Gaby's training. I am50 years old and have had several dogs -my current dog is my third Mastiff - I'm not stupid, I am well read and well trained but in all my years, there has never been anyone like Gaby. She will change your family dynamics, if you let her! I take my baby back to Gaby for boarding and I have to tell you that Puppy might be a bit reluctant to leave my car, once she is out of the car and running with Gaby's dogs, she loves it! I have never had that positive response from any of our pets with any boarding. When I pick Puppy up, she has NEVER had any adjustment issues. It doesn't get any better than Gaby!
Jan did a great job with my shih tuz! She really cares about the animals feelings and takes her time to make sure He was comfortable. She did a great job grooming my dog! She also used to be a vet tech so she shared some information about my dog that I did not know! We will be seeing her again in another 4 to 6 weeks!
Totally responsible, absolutely on time. Knows a lot about veterinary care and will contact our vet should a problem arise. Feeds her own animals only high quality food and brings high quality treats to my four dogs. Ellen lives to take care of animals and to honor her human friendships, as well.
