Maureen and I have only met once so far and she has already been a huge help! She's given me tons of advice, tips and helped me train my dog kindly and compassionately! I can't wait to spend more time with her training my dog. Thanks, Maureen!
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.
Luis is very professional and takes his job seriously. He knows his stuff and does an excellent job with the training. My dog loves Luis, and we both have enjoyed working with him. I am very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend him!
Brandi is all my dog and I could have hope for. Great training. Great service. Great progress with my dog's behavior.
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!
Rose is amazing! She has been working my 8 month old beagle. Rose has been working w/ us on leash training, sit, stay, come, not jumping and has really helped w/ the nipping and biting. I highly recommend her for anyone that needs dog training. She is worth every penny.
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.
excellent pet care service provider... has been extremely flexible with schedule changes and short notices. He came to our house several times a day last time when our dog was sick to give him medicine instead of risking him being around other animals. Josh is very knowledgable of animals, their needs & always available....highly recomended!
Came out to the house and was really good at explaining and giving us the tools we need to be successful with training our puppy, can’t wait for the next lesson!!
Alison stayed in our home for 10 weeks and took excellent care of our young golden retriever Arlington and middle aged cat Belle. Arlington is a high maintenance dog, needing a lot of love and attention, so it was very important to us that we find someone who would take care of him in the manner that he is used to. Alison did a wonderful job with exercising him, administering medication, and keeping him well groomed. She also bonded with Belle, our rather neurotic and high strung cat, to the point that her IBS symptoms went away while Alison was taking care of her. Alison checked in frequently with us via email and was extremely flexible when we needed to coordinate an appointment with a mobile dog groomer. Alison also took great care of the home and we found everything to be in the exact same condition as when we left. The mail was nicely organized and the yard was well tended. The things we appreciated the most about Alison was her good judgement and self-sufficiency. We really felt as though she treated our home and pets as her own, and had a great understanding of what was important to bring to our attention while we were away. We left detailed information on the home and the pets and Alison was able to manage everything from there. This was the first time using a housesitter, so we were a little nervous about having someone stay in our home. We felt so fortunate finding Alison and would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a housesitter, particularly to help take care of pets.
Martee did a great job looking after our dog/house. She was punctual, reliable and caring towards our pet. She even did some laundry while we were away, which was very much appreciated. I would have no problem recommending her to someone else. Sue Fox
Christina is amazing! She really knows her stuff, is willing to answer any and all questions, and really takes her time training you and your dog. I highly recommend her.
Vanessa is excellent and very communicative while watching our dog Mckenzie. You can tell she loves what she does and it definately shows! Everything she promised while pet sitting was taken care of along with many pictures of our Airedale! I would recommend her to anyone!
I've been using Maya and Happy at Home for several months. Maya is great with my dog - she is really caring and responsive. Super reliable. I appreciate that she takes different walk areas for my fur baby and he loves it !
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.
Neil is one of the best dog trainers I know. It's all about the dog. He is very passionate and dedicated in his work. One of the most knowledgeable in this industry. I would highly recommend Neil to train your dog.
Lane has a true understanding of dogs. I Met lane walking around downtown Dunedin when my GSD (German Shepherd dog) was about 4 months old(about a year ago). We spoke of a mutual love for the breed and how both of our grandparents were involved in K9 training (my grandfather was a k9 judge). Lane never pushed a service our a sales pitch on me he asked me some questions about my GSD. I let him know I was working with a trainer but at times my puppy seemed to rule us. He then told me he moved to the area and is training dogs here and if i ever needed help to call him (His expertise includes guard dogs, behaviors, advance training). During the past year we still were working with the original trainer who was very good as well. Something was missing though and we both felt that we taught my GSD everything we could but, he had a hurdle. You see my GSD would see other dogs and become over stimulated and hard to control and this started at about 7 months old ( He is a very intelligent and high drive GSD who's a sweetheart but stubborn.). He would jump on everybody not listen and tend to be just a brat. With dogs though he would bark aggressively and scare other people even though he just wanted to play he also seemed to be scared of them. So my trainer said let's take some time off and figure out something later. My wife and I talked about how he just needed to age and mellow but I felt this could not wait. I also mentioned how we met Lane and we should call him, but we were feeling a little discouraged and felt it may be better to wait. The next afternoon on the way to the beach I saw Lane walking two dogs and told my wife it's a sign let's just call him and try it. Lane gave us a free consultation that was over an hour. He then gave us his feedback and gave us pricing that was very competitive to any big box store but his is one on one. The difference with Lane though has been dramatic already, he truly has a passion and love for his career. After just a few weeks my GSD has improved with not only his old training but new training as well. My GSD is walking better on leash, reacting less and learning to be a companion and not pushing to be an alpha. Lanes knowledge of reading a dog has been honed since a young age and it shows. My GSD not only loves to go to training but now acts as if Lane is part of the family. My GSD is calmer and now looks for me to command him. We are not perfect by any means (its only been 4 weeks) but I truly believe with Carters k9s my GSD will be perfect and a dog that my grandfather would adore. Ask about the tree stump!
