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!

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.

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.

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.

Rudy has had our 2nd Gen. German Shepherd puppy and has taken a very head strong dog thru basic training and I can not say enough good things about his program and procedures to bring this dog into what we wanted him to be. Now we are going to let him go thru the protection and aggression part of his program. I can't say more about this trainer but to tell you if you want your dog trained right talk to Rudy. Without any abuse to a head strong dog he is the man for you. I plan on getting another Shepherd and no one would I consider other than him. I could not be more pleased or satisfied with his program working with my dog and my wife Debbie's baby.

Lane Carter Dog Trainer

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!

About

I love dogs! I've owned several different breeds throughout my life and will never be without one or two. I know how positive feedback behavior works and use this method with my dogs. I understand how they think and can handle almost any situation with good results. I am drug free and am willing for you to do a background check on me if you'd like to. I have reliable transportation and will always be on time.

About

I will happily walk all sizes and number of dogs. I will care for dogs and cats in homes. My services include feeding, bathing and exercise/play. I'm a 29-year-old guy with an extremely flexible schedule to accommodate all needs.

About

For about a year, I've worked in a veterinary clinic as assistant for doctors and boarding kennel experts. Under their wing, I've learned a lot about proper animal care. I have walked hundreds of dogs, with special needs, and lively as 1 year old Jack Russell. I have followed a regimen with feeding schedules for 20 dogs/cats at a time. I'm fairly experienced with handling animals, including cats, dogs, ferrets and rabbits. I've owned multiple dogs and a few ferrets. As far as cats, I recently fell in love with them about 2 years ago when I met my fiancee and her four family cats. I understand that cats take longer to adjust to a new person in their lives, but I'm willing to work with them. I recently graduated with my AA degree, and I will be attending USF for my bachelor's degree. I am 21 years old, responsible, friendly, and polite. I am very patient and an animal lover. I will happily provide a list of references upon request.
