I cannot say enough about Lucretia Jeffrey. She came into a home occupied by a disabled man and not only cleaned a filthy house but cleaned out his dog's kennel and did laundry! She also came on a day when everything was closed due to 10" of snow because she knew how badly the house needed to be cleaned.

We boarded our dog with Brett at Mischeivous K9 in March 2013 while on a 10 day vacation. This is a very nice facility. Especially like the large indoor/outdoor kennels. Your dog has lots of room to move around and can go freely from inside to outside. Brett spent time with our dog every day. He even taught him new tricks/commands during his stay. We feel our dog is well taken care of here. Brett is caring and committed to the animals he takes care of and we feel lucky to have a place to leave our dog that we feel good about. We were so impressed to learn of Brett's knowledge and expertise in training dogs, we have since hired him for obedience and protection training.

I walk dogs and play with them, and I make sure that they are OK and are healthy. I make sure that they are well taken care of, and they get their playtime. I give them treats if they do sit when I tell them to sit.

We have a 6yr old black and tan coonhound, a 4yr old American Leopard Hound, and a 3 yr old Great Dane in our family. I enjoy and love the companionship of a loyal dog. Roxy, our black and tan, was my 1st coonhound, got her at 6 weeks from a sketchy breeder (didnt know at the time). I put my heart and and soul into this dog, every spare second i could get was spent training, shes the most hard headed dog I ever met. I almost gave up on her, but after a long and frustrating 14 months, i was finally able to flip a switch, and shes been treeing ever since. Over 360 coons behind her to date. I trust her more than most people I know which is hard to beat and that kind of loyalty is priceless. I provide basic pet sitting, possibly a few days of care at my home, basic training, commands, i can break your dog of pulling you down the street, coon/squirrel/pheasant/ and waterfowl training. I've also efficently trained retrievers, labs, pointers, spaniels, danes, redbone, mountain curr, doxin, shepherds, and the list goes on. I prefer to work with medium to xl dogs. Nothing more frustrating or embarrassing than your dog dragging you down the street chasing a rabbit. Let's break those bad habits.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
