7. Schildys' Pet services
- Serves West Des Moines, IA
"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.
I love working with and training these loveable dogs. Keep in mind that to us, the dog is only in a small part of our lives (timewise), and to our dog, we are their whole life! Make the most of it for them!"
