Great experience! Scott is very knowledgeable about dog behavior. He walked in and immediately began working with our stubborn beagle/bulldog mix. It has only been 3 days since our 1st training sessions and we are seeing a big difference already! Thanks Scott!

Sherry is a wonderful trainer as well as a wonderful person. She was extremely responsive as I was able to meet with her shortly after our initial conversation. After only two sessions, I have already noticed differences in my dog's behavior and look forward to our next in home visit.

Jaime is amazing! In her training program she works on all aspects of dog’s behaviors, socialization manners and obedience. More importantly, after Jaime completes the program she offers constant support; you are not left to your own devises. She is generous with her time and kind to you animal. Jaime achieves excellent results with positive reinforcement. As a result you get a well adjusted, trained and happy dog. Not zombified have robot, which is afraid to move or offer any new behaviors. When we started our two weeks BOARD & TRAIN program, we were a bit anxious. It is hard to give up your dog for two weeks. But as soon as Jaime started her daily updates and videos, we relaxed and enjoyed the ride. Best decision we made. She did an outstanding job with our 4 month old Weimaraner puppy. We highly recommend Jaime to anyone who needs help with their dog! Thank you!!! Maxim and Lana

Belinda is amazing!!! She does a wonderful job with both our dogs! She's even made them peanut butter puppy cookies. She gives us daily updates after her visit and sends photos. She even started training our one pup to sit before crossing the street! She is reliable, professional, trustworthy and a genuine lover of animals. Belinda is the best!

Chris transformed me and my dog, Declan’s, relationship through turbulent times. He enabled me to communicate with my dog and better shape behavior through positive reinforcement and maybe a little bit of training me. It was refreshing and fun. His enthusiasm is unmatched.

I hired Nancy about two weeks ago and so far my experience with pets and me is awesome. Nancy comes in on time with a possitive, loving attitude! My dog's Bella, and Hoodini absolutely love her with the delicious treats she provides them. While in a interview with Nancy she showed how much dignity and caring question like, if my pets have any allergies, are they up to date with vaccines, any triggers that effect them, is she able to give them any treats, are they friendly with other animals?!. I love my dog's more than anything in the world and have a hard time trusting anyone with them. Nancy proved to me that she is trustworthy, respects, and cares for my pets!. Thank you Nancy for all your hard work and dedication keep up the great work! 😃

Leslie helped me learn how to train my dog, Velvet, to pass the Canine Good Citizen test. Using Leslie's training techniques, I was able to dedicate time outside of the class to really help my dog learn new behaviors.

Lynn is the kindest, most patient and warmhearted, knowledgeable, and flexible person to work with. She has an exceptional understanding of dogs and their behavior. During our initial evaluation, Lynn gave us a few pointers and our dogs were behaving better. I could not ask for a better person to "train" me in training my dogs.

We asked Dee to come and observe our recently adopted rescue pug’s toy aggression. Dee immediately and accurately diagnosed Wilma's behaviors as the result of anxiety from a troubled past. Dee explained the purpose of the bad behaviors and how to correct them- to instill confidence in Wilma and integrate her into our “pack.” Her methods were quick, easy, and effective, as evidenced by our pug immediately learning and responding appropriately, and displaying calm behavior. Dee followed up that day with a helpful summary of our visit, and list of training vocab words, and she even offered me her number to text for any quick questions. We will certainly invite her again should any other issues arise, and we whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for an enjoyable and educational experience.

Nicole at Great Pet Vacations was a Godsend to our family. Our 14 month old yorkie poo was disobedient and had awful manners. We did not have the skills to change the situation. In June, we did 9 days of board and train with Nicole and we all were amazed at the initial results. Cocoa immediately was more reliable with potty training, would not cry in her cage and did not attempt to escape her pen. In July, she went back for the additional 12 days of the board and train program and can now sit, lay, target, walk on a leash, leave an item alone and is a calmer more obedient dog. Nicole is a miracle worker and takes her time demonstrating how to continue working on reinforcing the behavior with the owners to ensure continued success at home. She spent more than an hour with us at the intake consultation in order to understand our training goals. In addition, she spent more than 2 hours upon exit. It is clear she loves the animals she cares for, treats boarded dogs as her own, and is a superb dog trainer. This experience was every thing I hoped for and more than I expected. We plan to continue training sessions with Nicole and give her our highest recommendation to others.

I used the owner of North Shore Dogs for a couple years before I moved down to the city and I can honestly say from experience that I have never felt more comfortable or confident in a dog walker than I do in NSD. She was always there when needed in a pinch and consistent about when and how long she took my dog out. In addition to the daily walks I also felt very comfortable leaving my home and my animals (cats and dogs) in here care for extended periods of time. I recommend NSD for all of your pet needs! Now I just wish she would extend her services downtown ;)

Eric was awesome and his love for animals apparent in the quality of service delivered. He not only took care to ensure my dogs were well taken care of while i was on a recent business trip, but also ensured that they had fun, socialized with other animals and taught them a thing or two. I will definitely entrust my dogs with him on my next trip.

Laura is magnificent with animals. She treated our dog like she was her own. The care and love Laura provides is 2nd to none. When we're out of town we never have to worry. She always takes her time with the walks and always makes sure our home is locked and secure when she leaves....A+
