Scott is very knowledgeable about dog behavior. He offered very helpful information that would help train our two silky terrier's (ages 5.5years). Our dogs were very comfortable with him. His personalized service was amazing.

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

Gina was fabulous! I love that she provided weekly lesson plans that explained each command and when to start relying more on verbal rewards instead of treats. She had a good relationship with my pup and I saw a lot of progress during our time working with her and since. Various behaviors that were problematic were addressed and I noticed improvements quickly. We had previously done a 6 week course through a pet store with no where near the results we had from our 6 weeks with Gina. I am so thrilled in the investment we made with our time and money in selecting to hire DOG!

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!

I was looking for a high-quality dog trainer for my new puppy and am so happy I found Claudia. The one-on-one sessions allow us to cover a lot of ground and move at our own pace. She is very patient with me as I learn all about my dog and her behaviors. She really gives you insight into dog psychology and behavior and I finally feel like my puppy and I are speaking the same language! After the first session, my puppy was already more responsive at home and a much better walker. Looking forward to learning more with Claudia.

She had a creative idea of how to occupy my puppy when I cant watch him with putting things in his kong that I wouldn't of thought. She also showed me a great way to help my puppy learn to walk on a leash without tugging. She helped me with jumping on people which I had an idea of this but it was good to hear her tell me what I thought was right. She also told me when you tell him to do a behavior and right when he does it say Yes and reward. I already knew that and was using that but I'm glad we were on the same page.

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.

Mary has watched our two dogs Dakota and Tucker numerous times and has stayed with them overnight. Mary has always been extremely reliable and enjoyed watching our dogs; she is very knowledgeable when it comes to animals behaviors. I totally trust Mary with our dogs and I highly recommend her to watch your animals. Mary is also always punctual and very communicative to let us know how our dogs behaved while we were away. Our older dog Dakota also has a mean streak every now and then that Mary knew how to handle and was extremely patient with Dakota for which our family is thankful.

Paige helped me win my new lab puppy. She was very patient and even involved my daughter in the training. During the training Paige was always available to answer questions and went above and beyond and has allowed us to email her even now if we reach a sticky spot. Things with Bella have been great in the house and I look forward to purchasing more training from Paige in the future.
