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.
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.
Scott was outstanding! He quickly identified the problem and gave us 'homework' to work through it. His knowledge of dog behavior is very solid. We will definitely hire him again if future problems arise.
Top notch dog trainer. Professional and very knowledgeable. It was only a week before I noticed huge differences in my dog's behavior, and taught easy to use techniques to help maintain good behavior. Highly recommended!
After spending a ton of money on training through another company with almost no change in my dog’s behavior I was starting to fear that he was a lost cause. A friend recommended Stephanie and I couldn’t be happier! She was on time, extremely knowledgeable, and had control of my dog’s behavior almost instantly! After staying with Stephanie for just two weeks my dog behaves perfectly!
Scott was great with my dog Theo. K9 tutoring provides a great environment for learning. After two days of training we could see the difference in Theo's behavior. In addition, Scott gave us the tools to continue his training on our own. I would highly recommend K9 tutoring.
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.
It is obvious that Alec is an animal lover. Conscientious, kind and respectful of the owners and their pets.
I've worked at humane societies, dog and cat sat for clients from the shelter. I've also worked at stables and veterinarians and have owned animals for over 40 years. I love working with animals, they are the best.
Well to start off, I am a caretaker for all types of animals! I take care of dogs, cats and horses! My schedule is very flexible, so I will always come to you. I will pet sit, and I am very affordable. I will work off your schedule!
Judy took excellent care of our animals while we were on vacation. She looked in on them 3 times a day which was what we had agreed upon. Judy che ked on them once each morning, once in the afternoon and once in the evening which was also when they were fed. The animals included our two dogs, our son's two chinchillas and our box turtle. We were iimpressed with the fact that she tried fixing the water bottle for one of the chins. When that didn't completely succeed, she went and purchased a new one. Judy definitely took care of the needs of all our animals. We came home to a clean house and happy animals. We have already made arrangements with her to come back again in October. In short, Judy's service was outstanding.
Sara provided excellent customer service; she responded immediately to me when I reached out to her, answered all of my questions, notified me when she was coming to pick her up (on time!) and dropping her off (round-trip for a small fee! awesome!), and provided feedback on her behavior. My girl left happy and came back happy and fresh and clean with a cute Fall scarf! I would highly recommend her to my friends and family and we will definitely be using her soon again. Thanks Sara! :)

Tami is wonderful to work with. She is great with animals, flexible, and responsive. She goes above and beyond to make sure her customers (and of course, their animals) have a positive experience. I highly recommend her!
I'll keep a watch on all pants. I am great with animals. I listen to all my customers, and I always do what I'm just told.
