I'd like to preface this review with an apology to the reader. It’s a bit long. I strongly believe that if you are going to trust someone with a member of your family, you have to arm yourself with as much information as possible in order to choose the RIGHT trainer :-) Carrie is an amazing dog behaviorist! My bratty 3 yr old pitbull (Anabel) spent 14 days in her home as a board & train. I was fairly nervous about sending my beloved dog to a stranger for 2 weeks, but from the moment that I met Carrie I was completely at ease and trusted that she would take good care of Anabel. Needless to say, she did not disappoint. I was so impressed with her results that I purchased a package of 4 in-home sessions to help with my old Spaniel. Both purchases were worth every penny & I'd use her again in a hearbeat. Her prices are way beyond reasonable, especially considering how experty she is ;-) During the board & train I was getting daily communication on Anabel's progress as well as her general mood. This was a godsend, because if you're anything like me, 14 days away from your baby is torture! Carrie sent me daily texts, pics & even videos. The before & after video she made was crazy amazing! Anabel came home with her same goofy personality, but now she was OBEDIENT! Super cool :-) For our in-my-home sessions, not only did she work with my dogs, but she trained me as well. Carrie gave me the information & tools I needed to be an effective pack leader. She is an absolute wealth of knowledge on dog behaviors, their thought processes & how the human pack leader can use this information to have happy & healthy dogs. Her schedule is extremely flexible & she always figured out a way to work with my fairly rigid work hours. Also, these sessions never felt rushed. She took her time to explain things to me (often more than once) and never gave me the sense that she was "on the clock", like, "ok, your hour is up." If we were working on a new challenge, she made sure we finished the lesson & that my endless questions were answered, even if time ran over. She's very chill like that. One of the best things about Carrie is that she is straight forward with you, but in a compassionate manner. You get no BS from her. As in, if you're doing something that is causing negative reactions in your dogs (which I was, unknowingly), she will give you constructive criticism & then teach you how to fix it without making you feel like a dummy! I can't say enough good things about this lady. It’s quite obvious that Carrie loves what she does as she is without a doubt BRILLIANT at it!!
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!

Neika is able to provide easy dog training solutions for busy families, incorporating the whole family in the process based on skills and abilities. My mission is simple: to help you have a better relationship with your pet and to make your pet a positive asset to your family. I do this by using positive reinforcement, non-aversive training techniques, and teaching you and your dog a better way. There is no need for stressful corrections, physical punishment or barbaric equipment.
Big or small, I train them all. I do basic and intermediate dog training in the dogs home environment.
This is not a business. I am looking for a great job I love to do. I love dogs, so I will be interested in taking care of them. I walk dogs and babysit dogs.
I am an animal lover. I have six dogs and two cats. I can walk, feed and play with your dog. Bring your dog to play and socialize with mine. I trained my 5-month old husky mix to sit, shake, sit pretty, high five, hug, kiss, speak and do piggyback rides. I have been around dogs my whole life. I treat them as members of my family. This is my first time doing this for anyone besides myself, so I will only be taking on two clients at a time because I want to do a great job for them and also continue to love my animals. So, contact me and let me know what you need, long or short term, we can agree on a price. Add fuel to travel to and from you. I can't wait to love your animal too.
