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.
Becca is an amazing dog walker. My dog can be timid and Becca handled her so well. She has a natural gift for relating to animals. Your pet is in good hands with her.
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! 😃
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.
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.
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.
I could not ask for anyone better to care for my animals. Jazmin loves my animals like they were her own. When Mikey, my cat, was sick she has no problem giving him his medications. She spends time with them, it's not run in do what she has to do then leave, no, she spends time with them and plays with them, gives them quality time. My dog Roxy, is always excited to see her and loves her walks with Jazmin. Jazmin is concerned about their well being and what is best for them. I totally trust Jazmin and would recommend her highly. she has become part of my family. What is wonderful about Jazmin is she takes pictures when she comes and sends them to you which I love. I can not say enough about how wonder At Your Home Pet Sitting is, you can not go wrong.

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.
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!
Cristiana has sat and walked my dog numerous times. She's trustworthy, consistent, and lives animals! Highly recommended!
I am an empath . I have always felt a connection to nature and have had animals and reptiles surround me and "speak" with of course non verbal cues .
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! :)

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.
I walk the dogs as many times needed. I work with anything. I have to feed them if needed or shower them, and I play with them.
I will come to you, or you can come to me, whatever you feel more comfortable with. We will address the needs of your pet and your needs as the owner. Together, we can put together a simple plan that will work toward your goals as a pet owner and based on your pet's behavior. Every dog is different. I have a Boarding/training program . Overnight Dog Boarding on a limited basis in my home.
I have been training dogs for 25yrs. I work with any breed and age. I know a variety of training techniques, but use Positive Reinforcement. I work with dogs from basic-advanced obedience, fear/aggression issues, & behavioral issues.
