I hired Peter to assist me in fine-tuning some commands and behavior with my 3 year old Goldendoodle. Peter responded immediately and was very detailed in his first email about how he could assist me with the specific areas I wanted to focus on. He made it very easy to schedule the training. He called to confirm day and time and gave me a short overview of how he planned to work with us. I was very impressed that he had given such in-depth thought as to how he would customize training for my dog. Peter arrived on time and was extremely effective in training not only my dog, Charlie - but me! He is calm, gentle and very understanding. My dog, Charlie - trusted him immediately - so, I did too! I plan to work with Peter again in the very near future. He is knowledgeable, professional and experienced. I learned an ENORMOUS amount from our time together. Peter is EXCELLENT at what he does. I was most impressed and very satisfied. Do you and your dog a favor - Hire Peter!
No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.
Lee was extremely knowledgeable on dog training methods and helped me with training my fearful and reactive dog. I love that all of her methods are force free and positive and that she doesn't use punishment as a means of training behavior. Lee goes above and beyond in the time she gives you in helping to train your dog and makes sure that in between sessions you have things to practice to continue with the training. She was also full of helpful tips and suggestions about keeping my dog active and busy (and therefore keep him out of trouble) when we couldn't go outside during the long cold spell we had this past winter. I would highly recommend Lee for helping with any issues you may be having with your dog!
Blake has been working with our dog bear for a couple weeks now we already notice a,difference. She is great with both of our dogs. WE highly recommend her.
🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Last night I received my new boy, Abel from Jenny McPhee at Omni K9. Abel was shipped from Massachusetts to my place in California, and when Abel was unloaded from the transport van, I called his name and it was like an instant bond. I have never seen a bad pup come from Omni K9, they are all stable, level headed, excellently bred working dogs. Jenny sent Abel's x-rays of his hips and elbows, and they are excellent. No issues at all! Abel is a year and a half old and was started on his training when he was a pup by Jenny and Nick. I can vouch for their training as I was playing around with some obedience work with Abel today. His recall, heel, down/stay are all on point! More so that I thought it would be since he is a green dog. The amount of time, love, care and training Jenny has for all of her dogs is phenomenal and it all shows through each of them. Abel was her boy, her companion, and his demeanor is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend Nick and Jenny's training at Omni K9 and Jenny for her Omni K9 Gear products to anyone looking for an excellent training equipment and amazing working dogs!!
Katy was so sweet to our new puppy Rylie. Even though we are not new puppy owners, it was so helpful to really understand how to control their behaviors from a young age. She was very patient when sharing information on proper techniques to practice on a daily basis. I would highly recommend a few of the trainings to be one on one so you can ask questions and she can see your dogs training opportunities for future training sessions.
Heather was very informative and provided excellent training documentation. we discussed Sammy's issues and she explained how to handle them. she was very patient to listen to my litany of the problems Sammy and I have. Sammy is finicky and will not eat regularly. Heather explained that until Sammy's eating habits improved, his obedience will lag as well. we are having marked improvement as we continue to work on both. he's doing much better, thanks Heather! ciao! Susie and Sammy
Zephyr has mastered the art of dog training. Within minutes of our first session our previously untrained, recently adopted dog was sitting and heeling. We were trying to reduce his low level anxiety by working with him on basic obedience skills. Zephyr was very patient with me as I learned how to give the commands and how to use the leash. He was also very kind and loving to my dog, which I know is very important to most dog owners. My dog has shown less anxiety and greatly increased obedience skills in just three sessions with Zephyr. We are already recommending his services to family and friends with dogs!
I brought my dog here when he was three mounths old, know he is a little over a year and a half old and it has been nothing but a good experience for my dog in doggy daycare. He can't wait to come here and he allways doesn't want to leave. He is very well exercied and tired at the end of the day. It make me feel good about going to work during the day know that he is well taken care, loved. The play area has a very large play area for all the dogs so there is plenty of room to run!!! The groomimg has been perfect. I have felt to my dog has had a good socialazation with other dogs and people. Thankyou to all at THE PET SALON!!
Since finding Kyra, I know that I can go away and not worry about my doggies. It is apparent when you meet her and even more so, after you get to know her, how much she loves animals, all animals. One of my dogs is an abused rescue who is very picky about who he shows affection too, but as soon as he sees Kyra, he rolls on his back for belly rubs, an act that requires a great amount of trust, especially from such an abused dog. Kyra tries to be extremely accomodating with your schedule, I know she has re-arranged hers to be able to come to my house and just let my dogs out in the middle of the day. She checks in regularly leading up to the date(s) you need her. While away, Kyra will send pictures, videos and updates. Whenever I come back home, my house looks exactly the way I left it. She is completely respectful of my home and belongings and most importantly, genuinely cares about my dogs. I highly recommend using Kyra, she will put your mind at ease and allow you to enjoy your time away.
I take great care, and I protect your dog. I make sure your dog gets picked up on time and brought back to you on time. You can count on me!

I'm not a professional, but I have experience working with all types of dogs. I just really need a job, so I start my own dog walking business.
Decades of dog owning experience has equipped me to keep an eye on your pet when you're away from the house. I can give a nice, long walk to tucker your friend out and even do some basic training, such as sit and stay.
I love dogs and taking care of them! I am a dependable and responsible dog walker. I would gladly walk anyone's dog, and I am flexible with hours!
I love my job also i love all typs of dogs
I walk dogs, feed them and give them water. I bathe the dogs if needed. I also give them treats if they are well-behaved.
Well, I am nice. I love pets, and I will take them for good walks. I am athletic, and I have a great business. I run it myself, and I think that you would really enjoy my service.
As a trainer, I specialize in basic through advanced obedience, behavior modification, tracking, agility, and protection sport. I live and breathe customer service, and I haven't met a dog I can't help yet!
If i see something that needs to be done n i know you are very busy i would just do it to help. Happy home is the best home
I have had pets my entire life, including dogs, cats, and ducks. I am a total dog-lover. My fiance and I have two dogs ourselves. I am high energy and athletic and I have experience raising puppies. I am willing to walk dogs on leash; or off leash (if well behaved). I have a bachelor's degree from Bridgewater State University and I am a full time server/bartender. I have lived on the Cape most of my life. I also have a large fenced in yard that is pet friendly for dogs who need a safe place off a quiet road to run and play.
