Lisa was easy to work with and very professional. I contacted her on Saturday and she was available to take my dog for a week of basic training the next day. At the end of the week, she provided at home tips to continue training and encouraged us to contact her with any questions/concerns we may have in the future. Lisa was able to introduce my dog to the goat and horses on the farm which provided him with more exposure to other animals. My dog is only 11 months and he now listens well to 'sit', 'stay', 'off' and 'lets go' commands. He now gently takes treats with just his front teeth as well (which is great for my 5 year old!).

I already rebooked! She was professional and also very friendly. It didn't feel awkward having someone in my home grooming my dog. She also included my curious three year old in the process! She left the bathroom cleaner than she found it. Highly recommend.

Lesli is very reliable. She takes some time to interact with the cat while she's at my house letting the dog out. She always lets me know when she's been here and how the dog - and the cat - are doing.

I enjoyed working with Krystal. She is very friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, and very professional. She was thorough in our first meeting to get to know my dog and his needs. She was very helpful to me in giving me information on ways to train my dog.

I have been working for lucky dogs daycare for about a year and a half. My experience with lucky dogs has been a great one. We are still a growing business and are building up our facility to be the best it can be. We are a full service daycare facility, but we also do boarding, training, grooming and we have our new retail shop with all sorts of goodies for your pups. I love being able to bring my dog Buffy in for a groom. She's older so she doesn't care for daycare, but she loves coming to Lucky Dogs for a good pampering by Jane. All of our groomers are great at what they do and our experts in their field. They have been grooming for many many years. The best part about working for lucky dogs would have to be the dogs. We have a really good group of dogs that come pretty much everyday. At lucky dogs your dog isn't just another name on a list, every staff member has their own favorites lol. And throughout the day each dog gets some one on one attention with their favorite staff member and vice versa. We take the time to get to know each dog and their behaviors, and try to cater to each dogs individual needs. So we can ultimately have a safer group of dogs to play with each day. We also have a really good group of staff members, some of them have been here for a couple years and a few have been here a little less. We really don't have a high turn around rate for staff like with most daycares. So our staff and especially the dogs are like family here.

So far, we've been really impressed with Muddy Paws! This has been a delightful e per once from the onset. Jena responded to our initial inquiry within a couple hours of posting. It was a Friday, and we were somewhat desperate to set up dog walking services for Monday. Jena was so accommodating! She organized for one of the managers in our area, a primary dog walker, and a secondary/backup dog walker to do a meet and greet on Saturday afternoon with the intention of commencing services the following Monday. All 3 of them came to our house on Saturday afternoon to meet our newly adopted puppy and review her routine, our wishes for how everything would come together, etc. So far, we're a week into it and couldn't be happier! Our walker is great with our pup, and consistently shares detailed notes after each walk - sometimes pictures, too! She's even kind enough to bring in packages/mail for us - above and beyond! We can tell our puppy enjoys her time with her, and the quick relief breaks twice a day have been great for helping us with house training her since we both work in the city.

Zach was great! Lulu is a three year old lab, who pulled like crazy on leash. Within a few days she was better and by the end of training she was amazing. Zach was professional and a great guy to work with. He has a lot of chemistry with the dogs. Lulu was beyond excited to see him each day. I would definitely recommend him to others! Lisa, Evan & Lulu.

Deb has been very flexible as I don't have a set schedule every week, which was a big concern of mine. She and her staff have been patient and understanding w/ my dog who is a rescue and has been quite a challenge!

Gail is personable with critters AND people! Gail is honest, reliable, conscientious, even making visits at odd hours to ensure comfort of our pets' schedules; I loved how she took pictures and communicated regularly. A wonderful lady providing a wonderful service. We will work with Gail in the future to provide care for our senior dog and cats in the comfort of our home.

I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.

Hello there! My name is Alyssa and I am a professional dog trainer. I currently work at a dog training facility. At this facility I train and rehabilitate dogs. I have trained dogs with all different temperaments and behavior issues (fear aggression, dog aggression, agression towards humans, separation anxiety). That being said, no dog is too much for me! Other than my work life, I love to hangout with my pup and go for hikes. I am currently enrolled in the criminal justice program at my college and hope that one day I can work for a federal agency or with the police K-9 unit. With my services, I will be able to do obedience training for an hour a day with your pup as I am caring for him/her. Your dog will also experience some awesome hiking trips! If you would like to know more about me or my services, just ask! I have plenty of references from clients that I would be happy to provide!

My name is Avery Bowlan. I recently moved to Massachusetts from Oklahoma and had to leave my dogs behind with my family. I was severely lacking in canine affection over my first few months in Massachusetts, so I began dog walking. I would love the opportunity to spend some time caring for your pets, making sure that they get the exercise and time in the outdoors that every dog needs. I am an active individual who enjoys running and, of course, a good game of fetch. I have experience walking up to ten dogs, several times a week. I'm willing to get outside, rain or shine! There's nothing like a good jog in the rain! I also own an iPhone 5s, which I never leave home without. I believe that communication is extremely important, especially within the dog walking industry. I really hope to have the opportunity to help make my customers and their dogs happy by providing exceptional dog walking service.
