I am giving 5 stars because she did a very amazing job with my dog, she was rescued and needed to get GROOMED ASAP! She was really matted, she had about 4 inches of thick fur coat. Cathy had the patience and did a lovely job. I definitely will keep using her for my dogs grooming. She dematted my dog and now she’s running around happy. Thank You! I appreciate the fact you came in less than a 24hr notice. Reasonable price as well.
Sandy led the second round of training for my 2-year old rescue dog. Our first training class offered at a major pet retail chain was OK, but the training was a little disorganized. Sandy corrected the earlier training, offering really practical and helpful advice for me to work with my dog. Each training lesson built on the previous one, so the learning was reinforced. And best of all, Sandy really loves her job and her students! (And my dog is always happy when he sees her!) I recommend Sandy highly!
I purchased my German Shepherd from Robin last fall and he has honestly been such an amazing dog (not to mention gorgeous coat). She worked with him prior to me picking him up and he was virtually house broken already and only had a couple accidents in the house (less than 5). She had also worked with me one on one with training both Moose and myself how to respond to certain issues and how to train his commands. I definitely recommend Robin for her dog training skills and think she does a wonder job and is very experienced especially with GS dogs.
I rarely write reviews for businesses but it is my extreme pleasure to add a review for John Horan of ACTK9. John went above and beyond in training my dog Cooper. I could not be more please with the results of his work. I now have a wonderful dog who comes when called, downs, places, etc. I highly recommend John to everyone who wants the same results. He is a true professional. Thanks you John.
Haven’t started training yet. I hired her for her knowledge and experience in training dogs. So easy to talk to. Answered all my questions.
Meghan--Thank you so much for all of the pet sitting and training. Georgie is a new dog, and we are better pet parents! You are fantastic, and we are so grateful. We look forward to having you back soon.
Debbie was wonderful! She clearly cares very much for dogs and it shows through her work. She’s very knowledgeable, helpful and sweet. We have worked with many different trainers and my pup was the most comfortable around Debbie. That’s the most important to me.
I took my new young dog for a private lesson with Melinda. We were already taking beginner agility lessons in a class at local dog club.. but Melinda's one-on-one was tailored for me and my dog. I've been trialing in agility for 13 years ... but Melinda has taught me new and better ways to train and practice. She is up to date on the latest techniques. She is over an hour drive for me, but well worth it.
Very efficient and very helpful. Always there to encourage us and for any questions we had. Our dog has definitely changed for the better
I worked closely with Nicholas for life coaching for over a year now and I couldn't be happier. He is a phenomenal speaker and wonderful mentor who has an innate ability to track your negative thoughts and emotions and turn your mental state around to a more positive one. Because of him, I am now pursuing full recovery with my eating disorder, have now fully embraced my hearing disability, and am now helping other women learn to love themselves and recognize their worth. I also recently hired Nicholas as my personal service dog trainer (talk about a multi-faceted individual!), and he has quickly established a wonderful, respectable, and loving relationship with my dog. Nicholas exhibits patience, professionalism, and quality in his work. Don't miss out on working with this amazing individual!
Dina has taken wonderful care of my dog Kirby for years. Taking care of animals is not just a job for Dina - it's her passion. Her love for the pets in her care is so obvious. If you want someone who will care for your pet as though it were her own, contact Dina. She's the best!

Job well done He is patient ,Caring and would jump thru hopes to prove a good Dog!!
