Really know dog behavior and Milo and Ryan are great to work with. Excellent communication and a deep well of patience for dogs and dog parents.
Darci came over to my home to do some training in my dog’s environment to address some specific things I wanted to work on. Not only was she wonderful with my dog, she explained things to me to ensure I could continue working on the training in the days to come. I would highly recommend Darci for any training needs - she is patient, knowledgeable and (most important to me) gentle with my pup! :-)
Heidi is doing a wonderful job for me and my dog, Patsy. She keeps me informed about how Patsy is doing and I feel very safe and secure with her taking care of my dog in my home. She leaves me notes each visit, and it seems like she loves Patsy like she was her own!! I highly recommend Heidi to care for your pets!
Working with Rita has been a phenomenal experience. She is professional, knowledgeable, but more than that she is an excellent instructor. You explain what you need and she has a resolution. Rita makes training easy. She makes sure you know how to work with your dog. Her hands on training gives you the knowledge and confidence to continue training. Both you and your dog will benefit from working with Rita. It’s reward based and fun. Don’t worry if you’re not getting it Rita is a phone call away. Her time with you is not just a schedule and we’ll talk about it on your next visit. She is there in between to guide you. I can not say enough about this remarkable woman and Canine Revival.
Lori is the best dog trainer that I know in Twin Cities! She is patient, and makes it fun, brings it to your home environment where the dogs are more relaxed. I also board my dog here as well. She is the cheapest, has better quality care for my dog than anyone I know. Best quality for the lowest price. She has trained my dog to be perfect! She bonds with the animals so well that they automatically listen to her, and even the most aggressive dogs aren't intimidated and will respond to her. I would recommend going to her before anyone else, you won't be disappointed. She cares about the people and the animals very much. My dog, Buddy, is a westie terrier and goes to doggy daycare here also. He gets along with everyone. Great!
We hired Mandy to come to our home for a dog training session to work with our Chihuahua Boston mix, who is unpredictably aggressive to people and dogs. She was flexible with our schedule. She asked all of the right questions to fully understand our dog, and was great at reading his body language to get to the core reason for his behavior. We've been following her advice and have seen improvement in just a few days, and looking forward to continuing to teach him some better manners! Overall our experience was excellent, we highly recommend Mandy at Terra Paws.
Jana and her team are very professional. My dog loves them, he's always happy to be back home but I never worry when they have him! I love the detailed notes they leave of what they did w/ my dog. I've referred one person to they already and I will continue to refer. Thanks @ Home Pet Care!!!!!
Dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, caring, and maybe part K-9. I couldn't recommend a better trainer for your dog not matter if the task is big or small. I have worked with her for over 4 years with many dogs and situations. She has personally trainer 2 of my dogs. One from a puppy and another we had behavioral issues with who is stubborn. She took on both tasks with full dedication and heart. Can not recommend enough!
Lynne is fantastic at dealing with my dog. She works with me and is very interested in making sure that my dog feels comfortable in his environment. I am very comfortable with her and am very happy that I picked her to help me deal with my dog's aggressive and fear behavior.
We met Sally before hiring her to take care of our "baby" in her home and were impressed with her experience and knowledge of dogs and did hire her to dog sit for us. Our dog is a rescue with several issues and she was very understanding and accommodated for them. We will be using her again.
Lindsay is an incredible dog trainer. She has turned our whole household around for the better because now we know how to interact with our puppy. We strongly recommend Lindsay Kinney from K9 Academy!
Ashley is incredible at what she does! She has been such a huge help to me and my pups. She has shared so many resources and lots of valuable knowledge with me. I don't know where my dogs and I would be without her! If you need a truly skilled dog trainer, nobody does it better than Ashley!
I heard about Cameron through friends. I was very emotional wondering if I may need to give up my Great Pyrenees. I could not get him to obey commands. He had run away and I almost lost him. I took him to see Cameron. Cameron listened to my issues and totally understood. He was very caring and knowledgeable about my situation. He taught me how to treat my dog in a way that made him want to please me. His technique is kind, firm and effective. He really knows and understands dogs. I highly recommend Cameron for anyone who truly wants the best for their pets.
I met Denise through my vet when looking for a puppy. The timing for a puppy was not in the cards at that time, however, we kept in touch. We are now training together with my first working line soon to be one year old female GSD. Denise has been a wealth of knowledge and is a wonderful trainer. Phone calls and/or messages of any kind are returned in a timely fashion and a professional manner. She is very patient and explains things well and I need this given this is my first go round at training. We had worked with another trainer for a short period of time and that wasn't working well for us. Am glad for that because it landed us at Denise's door. I would not hesitate recommending Denise for any breeding and/or training needs. We are beyond pleased with the services we are getting.
Christina loves dogs and it showed in her handling of our little senior rescues who are absolutely untrustworthy about going outside. In spite of having to clean up after them, she gave them lots of love and care. I am an elderly handicapped woman and I was home for part of Christina's stay. She took very good care of me as well. We will definitely use her services again.
Diana is faithful in walking my dogs and treats them as individuals. She loves dogs! Her husband is even a back up.
I love Alpha Dog Care, but more importantly my dog Howie LOVES Mary. We live in the neighborhood and walk by her house every day. If Howie notices any activity over at "Marys", he has to go over and get his attention from her. Howie is a "jumper" so I was a little nervous about leaving him with anyone. Mary had it all under control. She definitely has the heart for the dogs....they all seem to love her. Her house is set up with the dogs in mind....,the dogs are even allowed on the furniture. Howie liked getting a walk every day in addition to other activities.....such as story time and popcorn time ( if their humans allow it) I chose an " in her home" doggy care like Alpha Dog Care because Howie is such a social guy and would've been sad/bored with limited social interaction....somebody was there 24/7 which made me alot more comfortable!
Jenny gives my dogs (which I treat as my children) the best care possible every time I call upon her to be there to provide care for them. I believe what makes Jenny the best is she has pets of her own and treats all pets under her care as if they were hers. I started using her to watch my pets at my home where she would stop in 3 times daily and it has now progressed for my longer trips to where she watches them at her home conveniently located in Golden Valley which has ample space and a beautiful large fenced back yard for my dogs to play in. A+ rating and I highly recommend using Jenny for your dog/cat care needs.
Hi, there! Animals are my passion and my career. I have my degree in animal science with specialization in nutrition, health, and animal behavior/training from the University of Minnesota. I have worked at a vet clinic for three years during college. I have experienced working at PetSmart for over a year as a groomer and in sales in guiding new pet parents along their exciting new journey. I also gained experience in caring for reptiles, avian animals, and small mammals for those clients looking for care for other pets at home. During my last two years in high school, I worked at a pet resort and excelled in daycare and boarding services. I just graduated from college and have a lot of energy and TLC to give to your pet, and I hope you consider me for your next pet sitter. Please feel free to text/call my cell, or contact me via my email as well; I will return your call/email very promptly. I am available overnights and have a very flexible schedule.

I am a pet lover who have had animals all my life. I grew up on a hobby farm in southern Minnesota and have an experience with all types of animals. I would love to make your dog feel like they're on vacation while you're on vacation. I have a large fenced area in backyard for playtime and love going on walks with trails close by. They would get all the love and pampering as if they were my own!
