We initially contacted Four Winds Dog training for several reasons, most importantly my very excitable and dominant dog had nipped the UPS man. He was also overly excited to greet people at the door. I also had concerns of him being around my young grandchild. The Shahar helped us learn and use several strategies, mostly praise and positive reinforcement. To help us deal with these problems. Most recently we are working on desensitizing him to having his paws touched and his nails clipped. Before this training we would have to have him sedated at the vet clinic and they would trim them there with the help of three vet Tech's to hold him. We are still in this process but currently I can touch his nails with the trimmer (the grinding type)while holding onto his paws. I would highly recommend Shahar because she is easy to work with, she is energetic , patient and is very good at what she does.
Lori Brown of Browns Dog Training, is a very unconventional trainer. Lori devotes her entire day and home to the animals she trains, boards, provides day care for and clearly is fulfilling her passion to animals. Our Hunter, loved staying with Lori for two weeks and was still happy to see us when we came to pick him up. Believe me, Lori is an excellent trainer and so passionate about her four legged family. I suggest you at least meet Lori. She is unconventional but fantastic with dogs. We will bring Hunter back just so he can see Lori again.
Sally was very nice to work with and my dog Lucy enjoyed working with her too. Lucy liked to jump up a lot and Sally taught us techniques that showed results right away. She had great tips and suggestions on how to care for her. We plan to hire Sally if Lucy ever needs care while we are out of town.
Roxanne is amazing! She has worked so diligently with our family and our puppy's needs. Any problem we were having, she had a way to address it. The best part is, it works!! She has a miracle solution for every instance. Roxanne is always willing to listen and do what is best for the family and the dog. Her techniques are easy to follow and always positive! She has reassured our family that we are making progress and are doing what is best for our puppy. We have seen wonderful changes in our puppy and are excited to continue to work with Roxanne. :)
Mary is more than a dog trainer. She's my mentor for all things related to dogs. She works with a deep awareness of what it takes to bring people in alignment with their dog's intelligence, emotions and breed. The more she shares the more I want learn, and I am grateful.
The most caring and sensitive trainer I know!! All Positive she really loves animals and it shows! I Really think she could train a mosquito if she tried!
Love the dog training classes by Terrific Tails! Great location, instructor is very knowledgeable and classes are affordable. Thanks!

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.
Hire professional dog trainers from Captains Kennels. They offer efficient programs for your pets, from guard dog training to pet boarding and puppy obedience training.
I'm up for either of the three. I have experience with babysitting, nannying, and I have three dogs, so I know how to take care of them.
We are training dogs effectively with pain-free methods. Reward-based training methods, usually referred to as positive reinforcement training, focuses on giving and taking away things the dog wants. Reward-based training methods rely on two principles of operant conditioning:
I will walk or run your dogs, feed your cats, babysit and clean your house, and I'll even do the laundry! I can do just one of these for you or all of them. I work during weekends too.
I will walk your dog for you when you can't at any time of the day. I will work around your schedule.
I offer dog training, including basic skills, advanced skills, manners, aggression, and fear-based behaviors. I train with positive reinforcement and can adapt methods from person to person and dog to dog, as no two are the same. I have 12 years of experience as a certified veterinary technician and 8 years of training. I sat for and passed the Dog CPDT exam on the fall of 2010.
I'm excited to help dog owners learn to train their dogs to be happy, cooperative family members!
I am a one-person pet sitting/dog walking operation. I love animals, and I have many years of experience as a pet owner and volunteer with animal rescues. I volunteered for many years at the Animal Humane Society and currently volunteer with Secondhand Hounds, a no-kill rescue. I have cared for dogs, cats and horses as a pet sitter.
With humane, science-based training methods, we will decide what you want your dog to do instead of focusing on what you don't want him doing. I am committed to using only humane, science-based training methods. My goal is to provide you with the tools you need to enjoy the dog you already love. Why use pain or fear-based methods when there are other options? When I work with a dog I go at their pace, watch for a goofy smile and wait for the dog to let me know when he is having fun. I hope to someday see the dog training industry say goodbye to scary and painful training tactics.
I'm just starting this business. I'm a 61 years young man who has a disability. My experience is that I've had a dog in my life since I was a young boy. I also had dogs since high school. I trained myself in dealing with obedience issues. I provide a firm and loving care without cruelty or mistreatment . They're just like my kids to me and I love them all unless they show me that they don't deserve that love and that has never happened.
At Doggie Doo's, we offer pet boarding for dogs, cats, and small animals. Our dog boarding is unique because the dogs are only kenneled when they eat and sleep. We have spacious indoor and outdoor facilities that your dog will love. We offer dog grooming for puppies of all shapes and sizes. For every dog, we do a full-service groom that includes two baths, conditioning, ears cleaned, and nails done. At Doggie Doo's Spa and Retreat, we have large indoor and outdoor play areas with sufficient space for dogs to play all day! The dogs are supervised 100% of the time while they are playing to ensure a safe and friendly environment.
Every dog is treated like it is a member of my family.
