Ryan and Milo did a great job with our German shepherd. They handled every situation with our dog well, even when he was being difficult. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of dog training.

Rita was a perfect fit for us in her approach to training our puppy, George. She has given us so much valuable advice. We will continue to tap into her expertise even after our sessions are completed.

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!

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!!!!!

This was our first time working with a dog trainer and Crystal exceeded our expectations! She taught us a few techniques to keep our 7-month old puppy from jumping on us and others and it seems to really work! She also gave us some great tips on types of toys that would keep him busy and stimulated. She was extremely helpful at explaining to us why our dog was behaving in certain way and showing us techniques we can use to lower his energy level. We will definitely be recommending her to others!

I met Melissa today to discuss walking my 2 dogs. 1 dog was anxious & calmed down after a few minutes. The other dog immediately positively responded to Melissa. I think the dog walking will go well!

Jodee at PawZup was amazing from the minute she walked in the door and met our three pups until the minute she left. Very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. She clearly loves what she does! Our dogs, ages 1 to 14 took an immediate liking, better yet loving, to her. I would highly recommend!!

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!

Christina has cared for our dogs for over two months and is wonderful with them. She is punctual and dependable and gives our dogs tons of attention, including walks, belly rubs, and fetch. She cares deeply about their well-being and we know they are in good hands with her. We whole-heartedly recommend her as a pet sitter/walker.

About

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.

About

I am a certified dog trainer, and I use only positive training methods. The clicker/reward is a great fun way to work with a dog! Being a good leader versus using dominance or pack leader is more productive and teachable. I also have a dog rescue and work with problems that rescues sometimes bring with them. I am a support system during any training process.

About

I am starting college in September at Hamline University. My goal is to become a veterinarian after I take my pre-vet courses and then veterinarian courses. I have a 9 month old lab right now that I have trained fully on my own. I have always had a dog growing up and feel like I can truly connect with animals. I adore animals of all kinds cats, dogs, ferrets, bunnies, any animal you can imagine. I have a passion for animals and I want to help them. When I am taking care of an animal I do everything I can to make them feel loved. I still know how to discipline an animal that can be naughty too. I believe just a firm tone letting the animal know he was naughty and a gentle slap on the wrist is just enough. I love walking animals, playing with them and making them feel loved.
