I spoke with a handful of dog trainers and I felt the most connection with Shahar. So I hired her : ) We talked on the phone about the behaviors and set up our first training session. She came to our home and was very personable and professional. From our conversation on the phone, she pretty much already knew what corrective training we would work on, therefore, we didn't spend most of the time talking and got a nice portion of the time doing the actual training. It will be tough for all of us as we are about to flip our pups life upside down but Shahar assured me that he will be much happier this way. I will be working with Shahar on follow up trainings until our pups behavior issues has been corrected!

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.

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! :-)

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.

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.

We love CampPhoebe! We’ve been using CampPhoebe 2-3 times/year for over four years and have always had extremely positive experiences. Each time our dog comes home after a stay, he’s in a great mood – never stressed out like he was when we had him at a larger facility. We know he gets plenty of exercise, love and attention and gets along well with the other ‘campers’ J It’s apparent Tammy loves taking care of dogs, including ours - which is yet another reason to love CampPhoebe!

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.

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 have had BJ pet sit for me for over 10 years( 2 dogs and 2 cats). Shes reliable, observant and caring. I plan my vacations around her availability. Having her take care of my furry babies and my home sets my mind at ease and helps aid in relaxation while I'm on vacation. I don't trust anyone else with the most precious things in my life.

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.

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.

      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 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!
