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.
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.
We have boarded our dogs with Darci for over 5 years. We also have hired her for some personal dog training when we got a new puppy. Darci's professionalism is always present, and her ability to communicate with our dogs and train them effectively is remarkable! I would trust her completely to care for any animal I have and I highly recommend her services!
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.
Heather did an awesome job grooming my dog! I am very happy with his haircut and my dog is happier to be groomed in home! Thank you!
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!
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.
I hired Lindsay to work with my dog, Rocky, on basic obedience. He was very territorial of parts of the house and needed work with some basic commands. Lindsay showed me how to communicate better with Rocky. I now know what he needs from me in order to feel safe and this has had a huge impact on his behavior. Lindsay uses positive reinforcement and counter-conditioning. She keeps the dog feeling safe and positive, showing him what he should be doing instead of what he should not be doing. She uses treats to get her points across to the dog. She does not use bark or shock collars or anything that would make the dog feel uncomfortable. I am very happy with my experience so far, and will continue using Kinney K9 Academy.
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. :)
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.
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!
Love the dog training classes by Terrific Tails! Great location, instructor is very knowledgeable and classes are affordable. Thanks!
Your pet is in good hands, i have experience with small to large breeds. I have encountered all levels of attitude and know how to deal with dogs of any type.
I will help you train your pup or dog to be the best dog he/she can be! I will get to know your dog on a personal level and learn its twerks and kinks. Knowing the dog's personality is the first step I take before I begin his/her training. Every dog is different. Some may take longer than others to train. If you are not satisfied with my work then don't be afraid to let me know, and I'll give you your money back.
We provide results! You will see improvement in the way your dog behaves after your first lesson. There are programs to fit your needs and certified trainers to coach you every step of the way, so stop waiting for your dog to 'grow out of it' and get training...get results.
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.
For my experience my fees are very fair. I do one on ones and teach classes.
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.
I provide pet care, dog walking, and pet sitting. I love animals and believe they should have the best care that they can.
I am willing to pet sit on the weekends at your home. I am currently attending Zimmerman High School. I belong to the youth group at the Zimmerman E-Free Church. Baseball is my sport: school ball, travel team ball and fall ball. I am just looking for some extra cash, and I will be willing to pet sit or just come and feed the animals.
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!
