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.

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!

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 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.

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!!!!!

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.

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 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!

I find Patti a very approachable & extremely honest person. I took Spirit to her home on a Tuesday afternoon to get the training in motion. had several contacts with her & shared with me Spirit was a very special, intelligent & well behaved dog. around me & my other dog, Bentley, Spirit had a lot of puppy actions in him. Patti explained to me she took him along everywhere, including exposing him to her 80 something year old mother & friends at assisted living & he did great! anyway she called on Friday & suggested Spirit is such a well behaved dog & does everything I taught him (sit, down, stay, attentive to her & the biggest one, come) that I would be wasting my money to have her continue basic training. so that sunday I picked him up & he was there just 5-6 days. so everything had a way of working out for all of us. in training him when he was a very young puppy he was everywhere except focused on me. little by little I would work with him & to my surprise it has stuck with him. Spirit will be 2 on april 1 & I picked him up at 8 weeks old so he has been around me basically his whole life. I'm 70 & have raised puppies all my life. I now have cancer & heart disease so my energy level has been declining for a while so I just felt he needed more attention & training from someone besides me & I chose Patti. I would definitely recommend her & she is a pleasant person to be around. this was Spirits first time away from home without his pal Bentley & Patti said he did very well. appreciate your time & take care.

Sammi always does a great job taking care of the huge menagerie that we have. She's flexible and is easy to work with (and puts up with all the changing and long-winded instructions I leave). The animals all love her. She leaves great notes about how things went while we were gone. We've been using her for years and love her.

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.

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.

My prices are very low due to the fact that I am 15. But even though I am so young I have experience with dogs and I am striving to make this my profession in the future. So while I'm helping you, you are also helping me!

For my experience my fees are very fair. I do one on ones and teach classes.
