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!

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.

We were leaving our dog Toby for the first time with someone we didn't know as a family member to care for him. Needless to say, we were cautious but Heidi runs a professional and dog friendly home environment! She's calm, listens carefully, and has a lot of experience working with many types of breeds. She quickly understood that Toby was a "lap dog" and adapted to his need to sit on someone! :) We can't thank Heidi enough for her caring service and adaptability. We'll be back!!

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!

Rita was a huge help when I needed it most with training my new puppy. She is an excellent trainer and was very supportive as I was getting acclimated to the life change. She's patient and has a lot of advice to share. I would recommend Rita for puppy training and all her other services!

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.

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!!!!!

Dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, caring, and maybe part K-9. I couldn't recommend a better trainer for your dog not matter if the task is big or small. I have worked with her for over 4 years with many dogs and situations. She has personally trainer 2 of my dogs. One from a puppy and another we had behavioral issues with who is stubborn. She took on both tasks with full dedication and heart. Can not recommend enough!

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!

Lynne is fantastic at dealing with my dog. She works with me and is very interested in making sure that my dog feels comfortable in his environment. I am very comfortable with her and am very happy that I picked her to help me deal with my dog's aggressive and fear behavior.

John Ketzner played a key role in the development of my dog and myself as a dog handler. John presented me with the tools and techniques necessary to be successful, then helped me perfect and tune these skills to make them work for me. John takes an individual based approach to dog training, realizing that not all dogs nor handlers are alike. His genuine care for the well-being of the animals shows in the rapport and relationships he develops while working with them.

Denise is one of the most dedicated professional trainers I have ever had the privilege of working with. She has helped me take my dog to levels I never thought were possible!

Cameron watched my two puppies for a few days in a row and did an outstanding job! He is very friendly and connected with Paxson and Miles instantly! My two puppies usually have separation anxiety from being away from me, but they love staying at Cameron's because he makes it feel like home. He plays with them and let's them run around the yard, and gives them all the love and attention that I would. I had an excellent experience having Cameron as a dog sitter and I really felt like my puppies were in good hands! I will definitely bring my puppies back to Cameron when I need another sitter!

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.

Jeff did an excellent job with my dog Mac. I visited several trainers and what he achieved with him in eight weeks others said was impossible. they said I should just keep him as a house pet and buy another dog. What he can get a dog to do is amazing and because of him, Mac is now a house pet who loves to hunt, retrieve and swim. I couldn't ask for a better dog.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
