We had such a great time working with Earl and our new dog Riley. Earl was very helpful in showing us what was necessary to keep Riley from walking us, instead of us walking her! She is already showing signs of improvement and Earl's promise to be our lifelong trainer makes me feel very confident that we'll have his guidance and help every step of the way! I personally have never had a dog before, so and I was nervous about training her incorrectly (as new dog owners so often do). After our session with Earl I feel confident and ready to help our new addition become the best doggy she can be! I would definitely recommend Earl's services to anyone looking for some assistance on training their dog--young or old!
I am incredibly grateful for Melissa's help and genuine love for my dog! As a nurse, I work long shifts and Melissa is always up to visit my dog, Hallie and take her for a walk outside during my 13 hr stretches at work. I've had to be very picky looking for a dog walker who can look after my dog appropriately as she (my dog) does not always get along with other dogs and needs strict supervision/discipline on a leash outside the house. Hallie is skiddish of new people as well and she warmed up to Melissa within minutes of our first visit. Melissa is very open and easy to communicate with and is flexible with scheduling. I also find her very reasonably priced (always a plus). I could immediately tell Melissa has a genuine love for animals and her relationships with them. I completely trust her in my house and with my pets. I feel so lucky to have touched base with her! Would highly recommend her!
Jeff at Show Me K9 Dog Training has helped my dog go from pulling on walks, lunging and barking at dogs, etc. to walking without pulling, looking up and listening for direction, and now knows come, sit, off, wait, heel, and place after only two lessons. Jeff is always willing to answer questions in between sessions at any time of day, gives great directions for me during the week, and very helpful feedback on our progress during lessons. Feels good to throw away the harness and relax on walks with my Buddha! I HIGHLY recommend Show Me K9 Dog Training!
Just booked Melissa for our first training session this week! We have a brand new red standard poodle Arri and my boyfriend and I are very new to training the dog. We decided to go with Melissa because she uses positive reinforcement for training and this is really what we wanted for our dog (plus her rates are unbelievably good!) Melissa has been willing and eager to work with us from day one. She has addressed all of our concerns over phone and promptly answered our emails (I even sent her an entire list of things I wanted to accomplish and she has taken the time to read it, notes and all!) She showed up at our session this Monday and immediately got to work. Our dog was very taken with her and you could really tell Arri was actually having fun! She left us with specific things to work on this week and even when I had concerns on my own, she addressed them on the phone. I am so very excited to see where these training sessions will go and how Melissa will help us mold Arri into the dog of our dreams! Will write another review to post his progress!
We are now on the road to having a well trained dog and will use this service again in the near future for more advice and experience.
These guys are great! They leave journal and write in it every day so I know how my pup did on walk/visit. Show up on time. Very responsive and okay with last minute changes. I also used their obedience training for my dog and we are improving every day!
professional people with great dog instincts. They are experienced and able to work with any dog. I have seen them take the time and patience to get an aggressive dog to a positive outcome. I would trust them with my dogs. Highly recommend.
I can't say enough good things about mother-daughter team Kristen and Natalie. It's obvious that they're doing this because they love being with animals. The first day I was gone they sent me a video of Natalie playing with my dog which I absolutely loved! I have never felt more comfortable with any dog sitter I have hired in the past. I knew that I could trust these two in my home and with my much beloved dogs. Kristen is professional, super friendly, and always responds quickly to messages. I have zero complaints and will use K&N Pet Sitting any time I need a sitter in the future!
I have a service dog that I trained and I would like to help people train their own dogs and train service dogs for them or help them train their own service dog.
Diana did a great job dog sitting our boys. We were very surprised when we came home after a long weekend with the family and noticed that she hand wrote all of the daily activities that she did with our babies. You can definitely tell that she cares very strongly about animals, hence her current profession! Thanks Diana for the great care :)
I have been grooming for 4 years and been in dog training coarses
I offer positive dog training classes. I also do pet setting. I will come in while you are working or taking a vacation. I will come in and feed your pets and play and walk your dog.
I have many years of experience in pet sitting. If your pet stays with me, I have a collie mix who I have had for 7 years. Exercise is important when caring for animals. I am very active with my pet. I take my dog out for at least an hour everyday. If you have any questions, please text or call me.
I have a black lab mix name Missy and she is not the best behaved dog outside of our house. We have issues with her pulling while she walks and also with aggression towards other dogs. Missy has started to work with Mike. Missy immediately showed improvement by not pulling and letting me lead the walk. He has also given me tips for walking Missy which have worked great including having her sit before crossing the street and getting her to lay down when other dogs approach. Additionally Mike has brought Missy to interact with his dogs as a start and she has shown no aggression towards them. I am not saying everything is solved, but Missy is off to a great start thanks to Mike!!!
We walk dogs, feed dogs, play with dogs, and give medications to dogs. We love cats, too! We can take care of short-term or long-term pet sitting needs in your home only; we already have our own menagerie!
