Paddy is awesome! Her tips, experience, and patience have been invaluable with our new-to-us two year old Bernie. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for obedience training and dog walking services!

Christy has been working with us and our female Doberman, Louise, to instill basic obedience and help manage signs of increased aggression. One thing every dog owner should know before going into any training program is that the trainer cannot give you a secret command to make your dog behave the way you want it to; dog training requires time and discipline from both the owner(s) and the dog and finding the right trainer who can clearly communicate what needs to happen between you and your dog is key. We have spent many hours with Christy, both in a classroom setting and one-on-one in our home, to help correct our dog’s behavioral problem. Most recently, Christy was kind enough to help us host a “puppy party” at our house to help Louise find comfort in meeting new people inside our home. The party was a great success and I would recommend this approach to anyone who is having difficulty with a similar problem. Christy has provided us the tools and knowledge on how to correct a problem, and it is up to us to apply what we have learned into our training process. Christy is easy to work with, flexible with her time and schedule and is a true lover of dogs. We have recommended her to several people and if you are looking to resolve behavioral problems, establish basic discipline or conduct agility, we highly recommend Christy.

Sully has a "way" with handling dogs and puppies. She tells the clients what she wants them to do, demonstrates the technique with the clients' dogs, and then critiques the clients as each person tries the lesson with their dogs. My dog and I were in a group lesson, and I saw success with all of the participants. She taught us how to earn the respect of our dog. I'm signing up for the next session (off-leash training).

We met with Casey yesterday and set up training for our dog and are looking very forward to starting this process with Casey and his staff. We were very impressed with their philosophy of training not only the pet but the owners. Can't wait to get started!

Our experience with Laura and Jeff at Dogs In My Home has been a blessing. We had a 15 1/2 year old Golden Retriever that needed special care and they gave it. He loved spending time with them and I felt 100% comfortable leaving Buddy there for weeks while we were out of the country. I knew I could count on them to take as good or better care of him than we did! I look forward to taking our next puppy to Dogs In My Home!

I participated in a team taught Reactive Rover class where Bill was an instructor. Bill's calm demeanor and his kind positive way of providing training instruction and giving feedback to participants made the class a real pleasure. I learned a great deal that I intend to continue to apply to my dog's training. As a result of the class I am asking Bill to work with me and my dog one on one to further our learning. His force free positive training methods are the best way to teach a dog new behaviors and he has a very sophisticated understanding of how to do this.

Amy has been such a huge help. We had been having problems with my dog's seemingly erratic aggressive outbursts and were at a loss for what to do. Amy explained to us that he is "resource protective" and gave us all sorts of advice on how to work with him. She is thorough and detailed and has been very patient with my grandfather, who is sometimes a little slow to learn some of the training techniques. After quoting other dog training programs, I'm glad we went with Amy. Danny the Dog loves her and so do we!

There is simply no one in the Saint Louis area better qualified to help you with your dog training needs. Her classes are fun and effective, her one-on-one training is amazing. Early Animal Education is absolutely my go-to for all the help I ever need with my dogs - and I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, too.

Pet sitter for those who don't feel comfortable leaving their pets at home alone while they are at work or out of town. I do several visits per day. I also stay for a long period of time. This helps with stress and anxiety. I will transport myself to the client's house. In certain circumstances I can keep your pet/s at my house. I've recently moved to a house with a smaller yard. But there's a dog park within walking distance. I'm a huge animal lover of all kinds. I pride myself on being reliable and responsible. This is what I do simply because I care. Potty training, grooming, and basic commands are taught. I have fostered and rescued for both St. Francois Society and the APA for the past several years. Which means that my house has been inspected by both groups and deemed my house suitable for fostering and rescuing, including checking the temperament of my dogs. I realized while doing this, that there is a great need for pet sitters, especially for those pets whom are very small and/ or need lots of attention. If you are interested in leaving your pet/s with a well-qualified person who will give lots of love and attention to your baby, I am the person for you. I am flexible on times and duration of stays. If you are interested, I will give you my facebook address and you can view some of my past fosters, and my current babies. Thank you
