I was looking for a trainer to train me to train my service dog. The only response I got was from Earl, who is not a trainer of service animals. Earl purchased the referral because he knew someone who WAS an expert service dog trainer and he wanted to put me in touch with her. I did meet with her, and she is exactly what I need. So many times these days people will not take any kind of action to help a stranger unless they somehow benefit from it themselves. I was so touched that Ed went out of his way to help me even when it COST him rather than directly benefitted him. In addition, he told me that he would appreciate it if I would keep in touch with him so he could follow the progress of our training. Two miracles in one. I am thrilled that he helped me find the right trainer, and even more thrilled that he cares about the outcome. I told him that if my dog proves to be unfit for service work (so far she is very well suited) that I would hire him to to the kind of quality training I would want her to have anyway. I believe in doing random acts of kindness myself, and it appears that Earl does as well.
She only had her for 3 days, and in those 3 day's we've noticed a change in her attitude when she comes inside from being out for a while . She's a lot less hyper, she improved on basic commands ( sit, lay, bed, stay ) . We'll definitely use Melissa as our dog trainer in the future. Mind you our dog is a pit bull.
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!
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!
Lea is an amazing dog trainer. I watched as she kindly and gently worked with an older dog to help control his barking habit. She had this dog listening and responding in such a short time. Lea is a DOG WHISPERER and is so kind to these animals. Highly recommend her!
I sent out the request to find a dog trainer and I received a quick response from the Turn Around Dogs. I'll have a follow up review after they come to my place and do the consultation.
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!
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 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!!!
Creature Comforts was amazing. We went out of the country for 10 days and Carol went above and beyond taking care of our pets including playing the dog's favorite games and buying pine shavings for the rabbit and letting us reimburse her when we got back. Highly recommend.
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 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 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.
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!
I provide training of dogs in basic and some advance classes. I teach owners about the bad things we must not teach our or your dogs.
I've done training for basic family living, obedience, conformation, and agility. I helped new owners with dogs from rescue or shelters who need help adjusting to living in a household with love. I've also worked with food aggression and guarding of toys, beds, etc.
I offer reliable and affordable dog walking services. I am a former detective and law enforcement officer, and I will be responsible with your pet and in your home. A lifelong dog owner, I understand how a pet is really more like a member of the family. I love dogs and would love the opportunity to work with you.
I've been pet sitting for 22 years so I have experience with many different breeds and ages of dogs. This is my full time job, not something I squeeze in on the side. I am home with the dogs I board most of the time. I am very flexible with pick up and drop off times so it is convenient for my clients. I have 5 star ratings on Facebook, Yelp and Google. Check them out!
Hello my name is Sadie and I absolutely love dogs! I am a marketing major here at the university of Kansas. I have a husky/German Shepared named Lilli, back home in Minnesota. It's been hard being away from her for so long and not being able to go running, walking or playing with her, so I thought why not help others! :)
I have been grooming for 4 years and been in dog training coarses
