I contacted Earl after we brought home a 9 week old Beagle puppy. We felt overwhelmed and didn't know how to deal with the "puppy stage" of having a dog. Earl was quick to respond to my messages and we were able to meet with him the same week. Before we even met him in person, he emailed us videos and articles about training that were incredibly helpful. He was so good with our puppy in person. He was a great listener and really worked hard to address every single issue and concern we had. He even worked with my two young daughters to help them interact with the puppy. He didn't just recite a bunch of dog training information. He listened and addressed our needs for our particular situation. Less than a week after he came, I emailed him with more puppy concerns. Instead of emailing me ideas or suggestions, he actually came back again for a follow up visit to help us work with the puppy. Yes... he really came over a second time in one week. (No charge). You can tell that it's more than just a job for him. He is incredible with our puppy... and truly cares about helping our family. I am so glad to have met him and to have him as a resource any time I need doggie advice or help. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone needing any kind of training help with their dog or puppy. I'd give more than 5 stars if I could.

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!

Pets are Grand is simply the best. It is so comforting knowing Kati treats my pup as if it is her own! It is much easier leaving for several hours knowing my dog is in great hands! Highly recommended!

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 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!

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 had to go out of town on a business trip, and my cat Gigi, and my yorkie, Bella, needed to be let out and fed twice a day. They hate the noise at dog boarding, so home care is what I prefer. Adrienne came every morning , and again on the evening , fed them, and played with them also. I was so happy to Find Adrienne at Halo Per sitting, to keep my fur kids calm and no disruption In their schedule. I plan on calling her every trip I have.

Carol is very great with my pet! She is very good in communicating how each meeting went and is available to provide advice. My dog is very happy every time he gets to hang out with Carol. I would recommend her to a friend.

About

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 assisted people in making nutritional diets easy and fun, been an extra hand in running errands or shuttling kids from one activity to another, along with caring for your home and loved ones while you provide for them. In taking care of your pets I under that they are part of the family and will treat them with the nurturing care they deserve. Hectic family lives and long hours at work make it hard to give your family and pets the exercise and attention they need. Let me save you time so that everyone at home is more happy and healthy.

About

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!
