    Whether walking your dog or caring for all of your pets needs while you're away you'll never have to worry about their safety, health, happiness and well being. I go beyond the basics in caring for your family member. If there are special needs such as medical attention I'm certified in pet first aid and am able to give medicine orally or by intramuscular injection. I'm well versed in remedies for common illnesses such as diarrhea. I have a number of ongoing clients I visit regularly and ones I provide intermittent visits for as well as those in a pinch who will vouch for my loving dedication to caring for their precious babies. Born out of a love for animals my service is provided in a professional, responsible and loving manner. You can trust me in your home and with your treasured pets, I'm insured and bonded. Most of all I simply love what I do.

  • Earls K9 Services AKA The Original Kansas City Dog Whisperer

    (85 reviews)

    I solve dog problems. I work with working, herding and fighting breeds and dogs with strong temperaments that most trainers fear. Dogs with biting issues are my specialty. Call me before you take some other trainers advice to put your dog to sleep because of a biting problem. When other trainers or veterinarians tell you your dog has a mental problem call me before you accept the diagnosis or put your dog on medication. I can help. If your trainer is not familiar with the concept of "Pack Structure", find one that is. All dogs need pack structure. You must learn and implement pack structure with any dog or you will always have behavior problems. Your dog may love you but you you need him to respect you as well. This is especially true of rescue dogs that have already learned many unwanted behaviors. Knowing how to build a relationship is essential. These are issues that a board and train situation can't help you with. Nor do you need multiple sessions with a trainer. You just need the right information. This stuff is easy when you know what you're doing and is better done on your own and on your own schedule. It's really about you learning to be consistent because dogs learn through repetition. This is where my programs excel and I'm also only a phone call or a text away if you're having a problem. For more info please visit my website. Be sure to click on the 'How it works' tab. Earl Newland The thing I like most about my job are the many wonderful dogs and people I get to meet. The variety is amazing and you would be surprised to see how many great dogs are rescue dogs. I see a lot of pure bred dogs of many types and the mix breeds I see are very interesting too. I offer free phone consultations for anyone with a rescue dog. I want to help rescue dogs integrate into the new family situation and help solve any behavior issues they bring with them to the new home. If I can take the stress out of your relationship with your dog, I'll sleep well knowing it's a forever home. I will to be available for coaching and support for the life of your dog. One of the most important and enjoyable services I provide is puppy training. I love helping people and their puppies get off to a good start with House breaking, Crate training and everything else that goes along with raising a puppy properly so it doesn't learn unwanted behaviors. With my comprehensive puppy program your puppy will be a well adjusted dog by the age of 1 year provided you begin my program early (age 2 to 4 months). Remember, the longer you wait the more unwanted behaviors are learned and the longer it takes to correct those unwanted behaviors. Earl Newland

  • Manners PuPlease

    (23 reviews)

    I am cost effective, genuine and easy to work with. I train with positive reinforcement, but also make suggestions with harder cases. I help the owner learn how and the why behind training. Must love dogs.They can't talk but do communicate in different ways. Figuring out what skills a dog is good at and achieving is rewarding. And all dogs are not alike nor learn alike.

    The length of time and our success rate has allowed us many different experiences from behavioral quirks to medical issues. The more knowledge we obtain the better we get at everything we do. Working with the pets is the best part of the job of course. Its great to meet all different breeds and types of animals and also different personalities within those breeds.

  • For The Dogs Training

    (12 reviews)

    I believe Proper Leadership is the most important part of a canine and human relationship. A leader to a dog must always be calm, assertive, fair, respectful, and understanding. It doesn't take a dog psychologist to be a good leader. A good leader simply sets rules, boundaries, and limitations with expectations of those to be followed through. If these are not followed through discipline needs to happen. If a dog is not given a consequence they will continue with the behavior. If your leadership consist of putting out fires, you are following the fire starters. True leadership is being an example, setting expectations, and minimizing opportunities for conflict. With that said, My philosophy is using both Dog Psychology methods with dog friendly, positive reward training. I believe in building trusting and respectful relationships between you and your dog and treating dogs as companions and family members. Dogs have a pack mentality and I use that and the methods dogs use with each other, to communicate with the dogs. I use a method that is humane, not harmful, and something the dogs understand. My Mission -Educate dog owners, enthusiasts, public about dogs, so our community can better understand how to handle them and work with them to improve things instead of throw them away. -Reduce surrender of pets for behavior issues -Increase adoption numbers from shelters after rehabilitating problem dogs. -Clarify and educate dog language to owners -Enhance canine and human relationships Services offered: * personalized dog training * private in-home training * puppy foundation * basic obedience * advanced obedience * group classes * boarding * board and train * dog rehabilitation * behavior modification I am an ABC certified dog trainer. - Maris Ewing
