Rachelle is extremely knowledgeable about dog training. We saw an improvement in our dog's behavior within the first hour of training. She gave us practical advice and explained why dogs act the way they do.

Rachelle did such an amazing job! We started with our one year old dog then got an 8 week old puppy in the middle of our sessions. She was able to train us to train our dogs in such a comprehensive and nice way. She showed us the best way to get our dog to do what we ask, and she was knowledgeable about all our questions we had. I cannot recommended her enough!

Details: 1 - 2 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • Leash pulling • Barking • Destructive behavior • Crate training • My home, venue, etc.

I would recommend Rachelle for your pet training needs. She was very helpful w training our Golden to step into the car. She was patient and knowledgeable about the use of positive reinforcement and shaping of behaviors to help us reach our goals w our dog. We made huge progress in only one session, and Rachelle gave us and taught us several very useful techniques.

Details: 2 - 10 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • My home, venue, etc.

Rachelle’s experience has brought us so much relief. We recently rescued a large dog with bad separation anxiety. Rachelle showed us tricks and tips and worked with him in our home. She is calm and loving towards our often stubborn pup. There is no way to calculate the value of stress relief we have after just one session and how grateful we are that she took the time to help.

Details: 1 - 2 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • Leash pulling • Chewing • My home, venue, etc.

I'm always nervous about going out of town and boarding my dog, who isn't a fan. And now that I have a passel of foster kittens, too, I wasn't feeling comfortable about leaving. But Rachelle was able to provide pet care in my home for all of my critters and it was a fantastic experience. She regularly sent photos of my happy pets during my time away through the ap she uses and when I arrived home to a perfectly ordered house, my animals greeted me with joy but not desperation. There was no "post-boarding adjustment time" that my dog usually experiences. There is no question that I would happily become a regular customer of Loving Arms Pet Services.

Details: Dog • 6 pets or more • Providing companionship • Taking pet outside • Giving food and water • Changing litter or bedding • Overnight visit (10-12 hours) • My home, venue, etc.

Thank you for trusting me with all of your critters! I had fun loving on them and hopefully will again next time you go out of town. 😊 Rachelle

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I can customize packages based on what you need. Let me know what you need and we will see if I can help! Pet sitting visits start at $25, overnight pet care starts at $75 (varies on location, season and animals), Dog training packages available with sessions as low as $100 per session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get to know what my customers are looking for and if I'm able to provide them that and maybe even more. If I can, we schedule a meet and greet and go over what the expectations are for the care of the pets. I can meet the pets and they can meet me so the first time we're meeting isn't when their humans aren't home. If it's a good fit for all, we can book the services. For training a phone consultation can provide what needs to be worked on and I can customize a training plan for the specific dog and family. Positive training and teaching dogs to understand what's being asked of them and humans how to understand their dog is key.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Over 20 years in animal rescue, including volunteering in shelters has been tremendous in training me for a variety of animals and situations. Not having an owner to tell you their likes/dislikes and needs means you have to figure it out on your own and rather quickly. Their safety and yours depends on it! Working with dogs to get them adoptable when they've been abused or neglected is the most rewarding job.

No problem: we have pros for every job.
