After a bad experience with a pet kennel, I tried in home care and hired Drew and Shannon Hyde at Leash Life. Just an amazing difference! I was nervous to have someone in my home but they were wonderful, sending me pics and video every day to let me know my cat, Melman, was doing well. When I returned home, I found my mail placed on the credenza and a very happy cat. If you can avoid caged care---even if it's an expensive cat condo---I highly recommend Drew & Shannon's service. Despite assurances from the kennel facility that my cat would not come in contact with other cats, he came home with a nasty abscess my vet said could only have come from another cat's claw or bite. Lesson learned. I will now only use Leash Life in the future.

The service that I have been receiving with Leash Life is exceptional. The couple who run the company are reliable, professional, and super nice to beat! I am 100% comfortable with them having access to my home and love that my pet is getting quality one on one time each day while I am away at work. And if the pictures they text me while they are with him are any indication, Scrumpy really loves it too!!

Kevin has been walking my dogs every day that I work for several months now and I am very pleased with his service. When I first met Kevin it was obvious that he very much enjoys his job and spending time working with dogs. He gave me lots of great training tips and my pups Otto and Hemingway adore him. Kevin is fantastic and I would highly recommend him if your looking for a dependable, trustworthy trainer or dog walker. He will treat your pets like family.

Kevin did an amazing job with my dog! He gave us so much valuable information and she is such a calm, well behaved dog now. We went through 4 crates and figured she wasn’t going to be a dog that can be crate trained. She’s in a crate thanks to Kevin!!!

Mark took care of my dachshund in our home for a week. He made 3 daily 30 min visits to feed, walk and love on him. Each visit I received a text and pics to see how my little one was doing. It was very reassuring to know Hokie was well cared for while being in the comfort of his own home. Mark was patient and able to accommodate the changes I made to the schedule more than once. This is my first experience using a pet sitter and Im so pleased that I found someone to provide quality service and "peace of mind" while away on vacation! I will definitely be using Mark's services again for summer vacations!

This was the first time that my husband and I have left our 11 year old cat since we moved to Charlotte; I am so glad Mark was there to take care of her. The consultation was great, and he won over our shy cat right away. I loved receiving the photos of her at every visit. Will absolutely be calling Mark next time we go out of town.

Mark is great with our greyhound. Takes the time to ensure she is properly exercised and had her potty time. He even cleans up after her. He speaks to her and handles her as if she were his pet. She is much happier when we get home after Mark has visited. Great service and Great owner!

We feel very fortunate to have met Laura. She is a passionate pet lover. Laura is dependable, trustworthy and has a very strong work ethic. She has been our pet sitter for the past year and we've used her for visits and walks as well as overnight stays. She works well with both cats and dogs~ and we have a very active German Shepherd and a dual cat household (indoor kitties). When we lost our miniature schnauzer this past week; Laura came by to say goodbye since she and Jack had bonded and she was very concerned. Laura goes above and beyond~ you won't be disappointed!

Thanks for going above and beyond for us, Laura! Will definitely be using her again for our future pet sitting needs!

Fluffs of Luv quickly arranged to schedule a consultation with one of their pet-sitters in an emergency situation. I was taking an out-of-trip, and the sitter I originally arranged care from ... was a no-show. The Fluffs of Luv sitter was obviously a pet lover, and she bonded with Arya (and me) immediately. The scheduling process was easy; rates are reasonable; and Arya was well taken care during my vacation. I will DEFINITELY use this service again, and would recommend them without reservation.

My very energetic lab, Sonny, and I loved training with Adriane. After 2 other training classes left me frustrated, we were recommended by a friend. Sonny struggled with pulling while on a leash and could (if he tried hard enough) open the front glass door and chase after anything moving. Calling him or getting him to whilingly come back would take forever! Safety was also a big concern, we have a good size yard, but it was not uncommon for Sonny to end up running towards the road. Adrianes approach is systematic, but tailored to each dog. Exactly what my sweet, but difficult baby needs! Her sessions are fun and engaging-and most importantly, Sonny is always excited to see her, and to me that speaks volumes! We are still training, but as of right now I have a dog that calmly walks and runs by my side without pulling me. He has taken off, pushing past the door once- but I calmly called him back- AND HE CAME BACK TO SIT AT MY FEET! I can not tell you how impressed I am. I know a concern for me was time and money, but this has been worth it. I love feeling like I can trust Sonny to be out and about with me. He is calmer when meeting people and other dogs and just all around less impulsive. I am very thankful for Adriane and recommend her to anyone!

We have a male German Shepherd that had some dominance issues before training. Now he is a much better dog. He doesn’t pull me when we walk on his leash. He responds to his commands when before he would ignore us. We had some fence issues and he got out and he came right to us without running or giving us a hard time. I highly recommend Highland Canine of South Carolina!!

I recently rescued a dog, Ghost, who had some trouble with potty training and also pulling on his lead. I tried for weeks to potty train him. But working with Highland Canine it only took him a week to go outside. Also it’s so nice walking with him now that I got help with his pulling. Greatly recommend Highland to anyone who needs that little extre help.

Terry is awesome! We've hired her a few times to house sit and pet sit and we couldn't be happier. We have a house in a transitional neighborhood with an alarm, house plants, a garden, a cat and a dog and she manages everything beautifully. She is responsible, easy to work with and super affordable (charge more Terry!). She is clean and respectful while staying at our house, we really don't see any evidence that she was even there. She gives our home and pets special attention while we are away and keeps notes day by day that are fun to read upon our return. I would highly recommend Terry to anyone who is looking for peace of mind while on vacation and someone that will really take excellent care of the fur babies especially and your home.

Terry has been taking care of our dogs for over 10 years...that says it all. Having her stay in our home with our dogs makes our trips/vacations guilt free! She's honest, dependable, and most importantly a animal lover. Ellie and Wesley love it when Terry stays! If you are in need of a great caregiver for your pet this is your girl. Thanks for loving our pups Terry🐾❤️ Clarissa, Kevin, Ellie & Wesley

Terry is amazing! She has been taking care of our 'kids' for a few years or more. I never have to worry about them when we are gone which is a huge relief and allows us to enjoy time away. She always leaves a wonderful note about each day's events...it's always fun to look forward to reading. Highly recommend Terry!

We are attending a beginner puppy class with Robin and she is very knowledgeable and encouraging. She is all about positive reenforcement and helping the puppy to want to do what we are teaching them. We receive written materials every class covering the lessons practiced in class. She helps individually practice each new skill in class and works with our puppies to solve any specific struggle they may have with that skill. Our boy wags his tail and can't take his eyes off Robin as soon as she starts working with him. She is clearly a puppy whisperer! It is a very friendly and supportive class - there are no harsh techniques. It is very humane and also very effective. Our wild pup learned to sit on command the first class and now 3 weeks later sits and lays down with just hand signals and walks oh so peacefully on leash. He "stays" while waiting for his meals and has learned to "leave it" and "drop it." Admittedly he needs more practice on this last skill, but given that he is only 6 months old - that is not surprising. I highly recommend taking this class with Robin and your puppy.

Our dog Attie came from a rescue organization, & before that she'd been physically abused. This caused her to become inordinately terrified of all humans (especially men) & literally only wanted to cower in a corner. It was heartbreaking to see her jump at noises & the slightest movement. She would piddle & tremble all the time. After a few months working with Robin, Attie has become more confident & brave & taken on other "normal" dog characteristics. Robin gave us great exercises & tips to help Attie use her brain to think naturally instead of resorting to fear. Robin's specialized Bond Based Choice training is ideal for this particular situation, because it revolves around positive reinforcement. Attie has made amazing progress in the past several months, & we have Robin to thank for so much of it!

Robin is a highly intuitive and skilled dog trainer. She loves dogs and dogs love her. She is gentle in her approach, and it is highly successful. Robin is not only wonderful with her dog clients, she is equally loved by the dog parents. She has a great sense of humor and patiently teaches mom and dad how to treat their four-legged kids.

After I adopted Kody, I quickly realized that he didn't know anything. He came from a hoarding situation. I started looking for a trainer that would take him and teach him the basic commands and work on his kennel and potty training. I found Furbaby Country Club conveniently located in Terrell, NC. I called, explained my concerns and we started the training. The approach and the training methods she provided have made a huge difference in both the way I handle the dog and the way he responds. She focused on his socialization first, basic obedience and kennel and potty training. She really focuses on the importance of positive reinforcement and giving praise to your dog every time he behaves well. He is home now and is so much better. I highly recommend Furbaby CC. She takes the time to get to know your pup. I can always call her with questions and she will help you anyway she can.

We had a great experience. It was very apparent our 6 month-old little beagle did too. He came home so happy. He had learned many things needed to become a good family pet. Now, if we, the humans, can follow our instructions to keep reinforcing the learning. You know, it's hard to teach an old dog (human) new tricks. Heather was great with Shylo and we would recommend her to anyone looking for super dog training.

I can't say how happy I am with Kim and Paws at the Lake. I am new to the are and had to go out of town suddenly. I have two large dogs and didn't want to board them. I called another service and they wouldn't even watch my dogs. They said they were to big. I called Kim and she came out the same day to meet with me and the dogs. They absolutely loved her. While I was gone she took great care of them. She even texted me pictures.

We have only used this service for one weekend, so will not rate 5 stars, but so far, so good. Kim seems to run her operation very professionally (you can tell she is actually running this like a business and not just a side job, or just a way to make a little extra money). My wife liked that she sent pictures (via text message) of our dogs while she was visiting/feeding. So far, so good and we will use Paws at the Lake again.

When I contacted you, you were Leila's my daughter's 3yr old Great Pyrenees/Boarder Collie rescue, last chance. Since moving from a home where she could go in & out on her own & had an invisible fence to a townhouse where she had to be walked on a leash, she had become aggressive to the other family pets, lunged at strange dogs to try to fight, chased skateboarders, bicycles, & motorcycles. My daughter was moving into an apartment that fall & planned to take her when going back to college. I felt Leila was at risk of hurting another animal or person & couldn't risk my daughter taking her unless she changed dramatically. From the very 1st day Karen met Leila, she became a different dog. She not only taught Leila how to be a dog but taught me how to be a proper owner. If Leila had an incident, it was always due to owner error (me). What a major difference you had on our family, working with Leila on triggers, helping her learn to be a dog, & training the owners how to be responsible owners! Leila had always been a loving dog & family member. However, now she was happy! Happy because she knew how to be a dog, how to greet strange dogs, & how to respond to commands. As soon as Karen entered the house, Leila would light up. She ran straight to her, sat in a beautifully attentive stance directly in front of Karen & looked up at her with pure love. Amazing! Additionallt, Karen also worked with my daughter & her boyfriend before the move. After Leila moved in with Audrey, Karen followed up with a comprehensive summary & guidelines for Audrey to ensure Leila didn't backtrack due to the move. Thanks to Karen, I was confident Leila would not hurt a human or pet & felt comfortable sending her off to college with my daughter. I'm happy to report both are doing wonderfully & she's the favorite dog in the complex. Thank you Karen. You saved our family pet & make a special dog & young lady very, very happy!
