The service was excellent. Andrea was very knowledgeable and extremely patient with us and our 2 puppies. She was flexible with her scheduling and generous with good advice. We will be using Andrea again for the continuation of the dog training.

I had never used a pet sitter before and was desperate to find someone to watch my 3 dogs on the 4th of July so we could attend our nephews wedding in Pa. (who knew how difficult that would be!) Ali watched my 14 year old blind/deaf dog and my 8 month old and 8 week old puppy. She was so attentive and even sent me pictures while we were gone! 2 weeks later we had her come back for training of the babies and they went crazy when they saw her... it was like she was a member of the family. I have done a lot of internet searching for dog training and am amazed at what Ali was able to accomplish in just one hour. I cannot recommend her enough, she is wonderful!!!

Megan watched our deaf Great Dane Alice Gertrude for a week when we went to the beach. We rescued Alice Gertrude in February of 2015 and we didn't want to board her so soon. Megan watched our other Dane Magi and we knew she would be perfect for our Alice Gertrude. Megan stayed at our house for a week and took awesome care of our girl. Alice immediately loved Megan and they were best pals after 10 minutes. Megan embraced our Dane's "quirky" behaviors...sleeping horizontally, laying on her chest (Alice thinks she is a "lap dog"!!), & being the best leg-dryer after a shower! Megan is wonderful. ..always let us know how Alice Gertrude was doing, plenty of walks, lots of playtime, and I'm pretty sure an "extra treat" when Alice "blinked her baby blues" @ Megan. Megan is honest, trustworthy, dependable, & most importantly, will love, take care, & treat your pet like you do. Please consider Megan for caring for your 4-legged babies!! You will not be disappointed! ! Sincerely, Mark, Kendra, Parker, Sydney, & Alice Gertrude Brandt

Stephanie was fantastic with my dog Adi. She clearly knew what she was doing and she was more than happy to answer all of my questions. Training a dog is more than the pet it is so much about the owner and how they behave and she helped me to understand that. I would recommend her to everyone I know with a dog.

I can't even believe how amazing my personal training session went with Heather! I have been so nervous about going through training for my dog just because I wasn't sure what I was getting into and I thought I would feel embarrassed because of his behavior. She not only made me feel comfortable, but my dog as well. I have been trying for ever to get my dog to walk good on a leash and it is not even fun to walk him sometimes. Heather had my dog walking perfectly in a matter of minutes! It was crazy. She also brought one of her dogs because my dog goes crazy on dogs when we are on walks. She had him not even wanting to look at her dog after probably 1-2 minutes! I really did not expect things to go this way. I was expecting her to come here tell me what I was doing wrong and then tell me to work on it for the next week or so and then schedule another appointment for more. NOT at ALL. I just want to walk all day now. After she left we went on a walk and it was amazing. We are going to Pet Smart now to give it a go. Cannot wait to attend one of her group classes. Not to mention her prices are unbeatable. If you really love your dog, like me and my family do, give her a try, it will change your life with your dog. She ABSOLUTELY knows what she is doing.

Jan is an animal lover extraordinaire! She has cared for my dog for many years from pet sitting during the day to overnight stays for weeks at a time. I have to be able to trust someone with my dog, as he has a severe heart condition that requires different medications at different times of the day. He also needs to be kept in a calm environment, as too much excitement causes him to have cardiac "episodes." I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else but Jan because I can count on her to shower my little guy with lots of love and feel confident he is going to receive the extra special care he requires due to his medical condition. I can't say enough nice things about Jan, as her love for animals shines through in everything she does for all of the creatures in her life!

Went out of town for 2 weeks. Chris took very good care of my 3 dogs. He sent me videos of them playing all the time. Pictures of them sleeping. And basically let me know how they were doing daily. It's apparent he has a heart for animals. I have and trusted him many times with them and will continue to in the future.

Dogs are life. I will walk, feed, play, and care for dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do not discriminate! My favorite activity is to go to trails and walk with dogs. I have high energy golden retrievers who sleep in bed with me, share my food with me, and give me a reason to live. I am looking to bring more dogs into my life whose owners unfortunately do not have time to walk as much as they would like due to jobs or family concerns.

I have a genuine interest in helping clients and their pet ,I address the whole dog not just basic commands .Every dog is different and I believe training should be geared to each pet ,pet owner and their particular life style. In short I don't use a cookie cutter approach with my training.
