The moment I posted that I needed help with my puppy, Dawn answered me and was able to come to my home THAT DAY! She was so good with our dogs and not only taught them many tricks and manners we had been trying for months, but also taught me and my family so much about her breed and how to continue our training with our dog. She knew her facts and has a lot of knowledge on dogs. Very impressed and will 100% recommend Dawn to everyone who needs dog training.
Execellan help at a fraction of the price. I looked into other trainers that cost 10 times as much for the same advice. Regardless of who you use, if you are not willing to put in the work your dog will not get the training needed. All my boys have a hand now in training our dog and she has accepted the training and each day becomes more behaved than the day before.
I run a dog training business (sk9t.net) and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!
We got a puppy and were having a lot of potty training issues. Myke was able to put our minds at ease, as I was quickly coming to my wits end. He was very patient with our dog and showed us a lot of good training exercises to work with the puppy’s behavior and potty training problems. Even Myke agreed that our dog was a little stubborn on potty training but didn’t give up until we learned a strategy that worked for our pup. We are happy to report that our puppy is doing a lot better. Some in house accidents, due to her not fully undersnading how to get our attention to go outside, but she at least sits by the back door and tries to wait for us. Life has been difficult with a one year old toddler and a puppy but Myke helped us a lot and we just have to continue with his techniques and I’m sure this pup will be a cherished pet for many years!
United K9 has been great so far! It's not like obedience training and really does take a more deep-rooted approach to change behavior rather than simple commands and repetition. We have a lab/boxer mix who's very high energy and tends to be anxious and dominant. We have worked with Ashley and she's gone over the basic rules of the house as well as nutrition and other key pieces of information - our dog has responded well to the rules so far and it's allowed her to have more confidence in us as her leaders. Ashley has also been very prompt with setting up last minute visits to go over some of our dog's more difficult behaviors and we appreciate her patience while we continue to work through things! We would definitely recommend United K9, especially if you have a stubborn pup and think you'll need multiple sessions.
I hired Erik to train my Golden Retriever when I was referred by a friend who said he also used Erik's services and the results were impressive. So I contacted Erik in hopes that he could help my dog who had difficulty being around other dogs, was very nervous, and would constantly lick her paw. Basically my dog was a bundle of nerves. She had difficulty sitting still and trying to teach her anything seemed impossible. So I thought I would take my friends advice and give Concise K9 a try. Within a few sessions the progress was obvious. She had commands instilled in her and seemed to be proud of herself! She also finally stopped licking her paw, which was a habit she had for a while. My dog was always happy to see Erik and his interaction with her was great. I always felt comfortable leaving her with him for the lessons. I would highly recommend this man for his expertise in dog training as my dog is now a well behaved, secure girl and her good qualities shine. Erik is also a true professional and honest in his dealings.
I worked with Alex for years, if you want the best bond and training for your dog, look no further.
I can't recommend Paula/Working Dog Care highly enough. She's conscientious, responsible and treats the dogs in her care like her own. I have an Australian Shepherd and she's spent quite a bit of time helping me get him off to a good start. We've worked in social settings, honed his manners in public (no jumping, etc), and worked on a toning down some of his natural instincts as a herder (barking etc). The training has been enormously beneficial, especially the overnight stays. He comes back to me happy, healthy and better behaved. Paula/working dog care is my #1 choice for dog training and/or boarding.
LeighAnn always does the best job pet sitting for me while I am gone. She sends pictures and updates. She always goes above and beyond and exceeds my expectations when she cares for my 3 dogs and 2 cats. I love that she travels to me so my dogs never have to leave their safe space. She does her very best to accommodate all of my pets needs and has the best pricing in the area. I have never had any worries about her being in my house. She is very trustworthy and I will continue to use her and refer her for all pet sitting needs.
Ann has been caring for my cats weekly and when I am out of town. She has a great knowledge of dogs and cats and provides excellent care. She is trustworthy and punctual. I will continue to employ her.
Russiana is a super dog lover! my dogs were treat as kings in her care!
Excellent service provided. I have had the honor to see training sessions with Mr. McCall and it is amazing to see how he can easily train you to train your dog. I have also seen the outcome of him raising an intelligent American Bulldog, dash. The things dash was able to do after Mr. McCall worked with him would blow your mind. Dash is always loved and truly missed. Much success to your Mr. McCall.
I will treat your pet as I treat my five babies. I will make sure that they are fed and have clean water. I can give any medications. I have a dog of my own that requires that. I will walk them and play with them. I can do anything you need me to do. I can also take care of other animals; I grew up on a farm. I have no problem with anything but lizards and snakes.
I am very about passionate about animals, specifically dogs! I am one of the few (and very lucky, I must say) who are able to get paid to do what they love. I am a part-time vet assistant and foster as well. I would love to be able to help both you and your pet(s) out by giving them that extra attention and/or time when you're not able to! I can provide anything, from walks to possible overnight sitting, medication administration, flexibility if your pet(s) have specific needs, along with not only my personal experience but professional as well.
We specialize in behavior and socialization. We don't use a "one size fits all" approach; we observe both humans and dogs to try and identify the root cause of the issue. We then work with you to develop a force-free training approach.
I do dog training, behavior modification, and dog walking! More services are coming soon.
I walk/run dogs. I watch them to make sure their safe. I also feed the dogs to keep them healthy. I love all sorts of dogs and play with them.
I dog/cat sit. I will walk, feed, and take care of the dog(s). I am a very reliable and a responsible person.
I provide dog training with all ages. I teach ability, agility and obedience. Dogs are able to respond well after a couple sessions.
Whenever the need arise, Call Imma's. No job is too large or small. You've tried the rest, now try the best.
From dog walking to sleepovers, I'm here for your pet's every need! I have 25 years of experience and a lifetime of love for animals of all shapes and sizes!
