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.

What is there not to say?! Shawn knows how to train but more importantly, she knows how to train people. A dog is trainable . . . give the dog the command and the dog will follow. Reinforcement and the training of people is where the key to success of dog training is or not. Got it Shawn. Your words did not fall short on this girls ears. If you are looking for someone who will get you to start believing that your pet can truly behave then you need not look farther. Shawn Kwiatkowski will get both pet and owner walking in line together... The end result a behavin' relationship.

Very "down to earth" dog trainers. They use appropriate correction and positive reinforcement. Best of all, we could tell they really enjoyed our dogs

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!

Ashley was wonderful with my anxious and hyperactive dog! He was tearing everything up and jumping on everyone that came over. Not to mention humping me. I tried obedience training, and figured I was the problem, but I didn't know how (or how to fix it). After ONE visit from Ashley, he has already improved, and I am excited to show off his progress once he has really gotten into his new routine

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 used Shannon to dog sit our two Cane Corsi on several occasions. She is great with them! She's very attentive and affectionate to them. They absolutely loved her!! We've had Shannon stay overnight at the house many times. And not only is she great with the dogs but she has always left the house in the same condition, if not better too! We will always have Shannon as our "go-to" for dog sitting!

We brought our standard poodle to Joyce after a recommendation. We've been looking for a new groomer for our standard as we've heard he can be difficult to groom and may be afraid of grooming equipment. We keep him in a pretty regular puppy cut but our previous groomer was never able to round out his top knot, straighten the ends of his ears, or shave his face and feet very close. We dropped our dog off at Joyce's house and she texted us when he ready. It didn't take that long at all, especially given that Monty is 68 pounds and needs every part of his groomed in some way. This was the best groom job I've seen on him! She told me he wasn't misbehaved at all and handled everything really well. I like that he's the only dog she focuses on during the grooming time and even stops to have a play or bathroom session when he needs it. I feel like Joyce genuinely cares about my dog which is the best thing I could ask of a groomer. He also came out with a cute bowtie. I'll definitely be taking Monty back to Joyce for his next session.

Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!

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.
