Joel did an outstanding job with my dog Haze. Haze was adopted from the Humane Society about 3 weeks ago and he was a very anxious and skittish dog when i brought him home. Haze is a 3 and a half year old Staffordshire Terrier. He barked a lot at other dogs and people as he was really afraid of them. I brought in Joel and just in a few weeks, Haze is now extremely calm and attentive. He now sits, lays and stays when dogs or people walk by and he even wags his tail on walks. He loves going outside for his walk and listens extremely well on the leash. I am very impressed with Joel's work and dedication to his craft. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Lena came to our house to help us with training our puppy. She was here for over 2 hours and she gave us a lot of very useful information. She was extremely patient with both of our children and our puppy. The information that she gave us was extremely relevant to what we wanted to know and when she left, we definitely felt like we had all the tools we needed to train our dog. She was very nice, prompt and I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a private dog trainer. I've actually already given her name to two of my friends who need help with their dogs.

I am so happy I went with Leashlife as my dog walker. My dog loves getting the extra attention and I never have to worry about him while I am at work. They leave notes and give updates on a regular basis, I would recommend them to anyone. I also love seeing their Instagram post of their other dogs they are all adorable and happy!

I have worked with Holland K9 services for 3.5 years and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone. When we adopted our dog Buddy, he was so high energy that we had to let him run off leash to burn that energy off and be a happy dog. However he was completely unresponsive to commands off leash, and would charge (friendly and excited, but still) any dog or person he spotted. After a bad experience with another dog training group, we found John. He helped us to transition to using an E-collar (shock collar) in order to enforce off-leash commands. I was initially nervous about that type of training due to our prior experience but with John it went great. Buddy was never fearful like he was with the other trainers. Our dog became wonderful and basically 100% reliable off-leash, and all of us were so much happier. We hired him again when we got our second dog, and he helped us train her as well as brush up Buddy on his skills again. Training with him is definitely worth every cent.

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.

Honestly it has been amazing. I told Mariah the problems I was having with my dog Grace. Not only did she set a clear path forward for what we needed to work on to correct it, but also identified things I needed but didn’t ask for. I’m a soon to be Veteran being medically retired and she’s helping me to train Grace to be my service dog. I had a lot of quotes from bigger trainers, but Mariah was the ONLY one that even addressed my dog by name and the issues I wrote about. So I guess I’ll say this, if you want someone knowledgeable, actually cares enough to read what you write and generally a pretty amazing person. You’ve come to the right place.

I honestly doubted anyone could help my dog, he's so scared of everything that moves. He has gained so much confidence, he's doing really good. We love meeting up with her and her dogs, seeing Swanson has really become one of Remy's favorite parts of the week! Thanks so much Jessica, couldn't ask for a better experience, dog training has been so much more fun than I thought it would be.

We were so pleased with how things went when we left our dogs in Laura's care! I appreciated how she visited beforehand to meet them, and how she took detailed notes on everything. One of our dogs tends to be very anxious and I could tell that he felt totally comfortable and safe while in Laura's care. She really is a compassionate professional who listens - I highly recommend her services!

Jarod came to our home and gave a FREE (through & unhurried) evaluation of our two dogs. He answered all of my questions, gave us tips, advice, and even brought along one of his dogs to show us what ours would be learning. He is 100% the most genuine, caring, passionate dog trainer I have met and I recommend his services to anyone looking to their dog trained, behavior modifications, boarded,etc. He gained the trust and respect of my very abused, anxious Pitbull, and my stubborn German Shepherd!

I have never had a pet sitter stay overnight for my dogs but met Darlene and she was so nice, professional and my dogs loved her. She has dog sit for me twice and am very pleased with Darlene. Would not let anyone else sit with them. Always keeps me updated on them and sends pics of them. Has definitely put my mind at ease!!!

We had a great overall experience with Glenn as he trained our dog and us. :) Glenn was patient, well-informed and friendly. He answered all of our follow-up questions throroughly and made sure we felt comfortable throughout the training process. The one caveat I would suggest is to establish a communication plan upfront with him. Once we addressed that email was his preferred channel, things went more smoothly. We would recommend Glenn and his family to anyone looking for an educated dog trainer!

Dog Envy changed our lives for the better!! Georgia, our boxer/bulldog mix was a very difficult, stubborn dog that we determined was "untrainable". Dog Envy changed that! We chose the Board & Train option with Samantha as our trainer. The difference in our dog is amazing! Samantha did a wonderful job not only training Georgia but educating our entire family on how to work with our new commands. I would recommend Dog Envy to anyone who needs training for their dog and especially for those with a difficult dog.

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.

Liz (and Meritt) did an awesome job of training Spartacus - our cockapoo - and us! What they do at CCT is everything a dog owner would want - they truly love what they do and it shows in how they help dogs be such great family members and how Spartacus loves going there for socializing and training with other dogs. I could not imagine having a dog without them.

I have actually never had a professional job sitting for pets. I live with my mom and we have like 10 dogs and six cats. So, I have plenty of experience with taking care of dogs and cats. I even have experience taking care of rabbits, goats and chickens. I have even helped a friend feed their pet snake while they were out of town. I am very reliable. I am a very good with animals. I love animals very much. You would never have to worry about your pets.
