Sal was very personable and friendly! He was so loving to our two dogs. He helped by working with us to help our dog with fear issues after being attacked by another dog.

Our trainer , Caitlin was so impressive with her knowledge on dog psychology, she made us feel so comfortable, always being encouraging , positive and patient. We never felt judged in the least , she was so cool and down to earth, exactly what we needed , I would highly recommend them to anyone hesitating getting a trainer for fear of feeling judged, I'm so happy we made the commitment, it made a world of difference with basic obedience in our puppy and 6 yr old beagle loved it as well!

We have had two training sessions with Ariana and our two four-month old Chow-Shepherd mixes, and we couldn't be happier with what she has taught the pups and us so far. The dogs adore her and respond well to her training techniques, and she clearly has a lot of in-depth knowledge and experience working with dogs and animals in general. I appreciate that she has a background in animal behavior, so she understands why they act the way they do and uses that to redirect their behavior. We look forward to many more sessions with her!

Being a first time puppy owner Suzanne taught me many great techniques while working with our puppy. She also gave me great feedback and advice on training our puppy. She showed me that with patience and constant practice our puppy's behavior will get better. Thank you for your knowledge.

Dr. Jay was amazing! I've reluctantly tolerated my dog's behavior for years because I love him and didn't know what to do. Dr. Jay swept in and saved the day, and in just one visit to my home. I thought my dog and I were as best as best friends can be, but we are now closer than ever. Thank you so much!

we recently got a new 3.5 month old frenchie who is just so adorable but had some habits set in, from her litter buddies. we contacted karin for help on where to begin and how to train our frenchie into the city lifestyle. our first meeting with karin, opened up our eyes on some bad habits that we didn’t know we were promoting with our puppy. karin was thorough in explaining puppy behavior and how our frenchie understands our body language. yesterday was our third meeting with karin and beau (our frenchie) is very much familiar with the emergency recall, sit, sit with stay, come, down, crate, walking on a loose leash, behaving appropriately with other dogs (our older frenchie) and potty training. also, karin has been available through text at all times during the day and night. she likes to know when beau has done something good or bad at the time it happens, so that any bad learning can be addressed immediately. we are so thankful for meeting karin and can’t wait for our next sessions.

Jenn was wonderful! She's extremely knowledgeable in animal behavior & provides much love & care for your pets. Our dog & 2 cats were calm & relaxed when we got back from our 3 days away. You can tell they really enjoyed themselves & were not stressed, thanks to Jenn. We got pictures & updates daily of the gang, which we really appreciated. Plus, our place looked just the way we left it when we got back! We would love to use Jenn's professional services in the future. We were extremely happy with Jenn's care! Thank you, Jenn!

Rick and his team were great. They took our 10 year old dog with some aggressive and defiant behavior for a week and worked with him. We then had Rixk come and train us so that we could help modify his behavior. It is a difficult process but Rick used clear and easy commands to help us learn. Rick was also willing to answer questions in between sesssions and always got back to us quickly.

We have used Margaret to help acclimate our new rescue pup into our home with our six year old Shih Tzu who is the Queen. From the first visit she offered practical tips on managing the pups behavior. There are four adults living in our house and she was keenly aware of how that might impact the consistency of what we did with our new puppy. Each week she would visit with all four of us and made us feel more comfortable with what we were doing and we could see the progress. It was more like Margaret was at the house visiting and in more of a conversation provided us excellent guidance and feedback and answered all our questions. It never felt that we were at a lesson. She has regular as well as four-legged people skills. We would enthusiastically recommend her!

Kristin is a dedicated professional. She spent over two hours with us in our home on our first visit with her. She spent time videotaping our dog's behavior and demonstrated several behavior modification techniques for us to practice until our next session. She has kept in constant contact with us post-visit and has been there to answer questions and provide feedback. Our dog has separation anxiety which is going to require a long term plan and I believe that Kristin is definitely going to be a part of the team along with our behavior veterinarian. I would recommend Kristin.

We are so happy to have met Debbie! She is an absolute pleasure. She helped me and my fiancee learn how to be the best owners to our new puppy Bodie. She truly cares for each animal she works with and wants the best for both owner and dog. Being a pretty anxious person, Debbie was so patient and helpful. She never left without us fully understanding what is expected and always made sure we could do it on our own. She is a fabulous trainer and person. She even gave us great tips for healthy homemade treats for our dog. I would recommend her 1000 times over to anyone who is looking for help with their dog, new or old.

Mac is a true animal whisperer. I have a geriatric cat, and he cared for her as if she was his pet. I felt comfortable and confident leaving my cat in his care.
