We love working with Jay. We bought the 5 session package and have enjoyed every single minute of working with Jay. He is very passionate about what he does and really likes to get to know not only your animal but you as well. He really made the training of our dog Tommy a family affair and included our young children as well. He was never rushed for time, always showed up on time with a smile and lots of tips and information. We love his gentle way of training. Because of Jay we now have a very well behaved and trained dog we can enjoy for a long time to come. And we know we can always count on Jay in case anything comes up. We highly recommend him.

Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!

Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.

Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!

Anna is such a great trainer, mentor & friend. She is patient and always excited to share her endless knowledge in dog training. Not only did our husky, Kodiak, learn a great deal, but she focused a lot of her training on us. Though our training sessions are over, Anna is always so kind and available when we need to tweak some of Kodiak's mishaps. I would highly recommend BesoMomma anytime!!

I came to Sean, with my beautiful, sweet, goofy yet incredibly scary 5-year old pit mix that I had recently rescued. He had never been trained before or truly cared for and came to me with a rap sheet and the behavior to prove it. He is a big dog. He did not trust anyone or anything, was a nervous wreck and had human aggression that put me so on edge we couldn't really function as a unit, nor could I trust anyone else around him. He needed help or else he wouldn't last with me or with anyone else and I knew this was his last chance. I was overwhelmed with uncertainty and fear and exasperated by the trainers and advice that I was coming across. Needless to say, by the time we got to Sean, I didn't have much faith left at that point. I was so hesitant to send my dog to a board and train and I just did not know what to expect at all. And let's be honest - the price is scary for little people like me who really don't have that kind of money to throw around. I bought my English Bulldog from a breeder for that price and trained him at Petsmart, lol! It did not work but he's been mostly easy his whole life. I was so uneducated on proper dog training. I was scared, lost, we needed help and I was determined not to give up on this dog. I put everything I had into trusting Sean with him and I can absolutely say that it paid off for the both of us. He came back a different dog with confidence, attentiveness and a calmness that I never could have achieved on my own. He is a work in progress and always will be, but the foundation that Sean established for us is exactly what I was hoping for. It's only been a few days since he came home but I already feel such a difference in his behavior and our relationship. Sean was able to develop a trust that did not exist before. He trusts me now and respects me and has become so chill, it's just amazing. Sean is a very knowledgeable and realistic trainer that will instill the skills and confidence in you and your dog in a very straight forward and easygoing way. He's unlike any other trainer I've ever worked with before and is the only one whose methods and advice I know will stick with me forever. He teaches in a way that is easy to understand and what he practices just makes sense in the real world. He sends informative and useful reading material and posts videos online throughout the training to keep you engaged and educated. It is extremely helpful and good for visual learners like myself. I am so glad that I took the leap and if you're reading this and my story sounds familiar, then you should too. We couldn't thank you more Sean.

Donna and her team provided superlative care of my dog and fish (and house for that matter) while my family and I were traveling out of the country. I will recommend Prima Donna Pet Services to others and I will most certainly use them again.

We have not completed our puppy training yet but so far all is going well. Josh connected with my puppy right away as if she knew him already and responded to his reward-based training technique right away. He also gave us a lot of information on how to care for our puppy.

Truly fantastic and unique dog training experience. Chelsea had so much patience and genuine interest as I spoke with her (endlessly, on multiple occasions) about all of my concerns about my 11-year old adopted Shiba mix who grew up as a street dog in China. Gingko has not been an easy dog for me to deal with, but Chelsea has helped me not only manage but understand her barking and snapping behaviors. She's not just interested in obedience - she wants to help create a symbiotic relationship between you and your dog, so that each of you are happy and safe. I always imagined training to be just lots of clicker-treat-clicker-treat stuff (doesn't work with Gingko, who thinks treats are a trap). But Chelsea's full of clever, practical, and easy solutions that prevent unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. Can't recommend her highly enough.

We are so fortunate to have Ed come walk our puppy during the week. Ed is very reliable and easy to get in touch with. Sometimes I will text Ed during the day to see how my puppy is doing that day. Ed responds very quickly and makes me feel at ease knowing that my puppy is in great hands. I would definitely recommend Ed to anyone that is need of a dog walker.

I cannot recommend Adam from Casper Dog Training enough! He took his time to tailor his training to our needs with our dog, making sure we understood what he was doing the entire time. His patience, understanding, and professionalism made him amazing to work with without feeling overwhelmed or pressured. We will definitely continue dog training with Adam, he was a very calming presence and made sure to answer all of our questions and concerns before he finished. He was very thorough and left us with great tips to make sure we knew exactly how to continue to work with our dog.

Working with Faryn was great. Fenway loved her and listened! She did well at training not only the dog but my husband and me!!! She was clear on her instructions, consistent and helped Fenway understand the basic commands. Faryn is very professional and at the same time is warm and engaging. Her methods for training Fenway worked and her love of animals was very obvious. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Faryn!!!
