I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin, one of the trainers at The Canine Cure. We ended up board and training one of our dogs and boarding the other one as well. Caitlin took into consideration all of our concerns and did a great job building the foundation for our pups training. She was also very good about keeping us updated about both of our dogs while we were away on vacation and both of our dogs seemed like they were well taken care of during their stay. I will continue to use her services in the future and definitely would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog trainer.

We are the best dog walkers and pet sitters in Northern NJ. We know that there are many dog walking and pet sitting companies in the northern NJ, but what sets us apart from the rest is the personalized service we provide. When your pet is in our care, it's a complete experience, your pet and our dog walker, that's it. Other companies charge extra for a private walk, here at Paw Pals, we offer only this dog walking service for the same affordable price! We just don't take your dog for a walk, and get them home asap; It's an adventure. We allow them to actually enjoy the air, sniff and interact with their peers, that's why we reserve 2 hour time intervals in between, to allow extra time per pet if needed. The same one-on-one service applies to our pet sitting, your furry family member will have our absolute attention. It's important to us to give your pet that undivided attention, isn't that the way it would be if your pet was at home with you? Why would we want to take them out of their ordinary routine? We don't! We listen to your instructions and implement them to ensure your pet comes back the way they left. Let us show you the difference!

I had worked with several Dog Trainers in NYC before I met Pete, and after working with him I will never use another. I had a bottle fed Pitbull, who had severe aggression issues, and it was coming to a point where I was becoming hopeless. That was until I met Peter Caine. Through his strict obedience training, repetition, and constant vigilance Harley became a different dog. I only recommend Peter Caine to anyone that has a dog in the NYC area. His Board & Train will work wonders. Pete makes training fun, and keeps it simple. He genuinely cares about his clients, and will always make you laugh. For anyone that has a dog, whether it is a puppy, or an older dog with issues Peter Caine is the man for the job. Thanks for everything Pete!

We recommend Tom to anyone who is looking for a great dog trainer. He clearly loves dogs dearly, and will treat both you and your dog with respect. Moreover, as in the case with our Goldendoodle puppy, he will coach you and teach you how to become the leader your dog needs, so that your dog will be a happy and well-behaved member of your household. If one solution does not work, Tom will find another, until the behavior problem is solved. Tom has also provided invaluable insight into the way dogs think and what motivates them to do the things they do. He is also a great source of information on how to keep our dogs healthy and happy, and we know we can trust his advice. And, Tom is always just a phone call or email away to help with between-visit problems, or to check on progress. Tom is a very pleasant, dependable and knowledgeable trainer, who truly cares about his clients. He is both a dog and dog owner's best friend! We know our dog Bryn is very glad we found Tom, and so are we!

Andrea and her husband John go above and beyond to take care of our dog, a shy rescue who needed help to open up. Great value for our money. Our pup is tired out from having so much fun with her doggy friends during her walks and greets us calmly when we get home. She's also now better about welcoming strangers to pet her. Highly recommend!

Jessica was very attentive to my cat and took great care of her while I was away. My cat is shy when meeting new people and Jessica made her feel comfortable.

I am unemployed. I was a medical tech. I also worked in the animal hospital. I used to breed Rottweilers, but I'm older now. From where I live, they do not allow pets, and that is a sad thing.
