Great guy! Helped me install an AC unit. Very professional and did a great job. Will definitely use him again for jobs in the future. Highly recommend!
We have a 1 year old Pit Bull that needed to work on some typical puppy behaviors, especially jumping. We found Jay on thumbtack. He immediately responded to our request. I loved that he responded with some information about Stella’s behavior as well as some tips before even setting up a training schedule. After talking over the phone some, and learning more about what Jay does, my husband and i decided to have our first meeting. I felt like he truly understood our concerns. WHAT A DIFFERENCE in Stella’s behavior after only one 2 hour session! I loved that Jay came to us, it helped for him to observe Stella’s behaviors in her usual environment. We learned a lot about canine behavior, why Stella was doing the things she was, and how to get her to do more of the behaviors we expect and WANT to see her doing. We moved forward with a few more sessions, and we have been incredibly successful! We have done a few sessions including some of our other family members, as well as moved to some other locations we bring Stella often. Jay has made such a difference for us! Some of our less dog experienced family members feel more comfortable around our dog now and that was the ultimate goal. Overall, Jay was on time and prepared for every session, explained everything really well, answered all of our questions and we had a good time along the way! I joke and say jay trained us, not the dog, lol but joking aside i would recommend his service to anyone! I may even call him again in the future as needed!
Sal is a warm hearted, gentle soul with a soothing voice & calming demeanor. He has a high level of expertise in training dogs. My wife & I are incredibly happy with his handling & training of our miniature poodle "Lucky". Sal was able to control our very rambunctious dog & calmed him very easily. Sal has a very natural ability to handle dogs. We are more than pleased with both him & his ability to train "Lucky". We highly recommend Sal & can truly say that you get way more than your money's worth with hiring him. He is a true professional & it's quite obvious that he enjoys his craft. You will be very happy with his level of expertise, training methods & overall effectiveness. Thank you Sal for being our "dog whisperer".
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.
At the last minute I realized I didn't want Henry (my 4 year old cat) to be in a cage at a vet while I was away on a weekend). I reached out through Thumbtack, and chose Trustworthy Petter Sitterl to pet sit. Michael came over for a meet and greet and he's such a lovely person that immediately I knew Henry would be in good hands. Michael sent me texts and pictures and left a wonderful note and a bag of presents for Henry. I will absolutely call Trustworthy Pet Sitter again!
Ariana was great! She was very professional, and our dog responded well to her training. We learned a lot more than we expected in our first training, and received a ton of value from the session.
Great company, great people and my dog is very happy🐆
Suzanne has been great with our dog, who sometimes isn't as well-behaved as we'd like. She is communicative and professional and our dog is always happy to see her!
(+) Suki fulfilled the expected tasks of a cat sitter -- providing food, filling the water bowl, and scooping the litter box. She sent daily photos. She was pretty quick to responding to my texts. Suki's rate/cost is affordable compared to other cat sitters, especially professionals (-) Although she sent daily photos, they were sometimes just blurry snaps of my cat's back. From the photos alone, it did not seem that Suki spent much time with him. Rather felt like she was merely showing me that she "checked in" to see my cat. I was disappointed to return home and see that the curtains were down when she said that she will make sure they are up.
Sing did an amazing job grooming my dog. She is very experienced and very professional. She created very trusting rapport with my dog. My dog not only looks great, but enjoyed the experience as well. I highly recommend Sing.
Joan was good, she came to our home during a snow storm and arrived extra early to training our 3 month old Shih Tzu. Joan is friendly, very knowledgeable about nutrition and training for dogs. She brought lots of treats and toys for our puppy to play with and she spent time getting to know him. By the end of session puppy was sitting on command.
Anna was professional, understanding, and genuinely concerned with helping my dog. She contacted me immediately to begin working on a personalized plan. She is definitely a great choice for private dog training!
Jenn is incredible. She is very dependable and has a wonderful rapport with our two kitties (and us). Whenever we go out of town we know our little ones are in safe and competent hands. Jenn goes out of her way to send updates with photos each day. She is always prompt in responding and professional. Our kitties are normally very shy, but they both took to Jen immediately. She truly is a cat whisperer. We also sincerely appreciate her advice - ranging from kitty allergies to appropriate nutrition. Jenn is a wealth of knowledge. You would be lucky to have her. We cannot say enough glowing things about her. We give her 6 out of 5 stars!!
Jessica has been instrumental in helping us transition to our new life as dog owners! She is super competent/ experienced with dogs, training and dog behavior/ psychology. She is also super reliable, trustworthy and kind. I couldn’t recommend her more.
Alcie Marino is a true professional when it comes to understanding the canine world. Her techniques and strategies for training your pooch are terrific. I have two large dogs who were trained by Alice. They were extremely destructive and did not understand who was the boss. Through my training sessions with Alice, they are two of the most wonderful, well-behaved dogs. They are easy to walk and do not destroy anything in our home. In addition, Alice works with your entire family to ensure that your all in the household are aware of the expected behavior of your dog. She truly is amazing and I would highly recommend her services!
Kyle and Alanna were awesome with our dog! We were gone for the weekend and we have never left our dog for that long before. I was honestly a nervous wreck the first day, but after getting great reports and photos back from them after each visit, my worrying stopped. Darla, our dog, also seemed very happy with the experience! We will be using them again! (Just asked them to come by another day this week!)
I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!
The perfect help we needed to train frankie... put us on the right track...we couldn't be happier
Chelsea is a great trainer! She is highly knowledgeable about canine behavior and is articulate and clear when describing what’s going on with my dog. Since she started working with him (and instructing me on how to read and respond to him appropriately) he’s transformed into a well-behaved, obedient little companion. In addition, my dog has also learned a million new party tricks - which is always fun - and I’ve learned a bunch of strategies to keep him entertained and happy, even within the confines of city life, where I can’t just “let him out back” for excersise. Chelsea has also stayed at my apartment to dog-sit while I’ve been away. This is something that I’ve been nervous to do in the past, but I felt 100% comfortable having her in my home while out of town. She is trustworthy and consistent through and through. Most importantly, my dog loves her so much that I get a little jealous sometimes!!! He’s always excited to see me, but he loooooves her. I wholeheartedly recommend using Sundog Pet Care for all of your pet-related needs; I’ll never hire anyone else ever again. You won’t either.
Adam is a really nice guy who clearly loves dogs and enjoys working with them. He's a down to earth guy. The man knows what hes doing, he mde a friend in our German Pinscher "Noble" in short order. Addm is extremely knowledgeable and patient in his the training field. Looking forward to continue working / training Nible with him. I would very highly recommend him nd his services for any dog training needs.
I love how Linda is very flexible with her schedule and to last minute changes. Additionally, I adore the updates and photos she sends me when she walks our dog. She is a wonderful dog walker, I would definitely recommend her!
