Jay was able to explain our dogs behavior to us. What we thought was aggression was play. Once we understood that life with Catherine went so much better. Jay showed us how to train Catherine so that she has become better behaved and obedient. He really knows his "stuff".

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.

We are first time puppy parents and our fur baby is a handful to say the least. When searching for a trainer, Deb immediate won we over by asking to talk via the phone. She breaks it down so we can understand his behavior from a dog's mindset. She is very invested in our mental health and our puppy's overall well being. Highly recommend!

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!

Suki is great! She is very flexible and absolutely loved animals! She is gentle and watchful. She walked the dogs in the park and several times during the day, fed them and spent good quality time with them. They clearly loved her too.

So glad we hired Anna. She helped us to understand that our dog was anxious, and not aggressive, and gave us invaluable advice on how to work with him and work to break unwanted behaviors. The time she spent with us was informative and enlightening. While we have always tried to be responsible and attentive pet parents, Anna helped us identify areas where we were subconsciously giving our dog the wrong cues, as well as being inconsistent in our day to day expectations of him. Her follow up after the appointment has been thorough and much appreciated. She emailed us the same evening with a run down of all the points we discussed, followed up multiple times in the days following to see how things were going, and offered encouragement and advice. All around a wonderful experience and though it is still early after our appointment, we can already see improvements in our dog's behavior. I look forward to watching not only our pup, but us as parents, grow and learn.

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!

I put out a call and Interdyne answered. Gave a lot of free advice with a caring, warm and compassionate attitude. I had an intractable and difficult health problem for a born-feral irascible cat, who despite her behavior I love

Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.

I could not have asked for better cat sitters! They are professional, kind and are very obviously real animal lovers. Because Jorge is a vet tech I felt comfortable leaving my sick cat with him for a few days and having him administer fluids and medicines. They have reasonable prices and I totally trusted them in my home. Both jorge and another employee even took it upon themselves to FaceTime me so I could say hi to my babies.

My dog training session with Faryn was impressive and her professional way of teaching is definitely 100% outstanding. Faryn provided helpful tips to improve my dog’s response when giving certain commands. When I first adopted my dog, one of the many challenging obstacles I came across was the constant pulling on the leash my dog will do. Before meeting with Faryn I was contemplating on how to improve my walks with my dog, WOW was that difficult and annoying. However, after the first training session with Faryn, my dog no longer pulls on the leash as much as before. In fact, these last couple of days I enjoy my long walks at the park with my dog. Thank You Faryn,

Love love love Athena Jones! She worked with our 9 yr old lab mix Onyx on following directions, especially where the cat is concerned. We couldn’t be happier with the results! She’s so knowledgeable about dog behavior and helped us understand what to expect. She’s patient and explains everything she does to us pet parents. Onyx gets so excited whenever she see’s Athena. You can just tell she’s an animal lover with a firm, yet gentle approach to training.
