My German Shepherd was 7 months old when I found Vigilant K9. She was aggressive, and very reactive both towards humans and other dogs. I found Vigilant K9 and sent my request to them with some information about my dog. Deb reached out immediately and was very quick to respond. She talked to me about the services she offers, she asked more in depth questions about the dog, and she provided the certifications she yields as well as the amount of years she has been training dogs. Shortly after the initial contact, we scheduled a time and day to assess my dog. Deb and Raymond came out to my residence and instantly knew how to react with my dog, they knew what needed to be done, where we needed to start, and already started forming a game plan to work towards. My dog is now 10 months old, and since that day, it is as if I have a completely different dog. Each week Deb and Raymond came over, there was improvements every single time. They showed my family and I how to correct the human error side of pet training, as well as how to interact and handle the dog. They showed us proper technique, as well as key indicators, and how to read the dogs body language. They really know there stuff, and the experience they claim to have definitely shows. We have had around 8-10 training sessions, and I can now take my people/dog reactive puppy to Lowes and to parks with other dogs. My puppy can do basic obedience commands which consists of sit, down, stay, leave it, etc. My dog also used to be a puller on the leash, however after working with Deb and Raymond, we can now heel and loose leash walk through stores and parks with ease. We have also worked on long line sit/stays and down/stays - before Deb and Raymond I could barely be 2ft away from my pup, now I can put her in a stay and walk out 30ft or more, without her moving until I recall her. Deb is also very flexible with hectic schedules and will always suggest alternate training times when something comes up. I am a full time student and work full time, and Deb and worked with my schedule very graciously. As with any pet training, there it is a lot of hard work and dedication that goes into it. You get what you put into it. Deb and Raymond will show you and provide you with the tools needed for training, but you have to do the homework and maintain the same 100% commitment they are putting forth otherwise you are not benefiting your dog. Everyone can have their own opinion, but some of the negative reviews that are listed, I feel are a bad misrepresentation of Vigilant K9 as a company. I have seen the changes within my own dog, and I have seen the changes within some of the other clients dogs Vigilant K9 has done, and it is honestly amazing. I have never met someone who is more enthusiastic, more attentive, goal-orientated, and truly caring about dogs than Deb and Raymond - not to mention more knowledgeable on the subject matter as well. They truly want the best for yourself, your family, and your dog and will do anything in their power to make sure that you have a strong foundation and relationship with your pet.

Deb and Raymond have been absolutely amazing. I have a fear reactive dachshund. I found Vigilant K9 on thumbtack and reached out for more information. Deb contacted me immediately. The communication, support, education, and training is absolutely amazing. My dachshund is a different dog and I am way more confident as is he! I recommend Deb and Raymond to anyone who needs professional dog training!

Deb has went above and beyound in order to help our dog and his aggresion issues! You can see how much she enjoys her job and it reflects in her work. My dog is absolutely in love with Deb! We communicate on a regular basis and I enjoy that, because I feel comfortable being able to call her if I come up with any questions regarding my dog and his training!

Roseann came over the same day I contacted her! She helped me with the 2 pups for a walk. When we got home we worked out a schedule that accommodates both of us. Very pleasant experience and I'm looking forward to our next walk:)

I met RoseAnn just today, and found her to be honest in her manner, affectionate with Aggie, my small terrier. Aggie liked RoseAnn immediately. RiseAnn and I will be working together for as long as I need her services.

Marilyn has been caring for my Doberman for nearly 2 years on a weekly basis and I couldn't be happier with her. She is flexible, reliable and very trustworthy. She can handle large high energy dogs and has become a true companion to all our animals when we are out of town or just need an extra hand with them. She's the first person I call when I have to be away from them. Highly recommended.

When I hired Lisa, I was having lots of behavior issues with my two dogs. After Lisa came to the house for a few sessions I felt confident in what to do and my dogs were responding well to their new behavior expectations. I have also used Custom K9 Performance to board my dogs, which can be anxiety stricken. I was so pleased with the facility and traveled easy knowing my dogs were getting great care.

We took 2 of our dogs through training here and they are awesome!! Lisa was very patient with everyone and I feel we learned a lot during the classes. Just a really great experience and her dogs are all amazingly trained. I have never seen such well behaved dogs. I have been through other classes and the dogs must be on leash even with the trainer. Her dogs all are perfect during class!!!

Michele has been walking my dog for about 3 months now. He's a rescue and has been with me for almost a year, so he is still adapting to his new home. His nature is to be sweet and loving, but he also has some history and fears. Michele is a true dog-person and brings out the best in him—his true, joyful self. When we run into her around the neighborhood, he knows her instantly and perks right up! For the first 9 months with me, he would become very anxious every time I left the house. I was late to work by a few minutes each morning because it broke my heart to leave him. He would jump on me, run out the door, etc. Within the first week of Michele, he calmed and when I left for work, he didn't even get up! His anxiety is still there at other times, so it's very clear that his morning calm is about knowing that she'll be by to walk him. I would also add that on rare occasions I have had an emergency and, schedule allowing, she has been willing to help me out. I realize this may not always be the case, but I definitely feel comfortable checking with her to see if she is available.

Michele has been a reliable dog walker/sitter for my dog Eli now for over a year. She kept him for me when I took a two week vacation to Maine and I felt completely at ease knowing he was with Michele and I didn't need to worry about my dog. Michele also takes my dog to the dog park several days a week while I am working and brings him to the local dog park for an hour. I feel good knowing he is having time in his day to be social with other dogs and get some play and exercise into his day. Best of all, my dog adores Michele. He runs to her and gives kisses every time he sees her which is what matters most! I would highly recommend Michele as a dog walker/sitter.

Michele is a dependable and flexible dog walker and my dog really likes her. She is super responsive and is understanding of last minute changes/late bookings. When she was out of town for a few weeks, she made it easy by having a sub fill in for her so that none of her clients were affected. I highly recommend her for dog sitting/walking gigs :)

We were delighted with the way Meka looked after our dog, Mindy, for one day (11/5/14). Meka is excellent with animals and went out of her way to arrive at our house in good time and to give Mindy a very varied and happy day - better than we would have done ourselves - they went for a nice hike in the ABQ Open Space as part of their afternoon walk. We were very happy to meet Meka and with the way she looked after our house and dog. Bob and Marylyn Burridge.

She took great care of my cat. Immediately upon meeting Meka, my cat warmed up to her immediately. She played and cuddled with him, and even got him to sit for a treat! Her love for cats is obvious, and I would definitely trust my cat with Meka in the future.

About

I am a current graduate student at the University of New Mexico, studying geography and environmental studies. I am open to any job opportunities related to my student activities, but I am also looking for positions in dog walking or pet sitting. I've watched dogs, from small terriers to large labs and volunteered as a dog walker for both the City of Albuquerque and the Animal Humane Society in Albuquerque for about two years. I have always owned an animal. I've had labs and different mixes before (all from the pound), and I currently own a very large cat named Crosby and three hermit crabs.

I sit and walk dogs to earn money, so I can help my father out with rent, and hopefully, maybe buy a car to get to school.
