We are thrilled with the quality and care of Robert Webb at Who's Walking Who. We rescued a nine month old pit bull mix who was sweet but totally untrained. We knew we needed a trainer as much (or more) for ourselves as for our new pup. In a few days, Bob had all the basics down and our dog was able to walk confidently and calmly on the leash. He even fetched! Bob takes his time to explain the process and is available for questions any time. He also sent us videos and texts to update us on our dog's progress. Our dog loves Bob! He's always all tails wagging when we meet for our lessons. Bob is super helpful in diagnosing things we are doing incorrectly that confuse the dog, which is necessary as we are new to all this. If you are not willing to change your behavior as a human, I imagine the results will not be as good. I have to admit we were nervous of the intensive training at first, but are so glad we trusted Bob. He's a dog whisperer!

January 16, 2016 I am very pleased to provide a testimonial for Kerri Lamorey of K9WAGIN Dog Training. I used to think that I was a pretty good dog guy but my meager skill pales in comparison to the encyclopedic knowledge and solid experience that Kerri Lamorey has with dogs. To say that she has mastered dog-think and behaviors would be an understatement. She is especially adept with herding dogs. I learned of Kerri when I watched her give a herding-dog demonstration at the Reno Celtic Festival. I thought of her a few months later after I rescued a twelve-month-old Border-Collie-Kelpie mix from a shelter in Salinas California. This high-power dog had been feral for most of its life and it was a calamity waiting to happen. I realized that I would need Kerri if this rescue dog and I were to have any hope of a future together. Twelve months later “HappyJack” is still a handful but that’s to be expected from a dog with the combined energy of an entire ranger platoon. Thanks to Kerri, Jack and I have learned to channel his enormous drive in productive ways. Kerri skillfully employs rational, compassionate, behavior modification to dog and human simultaneously. She is not afraid to voice her opinions honestly and with passion regarding all things dog. You have only to listen to her and incorporate her recommendations which she communicates tactfully, clearly, and respectfully to gain the dog you want to have. If having a balanced, secure, polite, obedient, well-behaved, eager-to-learn, dog is important to you, Kerri is the trainer for you. If having confidence that your dog’s behavior will be appropriate when introduced to anyone or to any situation is important to you, Kerri is your trainer. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

I cannot say enough enough about Off Leash K9. My dog was out of control (pulling me down the street on a leash, jumping all over people, chasing our cats all over our house. We enrolled Jack our Viszla in the 2 week board and train and now we don't even need to put him on a leash anymore. It's so great to be able to walk to the park and know we can trust him to be well mannered and our cats have their house back. Well worth the money!

Brittany is the best pet sitter I've used. She has so much knowledge about dogs and she's a great contact when I have a question about training, diet, or behavior. I will continue to recommend her to friends.

This is the second time Denise has taken care of my parrot Turk. It was a blessing to find someone with the level of animal knowledge Denise has. She is accessible, close to my home and her rates can't be beat. My Turk and I have found a friend for life .

My German Shepherd is difficult to handle. Joule has many years of training and had no problems with my dog. I am so happy I finally found someone to watch him. Joule took great care of him and I thank her very much.

About

I went to ABC college and graduated. I'm a certified dog trainer. I've been training dogs for over 5 years now. I do basic obedience. It's a 6-week course, 1 hour a week, and I charge $200. It's a onetime charge and for the lifetime of your family member. So in the future that your family member is pulling on the leash, you call me. I come back to you, see what's going on work with you on it and won't charge you. I'm also licensed and insured.
