Connie was very knowledgeable. She seemed relaxed and offered different approaches to obtain goal for walking my dog.
Christine Stratakos is a delight. She helped train my extremely stubborn mini dachshund puppy. Thanks to Christine my dog learned the basic of puppy training sit,come,etc. Not only that but when we expressed our concern that the puppy showed fear towards other dogs she accompanied us to the dog park to help in socializing the dog. Christine is a great trainer and all around good person
Christine came to my home i have 2 small dogs one was abused before i got him and was growling at her also he had never in his life been groomed with help from me to make sure he did not bite her or nip her we got some of his nails cut and he got his under coat taken out that was enough stress to him he did settle down after a while and is now her friend.....My other dog is a pug mix with shitzu and i had him cut like a pug my baby loved her he sat there soaking up all her undivided attention....Even after her clippers stopped working she rushed out and bought a new pair and finished my baby all the time saying how sorry she was.....Christine is a wonderful person very polite and very very good with dogs she knows what she is doing and if she did not she did not try to fake it she asked i will be using her again and again thank you Christine for making this a great thing
Kathy provided my with knowledge, understanding and techniques to help my dog transition into a new environment. There hasn't yet been a lot of progress but with time and hard work I'm hopeful.
This was my first time using Kelzey's Affordable Animal Care, and it will not be my last. Kelzey went above and beyond to ensure that my 3 dogs were safe, exercised and well-loved while I was away. She spent a great deal of time with them and kept in frequent contact with me, through text messages and pictures, while I was away. It was great to see, first hand, that my dogs were happy and comfortable. Kelsey took the time before my trip to meet with me and my dogs so we where both able to ask and answer each other's questions. She was very thorough and her love for animals was readily apparent. I felt comfortable with her very quickly, and my dogs did too! Upon arrival home, the dogs were relaxed and the house was in order. I had no messes or crazy stressed dogs to deal with. It was such a relief to come home like that! I would highly recommend Kelzey to anyone who loves their animals, hates to leave them and is in need of someone wonderful and highly skilled to love and care for your furry family member. - J.

Holly is a certified dog trainer. She has personally trained my chi-pom in basic commands of sit and stay as well as leash walking. She is very down to earth and personable. I would highly recommend her for these services.
Kaleigh pet sat my 2 small dogs for 2 weeks while I was away. She did an outstanding job! I don't usually like to leave the dogs for a long period of time but wasnt able to bring them. My dogs requiring quite a bit of care, so I was a little nervous but Kaleigh took such good care of them. They took to her so fast which isnt normal for them. I came home to 2 very happy pups! She is such an animal lover! I would recommend her to everyone!
Chris Velez is the most competent, knowledgeable, and reliable dog trainer there is! I have seen him work with a variety of breeds all of different personalities and behaviorial issues. He amazes me each time in his ability to quickly assess the dog's problem and correct it. He consistently gets a dog obeying him within minutes as he seems to have a magical connection with all canine. Not only that, but his demeanor and disposition with the human owners is equally excellent as he can easily teach them what needs to be done in order to maintain the correction. His attitude is outstanding...always with the motivation of helping others...not making money.
I am an animal behavior professional which probably makes me the most overqualified dog walker in the entire country. I am certified in small animal emergency medical care and I am an experienced force-free trainer. I truly love my business and my clients know they are getting the best of the best.

We have been breeding and showing Labrador Retrievers since 1988. We have AKC show champions and pups available, stud service, training, etc.
I loved dogs, so I do dog walker business.
I will take good, loving care of your dogs or other pets while you are away on vacation, business, or any occasion as needed, so they can stay in the comfort of their own loving home!
I do not have only one rate for animals. I believe that every animal should have the best care, so I set up a side fund for people who cannot afford my standard rate.
I love dogs and would love to meet yours! I have worked for the SPCA in Ithaca, walking, training, and socializing with dogs. It was a great experience and am looking forward to meeting and playing with new dog friends!
I go to all extents to please my customer's.
