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!
Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.
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.
Meeting with Dr. J was the second best day we had with our puppy, outside of picking him up and bringing him home. He is FULL of amazing knowledge and has given us such a new outlook on raising our puppy. Most times when you hear that results will be quick and effective it sounds too good to be true, but it's not. Dr. J has dedicated his life to understanding the natural habits of dogs and has provided us with invaluable information to better not only our dogs life, but our home life with him as well. If you're even considering working with any other trainer - don't! This training is important for owners to understand the best ways to communicate with our animals and for the overall safety of our pets. And Dr. J's commitment doesn't end when he leaves. Like he says once you're a client, you're a client forever no matter what. I promise you need Dr. J in your life!!!
Jenn, the owner , I so impressive. I needed advice on care and training of my puppy. Her suggestions were practical, realistic and they are working. Jenn is professional, bright and fun to work with.
Kristen is amazing. We were looking for a trainer who could help us with both training and therapy with a 3 year old samoyed who had suffered a carpal (wrist) injury. Kristen's experience as a breeder and trainer of working dogs combined with her experience as a vet tech made her the perfect choice and we're lucky we found her. Kristen primarily works with Australian Shepherds, breeding training and showing, but she is great with all breeds. Do you know she has shown dogs at Westminster? Our Samoyed Lulu had an accident a year ago and her carpal joint had become inflamed. Lulu's stomach doesn't tolerate NSAIDS, and Lulu was in pain and picking up some bad habits. Kristen took over and got everything on the right track right away. First, Kristen helped us find a course of treatment that helped relieve Lulu's worst symptoms without harming her stomach, stabilizing her for the next step. Then Kristen designed a course of training to simultaneously strengthen Lulu's muscles and joints. (Not just her wrist) to better support her weight, while also training Lulu for obedience. Kristen even managed conversations with a local vet to get the right combination of meds for Lulu including gabapenton. Kristen went far beyond what we expected. I can't think of a better resource for training, working with physical challenges , coordinating treatment and doing it all seamlessly. For any job, from basic puppy training to working dog training to complex cases like ours, you won't find anyone even close to Kristen. Thanks Kristen!
The perfect help we needed to train frankie... put us on the right track...we couldn't be happier
Gus gave us excellent advice and educated us so that we better understand our dog's behavior. Our rotties responded very well to him and his training techniques and we are continuing to work on training them ourselves. I am more confident now, that we can do this! Thank you Gus!
Laura is a pro. She's knowledgeable, responsive, passionate and kind. I adopted a puppy recently and hired Laura for 3 training sessions. Even before Biggie arrived, Laura proved to be immensely valuable. She provided lists of all of the items I should have on-hand, including food and toy recommendations, and she even helped me find a vet and a dog walker. Once the sessions started, Laura arrived on time with a clear curriculum and format. She was organized and direct and taught Biggie (and me!) the essentials around crate training, focusing, sitting, meal time, walking on a leash and more. As a first time puppy owner, I was totally lost before I met Laura. She's incredible, and I highly recommend her. Laura is not only great at what she does, but it's clear she loves her job as well.
We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.
Pupwalk is an amazing service! Randy has trained my rescue dog, who has tons of energy and has anxiety issues, to calm down, chill, and overall he is a much happier dog. If you need training and or dog walking, or both, I would highly recommend him. He not only walks your dog, and trains him, but he will show you how to properly walk your dog and be involved in solo or family training so everyone can see how it works!
Having never used a pet sitting service before, I was very concerned about my cats being taken care of during my vacation. I posted my pet sitting job on Thumbtack and Kira of Animal Allies Pet Service was the first qualified person to respond. Kira provided references that I could contact for referrals. The references said nothing but great things about Kira. Kira patiently answered my many questions via email and we set up a time for a meet-n-greet with the cats at my apartment. She arrived on time. We talked for awhile and then went over their care routine. I gave Kira my house keys and I left the next morning knowing that I had a great person taking care of my cats. While I was away, Kira took care of my cats, watered my plants, got my mail and provided me with a daily update on my cats including pics via her client portal. I felt comfortable leaving my cats with her just knowing her extensive animal care background and training. I highly recommend considering Kira if you need a pet sitter. I will use Kira's pet sitting services again when I travel. Great experience. Thank you for everything Kira.
I met Charli when I was training my pug, Rosie, to become a therapy dog. Rosie is a bit older so I was unsure if this would be possible. Charli is patient and kind with all of the dog owners and just as patient and kind with the dogs with a wonderful confidence that she uses in her training techniques. If you use Charli for dog training you can be sure you are in good hands. She doesn't stop until both dog and owner are completely trained. Her knowledge and experience can't be matched. I definitely recommend The Dog Chick!!!
Regina is an amazing dog trainer. In just one visit I have had major improvements with my two year old dog. She a very calm and patient trainer. I would strongly recommend her. I plan on continuing with her.
I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!
Shadella is the best she’s consistent and very animal friendly she trained my dog papi how to use the bathroom outside I was having so much problems with him using the bathroom in the house she kept me updated with videos and pictures threw out his stay I would book her again I was very pleased
David is one of the best I've seen in 40 years of dog training! He has a way about him that not only makes our dogs feel like he is their friend, but he disarms the most stressed of owners! David has taught us ways of handling our babies that no other has, and these guidelines we use everyday now. It's such a pleasure working with someone who takes such a personal interest in our entire family! Don't go anywhere else until you have spoken to this fine young man and your dogs best friend.
Teo is a very reliable, responsible and easy-going person to deal with. On days that I can not walk my dog I rely on Teo for dog walking service. It's a big plus that my dog really enjoys Teo's company. Highly recommend to those who are too busy with their daily lives.
I am a certified trainer and AKC CGC evaluator with nine years of experience with training pets using positive reinforcement. Dogs warm up to me very quickly, and this makes for a very pleasant training experience for the handler, the dog and me!
I am here to provide experience training for dog owners, covering most issues the dog may have. What makes me so effective is my years of training experience.
