Danielle was very knowledgeable about dogs and training. She had a good understanding of why our dog was acting the way he was. Definitely recommend!
Kara has been grooming our two miniature schnauzers for several years. She does an exceptional groom for each of them, enhancing their best features (one if female and one is male). Kara keeps notes on any seasonal modifications we do (shorter in Summer, longer in Winter) so that they still look their best and be comfortable. Our dogs love to "go for a haircut!" and jump right into the car. The business hours and flexibility of Pawsitively Pampered Pooch makes it convenient for us to drop them on our way to work. We receive a text that they're ready, which I appreciate. I also really like their scheduling and appointment reminder emails. If I forget to put it in my calendar right away, I'll have an email to reminder me to do it. I most highly recommend Kara and Pawsitively Pampered Pooch. We've been clients for over 7 years and have been very, very happy.
We had our rescued Yorkie mix for 6 months before finally calling Nate. Baxter is good at home, but we avoided other dogs when outside of the house and a few uncomfortable (but not violent) incidents with neighboring dogs made us nervous about continuing with what was admittedly a precarious canine social status quo. Our group sessions and (1) private session with Nate helped us realize that our dog wasn't aggressive, but fearful and anxious, and that if we committed to socializing him while also adapting behaviors that made him feel at ease when on walks and in the park, he'd relax enough to have pleasant meets with other pups. Nate came to our house, talked us through some of our habits, and helped give us tools to socialize Baxter. Since then, our guy has been a totally different dog. He is very smart. We know that putting the work in has already yielded wonderful results. Two months ago, if you'd told me that we'd be able to take our dog to a classroom with a bunch of other dogs, I would have laughed in your face. Baxter is doing much better with all his skills thanks to Nate. Is our dog perfect? No! He's a dog! Sometimes he still acts like a dog. Sometimes the dog park just isn't going to happen. Sometimes he barks when he shouldn't. But I know Nate can't work a miracle, especially with just one session. Baxter is a rescue and a work in progress. For now, we're totally happy with the training we've been doing and the huge improvement we've seen in such a short amount of time. When people now compliment us on our "good dog," we always tell them that it was Nate who helped us out. Thanks Nate! Was this review â¦?
Mark has helped us with our new puppy and visits her during the day while we work. He is very professional and organized. We like that he is knowledgeable about dogs and also wanted to work with us as we trained her. I feel very comfortable with him coming to our house on his own during the day. Our dog is very happy when he comes and gets great attention. Mark goes above and beyond. He provided great references when we chose him which helped us make our decision.
I met Deb today on an interview session and I think I hit the Jack pot! She is very kind and knowledgeable and my dog took to her right away! I think this will be the beginning of a great relationship!
I cannot say enough great things about Paw Professionals! Zach has exceeded my every expectation- he's organized, he's tidy when he's in my home, and most importantly he truly cares for my pup in the same way I do. Each time he walks her I get a photo of her enjoying their time together and it makes my day! I would highly recommend his services to any dog owner.
Maile is fabulous! I have finally found a dog walker who will take my very active Labradoodle hiking in the woods. To top it off, Maile is totally reliable, communicative, ethical and my dog absolutely adores her. What more do you want? I feel extra secure knowing that she works in veterinary clinic-- she is one of the few "dog" people I have met who is interpersonally skillful as well. What a lucky find for Toby as well as for me!
Nina did a phenomenal job with a very difficult home full of pets. I'm so grateful for her services and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a thorough clean!
Chalisse is so awesome with our dog, Layla, that I honestly think she is disappointed to see us return home. It is so nice to know that she is well taken care of in the surroundings she is familiar with. With the amount of attention she receives while we are away, it is like a vacation for Layla too.
Jill cares for our cats while we are away. She is thorough and dependable, and our cats love her! She has learned their individual personalities and quirks, and tailors her care accordingly. She administers medication to 2 of our cats, and provides complete information and feedback for us on how things went. We rely on her for peace of mind while we are away, and we feel very lucky to have her caring for our cats.
Not often will you find anyone who is a professional animal trainer willing to sit on your floor and engage with both the owners and the dog! Ingrid did just that, and now I think that Max would gladly live with her! :) She is kind and gentle and responsive and oh so encouraging We recommend Ingrid without reservation! John & Judy Shipherd
Our pets love Lisa! She has taken care of our dogs and ferrets for a couple of years now and we love knowing our pets are well cared for when we need to leave town. Lisa really loves all the pets she takes care of. She has taken care of our elderly ferrets when they were sick and did great with them. We definitely recommend Lisa!
Jennifer did an excellent job with our dog. She was very friendly and personable to work with and you can tell that she is an animal lover and really enjoys what she does. She also takes great action shots of the dog walks :) Thanks Jennifer!
I found Nicole very professional. We had a meet and greet at no cost and my dog warmed up to Nicole and Emily with no problems. I know I will enjoy them along with my dog. I have already recommended Bella's to a friend.
Loved loved loved Tonia Maier & her private dog training lessons. She is a very caring, dedicated & professional dog trainer & lover of all animals. Her understanding of dogs & her training techniques are superb. She gives you all the necessary training tools and skills needed for success, in being able to work with your dog on a daily bases, in redirecting any bad behaviors and learning new lifetime skills needed for your dog/s to come, stay, sit & leave it. She also teaches you important socialization tools needed in training your dog. She gives you a copy of written weekly follow-up training materials to keep on hand for continued training that has to be done by the dog owner on a consistent day to day bases for complete success. She has taught me that good dog behaviors are the sole responsibility of the owner. A dog is only as good as the owner trains it & allows it to be. Dogs are, and always will be our very best friends! I love them all. Thank you Tonia for your help, skills and patience. You are very talented, loving, kind and simply the BEST dog training professional I have met. KUDOS Tania - me and Milo are pawsatively very thankful and happy with our continued & dedicated daily training techniques you have taught us. Ciao 🐾 👍👏 😎
Sarah is a compassionate dog owner, and has a genuine interest in seeing healthy dogs enjoy life.
Very professional and willing to help with anything that is needed. Would totally recommend Kimiya Services!
I cannot say enough positive things about Pat. I highly recommend him and his program(s). My dog Judge (a former shelter dog) came home from three days at Regional K-9 with Pat a changed dog! He not only learned great leash techniques but basic obedience and communication as well. The best part, however, is that Pat treated him like his own dog. He has also maintained constant contact since we left and has continued to give us tips and pointers. Pat and Regional K-9 are totally worth the expense; having a well-trained dog is priceless.
