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¦?
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!
Nicole is professional, helpful, kind, and clearly has a strong working knowledge of dog training.
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.
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
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!
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!
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 🐾 👍👏 😎
I've never had a better cleaning experience than I have had with these two. They are very trustworthy and work very well together. Max and Haley also watched my two dogs and cat while my husband and I were away on vacation. We came home to a clean house and very happy pets. I would highly recommend their 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.
Very professional and willing to help with anything that is needed. Would totally recommend Kimiya Services!
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.
