Kevin and his son, Kyle both cared for my 10 month old puppy and were great with him. They were in contact with me while I was away to give me updates, and my neighbor contacted me to tell me how impressed she was by the amount of time they spent playing in the yard with my puppy. Kevin and Kyle are dog lovers, and it felt great to know that our puppy was in their care in my absence. Excellent experience.
They are wonderful, and my dog is learning so much.
Carol is such a great dog trainer! She was wonderful with our previous dog, so when we got a new dog we sought her out for training again. She has so much experience and really knows dogs, especially breed-specific tendencies. She takes charge and doesn't let the dog act out. She's the best trainer in the Albany area.
Lynnae is amazing!! She is patient, positive and really helped me understand how to work with my dog. My dog was super excited every time he saw Lynnae. He loved "practicing" with her! I would highly recommend Lynnae to anyone who is interested in not only training their dog but understanding them too!
I can't say enough positive things about Sarah Todd and the help she provided in the area of dog training for our problem. She came to our house and met our dogs and instructed us in a variety of ways about how to deal with the difficulties we were having with one of our dogs with regard to her (the dog) reactions to other dogs and certain other triggers that caused her to show aggression. Sarah was very patient and understanding providing insight into the reasons for our problem. In a very short time we have noticed a great deal of improvement in our dog. We would highly recommend Sarah as a dog trainer and behaviorist to anyone who needs these kind of services.
I took my new young dog for a private lesson with Melinda. We were already taking beginner agility lessons in a class at local dog club.. but Melinda's one-on-one was tailored for me and my dog. I've been trialing in agility for 13 years ... but Melinda has taught me new and better ways to train and practice. She is up to date on the latest techniques. She is over an hour drive for me, but well worth it.
At Waggin' Trailz, we want to be a part of your extended family!
Justina is amazing when we need a pet sitter we will only hire her! Our animals were so happy and well taken care of!
Tabitha has been a lifesaver for us! She has made herself available on our timeframe, has always shown up on time, and our puppy Wendell loves her :-)
I will walk your dogs and take good care of them. I am retired. I also have two dogs of my own and I love them very much. This would be a good job for me.
I do house sitting and dog sitting. I am a certified dog trainer. I can provide you with references. I travel as far as Florida. I have clients there.
I am originally from Rochester, New York. I've been training dogs for over five years. The main thing that I have learned in doing this is to be patient. Some dogs can be trained faster than others. It really depends on the breed, but all dogs are trainable. You just have to know and use their own instincts that they are born with. I train dogs that are not housebroken, jumping on people, biting, barking, and pulling when you walk them. I can also teach commands depending what your needs are and what you want from your pet. I can come to you or you to me, whichever makes you comfortable. I am looking forward for all of you dog lovers out there to contact me, so you can have control for your family member and not have family, friends or guests be afraid to enter your home or even to lock your family member away when you do have visitors.
Many people train their pets, or at least attempt to. But I go beyond that. I love dogs and want to do what I can to make living with them as easy as I can. A lot of people get frustrated because their dog pulls to much when they walk them, or because it won't learn to sit or lay down. I want to alieviate that frustration. I have trained many dogs, both my own and friends and they are amazed. When new people come over and see how many tricks/commands my dogs know and how well behaved they are they say how shocked they are. I own large dogs and I always get people that are scared because of their size. I promise them that they will do nothing other than sniff you, lick you, and wait for you to pet them. By the end of the evening, most want to take them home. I enjoy working with dogs, so I don't see it as a job that needs to be done, but a job that yes, needs to be done, but that I love every minute doing.
Tek was awesome guy. He send me pics every day of my dog. He was informing about everything what was going on. He figured what she likes and he was making her happy girl. They are very awesome with scheduling. I found them on the web in the last min and they understood my urgency. Will def keep them in mind and suggest them to my friends.
Alice is wonderful and did an excellent job taking care of our dog! We felt very comfortable leaving him under her care.
