  • Darwin Dogs LLC

    (55 reviews)

    My work stands out from others because this is my full time job. I do it every day, sometimes 7 days a week. I stand out because I am constantly honing my skills, and immersing myself in different training scenarios and combinations of issues. For example, a dog who doesn't walk well on a leash may require a little bit more finesse if the person who wishes to walk him is quite elderly and the dog is very large. Compound that if the dog is showing fear aggression towards other people or dogs. Since I am practicing my trade every day, several times a day, I have a broader scope of past experience to draw from. I also thoroughly enjoy my work. I am charmed by every dog I meet, and truly enjoy running into clients at the local pet store or while on a hike. I always welcome phone calls or emails, whether the day after training or 6 years later. I am always there to answer the questions! I thrive on the positive results I get several times a day. It's like climbing Mt. Everest every day, and reaching the top every time! Some problems seem just as insurmountable, but when I'm finished, I can proudly look at what I've accomplished and cherish the new, healthier and happier dog/owner bond I've helped create.

  • A Better Pet LLC

    (11 reviews)

    I help owners understand why having a dog learn and practice and maintain basic manners helps with day to day living in harmony and safety with their pets. Every day is different and I always get a little chill when an owner or their dog has an epiphany about how to move forward in being a better pet owner or pet.

  • Sits N Wiggles, LLC

    (3 reviews)

    Sits N Wiggles is a small family-owned and -operated pet sitting service with services focused on the east side of Cleveland. We do our best to provide you and your pets with the kind individualized care and attention that you deserve. We offer a variety of standard services but will work with you to construct the perfect service combination to provide custom services to meet the needs of you and your pets. Our passion is making sure your pet has a wonderfully grand time with the Sits N Wiggles staff. Sits N Wiggles has been a long-time dream come true for Valarie and Hannah Ross-Smith. Sits N Wiggles aims to be your pet's best friend while you are away. At SnW, we love bully breeds and rescues, but we love all animals. Because we are a force-free service, we do not promote the use of prong, pinch, training, choke, radio, or shock collars and will not use them when working with your dogs. If you do not have a flat buckle or martingale-style collar or harness, we will bring one with us to use. Also, we do not use retractable aka "Flexi" leads when walking your dog; we do not believe that they provide the control needed to keep dogs safe from any dangers we may come across while out walking and exploring. Valarie Ross-Smith has been an animal lover her whole life. She would train her horses and dogs using positive reinforcement before she even knew that was a thing. She has been a volunteer within the dog rescue community and foster parent for over 15 years. She has studied business and has her master's in business administration. She is currently working on obtaining her dog training certificate. Valarie will be handling most of the administration of Sits N Wiggles and soon will be the head trainer.
