My cat, Lulu, had the works done. Bath/ear cleaning/nail clip/dematting/trimmed hair in sensitive area. Lulu looks like she is ready for her photo shoot! Rachel was wonderful, she is knowledgable and you can see and feel how much she loves animals. I will be taking Lulu in for regular grooming from Rachel.Jan 21, 2017VerifiedRachel Peters's reply
Thank you for your business and she was such a pleasure , I can't wait to see her next.
Punctual, but too expensive for me. Maybe not enough experience for my type of dogJun 26, 2017Rachel Peters's reply
I am very sorry that you felt that way. What I gave you a price for can always be discounted, payment plans and I even state on my profile for those who need it I even do probono work. My experience comes from 7 years of rehabilitating rescues, Certified Dog and Cat Grooming, Knowledge assessed and behavioral Certified, along with Schooling, hands on training and seminars, and a Veterinary program Certification. Not to mention I help with legislation and make sure laws are being upheld and I am very active in the community for this as well. I actually realize that Ohio's Assistance Dog Registration is discriminating and leaves out thousands of serious life debilitating disabilities and goes against the Federal ADA act and The Rehabilitation Act for Service Dogs and am fighting hard to change these laws as well.
Very kind and attentive. Also able to help identify problems and solutions.Jul 7, 2017Verified
She worked with my pup and she is very, very knowledgeable. She cares about your dog and wants what best for them. She understands some dogs (mine) had s rough start in life and could get flustered fast and never gave up. I recommend here. We still keep in contact!Oct 14, 2017Verified
She knows dogs. Our stubborn pet listens to her, and obeys.Feb 17, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Unfortunately you can never really tell until you see the dog in person and what the issues truly are or why it is happening. Simpler issues like puppy training will always be less then any type of biting or aggression issues. I give a round about price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Forming a relationship with their concerns for their animals safety, behavior and what their needs and ultimate goals are for their training and how to make a program where everyone can be happy. At the same time I am able to observe and pick up on any specific behavioral needs or concerns that I may see but the owners may not be aware. If they are having trouble walking on a lead I go over what type of collar and leash we are using. I inquire into background of the pet, medical issues, age, anxiety, behaviors around strangers or other pets. Asking specific questions about certain behaviors that they dislike and how have they already tried to handle it. I take into consideration breed types and energy levels and needs. We will go over nutrition and what schedules and routines that they follow regularly. Then making a program that I the pet could respond well tooand explaining certain needs that they might have that might not be being met. Setting up preferred days and times for training and go over what we need do address immediately but also what we will cover entirely. Exposing to them that the most important part of training is following through and being very consistent with their behaviors and actions towards specific issues we are dealing with. Puppies are always given necessary breaks when needed, so are any pets that are scared or have never been properly socialized, abused or neglected.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went through training and schooling for almost a year and was Certified, Numetous hands on seminars for Rehabilitation and behavioral modification training, handling and safety training, training in how to understand, relate and communicate with pets, ongoing seminars and training in hair dying and creative styling. Training in Canine Massotherapy. Ongoing schooling with credits and certifications attached regularly.
