Although I have zero professional dog training experience, I do have a human/animal psychology degree, so I know which schools of thought work best and which are pseudoscience and Lisa uses the best current method available called operant conditioning, or positive reinforcement. It sounds simple, but without professional help it can be hard to figure out what exercises to use when you want to remove unwanted behaviors instead of just training your dog to do tricks. It can also be difficult to phase out treat use once a behavior is mastered (since no one wants to need perpetual treats to achieve good behavior). Lisa makes all that guesswork easy by giving you training exercise "homework" each week customized to your dog's behavioral needs, which will lead to newly shaped desirable behaviors to replace undesirable ones. You can tell she is really passionate about what she does. She doesn't judge or try to correct what you find acceptable behavior in your own dog as some trainers will (i.e. allowing dogs on furniture) but she instead listens to YOUR behavioral goals for your dog and helps get you there. Last but not least, her price is the best I've seen for her amazing skill level. To compare, I sent my dog to a training center for just a week, and it was $750 for him to come back with sit, stay, lay down, and heel which are great commands, but at that price Lisa could have come to my house 13 times. Plus, they used a prong collar on unwanted behaviors that we're still using as management only (even in the house which I fear will cause injury) which is why we called Lisa. We're already on a path to no leash indoors with a 6 month old goldendoodle.
I decided to use a pet sitter for the first time on my recent business trip. Previously using various kennels and finding friends to take care of my dogs. I am very happy with Furball Fitness! I got updates on every visit and a picture of them. The dogs were happy when we returned and not stressed like in previous situations. I will definitely use them again and I highly recommend it.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Sarah! She definitely loves her job and loves pets! She sent text picture updates for our dog so we knew she was in good hands! Was able to schedule boarding last minute and great pricing and care! HIGHLY recommended The Dog Loft!!!!!!!
Susan is great with my cat Molly. She is very detail-oriented and getting updates and pictures are wonderful. I'd highly recommend Susan if you need a pet sitter!
Brenda is great! She has watched my 3 pets multiple times now, even doing overnight stays to care for my puppy (who likes to bark). She actually spends quality time with your pets unlike other sitters I've tried in the past. Thank you Brenda for your help, the pups and Emma will miss you when we move!
Denise has dog sat for us many times over the years and did an excellent job! She has also owned cats and dogs, all of which were very wel loved and we'll taken care of. I would recommend Denise as an animal sitter to anyone.
WWE loved The pet nanny. She was great!! Sophie loved her too.
Review: Tim Bruno, Pack Boss LLC Tim was my dog sitter and trainer for several years. If I could have brought him to Colorado with me, I would have! The dogs enjoyed him – good runs/walks, other dogs and people to play with (and Tim made them all mind their manners). He’s reliable and sends quick updates while one is gone. Tim helped me work through some behavioral issues with one of my dogs who started biting people, and even wrote an affidavit for the court appearance. Tim is also a veteran – you’ve trusted him with your life and freedom, now trust him with your pets.
Caremen @ Just Fur the Weekend Pet Care has been caring for our fur babies for 1 year and a half. Our pets have some special health care needs and Carmen takes excellent care of them. She is very dependable and we know our puppies are in good hands when she is taking care of them.
Ashley is very dedicated to her job. She took care of my cat for a month in an excellent way. We were constantly in contact, and she sent me pictures and videos of my cat to show me how she was doing. My cat loves her now. She was also so very nice to water my plants. I highly recommend her as a cat sitter.
Met Courtney and she is very down to earth and understands we all have busy schedules. Her rates are good and she is definitely an animal lover. Definitely worth a chat if in need of pet sitting!
Tory is an excellent pet sitter. She is very attentive to the specific needs of my dogs and accommodating when it comes to scheduling.
Anna takes excellent care of Pippa, my 1 year old golden retriever, and I don't have to worry about her at all while we're gone. She's one of the VERY few people I trust to care for my fur-baby! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, responsible pet sitter in the area.
Extremely professional, very loving with our dogs, patient and definitely go the extra mile. One of our dogs is very stubborn about going out in the rain. They went the extra mile to make sure our pets were able to do their business when it was pouring outside! Outstanding business, we will definitely be entrusting Purr and Paw Home Care with our pets each time we leave. Love that they can stay in the comfort of our home while we are away.
