I hired Cynthia as my dog trainer for several reasons. She got back to me right away, she was reasonably priced, she had great reviews, she has worked with a lot of German Shepherds, and she comes to my home. She has been here twice and is teaching me how to train my dog. She is patient, kind, and really knows her business. She is always encouraging, never impatient or unkind. I am looking forward to more lessons and I plan to take my dog to her for a two week stay so that she can really get my girl going in the right direction. Keesha is somewhat fearful so I feel that for Cynthia to be able work her magic she needs to have Keesha close by on a daily bases.

Molly Wong came today and after just an hour and a half I knew she was the perfect trainer. Our dog responded very quickly and we learned so much that we can immediately put into our daily routine. I'm very grateful.

Our experience working with Jamie to help train our dogs has been excellent. She involves the entire family and worked very well helping our kids work with the dogs. Her approach and techniques have been very effective with our dogs, especially our rescue. We highly recommend Jamie for any dog training assistance and will continue to have her work with our family for future dog training.

I feel I need to chime in on Kendra's innate ability with boarding animals. To say Kendra is good with pets is an understatement. Kendra goes the extra mile with each creature she comes in contact with; she has an animal rescue kit in her van just in case she comes across an animal in need! A few summers ago, I had a temporary job take me out of state for a month and couldn't take my cat with me. Frantically, I tried to think of a caregiver who would put up with my temperamental feline friend. My cat is not really a "people cat" and prefers not to be touched by anyone other than me; I was truly panicked about finding a place for her. Somehow my kitty was relaxed and at ease while purring and sitting on Kendra's lap only within a few short minutes of reaching the house (not something I have ever seen). Needless to say, all of my worries were put at ease immediately. If your loved one needs a place to stay, look no further! Kendra's compassion, openness and knowledge of dogs, cats, and other furry or feathered friends will amaze you.

Very knowledgeable! Hayley got together with us before we even got our puppy to offer advice on how to make the transition easier for everyone. Our dog was sitting by the first training session and laying down the next!

I would recommend Brenda for dog training. Her rates are very reasonable and she does the fair thing if time adjustments are needed. Brenda was patient and accommodating to our schedules. We'll be using her again as our puppy continues to grow and needs follow-up lessons or advanced lessons. Our puppy loves Brenda and gets very excited to see her when she comes for training. It was a win-win for us. Thanks Brenda!

Kymber began working with our dog Otis a couple months ago. Before meeting Kymber, Otis was extremely timid and lacked much confidence around other dogs. These personality traits definitely impacted his obedience in the house as well. Throughout our training, we worked on creating environments that would allow Otis to gain confidence and let his true personality shine. The result has been a much more confident, obedient, and happy dog. We could not be happier with the progress Otis has made and would recommend Kymber to any dog owner who needs some training help.

Risa is a lover of dogs and dog lovers. She has worked with my daughter for over a year with a rescue dog, Lexie. Risa has been patient in the training--she does not move on if more work is needed in a particular area, either on behalf of the dog or the owner. We have appreciated her work with us, and Lexie is a much more pleasant part of our family now. Risa also has a heart for pairing folks with disabilities with therapy dogs. Training and therapy dogs--Risa at George and Friends is THE Go-To Person!

Sheri Raynor has watched over my 2 dogs on a 5day a week schedule for over 3 years. She is very knowledgeable and has administered medications for them, groomed them and made them exceedingly happy! She is very trustworthy and flexible. When my husband died Sheri kept my household in one piece and absolutely kept my Labrador from being overwhelmed by the loss of his best friend. I highly recommend Sheri Raynor. She is the best!!!
