I highly recommend Cynthia and assure you will be extremely happy with her services. I left my 7 month old German Shepherd,Kobe, with her for 3 weeks. It was difficult to be away from him for so long but worth it. Kobe walks great on a leash now. He follows commands sit, stay, off, come, place, and down. He even sits and waits at the door nicely before being released to go through the doorway. Cynthia treats your dog as her own. While Kobe was in her care, she identified some stomach issues and changed his food, with my permission. As a result, Kobe's stomach issues improved. It was evident upon picking Kobe up, at the end of his 3 weeks of training, that Kobe had bonded with Cynthia. On pickup day, she spends the time needed for you to feel comfortable learning all the commands your dog has learned and teaches you how to walk with your dog correctly. Please choose Cynthia for your dog's training needs. You will be very satisfied with your pup's progress.

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.

Haley is wonderful! My new shelter dog is so, so anxious and we were lost before Haley. She has given us the tools to help him adjust and train him into becoming the family dog he wants to be. She is respectful and sensitive to him and our family. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Nicole was amazing! We only had a few days with her and she taught us everything she possibly could. She was assertive with our pup and help us do the same. My husband did the sessions with me and while he practiced with our dog, I practiced with Flynn, Nicole's well trained Australian Shepherd. That proved to best way for us to learn as we were both able to be active. Watching her with her dog provided a great example to us if what we were training our dog to do. Nicole was patient and very helpful. He repeated herself often and encouraged us to take notes to ensure that we grasped every concept she taught us. Our 6 month old puppy is doing great! He walks well on a leash and obeys commands like come, sit, down, stay, and heel. We are now practicing of leash training and with Nicole's help he is doing great! I would recommend her to anyone who has adopted a dog of any age.

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.

Gail is a tremendous pleasure to work with. Her empathy, compassion and love for animals is transparent in the bond she shares with them. At the time, I first met Gail my dog, Sadie, was having mobility issues. Sadie responded to Gail’s massage therapy with more energy & vitality in her daily activities. She was always excited to see her come through the front door of our home and relished the love & care she received from her tender touch.

Our family adores Ashley and so does our little dog, Bowie. We are so glad she came into our lives! We thought we were just getting a dog walker, but we got that and someone who is invested in our dog's training and success. Ashley is working with Bowie to make sure his transition from being a stray to being a beloved family pet is smooth and healthy for everyone. I can't recommend her highly enough!

My girl and I love dogs. We have two golden doodles and we know if you have a busy schedule, it's hard to make sure that your dogs are properly taken care of. She's a grad school student and I have a very odd work schedule that allows for extra free time for long stretches. We're new to Thumbtack and don't have an official business license, but we know how to take excellent care of dogs. We'd be willing to travel to pop in for a home visit to feed and walk or pet sit at our place while you are gone. Our two dogs love other dogs, so if yours do too, they can socialize in a much more mild setting than a kennel with so many others.

About

I love dogs, and I love animals that are happy and excited to have a friend. I love being active, and because I live where I can't have animals, I found a way to make sure I can put that love to others who need it. My service starts at 10 dollars and up for any kind of service you're looking for. Thank you!
