I have been in the dog training profession for over forty years and have known Kari Kerr as a dog training professional for over fifteen years. She has always demonstrated a very high standard of knowledge and customer service. I recommend her highly to anyone.

I have a fear reactive Catahoula/German Shepherd mix. We couldn't even go for walks before I sent Norah to Cynthia for three weeks. The fact that we also had training sessions that came with those three weeks has been SO helpful for post training life. I've recommended her to several people I know, and I recommend her to anyone that is reading this. Cynthia is affordable and down to earth. Norah is a completely different dog, happy to go out and to meet other dogs and have new experiences.
We have seen great improvement with our puppy thanks to Molly, our Great Dane has been leash reactive and would not listen to us when there were other dogs around. she has shown huge improvement and we are very happy with the training that both we and our dog received. I totally recommend her services.
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.
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.
She took great care of my dog Gilly
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.
Pet Professionals has been caring for my dogs for over 10 years, on weekly basis. It gives me great peace of mind to know that my 4-legged baby is being well cared for. Pet Professionals is responsible, dependable and flexible. I love the notes left after each visit.
My wife and I found Jeff at the sportsmen show earlier this year. We carefully explained to Jeff that I have had many dogs in the past but had always wanted a proffesionaly trained retiever. I explained I was adamant about the limited use of shock collar and a dog focused on hunting from a boat. Jeff said he focused on my concerns and the type of hunting I wanted a partner for. Jeff took my 90 lb over weight dog and returned to me a 70 lb dog that was all about hunting. After working her for two months I asked Jeff for some help with advanced tactics that I was struggling with, he provided me with advice that I found invaluable in completing my dogs training. After this season I intend to use Jeff's facility for another week of his proffesional training help to give closure to any new tactics I may want to add to my dogs abilities. Both Heather (Jeff's wife) and Jeff provide a environment that was easy for my dog to acclimate too and quickly be ready to meet the challenge given her.
Gail has been very professional. She has walked our sometimes stubborn and hard to manage Dalmatian for several months. She even takes pictures to let us see our dog when he takes a walk. She has given us advice about how to calm our dog for his separation anxiety and even given us a collar to help with his whining and barking. I cannot say enough about the level of professionalim and passion she has for animals. Hire her, she will take care of your animals with love, compassion and kindness like they are her own. Highly Recommended!
Bringing our Shiba inu to Holly was the best thing we ever did. We were at our wits end and didn't know what to do with her aggression. Holly took her in and treated her like her own with love and she has never been better! She listens, places, sits, comes, everything. We can have her around company and finally a real part of our family. Wouldn't have made it without Holly. She kept is updated and assured that she was greatly cared for when we did to want to let her go, well my boyfriend. :) best trainer out there! Do what's best for your family!!
dog and cat Sat. did what she needed to dogs and cats are happy
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.
I'm young and like to do anything possible to make the dogs happy and they make me happy.
I am a veterinary technician with over 25 years of experience. I love working with animals. I have shown terriers successfully in obedience and agility, using positive training methods. I treat each pet as my own, with love and kindness.
I love dogs and would love to have an opportunity to look after your pets. I can look after them when you are away on a vacation. I will walk them, play with them, and feed them.
