Kari from Critters is absolutely amazing. She is matter of fact, patient, and intuitive. She was able to "read" our dog, a stubborn 200 pound Newfoundland, and interpreted small signs that indicated why he was unwilling to go in the car. In less than 45 minutes, she had him going in and out. Half of the battle is undoubtedly training the dog owners, and she did that, too, with grace, patience, and professionalism. Really great service, worth much more than we paid.

After our German Shepherd puppy attacked the neighbors dog we decided enough was enough and found Cynthia through Thumbtack. After talking with Cynthia we decided to leave our boy with her for 2 weeks of boarding school. It was a night and day difference. He still has some aggressive issues but we're working through that with additional training and socialization. Dog training isn't just for the dog, it's for the owner as well. We try to meet with Cynthia 3-4 times a month. I recommend the two week boarding/training and then follow up sessions.

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.

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.

I broke my leg a while back and have been unable to get my very active dog out for exercise. I found out about Linda on this website and have been extremely happy with her abilities. Linda is one of the friendliest people I have ever met and absolutely loves dogs. She has been walking my dog for almost 2 months now and my dog worships her. He anxiously awaits her arrival on those special days and they always have great walks. She is also quick to note when he wants to play and gladly accommodates him. I would highly recommend Linda for anyone who is interested in this type of service.

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!

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!!

About

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

We provide dog walking & pet care services for all breeds. Whether your dog needs a quick 15 minute potty break or prefers an hour long stroll through the park, we're happy to spend time with your pooch while you are away. We also provide pet sitting services for cats, rabbits and all your other furry friends.
