Kari has helped me immensely with my puppy's training! With just one training session I have seen such a big improvement in my dog's behavior.
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.
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!
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.
Rebecca did a great job helping with my timid puppy!
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!
Dulce comes daily to take our dog for a walk mid-day. She is very responsible, noticed when our dog was limping and texted me right away, and gives me regular updates. We are working on proper leash walking and she is open to be consistent with our training approach. I feel quite comfortable having my puppy in her care.
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.
The pet sitters I have had felt like family! My kitties and pup love the attention and sweet care they get! I don’t worry when my pets are in their care. Highly recommend to anyone who loves their pet!!
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 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.
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!!
I like dogs
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.
We offer professional dog training and boarding services for all breeds, ages, and sizes of dogs. We provide custom programming to fit you and your dog where every dog is treated like one of our own. We used fair and balanced methods to achieve best results with a happy dog and owner! We are owned by a master certified trainer.
We offer all species training and pet care. We help pets and owners build a healthy relationship through training, reinforcement, and communication.
Giving your dog the best care is my top concern! I offer walks, some training, and feeding.
I have been working with animals all of my life. And yes, I'm at a "mature" age!! You need to balance people, emotional beings, with dogs, pack animals. I feel we should not try to make dogs into people, but meet them halfway with communication. We becoming part dog and they becoming more compliant to human needs.
