Nico is amazing! Our dog has been transformed by his training. He gives you the tools you need to have a well-trained dog and we are so happy with our experience! I would highly recommend Nico.
Jack did a wonderful job caring for our two dogs and cat. Also very happy that he successfully administered injections for our diabetic dog.
I was in need of next day pet sitting and new to the area. Carol had responded almost instantly, and to every follow-up question or message. She even made time that day for a meet and greet to cover my exact needs and concerns. As the owner of a sight hound breed, they require the strictest level of precautions once they set paws out the door. Rarely do I leave my canine with anyone, but Carol proved to be top-notch service hands-on and over the phone. Professional, let laid back enough to put me at ease, she took notes, asked ME questions and while sitting, kept in touch via text that included pics, updates and peace of mind - which is priceless to any dog lover and rescuer that demands the best of care for their companions. Carol's love for her job and compassion for pets just shines through. Give her your consideration. Her reviews speak volumes and I echo every one! Thanks tons, Carol!!
Deb was very professional and I felt extremely comfortable with her. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and I hung on her every word of advice. Her love for dogs is transparent. I have asked her to come out for a 2nd visit!
The people were very knowledgeable of the dog. And were pleasant to work with. Made sure you were satisfied with the job before you left.
Steve is a very knowledgeable dog trainer. His method of dog training is so easy to learn and has proven excellent results raising my puppy. Highly recommend him for any dog behavior problems!
Lisa was great! Very organized and professional. My dog has been listening and behaving so much better since classes with her! Her love for dogs really shows!! :)
We recently completed Adult 1 Manners with our 10 month old puppy, Foxy. It was so much fun to watch her "get it". As this is our first dog, much of the training helped us get comfortable with her. House breaking, biting, and jumping has improved with lighting speed. Her leash skills are much improved; she learned to wait for us as we go out the a door; she has learned how to go home to her bed; she responds to the word, "come" so much better then before. She has also learned to sit, lie down, stay and to leave it. We are looking forward to starting the Canine Good Citizen class. Marion has a way of balancing her professionalism with her humor. She is available for questions during class or afterwards by phone or email. She has a way of letting you know that you need to work a bit more if you want your dog to improve without putting pressure on you to do so. In addition to the skills we have learned in class we have learned things about the best kind of leash for our dog; when to use what kinds of treats; the best way to crate and ideas for practicing at home with the emphasis on a few minutes throughout the day rather than time consuming practices. We feel it has been well worth the 1/2 hour drive to Molasses Creek and recommend Marion as a trainer. Her greatest strength is her undeniable love of dog
I had never used any type of service to look after my dog. When I contacted Northeast Philadelphia Pet Sitting & Pet Care & met Mark Taplar I knew right away my Black Labrador would be in great hands. Over the two week period we saw nothing less than outstanding service, coupled with the superb love & caring for my dog. The highest rating we can give is 5 stars, but I rate them a 10!!
We rescued a 12 month old Aussie/Collie mix who is extremely smart but at the time, only knew how to sit when asked, was terrible on a leash, had zero ability to stay and jumped all over us every time we entered the home. After several sessions with Steve, we are happy to share that she now walks well on a leash, doesn't jump when we walk in the door (next step is training her for visitors), and stays when asked among many other new 'tricks'. Steve was very knowledeable and trained us how to train our dog. There's still plenty of room for additional training but Steve set us up in the right direction. I would highly recommend his services for dogs of any age!
Our dogs just love Michelle! She always communicates what us going on with our pooches, she genuinely cares about their needs and is responsive and reliable. To make things even better, she's affordable. Our family is super lucky to have found her!
We had one session today and my dog responded very well. Trainer is professional, caring, and addressed all of our questions. We signed up for 5 additional lessons.
Alyssa was very nice. She tried but our cat didn't do so well with a dog groomer. We need to have a cat specialist next time for our cat that got upset-even though Alyssa was very nice.
First time we used Kristin and we were very happy with the care our dogs received. We will use her again soon.
Nicole is awesome. She knows what she is doing and will make sure your dog is trained properly. We have used other trainers in the past and non compare to Nicole and what she does. If you want a great trainer Nicole is the one.
Pilar turned me and my dog, Blondie, into super walkers. Blonde used to pull me and twist me into circles chasing after critters, other dogs and people in her quest for love and affection. After spending time with Pilar, she stayed by my side, walked with a purpose, and waited for permission to play and to greet people. Pilar is amazing!
My DeNovo Canine experience was great. My dog had some obedience problems and was a pain to take on walks and hikes. Now Duke is great on the leash and an enjoyable hiking companion. I really enjoyed working with the trainer here and wouldn’t want to work with anyone else.
Great experience working with Mr. B! Patient with both my dog and myself, collaborative and professional. Highly recommend!
Love love love Athena Jones! She worked with our 9 yr old lab mix Onyx on following directions, especially where the cat is concerned. We couldn’t be happier with the results! She’s so knowledgeable about dog behavior and helped us understand what to expect. She’s patient and explains everything she does to us pet parents. Onyx gets so excited whenever she see’s Athena. You can just tell she’s an animal lover with a firm, yet gentle approach to training.
I have a 3 year old miniature schnauzer named Gia. My reason for having her join the pack was to get her more comfortable around other dogs. I spent a lot of time working with Gia and she is a good well trained dog except in this area. I couldn't get her over her fear of other dogs. She would bark and carry on whenever she saw another dog. She has been walking with the pack for a few months now and when Melissa picks her up she runs to the car and jumps in, she can't wait to see the other dogs. I would recommend Unmistakable Dog to anyone. Melissa does a wonderfully professional job. Linda M.
Tim is very responsive, and professional. Thank you for your time.
