We were extremely pleased with Elaine's service and knowledge of dog training. After just one visit we finally have a more disciplined dog and more peaceful nights. Thank you Elaine!!! The Montesano Family
Steve did a great job in not only training my dog but training me to understand the reasoning behind everything. He made sure I knew why we did something and how to correct my dog's actions if necessary. Steve was very informative and helpful and made it known he's only a phone call away if I need assistance on something or have a quick question.
Sandy was prompt and well informed. She got right to business and had my dog responding to the training immediately. I will hire her again as needed.
Deb from Doggies in the Ruff had my exuberant adult Lab and Shorkie puppy eating out of her hand within minutes of meeting them. In addition to Deb's dog walking service, I've also taken advantage of her separate dog training service and have seen improvements in my Shorkie puppy already. Her rates are very reasonable and the peace of mind I have knowing I can rely on someone as experienced as her is priceless.
Nico did an excellent job with my adopted pitbull rescue. She was always a sweetheart, but coming from an abusive environment and into a new home, she was scared and untrusting of most humans -- especially guests who came to our home. With Nico's help she's now coming out of her shell and is more relaxed around people. The basic training regiment made a very big difference!
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
She was on time and very professional.. will hire again .. very good with my pet pit/lab mix .. he was very stubborn but after training a different dog.. thank you great job!!
No exaggeration -- Emma Keeler is the BEST dog walker I've ever had. But she's much more than just a dog walker -- thanks to Emma's training and behavior expertise, my dog and I can communicate more effectively, and our relationship is now practically stress free. Emma is kind and friendly, and truly invested in the well-being of ALL her clients -- both four- and two-legged :) I'm so glad (and VERY thankful) I found her!
Steve is definitely a professional and we are so glad that we chose to train our puppy with him. After our training session with Steve; it was like we had a completely different dog. Thank you Steve for listening to our concerns, for being so patient with us and making sure we were comfortable and confident with everything. We also appreciate that Steve continues to provide support if we ever need it in the future.
My female Dog is still in training . But as so far , its been great having J-mac K 9 deal with the situation we have with the dog . Our communication has been really supportive for us . Thank you.
First Class Wags is a first class company! The owner, Robin, is on the ball with replying to requests for service. She and her staff are very accommodating, and very professional. My dogs look forward to their dogwalker spending time with them, and they are a lot happier. Neighbors have remarked how happy my dogs are when they are out with their dogwalker. And, if the dog is happy, the mom is happy!
Great experience working with Mr. B! Patient with both my dog and myself, collaborative and professional. Highly recommend!
If you are like me, I want to know if Bridget Gallagher is good without a lot of words. In short, my wife and I highly recommend Bridget for any issues you may be having. Even if you are not having issues, it was well worth the time to be taught how to handle your dog and to know what works with them. We had Sully doing more after 4 hours than 6 weeks of obedience classes.` Now for those who would like more info. Here is the longer story: We adopted Sully from a breeder in Maryland. We met Sully and his brothers and sisters at the breeder and fell in love. Sully was a very calm 5 Â½ month old puppy that played well with his family and enjoyed our touch. His personality fit in perfectly. Sully came home with us and was an angel in the car. We introduced him to others and took him out to stores with no issues except he was shy. After a couple of weeks, he started barking and growing at anyone who came into the house and out in public. Our son, who is attending college, came home for a week and Sully would bark and growl at him every time he saw him. He never really warmed up to our son. This behavior seemed to be getting worse (nipping started) and we wanted to find someone who could help us. We were told he would be okay after going to obedience training which we were doing. The class taught us to give him treats. That never really did work. He would do the commands but it never helped with the barking and growling. I felt he had either a fear of people, lacked confidence or we were not doing something right. I owed several dogs and never had a problem. I reached out to a lot of trainers and dog behaviorists who said that they could help but I had seen mixed reviews with all of them. Some were using a prong collar and tough love. I just did not get a good feeling. I called my vet for a reference (who never got back to me) and others to no avail. I did some other searches and finally found Bridget. We saw her testimonials on line, talked with her on the phone and found other reviews not associated with her web site. My wife and I finally made a decision and had Bridget come to our house. When she arrived, Sully growled and barked at her when she met him outside. The next 4 hours were simple AMAZING. She explained to us what we had to do and how to do it. It was just SO simple. Bridget has a wealth of knowledge and experience with dogs and how and why they behave as they do. She is so committed to helping and educating you so you are able to work with your dogâs behavior problem. She even went with us to 2 pet stores to see strangers so she could show us how to stop the barking and growing and how to introduce him to strangers. By the end of the 4 hours, we had Sully: â¢ Being introduced to strangers with VERY little barking and almost no growling â¢ Staying in place with NO words â just hand motions and body language â¢ Sat at the door and staying there without rushing outside â waited to be told to go out â¢ No jumping or counter surfing Understanding how the dog thought was fantastic and so very cool. Just amazing what she taught us and what she could have us do that worked right away. The next day my wife and I took him separately on walks that met strangers and our training worked. He barked a little but we stepped in to stop the barking before the growling started. He calmed down and was able to greet the stranger with no issues.
We have used John and Susan at No Worries Pet Care since we rescued our baby pitbull, Brooklyn, earlier this year. While we both work fulltime, we felt it would be best to have someone come to give her the attention, effection and exersize she needs during the day. John and Susan provide more than we could have ever asked. They love Brooklyn like she is their own. They help us with training techniques and teaching her puppy manners. Brooklyn is so excited when they come see her. We know she loves them and they love her. Hiring No Worries Pet Care for our little girl is the best decision we could have made and we couldn't be happier with what they do for us.
