We are so happy with our dog walker, Sharon! She is so kind and wonderful with our boy, Logan. He loves his mid-day walks and treats!

I had a great experience working with Matt! not only is he personable and easy to work with, but he is an excellent dog trainer. We were able to transform a gigantic stray shepard puppy from a total maniac into a calm, obedient buddy in 2 sessions. This is a very practical and effective method of training. If you're on the fence just go for it. You AND you dog will be much happier.

Jessica kept our high energy dog, Sookie, for 8 days over Christmas. We were so extremely pleased with the service that she provided. She sent daily updates and even a picture, which was such a comfort to us. Jessica kept a detailed log of food and activities which was also comforting. Even ridiculous things that we dog owners think are important (like special treats and activities on Christmas) were important to Jessica as well. We will leave Sookie with Jessica again and again (as often as she'll say yes!).

My wife and I signed our Weimeraner up for the two week crate and train package and l can say with 100% certainty that it was the best money we've ever spent. Prior to the training my wife simply couldn't handle our dog. He is too big and too strong for her to control (not to mention that it's pretty embarrassing to be pulled around constantly by your dog). We met with the trainers (Buck and Sue) and knew immediately we had found the right place. We dropped our pup off, went on our honeymoon, and picked up a completely different dog. Like night and day. He went from pulling like a sled dog on leash to walking right next to us without one. He listens, obeys, and is overall a pleasure to be around. When we picked him up Buck and Sue took all the time we needed to show us how to properly use his commands and taught us the dos and donts that will insure proper behavior. Now I take him to the trail all the time with no leash in sight and let him do his own thing knowing that at any moment for any reason I can call him right back to my side with no problem whatsoever. We went from embarrassed to gushing with pride as we constantly are receiving praise for how well behaved and trained our dog is. Buck and Sue are the nicest and most genuine people you could ever hope to have molding your dog (they cried when we picked him up just like we did when we dropped him off). They sent us tons of pictures and videos of the training process while we were gone so we could see his progress and never feel like he was too far away. If you want to have the best behaved dog in your neighborhood or are having trouble with at home training then you don't have to look any further than Offleash K9. My friends are all looking to have their pups trained there and any dog we have in the future will absolutely be spending some time with the BEST TRAINERS IN PITTSBURGH. You're the Best Luke, Shelle, and Ruxin

I hired Puppy A GoGo to tend to my two dogs while I was recovering from surgery and unable care for them myself. Judy was awesome! She arrived when expected, administered medications as required, took them for their walk and fed them. She was reliable and really bonded with and took excellent care of my babies. I would highly recommend Puppy A GoGo!

When our dog reached 7 years of age, we used Tracy to stop by, to walk and let our dog out for bathroom breaks, while we were working. Tracy is very caring, trustworthy and reliable. Tracy would stop by when we were home, and our dog would be excited to see her! I wouldn't hesitate to utilize Tracy's services again.

I’ve learned more at a couple of classes at Splash n Dash than in all the books I have read and 40 years of dog ownership. Agility training and Flyball have changed my dog Dougal from a frustrated and slightly destructive dog into a very happy and well behaved companion and established a special bond between us.

I have use Fetch several times for the care of my two, now three dogs. I have a 15 year old Lhasa and 5 year old lab mix. Brownie likes to stay at home. Valerie from Fetch has watched him and my 5 year old Jasmine several times when we go out of town. Jasmine is very shy but she adores Valerie. The in house care is so much better for my dogs They are not " strange" when we return and most importantly, they have not picked up any kennel disease - pink eye, runs etc I now have a new puppy.. a surprise puppy. Fetch sitter Beth was able to take her home ... where she was with Beth all day. No long day in the cage for her. She did not regress in her house breaking. I recommend Fetch to all my friends !

This trainer has a very confident manner and my dog reacted well to him. I am learning a lot about dog behavior and how to read my dog's body language. He has given me great information and tips covering many different areas of my dog's reactions. I would recommend him highly to anyone serious about doing the work to strengthen their bond with their furry friend. Enjoyable too

Jess took great care with my two dogs and cat while we were on vacation. I knew from the moment I met her that the animals would quickly adapt to her caring for them. They instantly fell in love with her wonderful personality and passion for animals. Dependable, caring, and affordable. Highly recommend.

They have the best working dogs in the Ohio valley area and if they don't have 1 they can get 1 in. Definitely the best kennel to get a great dog or puppy from.

Andrea is absolutely fabulous! We learned more in an hour and a half with Andrea than 6 weeks of a stock training class at a retail pet store. The one on one attention and completely customized approach was key for our 3 month old German Shepherd puppy. I watched him learn a series of commands in a matter of minutes. I feel armed with the knowledge I need to be able to successfully and effectively train my puppy. Looking forward to our next lesson!
