Christine was fantastic and super helpful helping me with my puppy and making me feel hopeful that I can do this. I want to have a well trained dog and I know it starts with her training now and I am well on my way thanks to Christine!
Deedee is an excellent dog trainer and business woman. Hire her!
Paula is absolutely the best dog trainer. She not only trains the dog but also the dog owner. Even dog owners who had previous canine family members (we had three) will learn much from Paula. Why? Because not all dogs are the same. Paula had our 1 1/2 year old Standard Schnauzer Storm obeying commands on the first visit. Storm also looked forward to Paula's training visits .... and to tell the truth, so did we. We followed her instructions and so does Storm. We would highly ... and I mean highly recommend Paula. If you do what Paula says and work with your canine family member, you will see nothing but excellent results.
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.
Jen provides an amazing service with Dog Gone Walking. Super accommodating, super friendly, and super good with the dogs. They've been walking Lincoln for 2 years now. Can't recommend highly enough!
Paw & Order Dog Training has been a huge help with my dog. When I came to them I had already been to two different trainers with no luck. My dog is dog & people reactive so he was quite a challenge. Jamie is always a call/text away. Even 2.5 years after starting training, we still attend monthly pack walks to brush up on our skills. They also board Brody for me when I travel as a typical kennel is not an option for him. We are able to do things together that I never thought would be possible for him! I cannot recommend them enough.
Jessica has been coming to our home to take care of our three dogs. It's been a great experience. When scheduled, she comes twice a day to let them out and feed them. I used to have a problem getting our border collie to go downstairs for the day when I would leave for work. I've even had to carry him down there. Not anymore. I just say, "Jessica is coming today" and off he goes! I love knowing that my dogs are well taken care of. I also love reading Jessica's notes that she leaves about what went on that day. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone needing dog care.
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
Carol is my new go-to girl. She was so good to my cat Pencils, kept in communication with me while I was on vacation for two weeks - sent me a photo of pencils while we were away - she was great. Super experienced and reassured me that my cat would be just fine while I was away when I was panicking. She certainly was well taken care of! When I picked Pencils up, her fur was super soft and it was clear that she was brushed really well (she usually sheds quite a bit). Carol is great, it doesn't get any better than that. Her prices beat any kennel or cage free cat houses. My cat is adventurous and loved watching the fish in Carol's fish tank and playing with her dogs. Carol even offered to pick Pencils up 30 minutes away from her house. She is very knowledgable and friendly. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Carrie and her husband took great care of my cat while I was away. She kept me up-to-date on his status with pictures and texts. Would definitely hire again.
So far she has been perfect. Very professional and good with my dog.
She was wonderful. My dogs can be high maintenance and a kennel isn't an option so Tracy was a huge help. We will def. be using in her services again in the near future.
Darlene is a delight to work with. I was at first nervous about leaving my 2 pups. They are bigger dogs and love attention. But after meeting with her and her correspondence while we were away, all worries melted away. The dogs seem to love her her and she's very good with them. Highly recommended.
I can't brag enough about how great Beth and her Fetch Pet Care Service is...my 1 yr. old bulldog and 16 yr. old mix breed were cared for lovingly in her home, exercised at the dog park, played with by her children, what more could you ask for?? It's above and beyond daycare. While we were on vacation, Chubbz had an infected rash and Beth didn't hesitate to get him to the vet and administer medicine during the week. She sent pix of the dogs and kept us updated...free of worry and able to relax and know my dogs were in good hands. Highly recommend her services.
We brought our 12 week old St Bernard to the Star Puppy class at the Canine Club under trainer Stephanie Barber and Toni. Our puppy has retained the good habits we worked on in class. The positive reinforcement training is very effective. Our family was welcome there including our four young children which was the main reason I signed up for the class. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a kind, knowledgeable instructor. Sincerely, Michele and AJ Liberatore and family
You can tell Dayton's love for dogs. He is very good in training us to help get our springer spaniel puppy under control
I have watch one of my favorite Stays with Thumbtack. Rover isnt A good pick. I had a hard time picking a sitter i could trust. My dogs are like my babies and I am responsible they have no voice . I have to be able to trust thier care I do with Thumbtack and Fetch.
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.
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
Melissa is an amazing trainer! She has been helping me train my dog, Boone, in nose work and without her help we wouldn't have made any progress as her hands on lessons made night and day difference. I can see a huge difference in my dogs confidence and in his ability to follow commands. Definitely would recommend V Force training for anyone looking to have fun and excel with creating a better bond with their dog!
