I am a dog rescuer and we always use a professional with any of our puppies in rescue. For this puppy it is a puppy our family adopted and in doing so she needs taught how to be a well behaved and balanced dog...it's my duty as her owner to help her thus we train with someone who knows all about it...and we prefer to support small business in our area. In the first meeting with Kristine she taught me more in that two hours than any trainer I have used in the past. She was had a wonderful presence both on the phone and in person. I found Kristine to be easy to talk to, very professional, highly educated on dogs and behavior, a force free trainer (which is all we believe in), SO kind & friendly and above all my dogs LOVED HER! We have hired her for ongoing training for both the puppy and our adult dog (who could use some advance training). I am THRILLED with her as a trainer and as a person...I think she is FANTASTIC and I HIGHLY recommend for anyone that has a dog. Do yourself and your dog a favor so you have a wonderful life with your BFF and hire this woman...I promise it will be the best money you will ever spend on your dog. #supportingsmallbusiness
We just finished week 2 of training with our dog and we have noticed a huge difference already. Can't wait to see how much more we can achieve
As the owner of a puppy, we needed care midday. Dog Gone Walking has provided the care we need. They arrange appropriate play dates along with individual walks. The daily journal is great so we can see when they were here and what our dog did. Scheduling was fast and easy. I highly recommend their services.
We sent our dog for training and boarding with Matt. It has been wonderful experience. She listens without yelling. No more jumping, barking, nipping...Matt did a fantastic job training our dog and us! Matt is calm, kind and extremely good at his job!!
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 !
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
Thank you, Puppy A Go Go! We couldn't have been happier with your service! We really loved all the text updates, pictures and videos sent of them playing! We felt such comfort being away from our pups knowing they were being loved and cared for so well!
I attended puppy classes with each of my two dogs with Penny. Penny is great and has lots of ideas for all types of behaviors. I will definitely go back for more classes and training.
Tracy has been very cooperative and works around our schedule to ensure our puppy gets the attention she needs while we are away. We feel extremely comfortable having her come and take care of Nala, whom seems to love her. I would highly recommend her for your services.
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!
I have very flexible scheduling and my own transportation. Contact me as I'm available 24/7. Resume and references are available. I can start immediately.
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!
The only service we have had so far is the in home consultation. It was excellent. Extra time spent with us discussing our issues with our dog. We were given suggestions that we have already put into place. Have training scheduled, cant wait to begin. Would definitely 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
