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.

Jan was just great on every level. She made our cavapoo's first grooming experience very positive - he will look forward to her next visit despite the fact that he's not thrilled with being brushed. Her patience and care is beyond compare.

We really enjoy working with Nico! We needed help potty training our puppy and getting him on a consistent schedule. Nico's advice was excellent, and we've made more progress in a week than we thought we would in a month. Within a few days our pup was free of accidents and learning some really important tricks. The new schedule even has him sleeping through the night. Thanks, Nico! We're looking forward to more lessons!

It is very difficult leaving my dog and cat when going away, but knowing that Pam is taking care of them relieves me of any anxiety I might have. She is reliable, trustworthy and is a true lover of animals. I know they are in excellent hands and recommend highly Pam for any of your pet needs.

Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.

Heather is very competent. My very large dog was an obnoxious jumper and had to be locked up every time anyone came into the house. She almost knocked some of my friends to the floor with her jumping!! Now I am able to control her and she no longer jumps up on people. Finally I have a dog with good manners! Heather stressed how important it was for me to be motivated to participate in the training of my dog, so I did my homework faithfully in between sessions, and was incredibly consistent, which really paid off. Heather is an excellent trainer and if you're really ready to work along with her you'll have a well mannered and happy dog.

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!

Ryker LOVES Mark. I've seen such a huge improvement pertaining to many of Ryker's behavioral issues since we started working with Mark and am looking forward to seeing many more. I'd previously done a bit of training with Ryker, but never got these types of results. Extremely happy with his service and would recommend 100%!!!!

It is with great pleasure that we write a note recommending New Beginnings Dog Training ! We are absolutely delighted with the experience Raffie, our 7 month old Standard Poodle had with Kristy at her home...she did a wonderful job with him. Don't hesitate to call her if you want your dog trained properly ..... showing caring and kindness while getting wonderful results....she's terrific and we highly endorse her work. Raffie had all kinds of experiences while he was living with her to board and train over a two week period; she's the best ! Tom and Sandi....Reading, Pa.

We hired Olivia as soon as we saw how she interacted with our border collie; could tell she was the right choice. Olivia proved herself to be trustworthy, enthusiastic, flexible, communicative, and most importantly very caring and dedicated with our border collie! She even did two unforeseen but needed dog visits when our second carer couldn't make the middday walk. She also filled bird feeders, took in the mail, and took time to play with our dog. We will hire her again when we go out of town, and we highly recommend her services!!

Robin has watched our pets over night and has also walked our dog, Gus, for us when we couldn't be there because of work. She is outstanding!! Our Gus adores her!! I've come home early and found that she doesn't cut the time short. We had a problem with this before, Robin stays as long as she says she will! And she is personal with our dog. She gets right down on the floor and plays with him. I would recommend her to any one that really loves their dog and wants him to know it!!!

    I have two 60lb pit bulls that are generally well behaved, but one is animal aggressive. They get along great, but he is a rescue and was a bait dog. It's very difficult to socialize him.
