I don't understand the previous negative review at all. Elaine worked with our 3 large, mixed breed dogs for a total of 3 sessions. Two of the dogs were showing fear-based aggression, which Elaine took the time to explain the signs of their fear and showed how our actions were making matters worse. While it is called dog training, it is really owner education. We now have the tools to manage our dogs in a way that is enjoyable to both us and our dogs. She not only deals with the current behavior, but educates the owner for the future. There has been a tremendous change in our dogs and we look forward to their continued improvement. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Steve worked well with not only my dog that I am having some training issues with but also my 15 yo (he was able to pinpoint items on him that I never really noticed but realize now he can improve on). He was wonderful to work with and patient and professional. He was very knowledgeable as well. I would highly recommend.

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!

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.

My two dogs attended Adult Manners I class with Marion O'Neil. Marion did give us many tips on how to help our dogs follow direction. They have both made strides in their behavior. We are pleased that we attended Molasses Creek Dog Training.

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.

Experienced dog trainer helping me with my puppy. Smooth experience! Never realized how smart a 12 week old puppy could be. So worth the obedience skills. My puppy is crate trained. Walks nicely on a leash and does basic obedience and beyond!! So worth it!

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 Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward

I am a self-employed dog walker! I care for a Saint King Charles Cavalier. He is four years old, and we walk for 1-2 hours per day. I give him a treat, food and water on his return. He's a good dog! Check me out on Facebook.

    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.
