So glad we hired Anna. She helped us to understand that our dog was anxious, and not aggressive, and gave us invaluable advice on how to work with him and work to break unwanted behaviors. The time she spent with us was informative and enlightening. While we have always tried to be responsible and attentive pet parents, Anna helped us identify areas where we were subconsciously giving our dog the wrong cues, as well as being inconsistent in our day to day expectations of him. Her follow up after the appointment has been thorough and much appreciated. She emailed us the same evening with a run down of all the points we discussed, followed up multiple times in the days following to see how things were going, and offered encouragement and advice. All around a wonderful experience and though it is still early after our appointment, we can already see improvements in our dog's behavior. I look forward to watching not only our pup, but us as parents, grow and learn.
We have been working with Nikki for awhile now. Our dog, Nya, is fearful aggressive towards people and dogs. Our pup has made unbelievable progress! We were not going to give up on our dog and neither was Nikki. She now has 2 human friends(one is a male who was at the bottom of her liking totem pole), a few pup friends and working on having a few more(even males!). She walks great on a leash thanks to the group classes. Everyone in class always says how Nya has made the most progress. Nikki even told us we were one of her toughest cases. We can now have people over and Nya will stay away from unfamiliar faces but at least we can have company and not have a dog freaking out on the end of her leash with teeth baring. Friends are even impressed with her behavior. Everyone in class is so patient with us too and I love seeing the progress in all of the other dogs in class as well. We will be going on our 3rd round of classes shortly and will continue to work with Nikki!!! Great trainer!! Thank you for guiding us to success and showing Nya that the world is not out to get her!
Janice has an excellent knowledge of dogs and their behavior. My barkers were quickly calmed by her gentle manner, and the most anxious pups were eating out of her hand and doing tricks at her request within the one visit. Changing the behavior of the humans in the household will take a bit longer, but we expect, with consistency of our new system, to be able to improve the behavior of the pack.
Gina is a real animal lover and also a nurse. She is extremely responsible and devoted to the pets. She has a beautiful German Shepherd of her own.
Very conscientious provider on both aspects health and well being. Very good and honest feedback. True animal person and great location as well. Luis Perez
Shareen was a blessing. My Aunt went into a Senior Care Facility and her pets needed to be taken care of until the family found homes for them. Shareen took care of my Aunt's cats like they were her own and made the transition for them so much easier. They loved her. Any problems that came up, Shareen took care of them. She took care of them for 7 weeks and helped find homes for them. This was a very difficult situation but Shareen's skills as a pet sitter and her love of animals made it work. We could not have done it without her.

This was my first time using Kelzey's Affordable Animal Care, and it will not be my last. Kelzey went above and beyond to ensure that my 3 dogs were safe, exercised and well-loved while I was away. She spent a great deal of time with them and kept in frequent contact with me, through text messages and pictures, while I was away. It was great to see, first hand, that my dogs were happy and comfortable. Kelsey took the time before my trip to meet with me and my dogs so we where both able to ask and answer each other's questions. She was very thorough and her love for animals was readily apparent. I felt comfortable with her very quickly, and my dogs did too! Upon arrival home, the dogs were relaxed and the house was in order. I had no messes or crazy stressed dogs to deal with. It was such a relief to come home like that! I would highly recommend Kelzey to anyone who loves their animals, hates to leave them and is in need of someone wonderful and highly skilled to love and care for your furry family member. - J.

It's been relief speaking with Mr. Cohen. He is very quick to respond, direct, knowledgeable, and compationate. Made me realize maybe the most special part of the family can change bad behavior also the family lol. Dogs bark b/c they are dogs. Wish I could let every one know how it turns out down the road-- Wouldn't hesitate to hire Corey Cohen for any baby that's having issues.
I have a terrier that had become aggressive whenever new people come into the house and was difficult on a walk when other dogs are around. Gwenevere was excellent in helping me manage the behavior and teach me what to do to get control. Things are much better and I am so thankful for her assistance. I look forward to continuing the training.
Dawn at The Pup Tent contacted me quickly regarding training my dog. She offered several options and customized the training to our specific needs. The facility is very clean, and she goes above and beyond to ensure the safety, security, health and comfort if the dogs in her care. Dawn provided regular updates on our dog's progress, and we were amazed at the positive change in our dog's behaviors. Great service. Ethical business. Very successful experience!

Pete has made great progress with our German Shepherd puppy, Jude, with only a few lessons. She had many behavioral issues and he is very patient, gentle and thorough with his instructions. Our puppy really responds to his method of training without adding any stress or negativity. I would highly recommend Pete Bayo to any dog owner for not only behavioral issues, but also for everyday training to make their dog a pleasure to be with.
