Jan came to my house. My dogs loved her. I was amazed. She took great care of both of them. Cleaned up so well you couldn't tell she was there. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to groom at their house.

I would highly recommend Amazing Paws for all your dog training needs. Anna helped us get through some behavioral issues with our dog. She explained things very clearly and answered all of our questions. She is very knowledgeable and has tons of experience. Our session with her left me feeling very confident about knowing how to work with our dog. I can't say enough good things about Amazing Paws and Anna. Her prices are more then reasonable and so worth it. If we have anymore issues I will definitely be calling her again and will recommend her to anyone I know with a dog.

I highly recommend Nikki Banfield for dog training; however, I think of her more as a "people trainer". She trains you to train your dog. Be prepared for constructive criticism. She is firm because she is so passionate about dogs. She does individual training first, then group training. She gives you all of the tools you need to have a well-trained dog. If you take the time, and use the tools, you will have that well-trained dog. She also does "group walks" on Saturday mornings. These give your dog the opportunity to learn how to interact properly with other dogs. You are always welcomed on the walks even after you are done with your training, and she continues to make herself available with any problems that may arise down the road. We trained our first Labrador retriever with her 18 years ago and currently use her for the lab we have now. We will continue to recommend her to all of our friends and anyone else who asks us who we used for dog training.

I am so glad I chose Corey. My first lesson taught me how to take my dog out for a walk without worrying she will pull me down. Corey is very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and obviously loves dogs.

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.

Chose Dog Gone Happy for Obedience training for our Husky. Christina did an amazing job and solved the problem we were having with chewing and counter surfing. During lessons Christina explained what we needed to do to maintain what she learned. Our Sapphire listens to commands on the first try and no longer pulls on walks. Life has gotten a lot easier. We recommend Christina highly.

    Gwenevere was professional and very affective with teaching our dog to stop acting aggressive to people and dogs he didn't know. He would lunge and bark and pull. It got so bad we stopped having people over. My wife had stopped walking him because his barking and pulling was so obnoxious and embarrassing. Gwenevere even fixed our house breaking issue. He no longer looks out the window and barks at everything he sees. WOW this was well worth the money. We now can have people over we can walk him and we can go back to loving him like we wanted, thanks Gwenevere

    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.

      Kelly thank you so much, great rate and my dogs and cat being with such a caring person is a relief. You always go above and beyond. Payed you to watch them walk&feed them and you did that plus gave the dogs a bath and brushed there coats was. So shiny and they loved the interaction.

We are going to be investing in her services to do some more in depth training on tricks in the very near future!!!!! She was really really great !!!! Well worth the money and then some!! -Terry and Susan !

      About

      I am a firm believer if you talk to your pets constantly, they will begin to understand your language. If the human is confident and consistant, a dog will have no questions about doing what is expected. I also believe that with positive reinforcement a dog will learn to feel pride in doing the right thing.

        My dog is good with other dogs outside the house, but is very territorial if my friends or brother bring over their dog. It's gets to the point where he starts growling and showing his teeth sometimes. He also might growl at the owners of the other dog briefly. He's almost or about a year old. Very easy going dog otherwise.
