Christine has taught us effective methods to positively redirect our dog away from his undesirable behaviors. We would highly recommend her to anyone that needs help with training their dog.
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
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!!
My dogs are old but Carol handled them extremely well for the entire 10 days . I would highly recommend her
I hired Erin to watch my 2 dogs and cat a few months prior to my March vacation. Unfortunately, during that time my senior dog got sick. Erin and I communicated the whole time as I got diagnosis. Erin was prepared and experienced with caring for a diabetic dog. This made me feel comfortable hiring her. Sadly my senior dog got very sick and I had to euthanize her. During that time, prior to my vacation I cannot begin to explain how understanding and gracious Erin was. I went on vacation and Erin made it so easy. She put me at ease with updates daily and was very communicative. I will hire her again because I feel comfortable that I have hired a trustworthy pet loving person.
Judy was wonderful, timely and efficient. This was the first non-family pet sitter we have hired since in Pittsburgh. My dog was happy when we returned and all was well! I am going to refer her to others! Thanks thumbtack!
When our dog reached 7 years of age, we used Tracy to stop by, to walk and let our dog out for bathroom breaks, while we were working. Tracy is very caring, trustworthy and reliable. Tracy would stop by when we were home, and our dog would be excited to see her! I wouldn't hesitate to utilize Tracy's services again.
Darlene is a delight to work with. I was at first nervous about leaving my 2 pups. They are bigger dogs and love attention. But after meeting with her and her correspondence while we were away, all worries melted away. The dogs seem to love her her and she's very good with them. Highly recommended.
I’ve learned more at a couple of classes at Splash n Dash than in all the books I have read and 40 years of dog ownership. Agility training and Flyball have changed my dog Dougal from a frustrated and slightly destructive dog into a very happy and well behaved companion and established a special bond between us.
Fetch Pet Sitting looked after my Bulldog and 2 Kitty Cats while we took a 14 day vacation over the Christmas and New Year Holiday Season. I typically take my dog to a kennel however he is getting up there in years I and would have worried while away. Fetch set up an initial meeting in my home where the 2 sitters came and met my animals and got all the information they needed to take good care of my animals. I provided them with a key each, and on the day of my departure received a text message letting me know they would be there later on that day and to have a great vacation. During my vacation, I received a text from home giving me a quick update on the status. Which allowed me to really relax. Upon my return I found the animals content and happy. The house was left very tidy, the mail had been taken care of, and most of all my pets were all in great shape. In fact - I think they were a little disappointed when we walked through the door rather than the pet sitters - they were completely spoiled while I was away. I fully intend on using Fetch Pet Sitting again and would highly recommend this service to anyone who has pets. They were professional and very thorough, and they obviously have a deep affection for animals as demonstrated by how my pets were upon arrival home. I had the service come to my house 3 times a day - since I was gone for so long. I think the service was good value for money - I would have paid as much to Kennel my Dogs and pay a neighbors kid to look after my cats. Peace of mind - Priceless.
Based on the recommendation of my veterinarian, who knew Dayton, I contracted with him for 6 weeks of training for a 5 month old German Shepherd. He helped me understand the breed and worked with us as the pup learned basic commands. I was so pleased with my progress with the pup that I contracted for 6 more lessons and later recommended him to a friend who had just rescued a 2 year old greyhound. Dayton obviously loves and respects dogs. He has endless patience for the dog and the owner and is able to clearly explain and demonstrate the lesson being taught. He is very generous with his time and knowledge and he guarantees his training. He is prompt to respond to messages and is always available to address training problems or issues that might develop after the class is over.
Although our care time isn't until December, it has been a pleasure communicating and setting up our dog's stay with the proprietor!
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
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!
We are providing first-class dog and cat boarding, grooming, dog daycare, dog training, and veterinary care.
I am an 18-year old student from West Allegheny. I own a mini dachshund that is seven years old. I love it deeply, and I think we all could benefit from this position. You get a doggie walker and Bobo gains a new friend.
If you need a dog walker, I'm your man. I will walk, feed, and clean up after your dog. I offer reasonable fees and a friendly service.
I will be able to walk dogs during Friday evenings, from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm. I am also available during Saturday and Sunday morning, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
I would like to help you with your dog. If it's just a potty break while you're at work or a walk because you do not have the time to, I will be glad to help you out!
My Chef Station offers catering, private hands-on cooking parties for kids and adults as well as scheduled cooking classes. We have a large commercial kitchen and lovely intimate dining room great for showers and parties of 26 or less. We will work with you to create a menu, class or event that fits your style, taste, and budget.
I treat each pet as if they are my own. When I walk a dog, I take additional time to make sure they get what they need to make them happy. Whether it's sniffing longer in one place, running for a while, or playing in the yard, it's their time, and I want to do all that they need, so their owners have a balanced and happy pet when they come home. Additionally, if I am responsible to give a pet a meal or treats, I only feed them organic foods from USA/Canada.
