I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

Peter has been helping train my very domineering rescue pup. He has been nothing short of amazing!!! He is patient and kind and takes his time with each session. Our dog is stubborn and aggressive towards men, week by week I have been seeing changes in our dogs behavior. I am surprised at how quickly he picks things up all in great part to Peter. I look forward to the changes that we will see in appointments to come. I would 100% recommended Peter if you are in need of a dog trainer.

Theresa is doing great job on training my dog. She really loves dog. I can tell that she is fully engaged in training dogs. She treats dog as her little baby. I am very glad to have Theresa as my dog's trainer. She is patient and responsible. Both of I and my dog have learned a lot from her. Sprite learned to sit, down, and leave things. She becomes a polite puppy and starts to listen to my instruction. Although sometimes she is still a little bit hard to control, she had learned more that I have expected. I would like to keep touch with Theresa and let her teach Sprite more lessons. I am very appreciate for what Theresa have done.

John is very good at what he does. After about 10 minutes with our 5 month old golden retriever there was a remarkable change in the dogs attitude. John has a tremendous amount of patients, he talks calmly and softly to our pup and has him eating out of his hand and eager to do whatever John asks. Our biggest problem is we don't spend enough time with our "homework " and the dog suffers because of us, not John. He is helpful, doesn't mind phone calls, always willing to answer questions, and make recommendations. He even has handouts so you don't forget what to do. My husband and I would recommend John to anyone who is looking for help with training their dog.

My experience with Sandy and the Pawsitive Experience was outstanding. The first thing I liked and appreciated was Sandy’s approach to assessing my situation. After getting acquainted with our dog and what I had hoped to accomplish with the dog training lessons, Sandy tailored a program to our needs and didn’t try to heap unnecessary add-ons to my program. Once the lessons began, the thing that stood out was Sandy’s attention, not only to our dog, but also to my family (and children, in particular). Sandy took the time during each lesson to integrate my young children into the lessons so that they could get comfortable around our dog and understand that the dog was young and needed time to grow up just as they do. My best endorsement of Sandy is to say that because of her help, we absolutely love having a dog as part of our family and our dog loves being part of our family. If you want a friendly, knowledgeable and professional dog trainer, give Sandy a call.

I adopted my 2 year old dog Kayla only 3 months ago and Mike, along with help from his 2 wonderful dogs, has helped us reach several milestones: teaching her to get in the car, introducing her to the dog park experience, learning to walk on the leash, and most importantly, building up my confidence so I can help Kayla build up hers. I highly recommend his services.

John has an objective eye and vast knowledge for training any and all dog types. He truly understands the relationship between a dog and their owner and during training he provides timely and constructive feedback. John helped both myself and my husband be more aware of our body language and how our mannerisms set the tone with how our dog reacts and empowered us to be the "alpha" dog so to speak in order to have a well balanced dog. Without hesitation we would recommend John as a qualified trainer. Beth and Scott D.

When first calling, the process was made really simple and all questions I had were answered and put me at ease. The fees/registration for classes is very competitive as I looked around at different places. Having gone there for Puppy classes, I was a bit skeptical at first. Not anymore - Not only do I love the facilty but our trainer Jenn is amazing. I have also signed Drago up for Obedience thru Champion with Jenn and cannot wait to start. Would definitely recommend ALL that have animals to check Champion Kennels out!!!!!

We were in search of a new dog walker to help us with our 2 year old golden. We never expected to meet such a reliable and professional person as Jess. She brings a lot to the table with her many years of experience working with animals. Our dog absolutely loves her (he rolled onto his back within minutes of meeting her which is not typical of him at all!). I would highly recommend Jess to anyone looking for someone passionate about helping owners and their animals.

No bones about it. Chelsea is the pack leader. She trains dogs without treats & without the use of E-collares. I was blown away when on our second lesson she came into my house of 5 dogs & within 10 minutes all my bone heads were sitting down together QUIETLY and looking up at us. I would have never thought it possible never-ending in just 10 minutes. Then she proceeded to bring her service dog into my house without my dogs ever meeting him. They did not make a peep & sat to meet him. It was like the Twilight Zone. This can't be my dogs!@#? As dog parents, we tent to let a lot slip. We are not in control. We are not being the "PACK LEADER " This is hard for us but it is also confusing for our dog's. They have to know who is the boss. Chelsea will teach you that. Just remember, she can teach you the way, but you must become the "PACK LEADER " she can not do it for you. She will always be by your side but it is up to you to guide your dog down that path. Chelsea is the only person I would trust to do that with me.

Michelle is absolutely terrific at what she does. My husband and I were in our late 50's when we got a puppy and thought we are crazy so we hired Michelle to work with us at our home. It was the best experience. My dog Bailee is the most well behaved dog. I can take her anywhere with me, to anyone's house and she is extremely well behaved. I feel that we owe all of this to Michelle. I would never give a second thought in recommending Michelle. She was a fantastic dog trainer and you can tell that she loves doing what she does.

Dina has taken wonderful care of my dog Kirby for years. Taking care of animals is not just a job for Dina - it's her passion. Her love for the pets in her care is so obvious. If you want someone who will care for your pet as though it were her own, contact Dina. She's the best!

I love to walk your dog; it's almost no work for me because I really like it. I had the chance to walk dogs for my friends. I took care of several dogs of friends and relatives. I also had a dog myself for a few years. I have worked on a dog rescue farm in Mexico, and now I am actually taking care of a lovely dog in Cap Cod. I also have been a Buddhist monk for over ten years, so I could teach your dog how to meditate, just kidding. It would be nice to walk your dog!
