We have gone from a puppy to a "teenage" service dog in training with Kristen. Her knowledge and patients is outstanding. Our rottie will one day be a certified service dog to my disabled veteran husband due to her diligence and expertise.
Joe Steen has been wonderful with my initial experience at Lakeside Kennels. He has been very informative, honest, and patient with all the questions and anxiety I have in leaving my 3 year old dog to be trained. He is very flexible in offering a training program that best suits your needs. I have been amazed that he is always available by phone when needed. I'm very excited and look forward to my dog reaching her full potential.
The guys at K9 Good Manners were great. They spent a lot of time training my dog, and they spent an additional 2-3 weeks training him at no charge to ensure that he was properly trained.
I appreciate the diligent care, you have given my dogs. Your service is wonderful!
Mrs. Gina Elkins was an awesome dog sitter. I would recommend her to anyone.
Ginger is an honest, kind, professional. She is dedicated to making the pet training process a great experience for you and your pet. Ginger and I have been friends for many years and I know her to be intelligent, caring and devoted to her animals. Character like that cannot be faked and and I am certain you will be thrilled with your results.
Great trainer. Made it easy and fun for my dogs and I to learn proper techniques. Would definitely recommend
Cat trained both my pitbull and my shiba inu. My shiba use to be aggressive around food as well as new people in our house. Cat worked with us and now our shiba is a sweetie and our pit puppy is fully trained!!

I am so passionate about any animal and give them the care that I would want my dogs to receive. I also love children and have a ton of experience with them. I have been nannying practically my whole life. I am super sweet to the kids and make sure that they have fun.
I give pets the unconditional love they deserve. I will treat you pet as if it were my own.
I walk dogs, clean up after them, wash them and don't let them out of my sight. What makes this job so special to me is that I've had least of them myself.
Our Training Philosophy We offer step-by-step training which focus on each dog's drives and abilities in order to create a working relationship between the dog and owner. We do this by creating a fair, fun, and progressive training program in which both the owner and the dog grow together and form a deeper bond. Each dog is trained differently, as we do not subscribe to the "cookie-cutter" approach to training in which all dogs are trained alike. All dogs are different in their drives, temperament, age, experiences, breed, etc., and do not all respond to training in the same way. This is why we form our methods around what will work best for a certain dog and the handler team. Our training is fair for the dog as he learns new skills in a manner which is geared specifically for that dog. Dog training however, is not just teaching dogs. It is just as much people training!
I clean, organize, and minimize clutter in your home. I also groom dogs -- bathing, nails, fur cutting, and express anal glands.
I am willing to provide all sorts of pet care for your beloved animals! I can do simple tasks such as bringing your pets to a local park or trail to give them all the play and exercise that they need and deserve, feed and watch over them for long periods of time, and even stop by just to make sure that they're okay while you're away. I can also provide a bit more professional care such as bathing, nail trimming, and brushing (given that the animal is comfortable with these tasks, as some might require two people to trim nails or even bathe) as well as being able to give pets' medication they are prescribed. I have experience in working with different types of canines and felines alike. All thanks to my time spent on the weekends as a vet technician for Pawmetto Lifeline's Care-A-Van as well as from a previous job that revolved around the boarding of dogs and cats. I also have personal experience with bearded dragons and simple fish (ex: betta and goldfish). I am willing to work with all sorts of animals, provided I am given instructions on what exactly the owner would like me to do. My availability is on the following: Monday - Thursday: 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. Fridays: 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. (noon) Saturday and Sunday: unavailable (I apologize for any complications this causes.) Contact info: Phone: (Text only, please. Please provide why you're texting, and at least a first name that I can respond to you with.) E-mail: (I check my e-mail frequently throughout the day, so don't be surprised if you get a response back the same day.)
I love animals, especially dogs. I do several contract jobs for people, marketing, IT remote support, and social media marketing.
I have been an ER vet Tech for nine years and studied behavioral modification for seven years. One of the leading causes of canine abandonment is due to behavioral issues that with a little bit of work can be resolved. I want to help owners and their furry friends live a happy stress free life together.
