John seems to know what he is doing about training a puppy.
From the first home visit "meet and greet" to establish a baseline, through the personalized (hour plus every time) training sessions, and continuous follow up advice, we received high-quality, professional, and - most important - effective means to get ourselves and our dog better aligned. Make no mistake: "Thank Dog! Training" is not a quick-fix, single session solution. It absolutely requires considerable commitment and consistency of everyone in the immediate home of the dog. And that is not easy. But we and our dog are far healthier frames of mind and expectations now.
We took both our dogs to training. They both are doing much better and are much easier to manage. It has really made our house calmer and the dogs continue to progress and behave much better. We would highly recommend the two week program.
I've been using Danielle's dog walking service since I moved here last July. Knowing Danielle (or her Mom) are visiting with my dog, Kloe, while I'm at work gives me great peace of mind. When I get into a pinch and can't get home from work right away, Danielle is just a "text" message away, and she's always been able to go back to the house to bring Kloe out for another break. Danielle is a natural animal lover - it's clearly her passion, which makes her the kind of person that I want watching my little Kloe. I would highly recommend Danielle and Music City Pet Sitting.
Ali takes care of our dogs when we go on vacation. She feeds them and walks them every day plays with them to make sure they aren't too lonely without us. She is easy to communicate with and responds very quickly to our questions. Since hiring Ali to care for our precious babies, we haven't hired anyone else.
Dan and I met while volunteering together at Midde TN Boxer Rescue. His passion for dogs is evident from the moment you meet him. He genuinely enjoys walking, playing and giving love to the dogs he helps and owns! He often fosters dogs from MTBR and helps them to learn house manners. He assesses the dogs interaction with children, cats and other dogs in the home. It takes a great deal of patience, understanding, & compassion . Your pet will definitely enjoy any time it has with Dan!
I have been taking care of pets for many years and take great pride in my job. I am also Pet First Aid Certified (updated 2014).
I love dogs and have owned several dog most of my life. I am responsible and reliable. Your pets will be in good hands while you are away. Enjoy your trip with piece of mind.
Angie has nearly nipped some serious behavior in the bud. I doubt we would have had that success in a group class. Excellent teacher for my wife and me. Highly recommend her!
My husband and I are looking for any kind of odd jobs that you may have. Whether it might be some type of construction or lawn care maintenance, handyman need or some type of help with a pet sitting, dog walking, housecleaning, paying bills for you, shopping or any type of help at all you may need. No job is too big or small.
Will always provide your pet with the best care.
Tatiana is wonderful! She truly has a passion for animals and has taken care of and loved on our fur babies many times. She's great with our two giant dogs (70 and 60 lbs) and our cat. My husband and I love that she has so much experience at the vet and we can always count on her professional knowledge of what's going on if we are noticing any certain symptoms our animals are experiencing. I would highly recommend her. She's responsible, understands animal behavior, and most importantly our animals love her!
Lee Ann, is an incredible person. I have used her while on vacation and for general daily walking of my dog. She's honest, trustworthy, and extremely dependable. She has a real connection with my dog, you can see it when they greet each other. I have owned dogs for 20 years and I've never found somebody more reliable,fair and committed then Lee Ann and I so appreciate her professionalism.
Nikki's understanding of animal behavior is unimaginable, and her ability to teach people how to have a more enjoyable relationship with their dog is far beyond comprehension. My wife and I had Nikki come out to our home and teach us how to work with our German Shepherd puppy, Veda. Nikki's lessons are straight to the point, and the results are evident immediately. She is a huge proponent of not "over commanding" your dog. To hear it from Nikki, she'd tell you that you shouldn't have to constantly tell your dog what to do (or what NOT to do)...your dog should know what is expected and just do it without a command. To alot of people that sounds daunting, if not laughable, as a training method. You can laugh or shrug off that line of thinking if you want, but we're here to tell you that it works! Dog dragging you down the street on your "walk"? Nikki will fix it! Dog jumping at the door to greet visitors? Nikki will fix it! Ever feel like you're not the one in charge? Nikki will fix it! Quit reading the Leerburg site wondering about prong collars. Quit wasting your hard earned money at Petsmart and Petco on their clicker classes where you make the funny noises to distract the dog from what it's focusing on. Call Nikki. Tell her what's going on with your pet. Setup an appointment, and start enjoying your relationship with your pet (and other humans in the house) again. Her abilities with animals and their owners will change the dynamic in your house in a very short period of time. It does cost a little bit more than those other training classes...but the results are far better in our opinion.
I actually care about what I'm doing.
