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.
He did a really great job with my Australian cattle dog. I would recommend him to anybody and I've used a different puppy trainer at Dog and Kat in Nashville. He's significantly better. You really should choose him.
Travis did a wonderful job with our 13 month old German Pinscher Anabel. She now has house manners and walks without tugging when we go out for walks. During her training, he updated us with photos and information on how her training was progressing. When Travis return Anabel, he gave us a lesson on how to continue reinforcing all that he had taught her and a video of her training for reference. We highly recommend Travis for anyone who is looking for knowledgeable dog trainer.
We are very thankful for Noelle/Thank Dog! She has been fantastic in helping train us (including my 13 year old daughter) as we attempt to train our new puppy ;-). Noelle has a peaceful, accommodating and patient presence and has surpassed my expectations in every single way. Both my 8 yr old and 4 month old dogs respond incredibly well to Noelle and her training "style/method". Noelle has done a wonderful job of listening to our concerns and desires in regards to training our puppy and has been extremely accommodating in creating a personalized plan that meets our family's specific goals and needs. Both of our dogs have also borded with Noelle which is honestly icing on an already very sweet cake...we have been able to travel knowing they are in Noelle's excellent, compassionate, expert care. It's hard to put a price tag on peace of mind and we are beyond grateful that we have not only found the very best dog trainer for us and our immediate needs in navigating the crazy challenging puppy phase but also someone that I am confident will be the "go to" resource in any/all future training needs along with providing the perfect home away from home for my dogs whenever travel.

Cindy reestablished my trust that I do know how to be a good dog owner😊🐕😚
I hired John Miller to come to my home to train my 8 month old golden retriever on a few obedience commands and to resolve a couple of issues such as jumping and pulling on the leash when we would go for a walk. I definitely got the results that I was looking for. John's knowledge combined with his patient and friendly personality would make a great choice for anyone looking to hire a dog trainer.
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!
Bobby has done such a great job with our Doberman puppy! She's patient, consistent and our puppy loves working with and learning from her. The reason we chose her to train our pup is because she was the only dog trainer we talked to who was consultative and really listened to our wants and needs. All of the other trainers were more interested in telling us how great they were and didn't seem to care about our dog. So, we knew that if she was so kind with us, she'd do a great with our fur kid! I would highly recommend her!!!!
I have attended both Level 1 Basic Obedience and Level 2 Advanced Obedience classes with my pup Remy. Both classes push the dog and trainer to excel under Charlotte's guidance. She gives direct feedback catered to your specific situation and dog, with small realistic goals to set you up for success. I have enjoyed her classes immensely, and look forward to attending more in the future!
Trish and Kim have exceeded my pet care expectations! From day one I could tell that they were going to treat and care for my dog as if he were their own. They have been timely, provided feedback during the walk, and even offered to help work with my dog on his leash-walking struggles (i.e. pulling and squirrel obsession). I would recommend Good Mojo Pet Care to anyone and everyone who loves their pet and wants to provide them with the best!
Hi, Pupsqueak Dog Care was great. Took great of my pup while I was in hospital and walked my dog twice a day, without fail, for several months when I got home. My dog just loved her and she loved my dog.
Nathan did an awesome job training our 7 month German shepherd Kaizer! My husband and I left him with Nathan for just under 2 weeks to teach Kaizer the basics. We had both tried teaching him a few things but we weren't very successful so we had a puppy that pretty much ran the house. We now have a dog who will sit, lay down, heel, and come when called. He will also stay in the place we tell him to lay down until we say he can get up! I highly recommend Allegiance K9!!
No Worries Pet Sitting is the best. Their company name says it all! You can truly trust them with your pet(s) and have no worries at all. They have done sitting for me many times and I have always come home to happy dogs! They truly fall in love with your pet and treat them like their own! I highly recommend calling them for all your pet needs!
Anna was wonderful in every aspect. She was great with all three of my pets - parrot, cat and dog. She was accomodating and visited an extra time just because she was in the area! I feel confident that I am able to leave them in her care whenever I need to go out of town.
Christy was my dog's sitter for over 7 years. I can honestly say that I have never found anyone that I trust more than her to watch my furbabies! She is absolutely amazing!!!
my dog Roscoe loves beth.when my dog first met bed my dog does not like just anybody he took up to her and her husband. when I come home all days that she's been here he's so happy
I hired Joseph to to watch me three dogs for three day. Two of them are big dogs and the other one is very hiper. He did an exceptional job with them and I could not be happier with his service.
I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with Libby at Publix for over two years. This past winter, we brought our Brussels Griffon, Annie, to the park for play time with Molly and Winston , who at the time were in Libby's care for the day. We also had one-on-one time with our Annie and Winston on separate occasions. Libby and I both share a love for dogs and I experienced her caring, love and respect for the dogs in her care upfront and personal you might say. Libby is my dog whisperer. She is my go-to person for all things dog. She helped us so very much when our 12 year old Brussels, Briley, health was failing with careful suggestions. Not only does she care for the animals in her care and custody, she has a respect for the family members and what their values are. Libby would be the one person I would trust with our Annie with whether it would be at our home, at her home, or out on adventures. She is Nashville's best kept secret for dog sitting and dog walking...but not for long. Laura M
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 work at a job that has crazy hours and thanks to Tiffany Exum I am able to get things done and feel like I have been home the whole time. She pretty much takes care of my household. Cleans laundry mail kids the whole thing. If I have a load of laundry ready to go in, it's a great feeling when it's already folded when you get home. One time I was gone overnight and the dog got loose and was hit by a car. My kids called Tiffany Exum to try to help him and she did, came over with her doggy first aid kit and he his fine to this day thanks to Tiffany Exum. Not only is the dog ok but we are all better off as we are able to spend more family quality time. She foresees things and is quick to jump at the task at hand
