Jackie did an amazing job. More importantly, my dogs adored her! She obviously knows and loves dogs. )the cat loved her too.)
We were going out of town for two days and provided detailed guidelines for taking care of our Abyssinian cat. Kat took care of everything nicely, and went above and beyond by sending regular updates about the cat and the house. She kept everything clean, and even sent photos of the cat during each visit.
Kevin worked with our rescue Golden mix during a board/train session. The program was explained in detail during our first meeting with Kevin and we were able to express our needs and expectations. Our dog was very well cared for and we could immediately see that he was calmer and had learned quite a few good manners at the end of the 2 weeks. We were also given a thorough walk thru of all that they did during the training sessions and a DVD to take with us for continued reinforcement. We feel very comfortable boarding our dog with Kevin when we need to be away. The facilities are very large, well kept and our dog loved it there!
My boyfriend and I adopted a 6 week old pit bull named Huck in November 2013 the very first night we brought him home to feed him, I leaned down to pet him and he immediately starting growling. We tried to work with him ourselves but his food aggression started escalating as he got older and he also started being very aggressive towards us and family before he was 4 mo. Old. Our vet at the time told us that he needed to be neutered ASAP. So after we did that, we expected him to be more calm and less aggressive. Nothing really changed except he became more aggressive to the point where he would never let us give him a bath, clip his nails, being at the vet, pet him while he was eating or had any kind of bones to chew on, putting a collar on him, getting close to him and trying to touch his face. He would lash out at us if we did any of those things. It broke my heart more than anyone could understand because I was always so loving and affectionate towards my other dogs and the fact that I couldn't even love on my dog just ate me up. I became very scared of him and anytime he growled at me which was daily, I just left him alone. Me and my boyfriend have taken him to a few dog trainers in the past but we were turned away because they said he was too agressive and he should probably be put down. We even were recommended to go see a (Dog Phychiatrist) so he could be put on meds forever to help him be obedient. When I found out how much that was, it was insanely amount of money that we just couldn't afford. I was actually starting to consider to have him euthanized because so many people have told us that he is just to dangerous. I felt so alone and I just didn't want to be scared of my own dog anymore. My final attempt to get him help was actually on thumbtack. I listed my needs for a dog trainer and explained how agressive he was and expected to get no reply back from anyone because of his behavior. But then within 5 minutes of me posting my request, Christie said that she could help us. My boyfriend and I were kind of skeptical about it at first cause we didn't think she fully understood his condition and that maybe she just turn us away like all the others. But she explained to me that dealing with agressive breeds was actually her specialty which made me feel a lot better. On His very first day there of training he acted up pretty bad and Christie told that Huck needed to stay there for a while so she could work one on one with him without us being around. It was the hardest decision I ever had to make at that point but we decided to leave him there. It was very hard on us but we would have rather had to say goodbye for a little than have to say goodbye to him forever. Christie made us feel better by sending us emails and pictures almost daily about Huck's progress. We were finally able to bring him home 3 months later and we could not be more pleased with his behavior right now. I can finally say that we are able to put Huck's collar on him, clip his nails, and my most favorite part of all, he finally let's us love all over him and get close and touch his face. We know that he still has a long way to go, but he has made so much progress and we are so thankful from the bottom of our hearts for Christie. She is absolutely amazing with all of the dogs. You can really tell that she is genuine and really cares about what she does. We are learning so much from her and Ms.Jessica. That is why we drive 3 hours to see her for Class every Saturday morning from Houston.
Shani was great from start to finish! The meet and greet was a breeze (my cat actually liked her!), and I felt totally comfortable leaving my cat in her care while I was away. Every time she came over, I received updates and pictures of my fur baby. Shani provided all the services I needed, and for a great value. She was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I would highly recommend ATX Super Sitters for anyone who needs a pet sitter!
I love Austin Dog Zone! My dog, a Basenji named Loki, has some anxiety issues. After adopting him for the local shelter, it soon became apparent that I would need some help. He was scared of everything: dogs, people, noises, and even things I couldn't see or hear. I turned to Austin Dog Zone for help with this, especially his on-leash reactivity. The moment we met trainer Caitlin Lane I was impressed, she obviously knew what she was doing. Over the course of four private lessons at my home she taught me everything I needed to know to help Loki with his anxiety. 2 and a half years later and Loki and I can go to the park and meet other people and dogs worry-free! I genuinely believe Caitlin is the best dog trainer in Austin. She's naturally good with dogs, she's extremely knowledgeable (I've never had a question that she couldn't answer), and she's infinitely patient. I really like that she focuses not only on training the dogs, but on teaching the owner what they need to progress without her. I've only met fellow ADZ trainer Reed Morgan once, but after talking with her I was very confident she was of similar caliber. Megan Sartori came on board after I moved to Dallas, but I have no doubts she's great. Finally, Laura Neiheisel is always friendly, helpful, and quick to respond over email. I know she does a ton of work behind the scenes, but in addition to that she's a fantastic liaison for the company. To sum up, Caitlin and ADZ have had a lasting impact on my life and the life of my dog. I'm so grateful for all their help!
I took my 17 pound cat in to be washed and groomed because I can't do it by myself. Adrianna was very nice and after filling out the necessary paperwork she got to my baby right away. The store itself isn't very large - I actually drove right past it while trying to find it for the first time - but it gets the job done and it is a friendly environment. My cat is extremely fluffy, so we opted to just shave her belly so she wouldn't be dragging her hair everywhere. This part is fine, but we also trimmed her backend and that part wasn't quite as cleanly done as I would have liked. Once I got her home, I was still pulling out clumps of hair that had been shaved/trimmed but not brushed out, however, I'm just going to blame this on how extremely fluffy she is. Other than those things, it was a great experience and I thought Adrianna handled my pet very well. I'll definitely go back when the time comes!
Samantha and Julie were great! We contacted Premier Pet TLC as the first on our list of possible sitters and we didn't have to look any further! From our first meet & greet, Samantha went out of her way to gain the trust of our loving fur babies. We had them come twice a day to walk our dog, change litter, and feed everybody, and stay overnight for 4 nights so our animals wouldn't get lonely. Samantha went above and beyond with our youngest cat, Toby, who has confidence issues. By the end of her stay, our normally very shy boy was coming out of his safe place to investigate and show her some love at dinner time. Their online portal is fantastic to use and makes it easy to schedule future visits. Through the portal, we were sent progress reports after each visit, which included photos and updates on how everybody was doing. We even got special Mother's Day greeting photos from each of our adorable pets! We loved Premier Pet TLC so much, that it was a joy to accept Samantha's offer for a behavioral session with Toby to help work on his kitty confidence, and we very much look forward to it. We will now always recommend Premier Pet TLC to anybody who asks, and if we could give an even higher rating we absolutely would. If you're looking for a caring sitter to take care of your pets while you're away, there is no better choice!
We boarded our dog there while we went on vacation. They sent us photos letting us know our dog was safe.
Just an FYI for anyone seriously considering htraining / boarding for their dog.... Jennifer came highly recommended to me by several people in my neighborhood/community when I desperately needed help with a foster Shepard that had aggression and other behavioral issues. Thank God I took their advice. I cannot speak highly enough about Jennifer as a person, let alone her ability to read, understand, and communicate with an animal. It’s truly a God given gift. I gave her virtually zero information about this dog, yet She spotted several behavioral tendencies within two minutes of meeting the dog that were scary accurate. I left him with her for 3 weeks and picked up a totally different dog. Unbelievable! Her ability (and patience) to train me how to reinforce it all may have been her hardest part of the training :) With Jennifer’s help, I actually ended up adopting the Shepard and he is the best dog I’ve ever had. He goes EVERYWHERE with me and is happy, balanced, confident and obedient. All signs of aggression, jumping, pulling, nipping, destructive behaviors, leash or barrier frustration; food aggression, and territoriaI issues were gone. GONE! I was afraid to walk him or let people greet him before. Now I have zero fear of his reaction in any situation. All he needed was guidance and structure from me to be comfortable and looks to me for direction rather than reacting on his own. I know I have a leash, somewhere... haven’t used it in so long I can’t remember where it is. Just thought people should know that there is a TRUE dog whisperer in our own back yard. I can speak of my experience, and name at least a dozen other families that have had the exact same experience and level of success with their dogs thanks to Jennifer - I love having the four legged companion I’ve always wanted and thanks to her talents, my dog is my best friend and biggest source of joy rather than a source of stress or worry. THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Cindy of Meghan's Treasures Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver for my family and our two dogs. We had previously boarded our animals when we traveled, which was a bit expensive and also caused anxiety for our dogs. We decided to give Cindy and her service a try and is has been fantastic. The dogs love her and they get stay in the comfort of their own home while we are gone. She comes to feed them, let them out to potty, and interact with them three times per day and it is still cheaper than boarding them and they have far less separation anxiety now. I highly recommend Cindy.She is the best!
I've worked with Becca for almost a year. I started as a volunteer under her supervision, and I began fostering a service dog in training (4 month old lab puppy) shortly thereafter. I've attended several of her classes and participated in service dog specific training with my foster dog puppy. Her methods are totally volitional, which was a new concept for me for training a dog, and I was amazed to see the results. There was nothing but positive reinforcement and an overabundant desire to educate her students so that they would get visible results. Becca always clearly communicated the lesson, outlined the steps, the goal of the exercise, and assisted her students personally when they struggled with either their dog or the concept. She is extremely patient, an effective speaker, provides awesome illustrative examples of the topic, and writes notes for those to practice at home. She is clearly passionate about her work and dedicated to dog owners and their dogs. I highly recommend Becca for assessments, training of all kinds, and boarding services. She is truly a dog lover and understands our four-legged friends more than I could hope to.
Holiday Pet Hotel was the best place I have found for boarding my babies. They are clean and affordable and took care of my baby with lots of LOVE! I would highly recommend them.
Amanda is the best groomer I have ever had for my terrier mix dog. She knows how to bring out the best look for each breed. Also she is an experienced and certified cat groomer.
I do cat sitting, food and medications. I will make sure your cat gets proper care while you are away from home.
My focus is on mid-day dog walks and pet sitting. Daily visits consist of 30-minutes walks for your pet to stretch their legs and have a potty break. Perfect for the new puppy who is being crate trained and needs to be let out during the day. Pet sitting for those who want a weekend getaway or extended vacation with up to three visits per day. Although my primary care is for dogs and cats, I also care for fish, birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, and gerbils.
Established in 2006 we offer dog boarding, daycare, and socialization at our homestead facility located 12 minutes Northeast of the airport on the outskirts of Austin, Texas. Our 5 shaded yards and 2 climate controlled kennel rooms sit adjacent to our home on 1.3 acres that backs up to the Colorado River. Dogs spend most of their time outdoors playing in compatible groups and take breaks indoors when the weather is undesirable and sleep in the kennel rooms at night. We are family-owned and operated, reasonably priced and our guest dogs love it here. Give us a call or email to set up a tour or reservation. Happy Tails, Annie Melvin/Owner
