Lee was awesome!!! She was on time for the appoinment, couteous, friendly, well spoken, and really understood the dynamics between my 3 dogs. She taught me several techniques that I could use to treat some of my canines more unfavorable habits. All in all she was a well rounded trainer with a profound knowledge of animal behaviors. I would highly reccomendation her.
I hired Cassidy a few weeks ago to help train 2 of my dogs. One was a puppy and one was 10 years old. Both had become so irritating to deal with and I was in way over my head. I heard about Cassidy from 2 of my friends who both used her so I gave her a call. Within an hour she had returned my call. I knew nothing about training and was more than pleased with how patient she was with me. After everything I had heard and read from my friends and her facebook, I decided to hire her. We did a 3 week board and train with both dogs. I received pictures and calls everyday and was excited when they were ready to come home. When she brought them home, it was incredible just how much they responded to her and how well they were behaving. She showed me what they learned and how to keep them in good behavior. It was hard to get the hang of it at first and they didnt want to listen to me. She was still very patient and showed me how to show them that I knew how to control them too. She made sure that I understood the importance of keeping up with their training and not to be discouraged if I had problems in the beginning. Here, a week later, I would be lying if I said I didnt have to change my ways too. She has been my #1 go to everyday. I have had so many questions. But as the time went on, everything she told me made so much sense. I have learned from her as well as my dogs and our lives have completely changed for the better. I am looking forward to sending my dogs back to learn more very soon. Cassidy is professional, clear and a great trainer! I dont think she charges enough for what she does and how much time she invests in each dog. I would highly recommend her and will always carry her cards with me to pass out.
We are so happy with the results from our 2 week training for our dogs. Justin absolutely changed our dogs behavior. We can take them for walks at ease not worried if they will run away, try to fight, or go crazy somehow. We walk with them by our side anywhere without a leash and they behave amazing now
Matt is very personable and professional. He readily connects with dogs and gets a good sense of their temperament. My dog is overjoyed when he arrives. I greatly appreciate Matt's receptivity and flexibility. He brings much more to my dog's situation than just getting walked. Matt's intuitive, communicates his observations, has good ideas, and effectively shapes positive behavior.
Tricia was a blessing training our new dog. We found a stray tied to a lamp post in our neighborhood. We had to help the dog so we took him in. He had been abused and Tricia help us. When we first go Bear he was very frightened and peed in the house. After her instructions, which we carried out to a T, he became an excellent dog. It took some work but it was well worth it. I would use Tricia again for any of my animal training or behavior needs. She also does boarding which I will use in the future.
I believe we are some of Mary's first clients for Pet sitting. We have used her services for 3 years and have already booked into 2016. Mary does a great job! She treats our 3 cats as if they were her own. They usually hide when visitors come, but to them Mary is family and they are happy to see her. I know my pets are well taken care of while I'm away. Mary leaves detailed notes about her visits which is always fun to read when we get back. Mary also cleans or changes litter the boxes, feeds and waters our pets and takes time to play with our pets. Other things Mary does for us, sweeps up stray kitty litter, takes trash to street on trash day. Picks up mail from mail box. Mary is trustworthy and loyal, I have no worries, in fact.. we gave Mary a key to the house and she still has it! Since we use Mary's services several times a year it was easier to have her keep a key. You can't go wrong with Mary! She will treat your pets like family and your home will be looked after too!
Taryn is a great gal that loves horses and animals altogether! She has her own dog that is well trained and mannered. No matter what task is performed, she will do the best of her ability! Good job!
Rebecca has come to my home many times to take care of my black lab. She is punctual, respectful, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and fantastic with my senior dog who has cancer. I trust Rebecca to properly give all required meds plus a lot of extra hugs and kisses. She even volunteered to walk my baby without me asking her to -- she goes the extra mile because she loves the animals. And I love the photos she sends (again, on her own initiative). I just can't say enough good things about Rebecca and how great she is with both animals and people!
Nancy's love for animals shows in her work. We have used her many times for pet sitting, and have been very satisfied with her services. If you are looking for someone to care for your animals and give them the attention they need without worry, Nancy is perfect!
Sherry does an awesome job! I receive pictures and updates after each walk. I also own a cat and requested that she just tell him, "hi" when she drops Scout back off. She sends pictures of him as well, which always brightens my day and makes me smile. Sherry also gives great advice and leaves us information and supplies that she thinks we could use. I work nearby and noticed her walking Scout one day....I saw her pet him affectionately several times and was communicating with him. You can tell she really loves animals. I am so happy we found her and wold highly recommend her!
Tammy has been walking our family dog for about 2 weeks now and Joshua(my dog) and I have grown to love Tammy. We are beginning to seeing improvements in our dog's behavior - he is more calm. I like that Tammy checks in with me after the walks and gives me highlights of their activities for the day. My experience with Tammy have been very pleasant and I am so happy to have found her services and she is someone that I can trust.
Vanessa Pet sat for me my baby Boy Gizmo. She was very attentive to him. Even though I had a lot of demands for her about my little sweetie, he was well taken care of. I would recommend her to everyone. She loves animals.
We highly recommend Terry. Our dog, Tango was a challenge for us, jumping and pulling on the leash, we couldn’t even have people over without her going crazy. We knew we need to call a trainer but most use either shock collars or treats and I wanted someone who could just understand my dog and show us how to train her without bribery or shocking her. So I saw Terrys website and called. Terry is excellent with Tango. He explained why she does the things she she does and gave us LOGICAL solutions for her behavior problems. Now we can enjoy Tango and not feel overwhelmed by her! Terry gave us a companion. My only regret is not calling him sooner!
I have been a canine behavior specialist in business since 1982. While much of my work currently is with working canines, I have begun to take on private clients here in Houston. My specialties are all forms of aggression, anxiety-related disorders and rescue dog integration issues. I see clients in their homes or for less severe issues such as socialization and obedience, I offer a reduced rate if customers come to me in the Hobby Airport area.
