I'm very please with Sit Means Sit Dog Training in Belton, TX. The communication was excellent and I noticed results within one week of training with my dog Leo. The training is easy to learn and the group classes help my dog learn at a faster pace with the distraction of other dogs. I found that in targeting my dog's intelligence we have a stronger connection and we can both help each other. Robin has been amazing also, as have the other trainers! Thank you Sit Means Sit!
Christina came to our house twice a day to care for our three dogs. She by far exceeded my expectations! One of our older dogs can be grumpy and instead of saying "no, thank you," she made practice visits and spent extra time making him comfortable. It only took a day for him to come around and he quickly became excited to see her each visit. She also didn't just do the chores of pet sitting (feeding, let them out and refill water); she spent time each visit to love on them, took them on walks (or let them take her on walks, really), gave them treats, switched which lights were on each night and even cleaned our house before we came home! I can't recommend her enough!!
Stephanie is a wonderful person in general; and a great dog groomer! I took my Mother's dog Sadie to get her groomed by Stephanie; Sadie was perfectly groomed, and smelled lovely when I picked her up! I will definitely be taking Sadie back to K-9 kiddos in the future! I recommend K-9 kiddos to anyone living in the Lorena area!
They worked with us on what our specific needs were. They gave us feedback and tools to make our training with our dog more successful.

I have used Claudia on a few occasions to pet sit our 3 dogs. I have been extremely happy with her services. My pets are always happy and well taken care of by Claudia. I enjoy getting text messages from her to keep updated on our pets. Last year we had plans to go out of town for Christmas. It is a very busy time of year so I booked Claudia about a year in advance. She takes good care of the home and plants as well. I like having someone stay at the house especially during the holidays and I don't have to stop the mail delivery. She is honest and trustworthy. She arrives on time. I highly recommend Claudia for house/pet sitting.
I can take care of your dog while you are out of town with no worries. I love dogs! Please trust me to take care of your little four-legged family members.
I train young puppies and adolescent dogs in obedience commands, and the owners to continue training when they are alone with their pets.
I help you understand your canine companion so that you have long and happy life together. I offer dog obedience training at your home so that you don't have to try to train your dog with other distractions that can occur with big classes. I work with you and your dog one on one in order to maximize the training time.
I love what I do and I love the hearts of my dogs... If you're dog loves to swim I will take them swimming.. Play time is always fun time..
I have 25 acres of rolling hills that animals get to enjoy! If your animal is coming to stay with me for a mini vacation, I have two large areas that are fenced off for their protection.
I work with the dog owner and his/her dog to learn basic commands like sit, stay, come, down, heal, off, place, etc.
I offer basic obedience classes. All non-aggressive dogs are welcome. Six-week morning classes are held outside, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., from Mondays to Saturdays. Commands are heel, sit, (lay) down, place, and recall. There are no dog-to-dog or dog-to-people aggressive dogs in class. I charge $80.00 for 6-week group classes. I also do private lessons for basic obedience, $25.00 per private lesson if you come to me and $30.00 per private lesson if I travel to you. I provide limited behavior modification.
I have bred and trained horses and dogs for over 25 years. I am semi-retired, but I still need to work. I would love to work in a kennel or do stable cleaning and exercising and grooming your loved ones (dogs or horses) as needed.
For the Family 4-legged friend it is essential to evaluate the dog behavior in conjunction with the animal's environment and the realistic expectations of the owner/owners. Guard/K-9 training requires a different evaluation, as does guide or search/rescue training. In addition to training I also am intimately involved in rescue work in more than one country. I also work with wolf and wolf hybrid species. My first pet was an alligator that was to be put down (rescued & still living) and 4 White Shepherds. I use non GMO treats/food .I provide a thorough evaluation for free and should any behavioral difficulties appear in the future will re-educate at no charge. My primary focus is to unite in harmony our furry friends with our life style. Since I recently arrived on this site I am still in the midst of completing a more comprehensive profile. I also provide massage therapy.
We emphasize a family approach to helping our furry friends become a vital part of the family. I specialize in rehabilitation of behavior issues and integration.
I love dogs! I have 6 of my own: three German shepherds and three small dogs. I know how to handle both small and large breeds. I have grown up always having dogs in my house. My dogs are my babies, so I understand the importance of taking care of your dog.
