I have a small breed dog and have had a difficult time finding a trainer. The moment I talked to Net's Happy Pets I knew she had the skill set to help me with my sweet little guy. She came to our home and I instantly felt like I had finally found someone knowledgeable, kind, non judgemental, and truly has a love of animals.Jun 19, 2017Verified
She has done an excellent job with my two pups. After only a couple lessons they are more responsive to us. She always checks up with us to see how their progress is going in between appointments. I definitely recommend Net's Happy Pets!Jul 13, 2017Verified
I love Lynette.... most importantly my dogs did too. She's caring and compassionate towards all animals. She took great care of my babies. She's amazing with special needs and seniors. You truly could not ask for a better pet sitter. I have a hard time going off and leaving mine but she always kept me updated and sent pictures to reassure me they were fine. I was heartbroken when she moved. She is the best!!!Nov 17, 2016
We unexpectedly had a week off of work and decided to take an off the cuff vacation but need someone to take care of our kitty. Lynette responded to my request quickly and we met the next day. She graciously also agreed to water our patio plants which would have died in this Texas summer. Lynette sent me pictures of my girl Sunshine and took excellent care of her. We will definitely be hiring her again for our next adventure! Thank you Lynette! Vicki PageJul 19, 2019Verified
Net was punctual for our first meeting, spent time learning about my dogs and cat, their personality, habits, and the care I wanted for them. Though they didn't "tell" me anything, they were happy and relaxed when I returned home. Net kept in contact with me before, during and after my trip.Oct 23, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have standard pricing. Training pricing is based on location and need. I have pricing for half hour long sessions and hour long sessions and discounts for booking multiple sessions at once. The age of the dog generally dictates which length of session will work best. Most training requires at least 5 sessions although many need 10. As well, 10 sessions allows us to address anything else that pops up or to train and learn other things. I have a similar pricing system for pet sitting. Pricing is based on location and number of pets/duties required, and I have discounts for those that need multiple visits in one day.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with basic or behavioral training needs, I prefer to sit down with the customer and pet to get a feel of what their individual needs and tastes are. It's important to fully understand the customer's needs and the pet's personality along with determining what the true reason behind each behavior. When working with pet/house sitting customers, I like to sit down and discuss with them their normal routine as well as talk about any health or behavioral concerns they have for their pets while they're away.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 25+ yrs experience working with pets in a professional environment. I graduated in 2000 from NCTC with an Associates Degree in Equine Science along with a certificate in training and breeding. I've working in vet clinics, for animal services, and was a Pet Trainer 2 for PetSmart for 4 years.
