Rona did an exceptional job of explaining to us where we needed to change ourselves to help our dog. She was very friendly, I knew immediately that she was the right fit for us because the dogs didn't freak out when she walked in. Watching how quickly the dogs responded to her really solidified for us how much our lives could be improved. Will definitely be calling her back as we progress through the training!

Taylor is a professional in every way. She came prepared for the problem and offered and demonstrated techniques that worked immediately. It was really an eye opener. Her confidence with and in the dogs made a world of difference in their behavior. We were having problems with our dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior towards other dogs. By the end of the session, we had both dogs inside the dog park, showing no aggression. She followed up with a written synopsis of the problem and steps to take for behavior change. I would highly recommend Taylor. She has a complete grasp of dogs and their behavior, and is not afraid to " think outside the box" to problem solve. She is a pleasure to work with, and dogs respond very positively to her!

Carrie was wonderful in caring for our small dogs and farm animals during our five day vacation. She sent pics and a message each day. Everyone was happy and healthy when we returned. We will definitely use her again when the need arises.

Carol Anne is a life saver! I had an accident and will not be able to walk my large active collie for several months. Carol Anne has not only done a magnificent job of bonding with and exercising my dog, she is also continuing my dog's behavioral training. I cannot recommend Waggin' Tails more highly! Thank you, Carol Anne

Selene has been great at training our 5 year old Lab/Mastiff. She explains what to do and why and learns all she can about the dogs temperament so she can make specific recommendations.

We had our 2 dogs (pit/lab mix & pit) go thru the board and train at Aloha. What a change it made in their behavior. No more bolting out the door or jumping on the couch and my favorite, no more jumping on the back door trying to get in without first waiting for the command. Kevin is very knowledgable about dog behavior and provided great feedback. Of course we will still need to continue to work with our dogs but without Kevin and the two week board & training we wouldn't be a far along as we are now. So very pleased we found Kevin and we will continue to use Aloha Canine for boarding when we take vacation. Beautiful facility - Kevin is the best... Karen & Dustie

I've had the pleasure of working with Christie both recently and over the last several years. She is an excellent trainer! She has saved many shelter dogs that would have otherwise had a very unhappy ending. She is professional, punctual, very knowledgeable about dog behavior, and her training program has wonderful results. I look forward to working with her for years to come! I would highly recommend her services if are looking for a trainer in general or if your dog has aggression issues.

Kris at Canine Moxy is very knowledgable about dog behavior, especially big/working dogs like our Malamute and Husky/Shepherd mix. He is a great instructor, giving you simple exercises to do with your dogs between training to continue the lessons, and is at your service anytime you have questions. Price can't be beat for all you get with Canine Moxy.

We have been super pleased with Tiffany and her reliability. She is so easy to work with and helpful in a pinch with her "can-do" attitude. She is a genuine animal lover, and our dogs are always happy to see her. She's very responsive, and we've been so glad to have found her for home care instead of kennels!

I have frequently referred to Jennifer for assistance with my cat behavioral issues. Anything from aggression, eating abnormalities, cat box issues, integrating a new member into the family, but most importantly assisting me with the many challenges of dealing with geriatric cats. She was always very knowledgeable and addressed each problem with a very attentive and caring attitude. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who has been frustrated with trying to find a peaceful resolution to their furry felines behavior.

Tori really knows her stuff. I've trained many dogs over the years, and have been learning new, more effective techniques to train my current furry family member. She spends the time to get to know the family members as well as the dog(s). She knows the various breeds of dogs and how to leverage their strengths and work with any difficult behavior. I am so very happy to have Tori working with us (my wife, me and Buddy). I highly recommend her!

I found Julie while I was exploring the variety of things (shows, events, competitions) my dog could experience. I was referred to her for instruction in what is called Nosework (a fun search and scenting activity). Through this experience Julie has introduced me to methods of training that have developed my relationship with my dog I didn’t know was possible. Buddy (my 70 lb rescued mutt) and I are growing every day in our understanding of each other. I can better understand his behavior cues and He understands what I’m asking of Him.

Becki took really good care of my kitties and dog. I liked that she has several years as a vet tech which put my mind at ease. I could tell from our initial meeting that she loves animals and animals love her!

Cheryl took very good care of my dog and cat over the weekend. She was easy to contact and to set up dates to meet my animals. She even sent me a picture to let me know they were ok. I will use her in the furture to take care of my animals.

Derek is extremely professional and is great with animals. He has been walking my dog for several weeks now and I couldn't be happier with the level of service provided. I have recommended Bones and Leashes Pet Service to friends in the area.
