I highly recommend Tricia for anyone desiring help training their pup. We've used 3 other trainers for our mastiff and none of the prior trainers have provided the level of explanation of behavior or improvements we've seen in my dog. She always maintains a calm and positive attitude while training myself and my dog. We really couldn't be happier with her as a trainer.

Bridget is caring and amazing. She knows how to teach both the dog & owner. My rescue responded immediately. She uses no choke collars, has a full understanding of dogs & behaviors and gives you all the material so that you & your dog can practice.

This is a great place with great people. My dog Shakka loves it there and is thriving. His love for all animals is unmatched by many and generosity is endless. He became my friend the first day we met and been great every since. His home environment allowed Shakka to transition very easily and allowed her to grow and not stress. I recommend Charlottesville pet care to anyone and everyone. It's great. It's home away from home for your fury friends and children.

Our dog Klementine had a wonderful 10 day stay! Daily exercise, the company of some new canine friends, and most of all her time in the pool! We can rest easy in the future when we are travelling somewhere she cannot.

I just wanted to post to say how amazing my first lesson was. My dog Maddie is a very “scared “dog, so I thought she would be harder to get through than most. She is frightened by noises, won’t walk on a leash (unless it is a trail with no one around) and if she is scared for whatever reason, she won’t even go in our own back yard. She, in essence, is a homebody (and very well behaved there). The first lesson Jessica came and Maddie was doing her normal barking, tail tucked between her legs running around the house, afraid of strangers. However, within the first 10 minutes, she got Maddie to warm up, the tail was un-tucked and she was playing! The best part was she was able to get Maddie to walk on her leash outside, around the block. Normally, when I try and walk her anywhere near cars, noises and people, she immediately freezes and refuses to walk. Jessica got her to walk around our apartment complex, no problem. I was amazed. I have been using the same techniques and have been able to walk her much farther distances these past few days. I highly recommend Jessica and I can’t wait until I have more lessons to work out all Maddie’s little quirks.

Merissa has helped me with the training of several of my dogs! Her knowledge of dog training and behavior are outstanding, and she has a way of presenting that knowledge that makes it interesting, relatable, and useful, no matter what topic or trick she's teaching. It's clear that she loves working with dogs and their people, and I can't recommend her highly enough.

I contacted Mrs. Houk with the hopes and intentions of getting my 1 year old doberman to gather some house training and potentially some obedience so that me and my family wouldn't be so stressed about his manners or him tearing up our house while we were gone, not to mention his manners when guests would come over. However, I was thoroughly impressed when we received the dog back. His manners were impeccable; he no longer jumped on people when they came over, when told to get in his bed, (which is an open kennel crate) he would go in it and lay down with no issues and would stay until told to leave. Not to mention his attentiveness seems to have improved. Overall a FAR more manageable dog and me and my family could be more happy with the work that Emily Houk has done. I would highly recommend any one who is seeking the betterment of their dogs to seek out Emily.

About

We are the home-away-from-home kennel alternative. We offer dog boarding in my home and yard. We are best described as a sleepover dog park, where the dogs have hours of access to the outdoors daily with other friendly dogs. In addition, they receive lots of interaction with people.

Heidi has an innate talent with animals of all sorts. She does an excellent job handling and caring for my rabbits. She has also been a big part of my 2 rescued dogs lives. She walks them, trains them, and provides 24 hour care by pet sitting in my home when I need to go out of town. She does exactly what I ask her to do regarding walking, exercising, feeding and bathing the dogs and they really enjoy her company. I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants outstanding care for their animals. If you are considering hiring her feel free to contact me if you have any questions! jpartin26@gmail.com
