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.

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.

We have had Kelly take care of our 3 dogs twice when going out of town and have been very satisfied with the service. He was very detailed in the information he needed us to leave for him and very personable and we could tell he enjoys caring for animals. Everything that was requested as far as their care was done. It has been a big help and relief to have someone reliable to care for our pets.

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.

Tammy and her crew did a fantastic job working with my stubborn Great Dane, Stella!!!! She was a different dog when I picked her up and, she LOVED her trainers!! I got updates along the way and pictures to hold me over until I could pick her up again. I would definitely use Creature Comfort Inn again if needed!!!

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.

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

My dog loved Tammy. She took great care of him while I was away. She not only fed, groomed, and provided exercise for him but gave him lots of love. I felt very comfortable leaving my fur baby with her and would definitely recommend. I've already arranged to have my dog stay with her in the future.

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.

About

Atlantic Coast K-9 has been in business since 1999. I (Ralph Smith) have personally trained over 3,000 dogs and am recognized as one of the Top Trainers in the country. Most trainers in today's world are extremely basic and gimmicky in what they train your dog to do. That's a sure sign of an amateur. There are no gimmicks with me. I didn't get the reputation that I have for giving subpar training. My slogan is that we offer "Competition Level Obedience for the Average Dog". You can easily pick a dog out of a crowd that I have trained because that dog will be far superior to any of the other dogs around. I have titled more dogs than most other trainers and I am a National Level Competitor in Sport Dog Competition. Simply put, to get to the level that I have attained, you have to be the best of the best. That's what I have to offer you. My prices are reasonable but I'm sure that you can find someone cheaper. Just remember that you get what you pay for. I also offer a 100% guarantee that your dog will be exactly what you want it to be when I train it and I will continue to work with the dog to reach that goal for as long as it takes. See how many other trainers will offer you that. I also offer many services that very few trainers offer. This is a testament to my experience. Those services are: Basic and Advanced Obedience, Behavior Counseling, Protection Training, Schutzhund Training, Explosives and Narcotics Detection, K-9 Security Services, Search and Rescue Training, Show Dog Handling and Training Seminars.
