We hired Tatiana to work with our young dog, Maggie. Maggie was a stray that we brought into our home. She, Maggie, had some issues and definitely needed some training. Tatiana was very knowledgeable about what Maggie needed. She worked with Maggie with patience, love, and firmness when needed. She also trained us in how we should work with Maggie. She also took us on a field trip to show us how to socialize Maggie which she definitely needed. She was very patient with Maggie and our other dog that wanted attention from her, also. We are so thankful for all the help and advice she gave us. Maggie has improved so much. Trudy Kinney
Kevin's method of training is excellent. Not only does he train the dog but the handler as well. He's very patient and knowledgeable in all aspects. His training has made a huge differance in the way my dog acts. I look forward to the upcoming sessions of advanced training. I highly recommend Kevin.
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.
We brought Cera in as first time dog owners in need of help training our dog - as well as ourselves. She was a complete natural with our dog, and her calm, professional manner also helped calm our nerves. She was a steady, knowledgeable presence that got us through the first few months of owning a dog.
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.
Robin trained us along with our dog. Easy to work with, so helpful. Lots of encouragement. WONDERFUL!!!
Couldn't ask for any better! I needed extended care and decided to have training added while I was away, thought it would be something to keep my pup busy so he didn't miss me so much, the care was exceptional and the training results were better than I could have ever asked for, and I am willing to say he didn't miss me much! I think he had a better time with them then he does with me, I will surely use them again even if it is just to give him a vacation! They kept in touch with me with lots of pictures and were always available to talk, his health is amazing, manners impeccable and I am a very happy customer. Thanks again for all you do! Will highly recommend to anyone I know looking for dog care.
Jess is an amazing trainer. She is so patient with all of her clients (dogs and humans alike). She is willing to help in any way possible to ensure my peace of mind while working with my dog. She has revolutionized my relationship with my dog as well. I am so pleased with how my dog responds to me because of the foundation Jess started.
Cam was fantastic with all of our animals. She critter-sat for a week this summer and honestly I swear they're all better behaved now than when we left on vacation! I'm almost jealous of how well she got along with our two jack russells, barncats, and three horses. Her rates were very compete as well. We'll be giving her all our pet training and sitting business from now on. So glad we connected with her.

I have spent most of my life with all sorts of animals. Our house was the place that all discarded pets made their way to. Not a one was ever turned away. They became our pets & spent their days on a 30 acre farm. Not one was ever turned away or sent to the pound. We even adopted a very pregnant hound that had 11 puppies. We found homes for all. I have a good relationship with dogs. They will always get love & attention from me.
I provide pet sitting, dog walking, and light housekeeping services. I can sit for your pets in your home, or I can take your pets home with me.
I just love animals so much and being around them always brightens my day.
I love dogs. I got three big and one lap dog. I love all four of them. I feel a lot of pity towards pet injustice. I love them.
