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 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.

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.

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.

Loose Leash, LLC provided excellent training for Max, my German Shepherd, and for me. Max and I have learned so much because Trey is consistent, well-rounded, attentive, and enthusiastic. Max had obedience training and clicker training. He also had an introduction to search and rescue. I plan to keep using Loose Leash for further training purposes!

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.

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.

About

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.
