Paula made a site visit to my apartment and met with my Dog and me. She quickly identified the problem I was having with my Shiba, and drew up a plan on steps we can try to fix the fear aggression that my dog displayed. Paula asked quite a few questions which were right on queue with all the concerns I had with my dog. I look forward to seeing the results in my dog in the following weeks to come. My main goal is to have a people friendly dog, and I would like to be able to bring my dog to dog parks so she can interact with other people and dogs.
I highly recommend Andrea as a professional dog trainer. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher, she was readily available and very flexible with her schedule. Her instructions were very clear and beneficial. In addition, I appreciated that her price was reasonable and she made all of her suggestions in one visit. She could have easily and justifiably stretched the training out for multiple private visits. She addressed all issues in one visit but was willing to come back, if necessary.
I had recently adopted a pitbull mix and she had horrible dog aggression issues and aggression toward men. It was so bad that I could hardly take her out on walks, which kept her from letting out her extra energy and made the problem much worse. Dog training was my last resort and I would have had to get rid of the dog if it didn't work. I had about 5 or 6 sessions here but with just the first one, we were able to go back out on walks. The behavior was still there, but I was able to handle her and she began responding to my commands rather than continuing to go after the other dogs or people. Every session helped her more and more and I even got her to be able to go near dog parks, take walks in the park and on a good day, even go into pet stores. I seriously have a different dog in my house now and its amazing! I recommend this trainer to everyone I can. I was looking to get rid of this dog and now she's by far my best trained pupper.
The dog trainer is amazing!! I didn't think Aria could be trained at all but she came in and taught her all the basics. Now Aria is a much calmer and obedient dog, she is great to have around now. Thank you
Love the service 3 more advanced next service dog.
Beth is a wonderful pet sitter She is reliable, caring, and communicates well with you during the time you are away. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Andrea is an outstanding dog trainer and pet sitter. She has been helping me with my pets for years now. My dog Chaos is pit-lab mix and she is very hyper. Andrea has calmed her down significantly over the past year. Chaos loves Andrea and is excited to spend time with her and learn what she is teaching. I dont know what I would do without her.
She was just wonderful. My dogs were well taken care of and so was my house.
Went out of town for 2 weeks. Chris took very good care of my 3 dogs. He sent me videos of them playing all the time. Pictures of them sleeping. And basically let me know how they were doing daily. It's apparent he has a heart for animals. I have and trusted him many times with them and will continue to in the future.

Is your dog out of control? Maybe you just got a dog and you want him or her to be well-behaved and listen to you? Here at K9 Connections, I can give your dog the foundation of basic obedience! He or she will learn to follow orders such as sit, down, heel, come, wait, and "leave it" after I teach him! I can help with behavior modifications also! I am a private dog trainer, which also means one-on-one training with your dog. I can come to you or you can drop off your dog to be trained! Hourly training is available also!

My work stands out from the rest because I strive for perfection in everything I do. If the job is done and I see something I don't like, I will redo it.
I had never used a pet sitter before and was desperate to find someone to watch my 3 dogs on the 4th of July so we could attend our nephews wedding in Pa. (who knew how difficult that would be!) Ali watched my 14 year old blind/deaf dog and my 8 month old and 8 week old puppy. She was so attentive and even sent me pictures while we were gone! 2 weeks later we had her come back for training of the babies and they went crazy when they saw her... it was like she was a member of the family. I have done a lot of internet searching for dog training and am amazed at what Ali was able to accomplish in just one hour. I cannot recommend her enough, she is wonderful!!!
I recommend Run Poochie Run for anyone who knows their pets aren't pets but are family. Sterlin was not only professional and knowledgeable but I knew at our first meeting that he was someone I could leave my dog with.

Dogs are life. I will walk, feed, play, and care for dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do not discriminate! My favorite activity is to go to trails and walk with dogs. I have high energy golden retrievers who sleep in bed with me, share my food with me, and give me a reason to live. I am looking to bring more dogs into my life whose owners unfortunately do not have time to walk as much as they would like due to jobs or family concerns.
As dog trainers we recognize that each individual dog and owner have their own goals and needs. We mold all of our training to each individual dog and owners needs.
