We did Board&Train for a very wild but lovable Pug, Jack. Jack was 10 months old when we got him and obviously did not get proper attention prior to our adoption. Jack was wild and very skiddish. I had trained him a little but marginal success. Joseph took over while we went on vacation. He went above and beyond. Jack now responds to his commands and is a regular member of the family (instead of being a wild Pug). Joseph was very patient with the dog & the family (with kids). He has a passion for training dogs & it shows. Joseph is very conscientious and insightful. I highly recommend Board & Train, a very efficient & effective way to train your dog. Plus, Joseph's prices are very reasonable. Lastly & importantly, Joseph is an Army Veteran. It's great to support a veteran!
Bridgette Ashmore, owner of REACHK9, is an exceptional dog trainer. It was important that I begin the dog training very quickly. I reviewed 3 companies, spoke with 2, and invited Bridgette to visit. I was definately impressed. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and supportive. She provides demonstrations, practice sessions, printed material, videos, dog supplies and food. She arrived at my home promptly on Tuesday and Friday and trained us for 4 hours. Her business is open 24/7 and responded to my phone calls, texts, and emails with suggestions and support. Bridgette Ashmore, REACHK9, is a wonderful choice. I have signed up as her client and look forward to our next session. I definitely see improvement in our dog. Bernadette Ervin
Andrea came to my house to train my Dog, Loki. She was excellent! She observed his negative behaviors and gave me easy and EFFECTIVE ways to deflect his attention onto something more positive. We saw Andrea on Friday, 2/02/18 @ 9am and she was here for a hour. I've been using all of the techniques she taught me and although it's only been over 40 hours since she visited, Loki is already showing excellent improvement. She even called me back later Friday afternoon, to say she researched one of his more unusual behaviors and gave she gave me additional instructions for training Loki regarding this specific issue. I highly recommend Andrea from Belton Entertainment, she understands Dogs, what drives them and how to handle/control those behaviors. Good Luck!
I have worked with TNT Dog Training before and they provide great training with reasonable prices. I can't wait to get more training for my Braxton here soon :)
She was fantastic in handling our dog, he definitely appreciated it.
My dog is very old and I was worried about leaving her all day at a groomer. They gave marlie her own appointment slot, so she was done within 2 hours. They took their time with her and only did what my dog would allow. I was very pleased with the care and consideration they took with my old girl. The haircut turned out great too!
Deanna is awesome! I can’t believe how quickly she taught/ trained our dog!
Stephanie is very good at what she does!!! She is a true animal lover and it's obvious when she talks about all of her bully breed rescues turned therapy dogs! She expects them to behave well and can train them to do so, but she treats them like their people as in always makes sure they are provided for: they always have food and water, are emotionally and physically sound, and happy even away from their owners. Highly recommended !
I have 3 GSD, 2 of which were only days away from going to a rescue, or worse. We were at our wits end with them. That is until we found OLK9, I did all my home work (tried to find something bad) found no issues with OLK9. Got the money together and off the first one went to see joey he kept in constant contact with us while he had out first of 3 babies. The day we got karma back I knew we had made the right decision and had no problem bringing the next 2 for him change, joey and OLK9 are not dog trainers they are dog savers. If more people would make an investment into their dogs as quickly as we do our cars there would be a lot less animals in the shelter. Joey transformed all 3 of our dogs, I have had to call for advice here and there. Almost all the time it has been my mistake not the dogs. Not only do we still have all 3 of our dogs but one of the dogs that was on her way out, made such a turn around that we decided to breed her (never would have done that in her past). It's impossible to give joey and his staff enough stars, so I guess 5 will have to do.
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 breed and train Flat-Coated Retrievers; however, I have owned and trained many different breeds in the past. I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, which is an autoimmune disease which may disrupt my schedule on days that I am not feeling well.
I offer all-breed dog grooming and training, either big or small. I groom and train them all. I am an all-around pet-care professional.
I like to help and work with a dog. It is very clever animal. With them, everything is easy. They are very friendly because they trust you.

I have been around dogs my entire life, and I have a very good understanding of dogs and their behavior. But more importantly, I love them and enjoy being and working with them. I have had a neighborhood dog service called Dogtopia, and many of my neighbors and friends have utilized my dog sitting, dog walking, and dog grooming services. I have also interned at Dogma in Carytown. I live in the city and have a fueled vehicle as well. I am available on evenings, weekends and anytime during the summer. Although I am a recent high school student, my maturity, practical experience, and eagerness with caring for dogs and animals will make me an excellent pet sitter. If you want to interview me, you can call me!
I provide dependable dog walking and pet sitting services with the same quality of care and attention that their owners would give if their schedules allowed them to be present.
I have a lot of experience taking care of peoples pets as well as walking dogs. I have always had dogs my whole life as well as other animals too! I love being around animals and making sure they are well-cared for.
