The service was excellent. Andrea was very knowledgeable and extremely patient with us and our 2 puppies. She was flexible with her scheduling and generous with good advice. We will be using Andrea again for the continuation of the dog training.
Posh Pet Training has been a life saver in my home! Paula has helped us understand our cat's behavior and we are on our way to quelling the aggressive behavior one of our cats is expressing upon the new kitten. She is kind, funny, and really spends the time needed to get to the root of the issue. I'm so glad I've hired her! She really loves every animal in your home and wants everyone to live in harmony (humans and pets alike!) I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, friendly trainer!
They know exactly what they are doing when it comes to dog training! Excellent customer service they got me started right away and all I had to do is give them a little bit of his intel on what I was looking for. Great experience overall!!
She did such a great job with grooming my dog! Definitely recommend!
Andrea is not only a certified trick dog instructor, has a dog obedience instructor diploma and is an AKC Evaluator for S.T.A.R. puppy, Canine Good Citizen, Advanced CGC and Urban CGC, she also is great with all kinds of animals. By teaching classes as well as competing with her one dogs in varies dog sports (Agility, Obedience, Rally-O, Flyball, Barnhunt, Tricks, Tracking and K9 Nose Work ) she improves and offers the most effective and suitable ways to teach people how to train their dogs. Her training method is based on positive reinforcement and with that technique she can train any animal even cats. She continuously keeps education herself and has taken several training workshops and seminars: *Dr. Ian Dunbar's Sirius Dog trainer Academy *Growl class- workshop for Reactive dogs *Science-based Dog training *Kyra Sundance dog trick workshop * Reliability & games workshop I have the pleasure to teach, train, compete with her what also turned in to a great friendship and I only can say that anyone that can get her services can call themselves lucky.
Within one meeting our dog was coming to me and sitting on my feet on command. My initial thought was these collars 'shocked" your dog as a punishment. Actually, it's more of a tap on the shoulder to get their attention back on you. Many times I thought the trainer possessed a magic want. Wonderful to have a well trained dog!
Stephanie was fantastic with my dog Adi. She clearly knew what she was doing and she was more than happy to answer all of my questions. Training a dog is more than the pet it is so much about the owner and how they behave and she helped me to understand that. I would recommend her to everyone I know with a dog.
Love the service 3 more advanced next service dog.
We signed up for Beginning Obedience. Ms. Lankford is a pro and knows her dogs. We had a great experience. I have signed up another dog for the good citizens class.
She is amazing with our dog. She is dependable and reliable. Most important to me, she is trustworthy. I wanted someone that I could trust leaving my dog and house with, she is the one. I would highly recommend her.
Jan is an animal lover extraordinaire! She has cared for my dog for many years from pet sitting during the day to overnight stays for weeks at a time. I have to be able to trust someone with my dog, as he has a severe heart condition that requires different medications at different times of the day. He also needs to be kept in a calm environment, as too much excitement causes him to have cardiac "episodes." I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else but Jan because I can count on her to shower my little guy with lots of love and feel confident he is going to receive the extra special care he requires due to his medical condition. I can't say enough nice things about Jan, as her love for animals shines through in everything she does for all of the creatures in her life!
I love dogs I have one of my own and willing to work after school. School ends at 2:05 and I get home at 2:40.

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.
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.
We are committed to providing the highest level obedience training and behavior management services possible. Our goal is to assist families with their canine companions who are a bit more challenging, as well as those who are simply interested in obedience training. At True Canine Companion, we are focused on building positive and appropriate relationships between families and their canines; focusing on how we, the humans, interact with, challenge, set boundaries, and find balance within ourselves, in order to create a life-long bond with not only our canine companion, but with the world. Building respect and trust is the basis for all of our training and behavior programs. Each program begins with a relationship building seminar that allows us to set you and your canine up to succeed.
I am trying to become a dog groomer and get people to let me try on more animals. See how much I like it to see if that's what I really enjoy!
Step Up Dog Training classes are about more than just getting your dog to sit and stay; it is about building confidence in both owner and dog to foster a working relationship. As you and your dog develop new skills, you will learn more about your canine friend and how to encourage the behavior you need from it. We do group or private training for all breeds and ages of dogs. We hold group or private classes at our center, Surf Dog in York County, but at-home training is available to clients in the Hampton Roads area. Group classes are $100 for a seven-week course or $50 for a four-week course. Please contact us for information on all of our rates.
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!
I have always been a sincere lover of all animals, especially dogs. They have always taken to me extremely well. I seem to be able to talk their language.
