Kathryn has been a wonderful trainer to our 10 month golden retriever. She is warm, friendly, and very easy to work and coordinate with. She is an effective trainer and within 2 visits we were seeing positive improvements in our dog's behavior and ability to respond appropriately to commands. She has a firm, but gentle approach to dog training which I appreciate having worked with another trainer in the past who was quite harsh with our former dog.

Jojo did an awesome job with our vizsla pup, Argos. She's very meticulous and articulate in training our dog. Her strategies are very effective especially with a very hyper dog. We love her and we would recommend her to anybody looking for in-home dog training.

We've had two sessions with Maxine (an initial 3 hour visit and an hour long follow up visit) and couldn't be happier. We took in a 3 year old lab/beagle mix named Hamish about two months ago and needed some help with basic obedience training and also some specific problems: nuisance barking, pulling on the leash, and some occasional guarding behavior. After just one session, we were able to communicate much more effectively with Hamish and his problem behaviors lessened. And the extra guidance we got at our follow up session today has already proven extremely useful. Hamish used to bark and bark at passersby and not heed any of our efforts to quiet him. Now he barks less frequently and when he does we're able to get his attention and he stops. His recall has also improved dramatically. Overall, he's also much calmer - it's obvious he feels more comfortable now that he understands our respective roles and what's expected of him. We feel fully supported by Maxine and highly recommend her services.

Jenny is amazing! She gets along great with our pup! We have her come over every day, and even after two+ weeks she still is great about sending text and photo updates to let us know how everything is going! She even has a dog walking journal that she updates every visit with details about their time together. I couldn't ask for a better experience! She seems as genuinely concerned about our pup as we do, and that's all we can ask for!

The owner of PuppyLovin, Julie, is one awesome dog trainer and a wonderful person. My wife and I have been taking our German Shepherd to her for training, boarding, and day care for about a year and a half now. She has really been a godsend when it comes to dog training. Without her training, assistance, and consultation, we would have had our hands full with our GSD. I highly recommend PuppyLovin for all three of the services stated above. Julie will cater her services to the needs of your dog and develope comprehensive plan for your pet.

Hillary has been walking our puppy Chauncey during the week while we are away at work for the past 3-4 weeks. She is great to work with and very trustworthy. Our Chauncey loves her! There is never accidents in the house when we get home and Hillary leaves us notes or text messages letting us know what she did with Chauncey and if he went potty while she was there. She has been working out great and we hope to keep her business for a long time!

Tammy and her crew did a fantastic job working with my stubborn Great Dane, Stella!!!! She was a different dog when I picked her up and, she LOVED her trainers!! I got updates along the way and pictures to hold me over until I could pick her up again. I would definitely use Creature Comfort Inn again if needed!!!

Obedience training: The ultimate dog lover; Sean is both engaging and demanding yet gentle with a temperament and energy pups can relate to. He is instinctive and rewarding reaping great response and much respect from all dogs. His experience as an owner of the rare Shikoku and fiesty chihuahua is clearly instrumental in his firm patience that many mischievous pups need. I recommend Sean's services and if you work with him your pup will be both obedient and happy! Affordable Available Convenient Fast results

I just want to thank Sarka so much for helping us out with training our dog, Hnupka. We had a very difficult time coping with Hnupka before we decided to contact Sarka and ask her for her expert help. Sarka taught Hnupka basic obedience and helped him to socialize with other dogs, humans and daily busy city life. Sarka also showed us techniques on how to handle Hnupka ourselves, set his expectations, and build his respect for us in a humane and loving way so that he would obey. Hnupka is now a much more manageable part of our family. I would highly recommend Sarka as an obedience trainer. She loves dogs and they love her back. Linda

I thoroughly enjoy training animals whether it be dogs or horses. I have been training for over 30 years. Taining involves spending time with your animal and that is good for everyone.

About

I really like animals, which makes me love my job. I used to have four dogs and a cat. I try to be passive and lovely every time that I'm with a pet because I believe that every animal needs to be treated with the same respect and love that every living being needs to be treated with.
