Margaret did a great job showing me just what it takes to become the alpha that my two dogs want to follow. She led by example and explained why she was doing the things she was doing, as she was doing them. It was a great help that she had given me a call prior and through about a half hour conversation got to know my two pups and our situation specifically, asking questions about details I would have never even thought of or considered. When Margaret arrived, she had a full page written out of notes she had taken from our phone conversation, and was thoroughly prepared for the lessons that laid ahead. She even had a print out of her 5 golden rules for us, each one being broken down into specific detail for my husband and I to follow. Many of the methods she taught were amazing to watch and I was able to see instant changes in my pups behaviors. She demonstrates thoroughly, then has you practice yourself until you get it down. She also brought us some bonus items, like lead ropes and a whistle etc. to help with our dogs training. Margaret is in no rush, she is there with you and is dedicated to you and your family. She dug deeper and deeper to get to the root of problems and find the best customized solutions. It was very clear that she was fully there and wasn't just dropping by for a paycheck. So far it has been just one week since she came to our home and worked with our family, and already I am seeing some positive changes in behavior. Margaret's program is easy to follow and easy to understand. You don't have to be a dog whisperer to have well behaved pups and a stress free environment with them. Can't wait to see how sticking to this program will help as time goes on! Thanks Margaret!

Karen did amazing work during the two weeks she had my dog for a board/train. My dog is a completely different dog while still being the super sweet dog that she was before.

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

Our experience with Latony's Dog Training so far has been exceptional! Very responsive, very professional and very compassionate toward dogs. During our initial meeting they focused on learning exactly what we are looking for in training our dog and are helping us to created a long-term plan. We can't wait to get started on this process!

We took our 18 month old put bull for training. Anne was very informative and helpful gave my wife and I tons of handouts to help us to continue our training at home between lessons and to continue now. Rusty when he first started his training couldn't even see a dog without getting anxious and start barking and lunging. Now after 4 weeks he will allow dogs to walk by withing about 6 feet without him even caring and we actually took him camping over labor day and the campsite on both sides of us had dogs and he didn't have one outburst. Also rusty now walks nice on a leash with us. If your dog as any behavioral issues or just want to add more training to your dog's repertoire than I highly suggest Anne. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable patient and also affordable than her. Thank you again Anne or and Kirby for putting up with Rusty'a nonsense

Our Lucy is quite sweet but also a very rambunctious Australian Cattle dog. This combined with her stubbornness and physical strength, she was out of control. Thankfully I found Alex. He is great! Right from the start he had Lucy following his commands. Lucy now sits / stays and comes when I call her. We are working on walking without pulling on the leash. It’s wonderful to see the changes with her. He loves dogs and they love him. I highly recommend Alex. I can’t say it enough, he is great!

Cindy Wilson is an excellent dog trainer. She even trained my dog to ring the bill to let me know when he wants to go out. I still call her till this day when I have dog training questions. Even though she's now in another state. I highly recommend her services.

Angelica really cares about our dogs she has made progress with our hardest dog to walk where other people have failed. We have multiple dogs and she takes all of them into consideration. We HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger

Janet was a pleasure to work with! She came to our home to help us manage our dogs fear/phobia that was progressively getting worse. She had great ideas that we would have never thought of and helped us practice and refine some training techniques. She even helped us with our other dog and issues we hadn't planned on dealing with in that session. She answered all our questions and made sure we felt good about everything before she left. Highly recommend working with Janet who clearly loves animals and is good at what she does.

About

You can think of training as learning life lessons. Pet dogs have the capacity to become a loving, even tempered, and well-mannered member of the family. All it takes is hard work dedicated to teaching dogs according to how they learn individually. My understanding of dog communication and cognition allows me to accommodate various levels of intelligence and energy in order to structure a lesson plan for individual dog needs. Training should motivate confidence and problem solving which can be built upon to gain consistency in proper behavior, end unwanted behaviors and strengthen the bond of your family.

A few weeks ago my wife and i hired Draven to watch our two small dogs and our cat while we were out of town, when we got back they were happy and taken for walks every day, the cat was still, well, a cat, but a happy cat. Next time we are hiring Draven for sure

Recently I had the bad luck of both my standing pet sitters moving out of Seattle. I hunted quite a bit for a new pet sitter and came across Morgan from Pit Stop. It's always hard to leave your dogs in the care of someone new when you go on trips, but upon meeting Morgan and seeing her interact with my two pit bulls, I knew she was a perfect fit for us. Morgan took excellent care of them for the long weekend we were away! She sent 2+ daily texts with pics of my pups during her time with them, during morning and evening stays, as well as their midday walks, which I appreciated immensely. She eased my mind while I was away knowing they were in good hands, and I came home to happy and well taken care of dogs. It was great to find a trusting pet sitter again and will be using Morgan in the future!

    Dog is very loving, stubborn, minds only when feels like it AND goes totally crazy when on a walk and sees another dog. She screams bloody murder, her body twists all over in attempts to get loose and there is NO thought process taking place. She also barks at other humans. She will, however, play with other dogs when they come to play (after the usual posturing and grumbling).
