Sylvia's love for dogs is well beyond words. Sylvia is an extremely knowledgeable, professional dog trainer with vast experience. She quickly identified at least one of our dogs behaviour needs when she was greeted at our gate with two dogs barking their heads off. She was correct. Unwanted barking was one of the behavior we were looking for guidance to silence. Additionally, with the ability to walk our dogs without pulling. Sylvia provided us with excellent practical hands on training, resources, advice and support. Amazing to see how much was covered during this one hour session. She certainly left us on her first visit the confidence of achieving desired results. Sylvia has an incredible passionate way of how she relates to people and dogs--motivates dogs and owners to alter the dogs and human behaviors with a goal of achieving a happy, healthier dogs and owners. We have implemented her guidance and seeing small results already. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with Sylvia during this journey.

Thank you Martha! I was very hesitant about getting a trainer, only because it is a little bit of a financial commitment and I think a lot of us think that we can do things ourselves, but I was really having a hard time with one of my dogs and decided that it was worth it to try a trainer. She was great. She was very responsive and attentive before I even hired her, and even more so after. She works with you to make sure you get what you want/need out of the session. She met my two dogs and helped me better understand why they were misbehaving and how I could make them better. She listened to all my concerns and addressed all of them, and best of all once she works with you, you can call her anytime for additional help which is very reassuring. On a side note she is also very fair, and if money is a concern she can definitely work with you to try to keep the time frame within your budget which was very appreciated. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I definitely recommend Martha!

I have been in the veterinary field for more than 20 years but I've never trained a dog. Without Jenn's help I would be lost! I own two Belgian Malinois under the age of 2 and they are a handful!Jenn's skilled guidance has been detrimental in the formation of obedient owner and obedient dogs!

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.

I took my dog in for some behavioral issues... He likes to jump on people when I'm out walking him. Anne was very knowledgeable and offered straightforward advice and clear directions for helping this issue. I'd definitely recommend Anne's services to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

We recently adopted our dog and noticed some behavior issues resulting from previous abuse. The rescue organization recommended that we contact Shawna for advice. I told Shawna the problems we were experiencing and she gave me some suggestions over the phone. We set up an appointment for her to meet our new dog and evaluate the situation. After our first meeting it was clear that she could help us. She was able to identify the cause of the behavior we were dealing with and gave us effective tips to help us deal with his triggers and build his confidence so that he could feel safe. The training sessions that we have had so far have shown remarkable results. Our dog is more relaxed and looks forward to his training every day. He is happy to show off his skills to Shawna at his next session with her. Shawna has a very common sense approach to training and her advise if followed provides an opportunity for any dog to be successful. My husband and I believe in giving rescue dogs a home whenever possible and if we adopt another dog in the future Shawna will be the first call we make to help us navigate the unknown of our new pet's history. I cannot say enough good things about our experience dealing with her.

We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!

I use Nancy's services and expertise regulary. She is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and professional....as well as fun! She takes her job seriously and creates genuine relationships with both pets and parents of pets. She always goes out of her way to make sure my cat is healthy and loved, and honestly, I think she knows my cat better then I do! She can understand what my cat is communicating at a whole different level then I do! She has often detected something wrong with my cat that requires attention to finer details that I would've otherwise paid no attention to. I appreciate and trust her gut instinct and her gift at researching to see if there is any validity to her suspicions on my cat's needs and health. In the past I had a dog she also took care of. She was very close to him and took care of him so kindly and compassionately in his old age with all of his special needs and medications.  It made me feel so safe leaving my dog at home during the day knowing that he'd have special care throughout the day and Nancy's good company. I HIGHLY recommend Nancy and Curlette's Critter Care.

Melinda is incredible! I think our pets are hoping we will travel again soon so that they can hang out with her! She is very diligent, detailed, and absolutely loves animals. She really treated our older cat and dog like they were her own. I cannot recommend her highly enough and it gave us great piece of mind that our pets and home would be well cared for while we were gone.

To whom it may concern: Cara provided pet sitting services in my home on numerous occasions beginning in November, 2012. Cara proved to be capable and responsible as well as a great communicator. During this time, I had no issues with the services she provided, in fact it was a relief to leave home knowing that my dog, Toby, as well as my home, were both so reliably cared for. Cara was on time and was wonderful in keeping me informed of how Toby was feeling and behaving. I recommend anyone that is looking for a pet sitting service to rely on Cara. I was fully satisfied and confident that my dog was in the best hands. Sincerely, Donna

Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!

I have worked with Pearl directly and observed her interactions with dogs and cats first hand. I can't imagine anyone being more loving and responsible to have as a pet sitter. She really goes the extra mile for pets in her care. She not only spends quality time with the pets, she also makes sure doors and windows are secure at their home, etc. When clients are on vacation she does things like bringing in the mail & watering the lawn. She follows instructions from pet owners carefully & is always cautious when entering or exiting a home to make certain a dog or cat doesn't escape. She is caring, responsible and thorough in her dog walking / pet care work.

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!

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!
