I love her energy, her positive approach and her professionalism. I love that she is able to tailor the training to my dog and my'son specific goals and needs.
Cindy was on time, and very friendly. She also was very flexible with times and days that worked best for us as a family. She not only provided training for the dogs, but also provided knowledge to us about how the mind of a dog works, and how to receive the best relationship with your dog as possible. She provided many different environments for our dog to encounter situations, and continually made sure we felt comfortable in the training. I would recommend Cindy with One-On-One Dog Training to anyone who would like an extremely friendly, flexible, and outstanding trainer for you and dog!
I am very satisfied with the training my dog received. My family adopted him as a 4 year old and he had picked up quite a few bad habits. While he will likely never be perfectly behaved, he is so much easier and more enjoyable to work and play with now.
Patti is amazing! She gave me practical tips on training my dogs and gave me insight into how their minds work. She showed me processes to help me work with them and gave me hope that I will be able to train them properly. She saw my dogs as loving, sweet and good dogs - like I do! Even just 24 hrs later I see a marked difference in their listening and wanting to change direction! I have 2 mastiffs and needed someone to come to my home since it wasn't possible to take them both somewhere by myself for training and she was able to do that. Patti is kind and gentle and I am so thankful for her help! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
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.
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!
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!
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
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 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!
I have worked with other dog trainers but Jeff goes so much further than most. He gave our border terrier the chance she needed and all our lives are so much the better for it.
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
She's been great for me! She walks dogs, sometimes feeds them. She also occassionally cares for cats. She brings the newspaper in from the driveway & the emptied trash cans from the street. She does a good job, seems to care about her work, and is very reliable.
Dinah is fantastic! She's reliable, trustworthy, flexible, and most importantly our dogs just love her! We have been with Dinah for a year now. She walks our two dogs three times or more per week while my fiancé and I work long shifts at a hospital 30 minutes away. We are able to focus on our work without worry that our dogs will be cared for. I highly recommend her!
We walk all types of dogs from Monday to Friday. We love helping animals, and we would love to take your dog for a walk.
I like dogs and being around them. They keep me on my toes in a good way.
I am trying to raise money to go to the camp next summer. I have been taking care of other people's animals for the last two years and have references. I can pet sit overnight at my house, come over after school to walk your dog and clean up pet messes.
I just love dogs, small ones, big ones and any size! I will take them to the vet or around the block for their walk. Your choice is my pleasure.
I am a student, so I am always looking for extra work that does not interfere with school. I started just doing this work for family members when they left town and then the word got out and began doing it for family friends and so on.
the love i have for dogs. spending time with them. keeping them healthy and good diet. Socializing them with other digs is healthy
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.
