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.

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!

Nichole was wonderful! Our dog got so much attention, she almost didn't want to leave when we came to pick her up. I'm hoping she can watch both of our dogs our next 3 trips.

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!

Elaine was awesome, she was punctual, courteous, professional and did a fantastic job with our dogs. She did our 2 dogs, Marley a 25lb Labradoodle who had not been groomed in months as we had been out on our boat all summer, also Dublin, our 80lb English Cream Holden Retriever. They look so clean, smell so fresh and seem happier. I highly recommend Elaine...

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

About

I train little pups into mellow, mild-mannered mutts and teach pet owners to understand where their dog/puppy is coming from.

About

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.

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.

    Just adopted her, the dog, from an animal shelter on July 3rd, 2013. She is about 1 years old. The shelter did not have much info on her. The dog is a great people-dog, but seems to have trouble getting along with other dogs. I would like to help her socialize with other dogs. I have never had a dog before. Unfortunately, I am on a tight budget and cannot afford anything more than $15/hour.
