I am absolutely pleased. Robert met with me on short notice and was very responsive. He was professional, organized and has a very good manner with my dog. The whole service is fantastic, not only the walk but the follow up email. I love the map detailing the route and the pictures of my dog, I look forward to seeing that from every walk! I know my dog is in good hands. Two very big thumbs up!

Gabby is great! She is loving of animals and kind to dog owners. She is both responsible and responsive. She offered to use dog walks as a venue for their training. Both dogs and owners have benefited. There is no doubt if we keep up her routines the whole neighborhood will notice the transition. We have a geriatric portugese waterdog, two pomeranian/terrior mix- 10 year siblings. We will think of her first when we need a dog walker and recommend her at every chance.

Shawna was great with our troubled twosome. They are a work in progress but she helped us understand what they were doing and why they were doing it. We are seeing great improvements with them every day! They loved her which helped a great deal. She had a very good way with the dogs and they responded to her beautifully and always greeted her as an old friend, which is surprising with Lhasas. They aren't that good with people they see every day! We would highly recommend her!

It's obvious CeCe loves dogs and made sure ours was treated like one of her own. This was what we were looking for. Didn't want our pet in some doggie prison.

I first met Matt when he was training at Downtown Dog Lounge in Seattle. He's a flat-out awesome dog trainer who shows genuine love (sometimes tough love) and care with each pooch he works with. Our Puggle Little Bear loved hanging with him at daycare, and eventually we had Matt housesit for us to watch Little Bear and routine dog walks while we lived in Seattle. I have never trusted anyone with Little Bear more than Matt—he's fantastic!

Helen is a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, CPDT-KA, and holds a TAGTeach International Primary Certification. She is and has been a clicker-trainer since 2000, and formalized her training through the Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Trainers course. She attends lectures and training workshops as often as her schedule permits, as she enjoys keeping up with current training methods, and also because her certifications require CEUs. Her students learn the clicker method of training and enjoy success training behaviors. She has taught since 2004; loves training and helping clients train their dogs, whether for good behaviors as a companion or laying a foundation for obedience. Tell me what your training difficulties are, and I'll give you the skills to help your dog. (Please note - I do not work with human-aggressive dogs.) Private training is available in the following areas: on the east side of Lake Washington -- Renton, Kirkland, Newcastle, Issaquah, Bellevue, Redmond, Maple Valley, and Kent. Watching teams succeed in either environment brings joy to Helen. Train your dog with Helen; you'll enjoy success! Clicker training works!

Professional. Personal. Friendly. Fun. These are just a few words clients use to express their feelings after working with us. Training the dog is much more then getting Fido to "sit" on command. It is understanding how to speak"Doglish". This is what every dog speaks through body language. Our classes don't just teach you how to control your dog, but also how to understand, and communicate with your dog so you both achieve progress. Two decades of working with families, like yourself, in need of help. We work with k-9's and their owners all around the Olympic Peninsula, you can rest assure that you will have fun learning with your dog. We have experience working with dogs of all sizes, ages and stages. There are no breed restrictions. We also have experience working with disabled clients who need a specialized, trained service dog. Our class is one on one, in the private of your own home. We provide you with training, field trips, and understanding the laws both, state and federal and how it applies to using a service dog. We also help in preparing the client to advocate for themselves when they come across situations where they are not allowed access because of the "no animal" policy. Most services are provided in the comfort of client's home. Services include the following: * manners * basic obedience * behavior issues * GCG testing We also offer service dog testing, training, as well as workshops for businesses on access issues with service dogs.

Randi knows her stuff! She is always taking classes to better her knowledge of dogs, dog training, and behavior. She brings that knowledge into the classroom and you can tell. Her methods are well vetted scientific based and proven time and time again, while being extremely humane and efficient. We can't get enough of her classes!
