Sylvia came over, to give us advice on our 4 month old Yorkie/Havanese pup - Yoda, who is a handful. She answered all our queries and concerns, spent time teaching us commands for Yoda as well as training Yoda to follow them. We were impressed with how well she handled Yoda and taught him to respond. She is very informative, knowledgeable, patient and passionate about what she does. We like the fact that Sylvia came home to train Yoda in his home environment. We also like the fact that she available via a phone call and can be contacted anytime we have any concerns. We recommend her if you are looking for a good dog trainer. We will definitely be using her for our next dog training session.Thanks Sylvia for easing our minds. Yoda is already showing signs of improvement.
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!
Ada was prompt in responding to my initial request for dog trainers near my home and after discussing what needs to be accomplished explained what she believed would be necessary and how much it would cost giving me the opportunity to talk it over with my daughter (the dog's real owner) who will get back with me tomorrow about the degree of commitment to help pay for the service. Ada kindly accepted the delay and pleasantly offered the suggestion that if it didn't work out just now she would be happy to help whenever we were ready. So, I already know we are going to hire her because she is so flexible and considerate regarding our circumstances and needs.
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.
Wendy is the best dog trainer by far in this area. Totally legit and amazing what she can do for your dog. I guarantee you won't be disappointed and you will be seriously amazed at the results. Worth every penny!!!
Thomas is a great dog trainer! He knows what our dog is thinking and can very simply communicate with her. Our dog seems to learn from Thomas so quickly and effortlessly. We are the ones who need the extra work. But even we get it in a few tries! It is so wonderful to have a dog that is well trained and well mannered! Especially a rather big dog like our dog, Anoush is!!!! We are so happy to have found Thomas and hope to continue with him until our dog earns her "PHD"!!!!!!
The trainer is clear with instructions and patient. She is clearly knowledgeable and has a love for dogs as well as training.
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!
We have been working with April for a little over a month to train our rescue dog Milo. April is easy to work with and our dog responds positively to her. I like how she has goals for us to work on, but also addresses any issues we have with Milo during the week. I also appreciate that she comes to our house, so we can work on issues specific to our environment. I highly recommend April if you are looking for a dog (or people) trainer.
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!
Nancy has provided me with pet sitting services for years, and she has been outstanding from the start. She is one of the handful of people that I would trust in my home without me. Over the years, she has been a favorite with the cats and dogs we have owned (we currently have 2 cats and 1 older dog), and she always has excellent pet advise. She is versitle and flexible. She gives our pets love, attention, and when necessary, shots and other medications. When we go away for a weekend or a week, we enjoy ourselves so much more knowing Nancy is caring for our "family" that has to stay behind.
I was very specific with the issue I wanted addressed with our German Shepard and Alex did not fail to deliver! He gave us solid answers and suggestions and truly knows his way with dogs. I wound not hesitate to use him in the future and highly recommend him as a trainer.
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 been taking my dogs to Karen for about 20 years. I have followed her to many different shops because I feel she does a great job grooming and giving my dogs care and love when she has them at her place She has groomed 8 dogs of mine and I have nothing but praise for her skills. She is a wonderful person, a masterful groomer and a great trainer. I now go to Karen's own shop in Shelton and this is about 40 miles each way about every 6 weeks but I wouldn't take my furbabies to anyone else for their grooming or training needs. My boys and I love this superb person that has a heart of gold and a brain full of knowledge. Thank you Karen 💁🐶🐶🐶
Nikki is awesome! I have 2 dogs, one is older and the other is just under two years old. Neither is out of control or major nuisance, but there was room for improvement. The younger one is leery of people and a bit skittish. At our first meeting the young walked up to Nikki and allowed herself to be pet and she was at ease. We are just about a month into training and all is going well. The dogs have responded well to the training and I've seen significant improvement.
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!
Jolene is AMAZING as a Dog Helper/Sitter! She TRULY has a NATURAL GIFT for DOGS! She is also EXTREMELY CARING and COMPASSIONATE towards them! I would HONESTLY RECOMMEND her to ANYONE!
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.
I am a certified dog trainer. I am a graduate of the animal behavioral college. I have had my own business since 2007.
