Prompt response from Thumbtack, to dog trainers and the one I've booked with, Critters, seems to be first rate. We haven't had our first session yet so will respond later. but happy to have found this trainer through your service.
I hired Cynthia as my dog trainer for several reasons. She got back to me right away, she was reasonably priced, she had great reviews, she has worked with a lot of German Shepherds, and she comes to my home. She has been here twice and is teaching me how to train my dog. She is patient, kind, and really knows her business. She is always encouraging, never impatient or unkind. I am looking forward to more lessons and I plan to take my dog to her for a two week stay so that she can really get my girl going in the right direction. Keesha is somewhat fearful so I feel that for Cynthia to be able work her magic she needs to have Keesha close by on a daily bases.
Molly Wong came today and after just an hour and a half I knew she was the perfect trainer. Our dog responded very quickly and we learned so much that we can immediately put into our daily routine. I'm very grateful.
very pleased with her service. She is knowledgeable and professional. my dog has responded to the techniques she taught us and we are very happy with the result!
Our experience working with Jamie to help train our dogs has been excellent. She involves the entire family and worked very well helping our kids work with the dogs. Her approach and techniques have been very effective with our dogs, especially our rescue. We highly recommend Jamie for any dog training assistance and will continue to have her work with our family for future dog training.
I would recommend Brenda for dog training. Her rates are very reasonable and she does the fair thing if time adjustments are needed. Brenda was patient and accommodating to our schedules. We'll be using her again as our puppy continues to grow and needs follow-up lessons or advanced lessons. Our puppy loves Brenda and gets very excited to see her when she comes for training. It was a win-win for us. Thanks Brenda!
Nicole was amazing! We only had a few days with her and she taught us everything she possibly could. She was assertive with our pup and help us do the same. My husband did the sessions with me and while he practiced with our dog, I practiced with Flynn, Nicole's well trained Australian Shepherd. That proved to best way for us to learn as we were both able to be active. Watching her with her dog provided a great example to us if what we were training our dog to do. Nicole was patient and very helpful. He repeated herself often and encouraged us to take notes to ensure that we grasped every concept she taught us. Our 6 month old puppy is doing great! He walks well on a leash and obeys commands like come, sit, down, stay, and heel. We are now practicing of leash training and with Nicole's help he is doing great! I would recommend her to anyone who has adopted a dog of any age.
Kymber began working with our dog Otis a couple months ago. Before meeting Kymber, Otis was extremely timid and lacked much confidence around other dogs. These personality traits definitely impacted his obedience in the house as well. Throughout our training, we worked on creating environments that would allow Otis to gain confidence and let his true personality shine. The result has been a much more confident, obedient, and happy dog. We could not be happier with the progress Otis has made and would recommend Kymber to any dog owner who needs some training help.
Gail is a tremendous pleasure to work with. Her empathy, compassion and love for animals is transparent in the bond she shares with them. At the time, I first met Gail my dog, Sadie, was having mobility issues. Sadie responded to Gails massage therapy with more energy & vitality in her daily activities. She was always excited to see her come through the front door of our home and relished the love & care she received from her tender touch.
I think she is a fantastic trainer everything and more I could ask for. Her knowledge and kind nature is a perfect fit for my Mini Aussie and myself I am so pleased and took some of her business cards to pass out I highly recommend her
My wife and I found Jeff at the sportsmen show earlier this year. We carefully explained to Jeff that I have had many dogs in the past but had always wanted a proffesionaly trained retiever. I explained I was adamant about the limited use of shock collar and a dog focused on hunting from a boat. Jeff said he focused on my concerns and the type of hunting I wanted a partner for. Jeff took my 90 lb over weight dog and returned to me a 70 lb dog that was all about hunting. After working her for two months I asked Jeff for some help with advanced tactics that I was struggling with, he provided me with advice that I found invaluable in completing my dogs training. After this season I intend to use Jeff's facility for another week of his proffesional training help to give closure to any new tactics I may want to add to my dogs abilities. Both Heather (Jeff's wife) and Jeff provide a environment that was easy for my dog to acclimate too and quickly be ready to meet the challenge given her.
Gail has been very professional. She has walked our sometimes stubborn and hard to manage Dalmatian for several months. She even takes pictures to let us see our dog when he takes a walk. She has given us advice about how to calm our dog for his separation anxiety and even given us a collar to help with his whining and barking. I cannot say enough about the level of professionalim and passion she has for animals. Hire her, she will take care of your animals with love, compassion and kindness like they are her own. Highly Recommended!
Bringing our Shiba inu to Holly was the best thing we ever did. We were at our wits end and didn't know what to do with her aggression. Holly took her in and treated her like her own with love and she has never been better! She listens, places, sits, comes, everything. We can have her around company and finally a real part of our family. Wouldn't have made it without Holly. She kept is updated and assured that she was greatly cared for when we did to want to let her go, well my boyfriend. :) best trainer out there! Do what's best for your family!!
dog and cat Sat. did what she needed to dogs and cats are happy

I love dogs, and I love animals that are happy and excited to have a friend. I love being active, and because I live where I can't have animals, I found a way to make sure I can put that love to others who need it. My service starts at 10 dollars and up for any kind of service you're looking for. Thank you!
I'm currently a senior at Mountain View High School, but I'm finishing my requirements through running start at Clark College. I only attend classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I have a lot of free time! I've been seeking employment to occupy myself. I have a huge heart for animals, and it never occurred to me that I could do something I love and make a little bit of cash while doing it! I would be able to walk, exercise and play with your dogs. I love being very active myself, and being able to do that with animals just makes it all the more fun! I can also provide pet sitting when needed.
