Kari from Critters is absolutely amazing. She is matter of fact, patient, and intuitive. She was able to "read" our dog, a stubborn 200 pound Newfoundland, and interpreted small signs that indicated why he was unwilling to go in the car. In less than 45 minutes, she had him going in and out. Half of the battle is undoubtedly training the dog owners, and she did that, too, with grace, patience, and professionalism. Really great service, worth much more than we paid.
I am very happy so far. Cynthia has the patience of saint. I am looking forward to working with her in training my dog.
We have seen great improvement with our puppy thanks to Molly, our Great Dane has been leash reactive and would not listen to us when there were other dogs around. she has shown huge improvement and we are very happy with the training that both we and our dog received. I totally recommend her services.
She took great care of my dog Gilly
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.
Haley is wonderful! My new shelter dog is so, so anxious and we were lost before Haley. She has given us the tools to help him adjust and train him into becoming the family dog he wants to be. She is respectful and sensitive to him and our family. I would recommend her to anyone!!
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!
I feel I need to chime in on Kendra's innate ability with boarding animals. To say Kendra is good with pets is an understatement. Kendra goes the extra mile with each creature she comes in contact with; she has an animal rescue kit in her van just in case she comes across an animal in need! A few summers ago, I had a temporary job take me out of state for a month and couldn't take my cat with me. Frantically, I tried to think of a caregiver who would put up with my temperamental feline friend. My cat is not really a "people cat" and prefers not to be touched by anyone other than me; I was truly panicked about finding a place for her. Somehow my kitty was relaxed and at ease while purring and sitting on Kendra's lap only within a few short minutes of reaching the house (not something I have ever seen). Needless to say, all of my worries were put at ease immediately. If your loved one needs a place to stay, look no further! Kendra's compassion, openness and knowledge of dogs, cats, and other furry or feathered friends will amaze you.
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.
Was very prompt in setting up an in home demo and we feel confident in their skills!
I broke my leg a while back and have been unable to get my very active dog out for exercise. I found out about Linda on this website and have been extremely happy with her abilities. Linda is one of the friendliest people I have ever met and absolutely loves dogs. She has been walking my dog for almost 2 months now and my dog worships her. He anxiously awaits her arrival on those special days and they always have great walks. She is also quick to note when he wants to play and gladly accommodates him. I would highly recommend Linda for anyone who is interested in this type of service.
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!
Kristin has been my dog walker on two separate occasions each for a period of 2-3 months, she has very special way with dogs having them obey her with a gentle hand. My dog goes absolutely ballistic joy when Kristin arrives, Kristin is on time and often stays longer to help with a specific behavior we are trying to teach. She carries water and all sorts of things she made me during the walk. You could have a better person to trust with your pet.
I love to walk dogs and have worked at home ward bound
