I was looking for a high-quality dog trainer for my new puppy and am so happy I found Claudia. The one-on-one sessions allow us to cover a lot of ground and move at our own pace. She is very patient with me as I learn all about my dog and her behaviors. She really gives you insight into dog psychology and behavior and I finally feel like my puppy and I are speaking the same language! After the first session, my puppy was already more responsive at home and a much better walker. Looking forward to learning more with Claudia.
Kim was very professional and really seems to understand dog behavior. She was not as harsh as some other behaviorists that I have worked with in the past. I am really excited to continue working with her!
Tim is highly professional and a wealth of knowledge I have had dogs my entire life, and yet learned more in the couple of hours we spent together than all that time. It was incredible to watch my dog respond to Tim. As he interacted with my dog he was able to explain the behavior I had been observing and probable causes. Many things FINALLY made sense after he explained them. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone.
Leslie has really made a difference in our dog's behavior. We are so pleased. She really knows how to handle dogs and teach us how to as well!
I couldn't be more pleased with the services provided by Cassidy! She is devoted to the care of animals. She is knowledgable and trustworthy. Gus, my Great Dane, loves to see her every time she comes over! I (and Gus) couldn't have been happier to have found her. Plus, she is very accommodating to my busy schedule.
Lynn is the kindest, most patient and warmhearted, knowledgeable, and flexible person to work with. She has an exceptional understanding of dogs and their behavior. During our initial evaluation, Lynn gave us a few pointers and our dogs were behaving better. I could not ask for a better person to "train" me in training my dogs.
She had a lot to offer for a reactive dog in the home. We have done other training prior to this visit. She was able to see the dog in her environment and showed me how to use the methods she used. She even offered follow up information and is interested in our progress.
We have followed Sarah to three barns! She is a amazing trainer/instructor! Relates well with the clients of all ages. My daughter has been with her since she was 9 and is currently 15. Sarah has become a mentor and friend of the family! She is as wonderful with the animals as she is with the clients. So glad to have her in our lives!
Poochped was a great help to me in understanding my dog's behavior. Would definitely recommend this service!
We worked with Sarah for 6 weeks with our dog, Diggie, on his visitor anxiety at our home. She was quick to diagnosis Diggie's issues and came every week ready with strategies and tools to help us. Sarah was always professional and knowledgable, answering all our questions, while still making us feel very comfortable with what we needed to do and providing us with feedback. After the 6 weeks, Diggie has come a long way, mastering basic commands that will help his anxiety and a plan to continue his progress. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who loves their dogs, but not their behaviors.
The dog was taken from a backyard breeder and had several social and behavioral issues. Jennifer did great with a unique and difficult situation. Worked well with everyone and helped the dog feel comfortable. Made many steps forward with the puppy.
I had never taken my "shy" dog to a daycare before and I was very nervous about how she would do. Tammy was excellent at sending me updates to help ease my worries. As I continued to take her to Tammy, she was able to help me unwrap some of my dogs behavior issues and better understand how she is trying to communicate with me. Tammy has helped me nurture an amazing relationship with my dog.
Nicole is an awesome animal caregiver she watched my furry animals. She does very well with scared and cautious animals I have one she knew exactly how to handle him. I was very sad to see her leave whoever gets Nicole to watch her animals would not be sorry I would recommend her to anyone she is the best!
In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She wont let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dogs individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. Shes reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. Shes genuine. She will make your dog shine.
Mary has watched our two dogs Dakota and Tucker numerous times and has stayed with them overnight. Mary has always been extremely reliable and enjoyed watching our dogs; she is very knowledgeable when it comes to animals behaviors. I totally trust Mary with our dogs and I highly recommend her to watch your animals. Mary is also always punctual and very communicative to let us know how our dogs behaved while we were away. Our older dog Dakota also has a mean streak every now and then that Mary knew how to handle and was extremely patient with Dakota for which our family is thankful.
Jennifer is a great trainer, very insightful in the ways that dogs think and feel. My dog and I have attended training classes before, but there were a few behaviors I wanted to work on. Working one on one and at home is great, as there are less distractions than working in a large class. In all a very positive experience for my dog and I; he gets rewarded for his good behavior and I'm less stressed because he's doing what I want him to do! Jennifer's positive reenforcement methods are easy to learn and work great!
We offer training classes for your dog, from puppy to adult. We've been training people and their dogs since 1946. I am a former army instructor.
I would love to help assist fellow dog owners to bridge that gap between master and pack member at an affordable price. To own and care for a dog is already expensive enough, so paying for a professional trainer is often discouraging and can lead to many outcomes including negative behavior in both dog and human, neglect, abandonment, stress in both dog and human etc. My goal is to eliminate anything blocking the natural connection between you and your canine companion.

We provide love and care for animals. We are looking for a part-time job for the upcoming holidays.
I babysit, walk, and clean your animals. Overnight sitting is okay with me. I can come to you or you're welcome to bring them to me as long as your animal is okay with children because I do babysit kids from time to time.
