Dog Training reviews in Saint Louis

I'm just now writing a review, but we've been using
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for at least 5 years. When we lived closer, we used them frequently for daycare, but now we primarily use them for overnight boarding when we are out of town. We have recommended them to dozens of friends with dogs, who all use them, too.

I really love the cage-free (except for meal-time) environment. I love that they are staffed 24-7. I love that they don't nickel and dime for service that should be automatic like some other popular boarding facilities in the area. The people who work there seem to be genuine animal lovers. One of my dogs has significant health problems and lots of medication, and I never worry about them taking proper care of him.

We used their training services long ago (5 years?) with
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and it was great for awhile. They are a handful, and we should have kept up better on the training.

However, we are very unimpressed with their grooming services. We have used them probably 10 times, out of convenience when they were there for boarding. Our dogs were not properly brushed out prior to the bath so that any existing mats or tangles became much worse and were not taken care of after they were dry. And they often have cut them funny -- not following breed standards. I'm really not picky about such things, but I figure there is a dog-groomer's reference guide by breed they ought to have on hand to get the basic look/outline of the breed correct. If you have a breed with a very easy to care for coat (short hair) I'm sure they could do well enough with a
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
bath, but with a double-coated breed like mine, I have not been satisfied.

Grooming aside, we love
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and rest well knowing they are well cared for by caring and responsible staff. The prices have gotten tough to swallow, but I have yet to find a good alternative so I have no choice but to pay for the quality care I know I'll get there.

The person who
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was a single trainer. She gave us some great advice for our dog. She had a great helping hand in getting our dog well-behaved. She was on time for the job and was easy to communicate with. She was great with my dog and very perceptive. She was also good in assessing what?s going on in the house. I liked her services a lot and will use the same in future.

from our first meeting, it was apparent that Sandy was professional, competent, and very caring. Subsequent to the dog training, Sandy has boarded
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
in her home for additional training, and has brought other dogs to my yard to provide further socialization. I recommend her without any hesitation for positive, humane training.

This is the best money that you can ever spend to take your dog to a training class. It trains the person as much as it does the dog.

I had been struggling with behavior problems with my two dachshunds ever since I added the younger one -- now 1 year old -- to the mix in april 2005.
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
offers small classes (5 dogs, maximum) separated into large breeds and small breeds, at
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's pet shop in the central west end. Since my dogs were never properly "socialized", and would likely disrupt a group class, we agreed to have a private session in my home instead. She taught me a number of ways to get and keep my dogs' attention, and left me with personalized notes to help reinforce what had been taught, and she mailed additional information to me afterwards. While she worked directly with the dogs at the outset, she stressed the importance of me working with them. (after all, they need to
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
me, not
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. ) she observed me working with the dogs, and provided valuable, real-time feedback. We plan to schedule a follow-up visit in a few weeks to help get my dogs acclimated to people and other dogs.

This was the best thing we could have done. It was more beneficial for me, and my husband to learn how to handle a new puppy as much as it was for her. The instructors love the animals, and works hard to ensure that the owners don't take the responsibility of owning a puppy lightly. The instructors are hard on the owners to ensure that the puppies are exposed to new things, and are held accountable for their actions. You don't get to be a "softy" in one of these classes which only ensures a happy, healthy, well behaved animal.

This was a one-time, hour long class on 'stop jumping up'. It was taught by
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, one of two trainers on staff. She got the dog to respond almost immediately and was great with her. Most of the class was spent training me. She was understanding but direct. I've already signed up with her 8 week class sessions.

The people and the work they do are very good. Our old dog really liked the woman who came to the house to feed and walk her. This person "visited" with our dog a while each time she came to the house.
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
also did a great job with our other dog, who is more active, and it's better if he is not in the house all day. That dog stayed at their facility. I really like the dog trainer, also. Her instructions and explanations were clear and very helpful.

When we got our rescue dog we immediately brought her to
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for training. They were great and even though the training was suppose to be two weeks - they were not satisfied and had her come in for another week with no extra charge. Our dog behaves fantastic and truly doesn't need a leash! She loved going there so much during training that we now take her to daycamp at least once a week. She jumps out of the car and pushes the door open to let herself in. I can't say enough good things about
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and her staff. The facility is impressive also - rubber flooring so the dogs won't hurt themselves and soft astroturf in the yards so the dogs won't get muddy. When it is hot out they have little baby pools for the dogs to play in. We have used the boarding sservice also and feel very comfortable with her overnight (which was huge for me)!

We were so fortunate to have discovered
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and his wonderful company. From the first call, it was apparent that
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was direct and pleasant. He came to our house in a prompt and timely fashion and immediately set us at ease. He has a natural understanding of dogs - and people! - which made him a delight to work with. He gave us real, concrete things we could do right away to help our "special needs" dog and we have seen the difference right away. His rates were more than fair and in fact, we ended up spending less than I had expected. I would encourage anyone who wants to better understand their pet to consider working with
Saint Louis Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. He is a delight.
