Saint Paul Pet Sitters Reviews

"This was an excellent experience for me and my dogs. I adopted 2 rescue dogs within 4 days of each other, neither of which had any training at all. When I realized that I could barely manage walking the dogs together, I called
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
who came to my house to help me develop a plan of action. She did some spot training which was very helpful for the short term and she recommended "dog boot camp" which i immediately signed up for. "Boot camp" involved 4 weeks of training, 5 days a week. I dropped off the dogs in the morning and picked them up after work so the dogs not only received intensive training but were looked after all day. The trainer,
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, who was masterful with the dogs. He was calm, patient, firm and affectionate with the dogs and very creative with techniques. He accomplished amazing things with them and did a great job explaining to me what the dogs had learned each day and how to follow up and continue the work. As a result of the training, the dogs now follow all the necessary commands and walk on each side of me without pulling.

transformed their behavior and I could not be happier with the success.

also inspired confidence in me and I know who to contact in future if issues come up or if I have questions. The staff at the training center was friendly and helpful. I loved taking the dogs to camp every day and the training was worth every penny!

"It was not a good experience overall. Although the trainer seemed very nice and pleasant, as stated above there were some rude points in the conversation and she seemed to be unwilling to listen closely to the issues that our dog was having. She also seemed to be uncertain how to resolve his issues and really only just kept reiterating what we already knew, that the dog has separation anxiety and possessive problems. I would not recommend this company, even though it is much less expensive than other trainers in the Twin Cities."

"I had just adopted a rescue dog and I started obedience training a couple of weeks later.
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was very caring and understanding of my needs throughout the 6 weeks of training. The facility is great--very clean and tidy. I am about to start my second level of training next week."

"We have a
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
that started puppy training with Canine Coach. Our
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
started as early as 4 months. He was our first puppy and we did not know a lot about training. For puppy classes we attended Crystal's training. Signing up for classes were easy. We signed up for classes online. Before the class, we were emailed a syllabus on what to expect each week. The classes were for an hour per week. For the puppy classes, there were 4 puppies total all of different sizes and breeds which made it seem more intimate. For the puppy class it seemed like there were more lecture time than actually practicing with the dog how to sit, down, come during the class. But perhaps since it was a puppy class, we were being taught that puppies need to learn to sit still and control himself while there are outside distractions. We learned how to do a "quiet hold" and that has helped us tremendously. We also were taught how we can provide our puppy with mental stimulation. The last puppy class the dogs were finally able to
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
each other and have some play time. Crystal was always available for questions before/during/after class as well as in email. For obedience I and II, we had
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. She was fantastic and always made your dog feel special. Before class she greeted each dog. There were about 6-8 puppies for these class, and it was still very intimate and very engaging. We were impressed by her training and energy. Her class consisted 1st of the theory behind the training, then showing example of the training, and then trying it out and then taking what we learned and practicing it at home.
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was always available to answer questions and show you how to put on a walking harness or prong collar. Canine Coach do a great job. On the very first day of class, our puppy was very shy and fearful to be approached, by the last class of obedience level II he wants to meet every person and dog on the street. He is happy to be petted and greets by people, kids, and other dogs with pure enjoyment. We thoroughly enjoyed attending all the classes. We have seen the progress and it feels rewarding when we see our puppy balanced and our friends and family notice his calm demeanor as well. We now look for forward to agility classes!

"Brought the dogs in for bird and gun introduction. The dogs did great and loved it at the kennel. Brought them back a month later for full obedience and hunting training. The dogs were gone for three months. J.J. and
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
were great. They were able to work with our older dog who was a bit gun-shy so that by the time we picked him up, he was completely okay with the sound of gunfire. They were also able to train our younger dog to retrieve (even though
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
are not known for their retrieving skills). We were very impressed with the obedience work and it will be a pleasure having the dogs in our house without having them jump on guests, eat food off the counter, etc. My husband thinks that the hunting training was worth every penny and I think that the obedience training was worth every penny, so we are both happy!

"The behavioral tips were excellent. The walking part is still very difficult. One of us had trouble executing the steps he taught us. The steps work, but we are not as adept at them as
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is. I think he was frustrated with us. Also,
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
showed up on time for the first visit, but was an hour late for the second one. It took a week or so after that to get a new appointment. We kept trying to call him, but couldn't reach him. I finally reached him by email."

"I ordered a complete fencing system for our new dog,
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(golden retriever).
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
came by on 2/22/05, & did a great job going over all the different packages that they have to offer & what we would need for our new dog. We purchased the system & also extra training to get your dog trained on the use of the system. Grete
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was that trainer & she was worth the price of system itself. Grete helped
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
& I get used to the fence, &
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has since been able to enjoy our yard without the worry on our part of getting lost.

"Tcotc was recommended by my vet. I have two
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
terrier puppies who are brothers and were getting harder to control. We enrolled them both in tcotc's level 1 class. We have been very happy with the training they received. The trainers seem very knowledgable and are always available after class for personal help. We have since enrolled our older dog in the classes."
A
"All three of our instructors were very willing to help with any of our special needs. Instructors were helpful in helping us catch up if we had to miss a class. Classes started on time, facility was very clean, participants were respectful of each other and all the dogs. Homework sheets are helpful to refer back to when we slip back to some old behavior problems."
A
"The trainers,

&
Saint Paul Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, that conduct this course are very good at their job. They were very helpful in instructing me as the trainer as well as my dog. Their approach of clicker training with positive reinforcement has delivered results!"
