"
helped me understand why my two dogs were sometimes uncomfortable with each other. It boiled down to a battle of seeking attention and jealousy." When the older, more dominate female felt she was deprived of attention that the younger dog was getting she would lash out and cause a fight.
explained ways of doling out attention and keeping them separate during larger family gatherings. He retrained us to understand the complexities pack behavior and limit the possibility of conflict.

is great. She and
came over to evaluate our dogs and by the end of the evaluation, we created a game plan and goal" for our dogs. She helped us learn how to read, handle and correct our two large dogs. Both dogs had different issues, one was overly excited, anxious, would jump on people and we couldn't walk with him because he pulled (he walked us). Our other dog wouldn't settle around guests, wouldn't walk without aggressive barking towards other people and dogs and was overall a high maintenance dog. She has corrected all issues and took her time with teaching us how to handle our dogs. She guarantees all of her work, working with you and your dog for as long as needed. She is constantly in communication through text messaging and phone calls which is great. We did most of the training at our home and other training was done in a local park or at Palisades Middle School. She always took her time with explaining things even when she had to explain it to me 8 different ways and 10 different times. And just as a side note: she is great with kids and our two year old loves her.

A great experience. She taught me as well as my dog! I went to her for basic training and some behavior issues I was having with
San Marcos Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. She truly is a trainer who understands and knows what makes them tick! Training works because like us, each dog is a individual, and a b c training might not work for every dog. She creates a plan to get results, and also taught me, what to do or not to do to show my dog what I wanted, expected from her. Once

They offer supplies and grooming services. When they first started, it was like taking your pet to a neighbor. They did dog training and answered all kinds of questions with whatever your pet concerns were. I buy my dog’s food from them and their pricing is very reasonable.

We hired
San Marcos Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to do basic obedience training for our puppy. We have been using him for 4 months so far and have been pleased with the progress he has made. He comes to our home each week at the appointed time for a 30 minute session. We chose to purchase the lifetime package, which means we can call him anytime in the future for additional training at not extra cost.
