I really enjoyed
's friendly and professional manner. We got right down to training as soon as she walked in the door. She taught
immediately not to jump on people who walk in....more /> I could not believe it when
ignored kleenex sitting on the floor right in front of her. She is a one-year-old pup and it is her great delight is to find paper and tear it to shreds. She learned right away not to do that with
through positive reinforcement.
I liked
's methods and we covered a lot in just a short period of time. I am looking forward to our next 3 visits. If I work diligently with
, I know I will have an even more loveable pup and not a mini-terror.

was fantastic! He's very professional and obviously excellent with animals.
provides great training for the dogs as well as the families to ensure the training continues after he's left. My daughter and I both learned a ton and
continues to be a wonderful student. We also decided to board
with
while on vacation for the "3-a-day" training. The results were even more impressive! I recommend
wholeheartedly!

We had sessions with
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
about every other week for several months at our home. We paid for 1 hour sessions, but they usually lasted longer. She taught us how to react to and give commands to our puppy and to follow through and be consistent. She was very patient with us and very patient and loving with our puppy. She watched us as we interacted with our dog and could see immediately what needed to be done. She would show us what to do, then verbally walk us through what we should do. We will have her back when we feel that we need some more help. We highly recommend her for training a dog and (mostly) the owners!

I contacted him via email, and filled out a questionnaire on line. He called me that afternoon and I made an appointment for the next week. He pulled up in the driveway, and called me. He had me put the dogs out back, then he came in and gave me instructions. He worked with us on every problem or question we had, 1 thing at a time. Great results. I can call him at any time for a review.

All of our experiences have been absolutely wonderful. We have worked with
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for both private training and group lessons. Our dog had some issues revolving around anxiety.
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
worked with us and gave us clear training techniques that I'm happy to say have rid of our dog's anxiety. She broke down what goes on in the dog world and in their minds, so that we understand the basics of training. Our dog is calm, happy, listens well, and fits with our family and schedule nicely thanks to
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. I'm most impressed with
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
because it's obvious she cares about our dog's well being and his progress. I very highly recommend Paws and Possibilities.

Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is the real deal.
My dog, Ecco, would attack other dogs indiscriminately on the street. Every walk was an exercise in avoiding land
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. If I saw a dog walking our way, I'd have to duck behind a parked car or walk to the other side of the street. Even then, Ecco would bark furiously at the animal across the street. I knew I had to do something, or I would simply end up hating this animal. It was that stressful.
I found
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list. She prepared me over the phone at first, she came prepared. Every session I had with her (I had 5), my dog learned something new and wonderful. She taught us all the basics (which, it turns out, are KEY to most behavioral issues). Heel, Sit/Stay, Down/Stay.
I would be remiss if I didn't make this very important thing clear:
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
trains dogs and owners for the animal to
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
under stress. This is not the kind of training where the dog sits for a bone reward. This is corrective-based training. I was nervous about it, at first. Until -- literally within minutes of her first working with him -- she would walk us right by dogs on the street, and I'll be damned if Ecco avoided the confrontation.
I think the most telling compliment I can give
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, is that she insists on my giving commands to Ecco while she tries to distract him. What I mean is, she puts us through the paces of a real-life stressful situation, so that the dog learns the obeying is not a negotiation. The dog focuses on me, not the external stimuli. Really really helpful.
I now purposefully walk Ecco among other dogs. And he behaves beautifully. I cannot thank
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and her partner,
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, enough for saving my relationship with this animal.

We have fun, loving two champion sired puppies. They are great except for that we have spoiled from the start. They jump over everyone as soon as door rings
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
are there ready to get all the attention and it was turning into a difficult situation. We knew from the start it was our fault and did not punish them. So I called
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and we set up an appointment.
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
came over and I thought he was going to either run away or say there is no hope. Within 10 min of him interacting with dogs I thought that I was out of it when our dogs started to listen and behave.
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
took his time and did a great job and we are so happy. Its so nice to be able to sit and watch Tv without our dogs jumping all over and walk out the door without them pushing threw.

It has gone very good, she has given us a lot of things to go by and we are doing really good with our little guy. We still have trouble with one thing and that is telling us when he needs to go out. He does not make mistakes in the house, because we know how to time his trips, however he barks at us and will not stop and
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
said to ignore that he just wants attention. We have done that and that does not work, he will continue to bark until we get up and walk to the door, and then it is sometimes a challenge to get him out. We usually go back and sit down and wait to see if he will come to us again, and it seems like a revolving door. I would definitely refer
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to someone, she has been great with our guy, and we are very pleased at his progress.

I hate being that person who yells and screams at their dog.
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is a very good lab/beagle but she jumps on people too much and she pulls when we go for walks. Not to mention she would bark WAY too much!!
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was the best trainer I could ever ask for!!! He not only broke
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
of her bad habits but he also showed and helped me to understand how to communicate to
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
what I wanted her to stop doing. He never seemed frustrated with me or with
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. And he always talked to me with patience and respect.
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
always showed up right on time, if not a little early. I feel the price was very admirable considering he changed me and
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's relationship for the better! I've never had a dog of my own before so everything is brand new to me.

I will definitely be calling
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
again in a few months to help me teach
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
some tricks!

When permitted to pick up our puppy,
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(head trainer) told us that Graceling "didn't try to please people". Based on how quickly Graceling learned from us, we immediately became suspicious. Walking into the facility, we noticed that the window screens - intact a month earlier when we dropped Graceling off - had claw
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
ripping them to shreds, as though dogs had been trying to get into the house from outside. When we asked
Colorado Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
about them he looked uncomfortable and changed the subject. When he finally let us see Graceling, a hand dropped to pet her ears came back dark with old earwax, and she had dried mud stuck inside her ears and between her paw pads. During the four weeks that she was at

's, Graceling acquired a double-ear infection, giardia, and a bladder infection.
