Sample Reviews


I had just got a rat terrier puppy from the shelter and things were not going well between him and my older dog. Even if they were getting on fine I would have called
to help me train the pup, based on the reviews I had read. I called
on Sunday, at my wits end and he said he could come over the following day. He told me what to do and not to do when he turned up.
took time to look at the food and treats I was feeding my dogs to ensure they were getting proper nutrition. Then he spent time with each dog individually and showed me some effective ways to train and command the attention of my dogs. Everything he said made complete sense. After he left, I had 2 calm dogs snoozing beside me!
gave us lots of homework and he gave me the confidence to give my dogs the guidance that they need. I look forward to working with him further!

is a lovely person who seems to like all dogs. She interacted well with both of mine. I was truly hoping to find someone who would just take my puppy, train her and bring her home! Most don't do that at all and the one that did, I could not afford! But,
was patient with my lack of ability and explained everything thoroughly letting me ask any question I came up with. She taught me a game to teach the puppy to come when called and that is also going well. Obviously I have faith in her as we will start on my older dog this week. He is neurotic and getting worse so hopefully she'll be able to help with that as well. It's more work than I wanted, but it will be worth it if I can have 2 happy, well trained dogs! I highly recommend her.

Dog Training reviews in Bristol


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.
I could not believe it when
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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

, I know I will have an even more loveable pup and not a mini-terror.

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

We had sessions with
Bristol 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
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for both private training and group lessons. Our dog had some issues revolving around anxiety.
Bristol 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

. I'm most impressed with
Bristol 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.

Bristol 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
Bristol 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
Bristol 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:
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
trains dogs and owners for the animal to
Bristol 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
Bristol 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
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and her partner,
Bristol 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

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
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and we set up an appointment.

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.

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
Bristol 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
Bristol Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to someone, she has been great with our guy, and we are very pleased at his progress.
