is great! I love her style. She focuses on positive behavior training. She worked with my dogs on commands like, sit, stay, bed, off," come, find it, etc. We also worked on walking them. My puppy was very young but still learned a lot. I plan on having her work with them again soon. She was very affordable ( we bought a package deal). Also she was very informative and provided some great information (such as where to buy harness and how to get a discount on my puppy's Spay).

was amazing. I CANNOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH! I contacted her regarding our dog who had slowly become what seemed shy and/or aggressive" after we moved. She asked a ton of questions to get to know my dog and myself prior to making any suggestions. She gave me a few tips over the phone and then suggested the free evaluation. From there we decided to do a few 1:1 sessions to help train US on how to handle what was not aggression, but actually anxiety! We loved working with
so much, we signed up for the Basic Obedience class. All went phenomenal as expected and we plan on signing up for the intermediate class in the Spring. She is kind, intuitive, professional, experienced, extremely knowledgeable, and sincerely cares about you and your pup.

I contacted the provider about socialization and training classes for my 14 week old puppy. The provider's website indicates that the puppy classes are for dogs up to 5 months and that classes are limited to no more than 8 dogs. The provider was responsive during our email exchange and I decided to enroll in a class. I was under the impression this was a puppy class with socialization opportunities since this is the service that I contacted this provider for. The first class was an orientation session with no dogs and we completed paperwork. The second class was the first session with dogs and that is when I realized that the class size was more than 8 dogs and was a mixed class with adult dogs and adolescent dogs under 1 year old. All dogs in the class were also medium and large size breed dogs. Since there was a significant age/size difference between my 4 pound puppy and the other dogs, it resulted in my puppy and I having to be isolated in a gated off area. We were isolated in this area and my puppy had no other dogs with her to socialize with and I could neither hear what the provider was saying nor benefit from the training that was going on between the provider and the other dogs in the group. From my perspective, I paid money for my puppy and I to be isolated in a gate area by ourselves for an hour and we didn't learn anything. I feel very mislead as what I received is not the service I believed I was signing up for. I signed up for a puppy class but instead this turned out to be a mixed class with adult and adolescent dogs and no dogs that were age/size appropriate for my puppy. I signed up for what I thought was a small class limited to no more than 8 dogs but there were more than 8 dogs in the class. Finally, the logistics and circumstances result in no active learning on my part or my puppies part. I expressed my disappointment to the provider in person and a few days later followed up with an email further expressing my dissatisfaction with the situation. I asked for a refund but the provider refused. I am willing to pay the provider for the two sessions attended but requesting a prorated refund as the service provided is not as advertised to me. I haven't heard back from the provider regarding the prorated refund.

The salesperson was very professional, the installer was very good at his job, the owner missed a couple of appointments to train my dog, but we had nice conversations anyway..

I started taking classes because my dog would. Not. Listen. That has evolved into taking multiple classes because I actually LIKE my dog and she likes me. We want to do things together and there are many types of classes to take. Basic pet classes and puppy classes all the way through competition. I've had classes with all of the instructors at one point or another and like them all. Theyre all competent and are good teachers. Unlike other trainers, they don't train your dog FOR you. They teach you how to do it and the dog learns to listen to you. You play games with the dog so they think you (and learning) are fun. I recently got a new puppy and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. If I moved out of state I would still travel here for classes if it was possible. No complaints at ALL! The trainers are always reachable if you have questions or need advice. Your relationship with the instructor doesn't end when class ends.

came out on time, was very nice and professional and even stayed for an additional 30 minutes. Would definitely use their service. It does seem the method he was using at the time has caused my dog to stop jumping but additional work may be needed in the future.

The BEST!!!

The training session was well organized, fast paced, interesting, and fun for both dogs and handlers. In addition each dog and handler team received individualized instruction. The best instruction and training that I or my dogs have ever received has been out at

We left our dog
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
with JoJo over the Christmas holidays, while we were on vacation. We had previously checked with JoJo that he was ok with taking care of
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
over the holidays. He even charged us above his usual rate because of the holidays.
While we were on our vacation, JoJo admitted
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to the ER and within hours,
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
died.
While we can never be certain what exactly happened,
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's doctor looked at the ER report and told us that
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was deteriorating for a period of 48 hours and anyone who was taking care of him would have noticed visible signs.
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was diabetic and JoJo was trained by us to attend to his special needs (regular feeding, and twice a day insulin shots). We had prepared JoJo for the long stay in December by leaving
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
with him one night a week for the previous three months.
While we had some signs of JoJo's tardiness (he was always late to pick up
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and we were never sure if he fed
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
on time), we did not anticipate this sort of complete neglect.
During our vacation, JoJo had agreed to send us everyday updates and pictures of
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's stay, but he did not keep his word.
We are obviously devastated by
Ruskin Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's passing, but this post is not meant to be vengeful. We only want to caution pet parents and urge you to consider your decision carefully.
Since this incident, the pet sitting agency that JoJo was with has terminated his services with them.
