We have been using
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for the last 10 months after a recommendation from a good friend. We take our 16 month Golden Retriever to
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
at least once a week for "Dpggie Daycare" to play and socialize with other pups. (We started this when the winter weather was so horrible last winter 2014) We also have boarded our dog here at several times over the last 10 months for various lengths of stays. We have been thrilled with the level of care provided. Our dog loves going to play--there is no boarding "stress" here either when we have needed to board him overnight. In the past when I boarded my Goldens at other places (i.e, Kennels or vets) they would be so stressed when we got them home--and they needed to be groomed immediately. At

, our dog comes home in great condition. He has had ample daily play time over the weekend when we are gone--he has not been crated for lengthly periods of time alone. There are no crates! They have boarding "rooms" for each "guest". I highly recommend anyone who wants a great, positive, safe environment for your pet to try

The staff is terrific.
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and her staff take great care of each guest. Every person at

cares for our dog like it was their own pet! From

in the afternoon when I pick up my dog after a full day of play. They are very attentive to all the animals in their care. PLUS they post great photos all day long on Facebook. I get to see how happy my dog is and how well he is doing. It is a nice touch.
They also have very convenient hours for weekend pick-up from boarding! When we return home late on Sunday--we can still pick up our dog till 8PM. That's a real plus!
I would recommend taking your pet out for a "meet and

Their service has been fantastic. We love them. The main like I had is that it works. They really got to know our dog and met her where she was. In the end we got back a very well-trained dog. We liked the people a lot; they were great. The only dislike was the fact that it was kind of like a boot camp so we had to go out back every day, but it was worth it. But that was not them, that was the nature of going to a boot camp.

The first thing I'd like to say about Robina is during our initial phone call to inquire about her services she talked with my wife for about a half hour supplying some initial tips and advice. This was before anything was scheduled or she received any payment for services. That said a lot to us.
She explained to us how she usually does the in home sessions. An initial visit to teach/train and evaluate whether she felt the dog would need additional sessions. We ended up currenlty only need a ~90 minute visit. It was good to know that she gave us an honest take on how much training she felt Dash needed. That was great because some trainers want you to sign up for a minimum amount of sessions before they have even seen your dog.
Robina was very professional, gave us loads of information (verbal and written), answered all our questions we had and told us not to hesitate to reach out if we had more. We were very pleased with her services and would recommend her to all our friends.

My session with
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was simply amazing. I have a seven month maltese who is very cute, but very spoiled and defiant, and I needed help with the fundamentals. Since talking to
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
on the phone, it became clear just how passionate and experienced she is. She knew exactly what my puppy needed, and was quick to ascertain the challenges I was facing as well as their solutions. When she told me she could come to my home, give my puppy the individualized training I felt she needed, and would be successful in just one session, I was thrilled. It was exactly what I needed, and without the inconvenience of weeks of classes, yet so much more effective.

did more than live up to her promise- within the first thirty minutes my puppy was completely transformed. She truly has a gift with animals, and is great instructor. I feel so much more confident now when it comes to training, and her guidance left me feeling much more knowledgable and competent. I cannot praise

enough, she is simply the best of the best!

I decided to hire
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
about a month ago out of desperation. I have a 4 year old lab named
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
that I adopted a year ago. I have never been able to walk her on a leash. She would constantly pull me and go out of her mind every time a dog approached. It was so bad that other dog owners would go out of their way to avoid us. I tried a pinch collar, gentle leader, harnesses, you name it. Nothing worked. I honestly thought my dog would be the one that was untrainable. Boy, was I wrong!

and I had 12 sessions with

. We started walking
Lockport Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
on the leash in my backyard and worked our way out into the road, and finally to various
