When we first met
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
the confidence, experience and friendliness she exhibited won me over immediately. I had no experience with having a dog, much less training one.

was so efficient in recognizing my reservations and inexperience as well as Frizbee's ability to learn. She trained me as well as Frizbee and the results showed on the very first visit! One of the things I admired most about her expertise is her ability to understand the psychology of animals and what their mannerisms and behavior mean in the "dog world" as well as the human world. This was such an important role for me as I've always had a fear of dogs. I no longer have that fear because now I know how dogs react in different situations and how to read their body language. This is absolutely an amazing thing to learn!

was able to successfully meet every one of the goals I had set for training plus many more that I wasn't even aware of prior to our training sessions. I would recommend her for any/all training anyone could want. She is excellent in training skills and on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate her 100!! To top this off, she is funny, friendly, a pleasure to spend time with and a very nice person to know. By the way, I can now take my dog anywhere and know with absolute confidence he will be well behaved and accepted. What an accomplishment! Gaylen

's effort to help our situation amazed me. Within 2 minutes of talking with her we found out that she would be unable to physically train our dog, due to our location. She then spent over an hour on the phone with me offering training tips, training products and catalogues for us to review, and recommendations on where we could get help in our area, all free of charge. She had an immense knowledge of each category, and the information she gave us will be a big aid in moving forward with our dog's training.

takes the time to train my dog using only positive reinforcement. Although the sessions are one hour each, she typically spends longer than that at my house. She only counts the time she's working with the dog towards that one hour. When the dog needs a break, she gives him what he needs. All the animals love her and she is making fast progress with my dog. Highly recommended!

is incredibly patient, kind, and knowledgable. We have very skittish rescue dogs who are intelligent but never received training in their former homes. In just three visits our dogs are well on their way to being responsive, calm, good dog citizens.we signed up for very reasonably priced series of lessons, and we look forward to continued success.

Our 5 y/o female Border Collie had shown aggression on several occasions (particularly toward two friends of ours, joggers, and cyclists). One evening in our home she bit one of our guests. Besides were worried sick about our friend, we also feared the city we reside in would label our dog a "dangerous breed". At best she would have been quarantined at our cost for weeks with no human contact. At worst the city could have destroyed her.
I started researching dog behaviorists without much luck. I checked on Angie’s List and there were several listed. However, one I spoke with didn’t address the aggressive behavior to my satisfaction. Another never returned my call. I saw

’s listing and based on his great reviews I contacted him.

spent quite a bit of time on the phone with me as I explained our situation. Immediately he was confident he could correct the behavior. I asked about his fee and when he told me my jaw hit the floor! Without missing a beat
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
said “I charge this because I’m that good. You’ll notice a change in your dog after one session”. When my husband and I put the fee into perspective it was far less expensive than being sued by someone she may bite and having our baby put down. Also, as

pointed out our dog was not happy.
At our first session

established with her who was really the Alpha. She lost her mind trying to tell him “I’M the Alpha here”. She was growling, biting the chain link training collar, trying to bite
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(which she didn’t come close to being able to.). This dog was even doing Alligator “death rolls” trying to get away from him! After about 10 minutes she’d finally had enough and submitted. By the end of the session he had her sitting and heeling without a verbal command. The training is also for us. Behaviors we did thinking we were calming her were actually telling her “You’re a good doggie for acting this way”. We are only four sessions into the training and our ‘baby’ is already a different dog. When we’re out for a walk we no longer have cross the street whenever someone walks toward us. Nor do we need to brace ourselves whenever she sees a cyclist coming. On our third session
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
told me our dog was one of the toughest cases he’s ever had. Further confirmation of his expertise as a dog trainer.

came to our home and also met us at a park near to us to train our dog (and us) in non-aggressive leash-walking.
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked

taught us how to have clear communication with our dog, thus to alleviate her(and our) anxiety about what to do when other (scary,sometimes) dogs/situations may approach as we go for our daily walks. He told us and showed us the very specific moves and commands to use when training and walking our dog.
We feel very fortunate that
Richardson Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was the person selected to be our trainer , because he is the consummate maestro at his work.

, our dog is a happy pup now, and we are happy dog-folks.

was excellent, and it is a big help for her to come to your house.
She asks a lot of questions about the dogs temprement and behavior to get an understanding.first.
She showed us how to control our dog's barking, and to learn to "come" when called. She makes a lot of sense, and it is more training the owners to do things properly.
Money well spent.

came and in several meetings showed us how to establish dominance, leash walk, and trouble shoot any manor issues we had with the dogs. The dogs are almost 7 months old now and they are great. We get regular compliments on how our dogs are so relaxed and well behaved in public. We always let people know about

in Woburn is defintely a bargain compared to other daycare/boarding facilities and I'm pretty sure my dog is well taken care of when I've dropped her off for the day or night. She seems happy to have all the attention she gets there and they have reported that they all love her there. However, I do have a few concerns which will probably prevent from taking her back there again. In the two times I've recently boarded her there, the overwhelming odor of pet urine had completely inundated me when I went to drop her off. I've boarded at other PetSmarts before and this is the first location that has ever had any sort of odor, which tells me this particular location isn't clean. In addition, after one of my dog's stays she developed a skin infection and although in no way do I know that it is related to her stay at this location, she never had any problems prior and with the cleanliness issue it makes me wonder. Some draws back, due to the breed of dog I have (pitbull terrier)

's policy is not to let my dog into play group with other dogs while I know of many other daycare/boarding facilities that have no such policy. Also the dogs do not go outside to do their business but are taken to a "potty" room. Although I know both of these policies are to cover them for liability, there are better options to this. I'm kind of glad my dog isn't allowed to go into the play groups as I have observed these dogs seem completely bored. Despite packing 10-15 dogs into a tiny room, they barely play with each and simply are laying around the room. The attendant also only watches them and doesn't attempt to interact with the dogs at all. One last thing that is more of an inconvenience more than anything, on weekday mornings it is extremely busy dropping off first thing in the morning. I waited 25 minutes to check in one morning despite having a reservation due to them only having one associate working the hotel check in.
