"She is wonderful. I use her a lot for my dos. She is a pet professional as well as a K9 who helped train out dog to become such a loving family dog. I highly recommend" her. She spends a lot of time with the dogs. I like that she trains us, as the owners, before she trains the dogs. it helps us be apart of things and helped break our adopted dog from his bad behavior. She also does full lifetime training sessions and anyone to go to help reinforce continuance training.

"We have worked with
as a trainer for the last 10 years. Our 1st puppy had multiple behavior issues. At 2 months old, she would growl at" us when we would come close. She could never settle down and relax.
did a private session to help us work with her so she would be more relaxed and comfortable with us nearby. We also did basic puppy class and advanced puppy group sessions with our dog and
. We were able to enjoy 10 wonderful years with a well-trained happy dog due to
’s assistance. When we got our 2nd puppy last year, we knew there was no one else we wanted to work with other than
. She is very good at what she does and has a wealth of knowledge. She observes and provides helpful feedback on things we do right and also assists to correct the things we need help with. She always made training fun for us and the dog. For any issue or question, she works with us to make sure we understand. We did group sessions with this new puppy also and as always
was great to work with and continued to challenge us to do the best we can with the pup. When we got our 3rd puppy last week, we contacted her with questions on introductions to our existing dog and concerns for the new puppy’s possible separation issues.
responded immediately and was able to do a private session to help us. We now have our homework of things to work on with the fur kids and we look forward to group sessions with
and this little bundle of joy. We are also looking forward to doing some intro to agility with our older pup.

was a fantastic teacher. He laid out a very
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, but extensive plan for us and came every week motivated to help us teach our dog. The system he used gave us the framework to really teach our dog the obedience topics that we have always struggled with. He was always on time, very professional, and the benefit of doing the lessons in our own home just can't be beat. I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing dog training.

We contacted
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and I spoke to
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. She was professional and responsive. She assigned
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to watch our cats.
During my first meeting with
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
she seemed nice, but told me she didn't have much experience with cats. I showed her where we kept our cat carriers incase there was an emergency and she asked me why I was showing them to her. That made me a little nervous. She did say she would still stop by on Christmas if she could. I thought that was nice.
My parents checked on our cats twice while we were away. They had no food, so my parent refilled their bowl one of the days.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
emailed me when I was away and asked me if someone came to refill the cat bowls because they already had food when she came late one day. When we got back
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
left us the wrong keys and I asked her if she could bring me my keys. I told her when I would be home, but instead of knocking she left my keys outside my door with a post it note and some other keys that weren't mine. She said she would come back and pick up the rest of the keys. She never did and the keys are still sitting outside our front door.

Because we were having major work done on our house over the following few months, Meeko's training dwindled. I called
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
when the work on the house was finally done and told her that we needed her to come back. She came back last week and went over everything again showing us exactly when to do and how to respond to different situations that arise. We have been working with Meeko as
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
suggested and she is doing MUCH better. There was no charge for this return visit.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
gave us confidence and also let us know that she is always just a call or an email away.
Because it has been so cold, walks have become limited so
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
suggested that she come back again in April and practice outdoor walking with her there.
In just a few days, Meeko will wait by the door to go out and not try to leave until we say OK. She will sit and stay when the doorbell rings - although we need to keep training her to
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
jump up when we let people in the house. That said the difference is amazing.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is a wonderful trainer. She is kind and warm and understanding. And she LOVES dogs! I would recommend
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to anyone who wants to have their dogs behavior improved - she's absolutely GREAT!

I was a little skeptical having read about how hard
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
terriers are to train. But I decided to try their two week intense training. I dropped my dog off every morning and picked him up at night. They also have day care there so their were lots of dogs for him to play with when notin training. After the first week my dog was really starting to listen and do what I asked. They provided a private lesson with me and my dog. By the end of the second week not only was my dog fully trained but he had all the skills to pass the canine good citizen test. I was both surprised and pleased on how much my dog learned in such a short time.

We rescued a small mixed breed dog in November. After getting her home, we realized that she had some serious problems. Hysterical screaming barking at other dogs and people. We could not get her to settle and be quiet. We had a difficult time trying to read when she wanted to go "outside". We were successful most of the time. We were in trouble with this dog and new it. This was not our first dog...we've had Rhodesian Ridgebacks and a Beagel in the past as puppies and no difficulty. I
searched for dog trainers on line in the Cleveland area...most were either just group classes or guys with military experience training dogs. Pat offered a lot of choices on her web site. Puppy Training, Rescue Training, Behavioral Training, Group Classes,
Pack Training, and Canine Good Citizen classes. We emailed Pat and explained to her the problems our rescue was having. She asked us to call her to see if she could fix our issues over the phone. That was a nice no charge offer. We talked and decided to have Pat come to the house for our training sessions. The first session was over two hours and put us and our rescue on the right track. The remaining lessons always lasted longer that the scheduled hour. Our rescue learned to quiet after we let someone in the door, learned to play with visitors dogs, learned to walk and ignore other dogs. Our rescue can sit, stay, down, come, and wait when we open a door and go out or in first. Most of all no issues with going "outside". She loudly lets us know when it is time. She paid attentiuon to Pat and has us trained very well. Our rescue is a love, will chase and fetch a ball all day, loves to cuddle and is a welcome member of the famiy thanks to Pat.

I have 2 very large mastiff mix dogs and one was fixed while the other wasn't (boy and girl) and they recently started having aggression issues in addition to basic dog behavior issues like barking and charging at the door. I scheduled an in-home training session with
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
after he was recommended by my vet when I went to him to discuss the behavior concerns. I was really skeptical about a 1 visit dog training session being able to work because mastiffs are known to be a stubborn breed of dog, and only 1 visit was unbelievable. While I won't say that their behavior does not need work still, after 2 weeks the changes in their behavior is so drastic and surprising it's nothing short of spectacular and I do not regret a single penny of what I paid for the service. In addition to showing me the proper techniques for dog training,
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
also gave suggestions on their dog food, exercise, and some additional products that he was not trying to sell me but thought would benefit us better than similar products we already owned. The only additional product he even tried to sell me was only because he could offer me a discount over what the price would have been at a pet store so it was more of doing his clients a favor than him trying to be a salesman. I have recommended them to everyone I know!

It went extremely well.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
taught me and my husband how to behave like a pack leader in a way that makes sense to our dogs. We demonstrated a lot of the pack leader traits but it wasn't effectively communicated to our dogs by the way we were acting and it was sending mixed signals (which we didn't realize).
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
seems to genuinely care about our dogs and 3.5 hours went by quickly.
Since the training, our dogs behaviors changed noticeably and I am confident that as long as we act as pack leaders and instill the hierarchy to our dogs, they will continue to behave better. I would highly recommend it. $650 for two dogs was not a small investment but it was well worth every penny.

The quote was scheduled in the evening because we work day times , and
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was on time, uniformed and professional and personable. He played with our dog while we talked. He asked us how we heard about his company and we were actually referred by a friend, the rescue organization, and our veterinarian . With 3 people telling us about this
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
fence company , and 2 of them had bad experiences with another dog fence company, we thought this company would be a great option. The installation and follow up lessons for training were also worked around our busy schedule. They were very easy to work with and took the time needed, never making us feel like they were in a rush. We will recommend them to everyone.
