Took my dog for grooming and they did a great job. Was alittle hesitate because they appear to be more into training. The groomer
did a great job and the business was very understanding that I was stuck in traffic and late to pick my dog up. Will use again.

We hired
&
to train our German Shepard,
when he was a puppy.
had many bad behaviors that we had fostered - barking, eating food off counters & plates, annoying guests at the door, chasing the UPS man, the list goes on! They came to our house for multiple in-home training sessions and transformed our unruly dog into a polite, easy going member of our family! Through their expertise we discovered that by allowing all the bad behavior, we were actually the problem, not
. He was just doing what he thought was his job - to be the Boss of our house. The
but so effective techniques that
&
use convinced
that he no longer needed to patrol our house. His behavior completely changed!
We hired
&
again this summer for additional help. I have 4 teenagers and particularly during summer it can be very chaotic at home. The kids are in and out all day long and a majority of the time they have friends over.
is smart and knows that distracted teenagers don't make very good trainers. I noticed some of his bad behaviors resurfacing.
&
advised that we try the remote collar. Now we are wondering why we didn't do this sooner!! Even in intense situations, it is easy for me to remind
about expected behavior. Within days of wearing the collar, we have not had to use anything but the pager button which is just a vibration. The collar is the perfect back-up to all the training
has received, I highly recommend it!
In addition to the training, we also board
with
&
every time we go out of town. It is priceless piece of mind for me to leave him knowing he is in good hands. Not only does he live in their house like family but he gets continuous "
&
Boot Camp" while we are away!
I highly recommend the services that
&
provide. Their training techniques work and they have a true compassion for dogs and their owners!

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
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to help me train the pup, based on the reviews I had read. I called
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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!
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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!

Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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,
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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.

I really enjoyed
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's friendly and professional manner. We got right down to training as soon as she walked in the door. She taught
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
immediately not to jump on people who walk in.
I could not believe it when
Federal Way 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
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
through positive reinforcement.
I liked
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's methods and we covered a lot in just a short period of time. I am looking forward to our next 3 visits. If I work diligently with
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, I know I will have an even more loveable pup and not a mini-terror.

was fantastic! He's very professional and obviously excellent with animals.
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
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
Federal Way 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
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for both private training and group lessons. Our dog had some issues revolving around anxiety.
Federal Way 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
Federal Way 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.

is the real deal.
My dog, Ecco, would attack other dogs indiscriminately on the street. Every walk was an exercise in avoiding land
Federal Way 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
Federal Way 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:
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
trains dogs and owners for the animal to
Federal Way 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
Federal Way 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
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and her partner,
Federal Way Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, enough for saving my relationship with this animal.
