What Clients Say About Pawsitive Pets, LLC

  • Both Hilary and Patrick have worked with my beagle. They are extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and experienced - and have a special way with dogs! Patrick worked with me and Cassie, my beagle puppy, on her recall. He taught us BOTH (especially me) some excellent techniques to use for good performance. I highly recommend this these two amazing people and their business!

    Nancy F
  • You guys are great! Hilary, you were wonderful with my buddy, Baxter! You really are amazing! Baxter loved you!

    Rita S
  • I trust Patrick with my animals, and I try very hard to follow his example and learn everything I can from him because it will benefit my little family. We love Patrick!

    Sue R
  • The caring, knowledgeable, professional people who have been providing almost daily visits for my cat, dog, and -- most importantly -- my young puppy (McGwire, Hugh, and Leo) are prompt and reliable . . . I highly recommend (Pawsitive Pets)!

    Jill E
  • Greatest relationship you'll develop through your animals ever. I trust Pawsitive Pets more than anyone to have a positive impact with my pets.

    MC C
  • Thanks to Patrick, I am now able to walk my dog, Hank, without being pulled everywhere. Hank is a big bloodhound and weighs over 100 pounds. Patrick has taught him to walk at my side, wait at street corners, leave it, and walk past distractions without pulling. Dog walking is now a fun part of my day.

    Carol M
  • We have had Patrick care for Rowdy when we have been out of town and especially appreciate our daily emails from Patrick detailing his day. We would highly recommend his service.

    Linda F
  • Congratulations on opening your business. We have been very pleased with the great training Patrick Holland has provided our puppy, my husband Rick and I. He has gone to great lengths to help our anxious White German Shepard, Otis. While we were on Spring Break he went to the kennel and worked with him every day. I'm glad to say that Otis is much calmer and we are better doggy parents!

    Jenna T
  • Pat is very knowledgeable and has great experience handling dogs at any and every stage. He is friendly, professional, and educates his clients on how to continue to promote positive behavior long term in your furry friends!

    Lauren E
  • Wow! Patrick has been so great to work with! Maddie is really excited to see him when he arrives and her habits and behavior improvements are very obvious. We were looking for someone to help us get her outside during our longer work days. To have someone consistently training her at the same time, was an awesome find! He's great to work with, super friendly and has a sense of humor.

    Eunice W
  • I am so happy with my experiences at Pawsitive Pets. Shay has benefited so much from their training. Her walks with them are the highlight of week. She even lets them clip her nails with no fuss. They are professional and simply superb!

    Judy C
  • I contacted Pawsitive Pets because my puppy wouldn't listen to me and pulled when I tried to go on walks. Patrick helped me train her to be more calm and now I am able to go on walks with her and apply the training aspects I learned. I learned just as much as Ruby!
