“David Roy helped us with dog training and also pet sitting. He was unbelievably professional and easy to deal with. The personal touch he uses with our dog as well as his customer service is in my opinion unmatched. When our dog was lost he went out to help us look for him without our asking. That is the type of person he is. David Roy’s services are above and beyond what you can ever expect. “
“Dog Lover’s Family Training helped us tremendously with our Golden Retriever “Riley”. Beyond teaching us how to focus him on commands and control his exuberance, Dave worked hard with my two kids to get Riley focused on listening to them as well as myself and my wife. David’s training knowledge and expertise has made a huge difference in the relationship we have with Riley. Thanks for all the help.”
