John and his pack were AWESOME !!!! Thank you so much for letting Shotzie join you for a couple of days. John was flexible which was great because our plans changed a couple of times. Thank you, thank you !!
Outstanding. Was in a pinch and John saved the day. Took great care of my dog, sent me photos and kept me updated throughout his stay. Will use again!

I have been training dogs on the Monterey Peninsula for 10 years. I am a Multi-Certified Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA, CTDI, NAODI) with a membership in both the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors and the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.
I am a proud parent of three wonderful dogs: 2 Aussies, Mia and Quinn, and a Border Collie, Zeke.
Because of my experience as a trainer, I know ...
What John would like to know about your dog
All I ask of your dog is to be friendly. Or at least accepting of other dogs in the house. I have 3 dogs total in my house at all times. They are herding breeds, but once your dog is in the house for a little while they don't act like herding breeds - they are fairly calm and easy-going. They are very accepting and welcoming to new dogs too.
All I'd need to know about your dog is if they would be ok around my dogs. If that's the case, any dog is welcome!
I DO use crates sometimes. It just depends on the dog, how trustworthy they are in the house, and if I feel comfortable with leaving them out if I have to leave for training for an hour or two. It’s a perk if they’re crate trained, but not necessary. I have PLENTY of crates at my house, but if your dog likes his/her crate, feel free to bring theirs. I just require you bring their own food. That’s all :)
