Looking for that piece of mind about your pet when at work or on vacation? Look no more! Claws and Effect is truly the right choice for your pet. Alana and Katherine took great care of my 2 dogs. The attention, love and comfort they gave was genuine. The updates and pictures sent during and after their visits was appreciated and informative. Make the call or send an email you will be happy you chose Claws and Effect Maria P.

Katherine is amazing! She came to our home and worked with our 3 year old Yorkie and showed us what to do to help her separation anxiety. Our girl is improving so much. Thank you Katherine for everything!! If you are looking for a dog trainer who is knowledgeable and who really cares, call Claws and Effect!

Claws and Effect, Inc. was recommended to us to help with a barking problem we HAD with our 16 month old male Maltese, who loved to bark out the window at everything; other dogs, people, squirrels, blowing leaves, whatever. Katherine came to our house and explained and demonstrated what we need to do. We practiced a couple of times and after she left, to our surprise, he did not bark the rest of the night. Then, day 2, 3 and 4 - still no incessant barking. We are very, very pleased. Thanks for being there, Katherine!

Two Friends, One Goal

It has been said that, “the greatest gift of life is a friendship.” As two individuals who have maintained a strong bond for the last 18 years, we can attest to this revelation. We’ve learned, we’ve laughed, loved. We’ve cried, we’ve struggled, and laughed some more. We have experienced so much as a partnership, and continue to learn and grow and laugh as much as humanly possible. Most importantly, however, we’ve learned to communicate with each other and with our loved ones. Whether we cry tears of joy or tears of sorrow, communication has proven to be one of the most important healing mechanisms that would encourage us to unveil what our passion truly was; providing care to your faithful companions.
For the last several years, we have learned what it takes to deliver the comfort of knowing that our client’s pets are being handled with care and compassion. We recognize how difficult it is to leave your animals alone, and in the care of someone else. The sense of vulnerability during these times can sometimes become unbearable. That is what makes our ability to communicate with you so comforting.
In addition, the ability to communicate with your dog is inherently one of the most vital attributes to maintaining structure within that relationship; because, let’s be honest, we all want healthy and happy relationships with our dogs. We will work with you to provide the skills and knowledge you will need in order to be successful in this relationship.
This unique approach to pet-care merges traditional pet sitting with the option of enriching the life of your companion through obedience and balanced training methods.
Enjoy the peace of mind knowing your pet is in good company. Whether they have four legs, wings, fins or claws, always remember the effect communication has on the way you live life with your pets.
Claws and Effect: The principle of pets.
Alana Petruso & Katherine Galbo
President & Vice President of Claws and Effect Inc.
