My dude Colt learning some ecollar obedience to help his owners better communicate what they want from him and to dial down some of his reactivity in the front yard. Colt had two bite incidents when his owner called. He excelled during his training and now all that’s left is to apply those skills...

Claws and Effect is absolutely the best ever. Alana came when my vet was not doing nail trimming during COVID and still comes regularly. She is amazing with our dogs and they are so happy to see her when she comes for their trim. I would highly recommend them to everyone in need of the services they offer. They go above and beyond for their clients Thank You!!!!

Alana & Katherine are awesome. They send pics/video of their visit. It really gives me peace of mind when I have to go out of state. My cats like hiding under my covers when they hear strange/new noises/voices. They’ve started warming up to them during their third visit.

I would highly recommend Claws and Effect without a doubt. Our vets wouldn’t accommodate us because “nail trims aren’t necessary” at this time. Unfortunately my dogs nails had gotten out of control, but Alana came out and was amazing with both of my old girls. She walked me through everything she was doing while she was trimming their nails and was able to schedule us again in two weeks. Both of my girls can be a bit hesitant with new people, but they warmed right up to Alana in the short time she was with them. Thank you so much for making things a bit easier for Ellah and Maggie, as well as myself!
