Teddy is everyone’s best friend while Bella tends to lean towards the “fight” portion of her natural instincts. She will bark incessantly at guests and even charge at them after they have been relaxed...

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 absolutely love having Claws and Effect take care of my pup. He's a gimpy old senior who has different needs and they were happy to modify their care to ensure my boy was well cared for. I used them for dog walking, and they always followed up with a report and photo. And to add icing to the cake, they're a local, woman led business. My boy loves them and gives them 2 paws up!

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.

Dog Training Starter Package: $225
Get the ball rolling with this starter package! This package includes three (approximately 3.5 hours) in-home, private lessons ($240 value).

Puppy Starter Package: $195
It's no secret puppies can be difficult and that they require a lot of time and attention. Whether you are simply looking for some direction, or truly feel in over your head, we'll help to lighten the load by teaching you how to communicate with your new addition.

Private Lessons: $80
Do you constantly find yourself struggling to get your dog to listen to you? Communication can be one of the most frustrating skills to master when it comes to your relationship with your dog. Learn how to become a better leader by implementing customized techniques deemed most effective by our trainer, Katherine Galbo. From basic obedience, to aggression cases, Katherine will work tirelessly to formulate a training regimen best equipped to satisfy you and your dog's needs.

Dog Sitting/Walking + Training: $65
What better way to enrich your dog's day than to provide a productive and fun learning experience while you're away? Let us visit with your dog for 10-15 minutes, and then get down to the nitty-gritty. Training will last from anywhere to 20-30 minutes after the initial visit. Each training session will be customized to suit you and your dog's needs. If you truly want the best for your dog, this package is for you. *Additional private lessons are recommended, but not required, though results will vary depending on your consistency and commitment to training.

Stay & Train: Call for consultation and pricing
Similar to board and trains but training is done in your home. Katherine comes to you over the course of a few weeks, each day to implement training. You are not required to be home when this training is done but will have a private lesson on the weekend to go over what was taught during that week.

Yard Clean Up: $45
For those who don't have time to waste picking up dog poop, or honestly just don't want to, let us do the dirty work! *Prices vary depending on how many dogs we're cleaning up after. *Special pricing for biweekly, monthly cleanups.
