Ginger is less than thrilled about her first lesson... I told her parents all of her secrets!

This is chewy. Chewy is a 9 month old GSD. He may look like could not be bothered by training, but in fact, he is practicing being calm on his place, which in his case, is this entire couch. Chewy you are one lucky duck. He’s got some general obedience issues as any other young gsd might. Jumping...

You guys remember Scout the black lab puppy?! He’s not so little anymore! Watching our clients grow up into loving, happy pets is one of our favorite parts of the “job” 🤗 #dogwalking #petsitting #clawsandeffect #theprincipleofpets

And a happy new year to you, too, Bandit, the poutiest beabull of them all. Just kidding bandit isn’t being pouty, he’s just being obedient and handsome during our lesson!

Merry Christmas from the Claws + Effect family! Wishing you all a merry and bright day. As bright as little Opie’s Rudolph nose!

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.

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!
