Matt Caranante?s journey to becoming a dog trainer started, oddly enough, with bed bugs. While working as a handler for a bed-bug-sniffing beagle, he realized how powerful the relationship between dog and owner could be. He went on to rescue another dog, this time an abused beagle from a high-kill shelter, and the reward he felt from rehabilitating his pet made his next step clear: He enrolled in Animal Behavior College?s dog-training certificate program and founded Let's Play!
As a positive-reinforcement dog trainer, Matt brings out canines? best behavior by mixing work with fun activities that help channel their energy. He offers private, in-home sessions to disengage pups from remote controls, as well as group classes to work on basic obedience and manners. Matt also works on behavioral modification to solve common issues such as separation anxiety, dog aggression, and excessive barking.

The Canine Cure, LLC owner and trainer Mary Jean Alsina has spent years educating students. Her career began in a traditional classroom as a public-school teacher, honing her ability to relate to students and write the alphabet in perfect order. Eventually, she left the bells of public school behind to focus her teaching talents on furrier students, showing both pets and owners how to curb unwanted habits. Mary Jean prefers to keep both pup and parent comfortable during her sessions by hosting lessons in owners’ homes, where they feel relaxed.

Jaimie Reeder of Grooming By J Lynn has but one goal: to make each and every dog that sits on her grooming table look beautiful. From her station within Missy Moo's Pet Spa, she treats her furry charges to full pampering sessions, each of which includes a nail trim, ear cleaning, a bath, and a facial. Her facility has no cages, so waiting pups are free to roam. After each session, she outfits her canine clients with either a bow or bandana, depending on their personal preference.
