I take exceptional care of my furry friends and have many years of experience here in NYC working for pet sitting agencies and an animal shelter and now as an independent dog walker/trainer, and pet sitter. I’m reliable and honest and I pride myself on being accessible to my furries’ people and I love love love sending pics of our time together. I enjoy my animals and look forward to the time I spend with them. My dog walks are private unless we make other arrangements and I am the only one that takes care of my animals. I pride myself on being ethical to people and to my animals. If you are contacting me for behavior training please include what behavior it is you would like to address, I mostly do puppy training/behaviors.￼ Some trainings can be done in one session with homework - my cost for an initial session reflects that. If we decide to do a package or multiple sessions my pricing is different - I can assess in an initial session. I’m bonded and insured.

5 star all around! Adene has been incredibly caring, responsive and understanding of our dog and his needs. Great value and she truly has developed a relationship with our dog which makes us so happy!
Adene was absolutely fantastic with my German Shepherd who needed some help with leash training. She was able to help me better understand my dog and our walks have been significantly more enjoyable since our private lessons
Very reliable, professional, and great with our dogs!
I’m so thankful I came across Adene! She watched my two sweet kitties and was super diligent about texting daily photos of their whereabouts and even went so far as to let me know food could run out so I could deliver it in advance while I was out of town. She’s quick to respond and very personable and organized! Highly recommend! More...
What a life changer! We have a 95+ lb Weimaraner who is 100% stronger than me and my 6'4" 250lb husband. Before we met Adene, we could not walk him around the block without him quite literally dragging around. After one session, POOF! Instantaneously. He walks like a gentlemen. I honestly thought he was putting on an act for a stranger, but here we are two weeks later and our lives are changed forever. I wish I met her 2 years ago. Highly recommend! More...
My newly adopted Pitbull Cletus was a nightmare to walk on the leash. Every walk ended up in me saying I will never walk him again!
I am very glad I found Adene who taught me what to do. Her energy so calm and nice and I could see my dog change. It was such a great experience for me.
I now have better knowledge and confidence when I walk him. Thank you! More...
What great experience, this is my first dog and Adene made my life so much easier…I would highly recommend having her help you through the puppy stage
just had a less than 5 five minute…encounter with this person. i don’t even know how to describe it. incredibly rude. interrupted and laughed at us when we told her that we didn’t feel like our dog needed to be in a crate 4 hours a day. insisted that “this is training.” back and forth in a strange, hostile manner until I asked her to leave. my kids were getting scared. maybe she was having a bad day. if I could give her 0 stars I would.

Adene is phenomenal. We had a session on leash training. Adene gave us a completely new and loving perspective of our dog.
She was firm, patient, nurturing, responsive, knowledgeable, professional, organized, soothing, calming, loving, and just an amazing instructor. She empowered and taught our 8 year old son to walk our Pitador mix like a professional. We are so happy we met you. Adene checked in with us the next day. She gave us a totally different perspective and is giving our son Jackson a new outlook on life. Adene is much more than a dog whisperer, she is the essence of an educator.
Thanks 🙏 More...

I left a review of this "trainer" before which was somehow removed from the site as well as another negative review. Do not use this person. She is to scam as much money from you as possible. In the process we saw her twice and ended up spending $700. She did not return our deposit for "renting" a crate and pen. When we as to drop off this material, she flipped out and told us to send it by uber. It was clear she had spent our money or never intended to give it back. We left the material outside of her apartment and we still have not received our deposit back. She was rude and borderline off of center. Don't use her . I wonder if she has had friends add some of the positive reviews. More...
Adene is a miracle worker. She is incredibly kind and responsive and got back to us quickly/ jumped on a call to hear out what we needed help with and explained her approach. Before we met Adene, we couldn't get our 2.5 month old aussie to go into her crate/sleep through the night. The first day she showed us how to potty and crate train. That same night, our puppy slept in her crate without a hitch. She’s also continuously stayed in touch to check in on progress and give us pointers along the way. We are no doubt calling her back for more sessions and if you are looking for an absolutely incredible trainer, dont look anywhere else, Adene is the best there is! More...
I am not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. I hope they have been verified. We had a horrible experience with Aden. In retrospect it was clear she needed money and had no problem taking advantage of my family to get as much out of us on the first visit. She strongly suggested crate training and gave us good tips on using spray on the wee pads. But she suggested that the dog should eat, play, than go to sleep in the crate and could stay there up to four hours when older This is not our style. In addition she rented us a crate at $50 and a pen at $50 and asked for a hundred dollar deposit each. We went on line the next day and saw both for less on the Petsmart and other pet are websites making the $100 deposit ludicrous. It was at that point we were worried we were being taken advantage of by a woman who knew we were first time dog owners. Two weeks later I texted her and told her that we no longer needed the pen and crate and asked for our 200$ “Deposit” back. I cannot tell you what vitriol we received subsequent texts. She told us we were problematic, insulted my husband who drove her from the upper east side to our house and back the first time we met saying “he talked too much in the car.” She told us she “didn’t want to deal with either of us and gave us yet more vitriol around a pick up times for the crate and the kennel. She said she wouldn’t meet us at the door like we were threats. What this all came down to I believe is a desperation for money. She really wanted to keep the $200 after already gauging us on rental fees, the cost of potty training sprays. Her behavior was unstable, scary, and at points what some may call insane. Please stay away if you don’t want to be subject to mentally unstable behavior. It’s not worth it. More...

My name is Adene. Spelled just like that. Those positive, 5 star reviews are from happy clients that value the work I do. I am sitting at home waiting for you(Jason) to give me the things I lent you(you never showed up) and I get a notification that I got a review from a "Jason Jason". I had no idea who that is. Jennifer(your wife) hired me and it was Jennifer who I communicated with the majority of the time except for this review. I'm not even sure how Jason can leave a review since I've never interacted with him on the website but I guess that's allowable? And if this is Jason, when you write “your husband” who do you mean? I think maybe if you don't know how to have a puppy but also don't want to do what a trainer suggests, then either don't have a puppy or don't have a trainer? I understand you have issues with money - you could have bought those things anywhere(amazon, chewy, buy local), it was your choice to get those from me on the terms that I provided. Other people have borrowed them without a problem. This whole situation is probably the worst experience I've had on this site - most people I work with are happy to have me and the feeling is mutual. I regret taking you on as a client. The things you wrote in your review didn't happen. You could have just dropped off the things I lent your and I would have returned your deposit and that would have been it, instead you're insisting on making a bad situation worse. I hope Luna is ok, and that you figured out how to train her a way that you like.
Canceled the day-of. Very odd and left me very uncomfortable and scrambling for another sitter.

That didn't happen. I told you the day we met I wouldn't be able to catsit for you, your trip was far enough away so you could find another sitter(but is that what you were looking for, a cat sitter?) Just because I meet you doesn't mean I'm obligated to take you as a client. And, since this is what I do for a living, it's not in my best interest to not be able to take on a client. So there's that.
Adene is totally reliable and cares for our dog affectionately. She sends us daily pictures of him on his walks, gives him good training, and is an excellent communicator. We have been totally satisfied and would recommend her without any hesitation. More...
Adene is simply the best, I call her a dog whisperer. As a first time dog owner, I was pretty nervous about my ability to train a puppy. With Adene, not only did my puppy receive wonderful training, she also taught me a lot and helped me feel confident with my dog. During the training sessions I could see her dedication to her profession and her love of dogs. You can feel that she sincerely cares about your dog and the results are amazing. I would highly recommend Adene to anyone looking for quality training. More...
Adene is so wonderful! It was fun to walk in Central Park as a family with our 6 month old Bernedoodle, Roxy, for our lesson. Roxy is now so much calmer and comfortable during walks and we are forever thankful. More...
Adene has been walking my senior dog for several months, and I am thrilled that I found her. My dog was comfortable with her right away, and now I’ll even leave him with Adene when I’m gone for a weekend. She is dependable and kind, and I highly recommend her!! More...
Adene is great with our dog Bosco. She always sends pictures of their walks and you can tell she genuinely cares about him and his happiness. She is also willing to do the little extras I’ve asked for without hesitation. I would highly recommend her. More...
Wonderful job watching my two cats! She sent pictures every day and took great care of them while I was away. Very communicative and always kept me in the loop. Would absolutely recommend and use again. More...
Adene is an absolute rockstar and in just one session she helped our 4-month-old puppy, Sasha so much! Before we even booked our first appointment, Adene called me for an intro as well as gave me some advice on issues we'd been having with our pup such as constant barking and attention seeking behavior. She was incredibly accommodating and traveled to my home despite it being a little far from her primary work location. She brought such a calm and logical approach to training, and Sasha instantly fell in love with her. She listened to the issues we'd been having, and catered the session towards addressing those issues. Not only did Adene help train Sasha with basic commands, but she gave my partner and I the tools to continue her training after she left. She offered experienced and professional advice on where to put her crate and playpen, what to put in the crate with her, and how to approach behavior problems. It's been only a few days since our training session, but Sasha has already shown so much improvement, and we are so happy and so relieved! Overall, I would recommend Adene to anyone looking for dog training. She has a gift! More...
Adene is the best thing to happen to our dog, Coffee! Before Adene started working with us and Coffee, we had been self training Coffee but were struggling to get him to listen to us, particularly outdoors. During our 1x1 sessions, she not only worked on him but also trained us to approach Coffee's training differently. While we were focused on getting Coffee to listen to us outdoors, she had a very holistic approach and suggested several changes to make at home as well that made a drastic difference. She would always check in mid week between trainings and would offer us helpful feedback. Within 6 weeks, Coffee (and we!) was so well trained - beyond our expectations! His recall in public is great, he does much better at others houses and on trips, and is more calm at home. We highly recommend Adene! More...
Wonderful and professional service! As a first time puppy owner and family with a young child it was important to us that we had a professional and trustworthy trainer. Not only did we find that but we now have chosen Adene to be our dog walker as well! She was patient with us and listened to our customized needs as a family. Would highly recommend (and have!) to any pet family I know. We feel so lucky to have found her. More...
I hired Adene for 6 classes to train our new puppy. She was extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and patient. She made modifications to the training as needed depending on the pace that our puppy learned and mastered things. She was responsive to any questions I had at any time and would even check in between sessions. We covered crate training, wee wee pad training, basic commands, and training outside once our puppy had all his shots. Theo has done great with Adene’s tips and expertise, and we are all happy and adjusted. I highly recommend her services! More...
I am extremely happy and impressed with my sitter! She sent pictures and even watched my dog at her place. I will continue to use in the future and I truly recommend this for everyone!
My dog, Elton, and I had a great experience with Adene. As a first time dog owner, I needed someone who would not only train Elton but help guide and teach me through those Elton's first 8 weeks at home. Adene was patient, very knowledgeable, always took time to answer my questions, and followed up after every session to check in on me and Elton. I highly recommend working with Adene, especially for first time pet owners. More...
She was amazing! So helpful, accessible, and willing to help coach me through training outside our sessions. She's a great trainer, both for me and my puppy. With her help I was able to teach my puppy important commands (e.g. sit, come, stop). My puppy's also stopped biting (outside of teething), and will listen to me when we're walking in the park. I'm so grateful for her help. More...
On time, great commutator, and very attentive and loving with my dog, Apollo. Highly recommend!
She was very informative and friendly. I will have her back again for round 2
