Pilar Garrido has been in the world of companion animals for many years and, despite everything she knows, she continues always studying and update herself in the world of canine, feline and other pets behavior, she is very good in litle birds training them with clicker. She is very generous with her knowledge and a great colleague that I often ask advice.
For Pilar: “Happy to meet you professionally, the Feline groomers in Spain needs you. A big hug, champion, grateful for all the knowledge.”
I met Pilar Garrido through a cousin who does the same job as her. I started following her and found that we both have passion for the Maltese. She is always ready to give advice and help with her knowledge. In everything I saw, she shows the chemistry that she has with the animals that she works with. That is working on what she loves. I wish her the best, many successes. Kisses.
We have known Pilar for several years, every time she has come to visit our refuge, we have been surprised by her empathy, love and connection with animals. She always comes and helps us whenever she can.
Exceptional lover of animals and their care. Highly qualified to carry out the care and dedication of them. All hers “little” hers are part of a great family that would not be possible without her. Always selfless only for their own good. Indefatigable fighter where there is abuse. In a few hands I would leave one of the animals I had, but with it my little ones would be on a par with me. Keep it up, you do a great job. Fantastic job.!!!”
We contacted Pilar because we had some problems at home. Our cat Puça began to urinate everywhere and we did not know what was happening to her. Pilar treated us very kindly, and, always looking for the origin of the problem, she gave us some guidelines that helped us a lot to understand what was happening to Puça and in what way we could give her a hand. She worked perfectly! We recommend this great professional for any consultation in the animal world, she shows that she feels passion for what she does and the results are obvious. Thank you very much for your help!
Pilar teaches you to see life like a dog and think as they do, it is vital to reach an understanding, observe them and know at all times what they are wanting to say and transmit to us. She is patient, loving, attentive, explains things very well and always applies positive reinforcement !!! 100% recommendable without a doubt. She did an excellent job with a dog that we were rescued from the street and that they considered irrecoverable with its aggressiveness and mistrust of people. Then she helped us with several more strong breed dogs rescued from the kennel or the street, including a Rottweiler, and with a Mastiff cross, which she helped us choose in the kennel, advised us with her training and socialization and that she worked with the elderly and children as a therapy dog in addition to later being able to help us with it to rehabilitate other dogs.
Pilar is a walking Bible of the canine world in different aspects, an expert in behavior modification, handling, breeding, hairdressing, with extensive training and puts immense love in everything she does. Without a doubt, a professional and excellent person !! !
I admire her work and knowledge that she give us and above all her friendship … she is a sensitive and sincere person.
