    Highly recommend Dakota Dogs, LLC
    Sue took care of our cats, Kira and Iggy, while we were on vacation. Both cats were happy and relaxed when we came home, so we know they had a nice week.

    Thank you Pam! Sue really enjoyed her visits with Kira and Iggy and loved their personalities. Kira was sweet and affectionate and greeted her at the door when she arrived and Iggy was curious and playful. We can't wait for the opportunity to see them again!

    Fantastic company
    They are fantastic to work with. Sue has been walking my puppy on a daily basis while I'm at work and Keegan loves her. Jodi has done a session of training with us and Keegan loves her too. Both Jodi and Sue have been so helpful to me and give me great advice. I love the daily pictures and update that I get. Jodi as the owner of the company has been very responsive in every inquiry I have had. She runs an excellent business all the way around. Highly recommend them! Five stars plus

    Thank you Lisa! It's been my pleasure to watch George grow from a silly little puppy to a super polite young dog. I appreciate your trust in Dakota's Dogs, and can't thank you enough for the referrals!

    Dakota's Dogs, LLC is a absolutely wonderful dog walking and training company. We have been using them since we first brought home our golden retriever puppy, Bailey, and have been so pleased with our experience! The daily emails with updates and pictures is the best part of my day! I love seeing how she is doing, and it is so comforting to know she is in great hands and getting the care she needs while we are at work. I would HIGHLY recommend this dog walking service to anyone looking for a compassionate and professional friend for their fur baby.
    Jodi D. Dec 9, 2015

    Thank you, Maria! Bailey is so much fun to work with and such a fast learner. (and she's pretty darn cute too!). We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to care for her!

    Thank you, Marcia! We love spending time with your adorable little sweethearts and sincerely appreciate your business!


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We initially discuss their needs over the phone and then do an in person meet and greet to go over specific details and any paperwork that is necessary to ensure proper pet care/walking services are provided during the client's absence. For training, the meet and greet helps us get to know the dog and develop a custom training plan to ensure the desired goals are met.
