Tammy has been very helpful in socializing and training my young German Shephard. She is totally accommodating in addressing special requests - going to the dog park with us, assisting with introducing neighborhood dogs to my dog.
Marina has become an extension of our family, taking in our shy dog Ralphie and helping him feel comfortable and calm in her house. She takes Ralphie on playful walks, makes sure he is taken care of (treats?!), and is a gem to communicate with. We're so grateful to have connected on Thumbtack!
Debbie is AMAZING! She walks or takes my dogs to the dog park 2 times a week and shes amazing. My dogs LOVE her. I usually get text message updates or pictures and she is always so fast to respond via text! Couldn't do it without her!
Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!
Christina was great with my dog. They went on an hour walk and he came home and was ready for a nap. She made him a friend for life with treats. She will be coming back again this week.
Paul is great with dogs & cats! He walked my dog Kobe two to three times per week for six years. He's incredibly reliable, trustworthy & I highly recommend him for dog walking & pet sitting!
I am pleased that I selected Loving Paws when we went out of state for a week in July. Peggy did go above and beyond as others have said. She did a very thorough interview at our house in Martinez before we left. I felt we were leaving our 4 cats in good hands. Peggy texted me several times to let me know how things were going. She was willing to brush the cats (but we didn't know where the brush was). She brought over her boom box so they could have music 24/7. We also had her water our plants for an additional charge. She collected the mail as part of her pet care taking. She came once a day and scooped the boxes daily. During one extremely hot day, she came by twice at no extra charge. Loving Paws is not a cut rate operation. The cost was more than boarding our dog. But it was worth it to have peace of mind. Previous friends and other businesses were overwhelmed by our felines. One is a bully and one is quite elderly. They all came through just fine, as did the plants. A paws up to Loving Paws!
Angela is a fun, quirky lady who really cares about your pup. My little pupper, Rufus, needed a haircut badly, but I could not get an appointment this week or drop him off to his regular groomer in the Fillmore next week. Angela made a house call yesterday and lugged all her gear to my apartment to give my dog a bath and haircut. I offered to help her since she went out of her way and didn’t have her regular assistant with her (also, it would have taken forever!) and let me tell you, if “assistant” grooming is that hard I can only imagine how exhausting the actual grooming is! With me helping her it took a little over 2 hours and it’s not like she took breaks or dragged anything on – my dog, a 22 pound Shih-Poo - took about 2 hours and 25 minutes for: nails, ears, glands, bathing, blow drying and a haircut. She really gets in there and makes sure the paws are on point. She is meticulous in her method and takes the time to assess what the best course of action is for your dog’s haircut. She switches blades often, making sure that she can get rid of matted fur without compromising your dog’s look or safety. Angela was super caring with Rufus, much like how I act with him. I would definitely recommend her skills!
I had a meet & greet with Sonia yesterday; she brought her "pack" of dogs to meet my dog, who is sometimes aggressive toward other dogs. Sonia really seems to know her stuff, and gave me great advice on dealing with my dog!! And he behaved pretty well around all her dogs, thanks to her coaching! I was impressed!
Being away from home with work or travel and knowing that my animals are well cared for is an invaluable service. I am grateful to have Pam looking after my cats and dog. Her love and dedication to animals is apparent in her work. When I told her about a litter of feral kittens living in my back yard she lent me a trap and offered her assistance in trapping, handling them, and adopting them out.
Stella is great! She responded promptly to my advertisement and was very flexible in accommodating my pet care needs. She and her family are very pet friendly. Our pet loved their company and his stay with them. Throughout the boarding period Stella kept sending pictures to keep us posted about our pet. I will recommend her and also will hire her services again.
Dear Pet Owner, It is with extreme pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Laura Tait of Lauras Pet Services. I met Laura at a local dog park several years ago and since then she has cared for Milo (my Chihuahua/Terrier mix) many times. Laura is extremely responsible, dependable, and trustworthy. She has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. She is wonderfully patient and always loving towards Milo, who quickly became very comfortable around her. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. She has always listened intently to my instructions and is always willing to work with me to meet all of Milos needs. In addition to all the basic requirements, I completely trust her to administer medication and follow through with any special pet needs. When it comes to Milos health and well-being, I have complete confidence in her knowledge and judgment. Laura is an excellent communicator. She always does a great job of keeping me informed about how Milo is feeling and behaving. When I call, she often tells me about little, special moments in Milos day. She is very accommodating with changes in schedule, and I am always amazed at how quickly she returns my phone calls. She is very flexible and has never had to cancel on me. The longest time Laura cared for Milo was for 3 weeks this past June-July. The peace of mind we enjoy on our vacations knowing that Milo is being so lovingly cared for is invaluable. We are able to relax and enjoy the vacations we cant take Milo on knowing he is in the best hands. The happiness and contentment I see in Milo when we return is priceless. There is no one I would trust with any pet of mine more than Laura. She is a model caregiver, who truly cares for the welfare of all pets. Milo and I are happy to recommend Laura without qualification. I am confident that any pet owner would be fully satisfied with her services. Please feel free to call me if you would like a verbal confirmation of this letter. Dawn San Jose
Rachel is the best she walks my dogs but even better she makes sure they have fun when they're being walked. Rachel specializes in small groups and all the dogs get the attention they desperately need and deserve. Her specialty is taking the dogs to the beach and giving them a great day out on the town. I highly recommend Fog City Dog Walkers to anyone needing their dog exercised and taken out on an adventure instead of just on a walk around the block like the other dog walkers often do.

We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!
Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.
Angela was very good with mh dog.
Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!
The team at Small Paws Big Love was so accommodating and so understanding when we introduced them to our rather nervous mini dachshunds. They took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions to make sure everyone felt good about moving forward, and now our dogs love them! They are so responsive and also take care of the details when they see that something needs to be taken care of at home (ex: they notice when we forget to leave the radio on for the pups, and they'll turn it on). Love working with them and would highly recommend them!

We offer canine ambulation (dog walking services); however, we are not limited to just that. If you are out of town and need someone to stop by to feed and walk your pet or to sit them, this can be arranged. We treat each situation as unique as they are and will work out specific details and agreements with each customer.
