Paula has made such a huge impact on our family. Our dog Blue was barking at people, barking at dogs, running away and generally didn't seem happy. Typically one of our kids would accidentally let him out and this created a cycle of anxiety, stress and embarrassment as we couldn't get him back. he ran around the neighborhood barking at people, barking at dogs and chasing cars, not to mention running from us as we frantically tried to get him back. This created a lot of stress in our busy family of six. We love our dog but didn't see how anyone could change him. Paula came in and she didn't just "train" our dog. She works with our dog of course, but also has been educating our entire family on how to play, teach, and interact with Blue. She has provided us with so much insight and has given us countless tools to use with Blue. We have been working with Paula for almost two months now and the changes we've seen in our dog are incredible. We now have ways to play with him, and interact with him that are changing his behaviors. It's truly like he is a changed dog. Paula is compassionate, caring and has been a true blessing to our dog and our entire family.
Very friendly, thorough, and professional. After a less than optimal experience on Thumbtack the last time I hired someone to watch my dog, Just Four Paws was exactly the service I was looking for. Slightly more costly than others, but worth the peace of mind to know your dog is in conscientious, professional hands.
Excellent service !! Unfortunately my dog just passed away but the owner and one of her employees came by and did a meet and greet before taking care of my dog while I was out of country and they gave him a toy that he kept near by till his last day..
I'm very happy with Dog Walker Woof Woof. I absolutely adore Dog Walker Woof Woof, as do my cat and dog. The owner is extremely organized and the sitters are wonderfully affectionate and take perfect care of my pets when I'm away. As a bonus, my house gets cared for so that it does not appear as though I'm on vacation. In short, I don't worry about a thing while I'm away. I trust them with my pup who is like my child and would highly recommend Dog Walker Woof Woof!!!
I went out of town for a little over a week and needed someone to provide care for my cat. Elese was very responsive and professional. She was also very accommodating when coordinating the drop off of my key. My cat seems very happy in the daily reports I revived. I will most definitely be using Happy Paws again!
Maggie was my trainer in SF until she broke my heart and relocated to San Diego. I really enjoyed our time together as she incorporated things I like to do (Pilates, strength training) into my routine while making sure I never got bored. She also made me do things I don't like (running, stairs) to make sure that my workout was well rounded. I also had never worked out outside before (and didn't think I would like it) and found out that it could be very enjoyable.
Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.
Jennifer O. March 12, 2017 VERIFIED STAY Trina has been checking in on my pups while we're at school and work and has been very patient with my dogs who tend to be very leery of new people. She sends me a report on how it went each day, putting my mind at ease and is making progress with my little ones, which I'm sure isn't easy. I really appreciate having her as our doggie-sitter. ============================= Laura D. February 1, 2017 VERIFIED STAY We're so glad we found Trina! With three dogs and a cat, it's been hard to find quality in-house pet care in Vallejo, but Trina was wonderful. We felt completely at ease having her stay in our home and the animals clearly think she's the best. We are certain we will be using Trina again in the future. ============================== Susan F. December 19, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina did a home visit for our older hound. He is a lover, but can be very picky when it comes to eating. Trina spent lots of time with him and even got him to eat! She spent the extra time to clean up after him, and wrote us a lovely note detailing how he did with her while we were gone. We feel very comfortable using Trina, and look forward to using her in the future. ============================== Teresa B. July 21, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina was a wonderful help when I went on vacation and had no one to watch my two shiba inus. She was prompt and very professional in responding. Very accommodating with regards to my dogs needs as well as mine. She was very sweet to my two little children when meeting them. The dogs were in good spirits upon my return and I could tell they were well cared for. I appreciate that she let me know each time she was at the house, and it was exactly what we agreed on. She also brought in my mail and ensured the house was intact, in addition the house was how I left it upon my return. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing care for their animals and I will be calling on her again! Thank you Trina. ================================ Ben S. July 19, 2016 VERIFIED STAY Trina is WONDERFUL! We left our two dogs with Trina to be sat for two nights while we went Rafting & Camping, and then to an event in San Francisco the next day. The dogs ABSOLUTELY loved her! She has a 10 year old Boxer named Max, and Cash, my partners tiny little 5lb. Chihuahua, hung with his new buddy on Trina's living room couch. Tilly, my 12lb. Jack/Pom mix adores Trina as well, and loves going on walks with Max. PERFECT SITUATION for us -- Trina lives about 2 minutes away from us, and she also agreed to take the dogs again last minute for another night the following weekend, while we go kayaking. She's a lovely person, and is VERY thorough, and VERY responsive to her clients needs, both human and canine. I HIGHLY recommended her and her services.
Pam and the Dogs got along instantly, She is very professional and really loves her business.
Very friendly and good with animals
They washed groomed and watched my dog while I was busy getting other tasks finished. They were friendly and my dog was happy and adorable.
I am so excited I found Vivien. My dog loves her and I feel so much more relaxed knowing she is in great, capable loving hands.
I walk and feed dogs. I am available pretty much all the time during the day. I love dogs, so this is a pleasurable job to have.
I enjoy walking my own dog or any other dogs. In general, I love dogs. I love playing with them and walking them.
Wag! enables dog owners to track their dog being walked live on a GPS map right from their phone! After each walk, the dog owner gets a report card of how many miles and minutes your dog walked, along with a photo from the walk!
Please allow me to add more later, ok?????????????
