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.

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!!!

We have used the services of Bark to Basics for the past 2 years with our very active Sheltie, starting when he was a puppy. Melissa and her team have provided everything from training, to boarding, to dog walking, and we have always been very happy with the quality of services provided; they go out of their way to accommodate our schedule and our needs. Our Sheltie is treated well and comes home happy from any time spent with the Bark to Basics staff. We highly recommend them.

Connie has been great to work with. She really knows her stuff and has worked tirelessly with our been extremely stubborn dog. She spent over an hour in our first meeting going over every issue we wanted to work on and we made a plan to work on each of them. Our dog has made huge improvements in the time she's worked with Connie and I think even more importantly we have learned how to continue working with our dog to get the results we're looking for. I would highly recommend working with Connie.

Jeanne is incredible!!! This is the first time I have hired a dog walker and I can say that I will for sure call her whenever I need help with my dog in the future. She sends updates and photos after each visit, which helped me feel comfortable about being gone. I could not have asked for a better experience and my dog loves her!!

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.

I first met Wendy through the City of Laguna Niguel dog training classes and she has been in our lives ever since. Her commanding personality and love for all dogs makes her the perfect dog trainer. Not to mention she picks up and delivers our dog when we need to go out of town! Penny is always excited about her time with Wendy and the other dogs and returns better behaved after a weekend with Wendy!!!

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.

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.

Heather was very accommodating and understanding. She joined with us when expressing our frustrations with our dogs' behavior issues and was patient but firm when showing us how to correct some of the issues. Heather reassured us that progress will happen if we are consistent and provided easy to do exercises with our dogs. We look forward to working with her next weekend!

Lynn and Jared are absolutely WONDERFUL!!! They truly love animals and it really shows. We have used them for years now and each time we feel comfortable, confident and rest assured that our furry bunch will be well taken care of. We have 4 dogs and 4 cats and all of them love, love, love Lynn and Jared very much. They get a ton of love and attention and are all very happy and healthy upon our return. Lynn and Jared treat all of our pets as if they were their own. Other petsitters charge in 30-minute increments and only stay for the time you pay for. Lynn and Jared stay as long as needed to get everything done and to make sure everyone gets a lot of attention. They make sure the house is cleaner than they found it, which is truly appreciated. They clean the dog waste in the backyard and keep the litter boxes nice and clean. They leave detailed notes on each visit and what each pet was up to. They bring in the mail and take out the trash on trash day to keep up the appearance that people are still home. They do not charge extra for giving medication, getting the mail, watering plants, etc., as many others do. All of that is included in their already very reasonable prices. Their contractor Amanda is also WONDERFUL. She is very sweet and hard working as well. She has the same love for animals as Lynn and Jared, treating ours as if her own. Our animals all love her too. Amanda holds the same values, principles and hard work ethic that the owners have established as the foundation for their business and it really shows in her work and dedication. She also makes sure that the pets are happy and healthy and the house is clean and orderly. I couldn't thank all of them enough for everything they do for our furry bunch... and with 8 animals that is truly an amazing feat! I would highly recommend Truly TLC Pet Sitting.

Tricia is the consummate in-home dog sitter and dog walker. My husband and I, and our two adult Rhodesian Ridgebacks, easily give her five stars. We have used Tricia for multiple in-home overnight pet sits of a few days each and were very pleased. We came home to dogs that were happy, well-exercised, extremely well cared for, and a house that was in perfect order. Each day that we were gone, Tricia communicated with us by sending pictures of the dogs and a short message about their activities. As a result, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing that our dogs, and our house, were in excellent hands. Rhodesians, even well trained ones, are large, active dogs but Tricia handles them perfectly.

I walk the dog for at least 15 minutes. If the pet needs to be fed, that will be accomplished. Your pet is in good hands and will receive the attention it needs.
