I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.
Melissa is very accessible. Her and her staff have done an outstanding job with my dogs. I can rest assured my dogs are in great hands when Just Four Paws is walking my little guys.
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..
We only had two weeks to find a dog walking before leaving for 16 days. I used Thumbtack to get some leads. Meg, who owns Peace Love and Walks, responded immediately and we set up an appt. She came out to meet us and Molly. She was professional as well as friendly and helpful. Her price for walking is very competitive and fair. We really liked her background in working in veterinary clinics and her reviews of her dog walking. She and Molly hit it off right from the start. She came to our house every day we were gone and walked, fed, and played with Molly. She sent us emails and pictures of her walks with Molly which made us feel good about our choice of dog walker. Our trip was so much more enjoyable since we didn't have to worry about Molly while we were gone. I would 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.
Karin cared for my 2 1/2 year old dog for 2 weeks while I was out of the country. She kept me informed with texts and photos, relieving my anxiety over leaving him. Her family treated my dog like one of their family. He was a happy and healthy boycwhen I returned. I highly recommend her for anyone's sitting needs!
I have an older problem dog. She did a great job on him and at a good price.
Trisha has been very accommodating with all of my pet walking needs. My bulldog loves her!
I was very happy with Palina. She is a lovely person and was very good with my dogs. I would definitely hire her again to look after my dogs whether it be daily walks or overnight stay.
Valerie at Best Friends Pet & House Sitting Service did a great job walking and taking care of my doggies. My doggies loved her. I will definitely be hiring her again and would recommend her to my friends.
Ellen has been so great! My pets liked her immediately and didn't even bark at her. She takes my dog to the park for walks and visits with my cats. She has never missed a visit and she goes above and beyond her duties. If there is an accident, she handles it. She feeds everyone and takes care of the litter and even leaves me a log of what she has done for the day. She took out my trash and brought in my mail while I was gone and she is very trustworthy. I hope to have a long pet sitting relationship with her and our family :)
Krista has been walking and dog sitting for us for almost three years now. We have a 145lb mastiff and a 60lb Weimaraner. It is so nice knowing that during the week when we work all day our babies are getting exercise and bathroom breaks. It is worth every penny knowing that they aren't at home bored destroying the house. After every walk, Krista sends me pictures. We consider her apart of our family. She is the only one we trust with our dogs! So thankful we have found her. We are getting married this summer and Krista made it easy to plan our dream 3 week honeymoon. Knowing that she will be at our house and spending the night with them and walking them daily. I do not know what I would do without Krista from SoCal puppy paws.
