KYM IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MY DOG AND I BOTH;SHE IS AWESOME! SHE KNOWS HER STUFF AND IS VERY KIND!Frida is my first dog & considered by some a "problem breed".I rescued her mother & siblings & found then all homes...except Frida, I chose her from the litter.Years before meeting Kym, I read up a bit. I did some things right for my puppy! Icrate trained her, and took her to puppy classes. She was easily potty trained, and trained not to bark, chew or nibble on fingers. She learned to sit, stay, fetch, and high five. She is very loyal& sweet and once scared off an intruder who came in through my kitchen window at night!!!! I thought everything was great. Frida always had a big yard, a bed inside, and always seemed happy. At about 6 years old, we moved to a smaller place. Frida had a dog run &we played often but @ 65 lbs, she needed to go on walks. I then realized what a naughty human I had been. Frida was totally unsocialized, she tugged on her leash, would nip if strangers tried to pet her, disliked children, and refused to come when I called her. She liked to chase motorcycles..skate boards, trucks, & cats.....oh my!I had inadvertently conditioned her to be a yard guard dog. ...with very poor social skills and bad manners. Total nightmare @ the park!I became so worried about her running off and her seemingly aggressive behavior, our walks became very stressful. I felt guilty and stressed!I tried a few trainers who suggested choke chains and various techniques until KYM RESCUED US!!!!! She convinced me to bring my 6 year old dog to puppy classes. I always say Kym trained me and my dog responded quickly. She didn't let me waste anymore time feeling worried our stressed. She was kind, patient, and well informed. It became a simple matter of me learning to understand my dogs needs and behavior. Frida comes when called, doesn't chase cars, and has even spent time at doggy day care with other dogs!!!!! She's even nice to the cable guy! Yet, I'm still confident Frida would stave off any intruders!Kym trained us both well!! I have my sweet best buddy back with more play options than ever! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KYM FOR ANY DOGGY NEEDS YOU MAY HAVE!!!!
She's my baby sister, so I might be biased. but I also have a giant furbaby at home and he just isnt my dog he's my dude. Sarah is kind, patient, and absolutely loves furkids. So if you need to have someone watch your 4 legged kids while you go. Please give her a shot!
Just Four Paws watched my 7 year old cat for a few days when we went out of town. They did a great job! They came consistently at the same time everyday. Took pictures and wrote progress reports. We were very happy with them, and felt very comfortable with them caring for our cat while we were away. Lori was our cat sitters name, she went above and beyond.
Kim and Lori were fantastic. Lori came out with Kim (the one who would be staying overnight) to meet my dogs. I was very impressed when they brought toys for them. Kim was great with my dogs as well as taking care of my house. I received daily texts and pictures of the dogs which relieved any anxiety I had about leaving the dogs. My vet is in Orange County but Lori recommended a vet close by which reassured me that if there happened to be an emergency everything would be handled. I also appreciate the fact that they are licensed and bonded, just another reassurance. I am very happy with the services Coco and Boo provided for my fur babies. Kim treated my dogs like they were her own. I could tell how much they liked her when she returned the house key once I got home. I will be using them again when I go out of town.
I left town for three weeks and have never had a pet sitter before. She took amazing care of my two cats and I came home to a clean apartment! Thanks Kelly!
Tracie took care of my cat and pet rat for a week while I was out of town. Both critters happy and healthy when I returned. Would definitely use again.
Wendy did an amazing job with my dog Buddy. He had separation anxiety so bad we could not leave the house. We sent him for a board and train and Wendy's training gave him confidence -- his separation anxiety is gone! A lot of things I didn't even realize were bad behaviors have corrected themselves. A big part of the training involves continuing the work Wendy does when the dog is back at home. We've followed her instructions and could not be more pleased. It would reccomend Wendy without reservation!
We are so glad we picked Jenny as our dog pet sitter! She took care of our dog for 4 days while we were traveling. She was very attentive and kind with our boy and was always sending pictures and messages. Which helped us to see how he was doing. One thing that really amazed us is that our dog was trained in portuguese and Jenny learned somethings just so he could understand her better! Our dog was very happy under Jenny's care and that's the most important part for us. We sure recommend her services.

I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.
Lisa and Jeremy have been our dog walker and pet sitter for 4 years now and have been dependable and reliable with our dog daisy and two cats, scooter and sunny boy, with all of the traveling that we do. We have nothing but positive things to say about Lisa, Jeremy and Happy Paws!
Jen did an amazing job watching our dogs while we were alway for 10 days. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Jeanne is always a great pet sitter for our little guy!!! I highly recommend her services!!!
I found Jennifer Moser to be a very reliable, dependable person who takes her job seriously, which fit my expectations perfectly. I own a sweet but highly energetic Border Collie. Since I work long hours, I'm unable to provide her with the daily exercise she requires. I found Jennifer's listing on Thumbtack and immediately contacted her. She responds to every call or text promptly, which I love. We met at my home, and she met my dog. Penny liked Jennifer right away. Jennifer was gentle with my dog which I liked. Jennifer is intelligent and on top of things, and has been extremely helpful to me. She gives you a feeling that no job is too small or unimportant if its what you need. Having help in caring for my dog is important to me. Jennifer contacts me when she arrives at my home and again when she returns from their walk. Since she began exercising Penny, I've noticed that my dog is a lot calmer when I get home at night and her energy is a lot less frantic than it used to be. I know hiring Jennifer in this capacity was the right decision for us. Her rates are reasonable and to know my dog is benefiting is a great relief to me. I love Jennifer's website page, check it out. Its so cool to know there is someone out there I can trust in my home and with my precious pet. Many thanks to Jennifer for saving Penny and me, and thanks to Thumbtack for bringing Ms. Jennifer Moser to me.
This was our first time hiring a cat sitter so my husband & I could go out of town for 2 nights. Kayla did a great job of feeding them, cleaning out their litter boxes , and even playing with one of them. (The other cat is too shy so he hid most of the time, but he was well-cared for.) I left her a list of instructions which she conscientiously followed. I appreciated that she took the time to try to bond with them & make them feel comfortable. She also texted me with a couple of questions & gave me an update on how they were doing. So the next time we go on vacation we will hire her again knowing that our cats will be in good hands.
Best dog sitters ever!! They treat my Jimmy like he is their own. I et photos while I am gone, they are extremely responsive, and they are just great people in general. I have used them several times and would not go anywhere else!
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.
Daily dog care and training for multiple dogs. Total reliability is important to me because I work far from home. Loving the dogs is important, too.
Have not yet had the experience of working with Tracy's Dog Sitting. But just through communicating with her on line she seems like someone I would feel comfortable with leaving my beloved animal in her care.
I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!
I could not ask for a better pet service and my dogs love them. I have used them for over a year for daily walks. They provide cute daily reports that I love. And most importantly, my dogs love them!
