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!
Shelley and my dog had a great time together and she sent me lots of pics!
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!
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!
I was truly satisfied with the boarding of my dogs. They made me feel comfortable and also were kind and loving to my dogs. I would recommend this company to all my friends and family. Wonderful job Krystal
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.
Yolanda is great with our puppy Stewie and visits him thrice a week. My schedule is sometimes unreliable and Yolanda has been very accommodating. Stewie initially could not go out on walks, before he got his vaccinations and Yolanda played him indoors instead. We are first time dog owners and Yolanda has been a godsend in helping us through this journey.
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
Pam watched our dog for a little over a week while my family and I traveled out of town. The overall experience was smooth and great. Pam was responsive, gave updates a couple times a day and immediately if we asked, and was flexible with pickup and drop off times. Our dog even stayed another unplanned night with no problem! I will use her services again in the future.
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!
Julie is a thoughtful and caring person who keeps the best interest of her clients in mind at all times. She is trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. I trust her with my three dogs and would not have it any other way!
Sylvette is part of the family already! Flexible with times, sweet, funny and she loves our Chappie as much as he loves her. Her walks are always varied and interesting and our dog gets great exercise working off his 1 1/2 yr old pent-up energy. When she first got Chappie, he was a shy young man, not at ease with other dogs. Now, thanks to her loving encouragement he's opened right up and now has made lots of other two-legged and four-legged friends. He runs to her when she gets here to pick him up and returns to us as happy as ever. She gives him love as if he were her own, keeps up our training/discipline regimen and only gives him delicious healthy treats and food. She's even watched him for a week while we were out of town. We've been through larger dog walking services and we will never go back. Longue Vie Sylvette!
Our German Shepherd , Jack, loves his time spent with Katerina and we always feels very comfortable and confident in how he will be taken care of ! Katerina is great to work with and her property is perfect for our pup to run around. Her kennels are clean , large, and comfortable even for our 90lb Jack. In the summer , Jack even got a nice cool down throughout the day (see pics) with the sprinklers :) .
I walk dogs of any type. Breed, age and size don't matter; your dogs will be in great hands with me. Talk to me about prices.
I love dogs, and I love walking. I want to make other people's lives easier and their pet's day more enjoyable!
Besides doing dog sitting, walking & my Real World Dog Training is by far result oriented training with different training methods. But most importantly I provide professional & service satisfaction, I'm a friendly down to earth person for me it's important to do business the right and fair way and build a long lasting relationship with my clients.
I love helping people and making their day better. I did a lot of voluntary assistant work before getting paid. My recent work I had was dog sitting and babysitting. You name it; I'll do it.
I go on dog walks all over San Fransico park. I take good care of dogs and make sure all the dogs are nice and fed, and I do much more.
I do most jobs, including pets from large to small. Whether it is a mid-day or alternating day walks to full vacations, I have the experience, including a veterinary medicine degree and do injections and recovery. I work with keeping your training in place and can add to what you are already doing. I work well with seniors and behavioral needs. I am an animal lover, and your pets' needs come first before anything else. Please check my website to read about my skills, education and praises from clients.
