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!
Debbie is AMAZING! She walks or takes my dogs to the dog park 2 times a week and shes amazing. My dogs LOVE her. I usually get text message updates or pictures and she is always so fast to respond via text! Couldn't do it without her!
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!
Paul is great with dogs & cats! He walked my dog Kobe two to three times per week for six years. He's incredibly reliable, trustworthy & I highly recommend him for dog walking & pet sitting!
I am pleased that I selected Loving Paws when we went out of state for a week in July. Peggy did go above and beyond as others have said. She did a very thorough interview at our house in Martinez before we left. I felt we were leaving our 4 cats in good hands. Peggy texted me several times to let me know how things were going. She was willing to brush the cats (but we didn't know where the brush was). She brought over her boom box so they could have music 24/7. We also had her water our plants for an additional charge. She collected the mail as part of her pet care taking. She came once a day and scooped the boxes daily. During one extremely hot day, she came by twice at no extra charge. Loving Paws is not a cut rate operation. The cost was more than boarding our dog. But it was worth it to have peace of mind. Previous friends and other businesses were overwhelmed by our felines. One is a bully and one is quite elderly. They all came through just fine, as did the plants. A paws up to Loving Paws!
Angela is a fun, quirky lady who really cares about your pup. My little pupper, Rufus, needed a haircut badly, but I could not get an appointment this week or drop him off to his regular groomer in the Fillmore next week. Angela made a house call yesterday and lugged all her gear to my apartment to give my dog a bath and haircut. I offered to help her since she went out of her way and didn’t have her regular assistant with her (also, it would have taken forever!) and let me tell you, if “assistant” grooming is that hard I can only imagine how exhausting the actual grooming is! With me helping her it took a little over 2 hours and it’s not like she took breaks or dragged anything on – my dog, a 22 pound Shih-Poo - took about 2 hours and 25 minutes for: nails, ears, glands, bathing, blow drying and a haircut. She really gets in there and makes sure the paws are on point. She is meticulous in her method and takes the time to assess what the best course of action is for your dog’s haircut. She switches blades often, making sure that she can get rid of matted fur without compromising your dog’s look or safety. Angela was super caring with Rufus, much like how I act with him. I would definitely recommend her skills!
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.
Rachel is the best she walks my dogs but even better she makes sure they have fun when they're being walked. Rachel specializes in small groups and all the dogs get the attention they desperately need and deserve. Her specialty is taking the dogs to the beach and giving them a great day out on the town. I highly recommend Fog City Dog Walkers to anyone needing their dog exercised and taken out on an adventure instead of just on a walk around the block like the other dog walkers often do.

Great dog sitting service!
I have never used any pet services before I used Rhonda. She was very kind and alleviated any fears I had about leaving my dog with a stranger. She kept us posted the whole time via text and pics. I will definitely use her services again. Ray
Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.
Great experience! She taught us so much in such a short amount of time! Thanks so much for the private lesson, I think it made a world of difference!! I would definitely recommend Janet to anyone who needs a great dog trainer!
Angela was very good with mh dog.
Sherry is simply wonderful. Never hesitate to work with her and trust your beloveds to her.
The team at Small Paws Big Love was so accommodating and so understanding when we introduced them to our rather nervous mini dachshunds. They took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions to make sure everyone felt good about moving forward, and now our dogs love them! They are so responsive and also take care of the details when they see that something needs to be taken care of at home (ex: they notice when we forget to leave the radio on for the pups, and they'll turn it on). Love working with them and would highly recommend them!
I can walk your dogs, however big or small, and I even sit dogs or cats if needed and treat your beloved pets with the care and attention they need.
Because I am professional, have resources to support my work (Vet Tech), and work with only a few animals at a time.
I am the best dog walker around! I am reliable, responsible and flexible. Call me today if you want an energetic, friendly, college graduate to walk your dog(s) in the Oakland area today!
We offer canine ambulation (dog walking services); however, we are not limited to just that. If you are out of town and need someone to stop by to feed and walk your pet or to sit them, this can be arranged. We treat each situation as unique as they are and will work out specific details and agreements with each customer.
I have my own dog name, Mr. Cody, which is like my son. I will treat my customers' dogs as my own. I give them attention, feeding, walking, playing and medication if needed. Whatever is reasonable, I will do to please the customer.
I am a dog walker in the Concord/Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek areas. I have three young children who come with me in the stroller. I prefer to walk smaller dogs.
