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.

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!

Christina was great with my dog. They went on an hour walk and he came home and was ready for a nap. She made him a friend for life with treats. She will be coming back again this week.

We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!

Dear Pet Owner, It is with extreme pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Laura Tait of Laura’s 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 Milo’s 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 Milo’s 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 Milo’s 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 can’t 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

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!

    Nieuwe site Joeke. Ziet er heel goed uit.


    I love to walk dogs after school, weekends and over summer. I also babysit 2 years and older every once in a while as well!


    I have over 20 years of hands on experience in the classroom or in educational administration. I have been trained to work with non-traditional learners, specifically dyslexic learners in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching. I have two undergaduate degrees (the first in English and Psychology, and the second in Kinesiology with a focus in Adapted Physical Education), and I am currently working on my Master’s degree in English and Creative Writing.


    I walk dogs for a healthy and happy doggy life. As with any dog walking, they will do their business. I carry doggy bags for their bowel movements.


    I am a professional dog walker with over 30 years of experience. I've owned over 10 dogs during my lifetime and have gained great experience on walking, training and caring for them. I have super accessible rates for the busy executives that want to make sure their babies will be in safe, trustworthy and knowledgeable hands and not some inexperienced kid that would probably let go of the leash in a moment of panic or distraction.

    I like animals, especially dogs. I also have worked with dogs before in a training program. I helped dog named Bobby with uneven-sized legs get trained and later, adopted. I am a certified junior dog trainer.

    Outstanding service. One-on-one attention. Business background. I love the out doors and love to exercise and play with all breeds of dogs.


    A tired dog is a good dog! Our caring staff have many years of experience in pet sitting and in the veterinary field. We offer on-leash pack hikes in Santa Clara County's beautiful parks. We also offer full-service drop-in and overnight pet and ranch sitting for all animals.


    I have the canine companion you've always dreamed of! Integrating many different training techniques customized for each individual dog.

    Hi, there! I am a stay-at-home mom (to a baby and a two-year old dog) with over 12 years of dog-caring experience. I offer dog walking and sitting at very competitive rates. Are you worried about your dog at home while you are working long hours? My female havanese and I can help.


    If you need help with pet care, dog walking, pet sitting, house cleaning from a trusted, respectful and caring professional, then I am your girl! Our pets get lonely during the day and would love a little extra attention to get them through that time when you are away. I would come to your home and give them love and care, walk and play with your dog(s), clean up any mess they made, brush, feed and provide water too, if requested. Cats don't like to be walked, but I offer the above services for them as well. Rats, hamsters, birds, snakes, and fish, I've had them all and know how to care for them. I offer housecleaning services as well. Sometimes just the company of someone in the home is good enough for your pet.

    I don't just see my furry clients as a means to and end. Each dog that I meet and work with is a special individual to me.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
