I hired Shelley for cat sitting. It was on short notice, but she was very quick to respond and meet up to go over instructions. I was gone for almost a week, but Shelley was great with providing video and picture updates. When we got back home, was just as we left it and my cat barely even noticed we left :) Overall, my experience was great. I can't recommend Shelley enough, she was fantastic!
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
Marina is amazing! I've hired her twice for cat sitting and she always sends me photos of my cat without fail :) I have peace of mind whenever I leave my cat with her. She even goes above and beyond with her services; she cleans my apartment, she waters my plants and even bought a new bowl and food mat for my cat.
Susi was fantastic with my cat Chango who was just moved from Brooklyn to SF. She was professional and personable. Chango was very happy and content when I returned home after vacation. I highly recommend Poppy's mom.
Working with Tammy has been life changing. The amount of love and care she puts into her work has really shown in her training with our little Whiskey. We had opted for the 3 week board and train. Before meeting Tammy, I was worried my dog would never be able to break his fearful anxiety and special "selective hearing" condition. He was stubborn to a fault, and that worried me. Upon consultation, Tammy eased my worries and agreed to take him on. 3 weeks later and he was a different dog!!! I was amazed. He is well behaved, listens to every command, and even tolerates other dogs. It's been a couple of months since the end of the program. She has worked with him weekly since then and he continues to make great strides while remaining consistent. We even have decided to start boarding him with her once a month just so she can keep him in check. Lol Tammy, we adore you. We thank you so much for everything! Whiskey thanks you, too!
Pam took very good care of all of my animals. She was able to take care of the dogs, cat and bird. She kept me well informed and we were happy with her service.
Great, professional pet sitters. Wiggling Tails met with us ahead of time to go through their procedures and tour our house. Sent us regular updates while we were out of town, with pictures of our cat. Will hire again!
Holly has been working with my dog Otis for only a couple of months but has already made a huge difference in our lives. Otis has serious separation anxiety and I have tried everything including medication. Holly worked with us and have us a bunch of tools. Otis is much more relaxed now, I can tell he is a more confident dog. Plus Holly is an awesome person to be around and she really loves all dogs.
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!
Christina had an affinity for animals and they love her. Our pup looks forward to her walks, kisses, and love. Thank you for taking care of our fur baby as if he was your own!
Laura is wonderful to leave my toy poodle with. She treated him so well and he was very happy while staying with her. She is an excellent dog sitter!

I am an experienced pet sitter and dog walker/trainer offering affordable services around Danville, Walnut Creek and San Ramon. I would love to walk your dog or play with your cat, while you're working during the day or out of town. I offer daily walks, feeding, changing water bowls or litter boxes and affection, and I am very experienced at giving medications. I also teach your dog some really cool tricks, potty training if you need help with that, or also better leash manners, all while we have fun! Previous clientele have been very satisfied with my services. I can also manage special needs of animals (geriatric, ill or aggressive), as I was a veterinary assistant at a high-volume veterinary hospital for over 3 years. My other qualifications include time at The Humane Society, A Dog's Life doggie daycare, and I am a college graduate. I am also capable of training dogs out of common household issues if you (the owner) are willing to put in some effort with me! We offer reasonable rates. References are available upon request. My wonderful yelp is on my website. Call or email me for more information. Ashley Fraser
Iʻve been delighted with the service that Isabel and her Surf Dogs company have provided me and my dog Ressie for the last couple of years. Isabel is flexible, always accommodating last-minute changes in my schedule. Sheʻs also great for overnights or long-term boarding--Ressie always comes home a happy little dog, whether sheʻs been on a several-hour walk or an overnight stay. She enjoys all her pals--human and canine--at Surf Dogs. And so do I!
We hired Beth a few months ago to take our dogs on walks as we needed her services. Due to my recent fractured ankle, we have used Beth's dog walking and pet sitting services for 5-6 days per week. Beth is reliable, conscientious and punctual. She is very loving towards our two dogs as well as our cat. We trust her in our home when we are not home. We are very fortunate to have Beth's services and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is considering hiring her. You will rest at ease knowing your pets are well cared for when you are not home.

Because I am professional, have resources to support my work (Vet Tech), and work with only a few animals at a time.
