Pete was wonderful with my very skid dish dog. Pete is very patient and calm a Pete was wonderful with my very skiddish dog. Pete is extremely patient, calm and encouraging, and was able to give Georgy a feeling of confidence. He is now walking better with me and not as hypervigilant. Pete gave me me great tools.

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!

Shana was great! Texted every day to let us know how walks went. She had to deal with construction going on at the house and we were very grateful to have her taking the dogs out each day.

We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.

I highly recommend Cathy as a dog walker. She recently started walking my dog Charlie and he took to her immediately. It's apparent that she loves animals and takes great care in walking Charlie. Top Notch!

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 recently had the pleasure of contracting with Your Best Friend Pet Services to care for our dog and cat while we visited family in Southern California. The owner, Holly Pardel, was professional and friendly throughout. She scheduled a time at our convenience to come to our house to meet with us and our pets, Roxie and Roscoe. She allowed us to explain exactly the care needed for each animal. Her warmth and attention to detail immediately put both myself and my wife at ease and allowed us to leave for our trip confident that our "kids" were in very good hands. Holly came to our house twice a day. Her visits included feeding, administering medications to our lab, Roxie, as well as taking her for walks around the neighborhood. She sent numerous photos and videos of Roxie at play which again served to reassure us that all was well at home. She also took in the mail for us, and even fed our goldfish, Sunkist! Upon our return home after nearly a week's absence, we found our pets healthy and happy. Her rates are extremely reasonable for the services provided (much less than if we had boarded them). I can recommend without reservation Holly Pardel for all of your dog walking and pet sitting needs. Thanks again Holly!

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!

Ryan is awesome. I moved to the area and didn't know anyone. My dogs are so important to me and I was anxious about finding a dog walker to help me out. From the start Ryan was really positive and super nice. He is communicative and flexible. He mixes up the walks by taking my dogs to the dog park and for walks. My schedule can be a little unpredictable and Ryan is always able to adjust. I highly recommend him!

Milla is the ultimate professional. She knows a lot about dog behavior and training and she’s very kind. She looked after my Aussie for a couple of years until I had to set him up with an all day dog care, and he adored her. Whenever we run into her, he is thrilled all over again, which affirms every good thing I think about Milla. I recommend her in any capacity of pet care - without qualification.

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!

Craig is amazing he connects with my dogs. Yes he takes them out for exercise, but he also learns about each individual dog and understands their needs. I’ve been a client for over 12 years and had foster dogs as well as my own from puppy to senior. He’s worked with and built relationships and trust with my fear aggressive female or does not trust humans except kids, and doesn’t care for all dogs. In essence, it’s important to understand her, so that you can catch cues when she’s overwhelmed or needs a timeout. I also have a fear retreat male that Craig has built a relationship with so that my dog trusts him. I also have a puppy that is clingy and can become over stimulated that Craig has taken the time to work with. I also had two beagles that Craig was amazing with. Currently, I have 2 ridgebacks and a beagle that go out daily with Craig. Craig has also taken out my foster dogs on occasion. When my dogs come home, they are exhausted. Craig is also flexible when I need to cancel or have an emergency he’s available and understanding. He’s done overnights with my dogs and I can leave on vacation and not worry about them. Even when I had surgery, Craig came and got the dogs to ensure they were exercised and exhausted so that when I got home I could rest. He has keys to my home and trust him. The one thing that sticks with me, is Craig’s compassion- it was Sunday and he has a big family of his own, but I was having a home euthanasia, I called Craig and he came and got my other 3 dogs and took them for 5 hours so that I could spend the last hours alone with my senior. Craig would have kept my other 3 longer, but I needed them home as the euthanasia was hard on me. Craig is part of our family, and he cares about my dogs and when there are certain requests he obliges whether it’s making sure my senior boy doesn’t jump down. Or when one of my dogs was on limited activity and crate rest, Craig would make sure to take him potty in my yard on a leash before or after he took the other 2.

Gail has been walking our dog Val for about 6-7 months now and she is fantastic! I can't say enough about Gail's attentiveness, reliability, and great communication. We have had previous dog walkers an Gail is by far the best. She frequently sends pictures or videos of the day's walk, which is really thoughtful. She is also very flexible and works with us and our schedule. We originally had Gail come a few days a week, but we are so happy she now comes Monday through Friday. It's clear she really cares about the dogs she works with and wants to make sure they're happy. If you're looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and thoughtful dog walker, contact Gail!
