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.
Krystal responded to my inquiry right away and has been flexible about my very special needs dog (old and set in his ways). I'm excited to work with 4 Paws.
Cathy was extremely reliable & even texted us pics of our dog walking. The dog liked her too
Jarad was excellent and always did what he said. Show up on time, great friendly walk with my dog and back safe. My dog would come running to the car when Jarad arrived. He has a great way with animals.
I am very pleased with my experience with Your Critter Companions. My dog, Charlie, has really taken to Michael and Shana, who walk him. I highly recommend Your Critter Companions!
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!
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.
We offer off leash dog walking excursion at our private 8 acre ranch
Pete is an outstanding dog trainer. We only needed one lesson and he showed me what I need to do to get my dog to walk without pulling, stay in her bed for an extended period of time and to calm down when people come over. He showed me and left it up to me to practice the exercises with her. She has really improved and now the walks are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend Pete and his services. He even read my 2 year old grandaughter a book when we were done!
Shawnon is great with my boys and treats them as her own "ratties" (rat terrier twins)!
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!
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!
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!
Tina has been very methodical in getting to know our pup well before taking her to the dog parks. She is responsible and always communicates with which I appreciate as it feels like she is looking out for my pup as much as I am.
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.
