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!

Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.

Stephen Walks Dogs

I don't even know where to begin when I talk about Stephen Perry and his remarkable abilities with dogs. He has been the answer to my prayers. My dog, Keeper, has been a huge problem for me because of his chronic separation anxiety. He wants only to be with me. His behavior when he is away from me has caused him to be rejected by kennels for daytime or overnight stays. I have felt "burdened" by this for the entire 3 years that I have owned him. I have talked to trainers and other dog professionals but no one has been able to help me. Then I was lucky enough to find Stephen. He miraculously and almost immediately transformed Keeper's negative experience of being away from me into something pleasurable and comfortable for Keeper. Stephen walks him once a week, and Keeper has stayed overnight in his home with his other dogs (both his own and dogs that are being boarding). These dogs function like a "pack" with Stephen at the head. The dogs love and trust him. I could see that clearly when I visited his home. When he is with dogs, Stephen is in control, no nonsense, calm, consistent, fair, and very kind. He loves dogs and they love him. I don't know if those who are reading this are familiar with Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer, but when I leave Keeper with Stephen, it's like leaving him with Cesar Milan. And by the way, Stephen's prices are very reasonable, although that is not at all important to me. I am motivated to hire Stephen only because of his remarkable abilities.

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!

Martha was very professional and thorough before she agreed to care for my pets. We met twice so that she and Denise could meet my entire family of 5 cats and 2 dogs. I'm sure that my pet family was happy to have someone there overnight while I was out of town. I got almost daily updates on my pets which were greatly appreciated. I feel confident that they received very good care in my absence and would highly recommend Wiggling Tails Pet Sitting Service

Susi was wonderful and responsible. She came to meet me prior to my trip and asked a lot of thoughtful questions about what I would like her to do. She was very responsive to all of my messages, including when I needed to add on an extra day of pet sitting at the last minute. It was really nice to go out of town and know that my three cats were in good hands.

Lane has been walking my dog everyday for 2 years and pet sitting her about once a month at his home. I am beyond satisfied with the service. He cares about my dog, has helped significantly with training and socialization, and is more than accommodating to my schedule--all while keeping costs low. I can't imagine using anyone else. I especially love the daily Facebook photos and gps tracking of the group walks. I know he genuinely loves dogs and his job. Can't recommend him enough.

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
