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!
Debbie is AMAZING! She walks or takes my dogs to the dog park 2 times a week and shes amazing. My dogs LOVE her. I usually get text message updates or pictures and she is always so fast to respond via text! Couldn't do it without her!
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!
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!
Angela is a fun, quirky lady who really cares about your pup. My little pupper, Rufus, needed a haircut badly, but I could not get an appointment this week or drop him off to his regular groomer in the Fillmore next week. Angela made a house call yesterday and lugged all her gear to my apartment to give my dog a bath and haircut. I offered to help her since she went out of her way and didn’t have her regular assistant with her (also, it would have taken forever!) and let me tell you, if “assistant” grooming is that hard I can only imagine how exhausting the actual grooming is! With me helping her it took a little over 2 hours and it’s not like she took breaks or dragged anything on – my dog, a 22 pound Shih-Poo - took about 2 hours and 25 minutes for: nails, ears, glands, bathing, blow drying and a haircut. She really gets in there and makes sure the paws are on point. She is meticulous in her method and takes the time to assess what the best course of action is for your dog’s haircut. She switches blades often, making sure that she can get rid of matted fur without compromising your dog’s look or safety. Angela was super caring with Rufus, much like how I act with him. I would definitely recommend her skills!
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.
Rachel is the best she walks my dogs but even better she makes sure they have fun when they're being walked. Rachel specializes in small groups and all the dogs get the attention they desperately need and deserve. Her specialty is taking the dogs to the beach and giving them a great day out on the town. I highly recommend Fog City Dog Walkers to anyone needing their dog exercised and taken out on an adventure instead of just on a walk around the block like the other dog walkers often do.

Great dog sitting service!
Thanks to Teri my yellow Labrador retriever is a certified therapy dog with two organizations in the East Bay. My dog was dog distracted and loved to jump up when people greeted her. After a few sessions with Teri my dog passed the Canine Good Citizen test and qualified to join two wonderful organizations. Teri gave me the confidence and dog training skills to fulfill my dream of becoming a therapy pet team. Over the past year and a half my yellow lab and I have brought joy to the young and seniors on our visits. Teri is truly the best in my book!
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!
Angela was very good with mh dog.
Michele was a wonderful dog sitter. I was out of options with friends to watch Niko and my experience with Michele was easy, friendly, and casual. She took wonderful care of my pup. I would definitely use her again!
