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 and her family did an amazing job caring for my car sushi while I was away traveling. She is a very nice and kind person that just loves animals. Shelley would send us daily status updates on how sushi was doing along with super cute photos. She's exactly what we needed in a cat sitter and we will be hiring her again when we travel. I highly recommend her.

Marina is the best walker we could have hoped for. Our dog is so specific and he absolutely adores Marina. I don't know what we would do without her. She communicates with us all the time and is able to handle our boy. We trust her and feel comfortable boarding him with Marina too. Happy dog, happy owners.

Being away from home with work or travel and knowing that my animals are well cared for is an invaluable service. I am grateful to have Pam looking after my cats and dog. Her love and dedication to animals is apparent in her work. When I told her about a litter of feral kittens living in my back yard she lent me a trap and offered her assistance in trapping, handling them, and adopting them out.

Over the years, I’ve sought Amy’s advice for my doggies and kitties because she’s smart, compassionate, and as invested in human success/happiness as animal success/happiness. She has great ideas, the know-how to turn seemingly impossible situations around for the better, and she genuinely loves the animals she works with as if they were hers. My animals and I are way better for it! I trust her with my animals.

Ann's animal boarding is fantastic. They satisfy our needs and worries. Honestly, my boyfriend and I afraid to travel since we have two chihuahuas and one kitty . We had experienced serveral failed dog boarding at else places, expensive costs and pets at home sickly afterwards that kept us not dare to try. Usually call friends to help out. However, this time no one available and we need to go business trips for two weeks. Thank you so much Yang, your family saved us. I love the short video you sent to us everyday and our dogs lively when we back. Can't wait our next trip.

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

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!

Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.

    We were impressed that Jenni had a lot experience with a variety of animals and we completely trust her with our 2 dogs, 1 cat, 6 chickens, 2 ducks & 2 cockatiels. Qualities I would add are reliablity, honesty and sincerity.

    I have a 14 year old chow-mix named J-Jay. I wanted Becky to walk him when I was working 10 hour shifts. For a couple of weeks. At first I was worried that he wouldn't like her. (he gets very moodie) But he took to her right away. Now that I am not working 10 hour shifts anymore I still have Becky walk him here and there so he can be very open to meeting new people and dogs. I would recommend Becky because she is kind and loving to animals and even their owners.

    About

    Animals are my absolute favorite. Some people call me an "animal whisperer" because I know how animals are feeling when interacting with them and what they want. I own two dogs myself, a German shepherd and a Chihuahua, and they mean the world to me.
