It was great having Joyce take care of my kitten. She was very professional, and sweet. She sent me updates everyday with a picture and that kept my mind at ease.

Tiffany is great! Very friendly and professional. My cats were super calm when I came home from my trip so I could tell they were in great hands while I was away. Tiffany also saved the day when we arrived home and discovered we had misplaced our keys! She drove out to meet us. I was so relieved! Thanks again for the fabulous service :)

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!

Les with Executive Canine Services is FABULOUS! We rescued a great 3 yr old golden retriever/border collie mix who needed some "fine tuning." A friend recommended Les to us, and we could not be happier with him. He is first of all, one of the most delightful people you will ever meet, and to top that, his knowledge of dog training is excellent. He is well read, has endless tips and techniques that are easy to learn and implement, and he really has a special knack with dogs. Our dog made great strides from week to week, and we really owe it to Les and his ability to read our dog, and make thoughtful recommendations for what we needed to work on. I felt he really tailored the training to our dog's needs. He was always on time or early, and came prepared with the next lesson to work on. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and will absolutely call on him for any more dog training needs. Thanks, Les!

Elizabeth is fabulous. We had a new puppy and an older dog and she bonded with both of them very quickly....She is kind, responsible, on time, and very reliable. She understands dogs very well and what they need. Our dogs are high energy and she walked them alot when she sat, and taught them to be better on leads....what a nice gift.... Our family and our canines can not say enough good things about Eilzabeth....having her help is priceless.

Twink stays at my house every time we take a trip (usually 2-3 weeks) to take care of my 3 dogs, cat, voracious kois and many plants. One of my dogs, a Weim, had heart failure and required a complicated med regimen. And my other 2 dogs have complex dynamics as the older one took a lot of time and patience (on our part) to get used to his new "brother." And Twink always pays great attention to all details and instructions, it is obvious that all my animals are very happy, loved and well-taken care of when we are gone. She sends us photos of them nearly every day, and they look just as relaxed and trustful as when we are home. It is a great relief to have found someone so reliable that I can completely trust with my pets and my house. I would highly recommend Twink without reservation.

Maria did a great job at my apartment. My apartment was extremely messy and she did not leave until the job was finished to perfection. She also cares about which cleaning products she uses and how they impact the environment and pets which is a plus.

I can't say enough positive things about Keith and the pack at YCC! I needed last-minute pet care for my dog after an unexpected surgery. Keith and the pack stepped right in, and provided service that was above and beyond my expectations. I have YCC on speed-dial for any future pet service!

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.

She did amazing work on my dog Papa. His fur was growing wild, so had a lot of knots in his hair, but she got all of them out!! He also smelled real good for a week. He came back happy and with a cute little red bow tie. If you need a groomer, she's the one.

Rusty has exceeded above and beyond my hopes for a trainer. After our first complimentary consultation for him to assess my pups behavior as well as for me to assess whether Rusty was the right trainer for us, I knew I had landed on one of the best. He possesses an incredible wealth of knowledge that he conveys efficiently and proficiently giving you the tools to truly carry over the work done in the sessions to every day life with your dog. He is professional, patient, and creative in his training, not to mention a true dog whisperer. While I originally sought Rusty's guidance for foundational obedience training and separation anxiety, it evolved to using him to assist in the journey of training my pup to be a therapy dog. Along the way, my dog suffered an traumatic experience while under the care of a sitter and adopted fear behaviors that had not existed before. I called Rusty right away for advice and help. We adjusted our sessions to address the immediate concerns so they would not become permanent. He was a complete blessing and my pup is successfully on the mend. Rusty is so well-versed in many areas of dog-training (he's your one-stop shop!) Whether you need short-term assistance, long-term, or varying areas of concerns, look no further. You don't need to take my word for it, just take advantage of the complimentary consultation and see for yourself. Absolutely no regrets here.

Emily is fantastic! She began working with our 6 month old weim only 4 weeks ago, and he is already a different dog. He has learned to be better on the leash, developing better response to commands such as sit and stay. Emily truly listens to the needs of the family and is very responsive to the individual dog needs. She is dependable, responsible and when you meet her, you can just feel her passion and dedication to puppy training. She sent us regular daily updates about our puppy's progress, including video clips. When we first started, our puppy was shy of other dogs, but after only 2 weeks, he was braver and more assertive in the dog park with other pets. Emily is a pleasure to work with and we have just signed up for another 4 weeks of training to continue building on the progress our doggies has made. She is down to earth and caring. She is also not afraid to say when something isn't working, which we truly appreciated. Our dog didn't like the halti leash, so after a couple of weeks of training, Emily came up with a different leash option and was very honest about the reasons for the change. It's refreshing to work with such a professional. Thank you, Emily, for all your dedication and hard work!

I work out of the home three days per week and need help with my dogs, Winston & Annie. Since Ryan began helping me with them more than a year ago, they are happier and really look forward to seeing him. Ryan really is their second (I'm first) best friend! Christine A.

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!
