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!

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!

Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!

Erika is absolutely amazing with my senior golden retriever. Hope loves Erika because she is loving, cautious and very observant of my dog's needs. I am very picky about who I allow to walk my dog due to her health concerns. Erika takes her time and makes sure that all of Hope's needs are taking care of including change of water, and cleaning up any of Hope's "you know what" on our patio. I cannot recommend this young lady enough. Her gracious and calm personality make her highly valuable. She is absolutely dependable and listens to all of the directives I gave her about Hope. Hire her, and do not let her get away, you will not be sorry.

I had a meet & greet with Sonia yesterday; she brought her "pack" of dogs to meet my dog, who is sometimes aggressive toward other dogs. Sonia really seems to know her stuff, and gave me great advice on dealing with my dog!! And he behaved pretty well around all her dogs, thanks to her coaching! I was impressed!

Dear Pet Owner, It is with extreme pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Laura Tait of Laura’s Pet Services. I met Laura at a local dog park several years ago and since then she has cared for Milo (my Chihuahua/Terrier mix) many times. Laura is extremely responsible, dependable, and trustworthy. She has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. She is wonderfully patient and always loving towards Milo, who quickly became very comfortable around her. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. She has always listened intently to my instructions and is always willing to work with me to meet all of Milo’s needs. In addition to all the basic requirements, I completely trust her to administer medication and follow through with any special pet needs. When it comes to Milo’s health and well-being, I have complete confidence in her knowledge and judgment. Laura is an excellent communicator. She always does a great job of keeping me informed about how Milo is feeling and behaving. When I call, she often tells me about little, special moments in Milo’s day. She is very accommodating with changes in schedule, and I am always amazed at how quickly she returns my phone calls. She is very flexible and has never had to cancel on me. The longest time Laura cared for Milo was for 3 weeks this past June-July. The peace of mind we enjoy on our vacations knowing that Milo is being so lovingly cared for is invaluable. We are able to relax and enjoy the vacations we can’t take Milo on knowing he is in the best hands. The happiness and contentment I see in Milo when we return is priceless. There is no one I would trust with any pet of mine more than Laura. She is a model caregiver, who truly cares for the welfare of all pets. Milo and I are happy to recommend Laura without qualification. I am confident that any pet owner would be fully satisfied with her services. Please feel free to call me if you would like a verbal confirmation of this letter. Dawn San Jose

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!

Pam took excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!

My girlfriend and I had been talking about finding a dog walker to take our pups (a busy border collie, Piper, and feisty miniature pinscher, Bentley) out a couple of times a week while we were at work. When we moved to our new place we saw a flyer for Oakland Walkies hanging on the community board and thought 'Let's give it a try.' John came to our house for the initial consultation and our dogs warmed to him immediately - it usually takes one of them a while. John came over a few days later with his dog Luli. We took the three of them on a short walk together and it felt like they'd been walking together forever. John is incredibly caring, flexible, great with dogs and their people. He sends photos of the pups on their adventures, gives updates, let's us know if plans change (different park for the day due to weather, etc.) and makes sure the dogs in his pack are well taken care of before, during and after their walks & adventures. Piper and Bentley have been part of his pack now for a year and it's completely improved the way they meet/greet and interact with other dogs on our walks and they're SUPER HAPPY. If you're thinking about getting a dog walker, boarding your pup, or finding someone to let your dog out for short potty breaks while you're at work, book with Oakland Walkies IMMEDIATELY! You'll be pleased with the service and, more importantly, your dog(s) will be happier, healthier adventurers. Thank you Oakland Walkies!

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!

Sylvette is part of the family already! Flexible with times, sweet, funny and she loves our Chappie as much as he loves her. Her walks are always varied and interesting and our dog gets great exercise working off his 1 1/2 yr old pent-up energy. When she first got Chappie, he was a shy young man, not at ease with other dogs. Now, thanks to her loving encouragement he's opened right up and now has made lots of other two-legged and four-legged friends. He runs to her when she gets here to pick him up and returns to us as happy as ever. She gives him love as if he were her own, keeps up our training/discipline regimen and only gives him delicious healthy treats and food. She's even watched him for a week while we were out of town. We've been through larger dog walking services and we will never go back. Longue Vie Sylvette!

    I am planning on getting a puppy next summer, preferably a Doberman. As these are often rather high energy dogs, he or she might need more than a quiet walk every day, more like a vigorous romp. It would be even better if the romp included other dogs to play with. I will be taking my doggie to obedience classes in order to make her an easier dog to deal with.
