Erika was so enthusiastic about working with our 100 lb Lab, Hoss. She came very prepared with lots of little reward treats and her trusty clicker. 😀 Hoss needed help because he does not like other dogs and he would get upset and lunge and jump if we even saw a dog behind a fence while we were walking him. We had four sessions. Erika was very realistic, and said the goal was not to make Hoss become best friends with dogs, but to be able to walk him without him pulling me down and dragging me. Hoss loved Erika. Erika trained Hoss (and us) to respond positively to key words and divert his attention away from other dogs that are behind fences or being walked. While Hoss still does not care for other dogs, it is so easier now to walk him around the neighborhood. Hoss fell in love with Erika! 🐶❤️

Excellent service !! Unfortunately my dog just passed away but the owner and one of her employees came by and did a meet and greet before taking care of my dog while I was out of country and they gave him a toy that he kept near by till his last day..

We are so glad we picked Jenny as our dog pet sitter! She took care of our dog for 4 days while we were traveling. She was very attentive and kind with our boy and was always sending pictures and messages. Which helped us to see how he was doing. One thing that really amazed us is that our dog was trained in portuguese and Jenny learned somethings just so he could understand her better! Our dog was very happy under Jenny's care and that's the most important part for us. We sure recommend her services.

We have had an a wonderful experience with Wendy Brookhyser and her team. Our dog was almost 4 years old when we brought him to the facility. We were having issues with aggression towards other dogs and an extremely hard time walking him with a leash. We had dog trainers come to our home and try and help us, but nothing seemed to work or stick for very long. Our good friend told us about Wendy and we decided to give her a try. This was our last attempt to try and help our sweet Aussie before adopting him to another family. Our Chuck did such a fantastic job with Wendy and her staff. When we picked him up, our whole family was pleased with how well he listened to us and walked with us. Our children use to not be able to walk him without a parent because he would dash after other dogs or people on bikes. Now even my 10 year old can walk him. I was reluctant to send my dog away. I had heard stories where the dog came back with a wounded or broken spirit. Chuck came back to us with the same fun loving spirit he had when we dropped him off. If I could do all over again, I wouldn't hesitate this time! The best part about this facility is that they not only train the dog, they train the family. We were instructed to watch a training video at least 8 times before we picked him up. We were told this DVD would help us prepare for our dog's arrival back into our home. The videos helped us learn the commands our dog would be learning at the facility. It has been a life saver! We still watch it once a week to brush up on our skills. They also provide Friday Train Day where they come to your home and pick up your dog for the day. We have taken advantage of this to help give our dog more consistency while we are still improving our skills with him. Chuck is so excited every Friday when he sees Wendy or a staff member. I would and do recommend Wendy to all of my friends that are struggling with obedience. They also provide boarding services. We are so happy with Wendy and her team and will continue to help us if and when we should need it.

My family has a very quirky greyhound. (I am not sure if quirky is the best word, I could say "neurotic" or "needy"...) We also have two cats who let us live in their house. One of my cats is very shy and the other is crazy. I have been using PeeWee's Playdates for more than four years to help take care of my animals when I am not at home. All of my animals are rescues and I am very particular about how they are taken care of. Our dog has a schedule for when and where he is walked and when he is fed because it makes him feel more secure. Since he has a very sensitive stomach, I often need to adjust what he is fed, so that he doesn't keep me up all night wanting to go outside. Kelsey and her staff are meticulous about following my instructions and reporting back to me about how my animals behaved on the visit. What is even more important though is the fact that my animals are happy when Kelsey has been by for a visit. I feel comforted knowing that when PeeWee's Playdates comes for a visit, my animals will be calm and happy when I get home. I have peace of mind knowing that they will be taken care of by people who truly care about animals. I also appreciate the fact that Kelsey has been so great at accommodating last minute requests for help. I have used other services and they just don't compare to the professional and truly caring people at PeeWee's Playdates.

Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.

I Dropped my dog Daisy off with Michele and was very surprised that she would be done in 2 & 1/2 hours. Everywhere I have ever taken Daisy has taken no less than 4 hours. She was very loving to my dog and did a great job taking care of her needs. Daisy is a clean dog again and I will be using Dexter's House again..Thank you Michele

I was very happy with Amanda taking care of our three cats. Two of them hid from her like the fraidy cats they are but the third one was out and Amanda sent me a picture of her every day that she was there. It was super sweet. She also went above and beyond by vacuuming the carpet by the litter boxes on the last day. WOW! I couldn't believe she did that. We will definitely ask Amanda to take care of our furbabies the next time we are out of town.

Bo went in pulling on the leash and crazy excited when he saw another dog. One hour later he walked out calmly and was completely unphased by other dogs he saw. I've got to keep it up, but Paul got me and Bo back on track!

Cassie is a family friend and we have known her for over 7 years. She used to walk my dogs Molly and Karo when my family and I went on vacation. Once she became a Groomer she offered to groom Molly and give Karo baths. She has always treated our dogs with care and passion.

Courtney is a wonderful and reliable pet sitter! She has taken care of my dog, Zoe, and my guinea pig, rabbits and hamster when I've been away. She is professional and very loving. She has a dog named Noodle that she brings with her that my dog adores. I trust Courtney in my home and with all my animals. My dog is a needy dog and Courtney meets her needs so well that when I return my dog is happy and calm. The only bad part is that Zoe misses her when she leaves!! Courtney is the best!
