Sarah has been walking our beagle and yorkie for a few weeks now and we couldn't be more pleased. She's clearly an animal lover, is reliable and goes above and beyond what we ask of her. Highly recommend :)

I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.

Great sitter. Really made it clear that she was doing this because of her love for animals rather than for the money. My dog's six day stay with her went without a hitch. She was able to walk him, feed him his own food, allow him to sleep in her bed and even administer medicine. To top it all off she gave me a ride to and from the airport for a very reasonable price. Perhaps this was out of the ordinary for her, but it really helped me. Thank you for your wonderful service!

We only had two weeks to find a dog walking before leaving for 16 days. I used Thumbtack to get some leads. Meg, who owns Peace Love and Walks, responded immediately and we set up an appt. She came out to meet us and Molly. She was professional as well as friendly and helpful. Her price for walking is very competitive and fair. We really liked her background in working in veterinary clinics and her reviews of her dog walking. She and Molly hit it off right from the start. She came to our house every day we were gone and walked, fed, and played with Molly. She sent us emails and pictures of her walks with Molly which made us feel good about our choice of dog walker. Our trip was so much more enjoyable since we didn't have to worry about Molly while we were gone. I would highly recommend her.

Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!

Evergreen painted the interior of my home in a surprisingly quick time span. They were friendly and they didn't get paint anywhere but where it was supposed to, a problem I've been having with a few different painters. David was extremely nice and walked me through every step of the production. He made sure that I was extremely comfortable with everything his guys were doing. I've had some extremely negative experiences with painting companies in the past, and was a little gun-shy going into this. But David was honest and delivered everything he said he would. I cannot recommend Evergreen Painting highly enough. I won't be using any other painting company ever again.

I went out of town for a little over a week and needed someone to provide care for my cat. Elese was very responsive and professional. She was also very accommodating when coordinating the drop off of my key. My cat seems very happy in the daily reports I revived. I will most definitely be using Happy Paws again!

What can I say about Annie. My four boxer girls are absolutely in love with her. At the mere mention of Annie's name they are at the garage waiting for her arrival every morning. Whether my boxer girls are being walked or Annie is sitting with them I know that they are safe and secure. I would recommend Annie in a heartbeat to anyone. Annie he is not just a dog walker or a sitter she is much more. The care, compassion and love that she has for my boxer girls is amazing. My boxer girls deserve the best and Annie is the best!!

Beckys been doggiesitting for me for the last 6 months, I have a big german shepherd and little chihuahua and she's been absolutely amazing with both of them. I really adore the way she is with her own dogs too!!!! they get along with everyone... and when there is a dog in need She is putting up flyers doing everything she can. I didn't know I'd meet somebody that loves dog's more than me but I think I found my match... so if you ever need someone to watch your baby I would definitely call her...

Rhonda has cared for our cats and dog when we have been away from home. One time in particular she cared for our dog who had recent surgery when we had to go out of town. She not only did the usual feeding, she followed a complicated medication regimen, changed dressings, and gently and carefully helped her to go to out to go to the bathroom as needed as well as gave loving care and attention. Rhonda loves animals and they love her. I would highly recommend Rhonda for pet care.

Nuñez Paint painted the interior of my home in a surprisingly quick time span. They were friendly and they didn't get paint anywhere but on my walls and ceiling, a problem I've been having with a few different painters. David was extremely nice and walked me through every step of the production. He made sure that I was extremely comfortable with everything his guys were doing. I've had some extremely negative experiences with painting companies in the past, and was a little gun-shy going into this. But David was honest and delivered everything he said he would.

My puppy, clementine, loves spending the day with dog wild. Their professionalism and compassion for dogs shows in everything they do. I recommend asking about the off leash pack adventure if you need dog walking services. Your dog will come back tired, socialized, and happy. They even send awesome photo updates!!
