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!

Angela is a fun, quirky lady who really cares about your pup. My little pupper, Rufus, needed a haircut badly, but I could not get an appointment this week or drop him off to his regular groomer in the Fillmore next week. Angela made a house call yesterday and lugged all her gear to my apartment to give my dog a bath and haircut. I offered to help her since she went out of her way and didn’t have her regular assistant with her (also, it would have taken forever!) and let me tell you, if “assistant” grooming is that hard I can only imagine how exhausting the actual grooming is! With me helping her it took a little over 2 hours and it’s not like she took breaks or dragged anything on – my dog, a 22 pound Shih-Poo - took about 2 hours and 25 minutes for: nails, ears, glands, bathing, blow drying and a haircut. She really gets in there and makes sure the paws are on point. She is meticulous in her method and takes the time to assess what the best course of action is for your dog’s haircut. She switches blades often, making sure that she can get rid of matted fur without compromising your dog’s look or safety. Angela was super caring with Rufus, much like how I act with him. I would definitely recommend her skills!

I am pleased that I selected Loving Paws when we went out of state for a week in July. Peggy did go above and beyond as others have said. She did a very thorough interview at our house in Martinez before we left. I felt we were leaving our 4 cats in good hands. Peggy texted me several times to let me know how things were going. She was willing to brush the cats (but we didn't know where the brush was). She brought over her boom box so they could have music 24/7. We also had her water our plants for an additional charge. She collected the mail as part of her pet care taking. She came once a day and scooped the boxes daily. During one extremely hot day, she came by twice at no extra charge. Loving Paws is not a cut rate operation. The cost was more than boarding our dog. But it was worth it to have peace of mind. Previous friends and other businesses were overwhelmed by our felines. One is a bully and one is quite elderly. They all came through just fine, as did the plants. A paws up to Loving Paws!

Pam watched our dog for a little over a week while my family and I traveled out of town. The overall experience was smooth and great. Pam was responsive, gave updates a couple times a day and immediately if we asked, and was flexible with pickup and drop off times. Our dog even stayed another unplanned night with no problem! I will use her services again in the future.

Genevieve walks our dog daily while we work and has even kept him overnight while we went out of town. She always stays in great communication. I love knowing our dog is out everyday with his friends especially when we have a long day away from home!

Great dog sitting service!

About

I am an ABC (Animal Behavior College) certified dog trainer and have been around multiple different animals all my life. Dogs and cats are my specialty, but I'm also a lover of small animals and certain reptiles. I also have experience cleaning houses and babysitting. If interested, call and leave a voice message to the number provided. Thank you for your consideration, and I would be happy to do business with you.

About

I am a dog walker in the Concord/Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek areas. I have three young children who come with me in the stroller. I prefer to walk smaller dogs.

About

I am an experienced professional dog walker in Marin County. My clients hire me because my focus is on exercise and socialization of dogs. In the course of my daily walks and runs, I do light training and behavior modification to help dogs become great family dogs. For active dogs, I have mountain biking adventures on fire roads in open space. I only bring three dogs along during these trips, and for larger dogs that require more exercise, they thrive during these runs. I also have small dog walks where smaller breeds can feel comfortable and safe. I am certified in pet first aid and CPR, and I am licensed and insured.

About

I've always had an attachment to animals. But, I can't have pets, so whenever I get to spend time with any kind of pet, I love and enjoy it. I especially love dogs, so that's why I think I would be the perfect dog sitter.
