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!

Holly has been working with my dog Otis for only a couple of months but has already made a huge difference in our lives. Otis has serious separation anxiety and I have tried everything including medication. Holly worked with us and have us a bunch of tools. Otis is much more relaxed now, I can tell he is a more confident dog. Plus Holly is an awesome person to be around and she really loves all dogs.

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!

I truly am grateful for Lane's services for being so flexible and accommodating. My dog absolutely loves to go with Lane, while he had shown reluctance to go to another dog daycare. Watching my dog getting excited to go with Lane makes me happy every time:)

I have never used any pet services before I used Rhonda. She was very kind and alleviated any fears I had about leaving my dog with a stranger. She kept us posted the whole time via text and pics. I will definitely use her services again. Ray

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.

Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.

Brandon has been taking my dog Andre out on dog park outings for several months now. Andre is a bit reactive but Brandon took on the challenge and has figured out a way to get Andre his exercise and manage his reactivity as well. I like that he gives me reports on their outings and also mentions health issues that he may notice. He gave me great advice on a new food to help ease Andre's itchy skin too! He's very reliable and if there ever is something that comes up where he needs to miss an outing I am always given plenty of time to make alternative arrangements. Most importantly, Andre loves him!

Dominique and Huey are awesome. Promt, professional and great communicaotes. They totally understand the needs of my little guy. They seamlessly integrated him into their pack, which isn't an easy task as my dog isn't a fan of other dogs. But it's been great. He comes he happy and exhausted. I couldn't be happier.

The team at Small Paws Big Love was so accommodating and so understanding when we introduced them to our rather nervous mini dachshunds. They took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions to make sure everyone felt good about moving forward, and now our dogs love them! They are so responsive and also take care of the details when they see that something needs to be taken care of at home (ex: they notice when we forget to leave the radio on for the pups, and they'll turn it on). Love working with them and would highly recommend them!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
