Karen is amazing - she is attentive, informative, and very considerate of the concerns I have as a pet owner. She introduced training tactics to me that will help me establish a respectful relationship with my dog. It's training that is beneficial for both me and my dog. I can't wait to continue the working relationship with her and Abby!
Dee Cee came to our apartment and within half an hour I saw immense improvement in the relationship between the dog and the cat. She gave us excellent advice and doesn't ask for repeat sessions. I really appreciated her forthcomingness in not giving us any promises but the promise that she was giving us the tools to succeed.
Roberts background is very impressive, that's why I chose him. Robert also has a unique style of training that I haven't seen before. Most importantly I'm getting the results and my pet isn't stressed, she's happy! If you want to have a loving and bonding relationship with your pet get a trainer. Finding a good trainer isn't easy. Save yourself from frustrating experiences and hirer the very best. You'll be extremely happy you chose Robert, I am!
Cindy took care of my dog and my daughter's 2 dogs for 4 days over the Thanksgiving holiday. We are very happy with their overall concern and good care. Cindy and Darren go beyond the call of duty in all ways! Our dogs were new to boarding and were timid, afraid and confused the first day (two are rescues) but when we saw the pictures Cindy texted us of all three in their beds all happy and resting we knew they were all in good hands. We would recommend them highly for their individual and loving care to each of our dogs. Thanks again!!!!! Marilee and Eliza ( We also feel like we made two amazing new friends!)
Pit Stop Dog Walking and Care is a top notch pet service. I couldn't be more pleased with them. They treat my dog with love and respect. I'm so happy I found them.
Really helped with our out of control dog. Taught him (and then us) how to get him under control; sitting, staying etc. We boarded our dog for over two weeks while he was being trained. Dog seemed happy and wanting to work on the things he learned. We would definitely use them again.
She is very caring. She loves working with your pets. Our dogs responded to her great training
I brought my 2 year old male pit bull to Kevin 6 months ago when my dog started experiencing some significant leash aggression towards other dogs. The problem was getting progressively worse and I couldn't walk him with other dogs present (even on the other side of the street). Kevin took him in for training and there has been a huge improvement. My dog is able to walk normally on a leash (doesn't pull like crazy like he used to). He is able to see other dogs on his walk and no longer react (huge improvement!) and he is all around a better trained dog. After the training camp, I had several sessions with Kevin (and my dog walker) and Kevin taught us all the techniques and commands he had used with my dog. Kevin is very responsive and answers all of my questions promptly. I would highly recommend him for training for any dog issues. Kevin also takes dogs in for boarding where he does a little training refresher course. My dog has gone in multiple times since his training whenever I've had to go out of town and my dog really enjoys his time there.
Lisa has been walking and pet sitting my two dogs and two cats for five years. Her walks are always longer than the half hour I pay her for and my dogs come home well exercised and stimulated. When I'm not home, I trust her implicitly with my keys to my house and don't worry about a thing while I'm gone. When I'm away on vacation, the cats and dogs are so well taken care of, I couldn't ask for better. They are happy and content, even groomed. She texts me updates after each walk whether I'm home or away, will make runs to the pet store for me if I need it, will take the animals to the Vet or the park. Anything to do with pet care, she will do. I recommend Lisa's services for dog walking and all other pet care needs highly.
My dog Bambina usually suffers from separation anxiety, and in the care of Miki with Pupparazzi Pet care, she was so happy and relaxed she never realized i was away. Miki has a way with dogs and really understands them. I highly recommend !!!
If you hire Susan Wolfe--Don't feel guilty leaving your pet at home when you go away for the day or an extended period of time! If our cats and dogs could talk they would tell you--Susan speaks their language! Susan always took great care of our pets (and property) when she lived here on the east coast. She was great with our special needs/older pug. Our cat loves her too! Thanks for everything Susan and good luck!
Tracie took care of my cat and pet rat for a week while I was out of town. Both critters happy and healthy when I returned. Would definitely use again.
Daniele is an instinctual, thorough, heart centered, Cat & Dog Behaviorist / Whisperer. She has incredible knowledge about animals, she is literally a walking encyclopedia on the subject. Daniele has the ability to assess & evaluate your pet accurately based on their specific personality and then put together a complete training package to resolve any challenges you may be facing. Her process is quick, fun and very clear. She and her team are a complete one stop shop for pets. Anything you might need from nutritionalists, cage free doggie daycare, pet jewelry designers, homeopathic medicines and formulas, water therapists and even a pet massage therapist to mention a few. She is dedicated to not only your results but also to helping you get a deeper understanding of your pet so you'll be able to communicate to them more thoroughly with ease. I would highly recommend her with confidence to anyone who needs help with their pet... especially if it's a rescue pet she's AWESOME!
We used Randi to watch our dog at our house for a two week out of the country vacation. She was great! Texted us when anything came up, kept us apprised of anything going on with our dog, and also took great care of our house. When we returned from our vacation, our house was clean and neat and just the way we had left it. She followed our instructions to a "T in terms of both of our dog and our house. We had trouble getting home and had to return a day later, and she was flexible enough to be willing to stay with our dog one day more. I would highly recommend Randi for anyone looking for a pet sitter and in fact we will be using her again soon. Thank you.
To whom it may concern, I am writing to recommend Jo-Jeanne Rapier, whom I have known and employed for the past nine years. Jo-Jeanne provided day care, walks, medication administering, boarding, and transportation for my Border Collie, Cilla as well as house sitting, as I was often working out of town. Sometimes those jobs came on short notice and I came to rely heavily on her services and with her dependability, punctuality and trustworthiness, I was never disappointed. I always returned to a happy, healthy, and well groomed dog, my house in pristine condition, and with Jo-Jeannes green thumb, my garden always looked better than how I left it. In the final months of Cillas life, Jo-Jeannes compassionate care was invaluable. She doted on Cilla, as if she was her own, and made that difficult time in Cillas life, and mine, an easier transition. With Jo-Jeannes past involvement of running her own dog rescue, Abandoned Terrier Rescue Association, she is also a staunch advocate of animal rights. And I have witnessed first hand her skills and abilities in working with many kinds of animals and I would give her my highest recommendation with the care of any of your pets. If I can provide any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at: (818)-434-1123 Sincerely, Eric Sandlin
Lewis & Bark have been taking care of our dogs for the past 9 years. Our pups are taken to the dog park, on hikes and board with Lewis & Bark and they are always treated like Kings and Queens. Samantha treats all dogs as though they are a member of her family and we think of Samantha as a member of ours. We feel incredibly lucky to have Samantha & the entire Lewis & Bark team caring for our pups!!! They all play close attention to the pups and make sure that they are getting exercise and plenty of love! We had to be out of town when one of our pups was turning 12 and Lewis and Bark threw her a little party and sent us pictures!!. Come on!!! So Fantastic!!! (They send us pictures almost every day our pups are with them, whether it is hiking, dog park or boarding and you can always check instagram for more photos of your baby.) We never have to worry about the dogs when they are with Lewis & Bark. There are not enough words to say how amazing they are!
What a wonderful experience we and our pet have had with Redondo Dog Walker and Petsetting! Highly recommend Natalie.
I always get anxious when traveling and leaving my dog back in LA. I felt 100% less anxious knowing Kenny was watching Sammie. He knows dogs better than anyone I've met and understands my needs as well. I wouldn't dream of leaving my dog with anyone else!
We have a 3 1/2 year old cat that is new (2 weeks) to our family. The vet suggested that the cat stay home and not be boarded while we are on a short trip. George (Wiskers, Tails and Mail) was very understanding of our situation. He took excellent care of our cat and her new environment (litter box, feeding area, etc.). George also kept me informed on her activities while we were away. Utilizing the services of Wiskers, Tails and Mail was a huge relief during our time away. I highly recommend George and his company as they really provide more then pet sitting. They also supply peace of mind for the owner. P.S. I ran out of time to have the mail stopped and at the last minute George stepped into collect the mail on a daily basis. What a life saver! George and Lorna, thanks for everything!
I felt totally comfortable leaving my pets with Eva! I knew they were in good hands and with her knowledge about pet health (because of her career) put my mind even more at ease. I got pictures and text updates along the way which was awesome! My kittens love her! Definitely will be a repeat customer!! I don't think you'll find a person who loves cats more than her, even cats who don't belong to her :)
Her training was so helpful. I recommend her from my experience. My dog Craig , (Manchester terrier, male) had a trained by Natalie when he was 4 years old. Because he has a "hyper" personality, he needed a little discipline. I surprised how he changed after basic training. After Natalie gave him a basic behavior modification, his behavior has so much better than before. Craig became more calm, less barking at home, be able to walk with owner's pace when he walk. He also learned " Stay". Now he can sit and wait for his meal even for a 1minute ! He has been patient after trained with Natalie. She is trustworthy as well. I worried about relationship between dog and trainer at first, yet she was able to make good relationship. My dog trust her, and enjoyed training with her. Natalie gave us a great experience and knowledge.
