We called Dee Cee because our daughter's new 3 month old Gampr puppy and our 5 year old Australian Shepherd could NOT get along. It was causing an incredible amount of tension in our home and the dogs were both extremely stressed. Our Aussie and the puppy could not be in the same room at the same time and if they were there was a fight. I wish I could say all of the fights have stopped, we remain a work in progress. But after just one visit our doggies are friendly. They share toys, space and this morning they even shared a doggie bed! THIS would not have happened last week.. Thank you!! DeeCee for your help and expertise. Everyone is AMAZED.

We hired Becky and her team to watch our 3 cats while we were away on vacation. She didn't just come over to feed them like some other cat sitting services do, Becky went above and beyond. She cleaned the litter boxes daily, cleaned up their messes, played with my cats, sent me adorable photos of them, got my mail and even fixed my front door's lock! It was so relieving to be able to have full trust and reliability in a service for once. Becky and her team's professionalism and love for animals is top notch and I will definitely use her services again.

Nothing but positive things to say. Contacted Cynthia and Darren less than a week prior to my week-long vacation seeing if they could sit our cat and bunny. They said it was no problem, came to our house to meet our pets the night I called. While we were gone, they left texts on arrival and departure each night, sent pics and videos. We felt great knowing our pets were in such good hands while we were gone. Cynthia and Darren's genuine love for animals shines through in their attitude and enthusiasm for the job. Highly recommend!

This review is long overdue. We worked with Dave a few months back and he is fantastic! My husband and I have a 19month old Goldendoodle who has had previous training, puppy training through Petsmart and Petco but none of it compared to the training we received from Dave. He is great at what he does and explains things in a way that make total sense, like why didn't I think of this before?! He uses positive reinforcement training, which was huge for us. Dave works with your schedule and is flexible, he emails you after every session to go over what you've learned and how to continue the training when he's not around. We see a total difference in our dog after having sessions with Dave, we are looking forward to having him back in the near future to continue our training!

Alison went above and beyond caring for our cat, boxer. I could not have been more pleased, and I will definitely call upon her in the future. She is a genuine caring person and boxer and I both agree she is a friend for life. I highly recommend alison for anyone looking for a stress free pet sitting experience. She stayed at our home for a week and kept me updated throughout. Bless her heart.

Miki is a real pro. She knows and love dogs and I was so comfortable leaving my 5 month old Goldendoodle with her over the weekend. She kept me updated with texts and great photos and gave me a full report on my puppy's activities for the weekend. I completely trust her plus she's hilarious!

We started with Cortney a couple weeks ago & mu Pups love her! She's been very professional & responsive and we look forward to working with her. On a side note, I have 2 very active Australian Cattle Dogs & today I just happened to be home when she arrived, but upstairs. There was the typical noise at the front door, but only for a quick moment & by the time I got downstairs I thought they had already left on their walk because it was so quiet! Both the dogs were sitting quietly in their "place" command as she prepared their leashes. I've never seen them respond that quickly to anyone but me! Yay! Thanks Cortney!

Due to an illness I've been dealing with I haven't been able to maintain my " little" dog Billie's walk/ run schedule Like she needs, so she had put on a few lb', and worse yet ....seemed more depressed than I!! She just wasn't the dog I knew her to be. It broke my heart. Then I found Susan.... Susan came into our lives and within a week, I kid you not... That puppy smile returned to her face! After over a year of several dog walkers and even medications... I don't know what her secret is but Billie is happier than ever!! And so am I, Susan is always on time, smiling, prepared and a just a delight. Billie sits and edits by the door for her now Every day AND is already back into her skinny jeans !! I feel so much better knowing my little girl is do well taken care of, with someone that adores my dog and treats her just as if she we're her own. THANKS SUSAN !!!

Tomika is a great pet sitter and did an OUTSTANDING job taking care of my cat. He thought she was the bees knees too. She not only fed him, she kept his box clean, played with him and kept him comfortable. I highly recommend Out for a Walk for sitting your cats and dogs!

To Whom it may concern: When I re-located to the Los Angeles area, one of my priorities was to find someone to pet-sit my Jack Russell Terrier, Maggie. Prior to moving, I had an ideal set up where Maggie could stay with a family, feel comfortable and loved, and be safe. I was able to find this ideal set up again with Jo-Jeanne. She is extremely reliable, professional, and I always felt I could leave Maggie with Jo-Jeanne and have a truly carefree vacation. I would highly recommend Jo-Jeanne for any petsitting/housesitting jobs. (She is also great with gardens and plants!!) Sincerely, Nancy Neal 818.330.9147

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!

I am taking care of my daughter's large Golden Retriever but am not able to walk to dog. Jennifer walked our dog for several days and helped give her a bath. Jennifer is reliable, caring and the dog loves her.

I have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.
