I had a private training session with Dee Cee, and it was worth every penny! She has a real passion for training dogs and she is very respectful, clear, thorough and effective. My dog Gubi has behavior problems and Dee Cee came up with methods that immediately worked! She also gave me great tools and tips to use in the future. I was so impressed with Gubi's progress in just a day and I feel like I know my dog much better now. Thank you Dee Cee!!
Could not have been more pleased with Becky and Charlotte! We met prior to going out of town and they were extremely thorough. I felt comfortable leaving for vacation knowing our dog Hermie was in good hands. Constant updates allowed to us to enjoy our time away. Thank you!
I was very excited to hear Superstar Pet Sitting and Dog Walking had expanded to my area in the Valley. My sister lives in the South Bay and has raved about using them to walk her dogs daily and when they travel they use there house sitting services. I hired them to walk my dogs twice a day and couldn't be happier. My pets are everything to me and I feel very secure knowing when I am at work or traveling my 2 dogs and cat are well taken care of. Highly recommended.
I was extremely pleased with the service my dogs received from Pit Stop Dog Walking and Pet Care! Marnae sent me pictures and texts during the time she spent with my dogs and that provided me with a great sense of ease and trust. Upon returning home, I could tell that my dogs were very happy that they had an outing with Marnae! She is very easy to work with and was very cooperative with our schedule! I will definitely use her in the future! I recommend her to anyone who loves their dogs and wants the best pet care for their animals! -Anthony and Terra Huerta (with Boomer and Roxy).
We LOVE Cindy! After recently moving back to LA, she’s been the great addition to our family. Our dog, Clarence, leaps when she arrives and has thrived in the routine of being with Cindy and the other dogs Monday through Friday. She sends photos, organizes grooming, and cares deeply about her work. We feel incredibly grateful and trust her completely. We couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Angela did a wonderful job looking after our fur kids! We have one dog, two kitties and a foster kitty that she watched over. She walked our dog twice a day, played with the kitties and even brought our mail in! She will send you updates and pictures if you ask her to. I highly recommend her, she did a great job!
The Dawson Family loves Love Ur K9! Kevin and his team have done wonders with our dog. Since we've had Love Ur K9 help us train our beagle, our beagle can stay in down position for an hour, walk by our side with her head up on leash, and can control her howling. The best part about Love Ur K9 is that this team heavily involves the owners; they'll teach you about the training they are doing with your dog, so that when your dog comes home, you can continue to improve upon your dog's behavior!
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 !!!
Shes amazing!! She came in and took total control of my dog. He listened and did what he was told. Shes affordable,knowledgeable, really loves dogs, and just an overall very nice person. I believe shes going to have my dog trained in no time.
We are still working with Dave, and are really happy we chose him--he's chock full of great advice that actually applies to our dog, Eleanor, and is working!
Shane is great with my dog!
Susan is not just a loving care taker of my dog, Max and my cat, Sir Purrs A Lot, but I think she's actually an animal whisperer. She is my daily dog-walker and has also house/dog/cat sat for a week at a time on many occasions. I completely trust her and know that my animals are in great care when she is with them. I would recommend her highly.
Danielle is amazing with my Little yorkie snickers. He is a senior dog, about to be 12 and is going blind. She is extremely patient and kind with him, he is newly blind so walking him can sometimes be a little intimidating because he doesn’t move as fast, Danielle handles it like a champ! She has also been a savior when I’m working long days and I need someone to stop by and feed snickers, walk him, give him some love and some cuddles. Not to mention her prices are very reasonable! I highly recommend Danielle for all your dog walking and boarding needs! She is the sweetest!!
Michael has been walking my dog Kona for years and I can honestly say that he is the BEST in the biz. Not only is he such a wonderful person, but he also just cares so much about my pup! She is very protective of me and our house, but from the moment she met him, she loved him. The two of them have such a strong bond. I can't even tell you how amazing it is to know that long term or short term, Kona will be so well taken care of. If I'm going away for the weekend, or if I have a really long day on set, I know that I won't have to worry about Kona because I know she's having a great day. He's also always so quick to text me back if I have a question, or update me on her day and he loves to send pictures. And as a crazy dog mama... I love pictures. I honestly can't say enough great things about Michael!
Teresa is a loving and caring with my dog. She is very professional and is reliable. She always on time and if you have to make a small adjustment to your schedule she is flexible. I am very grateful to have found Teresa. I hope to be working with her for a long time. Tania D
I needed someone to watch my two dogs for a long weekend while I was out of town. The difficulty I had was one was over 18 yrs old, blind, deaf and needed medication and the other wasn't real old, 9, but needed a lot of exercise. I was so relieved when I left my dogs with Leslie because she sent me pictures of both of them several times a day, the older one sleeping peacefully and the other one playing in the yard with others. I was worried because my old dog is also a very fussy eater and was afraid while I was gone she might not eat and get even skinnier, but to my surprise she ate and was in good spirits as evidenced by the photos. I used to put off going away for weekends and short trips for a week or so because of my dogs but now I know I don't have to worry. When I returned from my trip they looked so happy. Maybe too happy! LOL I was afraid they wouldn't want to come home since they liked it with her so much. I just would like to let everyone know that if you are like me and your dogs are your "kids" and one of them is really aged there is no reason you'd need to worry if you over nighted them with Leslie. I give her five out of five because she went over and above my expectations every time she sent me a photo of the dogs doing various things which made me very confident and happy. Thank you Leslie for taking good care of my babies!
Arlene was easy to communicate with, flexible, and arrived promptly. She was very respectful of our dogs anxiety and waited until the dog was ready to pet her or show affection. She is thorough and made sure our girl had everything she needed at all times. She made sure to give her as many walks as our dog wanted/needed and fed her at our requested times. She also administered medication. It is clear that Arlene loves and respects animals! Highly recommended.
I have been using this service for years. I have come to trust, love, and rely on Sabina and her team to care for and support my Zoie and Tucker when needed. when it comes to my two dogs who are my children and my loves, I trust nobody else like I do Sabina and Pet’s Nanny. You will never go wrong with using pet’s nanny. ♥️
Trent is nothing short of an ideal partner in our pet care. We instantly felt comfortable with him upon first meeting and it is beyond clear that our puppy is benefitting from his care. He takes great care of the dog, our house and our peace of mind. Trent keeps us up to date on when he's with our pup and when he leaves. He's extremely flexible and reliable. We cannot recommend Trent highly enough for your pet needs!!
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.
It's amazing how fast my dogs behaviour changed due to K9 Vacay! Hiring her is a must if your dog is a complete bratt! I literally saw change the first time she met my dog. My dog just just listened to her and behaved soo much better. She taught me how I should treat my dog and how to react in different situations. Amazing experience! I would definitely recommend K9 Vacay to anyone with a fur baby. If she helped my Siberian Husky, she can help any dog!
