Corinn was super informative and answered all of our questions. Our little balls of terror obeyed her instantly upon arrival. Within 15 min she had our newest puppy sitting and waiting for a treat. By the time she was finished we had everything we needed to further instill the lessons that she showed us. We even had her come back a second time to help with leash pulling which we are working towards currently. Overall I would highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed.

100% wonderful. First time I felt hope for my puppy and my old dog getting along. She even taught puppy how to sit in about 5 mins. You won’t regret it.

Just had first cleaning & have to say overall Priscilla did a wonderful job. She's a pleasure to work with, very professional, accommodating & nonintrusive. Would highly recommend her & will be using her on a regular basis. If you're thinking of hiring someone, you will not be disappointed! And to make your life even easier, she also walks dogs if needed?

I am so so happy with Priscilla. She came right when expected, cleaned out home thoroughly and timely and even arranged the stuffed animals on on our kids' beds to make them so happy. I loved smelling my home right when I walked in, so fresh and clean. A+!

Pricilla does an excellent job. My house is sparkling and smells wonderful when she leaves. Somehow she's able to get every bit of dog hair and dust. I trust her enough to leave my house while she's cleaning, which says so much!

Snaggle Foot came twice daily to care for our two cats and our lizard while we were away on our honeymoon. This was a gift from the groom's mother, who had done a lot research into pet sitters in the New Haven area and found Snaggle Foot to have the best combination of flexible service and competitive rates. From the beginning, everything was very professional; Judy S visited our home and gave an overview of the service and inquired about other things we might possibly need (mail, plants, etc). She also asked about our pets' special needs (none in our case) and became familiar with the location of food, litter, treats, toys, etc. The service we received was fantastic -- we received updates daily/every other day (sometimes with photos) and never had any doubt that our pets were in the best of hands. When we returned home, the litter box was sparkling clean, and our cats didn't have that typical starved-for-attention-for-days attitude that they give us when we're only gone overnight. I would highly recommend Snaggle Foot for your pet care needs!

I can highly recommend Snaggle Foot Dog Walks and Pet Care. I originally hired Judy and her team to walk my little dog once a week, but as you all know plans change and the need became greater than 1 x a week. Judy was very flexible and was able to walk/feed calie to accommodate the extra days/times. there was one time when I needed someone overnight, Judy took my dog to her home for an over night stay. She was so relaxed and happy coming home. If you need a dog walker/dog sitter I can highly recommend Snaggle Foot. If I had not relocated I would still be using them today.

Couldn't be happier with the service and will definitely be calling again for future pet sitting needs! They are professional, reliable, friendly, trustworthy, and so much more! Riley and Judy are fantastic. They sent photos and updates at every scheduled walk so we could enjoy our vacation with peace of mind knowing they were in great hands.

I am absolutely thrilled with the way Sing Lui groomed my dog Pickwick. He can be difficult around strangers sometimes but he immediately felt comfortable with her. Sing understood exactly what kind of cut I wanted and he looks absolutely adorable. She worked quickly and neatly and even told me what kind of brush I should be using on him. I would gladly work with her again and highly recommend her to others.

Sing was very nice & gentle with my dogs. I would recommend her. She did both of my dogs. For the convenience and the fact that my dogs don't have to sit in a cage for many hours. I will happily have her come again.

Niamh was amazing. Not only did she help us with handling our puppy, she helped us handle ourselves with our puppy. Her experience really showed. She took our little girl from laying down and cowering and shaking when she saw a car, to sniffing the grass as one was driving by. All in a few minutes. I loved how she reinforced that she does not judge anyone's methods, she may just tweak them a bit to help the learning process. Her positive nature, and the calmness she projected really brought us the confidence we needed as pet owners, while making it an easy learning experience for us and our puppy. The evening after she left was a better evening than we've had in a long time! Thank you!!!

Niamh is really wonderful to work with. My husband and I got a young mini dachshund puppy named Pickles and as first time dog owners needed help house breaking and training him. Niamh has made several in home visits and has taught us so much. She has also allowed Pickles to visit her home to meet her amazing family and dogs. This helped socialize Pickles and has taught him to be confident around new people and other pets. My husband and I recommend her services to any dog owners in need. She is truly reliable, knowledgable, and very kind hearted. She even has background as a nurse and veterinary technician! Pickles, my husband, and I are so happy to have her :)

Jill has a very positive attitude toward our two rather sensitive and wary dogs. Her loving and calming effect has our dogs waiting at her feet with wagging tails. They LOVE her after only one visit! Jill is a professional, kind, caring and honest person. We don't use pet sitters regularly -- it's those last-minute weekend vacations or times when we work late and need someone to come and care for them. She always makes herself available and ensures our dogs are not only fed and given fresh water, but that they get their regular, long walks. We are so lucky to have found Jill.

Jill is amazing. My dog loved her at "first sight". She is very responsible, flexible and sensitive. We just moved here and I have a 8 month old puppy which is still shy and a bit confused with the new environment. Jill takes it easy with him but also learns him to adapt. She is also very flexible when it comes to scheduling and always tries to find the perfect solution. I am very happy with her

Sarah truly cares about your pet. She has done an excellent job aiding me in walking and training my Old English Bulldog.

Lisa was awesome! She gave Montana her own vacation while we were gone, and when I came to pick her up I could tell she loved Lisa! Montana came home exhausted from all the fun she had! Her backyard is like a dogs paradise and she would send me pics of Montana having fun with the other dogs, and texts just to let me know how Montana was doing, which was awesome. I'm so glad that I came into contact with Lisa and will be using her services again. Definitely recommend her to anyone that wants a home like stay for their dog rather than a kennel. She was awesome!

I just want to tell you how much I (on behalf of CT Baptist Homes, Senior Community) appreciate the Pet Therapy you help us provide. This is so valuable and deeply appreciated. Our residents and staff all look forward to the dog(s) coming and we see so many heartwarming responses. As you know our population is composed of memory impaired and senior population. It is exciting as well as gratifying to me to see most of our residents ( mostly animal lovers) respond so well to the dog(s). The dogs are not only a pleasant experience but also an important memorable one that we would not otherwise have without you . Memories are triggered with wonderful reminiscing experiences. What you all do means so much to me both personally and professionally! Thank you for all work and spirit. Robin, a BIG THANK YOU for making all our "ruff" days much more enjoyable!

My dog loves Robin! And so do I. Always on time and always staying late! So polite. I was very nervous about starting training with my dog because she is very high-energy and she is already three years old. Robin reassured me that with all of her experience things should go fine and she was right. Taking my dog for a walk has become enjoyable instead of a chore. Huge improvements and such a reasonable price. Thank you Robin!!

Joyce is fantastic!! My husband and I had a three-month old wheaten terrier puppy when we hired Joyce. We were looking for help with potty training, basic obedience, leashing walking and helping our little guy become a part of our family. We cannot say enough positive things about what Joyce and her training methods have done for us. Our puppy was at ease immediately with Joyce and loves his training sessions. He has come leaps and bounds in his training using her easy to follow methods and improves after every session. After a few short months, he follows commands, is almost house broken and actually listens to us now! Joyce is professional, flexible with scheduling, kind, and very affectionate with our puppy. It's obvious how much she is a natural with animals. We also use Joyce for boarding when traveling. We are confident that our puppy is in safe, capable and loving hands when he spends time at Joyce's house with her (and Corcega!). She'll even send photos, videos and multiple daily calls and texts with updates for you, the individual service she provides for your pup is so much better than doggie daycare. If you are looking for a dog trainer, dog walker or a happy place for your dog when you're away on vacation, we highly recommend Joyce and her services to any dog owner.

Exceptional service - my experience with Kira, Miguel, and the Animal Allies team has been a blessing for both me and my dog. They really catered to our needs and showed such compassion and dedication. I signed my dog up for the "energy-buster" package, which he benefitted from tremendously. I really felt safe leaving him in their care and appreciated their professionalism and consistency, the interactive digital updates, and the useful feedback regarding any questions or concerns. Scheduling and payments are easy to manage, and the specialized package pricing is unbeatable - especially since they really go above and beyond to customize routines based on your pet's specific needs. Miguel, who ended up walking my dog every week, was an absolute lifesaver, he took outstanding care of Alfie and always made sure that they had a lot of fun on their outings. Overall, this experience has been extremely positive, and I cannot recommend them enough. These folks genuinely love animals and care about enriching their lives, and it makes all the difference. It has made me so happy to see my dog so much happier, and for that, I cannot thank Animal Allies enough.

Having never used a pet sitting service before, I was very concerned about my cats being taken care of during my vacation. I posted my pet sitting job on Thumbtack and Kira of Animal Allies Pet Service was the first qualified person to respond. Kira provided references that I could contact for referrals. The references said nothing but great things about Kira. Kira patiently answered my many questions via email and we set up a time for a meet-n-greet with the cats at my apartment. She arrived on time. We talked for awhile and then went over their care routine. I gave Kira my house keys and I left the next morning knowing that I had a great person taking care of my cats. While I was away, Kira took care of my cats, watered my plants, got my mail and provided me with a daily update on my cats including pics via her client portal. I felt comfortable leaving my cats with her just knowing her extensive animal care background and training. I highly recommend considering Kira if you need a pet sitter. I will use Kira's pet sitting services again when I travel. Great experience. Thank you for everything Kira.

Animal allies pet service did an incredible job looking after my cat, and I could not speak more highly of kira. My cat was recovering from surgery when I had to leave town, and Kira provided him with the best care I could have hoped for - she handled all his meds with ease and made him feel comfortable even in his weakened state. Moreover she provided me with regular updates and made me feel like I was hardly even away. I have already hired Kira again to look after my cat during my subsequent travels, and I fully trust her to take amazing care of my cat. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

They've been sending pics, updates on how the pets were doing. They also did a great job with my pet that's handicapped. Everything was great! They also had the courtesy to stay longer to wait for me and make sure I'm on my way back. They were beyond we expect from an average service. I would recommend them to anyone we know looking for a pet sitter!

I have two cats. One is a cranky territorial male who can be hostile to strangers. I have had several cat sitters who were intimated by him and needed to have a water gun handy to deal with him. But Kim, who has worked with feral cats, knew just how to handle him. Her calm demeanor (and treats) went a long way to forge a trust that allowed her to come into the house and take care of both my cats. I would definitely hire her again!

Sarah has cared for our cat, Black Jack, on numerous occasions, sometimes for up to three weeks. The first thing I'd say is that I never have to worry about the care he's getting when I'm away. He's always well-fed and content, his litter is always clean, and Sarah spends time petting and playing with him. Over the years, Sarah has also cared for our other cats who required medication and special attention and she has proved herself adept and diligent. Sarah was caring for Black Jack and our other cat, Lola, when Lola passed away. I cannot begin to describe how caring and thoughtful she was, both to Lola and to us. She is a young woman who clearly loves animals and knows how to take excellent care of them. Both my husband and I feel lucky to have such a conscientious and caring pet sitter.

Robin loves my dogs & the feeling is mutual! She has stayed in my home 24/7 for @ least 8 days @ a time, also day sits. They love to see her & run after she whens she leaves. Been using her for over 15 years & never worry about my dogs when she's minding them. Always on time, always follows up w/anything that requires my attention. Excellent in any so-called emergency I might have while I'm away. Five stars plus!!
