Excellent. Great listening skills, very perceptive with a great knowledge about canine behavior — in particular— rescue dogs. She gave some sound advice on acclamating a new rescue dog with our dog Trixie that has been with us for 8 years (she is 10). Her helpful techniques and insights have been paying off.
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!
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!
she was here a long time trying to get my dog to be friends with her---but my dog would not co-operate
Jenn is the only game in town if you need care for your pet. We tried a few pet care services but when Jenn took over there was no one else for our dog, Cooper. The thing that sets Jenn apart from others is that hers is not just a service. Jenn's love and concern for animals is genuine and evident in the care that she gives them. That's why we've had her care for our dog for over 10 years! We highly recommend Jenn's Pet Care.
We got a young rescue dog Yasik, a lab mix with a dominance streak, a year ago. Joyce (Bred for Life) has guided us through a stepwise training method in weekly sessions in our house. Yasik turned gradually from a non-stop holy terror to a responsive member of the household. Amazing, impressive, real results. Joyce not only knows what she is doing but she is graced with solid communicative skills and an outgoig good nature. Thumbs up 100%, recommending strongly.
Great trainer. She knows how to communicate with my dog and the dog loves her.
Prima Donna has been taking care of our dog since she was a puppy. When Donna first came to meet with us she was the first person to make our puppy feel comfortable. Now for the past year and a half our dog has has been loving her walks, hikes and play dates with Deb, Donna and Rob. She leaves with her tail wagging and comes home ready for a nap. Also, you get updates and can check out awesome action shots on Facebook. Prima Donna is professional, reliable and most importantly they LOVE animals. I recommend them without reservation and am SO happy to have found them!
I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!
Gus has just started walking my dog this week during the day while I'm at work. My dog is shy and within a couple of sessions, he warmed up to Gus and now he wags his tail when he hears him at the door. I am very pleased with Gus' service.
My dog is old and he was way, way past due for a grooming. Alyssa did a very nice job and was very patient...she took her time and my dog. Survived the whole experience in great shape...and he looks good
Super professional!!! Exceptionally personable! Rick has treated our dog Maximo like a member of his own family!! We are thankful to have found a dog walking/sitting service with genuine and caring service!!!
She is a true animal lover. My dog loved her. I am leaving my dog with her over Thanksgiving and know she will be totally cared for and probably spoiled a little!
The dog walking was great I was out of town and my husband was at work all day she text message me to let me know that everything was going well and I would definitely have her back again.
I have used Blue Dawg Pet Sitting a number of times. I have never had a problem. Chris is great and my dog is always well taken care of. I highly recommend Chris and will continue to bring my dog to him.
rose has agreed to care for my young mischievous Siamese cat....we enjoyed a pleasant visit...hope to give her "real time" in April, and jult
Can't say enough about the progress our Cane Corso has 'leaped' in Michelle's care. She's young (our dog Blu) and a bit scary, as we found out from the two other walkers we used before finding Michelle. Blu has SERIOUS separation anxiety, accompanied with the usual territorial issues while we're away from the house. Michelle was able to bond with Blu right off the bat & has truly helped transform her into the gentle lady we knew she could be. So, thank you Michelle! We highly recommend Michelle, she is so much more than just a 'dog walker', she is a dear soul to us & one of Blu's best friends
It's difficult to find someone to care for your pets like you do. At the same time, it's difficult to find someone who you can trust in your home. Michele did all of that and more. I came home from a week long vacation to a very happy dog and cat with no signs of separation anxiety, which has happened with other pet sitters in the past. She even took it upon herself to take the time to brush them daily. If you need a reliable, trustworthy, competent pet sitter, Michele is all that and more.
Our puppy loved him, we loved him, very professional and reliable. Great response for last minute notice. Very caring for dogs and have a lot of patience
Prior to working with Joann, I had another dog walker who would take my dog out every day. They did not get along and eventually it got to the point that my dog refused to go out on walks, and would growl at the presence of my dog walker. Shortly thereafter, I switched to Joann and she has since handled my dog with aplomb. He loves her, going for walks, and has a renewed vigor about him with respect to going for walks. Working with Jo has been extremely easy. She is flexible, kind, responsive, and attentive to the needs of my dog. She takes the extra initiative often, and it certainly does not go unnoticed from my end. I couldn't recommend her enough for her services. If you live in the Black Rock area and need a dog walker, Jo is your person!
Jodi took great care of my dogs.
