Absolutely wonderful. Gennaro almost immediately responded to our request and came to our house the same day to do a visual and service estimate. The price was absolutely reasonable and his service was prompt and professional. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone in need of lawn care.

I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.

They took care of our dog Phoebe. When we got home Phoebe was well taken care of as if she was their own dogs. Will always use Cupidpets.

Jody came over for our first session last night and it was wonderful! She took all the time we needed to talk through a variety of dog behavioral topics, answering all our questions and giving us a lot of advice, including advice outside of the scope of basic training or what we had discussed initially. She brought interactive food dispensing toys to show us, gave us handouts of what we talked about, and showed us how to work on specific commands, coaching us through it. Jody also educated us on a lot of different ways to ensure our dog is safe, healthy, and mentally/physically stimulated - I really appreciated how we looked at how to care for and work with our dog on the whole, not simply to teach commands. The entire session was so helpful to us, and Jody was a pleasure to work with! We're excited for either more one-on-one sessions and/or a class with Social Tailwaggers!

Orla took care of our cat for a week while we were away and she was fantastic! She first visited to meet all of us and learn as much as possible about the kitty, and she shared her approach to working with pets and specially cats. Her daily reports while cat sitting were terrific, with a summary of each visit, pictures and videos, and also comments and observations on our kitty’s daily behavior, mood, eating, and litter box habits. I’ll definitely hire Orla again!

Haywood and his team are true professionals in the dog training world. They are superb in helping any dog, of any age or behavior, become better mannered, and safer to have in public. They understand dogs, and translate that expertise into practical, effective training programs for both the owners and the dogs. The important aspect is the owner is trained to reinforce the new behaviors. Haywood ensures that basic commands are learned by both dog and owner before they leave his care. Once you meet Haywood and his team, you won't go anywhere else. We did the the dog day care program, and we're heading back for more advanced training in the Fall. We've gone from being afraid to take our reactive dog out for walks, to being confident and comfortable walking anywhere thanks to the folks at Academy Dog Training.

Sharon is amazing! She makes our three dogs feel right at home with her sweet dogs. She sends pics and texts throughout the day/stay of our pets. They are treated like part of her pack and the peace of mind that they are happy is invaluable. Thanks Sharon!

We have hired Jen's to walk our dogs daily and so far it is fabulous just having the piece of mind knowing our dogs don't have to be in the house all day while we are at work.

Elizabeth has taken care of my pets for years. I have had her care for cats, dogs, and small mammals. Being a board certified LVT she is the next best thing to having an actual doctor watch your pet. If your animal needs special care or has special needs Elizabeth is the best in the field.
