Stephanie was wonderful. She came and stayed at our home for one week, and fed our dog and cat, and did the walking of the dog as indicated and emptying of the cat box as instructed. In addition to doing what she was hired for, for a very affordable price, Stephanie was also very responsive to questions before she began sitting for us, and was available to talk over the phone during the time that we were away. In addition to all of this, she was available for an introductory "meet and greet." We liked her immediately and plan to use her services again in the future!
I having nothing but good things to say about this company. Natasha is very friendly, exceedingly professional, and most importantly great with dogs. My dog can be skittish at times, and initially he did not want to leave the house to go on walks with Natasha. She was very patient, worked with him over several visits, and now he gets excited whenever she comes. She was so patient with him, and it gives me great peace-of-mind knowing that she is there to visit with him on days when I have to work late.
Our Waggy Walkys dog walker is wonderful.
I used Canine Dominion to help me with my aggressive dog. My dog would go after other animals and sometimes people. Jauvarie the owner took a special interest in my case and came out to help. When the lessons was over my dog was a completely different dog. Jauvarie's knowledge and skills are amazing. I would definitely reomment him to my friends.
Vicki was a wonderful trainer who managed to help us train our 1yo rescue, Penny. She provided tips, advice, and made amazing suggestions to practice while not in training sessions. In the course of 6 weeks, Penny learned several obedience commands (stay, leave it, wait, etc) as well as tricks (sit, down, paw, crawl, etc.) Penny was difficult to teach when we first got her and although I have had a dog before, I have never had a puppy/younger pup and she wasn’t a good listener until we saught help from Paw Patrol of VA, LLC. Vicki was very flexible with our schedule, understanding of our ongoing frustrations in trying to teach her obedience, and was able to help us change our body language and tone to teach Penny what we wanted her to do. After the first 2 sessions, Penny recognized Vicki when she came to our home and LOVED school (mostly because she loves attention, praise, and training treats). I am so thankful my husband and I agreed to get a trainer for Penny and we really lucked out with Vicki. Thank you Vicki, Brittany and Sadie for your kindness. We would gladly hire Vicki again in the future and recommend her to others in the area!
Barking Trails has proven an excellent daily dog walking service for my three little ones!
I am a Dog Trainer in the Northern Virginia area. For the past four years, after I am done training with my clients, I send them over to Cupid Pets. I looked around at other dog walking and pet sitting companies and none of them meet my standards like Cupid Pets has for my dogs and previous clients.
I couldn't be happier with the training that we've received from Social Tailwaggers. Jodie, our trainer. is so patient and very knowledgeable. The first time we met, we discussed what training I was interested in and what goals we were trying to achieve for my dog, Cooper. Cooper was around 10-11 months old when we began our first training session. She immediately began to introduce new skills and commands to work on training Cooper. After each lesson, Jodie sends a detailed email outlining all of the skills we worked on and suggestions to help with practicing on my own. Jodie was also helpful with recommendations on types of toys and feeding bowls to help with the energy level of my dog. I would highly recommend Social Tailwaggers to anyone who needs help training a new puppy or an older dog. It is well worth the time, money and effort to have a well trained dog and not only are you going to have a well trained, better behaved dog, it's also a lot of fun time spent with your dog.
We've been using Petstigious Pets dog walking services since the end of December and we couldn't be happier. The company owners met with us on short notice and were able to accommodate our requests. We are very happy with the exceptional level of professionalism and near immediate responsiveness via text messages. They even send daily report cards with a photo or two of your animal. We highly recommend this company.
We were VERY happy with Kim's dog sitting services! Kim took absolutely great care of our Pomsky and our Great Dane and sent us pictures every time she visited our house. She is responsible, punctual and our dogs love her!
Karen has been walking my youngest dog and taking out my other 3 dogs for the past 2 years. She has been absolutely wonderful and loves and treats my dogs as if they are her own. She's also done an extended overnight stay while we were out of town. I wouldn't trust anymore more than I trust Karen. She has been amazing and gives me daily updates as well to how everything went!
Hired them for daily 15 min walk for my dog. Reliable and they provide small reports for how his walk went. Andre has been very responsive to any schedule changes and questions I've had regarding their services.
Jade was very professional. She took the time for my dog Bob to get comfortable with her. Jade has a great way with my dog.
Could not be happier w/ Fabiola. She clearly cares deeply about our four-legged friends and takes a personal interest. We recently had a situation where there was a potential emergency with my dog before she arrived for a walk (ate some potentially toxic). Fortunately it was just a scare and nothing happened, but Fabiola contacted me and we were able to handle it and my dog is doing fine.
Melina is great. Had her come for a finicky dog and two cats. They were very happy with her administrations and we loved her daily messages and pictures. Very professional.
I LOVE C-PUP! We have used them over the past few years and they are fantastic! Shannon (owner) is very professional, thorough in interviewing dog(s) owner(s), getting detailed information on what the needs and desires are of owners and pets!!! She is incredibly organized and meticulous in ensuring that pets and owners may leave each other with an easy mind. All of her staff have been generous, patient, lovely people who treat us (humans and pets) with great care! A detailed report card is left at each visit outlining the activities our dogs performed, their affect, and notes on the overall visit. We have traveled and used C-PUP for home stays and also as a dog walking service. Our dogs have become so familiar with C-PUP staff that it's as if another family member is with them. Wonderful, wonderful people and service. I can't say enough good things about Shannon and C-PUP! I recommend them to anyone and everyone expressing an interest in pet services. Our dogs love them; we love them!
Walks N Love is a loving, responsible pet sitting/walking company that I would highly recommend. We used their services for at least 5 years and they truly made a difference in our beloved 15 year old Jack Russell Terrier's life. They gave our "JR" daily doses of the mess he needed & massaged him when walking was difficult due to Arthritis. JR was truly our child & at the end of his life was in awesome hands during the day while we worked. Walks N Love truly made a difference in our dog's life!
I've used DoggyDawgs for about a year. My dog loves the walkers and they are very responsive and accommodating when I need to switch schedule. Highly recommend the whole company and the amazing workers.
Spoiled Pawz has been excellent. Caroline has been walking my dog for more than 5 years and he just loves her. She is part of his family and daily routine. I trust her completely with my best buddy.
I had one a day 30 minute walks for my dog during the day and it went wonderfully! I received a picture every walk which I really appreciated and a run down of what they did. It was very comforting knowing my dog was in good hands and I trusted the team with access to my apartment.
Great service! Carlos and Jocelyn were responsive, professional, and took great care of my dog. And my dog loves them. Happy to have found them on Thumbtack!
