We just started utilizing crazy paws for our new puppy during the day. Tiaya is very knowledgeable and flexible. She has really put us at ease and we have loved working with her!
Jackie was such a tentative listener to our doggie training needs! She came over and consulted us, really listening to our challenges and gave us great tips to begin properly training our puppy. Her wide breadth of knowledge and experience really showed! We plan to continue using her services.
Sherry was very professional, helpful, and patient with both clients - canine and human
Amazing service! My dog loves when the walkNeed anything for your boat this season? ers come. Very professional and always on time. Not my first walking service, but certainly the best! Thank you!
So far I just had my first session with Scott and I was extremely impressed. I have a high anxiety adult dog who is quite a handful, and Scott managed to calm my dog down. I am looking forward to our weekly sessions in overcoming my dog's (and mine) anxieties so that he can be a great canine citizen.
Jim was the best! In 5 weeks (really just after the first lesson!) I had the confidence and tools to maintain my dog’s training. It made the world of difference walking my dog, Barney, each day when he would walk by my side and sit on command versus pulling the leashing and leading me. Barney loves our walks together, and I do too! He sits, stays and comes on command! I can't thank Jim enough for his patience and positive energy. His passion for dogs is obvious and I would recommend him to any/all families in need of training! Katie G.
Helene at Pawsitively Pets was an excellent pet sitter. She took care of my 2 cats while I was traveling recently. Helene is a professional, She is licensed and bonded and very conscientious. When I met with Helene prior to my trip, she came to my home, asked very detailed questions and took notes. I felt very confident leaving my babies with her. Helene arrived each day and sent me a tet message with a photo of my cats. She played with them and gave them a cat massage. I returned home to find two very happy healthy felines! I highly recommend Helend and her company Pawsitively Pets.
Stephanie was incredible! Not only did she help us with our new puppy, but she also offered to come look at shelters with me for an emotional support dog. She helped me find potential dogs that would fit my needs, spent her day off looking at shelters with me, and giving my family recommendations and advice on acclimating the new dog into our home all on her own time. She had no problem answering our million questions any time we texted her. She absolutely went above and beyond for our family! I highly recommend her to anyone who’s looking for a great trainer who also just genuinely cares about her clients and their dogs!
Monica trained my two Shiba Inu that would never walk on a leed. Now I have two well behaved dogs. She knows how to make the dogs feel comfortable around other dogs and people .
Savannah comes to our house everyday of the week to let our dogs out to play. She has been an excellent pet sitter for our two dogs. She is reliable, trust worthy, and most of all great with our dogs. She leaves us a note everyday on how the visit went, she gives the dogs fresh water, treats, and lots of love. Scheduling has been easy and Savannah has been very flexible in helping us out when we worked late. She is a true professional when it comes to taking care of our dogs.
Sue is amazing to work with. My Toby loves her and do I. Having sue come to the house each day has made Toby a better dog. She works with him when I can't, gives him the exercise he needs while playing with him. Sue also helped me introduce a second dog to my home, She worked with me and the two boys to ease them into a relationship. She is always there and I know that Toby is getting as much love and care from her as he does from me. Thanks a million Sue!!!!
Steph as walked my dog for the past two years. My work schedule changes quickly and Steph is always willing to work with me. My dog literally smiles when Steph comes to the door.
We had Pawfect board our two puppies over the holidays and we opted to do a little extra training as well. The experience was incredible. We have boarded at other local facilities in the past. Our veterinarian recommended Pawfect to us this year and we reached out in hopes of not having our puppies stuck in kennels for several weeks. We received updates any time we asked; it was very nice, I must say. We received videos of the dogs playing with other dogs, training one on one, and plenty of pictures of the dogs having a good time. We received direct attention and that's something you simply don't get at other facilities or with other businesses. We are so happy our dogs were so happy and with us being gone for three weeks, we were worried about finding the right place. Pawfect is the solution for all future needs and we couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for your kind care and great support.
Nicole takes great care of my puppy 🐶 and lets me know immediately of any concerns she has.
Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!
