I have so happy with Lisa and Consumate Canine. I now feel like my puppy Marty is getting the care he needs while I am away at work.
Jackie took great care of my dogs. 2 senior and 2 young. They are normally shy of strangers but they took right to her. Would definitely recommend and use her again
I would highly recommend Tail Waggin Pet Services. We found ourselves in need of someone to watch our dog after my father-in-law passed away. Kristen is very professional and did a great job for us. She doesn't just come in a few times a day to care for their basic needs, she also spends time with them playing, walking, and giving them a lot of TLC. She was also great about opening/shutting blinds, turning on/off lights, etc. You can tell Kristen is a "pet lover" and I believe animals can sense that in people! Our dog was receptive to her right away and we were completely comfortable knowing she would be well taken care of. It was a great option for us to leave our dog at home where she is comfortable instead of having to board her in a kennel.
Shauna was just what we needed for our dog Cooper!
I have known Sandy for several years now and she is one of the few people that I trust to take care of my dog, Kyle. When I first started working with Sandy she would walk Kyle daily while I was at work. Over time my schedule changed and while I didn't need him to be walked as regularly, I would need her to keep Kyle overnight for days and even weeks at a time when I was out of town. To this day I can't recall one time she was unable to watch Kyle for me when I asked, even if it was last minute or over the holidays. Kyle is known to be a bit feisty and not always the most well behaved and Sandy is always willing to work with him and treat him like one of her own. Every time she watches Kyle, she sends me photos of him and gives me regular updates. She is always willing to pick him up or drop him off if I am not able. She also is available to take him on walks one day here or there or for a full week, whatever I might need. I really can't thank her enough for always being there when we need her, even if it's last minute, she welcomes Kyle with open arms. I would highly recommend Sandy for any of your pets needs. It is clear Kyle really likes her as well because even after months of not seeing Sandy, when he does he recognizes her straight away and is excited to see her. That makes me happy.
I have utilized From My House To Yours pet sitting service for more than six years now. Karen and her team have taken excellent care of my dogs and my home. They have provided pet visits during the week while my husband and I are at work and also when we are on vacation. Karen and her team are loved by my dogs. My dogs look forward to seeing their pet sitter and I am confident of the care that is provided to my dogs when I am away from home. I highly recommend the service they provide and I am confident of the love that they show to the pets in their care.
Motif has been my groomer for the past 5 years. They always do a wonderful job on my Collies and you can't beat their prices. My dogs love going there and playing with the doggie daycare pups while they wait for their turn. I have never been disappointed in the service they provide and they are fantastic with senior dogs and make sure they accommodate their needs. All the staff is knowledgeable and has even helped out with dietary suggestions and dogs with skin allergies. You won't be disappointed with Motif grooming!
When I left home today I told my 2 kitty girls their "better" mother would be visiting them...Kathleen's social visits help all of us cope with stresses of life and being away from home long hours. In the past elderly family members needed our attention and our own family was shorted. The girls now have a consistent life and friendship with Alone at Home whether we are working, take a short road trip or a longer vacation. We just go - the house is minded/secure, mail brought in, fresh water/food appears in their bowls, toys are scattered everywhere - we come home to happy kitties who can talk to us about their day. We are parents with peace of mind and satisfied pets.
Marina has started with us two weeks ago and she has been fantastic with our new puppy. We get updates after each visit along with pictures of our dog to remind us of how happy she is that Marina is there to take care of her when we can't be. Would highly recommend her services to everyone.
Michelle has been wonderful with my puppy. She was so patient with him on their first meeting. She's so fast to respond to my messages. And I love the texts I get from her to let me know how Oliver did on his walk.
She did a great job, took really good care of my dog. I will be user her from now on.
Working with Todd has been great. He's totally professional and has taken great care of our dog. He's very organized and is extremely prompt in returning messages. We are extremely happy with the level of service he provides.
For the first meet and greet I found the staff open and concerned about my concerns.they talked but more importantly they listened. My Roxy is my family she a small little ball of fire. That can be a handful. But Angelica, made me feel at ease, she cares about the pets she really is a kind person. I would recommend her to anyone that needed a doggie daycare. Denise
Wild Paws is a wonderful service, providing training, boarding, and daycare and Joanne (Jo) is clearly a special trainer. Jo has been our sheltie-cockapoo-pumi mix trainer for several months and the two of them hit it off from the very beginning. Indeed, I have witnessed this for every dog I have seen interact with her. The emphasis of the training program is always on the well-being of the dog: protecting the dog from running away or eating something dangerous; keeping the dog mentally stimulated, and fostering a healthy relationship between the owners and the dog, especially for families with young children. The daycare is heavily supervised and highly secured. If you are not known, you are not getting in, and you are definitely not removing a dog. However, if you are known, you are welcomed with open arms. The facility is always clean and new dogs are added carefully to the existing mix to ensure that play is always satisfying (and exhausting!) for the dogs. Pictures of the dogs are shared every day. Dietary restrictions are enforced strictly. Treats are plentiful and varied. Puppies tend to leave learning new tricks. I have also used the boarding service. Pictures of the dogs playing are also shared every day. Boarded dogs spend significant portions of the day outside of their cage, unless they are stressed. The service emphasizes the well-being and happiness of the dog as well. There is a human being with the dogs 24/7. If you have a sensitivity to smoke scent, you will want to wash your dog afterward, but this is at most a minor inconvenience. Knowing that the dogs are safe, stimulated, and learning is what matters.
Lizzy has taken care of my Cairn Terrier Charlie. She did a great job. With her past experience in pet care, I felt that I could really trust my little guy in her hands. He was happy when I picked him up and exhausted that night (which means she gave him plenty of exercise!!) I endorse Lizzy's pet services to the fullest! She is sweet, kind and trustworthy. Thank you Liz!
Eight years ago, had it not been for Paw Law and Jan's training methods, I would have NEVER continued in Obedience or Agility... Thanks to the positive training methods used by Jan & Paw Law, my dog went on to achieve many titles and ribbons... however, even more meaningful than all of that, we established a beautiful bond and she became my best friend. She is gone now, but the experience I received at Paw Law to use positive training methods now continues to live on thru my 2 new baby dogs. Thank you Jan, and Paw Law, for all of your help through the years.

We stand out for a number of reasons. (1) We do an extremely thorough assessment of every dog. We ask people to have their dog here at 7am on the day of the assessment and they are here for a day of day care and being assessed on that day, so they are here until at least 2:30pm. During that time, we look at how does the dog do with new people, how does the dog do with strange objects, how does the dog do with general handling, how does the dog do with toys and treats with people and with other dogs. Once that portion is done, we introduce the new dog slowly to other dogs. We first do an introduction through fencing - allowing them to sniff one another safely. Then we introduce on leash and lastly off leash, but only if the introductions through the fence and on-leash have gone well. We assess how each dog does with a variety of transitions, such as going through doorways, different gates, being kenneled or crated and going from our outside to inside.
