McClelland dog walking has been walking our pup for a couple months now, and has done a great job. They are punctual and easy to reach.
Belinda was absolutely amazing, she looked after out new dog pheobie while we were away over Christmas. I immediately felt comfortable leaving her in charge of our pet & home when we met & my confidence continued to grow. Belinda clearly loves dogs & pheobie obviously felt at ease with her very quickly as they were playing & gelling within minutes. Belinda sent daily updates with pictures to us which was sweet as we missed her & could see she was happy & ok. I would highly recommend Belinda & will definitely be using who let the dogs out again, in fact we already have her pencilled in for our next trip to Mexico. Thanks Belinda.
They were wonderful and understanding with my shy (and blind and hard of hearing) Cocker, and he was well taken care of while we were on vacation. He was so shy he was reluctant to go outside, which led to much more work than I ever expected! They texted regularly, and did a great job of letting me know how things were going. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for caring dog walkerss.
Dina does a great job walking our dog. She sends updates and spends a good amount of time watching our dog. Our dog is happy and so are we!!
Muttsley's is a dependable, trustworthy and kind service that has allowed me to not worry when I can't be there for my dog. My dog LOVES Muttsley's and I would recommend them to anybody who needs help taking care of his or her dog.
Susan is very communicative and takes great care of our Lily 2-3 days per week. She has experience as a vet tech for many years.She always leave a detailed note telling us how the walk went. We are happy to recommend Susan for dog walking!
Working with with Pawfect Dog Training was an amazing experience. We adopted a new puppy from the shelter and wanted to crate train her, so she would be comfortable in her crate when we were not home. Matthew did a great job training our dog to go into the crate on her own and feel comfortable in there. More importantly he helped teach us the right way to train her and taught us how to keep up with that training to get positive results. After only a few weeks of working with Pawfect and keeping up with our training at home, our puppy had no problem going in her crate on her own. Now she is so comfortable with her crate that she will go relax in there even when we are home! I definitely recommend anybody to work with Pawfect Dog Training to help train their dogs!
Savannah is wonderful with our two black labs; she takes them to the dog park on days we are not home until late. It is nice to know they are getting out, walked around the dog park, and not sitting in the house all day. The dogs love her.
I cannot speak highly enough about the fabulous service that Brenda Montemeyer has provided for our dog Sadie. She is trustworthy, reliable, loving, and fun! I would highly recommend her!
This is a very professional dog care service. Our two dogs were well-cared for while we were away, and we would recommend this company to anyone in need of dog walking/care.
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!
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!!!!
I'm hesitant to write this review because I want to keep Kathy to myself! She has been walking our dog for about a year and a half now and has done an excellent job. Highly recommend.
My dogs are complicated, but Shannon does a fantastic job. My dogs warmed up to her quick and I would recommend her to all.
This was my first time using a pet sitting service so I was naturally nervous about the whole process. I was basically giving a stranger unsupervised access to my home and dog. Fortunately, Sara was great about everything. A few days before my trip, she came to meet me and finalize Gizmo's care requirements. From the beginning, Sara was excellent about giving me status updates. I would receive a detailed email with a report on Gizmo (with pictures!) twice a day. It was extremely comforting to know that it was business as usual for Gizmo. She spent her days chasing squirrels, eating grass and trying to get someone to play fetch with her. Gizmo had the unfortunate luck of getting injured while playing. Sara quickly notified me that she thought Gizmo was favoring one leg to put weight on. We agreed that it was best for a vet to see Gizmo. Sara coordinated the appointment and made the vet visit in short order. Sara was fantastic about Gizmo's meds and after care. I couldn't have asked for a better caretaker. When I came back from my trip, I was happy to see that my dog was happy and that my house was in the same condition I left it in. I am definitely requesting her services again whenever I leave town. I recommend Sara's Compassionate Pet Care wholeheartedly!!
Sharlene took care of our dog while we went away for 4 days. She kept us up to date as to how Dopey was doing and never minded answering our questions. She is a sincere person that we trust with our doggie and will gladly use her help next time we travel
I'd tried just about everything to get my terrier to behave to no avail. But after just a couple of sessions with Monica I saw a huge improvement and now I have the most well behaved dog on my block. Highly recommended!
Christy is an excellent dog trainer and is very easy to talk to. I have not used other services from tail chasers but you can tell a lot about the integrity of an employer by that of their employees. I would feel confident hiring them to take care of my dog.
Nicole called me back in a timely matter. She was extremely professional. Her prices were average for this area. I’m from San Diego, where I thought the price would be higher but they are about twice the price here. Shocked me. She was the 5th dog walking service I spoke to, but the 1st I interviewed. My dog took to her immediately! He does not do this to everyone, as he is extremely protective! So, that was a very positive sign. She brought one of her walkers with as they will be helping to walk my dog and he loved her as well! He went on a walk with Nicole already and loved it. When they got back he got a snack and was happy as can be! She also met all 3 of my cats, so if I need her too she can also care for them. I’m very happy I was put in contact with Mutts in A Rutt!
Kris and Israel made it a simple process from start to finish. They certainly know what they're doing and made it an easy choice for me to hire them to walk my dog on a regular basis.
She was a tremendous help. She came in today, evaluated my dog and gave me lots of helpful hints. She is highly recommended.
