We really love the in home setting used for training. Everything is done in a trainers home and the dogs are supervised 24hours a day. The trainers, and employees of Your Best Friends Dog House are great. They are very attentive to the human clients needs as well as the dogs and other animals. We were introduced to YBFDH about 3 years ago, we had an 8 year old Irish wolf hound and he was starting to act iffy. He would growl at the kids and was beginning to become aggressive to strangers. Our neighbor had used YBFDH for dog walking, and pet sitting so they mentioned to me they also offer dog training. We sent our old boy to learn some new things, and he came back without any of the negative behaviors he had previously shown. We now have a 1 year old Great Dane and he did his puppy and basic training at YBFDH. They do a great job!

We have a daily dog walk, as well as they cover our house sitting and pet sitting over the holidays and sometimes in the summer if we travel. It's a great service, they truly love the animals and we love having them in our home. We know that things will be taken care of at our place while we are away! Use YBFDH for all your pet care needs!

I cannot say enough great things about Dina. Dina is my first pet sitter and from the start she made me feel very comfortable. Dina makes sure to send text messages and pictures to let me know how my pets are doing. My dogs are not the easiest, and Dina has such compassion that within a day my dogs consider her part of the family (and so do we). I HIGHLY recommend Dina!!!!

Donna D.

Dina took great care of our dog when we were out of town. She provided overnight care for our Ellie and visits during the day. We had piece of mind knowing that Dina was with our dog. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, responsible pet sitter who loves dogs.

I've known Kathy for a while now, and will only use her to take care of my dog while I'm away. She is always willing to come to my house and take care of my dog, allowing me the benefit of keeping my dog in her comfortable, safe environment she is use to. Kathy's compassion for animals, and strong instincts for what their needs are, is refreshing. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Kathy was great and what she offered was piece of mind. This was my first experience with a pet sitter and I thought it went well. She sent me a short text after each visit and when I got home i found a daily log of activity. My puppy was well taken care of while I was away. I have already made arrangements to use her services again.

Martin is fantastic. He cared about our rescue beagle from the beginning, and made amazing progress on his first visit.

In addition to taking excellent care of our dogs, Pause for Pets was also willing to take care of our turtles, toads and snakes during an extended vacation, without any hesitation. We appreciated the check-ins to make sure the animals were fed and terrariums were properly cared for and the text messages to reassure us that our pets were well cared for. Highly recommended.

Susan has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.

Stop loooking around. If you want someone that takes even better care of your pet than yourself, you have found it. 😃 Tracy has been watching our cat Mylo for the last 3 days and I'm beyond impressed with her services. Not only did she respond in no time to our last minute request but she also truly cares. It is hard nowadays to find a business that is so focused and caring about the customer. Our cat was sick and we were stressed out about leaving town and Tracy made us feel so comfortable with leaving him with her. She sent me updates via text message, every time she feed him and gave him his medicine. She is super educated about animals and she is probably one of the main reasons Mylo recovered so fast. She even got him a drinking fountain because she recommend that being easier for him to drink. She really cared about our baby Mylo. If you are looking for someone who will not just feed your animal but you know is loving your pet as much as you, don't hesitate to hire Tracy. She is absolutely amazing! Thank you for everything Tracy! 💚

The owner, Tracy, is fantastic! This was our 1st experience with leaving our dog and birds at home with a pet sitter! She was always in contact with us, sending updates and photos to ease our minds that things were well at home! And, when we got home, we had a day to day written updates waiting for us! She was, also, flexible with her schedule with us since we weren't sure when we would be returning home! Her prices were amazing! We expected to pay more that what she charged us! The photos attached were sent to us from Tracy!! Falcore Pet Sitting has us as permanent clients!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of our fur & feathered babies!!

We rescued a Siberian husky puppy for a new addition to our family and for our kids to have a companion to play with. We were beside ourselves with just how much energy Kane had. We knew he could be an energetic breed but he was always running around and loved being outside all of the time; we live in an apartment complex. We were referred to Pawfect Training and felt very confident based on the reviews on the website and on Thumbtack. After our first appointment, we couldn't believe the amount of information being provided to us about the Siberian husky breed, about how Kane was relating to our family, about why his energy was always so high, and so, so much more. Matthew got our entire family involved in the training, including our 5-year-old. The basic obedience went incredibly well and the connection our whole family now shares with Kane is amazing. We all walk more now and Kane is calmer inside and even around other dogs he hasn't met. The whole experience with Pawfect Dog Training was one to remember and we are thankful for having found the right trainer for our incredible new family member!

I have completed a full course of agility training with Pawfect Dog Training and the experience was incredible. My dog, Max, and I run together and travel a lot. Being able to tire him out was a challenge initially. The Pawfect trainers had me awestruck in the first session! We planned for 2 hours and Max was exhausted after just 22 minutes of games to work his mind. He's a border collie mix. After seeing that, I knew I had hired the right trainer! We learned the agility ladder, the tunnel, the agility sticks, the hoops, and so much more. Max is always so focused on me now and tuned into what we're doing. We were close before, but now, the bond we share thanks to Pawfect's Pawsitive training methods and teaching us so much about how Max sees the world will be forever strong! Thank you Pawfect!

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!

Sara watched my high-energy, high-strung Jack Russell rescue dog (Daisy Duke) twice this summer for two week-long vacations. She was recommended to me by a friend who has known Sara since middle school. I don't put my trust in many people, but Sara proved to be very deserving of it. Daisy was in great hands. Sara came and met with Daisy before the first in-house pet-sitting started. During the visit Sara played fetch with Daisy outside and the two got to know one another. During the pet-sitting week, Sara stayed overnight with Daisy and spent a lot of time playing with her. Daisy pees a lot, because she's a nervous dog, with some issues from her previous lilfe before we adopted her. Sara was patient and understanding. She also made sure Daisy was walked and exercised thoroughly. I HIGHLY recommend Sara. She's affordable, trust-worthy, and compassionate. I am a little doting, when it comes to my children (furry or human) and I appreciated the status texts from Sara letting me know how it went. After the visit I received a summary of how things went, whether Daisy ate well, and how much exercise and TLC she received. I loved this service. Sara also watered by small garden and I tipped her for that, since she did such a stellar job. What completely bowled me over was that Sara washed the bedding so that I didn't have to attend to the guest room, when I arrived home exhausted from our travels. Totally unexpected, but a really nice touch.

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!!
