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.
Lainey is excellent. She walks our dog a few days a week while we are at work. We are so appreciative of Lainey for taking such good care of our 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!
I am really glad I chose muttsleys pet service to walk my dog. Jackie,the owner, comes three times a week to walk my dog and my dog absolutely loves her! She is very punctual and responds immediately to my texts. The service is terrific!
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.
Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!
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.
John has provided the BEST dog walking service we have received in the past three years of owning our new puppy! We have had a number of dog walkers in the past for various reasons and John is by far the best! He is professional, dependable, caring to our dog, sends us photos after each walk, and overall is a pleasure to work with! The most important factor for us is reliability given we work during the day and John is always there to walk our retriever! He does not walk our dog with other dogs and devotes his time and energy to making our puppy happy while we are at work. John also goes above and beyond as he gives our dog a peanut butter Kong before he leaves so our dog doesn't bark while we are away. Please work with Top Dog Chicago as your dog will love the service!!!
Rare individual that is everything you ever want in a dog walker! She is a genuine friendly person, and is a gifted dog whisper. My Woody loves her and smiles the entire time he's out for a walk! She dependable, accommodating and affordable! Simply the absolute best!
Wonderful and person service that is not just focused on dog walking but personal relationships!
We like that she came to our house. We had been working with our rescue dog but got stuck with how to socialize him. She gave us the tools and training we needed so we can start the continued journey of properly socializing the dog. We needed to know how to properly put him in the beta role so he would trust us to lead the situation.
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!!
I am so pleased to write a review of my dog walker,Todd Friedman. Todd is dependable, knowledgeable, and conscientious. He has been walking my rescued dog for the past three months. She can be an excitable girl and sometimes a challenge. But Todd knows how to handle her with love and understanding. If a problem arises, he lets me know right away and handles things in a professional manner. Gracie looks forward to his visits. And I am grateful to have found him!
Denise and crew have been walking my dogs for over fifteen years now. I would never want to have anyone else. Whenever I have had something unforeseen come up, Four Paws has ALWAYS stepped up and helped me. They care about my dogs as if they were their own. Years ago when I first realized I needed dog walking services, I had an unfortunate experience with another company (they simply 'forgot to come'!) so it took some time for me to trust that Four Paws would not 'forget' us. I feel fortunate to have found them, and I am not kidding when I say I don't know what I would do without them.
We hired Nancy and Len to walk our 2 french bulldogs 3 days per week. We had them come over to meet the boys and everyone got along so we decided to hire them. Len takes the boys for nice long walks then make sure they get water and treats before they go back into their crate. One weekend we had a family emergency and had to leave the boys at home for a long part of the day., We called Nancy and Len and they were able to come by and walk them with just a half days notice. Then the next week Nancy called to make sure everything was all right concerning the family emergency. You don't find that with all dog walkers! The only reason I do not give them 5 stars is that they do not have smart phones and I do not get text messages about how the walk and visit went or the occasional photo that we were used to getting with our previous dog walker. We almost did not hire them due to this but Len does leave nice detailed notes plus knowing that they care about us and our boys make up for the lack a smart phone.
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.
Jenn is a natural animal lover and it shows in the way she cares for her furry clients. On time, dependable, and always with a smile on her face! Love her and so does my dog!
We couldn't be happier with the dog walking services we received from Chicago PetPal! They did a great job with our dogs - especially our 4 month old puppy. They helped work on her housetraining and did a great job getting her into and out of her crate. In our initial meeting, it was instantly clear that Dean and Nicole love dogs. They were very thorough when getting information about the pups and spent the whole time playing with, petting, and spoiling the dogs (all while letting the dogs get used to them). Dean (our walker) was always prompt, friendly, and easy to work with, including being flexible and understanding when our plans had to change. While all of these above aspects are incredible, the part of Chicago PetPal that we love the most is how easy it is to communicate with them. We got daily "report cards" for both of our dogs (including pictures) with lots of information. They were also fast to answer to texts and helpful and friendly in their responses. We felt very reassured knowing that our dogs were being so well cared for! We very highly recommend Chicago PetPal for dog walking, and we will definitely be using them again for our future dog walking (and other pet services)!
Always been there for us great dog walker
