I took my cocker spaniel to get a haircut and she did a great job at cutter her hair. My dog seem comfortable around her and she even gave me tips on how to clean her ears properly. I would definetly recommend her. She was nice enough to let me stay during the process. I am very happy and most importently so is my dog!

Jay Lewis, owner of Canine Dominion, is a master at working with dogs. Our dog responded to him instantly with trust, respect, & affection. He works closely with the family/owners, which is very productive for all. Your dog (and you) learn so much, so quickly. Canine Dominion also offers boarding, which we can vouch for as excellent. CD is the best!

Vicky was great! She not only took great care with all of our animals, she handled my anxiety well! We received photos and notes every day with updates of the animals and how they were doing. I told her not to worry about one of my super shy cats because if she tried to find her, it would stress her out more than just being left alone...well, the first day I get a picture of that cat just chillin with Vicky! When we came home we were greeted with an, "Oh...it's you. You're back" bored look from the animals...that was GREAT! I knew she kept them so happy they were not pining away for us or stressed out. I had used another pet sitter for seven years due to convenience, but the animals seemed stressed when we returned. With Vicky, everything was great.

I am a life long dog owner. I have tried different businesses for grooming but I was looking for something different and something better for our current dog. Luca is our great Pyrenees - mix, rescue. He is an amazing dog but with his "guard dog" nature, he reacts when faced with dogs he is not familiar with. This trait meant we could not send him to the grooming options offered in the local pet stores. I found "Happy Paws" through "Thumb Tack" during a google search. I did not have to wait before I heard from Happy Paws. From the first contact, through my entire experience, I was communicating with the owner and then the groomer. Happy Paws has impressed me, as their years caring for animals has grown and developed into an amazing well executed business. They do not leave any stone un-turned. They have thought of everything. Every improvement and upgrade they have made, over the years, stems from the their interaction with their clients and the animals. Our first visit included a visit from the owner, Angela, and the groomer, Reena, who have worked together for years. Angela took the time to make sure I was comfortable with our first experience. I truly enjoyed her visit. She is very easy to talk with and so good at listening to all my question and/or concerns. As for the grooming experience, it deserves 5 stars as well. Luca is 76 lbs so I was so curious how the groomer would be able to bath and trim such a large dog - one who doesn't like water/baths. However, nothing fazed Reena. She handled Luca with confidence and as a result Luca had less anxiety because he knew he was being cared for and that Reena could and did handle him with great care. There is so much more I can share about our positive experience. But I will end with the fact that Luca looks beautiful and we cannot get enough of his soft fur and gorgeous looks! I am so grateful to Happy Paws and I HIGHLY recommend Happy Paws to every dog owner!!

Gerard has taken care of our two cats twice while we were out of town, stopping by our house twice a day to feed them and clean the litter boxes. He always goes the extra mile to spend quality time with each of them. Gerard is a "cat person" and understands that cats are not just feed-and-leave animals as most pet-sitting services seem to think. They need company and stimulation, which Gerard happily provides. Even our shy cat was charmed by him and wound up in his lap in no time. Gerard also sends frequent reports and photographs to let us know that all is well. And he pays attention to detail: he brings in the mail, cleans cat dishes after use, and always leaves the house looking better than he found it. We have found him trustworthy and reliable and recommend him without hesitation or reservation.

Fabiola was very quick to respond to my request and within one day she was at my apartment meeting my two kitties. She is clearly an animal lover and my cats instantly warmed up to her! Two days later she was coming over daily to feed them while I was on vacation. She was so flexible (a few days my boyfriend was supposed to feed the cats but had an unexpected emergency and Fabiola responded right away and went over to take care of my cats). She followed up with me throughout the week and sent some photos and even went to get more cat food when I was running low. She cleaned their litter every day and it was so nice to come home to a fresh smelling apartment! I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan on using her in the future! Thanks Fabiola for making me feel comfortable leaving my fur babies with you!

We used Petstigious Pets for cat-sitting, and plan to continue to do so well into the future. Shatiya is a clearly an animal lover as well as professional, organized, reliable, and communicative. She arranged a pre-meeting to get to know us, our cat, our house, and our routine. While we were on vacation, she cleaned the litter, put out food and water, played with her, and picked up our mail and packages. After each visit she sent full reports and pictures. She is by far the best cat sitter we've had yet.

I have two dogs and one cat; all are older animals and one dog is blind. Leaving my pets in the care of others is the hardest decision I have had to make. No one cares for my pets better than me, except for Cupid Pets! Kim and Bruce are down-to-earth animal lovers who have bent over backwards for me and to make sure my pets are happy and safe! They come to your house to evaluate your pets, they listen carefully to your instruction and with their knowledge, can offer some suggestions if issues arise. They have the time (never rushed walks), they have the training (how to greet fearful dogs) and they have the love of animals (belly rubs for the dogs and pettings for the cat) that make them wonderful pet caregivers. They also try to be flexible in their scheduling and are reasonable in their pricing.

I was very impressed with the care and grooming my dogs RUPERT and WALLY received. The dog groomer was very professional and showed her love towards animals. She made my dogs feel comfortable and safe. Much better then having them groomed at the Vets. By coming to my home it help Rupert with his anxiety level. I didn't have to drive him to the Vet and leave him there most of the day

I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah has groomed my dog and cut my cats' nails for about the past 21/2 years. She has done an outstanding job. Prior to using Sarah, my dog was very agitated when I brought her to be groomed and was extremely upset when I would pick her up. Additionally, I was never very happy with how the dog looked. In contrast, my dog is always thrilled to see Sarah and is calm and happy when I pick her up. She also looks fabulous. Since Sarah has been grooming my dog, people have stopped me on the street to comment on how beautiful my dog is! Sarah is equally professional and gentle with my cats. It is very obvious that Sarah is a very talented groomer. Most importantly however, is that she clearly is an animal lover and advocate. She genuinely enjoys her time with each pet and "sees" them. She does not rush her work. I enthusiastically recommended Sarah.

I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.

The folks at Pet Peeps were incredible. Gus was on time, well organized, and very good with our cats. He really went above and beyond when we didn't have a spare set of keys and he offered to make a copy for us. All in all, clear animal lovers and also a very well run business. We are so appreciative for their help!

Sarah did and exceptional job. Both my dogs were matted badly due to me putting them in a dog hotel for a month. She did a pretty decent job shaving them. No burns or cuts. Only areas for improvement I have: ear hair was largely untouched even though I asked to clean their ears.( I have no clue how groomers clean a dog's ears but my previous groomer removed them so I apologize in advance if you did clean their ears Sarah) And there's some armpit hair left. These, by no means, are complains because me and her both knew how bad their condition was I was so concerned after reading some of the reviews of other groomers, I'm glad I found her after what I got to experience. Hopefully, next grooming sessions will be easier on her since my dogs will be growing a fresh coat of hair. Thumbs up from Dunkin and Donut!

Karen did such a great job with my yorkie poo, Zoe, who had a lot of hair and some mats. You can tell that she truly cares for animals and loves what she does. Zoe seemed to take to Karen immediately and I was comfortable knowing that she would take good care of her. She is friendly and professional, and I will definitely use her again.

Lea watched my 3 kitties while I was out of town for the holidays. We did daily check ins and feeding with some play time. She sent texts giving me updated on how they were doing. My furry family was super happy to have full bellies and some company. I would hire her again.

I cannot recommend Stephanie highly enough. We hired Stephanie to look after our 1 year old cat for a two week period and a one week period over the past couple months and both times Stephanie did an excellent job. She checked in on our cat every day, spent time with him and sent us updates. Most recently, we ran out of wet food for our cat and she ended up bringing that exact same brand with her, which was very generous. She watered plants, and looked after our home very very well. In addition, she's a very friendly person and genuinely cares about the animals she's caring for. If you need a pet sitter, look no further! We surely haven't. : )

Although I have known Tracye since she was eight years old and was familiar with her business, I have never had a cat and never used her pet sitting service. We have always owned Yorkshire terriers under five pounds. After meeting my Yorkie, Tracye agreed to care for zak in our home for eight days, stopping by once per day to take him outside and spend some time with him. She did a great job. She even put the mail in a box daily for us so as not to look out of town. Since my dog is half the size of her cat, I hope Tracye will agree to house dog sit for us again. One more thing, we asked her to stop by between 5 and 6 pm daily. I can not speak for all eight days, but on two days we observed Tracye by remote cameras from the beach in Martinique and Barbados. Doing her thing and right on time. I also think my dog minds Tracye better than me. She's the best. She should definitely expand to toy breed dogs. Thank you!!

I can't speak highly enough about Laura and Animal Paradise Pet Care and Sitting. My husband and I needed help working with and training our rescue pup, and from our initial contact with Laura, we were certain we made the right choice. After discussing our needs over the phone, we met in person to allow Laura to make her assessment and create a plan. Throughout our time working together, Laura was always quick to respond, flexible with scheduling training sessions, and displayed the utmost in professionalism. Laura effectively customized (and modified as needed) our pup's training needs, ensuring that everything requiring attention was properly addressed. Again, I can't say enough great things about Animal Paradise Pet Care and Sitting, and HIGHLY recommend you consider working with Laura before going elsewhere. (And this bit of advice is coming from someone who exhaustively researched dog trainers before choosing to work with Animal Paradise.)

I've known about Journey for about 4 years now, and my experience with Journey has always been excellent. Laron (the founder of Journey) is a very determined, kind hearted young gentlemen who knows how to treat animals right, and I'm glad to have met someone who is as passionate as he. From grooming to feeding, I found Journey to be well tailored to the needs of my animals and the customizable time slots make vacations away from my pets a breeze. I was very glad I found Journey, and I would most certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a easy way to manage their pets, either due to vacation or a hectic lifestyle, or even if you're looking to give your pets a little treat! Journey (from my experience) has been completely reliable, an excellent service which I've come to rely on.

Susan is the dog walker, trainer, running companion, and home away from home for our three year old Carolina dog Sandy. The American Kennel Club says Carolina dogs are the most hierarchical breed which means until you establish yourself as their alpha, they can be willful, exhibit dominance (i.e., they want to be at your face level so they jump up), and have almost boundless energy. We were told that Sandy would be as energetic at 13 years as she was at 13 months. We said, What have we gotten ourselves into? But Susan has turned Sandy into a perfect lady. First she taught her to sit in the care\ and not bother the driver. Sandy now loves her rides. Susan took Sandy on long runs. Sandy came home so tuckered out she only wanted to lie on her pillow and sleep. When Susan arrives for Sandy’s run, Sandy gets so excited she wants to jump up and kiss Susan’s face (remember dominance). Susan uses that as a teaching moment so that Sandy minds her manners and has to wait and sit before she gets to go on her run. Susan has four dogs of her own and when she boards Sandy for the weekend the dogs have a wonderful time together. Susan's dogs teach Sandy their good manners. In short, Susan has taken one of the most difficult breeds to train and turned her into almost the perfect pet, because once Sandy learned her manners all she wants to do is kiss and hug you. We love Sandy and she is a full member of our family and we cannot thank Susan enough for helping us train her. In short if you are looking for help with your dog from simple regular exercise, to boarding, to basic and then complex training, we cannot recommend anyone more highly than Susan Rubin for that service.
