The person walking my dog is EXCELLENT!!! Would have given 5 stars, but the communication with Waggy Walkys is unpleasant because the receptionist (two different occasions) is snide and disrespectful. Client is told to communicate via e-mail, but the e-mail address for communication isn't on the client forms. Not a biggy, but client contact should be efficient and painless.

We are very happy with Loudoun Pet Care. Tyler came over for a consultation and he listened to what we were looking for in a dog walker and was very professional and nice. Our dog immediately loved him. Every day we get an update with a GPS imagine of where he took our dog walking and the amount of time he walked her. Tyler is very responsive if you need him. Overall we are extremely satisfied with his service and are very thankful to him. I highly recommend Loudoun Pet Care.

Jay of Canine Dominion is more than just the best dog trainer ever. Once you hire him, it's as if he's become a member of your family -- a really smart, experienced, savvy member of your family who's truly invested in the successful training of your dog. He stands behind his dog training 100% too -- willing to provide additional sessions if needed at no additional charge. Jay brings amazing skills plus integrity to boot. Now if only I could find an auto mechanic version of Jay. ;-)

This is my first time ever using Thumbtack and I was a little bit skeptical, but I went ahead and booked Stef's cat sitting service as her reviews seem to be very good. At first, I booked basic cat visiting service. However, just the day before the trip, my cat got an abscess burst. I had to take her to the vet and requested some extra services from Stef, but she was very accommodating. My cat seems very happy when I'm back home, food, water and litter pan well taken care of. Stef sent me messages everyday to update me on my cat's condition. Plus points in Stef's services: responsiveness and quality. She did everything to make sure my requests are fulfilled. I can't thank her enough for putting my mind at ease while being away and my cat was sick. Overall five star service!

Cyndie was a professional with her first appointment screening process. Lots of questions for me that even I hadn't thought of. We hadn't had a dog in a couple years, so her thoughts and comments were very much appreciated. Nancy did a great job keeping us posted from afar while we were away with great pictures of our dog Stella. Prices are very reasonable.

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!!

I purchased the six week training package with Vicky. On the initial meet and greet I could already see that she had a good rapport with my dog. After the initial meeting we set up a regular date/time and Vicky was always vigilant on sending a reminder text the day before to confirm our appointment and she always arrive on time every time. Vicky does an excellent job in guiding you to train your animal, she provides both positive feedback on the things that you and your animal are doing right and what needs to be corrected. She was able to successfully correct the main issue that I had with my dog which was pulling on the leash.

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.

I couldn't be happier with the training that we've received from Social Tailwaggers. Jodie, our trainer. is so patient and very knowledgeable. The first time we met, we discussed what training I was interested in and what goals we were trying to achieve for my dog, Cooper. Cooper was around 10-11 months old when we began our first training session. She immediately began to introduce new skills and commands to work on training Cooper. After each lesson, Jodie sends a detailed email outlining all of the skills we worked on and suggestions to help with practicing on my own. Jodie was also helpful with recommendations on types of toys and feeding bowls to help with the energy level of my dog. I would highly recommend Social Tailwaggers to anyone who needs help training a new puppy or an older dog. It is well worth the time, money and effort to have a well trained dog and not only are you going to have a well trained, better behaved dog, it's also a lot of fun time spent with your dog.

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.

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!

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.

I am so grateful to Julie of PuppyLovin for her work with my dogs and can not recommend her and her services highly enough! Julie loves and cares for my dogs like they’re her own, and they adore and respect her back. She has been taking care of them for 2.5 years now, providing them daily walks during the workweek that feature exercise, adventure, and training, and boarding them often at her place when I travel. Of the numerous area dog care providers I’ve used over the past 7 years, Julie is hands-down the best and I’ve not considered using anyone else since I met her. What she has provided that the others have not is knowledgeable, consistent training, in particular for my anxious rescue mutt. The change in him through Julie’s loving but disciplined care and expertise has been remarkable -- he’s become much more relaxed overall, and now welcomes comfort and takes my lead when he’s anxious rather than acting out. He’s truly a changed dog, which brings me such relief! Both of my dogs have also become much better walkers and much better behaved when in proximity to other dogs, all thanks to Julie, who has involved her own dogs in the training of mine, to great effect. Julie is very generous with her time -- she updates me on her progress and explains what I can do to ensure I get the same great results she does. I’m confident you won’t find a more caring, committed, and professional trainer to work with you and your dog(s)!

Andre from Furry Walks and Wash pet sat for our two cats while we were away on vacation for a week. Andre was very professional, and I felt safe leaving the cat in his hands. After every visit Andre sent a detailed email update on how the cats were doing including pictures and was very responsive to our requests. I would absolutely recommend Furry Walks and Wash.

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.

Caroline is always there when I (my dogs and cats) need her, taking excellent care of them, reporting any problems to me as soon as she notices something, and taking care of my home, too! My dogs love her and absolutely go nuts for their "walkies"!

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!

Our 15 year old dog has literally grown up with WIP. From exuberant puppy to stately middle age to (now) a senior with vision and hearing problems, Sparky has always been provided with the perfect walker by A Walk in the Park. I attribute a lot of his excellent socialization to this. And from my point of view, I appreciate WIP's ability to cope with complex and sometime shifting scheduling, and changes in the dog's diet and capabilities. I recommend A Walk in The Park whole-heartedly.

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!

Rebecca was professional but enjoyable to work with at the same time She worked to establish a positive relationship and experience for my elderly special needs dog She also worked with me to help me feel comfortable and less stressed She was excellent at listening to me and what I wanted while explaining her work and strategies at the same time She was an obvious dog lover and a “people person “ with a great personality while being professional and also a perfectionist about her work and how great she wanted my dog to look when he was finished,never rushing and never making me feel as if she was watching the clock She spent a lot of time at my home, gave my dog breaks when she felt he needed one and cleaned up as she worked She went above and beyond and I will use only her for any future needs
