This is an absolutely fantastic company. I was super nervous about leaving my puppy to be walked by a stranger but I have been so incredibly pleased with Waggy walkys. I've had two different walkers and both have been so trustworthy, kind, and reliable. I don't ever worry about my baby I know she's well taken care of and loved when I'm not home. On top of that their customer service is great. So so glad that I decided to do this!!! They are awesome here!

Canine Dominion is a great company to work with. The owner came to my home and picked up both of my dogs and dropped them off once boarding was completed, which was a awesome feature. During there stay with Canine Dominion, my dogs were trained on basic commands and were well taken care of. The owner even sent pictures of my dogs to keep me updated during there boarding, which made me feel even more comfortable. It was truly a pleasure working with the owner Jauvaurie and I will definitely board my dogs with him again.

We had a great experience with Miller Pet Grooming. Great service our two Malteses looked beautiful. Hattie got to our house early which I thought was great. She was very caring and patient with Britney that is 16 years old and blind and with Liza that is 14. Hattie is very professional and knowledgeable I will definitely hire her again.

I adopted a Staffie (American Pit Bull) when he was 4 months old - he grew into a 55 pounder more quickly than I was prepared for. By the time he was 12 months old I was afraid to walk him, he was so reactive and strong; it was a chaotic mess. Haywood was recommended to me by the person who works in a nearby pet supply store, he knew customers who got trained there, and he saw the dog class walking by his store and the results over a period of time. When I arrived at Academy Dog Training for my first appointment (meet and greet and evaluation) - I had to ask Haywood to come out to my car to get my dog. I really mean I could not walk him, even a short distance. We agreed on working together to train me and tame Blue. After the first training session, I learned how to control him and was able to start taking him on short walks. What I gained was my confidence, what Blue gained was his self control. I have learned that "training" is a perpetual thing; just like raising a child. Haywood showed me how to be the leader - how to be consistent - how to administer correction - how and when to reward. The training started one-on-one; conducted indoors. Then we moved out doors, then we moved to a small group,and out in the real world of streets, shopping centers, all of us, large and small dogs, all different breeds together. It was amazing how quickly we progressed. What is unique is the real life training environment, not just in a store in an enclosed environment. It's been 4 months now and I can walk my dog anywhere, safely and sanely. And, I walk my 2 dogs together - the pit and a jack. I would recommend Haywood for anyone who has a dog and wants to have an enjoyable, happy pet. Sincerely, Gina

I recently had my dog participate in the basic obedience class. Bijou is a rhodesian ridgeback and I adopted her 3 months ago and she was 1 year old. I quickly learned that Bijou was extremely smart but very stubborn. She would only listen to my commands if I had a treat and would basically pull my arm off on walks. Bijou was also house trained but because of her stubbornness she would have "accidents" in the house every single day not matter how often we took her out to go to the bathroom. In addition, Bijou got attacked by 3 dogs at a dog park and it changed her personality from playful to scared and she would get nasty every time she saw another dog out of her fear of being attacked. After day 1 of training Bijou was completely different. She was listening to all of my commands and it was obvious her confidence was coming back. After the 2nd training session Bijou stopped having "accidents" in the house and started going to the bathroom on command outside when I asked her to. Using the instructors approach to training we've been able to teach Bijou endless tricks and quickly. It's been a pleasure being able to take her on runs in the city off leash (and she'll stay right next to me even with other dogs around) and eat at resturants outside and not have her freak out. The best part is she plays so nicely with dogs again, and we were able to take her back to "A Dogs Day Out" because she plays so well again and it's due to having her confidence back. My sister stayed with me the past weekend and brought her dog Huck, a golden doodle, and everything was so peaceful in the house and they played so nicely outside together. One of the biggest compliments is when we are eating outside in the city and people stop in Aw of Bijou’s obedience and we get asked by complete strangers where she was trained and wish their dog was as well behaved. I think Nick's training is so effective because he discovered a way to communicate to dogs that fills that gap and better connects dogs with their owners. My sister was so impressed by Bijous improvement in obedience when she visited with her dog that she is now driving all the way from North Carolina to get Nicks training. My sister has completed 3 other dog training courses with little results. The best part is Nick guarantees results, and it's because he has a 100% success rate. Because Bijou is so obedient I’m excited to take her to more places and on more adventures like camping in the Boundary Waters, I know she’ll stay where I tell her to in the canoe and will stay close to me on the trails. It’s so great being able to take my dog out with me vs. leaving her at home because I know she’ll behave. Thank you for all of your help Nick, you've truely improved Bijou and my quality of life!

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)!

Nikki was a great dogsitter for our English bulldog and blue tick hound mix, providing an impressive level of care while keeping us very informed. She visited for a very comprehensive meet and greet before her twice daily visits, her vet tech background is so helpful and our dogs connected with her right away. This was so reassuring to know on our over week long international travels, especially with her many informative and fun, caring email updates, even keeping an eye on our home and caring for our fish as well. We are very happy to have found a wonderful pettsitting service and look forward to using Zorger's Pet Care again soon! Many Thanks, Calista & Jay

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.

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.

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

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!

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.

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

Kim is very professional and sweet, she took care of my kitty cat and chinchilla while we were away for our wedding. I have an incredibly needy cat but he wasn't super desperate when we got home so I could tell he had enough attention. We then used Kim to check on the house and chinchilla while away for our honeymoon. I usually worry a lot about my animals and can get a bit anxious but she was very understanding and I felt relieved to have her with them. I left my cat at a friend's house for our honeymoon but I think if we go on another long trip I will just ask Kim to come back. She has even brought in packages for us and made an extra stop to turn off my ridiculous house alarm so the beeping noise wouldn't bother my chinchilla. Highly recommend. (Oh and she is one of the only pet sitters we have had who isn't scared of the chinchilla. I can tell she is a real animal lover)
