Jen was absolutely amazing! I had no experience with hiring a dog trainer who is experienced in animal behavior so my husband and myself knew this was a risk. She came over to our house and within the first hour, had pointed out several things about our two dogs and the one we also just rescued. She had the dogs all together in the house and in the back yard. We learned so much from her visit! We want her to come back again and be around them more! I would definitely recommend her and have asked for her business cards so I can spread the word!!!!! Far exceeded our expectations.
Ted has trained two of my rescued British Labs. Both had behavioral issues difficult to deal with. After only two weeks with Ted the issues were significantly less. Ongoing trainging has resulted in happier more self confident dogs and a much happier owner! I would highly recommend Ted to help with any behavior issues or for any obedience training. A well trained dog makes for a better pet and happier household.
We were gone for 4 days, my dogs and cats received awesome care. The house and the pets looked great. Highly recommend her and she will be my go to person
We've known Cambre since she was a vet tech at Audubon Veterinary Hospital and she provided immaculate service & care to not only our felines, but every animal that crossed her path. She became our pet sitter immediately upon opening this business. How awesome that our bebe`s do not have to go through what used to be a traumatic boarding experience, but get personal visits, playtime & provision from such a loving and lovely person! She cared for Billie Holiday & Francis Poulenc until their passing (at 11 & 12 years of age). She cared for Bootsie until her recent passing at age 18+. We have continued joy and peace of mind that she cares for our newest additions to the family, Josephine & Theodora Louise! We are smitten with them and we're all smitten with Cambre! With much appreciation & gratitude - Love you!
Stacey impressed me from the start! She has a high level of integrity and a natural way with animals. She is honest, intelligent, caring and professional, which immediately allowed me to trust her. She comes prepared with a packet which included a number of pertinent questions regarding the needs of my kitties and myself. She is beyond organized which I love. An organized pet sitter truly a beautiful thing. Stacey is insured and bonded as well as Red Cross certified which speaks volumes. Not only does she have her own pets to whom she is devoted, she also volunteers at the LA-SPCA, opening her heart and home to foster animals. We have three male cats; Allie, Tim-Tim and Sammy with totally different personalities. Prior to meeting with Stacey, while chatting on the phone, I mentioned that our cat Allie has Pica and is highly anxious. Pica, is a disorder that causes my cat to chew and swallow non edible materials such as garbage bag ties, dental floss, string, ribbons, etc. It is a very scary disorder and Stacey was familiar with it. Stacey, asked apt questions regarding Allies behavior and what he inappropriately chews and/or eats. On one of our trips, I suddenly thought I had left dental floss on the kitchen table. Stacey immediately checked and verified that I had not left anything out, alleviating my worry. Allie is such an anxious kitty that he only allows myself and my husband near. It was truly amazing to see that after 4 days, Allie allowed Stacey near. She sent the pictures as the proof! She watered my out door plants, collected our mail and newspaper daily. We received a "final notice" informing us of a parcel that needed to be picked up at the post office. Stacey was so sweet she offered to pick it up. She also helped me with selecting the right food for Sammy who needed to lose a little weight. She suggested switching Sammy to grain free cat food and voila, he is losing weight! In addition, I consulted with my Veterinarian regarding Sammys diet and he supported the diet change. Last but not least is Tim-Tim, my totally lovable and trusting cat who Stacey confirmed was the most approachable of my kitties. However, Stacey spent time loving, playing and caring for ALL of our babies. Every day she sent me amazing, frame-ready photographs and informative texts which I totally loved! She was a real God send! Stacey really understands animals on a level that I've never seen in anyone. You could seriously compare her to a dog/cat whisper. She gave me certain advice and information with regards to understanding our pets and how they think. Stacey is really born to care for animals! She came into our home and surpassed all of our expectations. She took care of everything! There is NOTHING like knowing your babies are being taken care of by someone who loves animals and has such a good heart, as Stacey does. Anyone who hires her will love her to pieces and know that they are leaving their babies in the BEST hands! Sincerely, Erin C.
I was very excited to rescue my first dog. I was also very surprised at how unprepared I was to train and take care of my new pup! Thankfully I was given Tiffany's information and was able to easily schedule a training session with her! Duke is doing so much better and I look forward to more sessions with Tiffany.
Matt is an extremely skilled trainer who dogs just seem to immediately listen to and love. He also does a great job explaining things to those of us who don't understand all the reasons dogs do what they do! He is especially good with aggression/behavior issues and helped me turn my extremely leash reactive dog into a pup that can happily walk around parks on leash :)
She takes care of my big bully dog and he loves when he goes to her. Very easy to work with and amazing with animals. She really knows her stuff and gives me advice on medically for my baby as well.
Katie has been babysitting for our kids for the past four years. She is punctual, responsible, energetic and friendly. Our dog also adores her and enthusiastically greets her at the door whenever she arrives. She is great with him and also very patient as he is a rescue dog. It is clear that she has way with animals.
Mel is a very caring, considerate and competent guardian of animals of all kinds. She has decades of experience with her own pets and a love for animals that ensures she always has their wellbeing at heart. I have come to know her as empathetic and kind, and can wholeheartedly recommend her.
Mark helped to care for our dog that had diabetes and other health problems. He did an excellent job giving him his insulin shots and loving on him! He is honest, knowledgeable and truly caring! Thanks Mark!!

I love working with all animals and have worked with 100 dogs in the past. I am SPCA certified in animal CPR and first aid and have worked beside many animal trainers.
I will be happy to walk, feed and water your animals. I can also bring them to a dog park if allowed. I will be glad to play with them for a period of time. I love animals and have had dogs all my life.
My service stands out because I love animals more then anyone can and I feel like I can be trusted
I always had animals growing up, mostly dogs. I love all animals, especially dogs. I currently own a pit bull terrier.
I am an animal enthusiast and appreciator from Massachusetts, now living in New Orleans, LA. My love for animals began from a young age with family pets and only blossomed from there with my connection to all animals I've met. I am a dedicated member of the ASPCA and have developed the knowledge and awareness necessary to provide care and comfort to dogs, cats and other animals. Having volunteered at a variety of dog and cat shelters, I know the fun (walking, socializing, and feeding) and understand the not so fun but necessary aspects of caring for animals (cleaning). Let me help exercise, feed, clean after and be present with the animals you know and love when your busy schedule is at its peak.
I love animals, and I am comfortable with any size and type of dog. I have watched up to five dogs at one time. I also work with cats.
I will sit for or walk any of God's creations, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you want dependability, I'm the one.
I treat animals as if they were mine. I believe that animals are just like people. They deserve the love and care just like our children.
