I am giving 5 stars because she did a very amazing job with my dog, she was rescued and needed to get GROOMED ASAP! She was really matted, she had about 4 inches of thick fur coat. Cathy had the patience and did a lovely job. I definitely will keep using her for my dogs grooming. She dematted my dog and now she’s running around happy. Thank You! I appreciate the fact you came in less than a 24hr notice. Reasonable price as well.

I honestly couldn't be more pleased by my experience with Jennifer. Since the moment she walked in the door, my dog Waldo has been significantly more obedient, attentive, calm and happy. Waldo was experiencing separation and isolation anxiety after a move across the country, barking and crying when I'd leave and continuing throughout my entire absence. I called Jennifer, who came to my apartment and asked me very detailed, intuitive questions and watched exactly how Waldo reacted when I'd leave. She also watched how I was behaving. She knew exactly what Waldo needed from me in order to assuage his anxiety and guided me to change my behaviors. I've been utilizing the tactics she gave me and in 2 days, Waldo's separation anxiety is essentially completely rectified, and now he goes peacefully to sleep when I leave. I'm able to use these tactics to improve Waldo's general obedience, as well. Jennifer is more than just a "dog trainer" but truly an expert in psychology, cognition and behavior. She is an extremely warm, vivacious and caring person; truly a one-of-a-kind individual with a remarkable life story and a tremendous amount of experience. I've passed her number on to 3 people already and will continue to do so with delight.

We had a wonderful time working with John! When he first came, our dog Ulysses did not like my fiance...the dog wouldn't even go near him. Now they are two peas in a pod. Ulysses is also doing much better when people come to our house. He's a completely different dog and I know we couldn't have done it without John. Trust me, this will be well worth your time and money. Plus, you get John's guidance for life! Thanks so much John!!!

I needed someone to take my dog out on rather short notice. Stephanie met me, along with my dog, the same night I contacted her. Upon meeting Roz, Stephanie was very calming and gentle with her. On the day of the visit, Stephanie texted me throughout the visit and sent me pictures of Roz. She even left me a note summarizing our visit. As this was the first time trying Thumbtack, I am overall very pleased.

Lesli is very reliable. She takes some time to interact with the cat while she's at my house letting the dog out. She always lets me know when she's been here and how the dog - and the cat - are doing.

Yvonne is AWESOME! a self proclaimed dog-person who won our cats over instantly. She clearly loves and values all animals! She took superior care of our 3 cats for a week (one of them needed meds) and took care of our house-related items as well. She stayed in contact and we felt secure that our fur babies were safe and happy the whole time. We couldn't have been more pleased.

I enjoyed working with Krystal. She is very friendly, very knowledgeable about dogs, and very professional. She was thorough in our first meeting to get to know my dog and his needs. She was very helpful to me in giving me information on ways to train my dog.

I struggled to find a trustworthy, reliable dog walker, and MacKenzie has been WONDERFUL. I have four dogs including a deaf Great Dane and an elderly, arthritic Mastiff, both of whom require special attention. MacKenzie loves the dogs and the dogs love her. She is a great find!

I have been working for lucky dogs daycare for about a year and a half. My experience with lucky dogs has been a great one. We are still a growing business and are building up our facility to be the best it can be. We are a full service daycare facility, but we also do boarding, training, grooming and we have our new retail shop with all sorts of goodies for your pups. I love being able to bring my dog Buffy in for a groom. She's older so she doesn't care for daycare, but she loves coming to Lucky Dogs for a good pampering by Jane. All of our groomers are great at what they do and our experts in their field. They have been grooming for many many years. The best part about working for lucky dogs would have to be the dogs. We have a really good group of dogs that come pretty much everyday. At lucky dogs your dog isn't just another name on a list, every staff member has their own favorites lol. And throughout the day each dog gets some one on one attention with their favorite staff member and vice versa. We take the time to get to know each dog and their behaviors, and try to cater to each dogs individual needs. So we can ultimately have a safer group of dogs to play with each day. We also have a really good group of staff members, some of them have been here for a couple years and a few have been here a little less. We really don't have a high turn around rate for staff like with most daycares. So our staff and especially the dogs are like family here.

So far, we've been really impressed with Muddy Paws! This has been a delightful e per once from the onset. Jena responded to our initial inquiry within a couple hours of posting. It was a Friday, and we were somewhat desperate to set up dog walking services for Monday. Jena was so accommodating! She organized for one of the managers in our area, a primary dog walker, and a secondary/backup dog walker to do a meet and greet on Saturday afternoon with the intention of commencing services the following Monday. All 3 of them came to our house on Saturday afternoon to meet our newly adopted puppy and review her routine, our wishes for how everything would come together, etc. So far, we're a week into it and couldn't be happier! Our walker is great with our pup, and consistently shares detailed notes after each walk - sometimes pictures, too! She's even kind enough to bring in packages/mail for us - above and beyond! We can tell our puppy enjoys her time with her, and the quick relief breaks twice a day have been great for helping us with house training her since we both work in the city.

We were in search of a new dog walker to help us with our 2 year old golden. We never expected to meet such a reliable and professional person as Jess. She brings a lot to the table with her many years of experience working with animals. Our dog absolutely loves her (he rolled onto his back within minutes of meeting her which is not typical of him at all!). I would highly recommend Jess to anyone looking for someone passionate about helping owners and their animals.

Jocelyn, owner of JW Pet Care, has been working with our family since the week we brought our Labrador puppy home. The thought of leaving our “baby” with anyone else, especially a person who we did not know, seemed unbearable at the time. When we first met Jocelyn, we were immediately impressed with her strong knowledge base, impressive experience, and most importantly, her comfort level and warm, natural interaction with our dog. Jocelyn’s innate love for animals shined through immediately, which really calmed our nerves! Jocelyn has consistently provided great care. She arrives within the requested time frame, feeds, plays with, and loves our dog! Each time she visits, she sends at least one, but often several, photo or video updates. What a comfort it is to know that while we are at work, our dog is receiving so much attention and TLC. As a business owner, Jocelyn is responsive, professional, understanding, and fair. I appreciate her flexibility and willingness to work with our constantly changing schedules. I have never felt like this is just a business to Jocelyn; this is her passion. We feel blessed to have found her.

Deb has been very flexible as I don't have a set schedule every week, which was a big concern of mine. She and her staff have been patient and understanding w/ my dog who is a rescue and has been quite a challenge!

I’ve had an incredible experience at K9’s Training. I brought my dog here after adopting her because of her bite history. Joe, the head trainer was phenomenal. He knew his stuff! I decided on the board and train program because I was making her a service dog. She did a complete 180! She has become the most obedient dog and her temper has changed completly. More importantly, Joe trains YOU! He helps you understand your dog and how to become a better advocate for your dog and communicate with them better. I highly recommend K9’s.

Being new cat owners, my girlfriend and I were worried about having to find someone to sit our kitty while we were on vacation. All anxiety went away after our first meeting with Gail from Happy Whiskers Pet Sitting service. Gail assured us that she could provide quality care for our cat in the comfort of our home. She certainly delivered on this promise! In addition to the usual cat-sitting tasks performed each visit, she sent us daily messages on how our cat was doing along with pictures. Our cat is quite picky and usually hesitant to interact with strangers, but she warmed up instantly to Gail. My girlfriend and I were able to have a relaxing vacation away from home and came back to a very happy kitty. I'd strongly recommend her to any pet owners!
