Cathy was very profession and caring of my needs with my pet . I already schedualed another appointment . I was very satisfied with her.
Nikki was awesome! I've already scheduled my dog's next grooming appointment with her.
We needed obedience training for our 1 and 1/2 year old lab. She is very energetic and we had little to no control over her before Kristin started working with her. Kristin's love for animals was obvious from the start. She works not only with the animals, but with the owners as well. It can be very frustrating when you love your pet, but don't know how to communicate with them. Kristin changed all that, everything from walking her without her trying to rip my arm off, to keeping her off the counters, to unnecessary barking. Roxy's (our lab ) behavior has gotten so much better thanks to Kristin. I learned way more about dogs than I thought I would. It was so amazing to see the progress Roxy made each week.Kristin is very passionate about animals and is a pleasure to work with.
Joan was very responsive and professional. She provided excellent references. She had no problem medicating one of my cats. The 2 cats looked great upon our return, as did our house. Not the cheapest cat sitting service, but very professional and I had peace of mind.
Jessica was awesome! She sent me updates a pictures of my cat everyday. She was responsive, friendly, clean, and respectful. She made fir a stress-free cat sitting appointment. Highly recommended!
Yvonne has been a godsend! My husband was on his last nerve with out recently adopted schnoodle. He wouldn't come, stay or listen to almost anything we wanted and to top things off he was a nuisance barker. After our initial evaluation Yvonnne gave us some homework and within a week we saw a huge change with not much effort on our part!! We hired Yvonne for a six week package for a very reasonable price and have had two of our six lessons and I can say that Max is no longer in danger of going back to the rescue group : ) Her methods are very effective and have made a huge change in our lives with our new family member. Anyone having difficulties with their pet should absolutely have Yvonne work with them.
I always ask Krystal to watch my dogs and cats when my husband and I are out of town. She's the best ever! My dogs are so attached to her that when they hear her car coming they start going ballistic! She's always great with them, really kind and affectionate while being firm and authoritative. Ideal balance, I'd recommend her to anyone needing pet care services!!
MacKenzie did a wonderful job. Not only did she care for our cats, but she left everything neat and clean and brought in our mail and packages. She also gave me text updates on how the cats were doing. I’ll definitely be using MacKenzie for all our pet sitting needs.
The owners of Leash are extremely professional. They Livestream the walks so you can see how kindly they treat your pets. They take your special requests very seriously.
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.
After contacting 6 dog walkers and interviewing 3, Paws About Town was the clear choice. Here's why: 1) Great communication skills: Lauren and Jason are both incredibly responsive by text and email. You don't have to mention anything twice and when something is important they even confirm they have read it without you asking to relieve your anxiety. 2) Great with dogs. You may hear "great with dogs" about all dog walkers, but Jason clearly has an understanding of the behavioral science behind dogs and sounded more like our dog trainer than your average dog walker when we asked him what his training philosophy is. 3) Value. After considering 1) and 2) we were convinced Jason and Lauren were the best dog walkers we in our area and were near the most competitively priced. Although we pay $18 for a 30 min walk each day, Jason has taken our pup out on multi-hour journeys. 4)Experience. Unlike other dog walkers that work out of an agency and may have little experience or might walk your dog one day and then have someone else come the next, Lauren and Jason have been dog walkers for many years. The references they gave me to contact have been using them for 6+ years. 5) Good people. Jason and Lauren are by far the nicest among all the dog walkers we talked to. They were easy to talk to and I feel like I can trust them with my doggie.
Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

I met Diana and Louie back in October 2016 and then very quickly hired them to walk my dog, Chance. So far, they have been absolutely wonderful! Diana is very reliable and I know my dog is in good hands every time she comes to walk him! I also appreciate the daily notes she leaves for me, letting me know how my pet is doing! I am so thankful I found her and Louie! Thank you so much!
Cristina is professional, caring & reliable individual who always has my pet's safety and happiness as her number one priority! I highly recommend her for your pet care needs.
I have been working as a dog person for the past 4 years. I had previously worked as a nurse but decided to work full time with pets because there is unconditional love. Over the years, I have been privileged to meet some awesome dogs and cats. I have had animals all my life and have lots of experience taking care of pets with special needs. I offer pet walking, trips to off leash areas and pet sitting.
I've known Shivaun for over 5 years. She helped me with my mom and subsequently my pets. She is very conscientious and excellent with pets. I also use her other services and I'm very pleased.
As I type this our dog is here for the weekend we have used Erin before she is awesom yogi has fun we get updates every day with pictures highly recommend!
Andrea is amazing!!! She's punctual, kind, TRUSTWORTHY and most of all caring to my dog Bronson. I love coming home to her notes she's left about their adventures throughout the day as well as her facebook posts. It leaves me with great peace of mind to know he's so well cared for when I'm not home. Most of all she's flexible with my ever rotating work schedule. I would love to leave a terrible review so I could keep her all to myself but I'm well aware of how hard someone like her is to come by. You would be absolutely foolish to not trust the care of your fur baby in her hands!
Emily is extremely personable. My dogs love all the attention they get. She is responsible and very respectful. Her rates are super too! Emily goes the extra mile. I will definitely use her services again. Molly
