I was very pleased with the grooming service provided by Cathy. She consistently responded to me leading up to the service within 5-10 minutes. She arrived 15 minutes prior to the designated start time to give herself time to set up and prepare. She took her time with my dog, Maizee, who's only 4 months old and was very patient with her during her very first grooming! The best part was that my pup didn't even have to leave the comfort of her own home which eliminated any stress or anxiety about getting groomed! Also - I was able to get things done around the house! It really was a win-win! I would not hesitate to hire Cathy again. A great value for the services that are provided in the convenience of your own home! Thanks, Cathy!

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 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.

Stephanie looked after Nutmeg while I was away in California - she’s like a cat whisperer! Nutmeg is really shy and can be jumpy but she played with Stephanie and ate treats out of her hands too! We’re planning on asking Stephanie to catsit for us again when we travel in the future.

I couldn't be more satisfied with Stephanie as a dog walker. She responded to my last minute request. Spent more time than was expected for walk and play time and sent me pictures every day. She has an affinity for animals and people! I highly recommend her for pet walking/sitting.

I heard about this service from my neighbor. I couldn't have made a better choice for my furry baby, Elijah. April is so friendly, courteous and professional. She is consistent and reliable. Elijah went to her immediately and even took a treat (his own) offered by April from her the first day. This is remarkable, because my baby does not take treats from anyone. I could tell he really liked her; Elijah has good judgment of people! He has been enjoying his daily walks. I highly recommend Fairbanks Four Paws Dog Walking to family, friends and colleagues.

April has been awesome. I desperately needed my younger dog walked everyday while I’m at work and heard of April through my landlord. April texts me how mulder did that day and mulder is way happier and not eating couches anymore as a result. I’d recommend her to anyone.

For several years I've wanted to hire a dog walker, but was worried that my shy and timid Boarder Collie wouldn't take to a stranger -- it took my mom and husband years to take my dog out without me! This year, with my pup turning 11, I decided to give it a go. And I couldn't be happier with Cloud9!I explained my concerns, and Brad took his time to bond with her --and at her pace. He is patient, reliable and always responsive. And if I need to stay late at work, Brad is always willing to come for another walk. Thank you Brad, and thank you Cloud 9!

We have had Brad walking out dogs for a few months. He comes 5 days a week to walk and feed Hank and Tama. He has also come on a Saturday with late notice. He has been absolutely fantastic with Hank and Tama. Tama is a rescue from Puerto Rico and has anxiety with strangers. When we met Brad for the first time he let her come to him. She sniffed for a second and then laid right down. She has never done that to people on the street. He has gone above and beyond for our babies and we couldn't be happier with his service

Brad is great and always provides reliable dog-walking services for our pup! He is very flexible and accommodates our ever-changing schedules. We are very happy with Brad, and our dog is too! We would recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent dog walker!

We found Nathalia right before adopting our boxer-mix puppy. We had no idea what his temperament would be like since he was a rescue from the South and didn't have much information about his first few months of life. Nathalia met with us beforehand and helped us get prepared to welcome our pup. We also go to meet her incredibly loving and well-trained pooch, Paris who would become our Dempsey's best friend and mentor. Nathalia provided Dempsey with daily walks, including play-time with other dogs which was so important for his social development. Dempsey is a very timid dog and Nathalia worked tirelessly to train him to be a happy, well-adjusted dog. Nathalia also borded Dempsey on several occasions. He was always exhausted and happy when we picked him up! We knew he was in a loving home with his best friends and we couldn't be happier about that! Sadly, after 2 years of working with Nathalia, my husband and I moved away and had to say goodbye to her and Paris. Believe me that was one of the hardest moments I have had as a dog-parent. We will never find a pet-sitter as loving and attentive as Nathalia and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.

Nathalia has been waking our dog Chooch for 3 years. She is passionate about her job and is very reliable. We have also used Nathalia's boarding services. Chooch loves his sleepovers with Nathalia's dog Paris :) He is always happy to see Nathalia and returns home with a wagging tale. I would highly recommend her services!

With my previous dog walking company, I was not satisfied, but with Nathalia, I finally feel at ease! She is professional, kind, and cares a lot about doggies. When I come home from work, Jackie (my pooch) is very happy. I definitely recommend Nathalia! You will not regret having her as your pet sitter!

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.

Yvonne was awesome. I've never felt more comfortable leaving my house and cats with someone. She made sure she saw both cats each time she visited and sent me updates during the week plus a lot of extra things my other cat sitters didn't provide me. Very reliable and I would highly recommend her!

Shayna is the consummate professional. Besides loving and caring for our dog, who believe me, is not easy, she thought to ask everything before accepting the assignment. I'm pretty sure my dog would rather live with her. She updates you while you're away, she asked about watering plants and taking in mail, she loves your pet like you do, and she is the sweetest, most patient, thorough worker I know. You won't be sorry you hired her.

I can't speak highly enough enough of the service we have received from Nanny Wags. Shayna, our sitter goes way above what is required. The daily texts and pictures were just what we needed to not worry about our two needy puggles and be able to enjoy our vacation. We have also used Nanny wags for dog walking and the service has been outstanding. We are so happy that we found Shayna, she is amazing!

Shayna is the absolute best, ever. Both myself and my dogs (children) have been completely won over! One of my dogs is very skeptical and can be tough, but Shayna has put in the extra effort and is now one of the best part of my babies' day! So thankful to have found her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

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!!

We adopted a rescue dog 3 months ago. He is two years old and was a bundle of anxious energy. He became very attached to me and became jealous and reactive when my other dog or husband came near me. We signed up with Jess the 2nd week after he came to live with us. We met weekly for 6-7 weeks. Jess is an excellent trainer and was able to recognize his behavior right away. She listened to our concerns and has trained us to deal with an anxious reactive dog. He has made so much progress!! We had times when we weren’t sure if he was a good match for us. Jess gave us the confidence and taught us how to work with him to help him to be more calm and trusting. He is a great dog!! We love him. Thanks to Jess we feel we have been able to provide a good home for him and are so happy we met Jess when we did. We are going to continue to work with Jess and would highly recommend her!!

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.

MacKenzie cared for my cat in my home for 5 days from 8/18-8/22/17. She came twice a day to feed and change water for my cat. She also checked his litter box and kept it cleaned out; added additional litter as needed and swept up the area around the litter box. She spent some time playing with my cat, too. I was pleased that he became very comfortable with her as this was the first time I had used a cat sitter for my 2 year old cat

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!

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.

I have nothing but the highest regard for Jan and her true love of animals. I met Jan was she started to dog walk my 2 dogs, sad to say, I moved too far away for us to continue this relationship, but now Jan takes care of my dogs when we go away on vacation or just for a long weekend. I actually enjoy my time away so much more knowing that they are in a loving home and not sitting in a kennel. Jan is a trusted and reliable care giver and I don't hesitate for one second recommending her services! I'd be happy to elaborate further if anyone cares to.

Jan is great with my dog Tia! When I first adopted Tia, I needed to find a dog walker quickly, as I work full time. Jan was very flexible with meeting both myself and Tia. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and treats Tia as if she is her own pup. She is so great that I have recommended her to new neighbors that have moved in and have dogs. I can't recommend and sing Jan's praises enough! Tia looks forward to her daily walks with Jan and Jan even sends me pics during the day, which I love!

Julisa, was very attentive to our dogs needs. I liked that she eased her way to him and made him feel comfortable with her. She kepr us aware at each visit with text messages and pictures of her interactions with the dog. At the end of the daywe came home to a detailed log of each visit which ler us know how the dig was doing throughout the day, whether he went potty or his behavior in the house. Price wise you cant beat it. Very pleased with her services and our dog liked her too. I would definitely use her again no questions.

Leaving my boy Jake in a kennel is not an option. Thou some kennels may be outstanding, I just can't imagine leaving him in an unknown place while I'm on vacation. Yet I have left him at home with Emily. Emily is a very loving and extremely capable. I know she is taking care of Jake, the same way that I do. Its the best of both worlds. I am also comforted by the fact that my home is not empty. I have total confidence that my home is safe, and my best buddy is being well cared for. I highly recommend her.

Emily has been taking care of our "baby" Belle for the past few years. There is nothing better than going on vacation and feeling so comfortable that our home and our pets are well taken care of. She takes such good care of Belle, and I think Belle is sad when its us coming through the door and not Emily. She spoils them and the house is as clean as I left it. I highly recommend Emily to everyone and anyone that loves their pets and doesn't want to put them in a kennel while you vacation!
