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.
Jennifer analyzed my dog walking methods, suggested improvements, and walked with me until I was comfortable. My dog and I are much happier!
Reckless Adventures is THE BEST. They come to my home 7X per week. Some days just one visit in the morning is needed, other days they come once in the morning and once in the afternoon too. My dog loves them and they love her. They are true dog lovers which makes them extra special. Also trustworthy, 100% reliable (never missed one days work in 6 years!!!), and sweet. You will never find a better dog walking/babysitting service then Reckless Adventures.
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!
The Leash Dog Care team is really excellent! They provide daily dogwalking for our pup, and are always on time, and communicate extremely promptly. They really go above and beyond with the level of service and care they provide. 5 stars for their streaming service as well, it's a great way for me to keep an eye on our dog while he's on walks. High recommend the Leash team, it is so obvious that they love what they do.
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.
I met Deb Hewins while I was walking my dog. I see it as being at the right place, at the right time! Deb does not hold back in showing her love and affection towards all animals. At the same time, she maintains a degree of professionalism. This gave me the peace of mind in knowing my dog was in the care of someone responsible.At the time I employed Deb, I was recovering from foot surgery.She helped my recovery to go smoothly. She assisted me with errands, checking mail, groceries, and trash removal. Let me say this: with life the way it is today,it is pleasure to know folks like Deb are out there doing "acts of kindness". I recommend her without reservation. Jan
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!
Meri-Sue came to meet us and our new puppy at our apartment to make sure that it was the right fit. She was prepared and professional, yet very friendly and easy to talk to! Since we decided to have her come and walk our pup, she sends weekly emails detailing her walks with our pup and the best part is she is flexible and happy to work with us while we train our dog to walk well. Our lab mix has been walking better since she started walking him!! She is great
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.

I had been to other trainers, 3 actually, and no one could effectively help me with my dog. All I wanted was a dog I could take for a walk that woukdn’t Pull me down the street, other trainers used pinch and choke collars and my dog still pulled. Lee taught me in just two sessions how to get my dog to walk nicely...and she didn’t use any methods that hurt my dog. We (me and my dog) loved working with Lee and highly recommend her. Jill and “Brody”
So far so good! Diana has been walking our dog grace for about a week and has been wonderful. She's a very nice person, responsible, and takes good care of our furbaby.
Cristina is great with our dog Bear - he is so excited to see her every time she comes to pick him up. We also really appreciate that she shares pictures of their daily walks. She's a true animal lover!
This review is for my friend and not just the professional. I have known Samantha Kharibian since we were kids and she has always been the one with the huge heart and eagerness to please everyone she comes in contact with. She has been working in the customer service industry since she was 14 years old and a huge part of that was the hotel industry in particular. She worked for Hilton Hotels for 8 years and met a lot of great people from all over the world and that’s where she found her passion for weddings and events. Another huge passion for Samantha is her love for dogs and her want to help them. She works with dogs and has the compassion and patience it takes to make them comfortable and open up to her in an otherwise overwhelming atmosphere and that’s why I believe she will be a great fit for anyone who is in need of a wedding and event planner/coordinator. She has the ability to take all the stress away from the customer and make them feel like they are the only ones who matter because to her they are. Samantha is a great leader and team player and also the shoulder to cry on when its crunch time and your nerves are on edge. She is the whole package.
Maggs truly cares about the dogs she cares for. She specializes with dogs who have dog socialization issues and trains while she boards, Huge Plus!
Fantastic! Jake helped me correct some behavioral issues I had with my newly adopted border collie. It was a joy working with him and my dog and I are better for it! I learned so much as he was a wealth of knowledge when it comes to dog training. He puts the clients needs first and was very committed to the job. Every minute of our session was devoted to training, so you'll definitely get your moneys worth.
Maureen is absolutely awesome! She is prompt, trustworthy, and I would absolutely recommend her to others. My dog loves her and she has even helped me out when I was locked out of my house before. We look forward to working with Maureen for years!
