Professional polite and very concerned about the dogs care She was pleasant and very responsible Did a wonderful job on the dog
We have a almost 2 year old goldendoodle named Hudson, he is the sweetest but once my 10 month old son started crawling and walking Hudson become a little aggressive, growling and biting the air near my son. I was really anxious and nervous about it so I contacted Jennifer to help and she come over the next day, which was wonderful. She explained where the growling and insecurity was coming from. Just the explanation and insight alone was helpful for me and my husband to start making some changes. Hudson boarded with Jennifer for 7 days and when he returned he was cool, calm, and collective. He seems to know his place a little better and feels more confident even with a baby walking around his space. Its just really nice to have a trainer truly care about your dog and the wellbeing of the whole family. I highly recommend Jennifer and her services. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and gave our dog the tough love he needed!
My experience with Nikki was amazing. She went above and beyond taking excellent care of my cat. She provided daily text updates with pictures, and was professional in every aspect. Highly recommended! Ross B.
Deb helped us out in a pinch and really came through. She did such a wonderful job taking care of our dogs, we will be hiring her again for sure. I would recommend her to anyone looking for quality pet care.
Can't say enough great things about Jess! We were away for a couple of weeks, but the whole time felt very comfortable leaving out cat in Jess' extremely capable and responsible care. Would recommend to anyone looking for great service at a very reasonable rate!
Joan has been wonderful to deal with and takes great care of my two dogs! She is very accommodating with scheduling, i.e. you can text her in the morning if you determine that you do not need a walk for the day. She also leaves detailed notes after their daily walks so I know when they had gone out and what they had done. It is so nice to know that my dogs are taken care of by someone who really cares for them ...the dogs look forward to their daily walks with Joan! If you work with Joan and the Reckless Adventures team you will be happy you did :)

My experience has been wonderful! Jess treats my puppy like one of her own and I know they are both happy to see each other. Jess is very responsive and I have complete confidence in her taking care of my pets when I'm not home.
Matt takes photographs for Camp Pasquaney and organizes our photo page for families and friends of campers. He gets his work done on time, responds well to feedback, and puts a lot of thought and care into his pictures.
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.
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 recently hired Leash when my regular dogwalker went on vacation. We met at my house, took a walk together with my dogs, basically became acquainted. I decided to hire Leash that day. They were prepared with the administrative stuff - just basic paperwork and forms to set up my online account, which was all very quick and easy. They took care of my babies for me for two weeks, walking them midday while I was at work. And on unexpected longer days at the office, I would simply text Leash to ask if they could do an additional walk in the early evening - they're schedule allowed them to accomodate. Leash has been great. They are sensitive to my dogs' needs, are very kind to them, and very respectful of my home and neighborhood. They even videotape their walks, texting me a link immediately following each walk - pretty awesome! And payment online is also very quick and easy. I will continue to be a client. I highly recommend Leash Dog Care!
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 went through a few other walkers before we found Lauren and Jason, and they are far and away the best out there! Friendly, well-organized, personal, well-trained, extremely responsive, and always available to take our little pup for walks. They also provide the best bang for the buck out there! We have even used them a few times for overnights. They pick up / drop off our pup, take her to their house and let her roam. We refer to it as "The Ranch" to our pup, and it might just be her favorite place! Jason and our dog are basically best friends, he always leaves us status reports of her walks and overnights. It is so refreshing to have such a personal service, as the other places and walkers we have used have seemed anything but that. This is key for trusting someone that has access to your home, but more importantly someone that takes care of your dog!
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.
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!
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!
I would very much recommend having Meri-Sue care for your pet! She truly set all of my worries at ease about leaving my "fur baby" for the week. I'm an overprotective Mom to a very spoiled kitty so saying this means a lot! Once you speak or meet with Meri-Sue, you will understand just how wonderful she is! Don't look any further for your pet sitting needs, contact On The Go Pet Services :)
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.
My dog has never been happier since she started walking him
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!
