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.

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.

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.

Nikki was very caring and responsive to our cats and us. The cats took to her immediately! I think we have found our permanent cat groomer! The experience was a joy and the cats are strutting around the house like they know they look GOOD.

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.

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 met Jess through my niece this past February. We had a last minute cat sitting need and Jess had experience cat sitting in her Jamaica Plain neighborhood. She was more than willing to relocate to Belmont for the week we were out of town; even though I suspect she had a longer commute to work than normal. Jess was extremely professional and personable from start to finish. We made a plan for Jess to visit our house and meet our cat the week before we left on vacation. Jess checked in when she said she would check in and arrived at the Alewife station on time. She was very thorough in our tour of the house. You could tell that she knew and loved cats from the questions she asked about food, play and routine. I knew I was leaving our cat in good hands. Jess knew that I was concerned about our cat settling in with her. She sent photos and a reassuring message early in our trip. When we got home, not only was the cat in fine form, but plants had been watered, her sheets laundered and the house left in good shape. I will definitely ask her to sit again next February. Regards, Bradley

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 am beyond pleased with this company. From the office manager to the walkers, everyone is kind, professional and caring. My dog LOVES his walker, Lorena. She is great and often texts me pictures at work of all the fun they are having. I have also used them for pet sitting while on vacation and they found me an amazing family for my puppy to stay with. I couldn't be happier.
