Stephanie was wonderful. She came and stayed at our home for one week, and fed our dog and cat, and did the walking of the dog as indicated and emptying of the cat box as instructed. In addition to doing what she was hired for, for a very affordable price, Stephanie was also very responsive to questions before she began sitting for us, and was available to talk over the phone during the time that we were away. In addition to all of this, she was available for an introductory "meet and greet." We liked her immediately and plan to use her services again in the future!

Stephanie has been great! She's been coming twice a day to walk our puppy and she's been super flexible about time changes and our work schedules to ensure Zoey doesn't go more than 3 hours between walks. She's also been great about sending us updates throughout the day so that we always know how our puppy is doing.

Stephanie was very accommodating. Came over on short notice to meet our dog before her scheduled walks. Provided updates after each visit which helped put me to ease since I have never left my dog with a stranger before. Will definitely be using her again in the future!

Amanda did an amazing job taking care of my cat. He requires insulin injections twice a day, and she was always prompt and efficient. She followed all my directions for the injections and would send me picture text messages to keep me updated each day. In addition to the insulin injections, she also cleaned the litterbox every day & played with my cat. Would definitely recommend!

We found Amanda on Thumbtack and Amanda is doing a great job for us and our home looks great. She is prompt, thorough, and friendly. Having someone who takes so much pride in her work and the outcome is the perfect recipe for a happy customer. We highly recommend Amanda, you won't be disappointed!

I forgot the challenges of a new puppy, since my older guy is 13. The beginning was a tough adjustment and our family needed help fast. After calling referrals from my sphere, I was still at a dead-end and a week later. I tried Thumbtack and Natasha was nearly instant in her response-- even quicker to meet us and assess the situation in comparison to the other respondents. After meeting Natasha I knew I didn't need to look further and she would be the perfect fit! Although she walked our guy for a week she carefully introduced him to Andre who would take over our daily walks. Natasha wasn't going to get off that easy though. We had a trip come up and our pup needed a sitter. Unfortunately, he was still due a set of shots, so interactions with other dogs had to be limited. Of course, Natasha came to the rescue. With daily photos, continued walks and lots of love, our little guy couldn't have been happier. Now that we're back to just the walks, Andre is just as great as Natasha. He's kind, gentle, and you can tell, really cares for the dogs on his route. I couldn't have asked for a better compliment to Natasha. After every walk we get a report of their route, dog's behavior and a few photos. If you're looking for a 5-star full-service pet company (because they do so much more than walking dogs), please reach out to Walk with Renzo and Ruby Inc. They're the best!

After a week of working with the Walk with Renzo and Ruby team, we have seen a noticeable improvement in our (already happy and energetic) puppy - he is walking better on the leash, more responsive to commands, and generally just happier when we come home from work. The members of the team that have worked with Archie have gone above and beyond every single day to provide an amazing and social experience for our puppy. We cannot recommend them enough!

Sarah Kiersch is a find! She is the original cat whisperer!. She is a mobile cat & dog groomer and her grooming of my long haired cat was flawless! She also has a studio where she grooms. I watched her grooming my cat and it's a lot of work! The lion cut Sarah gave her looks adorable. She clearly loves animals and knows how to calm them. And, she's a perfectionist!! Her fee is very reasonable ($80.00) and includes a dry oatmeal wash, soothing lotions, ear & teeth cleaning. I highly recommend her! ~Tybe Diamond, ibtybe@aol.com

I took my Cavalier puppy, Welly, to Sarah and it was perfect! I was so happy to find a groomer who took one dog at a time in comfort of a home. I felt safe leaving Welly there and felt that Sarah took great care of him and treated him like I would have! Thanks, Sarah! We will be back!!!

Sarah was really nice and ready and willing to work with me. Although, when I got my dog back, the cut was uneven and not the best.

The person walking my dog is EXCELLENT!!! Would have given 5 stars, but the communication with Waggy Walkys is unpleasant because the receptionist (two different occasions) is snide and disrespectful. Client is told to communicate via e-mail, but the e-mail address for communication isn't on the client forms. Not a biggy, but client contact should be efficient and painless.

Great dog walking service! Has both the perks of a large company (e.g., electronic scheduling/email, very responsive) while also connecting you with an individual dog walker who works to address whatever needs you might have. Love that it's automatic credit card billing too and the ability to have an online account.

I couldn't be happier with the training that we've received from Social Tailwaggers. Jodie, our trainer. is so patient and very knowledgeable. The first time we met, we discussed what training I was interested in and what goals we were trying to achieve for my dog, Cooper. Cooper was around 10-11 months old when we began our first training session. She immediately began to introduce new skills and commands to work on training Cooper. After each lesson, Jodie sends a detailed email outlining all of the skills we worked on and suggestions to help with practicing on my own. Jodie was also helpful with recommendations on types of toys and feeding bowls to help with the energy level of my dog. I would highly recommend Social Tailwaggers to anyone who needs help training a new puppy or an older dog. It is well worth the time, money and effort to have a well trained dog and not only are you going to have a well trained, better behaved dog, it's also a lot of fun time spent with your dog.

Jody came over for our first session last night and it was wonderful! She took all the time we needed to talk through a variety of dog behavioral topics, answering all our questions and giving us a lot of advice, including advice outside of the scope of basic training or what we had discussed initially. She brought interactive food dispensing toys to show us, gave us handouts of what we talked about, and showed us how to work on specific commands, coaching us through it. Jody also educated us on a lot of different ways to ensure our dog is safe, healthy, and mentally/physically stimulated - I really appreciated how we looked at how to care for and work with our dog on the whole, not simply to teach commands. The entire session was so helpful to us, and Jody was a pleasure to work with! We're excited for either more one-on-one sessions and/or a class with Social Tailwaggers!

Jody came by to coach us through some issues we've been having with our puppy: nipping, barking, jumping, and leash pulling. Jody spent 1.5 hours teaching us techniques to work with our puppy, and managing our expectations so that we know what's normal puppy behavior. We're already seeing great results! Jody was very patient, knowledgeable, and helpful as we work to train our puppy to be the best dog she can be! All of her techniques are positive, and reinforced with treats. No awful choke collars, shock callers, or leash jerking necessary.

Tristan is so great with our dogs! When the time for their walk with Tristan is near, they sit attentively and wait for hi to come. He's also firm but relaxed, which I makes him a good leader. That's key for us, because ONE of our guys thinks he's the boss! We've never had a dog walking service before, and Tristan was our first and will be our only, for as long as we can have him :) You can trust them with your woofies!

Oh my goodness, Jenny was the best, and affordable compared to DC area dog sitters. She had Pet Vet Background, so she's on top of everything, especially if your dog has meds. Sounds as if she was totally on top of walks and such. I will be using her again for our dog Daisy, hoping she doesn't become super popular from this positive review and others' reviews. I asked her if she would want to.watch my Teens too! (ha ha)

Jenny was wonderful with our dogs. Very caring and thoughtful. We received pet updates throughout our trip, which we really enjoyed. She reassured us she arrived and asked the same of us in case she needed to com back. A nice touch. On follow up, she came back and our dogs went over to say hi to her. Dogs always recognize a good dog person!

I am a life long dog owner. I have tried different businesses for grooming but I was looking for something different and something better for our current dog. Luca is our great Pyrenees - mix, rescue. He is an amazing dog but with his "guard dog" nature, he reacts when faced with dogs he is not familiar with. This trait meant we could not send him to the grooming options offered in the local pet stores. I found "Happy Paws" through "Thumb Tack" during a google search. I did not have to wait before I heard from Happy Paws. From the first contact, through my entire experience, I was communicating with the owner and then the groomer. Happy Paws has impressed me, as their years caring for animals has grown and developed into an amazing well executed business. They do not leave any stone un-turned. They have thought of everything. Every improvement and upgrade they have made, over the years, stems from the their interaction with their clients and the animals. Our first visit included a visit from the owner, Angela, and the groomer, Reena, who have worked together for years. Angela took the time to make sure I was comfortable with our first experience. I truly enjoyed her visit. She is very easy to talk with and so good at listening to all my question and/or concerns. As for the grooming experience, it deserves 5 stars as well. Luca is 76 lbs so I was so curious how the groomer would be able to bath and trim such a large dog - one who doesn't like water/baths. However, nothing fazed Reena. She handled Luca with confidence and as a result Luca had less anxiety because he knew he was being cared for and that Reena could and did handle him with great care. There is so much more I can share about our positive experience. But I will end with the fact that Luca looks beautiful and we cannot get enough of his soft fur and gorgeous looks! I am so grateful to Happy Paws and I HIGHLY recommend Happy Paws to every dog owner!!

We used Petstigious Pets for cat-sitting, and plan to continue to do so well into the future. Shatiya is a clearly an animal lover as well as professional, organized, reliable, and communicative. She arranged a pre-meeting to get to know us, our cat, our house, and our routine. While we were on vacation, she cleaned the litter, put out food and water, played with her, and picked up our mail and packages. After each visit she sent full reports and pictures. She is by far the best cat sitter we've had yet.

Shatiya is very professional and courteous and obviously loves dogs. My pup's walker, Allen, bonded with her right away and sends me pictures of her at each walk. After about five weeks of service I have no complaints. They have proven to be reliable and reasonably priced. They had an emergency early on that precluded my pup from getting walked on schedule, but they were able to communicate with me and the situation was managed. I would recommend them.

We've been using Petstigious Pets dog walking services since the end of December and we couldn't be happier. The company owners met with us on short notice and were able to accommodate our requests. We are very happy with the exceptional level of professionalism and near immediate responsiveness via text messages. They even send daily report cards with a photo or two of your animal. We highly recommend this company.

Clare is a great trainer, and took time with me by phone before we even met in person to better understand what my concerns were and my goals and expectations were for the training. She was always patient and encouraging, and never me me feel like my dog was bad. She helped me understand my dog's behaviors and how to best train and manage my dog. I noticed results almost immediately. She helps me beyond just the training sessions. She'll text me advice or suggestions, and she'll just check in periodically to see how the training is going between our sessions. One on one training sessions with Clare have been so helpful - no regrets at all in seeking her as a trainer. Highly recommend!

Clare Owings was just wonderful. Something that I found extremely valuable was that she listened to my situation very well so she gave me pointers and suggestions taking into consideration my lifestyle. My 9-month-old dog has learned so much just after two sessions with her. She is excellent with dogs and, maybe more importantly, with dog owners. She knew how to "handle" my dog and me pretty well. I appreciated her coming not only to my house but also to the dog park and to places where I walk with my dog. I really recommend her!

We had two 2 dogs 13 years old and my daughter recently introduced her 2 year old dog when moving back home. Things became out of control, especially at feeding time. Clair worked with us and the dogs and it was amazing how quickly they responded to the training! Life is good again. We continue to use her to keep the dogs in check.

Our 15 year old dog has literally grown up with WIP. From exuberant puppy to stately middle age to (now) a senior with vision and hearing problems, Sparky has always been provided with the perfect walker by A Walk in the Park. I attribute a lot of his excellent socialization to this. And from my point of view, I appreciate WIP's ability to cope with complex and sometime shifting scheduling, and changes in the dog's diet and capabilities. I recommend A Walk in The Park whole-heartedly.

Michele is the absolute best decision we made for our puppy, Milo! Milo is a chocolate lab puppy who had a problem with biting/mouthing. My husband and I were frustrated and decided a board and train would be the best decision while we were away on vacation. After two weeks, Milo is greatly improved! The biting minimal and he has learned so many new tricks! And added plus, Milo LOVES Michele and all 4 of her dogs. We plan to use her weekly for “daycare” as well as board him with her in the future! If you are looking for someone who will love your dog as their own, Michele is the answer.

Cyndie was a professional with her first appointment screening process. Lots of questions for me that even I hadn't thought of. We hadn't had a dog in a couple years, so her thoughts and comments were very much appreciated. Nancy did a great job keeping us posted from afar while we were away with great pictures of our dog Stella. Prices are very reasonable.
