Very please with care of my yorkie King this was my first time letting my yorkie go for few days. This dog daycare was excellent 5 stars for me recommend this company.
I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.
They took care of our dog Phoebe. When we got home Phoebe was well taken care of as if she was their own dogs. Will always use Cupidpets.
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!
Haywood and his team are true professionals in the dog training world. They are superb in helping any dog, of any age or behavior, become better mannered, and safer to have in public. They understand dogs, and translate that expertise into practical, effective training programs for both the owners and the dogs. The important aspect is the owner is trained to reinforce the new behaviors. Haywood ensures that basic commands are learned by both dog and owner before they leave his care. Once you meet Haywood and his team, you won't go anywhere else. We did the the dog day care program, and we're heading back for more advanced training in the Fall. We've gone from being afraid to take our reactive dog out for walks, to being confident and comfortable walking anywhere thanks to the folks at Academy Dog Training.
Took Very good care of my dog while I was out of town.
Fabiola was very quick to respond to my request and within one day she was at my apartment meeting my two kitties. She is clearly an animal lover and my cats instantly warmed up to her! Two days later she was coming over daily to feed them while I was on vacation. She was so flexible (a few days my boyfriend was supposed to feed the cats but had an unexpected emergency and Fabiola responded right away and went over to take care of my cats). She followed up with me throughout the week and sent some photos and even went to get more cat food when I was running low. She cleaned their litter every day and it was so nice to come home to a fresh smelling apartment! I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan on using her in the future! Thanks Fabiola for making me feel comfortable leaving my fur babies with you!
Sharon is amazing! She makes our three dogs feel right at home with her sweet dogs. She sends pics and texts throughout the day/stay of our pets. They are treated like part of her pack and the peace of mind that they are happy is invaluable. Thanks Sharon!
Jenny is amazing! She gets along great with our pup! We have her come over every day, and even after two+ weeks she still is great about sending text and photo updates to let us know how everything is going! She even has a dog walking journal that she updates every visit with details about their time together. I couldn't ask for a better experience! She seems as genuinely concerned about our pup as we do, and that's all we can ask for!
I hired Evan to care for my three cats while I was on vacation. One of them is diabetic, so having good, reliable care is extremely important. He was kind and courteous during the meet & greet, and definitely put me at ease. I really loved that he provided client references to me, in case I wanted to contact other pet parents.
We have hired Jen's to walk our dogs daily and so far it is fabulous just having the piece of mind knowing our dogs don't have to be in the house all day while we are at work.
I am so grateful to Julie of PuppyLovin for her work with my dogs and can not recommend her and her services highly enough! Julie loves and cares for my dogs like they’re her own, and they adore and respect her back. She has been taking care of them for 2.5 years now, providing them daily walks during the workweek that feature exercise, adventure, and training, and boarding them often at her place when I travel. Of the numerous area dog care providers I’ve used over the past 7 years, Julie is hands-down the best and I’ve not considered using anyone else since I met her. What she has provided that the others have not is knowledgeable, consistent training, in particular for my anxious rescue mutt. The change in him through Julie’s loving but disciplined care and expertise has been remarkable -- he’s become much more relaxed overall, and now welcomes comfort and takes my lead when he’s anxious rather than acting out. He’s truly a changed dog, which brings me such relief! Both of my dogs have also become much better walkers and much better behaved when in proximity to other dogs, all thanks to Julie, who has involved her own dogs in the training of mine, to great effect. Julie is very generous with her time -- she updates me on her progress and explains what I can do to ensure I get the same great results she does. I’m confident you won’t find a more caring, committed, and professional trainer to work with you and your dog(s)!
My dog has stayed here and been lovingly cared for over the past few years. There’s a huge fenced back area away in a quiet country setting. My dog loved it!
I had one a day 30 minute walks for my dog during the day and it went wonderfully! I received a picture every walk which I really appreciated and a run down of what they did. It was very comforting knowing my dog was in good hands and I trusted the team with access to my apartment.
My dogs,cats and chickens were all perfectly cared for by Creature Comforts. So glad I found her!!
Jutka did a wonderful job of helping us train our 2 dogs!
