Stef looked in on my cat while I was away for 10 days. My cat was beautifully cared for, and even had some new toys when I returned. I will abolutely use Stef again the next time I need cat sitting.
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!
This is an absolutely fantastic company. I was super nervous about leaving my puppy to be walked by a stranger but I have been so incredibly pleased with Waggy walkys. I've had two different walkers and both have been so trustworthy, kind, and reliable. I don't ever worry about my baby I know she's well taken care of and loved when I'm not home. On top of that their customer service is great. So so glad that I decided to do this!!! They are awesome here!
In a word, Donna was AMAZING! She checked in everyday with updates and pictures. She even helped out with a minor, unrelated emergency that came up while I was away. I could tell from the pictures that my kitty was very happy, and when we came home; she was bubbly and upbeat like we'd never left. I highly recommend Donna to anyone looking for cat sitting services. She is extra professional and especially trustworthy. I'm just so happy I found her. We plan to keep in touch for our next long vacation. I can't thank her enough for how wonderfully she took care of my kitty, Buffie. Five stars is not enough. Thank you, Donna.
Dee, the owner of Romes Paws, is AMAZING. A neighbor recommended her when we had a very last-minute need for a pet sitter. Within an hour, I had confirmation from her and a VERY reasonable rate. She spent the whole morning with our puppy and had pictures and a full update to share when I got home. Our puppy ended up getting sick a few days later and needing intensive veterinary care. Dee is a vet tech so we contacted her immediately and she gave plenty of advice and offered to help us provide care for him when he is ready to come home. She is a true animal lover and is so responsive to her clients. Other services I contacted only offered walks, not day-time pet setting. They also required a very formal home visit before they would work with us. By contrast, Dee was really flexible and handled everything quickly over email. I can recommend Romes Paws wholeheartedly to everyone!
Canine Dominion was helpful and supportive in caring for my 6 month old puppy. I was very pleased with the level of quality service.
Vicki was a wonderful trainer who managed to help us train our 1yo rescue, Penny. She provided tips, advice, and made amazing suggestions to practice while not in training sessions. In the course of 6 weeks, Penny learned several obedience commands (stay, leave it, wait, etc) as well as tricks (sit, down, paw, crawl, etc.) Penny was difficult to teach when we first got her and although I have had a dog before, I have never had a puppy/younger pup and she wasn’t a good listener until we saught help from Paw Patrol of VA, LLC. Vicki was very flexible with our schedule, understanding of our ongoing frustrations in trying to teach her obedience, and was able to help us change our body language and tone to teach Penny what we wanted her to do. After the first 2 sessions, Penny recognized Vicki when she came to our home and LOVED school (mostly because she loves attention, praise, and training treats). I am so thankful my husband and I agreed to get a trainer for Penny and we really lucked out with Vicki. Thank you Vicki, Brittany and Sadie for your kindness. We would gladly hire Vicki again in the future and recommend her to others in the area!
After I contacted Barking Trails, I got a response back right away. The owner, Adam and the woman that was going to be walking my puppy came to my house at my convenience. We went over all the instructions and training techniques we've been working on. They have also been really flexible with our changing schedules. Great company.
Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.
Our fur babies (4-year old Lab Mix (w/anxiety issues) and 10-year old Puggle) spent the weekend with Cupid Pets sitters Bruce and Mary Lou and their lovely puppy Phoebe! Our pups had a blast!!! So much so, they didn’t want to leave when it came time to pick them up. We will certainly be using Cupid Pets service again for dog sitting and walking in the future!
We were VERY happy with Kim's dog sitting services! Kim took absolutely great care of our Pomsky and our Great Dane and sent us pictures every time she visited our house. She is responsible, punctual and our dogs love her!
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!!
I use Tails to Scales for daily mid day walks, periodic evening walks when I'm working late and in-home dog sitting when I travel. My dog loves her walker and I know that she is in good hands.
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.
They pet sit for my cat sassy. The sitter was a polite student from GW, my sassy fell in love with her and I feel very comfortable with her sitting with my cat while I'm away.
Lullaby Pet Sitters took good care of my bruiser!! I was hesitant at first to let a pet sitting company look after my pup but 10/10 I definitely reccomend it was like i never left ! They treat your dog and you like their own !
It’s nice to have someone who is experienced and reliable looking after my four footed family members. I highly recommend using her pet sitting service.
I was connected to Melina to help me on Saturday's to walk my pup. She has been so responsive and great with my dog. Other people have seen her out in the neighborhood with him and said he looks happy as can be. I really appreciate having someone that can help on the weekends since most dog walkers won't. I highly recommend Melina and I'm so glad we found her!
Debbie is great! From the moment she met our little pup, she was eager to help him reach his full potential. She sends daily updates when she visits with him, and when available photos as well. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for pet walking/sitting services.
Jeanne was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. I know my cat will be in good hands when I go on vacation.
Llunaly M. provided me excellent pet and human care for my Lab Mix Tango and generously helped me while I recovering from hand surgery. My dog was only a puppy and I was in a full arm cast for months. Tango took to her calm demeanor and happily awaited her arrival for their daily walks. She also would ask if I needed groceries or help with getting my mail. She loves animals and any pet parent would be well suited selecting Llunaly as their pet care provider. I can't recommend her enough! Rest assured, she is the best!
