Ryan is great with my dog. Dog can't wait to see him again!
Our Waggy Walkys dog walker is wonderful.
I used Canine Dominion to help me with my aggressive dog. My dog would go after other animals and sometimes people. Jauvarie the owner took a special interest in my case and came out to help. When the lessons was over my dog was a completely different dog. Jauvarie's knowledge and skills are amazing. I would definitely reomment him to my friends.
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!
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.
I enjoy training with these guys and gals. They always have answered the "hard" questions whenever they eventually do come up. Nick has mastered the nuance of dog obidience training and doesn't mind sharing his knowlege with his students and being available for questions by text, email, or cellphone at all hours of the night and day. Nick's motto is "contact me anytime, day or night, rather than train incorrectly for 7 days". I highly recommend the "package deals" being offered rather than purchasing single lessons saving $50 right off the bat on four lessons.
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.
I strongly recommend Cupid Pets for walking/boarding your pets. After I found Cupid Pets, I do not hesitate taking short or long vacations because I know my dog will always be in good hands. Kimberly, the owner, and her helpers are all reliable and trustworthy. They love what they do and are very caring.
I never had a dog before, but Haywood made it easy to get used to a dog. The training wasn't just for my puppy, it was for myself too. The classes were always well curated for each dog and their owner.
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!
Hired them for daily 15 min walk for my dog. Reliable and they provide small reports for how his walk went. Andre has been very responsive to any schedule changes and questions I've had regarding their services.
Jade was very professional. She took the time for my dog Bob to get comfortable with her. Jade has a great way with my dog.
Could not be happier w/ Fabiola. She clearly cares deeply about our four-legged friends and takes a personal interest. We recently had a situation where there was a potential emergency with my dog before she arrived for a walk (ate some potentially toxic). Fortunately it was just a scare and nothing happened, but Fabiola contacted me and we were able to handle it and my dog is doing fine.
We were overwhelmed by the kindness and care DogTown put into our pups stay. The property is well set up for a young powerful dog like our boxer to run his legs off and equally accommodating for our aged bichon. Both dogs returned in a super happy and healthy state. Our drop off and pick up times were not the most convenient hour for any host but DogTowns's super hero hostess Sharon was so totally accommodating. She is also super knowledgeable about both our breeds and had terrific advice in general. We really loved the experience. We live in downtown dc and have tried many locations around the DC but don't ever expect to use another. It is DogToen for us from now on.
Ron is a very caring and compassionate man who my dog loved! He is knowledgable about dogs and their needs. I would highly recommend him.
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.
Spoiled Pawz has been excellent. Caroline has been walking my dog for more than 5 years and he just loves her. She is part of his family and daily routine. I trust her completely with my best buddy.
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!
I will walk, train, or sit for your dog while you are at or away from home. Multiple-dog homes are welcome.
I love dogs. I can walk your dog happily. I can also take care of your dog at your house, including feeding your dog as well.
