Really happy with our experience with Earl. He is knowledgeable, professional, matter-of-fact, and friendly. Didn't upsell, gave us the information we needed to make an immediate change in our dog's behavior. Super happy!

Cindy is the sweetest, most kind, fun loving animal/house sitter!! She does exactly what you ask of her, and much more! She even washed the bedding she used before we got home from a four day trip! She fed and watered my horses, and spent a lot of time out petting them and giving them treats until my friend came to let them out and do their stalls. My dogs are definitely under her spell!! I have four big dogs that can be a little overly happy. But, Cindy did what my pit bull asked of her every minute. She loves all animals as much as I do, and I would never use another sitter! We even work our plans around when she can come stay! She's funny, happy, and it showed when we got home. The animals were all calm and happy, as if we'd never left!!! I don't trust many people to care for my animals as I know they can be a busy handful!! But, she is willing to fit in to their schedules, she doesn't expect them to change for her being there. If you need a trustworthy, fun, animal loving person to help you take the trip you haven't been able to take, or help in a small crisis, Cindy is always who I'll use, and so should you!!!

Thanks Lea. This was a great experience for me. Great tips and techniques on how to train my dog as well as how to understand my dogs breed specific behavior. Lea is more than a dog trainer, she's a dog expert. I wanted someone to teach me how to best teach my dog and that's what I got. Very reasonable price for that kind of experience. Thanks again, Lea.

Kati Farney treats the dogs she takes care of as if they were her own. She does not view this as a routine - she truly loves the animals she cares for and it shows!

We have been using the dog walking and sitting services for over 2 years. We are very happy with the care our dogs receive. When we come home from vacation and the dogs are dropped off, they are well cared for and in good health. They get very excited to leave on vacation when we do as well and Like Summor and Shawn a lot. When our dogs have had health issues, we are always updated. Our one dog is loving, but dumb and eats a lot of non-food items. Summor, Shawn, and their staff always let us know when she has had any suspicious ingestions or colorful stools. Our Dog Duke got a cut right before we left for vacation. Summor took him to our vet when it started to look infected and got the care he needed. They are prompt with online billing invoices, quotes, etc. I have no complaints and only praise for their service and am a very happy customer!

Very professional and courteous trainer. Not only Angela understands dogs, she can also explain the processes to humans in a way that we get it. Thanks to Angela, I understand my dog's behavior and reactions better. She is a strong proponent of positive training methods. I would recommend Angela in a heartbeat.

professional people with great dog instincts. They are experienced and able to work with any dog. I have seen them take the time and patience to get an aggressive dog to a positive outcome. I would trust them with my dogs. Highly recommend.

I can't say enough good things about mother-daughter team Kristen and Natalie. It's obvious that they're doing this because they love being with animals. The first day I was gone they sent me a video of Natalie playing with my dog which I absolutely loved! I have never felt more comfortable with any dog sitter I have hired in the past. I knew that I could trust these two in my home and with my much beloved dogs. Kristen is professional, super friendly, and always responds quickly to messages. I have zero complaints and will use K&N Pet Sitting any time I need a sitter in the future!

Regan is amazing to work with. She has a very calming effect on animals, her energy is incredible. Every training session was well structured yet natural and positive. I always walked away from each session feeling more connected with my dog. Regan has given me the means to better understand my dog. She is very knowledgeable and experienced. We were so blessed to find such a wonderful and caring trainer, I would recommend her to anyone!

Cathy has taken care of our rat terrier Hossy on several occasions when we went out of town. She came to our home to feed him, give him fresh water and spend time with him. We felt very comfortable leaving him in Cathy's care. She loves animals, and I'm sure Hossy has really enjoyed all the attention Cathy gave him.

Laurie cat-sat our small clan of ferals while we were on vacation. She came out for a free consultation, was on time, very knowledgeable & comfortable with the animals & even brought them a little treat. While we were gone, we got daily text updates, she refilled our bird feeders, got our mail, watered my son's tomato plant & even brought the ferals more treats (at no additional cost!).. It was such a relief to have Laurie looking out for our little clan. We'll definitely use her services again & highly recommend her.

Diana did a great job dog sitting our boys. We were very surprised when we came home after a long weekend with the family and noticed that she hand wrote all of the daily activities that she did with our babies. You can definitely tell that she cares very strongly about animals, hence her current profession! Thanks Diana for the great care :)

I am working a part-time job currently as a nanny for the summer. Animals have always been my biggest passion in life which is why I am looking into becoming a groomer. I am willing to provide occasional care for most types of animals, including walking dogs. I am not afraid of big dogs either!
