Packman Dog Walking & Better Behavior is AWESOME! The "Better Behavior" is in there for a reason. Not only is Frank a great dog walker, he is also an excellent and effective dog trainer. The concept of combining walking and training is genius - I only wish I had found Packman Dog Walking sooner! I have an 2 y.o. 80lb mixed breed pup. In general, he is well behaved but there were some behaviors that I had just learned to "live with" - i.e. pulling on the leash, barking when the doorbell rings and not always listening when I say "come." We had tried most of the "puppy classes" and trainers in the area and spend a lot of money without much success. Amazingly, within 15 minutes of meeting Captain, Frank had him sitting quietly greeting the postman at our front door. In addition to his excellent dog training, Frank is unique in that he has a keen understanding of dog psychology. Before finding Packman, I was sending my dog to a few different "doggy daycare" facilities in the area. Unfortunately, on a few occasions, my dog came home with cuts and limps and acting out of character. I don't fault these facilities (it is impossible to keep your eye on 20 dogs at one time...), but Frank has offered a great alternative way to socialize my dog in a setting where there is always a human in control. No matter how many dogs Frank is walking, he is always aware of each dog and is therefore able to facilitate healthy, fun socialization. I have a fitness tracker on my dog and I've noticed he gets the same amount of activity in a 1-2hr walk with Frank as he did when he spent a whole day at a daycare facility. Furthermore, Frank is incredibly professional. There is a great deal of trust involved in letting someone into your home while you are not there. Frank has been professional, responsive and respectful of my house and roommates on each and every occasion he has been here. I am at ease knowing that my dog and my home are in great hands while I am working.
Jessica took care of our crew while on vacation and did great. She communicated with us, provided pictures and resolved any problems that came up. She will be our first choice for future pet sitting needs.
I travel a lot. Nancy hires nothing but top notch people for her services. I hate being away from my dog Jess and while I am out of town, I know she is getting lots of love, above & beyond care. I get updates and pictures everyday about what all she got to do throughout the day. I would never use anyone else. My dogs happiness and health are my top priority I can't thank them enough for their love and care for my Jess.
Laurie is amazing! I have a dog that is very timid and anxious and so keeping her in her own environment seemed much better than kenneling her. Laurie was a perfect fit for us and our dog warmed up to her quickly. We also have cats and a guinea pig and Laurie was great with our pets' weird dynamic. She communicated daily via text and even sent pictures (which of course made my heart melt and helped me be much more comfortable while away!). I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Laurie for taking care of our beloved furrbabies!!! We'll see you next vacation!
I take my dog Hazel to work most days with me. However there are occasions when I need to leave her at home and that's when I call Penny Pinching Pooches. I love how flexible and accommodating Sherrill and Penny Pinching Pooches has always been. She always responds promptly to me when I call for her services and its so EASY to book! I have used their services for over a year now, and I know I can always count on them to be there when I need them to be and to take great care of my "fur baby".
Oh, Sandy...Chad & I haven't contacted you in 4 years but were talking about you tonight- when I found you here I just had to take the opportunity to give you insurmountable thanks for our 2 children, Buddy and Daisy. To anyone who needs reassurance that this woman will treat your babies as her own, please consider my humble recomendation reassurance that, Chihuahua or not, they will be in great hands.
As a veterinarian myself, I value honest and compassionate care of animals and as a pet owner, they are like children to me. I would guess most people reading this review are looking for someone who is great with their 4 legged friends but as the proud mum of 2 cats, a bird, a lizard and 3 snakes I can tell you I have put Jasmine's pet sitting skills to the test over the past 2 years. She is great with all my animals, will take care of any special requests I have for each of them and is very flexible with her schedule whether it means a short notice pet sitting request or the need to extend services. The best part is we get to leave our pets in theory familiar comfortable home which makes it much less stressful for us and them and less expensive than a boarding facility.
Bonnie groomed my pets for many years, and did an awesome job! I did finally find another good groomer, but no one will ever top the job Bonnie did. She would even keep my dog longer if I had things to do, and let him play with her dog. I could always count on Bonnie! Miss you, girl!
My pets love their Pawtastic Petsitter! They really kept me out of a bind when my roommate and I were both going out of town- now, I don't even bother my roommate with it anymore! My sitter came over several times a day and sent updates while I was away. Really gave me peace-of-mind to know they were well taken care off, and that allowed me to enjoy my trip. I highly recommend Pawtastic Petsitters!
Russiana is a super dog lover! my dogs were treat as kings in her care!

My passion is dogs. My dogs are not just my pets, they are my furry children. I'm a little obsessed! I love helping others take care of their little ones and it is something I am always on board to do! Your dogs will always feel loved and cared for, and spoiled in my home. They will be showered with treats (with your permission of course) and lots of snuggles.
I love animals and will babysit any type. I love going for walks with dogs or playing with cats and even interacting with other odd animals.
