I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin, one of the trainers at The Canine Cure. We ended up board and training one of our dogs and boarding the other one as well. Caitlin took into consideration all of our concerns and did a great job building the foundation for our pups training. She was also very good about keeping us updated about both of our dogs while we were away on vacation and both of our dogs seemed like they were well taken care of during their stay. I will continue to use her services in the future and definitely would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Suki did a phenomenal job with my two cats. Thoughtful, TRUSTWORTHY, patient and so considerate. She made herself available for the holiday season and even came twice a day, sending photos with each visit. She also lives in Manhattan so I never worried about the metro causing problems with her getting to my place. When I got back, my guys were happy and clearly cared for in my absence (my girl cat gets pissy when she's pissed--if you catch my drift--but I was pleased to find she did not feel compelled to express her anger on my mattress. Thank you Suki!). I couldn't be happier! Suki will definitely be my go to pet sitter from here on out! Highly recommend her.

Our French Bulldog puppy, Lilo, had a great time with Kristin in her week-long board and train session. Lilo didn't have any behavioral issues, but we wanted her to have better recall on her basic commands. Kristin was very attentive to Lilo. Even before the board and train, Kristin spent a couple of hours on the phone with us to understand our goals. When Lilo was returned to us, she was a much better walker, was more settled, and had much better recall. Because we live in Manhattan, it is important to us that our dog responds to us in the midst of a lot of distraction. Kristin really worked with Lilo on this, and it showed. We will certainly be going back to Kristin if we have any training or boarding needs!

We are a household with very long work hours and frequent travel and having a reliable walker and sitter is really key for us. Sarah has been so accommodating and wonderful to our sweet rescue pup Sophie. After recently moving to the area, we originally found another business on Yelp that ended up really mistreating Sophie e.g. left her for hours alone in her crate. So it's such a relief to have found Sarah after that experience and to know our pup is in great hands when we're away. It's really just priceless. Sarah is our go to daily walker and we look forward to her frequent texts with updates from the walk. She's also been very flexible with last minute changes in our schedule including overnight boarding in our home. We really can't recommend her enough and feel she's a very dependable caregiver and excellent communicator.

Ed has been invaluable to us and our new puppies. We work in Manhattan during the week, and simply can't make it back to NJ during the day, but Ed has been there every day we've needed him, making sure our puppies get the attention, water, exercise, etc. that they need, and he obviously cares about the puppies. He's also given us links to articles, advice, etc. on raising new puppies. I fully recommend Edz Pet Walking!

I had the pleasure of meeting Adene when she came to feed and check on my cat several times this summer. She was thorough in asking what kind of care my cat needed, and was specific in how much time she would be able to spend with her. She clearly communicated the timing of her visits, and texted a picture of my kitty on each visit. Adene was wonderful and I will absolutely use her services again in the future! Highly recommended!

We love Prima Donna Pet Services! We have two large rescue dogs and have the utmost trust in Prima Donna's Pet Service. We rely on them to care for our beloved pets whenever we go away or just need a night out. In addition to the service being extremely reliable, we always know that our fur kids are cared by professionals with excellent judment, kind hearts and a love for animals. It's the only pet sitting service I have ever used that I know with 100% confidence that my dog kids will be cared for as well as if I were home.

I began working with Rick about a month ago to assist with my 18-month old pitbull, Petunia. Petunia had become aggressive to strangers (e.g., lunging, barking aggressively) when out in public and in the home and I was very much beside myself with how to address the behaviors. We had attempted obedience training at the pet store which did not correct the problem and she continued to worsen. People were afraid of my little pitty and I was developing a sense of hopelessness and resignation where I no longer even wanted to take her for walks and just figured we would have to live a limited lifestyle with her. As a last ditch effort to address Petunia's aggression, I had a consultation with Rick. He took an hour to meet with us to evaluate her. Petunia aggressively barked and lunged the whole time at Rick, but he thought she could be helped and we signed on for the ride. What a journey it has been. In less than a month, I have a restored sense of hope that Petunia can reach her full potential as a wonderful pet. With several training sessions and several trips to stay with Rick, Petunia is now heeling, is much more under control, is not barking aggressively or lunging on walks, and appears more calm and mellow overall. Rick has also taken much time to continuously meet and/or consult with me and my boyfriend on how to maintain the progress by teaching us how to handle Petunia on our own. We are still in the midst of Petunia's training, but I can see a complete 180 in her and am forever grateful that we made the decision to work with Rick. I highly recommend him without hesitation.

Our 4-month old Jack Russell puppy Chilli is very attached to us, so when we need to be out of town we do not want to just leave her at any pet hotel. We're so glad to have found Strut Your Pup - Jorge and his family provide us with the most ideal dog boarding service we were looking for. Jorge is very professional, knowledgeable about pets, reliable and friendly to both his clients and their animals. He always takes great care of Chilli, gives her all the personal attention she needs and also gives us a lot of reassurance by kindly sending us updates regularly on how Chilli is doing. Also, at Jorge's, Chilli gets to socialize with one or two other dogs under supervision, unlike in other commercial daycare where she might interact with random dogs every time, and close supervision is also not always guaranteed. We have full confidence in Jorge and his team, and would highly recommend their dog walking and dogsitting services to all dog lovers who care about their dogs. Thank you Jorge!

Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience

Tanya is a pleasure to deal with on a regular basis to arrange my dog’s walks. Marilyn, who walks my dog, is a doll. She is like a member of the family now. On the occasion that my dog spent 2 nights at Tanya’s house he was well looked after, and I got pictures and updates from Tanya. It is such a relief having Tanya and Marilyn looking after my pets!

Jenny was very so accommodating what I have to book last-minute. I was but a tease as soon as I walked into her home. You can tell she took so much time and effort putting all the beautiful details in the puppy playroom. What is immaculate beautiful and any pup would be happy there! When I dropped off my puppy she felt right at home and dug right into the toy basket! When I get back four days later to pick her up it was as if she didn't want to leave. Jenny kept me updated every day with fun pictures and reports on how she was doing. I highly recommend Jenny for all your pet service needs. I can't wait to use her services again!

I absolutely love KAH! The founder and employees are so passionate about making sure my baby Roxie is taken care of. Not only do they ensure Roxie gets her daily exercise, but we also receive awesome incentives that only KAH offers. I would urge anyone with a pet to run over to Khalifa's Animal House now!

Green Apple walks our yellow lab, James, 3x a week. James' walker, Renzo is great with him and is very good about telling us about anything unusual that happens in a walk. Honestly, there usually isn't anything to report as James' walks apparently go well and he invariably returns quite happy. Though James can't talk, he shows that he is happy to see Renzo. Green Apple's walkers are on schedule and it is reassuring to know Green Apple is bonded and insured and uses Pet Check technology so we ca see when James gos out and comes back. We recommend Green Apple to our friends.

Arelis was very professional and sent a lot of pictures and videos of my baby playing with hers. I knew he was in good hands and having tons of fun. I would recommend Arelis for all of your pet needs because she truly loves what she does and has a passion for all animals.

Donna's caregiver came to see my pets every day on schedule while I vacationed, and looked after them, including my special needs (deaf) cat. I got regular text updates including pictures. I came home to clean litterboxes, recently filled water and food bowls, and healthy pets. Very happy.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
