    Verified Review
    Judy made a good connection with our shy cat, got on well with the bold one, did more than we expected, connected with our neighbors, was obviously committed to her work, and did an excellent job.

    Pet Professionals has been caring for my dogs for over 10 years, on weekly basis. It gives me great peace of mind to know that my 4-legged baby is being well cared for. Pet Professionals is responsible, dependable and flexible. I love the notes left after each visit.

    Dependable, trustworthy, excellent pet services. We have used Pet Professionals for years and always receive excellent service....plus our domestic house cats love Judy when she comes in to check on them. On a scale of 1 to 10 they are a 15!!

    Judy from Pet Professionals has walked every dog I have ever owned (Rudy & Zoey (kennel mates), Sadie and now Cody). I trust Judy with the most important part of my life, my dogs. Not only has she walked them, but she has also given me training advice. Consistency with new pups is very important and her advice is priceless. She has been so flexible, if my schedule changes she adapts for me. My dogs have all loved her beyond belief. I am so fortunate to have found Pet Professionals, buy mostly I am lucky to have found Judy. She is not only the caretaker/walker of my dogs, she has also become a very close friend.

    Judy and the Pet Professionals crew have been walking my two dogs several times per week for years now. They've always done an amazing job. They're reliable, trustworthy, and the dogs love them. I can't imagine using anyone else.
