Christine has taught us effective methods to positively redirect our dog away from his undesirable behaviors. We would highly recommend her to anyone that needs help with training their dog.

We sent our dog for training and boarding with Matt. It has been wonderful experience. She listens without yelling. No more jumping, barking, nipping...Matt did a fantastic job training our dog and us! Matt is calm, kind and extremely good at his job!!

Jessica kept our high energy dog, Sookie, for 8 days over Christmas. We were so extremely pleased with the service that she provided. She sent daily updates and even a picture, which was such a comfort to us. Jessica kept a detailed log of food and activities which was also comforting. Even ridiculous things that we dog owners think are important (like special treats and activities on Christmas) were important to Jessica as well. We will leave Sookie with Jessica again and again (as often as she'll say yes!).

Carrie is GREAT! She is clearly a pet lover (as is her partner). She makes an effort to be flexible to one's schedule. She does not just sit and watch the dog play outside, but is actively involved. If you need her to find palace off-leash, she will find it. She will come to your home and she will do overnights. Her home is rather small to have a large pet there but it is full of love and comfort, which is most important. She will check in w/ you everyday, give you updates; never complains (even if your dog helps her to sprain her ankle!) She is trustworthy and I highly recommend her!

I hired Erin to watch my 2 dogs and cat a few months prior to my March vacation. Unfortunately, during that time my senior dog got sick. Erin and I communicated the whole time as I got diagnosis. Erin was prepared and experienced with caring for a diabetic dog. This made me feel comfortable hiring her. Sadly my senior dog got very sick and I had to euthanize her. During that time, prior to my vacation I cannot begin to explain how understanding and gracious Erin was. I went on vacation and Erin made it so easy. She put me at ease with updates daily and was very communicative. I will hire her again because I feel comfortable that I have hired a trustworthy pet loving person.

Judy was wonderful, timely and efficient. This was the first non-family pet sitter we have hired since in Pittsburgh. My dog was happy when we returned and all was well! I am going to refer her to others! Thanks thumbtack!

When our dog reached 7 years of age, we used Tracy to stop by, to walk and let our dog out for bathroom breaks, while we were working. Tracy is very caring, trustworthy and reliable. Tracy would stop by when we were home, and our dog would be excited to see her! I wouldn't hesitate to utilize Tracy's services again.

Darlene is a delight to work with. I was at first nervous about leaving my 2 pups. They are bigger dogs and love attention. But after meeting with her and her correspondence while we were away, all worries melted away. The dogs seem to love her her and she's very good with them. Highly recommended.

I’ve learned more at a couple of classes at Splash n Dash than in all the books I have read and 40 years of dog ownership. Agility training and Flyball have changed my dog Dougal from a frustrated and slightly destructive dog into a very happy and well behaved companion and established a special bond between us.

Fetch Pet Sitting looked after my Bulldog and 2 Kitty Cats while we took a 14 day vacation over the Christmas and New Year Holiday Season. I typically take my dog to a kennel however he is getting up there in years I and would have worried while away. Fetch set up an initial meeting in my home where the 2 sitters came and met my animals and got all the information they needed to take good care of my animals. I provided them with a key each, and on the day of my departure received a text message letting me know they would be there later on that day and to have a great vacation. During my vacation, I received a text from home giving me a quick update on the status. Which allowed me to really relax. Upon my return I found the animals content and happy. The house was left very tidy, the mail had been taken care of, and most of all my pets were all in great shape. In fact - I think they were a little disappointed when we walked through the door rather than the pet sitters - they were completely spoiled while I was away. I fully intend on using Fetch Pet Sitting again and would highly recommend this service to anyone who has pets. They were professional and very thorough, and they obviously have a deep affection for animals as demonstrated by how my pets were upon arrival home. I had the service come to my house 3 times a day - since I was gone for so long. I think the service was good value for money - I would have paid as much to Kennel my Dogs and pay a neighbors kid to look after my cats. Peace of mind - Priceless.

This trainer has a very confident manner and my dog reacted well to him. I am learning a lot about dog behavior and how to read my dog's body language. He has given me great information and tips covering many different areas of my dog's reactions. I would recommend him highly to anyone serious about doing the work to strengthen their bond with their furry friend. Enjoyable too

Jess took great care with my two dogs and cat while we were on vacation. I knew from the moment I met her that the animals would quickly adapt to her caring for them. They instantly fell in love with her wonderful personality and passion for animals. Dependable, caring, and affordable. Highly recommend.

The only service we have had so far is the in home consultation. It was excellent. Extra time spent with us discussing our issues with our dog. We were given suggestions that we have already put into place. Have training scheduled, cant wait to begin. Would definitely recommend.

Andrea is absolutely fabulous! We learned more in an hour and a half with Andrea than 6 weeks of a stock training class at a retail pet store. The one on one attention and completely customized approach was key for our 3 month old German Shepherd puppy. I watched him learn a series of commands in a matter of minutes. I feel armed with the knowledge I need to be able to successfully and effectively train my puppy. Looking forward to our next lesson!
