Amy was a wonderful doggie/house sitter!! She communicated daily and sent me pics of my babies. I highly recommend her and will definitely ask her to care for my fur babies again.
I have been using Julia for almost 3 years. I have five kitties and am very picky when it comes to sitters because many sitters are just dog people and well cats are just different! When I first met Julia and introduced her to everyone I knew she would do great. She's been very accommodating, and although I try to give her as much advance notice as possible, she's really come through the times I've given her short notice. She also has cheerfully obliged to all my weird requests on what I want to make my kitties happy (like put water in the glass in the sink, make sure the box in the den is flipped over, yadda yadda). And she didn't even complain when she had to clean up the mauled bird that had flown down my chimney that one time. Love, love, love her.
I hired Wags to walk my eight month old puppy Tica for two weeks while my boyfriend was out of town and she would be home alone all day. The whole process working with wags, from the first contact through canceling the service, was easy and efficient. I was impressed that Jayce made home visits to each client and that they always provide one on one attention to each pup. Most of all I loved the little notes my dog walker left me every day; it made me feel up to date on what was going on and like Tica was in good hands. We will definitely be in touch with Wags again if we are traveling or need walks in the future.
It is my pleasure to write a review for Nick as well as, give him the highest recommendation as a trainer. Nick has worked with my two German Shepherds for almost a year now. Nick is not only a very competent trainer, he is professional, empathetic and shows how much he cares for your pups overall needs and your needs as an owner. Working with Nick over the past year results in your confidence as an owner, as well as, your dog's confidence. I brought a 12 week old pup and a 4 year old GS to him and the results were two amazing dogs. Not only does your dog get trained, you get trained to be in control of your dog's behavior. My dogs get so excited every time they see NIck...they have definitely bonded with him and trust him. I can't say enough about Nick as a person, trainer and friend. I would never hesitate to give a recommendation in his training abilities. The biggest compliment I can give, is his training abilities are priceless.
Misty has been caring for our senior dogs with special needs for over two years. We never worry about being away because we know they are well cared for. Recently we adopted a shelter pup and immediately hired Misty to help us train her so she could be a happy member of our pack. Misty understands how to train us as owners to better train our pets. If you want someone who cares for your pets as much as you do, hire Misty.
Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.
We were very very happy. She was great at communicating with us. She was thoughtful about coming to our house at different times, so it wasn't obvious that we were out of town. She took great care of our cats and also looked after our home. Also, she has an educational background in animal behavior. We would highly recommend her! We felt very comfortable with our cats and home in her hands.
I hired Felicia to care for my pets and to check on my house while I was out of town. I was gone for several weeks and she did an excellent job while I was away. Before going out of town, she was more than happy to meet with me so she could see what the job would entail. She came across as very professional and capable. While I was gone, she was very reliable and efficient with her duties. Felicia developed a good relationship with my cats and gave them love and attention in my absence. She texted me every day sending pictures of my pets with each message. It was very reassuring to me to have that daily correspondence. I would certainly recommend her to others and I will be asking her to work for me in the future. She is also very likable and has a pleasant personality. Thanks Felicia!
Tina at "A Pet Lover's Sitting Service" has been pet sitting for our dog Cocoa since we moved to the Katy area. We now are able to travel out of town completely at ease knowing that our dog is cared for. If you need a reference and would like to know more specifics about our experience with this service, we can provide more information at any time. My cel is 813-352-1260. Magda Valle Katy - Houston
We used Furry Friend Pet Care services and Jessica was very professional/organized and friendly, we felt comfortable her watching over our dogs, it was our first time ever us using a in home pet sitter, but I'm glad we did, we took a 7 day vacation and throught our vacation, we were updated on our pets status and daily report card including pictures, when we returned our dogs were happy in good condition and health, being that one of our dogs is diabetic and we were left with a thank you card for using their services. So I was very impressed and would definitely used their services again and I highly recommend them. Gary Davalos
Highly recommend Fuzzy Face Pet Sitting! My dogs would agree!
Very reliable! I never worried about my baby girl because she was constantly sending pictures. So glad that we found her and plan to use her anytime we need a dog sitter.
All you have to do is see Karen with animals to know she truly loves them but it is her integrity that sets her apart. I not only trust her with my pets, I'm comfortable with her in my home when I'm away, she even watered my plants Highly recommend Dow wow meow by the lake
Rachel is very professional, prompt, courteous, and loving towards my dogs and cat. She is very reliable & responsible. I highly recommend Rachel for anyone needing a sitter. She is definitely getting my business again!
Gwen has been pet sitting my dog for 9 months. She is reliable, kind, efficient and I feel fine having her in my home while I am away for extended periods of time.
Annie has pet sit for me on a couple of occasions while I was out of town. She is dependable, professional, caring, and my pets love her! She always leaves a detailed note letting me know how everything went. She's my go-to pet sitter, for sure!
Patty more than exceeded our expectations while watching our dog for us. She was so easy to work with, prompt, caring, & went above and beyond to make us feel our dog and home were taken care of. She is very kind and our dog just loves her! She also left a small surprise for my daughters when we got back and they were so happy. Thank you so much for being so amazing to our family and such a pleasure to work with.
Matt was wonderful from the get go. He came and introduced himself before watching our dog shiner. It's always important to feel comfortable with the person watching your home and animals. Matt made the process effortless and without worry. We recommend him to anyone needing pet services.
My mom and I had our 3 dogs watched while we were on a 5-day cruise through Christmas day. She stayed at our home and the dogs were happy, healthy, and well fed when we returned. We communicated daily, and she sent some pictures to keep us updated on how the doggies were doing. In the event we need help with the dogs again, we will absolutely be contacting them!
I wanted to send a quick message to let you know how pleased I was with America C. this past weekend. She really showed great concern and care for my 2 dogs and was very descriptive in her messages to me while I was away on vacation. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I've had. I would really like to keep using her from here on out as the pet sitter for my pets. My dogs really liked her and she just took such good care of them. Please, if it's possible I really want to keep America as my pet sitter from here on out. It was a great experience and I knew from the "get go" upon meeting her, my dogs were in excellent hands with her. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

Are you tired of having your arm pulled out of its socket because of an undisciplined dog? It begs the question, "Who's walking who?" If you reside within 10 miles of the Clear Lake area (Southeast Houston), I can help. If you reside further than 10 miles, I must add a $10 travel fee. I have extensive experience with dogs due to my time as a dog trainer in the military. We took "green" dogs from not knowing even how to sit or heel to fully certified detector dogs that anyone would be proud of. My training model is to train you on how to train your dog. All instruction will be focused on teaching you how to train. The intent is to train you and your dog in your environment. Call for an appointment and leave a message or send an email with your name, number and a brief message regarding age, and breed of your dog. I'll call you back as soon as I can to schedule a time. Initial consultation is free where we will meet for 30 minutes to discuss your unique situation and to formulate a plan. See you soon!
