About

The person walking my dog is EXCELLENT!!! Would have given 5 stars, but the communication with Waggy Walkys is unpleasant because the receptionist (two different occasions) is snide and disrespectful. Client is told to communicate via e-mail, but the e-mail address for communication isn't on the client forms. Not a biggy, but client contact should be efficient and painless.

We use them for daily dog walking once per day, five times a week. They've been good about being patient with him, which has been so important because he's a giant breed puppy. They've seen it all with him and have handled it wonderfully. The few times he had stomach issues in his crate, they cleaned it up enough so that it wasn't a disaster to come home to and they allow him to get some energy out in the backyard before attempting to harness him. They've only been late once due to a flat tire and they comped us that day and the following. Each of the walkers has been on time and allow our dog to set the pace of the walk. The owner is great and very responsive to our needs and has big/giant dog experience, which you don't find very often. We would definitely recommend them and have already done so.

Andrew was referred to me, strangely, by my electrician, after he noticed all the trouble I was having with my dog Tetley. Tetley is a 1 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier with infinite amounts of energy. I had previously sent her to overnight "boot camp" for 3 weeks which cost a fortune with little or no results. The commands were very hard for me to remember let alone my 4 young boys. I knew I needed more help. After contacting Andrew, he made a home visit so he could meet Tetley and my family and to discuss what I was hoping to achieve from the training. I chose to have Andrew take Tetley to his home for training as I wasn't sure how dedicated and consistent I could be with 4 boys running around. Tetley stayed with Andrew's family and their 2 dogs - who were great at showing Tetley what the correct behavior should be. After 3 weeks Tetley was a changed dog - in all the best ways. She stopped jumping all over the kids, stopped climbing on the kitchen table and would wait to eat or be let out. It was amazing! Andrew walked my entire family through everything she had learned and explained what we needed to do in order to maintain her progress. My boys are now in charge of feeding her and tell her to sit and wait to eat and she listens! Even Tetley's breeder couldn't believe the change - she immediately asked for Andrew's contact information so she could refer her Virginia puppy owners to him for training. It's been a few months since we completed training and Tetley is doing great. Anytime something new comes up (e.g. we got a rescue dog/dog park issues), Andrew has always been available for questions and advice. I couldn't recommend him more.

About

Angie had helped me walk my dog Rocky for about a year when I lived in Falls Church. Having a 14 year old shih-tzu, I was grateful to have a reliable and caring and dog walker. Angie was always flexible and went above and beyond to try to accommodate my (sometimes hectic) schedule or when I had to leave town. Rocky was in great hands, she gave him extra TLC when his paw was healing from an infection and she was very perceptive and will let you know if Rocky didn't seem himself. Very professional and highly recommend her for any of your pet care needs.

I've used Treasures as my go-to dog walking/pet care service for the better part of 6 months now and it's been fantastic. Nancy is extremely prepared, and is very knowledgeable and accommodating with my dog Luffy's needs and schedule. She is caring and Luffy loves her! It sets my mind at ease when I'm at work, knowing that he has something to look forward to even though I'm gone. I would strongly recommend using Treasures Professional Pet Care to anyone looking for a Pet Care Provider.

Jane took care of our FIVE little fur-bearing family members while we were away for a week. She is by far the best pet-sitter we have ever had! She started with an initial meeting in our home, which was incredibly thorough. It's clear she has a real love for and understanding of dogs, and real skill handling behavioral issues with pets. It's also clear now that we've had her support that the full range of services she offers is delivered with the same gentle, insightful, and steady care that every pet owner wants for their four-legged loved ones. She also retrieved our mail and made sure the house was safe while we were away--a real bonus! Jane provides daily written updates, which were incredibly helpful (she also identified an issue with our bathroom ceiling that would have taken us a few days to notice after we came back). She even found our shy guy, Skinner, every day, even though he is very good at hiding from strangers! We returned home to a happy, snuggly, healthy menagerie that had been expertly cared for. It was such a comfort knowing we had reliable, thoughtful care while we were away. We'll definitely reach out to Jane again the next time we're out of town. Strong endorsements from both of us humans and our furry five-some!

About

MetroPet provides well tailored care for my lovey Mason. I have interacted with a couple of the employees as well as the owner. Mason is very well socialized now and enjoys his pack walks. The most impressive aspect of MetroPet is the open boarding concept.The dogs are able to socialize with one another during their weekend or extended boarding stays. I recommend MetroPet to anyone who asks for a reliable and helpful dog sitting and dog walking service.

I met Sherita Mack doing a re-fi closing, which she was excellent at. After meeting her, I was delighted to find dog-walking is among her many offerings. She and my Murphy became good friends and I felt comfortable with her having access to my house to get him. I found her to be friendly, reliable, and reasonable. She has my highest recommendation!

About

We have been using Barkley Square for daily dog walks for 18 months. They have been great to work with but the best part is our walker. My dogs are crazy about Jeff! He is terrific, spends quality time with them, and let's us know when something is amiss. We have also used them for overnight stays when our regular petsiitters have not been available. An added benefit when our regular walker comes for the overnight! Highly recommend Barkley Square.

We had three sessions with Siree and with each visit our puppy's behavior improved drastically. She has realistic expectations for the dogs, and parents. Most of the time it is a matter of training the dog parent(s) rather than the dog itself. She will give you "homework" to do throughout the week until the next visit and if you commit to doing exactly what she says then you WILL see improvement. Our Boston Terrier was a rambunctious ball of energy and it was difficult to gain control of her at times and now we can enjoy her and can curtail her energy. Throughout the week I got additional suggestions from Siree. If something just flat out wasn't working then I would text her and she would promptly send me new suggestions. What I liked most was that she was a "positive reinforcement" trainer as opposed to a physical form of punishment trainer. The most physical form of training we used was the prong collar for walking on a leash purposes and I would hardly consider that physical. It mimics a mother dogs bite and it quickly gets the attention of your puppy. I would absolutely recommend Siree. Just do the exercises she gives you and stay consistent and you will see improvements.

Zeid has been walking our dog for a few weeks now, and we have been very happy with him. He has been very reliable and extremely helpful. He provides us with regular updates on how our dog is doing, and he has been a great resource when it comes to providing recommendations on things from toys to food to training tips. Zeid is also very flexible and has been known to lengthen the walks when time and weather allow, which makes our dog a happy camper. And the icing on the cake are his rates are reasonable. Seriously, you can't go wrong with Zeid!
