Hattie went above and beyond! Dog of elderly woman hadn't been groomed or seen by vet in probably years. Hattie was originally going to groom in the home, but I was worried about anxiety of owner, so she agreed to pick up dog, groom in her salon and bring back. She didn't ask for any increase in price. Dog had swelling, long nails, irritation in sensitive areas. The grooming took much longer than anticipated. I was the one who suggested a higher price -- only seemed fair for all the time she put into making the dog handsome as he can be. Highly recommend her!
This is my first time ever using Thumbtack and I was a little bit skeptical, but I went ahead and booked Stef's cat sitting service as her reviews seem to be very good. At first, I booked basic cat visiting service. However, just the day before the trip, my cat got an abscess burst. I had to take her to the vet and requested some extra services from Stef, but she was very accommodating. My cat seems very happy when I'm back home, food, water and litter pan well taken care of. Stef sent me messages everyday to update me on my cat's condition. Plus points in Stef's services: responsiveness and quality. She did everything to make sure my requests are fulfilled. I can't thank her enough for putting my mind at ease while being away and my cat was sick. Overall five star service!
Almost as soon as I posted on Thumbtack, she responded. I called her and we talked about the dog, my concerns, special needs, etc. She told me she had 12 years experience as a Vet Tech and at least 7 years of grooming. She was very knowledgeable and put me at ease. We set up an appointment for 4 days later. She was on time, worked well with my dog, and she looked good afterward. The most important is that my dog was not upset and seemed happy. The cost was the same price that I had been paying for mobile grooming. I set up appointments for a year and did that per email with a prompt reply. I am very happy with Danielle.
Sam was my much loved Maine Coon cross who outlived his kidneys. Vet said he was not in pain, so I extended his life almost a year by hand-feeding him several times daily (& nightly) and administering saline fluid subcutaneously every 3-4 days. Dates for a Central American vacation planned with college friends caught up with us while he was still enjoying all that attention, and I was frantic to find someone who could manage his care while we were away. Dee was wonderful with Sam! She took excellent care of him. I recommend her heartily for any pet, but especially one needing special medical care.
Nikki took care of my 2 senior dogs for a week, coming to my home 4 times a day, often staying a long while. She followed every item regarding their food, medicine, and care PERFECTLY. Her attention to detail and LOVE of dogs is OUTSTANDING. She is a highly trained vet tech as well, which put my mind at ease regarding any situation that could have arisen. I highly recommend Zorger's Pet Care.
Oh my goodness, Jenny was the best, and affordable compared to DC area dog sitters. She had Pet Vet Background, so she's on top of everything, especially if your dog has meds. Sounds as if she was totally on top of walks and such. I will be using her again for our dog Daisy, hoping she doesn't become super popular from this positive review and others' reviews. I asked her if she would want to.watch my Teens too! (ha ha)
Superb group of caring professionals! Run My Dog has helped me with everything from feeding my cat while I was gone to assisting me with my dog after an emergency vet visit. Robbyn and her team are very accommodating and just seem to really enjoy being with the animals. They give great updates after the walk (sometimes I even get pictures), use positive reinforcement and will even pay close attention to any special training techniques I may be using. My Truman can be quite hyper but I always get positive feedback, and, I feel like special attention is paid to his needs. They are flexible, kind and caring and would recommend Run My Dog to anyone needing this kind of service.
Kelly is amazing! My dog does not like to be groomed and prior to finding Kelly our only option was to fully sedate her and shave her once a year. I explained this to Kelly and asked that she come to meet my dog. She stopped by and my dog quickly came up to her and let Kelly pet her and even licked her a few times. Kelly was able to bathe, dry, and give her the cutest cut. I was astonished that she was able to groom my dog. I thought my only resort to grooming my dog was to take her to the vet to be sedated. Not anymore! Kelly is a miracle worker and she is officially the only person who will groom my dog.
My two kitties were well taken care of during my vacation. One was a bit sick and under the weather when I had to depart, but since Shatiya is a vet tech I felt comfortable leaving him in her care. She sent daily updates and usually included photos as well. A few small things were overlooked, like leaving my A/C on full blast when no one was home, but overall a very good experience!
Really pleasant and profession people.Sara is very qualified being a vet tech and I sensed she had good rapport with my cat Fletcher.I will definely call them again when I travel next.
Your Virginia Pets is the best sitting/walking service ever. They responsibly walk and play with our dogs. They even made emergency vet visits for us when we were out of town and one of our dogs developed pancreatitis (and cleaned her and her crate up with no complaints). Every person sitting and walking for Joe is a dog lover and we trust each of them to take care of our dogs. Can't recommend highly enough.
I have my cat Caiti that I bring to Belquest any time I go out of town. I trust the employees there that they will do an incredible job of looking after my cat and seeing to all her needs. Their care for my pet is absolutely amazing and whenever I bump into the staff in public they always ask how she is doing. I could not have been more blessed to find a more caring, compassionate and professional organization then Belquest Kennels. I would recommend them to anyone I know.
Mariel was caring and I loved the way my dogs smelled after their bath :-) Their nails were trimmed and it was a great experience for them since they did not have to sit in a crate for several hours at the vet.
Hillary did well especially with my cats' needs. She is perfect for this job considering her past experience as a vet tech. Thank you!
Michelle is very patient and very knowledgeable and there to help you learn! The class is fun, and great bonding time for you and your dog. She is also great about having families attend the classes together so everyone "speaks the same language." I work with rescue dogs and Michelle answered lots of questions that helped me deal with some of the strange behaviors we see. Highly recommended!
Karen has taken care of our 2 cats and one dog for 1 1/2 years. She really cares about them. They really like her. She is reliable, loving and thinks of everything. One of my cats was sick while we were away, and she took her to the vet and called us everyday. Cornflakes was fine and we were happy. I would recommend her.
Jake took care of our cats for a week while we were on vacation and did a great job. He was very thorough before we left, coming over to meet the animals, see where everything was located, including the cat crates were and the vet in case of an emergency. He took time to get acquainted with the animals ahead of time; when we were gone, he emailed us regularly to let us know how the cats were doing. Great service, conscientious, excellent quality work, and the cats loved him.
Feeling most appreciative and pleased ! Amy kindly arranged for her associate to come to our place and help clip dear old, big boy kitty's nails (so don't have to drag him to vet just for this or keep burdening friends to help). We had our first session today, and Amy's associate Divya was great ! Flexible, professional, prompt, clearly experienced w/ cats, affectionate w/ my kitty; calm/composed and therefore calming for my cat (and me), very personable and pleasant. I'm grateful to her-- and to Amy -- and look forward to working w/ them again (and again). =^..^=
The staff at Reserved Barking are the best. They are very gentle and caring with the dogs. The dogs interact with each other all day and are not penned up. The fact that the dogs go outside for breaks is important. I have been to other facilities and they are not as clean and nice as Reserved Barking. Pineapple somehow knows when he is going to dogcare; he gets very excited and stands next to the car waiting. Pineapple is always very tired after a day at Reserved Barking. Also they have grooming services. Pineapple is a Maltese and we receive many compliments on his cut, even the Vet called me after a visit to inquire where I had him groomed because she received so many questions.
