Stephanie was wonderful. She came and stayed at our home for one week, and fed our dog and cat, and did the walking of the dog as indicated and emptying of the cat box as instructed. In addition to doing what she was hired for, for a very affordable price, Stephanie was also very responsive to questions before she began sitting for us, and was available to talk over the phone during the time that we were away. In addition to all of this, she was available for an introductory "meet and greet." We liked her immediately and plan to use her services again in the future!

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.

I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.

Heather takes care of our little 4 year old dog when we have to be away from home for any period of time. Our pet is very spoiled and he loves Heather, so we know she treats him well. It means a lot to us to have someone to trust to care for our pet the same way we do.

Andrea came to my house to train my Dog, Loki. She was excellent! She observed his negative behaviors and gave me easy and EFFECTIVE ways to deflect his attention onto something more positive. We saw Andrea on Friday, 2/02/18 @ 9am and she was here for a hour. I've been using all of the techniques she taught me and although it's only been over 40 hours since she visited, Loki is already showing excellent improvement. She even called me back later Friday afternoon, to say she researched one of his more unusual behaviors and gave she gave me additional instructions for training Loki regarding this specific issue. I highly recommend Andrea from Belton Entertainment, she understands Dogs, what drives them and how to handle/control those behaviors. Good Luck!

I used Canine Dominion to help me with my aggressive dog. My dog would go after other animals and sometimes people. Jauvarie the owner took a special interest in my case and came out to help. When the lessons was over my dog was a completely different dog. Jauvarie's knowledge and skills are amazing. I would definitely reomment him to my friends.

Could not be happier w/ Fabiola. She clearly cares deeply about our four-legged friends and takes a personal interest. We recently had a situation where there was a potential emergency with my dog before she arrived for a walk (ate some potentially toxic). Fortunately it was just a scare and nothing happened, but Fabiola contacted me and we were able to handle it and my dog is doing fine.

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!

I can't believe I haven't written a review before now, but I just logged in for the first time since I used Thumbtack to find someone to take care of my dog three years ago! Sharon is BEYOND FANTASTIC. She started walking my dog three years ago and now takes care of her every time I travel for work. She might love my dog more than I do, and takes excellent care of her. My dog is better behaved after their interactions. She sends me pictures from their adventures, and I always know that when Sharon has Sadie, she is well taken care of, safe and happy. I'm not sure what I would do without her!

We are very happy with Loudoun Pet Care. Tyler came over for a consultation and he listened to what we were looking for in a dog walker and was very professional and nice. Our dog immediately loved him. Every day we get an update with a GPS imagine of where he took our dog walking and the amount of time he walked her. Tyler is very responsive if you need him. Overall we are extremely satisfied with his service and are very thankful to him. I highly recommend Loudoun Pet Care.

My home is just shy of 5000 ft.². I have children, puppy dogs, and my lovely husband. We cleaned daily in this home but I wanted someone to come in and do all the nooks and crannies. My intentions are to do it about every three months. She did such a wonderful job I wasn’t sure if I want to let the rest the family in. She was able to be professional, worked quietly even as I set my kids off for a day trip. She was responsive to everything that I wanted done and got things I didn’t even think about, the value was wonderful, and being retired military punctuality is extremely important to me. Oh I forgot to mention she had absolutely full respect for everything in my home to include taking down my children’s artwork and putting it back up. The last thing you want is something absolutely broken and that did not happen. I have every full intention of continuing! I hope this will give you an idea of what you’re in for if you ever decide to use her services

About

I am the only person working for my company. I am able to spend more time with my clients and I also offer overnight stays at the clients home. I think this is important to the animal to stay in its familiar surroundings. I take my time to get to know my clients. I like to meet them at least 24 hours before I start my services.
