Erika was so enthusiastic about working with our 100 lb Lab, Hoss. She came very prepared with lots of little reward treats and her trusty clicker. 😀 Hoss needed help because he does not like other dogs and he would get upset and lunge and jump if we even saw a dog behind a fence while we were walking him. We had four sessions. Erika was very realistic, and said the goal was not to make Hoss become best friends with dogs, but to be able to walk him without him pulling me down and dragging me. Hoss loved Erika. Erika trained Hoss (and us) to respond positively to key words and divert his attention away from other dogs that are behind fences or being walked. While Hoss still does not care for other dogs, it is so easier now to walk him around the neighborhood. Hoss fell in love with Erika! 🐶❤️

Andrea was awesome from day one. She took very good care of my pup the 5 days she had him. She even kept me updated during my trip. I would highly recommend her

I would highly recommend Gail for any type of dog obedience or training. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a true dog whisperer. Her guidance in correcting behavior in my adult dog and training lessons with our large puppy was spot on and successful. I continue to go to her for advice when I face challenges and most of the time the problem is with me not the dog because the dog responds to the training when done positively and correctly per her directions.

i use her since 4 years for training my dogs.. it is worth for me to drive from florida to va beach and staying one week there to enjoy and learn a lot.. for me she is the best.... if you have a dog what has problems or if you have a dog for competition... i wish only i would live closer but she stays in contact with me .. i can send video clips from my training here and she helps me to get to the next step in dog training...

I hired Doggie Zen when I went out of town on a trip. This was the first time I had left my babies alone and was a bit unsure at first. During my trip I received updates and pictures which helped a tone. Most recently I had an emergency and need a sister immediate. Doggie Zen went above and beyond helping me and I wouldn't think of using anyone else to care for my dogs!

Megan took care of our two cats while we were on vacation. She was great, providing updates and photos on a regular basis. Our cats were well taken care of and shown attention during each of her visits. She also cleaned the litter box and watered our plants. Can't say enough good things about Megan's dedication and reliability. Thanks, Megan, and we'll see you again next year. The Butchers Virginia beach, VA

My Frenchie Kenzie just went through training with Brandi and I had the best experience and so did my dog! Brandi is very good at what she does and she really is a great "go to" person for help. I haven't had a dog since my teens and she really provided lots of information. Kenzie enjoyed all her classes and really enjoyed Brandi. Brandi really takes the time to work with you and your dog. I felt that she really cares about animals and has a great love for what she does! I will be taking more classes in the future! My dog Kenzie had so much fun going it was a treat for her to go to class!

Cindy has been our pet care provider since 2010. She cares for our two yellow labs three times a day during our times away from home. The proof of a good dog sitter is when you come home and your pets are alert and happy and all is well around the house inside and out. This is something we have come to expect and depend on with Cindy and her crew taking care of our dogs. We would not know what to do without her service nor do we wish to have to find out!

Most people say, "My crazy puppy/dog needs training." The great thing about Off Leash K9 is that they train the person and the dog reaps the benefit of a knowledgable owner. Moose, my high energy Hungarian Vizsla loves working with the trainers as it gives him job to do. He loves working for verbal affirmation vs. treats as do most dogs. Off Leash K9 also delivers on their method and it's instant which goes to show how smart dogs are when paired up with a well 'trained' owner!!

We first contacted Ron because of an aggressive presa canario puppy. Ron was extremely helpful in not only teaching the dog behavior but teaching us how to work with the dog. He is patient and helped me work through my fears of the dog to become a confident dog owner. I am not a first time dog owner and yet I was able to learn many new techniques in helping my dog get over many of her fears. I couldn't recommend Ron enough and have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for his expertise.

I have used Dawn to watch our two dogs for 5 years now and she is wonderful with them. They are excited to see her and I can relax when I have to go out of town. One of my dogs is very anxious and she handles his condition beautifully. They could not be in better hands. She is very reliable and goes above and beyond e.g. meeting us at the Vet to assist when there was an emergency.

Jennifer and Sanity Savers have saved me from having to board my cats in an expensive kennel or pet hotel. Even on short notice she came through. Her daily visits guaranteed the health and well-being of my pets and they seemed to like their playtime with her and her kids. I can't recommend them enough.

I recommend Run Poochie Run for anyone who knows their pets aren't pets but are family. Sterlin was not only professional and knowledgeable but I knew at our first meeting that he was someone I could leave my dog with.

    Verified review

    Jan is an animal lover extraordinaire! She has cared for my dog for many years from pet sitting during the day to overnight stays for weeks at a time. I have to be able to trust someone with my dog, as he has a severe heart condition that requires different medications at different times of the day. He also needs to be kept in a calm environment, as too much excitement causes him to have cardiac "episodes." I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else but Jan because I can count on her to shower my little guy with lots of love and feel confident he is going to receive the extra special care he requires due to his medical condition. I can't say enough nice things about Jan, as her love for animals shines through in everything she does for all of the creatures in her life!

      I have always been a sincere lover of all animals, especially dogs. They have always taken to me extremely well. I seem to be able to talk their language.

          About

          Dogs are life. I will walk, feed, play, and care for dogs of all sizes and breeds. I do not discriminate! My favorite activity is to go to trails and walk with dogs. I have high energy golden retrievers who sleep in bed with me, share my food with me, and give me a reason to live. I am looking to bring more dogs into my life whose owners unfortunately do not have time to walk as much as they would like due to jobs or family concerns.

          Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
