  1. #1 River City Dog Excursions

    (5 reviews)

    Justine Z.

    So far River City has been prompt, easy to work with, and takes good care of my puppy. Each day they send me updates and photos of how he did, which is really comforting for a doggy mommy to know their baby is happy and taken care of! They also take good care of my home, the doors are always locked and the alarm is on. I plan to use them indefinitely for this service.defintely worth the hire!

    Tammy W.

    I have enjoyed the help Erin has given me and "Oliver". My little guy is quite the hand full and Erin has been very helpful with advice on how to handle him. She is great at communication. We scheduled classes and she was on time and very professional. He just loves her! Oliver is still quite young but I have seen a great difference in his attention and behavior. Thank you Erin!

    Mian F.

    Sharon has been nothing short of amazing! Our pup is a real puller, and since walking with Sharon he is so much more manageable on walks. She is super responsive, accommodating and communicative, which is a big plus when you are entrusting your baby to someone. I highly recommend Sharon!

    (1 reviews)

    Judith S.

    Dana identified & solved our issue of getting our rescue dog, Tommy, to jump into the back of the SUV in less than 15 min. Amazing! It was a problem that had developed suddenly after one slight car sickness episode. Dana is extremely knowledgeable about dog behavior & training, gave us all sorts of useful tips. We would not hesitate to call her again or recommend her to anyone.

Thumbtack Spotlight

I Am the Pet Man

(1 review)

Pat has over 30 years of experience in handling animals. He attended weekly dog training classes for over 10 years and doesn’t take his responsibilities lightly. He feels accountable for the care, health, and training of each pet that is entrusted to him.

What do you love about your job?

What a deal it is! My friends and I get exercise and fresh air and socialize and practice our manners, while having fun. We really look forward to our walk days. It really is a dog’s life!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I think I've always had a dog in my life. Most recently, in the past 10 years, I've had five wonderful Golden Retrievers. I walked them twice everyday, as well as various neighbors’ dogs. I attribute my good health to the exercise we all got from those walks. I'm semi-retired now, but walking dogs has been so pleasurable that I'm not retiring again and just stick with my friends.
