About

Honestly I wasn't even expecting getting a dog, was at the James river and saw this young man with two very well trained dogs and started talking. He seemed to love what he does so he invited me to the dog motel. How could I refuse, went there and was overwhelmed by the amount of dogs and how well taught they where. Well there was one dog that caught my eye. My dog Mr. Marvin. Well I left feeling. Happy and wanted that dog but didn't know how and or if I could take care of him. Well lo and behold I met his associate walking Marvin at the river. He asked if I wanted to take him home. (I've always wanted a dog to keep up with me on jogs) went back to the motel filled out the paper work and now I have the companion of my life. Well trained and loving. Highly recommended looking for a pet in his establishment.

About

I AM THRILLED TO BE CHOSEN AS THUMBTACK'S BEST OF 2015 RICHMOND PET SITTER! I had no idea they did that. I hope to be able to figure out how to add my award to this page. Thank you to my many faithful clients! I am an avid dog and cat lover and am available to care for your best friend(s), so that you will be able to rest assured that your pal is getting the attention and love he or she deserves. I have had dogs and cats for my entire life, and not only do I volunteer at a local shelter, but I also help care for several feral cat colonies. I own a white boxer, Powhite, a little hound named Spanky, and I have adopted four kitties. Only special people take care of my animals when I am away, and you can be certain that I will treat your animals like I treat mine. I can care for your loved ones by feeding,walking, delivering necessary medications and just spending time with them. I will even be happy to take your dogs to the dog park if you would like! Additionally, I am available to tutor and edit printed work in preparation for publication. If you have an important document to prepare, please have someone, even if you do not choose me, proofread and edit it before you pay to have it printed. You certainly do not want to make the common mistake of sending out a document to potential clients that may possibly contain errors. I am currently working with a writer; I do all of his edits and rewrites before he sends his material to be published. You get the ideas on paper; let me take care of the technical stuff....like dangling modifiers, spelling and usage errors. My most recent success was working with a young lady who was preparing to take her English language Air Traffic Control exam in Thailand. We worked on perfecting her speaking abilities; she was in Virginia for six weeks; we worked for several hours daily. She had previously failed the exam four times. I was thrilled to receive an email from her stating that she not only took the test in Bangkok for a fifth time, but she passed. She is now a certified Air Traffic Controller in her native home, Thailand.

Blane was beyond amazing with our dog, who LOVES her! We could not have been more pleased with her professionalism and dedication. Blane is extremely reliable, trustworthy, and often goes above and beyond! It is such a relief to know that our dog is in such good hands. My husband and I highly recommend Blane!

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!

Janet is a miracle worker. She has helped me (in my home) for 18 months with a pit bull (rescue) that was globally terrified. This was a dog that didn't leave the dressing room for a year. She was able to accomplish things with the dog that I wouldn't have thought possible. (Ex. Getting the dog to walk calmly into the house instead of crashing into the door in her frenzy to get in). Helping me teach my dog to relieve herself outside. She also was able to train dog #2 (who I got to help with the pit bull), to go in a crate - which she had never before used - in just a few minutes. I would give her the highest possible rating....beyond excellent. She is truly outstanding. She is soooo knowledgeable - about why dogs do what they do, what it means, and how to handle it. Yes - she went way above and beyond. Ex: spending 45 minutes on the phone with me one night when I was trying to decide whether or not to keep the dog. Enlisting the help of a vet behavior specialist in Texas in determining what meds would help (which one, dosage, etc.) She was always on time, and her work was of the highest quality. Not a thing went wrong. She could not possibly do better.

I have a rescue dog with separation anxiety that got worse. I hired Sheila to visit with her during the day and now Maysie is so much better. She has much more confidence and doesn't cower when we leave her in the morning.

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!

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!

About

We used the pet au pair for our dogs when we went on vacation this summer and they were amazing !! Our dogs are spoiled brats :) and for them to be able to stay in their house rather than be put in an unfamiliar kennel was very nice. They were happy and treated with the same level of spoiled they're used to :). We got to go on our beach vacation without worrying about them and we will absolutely use the pet au pair again.

I have 5 dogs 3 lhasas, 1 boxer, and 1 shitzu and I know how hard it can be to take your dog for a walk if you dont have time. I am a very responsible person and i love dogs. When your dogs are good I will give them treats and i could try and train them. Also my prices are very cheap.

If you are not able to be home in time to take the dog out for a potty break, if you are going out of town and can't bring the pup along, or if you just don't want to come home to a overly energetic dog, give me a call. Walks are very important to your pup, and along with exercise, socialization is also something that I am able to provide through a walk with multiple dogs or a stroll to the dog park.

About

Hello, my name is Melinda. I love animals, they are my passion. I have been a pet sitter for over 12 years, providing care for 4 legged children in Richmond, Mechanicsville, Ashland and some parts of the southside area. I water plants, bring in mail, and I like to rotate the lights so it looks like someone is home, unless clients have timers for their lights. I walk the dogs, play with the cats, clean litter boxes, and medicate them if needed. If you need to get in touch with me please contact me at my0escape3 at aol com as I can't respond to requests thru this website.

About

WE are Midlothian's premier pet sitting and dog walking company. Our excellence does not come from what we say, but from what we do for your pet and for you while you are away. We do understand that all pets are not the same. Your small shitzu doesn't need to play fetch for hours for them to be tired, and your Australian Sheppard can't be completely exercised with just a short walk. That's why we customize the services that we offer to meet the needs of your pets. Any company can say how excellent their services are, but we would rather show you. But don't take our word for it, please call us and we'll provide you with a list of our satisfied customers who'd love to tell how great our service was for them. Unlike most pet sitting companies, we also offer a couple of care options for small animals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish. We are knowledgeable in running and maintaining a proper nitrogen cycle in your aquarium and how to get the proper temperature balance from your gecko's heat lamp. Leave all of it to us to take care for their specific needs. We will be happy to meet with you and help you find an amazing care option for your animal.
