"For a couple of years Cindy cared for our dear pet cat and we can't speak highly enough of the devoted care and attention provided the animal. During a significant part of the care our pet was quite sick and required special care, including subcutaneous fluids, and Cindy and her colleagues were marvelous in providing this additional care. Further, we particularly liked the way Cindy documented all the visits, feeding and care, which gave us a complete summary of what occurred during our absence. It provided an enormous sense of comfort. We recommend her highly. Michael and Susan

Andrea was very professional and our dog loved her from the moment she walked through the door. She gave us a lot of helpful tips and information on ways to improve his behavior that will be really beneficial!

I could not ask for a better groomer. She opened her door with arms out to greet my yorkies. My oldest Yorkie is a little shy and showed it to Christina. She got down to Lucy's level and spoke to her having Lucy trusting her in minutes. All three Yorkies were a little upset to see us leave but again Christina sat with them talking and petting all three. When we arrived to pick them up she met us at the door with all three yorkies in her arms. They was glad to see us but would run back to her when she spoke to them. They hair cuts was exactly what we asked her to do. They were all so very pretty (and they knew it). I will continue to use Christina for she showed me the love she has for animals and how she could love your animals as if they were her own. Happy Yorkie Owner.

Posh Pet Training has been a life saver in my home! Paula has helped us understand our cat's behavior and we are on our way to quelling the aggressive behavior one of our cats is expressing upon the new kitten. She is kind, funny, and really spends the time needed to get to the root of the issue. I'm so glad I've hired her! She really loves every animal in your home and wants everyone to live in harmony (humans and pets alike!) I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, friendly trainer!

This is the first time I've needed an overnight sitter for my three cats, two of whom are seniors (both 16 years old) with health issues. One of them is losing her eyesight and has started becoming upset and confused during the night, so a once-a-day visit isn't an option anymore when I have to travel. I was nervous about this, both for the animals having a stranger in the house all night, and for the sitter, knowing he or she would be awakened in the night by my confused cat. When I found Stable Hands, I was extremely pleased and happy when they came together to meet me and my babies quickly, and shocked when all three walked right up to both of them. I was immediately impressed that Lara and David both knew exactly how to handle the introductions the cats were making, too. I was comforted that they're licensed, bonded and very experienced. This was a short trip for two nights, and I couldn't be happier or more relieved to now feel confident that whenever I do travel, I have David and Lara to call. The cats were happy and relaxed when I got home, the house was immaculate, and David texted me each night with pictures to show me how well everyone was getting along. (My Maine Coon mix even reclined on the sofa with David -- photo evidence -- which is UNHEARD OF for her.) I couldn't be happier, and highly recommend them.

Ali is absolutely amazing. We called her last minute as we prepared to head out of town for Labor Day. She came over that evening, met with us for an hour and a half and educated us in animal behavior and appropriate food selections. She sent pictures and videos each day she came over and even provided a detailed update regarding our cat's behavior, food consumption and other details. It made us feel so comfortable with our choice. We already have her scheduled to watch Dax in November. We could not be happier and on top of that, she has a GREAT personality. Very sweet and educated about the animal world.

Megan is great! She cared for my two cats while I was on vacation, and proved to be reliable, caring, and trustworthy. She definitely has a way with animals. I adopted both cats from a shelter and they are often skittish around strangers, but they took to her right away. Megan was also kind enough to come out and meet me and the cats a few days prior to the job without asking for payment for the extra visit. She even texted me pictures and status updates while I was gone, to let me know my cats were healthy, happy, and getting plenty of attention. I wasn't expecting that, and it was reassuring to see that they were doing well. I will definitely hire Megan again, as well as recommend her to friends, for future pet-sitting needs.

Had an aggressive border collie that would not come when called. I left my boy with Brandy for 2 weeks and she has taught and given us so much confidence. We are forever changed. Great environment for dogs. Highly recommend Citizen K9.

I have a large number of animals - feral cats, indoor and outdoor cats and dogs with different diets, meds and needs which she willingly and competently accommodated. I am happy to provide a reference to potential customers.

Maria is the most caring, compassionate person that I have ever met. She is real, and loves animals probably more than anyone that I have worked with. She is reliable, a hard worker, and dependable. I would trust her with any of my pets, and would highly recommend her for any pet sit!

Erica provides a wonderful service. She is an animal lover and takes the extra time and effort to make sure that our two "boys" are happy, fed, and content. It is such secure feeling to be able to leave town and know that they will be well-attended to!

I can't even believe how amazing my personal training session went with Heather! I have been so nervous about going through training for my dog just because I wasn't sure what I was getting into and I thought I would feel embarrassed because of his behavior. She not only made me feel comfortable, but my dog as well. I have been trying for ever to get my dog to walk good on a leash and it is not even fun to walk him sometimes. Heather had my dog walking perfectly in a matter of minutes! It was crazy. She also brought one of her dogs because my dog goes crazy on dogs when we are on walks. She had him not even wanting to look at her dog after probably 1-2 minutes! I really did not expect things to go this way. I was expecting her to come here tell me what I was doing wrong and then tell me to work on it for the next week or so and then schedule another appointment for more. NOT at ALL. I just want to walk all day now. After she left we went on a walk and it was amazing. We are going to Pet Smart now to give it a go. Cannot wait to attend one of her group classes. Not to mention her prices are unbeatable. If you really love your dog, like me and my family do, give her a try, it will change your life with your dog. She ABSOLUTELY knows what she is doing.

Caitlin is the best! She is dependable, reliable, caring, and great with animals! She also treats your home as her own. Love the special services she provides. The last time we used her, we were away for about 10 days and we didn't have to worry about our home or animals! We will never use another person/company to watch our home and animals.

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!

Went out of town for 2 weeks. Chris took very good care of my 3 dogs. He sent me videos of them playing all the time. Pictures of them sleeping. And basically let me know how they were doing daily. It's apparent he has a heart for animals. I have and trusted him many times with them and will continue to in the future.
