If you are looking for someone to help with ANY issue for your dogs- look no further. Sylvia is amazing. We have an older Schnauzer that is just a cranky dog, and doesn't like other dogs, and is over excited with other people. Then we added a large breed puppy who we didn't want to pick up our other dogs bad habits. Sylvia came in and from the first moment she had the issues assessed, and started working with us and the dogs right away. She stayed as long as we had questions, and both my husband looked at each other in amazement. She was a total miracle worker. She was able to get BIG results in that one day. She doesn't tell you she has to come back over and over- she gives you the tools, and sets you up for success. And- anytime you feel like you don't know what to do- you can call or text her and she will be happy to give you more advice over the phone. She truly cares about the families and pets she works with, and I really can't say enough good things about her. As soon as she left that first day, I called all my friends with dogs and told them to call her! She is super responsive, and when I called she had openings that week. (within a day or two). We have also used her as a house/pet sitter while we went on vacation, and will never ask my family to watch the dogs again.... it is Sylvia all the way!!!

Sylvia is a very talented at what she does as a dog trainer she takes the tools she has and makes it so simple for you to understand on what needs to be done to train your 🐕 the very first command she did with my dog on walking next to you and not tugging you like most dogs do and she tells l you why they do that and explained everything she is truly a great dog trainer if you think about getting your dog trained you need to call Sylvia and let her show you how to train your pet she really knows her stuff.

Sylvia did an excellent job watching our dog - going above and beyond normal pet-sitting responsibilities. With her experience and training, you can rest assured she will put your pet's needs first and knows how to handle any situation. She provided loving and protective care for our dog. We would highly recommend her services.

Leashed Seattle has been walking and caring for my two dogs and cat, for several months now. They are completely reliable and provide the most loving care to each of them. The daily walks have elevated the dogs moods and decreased my stress over their inactivity. THANK YOU!!!

Hired Tiffany as a last minute pet sitter to feed, water and clean up after our 4 cats and 11 year old dachshund twice a day. She won the trust of our dog in no time -- no easy feat for this protective mighty mouse! Although we were gone for only 4 days, everything couldn't have turned out better. She kept in touch with us and there were no issues at all upon our return. She even made sure we returned as scheduled so her little wards were once again taken care of. All directions were followed and everything was cleaned and litter removed. I will be very happy to have Tiffany pet sit for us again and whole heartily recommend her.

Tiffany helped us by dog sitting our two elderly dogs when we were out of state because my mother suddenly passed away. A difficult time she made a little easier by letting us know every day that everything was ok at home. The dogs loved her and so did we! She has that knack of connecting with dogs and was very dependable.

Ann was very thoughtful and helpful with taking care of our cat while we were gone for over three weeks. During the initial visit, Ann asked a lot of good questions that we had not considered. She even threw out the banana we forgot on our table after we left (which would have been disgusting to come back to). Upon returning, the cat was healthy and excited to see us again, so she had not skipped a beat. The only concern was that the water bowl was pretty dirty when we got back. Our cat is known to make her bowls especially dirty, so I cannot say for sure how long it had been that way since it was over a day between Ann's last visit and our return.

We needed a petsitter to stay with our dogs and cat for a long weekend and Ann was recommended by another sitter. She responded quickly to my email. We were able to meet the next week and we hired her. She took wonderful care of our pets and we appreciated the daily updates with photos. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

In this case, the pet sitting was in the form of companionship for a small free-range parrot and care for two overweight guinea pigs during a family trip abroad. Everyone appears to have emerged in fine shape without any glitches.

How can you say anything bad about a service that makes it so easy on you? The fact is, you can’t. They were punctual. Josie put us and Buddy at ease right away. He was excited to meet her and didn’t look back once as he was to busy checking out what was happening and listening to her talk. His tail wagging fifty miles a minute. Buddy is a good judge of character, he usually likes people, but not always. He came back two hours later (they called to let us know when they left). He smelled and felt really clean. He was worn out, but it was a contented tired. He is 10 and I know standing for the washing and such was probably tiring. Was everything perfect? No, but Josie was honest and upfront about it. I’m talking about his nails. She wasn’t able to get each and everyone of them clipped perfectly. But that was expected as Buddy is pretty fussy when it comes to that. She stated it would take a few times to get them cut down without injury. We expected that and wanted her to go slowly as we hadn’t been able to be consistent with that ourselves and they were pretty long. The brush out was done and his shedding has been greatly reduced. 10 days later and he still smells good and his fur still feels soft. The service was affordable and we have him another appointment in 8 weeks. We are so thankful for a service like this. The cost is around the same as us taking him ourselves. Frankly I think it’s even better as he gets to go for a ride, which he loves, and make a new friend to boot. It has become to hard for his to do these things ourselves and a hardship to get him to and from the groomers. Book an appointment and try out the service, you won’t be sorry! The fact that we didn’t have to stress about other animals being around was also a huge bonus! Our two cats giving Buddy a paw up for smelling and looking good.

I would highly recommend Laura for dog walking and dog sitting services. She goes far above and beyond with what she does and really cares about your pets. The first time she dog sat for us our flight was delayed and extra day and she was willing to stay and take care of them since we didn't have any family in the area to help us out. She had also been scheduled to dog sit for us when I was going to have a planned C-section and I ended up having an unplanned one a week earlier she was out of town for business. When I texted her to see if she was in town and available she was on her way back from out-of-town business trip and she came directly from the airport without going home to go stay with our dogs for the night. She also had a genuine interest in us and our family and asked how her baby and I were doing. She provides great communication as she sits for your pets and I trust her 100% caring for our home and our 2 dogs. Since we had just relocated to the area and didn't know anybody out here to help us out this past year so lucky to find her. She drives from Seattle to Renton to dog sit at our house and only wished she lived closer to help us out for daytime dog walks. I would highly recommend hiring her! Jessica

Laura is phenomenal. We had her house/pet sit for our two Boston Terriers who are both deaf. The older one needs eye meds every 3-4 hrs. We were gone for 11 days and not accessible unless a dire emergency. Laura sent regular emails keeping us updated on what they were doing and how things were going. She fully understood our anxiety in leaving them and did an outstanding job reassuring us. She left the house looking great and even had a pot of homemade soup waiting for us on our exhausting return in the middle of the night. She is such a caring and conscientious caregiver. She even gave us TWO meet and greet appointments prior. We highly recommend her services. She will be our "baby" sitter, for certain, in the future! Bob & Cindy and Bonnie & Gracie

Laura is extremely professional, very responsive, kind and loving to the animals she is caring for and most of all trustworthy. Laura ensured that she completely understood what was to be required to take care of my pet and did exactly what was requested. It was very comforting to know that my pet was being cared for exactly as needed while I was away. It was a pleasure to work with Laura and to get to know her. I would definitely recommend Laura as a Pet Sitter/Caretaker.

Cary and Thomas are wonderful dog sitters! We have two small dogs, Mikey and Finnigan. It was our first time ever leaving Mikey with a sitter, second time leaving Finnigan. I was anxious about leaving them and finding a sitter who would understand Finnigan's leash pulling and Mikey's allergy needs, but Cary's dog sitting was the perfect fit. They're experienced sitters, have dogs of their own (they're very careful with introductions, introducing each dog one by one in a supervised manner), and even have a backyard that's fully dog friendly! They worked with us to set up a meet and greet the week before our dogs needed to stay and were very open to questions. Additionally, after their stay and once the dogs were back home with us, Cary texted the next day to make sure Mikey and Finnigan were doing ok, which we appreciated! We're so happy to have found dog sitters in the area we can trust and recommend Cary and Thomas to anyone looking for caring, experienced, communicative sitters to put your mind at ease while you can't be with your pup. :) thank you both!!

Cary treated our dog (Sookie) as if she was one of her own. We were a little worried because Sookie isn't away from us very much. Cary kept us updated everyday and because of Cary's care, Sookie had a great time. We will be using Cary's In-Home Dog Sitting service again real soon.

Antigone is by far the best pet sitter/walk around. I don't even think of her that way. She's like having a member of your family that loves your pets in the same way you do. I was so nervous the first time we boarded with her. But she texted me pictures and had updates about them when I got home. I never have worried since, and nobody else should be either. Our dogs and cats love her, and the dogs think she is just an extension of their family. Thank you Antigone.. I don't know what I would do without you. Thanks for serving Mill Creek!

Menagerie Maid is flexible, helpful, understanding, willing, and creative in how she provides her service. She has been my dog walker (and more) for many years. She has given unique care and love to all my dogs, no matter what issues they were having. Now that we are down to one challenging dog she is his best friend and provides him with lots of opportunities for exercise and socialization. If it wasn't for her service his life would be very sad and lonely. I used another service in the past when she was on vacation and didn't have staff to cover. Though they were nice, they did not give my dogs the same kind of time and care provided by Menagerie Maid. Now that she has the staff to cover, we have not had to go back! Her helper is also a very dear friend to our dog. We are very lucky to have Menagerie Maid in our lives!

Colleen is fabulous! She's totally reliable and my dogs love her and her assistant. The dogs get well walked and come back tired. My funny little Roxie dog won't poop on a leash, so when I won't be home until late, Colleen takes her to the back yard and lets her do her business there. I do not give my house keys to anyone else, but I totally trust her with the keys and the dogs.

Kelley takes the time to 'get' the personality of your pet and gives consistent feedback. I highly recommend her services.

Denise at Bark 'n Ride has been caring for my two tweenie dachshunds for two years. We started out with training consultation for Ginger as a puppy and have used her daycare and boarding services since. Denise loves dogs, she cares deeply about their well being and sincerely wants to help her clients in providing the best guidance and care for their furry family members. She is knowledgeable and an excellent trainer. Whether for one day or for several, I trust leaving my dogs at Bark 'n Ride more than with any other provider we have tried in the area. Ginger and Harry love Denise and being with the Bark 'n Ride pack. Since starting weekly daycare last year, they have become more obedient and socialized. This is important especially for Harry who was rescued and needed a little help when it came to meeting other dogs.

I work with Denise at Bark & Ride, I also board my 2 dogs with her when I am out of town. My dogs & all the dogs she cares for LOVE her, I trust her implicitly with my dogs, she has double gates at the entrance, a very large play yard (she picks up poop several times a day), the dogs are brought inside a smaller yard next to the house at night, where they can go inside the heated sleeping quarters if they choose. I pick up & take 10 -12 of her dogs to the dog park twice a week, I work closely with all of her clients & they trust her absolutely. The only negative feedback I have ever heard was from a helper that was let go.

Best Dog Services EVER. Denise will tell you what your dog needs, not necessarily what you want to hear. Emily is a HIGHLY ACTIVE, INDEPENDENT dog that Denise and I worked with for 3 years. 3 years (years!) to run off that energy and keep her safe at the same time. Giving Emily the structure she needed to RUN and RUN and RUN with other dogs without harm. Denise never gave up on Emily the Runner and now she is her amazing self at 6 yrs old. Healthy, happy, and still running (a little slower now ;-)

I originally hired them to start providing dog walks during the week when I cant work from home. The next day after my meet and greet I had an emergency and was called out of town but since my walker had just met Corina I was hesitant to push that on her as well. The company informed me she was able to provide overnight sitting in my home for 5 days. I'm a crazy dog mom and I was a nervous wreck until my husband reminded me we could check on her via our cameras (These cameras are hidden and our sitter was unaware of them). I was pleasantly surprised at the love shown to my dog it was above and beyond what we could have hoped for. My dog usually goes on a night walk with the neighbors dog and my sitter was more than happy to walk them together to keep their routine up. She also received extra walks, played fetch in the backyard, let the neighbors dog come over, and spent extra time at the house during the day. Corina usually exhibits some form of behavioral issues when we go away furniture chewing, door scratching, etc. She didn't destroy anything last week even when the sitter was away during the day. I cant wait for Corina to start her weekly walks and I'm glad we found Paws and Plums. Thank you Ghislaine!

Just like most of you reading this comment I was tired of having to put my two cats in boarding when I travel. I found P&P from my leasing office who said they were currently the go to pet sitters for our building. They were extremely professional, organized, and obviously love cats. Bingo and Price were totally relaxed upon my return unlike the normal I hate you showdown we usually have after boarding at the vet. I also loved the fact that they took the trash out and cleaned extremely well around the litterbox. I highly recommended their services.

She has a great personality, my dog and her hit it off immediately, and she asked us questions we hadn't even thought of. I was very impressed with her references and her past clients I chatted with as well. Thank you Paws and Plums for helping us find someone to get Lucy out of the house.
