“Cheryl has been super great with our puppy, Noxie! Nox is really timid with people but got along really well with Cheryl, she even perked up and wagged her tail the second time. Cheryl is very accommodating of our schedules and has also personally reached out to me to confirm things when my app was having trouble notifying me. She writes really long and detailed reports after each walk and attaches pictures too. We highly recommend Cheryl for dog walking your fur baby!”
“Tharan has been so good with Zena! It was pouring down rain and he still took her the full hour and even took extra photos to send me. He’s super sweet & I can tell he loves dogs. Communication is great & his availability is awesome. I can’t wait for Zena’s walk dates with him again.”
“Looked after Baz when he had an upset tummy. Thankyou!”
“Charlotte is among the very few people I trust with my kitten. She shows amazing character and truly cares about all animals. Charlotte has had a vast amount of experience working with animals seeing as she owns many pets of her own and is employed at a K-9 resort and athletic club. passion, integrity and selfless is how I would describe Charlotte.”
“Ryan was a godsend! available all day last-minute on Thanksgiving when everyone else was booked or not accepting a solo-doggie who is not social and therefore needs one-on-one. Ryan was totally flexible, accommodating and very professional in regards to anticipating and prepping for all of Sadie's needs. i would highly recommend Ryan and will definitely call him again when next in Santa Barbara! Sadie had a wonderful 3 hour romp at one beach and later the same day another 90 mins at another beach! Needless to say a tired dog is a happy dog and she slept well that night after a full body massage for well-exercised muscles! Ryan is very caring and enthusiastic regarding animal care for cats and dogs as well as considerate, polite and accommodating towards me - yes, a self professed people-pleaser! Thank you Ryan!”

“Sarah is easy going and flexible, yet clearly knows dogs and their habits. She just wants to be with dogs, no drama, relaxed communication. Easy to schedule with, on time, keeps her word. I used three times in one week because my dog took to her immediately!”
“In one word: Lisa was FABULOUS!!! I couldn't be happier or more impressed with the thoughtful and loving care my fur baby received from Lisa! Lisa took time to learn about my dog's preferences and quirks, took her to her favorite park, sent lots of pictures and updates, and was generally a delight to work with - she clearly has a big heart. Will absolutely book again!”
“Jessie went above and beyond with our golden retriever. Sent a lot of updates and he had the best time. Would definitely recommend her services”
“Kathy is great dog walker who is dependable and trustworthy. Prior to her first walk she came over to get to know our pup and familiarize herself with our training tool. She communicates quickly and we have peace of mind knowing she is taking care of our dog. We recommend her services (:”
“Ari came to our rescue when we were in a bind and managed our 3 energy-filled doggies. He provided excellent communication and got them out for regular exercise.”
“Aaron has always been wonderful with our two dogs. We've been able to trust him to go in and out of our house while my wife and I are away for work. On a recent vacation, Aaron volunteered to also watch over our houseplants and put out the bins. Going away for the day, week, or month has been much more stress-free knowing that our pets and house are in the hands of somebody who communicates well and is very trustworthy.”
“Ashtyn is the best! She is so loving and great with dogs! She is so thoughtful and responsible. She always asks if we need anything else done, like putting trash cans back inside or picking up mail, etc. She keeps our mini schnauzer, Stewie, busy with lots of playing when she comes over. I would trust her over anyone else for any pet sitting needs!”

“All of my dogs LOVE Anny! Even our senior dog makes his way from under the bed when he hears her come in and he doesn't usually come out for anything except food! You can tell just how much she cares for animals and her photos are amazing! It makes my day to see the huge smiles on the dog's faces in her beautiful photos that she send me. Anny is top notch and I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
