"I have been using 's services for about a year now. I usually get a response from him in less than 15 minutes to book a visit. He's" available via Phone, email and text. has a key to my place and is very trustworthy. I've booked walks for the same day and others weeks in advance and has NEVER missed a scheduled visit. We occasionally run into at the dog park and gravitates to him. 's rates are reasonable and he bills monthly for convenience. was a shelter dog and came with submissive urination and anxiety. Until he got used to it, it was an issue that handled very professionally. He has never left a mess. is thoughtful too--he opens and closes the shades to let light in for the dog when we forget. He leaves a lamp on when we are going to be home late. He puts the radio on during thunderstorms to help calm down. Positive experience. I'd recommend him to anyone who needs a reliable and trustworthy walker in the south metro.

" is amazing...I cannot say enough positive things about her. You can tell that she is truly a lover of dogs. She is professional and communicates" any changes right away. She is so thoughtful and caring and her entire goal is to make sure you and your pet are happy. There have been many times when I had last minute changes due to work or family and she is completely flexible and fair. I would recommend and her dog walkers to anyone looking for a great dog walking service. It is not easy to trust someone to come into your home when you are not there and take care of your family member...with I am never worried. I completely trust her and adore her and so does my dog.

This is the kind of review you almost don't want to write because you don't want the secret to get out. But, deserves to be successful so here goes...
is just downright awesome. It's clear right away that she l-o-v-e-s dogs. To me, that's the first must-have in a great dog walker. ...More Like many people, I have an erratic schedule, so I don't have the same dog walking needs every day. has been incredibly accommodating and understanding when it comes to scheduling. She's incredibly responsive via text. And after a visit with my pup, she always sends an update. Or "pupdate" rather.
The only thing I wish was different was her pricing (which is totally fair by standards.) I recently moved back to the area from Manhattan where dog walking was cheaper! Guess there's just less demand here. But when all's said and done - 's worth it.

It went as it always goes, flawlessly, with great professionalism and empathy, and with full confidence that my pet was getting the best care available. As always and team left detailed notes with every visit. They even emailed pictures. On this last occassion my pet required a special diet that involved multiple ingredients ...More and some preparation. did not hesitate when I described the process. I couldn't be happier with on every level.

, owner of , is a phenomenon in the pet-service industry. My wife and I have used her pet sitting services for well over a decade and would never look any further for someone to trust with our most precious pooches. I can't count the number of times an unexpected situation will arise and I've ...More had to text saying, "Can you drop by tonight to give the dogs a bathroom break?" and she ALWAYS says "No problem!"
She is an amazing, energetic, warm person, whose dedication to all things pet is evidenced in her widespread involvement in things that involve and benefit companion animals. She sponsors Pet-a-palooza, hosts her own radio show called "Pet Connections," supports multiple animal rescue organizations and more. I've never known anyone more devoted to pets and passionate about her business. All of her employees are well screened and uphold her own level of service.
Our energetic rescues are always thrilled to see and to go on field trips with her and their canine pals. They come home pooped out from having had a ton of fun. No praise is too high for and her Urban Dog staff.

This was the worst experience I've ever had with a service provider of any kind. My building didn't allow extra sets of keys to be made, so we had to work out a system in which I'd leave the extra key to unlock my car with , the manager, and I would leave the keys to my building/apartment in my car when I left ...More and retrieve them from the car when I returned. Definitely a pain, but the company readily agreed to this arrangement.
I'd been out of the state for nearly 24 hours and still hadn't heard any updates about my cats, so I started to get worried. I proceeded to call the company several times over a period of 3 hours with no response back. When finally returned my call, he informed me that he had lost the spare key to my car and was unable to get into my building. So not only were my cats alone and unattended, but my car was now at risk due to a missing key. He ended up having to call a locksmith to open my car so he could get the keys. Throughout this whole process, was incredibly rude and seemed angry with me for the whole situation (he repeated, "I was just doing this car key thing as a favor to you.") He even had the audacity to imply that he should consider charging me for the locksmith fee! Not to mention the fact that my cats were left unattended and without food for close to 48 hours.
When he was finally able to get into the building, feeling a bit skeptical about the service I'd receive and the safety of my cats, I requested daily updates and photos (pretty standard in the catsitting business.) continued to be unresponsive and not send me photos, so I have no way of knowing whether or not my cats were actually visited on most days. When I received the final bill, I was charged for a visit on the first day, even though he was unable to get into the building at this time and thus didn't complete the service on that day.
Please, if you love your pet, do not go with .

We love , and our dog does too. provides regular updates, as well as a summary of our vacation when we return, it's clear that she cares about our dog, and she takes great care of her.
Our dog is elderly, and has been on a decline for a while, so it's great to know that we have a petsitter ...More who knows her, who she trusts, and who we trust to take care of her.

We are so thrilled with Diggers. came and met our dog, Zuzu, when she was 8 weeks old. For the past 8-9 months, has come 2-3 times per week to give her a mid-day walk. My schedule can be a bit chaotic, but has always been very responsive to last minute changes in schedule. Zuzu ...More LOVES ! She is so excited to see him. has also been fabulous about doing training with Zuzu while walking her. He has also been very generous with his time showing us training tips and techniques. He texts me at the end of each walk just to let me know how the walk went. I couldn't be happier. AMAZING service!!! :~)

responded very quickly to my initial email inquiry. She was flexible and worked around our schedules for our initial meeting, and her prices were similar to other pet sitting services (see her website- I think we paid $40/day for 2 visits, and and extra $15 on the holiday). She was professional but not stuffy, and payment was ...More convenient via PayPal at completion of the services. We were gone for a week and came home on Christmas Day, and she came to our home twice a day to clean the litter box and feed/water/play with our kitties. She offered to send a daily update (which we declined), and left us a note to read when we got home about how the week went. Our cats seemed to be well cared for and happy, and their area was neat and tidy. Next time we are out of town for more than a couple of days, we will hire her again. I would definitely recommend her to others.

helps us with mid-day walks for our 2-year-old German . She has been with us since was about a year old. is a fairly big dog (115) and is great with her. also incorporates training into her walks and she usually ...More brings her own two dogs along which gives our great socialization. is fantastic! She ALWAYS gets here when she says she will, she wipes 's paws so that she's not tracking mud or snow into the house, she takes care of our mail for us, and has even helped us monitor the issues we've had with freezing pipes this winter. It's so wonderful to have someone you can trust to be there when you can't.
