has been just wonderful. I have used her since my puppy was 2 months old. I have a unique schedule, and she has always been flexible with" the dates and times that I need her. I know that my puppy is in great hands, I do not worry one bit. I always get a text after she is done, and an update. I would highly recommend her services.

"
is extremely knowledgeable and professional about working with dogs of all ages, sizes and breeds (and their people!). She keeps up to date" on her profession by frequently taking courses and training herself on best methods for training dogs. I have a rambunctious
Springer Spaniel puppy that she has been helping me with. Her patience is extraordinary! She sets a really good example so that I too remained calm in my training methods. Her demeanor is calm and quiet.
asked me a lot of questions to get a sense of the dog and what behaviors I would like to work on with her training. She is very flexible with her suggestions, so that the exercises she teaches the owner to do with the dog will be a good fit
what the owner will feel comfortable with. As
is evaluating the temperament and behavior of your dog, she explains to the owner what she is seeing, and she picks up on the smallest details of the dog's behavior. You can tell
really loves dogs. My dog responds very positively to
and her methods. The training sessions are productive and enjoyable for all.

She has been really good and really flexible with her schedule. What is really nice is that every day they will send a picture of your dog. She has gone above and beyond to help me with my dog.

First let me be clear that
Sarasota Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
' walkers are beyond criticism. Our regular walkers were just lovely people and we appreciated their work immensely; they looked after our dog two days per week (and early on, made two visits on those days) from roughly 10 weeks to just shy of six months. I couldn't have asked for better people to care for our dog, and our webcam was proof of their kindness, trustworthiness, punctuality and proficiency.
Unfortunately, an unannounced change made by the company in early January of this year came to my attention when new walkers-in-training showed up at a time I thought was quite late. Upon checking the online schedule, I discovered that the window for arrival of walkers had been changed from 11:30a-12:30p to 11:45a-1:15p, which is quite a different wait for a pup under six months of age considering we leave home at 8am.
This change closely followed a day in which I was informed after I'd left for work that a normally scheduled half-hour visit would be cut short to just 15 minutes due to poor weather. No credit to my account was offered or given, though it bears mentioning that if the customer makes a change for the following week any time after Thursday, the company policy is to charge you half of that day's fees. In other words, if I find out on Friday I'm going to be working from home next Thursday and won't need a walk, I still get charged half of the fee for that visit.
In any case, when I contacted the company about the change to the scheduled walk, there was no expressed concern that they'd done so without making effort to communicate that to us--the customer--ahead of time. It was simply stated as the way things would be. When I noted (politely; I'm happy to post my part of the exchange if anyone is curious) that we would simply liked to have known about and discussed the change, the response conveyed a
Sarasota Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
of "this is our new schedule, and your new time of walks; if you don't like it, you can find another walker" in so many words, however politely.
So find another walker we did. Though I'm not bargain hunting, they are much less expensive (by 30% for a half-hour walk), yet far more responsive. Changes can be made the day of the walk without any additional fees. Federal "snow days" don't mean a canceled walk (great for those of us who don't operate on the government's schedule). Finally--and most importantly--the owner visited with us in our home for at least an hour to discuss our dog and our needs, how we were training the dog, etc. We talked about changes down the road, to be discussed in advance, namely a move to a two-hour walk window when the pup is ready for that change, but again... after a discussion with us.
In the weeks since we switched to the new provider, I can't say the quality of walks has improved or diminished... they are every bit as good as

, and that is a huge compliment. However, the scheduling/administrative side of
Sarasota Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
could use some work in my opinion. Your mileage may vary.
