I have been using
for a year and a half. Usually we have 1 mid-day (30min) walk M-F while my wife and I are at work. Sometimes we have as many as 4 walks a day when my wife is out of town because I never know what time I will be released for the day.
In the year and a half, we have had 3 regular dog walkers. They have accommodated every last minute change and made good on every commitment. In this entire time we have only had one "incident" with a dog walker that was covering down for our regular walker who was on vacation. That walker was on her last week and apparently did not care anymore. After the incident was reported, she was immediately terminated and a new walker was assigned to us.
,
and
were all in contact with me as soon as they were alerted of the situation and immediately made the situation right to our satisfaction.
Although
does not provide you with the walker's personal contact information, this is for the benefit and safety of the walkers. Since we have had regular walkers, we have built professional relationships with all of them and exchanged contact information with all of them. Getting text messages with updates of how my babies are doing while I am at work, especially when my wife is out of town, is a great anxiety reliever.
Unlike another reviewer, I have no personal relationships with any of the individuals at
. I found them through a web
and checked online reviews.
They will, upon request, send the walker to your home to meet them before beginning services so you know who it is that will be entering your home and you can see how your dog interacts with the person. Our beagle babies have immediately taken to all three of their regular walkers.
All in all, we are VERY happy with our relationship with this company. We love our current walker,
, and so do our furbabies. They look forward to seeing her and when they see her coming through the door, they go wild just like she is a member of the family.

Sitter came for a meet and
a week before. Was great with the dogs and asked for pertinent info in case of emergency. Sitter came to the house to feed and let our 2 dogs outside, twice on a Saturday and once Sunday morning while we were away. She sent a text on second visit to let us know all went well. We are very pleased with the service, the professionalism and the price. We highly recommend and will definitely use again

Sitting services for about 4 years and I couldn't imagine leaving my dogs in the care of anyone else. It's nice to know that while I'm on vacation I don't have to worry about my dogs, it's important to me to have that peace of mind and that is what you get with

Sitting service. I would recommend them to anyone who needed a pet sitter. Plus

Had two different girls visit. Unable to follow basic directions (like where the dog was allowed in house, inlcuding sending a picture of the dog someplace it should not be). Very condescending attitude from the service.

Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
was an excellent dog walker. She cared immensely for the needs of my pet. I would trust this young woman to continue to do great things in her business. She was prompt, courteous, appeared if there was rain or shine---all the things that I needed in order to care for my pet.
She was fantastic, dependable, all the good things needed from a person who interacts with a member of my family--my dog.

did a wonderful job of taking care of our elderly cat while we were on vacation. Being a vet tech, she was well qualified to do the extra needed care which, for my cat, meant subcutaneous fluids every other day.

I have used this service since ~ January 2014. The owner
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
came to my house and was impressed by how quickly my dogs took to her (I have one who is a formerly abused rescue). She was punctual, informative. I also met one of her walkers, Prudy, who has done the majority of visits. Prudy ( who has not been involved in any of these instances) is a wonderful, kind, conscientious person who my dogs love and has done a wonderful job.
My bad ratings today are because I feel it's important other Angie's list people are aware.
Since January I have had 3 incidents that have occurred, the latest last p.m. and I am no longer going to use their services.

has other (I don't know how many) dog walkers -which I find a bit disconcerting that I do not know who is going to come into my house .
1)I have come home to find my front door unlocked once
2) On the first night of my vacation in April my house alarm was triggered, police called, my friends had to rush to my house to see what happened (all alarm info is provided on lengthy information forms completed prior to any home visits)
3) last night was the final straw -while I was at work, at ~ 8 pm my alarm was triggered, one of my dogs for some reason bolted from my house and ended up in a canal ( he is not a water lover and is 11 years old), the police were called , my friends came to help, and my dog was treading water for over 30 minutes. My friends surprised that he did not
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
. A oat was able to pddle up to him and rescue him from my understanding.
His feet are cut up from trying to get out at some point from
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
beds.
I still do not know exactly what happened because the person who was at my house, the owner,
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, no one has called me to apologize or explain.
I realize accidents happen, but am at a loss as to how this could have happened and am appalled that I was never notified by the sitter/
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
.
Therefore, as much as I love Prudy and her services, ( again she was not involved in any of these incidents, but I have no idea who was -) I will never use this service again and can NOT recommend them to anyone.

is wonderful. She has been taking care of my dogs for about 3 years now. She has taken them to the vet and specialists, as needed. She also caught a serious eye issue with one of them, who would probably have lost her sight, if not treated. In this 3 years, I have lost a dog (old age) and rescued another. I do have 3 dogs, one is 15 1/2; one is 11 and the new rescue is 2 1/2. She has helped me work with & train the new rescue. She is also wonderful with my senior dog! I can't say enough wonderful things about

and her warm caring nature, when it comes to my 4 legged family members! ??????

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
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, the manager, and I would leave the keys to my building/apartment in my car when I left 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
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
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,
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
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.)
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
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

This was an excellent experience with
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
and
Leicester Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
. Their procedure is to 'interview' both the dog and owners to make sure it is a good fit. Everything worked out well. This enabled one of us to go on vacation while the other worked and was out of the home longer than what our dog was use to. Besides walking our dog they also let be known that there were people in the home to discourage anyone from thinking that the home was unoccupied for extended periods. The ladies also leave a journal describing what they did, what food and water was replaced and if the walk was "successful" (and bagged anything so that we can remain friends with our neighbors). This is something that we should have done long ago. The price was very reasonable, and we now have a known proven provider. Besides setting up a schedule, we can also arrange a "we may need you" visit by simply letting them know the day before. The ladies are great. Cannot go wrong with
