Our beagle-mix
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
has been in
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
's playgroup program for nearly a year. When we approached Sheileen about
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, our concerns extended beyond the normal need for socialization and exercise.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
was eight months old and suddenly exhibiting apprehension and fear when approached by dogs or humans - even tucking her tail and shivering during interactions with dominant dogs. Her time in playgroup has not only brought her out of her shell, but also given her the ability to enjoy socializing as well as hold her own under any circumstance. When
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
hears the back door open, she races to
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
Sheileen and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, and doesn’t look back. It’s the happiest part of her day. We also leverage Sheileen and her team when traveling and have events at our house. She even babysat
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
and kept her grooming appointment at a moments notice, when I went into labor two weeks early. Having her in our’s and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
’s life has provided us with incredible piece of mind, and we’re grateful for everything she does. As
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
’s parents, we truly feel that entering her in

’s program has been the best decision we’ve made for her.

Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
has been a Godsend. I have been using him regularly since May of this year. He has been willing to do anything I've asked of him. He makes sure
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
is well fed, litter box cleaned and administers his shots, but he also brushes him and let's him spends some time outside.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
is extremely conscientious. He is sure to let me know if we're running low on any of the needed supplies like
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
syringes food or insulin.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
has also been extremely flexible. My schedule is constantly changing and he has been able to accommodate me, even on short notice. I completely trust
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
with the loving care of my kitty
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked

We have been calling
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
@ House & Pet Watchers for years. I am embarrassed I haven't submitted a review before now.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
is the most dependable vendor I have ever experienced. We have used her company multiple times throughout the years to cover our family trips - from as little as a weekend getaway to a full-blown family 2-week vacation. Sometimes we are able to contact her in advance, sometime we are forced to contact her last-minute (just recently my grandmother was sent to the hospital). Every time
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
has accommodated us, took care of our pets, checked the
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
brought in our mail. We trust her to the point of assigning her a permanent house key - which she keeps clearly labeled in a basket along with all of her other trusting clients.
Value: Whether you have 1 pet, or multiple (like us) you pay the same single trip fee. $15 per trip. Cheaper than kenneling your pets, and your house gets checked multiple times per day, and mail brought in. She is also very flexible with instructions, like leaving lights on and allowing your cat out once a day, between visits.
If you want your
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
pets well taken care of while you are away, call House & Pet Watchers. Ask for
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
.
She doesn't answer her line on initial call in order to allow you to leave exact - recorded - instructions on voice mail that may be referred to and played back.

I can unhesitatingly recommend
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
. Outstanding professionals who really know pups.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
walks our dog, and she not only loves on and exercises our pup (the easy part), she teaches/reinforces good manners each time. Always on time, completely reliable, easy to schedule. Used 3 other services at various times for our recently-deceased dog.....tried
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
with our new puppy, and they won us over completely.

1Marcia is a very kind, responsive business owner who provides a great and much needed service: pet care! I found her quite by accident and have referred many people to her. She is trustworthy and dependable. And her rates are reasonable.

Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
(
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
) offers a service that is second to none and has been our trusted dog walker for 4 years.
Her caring nature and genuine love of dogs is evident with the reaction our boys (dogs) have when she enters our home. Our Weimaraner and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
both have very unique personalities that
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
has easily identified and works with on each and every walk. She goes the extra mile by providing us with a log entry on the walks, the dogs behavior and what was produced ;-)
I would be happy to discuss any part of this review with anyone who wants to know what a phenomenal dog walking service is like and should be like for them.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
can also provide information on dog minding services.

When I contacted to inquire about training
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and really pursued my business. However once the meet and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
was completed and I purchased a "puppy package" it was very difficult to schedule a training time, We would schedule a time and then she would cancel at the last minute, or arrive very late. The package consisted of 5+ training sessions with the promise she would stick with us until the puppy was trained.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
did work our puppy on 2 occasions and seemed to make some progress, however cancelation, after cancelation and rushing home with my preschooler and infant to meet with a trainer that did not arrive was too much and we agreed to terminate our relationship. A refund of $120 was agreed upon. However after months of phone, texting and email I finally received a return of $60. I tried again for several more months but never received any additional funds.

Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
is a gem. She truly has a heart for animals, and our dog was no exception. She took great care of our Labrador while we were away. She fed him and walked him, brushed him and played with him daily. She was trustworthy in our home as well. Our dog had never stayed at home for serveral days without us before and he was in fine shape both physically and mentally when we returned home. We defnitely recommend
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
for her exceptional level of responsbility and her caring nature.

Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
(the owner) and her employees have done an excellent job! We have been customers for months, and wouldn't think of going to anyone else. We schedule multiple 30-minute runs a week and our dog absolutely loves it!
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
does a really good job of scheduling a consistent runner, so that your dog gets to know him or her. It's also nice to know that there isn't a different person coming in and out of our house everyday.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
and the regular runner get to know your dog and are always accommodating if your dog has any special needs or requests. We also love the daily reports - the runner leaves a little note to let you know how your dog did on the run each day.
Overall, I cannot say enough good things about
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
does a great job; she is very responsive, flexible when scheduling changes come up, and most importantly she is someone we can trust with our dog and our home.

On 8/10/14, I waited patiently to meet
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
for our scheduled appointment at 4pm. 4pm came and passed. At 4:30pm, I checked my email to see if they were still coming as I did not receive any phone call from them at all. I had an email from
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
that they would be coming around 4:30pm after they took care of other clients. I do not believe that they actually arrived here until 5pm, an hour after our original scheduled appointment. It would have been nice to have received a phone call from them to let me know they were running late, instead of my having to check my email. While waiting for them, it made me wonder if this was the way it was going to be if I hired them to sit for me, with them running late to take care of my animals. When they arrived at my house, they met my animals and I showed them the routine. When we went up to one of my horse barns, I showed them how I cleaned one stall, but
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, who told me he was going to be the " backup" for
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
stated that it seemed pretty easy and never seemed to have any interest in going to my other horse barn to meet the other horses or see what their routine was. I have a petsitter handbook that I had already showed them which contains written information and details about my animals and their feeding schedule.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
would ask me if it was written down, with regard to the things I was trying to show them in person while up at my one horse barn. The problem with this is that the situation with the other horse barn is different, with one horse getting a different type of horse feed, and another horse there being more difficult with attitude at times. In fact, her ears were laid back over the fence in meeting
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
. They never went into the pasture to meet this horse, nor bothered going to the other horse barn.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
kept saying that he had to give a dog its medication by 6:30pm, which provided me less time to go over things with him with my animals. I had never met, nor used this company before. Everything was quick and hurried.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
asked me if I was going to leave my keys to my truck and horse trailer for them at my house, with which I said "No." He then rolled his eyes at me and told me sarcastically, "It's YOUR horses." He thought he was going to have to drive my horses to the vet if there were a problem with them. I told him that my vet comes here if there's any problems. I then asked
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
if he knows how to drive a truck and horse trailer and he indicated "No." I then asked
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
if she knew how to drive a truck and horse trailer and she stated she never drove a truck and horse trailer before. If you do not know how to drive a truck and horse trailer, much less know how to load a horse onto a trailer, this can be an accident waiting to happen. When we returned to the house,
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
raised the previously agreed to rate already discussed beforehand with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
by $40, when during my first conversation with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
, he told me it was up to
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
since she was the person that was going to sit for me. The other issue I had with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
was that he told me for the first time that I would need to pay in full upfront for the pet sitting/house sitting services before any services were ever received. I can understand paying a partial deposit to schedule a booking, but for all of my years of using a sitter, I have never been asked to pay in full for services never even rendered.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
told me that you are required to pay in full for a meal at
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
's, as well as paying for an airline ticket...he said it was the same thing. He told me this was on his website that a deposit must be paid. Paying a deposit and paying in full for services a week in advance without ever having received the services yet are two different things. He told me that after the first sitting experience that something else in the future could be worked out with regard to paying in full upfront of the booking week. I told
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
that I felt that he had misled me with regard to the actual rate that was first agreed upon with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
in my first conversation with her. He was the one who told me to call her and indicated that
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
may be agreeable to working with me about the rate. I asked
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
in front of
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
if she remembered my conversation with her the first time I spoke to her and whether or not she had agreed to accept the initial rate I quoted to her and she advised me in front of
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
that she did agree to the original rate we spoke about. I have a lot of respect for
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
for being truthful and honest about this.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
told me after this, that he would discuss this with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
further and that he would either call me or email me to tell me if they could provide me services. I told
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
that I had my own reservations about whether I could trust him to be the "backup" in dealing with my horses, as I did not have the impression that he had any experience with horses at all, especially when he told me he did not know how to drive a truck and trailer...then why even ask me for the truck keys to begin with?
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
had sent me his list of references from past clients and told me about his referrals. I told
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
that I had reviewed that list of references and that I never saw
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
mentioned by name in any of the referrals, saw that there were only TWO housesits showing on that list, and that no horses were listed as having been serviced by them.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
then told me that I would be the FIRST one. I do NOT have any confidence in using
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
to deal with my horses and feel that he definitely mislead me from the beginning with the rate agreed to with
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
when he increased the rate by $40 at the end of the day after going over everything with him and
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
. By being an hour late for their appointment with me, he cut into my time with my animals because he would be late giving meds to another dog. It was no surprise that he sent me an email indicating that they could not service me and my pets. What bothers me is that his website indicates they give discounts for rescue animals. I have EIGHT rescue animals and no discount was mentioned, but only an increase in the quote. The other problem I have is that he wasted so much of my time over several days with my sending him emails about my animals, not to mention spending time going over things here at the house, to tell me something completely different in the end and leaving me without a pet sitter/house sitter with such short notice in trying to locate another sitter. I do not feel he was honest and upfront with me and would never recommend him to anyone. In the end, I felt it was all about money. He never took the time to meet my other horses at the other barn and quite frankly was indifferent in attitude with regard to my animals.
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
on the other hand, I have no problems with. She was very honest in her dealings with me. One last note...I had asked
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
what his coverage was for being bonded and insured...I never received an answer about any of this via email, nor in person with him at our meeting. I sent
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
an email in response to his email indicating he was not servicing me to let him know the problems I had with him so this review should be of no surprise to him. I was very sincere with my intention of having
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
sit for me from Day one when she agreed to the rate I proposed to her. It was totally UNEXPECTED on my part when
Saint Cloud Dog Walkers Provider Name Locked
skyrocketed the fee, especially when he also knew what the fee was from Day One...what the heck was that all about? What a waste of my time!
