"I have been using
's dog walking services since October 2014, and couldn't speak more highly about the business and especially" my regular dog walker,
. The $325 fee is for daily walks, 5 days/week; while walks are not provided on major holidays (no discount given), walks are included for many holidays (such as MLK Day) without any additional charge. (For the first year I used its services,
walked two dogs for me, at an extra charge of only $5/day- slightly less when the 5 days/week monthly package is purchased.) If you do not need walks 5 days/week, the daily rate is comparable to any reputable dog walking service in the city. What has made
stand out for me are the following: (1) Expertise with dogs. When
first started, one of my dogs had quite a fear of him and growled; she wouldn't let him near her to walk her (sadly, this behavior developed through negative experiences with my prior dog walking service and its walkers who were neither reliable nor particularly knowledgeable of animals, something I realized too late). Rather than refusing to walk her, he patiently worked with her so that she would not be fearful, and she became quite fond of him. (2) Reliability. My dog is my fur-baby, so knowing that I can always rely on
to be there every single day, rain or shine, sun or snow, is very comforting. Not once in the year and three months that I have used
have I ever gotten a last minute call, text, or email canceling dog walking services for the day. Any cancellations (due to holidays or dangerously inclement weather) are always provided in advance, and substitute dog walkers have always been provided if/when
is not available (which is rare). (3) Flexibility. I have a very busy schedule, which sometimes means that I find myself needing an extra dog walk during an evening or over weekends. Sometimes my requests come only a few hours' in advance of the need, and yet every single time
has been able to assist, or find another walker who can help out. Further, if I have previously scheduled extra walks but do not end up needing the service, so long as I cancel before the walker leaves for/arrives at my home, I am not charged- even for same day cancellations (caveat: I think this is a benefit of the 5 days/week walking package; there may be a minor charge for day-of cancellations otherwise). I also love that
will do either individual or pack walks, depending on what is best for your dog. I always loved the pack walks for the increased socialization, but especially since the death of one of my dogs, the daily pack walk has been really therapeutic for my other dog. While she lost her sister, she still gets to see 3 of her doggie buddies 5 days/week, which I know she loves. (4) Care above and beyond what is "required." There have been times when I scheduled an evening walk but forgot to specifically leave instructions for
to feed my dog; he knows my dog's routine and thinks of things I may have forgotten, so my pup has never had to miss (or be late) for a meal due to my forgetfulness. Also, during days when I am working from home and
arrives for the walk, my dog sprints to the front door to
him; her affection for him is obvious. It is clear that he treats her very well, because she loses all interest in me the moment he arrives. (5) Consistency. Several of my friends use other (one in particular) very reputable neighborhood dog walking services. However, the walkers hired by the other services seem to be more transient (or, at least, in transition) and every few months my friends have a new walker, which appears to be the norm for this type of business (not a criticism, just an observation). That said, I very much appreciate that I have had the same walker,
, for the entire time I have used
. While my dog is always excited for anyone who comes to walk her, I like that she has "her person" with whom she has developed a bond, and who she looks forward to seeing every day. (6) Trustworthy. I live in a condo, so the safety and security of all residents' in my building is important. I implicitly trust
and the other employees at
with access to my building and unit. I look forward to a continued relationship with
, and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone in need of dog walker or sitter.

From the start
Latham Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
from
Latham Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and professional. She provided detailed pricing and policy information via email. All of our questions were answered promptly. She arranged the initial interview with our assigned sitter and collected very thorough information about our pets' needs and routines....More /> Our pet sitter was Krissi, and we were very happy with the pet sitting services that she provided for us over the holidays. Having just moved to the area, we were a little nervous about using a pet sitting service, but Krissi put us at ease from the first visit. When we returned home, we found our pets happy and well taken care of. Her visits included administering three medications, two times per day, to our older cat, as well as specially mixing his food, and she completed it all with no problems. Her reports from each visit were very thorough, and it is obvious that she loves caring for animals. We will definitely use
Latham Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and Krissi again in the future.

They are very caring and hands-on with animals. They took excellent care of my pets. I will definitely use them again and again. They have proven to be very dependable. The lady who walked them was excellent at handling them. My pets are like my kids, so I wanted to make sure they were taken care of. They are price competitively. I would give them an A+. They write down all of the information about your pets, so they have it for the next time. I felt that they could trust them in my house.

The pet sitter was great. Followed all of our instructions. She also left us notes each day to let us know what she had done and how our cat behaved. The company is always very responsive when we need a pet sitter and we've never had any issues with the sitters they've sent in the past. Prices seem comparable with other pet sitters in the area. We definitely plan on sticking with this company to take care of our cat in the future.

DJ kept in constant contact by email and text messaging and send us updates on how the pets were doing each day. We never had a house sitter before, but after meeting her in person twice before the assignment, we felt very comfortable in using her services. Needless to say, she was very meticulous and professional. When we got back, the house looked impeccable and the pets were bathed, well-cared for, and very happy. She brought in the mail and newspapers as well. It is not easy taking care of two small puppies and a kitten, but DJ managed to train them into following a routine and getting them housebroken. Her fees were very reasonable especially since she included housesitting services. Knowing that our pets had someone with them overnight was a big relief especially since we were so far away and in a different time zone. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone. We will keep using her as our pet sitter going forward.

Hiring

They understood ALL of our needs. The occasional package on the porch that I couldn’t access because of my injury was cheerfully delivered to me.
