  • Love Those Paws has been taking care of my pets for over 6 years.  The professionalism of the owners, Stewart and Annette, is what won me over.  I still remember our first consultation and feeling immediately at ease that they would be accountable for our pets? welfare.  I was VERY protective of our elderly, but still a little spunky, 3-pound Chihuahua, who has since passed.  He was my baby and I didn?t even trust family to take care of him.  They were very accommodating of his needs ? a lot of cuddling! They also cared for our long haired cat, who is very weary of strangers, but she often came out for them!
    After our Chihuahua passed, a German Shepherd puppy joined our family.  They have been providing daily lunchtime walks 4-5 times/week for our GSD for almost 2 years now, and went through the puppy-to-adolescent phase right alongside us!  They are always punctual and arrive within the same hour window every day, which is very important to us because our dog knows when it?s time!
    After each visit, the caregiver provides a detailed note of when he/she arrived & departed, and what activities occurred.  We are always amazed at how the nuances of our pets? personalities are captured in the notes.  These are pet people and they have really gotten to know and enjoy our pets!
    Partly because we have small children, we have been very particular about our dog?s training/manners, and Stewart has ensured consistency with our training/routines, for example, asking our dog to sit before exiting the house and not permitting our dog to pull on the leash.  We?ve shared any new training commands/gestures our dog has learned with Stewart, and at the end of her walk, he goes through a few of them.  Stewart personally walks our dog each day? talk about personal service!!  Our dog is somewhat social and interested in new people, but after a fleeting moment of excitement, she tends to be lukewarm with them.  This is not the case with Stewart ? they have some kind of crazy, special bond.  It?s really fun to watch them interact.  He brings out the best in her.
    In the event they need to provide an alternate dog walker, it is usually the same young woman, who has an amazing sweet and calm demeanor that speaks to our dog, and she too keeps up the same routine as it?s noted in our file. 
    This type of consistency and positive reinforcement, coupled with Love Those Paws? professionalism and adoration for our pets provides an unmatched relationship and value ? much more than a basic service. 
    Also, although we try to plan ahead? life happens.  And Love Those Paws is very accommodating of changes and last minute requests.  Despite the owners both actively providing pet care, they are surprisingly responsive to emails and returning phone calls.
     
    Did I mention that our human kids love ?Mr. Stewart? too?  ?If only they could expand into childcare! :)

  • As usual, things went smoothly during this most recent time I employed Paw Walkers to look after my dogs.  I have used Ruth's dog walking and sitting services on a recurring basis for almost 8 years.  Ruth is highly responsible and has always been comfortable with the variety of big and small, young and old dogs that I've relied on her to care for in my absence.  I've made use of her services for both short visits and for longer pet sitting lasting months.  In the latter situation, she was the most responsible member of a team of people who cared for my animals and my home while I was on a long term assignment.
    If she's in doubt about an animal's condition, Ruth will err on the side of caution and contact the owner.  I particularly like that she takes the time to text photos and notes about my pets when I'm away for more than a day or two.

  • New Dog Owner: I've been thrilled with the personalized attention given to my dog and to me. I've  used the service once or twice a week for about 4 months. I am a first time dog owner and they have been very informative and patient with my questions. The owners of Love Those Paws have done a wonderful job reminding me that it's time to schedule walk(s) for the week. They use email for this and/or will give a gentle phone call reminder when scheduling has slipped my mind. The walkers leave personalized notes after each walk and follow directions from our intake conference to a tee. The owner came to my house to meet my dog and took copious notes on his care prior to agreeing to take my dog on as a client. I felt immediately comfortable with his knowledge and care and recommended Love Those Paws to another dog owner who was in need of care for her puppy in a very short turn around time due to circumstances beyond her control. Four paws up for this company.

  • We just needed to have the dogs taken out a couple of times during the day so half-hour visit was $17. They were very good. I would recommend them if they needed that service. The people came out ahead of time, got a lot of information, got to know the dog, and what the circumstances in the house were. They did a good job. Their preparation even just for a half-hour walk, I was amazed. Their price is competitive pretty much with everybody else is doing, but the fact that they are pretty good. They are high quality.

  • I recently had an emergency trip. My husband was home evenings but we needed a dog walking service during the day. Love Those Paws came through for us on short notice. They had no trouble using our security system. Each visit included: a walk, a feeding and making sure the water dish is full. The walker left a hand written/signed report for each visit. The report included the arrival and departure of the walker. If our dog did her "business" etc. They also gave her some cuddle time. The best review of all is that each night my husband saw a happy, tail wagging dog.

  • Stewart, Annette and their team are wonderful! They take such good care of my dog while I am at work! They also have no problem with me texting them throughout the day to see how my dog is doing. I would DEFINITELY recommend Love Those Paws!!

  • Excellent service, will be a repeat customer as long as our dog is around.  When we leave on a vacation, it is reassuring to know that both the dog and house are being watched.  The entire staff at Love Those Paws has been nothing but great, exceptional people to work with.  Our dog loves their staff, and we always come home to a happy pooch.  Would refer Love Those Paws to all family and friends, it is an outstanding operation with fantastic people.

  • I signed up based on my first meeting with Stewart, who dropped to his knees to greet my dog and cat in the foyer.  I have been a regular for the past 4 weeks, and I could not be happier.  My dog gets a walk and potty break at midday while I am at work, and we have also used their services for nightly feedings when we are not able to make it home.  I would recommend them to anyone!

  • The owner personally comes over to introduce herself to the dogs. She makes sure she knows what times to walk them, feed them as we'll as medications. They try to give you peace of mind and to return to happy well cared for pets. They give you written reports of each visit. They are just awesome!

  • Martina is excellent. I am shocked by the previous review and would not trust anybody but her with my dogs. She has been with us for 2 years and she has been a blessing. She is very reliable, not canceling once in 2 years. I don't know anyone that doesn't get sick and call out. She is very great with the dogs and teaches them tricks and better behavior every day she is hear. My dad calls her our own dog whisperer. She writes extremely detailed notes that are not only comical but very helpful about her walk with the dogs.
