Dog Walking reviews in Rochester

    Plenty of Wags Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service
    We love Eric! He has been taking care of Fred and Lola since day one and we are so pleased! It is obvious that he loves animals and has pets of his own. The dogs much more content now that Eric is walking them. I came home early one day and he was finishing up his walk with them. It was wonderful to see how good they were on the leash for him and how happy they seemed overall. He leaves a daily "report card" on the counter letting us know how the walk went and he doesn't hesitate to contact me if he has a concern about the dogs. Its comforting to know that our neighbors have watched him in the neighborhood with our dogs and started using Eric for the care of their pets. Some for walks and some for weekend pet sitting. I highly recommend Plenty of Wags walking for the care of your pets!!

    Tim and Cami are great!  I've used them on 4 separate occasions so far.  They were very professional and always showed up at the agreed time.  They are extremely flexible and accommodating for whatever your schedule requires.  It's clear they have a passion for the animals they take care of.

    Jill is GREAT!  Rocky absolutely LOVES her!  She is a reliable, knowledgeable & loving pet care provider/companion who has provided services for us for about 7 years now.  We are fully confident that she would know how to handle any situation that might arise when our dog is in her care.

    Rochester Pet Sitters
    I interviewed several dog walkers and selected this one because the owner and principal dog walker was organized, good with my dogs, and acted very professionally in the interview and follow-ups.  She provided several references.   I hired her 3 months ago to walk my dogs every day, 5 days a week, midday.  A basic requirement was to leave a note after each walk.  The company provided the notebook in which these notes would be recorded. 
    -
    In the beginning there were notes left semi-regularly, then less regularly, then rarely.  Notes were written on less than 1/3 of the scheduled and paid for visits.  Despite regular requests to the owner of the service, communication did not improve.  There was a failure to reply to emails and messages.
    -
    I worked from home one day unexpectedly due to injury and despite the service collecting the check for which I'd pre-paid the whole week, no one showed up to walk my dogs.  I texted the the owner and asked if my dogs had been walked that day, and she replied with an apology that she messed up and failed to write in the book again.  As I knew for a fact that she had not been at my home,  I explicitly asked her if she had been at my home and walked my dogs.  She eventually replied that she was expecting someone else from her company to walk the dogs that day.
    -
    I suspect that the my dogs were only walked on the days on which the note was recorded in the book, meaning that the owner collected the checks and did not walk my dogs for 2/3rds of the days for which I paid.  I would not recommend this service to anyone.
