  • I travel quite a bit for work and have been using Sit A Pet for at least 10 years. They provide wonderful care for my cats (and my house)!!!! My cats are never stressed out when I return home - and, when they hear their pet sitter in the hallway when she takes care of the neighbor's pets, they always run to the door hoping that she might come in to see them! The pet sitter brings in my mail and always reaches out to me if there is something amiss in my home. They are very patient with my often-changing schedule, which I appreciate. I could not do the job I do without their availability and the great pet care they provide!!!

  • I give my unreservedly highest recommendation possible for David and Sidewalk Dog Training. Having a strong bond with your dog is not a “nice to have;” it is essential for the happiness, well-being and health of both you and your dog. When we welcome a new furry family member into the home, it may not always be easy. With David’s support, I am fully confident that whatever problems you have, there is a way through. I know this because David helped us through a very challenging time. In the process of fostering two dogs, I was faced with significant aggression issues. Little did I know, David’s guidance showed me just how seriously I was exacerbating the situation. My actions weren’t expressing to my dog the confidence that he needed to truly become himself. And that is the beauty in what David provides: the tools, knowledge and confidence to be the leader your dog wants you to be, so they can be themselves, and live in a happy family unit in harmony. So, while I went into the training looking for ways to “control my dog,” David truly provided me the knowledge and understanding to control myself, and be the leader that my dog needs. I cannot thank him enough, nor recommend him enough.

  • Every dog owner needs to hire Sidewalk Dog Training including experienced dog owners! After our two 14yr old furbabies passed away, we decided to attempt to fill some of the void by fostering. We've been around all types of dogs and our dogs were rescues from unfortunate circumstances so I felt confident about our abilities to be effective fosters. Unfortunately, this was not the case. We did not learn that our first foster pup was super aggressive until we brought in a second foster dog. The second dog is timid and gentle, and our first foster became very aggressive and territorial. His behaviors were challenging and became scary. He started getting aggressive toward us when we tried redirecting him from his negative behaviors. After he attacked and bit the new foster dog on the face and neck, we knew we had to get professional help. Thank goodness for Sidewalk Dog Training and David! David was reassuring from the start and approaches his work with an asset-based mindset. He is incredibly knowledgeable and loves what he does! David was patient and took the time to answer all of my millions of questions. He quickly identified our dog's needs and what is causing him to be aggressive and anxious. We learned how our body language was miscommunicating expectations which exacerbated our dog's behavior. He demonstrated skills and had us practice them. Everything was broken down thoughtfully with the reasoning behind the action. David provides resources including his book, visuals, and breed specific activities and tools, as well as regular check-ins and communication with additional resources. I could go on and on about our experience...!!! THE RESULTS: Truly miraculous! You would've never known our foster dog was aggressive. He is super loving and affectionate. He plays and goes on walks with his foster brother, and they can ride in the car together for regular outdoor adventures and road trips. He no longer views his foster brother as a threat. Consistently utilizing the skills we learned from David has eliminated any signs of previous behaviors. If any negative behaviors start creeping back in, we are able to reflect and identify our behavior and inconsistencies that may be triggering it so that we can quickly address it. Also, David is always willing to provide additional support as needed! A massive weight has been lifted from our shoulders! It feels empowering to be able to support our foster dogs and ensure they feel secure and loved... So much so that we made the decision that this will be their furever home! As someone who did extensive research and had multiple conversations with dog trainers in the area, I can confidently tell you that David is who you need to hire. Don't hesitate because it will drastically improve the quality of you and your furbabies life just like it did ours!

  • Their prices are cheap, but that's the only thing going for it. I called in advance to find out the price of the exam I wanted for my dog. The woman on the phone said I needed to meet first with the vet to get a price. I went on a Sat. and because they don't take appointments, waited for 2 hours in an extremely crowded, unpleasant waiting room. I finally got called back with my dog and said the name of the exam. They'd never heard of it and said "just tell us what you need," no real consultation. So I looked it up on Google. After leaving I had to return to leave another payment for the lab work that they 'hadn't known about.' I got the results and it was for something totally different. I wasted like $250 for the WRONG test. I expected the vet to know what this test was for my dog, not for me to have to Google it. They were rushed and appeared stressed. And there was an uncomfortable dynamic between the vet and his assistant (his wife, I believe) - they were short and snappy with each other, which was unpleasant to be around. Overall, a very disappointing experience and I will not go back.

  • I called on very short notice needing boarding as my normal sitter wasn't available and needed to leave town on emergency. Paradise for Pets was accommodating and friendly, and seemed genuinely appreciative of my business (and I hope I made clear how appreciative I was of their taking a new client.) Upon arrival, the dogs in the outdoor runs were clearly enjoying one another's company and in good care. My dog ended up staying 2.5 days (a day longer than I expected) and was clearly in good spirits when I arrived.

  • Delivered Great! I have been using Petsitting by Patricia for dog walks since August of 2015. Our first dog, Artie, loved Lory and she loved him. Sadly, he passed away in December of 2017. We got a new puppy, Rocco, in the summer and he is now being walked by Lory. We all still miss Artie (Lory included), but Rocco loves seeing Lory and we are so fortunate to use Patricia’s dog walking service. All the walkers have been on time and scheduling extra walks for vacation has been so easy. Such a great service!

  • It was a lot of money. I thought they were kind of expensive and they lost my cat's blood samples so I had to take my cat back for a second blood test, which wasn't a lot of fun, but they were nice about it.

  • He is a former rescue from that place, so he gets a liittle discount. He is 80 lbs. Price is comparable to other places, but I like the location and the people. I would use them again. They are very caring people. It is great, they all know him, even when I see workers there that I don't know they know him. It is nice to feel like somebody else is taking care of my dog. For the day care you can drop in, but the grooming you make an appointment.

  • If I know I am going to be gone for a long time, it is nice to have him get lots of exercise. They were great. Pirce of the boarding is good. It is good for a city boarding place. The punctuality is great! I would use them again.

  • I've used them for 20 years. I am happy but I think they are expensive. They are very very responsive and caring. I think their clinic is good, but I don't like the boarding there, but I don't board there.
