“Fiona is fantastic – I recommend her to everyone. She is responsible, reliable, friendly and my usually-shy dog loves her. She has always found a way to flex her schedule to fit us in when we really needed it – for a last minute work emergency, or when I hurt my knee and suddenly needed help with walks every day. She also always sends adorable photos of my dog having a blast. She is knowledgable about dogs and training and has always been really effective working with my dog even when he was a 100+lbs of puppy energy.” – Kate McLeod

“Sabrina is AMAZING and we are so grateful to have her as our dog walker! She has been walking our pup Peanut since he was a few months old and he LOVES HER! She is patient, knowledgeable and took the time to really get to know Peanut and create a friendly and safe environment for him to enjoy his weekly walks. He was timid at first, but her training skills and abilities have really assisted him in his walks with us as well and his interactions with other dogs. Thank you Sabrina!” – Sanaz Safari

“Amanda takes my extremely stubborn and dramatic English Bulldog out for private walks every week, and he is always so pumped for them!
He can be a tough pup to walk due to his absolute desire to not walk, but Amanda is so patient, and knows how to trick this finicky big guy into getting his exercise in! I know Ernie is in the best hands with her every time they go out – could not recommend Amanda more!” – Jessiva Been
