Puppy Love staff are always reliable, kind, careful and considerate. Most of the time my cats have had the same sitter and they know him and love him. One of my cats now needs asthma medication and the PL folks were happy to learn how to do this and to incorporate it into their care routine and come as needed to administer it. They always let me know if we need to train someone new on the routine ...

I have used Puppy Love for pet sitting for my cats for 12 years on numerous occasions throughout those years. Initially the owner came and met with us and learned their routine. After that the staff (usually the same person) came and fed my cats, cleaned their bowls and litter box, filled their fountain, played with them and kept me apprised if there were any problems.

For the nearly 10 years Puppy Love has walked my dog, they have been unfailingly reliable, responsive and professional.  The dog walkers have all been true dog lovers who are wonderful with my dog.  It's very important to me that Puppy Love provides walks one dog at a time and thus that my dog gets the dog walker's full attention. My dog loves people (more than other dogs) and he loves his Puppy L...

Puppy Love provides two walks a day for my dog, on an as needed basis, but generally has walked my dog at least once a week for almost 10 years.

We are long-time customers of Puppy Love, dating back to the 1990s and through three generations of pets.  We have had a few breaks in that time period, but most recently, they have provided excellent care in the past two years of our small (10-lb) and large (70-lb) dogs.  They have been unfailingly flexible in accommodating near-weekly schedule changes, owing to dynamic work schedules.  They also...

Daily walks for two dogs

Horrible experience. We hired Puppy Love several months ago to walk our dogs. They agreed to provide a daily mid-day, Monday-Friday walk for 30 minutes. We had received negative reports from our neighbors and our cleaning lady that our dogs were not being walk. The employee would simply let the dogs out in the back yard for a few minutes to take care of their business. I had to witness this for my...

The provider was to walk the dogs.

This client was clearly very unhappy with the service we provided for his dogs for over a year. I take my job as a pet care service owner very seriously. This is how I keep a roof over my head and how I feed my children, and I have been in business for about twenty years. The overwhelming majority of my clients are raving fans. A very small percentage are not. I stay awake at night worrying about ...


We've been using Puppy Love to do a mid-day walk for our two dogs for about seven months.  Our dogs are a bit challenging as we have a 130-pound Newfoundland and a very high-energy lab/pitbull mix. Our walker is phenomenal.  From observing him a few times when we were home plus the notes he leaves, he definitely adores dogs.  We feel totally confident that they are in good and loving hands. Overal...
