Here’s what our clients have to say!
“2 thumbs up”
I would give the service 2 thumbs up!!! The dog sitting was GREAT! I really loved that they have nothing on their car that announces ‘dog-sitting.
“devoted and individualized service”
They offer very devoted and individualized service. The owner is very devoted to making sure that every detail is just how you want it and is very careful to make me, as the client, happy when caring for my pet. I would have no hesitation, whatsoever, using them.
Dances with Dogs is terrific
Dances with Dogs is terrific and I completely trust them with my dog and in my home. I’ve been using Dances with Dogs for several years. Katie is very responsible, professional and loving.
Best value and service around
Dances with Dogs has been my pet sitter since 2010. I am a business owner who travels, with frequent schedule changes, and Dances with Dogs handles my situation with professionalism that is unmatched by any other pet sitting or kenneling arrangement. Additionally, in the course of the last six years, DWD has cared for two of my very elderly pets with compassion and a brand new puppy. I never worried when they were in charge. BEST VALUE AND SERVICE around. If you want professional service, this is it.
Sincerely care about your pets!
I have used this company for nearly 12 years. They are now like family. Very good about responding or phoning with any questions or concerns. Please don’t consider any other pet sitter but this one. They are reasonable, reliable and sincerely care about your pets!
We totally recommend her!
We adopted a little toy poodle with a very sad and traumatic background. She was terrified of everything and wouldn’t stop whimpering at night. We had bought Calming Care, Rescue Remedy for Dogs, Adaptil and more, and nothing seemed to work. We didn’t know what else to do so we looked for a trainer and found Dances for Dogs on Thumbtack. We wrote them a long message with everything we were experiencing with our dog. Katie immediately replied with her phone number and we ended up having a long conversation. We immediately knew we were talking to an expert who had training in animal behavior so we decided to schedule a session. Katie was SO patient with us and with our little anxious dog. She taught us about body language and gave us a lot of helpful ideas and information to make our dog feel more comfortable. We liked Katie so much that we ended purchasing a package. With time, patience, and practice, our dog became more calm, extremely social with other dogs, less anxious around other people, and finally slept through the night. Katie also taught us about basic commands, gave us ideas about puzzle toys and other ways to keep her mind engaged in something else other than her anxiety. Our dog is doing so much better now and we have to thank Katie for a lot of her progress. We totally recommend her! –AE
I cannot thank Katie enough
I was referred to Katie by my veterinary behaviorist to work with my three-year-old dog’s fear and reactivity. Katie worked with the two of us to teach us techniques to provide her and me with the ability to confront her fears and take the necessary steps towards overcoming them. She treated my dog with nothing but patience and kindness, always making sure that she was as comfortable as possible and never pushed her beyond her limits or into a situation she was unable to handle. After our training sessions, my dog has already become so much more confident than before. I cannot thank Katie enough for her guidance and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking help with a fearful or reactive dog! –Allison Benitez
Reliable, knowledgeable, flexible and fun
Positive: Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness
I can not say enough wonderful things about Dances With Dogs. We were lucky enough to have Mia as the trainer assigned to our puppy LouLou. Mia is a GEM. She had LouLou pegged from the beginning and she taught LouLou and us so much. LouLou is a smart, curious Whoodle puppy who fell in love with Mia. We called Mia her “tutor”. Mia is reliable, knowledgeable, flexible and fun. Dances with Dogs is the creme de la creme of training and we will keep them in our dogs life forever. –Julie Lambert

First speaking with Katie and then working now with Sarah for many weeks, I can wholeheartedly say this entire experience has been amazing. They are loving , understanding, flexible and truly want your pup to get as much out of the training as possible. They go above and beyond to help with suggestions and follow up. I can’t say enough great things about them!!! My puppy absolutely adores Sarah, his trainer, and so do we! –Maria Wuerl
