Best Pet Care Company

We are proud of our happy clients. Here’s what a few of them are saying about Puppy Love Pet Sitters:

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 have been unfailingly thoughtful in ensuring comprehensive care of our dogs as well as our home.  To share some specifics — on one occasion, our dog walker was critical in alerting us to a gas leak that was likely initiated when one of cats jumped on the stove and in doing so hit one of the dials.  On several other occasions, our walker went above and beyond in cleaning up after “digestive issues” experienced by our dogs.  Lastly, our walker has been very patient in the last year, as we all worked through the puppy phase of our large-breed dog.  Josh and Will run a professional organization — their billing is always correct and timely; they are near-instantly responsive to emails and phone calls; and they are personable.  We have come to view them not just as “service providers,” but wonderful people on whom we can rely on to keep our pets happy and our home life well-functioning.  We recommend them without hesitation.

Daily dog walker for our 3 dogs over the past 12 years. Also weekend/overnight care. I LOVE this company. They are very professional and caring and have never missed a walk. I trust them completely. Most importantly they are excellent with any dogs, some of whom have been difficult for others to handle.

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. Overall, the service has been great. Reliable, dependable, responsive. We would recommend them very highly to anyone.

Terrific experience with Puppy Love. They’re great. We started using Puppy Love last summer and they are unfailingly unfailingly reliable, courteous, prompt and meticulous in tending to our dog’s needs (and yes, even his whims). Their services also go beyond your pet. Are you on a trip and worry about whether you left the oven on? Just email them and they’ll check it when they come by for a walk. Do you need plants watered while you’re gone? Ask them! Did you lock yourself out of the house? Am embarrassed to say that I know from personal experience that they’ll come by to let you in with the key you’ve given them. Most importantly, judging from our experience, the walkers will love your pets, foibles and all and give you walk-by-walk reports on how they’re doing. We’ve got an older but still frisky dog with high affection needs. He loves his Puppy Love walkers and we come home to a happy creature, even when we’re gone for several days. They are also wonderful about last-minute requests. I’ve never had one ignored (or turned down!). Can’t imagine life without Puppy Love. Nor, I’m sure, can Scrappy.

Best Dog Walkers Ever! Puppy Love joined our family seven years ago,shortly after we acquired our Jack Russell Terrier, Tilly. I agonized over hiring a service. After all, Tilly IS my only child. Looking back over these seven years, I have had not a single complaint with the services provided by Puppy Love. Josh and Will love pets, and the dog walkers are dependable. A real plus is that there is very little turn over with their walkers so your dog gets to bond with the assigned walker. Lee, Tilly’s current walker, even made her homemade dog treats at Christmas! We used to use Puppy Love five days a week, but with my retirement, we only use them on an “as needed” basis. Will has always been most accommodating and professional about scheduling (or even canceling) walks at the last minute. They truly care about their customers–both the two and four legged ones! I would not hesitate in recommending Puppy Love for your dog walking needs.

Puppy Love has walked my dog daily for 10 years! He early awaits his walker, who never fails to come (and leaves me a note to show he was there). They are very reliable and wonderful! I would recommend them highly and so would my dog!

– Orit Frenkel, Angie’s List

The owner Josh came to my house to meet our dog and explain the service. He was kind and professional. Then, I was assigned a single person who would be my dog’s walker. That person came every day, which was great that one person, not a rotating cast of characters, would be in my house and with my puppy. Each day, my walker either took the dog for a walk or played outside with her. She left a note after each visit that explained what took place during her time with our puppy. She then returned the puppy to her crate and locked the front door behind her. Never a single problem.
The company does everything possible to provide excellent service and, as a result, made my life easier in so many ways. I have a work schedule that changes a lot and they were happy to change the dog walker’s schedule each time I needed it (which was almost weekly.) This included adding visits or canceling them, often without a lot of notice. The company will either email you a bill or bill your credit card. They always provide an itemized bill or receipt. You can also have them come at night if you have a commitment after work and cannot get home to let the dog out. They will feed your dog, play with your dog, help you train your dog, etc. And, always, always, with politeness and professionalism. I probably sound like a paid sponsor — but I am not! I was just very very impressed by the way the company was run.

– Karen McSweeney, Angie’s List

Puppy Love walkers have been totally reliable. They’ve never missed a walk. Puppy Love walkers are friendly and responsible. We have felt entirely comfortable having a walker stay over when we’ve been out of town for a day or two, which is terrific help. Puppy Love never misses a beat. We could not ask for more from a pet care service.

– Jon Reel

I have been a satisfied client of Puppy Love for about two and a half years now. Puppy Love is very responsive to my needs and communicates well with me. More importantly, the Puppy Love dog walkers love dogs and are very knowledgable and sensitive to dog and human behavior. My dogs love to walk with them!

– Scott Wiskoski


Our cat, Chester, has a high need for attention and affection. Puppy Love takes great care of him when we are away. They are always sure to spend time playing with him, and they always leave detailed notes for us. It is a great comfort knowing that Puppy Love takes such great care of him when we are away. We have, and will continue to, recommend Puppy Love to our friends – both dog and cat owners.
