hayden the dog

As a new dog owner, it was super easy to set up my account, add info about my pup and where he’s at. Walker followed all instructions, I got a great update immediately after the walk and my puppy had no accidents in the crate. So all in all, a great experience and I would certainly use them again.

Cheryl W., Great Experience!

I just used this service for the first time when going away. I was a little nervous about it as it was the first extended period of time away for my kitties. However, I was very happy with the service! Who knew I’d be looking forward to my visit summaries so much! Sarah watched my cats and her write-ups were so pleasant and the pictures were very sweet. Great company and great employees. Thanks so much!

Brianna K., Great Company and Great Employees!
Baxter the dog

We have been with Trusty Tails from the beginning and we trust them with not only our baby (8 years!) but our home. Heather is a passionate business owner and is an amazing success story. She has always acted with integrity and made the right decisions, even difficult ones, in order to preserve the reputation of her business. A few years ago we had a very traumatic incident at a boarding facility in town that resulted in our dog having emergency surgery. During that difficult time Heather was there to help guide us through the process and offer specialized care to Baxter during his difficult recovery. We will never forget that difficult time and we now use Trusty for in home pet sitting and overnights as well as daily walks. We feel like we can finally enjoy a vacation again. We love getting our notes everyday and we always know that Baxter is receiving the best care possible.

sonny the dog

I have been using Trusty Tails for years and I just can’t recommend them enough. I love having the peace of mind that my dog, Sonny is safe and taken care of while I’m at work. The company screens every single employee (every walker I’ve met so far is very sweet and loves Sonny) and they send photos during almost every walk. They also have a new system that makes scheduling and canceling walks really easy. I definitely see a huge difference in Sonny’s demeanor, he is much happier with daily walks Thanks, TT!

Emma S., Can't Recommend Enough!
Dog look through the window

Trusty Tails is a wonderful company. The dog walkers are so great and our dogs, Banana and Nutmeg, look forward to their weekly walks. I know that our walker takes good care of them and I am so appreciative to have a someone come in and check in on them during the day. Thanks so much!

Katie M., Wonderful Company
Lola the dog

We have used Trusty Tails since our Lola was just 8 weeks old (now almost two years old) and the staff has always been impeccable! Reliable, trustworthy, and super nurturing to our dog! They treat our dog like their very own! We recommend Trusty Tails to anyone with a pet!

Bernadette M., Impeccable!
a dog with a red harness

Trusty Tails has been wonderful to our Welsh terrier puppy, Kate Woofington. It is so reassuring to know that Woof (as we call her) is in such great hands while we are at work. Our puppy is essentially growing up with our Trusty Tails walker. It’s fun to hear about her daily walks and what has gone on while we are away! They are flexible and very organized about our schedule – thank you Trusty Tails for taking such great care of our Woof!

Sarah B., Flexible and Very Organized!

We have been with Trusty Tails for over two years now and it is safe to say we love the services that are provided for our dogs. We have had the opportunity to have daily walks and overnight stays as needed. We do not have to worry about our dogs while we are away because we know they are in great hands. Our dogs can be rather difficult at times, however our dog walker knows exactly how to handle them. Our dogs absolutely love our walker! As a courtesy, our walker has left daily notes updating us about the walk and if the dogs received any additional care. We very much appreciate the extra effort and support!

Nicole and Dean O., Caring and Responsible
Two cats and a dog

Trusty Tails has been taking fantastic care of Freddie, our dog, and Timothy and Zorro, our two cats, for many years now. When I work from home, I get to see first-hand the excitement and 100 miles per hour tail wags Freddie has for his walker. He loves his pack, and most of all his chocolate Chihuahua girlfriend Godiva! When we go away on vacation we are so happy to have one of Trusty Tails house sitters come and take care of all of our “furry kids.” It makes us relax to know that they are in good hands. On occasion when Freddie goes with us, we know that the cats are safe and cared for with their twice daily visits for food and litter cleaning. We recommend Trusty Tails to everyone we know.

Cecilia K., Fantastic Care

I love Trusty Tails! Our sitter is so great with Zorro, taking the time to play with him and give him attention while I’m away. And she always sends at least one photo of him so I can see him every day! So reliable and awesome, I’d recommend Trusty Tails to anyone who loves their pet.

Lynn N., I Love Trusty Tails

We were very happy with the our sitters. They were great and we felt safe leaving our cats to their care while we were away.

Carolyn N., Felt Safe Leaving Our Cats

I would highly recommend Trusty Tails to anyone who is looking for a dog walker or for someone to stay with your dog overnight! Our two dogs have been walked and had overnights with trusty tails walkers for 1-1/2 years and we couldn’t be happier with the service we’ve received. The GPS tracking is also a great bonus.

zoey the dog

In the 1.5 years since getting our puppy Zoey, we can confidently say that we wouldn’t have made it this long without Trusty Tails! Their rock solid reliability and personal caring for our dog has made them a great partner for us. On top of regularly scheduled visits, they have frequently risen to the occasion and helped us during unexpected late days, weekends and even when we’ve been sick. We strongly recommend them to anyone!

Jon Z., Strongly Recommend to Anyone
