We have used Dog Walker Etc. on several occasions ranging from 10 - 30 days to do home visits twice a day. All their walkers are great and caring people. We have observed them taking care of our dog "Hardy" with lots of TLC from our home security system. They are reliable and we are happy knowing our furry family member is in loving hands! Many thanks to Erin and Rachael and their walkers, Kristin, Colleen, Alexia, Shannon, Amanda, Melissa and Hannah, you guys are the greatest!!! More...

We were off-island for eight days.  Dogwalker Etc. (Chelsea). Came in, took care of our cat, our fish, and one VERY sensitive plant.   The emailed report and photos each day were a tremendous comfort!  Our plant requires daily water in a specific amount; too much it turns brown, too little and it wilts, we came home to a healthy plant.  Guppies in two aquariums were healthy and their water indicated they had been fed per our instructions.   Our cat was happy to see us, and was obviously well cared for.  Daily we received  photos of our cat playing and being cared for, this relieved our anxiety and helped make our trip much less stressful.  Our overall feeling us that Chelsea is very trustworthy and is a true animal lover!

I met Erin at the pet expo and she was very polite, informative and professional about pet sitting our dogs at our wedding. We contacted her through their website which the communication is great. We met with Kandyce and she is just awesome!! Our dogs took to her as soon as we met, which was a really good sign because it's hard to trust anyone with our fur babies. We got Kandyce to babysit our dogs at our wedding which was at the Hyatt Regency. She was great with dressing them up, to bringing them to the rehearsal and ceremony. She even dressed their wagon up for wedding to make it pretty. Kandyce is really sweet and organized. She made sure they were comfortable and fed, had play time to even kisses. Thank you Kandyce for taking good care of our babies. It meant a lot to us knowing they were in good care. More...

Love Dogwalker Etc. I've used the service  a few times when leaving the island. Not only do I not have to worry about my dogs but I never had to worry about my valuables and they will even water the plants and bring in the mail. Very professional service, they leave you nice little notes on how everything went and send you pictures regularly. I will definitely be using this service over and over again. More...

I am so glad I found this company!! My petsitter for years retired last year and that was the only sitter my two chiweenies had ever known! ! I was so nervous about them getting used to someone else and having someone else stay in my home. I cannot recommend Dogwalker, etc enough!!!!!! From first contact, Rachel was very understanding of my nerves and Lauren provided wonderful care for the babies while I was gone over the Holidays!! She sent me pictures almost every day which really helped and I came home to the house just as I had left it!!! I was so pleased with this service that in January I added on a dogwalking service four days a week for my little guys and Alexia is just the sweetest soul. I told her I tease the boys when I get home and ask if they saw their girlfriend that day lol. They are so so happy with their exercise and extra loving while I am working. I am so glad for you guys!!!! If you're looking for a 5-star experience that can handle whatever your fears, quirks, preferences, they can do it with ease!!! Love you guys!!!!! More...

I am a first-time pet owner, and finding a pet-sitter when I'm out of town has always been stressful.  I booked Dogwalkers etc to watch my two cats, Kima and Bubbles, during the holiday season.  My husband and I were out of town for 13 days and I'm not going to lie -- I was pretty stressed about leaving them for that long!  This is the longest we'd have left Kima and Bubbles home alone. My fears were assuaged when I met Alexia, my sitter from Dogwalkers etc.  She was prompt, responsible, warm, reassuring, and friendly.  I had a good feeling off the bat; she responded to all of my calls and text messages quickly and never left a message unanswered.  When I met her for the first consultation, I showed here where we kept everything in the house and walked through our feeding and cleaning routines.  She met Kima and Bubbles and even got a chance to play with them. When it came time for us to go out-of-town, she picked up the keys from my apartment.  While we were gone, Alexia sent pictures every single day to update me on how my cats were doing.  I appreciate that they use an app to communicate with you.  I knew that at around the same time each day, I would receive an alert on my phone and get to check on my babies.  It was a huge relief, and I looked forward to seeing Alexia's messages each day.  And, as if that wasn't enough to address the concerns of a ridiculous type-A pet owner, when we returned home, Alexia made sure house was tidy.  She swept up the kitty litter in the bathroom, wiped down the counters, and made sure our cushions were re-positioned on the couch (when I'm sure the cats had knocked 'em around).  I could not have asked for a better pet-sitting experience, and I am 100% certain that we will be employing the services of Dogwalker etc again in the future.  I highly recommend this service for someone looking for a reliable, dependable, and excellent pet-sitter.

I absolutely love Dog Walkers Etc and have been extremely happy with their service! I have 2 large dogs (Golden Retrievers) that get a 30 minute walk, 5 days a week. I love their daily notes and daily pictures they send me from their walks- my boys always look so happy! We've had a couple different walkers during the past year and every one of them has been great! Totally worth the money. I'm so glad I found them and would 100% recommend them! More...

My baby is always happy to stay with Erin and her Ohana...her home away from home! We take extended trips and we know that she is happy and loved. We've tried several sitters but Dogwalker Etc is far and above any we have seen.  LOVE IS GIVEN OUT IN MASS QUANTITIES HERE! More...

Nicole has been our dog walker for the past year and a half. She walks our two 50-lb mutts Monday through Friday. One is a little nervous around new people. The other has medical issues including a spine condition that we have to be careful with (IVDD). He can also get extreme fear in unique situations due to a traumatic history. Nicole has been GREAT with our boys - despite their issues. She is very attentive to their needs. Though she normally leaves notes, though she sends texts if she notices strange behaviors or medical warning signs.She is also extremely reliable. She has never missed a day or failed to leave a message in all our time with us. She even accommodates last minute changes in our schedule - by doing extra walks when needed. In addition to her attentiveness and reliability, she also genuinely cares about the dogs. She works on their training before giving them snacks every day. She has also gifted them toys at the holidays and when my dog with IVDD was severely hurting and trying to heal.  I think the price of walks with Dogwalker Etc is worth every penny. I pay $23 dollars for a 30 minute walk. They don't up-charge for the second dog. My dogs are better behaved while at home because they get this mid-day exercise. The payment system is also automated online -- making my monthly payments extremely easy. I highly recommend Nicole and Dogwalker Etc if you want excellent care for your pets. More...

I recently went on a 10 day trip and had never left my dogs  before so needless to say I was very worried.   We have spirited larger dogs (blind Siberian husky and crazy springer spaniel).  Cost was not too bad.  Worth every penny to me.  $25.00 for a half hour walk and $30.00 for 45 minutes.   I sprung for the 45 minutes.  Kelly was our our walker and she took great care of our dogs letting them be themselves and taking great pics of them on their walks with huge smiles on their faces.  I got daily updates immediately after the walks to put my mind at ease.   Will definitely use this service,  and Kelly again if I ever go away again!!

Kelly was my dog walker.  She is amazing.  Not only did she walk my dogs, send pics and text messages about the walk, but she cared and loved my dogs.  My dogs are finicky walkers, and they did well with Kelly.  One of my dogs had cancer, and her care and concern was genuine.  I plan on asking Kelly to dog-sit when I go on trips and will definitely continue to use Dogwalker Etc!.

A little expensive but what do you expect it's a luxury service I believe. I used them temporarily because my dog walker went on vacation for a while and they did what they said they would do. Walked my l dog and left a note on how many times my dog used the bathroom and what she did. Very descriptive which I appreciate. I like that they bill over email but I wish there was an online way to pay it. More...

Normally when we leave on a trip we are fortunate enough to have friends house and dog sit. However on our most recent trip our friends were not available so we needed to find another option. We have three dogs that love being home and have never been boarded. We did look at boarding options but didn't like the idea of them being in a small space and not getting to spend time with each other (they are all best friends!). Also the cost to board three dogs is really high! We looked around for pet sitters and found Dogwalker Etc. The website was very informative and the reviews were good so we decided to set up an interview. We met with Sharol and could tell right away she loves animals. We have never had a stranger stay at our house before and expressed our concerns with the company owner Erin. She took the time to assure us that each employee (and the dog sitters are employees, not contractors), are fully vetted and have great references. We decided to give it a try and I am SO glad we did. We were gone for 7 days and Sharol was amazing with our dogs. When we came home the dogs were in good spirit and the house was even cleaner than we left it. We received texts about the daily activities. Never was I worried about the dogs (or house) well being. The whole experience was great. I am glad we gave it a try - our dogs are our kids and leaving them is very tough, but knowing there is someone who you can trust to take care of them in their home environment is such a relief.

Great service! Sitters are caring and considerate! They send pictures and texts to update you on your pet and always keep you aware of what's going on. Very dependable!

I do not kennel my dogs, as they both have pretty bad anxiety.  I found DogWalkers, specifically Kelsey, and we have never been more relieved to have someone we can trust with our home and furbabies. We just returned from a short mainland trip and found our dogs safe, happy and our home in good order.I was most impressed by the text updates during the trip and status notes waiting for us at home from each visit. We found out there was a bad storm while we were gone and Kelsey still made it over to take care of our babies. She was even so considerate to use a towel to wipe the dogs feet so they didn't drag in mud from the rain!!! Very happy overall with the entire process- Erin takes care of the business end- and with our specific Sitter, Kelsey. More...

Not sure what happened, but I signed up for an account on the website to get a reply on what services were available, but I never got a response back from earlier this year.  I was looking for a possible dog walking service during a period of recovery after an operation.  I got past my recovery and I'm walking my dog once again, but I don't plan on using Dogwalkers in the future due to lack to my response earlier this year.UPDATE:  Just talked to the owner and what apparently happened is a message was left on my voicemail, but the message must've gotten lost from my cell service.  The policy of Dogwalkers is one reply per customer.  I was able to talk to the owner and am satisfied with their follow-up and I look forward to utilizing their services when the time comes.

Dogwalker Etc. is an excellent service and company. I travel a lot for work and before I found Dogwalker Etc. I would always impose on my friends and neighbors to take care of my dogs because I hated the idea of kenneling them.  Travel was always stressful never really sure if they were getting the attention they need.   I have used Dogwalker Etc. twice while traveling off-island and plan to continue using them in the future.  I  couldn't be more please with the level of care and attention they gave to my dogs on both trips. We have two medium-to-large sized pups with tons of energy. While away, we received daily updates on our dogs via text message. We definitely recommend Dogwalkers Etc! More...

This is my second time using their service for my precious cat, Beaches el Gato. Both have been great experiences. My recent cat-sitter, Maureen, sent photos and video every other day throughout my vacation. It was reassuring to see Beaches playing or just posing for the camera. When I arrived back home I was happily surprised that Maureen wrote a note for each day's visit, reporting on Beaches' behavior and noting when she gave him treats. I loved reading the diary of what went on while I was gone! Superb service from the sitters I've worked with and Erin the owner! More...

These are the BEST pet sitters and dog walkers on Oahu! For the past 2 years Dogwalker Etc and it's awesome staff have been caring for my 2 cute pooches: Pepper & Gizmo. Anytime I have a question, Dogwalker Etc owner, Erin, has been giving me advice for my dogs.  It's been especially helpful when we adopted my little handful Gizmo. We have had typical new puppy owner issues like housebreaking, crate training and diet questions (Why does he eat his poop !!). Erin helped me navigate these problems with confidence, steering me in the right direction to find the answers we all needed.I wouldn't trust anyone but them with my pets and I know Erin and her team will always make sure my furry friends (and I) get the best care possible.We WOOF you Dogwalker Etc! :) More...

We went on vacation for 2 weeks and used them for their sitter service.  We had a relative staying behind in our house, but they were not going to be able to take care of our 100 lb. lab.  Since someone was going to be at the house, we just needed someone from Dogwalker Etc to come to our house and feed, water, give medicine, and walk our boy.  Our walker "Brigete" did a FANTASTIC job.  We got texts and pics each day of our boy getting his exercise.  It was really a nice touch to see he was being well taken care of.  We will definitely use them again and recommend them highly.Thank you Dogwalker Etc!The Kansky Family More...

We use dwe every time we go out of town. Specifically have had Sean stay and he has done a superb job. He goes above and beyond helping out w all the animals. Neighbors report seeing them frequently on their runs and animals always seem happy when we return and to see him on other visits. At first I was a little hesitant to let a stranger in but have had no problems and feel very confident in ther services. Great to have some one in the house too when were off island. Definitely will use again next time we travel More...

Dogwalker Etc is the best pet sitting service on the island! (can't comment on the actual dog walking part as I only have cats! ) My fiance and I travel quite a bit so its no surprise that we eventually ran out of the "friend card" and had to get a professional to watch our precious babies. Dogwalker sets you up with a sitter based on location and animal type/the kinds of services needed. They are extremely good about responding to your e-mails and contacting the sitter/walker, usually all the logistics are set up within a couple of days. The very first visit your sitter comes over and meets the animals, you get to show them where everything is (food, litter, cleaning supplies, trash etc) and watch them interact with the animals which of course is quite an important part of the process. They will take down numerous notes to make sure they know anything and everything they need to take the best care of the animals possible while you are away.The sitter we always request is Shannon, I think it has been over a year that we have been using her services. She is a very sweet girl and my cats love her, as to them she is always the signal for food and play! She comes over every morning we are away, feeds the kitties, freshens up the litter and plays with them for about 15 minutes. She knows that I am an overprotective "mother" so she usually snaps a couple photos of the beasts and texts them to me which really brightens up my day! Shannon has animals of her own so I always know that my cats are in really good hands! She also leaves cute little notes each day, kind of like a "diary" of what the cats have been up to that I get to read once I return back home. Shannon is not just a sitter, she is so much more!! She also brings in the mail, feeds the fish (my fiance has a fish tank), and waters the plants!! Could not have asked for a more trustworthy and dependable individual to take care of things while we are gone! If you are going off the island and need sitting/walking services, do not hesitate to contact dogwalker!! They give you a peace of mind while you are away and lots of love, affection and play time for your animals! Without a doubt, next trip I take I will be using their services again! More...

Dog Walkers Etc has been an answer to my prayers.  I have tried several other places for my dog and had some dissappointments along the way before finding the perfect company that really cares, not only for the physical well being but for the emotional separation from their owner well being.  They have several options for you to choose from. They really care about wanting to meet the needs of you and your pet. I can now go on trips knowing she is in good hands.  Gerhild is my Sofie's dogsitter and she is so loving to my baby. Yes Sofie doesn't realize she is a dog. Gerhild knows Sofie is nervous in the beginning and she will comfort her and give her the love and attention to make her feel safe. She sends me pictures to show how much fun she is having with her dogs and gives me reports on how she is behaving. One of my request was if Sofie could sleep on the bed with whoever watches her and Gerhild allows Sofie to sleep on the bed with her. When I come to pick Sofie up, before she sees me I see her running around the yard, tail up and just so confident and so happy.  She is able to run around in the Gerhild home and able to access the yard. Gerhild also takes her on walks with her dogs.  I am so pleased with Gerhild, she really has a way with dogs and they sense her love and calmness. Gerhild treats you and your dog better than family, Sofie and I are so blessed to have found her through Dog Walkers Etc. More...

We are grateful to have found a great pet sitting service and pet sitter for our senior cat who can be very skittish due to our recent move.  Rachel won the trust of our cat right away with her calm manner.  We love the text messages and photos from Rachel that all is ok, plus daily written log is kept for our review when we return home.  Our cat is well-cared for and that is reassuring to anxious pet parents!  Thank you Rachel and Dogwalker Etc staff.  Happy Holidays.

For several years I have hired Dogwalker etc to walk and stay with my dogs when I'm out of town. In those years I have seen Erin build her service up into a very nice set of services for pet owners. For example, I've gotten spoiled with the dogwalkers' notes & eagerly read about the events from bird chasing to elimination.We've had increasingly better quality, more knowledgeable walkers except for one recent walker who wasn't very focused on this job. Another that we had was so trustworthy I felt totally confident in her abilities to handle anything that might come up.The only downside is occasionally Erin and I have a different philosophy about our business dealings but we always resolve them to our satisfaction. On the other hand, I've seen Erin take a role in advocating for pets in various community events. It's great to see her animal dedication in action!The main thing is these dogwalkers and sitters are caring for my two dogs well and I feel comfortable with them. The best part is that the days my dogs are walked they are a little happier, and when I return from a trip they're happy and healthy ;c)Highly recommended! More...

Arf,Arf af arf arf, arf arf.  Translation:  Dogwalker Etc is the best!  We've used them for house sitting for both quick overnight as well as extended stays.  They are extremely detailed, and obviously go through a thorough hiring process for their sitters.We've had "Aunty Barbara" sit our home in Mililani on a number of occasions.  How did we know she was the "right one?"  We didn't.  Our dogs and cat did.  When Barbara came over for the initial meeting, our dogs howled and whimpered from the moment she came into the house.  Our cat immediately jumped into her lap. This is the same greeting usually reserved for our closest friends and family.  Our animals knew right away that Aunty was a good one!I recommend highly.  In summary, arf arf arf, arf arf arf!!!!p.s.  meow meow!

This review is for their pet sitting services only.  I have not used their dogwalking services.  My dog is part of my family.  I absolutely adore her.  It was difficult for me to find a place where I felt comfortable leaving her, especially for an extended amount of time.  Through Yelp, I saw the good reviews for Dogwalker Etc and decided to give them a try for a trip I was taking to an outer island.  I spoke to Erin on the phone, and we discussed different options for my dog.  I decided it was best for my dog to stay at a home without other pets.  We arranged for my dog to stay with Barb.First I had a "meet and greet" session with Barb to see how my dog would get along with her.  Barb is such a sweetheart.  She's very genuine, and truly cares about my dog.  I knew my dog would be in great care.  Barb sent me text updates periodically, which was fantastic.  Since that first trip, my dog has stayed with Barb twice more (once for an extended trip - about 10 days), and she gets so excited when we arrive at Barb's place.Overall, my experience has been fantastic.  I couldn't ask for more.  Some may feel it's a little pricey - about $60/day for in home, private pet sitting, but to me it's absolutely worth it.  I don't have to worry about my little friend at all while I'm gone.  I would highly recommend Dogwalker Etc to anyone looking for pet sitting.

By far the best dog walking/ pet sitting service I have ever used.  They always go above and beyond.  I wanted to surprise my fiance with a small trip for her birthday.  She is usually the one who makes all the arrangements but in order for me to make it a surprise, I contacted them myself.  They could not have been more friendly and helped me keep it a surprise.  Our dog walker, Rachel, is by far the best and Roxy and her dog Steeler couldn't get along any better.  I tell all my friends about them and would not trust anyone else with my dog.  By far the best and your pets will be more than well cared for while you are away.

Couldn't be better if they tried. I should have written this review ages ago, but at least in the meantime I've been telling people in person how great they are. Anyway...Back in April (I told you it's been awhile) my husband and I had to head back east for a wedding. We hired dogwalker, etc to come watch our cats. Franny came out beforehand to meet us and the kitties, go over what was needed and expected, the basics. She's a sweetheart and I felt instantly at ease as she started petting Buddy Motorcycle. I'm an admitted crazy cat lady and had a ton of questions/concerns but she answered them all and even had a few I hadn't thought of. Anyway, every day she came to visit she took pictures of my cats and texted them to me with status updates. --Seriously, imagine how crazy I seemed being excited for photo of my cats coming to my phone during a wedding. Amazing.--We came home to two happy, well-fed cats and will DEFINITELY be using this service, and Franny, again if we have to leave the cats again. More...

I really appreciate the service.  My husband became sick suddenly requiring hospitalization & bed rest at home for 6 weeks.  dog walkers took care of my 6 mos old King Charles Spaniel daily for 6 weeks & then I continued their services 2 days per week & will continue to do so.  Erin & staff are loving animal caretakers!  Each week Maka Nui is so happy for his ride to Manoa to be cared for by dog walker  etc....thank you Erin & staff for your service!!!!!l More...

FABULOUS service!  EASY to make reservations!  employees have GREAT attitudes!I have used dogwalker etc. on several occasions each time the same employee was assigned to my account which was great because she was familiar with the dogs' routines.  Michelle services the Kahala, Kaimuki, and surrounding areas and she is fantastic!  She has a winning personality and absolutely adores my dogs (and they love her!) and hit it off immediately with them.  Each day the dogs are walked a note is written summarizing how the walk and playtime panned out and whether they were well-behaved.  I have four dogs of various ages and varying breeds and Michelle can handle all of them!  dogwalker etc. has done a terrific job matching Michelle with my dogs.  Their website is simple to use and reservations can be made online.  This company exceeded my expectations and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dogwalker or a pet sitter.

Forget buying your pooch or kitties the latest fashions..the best way to show your love for your critter is by giving them the best care you can when you are away. Rudy is my baby and I am a nervous helicopter Mommy, but Dogwalker Etc. is the perfect piece of mind. In the  two years that I have been usig Dogwalker Etc., I have had two regular sitters, both of whom were warm and conscientious and went out of their way to make sure I knew everything was OK..they call, they send pictures..I can tell from Rudy's smile that he is happy to have his Dogwalker Etc. friend there!  So I say..BRING ON THE VACATION!
