We've only had good experiences with Metropawlitan. Our dog has been well-taken care of -- particularly, when we're traveling but can't take her along with us. Metropawlitan's service has given us great peace-of-mind. We appreciate the owner's personal touch and interest in the well-being of our dog. We can always reach her easily. It's great to see the updates available from anywhere. More...
My wife and I strongly recommend Tails of the City. We live in Alexandria and have used Born to Run Pet Fitness's Epic Dog Excursions since September 2017. They have consistently exceeded our expectations, and that is why I have chosen their business for my first Google review.
The company takes our two girls to a nearby fenced in dog park, of our choosing, for almost two hours, three days a week. We know the dogs love the walker (Evon) by their reaction when she picks them up, and she is always excited to see them as well. In short, Evon is wonderful! She has a genuine concerns for our pups that is easily discernible. Before the first excursion, she conducted a visit to the house, met the dogs, and spent a considerable amount of time to ensure that she understood all of their quirks and preferences.
Our girls need more than the walk around the block (or even a leashed run); Evon keeps them engaged and running around the park so that they're ready for a nap upon their return (which is perfect). Within minutes of dropping them back at the house, she sends us a report of how the dogs did, the pick up and drop off times, and photos of them playing, which my wife and I enjoy seeing.
Tails of the City also has an easy to use online portal that lets you make changes to the visit (such as the length of time away from the house), all the way up to 24-hours before the visit. We really appreciate the flexibility of the scheduling system, as we can make changes easily and at any time. Furthermore, we prefer their automated payment system (one less thing to worry about), which is more efficient than writing a check each week, as with our last provider. Lastly, Evon is readily available to address our questions or requested changes, returning calls or emails very quickly.
In all, we are so pleased with the arrangement that we will soon increase the services from three to five days a week. I couldn't ask for more, and am grateful that they provide such a unique experience. I recommend them to anyone looking for dog care services in the area. Thank you! More...
What an outstanding experience we had in working with Tails of the City! I have worked with the owner, Thai, who is extremely responsive and dependable. There is no doubt why her business has been so successful for the past 16 years. Although we screen all of our sponsors, Tails of the City shines among the top tier of Pet Sitting professionals offering services well beyond of basic requirements of most prospective pet sitting customers. They offer Born to Run Fitness, which addresses the exercise needs of our four legged friends. They have also has outlasted most of their competition. (Being a publisher in the local pet industry we have found that many Pet Sitters are in and out of business in just 2 - 3 years, not registered with the State, not insured/bonded and have questionable reputations). Thai staffs all her areas within Maryland/DC & VA with professionals who serve all her customers reliably on time. And unlike many fly-by-night or spare time businesses, Tails of the City responsibly follows up with real-time texts and photos to confirm their visits. We are proud to have Tails of the City as one of our newest sponsors in our latest Maryland Pet Gazette directory in print and online! Rest assured knowing your pet will be cared for by one of the industry's finest. More...
This was our first time using Tails of the City for home boarding our two cats Molly and Bobo for two weeks over Christmas vacation. Thai Nguyen and her family were wonderful. They took excellent care of our babies and we loved the daily updates and photos they sent. We can't thank them enough and are so glad we found them (overheard someone at our vets office talking about them!!).
