What Our Clients Are Saying
Our 2.5 year old chocolate lab, Oakley, is very energetic and needs lots of love and attention. We travel often, and were struggling to find a place (or person) to care for him while we were out of town. After boarding him at multiple facilities, he always seemed to come home with some sort of sickness (kennel cough, etc.), which ended with a sad pup and a high vet bill. Cue Privileged Paws! We recently were heading out on a week long vacation and found a positive review of Privileged Paws on Nextdoor. So we decided to give it a shot and I am SO thankful we did! While we were gone, Jake came by the house (even after hours) 3+ times a day to make sure Oakley was taken care of. Oakley was able to stay in his own home, in his own bed, but yet Jake was there to take him on walks, feed, and play with him. Jake constantly updated us throughout the day with pictures and videos of Oakley, which of course, we LOVED to see! He even went swimming a few times :). Jake wore him out in just 15 minutes of ball play outside! I am SO beyond thankful to have found someone we trust with our Oakley, and someone that is in the neighborhood. I 100% recommend Privileged Paws!!!
Our dog adores Jake. He used to walk her, but she recently got hurt so Jake just comes over and loves on her. We are at work so much and it's nice that she gets some attention during the day. I would highly recommend Jake to anyone who needs an attentive and trustworthy dog walker/pet sitter. Thanks, Jake!
Jake is a savior. I was out of state and needed a dog sitter ASAP. My friend could not take care of Zeus. I found Privileged Paws when I did a Google search for "pit bull terrier doggie care." Jake was so great about helping me out at the last minute for the week & over the holiday weekend. I recommend Jake highly. He sends you videos of your pet and it’s so, so cute. For being out of state, this was a wonderful feeling!
Jake is an amazing gentleman! From the moment we "interviewed" Jake, Savvy and I knew he was going to be one of our favorite new friends forever. Savvy (my furbaby) adores Jake and is so giddy every time she sees him. Jake is extremely thorough in ensuring your furbaby receives all the love, fun, and gentleness they deserve. Jake has a gift with animals and I highly recommend him to care for your babies!!!! I am quite particular, so that goes to show the stellar quality he provides. Please contact Jake!!!
Jake's the first dog walker I've ever used and I couldn't imagine a better one. Elsie is 8 years old and is an Olde English bulldog who spent her first 6 years as a breeder in a mill (grrr). Giving her the best life for the rest of her life is my goal. Jake has helped me accomplish that.
For me: he never says no and I don't make it easy with much of my work travel being last minute. He has always accommodated any ask I have.
For Elsie: he loves her - at our meet and greet, he barely talked to me because he was too busy on the floor interacting with her. He sits on the couch, or floor, with her when it's too hot for her to walk. He sends me pictures and updates all the time. He cares about understanding her history.
If you've ever thought about using a dog walker, book Jake!
I can't begin to express what a difference Jake and his business have made in my life. I am a single, busy guy and have a German Shepherd. While I am home with my pup in the morning and at night, I feel bad leaving him during the day. Not only is Jake trustworthy and punctual, but my dog loved him from day 1. And Shepherds almost never love strangers right away. Not to mention if I need to leave for the weekend, Jake does overnights, and my best friend loves hanging out with him for the weekend! Thanks Privileged Paws!
Jake is the best! My dog Bond is waiting for hours by the front window before his scheduled walked in the morning. Jake and Bond have become great friends! I travel and work from home. Jake has been very flexible, always thinking about Bond's best interest. I trust and highly recommend Jake!!
Jake has taken great care of my ailing dog...and she's bonded with him which isn't easy for her to do. He's reliable, and I trust him to handle all my dog's quirks!
My two dogs await Jake's arrival with such enthusiasm daily! Jake really enjoys the dogs and they are in such good hands with him that it is a privilege to have him as our dog walker. He is courteous and reliable. He works with me to overcome undesirable behavior in my pups and provides me helpful feedback daily after their walk and play. His love of dogs and of his job are always evident and I recommend him very highly.
I am so very grateful to have found Jake! He has a heart of gold and a passion for animals that warms my heart. Jake walks my sweet boy "Jack" a few times a week and also does overnights when I'm traveling. I never worry when Jake is on the job....he goes above and beyond to communicate and takes care of my babies as if they were his own. Thank you Jake - you are a treasure!!
Jake has done a fantastic job! I had my knee replaced and needed help walking my chocolate lab, Snickers. Snickers loves him and starts eyeing the door when he knows it is about time for his friend, Jake, to come. Jake is very personable and is prompt with returning texts and calls. Highly recommend his services.
Where to start on a testimonial for someone who feels like a part of our family...Our dogs, Jackson and Dani, and our cat, Fen not only adore Jake, if they could count, they'd be counting down the hours to when they get to see him six days a week. We have ridiculously high expectations in a dog sitter/walker because our pets are our family, and Jake is the best of the best. Be it overnight visits (with long lists of detailed instructions I couldn't help but leave which he followed exactly, and I never worry leaving them in his care) to reliable on-time daily walking service, Jake is the highest caliber professional. His love for animals shines even amongst animal lovers, and he has a heart of gold. I'm proud to write this testimonial and would be honored to be a reference.
We are so happy that we came across Privileged Paws while searching for a dog walker for our dog Ace! Jake did an amazing job. Ace is always happy to see him and is looking forward to all of his scheduled walks and dog park trips. I don't have to rush home from work any more. I know that Ace is in good hands.
