I’ve always been thrilled
The dogs got great walks every day
Everyone at Presidential Pets feels like part of the family
Fantastic and Super Flexible
I can’t recommend PPC highly enough. When I started using their service, my little guy was scared of his own shadow. PPC was very understanding of his needs, and I think they contributed a lot to him coming out of his shell and becoming a more social dog. Now he will practically fly off the couch in excitement every time the walkers come over.
We LOVE Presidential Petcare!
They make sure each dog gets the attention they need and make sure all 12 paws are wiped before they come into the house 🙂 We get an amazing note with pictures each day that detail the visit. We have also used Presidential Pet Care for overnights and, other than the frequent notes, you never would know that they were in the house. We truly trust our home and our dogs with Presidential Petcare and are so thankful that we found them! Scheduling through their system is super easy and Lauren is super responsive to emails/requests. We have been using them for 2 years now and will continue to as long as we live in the area.
The staff is amazing!
