Walter (the owner) and his team have walked my dogs over 250 times in the last 18 months. Always on time, handle the dogs expertly, great communicators, AND the dogs are always happy to see them. Very professional. GPS online tracking let’s you know where your dogs have actually gone. Highly recommend!
Carol Wood Sarasota, FL, 2023
We are completely confident and comfortable with the services that Walter and his team provides to us with our Goldendoodle and most recently, to our doodle’s canine cousins, a German Shepard + Great Pyrenees mix along with a pure bred German Shepard. Walter is accommodating and makes it all seem effortless. We are grateful to have Fetch’s support.
Karen Lyon - Sarasota, FL, 2023
We had a medical emergency with a family member that required us to leave town suddenly. Walter was able to board our dog who requires prescription meds and food due to skin allergies. It was such a relief to know that our pup was being cared for (and loved) while we were away. Walter sent us daily photos/videos and always quickly responded to our text/phone calls. One less thing we had to worry about! We would highly recommend Fetch Pet Care!
