Sharon and her team are wonderful. Highly recommend 4 Legs and Leash. Extremely dependable. Quickly learned what works best for our dog. Online portal makes it a breeze to schedule services.
Our Sheltie Jenny always vacations at 4 Legs and a Leash. We know she gets treated like one of the family. She enjoys the large fenced yard and gets plenty of walks for exercise. We live in a ranch home so Jenny is afraid of stairs, but is used to sleeping with us, SO – Sharon or Bob carry her up to their second floor to sleep and then carry her down in the morning – amazing!! We would never trust anyone else with our “baby”. When we are gone for a long day, we can also count on 4 Legs and a Leash to come over to feed her and take her out for walks. Now that we have adopted a cat, I’m sure she will be a client as well.”
If you are questioning what company to take care of your fur-babies when taking a well-deserved vacation, look no further than 4 Legs and a Leash! I have used other companies in the past but none have compared to the professionalism and value I found in 4 Legs and a Leash. Working with Sharon is a pleasure, our 2 cats were treated like her own. We also felt very comfortable with having Sharon in our home while we were away. We will definitely use 4 Legs and a Leash again.
You can’t beat Sharon’s service. I have two spoiled Boston Terriers and they love her. What I love is the freedom I have with short-notice dog assistance. I trust her with my home and my babies. What else is there to say?
I tried to schedule with three different dog walkers before I thankfully found 4 Legs and a Leash. The communication has been excellent! They came out to my house for an initial visit to meet my dogs. Sharon was wonderful and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable with her service. Scheduling is extremely easy through their app and I get a message daily after the visit. We have been extremely pleased!
Remarkable Service by people who LOVE Pets! Sharon and her team walk my 2 energetic pups. She does background checks on her team and ensures the pups are well cared for on their adventures. Great service for a fair price!
4 Legs and a Leash took great care of our cat while on vacation. Just before we left, our cat fell ill so I was concerned about leaving him. The owners, Sharon and Bob, gave him his meds and brought him to his vet appointments while we were gone. They sent updates and pictures with every visit. They were a huge help. I will definitely call them again!
We have used 4 Legs & a Leash for the last few years for our two kitties. The owner, Sharon, has always done such a great job taking care of our fur babies any time we’ve been on vacation. She sends daily photos, updates, and lots of kitty love which gives us such peace of mind while we’re away. Highly recommend this service!
Sharon and Bob are wonderful with the animals. Their place is like a resort for dogs. I loved having them text pictures to me while I was on vacation. They are kind people and give the dogs plenty of exercise in the yard. Their place is clean and pet safe and friendly. Our dog Sandy is old and doesn’t like to socialize. That wasn’t a problem for Bob and Sharon. They just kept her inside or let her lay on the deck to enjoy being outside while the other dogs ran around. Their prices are fair and I think the best part of 4Legs and a Leash is the environment the dogs are exposed to. No nasty cages or 4 cement walls to play in for 30 minutes. Sharon and Bob give the dogs lots of love and attention but they also watch them to be sure the playing doesn’t get out of hand. They know animals are not always predictable and take time in evaluating the dogs they allow to stay at the “resort”. Their facebook page shows most of the dogs smiling. I don’t think you’ll see that at typical dog boarding places. I’ve not used their walking service but know that they are reliable and trustworthy people. I highly recommend 4 Legs and a Leash.
I have to say how wonderful Bob and Sharon are at 4 Legs and a Leash, Inc. My dog Elle has been going on vacation here for 5 years. As I dropped her this year, Bob greeted me at the gate to get her. With no hesitation, she walked up to Bob and wanted to go play because she knew where she was and was excited to be there. It makes me so happy to know she is taken great care of and loves to be on her own vacation spot every year and some other times. Also, I had an emergency this time and needed to stay a few more nights. Sharon and Bob were so accommodating in keeping her a few more days. I can’t thank them enough for being there for us. I highly recommend bringing your dog here for their vacation while you are vacationing too!! Great people and Great place that feels like home!
Sharon has sat for and walked me a lot. My Mom says I get overly excited sometimes butSharon brings me biscuits – who wouldn’t be excited? Sharon is always on time and, after I sniff her and give her kisses, she puts on my necklace and we head out. Sharon tells me when it is time to sniff and time to walk. We even run sometimes. I hate to see her leave but I know she’ll be back. One time I stayed overnight with Sharon. Dakota, Paige and I played in her big backyard. She has tons of toys and she even has a pond. I’m not allowed to go in anymore though, the fish are scared of me. Don’t tell my Mom but I think I like my walks with Sharon the best. I wonder when she’ll have her next all day meeting?”
4 Legs and a Leash has been our trusted partner in caring for our pets for years. They’ve walked our dogs when we were at work and have done house visits for our cat when we were away. Sharon and her team are always professional, responsive, and most of all caring. I LOVE that they text me pictures of my pets when they provide services.
We have used 4 Legs and a Leash for a couple of years now for regular dog walks. They are reliable, very responsive, and have been flexible with our ever-changing work schedules. They send a note after every walk with a quick update which we always appreciate. Highly recommend!!
We have been w/ 4 Legs for a while and are so happy to have found them. Yes they are reliable and responsive, but most importantly they are amazing with our pup and he loves them. They are good trustworthy people, 10/10 highly recommended.
We’ve been using 4 legs and a leash for the past 5 yrs. Our chocolate lab Walter waits anxiously by the door for his daily walks. I would highly recommend using them to take care of your pup when you’re not around. It’s like having a family member walking your dog. They are simply THE BEST! Thank you, Sharon and her staff❤️🐶❤️
Scheduling is easy, reliable & professional. The 4 Legs team is amazing – they cared very gently for my 18 year old senior lady & have been equally wonderful with my nervous adopted pups. They are a rare and wonderful team!
