Sniff and Go has been caring for our two adult Whippets since 2012. Over the years, Emi, Paul and their team have become so much more than dog walkers — they’ve become family — supporting us and our dogs through multiple moves and corresponding behavioral issues, vacations, business trips, unexpected delays at the office, illnesses, bouts of separation anxiety (for us and the dogs), vet visits, illness and the loss of one of our boys.
For example, when we moved into a very fussy condo building one of our dogs developed a severe case of separation anxiety. Unbeknown to us, he howled every time we left the apartment, quickly drawing complaints from our new neighbors and a warning from the building’s management company. At our wits end, we tried everything — daycare, drugs, changes to our routine. Eventually, we installed drop cams throughout the apartment and Emi agreed to sit at a nearby coffee shop to monitor our dogs and intervene when the anxiety devolved into crying/howling. Breaking the cycle really helped alleviate his anxiety and was the only thing that made it possible for us to stay in that apartment.
When one of our dogs developed terminal bladder cancer, Sniff and Go provided compassionate support and care when we and our beloved pet needed it the most. They helped maintain a complicated medication schedule, they were flexible as we needed to add more frequent walks, they cleaned up messes, they connected us to additional resources like pet hospice care and they cried and grieved with us as when it was time to say goodbye.
I’ll be the first to admit, we are neurotic when it comes to our dogs. With Sniff and Go, we’ve known that our dogs were being cared for — that they were getting the basics — food, walks, potty breaks, medicine, etc…. AND love and attention based on our dogs’ personalities and needs over time. Sniff and Go always has the right touch — being firm and in control when our dogs were younger and wanted to kill every skateboarder or roller blades in sight, to being extra gentle, patient and compassionate as our senior dog becomes more fragile and requires slower walks.
Simply put, after living in multiple cities and trying countless pet care services over the years, we can honestly say that Sniff and Go has been THE BEST. Whether you’re training a new puppy or caring for an elderly dog, Sniff and Go has what it takes to make your life easier and put your mind at ease.
We love our clients!
and hope that you become one as well!
