I would like to second (and third!) the JPK9 nomination! Jen Jones and her team have been taking our dog to the park most days since the week we adopted her. JPK9 is the best!

I third the nomination for Alexis and the Emerald Neckleash!
Bruce Fondren July 01, 2012 at 06:08 PM
I nominate all the pet care operations in JP/Roslindale- as the owner of Woof and Meow, it is a joy to work in a neighborhood without a sense of competition- to create a best contest is a no brainer as everybody does a great job!! ( sorry if that defeats a contest mentality JP Patch). I will say we should nominate who has the best clients..there I would say Woof and Meow, cuz we are only as good as they are to work with...and they are the greatest! But I presume Cheryl, Alexis, Jen, Karen, Woof It, Doggie Au Pair, Nikki, etc..would nominate their client's as well...Pet care in JP simply rocks no matter how you look at it!

MIchael Shores - http://www.thedogwalker.freeiz.com/. He's a kind, responsible person, and we trust him implicitly. He takes incredible care of our 3 dogs (2 large, 1 small) and provides excellent housesitting services and also will board at his home.
Kristi Paradis July 01, 2012 at 09:23 PM

Alexis at Emerald Neckleash! Not only is she a natural, she is deeply committed to our canine family's well-being as well as the earth that we all inhabit. I truly love the company's philosophy and practices of hiring locally, reducing carbon emissions, recycling, and use of biodegradable poop bags. Alexis is very reliable and trustworthy: a true professional. Communication about my "kids" is so important to me and Alexis is very responsive and detailed. Top notch. The. Best.
Courtney Radcliff August 13, 2012 at 01:49 PM
Alexis and everyone at Emerald Neckleash are the greatest!!!

Dinyee Boose- She's a dog TRAINER who walks dogs. I wouldn't trust any walker but Dinyee, and she definitely knows dogs. I think we're even getting a bit of free behavior modification, to boot! Dinyee isn't someone who thinks "gee, I'm unemployed, and dog-walking-- that sounds like fun." She's SERIOUS. She auditioned me and my sweetie to see how WE handled our dogs before she took them on. I used to own a dog-walking and pet-care business, and I wouldn't trust any of the morons who bring a tangle of dogs to a dog-park and then pay no attention (or smoke a jay? are you kidding me?) while the dogs get aggressive with each other off-leash. Either those walkers lie to their insurance companies, or they aren't covered, cause there ain't no way they found a company to cover that.

I just checked-- Dinyee's company is Brookside Walk & Train. http://www.brooksidewalkandtrain.com/ And perfect reviews at Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/brookside-walk-train-jamaica-plain
