From Oren and Olivia:
 

Paula is an intuitive caretaker and has been a big part of our dog, Toby's, life. Toby is not always the easiest, but every time we leave him with Paula we are able to relax and know that he is in good hands. From post-surgery care, to midday walks and longer term pet-sitting, Paula has been a huge help to us. Plus, Toby just loves her and Ty [Paula's dog].

From Paula and Brady (and Tucker too!):
 

Thank you, Paula, for making our vacation more relaxing, knowing the boys were safe and sound! Those two knuckleheads mean a lot to us.

From Ethan and Jennifer:
 

Paula has been excellent to work with! We have a Vizsla that's about 1 year old that absolutely loves his time with Paula and the gang. She's been great with a puppy and helping us reinforce certain commands. She is very accommodating, and willing to be flexible with our often crazy and unpredictable schedules. We've left our pup with her while we've been out of town and have felt so comfortable doing so. Paula is very generous with her time and gifts for our pup! You can tell she genuinely loves our little fur baby! Thank you, Paula! 

From Amy:
 

While my puppy was recovering from a car accident, I had already made plans to leave town for a week.  The thought of leaving my puppy was tearing me up.  I had to find a dog-lover who could spend the night at our house, take my puppy to therapy sessions, and give him lots of exercise.  Such a person was hard to find, but she is Paula.  Gus liked Paula right from the start, and he loved playing with Ty, Paula’s patient dog.  She let me know how he was doing from time to time, so I wouldn’t worry.  She massaged his hurt limbs and tried to relax him.  She took him walking at his favorite places.  She left the house in order, and she even cleared dog poops from the yard.

Since then, I have asked for Paula’s help many time, often at the last minute, and she always tried to accommodate us.  She is reliable and responsible, and I recommend her enthusiastically.  Her rates are reasonable.

Paula is a master of many trades.  Besides caring for animals, she teaches and assists people in organizing and downsizing their spaces.  She also administers healing massage.

From Francesca:

We absolutely LOVED our dog sitting experience with Paula.  I spoke to her and emailed several times before we met in person and did 2 "meet and greets" with her and the dogs.  She is AMAZING - very calm, mature, and does 'anxiety work' with dogs.  Tremendously competent.

We were going away for 2 weeks and agonized over what to do with the boys.  As our trip date drew closer the reality of leaving the dogs behind and having a stranger in our home started to freak me out.  I emailed Paula about my growing unease and she sent me about 9 references.  Everyone returned my calls and had nothing but fabulous things to say.  
 

You couldn't even tell she had been here - vacuumed, did the sheets, texted us and sent us pics of the dogs while we were away.  She has a 9 year old dog TYRUS, who is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Mastiff...sounds huge, but he's about the size of a lab.  Ty and Paula both stayed at the house (which was fine with us after we met him) and it was fabulous.  He is insanely calm and sweet...we call him the yoga/zen dog.
 

Simply put - she's great!
