  Riley and Hobie

Riley and Hobie

I can’t say enough about how Lucky Paws has given me the peace of mind to leave my two dogs at home and know they are lovingly cared for in familiar surroundings. Denise and Tia have not only visited my boys on time, but actually took Riley on a field trip to Petco for treats and toys. When I needed a pet sitter for several days and nights, the service was reliable and competent. Not only did I get text updates, but photos as well, reassuring me that the boys were excersised, happy, and enjoying every minute with their mommy substitute. As if that wasn’t enough, I returned from my trip to find the sheets and towels used were laundered, and the bed made up as if there had been no one here. Mail was neatly stacked in the kitchen and knowing someone was here should there be a problem with the house gave me even more reason to relax while away. Thank you Lucky Paws. Riley and Hobie thank you too

 Pastrami

Pastrami

I had to take an emergency trip one week, and was worried sick about what I was going to do with my demanding puppy, Pastrami. I asked around and, through word of mouth, found out about Denise. I left my house, arrived at the airport to depart, and received a picture message of my puppy playing with another dog. I continued to recieve pictures such as this during my trip; this created the sense that my dog was in good hands. I have used Denise since then for a trip to Martha’s Vineyard. I felt that my dog was enjoying that vacation as much as I was. Given the service is peace of mind, Denise is indeed a great bargain.

Tex, Savannah, and Goat

Denise is the leader of the pack! She is fabulous. All you have to do is take a look at the photos to realize that the dogs are having more fun than their owners are. The dogs in her care have plenty of playmates and are doing all the things they love. Thank goodness they have such an incredible friend and protector. Thank you Denise. Woof!

 Murphy and Lucy

Murphy and Lucy

We are seldom able to have a day away due to both work and our devotion to our pups. I got SO LUCKY one day meeting Denise on my way to the bank. She was walking two of her charges. They were so comfortable with her and genuinely happy, I thought they were her pups. We chatted, I immediately liked her and both saw and sensed her devotion to her job. One week later we scheduled a day trip. Denise came to meet Murphy and Lucy....Murphy is usually stingy with kisses, but he was all over her, smiling from ear to ear....Lucy couldn’t get closer. We felt so secure leaving them in her care. Denise sent pictures of their happy day together....we came home to two exhausted, happy and spoiled pups.

I am so grateful for LUCKYPAWS!!!! My partner and I had a scheduling conflict, and we needed someone to let our doggies out and feed/water them at noontime. I asked friends and neighbors, but everyone was busy/working/etc. At the last minute, I called Denise on my way to a meeting. She didn’t even hesitate! I breathlessly yammered out unintelligible instructions, gave her the coordinates for the incredibly complicated hidey hole for the house key, and raced into my dumb meeting. Denise texted me later, letting me know how the dogs were: fed, watered, let out, played with, and happy! She even threw in extra love for the cat—GRATIS! Thanks so much for putting up with our last minute shenanigans! You are AWESOME!!!

 Bella

Bella

Denise is truly a remarkable human being and I recommend her without reservation. We have a 7 month old lab puppy named Bella. Denise started walking Bella when she was just 12 weeks old. From the first moment we met Denise, we knew that she is someone special. Thanks to Denise we have a well socialized-playful puppy who has a variety of experiences each week. Play dates, long walks, pool time and car rides are just a few of Bella’s favorite midday activities. Denise often sends videos of Bella playing and I have received hundreds of emails sharing pictures of the day’s events. Denise is one of the most caring and trustworthy people that I know and I do not know what I would do without her. Thank you Denise!

My very picky Weimaraner ADORES Denise~ and she is one high-maintenance diva! I have never trusted anyone in my home (and ESPECIALLY with my beloved girl) until I met Denise. She puts the R in reliable & the T in trustworthy. To call Denise merely a ‘petsitter’ is to completely undervalue her. She is as warm, caring & as personable as they come. She takes care of your baby(s) like they’re her very own.
I feel lucky that my dog still finds me worthy of her after being with Denise all day!

We’re thrilled to have found Denise...a true dog-lover and a wonderful woman. From the moment we met, I knew she was the right choice in hiring an in-home petsitter. Our 13 year old Lab/Boxer Zoe loved her immediately. Denise understood her (and our!) quirks.
Leaving Zoe has always been a challenge for us and her. No more! We returned home to a relaxed and happy dog.
Feel confident in entrusting the care of your beloved pet to Lucky Paws. You won’t be disappointed.

 Winnie

Winnie

It started off like any cheesy horror film. It was butterflies and ice cream when we picked up Winnie from the airport as a puppy. The first few days were easy as pie. Then like clockwork, we realized she was going to be a spitfire. Winnie has an insatiable need for destruction; she can sense your favorite pair of sunglasses or the most expensive piece of furniture in the house. We brought her to puppy kindergarten and she passed by the skin of her teeth, but her ‘difficult behavior’ continued. I came across Denise’s name from a co-worker and she has been a godsend. Denise has the ability to bring the best out in even the craziest of pups and I could not imagine what we would do without her. She sends pictures and updates of her visit with Winnie, which can brighten even the dreariest days at work. Denise has become part of the family and by far Winnie’s best friend. Winnie is a better dog and we are better parents because of Denise. She rocks beyond a shadow of a doubt. :)

 Dolly

Dolly

I met Denise when I adopted Dolly at The Potter League and asked for a dogwalker. In my ten years in Middletown she was the best of friends to both Dolly and myself. Her many acts of kindness to both of us amazed me. Since Dolly, with a very turbulent and painful past, could not be off leash, Denise invented a 30 foot rope to run behind and let her feel “free”. Denise has lived in my house and been an irreplaceable friend, I would trust her with anything I own or love. Now I live in Spain and we miss her so much. You and your pet will be very fortunate to have her in your life.
