If your car drivers are going to speed, tailgate, weave in and out of traffic without signaling , and cut other cars off on the highway (I-395 S, 11/30/19 @2:30 pm) you might wish to remove the identification sign from your vehicle. The driver may not care about himself, but he/she put others at risk.

They have done a great job with my puppy! I love that they keep the lines of communication open with me.

I ran into Josh during one of my many lunchtime dashes home to walk my puppy, Brave. Josh was kind and honest. Brave took to him right away. Josh works with my crazy military schedule and is very respectful of my requests as a overprotective puppy mom. I had surgery at one point and Josh had no problem working around my schedule due to my inability to leave my apartment. It got to a point where Brave would instinctively walk to the door at the same time every weekday and wait for Josh to stop by...even on days he was not going to get walked. He just LOVES his walks. I also noticed that my puppy does not pull on the leash anymore ever since working with Josh. Pooch Pals are highly recommended. Every pet owner I meet in my neighborhood hears about how awesome they are with my little guy. I plan to take advantage of their obedience training in the future. Thanks Pooch Pals. You guys are a godsend.

Josh has been helping me with my dog, George, for six months now. George is somewhat aggressive and does not do well in a boarding situation, so my primary need was to know I could rely on someone to stay in my home with George if I needed to go out of town. So not only does Josh walk George three times a week, but he also stays overnight on occasion. George took to Josh immediately and behaves beautifully when Josh is with him. I have absolutely no worries about George when he is in Josh's care and trust Josh completely.

"Pooch Pals" has been absolutely awesome. We have used them primarily for long term house and dog sitting. Josh has done awesomely with our detailed instructions for feeding, walking, house issues, etc. We stayed in contact the entire time and needless to say it made us feel secure and happy. We are working on a photo web update so that we can see the boys................as we miss them so much. The boys seemed very happy, responsive and comfortable with Josh. When we got home we could see that they were very responsive to him and also very happy to see us; so, all was well with the world and we felt so incredibly comforted with their time with Josh in our house. He responded to all issues, maids, mail pick up, trash requirements, etc. All went well.

I am so glad that I found Josh Hickey from Pooch Pals! I recently moved to the area and rescued 2 dogs, so I needed a midday dog walker. Both of my dogs have their own quirks and needs, and Josh was able to recognize and address their issues immediately. One is learning to socialize with other dogs, and Josh was able to address her fear aggression and introduced her to other dogs starting on his first day with her!
He is both professional and reassuring. When I traveled out of town for 5 days, I knew they would be safe with him. I was still nervous about leaving them for the first time, so I asked him to send me updates. Each day I received a text telling me that my dogs were fine and doing well. This helped me to enjoy my vacation, knowing that they were safe and enjoying their time with Josh.
Josh always answers my questions, addresses my concerns, and responds to me in a very timely manner. He is extrememly professional and polite. I can tell that he truly cares about my dogs, and I have seen that my dogs are very happy to see him when he comes over. His prices are extremely reasonable and his service is excellent. I highly recommend Josh Hickey and Pooch Pals!

Fargo has benefitted immensely by Pooch Pals care, training, and attention. Josh has been a steady, calming influence in Fargo's demeanor. Thank you for taking such good care of him!
