Stable Hands Pet Care Testimonials

“Our dog Charlie loved working with David! She is a high-energy lab who needed a mid-day walk daily. We always felt confident with David taking care of her. She was prompt, reliable, and flexible. When she had CCL surgery and needed extra attention and sensitivity during her walks, we knew David could take care of her. Working with him gave us great peace of mind at work or away.”

Tyler W.

“David and Lara have been taking care of my two dogs and cat for about two years. They have always done a great job. My dogs love them and it is such a comfort to me to know that they are being well taken care of. David and Lara are extremely dependable, responsible, and go out of their way to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend them to take care of any type of pet!”
