  • Thank you, Ernie! You are truly exceptional and I so appreciate you working us into your schedule.

  • We were very nervous about leaving our two cats while we went on our first long vacation out of town, because of a previous bad experience. Ernie was recommended to us, and at our first meeting, we were put completely at ease. We could see he is genuinely fond of animals and they loved him. He visited as requested, and sent us pictures and commentary on how they were doing. I can not recommend him more highly. Really great service.

  • Ernie came to us as a referral and we're so thankful! He was prompt to respond, so professional and made time quickly to meet our new pup and current pup. Ernie listened to our needs and came to our first meeting with all the tools to help us train our pup and welcome her to our family with a smooth transition. He offered suggestions on training products and showed us how to use them effectively to get our Maggie to understand voice and hand commands. Ernie didn't drag out training to make money. He was efficient and taught us the basics until he saw that we had it down and graduated Maggie. We would call on him again in a heartbeat and hope to stay in touch with him as he's local and lives up the road. We will certainly reach out to use his other services in the future should we need a ride for our dogs to the vet or are stuck for a walker. Ernie is a wonderful resource for all things pets, he's kind and caring and someone you can feel really good about leaving your four legged baby with.

  • I've had Ernie pet sit and walk my 150 pound sheep dog and take care of my cat. He's been with us for about a year now. Ernie is very accommodating to our ever changing schedule . There isn't anyone more reliable, trustworthy, caring or qualified to take care of my pets. I highly recommend him!!!!!!

  • We hired Ernie to help with our very active Cavachon puppy. From the start I could tell that Ernie was trustworthy, reliable, and well qualified (I mean, he's pet CPR certified! And has a custom pet safety device in his van!). Within a week or two, Ernie taught our puppy the commands "Sit", "Stay", "Off", "Come", "Down", etc. He was completely reliable - always showing up on time, doing more than necessary, giving us detailed reports of his visit. Within an hour Ernie managed to walk, exercise, play with, and train our dog as well as check for health issues, administer medicine when necessary, and advise us on how to best care for her. Our little puppy gets very excited when she sees Ernie. On a personal level, Ernie is one of the finest human beings I've ever met. If everyone was like Ernie, the world would be a better place. is a bargain at twice the price - if your pet needs some TLC, you will not be disappointed if you give him a try.

  • Can't say enough good things about Ernie! Takes incredible care of our pets & goes well above & beyond his job description. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who would prefer in-home care for their pets.

  • Tom and I are very impressed with your care of our fur babies! Thanks again!

  • If you are looking for someone trustworthy, affordable and is willing to treat your pet as if it was his own look no further. We have had Ernie feed, walk, play and train with our Yellow Lab since she was 10 weeks old and she absolutely adores him as do we. He goes above and beyond for the hour time that he spends with our little princess and always provides pictures/updates of how their time was spent which helps a lot when you are at work all day wondering how your pet is doing. I would recommend Ernie to anyone looking for help with their dog, he is truly excellent at what he does!

  • Ernie is the best! He's always there for us whether we have questions about our puppy or need him last minute. He's so reliable. We couldn't ask for someone better to have watch her while we are at work.

  • I have a Pit Bull that loves the family, however very protective with other people. Ernie came to visit several times to meet and get to know Chunk before they spent time alone. Ernie was a true pro in the steps he took to secure Chunk’s trust. Now Ernie is part of Chunk’s family. Thank you, Ernie!!
