Testimonials

We strive to provide the kind of pet sitting and dog walking service that leaves you thrilled, happy, overly satisfied and wow’d in every way.

I just wanted to say how pleased and happy I am with Michelle and how she stepped right in and took care of Maui. Her attitude, kindness, and honesty are remarkable. Just yesterday, she left thinking her 30 minute visit with Maui was over. When she clocked out, she realized she had 10 more minutes left with Maui’s visit and immediately went back inside to play with her without any reservation. That kind of employee is one if a kind and gives us comfort knowing Maui is in great hands when we can’t be there. Michelle has been flexible, understanding, and even there for advice when I’m questioning myself if I’m doing the right thing with Maui such as crating. Thank you again and we are extremely happy with your service. Hope to keep you guys around for a long time!

We adopted Miss Mia as a 14.5 year old rescue in April of 2018.  It became clear right away that Mia did not want to be crated, and I was struggling to rush home from work to walk her at lunchtime.  Five Paws and Teaghan to the rescue!  Teaghan taught Mia how to play chase and hide and seek, walks her and gives her lots of love and treats.  No more crate, and a very happy Mia! Teaghan was an integral part in helping Mia to recover from a serious illness in January.  Mia even looks for Teaghan on the weekends, they have a special relationship!

matildaJenn is an awesome owner and was so accommodating in establishing a puppy schedule that would ensure enough potty breaks to aid in crate training and include her mid-day feeding.  Also, once Matilda turned 9 months, she and the sitters helped me figure out how to move Matilda to a big girl schedule.  The sitters, now known as Aunt Melissa and Uncle Chris are so sweet, patient and loving to Matilda – she looks forward to their visits and has great adventures with them every time they visit with her.  They are both under Matilda’s spell so much so they will sit to have cuddles with her when she is being sleepy doodle bug!! They even helped her get used to the “Velcro Monster” (aka her winter coat) – pictured below.  I love the notes they leave after each visit.  The notes convey their enthusiasm for their job and you can truly see Matilda makes their day as much as they both make her day. The best part is my Matilda is always in her home – whether it’s the 2 walks/day or overnight visits when I travel on business. Jenn, Melissa and Chris are truly the 5th Paw!                – Kim B (Matilda’s mom)

ToryFive Paws is everything I could have asked for in a dog-walking service: they are reliable, accommodating, and friendly, and most importantly, all the walkers I’ve met show genuine affection for my dog. My regular walker is also knowledgeable about managing behavior issues (like pulling and barking at other dogs), and her influence has made my own walks easier too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have two shih tzu’s that are my babies.   I would not leave them with just anyone. A friend of mine had employed Five Paws to watch her cat while she was away, and she recommended them to me. I had put my babies in a kennel the last time we went away, and was so displeased with their visit that I vowed never to do it again. Five Paws is great. They come as much and as often and you need them. There has been several times when I’ve called them at the last minute and Jenn has always been available to take care of Gia and Jake (our furry kids). I was presently surprised to find write-ups of the visits. Who ate and who didn’t, who went to the bathroom and who did not…etc.. it was nice to know that everything went smoothly. I also have very helpful and caring neighbors. They let me know that they saw someone walking the dogs around the yard, and the person  seemed to be in touch with the dogs. Lastly, the cost. For having two dogs to catch after, the cost is reasonable. I recommend Five Paws to my family and friends.

We are so lucky to have found Jenn and the Five Paws team!  When Jenn came to our house for the initial intake process, we knew we had found a caring and competent service for our three furry family members. We request Lori each time we’re away and our cats love her! She does all the required stuff like feeding and litter, but she also brings in the mail! One visit this summer, we came home to flowers Lori had cut from her garden. Our favorite part of coming home after Five Paws has been here is reading the notes and updates Lori leaves for us! It’s really fun to read up on what these guys were up to in our absence. We love the peace of mind we get knowing that the team from Five Paws cares for our precious pets like they were their own. Communication is always great and the prices are unbeatable for the quality of the service. Five stars from the 5 of us!!

This summer’s vacation was the first time we used a pet service for our 6 cats. We had always had the luxury of a a family member being able to take care of our clan. Things change,people move away or work schedules don’t allow time. We were a little leery going in, but so glad in the end. Our cats were well taken care of and everything was perfect when we came home. I was so happy, I even emailed five paws the day after we returned to compliment them on the good job and thank them again. We have since used them a second time, with the same great results.

Trace

Five Paws has been walking our dog Trace daily for almost 6 months now and we could not be happier with their service! Val (our walker) always leaves the best notes.  I never worry about Trace knowing that they are there to take care of him. Jenn always accommodates MY last minutes changes.  I highly recommend Five Paws!

PeanutCappyWhen one of our cats was diagnosed with feline diabetes in spring 2012, we wondered if we would ever travel again (he requires twice/daily insulin shots). I’m so glad we decided to try Five Paws; their dependability and professionalism have far exceeded our expectations. From the in-home consultation to the detailed notes provided after each visit, Jenn and her staff have been phenomenal—and given us the peace of mind to travel again. I’m incredibly grateful for the care and love they have shown our kitties!

Shannon and Maddie

I have been using Five Paws services for almost 4 years now.  I am so happy I found them!  I have used them many times for their services.  I never worry about our two dogs when the are taking care of them.  The are always very kind to them.  Our lab is blind and it is comforting to know that she is being cared for by such kind people.
I have needed five paws a few times for last minute services and they always come thru for me.  I would recommend Five Paws to anyone looking for excellent dog care services.  I wouldn’t use anyone else.

RubyRomeo1Five Paws of Delaware County is “paws down” the best dog walking/sitting service I have experienced.  I have gone thru many others and from day one, Val (our walker) has been nothing short of spectacular. They are caring, sincere, and professional…Val is a dog lover through and through.

Tilly

The wonderful team at Five Paws has been caring for my dog, Tilly, for over a year. I can’t say enough good things about them. From the very first consultation with Jenn, the owner, I have felt at ease with Five Paws. Jenn is always prompt with responding to my schedule requests.  I am a nurse and work an irregular schedule. Five Paws has always honored every request I’ve made for potty breaks for Tilly, even when it’s short notice. Melissa and Val take care of Tilly like she’s their own pet, and keep me posted on their visits with Tilly through thorough notes. It’s clear how much they love animals. They go the extra mile to provide great care for Tilly.

MollyI couldn’t be happier with the choice I made to use Five Paws for my dog, Molly. Molly has diabetes and needs to be walked and given a “lunch” mid-day. I also needed a service that could have someone administer her insulin when needed. Molly loves her caretaker Melissa and I feel confident knowing that Melissa is so in tuned with Molly that she notices if Molly is drinking more or less  than usual or is behaving differently than normal and let’s me know in a note or text.  I went away recently and left Molly in Melissa’s care. It was so nice to go away and have a stress free weekend knowing Molly was getting her proper exercise, meals and medication. Another great aspect has been that when Melissa has not been available, Five Paws has always made sure that the backup caretaker they sent was just as able and caring.
Five Paws has made life less stressful for both Molly and me!!

SAMSUNGI’ve used 5 Paws since May 2012, two (2) weeks after I got my dog, a 4 month old Pit Bull rescue.  Ever since my dog walker has become a part of the family.  5 Paws and the staff has provided professional and courteous service on every visit.  A year and a half later I’m completely satisfied and I believe I wouldn’t have the same dog today without 5 Paws’ support and service.  I can’t thank my dog walker enough, the number of times she has walked in to my house to see something personal that my dog has chewed to a million pieces…she vacuumed, a house filled with natural gas…she opened all the windows and turned on the exhaust fan, to the number of days it was pouring down raining…she has dried off my dog.  Today I can walk in my house and my dog greets me tail wagging, no damage done.
Thank You 5 Paws, a special shoot out to Kelly!

 Five Paws to the Rescue!
That’s what I’d say about the wonderful experience I had with Jen and her team.  The attention to detail, kindness, and trust worthiness are just a few thoughts that come to mind.  I engaged Five Paws to help out my elderly Mom with Alzheimers.  Jen and her team engaged to walk my Mom’s dog once a day, however their spirit of caring did not stop at just that simple visit.  They also let me know if things were a bit off with Mom and with her dog, Lady.  I so greatly appreciate the kindness and personal touch.  I highly recommend their services and only wish I found them sooner!
-Cindy B. (Lady’s caregiver)

Mia and MollyBeing new in the area brought on many new uncertainties, one of which was the care for our 2 small dogs especially since one was very, very timid and shy; not receptive to “change” at all.  I must say after doing some research on various agencies that offered pet sitting / walking services, right from the initial meeting, Jenn made “our girls” feel like they knew her forever which was a welcomed relief that took aware any uncertainty about the services that 5 Paws of Delco could offer.  With Donna being our regular caregiver, our pups can hardly wait to greet her on a daily basis.  She’s tender and caring and makes sure that on the most rainy days our lil’ pups are all dried off and safely tucked back in the comfort of our home.  Great Service ~ Great Team~….thank you 5 Paws of Delco for being here for us!!!
-Nancy V. (Mia & Molly’s mom)

Rocco and Sophie5 Paws was recommended by a family member and we couldn’t have been happier with their pet sitter service! I was obviously nervous giving my house key to a stranger but Jenns initial visit put me at ease. She was so accommodating even with a last minute change on my part and being able to book thru email made everything so easy! We came home to two happy pugs and the nicest letter about the visits. I would highly recommend 5 Paws.
