She was more well behaved from having been exercised, and happy from getting to go out on a walk while I was at work! I would definitely refer Nature of the Dog to someone looking for a dog walker. They were always very professional when I contacted them.” Stephanie Murray. Having just moved to the Grand Rapids area, we knew no one. Nature of the Dog came recommended to us by our apartment building manager, as they were the dog walkers that most of the building was using.
We have been SO happy with their service provided, and they are great with Lily, our Cavalier King Charles. I would totally recommend Nature of the Dog if you need a dog walking service! “I called Nature of the Dog when I realized that my work schedule didn’t allow me to get my three dogs out for walks as much as they needed. Luke came over a couple of days later and the next week they started walking my pups. They are dependable and take such good care of my dogs. They are very easy to work with and stay in communication. I plan to increase the number of days they come to walk my dogs.” Lisa Harris.
They really care about my dog and are super reliable. I have called multiple times to ask for them to pick-up my dog for a walk, very last minute, and they have been there every time. I love seeing her happy pictures on their website and knowing that she has had a chance to take a potty break and stretch her legs puts me at ease while I’m at work. Moreover, Luke doesn’t just walk my dog; he has gone out of his way to be helpful. For instance, one day I had not had time to bring the trash can in and when I got home he had put it in the driveway. Another time, I had bought a harness for my dog, but couldn’t get it fitted properly and Luke was nice enough to fit it to her so we could use it.” Racheal Fox. They come every week to let our two 50+ lb dogs outside and take them on nice, long walks. When we get home after work, the dogs are always happy and exhausted.” Demy Potter. “Nature of the Dog provides more than a dependable dog-walking service – it has enabled our two dogs to build a genuine, trusting relationship with Luke (their dog walker), socialize with other dogs and people under professional supervision, and give us peace of mind that the dogs are exercised and well cared for during the work day. I have never been happier with any service, and would highly recommend Nature of the Dog to anyone!” Sheila Eddy. “My dog trainer recommended that I get in touch with Nature of the Dog to make sure that my pup was getting adequate exercise and it has made a huge difference. It has helped take some of the stress off of me because I know that they will take my dog for a great walk and saves me a trip home from work on my lunch break. Luke, Jackie and Deb make a great team and I love getting the update photos following the walk. Would HIGHLY recommend trusting this stellar group with your dog(s)!” Lizzie Williams. “I have loved the experience that I had with Nature of the Dog. We were able to have them help us while our dog was a puppy and I was commuting a long distance. I also have to say they went above and beyond one night when my significant other and I had locked ourselves out of our home and they offered to come with the spare keys to let us in. Luckily, our neighbor got home in time, but really kind to offer. Amazing, safe service and our pup loved them!” Amy Terhaar. We have 2 big dogs that have a lot of energy and are pretty challenging to walk. Luke does a great job with them and we have noticed many positive improvements in their behavior overall since we started working with Nature of the Dog. And we love getting pet care journals with pictures of our dogs when we are at work!” Angie Chisholm. Noka’s days are well rounded and always interesting thanks to these folks! I love getting the updates and photos during my work day, after each walk! These little anecdotes and amazing photos always bring a smile to my face and leave me with a feeling of ease knowing my fur babe is getting the best care! “NOTD was recommended by my dog trainer, A Pleasant Dog. Dog Walker Kelsey has developed a wonderful relationship with my dog. She is so reliable and I know I can trust her – I get an emailed report and usually a great photo of my sweetie each day Kelsey walks her.
The scheduling and paying on line are both very easy and convenient. I’ve been recommending NOTD to everyone!” Darlene Kaczmarczyk. They really get to know each dog, are very knowledgable about training, and truly are passionate about their business.
They are a blessing to our family!” Stephanie Cionca. “We cannot even begin to say how much we love Nature of the Dog. Samantha is our regular walker and we have a dog that can be fearful around new people. Samantha has helped us so much (with both of the humans working full time jobs).
