Paws-itive Feedback

"Michelle has been taking agility classes with me for about 3 years and has done a spectacular job with her Doberman, Elias. She has been able to take on the learning of her job, and teach her dog his job, in this complex sport.

I have also hired her to look after my dog and horse household when I am away, and she manages a rather feisty group of dogs with a lot of skill and really calm energy. Our dogs enjoy her thoroughly. 

I have received wonderful responses from clients whose animals she cares for when they are away, and for regular hikes to exercise and maintain social skills."

"Michelle McDonald (Trails and Tails) has been providing service to our pets since November 2013.  The services have included regular dog walking and occasional nail trimming for our dog and senior cat.


We have found Michelle to be very caring in her interactions with our animals.  We find her to be exceptionally knowledgeable in the care of animals and fully accountable to us throughout and have complete trust in her skills and competence.  


Michelle has a particularly strong bond with our 3 year old Cockapoo and we would say his walk is the highlight of his day.  In fact, we cannot say Michelle's name out loud in his presence because he becomes very excited with expectation.


We must say that Michelle's services have totally met our needs and we feel very lucky to have been referred to her services."

"Abby gets more excited when Michelle comes to pick her up then when we get home from work, lol. We feel so great knowing that she is out having a good time with her friends and getting tired out. Who would not want a tired puppy at night to curl up with? We know she is in the best hands when Michelle has her out."

"It's been almost a year since Michelle, Trails and Tails - Dog Walking and Pet Care Services , came into our lives and I am thankful every day!  My pup was a handful being deaf and insecure, and with Michelle's caring and consistent provision of walks while I was recuperating, Jewel is a now a more confident and healthy 1.5 year old.  The techniques Michelle taught Jewel on trail walks and other small but important behaviours have helped create a wonderful companion who can safely navigate through social situations. I sincerely don't know how I would have managed this past year without Michelle's help and Jewel is a better dog for knowing her!"

"Presley cannot control herself when Michelle comes to pick her up for weekly hikes with other furry friends.  She is beyond excited!  She got a 4.5km hike today and will be pooped when she gets home!

Michelle is AMAZING at what she does and I highly recommend her.  Even if you walk your dog regularly on your own, it's great socialization and fun for the dogs!"
