Customer Testimonials

"Jacob Folger has been a regular fixture at our house for the last couple of years.  He's provided sound training for Eamon, our dog (and us!), and walking services--both on a regular schedule and on an ad hoc basis as our schedule changes.  We've come to rely on Jacob's availability at a moment's notice, his calming influence on our dog, and his professionalism. We trust him as a very valued member of our family and highly recommend his services!"

"I am writing to thank you for taking such wonderful care of our two dogs, Guppy and Nellie, while we were in California for a week. I contacted you because a trusted friend recommended you, but even her superlatives did not do you justice! We so appreciated your professionalism. You charmed my dogs, took notes and answered every question. You kept a wonderfully detailed diary for us on our return. Our dogs clearly bonded with you as evidenced by the fact that they cuddled up with you at night. I hope you really did sleep at night because Guppy snores! When we returned the dogs were glad to see us but were calm and happy. Our home was meticulously cared for as well. Thank you so much Jacob!! We would love to have you take care of our dogs and home again. We will be calling you."

"Jacob Folger's Dog Training has been a wonderful and rewarding experience for my puppy, Bumper. She learned several commands in just a couple sessions and thouroughly enjoys learning new behaviors and practicing her training. I highly recommend Jacob Folger to anyone who wants positive obedience results quickly without using abusive training methods."

"Jacob has been walking my dogs for the past couple of years. He is extremely reliable and leaves me the nicest notes telling me how the visits went. He also has been very flexible working with my schedule which has been really helpful. It's clear that Jacob really cares about dogs and other critters. My dogs always seem happy when I get home on days they have been visited by him."

Hillary Catlin

"My Dachshunds are my best buddies and I am very particular about who takes care of them. Jacob Folger is very caring and loving with them and I trust him completely. Most importantly, so do they. My miniature is very suspicious of people but he loves Jacob. That's the best testimonial there is."

Kathy Vetter

"After many bad experiences with cat sitters, I was very happy to find Jacob Folger. I have used him regularly for nearly a year and have been very pleased with their professionalism, attention to detail and caring attitude toward my cat. I recommend Jacob Folger highly."

Heather Hill

​"Thanks so much for taking wonderful care of my two dogs! I can't tell  you how reassuring it is to know that they are in good, gentle and absolutely reliable hands while I am out of town. I especially appreciate how concerned you have been to get in touch with me with any problems. Also it was so nice of you to return and give my dogs a walk when my plane was late. I especially appreciate your gentleness with and compassion for my blind dog who is afraid of staircases and many other seemingly minor things and for my other dog who has a siezure disorder and needs to take her medications three times a day. Jacob, you have been terrific. Thanks again!"

Anne Gowan

"Jacob is phenomenal! I would not entrust my Seeing Eye Dog, Cade to anyone else. Jacob takes care of him when I am not able to and does so with the same care and attention I give to my dog. I have tried other dog walking services and Jacob Folger has no equal in my opinion."
