"I want to say that I am extremely impressed with the way you run your business. The other day an acquaintance who was considering getting a dog asked me what I thought about the dog walking service we use. In recalling our tremendously successful experience with Metrotails, I recalled that we have been using you guys for well over a year and you have never missed a day, flubbed a time, forgot to lock a door, forgot to safely put Emma back where she was suppose to go, etc. On top of that you have really gone the extra mile on a couple occasions by taking Emma out when we couldn't get back from work, by having Emma and Sophie together, by sending emails like the one below, etc. If I can ever act as a reference I would be glad to. You should be extremely proud of the way you run your company."


"By the way, Julia and I are thrilled you guys are now walking Cody - it's the best decision we've made in quite sometime. Thank you and your staff for taking such good care of him!"

"I want to thank you guys for taking Sookie out each day, but also for working with her, too. Yesterday I took her to the park and she had 100% recall! (Even while chasing and playing with other dogs.) I'd call, she'd stop and race over to me. It was terrific! (And fun!) OK, so we made it a short trip to keep things positive and upbeat. Anyway, I attribute much of this to the work you do with her, so thank you."

"Emmett ROCKS!! Of all the dog walkers that I've used and/or met, Emmett is truly the BEST. I can't even begin to tell you how excited my dog gets seeing Emmett and when I come home at night, my pup is sooo relaxed and happy after a day w/Metro Tails. Unlike so many other dog walkers out there that just stand around chatting and ignoring their dogs, Emmett interacts w/his pack the entire time and keeps them moving so they come home happy and tired. And, he's totally focused on the dogs' well-being and keeps his groups small - - unlike those others who cram their car with 10 dogs and have no control over their pack. Believe me, I know a lot of dog walkers in SF and Emmett blows them all away. Professional, courteous, and goes above and beyond the call of duty."
