"Pooch Pals to the rescue! 


With only two hours notice, Josh was able to come to Arlington to meet me before I had to fly out unexpectedly for the weekend. My pup loved him and I knew he'd be great with her.  As an over protective mom, Josh was able to keep me at ease with pictures and texts updating me on how she was doing. Can't beat the prices and I would definitely recommend to my friends. You must try out Pooch Pals!"

"Joshua Hickey, Founder and Director of Pooch Pals LLC, has been walking my dogs

since May 2012. He is excellent with my Scotties. He has taught them better manners 

and is consistent with training. The Scotties love to see him. He comes regardless of 

weather. He is professional,dependable and polite. I trust him to have a key to my 

house. If he is running late, he calls to let me know. When he went on a family 

vacation last summer, he arranged a meeting with a friend to not only meet me,but 

also the dogs and go over details of care. The young man he chose was also 

dependable and polite. He has stayed overnight when I had to go away. He took 

excellent care of the dogs and the house. Mr. Hickey's prices are reasonable and more 

than competitive with other dog walking companies.


I highly recommend Joshua Hickey."

"We've relied on Josh to walk our feisty pit-bull

 

 mix, Drogo, every week day since we brought


 him home as a puppy in September 2012.

 


Josh took the time and care to understand Drogo's


 unique personality, and has worked with us on


 addressing specific behavioral issues as they


 come up. From watching the two of them


 interact and hearing really positive feedback


 from neighbors who see them together


 throughout the day, we know that when Drogo


 is with Josh he is safe, well-exercised, and


 having a really great time.

 


We trust their bond so much that we now rely on


 Josh to take care of Drogo and our cat whenever


 we're out of town. We're totally satisfied customers


 and recommend Josh to anyone looking for


 a reliable, trustworthy care taker for their pets!"

I am so glad that I found Josh Hickey from Pooch Pals! I recently moved to the area

 and rescued 2 dogs, so I needed a midday dog walker. Both of my dogs have their

 own quirks and needs, and Josh was able to recognize and address their issues

 immediately. One is learning to socialize with other dogs, and Josh was able to

 address her fear aggression and introduced her to other dogs starting on his first day

 with her!


He is both professional and reassuring. When I traveled out of town for 5 days, I

 knew they would be safe with him. I was still nervous about leaving them for the first

 time, so I asked him to send me updates.  Each day I received a text telling me that

 my dogs were fine and doing well. This helped me to enjoy my vacation, knowing

 that they were safe and enjoying their time with Josh.


Josh always answers my questions, addresses my concerns, and responds to me in

 a very timely manner. He is extrememly professional and polite.  I can tell that he

 truly cares about my dogs, and I have seen that my dogs are very happy to see him

when he comes over. His prices are extremely reasonable and his service is

excellent. I highly recommend Josh Hickey and Pooch Pals!"
