"So far River City has been prompt, easy to work with, and takes good care of my puppy. Each day they send me updates and photos of how he did, which is really comforting for a doggy mommy to know their baby is happy and taken care of! They also take good care of my home, the doors are always locked and the alarm is on. I plan to use them indefinitely for this service.defintely worth the hire!" -Justine, June 2016
"The dog was super happy when we got home, and I really enjoyed the detailed updates. Will definitely use this service again!!" -Elizabeth, June 2016
"They have always been so responsive, responsible, and caring about taking care of my two cats. I wouldn't choose anyone else; they are the best!" -Taylor K, March 2016
"They are responsive and always try to integrate our current training efforts into their walks with our 3 month old puppy. I get text/picture updates each visit and trust that they treat our pup like they would their own!" -Emily B, January 2016
"I have been so happy with River City Dog Excursions. When I first meet April and Coleen, my Golden Retriever, Darcy, was a young puppy and needed to get outside and run off her energy! The photos and videos they provided of her at the park and the river confirmed I found the right caregivers. I have been so happy with how accommodating they have been with my schedule and how diligent their care has been of Darcy. I travel frequently and I never have any worries when April or Coleen is with Darcy!
I am sad to be leaving the area and know it will be challenge to find anyone as caring, accommodating and with such a passionate love for animals as April and Coleen!! You will be thrilled with their professionalism and care of your cherished pets!" -Gina G, June 2015
"Our dog is extremely skittish/nervous and doesn't handle a kennel very well. She's scared of other dogs - go figure! At the recommendation of a friend, we contacted River City Dog Excursions. They were extremely professional and sent updates and photos of our dog to us while we were away. The best part was coming home to a happy dog! I would highly recommend this group!" -Cricket March 2015
"My dog loves it when April or Coleen show up for a visit. They take amazing care of him and it is clear that they are both dog lovers and will allow him to romp around off leash, but never in danger. They have also provided care to a very high maintenance pet rabbit for us. I feel very comfortable that they will do a great job whenever I need them. I have recommended them to many others. It's great to get away and not have to worry about my dog being home alone. THANKS River City Dog Excursions!" -Molly, December 2014
"I am so happy I found River City Dog Excursions. I have a sharpei/lab mix, who is a rescue, and lives up to his sharpei roots. He is very picky about who he likes, and I was very nervous about finding the right dog walker after my last one moved out of state. I interviewed several people who Pudge did not take to before Coleen came to meet him. Immediately he was curious and comfortable around her. She is the perfect mix of patient and not taking any of his shenanigans.
Coleen has been extremely accommodating with my irregular schedule, which has been amazing. She watched Pudge for a week while I was out of town, something I have never done before (always choosing to board him because of a detailed meds schedule). He was so relaxed and happy when I got back. Coleen is the perfect fit for Pudge and we are both very happy to have her in our lives." -Abbie T., July 2014
"River City Dog Excursions is the BEST dog walking service in the area! I have tried a number of professional services and none of them could live up to my standards. However, April and Coleen are truly a one of a kind service. They have gone above and beyond their call of duty to help me out and they do with a SMILE.
I commute to DC everyday and completely rely on April to let my guys out for their mid day break. She has never missed a day and even got my pups their dog food after I ran out. April also follows directions without a hitch and she never sneers at anything I ask her to do.
My pups just love her. She did a 4 day pet sitting job for me and it was as if I never left my place. I came home and my condo was in perfect condition and even more surprising was the fact that my pups acted as though I never left. It was truly amazing!
I also love the options they provide for walks. The Outings and Nature Walks are an awesome mid week break that my dogs just LOVE!
I completely trust April with my pups and River City Dog Excursions is a dependable, trustworthy, and the best bang for buck you can get in a dog walking service! YOU GUYS ROCK!" -Richard L., June, 2014
"River City Dog Excursions is amazing! I have a high energy lab mix who needs a lot of time outdoors which due to my job I'm not able to always provide him. It was so great to find this company to help get my pup the attention and outdoor time he deserves when I'm not able to! Highly recommended!!" - Lauren M., April 2014
"River City Dog Excursions is GREAT! Finally! A great service that you can trust with personable people who care about your pets! My husky loves the outdoors and her nature time, and I love having her return to me less rambunctious and much more well behaved! Great service I will be recommending it to everyone I know!" -Katie L., March 2014
"River City Dog Excursions is awesome! My Boston Terrier has thoroughly enjoyed his nature hikes! He is so much better behaved on the days he goes for his walks, exercise has definitely done him good!" -Ana R., March 2014
