We, and I’m certain, so many others, are beyond grateful for the service you provide. I can’t imagine any place or any people better.

Nice pictures. ..!! Daisy loved her time with you. She was exhausted and slept for 3 straight days! Lol. Thanks again for giving us peace of mind and loving our daisy.

We have known Kimberly and Perry since they started their business and have used them exclusively, ever since. Whether taking care of our cats, our house or our dog, they have become a very reliable source for my husband and I when we are away. There has been many times, as well, that for one reason or another, we have been delayed returning home and they have always been accommodating to our situations often going above and beyond what we would expect. They’ve treated our pets as their own and always make sure we get e-mails and photos of them while we are away. Just another measure of comfort for us. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone and I know our dog, Dora, would as well!

Thank you for taking such good care of “the boys” for us while we were on vacation. I think they miss you … It’s so good to know that we don’t have to worry about them while we’re away and hope that the next time we vacation, you’ll take care of them again for us at your Pet Resort. I tell anyone I know who has a dog about you and have given your business card to several friends with the highest recommendation.

Kimberly Kester (Best Friends Dog Walking Pet & House Services) was recommended to us by our veterinarian. We have had her take care of our 14 year old dog Maddy several times over the past year. We have found her to be a loving and attentive care-giver to our pet and feel completely comfortable leaving him for several days, knowing that she is reliable and trustworthy. Maddy always gets special care when he is in Kim’s care, with long walks, play time, grooming, etc.; he certainly enjoys the time she spends with him. Thanks Kimberly for such a great job! We know Maddy loves you, and we greatly appreciate the service you offer.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for taking care of Maddie this week at your Pet Resort. We think she had a wonderful time! Thank you for all the pictures on Facebook – it’s really great to see her enjoying herself and being sociable. We will (and already have) definitely recommend your services to our friends and family.

We planned to attend a family wedding in the States over the Thanksgiving weekend and needed a trustworthy and experienced person to care for our timid little cat, Cricket. We were indeed fortunate to be referred to Kimberly Kester. Kimberly responded promptly to my phone call and we scheduled an initial consultation in our home. My husband and I were delighted when Cricket responded warmly to Kimberly on first contact. We were also impressed by Kim’s professionally assembled booklet which outlined her services and qualifications. We left on our trip confident that Cricket would be well cared for. On our return, Cricket met us at the door. She was happy and relaxed – as good as we’ve ever seen her. The notes Kim made at each visit were very much appreciated as well. I would highly recommend Kimberly to anyone looking for a reliable, capable and caring person to look after their animals.

Having three dogs can be a handful at times, and it’s hard to know who to ask to look after them when you want to get away. We found Kimberly, with Best Friends Dog Walking Pet & House Services, to look after our family when we’re away because we know we’ll come back to find them as happy and comfortable as we left them (if not more so). Kimberly always does that little extra for the three girls, Sandy, Taylor and Baby. She plays ball, and gives them the best belly rubs which is Sandy’s favourite. We’ve learned to trust Kimberly to take good care of our dogs and our home when we’re away.

Kim has been a wonderful addition to Chloe’s life. We can’t begin to describe how happy we are with her service. It has been very reassuring knowing that someone like Kim is looking after our little girl while we’re at work. From the daily summaries she leaves to the consistent and reliable service she provides, she brings an unparalleled professional and passionate approach in taking care of our baby. We both feel that much better at work every day in just knowing that she’s taking care of Chloe when we’re not there. Thank you Kim and keep up the great work!

We own two small dogs, one is a Papillon/shitzu and the other is a Shih Tzu…. We have tried quite a few “Pet Sitters” since we adopted our “girls”… Sophie and Angel are very friendly dogs and are very much an important part of our family. It isn’t that we have had a problem with sitters, we just thought they didn’t make the girls feel that they were important, but more of a job that they were fulfilling. That is until we found out about “Best Friends Dog Walking Pet & House Services… We picked up a business card in Grimsby at a shop on the main street and decided that we would give ‘Kim’ a call. We needed a Pet Sitter in the near future and were still looking for the right one. We found her. The girls immediately took to Kim and she was the first one to actually get down to their level on the floor and greet them. She was friendly, pleasant and very thorough in her questions and the papers we needed to fill out should we decide to have her stay with the girls. We feel that we have the right person and her love for animals is evident just talking with her…we never worry about the girls because Kim has had so much experience with dogs and knows what to do should an emergency arise. We highly recommend Kim and appreciate her passion in her chosen field.

Best Friends Dog Walking & Pet Resort is absolutely outstanding. It is comforting to know that when you can’t be home with your ‘Best Friends’ that Kimberly is just a phone call away. I know my dogs look forward to her daily visits and they are truly in good hands. Her services are many and she will always help you out in a pinch. Kimberly is a professional that loves pets and this is evident in the way she conducts herself. I highly recommend her services. Take the stress out of being away from your pets and place them in her caring, compassionate warm hands.

I just wanted to thank you for being the BEST dog walker ever! I appreciate that you are so flexible and I know Scout is in good hands. I wish there were more animal lovers like you in this world. Scout and I thank you.

Kim & Perry, thank you so much for taking care of our Kali while we were gone. She is still exhausted from all the playing she did while she was at Best Friends Pet Resort. I also think she’s missing Randy. Lol. It was so good to see pictures of her on here while we were away. Thanks again!!
It is such a great feeling to leave our home and our kennel with Kimberly & Perry of Best Friends! We come home to a clean and organized kennel, and all the dogs are well cared for, clean, groomed and happy. We are certain that they had a very enjoyable week. We appreciate all the little notes they write every time they visit. It’s great to read when we get home, and it’s also such a good feeling knowing that although we were gone we didn’t miss out on the dogs day to day activities. It is also very reassuring to know that we can count on them to just step in and improvise as needed when things don’t go as planned without interrupting our vacation! Having a large kennel with sometimes 8+ dogs and occasionally litters of puppies to care for Kimberly and Perry are amazing. We highly recommend Best Friends Dog Walking to all our friends and family! I would not trust anyone else with our home or our dogs.
