We absolutely love Walking the Dog Pet Services.  Tammy was always prepared, prompt and professional.  She communicated very well with us before, during and after our trip.  She understands the nature of pets....our fourteen year old, rickety lab and young, playful doodle were well looked after.  Both were given love, attention, and consideration.  We were texted daily pictures of their adventures (or naps for our old girl) thus making our vacation truly relaxing.  We came home to  happy, healthy dogs.  We would highly recommend Tammy. She is a delight to work with and obviously loves her clients and their families.

Tammy has been walking my baby Marley, for the past 6 months providing a mid-day break for him while I am at work.  Tammy's daily pictures and texts of Marley assure me that he is well taken care of and enjoying his time outside.  Tammy's service have allowed me to continue to keep Marley in his own environment and allow me the opportunity to continue to work my daily schedule knowing he is loved and attended to.  Tammy is reliable, attentive, and always friendly.  I would highly recommend Walking the Dog Pet Services and Tammy Zahm for any dog's needs.

From our dogs (Millie and Maggie) perspective Tammy is an integral part of our family.

For the past three years when we are traveling, she has been their substitute mom, taking on the responsibilities of walking, feeding and playing with them morning, mid day and  evenings.  Tammy has always provided text feedback about Millie and Maggie during each visit.  The whole experience has been a great relief for us compared to their past kennel experiences.  Tammy is a very responsible, kind and caring dog sitter.

Anyone looking for assistance with a pet should look no further than Tammy Zahm at Walking the Dog Pet Services.  She is trustworthy, honest and above reproach.  She has helped us with Wrigley, a black lab puppy we adopted at a challenging time in our lives.  To say that she saved the day...for nearly two an understatement.  She and Wrigley bonded as great friends.  She sent texts and emails with photos.  You can feel free to have her in your home, caring for your pets with no concern or worries.  Super knowledgeable and totally trustworthy.  We will call on her again, without question.      We recommend Tammy Zahm without reservation.  You will find no one you can trust as much.

In full sincerity,

Ed, Linda and Wrigley

Tammy Zahm owner of Walking the Dog Pet Services is a  true dog lover.  She is always well organized and she communicates beautifully with her clients and their dogs.  Recently when we were out of town, Tammy stayed in our home with our dogs for several days.  She sent daily photos so we could see that the dogs and the dog walker were having a good time together.  It  has been a wonderful experience working with Tammy.

Love at First Sight!

The minute that Tammy Zahm walked into Dudley's (our dog) life, it was Love At First Sight!  She is one of the sweetest and warmest individuals you will ever meet.  My husband, who is Dudley's favorite person in our family takes second place whenever Tammy is in our home.   Dudley literally waits for her daily arrival, walking from one door to the next.   Upon arrival, he jumps horizontally up and down to see "his love". Try to tell your dog that she will not be there on Saturday or Sunday...Good Luck!   Actually she is SO kind that if you really needed her on those days, she would come.

We are going to have Dudley stay overnight with Tammy several times this summer. 

I just hope that he isn't too depressed when he has to return to us :).    Having Tammy, not only in Dudley's life but also his parents, is truly an honor.
