I have had a wonderful experience with the Unleashed Pet! I hired them to walk my greyhound, Luke, and from the Spot Check picture and report its clear that they spend a lot of time with him. He is much more relaxed now when my husband and I come home from work. They are very flexible with scheduling- snow days, sick days and government shutdowns are no issue. We would highly recommend the Unleashed Pet! Update 2021- Now we have three greyhounds and they all love their friends at the Unleashed Pet. They've missed seeing them as a result of Covid. As much as they like having me around (I think), I know they'll be happy to see their walkers again!

My daughter had used them for several years and they have been a lifesaver for the family. My daughter has had some health issues and was hospitalized a few times, and I was able to get them to jump in at the last minute to stay with her dogs so I did not have to move in. They are flexible, dependable, responsive, and the dogs love them too. Love the pictures they send, which were great for my daughter when she was in the hospital. I can't say enough good about them.

We adopted a 5-yr old feist-mix named Penny in March 2018. After reading reviews of local dog walkers, we chose The Unleashed Pet. The owner, Christy, immediately responded to our request, and met with the three of us. We began services the …

I couldn't ask for a more trustworthy or professional company to care for our dog when we're away at work. Our walker, Gennah, has bonded with our collie and I know he loves it when she comes over. Gennah's very careful not to put him in situations that make him nervous - like when there are trucks outside or loud noises in the neighborhood, which scare him - so she takes him for a quick potty break and then plays with him inside where he's comfortable. They ease my nerves about leaving our baby every day, and I couldn't be more grateful!

Christy and her team showed care and consideration when taking care of my elderly Valerie. At no time did I worry about the care Valerie was given. Her team provided updates and pictures. Valerie did not seem to mind too much when I would be away. Christy has strict key controls in place, which protect both her and me. Due to my condo's strict key controls, I have a limited number of front door keys. These controls caused some anexity at both the beginning and end of the relationship (Valerie passed). I would recommend Christy and her team.

Unleashed Pet is phenomenal. They truly love and take care of your pets as if they are their own pets. They have also taken care of us on more than one occasion where our plans changed at the last minute.

The staff of The Unleashed Pet have been taking care of my elderly cat Chloe when I travel for the last couple of years. I especially like that I receive a photo of her and a report on their visit every day. Excellent communication and great concern for my cat

I moved to Alexandria last year and had to find a dog walker because of that crazy DC traffic. I love the service I receive from The Unleashed Pet. Christy and her team take great care of my doodle Lilli. I receive an email each day letting me know she is being well cared for along with a picture. I would recommend The Unleashed Pet to anyone who needs a dog walker.

This is--hands down--the best dog walking service I've used in NoVA (Alexandria, Fairfax Cty, Arlington). I have not had a SINGLE HICCUP during my time working with them. They are pleasant, they walk my dog the appropriate amount of time …

Even on fairly short notice The Unleashed Pet is usually able to help us out. However, I do recommend getting in touch with them asap if you have plans to travel, as sometimes communication can be a little slow. My husband and I look forward to the pictures they send during every visit. My cat always seems happy and healthy when we return. We have never had an issue with a sitter and have been extremely grateful to have found this service.

Sad to say this company did not work out. I prefer female owned companies but communication was poor. Christy nearly bit my head off a few times whenever I would ask a question about billing etc. I understood billing was on the first of the month but never got the December bill. Then delivered both December and January bills together! Over $600 I couldn’t make the adjustment bc I was in the middle of refinancing and didn’t want to put that big a charge on a Credit Card. I gave 7 days notice to end services but she wouldn’t leave my keys in my locked home! She flat out refused to leave my keys even though my front door is a combination lock. Her tone was condescending and accusatory. She insisted on sending my keys through certified mail! All sort of ridiculous. Also when she came with my walker for the first walk, she didn’t want me to meet her and was curt and short. I always felt like I was “walking on eggshells” with this woman. Holding onto my keys was really the final straw.

Terrible experience. This was my first time using the service. The owner scheduled a "get to know each other" meeting and then failed to bring the caregivers who would be staying in my home! After telling me that I didn't need to meet them …

Completely disappointed. We used Unleashed just one time and all seemed to go well until we tried to book them again. Called Christy to have them again and she said she would "check the schedule". A couple days later, after no reply, I …

I used The Unleashed pet for my beloved cat. From the beginning they were very professional, coming over to meet me and my cat. They did an excellent job of taking care of him while I was away, even when he was on several medicines in his old age. I highly recommend their services.
