I started with Brinkley's a month ago and already know I will keep them for a lifetime. Abby, the dog walker/certified dog trainer, could not be a better fit for my 15 month puggle. She comes by the house 3 days a week for walks/feeding and even has a playgroup on Wednesdays where she comes and PICKS UP and DROPS OFF your dog to play at her house for the majority of the day with a pack of other dogs. I was so impressed one day when it was muddy out, Abby even washed all the dogs. You could never find that at a doggie daycare without having to pay an additional $15. Also, after every session Abby always leaves a little note to let you know how her time went with your dog. If you need an extra session on late notice, Abby never fails-she will be there to help you and your dog. My favorite thing about Brinkley's is they know what is in your dog's best interest. I originally signed up with Brinkley's for dog walks 3 days a week, but my dog really loves to socialize with her "friends." On more than one occasion, Abby reached out to me before her walk to see if it was okay if my dog could come over and play with some of the dogs she was watching at her house...my dog loved it and is much more tired than just taking a walk...which is HUGE for an energetic little pup! All in all, Brinkley's is the best dog service in the Saratoga region as far as I'm concerned! If you are in need of training/companionship/housesitting for your dog-Brinkley's is the way to go!
We hired Brinkley's Basics and Beyond, LLC to walk our puppy during the work week and cannot say enough about how great Abby and Brinkley are. Always on time, great communication and the fact that the owner is a certified dog trainer makes things even better! Brinkley, a sweet Black Lab, comes along sometimes too which is great for our pup. We also send our puppy to the play group on Wednesday's and know that anytime we are in a jam Abby and Brinkley are there to help! 5 stars but would give more if I could!!
