Gillian has been a part of our family since our pup, Jackson, was 3 months and he just turned 14 months. We are incredibly lucky to have such a kind, ethical, hard-working individual to take care of Jackson while we're at work or away on vacation. We live in an apartment building and Gillian even arranges play dates with some of her other 4-legged clients in the building.
If Jackson gets in the elevator and smells Gillian, he goes crazy- he will pull me around to find her. That give me complete piece of mind; we know that he loves Gillian and that she loves him! Gillian even agreed to attend a few dog training lessons with us so we could be consistent in Jackson's training. She is flexible, caring and the ultimate dog-lover. It's great to getphotos of Jackson while we are on vacation and to come back to a clean home and dog that we know was truly loved and cared for while we were away. Thanks Gillian and Modern Dogs for loving our family!

Modern Dogs is amazing!! Gillian stayed with our two Staffordshire Bull Terriers for three weeks to allow us to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip as a family. We couldn't have been gone for so long if we didn't know the boys were in such great hands. She took them for enough walks each day to keep these two goofballs entertained and content (not an easy job for anyone), she paid special attention to one of the boys who needs daily medication, and she generally loved them like they were her own. We came home to happy and fit dogs, a clean house and an overall sense of gratitude that we're all so lucky to have Gillian and Modern Dogs when we need them!

When I started a new office job, I had no idea what to do with my crazy lab mix pup, Hutch. Daycare five days a week was too expensive and too tiring, even for him! So thankful I found Gillian to come give Hutch some love and fresh air a few days a week. I appreciate the notes she leaves, and I can actually visualize the stories she writes about Hutch! She's even been so kind as to clean up after some of his destructive behavior which is above and beyond what she has to do for us. We all love you Gillian!

Gillian walks and pet sits for many of the residents in the building I manage. Everyone is very pleased with her and her commitment to their pets. I always recommend her for any new residents. Gillian also takes care of my rescued hound-mix, Cyrus. He can be a bit shy around people, but he absolutely LOVES her. It’s really warming to see how excited he is to see her and Gillian posting pics of our pets out on their daily walks is a really nice touch! Gillian with Modern Dogs is amazing. HIGHLY recommend!

Gillian was wonderful as our daily dog walker. She was extremely diligent and left us detailed notes about our puppy’s daily temperament that made us feel like we knew just how she was faring from day to day. We could tell from Gillian’s thoughtful notes that she gave our puppy caring, compassionate, and thoughtful attention each time.
We often left Gillian explicit instructions or requests regarding walks or medications, and Gillian always carried out our requests cheerfully and left us information on how things went. We felt very confident leaving our puppy in Gillian’s hands, and it put our minds at ease knowing she was in such good, reliable care. I strongly recommend Gillian as a dependable, cheerful, hard-working dog walker.
