Gigi is my little girl in dog's clothes.  Heather and Lori of Animal Magnetism love her like their own!  They have loved and cared for Gigi for almost six years. I travel often and because of them, I can leave town guilt-free and not worried.




Our dogs have a blast

We love Lori & Heather!  They are reliable and trustworthy.  My dogs are always happy to see them.  Actually, both of my dogs listen better to them than they do to me.  And you have to love beach day. The dogs have a blast and come home exhausted and clean.  What can be better than that!

I trust them completely

I don’t know what I’d do without Heather and Lori!  When I adopted my little dog Stella, I asked around for a dog walker referral.  My very good friend recommended Animal Magnetism and couldn’t say enough good things about Heather and Lori.  And she was so right.  Stella absolutely adores both Heather and Lori.  She greets them with the same enthusiasm that she greets me and I know she loves her daily outings.  She has also attended a couple of their beach days and has returned home happy as can be.  It means everything to me to know that Stella is being cared for with such attention and affection. Additionally, they are completely professional and conscientious.  I trust them completely and recommend them highly.

We are very happy

Our family was fortunate to find Animal Magnetism 10 years ago.  We have not considered using another pet care service since.  Heather and Lori have gone above and beyond our expectations on so many different occasions and have helped us through the care of two sets of dogs.  They were wonderful with our older dogs- who have since passed away- nursing them through ailments and caring for them through their heartbreaking illnesses.  They helped us welcome our current high- energy labs to our family since they were puppies and continue to keep them so very happy when we go on vacations or when we need a dog walk, park visit or beach playdate.  We never worry when our pets are with them because we know that they are being loved and are having a blast.  We trust Heather and Lori without question and feel so fortunate that we can always count on them.

They are the best

Lori and Heather:  Have we really known each other for 10 years… pretty amazing.  What can I say if it was not for your TLC of our Calie we would not be able to travel as I will not leave my dog in a commercial kennel.  You are the best…when Calie can see you she gets that tail going at 100-mph and is out the gate without a backward look.  You have looked after her from her rambunctious youth to her stately old age and we thank you for your loving care.

Best of Care

“We’ve been using Animal Magnetism for years and have referred them to my friends.  We have also left our dogs Lucky, Mojo, & Neo with them when we have had to travel, which can be hard, but I know Lori & Heather would take care of them just like they were theirs.”
