What others have to say

Thank you to Lisa and the Canine Performance team for taking attentive care of Grizwald (my labradoodle) for more than 4 years! They were always reliable, fed my diva-doggy his lunch everyday after the walk and always alerted me if they were concerned of anything out of the ordinary with him. We recently moved and had to end our service but I highly recommend them to Arlington dog owners.

As a dog lover, it is extremely difficult to board your pet. I used to dread having to leave my girl with a kennel or other boarding facility when I travel. I started using Canine Performance two years ago and will never consider a different company.

We love the Canine Performance team! Lisa and her team of dog walkers took great care of our chocolate lab puppy, Coco. They were very responsive and knowledgable. It was great to know that our puppy was in good hands while we were at work.

I recently moved into a large complex in Arlington and was recommended to Lisa by management which by itself is an strong endorsement. My lab Jackson loves almost everyone however, I’m a tough sell. Lisa is good people. She is genuine, down to earth, real and clearly loves animals.

Lisa Meade and the entire staff at Canine Performance have been like a second family to our Whoodle Mollie. Lisa and her team are professional, diligent, punctual and most importantly, love Mollie like their own.
