TESTIMONIALS

 
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 Canine Performance. They are always friendly and accommodating. Our dog is never as happy as when she gets a visit/walk from Canine Performance. The cost is reasonable, the service is great and our dog is happy!

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.

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.

Canine performance has been so wonderful! I use canine performance for mid-day walks and have used them for overnight boarding/walks for my puppy. Lisa and her team are extremely reliable and accommodating. I have a somewhat flexible job where my telework schedule changes a lot. Canine performance is well organized when I change up my days/times from my normal scheduled walks, and their customers come first. Glad to know my pup is always in great hands!

My dog (Charlie) and I moved to Arlington last May. I treat her better than I treat myself! My biggest concern when we moved was finding someone that I could trust to take care of her while I was at work. From the first day, Lisa and her team have taken care of her and it has been a pleasure working with them! Charlie looks forward to long walks no matter if its sunny, rainy or snowing! Canine Performance is professional, easy to work with and understanding. I would highly recommend trusting them with your loved one!

As the owner of a new French Bulldog puppy I realized how quickly I wanted/needed understanding, coaching and peace of mind when it came to who was walking him and giving him love and attention while my husband and I were at work. From our first home visit/assessment till now we have seen how our puppy has experienced so much love and support and feel totally at ease with everyone from Canine Performance. We cannot recommend them enough!

Exceedingly professional and reliable company! Canine Performance was a pleasure to work with, there was never a time I felt unsure or doubtful of the service being provided. Customer service was phenomenal. I only wish I could take them with me when I move.

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.

Lisa is great and treats my dog as her own. Canine Performance is always on time, very flexible and has helped me out of a jam multiple times! Will continue to use their service.

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.
