Testimonials

Mike with Gunny

Diane was so accommodating and thorough in the booking process and such a joy to work with! She sent multiple texts and pictures during my dog’s stay that I never had to wonder how he was doing. I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again if I need a sitter. 

Dave with Rocco

Diane is amazing! She went above and beyond with Rocco. She sent me tons of pictures and was in constant communication. She took him out on adventures with her! Made me feel totally comfortable with Rocco staying with her. Will use again! 

Maria with Rye (Board and Train!)

What a wonderful experience. When my husband and I went to pick up Rye at Diane’s house our pup was so happy. I can tell she was very comfortable and felt safe in Diane’s home. I missed my girl but Diane sent me videos, pictures and daily reports to let us know her progress! She came home last night and when I got home from work today she was greeted me calmly. Walking her has been much easier as well. I’m so excited to continue Ryes training. She has an awesome foundation. I couldn’t have done it without BEYOND THE WALK.

Danielle with Scout and Jet

This is a first rate dog service. My dogs lived in Diane’s home like it was their own. Fenced in backyard so dogs can go out whenever they want. Pictures and correspondence all week while I was away. I also loved my dogs got to be with other dogs however she knows when to separate dogs if needed. My dietary instructions followed as well. She even ran out of dog food and purchased my brand for me !!! 

Francesca with Buckeye and Max

We are thrilled to have found Diane! My two dogs absolutely loved her. How do I know this when I was away? Because I was replaying a video that she sent me while on vacation and my 2 dogs came running and wagging their tails after hearing her voice on the video! My Jack Russell was whimpering when he heard her which is what he does when he gets excited. She spent a lot of time going over their needs & habits with us and kept in contact with me all week thru texts/emails/pics/videos. They both arrived home happy, rested and cared for where in the past, when boarded at other places, they would arrive home scratched, tired, dirty & weary. It's only March and I've already booked with Diane for the Christmas holidays! For as long as Diane is in the area, we will not consider boarding our doggies anywhere else. 

Jackie with Gino, Gigi, and Ginger

Had a Great Experience with Beyond the Walk used them for the first time and Diane was great with all three of our dogs I will be using them again in the future.

Jake with Roxie

Roxie had a great time! She was excited when we dropped her off and she came home exhausted! We recommend Diane highly and will definitely call again.

Jennifer with Otis

I was so happy when I found out about Beyond the Walk. My dog is scared of other places especially if I have to board him at the vet, which makes leaving him so hard. Diane though was so friendly and extremely knowledgeable about dogs. She asked all the important questions to make sure my dog wasn't put in any situations where he would not feel comfortable while in her care. Otis immediately felt at home during our initial meet and greet and throughout his stay, Diane kept me up to date with texts. Upon picking him up, Otis was visibly in happy spirits and seemed sad to have to say goodbye to his new found friend. I would highly recommend Diane and Beyond the Walk and will be bringing my pup here for future stays! Thank you so much for everything you do! 

Jennifer and Justin with Bella

There are not enough words to say about Diane!!!! She has been fantastic, sent us pics, videos, etc. while we are away! We are afraid our little pooch is never going to want to come home bc she is on her own vacation!!!! Thank you so much Diane for loving our Bella and treating her as your own!!! Appreciate you very much!

Jade with Winston

Diane was amazing at keeping me informed she even texted me and let me know after I got home to remind me that my puppy might need to poop, as he was having so much fun at beyond on the walk. I got constant updates!! My puppy got home and slept like a baby. He was in the best hands. I can tell from how relaxed and happy he was when I arrived.

Lisa with Lucy, Em, Gordon and Krysta

Diane has such a connection with dogs. She took care of my four dogs this summer and they were treated as if they were home. Diane took pictures and videos to show me how comfortable my dogs were -- She really put my husband and mine minds at ease. I have since dropped my dogs off for long weekends when we travel and my dogs have always been happy to go to her. I would highly recommend Diane and Beyond the Walk. 

Alice with Charlie

I highly recommend Diane! She is very knowledgeable and caring, and attends to the individual needs of the each animal. Safety is a high priority with Diane, which put me at ease when leaving our little boy with her. She also sent pics and updates frequently and was always quick to get back regarding any question or concern. I would not hesitate to leave Charlie with her again. 

Merryl with Montana

Montana's day care was wonderful. He enjoyed, played and rested. Loved the photos sent! We will be back.

Debbie with Zabel

We are so happy Diane has moved into our area and that we found her! We recently went on a long vacation. Having never left our pup with anyone, we began to grab at straws to find good doggy care. This is exactly what we found at Beyond the Walk!! We expressed our concern about our nervous pup and Diane suggested bringing him for a visit or two to try and acclimate him to her environment. This was such a big help to our nervous critter! It took him a couple of days to feel at home, but at home was what he was for his stay with Diane!!! We were afraid he would not want to come home with us!! Diane sent videos to us and kept in touch to let us know our pup was happy and safe. She went the extra mile to be sure our "escape artist" did not have a way to get to the big bad highway. She is super sweet and has the heart and "know how" needed to take care of our furry family members!!!If ever we have the need again we are happy our pup has a place to call his second home! 

Phillip with Lucy

Diane O. was an amazing sitter for our dog. This is our first dog and not only was she great with our puppy she taught us all the things we needed to know as new dog owners. She has a great knowledge of all types of dogs and was more than happy to share it with us. She answered all of questions and concerns. We have other options for a dog sitter but my wife wouldn't think of using anyone but Diane.

Bethany with Ruby

Diane watched my Great Pyrenees as a puppy. When I came home, my big girl was safe, happy and ready for a nap! My dog loves seeing Diane every time she visits!

Leigh with Diego

Diego had a great stay with Diane. He was there only there for the day but I got updates and pictures on how he was doing. He had some walks, his snacks and seemed very relaxed when I picked him up - no problems! I would recommend.

Brittany with Foxy

Diane is amazing!!! Diane truly cares for animals. She fostered Foxy, a young chihuahua, prior to my adoption. During the adoption process Diane went above and beyond her duties! Foxy had a difficult time adjusting to her new home, but Diane spent many hours on the phone and countless texts to help me work with Foxy. She was so concerned about Foxy's depressed-like behavior post-adoption that she would text me every day to check in and see what had worked or not with Foxy. She would suggest things to try with Foxy. Over time ( and with a little help from extra treats) Foxy became herself. Diane is FANTASTIC with communication. I always had a response from her within 24 hours, but typically she responded back within a few hours! If I lived near Diane, I would trust her and want her as my dog walker!

Rachel with Mater

I met Diane when I became a foster through a rescue she volunteered for. Due to her condo association changing their rules, she was being forced to regime her current foster which is where I came in. It should be noted that Diane is so dedicated to fostering and caring for dogs that she immediately put her condo on the market! You will not find a woman more passionate about dogs and their care! She is not only knowledgeable and experienced from her work at the ASPCA as well as fostering, she is thorough and thoughtful in her assessment of potential adopters so she knows what good treatment of dogs looks like. There could not be a more trustworthy caretaker for your dog.

Molly with Wilson

Diane is an incredibly devoted dog owner and caregiver. She fostered our dog Wilson before we adopted him, and our interactions with her through the adoption process revealed that she loves her animals, and will go above and beyond to see that they are happy and healthy. Diane is undoubtedly qualified to be a dog sitter, and I would highly recommend her.
