  • Ashley and the service she provides is simply great! We've had her look after our animals twice now and will certainly use her again. She's come over beforehand to insure that our needs and expectations will be met. You can tell from the questions that she asks that she takes this responsibility very seriously. Her services make our lives easier when we're away.

  • Blue skies is a fantastic service for pet owners. Ashley is very professional and attentive. What a relief to have someone take care of your pets while you are away. Our home and dogs were well taken care of while we were away. She will get your mail and packages as well, which is a huge benefit! Our dogs were so happy to be able to stay home and have their friend Ashley come visit so many times a day. Thanks again for your wonderful service to our community! Will keep referring you.

  • I feel like everyone at Blue Skies always goes above and beyond to care for our dogs. Both of our boys are super stubborn and I'm always a little nervous to open the photos I'm sent because I'm afraid they've been misbehaving, but the dogs are always smiling. I'm pretty sure they're spoiled rotten while we are gone! Thank you for all you do for us!

  • Great service. Our pet was clearly well cared for, and Ashley helped us feel connected while we were away by staying in touch. Our pet was clearly happier when we returned home than she typically is after a vacation!

  • First off I'd like to state how incredibly impressed I was with Ashley's patience and how responsibly my pets were cared for the last time I was out of town, the service she provides is incredibly convenient and she has the utmost respect for her clients homes and moreso for their pets. Upon meeting ashley both my dogs were immediately drawn to the pleasant and kind aura she exudes and they were eating from her hand (both figuratively and litterally haha) mere moments after she arrived in my home. In short I would reccomend this service for anybody who hate the idea of their pets being kenneled but cannot usurp responsibilities that keep them from having to leave the comfort of their home for an extended period. I assure you, your pets, and your property are left in good hands.

"I’ve had several trainers but not as educational, dedicated, and hard working as Vanessa. She is super awesome!! I can’t speak highly enough about her. Just an awesome, awesome person and trainer. We are lucky to have her." - Jane R., Newton

"Ashley with Blue Skies Pet Care is AWESOME! I've used Blue Skies services multiple times over the past year and my 2 dogs LOVE to have Ashley come visit them. They no longer have to put up with all the noise while boarding at a kennel. They can stay in their own, comfortable, familiar surrounds. They are HAPPY and RELAXED when we get home....and I know Dylan and Tika have had lots of love and belly rubs. I've referred numerous people to Blue Skies Pet Care, knowing Ashley will take just as good care of their pets as she has with mine! Highly recommend you call Blue Skies to help you with your pet care needs!" - Kathy P, Hesston

Ember dog training client in Newton"Highly recommend Vanessa from Blue Skies, as others have been. We just got done working with Vanessa the last couple months and it's been a complete game changer in the communication between my dog and I. Customized to your goals and helps you understand how to continue training into the future." - Tim C, Newton

Otto the St. Bernard"I am so pleased with the service we got for our St. Bernard Puppy. At 6 mo old he was bigger than he could control. They worked wonders with him and have made it a joy to have him around. He is still a lot of puppy but has learned to be 'careful' with his weight and size! I highly recommend!! They did great and Otto had a great time with her! Thanks again!" - Patricia M., Newton



Indi and Austin the Australian Shepherds"Blue Skies Pet Care is what exactly what we needed when we left for vacation.... Ashley immediately put us at ease by coming to meet the dogs and get accustomed to what we expected. It was wonderful to know she picked up where we left off... We highly recommend this service and will not hesitate to use it again." - Jan N., Newton
