I haven't had the best experience with Wag or Rover walkers in the past, so I was very happy to find Game Time and have been using them for over a year now....
Amy & the whole team at Game Time are PHENOMENAL! I diligently researched and interviewed multiple people and companies when initially looking for help taking my dog outside for potty breaks when I am tied up at the office, and no one even came close to the trust, service, and care Game Time offers. I've been a customer for 4+ years and yet to have a less-than-stellar experience. Their communication is impeccable, scheduling & billing are a breeze through the online portal, and I love seeing the thorough email recap w pics of their visit. It is a big deal to let someone into your home while you aren't there, & an even bigger deal to let someone leash up your pet to take outside - but I have zero reservations recommending Game Time to do either! (Note: this comes from someone whose dog holds equal rank as a human child would in most households). I'm forever grateful for finding an angel like Amy and her staff of amazing humans that treat my beloved dog (and home!) with the utmost of care.
I love that everyone at Game Time cares so much about my girl when they come to walk her. They always send me pictures and updates on if she did her business! I wish I was home less so I could use them more. I think it's good for Lily to interact with different walkers!😍 besides me, that is
Game Time Dog Services have been amazing for my growing family!When my wife got pregnant, I knew that our schedule would become pretty crazy when our baby arrived. And, it was important to me that we didn't neglect our fur baby (Ellie) and made sure she was still getting her walks and exercise. So I hired Game Time Dog Services in our third trimester so that Ellie could get acclimated to the dog walker. Amy worked diligently to provide us with someone (Greg) who was a good fit for our schedule and for Ellie's temperament. Before every walk, Greg would text me when he was on the way and Ellie became so excited to see him.The Game Time Dog Services app and online portal also make it super easy to contact them with questions, cancellations, or updates.I would highly recommend Game Time Dog Services to any expecting parents who have a dog. It's one small way that you can give some TLC to your pups while you're adjusting to parental life.
Amy and her team were fabulous. The daily updates and pictures were so wonderful. we knew our fur babies were in great hands.5+ Stars!!!!
Amy and her team are amazing! They are extremely reliable and are great with communication if there are any changes to the schedule.Greg is our dog...
always so accommodating to specific schedules and preferences
In some cases, like this one, 5 stars doesn't seem like enough. Amy and her team at Game Time Dog Services are amazing! I adopted my dog from a shelter earlier this year, and he is still very particular about who he trusts. Game Time assigns your family both a primary walker and a backup walker to make sure you are covered, and he took to both Amy and Fernie immediately at their very first meeting. I was home a couple of times when each had arrived to walk him, and I saw both the excitement and adoring look in my boy's eyes when he saw them. My pup is pretty high energy, and they were both great at calming him and exercising him at the same time.I reached out to Amy in October the week before a Monday surgical procedure because the family that was supposed to keep my little guy for me while I recovered couldn't do it after all, and it was too late to board him. Amy and her team stepped in immediately to fill the void by walking him twice a day for the first couple of weeks, and we were daily customers up until my move out of the Austin area. They helped keep him happy during a stressful time, and I will be forever grateful for their responsiveness, flexibility, and professionalism, and the great care they provided for my pup.Thank you, Game Time!!
Game Time has been a life saver going back to the office after working from home with my furry friends during Covid. They are wonderful with my dogs and are very reliable. I love getting their daily updates and photos from their time with my dogs. They offer many different services and have customized pricing with a very easy to use scheduling system. I highly recommend Game Time Dog Services and my dogs absolutely agree!
Amy from Game Time Dog Services was absolutely amazing the day of our wedding! She not only did an amazing job watching Lulu, but she helped us out with photos and gave my bridesman tips on walking her down the aisle! She was extremely communicative before, during, and after the wedding. In addition to being the wedding pet attendant, she also took our dog back to our house after the reception for at-home dog boarding! We knew Lulu was in great hands and we were able to enjoy our special day worry-free! We highly recommend using her for any of your pet needs!!
Amy and the entire Game Time team are quite simply the best. She specifically went above and beyond in taking great care of our dogs at our wedding. In particular she was super helpful be somehow managed to stay out of the way!You won’t regret trusting your pups to Amy’s team!
Game Time is great. They have been our dog walkers for over 2 years and take such great care of my puppies. I use them daily and for when I travel. I know someone is always there to check on the dogs and they provide me updates and photos every day. Highly recommend!!!
Seriously I can't say enough about what an outstanding experience I've had with Game Time, truly 12/10! Amy, the owner is so fun, energetic, and knowledgeable I felt totally confident in her from the moment we first spoke on the phone. The app they use is super easy, always had great communication with my walker, and they even send cute pictures and a recap of how the walk went! After just a few walks I noticed a huge improvement in how my 2 pups walked when I took them out the other day, so easily worth the money.
2 stars for challenges with communication, professionalism, and area of service.The good: of interactions with 4 dog walkers in 7 months, one was only...
Amy and her team of pet care experts are truly passionate about what they do. They love animals and spoiled us with their outstanding service. Amy is punctual, communicative, and astute when it comes to comes to the needs of all her fur babies. Her willingness for her clients redefines excellent service. I felt like I could call her and her team at any hour of the day and I would get a response and follow on action. Amy is loved by the client, the staff, and the fur babies!
Destiny has been walking our dogs since last summer and we couldn't be happier! The pups know what time she comes and are always waiting by the door for...
Game Time has been so convenient for our family! Amy and her staff are very accommodating and trustworthy. They take great care of our new puppy when we are at work. Highly recommend!
We LOVE Game Time and so does our dog! We often have to put in late requests because of the nature of our work and they are always responsive and accommodating. The walkers are absolutely amazing, we get pictures and a check lists every time they come and it's a wonderful update to get when having to be away from our pup. They have consistently gone above and beyond and are extremely professional. The whole process is seamless, easy, and stress free. We couldn't recommend a better dog service in Austin, Game Time is one of our favorite local businesses.
8.29.20 was our wedding day and will always be an amazing memory for my wife and I. One of the reasons for us having such a great wedding has to be the care and love that Amy showed to our dog Simba during the entire wedding weekend. I have NEVER been someone to write a review for anything, but Amy was so professional, organized, and kind-spirited that I need to express how thankful we are so that hopefully someone sees this and decides to book her for their wedding. From the first day we met, she immediately showed her positive attitude when greeting our dog Simba. He is a little skittish at first when meeting new people but after just a couple minutes with her, he was excited for their first walk and that carried over for the next couple of days. Now you might be saying that anyone can be a dog walker, what makes Amy so special? She really shined the day of the wedding. She was able to keep Simba entertained and locked in the entire time during our photographs and other empty time. She also was extremely understanding and receptive when some things didn’t go according to plan on our end, and did an outstanding job of being calm under pressure. Finally, when it was time for her to drop off Simba in our room after the ceremony, she did so quietly and without any bother to myself or my wife. She quickly talked to my father, gave him an update, and the key and then left us a simple text so that we were up to date on everything.One of my favorite features that Amy’s service includes is that they send you a summary email after each walk that includes pictures of their journey. I loved looking at Simba exploring downtown Austin!I would recommend them 10/10 and will even be working with them again, whenever we visit Austin with our dog. Please do the smart thing and hire them!
We LOVE the team at Game Time. Our 2 doggies get the royal treatment from everyone there. I feel a little like chopped liver as my dogs seem to forget about me and RUN when they see their walker arrive. We all know they are going to get plenty of exercise, play, tummy rubs and love. I appreciate the follow up email with notes about the day....and photos!In addition, every single person at Game Time is friendly and professional. They know my pups and give me a heads up when they see something out of the ordinary and they really seem to love my doggies.I can’t say enough positive things about Amy and the fantastic team she’s built over at Game Time!
I am so grateful for the exercise and love Game Time Dog Services provided my dog Toby while I was at work! Toby is a rescue and still training, and Game Time eased all my worries about how he would do walking with someone new by sending pictures and updates of how he did on his walks. His walker even refilled his Kong to keep him busy until I got home! Thank you guys so much for taking care of my guy!
These folks are awesome! They even do our cats! Of course, they require lot less walking, lol! But, more litter boxes!
Game Time saved me, or rather my sweet yellow Labrador, when my knees went out last year. I rely upon them to exercise my dog and they are absolutely up to...
A great local company. I have regular walking service and have used their multi-day pet sitting as well.They are prompt, reliable, flexible, and...
We had such a wonderful experience with the Game Time team! Amy went out of her way to meet our special needs and our puppy absolutely loved her walkers. We're sad to be moving and that we can't take them all with us!
Amy, Jessica, and Angela have been amazing! We were in need of a dog walker for our very neurotic dog. He needs an individual walk and lots of patience....
What a great service and amazing people! My pups are old english sheepdogs and they can be a handful but game time takes them out 3 times a week and they absolutely love their dog walker! Sometimes we think they are more excited to see them then us, lol! They also go the extra mile and send messages with pictures every visit which always brighten our day! They are sensitive to training regimens and can be helpful with reinforcing behaviors you're working on with your pup. Price is comparable to similar services in the area.
I am so thankful to Amy and her wonderful team who was so enthusiastic and caring about my adopted girl Winnie and helped me transition through her death. Now I have Ms. Peach and she loves when GT comes and gives her lots of belly rubs and exercise. Currently, Peach is keeping her Grandma company during the day but I miss getting the detailed updates and cute photos to share with family. A WONDERFUL team to work with!!!
The staff at Game Time are the best! We can't say enough great things about Amy (the owner) and the dog walkers. We trust them in our home and with our...
Game Time Dog Services is top notch. Here's few reasons why they are awesome:- They are a small locally owned business. Amy hires true dog lovers that really know how to handle dogs (unlike some of the big box dog walking services available, you never know what/who you are going to get). Her team is friendly and professional; my dog is so excited to see them when they come in our door.- They have an App! Life happens and it's easy to reschedule, add, cancel or send a note via the app.-Friendly staff who punctually email pictures and let you know if they did their business.- Reliable and helpful- We have a year old goldendoodle and there have been instances where there may be a torn up paper towel or once she even got sick, they have cleaned it up and let us know about the incident. Accidents happen and they were happy to help!
Our animal crew absolutely LOVES Game Time. We have two rescue dogs that are a bit leery of meeting new people, but they took to Amy instantly and quickly warmed to the rest of the walkers at Game Time. They clearly love animals and it puts our mind at ease knowing they are in such good hands. And they always take the cutest pics when they walk them!
Great walking service! Friendly, and prompt. My dog has a great time, and I love the follow up they provide after the walks. The website is fantastic for...
Amy and Game Time are the best! They take such good care of my sweet and high energy Aussie mix and consistently go above and beyond for her. We come home...
Always helpful, flexible, responsive and great with our pups! It's awesome having someone we can trust that gives our pups a break during the day while we're at work.
I have Game Time walk my sweet Murphie 4 days a week and I have been so happy with the service. They take great care of our girl! We get a message about how her walk went with pics as well. Every time I have to adjust my schedule, Amy (the owner) is quick to respond and super-flexible. Highly recommend.
When we moved cities it took us a long time to get settled so having someone scheduled to walk our dog multiple times a week was a game changer. The dog walkers were all so friendly and happy to see our dog everyday! Exceptional service!
I love Game Time Dog Services! I have a very energetic 1 year old lab mix that needs to run (Rocky) and an older three legged dog (Juno) that needs lots of love and short walks. They are flexible in their service offerings and can come by mid-day to give both dogs exactly what they need. They are true professionals and always deliver - highly recommend!
I happen to be one of 'those' dog moms. Very. VERY Particular about their care. There are three people I would trust my fur-babies with and Amy is one of them, without hesitation. Besides dog-walking, her quality of pet-sitting for overnight, or longer trips is absolutely stellar. I get regular updates and pics of how my boys are doing and it is such a relief to know that they are SO WELL taken care of if I need to be away for any length of time. I highly recommend Game Time Dog Services!
LOVE Game Time. We've been using them for over a year and now won't use anyone else. Our pup loves every walker and she loves getting a little TLC in the middle of the day! They always respond quickly and are incredibly flexible with our crazy schedules. Highly recommend!
We started using Game Time Dog Services last year, and I have nothing but good things to say. We have two medium sized dogs that have quite a lot of energy. With my wife and I both working downtown full-time, they're often inside for long periods of time during the week. Game Time was able to service our area, and provide great and consistent visits allowing them to get walks, belly rubs, and potty breaks throughout the week.Game Time offers several services for your pooches, provides a way to check and change your scheduled walks/etc, and they're extremely flexible and responsive in general... they even helped us find a home for one of our Foster puppies by posting details on their site and social media to get the word out.They truly are dog lovers, and will give your pups the love and care you do, and now our dogs have new friends that come and visit them every week!
A great local business. Flexible, professional, communicative, and genuinely caring about our young lab. Our family recommends Amy and her team to anyone...
I started using this service about 2 months ago and wish I had started years ago. Amy and Greg are great!!! Greg is reliable and dependable and I feel at ease that my dogs are getting a walk and the care they need while I am at work. I sometime have to add an extra day of service do to my work schedule and Amy is always quick to help and get that set up. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a kind, friendly service for your pets needs!!!!
Amy did an amazing job with the guest baby (meatloaf). He listened to her command and when he was restless she went above and beyond to make sure he was well cared for. Amy I want to thank you for just being so warm spirited and so down to earth. If you are in need of pet handling for any occasion I recommend GameTime.
Amy is amazing! She is truly an animal lover and it shows! Not only that, she goes out of her way to really ensure your dogs are happy and safe.
Game Time has done a great job walking our puppies once a week! Wylie and Amy are fantastic! From the get-go, Amy was warm, friendly, and cared about our pups. The first-time meeting went great and it showed how much they both liked dogs. Any time I had a schedule issue, Amy did a great job accommodating. I would recommend Game Time to anyone and everyone!
Have been super pleased with Amy and her Game Time team. They communicate well, and keep my dog active while I am away. They also have also been super helpful with some dog care issues that saved me lots of money at the Vet. They really know and love dogs.
Amy, Greg and he Game Time team are awesome. They take great care of my two older dogs, taking them on afternoon walks while I am at work. They get them fed and report any issues. They also send a photo of their time together which gives me piece of mind. Great customer service. Always flexible and willing to go the extra mile. My babies adore the Game Time team and always look forward to their visits. I highly recommend GameTome!
Wonderful experience working with Amy and Kristen! They cared for my fur baby from 8 weeks old until 1 year with weekly walks/playtime, as well as dog sitting when I was out of town. They are incredibly responsive, communicative, and readily able to help when I had some last minute work trips. They are my go to for dog walking/sitting in the Austin area.
Amy and the Game Time team are the BEST! They are dependable, reliable and trustworthy. Most importantly, they love our dogs like we do and we rest easy knowing our pups are well cared for. Their daily and overnight services are both great! I cannot recommend Game Time Dog Services more highly!
Game Time has been walking and caring for my dog since he was 7 weeks old. He is now almost 3.5. This was the first dog I've ever had and Amy's knowledge and history of the Great Dane breed made me feel incredibly comfortable. He has been well loved and well taken care of by the entire staff! I would and have highly recommended this company to care for your furry loved ones!
We love the Game Time team! We have a variable schedule that they accommodate with ease. They are reliable and responsive. Amy, Sharon, and Greg take care of our little guy named Benny (the dog). While he has come a long way since he joined our family, he's still a bit nervous and requires some special handling from time to time. Benny is happier and calmer than ever now that Game Time has entered our lives.
Game Time Dog Services is the BEST dog walker I've found in Austin - and they are very affordable. If I could rate them more than 5 stars, I would.Amy and her team routinely took my dog out every day for almost 6 months while the pup was growing up. I can say without a doubt it was a major influence on her growth and behavior during those early super-excited months. They help you customize your service too - everything from feeding medication, giving treats, different commands to practice during play, picking up packages, etc. It was really nice :)Thanks Amy + friends!
Amy and her team are the best! Trusting strangers with not only your home but your pups can be difficult but not with Game Time. They have been...
I can't recommend Amy highly enough! We have a crew of four dogs, overwhelming to say the least. They immediately could sense that Amy was a friend and I could tell that she felt the same way about them. Amy took care of them for five days for us. She sent text updates and pictures which were really comforting. Our crew suffers from allergies and she made extra effort to wipe their faces and paws, which offers them a lot of relief during these high pollen months. What really, really made me a life-long fan and loyal customer is the difference in the dogs when we came home. We've left them in the care of friends and family in the past, which I'm truly grateful for, but I have to say that the dogs have never been happy. We usually come home to a group of screaming mimies, frantically trying to say "we almost DIED without you"! This time, we came home to a group of happy, healthy, calm dogs. They were happy to see us, but they weren't stressed out and frantically distraught like they usually are. They were legitimately HAPPY. Thank you Amy and the Game Time Team!!!
Amy with Game Time is awesome and we will definitely have her back to sit for our two dogs. She texted us updates on the dogs and attached photos - so thoughtful! The pups were wiped out when we got home (thank you!!), I'm sure due to all the playtime and two-mile run :)The rates for services offered are reasonable and straightforward.
