Doreen has been a loyal and reliable dog walker for us since 2013.  She has literally never missed a day or a walk.  My dog Snoop Dog sits in the window upstairs and as soon as he sees her truck he flies down the stairs to greet her.  She is reliable, kind and a wonderful dog walker.   She is attentive and observant.  She leaves notes to let us know how Snoop’s walk went that day and notices if he seems tired or if anything seems amiss.  She has been able to help us out on weekends and holidays when our work schedule is hectic.  Doreen is 100% reliable.  I simply cannot say enough good things about Doreen, her service and her kindness to our Snoop Dog.  I highly recommend her.  She is a part of our family!

Doreen Poirier has been looking after little Felix since 2015. Until that time my husband and I could always count on family or close friends for pet care. Circumstances changed. Honestly, Doreen has been a God send. Doreen is kind, professional, and knowledgeable.
Felix by nature is a scaredy cat; yet he has easily warmed up to Doreen.
Furthermore, Felix has renal disease, a common condition of aging cats. It has been a great comfort to know that Doreen will take him to a caring vet in our absence; should it be necessary.
Doreen is also very thorough! And when you are traveling or away from home for any reason, Doreen is accessible by phone or email with timely updates.
I highly recommend Doreen and Wag a tail for your beloved animal care. 
As the Hawaiians say, Doreen is part of our Ohana.
Sincerely,   K B

We have had the privilege of having our 10 year-old diabetic cat Panther, well looked after by Wag-a-tail Pet Care services.



During our Thanksgiving weekend away and our recent Christmas one-week holiday Panther received both of his injections daily. Panther was reluctant to eat, drink, and use his litter box both trips as we later believed he was anxious, or upset, that we were away. Wag-a-tail did not take any chances with Panther’s health and well-being and were ready to take Panther to the local vet. Fortunately, each time, Panther began to eat, drink, and use his litter box just as the decision had been made to take him to the vet.



We were looking for a new vet and Wag-a-tail Pet Care service informed us of a 24-hr. vet called the Bristol Vet just five minutes from our house that was highly recommended. This is now our vet.



Panther was given lots of love and attention and we came home to a very happy and healthy cat both times. We will continue to use Wag-a-tail Pet Care services and we highly recommend this company to anyone who requires caring, responsible, and dedicated people to look after their pets.



Doreen has been walking our 11 year old Lab Yukon since 2007 whenever we go away or are going to be away from the house for an extended period. We now have a new puppy Hudson and I'm sure he will benefit from Doreen's services. She is amazing, responsible, trustworthy, hardworking and has never let us down. Of course, the most important thing is Doreen is really good with animals. I know my dog is always happy to see her! Thanks Doreen for allowing us to go away on holiday with peace of mind, not having to worry about our pet(s).


We've depended on Doreen to pay a daily visit to our mini schnauzer since she was a young dog. Now that Cordie is nine and has lost her vision, we can rest easy knowing that "our baby" is in Doreen's safe and loving hands when she goes for her lunchtime walk. Thanks to Doreen, we have total peace of mind when it comes to the care of a much-loved member of our family. - Diane L.

Doreen, Just a note to say thanks for the wonderful care you take of Hershey. Through thick and thin, good weather bad weather and even when you have been under the weather I have seen you looking after our "Baby". Its a true testament to your skills when we see Hershey up and at the door tail wagging when you show up for her walk. THANK YOU. JR


We have had Doreen look after our dog Tayle for over four years, as a dog walker and dog sitter. Prior to Doreen we had several dog walkers, but Doreen is best person that we have worked with, by far. She is always dependable and reliable, and consistent with times that you need; – we never worry or give Tayle a second thought when we have arranged for a visit from Doreen. I would highly recommend Doreen to any pet owner." M T. owner of 12 year old Tayle, an English Cocker Spaniel

Very reliable and flexible. Doreen has been walking Max for 9 years now, and we've never had any issues with her service, always on time, always friendly and trustworthy. Doreen house sat Max many times while I was on vacation and I was never disappointed. Great service. Hanna


Doreen is the utmost caring professional when handling your pets and home while you are away. She will keep in as little or as much communication with you as you would like to help you stayed informed of things as well. Having someone like Doreen taking care of our Frosty and checking in on home while we are way gives us a great peace of mind. Meghan.


Doreen at Wag-a-tail has provided an invaluable dog walking service to our family for over 8 years. We have had four dogs over this period of time covering all ages, from young puppies to senior dogs and Doreen has managed them all with the utmost reliability and professionalism. Most of all, our dogs love their walks with Doreen and wait for her patiently on dog-walking days. You can always count on Wag-a-tail to be there when needed whether it is for a regular walk or an emergency. You never have to worry about your pets being cared for. Cathy and Ian C.
