Jim has been my dog walker a few
days a week since Sept. 2008. I really
appreciate Jim's flexibility, friendliness
and reliability. His prices are extremely reasonable, and his service enables me to stay later at work, if necessary, without worrying about my dog's well being. Jim communicates about how the walk went, including if my dog behaves unusually. He even lets me know whether my dog has
gone to the bathroom (or not)! I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a
dog walker in Philadelphia!

Super came with some anxiety issues.
She misses us like crazy when we’re not home and does some of the most bizarre things imaginable. We’ve tried everything: crate, no crate; and finally have a routine that seems to work for the most part. Throughout all of this, Jim has been a
great constant, and as helpful, friendly
and attentive as any dog walker
in the Fairmount and Philadelphia area.

I’ve left Wyatt and Greta alone for a
few days, but having to go away on for a week and a half, I needed someone to
check in on them and take care of them. A friend had referred Jim to me. He came by regularly to give them food and refresh
their water. He’d let them out in the yard
for fresh air, even emptied and took out
the litter. Definitely going to call him
again should I need a pet sitter. A real
value and a real nice guy, and I love his
pet portraits.

Terrific pet care.
Jim Kernicky is dependable, responsible, affordable, and my cat loved him. I would
recommend him to anyone
who needs a pet sitter.

Jim cared for my cat Evie while I was
out of town this summer. I wanted someone
I could trust to check in on her while I was
away. He fed her, refreshed her water, cleaned
her litter box, and gave her some much-needed attention. He even called to give me an
update and check to make sure he was
following all of my instructions correctly. He is very personable and conscientious; I
would definitely use his pet service any time
I go out of town. His prices are very
reasonable; he also has a genuine love of
animals and takes great pet portraits!

Two Paws Up!! Jim is
trustworthy and has taken great
care of my 2 dogs for a daily walk
or even a 3-day trip. He even
leaves a note for each walk to let us know how it went (and if the dogs
did #1 & 2)!!!! Definitely
recommend Jim as a dog walker
for his reliability, care of our dogs,
and affordability.

I have been using Jim Kernicky
and Fairmount Pet Service since
May and he has always been very personable, flexible with some last minute requests and my dog loves
him! I shopped a good deal around
the area and you can't beat his
rates and dependability. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Jim if you
need a dependable and reasonable
dog walker. He was willing to deal
with special circumstances while my
puppy was still very young, and had
no problem with flexibility around
our timeline and needs. Best of all,
he took wonderful pet portraits of our
pup Bruno which we will cherish
forever, a great value add for all his

I was given a puppy for Christmas and due
to my busy work schedule I needed a trust
worthy and reliable dog walker right away. I contacted Jim and he has been my daily dog
walker everyday since. He is extremely flexible
and has done a fantastic job with my puppy.
Everyday he leaves a card so when I get
home from work I can see how she behaved and even if she went to the bathroom. He even called
me one day when something seemed wrong with her. Jim is not only trustworthy, but is also
reliable, friendly and has an unbeatable rate! I
highly recommend Fairmount Pet Service for
anyone in the Art Museum area looking for a dog walker. Thanks Jim!

Jim is a phenomenal dog walker. He
is extremely trustworthy, flexible and
dependable. My neighbors have
commented to me about how much time
he spends playing with our dog when he
provides dog walking services. Recently he provided the best pet sitter service for our
dog, cat (and fish!) while we were away.
He came over 3 times a day during a
blizzard to ensure they were well cared
for. I can't say enough about Jim's dog
walking and pet sitting services.

Being a dog parent, I always worry about
my dog Dagwood. He can be an anxcious dog
that doesn't trust people straight away. For this reason I did a lot of research for pet sitters when I had to go overseas and I choose Fairmount Pet Service. Jim really adapts to a dog straight
away and treats each dog in a unique way, considering their own individual personality. This worked out so well with Dagwood, even when we meet Jim in the street during our walks, Dagwood wants to be with him! As for myself, I always wanted to become a dogwalker and through
getting to know the reliable pet sitting services
that Jim offers, I now walk a few dogs for Fairmount Pet Service!
