Trudy is the best. We have used a lot of dog sitters over the years. Many dog walkers and borders take too many dogs. I have never seen Trudy with too many dogs. They come home tired and happy. Trudy opens up her home to the dogs. She gives them lots of one-on-one love and attention. I never feel guilty about leaving our dog with her.
She is also an excellent trainer. She really gets results. And if all this is too much, Trudy is a world-class dog photographer.

Trudy is an excellent pet care provider and a fabulous pet photographer. She treats every dog in her care as if they were her own. She cultivates positive interactions in her dog play groups so her dogs become well socialized and well behaved in addition to getting their exercise. My dog is always so excited to see Trudy that I can go on vacation with the peace of mind that she's happy and in excellent hands. Marcia Reilly, Half Moon Bay, CA
Trudy is fantastic. She took great care of my little best buddy Duke when I left town. Because of Trudy and her obvious love for dogs, I was able to enjoy my vacation without worrying whether or not Duke was being well cared for. Duke has since passed on, but Trudy is now looking after my new loving lab, and I couldn't be happier with her continued professionalism, love for my dog, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing Trudy is 100% reliable.
Bonus points that Trudy is also an amazing photographer and has captured some of the best pictures I have of my dogs. I'm looking forward to scheduling a photo shoot with her and my new Labrador love soon! Check out her site! trudygardnerphotography

Trudy trained our dog Cassius and now he his a part of her day care program. He is devoted to her. His manners are much improved. Every dog should have a Trudy in their lives.

Trudy is the best! The most important qualities in a walking service is someone who is passionate about dogs AND reliable. Trudy is both in spades. Our hound, a high energy pointer, needs to go out EVERY day, rain or shine or he goes crazy. She is very reliable and great about getting back to me when I call or text her or have last minute schedule changes. Our hound absolutely loves her and comes home exhausted. She cleans him up before letting him back in the house which is important when he has been playing hard. When we go on vacation, we know he is in good hands with her. I can not recommend her highly enough!

Trudy is awesome! Our dog Alice just loves her too. She gives all her dogs great love and attention and treats them as if they were their own. Alice loves all the fun dogs in her daycare group and the great dog park and hiking outings. Can't say enough good things about her. 4 paws up!

Trudy has been a godsend for our aging shepherd who is in a wheelchair. I always feel great knowing that Trudy will give her as much love and attention as I would (or more) and she attends to every special need no matter how yucky. Trudy is also an amazing pet photographer and has captured the essence of our dear girl on film. We will treasure these memories forever.

Half Moon Bay Dogs is a wonderful experience for both your pets and you. Trudy takes great care of your pets and keeps you updated on the status of your pet while you are away from them. We discovered Half Moon Bay Dogs on Merchant Circle and can say that we are very happy with the service!! (and so is our dog!)

You know you've got a GREAT pet sitter when your dog gets excited to see that person walk through the door. Our German Shepherd; Rio and our previous dog; 15 year old dog; Boomer, were both lovingly cared for by Trudy for several years. Trudy is incredibly reliable and REALLY good at what she does. She has a way of communicating with animals that lets you know she is indeed, in tune with them and attentive to their needs. Trudy is one of those people you can completely trust to take care of your beloved pals. I highly recommend her and encourage you to call her today.

Trudy is amazing! She truly loves the dogs in her care and goes beyond the call of duty on a regular basis, including taking our dog to the vet if we need her to and driving my son home from school one day! She helped us train our puppy and is so incredibly knowledgable about all things related to dogs. Trudy is like a family member and we love her as much as our dog does.

I have a 7 year old pug named Sage who loves Trudy. I always know that she is happy and greatly cared for when she is with Trudy. Sage is always treated like part of her family when she is in her care. I would trust no one else with my dog! I often will take Sage to the dog park in the mornings and the first thing she does is run right by all the dogs to Trudy for her morning cuddle. The dogs at the park who are with Trudy are always happily playing together or chasing balls. I would highly recommend Trudy to anyone who is looking for daily care or boarding!

Trudy Gardner of Half Moon Bay Dogs is one of the most caring, competent, reliable, trustworthy people we know. She has been our dog-walker/care giver for over a year and has won over our dogs’ hearts. We have two dogs, one with disabilities, and Trudy has given Mojo a new lease on life. He has been given the opportunity to socialize with other dogs without any danger of being re-injured. Trudy acts as his Secret Service Agent! When we are out of town, Maddie and Mojo stay in Trudy’s care. No matter when we return, they are always disappointed to see us. She is completely attuned to any animal’s needs and wants. She gives every animal unconditional love and with that love can train them to be our well-behaved, treasured friends. Trudy is a woman of high morals, true integrity, deep compassion and rich humor. We highly recommend Trudy to anyone with furry or feathered friends. There is no one else like her and you will not regret choosing her to care for your pets.
