"Janna was our dog sitter for 2 years for an older Lab that needed some special care and a flexible dog sitter for her special needs.  Janna did this so professionally, but also with love.  Her thorough notes showed her attention to detail and that she really knew Maisy's needs.  I can not say enough about how comfortable I felt with Janna watching Maisy. Maisy is gone now, but we will be back with Tip of the Tail when another dog decides to come home with us."

​"Janna and Tip of the Tail have been a part of our lives since October 2012 and I honestly don't know what I would do without her. Janna is always available and helpful in emergency situations. As soon as I met Janna, I could see the passion she has for animals and her job; the cat, which strongly dislikes most people, basically ended up on her lap during our initial meeting! I really like the fact that she took the time to get to know Winston and all of his lovely and not so lovely quirks. I feel confident that she could handle any situation that arises while they are out and about. Flexible, professional, dependable, and caring are some of the words I would use to describe Tip of the Tail. Janna gets that animals are much more than pets to many of us and truly treats each dog, cat or any other pet the same as she would her own! Tip of the Tail is definitely the service to use if you are looking for personalized pet care!"



"Janna has been coming to play with Buddy, our Golden Retriever, since he was 8 weeks old in September 2012. He looks forward to Janna's visits and is always excited to see her. Janna is incredibly reliable and gives him a ton of great exercise outside while I am at work. She even sends me cute pictures of him playing outside! I highly recommend Tip of the Tail to anyone looking for someone to give their pet a fun outing in the middle of the day. Thank you for taking such great care of Buddy!"



"Tip of the Tail, Janna Cutler, and her team are the best! They are very professional, organized, flexible, and honest. Tip of the Tail has watched our Golden Retriever, Ava, for numerous weekend and vacations, while we were traveling. Before Tip of the Tail pet sat for us the first time, Janna personally came to our house to meet Ava and learn about our routine. She also told us about Tip of the Tail and exactly what to expect. I felt so comfortable and relieved that Ava was going to be taken care of like a little princess. While we were gone Tip of the Tail sent me updates and pictures often, it was so nice. Ava gets regular walks from Tip of the Tail as well. She loves spending time with Janna Cutler an her team. I don't think there is anyone Ava gets more excited to see than Janna! I would highly recommend Tip of the Tail to anyone for their pets needs, whether it be pet sitting, walking or transport. Thank you Tip of the Tail!!!"



"Five stars for Janna and Tip of the Tail! This team has certainly set the bar high for dog care! I'm so impressed with Janna. Her level of professionalism paired with genuine compassion for animals is unrepeatable. A thousand thanks - and then some!"



"Janna and Melanie D. are terrific.  We are new to Burlington and it was nice to find them right away, so that we knew our dog was taken care of.  The first thing that comes across is their love and passion for dogs. They are great at communicating as our work schedules have been changing from week to week. They leave great notes letting us know how our four legged friend did on his walk that day.  If you are in the Burlington area, and are looking for responsible, caring, loving dog sitters and dog walkers, give them a call."



"We'll never use another pet care service again! I sincerely have to say, Tip of the Tail was the reason we were able to fully enjoy our vacation. Typically, when we go away, we worry about our dog and hope she's okay and getting the same (probably over the top) care we would be giving her if we were there. Everyday, Janna sent us picture text messages with updates of how Kaya was doing! We didn't question for a second that she was getting the attention, exercise, and overall care that we would give her ourselves! When Janna stopped by when we returned from vacation, it was truly comforting to see Kaya so excited to see her. Thank you Tip of the Tail for allowing us to have a care-free vacation and providing Kaya with the post quality care!"



"I would absolutely recommend Janna to family and friends! In fact, I already have! She is trustworthy, dependable, and has a great passion for her profession and her furry friends! Many thanks to you, Janna, for caring for my Hazel."

"Over the years when we've traveled we would split up our pet family - sending our Golden Retriever and Yellow Lab out to board and having a family member come care for the three cats. Those experiences never left us feeling good; the dogs were stressed about being away and the cats were out of sorts having more than just us gone for a week. The dogs would return home from being boarded with destroyed toys, pet beds and even injuries. We knew we wanted a way to have all the pets stay safely and comfortably at home, but unfortunately didn't have a family member familiar with dogs and able to take on the full responsibility. At one point, we did hire a friend's daughter to house/pet-sit for us, but that ended up a disaster when she delegated the responsibility to her brother and he ended up having a party at our house with the cats hiding under the beds. We really thought we'd never be able to go away again after that. Then, I saw a glowing review on Front Porch Forum and we discovered Tip of the Tail! Janna filled in for me beautifully for a few days in December 2012 when I was called out of town on short notice. But I can tell you, especially after our February 2013 week-long vacation, our worries have been finally put to rest. Janna treats our five pets AND our home as though they are her very own. She is extremely conscientious and a true professional, and now our pets' new best friend. Janna has an eye for detail and communicates often, clearly and effectively. I trust this service and can't recommend them highly enough."

"I am writing to rave about the services I receive from Janna, owner of Tip of the Tail. Janna is a wonderful addition to my dog, Gibson's life. She has a key to our home and comes daily to walk, take Gibson to the park, throw the ball around, and even take an adventure through the woods at Sunny Hollow. On cold days, she will bring him out and spend the rest of the time inside playing and showing Gibson attention. Janna provides daily journal entries of their day together, a text message and/or a picture of the dogs romping around together from time to time. When Janna text me one day to tell me Gibson's butt shakes with excitement every time she comes to the door, I knew she knew my dog well (because he does that to me). It made me so happy that he is so happy to see her! I would recommend Tip of the Tail to any family member, friend, or stranger - your animals will be well cared for!"

"There are Dog Whisperers, and then, there are Dog Angels. Janna is our Dog Angel. She loves our two Min Pins as her own. Janna knows what our dogs need, and gives them more. There is no one better."

Tip of the Tail Testimonials:


"Janna and the Tip of the Tail Team are the BEST in town! Before watching our little Loxi during our wedding weekend, Janna and Nicole did a home visit with us to meet and greet our pup and to go over Tip of The Tail services! It was a wonderful introduction and helped put our mind at ease! Tip of The Tail came to pick up and drop off Loxi at our home, which made things super convenient! Janna and the team members I have met always had a smile on their face-- you can tell they are truly passionate about what they do every day! Loxi LOVED her time with Tip of The Tail, and came back to us in the best of spirits! We received periodic texts (and even an adorable facebook update) of how Loxi was doing! We would never use another pet service company again! I would recommend Janna and her team to absolutely everyone in this area of Vermont. We are lucky to have them!!"
