Jim, Olga, and Viktor are simply the best! They have been walking my dog for about a year and have been amazingly reliable, flexible, and caring. My dog loves them all, and they really love him, too. It's also nice to get photos and updates when they walk my dog. I'm so glad I found them and am so grateful for the outstanding care they provide my dog.

JD's Canine Cruiser is amazing!  They are super reliable, and always available in case of emergency.  My dog loved his walker, and the daily visits and walks in the middle of the work day did wonders for his behavior.  Highly recommended!

Jim, Olga and Viktor have been my dog walkers since January 2015.  There was never a time that they weren't available, even when I made a last minute request, and I always came home to a happy dog.  I especially appreciated the daily pictures and updates.

After an unsuccessful disc surgery, my dog was unable to walk without a lot of help.  I know it was difficult taking care of him during this time, but Jim and his team really went the extra mile accomodating him.  Especially Viktor who was his walker for the last several months of his life.  

From the bottom of my heart, thank you to JD's for taking such excellent care of my fur baby.  I will not hesitate to use them again when I get another dog.

I'm so relieved we found Jim. He and his team are awesome. They really care about our pets and doing what is right. I look forward to getting my daily pictures and updates on my two pups. If you are looking for someone to take as good care of your pets as you would, look no further.

Jim has helped us out several times in last minute situations where we had to go out of town. Our German Shepherd does not do well in boarding and has hurt himself due to his high anxiety. When we travel we have Jim come in and hang out with him. We couldn't be happier with his services! Highly recommend Jim.

We moved to Centreville about 6 months ago and were in dire need of a dog walker. I chose Jim and Olga because of the great reviews on Yelp. Jim came to our home twice to meet with the pups and the second time, he brought Viktor. Viktor is great with the dogs - they absolutely love him!

There were multiple times I had to do last minute cancellations or need an extra walk in case we were working late. And each time, Jim was extremely flexible and responded to me very fast! Thank you guys for your great service!

We were using a different company but decided to switch to JD's because of the phenomenal reviews. And we really glad that we did!
Olga comes and walks our two dogs two to three times a week. And after each walk, I love that she sends us pictures and cute messages about their walk together. Our puppy, Waldo, is super hyper so she always has something extra cute to say about him!
Our older dog, Winston, is usually very weary of strangers so I was super impressed when Olga sent us a picture on thier first day with both dogs in hand! The last walker it took almost a month before Winston would go out with them.
The prices are reasonable. We get a 20 minute walk for $18 for two dogs. I wish they would get a longer walk at that price (considering most other places offer 30 minutes for the same price) but for the sake of trust, happiness and quality, we are staying with JD's!
I love that this is a family run business and they are super flexible and laid back. When we need to switch days or have billing questions or accommodation requests, they are always availble!
I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a dog walker!

Love Love Love!!  If you are looking for someone who will love your pet as much as you do, look no further!!  Jim, Olga and Viktor are phenomenal!  We have an English bulldog puppy and he absolutely loves them!  They are so caring and nurturing with him and they definitely treat him like their own, exactly what a new bullie mommy like me was looking for!  They come 2x a day to take Critter (11 weeks old right now and growing like a weed) on his walks and they send me pictures and videos of him from each of their walks.  It gives me peace of mind when I can't be there with him.  I would recommend JD's to anyone who is looking for the BEST animal care out there...they are #1!

Jim, Olga and Viktor are truly the BEST!  We recently moved to Chantilly, VA and the move really sent my Chow for a loop, he became very weary of people which wasn't like him.  On their first visit Jim, Olga and Viktor came in and sat right down on the floor with our dog and he went right over and sat down in Viktor's lap and that was it, Viktor was the chosen one. We just got back from a week long family event and all I can say is WOW, I got texts from Viktor on every visit letting me know how it all went. We also have a cat that needed medication and Viktor was wonderful.I truly can't say enough about this family and their quality of service.  I HIGHLY recommend them for your pets care.

We recently went on vacation for a week and we have a hard time boarding our dog because she doesn't get along well with other dogs.  Jim and Olga were wonderful and they took great care of her.  They came by to meet us and our dog before we left and they sent us pictures while we were gone.
We would definitely use them again while we're out of town.

Jim & Olga came to us as a referral for pet sitting and now we have evolved into a wonderful friendship.  Animal lovers know each other and that is just who they are! They got to know us AND our boys before they began caring for them - all their little quirks do not come as surprises as they are ready for them. They really care for the well being of you and your family member when you are away. It's like having an aunt and uncle coming to care for your babies when you cannot.

Jim and Olga of JDs Canine Cruiser are wonderful.  I recently took a new job where I would not be close enough to home where I could walk my dog myself during lunch, so after searching for Dog Walker service, I stumbled upon their website and was intrigued enough to contact them on short notice.  They both came out to the house to meet Cody, my 12 year old Yellow Lab and then started providing walking service the following Monday.   They both seemed to care about animals and dogs and go out of their way to make them happy.
Olga will take a picture of Cody during their walk or play time and text it to me with some funny comments about.  I get a kick out of them while at work, along with the peace of mind that Cody has some time outdoors during the day while I am at work.  
If you are in the need of dog walking services, I would highly recommend them!!!

Reliable dog walker in Chantilly

I'm thankful that I found Jds Canine Cruiser. My dog is very shy but is a good dog -- his handler needs to be very patient. Further, I need my dog walker to be very flexible to accommodate my changing schedule. Olga and Jim definitely delivered. They were easy to work with around my schedule and took the time to get to know my pup. We were able to set up a schedule that works for both of us. More importantly, they took the time to get to know my dog. On the initial visit, Olga stopped by and spent several minutes to get a sense of my dog's temperament. And after a couple of walks, I get a feedback that everything was going smoothly. They even played with him while I was away! Needless to say, they're definitely my "go to" dog walker service.

Jim and Olga are great!  I called them when I got my second pup at only 7-8 weeks old I needed someone to walk him mid-day.  They came over and spent time with both pups to get them comfortable with them. They have proven to be trustworthy, dependable and flexible.

Olga has been great at getting Tiberius to walk on his leash.  She is always very helpful when it comes to teaching him new things and making sure that she enforces our guidelines for him. I am so happy that I found JDs Canine Cruiser to take care of my pups while I'm at work.

I can't board my Pomeranian's because they're too neurotic. I had to go on vacation and needed to find an alternative solution and I'm so glad I choose JD's Canine Cruiser! Super friendly, obviously a big animal lover and best of all, I came home to two happy, well fed Pomeranian's and I will definitely use JD's in the future!
(**Note: I opted to have JD's come walk my dogs 2x per day)

Jim and Olga Diana have been great at walking my German Shepherd dog during the day for about two full months now. My husband used to take a long lunch break to do run the midday walk for our pup (he needs to potty up to 4 or 5 times a day) but now thanks to JD's Canine Cruiser he can save the drive and dedicate the time to his projects. It took a while for us to make up our minds about hiring or not a dog walker and after having JD's we have realized how much better it is weighting time, gas, mileage, traffic, etc... Our dog *LOVES* them and we feel our pup is in good hands and the keys to our place are safe.

Jim is a wonderful resource and I would trust him anytime with my dog, Oscar. He is very flexible and willing to go the extra mile to make sure Oscar's needs are met which gives me tremendous peace of mind. I would not hesitate to recommend JD's Canine Cruiser to anyone looking for a kind and reliable pet sitter or dog walker.

Vacation dog walking in Chantilly, VA 

My husband and I have an American Bulldog for almost 2 years. We dearly love this dog and never leave her alone before.Not long time ago I had to go on a trip for two weeks. My husband's schedule is pretty hectic and he didn't have much time to pay attention to Lily (dog's name). So we decided to look for a reliable person to take care of the dog with walking and playing.Through our good friends we were refereed to JD's Canine Cruiser whose owner is Jim Diana.We had a wonderful experience with this company. Jim walked and played with our dog every morning for those 2 weeks. He showed absolute love and compassion for the dog. Did everything what we were asking for. Lily stayed happy all this time while Mommy was out of town :). Next time we are on our vacation we know whom to ask to stay with Lily!
I definitely would recommend his business to anyone because Jim's love to animals is genuine.Natalia and Mike Keenan

Jim has been so great with our new labradoodle puppy. Not really sure how we could have managed in the first few weeks. He was so attentive even texting pictures of our puppy after his visits to let us know everything was OK. I can't recommend him more highly. Thanks so much Jim!!

Thank you Jim for helping us out with our cat. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that he was very well taken care of, fed on time and had your company during the week. And thanks for taking him to the vet for his regular check and shots.We will definitely use your services again and will recommend you to our friends!
