"Martha provides the best dog-sitting service we've ever found - in 4 states and 2 countries. Instead of the usual impersonal boarding kennel experience, it's more like going to Aunt Martha's house for a visit. When I dropped off my dog she bounded happily into the house, and when I picked her up a week later, she was happy & calm. Best of all, Martha sent fun daily email reports - complete with photos of my collie's adventures! The peace of mind knowing that my dog was in good hands in a home environment, getting affection & individual attention took the worry out of my trip."

"Karluk is wonderful. He seems to have gotten the idea of going outside. You are a wonder worker.... You are the best and Karluk was lucky to meet you. Thanks."

"We were so incredibly fortunate that Martha was able to provide dog-sitting/care for Jenny while we had to be out of town for medical reasons for almost 3 weeks. When we came back to Juneau, Jenny was even more balanced, content, self-assured, and healthy than she was when we left. Martha gave us updates as often as we wished while we were gone, successfully worked with Jenny on our choice of training priorities as well, provided appropriate clothing to keep comfortable in the inclement weather, as well as giving her plenty of 1:1 time, exercise and T-Touch. I did not have one moment of concern about Jenny's physical, mental or emotional health while we were gone, and we were so thrilled and surprised to get back an even more balanced dog than we left. Martha also gave us a thorough write-up of Jenny's care and concerns when we returned.

I whole-heartedly recommend Martha (Canines Unlimited) for all services and products, including the strongest recommendation for dog-sitting services that I have ever given anyone for anything. I have full confidence that you will be 100% satisfied and every bit as pleased as we were when you return."

"First, the dogs being with you took all the worry out of being away from them--a first for me--especially after receiving the emails and pictures of the dogs. In fact, the emails and pictures brought us a great deal of pleasure. (The pictures were like "icing on the cake.") For the first time in many years, I will feel comfortable leaving home for a two or three week vacation--something I have not done for years--and even then, uncomfortably so. You see, our dogs are the center of my life.

Secondly, the dogs came home better behaved than when they left. You definitely taught them (and us) a thing or two (or three or four) to help with their behavior. I really appreciate your tips about handling, and will follow through as you suggested.

Thirdly, your sincere love and caring for the dogs was apparent. When you talked about Josie, literally tears came to your eyes. Where in the world are you going to find someone to take care of your dogs whose love comes very close to that of your own?!

So. . . Thank you so very much!!"

Larry Bussone, Juneau

"Ted hasn't missed a beat getting back to routine. ...

Thank you so very much for your care during my surgery. I shall shout your praises from the rooftops."

Bobbie Lowden and Ted, Juneau

"Thanks, Martha. Gandhi looks wonderful! I haven't seen his coat shine like this in years. I will be taking him back to you for professional grooming. I can tell that he had an excellent visit/stay with you. ...We'll be in touch. Again, many thanks! Your service is invaluable; our dog came back looking and feeling a hundred times better than when we dropped him off."

Karina Reyes, Juneau


"We are very fortunate in Juneau to have someone like Martha Fischbach here. Having lost my last two dogs to cancer I am now more diligently researching nutrition and other modalities for dogs. I am a firm believer that the food/sustenance that we put into our bodies as humans and what we give our dogs to eat is a major factor for maintaining a healthy body and prevention of illnesses, including cancer. I have read many articles about how many of even the most well known dog and cat foods on the market are very low quality when truly analyzed and how they can contribute to many illnesses in dogs and cats. Martha offers very healthy and nutritious dog (and cat) foods that are not available anywhere else in Juneau. I was so pleased to read a recent article in The Whole Dog Journal where I saw their list of recommended dog foods and realized Martha sells these same brands. Not only does she offer us healthy dog food, but she offers many other complementary and alternative modalities to help keep our dogs healthy or treat them when they are ill, both physically and emotionally (fears, anxiety, etc.) such as TTouch, use of colors, stones/gems, music for healing. I highly recommend her talents and products to pet owners here in Juneau. "
