    Definately a nice site. There is a dead pic on the front page just fyi.

    your titles might be a tad long, so they might get chopped off on the end when search bots index, but all in all a solid effort. I don't see anything that would drive a surfer away.

    very nive.

    Looks good.

    I'd sacrifice the big dog photo for more text space. Not sure why folks use such tiny hard-to-read font in a gray-scale on the home page, unless it's part of a template and they did not change it.

    The dog could remain, but just be reduced to 1/2 the size.

    The layout looks good.

    :)

    I think its a modest attempt, only if you did it yourself. Im not trying to be critical, but all your services on the first page should be a link to your inner pages. Your towns you service should also be a link to your town landers.

    You have no call to action, you need a request form as well on each page, mini one.

    Your site only has 5 pages, Google is going to see that as a thin site and it wont rank. Your page titles are almost all the same, your page descriptions are all the same as well.

    Take off the visitor counter, its too 1995.

    On every page you need your business name, address, and phone number EXACTLY the way it is entered into your google places listing.

    Its a good looking page, but it needs lots of work.

    Personally I think graphically it is well above average. I like the colors, the layout and the overall design better than most sites I see here.

    I don't agree that only being 5 pages will hurt you with google. My site is 5 pages as well and I come out on top in any google search for about 30 different cities and that is without any effort. I won't say for sure that it won't hurt but my own experice would say it shouldn't be a problem.

    I do think I would look for another photo about the same size to replace the dog photo. I don't think it hurts but a different photo would help.

    I do think I would put your contact info on every page. If I were a customer searching for someone I want to know where he is without looking too hard.

    Personally I think you did a great job and that your efforts will turn out well.
