    I started researching pet sitters when I had a 3 week trip scheduled out of the country and decided it was a little too long to impose on friends. Emerson Errand Services had a competitive price and I was comfortable with them after a first meeting. I was able to choose the dates they visited and received pics of my fur baby while I was away. I have used their services on a subsequent trip and plan to use them in the future. Highly recommend!

    They were nice, but I was immediately slightly concerned during our meet and greet that they were not interacting with my dog at all- just the people. This may have been due to my tardiness to the meeting; nonetheless, it still made me a bit nervous. They took care of my dog as described, but accidentally left the poop bag in the house on one of the days. Overall, I would recommend them and would use them again in a pinch.

    Hi Lindsey, We're sorry you weren't more satisfied with our service, and were nervous to start out. If I were in the same situation, I would probably have felt the same. I'm very sorry we didn't state aloud that we try not to push pets to interact past what they're comfortable, and Pepper didn't seem to keen on interacting. We're also deeply sorry for our forgetfulness in leaving the poop bag inside. I was kicking myself over that one. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to help rectify this. Again, we truly apologize for the misunderstanding and forgetfulness, and hope you will still consider us in the future. Pepper was a great pup to walk.
