I was late in scheduling a pet sitter for the Christmas holidays and was happy to be contacted by Just Ask Meghan. Our pet sitter's name was Cindy; she was very nice and took good care of my cats. Everything was handled professionally and was as promised. Will definitely be using their service again!!

We hired Just Ask Meghan to assist with pet sitting for our older cat that needed medication 2 times per day. We were informed via text how our cat was doing throughout the long weekend. We are very appreciative of the high quality care given to our pet. We would highly recommend Just Ask Meghan!

Can not find the words to say how pleased I was with the pet sitting service. My cats were very content and Cindi is a jewel, going above the call of duty on many things. Will definately use them again and again.

I use Loving Paws for dog walking and pet sitting. They are extremely conscientious and let me know if they are running late. Every time they take care of my pet, they send a text and a picture to let me know how she is doing. I would recommend them to any pet owner in the area.

Anita did a great job taking care of our babies (two cats) while we were on vacation. Anita is a great communicator, constantly keeps you informed, and send lots of pics and videos. We've already rebooked Anita for our future pet sitting needs.

Kim, truly lives up to I Love Your Dog. You can tell from the minute you meet her that she has a very special way with dogs and that there isn't a dog out there that she can't have eating out of her hand in no time. You would be hard pressed to find a trainer or dog sitter that would treat your pet more like her own than Kim Thomas. Kim also has an online retail store at iloveyourdog.net. Her treats are all custom made by her and are healthy and reasonably priced. She carries a fun line of dog toys and many miscellaneous items. Kim Thomas IS customer service with a smile.

Kim came to our house and helped us deal with the most pressing issue for us, biting. She also showed us how to get our puppy to "settle". Kim's calm, playful approach worked well with Farrah. I'm waiting for a puppy group class, that I hope she'll have soon. ☺️💚

I needed a cat-sitter to stop by my apartment for 9 days while I was away on vacation. I went with Sitters4Paws because it was a group of people, not just an individual, so I didn't have to worry if something came up with that person. Randy came and did an initial visit before we left. We went through the whole procedure of how they would enter the apartment complex and what tasks needed to be completed. He even asked questions about things I didn't consider, like where cleaning products were located in case one of the cats had a hairball or something. Soon after the visit, he sent me links to set up my account on their website. Randy already filled out the notes section with things like where the food and cleaners were located, using the water pitcher to fill their water, etc. You are free to add any additional notes as well. You can pay the invoice directly through the site too, which I very much appreciate for convenience. They sent updates everyday, including lots of pictures. Not just pictures of the cats, but also of the food/water bowls (before and after) and their cleaned litter box so that you know they are eating and drinking. These updates are sent both to your email and added to your account on their website. It was comforting to see the pictures daily, so you know that your pets are happy and healthy while you are away. Overall, Sitter4Paws were amazing. I will definitely continue to use them in the future and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs pet-sitting services in the Phoenix area.

I hired them to watch my cat Peter. It was so easy to work with Sitter4Paws. The website is far superior to any other pet sitting company out there. They even list all of there pricing online - no gimmicks. They are so professional, not like those random pet sitters. If you want quality service and not have to worry about your sitter showing up or not. I have had a lot of terrible experiences with pet sitters, but now I have a pet sitting service that I can use that is reliable and professional so I can have piece of mind while out of town :) Thanks Sitter4Paws.

So I have to say in all my pet sitting experiences Sitter4Paws is the most professional. They are an actual business. After getting my quote and visiting the website I scheduled a consult. Randy showed right on time! His car was uber cute with the business logos. He went over my little boys routine and was really friendly and knowledgeable. One day into the service and I am so pleased. I cannot stress this is an actual professional business with all the security and reassurance you could want. Go Sitter4Paws Phoenix!!

We have 2 dogs and a cat who needed care while we were out of town for a wedding. Our cat needs two medications, twice daily once being an insulin shot and the other being an oral medication. After speaking with Rachael we chose AZ Mama Bear Pet Care because they have experience with administering those types of medications. They did a great job. The pets seemed happy and well taken care of. We even got photos sent to us while we were away. We will definitely call them again if we need a pet sitter.

AZ Mama Bear Pet Care provided an excellent professional service over the Christmas holidays when my wife and I were out of town. Our two fur babies were cared for very well and the price was very affordable. I will definitely be using them in the future for any pet sitting or care needs and recommend anyone looking for a similar service to try them out! You won't be disappointed.

The service I was provided was EXCELLENT! Mary was the first one to reply on Thumbtack and I also liked her website. We did a meet and greet and I knew immediately she was the one (so did Bullwinkle!). I was very nervous leaving Bullie this long for I have never done so; I rescued him and he has separation anxiety. Mary sent me text messages every day, along with pictures (and videos) to put my mind at ease. Let me tell ya, that made my trip more enjoyable because I was not so worried about Bullie and his separation anxiety; plus, on top of that, all the loving he was getting!! Two Dogs Dancing Pet Sitting (Mary) is now my FOREVER pet sitter. I could go on more more, but I am not going to. All I know is that you WILL NOT go wrong with hiring Mary to take care of your loved animal(s) when needed...SHE IS THE BEST IN MY BOOK! Thank you Mary!!!! Marla, Walt and, of course, Bullie!!!!

Mary was fantastic taking care of our 4 cats, in particular giving lots of love to a new kitten we had recently gotten. She was very flexible when the scheduled 2 week vacation changed into 3 weeks, and then again when we came home 2 days early. Because of the kitten we had her stopping by every other day. Mary was great in texting me each time to make sure I knew things were good with the cats. She even went extra lengths to check on one of the cats who is very, very shy. Mary hunted out the hiding places I specified and made sure Penny was actually still alive even though she wanted nothing to do with Mary. I would highly recommended using Mary for pet sitting.

After speaking to Mary, I felt confident that she would take good care of my pet bunny, Geneva. She is VERY knowledgeable about animals and animal health, she seemed gentle and made a connection with Geneva easily. She was also quickly to respond and great about sending updates. I felt safe leaving my keys with her and she went out of her way to return them promptly. I will definitely hire her again in the future!

I wanted to express my sincere thank you to Karen and her husband Steve. I was very happy with the care they gave to my dog, Wish! I got twice a day updates on her, pictures of her and location checks. I cannot express how comfortable I was with leaving Wish in their care. I was apprehensive about leaving Wish, but after communicating online and then meeting them personally, I was completely comfortable. I would definitely recommend K &S Pet Sitting, but most importantly, I will use them again! Thank you!

K&S have watched our 2 large dogs while we away, on more than one occasion.They are amazing People!!! Our puppies were cared for and played with multiple times a day. Our families standing joke is, that our puppies love Karen and Steve more than they love us! Needless to say we never have to worry when they are in the care of K&S Pet sitting!!

Leslie has helped our family for over six years, even on short notice, if she can't come personally, she will send someone reliable from the rescue to fill in. We have seen the work she does with nursing care from the injured animals and with our own pets that clearly demonstrates her devotion and love of animals. Her costs are very reasonable, but if she charged triple what she does, we'd still look to her before someone else. Leslie can groom horses, dogs and cats. She'll even take the time to dematt a cat rather than shamefully shaving a long haired cat. She is patient and non stress causing to fractious and older pets. She shows up when expected to and takes excellent care of pets. We have no complaints for improvements.

My husband and I found out late that we needed a petsitter for the Christmas weekend. Leslie found me on Thumbtack, met with me the next day and started petsitting the day after that. I came home to happy animals and a clean house. I feel very lucky to have found a petsitter like Leslie on such short notice, and my dogs and cat were lucky to have such an animal person to take care of them. Thank you!

She is very dependable, if we have to go somewhere, we can count on her to attempt to rearrange her schedule so that she can be here for us. She has always taken very good care of our pets and probably gives them more attention and affection than we do. She does the grooming whenever it is needed at very little additional cost and her prices are very reasonable!

Cherene was kind enough to take on a last minute dog sitting job for our Assisted Living community. We had a very old and incontinent bulldog that needed tending to on a daily basis. The care given to this dog was exceptional and we could really tell that the Cherene cared about and paid plenty of attention to him. When we need future care for any of our resident's pets, we will most certainly contact Cherene!

I'm a first time dog owner and really had no idea what I was doing. We found Brandy on Thumbtack site and we decided to give it a shot. Max was already 7 months old so we had no idea what she would know so the idea of obedience training sounded wonderful. Brandy definitely taught the basics as well as the other things that we wanted with our dog. Brandy also talked through issues we've had, given great advice and tips and Working with Max on them has definitely made a huge difference. Max has learnt some amazing behaviors. He can sit, come, sleep and walk loosely on a leash. Our bond with our puppy is incredible and we owe a lot to Brandy for helping me overcome my fear of dogs. I recommend her for owners with dogs of any age. Brandy came to our house and totally understood my dog's dilemmas. She taught positive training techniques that actually worked! She helped us prevent Max from resource guarding and regain order in the house.

I've used Two Dogs Dancing for overnight stays at my home with my pack of very boisterous corgis, Pom and rat terrier and one horse. We have an older corgi with a brain tumor and are not comfortable leaving him unattended for extended periods of time. This summer we scheduled a 10 day over seas vacation. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that all our pets would be well care for. We received daily updates and pictures. All our pets were properly pampered while we were gone including our horse, who doesn't understand why I don't provide the yummy carrots like Mary does. Our dogs are over joyed when they see Mary and Brandy outside of pet sitting. Our home was clean and in great condition when we returned and we were pleasantly surprised by a plate of freshly baked cookies.

Val watched our German Shepard at our home for 10 days. We could tell from the moment Val met our dog that they were going to get along great. He kept running up to her to play. He's a big guy to handle but we knew he was in safe hands and we got daily updates and photos. It was great keeping our dog in our own home because he is high maintenance. I will definitely ask Val to dog sit again when we go away and would highly recommend her. I also thought her prices were very reasonable.

My dogs are like kids to me and I am very selective on who I will allow to watch them. Valerie came highly recommended by a dear friend and she did a great job caring for my two Schnauzers.

We used Bee Professional Pet Services for the first time. We were not disappointed! The service is fairly priced, and highly personalized, she even has 25 minute dog walking for a cheeper price for Daily Visits! We took advantage of that! She is also highly trained; her skills were showing as soon as she entered our home. We have 2 Pitbull mixes and 3 cats. We've received daily check-in text messages and pictures of our pals while away and a Daily Logged Notebook and Folder that stays with us for next time. Every special request has been happily accomodated. She even showed up 10 minutes early to the interview!

Brinn has done a great job at caring for both my cats and also my son (9 years old), since 2011. She also has an extended background check which makes me feel more confident in choosing her. I have used her pet services for daily visits, extended care stays and also house sitting, (pre cats). She's very detailed and keeps notes and will text you updates. She comes prepared with a great attitude and a great sense of humor. I recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and trusted person.

Bee came into my home and sat on the floor and let my cats come to her. Bee took notes on everything on how to care for my cats, especially the litter box. Bee also noted how to care for my outside plants, walked with me to the garbage bin to get rid of the kitty waist, then walked with me to the mail box. But the most important was Bee was able to give my one cat Merri her thyroid medication with no problem at all.

Alicia is very kind, sweet and friendly. She arrived the time that was agreed upon and provided updates and pictures each time she took care of my mom’s cats. She is amazing she managed to get a picture of boots, the cat who hides all the time, and she was even able to pet him. I see him often and he does not let me near him. So I would say that Alicia is the “cat whisper” . My mom was very please with her services and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alicia as a pet sitter.
