Tiffany did a great job taking care of my cat Rufio. She sent videos and photos of him during her visits and took in all of our mail/packages. Tiffany clearly loves animals and her knowledge of animals put us as it ease with her in charge. I would not hesitate in hiring her for future cat sitting needs.
We had been paying general contractors pricing for jobs around the house that we knew we could get lower competitive bids for. Karla sent Miguel out to access our project needs. In having Miguel review our project list, we found out that they are very reasonable and guaranteed the work. They made our project easily manageable; within our budget and busy schedule (even Saturdays if necessary). While we occupied our home, Miguel painted the interior and exterior of our house. Miguel's crew paid attention to dust controls within the house, working around two large dogs in the house and yards and privacy issues with family members. The crews attention to detail was impressive, Miguel quickly resolved any issue that came up. Miguel has many talents other than painting, and was given other projects around our property. We will use this company again.
Erika is an EXCELLENT pet sitter!! She is extremely responsive, responsible, thoughtful and caring. Erika impressed us immediately at our first meeting- she was thorough in learning about what our cats' wants and needs, personalities and proclivities. For each visit, Erika sends us short videos of our cats; which gives us peace of mind. She is very quick to respond to our requests, even if its short notice. Erika even arranged for a reliable, vetted sub when she was out of town, and we needed cat sitting. We feel very fortunate to have found Erika to take care of our beloved kitties. We highly recommend her!!!
I have used Ryan for pet sitting and dog walking for almost 3 years. I trust him with my most valuable assets!! The dogs love him and he is extremely reliable. I am a huge fan!!
Krystal took excellent care of our cats while we were away. She is professional, experienced, and really loves animals. She took time to send an update every day and send a picture (if the cats came out of hiding)! I highly recommend Krystal for cat-sitting.
Peggy did a cat sit while we were out of town. She made sure to clarify all instructions ahead of time, made good notes while we were here, and provided good followup. We would recommend Peggy!
Yolanda genuinely cares! She is attentive, on time, caring, thoughtful, and she will take great care of your dog! She sends thoughtful notes and wonderful pictures of your dog on her walks while you're at work. Give her a call if you're looking for someone caring for your pet, you're lucky to have found her! She's a winner! and your doggie will love her.
My house and pets are in good shape and happy when we come home from vacation. Chelsea has pet sat for us for over 6 years... wouldn't use anyone else.
We got so lucky finding Jody! Jody did an amazing job taking care of our kitty and house for 5 days while we were out of state. She checked in daily per request, and sent me photos of my cat throughout our absence. I did not have to worry about my cat being lonely or getting anxious because Jody slept over and kept my cat at ease by sticking to our usual schedule and giving him lots of love. When we came home our cat was not frazzled or anxious, which was our previous experience when we'd leave for long periods of time. We joke that our cat misses Jody and look forward to hiring her again when we plan our next trip!
I've used Gail for pet sitting for my 2 cats several times. She is very sweet and my kitties love her! She is very caring and professional - I highly recommend her!
Liz was great. Took care of our 3 dogs and 2 cats and house sat for a week. No problems at all. She even texted photos of our pets during the week to assure us they were being well cared for. A+
Great dog sitting service!
Amy was a spectacular house sitter! She was responsible, covering all the bases before, during, and after the house sit such that everything was in order to the last detail. While we were away, she sent emails with photos of our kitty to check in each day. If she had questions she asked them clearly and directly so we could solve any issue quickly. When we returned home, our plants were happy, our kitty safe and sound, and our house clean and smelling good! All and all it was such a pleasant experience to have Amy as our house sitter. It defiantly pays to have a mindful person in this important role of caring for our beloved home.
Always on time dependable and nice personality. Was able to give my Boo his medication easily. I have used S. many many times and have found her to be very professional and her prices extremely reasonable. I highly recommend her.
Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!
We are so lucky to have found Vanessa, she is absolutely wonderful and so great with all our animals (Guinea pigs, tortoise, chickens and three labradors) she also waters all my plants out back and is just very caring and qualified. I feel so happy to know she is staying at our home while we have to travel to love and care for all our animals.
Shanna answered our prayers for an honest and trustworthy pet sitter who knew animal behavior as well as how to be a respectful house-sitter. She is also reliable, available/flexible, and communicative. We have a dog with some socialization issues and Shanna listened to our explanation of his behavior and our approach to managing him. We tried several sitters before Shanna and were unfortunately not confident in their instincts or level of responsibility with our pup. It was such a relief to finally find that person in Shanna. You won't regret hiring her.
I always felt at ease knowing that Anne was caring for my lil Stella! She has a very special bond with the pets she looks after and always gave Stella lots of love. Stella considered it her home away from home and was always excited to go to Anne's house! When I went on vacation I got regular updates and knew she was in good hands. I also felt so much better knowing Stella was being looked after and having other playmates around as opposed to leaving her alone at home for 9plus hours while I was at work. I highly recommend Anne's services!
I recently had to go out of town and my regular pet sitter decided to double her rates two days before. So I went searching for a new pet sitter and I found ElizaPets on Nextdoor and I am so very glad I did. My sweet cat became very sick the very first day I left. Elizabeth went above and beyond taking Beimer to her regular vet and then on to Sage (where if you've been there you know you wait for hours to be seen) where we found that Beimer has kidney cancer. Elizabeth help guide me though the whole process long distance with the vets, their diagnosis and treatment options. She then spent time with Beimer, sitting with her in the sun (Beimer loves sitting in the sun), and never once complained nor asked for addition payment. The first pet sitter only spent 10 minutes of her time when she came to care for Beimer. I'm grateful I found and hired Elizabeth. I highly recommend ElizaPets! Thank you Elizabeth!
I have over23 years experience!i and am someone you can count on!
I would love to make sure everything is under control at your home when you are gone. You will be able to enjoy your time away knowing your house and pets are in great hands.
