Cathy is very prompt, friendly and a trust worthy pet sitter. She was very responsive from the beginning when I inquired about her service to the end when I asked her to return my key. She sent me pics of my cats every day she visited them. She managed our finicky security system well. The security system logs the time of entry/exit so there's proof she did spend a whole hour with my kitty at each visit. She was graciously flexible with her start date. My departure date was depending on the weather driving up to Lake Tahoe, and she was OK with me deciding on the day of departure as long as I let her know. And she really went above and beyond her duties. The week we were gone, it rained very heavily and Coyote Creek near by our house started flooding. When I heard from my neighbors that the city was notifying residents to evacuate, I called Cathy and asked her to help me with the cats, only if she were comfortable about it. She did not hesitate to go to my house to move my cats' food, water and litter box upstairs, even when the street started flooding. You can really trust her for taking good care of your pets and I recommend her without any hesitation what so ever.

Kristen was warm and welcoming when I arrived for my first lesson. For my second lesson, she made sure I did not go beyond my abilities for the day. I am looking forward to learning more from her and gaining more experience on how to properly ride a horse. Thanks Kristen. :) Fran B.

Our 10 year old daughter Ella has been riding with Kate for about 2 years. We cannot say enough about how wonderful Kate is for Ella and all of the other kids at the barn. She builds their self-confidence, their leadership skills, and has high expectations of them...all in a low pressure environment which is an usual magical combination. It goes with our saying that Kate's riding is exceptional and her dedication to all things equestrian is superlative. She trains Ella to ride her best, every ride, but somehow manages to make the hard work FUN. She pushes Ella and the kids to be their best and they are eager to please her and make her proud. And in turn, she helps them be proud of their accomplishments. Last Summer we bought a horse for Ella - we didn't know where to begin. Kate helped us every step of the way to get the absolute right match for Ella. A few months later when Ella developed some fears, Kate worked with Ella to overcome her fears and develop as a stronger rider. Kate works tirelessly, night and day, at the barn for the kids and the horses. The kids all want to hang around and watch Kate instruct the other kids because they learn so much just by watching. Sometimes Kate will bring in experts for specific clinics and this has always been a huge learning experience for the kids. Kate also organizes many fun shows so the kids can get a taste of riding competitively. And as if this is not enough, in Jan 2017, Kate gave Ella the riding goals they had written down for 2017...we were so pleased that, with Kate's guidance, Ella achieved every one of them. I can't say enough about this amazing young woman and how fortunate we feel to have her influence and presence in our daughter's life. She is an all-around, phenomenal role model for kids.

Debbie provided outstanding care for our two dogs. She was in daily contact with us, and was a caring, thoughtful house/ pet sitter. Our dogs love her, and we would use her services again!

Evie and Johnny took care of our precious daughter pup in February and I'm so glad I went with my intuition and gave their pet sitting service a try. I could tell straight away on meeting Evie that her heart was huge for animals. She also listened carefully to what Odessa's needs were and they honored them, with photo updates too! From these I saw how Dessy bonded with Johnny and she's quite fussy about men. I'm very happy we have sitters now for our furkid any time we go away.

    Andre has been our cat-sitter a few times now. We have been extremely impressed with his obvious love of cats. While cat-sitting, he always puts the welfare of the cats first. He also communicated effectively with us about the status of the cats including details of their behavior so that we could go about our vacation knowing that our cats were well cared for.

    We have been taking our 8 year old to Susie for over a year and she has a great time with her. Not only has she learned about riding also the overall care of a horse as well as helping feed the chickens and gather eggs and clean up. It has been a great eye opening experience for my daughter. She really emphasizes attention to detail in her riding and safety is a priority. Susie is great with the kids and has a keen sense of when to push and when to back off. We have become great friends with Susie and really value her friendship.

    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 had a fantastic riding lesson! Peter was patient, encouraging and confident as he taught me the basics of riding. I was really nervous but Peter gently led me through the lesson and I would definitely recommend him. As a classroom teacher I can recognize when someone is able to impart information clearly so that the learner can experience success. I highly recommend Peter Adame

    I'm offering house sitting and pet sitting and even baby sitting if needed. I have experience in all categories. I'm a full time student with a part time job but nothing that keeps me tied down. I am available for day visits or overnight visits if necessary. I'm a huge people person, super easy to get along with, great with kids and pets, I'm really hard working and energetic. I'm very responsible and trustworthy. Two characteristics I think important to have in someone watching over treasured things. I'm very flexible with times, places and pay so throw me an email and we can work things out. -Lindsay
