Nic was a wonderful cat sitter for our two cats! She is very knowledgable about the animals and has a connection with cats, as you will be able to tell when you meet her. She played with the cats and sent pictures and messages so we were updated on their condition. I would highly recommend her to you. We will definitely be calling her again!
My dog, Lincoln was safe and well cared for by Erika while I was away. This was my first time using a dog sitter. Erika kept me updated and sent pictures of all the fun Lincoln was having!
Just Four Paws watched my 7 year old cat for a few days when we went out of town. They did a great job! They came consistently at the same time everyday. Took pictures and wrote progress reports. We were very happy with them, and felt very comfortable with them caring for our cat while we were away. Lori was our cat sitters name, she went above and beyond.
Kim and Lori were fantastic. Lori came out with Kim (the one who would be staying overnight) to meet my dogs. I was very impressed when they brought toys for them. Kim was great with my dogs as well as taking care of my house. I received daily texts and pictures of the dogs which relieved any anxiety I had about leaving the dogs. My vet is in Orange County but Lori recommended a vet close by which reassured me that if there happened to be an emergency everything would be handled. I also appreciate the fact that they are licensed and bonded, just another reassurance. I am very happy with the services Coco and Boo provided for my fur babies. Kim treated my dogs like they were her own. I could tell how much they liked her when she returned the house key once I got home. I will be using them again when I go out of town.
If you and your pets are lucky enough to get Megan Grinpas as your pet sitter you will thank me. My dog Griffin is more happy to see Meg than me! She is so professional, kind, full of love and joy. I never worried about Griffin when I was gone. I knew he was happy. She sent me a picture and an update every day. We really miss her, but I know she will find grateful owners like me. You will never worry about your pets. She is amazing.
My dog came home happy and she her hair was groomed even. She did a great job, when Lexi came with her hair full of matts.
No one could ask for a better person to watch their home and dog while on vacation. Juliet is just awesome. Our dog was very comfortable with her and had a wonderful time while we were gone. We had used different house/dog sitters the previous two years and Juliet was a vast improvement over both of them. We came home to a happy dog plus a house that actually had a few decorating improvements added to it. Juliet will now be our house/dog sitter every time we travel. A perfect 10!!!
Allison was very patient with our dog and made sure he improved his fear and anxiety so he could train with the other dogs. Great dog home away from home.
Heather did a great job taking care of my two dogs and home. I really appreciate that we could communicate with texting to keep me informed. I need her again!
Leaving my dog behind is not easy for me, but Jennifer stepped in during a recent trip. My dog was cared for in my home and upon return, my dog was happy and stress-free. I recommend her services.
Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!
I am a single senior lady adopting a puppy for the first time ever in my life. I was overwhelmed. Bee took everything in hand and relieved my stress. I was lost and she was there for me. Very grateful!
Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.
“ Amy has been dog sitting and housesitting for us almost two years, and she does a wonderful job. Our dog Bristol, 15 years old, requires special care. He is a mixed breed with a very shaggy coat that needs a lot of brushing, and he can’t see or hear very well. Amy gives him the special attention and slow walks he needs. Our other dog, Lola, is a Boston Terrier, full of energy but with dietary restrictions. She loves to play tug of war with Amy. Both of them are always very happy to see Amy. The texts and photos of our dogs while we are away help us keep in touch. And when we return from our trips, the house seems cleaner than when we left! No one will be disappointed with Amy’s professional services. — Cheryl N
I’m so glad I have found Trina to be my pet sitter. She is very reliable, trustworthy, and professional. I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week so Trina comes to my house to take my little chihuahua potty, feed her, and keep her company. I know my little fur baby is in good hands while I am away and best of all, I know that I can trust Trina in my home. Not to mention her rates are amazing, especially when I leave on vacation! I always book her to spend the night at my house to pet sit and house sit! So awesome! I would recommend Trina to anyone. You won’t be disappointed!
Gloria has been so helpful and gone above and beyond in taking care of our dog Bella. We couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter, and Bella is always happy to have staycations at Gloria's house.
I have known Valerie at Best Friends Pet and House Sitting Service in Fallbrook since 2005. I trust her implicitly with my pets and home. She does a wonderful job with my pets. She puts the pets welfare as a number one priority always. I can travel away from home and know everything is in good hands. I highly recommend Valerie. She is extremely reliable and conscientious..
Courtney is a wonderful and reliable pet sitter! She has taken care of my dog, Zoe, and my guinea pig, rabbits and hamster when I've been away. She is professional and very loving. She has a dog named Noodle that she brings with her that my dog adores. I trust Courtney in my home and with all my animals. My dog is a needy dog and Courtney meets her needs so well that when I return my dog is happy and calm. The only bad part is that Zoe misses her when she leaves!! Courtney is the best!

I have been petsitting for a little over 3 years now and currently foster my own American Bulldog/ Pitbull mix. I have an experience with dogs over 5 years. Overall, I hope to make pet care not only affordable but convenient for you and your furry friend.

I walk dogs and sit them whenever my close friend goes out of town, and she goes out of town a lot. She has a pit bull, so I am pretty good with all dogs. I don't own any.

I am a 20-year-old student, and I'm a dog lover! I walk dogs whose owners just can't find the time to do it but still care for the benefits a good walk entails. I also pet sit. Are you going on vacation or a business trip? There's no need to worry, your fuzzy face friends will be safe with me!
