About Your Critter Companions

hired 16 times on Thumbtack

Are you going out of town? Stuck late at the office? Do you have a last-minute emergency?

We are a small family of professional sitters who are situated in your local neighborhood. For all of our in-home services, we come to your pet, which saves you time and gas money! Most of us are female, since we've found that many pets seem to prefer this (yes, we also have male staff, for working with larger pets and non-pet activities).

Whether you are going on a vacation, business trip, have a full-energy pup in need of a dog walk, or just spending long hours at the office, our pet care service is for you.

We offer a free initial in-home consultation to meet each other and assess your needs. We guarantee your complete satisfaction.

Each service we offer ensures that your pets have the complete attention and one-on-one supervision from the sitter at all times. Unlike traditional kennels, common area, multifamily boarding, and day care facilities, all of which have high pet-to-staff ratios: often 1 staff member for every 20, 30 or more pets.

All our services are customized for each family and pet, ensuring that your pets are not exposed to the unpredictable behaviors and illnesses of other pets.

Our services include:

* Private dog walks with an assigned dog walker
* Daily visits from a trained pet sitter
* Overnight pet sitting
* Dog park adventures
* Poop scoop and litter box services
* Private boarding
* Pet taxi
* Doggie daycare
* Special-needs services including fluids, injections, and medications

We are:

* Insured, licensed and bonded
* Available 365 days a year, and 24 hours a day
* Proud members of Pet Sitters International
* Locally owned and operated

References are available.

VISA and MasterCard are accepted!

We offer unbeatable rates for multiple pets, and be sure to ask us about weekly and monthly discounts.

We service many cities like Campbell, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Saratoga, San Jose (north and central), Milpitas, Mountain View, Fremont, Newark, Union City, Hayward, San Lorenzo, and San Leandro. If you don't see your city listed, give us a call and we'll try to assist!

    I can't say enough positive things about Keith and the pack at YCC! I needed last-minute pet care for my dog after an unexpected surgery. Keith and the pack stepped right in, and provided service that was above and beyond my expectations. I have YCC on speed-dial for any future pet service!

    Shana was great! Texted every day to let us know how walks went. She had to deal with construction going on at the house and we were very grateful to have her taking the dogs out each day.

    Our sitter took to our needs as we imagined. She made a daily report and sent us emails while we were gone which gave us reassurance that all was well

    Our pet sitter, Michael, was so great! He texted me pictures of my kitty and details of his visits with her. I'm extremely pleased with this service and will use them again next time we go out-of-town. I highly recommend Yourcritter Companions!

    They walk my Maddy on Thursday because I get home home. They have been amazing. They always check to sure Maddy has enough water and if her pee pads needs to replaced. It is really nice that they send me an email after each walk to let me know how things went

  • 5/5 stars

    I initially used this company for a last-minute service over Thanksgiving (the other sitter I had lined up canceled last-minute). I was totally thrilled with the quick response as well as the quality of service Kelly provided. So happy that I used them again for Xmas! I would recommend these sitters any day -- they deliver above and beyond expectations!

    I am very pleased with my experience with Your Critter Companions. My dog, Charlie, has really taken to Michael and Shana, who walk him. I highly recommend Your Critter Companions!

    I have tried other pet service companies in the past, & never had good experiences. A coworker suggested Fetch to me since they had used them and were always happy with the care provide. I was able to schedule a free meeting with the pet sitter, who was professional but also very caring, it was clear she loved taking. of pets and enjoyed working with the owners more as family than just a client. She did an excellent job of providing updates while we were gone, & went beyond our expectations in performing her tasks. She even sent us a couple of photos of our pets doing silly things! We are happy that we tried Fetch, & have used them several times now all with the same outstanding result!

    We've been using Fetch! of South Bay for a number of years now, after being referred to them by our vet. We have absolutely been thrilled with the love and care the staff provide to our pets -- and even though we have moved, the quality of care and particularly the attention to detail is really wonderful! They have even been excellent at several last-minute trips we've had to take. And now that one of our kitties needs insulin injections, its so great to have someone we trust who can come to our home and administer this so that "Molly" doesn't have to get stressed out by a trip to the vet! We highly recommend Fetch! Pet Care to anyone with pets!

  • 5/5 stars

    We have been so happy with the sitters at Fetch, ever since we called at the last minute (a friend backed out) for overnight sitting on a lengthy vacation. Each time we use Fetch we know our pets will be lovingly cared for -- the sitters email updates and the occasional funny photo, so we know how things are going. We have been so happy that we have told our family and friends about Fetch -- and everyone we`ve told that has used Fetch has the same wonderful experience! We can`t say enough positive things, so do your pets a favor and call Fetch next time they need pet care services!

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. We belong to a number of professional societies and groups that focus on continuing education and training.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. All our pricing is customized to the individual needs of the owner and pet. We do offer discounts for recurring types of services as well as for long-term service needs.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. We have over 40 years of combined service in the pet care industry. Some of us have worked as vet techs and pet sitters for other companies, until we decided to create our own company.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Dog walking and daily pet visits are our most common services. Coming in second are overnight sitting, followed by medication assistance.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. We are proud of all the work we do -- we view this as a way to give back to the community at large, so that pet owners have a trusted source for pet care.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Be sure you meet the person who will be performing the services before the service is scheduled. With our group, this is a must since it ensures a good fit for both the family, pet and sitter. We use the meeting to discuss specifics of the routine and care needed, as well as allowing your pets and our sitter to meet each other.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. A professional pet sitter makes it look "easy" to care for someone else's pets, but underneath that perception is an extensive background of training, education and community service. We have found that while anyone can be a pet owner, it takes a special type of person to care for pets -- similar to human care, professional pet sitters need to be diligent, observant, caring, honest and reliable.
