Joyce was very thorough and considerate. She has a good understanding of pet care and was very responsive while we were traveling. Our cat seemed happy when we returned, which isn't always the case when we've used other sitters in the past. Thanks Joyce!
Marina is the absolute best!!! We have 2 cats, one of which has diabetes. Marina came to our house twice a day for over 2 weeks while we were in Europe. She administered insulin. fed the cats, and cleaned the litter box ever time she visited. We have had many cat sitters in the past and it was obvious as soon as you meet Marina that she has such a calming presence and really understands and loves animals.
My cats enjoyed their time with the sitters and we enjoyed the ease of knowing our cats were safe.
Twink was fantastic! When our regular dog sitter wasn't available, we turned to Twink and feel so lucky we found her! We have three small dogs that are old, grouchy, and unique in their own ways. She handled them with ease, and they warmed up to her quickly. It must be noted that one of our dogs is blind and needs special attention so the fact that she was able to take such great care of all three of them is impressive. Thank you Twink!
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!
Shelley is a great pet sitter! After posting my inquiry on thumbtack, we met for the initial consult with 2 days. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very responsive and during the sitting hours she always sent photos of my kitties. One of my cats requires medication, which was not a problem for Shelley. Knowing my pets were in the hands of someone who cares about them just as much as myself was a huge relief. I will be asking her to sit my cats whenever I travel now. The quote was a great value! I highly suggest working with Shelley.
The best pet-sitter ever! The ultimate professional, Cathy checks in ahead of time to confirm, takes excellent care of my pups and leaves without a trace. Best part is that I get pictures and videos of my dogs playing and relaxing, looking very happy. Will have her back again for sure!
Christina was amazing cat sitter for us. She checked in on Merlin once every couple of days while we were out on a week long vacation. She not only followed every instruction we left her, but also went out of her way to bond with our cat and keep him company (and trust me our cat is not the easiest to bond with). She knowledgeable and confident around pets. I will definitely be checking if she is available next time we need a pet sitter.
I noticed Paul taking a group of dogs on an outing. It turned out that he provides service for my neighbors dogs. I just loved his attitude with the dogs and his loving nature I was planning a trip and needed a cat sitter for my 13yo very pampered Ragdoll cat. I crossed my fingers and asked Paul if he cat sat and turned out Paul said he does, in fact his very own pet is a cat. It was love at first sight for my cat. Since then Paul has cat sat for "Mr. Z." as he lovingly calls him several times for a week-10 days at a time. My big kitty is very well taken for when I take vacation and my anxiety is minimal. When I return home from a trip my kitty is happy and not tense or doesn't seem to miss me. Paul brushes my longhair cat. He feeds him and does the liter box and my home is neat and clean. I would definitely recommend Perfect Pooch and Paul Koval. His price is right and he is the ideal petsitter. If you need further information you can contact me. Felice Price.
Pam has been fantastic so far -- providing regular updates on our pup's day including pictures as well. Very concerned with his well-being, which is a key factor in choosing a dog sitter. Her creativity in reaching an ideal solution for our needs was a huge reason behind us choosing her, and we don't regret it for a minute.
My first encounter w/ Mike was in late 2015 when vetting pet-sitters to care for my elderly cat over the holidays. He was incredibly professional and it was a tough decision between he and one other candidate. Ultimately at that time I hired the other sitter. BIG MISTAKE. She went through my things and stole some items on the second time I hired her. After that incident I went directly to Mike due to the positive interactions I had w/ him the first time we communicated. He was thrilled to have the opportunity to take care of my Jasmine, so I hired to care for her while I was away for a short business trip. Mike was very professional, came over for a meet & greet, asked all the right questions, and ultimately took fantastic care of my girl. He definitely has a repeat customer in me, so I highly recommend him to anyone else looking for quality pet care.
I started taking lessons at St. Francis Riding Club a few weeks ago and have nothing but positive things to say: the horses are well trained and treated well, the instruction is impeccable, and Oni is awesome. I look forward to going every week.
Great dog sitter highly recommend
Best sitter ever!
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.
Erika takes excellent care of my cats. She always sends pictures or videos and status updates when she is watching them. They seem happier and calmer when I get home than they have when I used other cat sitters. She follows care instructions well, is very easy to schedule with and her rates are competitive. She's clearly an animal lover!
This was our first time using Precious Fur (or any pet sitting service) to watch our 2 kitties, and we were amazed beyond our expectations for how wonderful they were with them. We were out of town for just over a week, and towards the end of our vacation, one of our kitties had an unexpected medical emergency. Jessica noticed right away that he wasn't feeling very well and was able to get him into the pet hospital that same evening to be treated. She dispensed his pain killers and made sure he was hydrating, eating, and was comfortable for the last few days we were away. We came home to kitties who were extremely happy, even after the medical emergency and disruption in their usual routine. We will definitely be using Precious Fur again and would recommend Jessica and Craig to anyone looking for a pet sitter. The care and love they showed our babies was beyond what we were expecting. They treated them like their own little family, and it makes the anxiety of leaving them when we are out of town a bit easier.
I hightly recommend Tina to anyone looking for a loyal, caring, flexible and consistent dog sitter/walker/caregiver. Tina was my lifeline when it came to helping with my girls. Whether it was daily visits while I was at the office or extended home stays while I was traveling, I could always count on Tina! We were very sad to say goodbye when it was time to move back to Chicago.
I highly recommend Home Medi-Cat to anyone who has a cat needing some care! Diana has been our cat sitter for several years now, and I cannot say enough good things about her! (But... I will try!!) (1) Diana has a lot of experience with cats, including formal vet tech training. This is a must in a cat sitter, because cats try to hide when they are sick and only show subtle signs that anything is wrong. So, it takes someone who is familiar with cat behaviors to know that my cats are really ok and healthy. When Diana comes over, it's almost like a mini vet visit! She was the first person to notice one of my cats had a lump -- I didn't feel it, but Diana did -- and because of her, I got my cat into the vet's office right away! She observes even the littlest behaviors and gives tons of really helpful counsel on medical issues as well as advice on behavioral/situational issues. (2) Diana is a Cat Whisperer. Even my shiest scaredy cat loved Diana right from the start, and she purrs just because Diana is in the room! My cats allow Diana to give them medications and check them over, with minimal problems. (3) Diana is extremely trustworthy, reliable and passionate about animals! I can depend on Diana to come when she says she will come, and a few times she has even gotten us an extra box of litter when I was running out and didn't have time to get to the store. She is very passionate about cats well-being, care, happiness -- but also, I get seasonal wild ducklings at my house, and she helps me take care of them too!!! Diana is also a really great person in general - kind, ethical, smart and strong. I know that whenever I leave my cats in Diana's care, she will really care for them -- perhaps even better than I can! All the best, Toni Mirabelli 650-740-8333
Nancy does a totally professional job of cat sitting . Ms Mouser (a true diva) seems to look forward to my departures and the arrival of Nancy--a Great cat sitter!!
My dogs LOVE Vanessa and that is the most important thing! She gives them lots of personal attention and I know they are in good hands when she is with them. Vanessa is always professional and punctual and her rates are very reasonable. Excellent pet sitter!
