Im so happy to have found Tiffany! She is responsive, caring and trustworthy! She sends us pictures of our cat Mia every day she comes to see her and tells us Her mood, eating habits and if there is anything that calls her attention. I highly recommend Tiffany for anyone that is looking for a pet sitter!
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.
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.
Tony & Cameron groomed our 2yr Female English Cream Golden Retriever, and our Male 7 yr. 105lb American Rottweiler and I couldn't believe how awesome they were with them. Especially our rotti! The way they handle our dogs I was sold! Our rotti has never got any grooming done in his life and here comes Cameron & Tony who stole his heart. They listen, read and are very detailed in the body language of the dogs. They were very social and playful to where our English golden retriever is a very submissive dog and she started warming up to them. This is a TOTALLY different kind of mobile service which I was very pleased with. They really made in home mobile experience very comfortable, inviting, loving & caring for our dogs. Tony is very knowledgeable on pets! Any kind of pet you have. I learned a lot and had a very wonderful expeience! Thank you and if I must say get some rain boots for Cameron! Thank you Cameron!
I highly recommend Erika as a pet sitter. Erika is flexible, professional, and friendly. Our cat, Bubby, loves her. Erika always sends us videos of Bubby while we're away so we get to see that Bubby is happy and healthy in our absence!
I was extremely satisfied with the care my dog received in our absence. Ryan kept me infotmed via text of his visits and how our Layla was doing. I would drfinitely recommend his services. I have never felt comfortable having a pet sitter in my home snd this was a first time. So happy cannot imagine kenneling her when Ryan is availabe and competent.
Peggy (and Loving Paws) is a compassionate, caring animal professional. She has helped my pit bull mix, Barney, to be more calm and well behaved just by walking him. The services she offers are everything you could possibly want from a pet sitter and specialist. She is always on time. I am looking forward to continue using her services as she is honest and dependable.
We highly recommend Paw Pals. We recently moved to this area and finding a new pet sitter was a priority. During our initial meeting, Helen met our cat and listened to our routine regarding the care of our pet. She took the necessary time to discuss any questions we had and bond a little with our cat. We were very impressed with her professional and friendly manner. The first time we traveled out of town, Helen emailed me several times and even sent a few pictures and that greatly relieved any stress I had. We felt confident that all was well at home and I could relax and enjoy the vacation! We have used Paw Pals several times and are so pleased with the quality service Helen provides!
Great, professional pet sitters. Wiggling Tails met with us ahead of time to go through their procedures and tour our house. Sent us regular updates while we were out of town, with pictures of our cat. Will hire again!
Pam is an excellent pet sitter. She was quick to respond to my request, offers a fair price and seems to really love animals. I would definitely recommend her services!
Christina was great with our two kittens and sent adorable photos of them to us after each visit. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Lori is amazing and did a perfect job of taking care of my grandmother's house and pets! I recommend her to anyone that needs her services!
Trustworthy and reliable, everything you want in a pet sitter. Renata has managed my complicated household of dogs and cats on many occasions with no issues whatsoever. Highly recommend!!
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!
Pam took excellent care of our 3 dogs: she walked, fed, brushed them and administered eye drops to one of them. She also demonstrated initiative in the house and kept in touch with me the whole time. I highly recommend her as a dog sitter and will definitely use her services again in the future. She is a trustworthy person, her prices are reasonable and I am glad I found her on Thumbtack!
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
Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto
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.
Adam was amazing with our dog Ella, both when he house sat for us and when he walks her from time to time. When Adam comes to the door Ella immediately is over the moon excited and knows exactly where to go and sit after she is done saying hello.... yes you got it, next to his car so she can go for a ride and a hike. Adam also surprised me when I got home by having the sheets from the bed he slept in while he was house sitting all washed, folded and sitting on the end of the bed. What a delight not to need to clean up after a house sitter. I give Adam "4 Paws Up"
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!
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.
