Pete was very patient with my dog Parker who is a rescue. He came up with several ideas to help with a barking issue, and offered fiurther suggestions if we are not successful with our first try at this behavior. I would highly recommend Pete. Very easy to talk to.
Tiffany is a great cat sitter -- she truly cares about our animal and sends us updates with pictures, which are much appreciated!
Shelley took amazing care of dog, Roxy, for 3 days. She took her on long walks, checked in regularly and was an overall pleasure! Thank you very much, Shelley!
Marina is awesome! Super nice and easy going. She took care of our dog Marco for 5 nights while we were traveling. She would ask questions when they came up and did a great job sending us pics of his walks :)
I absolutely love Dog Tales! Not only were they able to accommodate me on short notice they worked within my schedule. As the owner of 3 dogs that vary in age it is challenging to find someone that can meet all my needs. Dog Tales exceeded my expectations. The owners are awesome and my dogs came back from their walk happy and exhausted. I had originally planned to just use them occasionally but I am now going to use them every week. If you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy company that will treat your pets like their own then Dog Tales is the company for you. I am so happy I found them!
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!
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.
Crystal is the best! She is dependable. My dog loves her and Crystal understand animals. As an owner, I found Crystal to be flexible and communicates well, which is important when planning and changing drop off/pick up times. She is conveniently located near the airport too. We've used her for mid-day walks and over-night stays. Our neighbors started using Crystal's walking service after running into Crystal and our dog. The neighbors claim their dog is happier to see Crystal then he is to see them! You know dogs and cats don't hide their emotions! Thanks Crystal for your great service and smile. You ARE a gem!
Being away from home with work or travel and knowing that my animals are well cared for is an invaluable service. I am grateful to have Pam looking after my cats and dog. Her love and dedication to animals is apparent in her work. When I told her about a litter of feral kittens living in my back yard she lent me a trap and offered her assistance in trapping, handling them, and adopting them out.
As a dancer, I have found massage to be integral to my health. Now that I am pregnant, I am much more careful about receiving any bodywork. From the relaxing atmosphere to the multifaceted approach to healing the body, my experience with Sharon was superior to most in northern California. Diligent and creative, Sharon went over time in our session to make certain she had released all the tension in my body.
Chelsea is an excellent person for animal care. She has a deep love for many different kinds of animals and it shows in her work. She has helped take care of my cats (one of which requires medication multiple times a day) and she was absolutely on top of it with their feeding/medication schedules. She is a very detail oriented person and it shows in her work. Her own pets are meticulously cared for, and she brings this kind of focus to all of her work with animals. She is a top notch petsitter with good judgement (especially important for my cat with health issues- should he need medical attention or some extra TLC) and a sincere love for animals. I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with their animals.
Walkie Doggies is a great business to work with. Renata is very skilled with dogs (and other animals!) and brings a wealth of experience to her work. She is prompt, very easy-going, and goes the extra mile for your beloved pet. Her prices are very fair and I will keep using her well into the future!
Hands down MaryCatherine is the best caretaker of my dog I've ever had. She is an animal lover first, a nurturer by nature, a professional by experience, clean and organized by design, reliable and communicative for peace of mind and energetic for my big boxer. My male boxer is quite spoiled and requires extra attention by taking vitamins, eating a hardboiled egg with his food in the AM, drinking cold water from the refrigerator and going for long walks; MaryCatherine was very understanding and enthusastic about it. She related to the caring for my very best companion. Not to mention, her experience with large dogs. While I was away from my dog, MaryCatherine would send videos of my dog when she would visit and I was at peace knowing he was under her care. She took him on long hour walks; more than the typical 30 minutes. I was impressed with her cleanliness and respect for my space. She cleaned his bowls and the dishes she used to cut the eggs in AM with. It's her attention to the details that resonates with me. I will certainly call on MaryCatherine each time I go out-of-town or need a caretaker of my dog. I will tell my friends and neighbors about her as well. She is the best ever, thank you so much!
Elizabeth is awesome! She has a natural way with animals. My dogs love her and she is very attentive and caring. It is comforting to know that I have someone trustworthy caring for my home and pets while I'm away.
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
Pam took very good care of all of my animals. She was able to take care of the dogs, cat and bird. She kept me well informed and we were happy with her service.
We are so lucky to have found Vanessa, she is absolutely wonderful and so great with all our animals (Guinea pigs, tortoise, chickens and three labradors) she also waters all my plants out back and is just very caring and qualified. I feel so happy to know she is staying at our home while we have to travel to love and care for all our animals.
Not only is Simona incredibly responsible and wasy to work with, but she is amazing with the pups! She has an intuitive way of interacting with animals and takes as good of care as your pets as she does her own. Could not recommend more highly!!
Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.
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.
