Pete has been helping us with our very energetic and curious black lab for about the past ten months. He has come to our house for trainings and we have been able to join him and our pup on training walks. Pete helps train our pup and also takes him on dog walks 3x a week. Pete's walks are no ordinary walk in the park! Our pup could be on an outing up in the trails or could have spent the afternoon swimming!! Our pup loves Pete and is always excited to head off on an adventure with him. We have also been able to board our pup with Pete which was a great experience as we knew our pup would be loved and cared for exceptionally well. We are fortunate to have found a skilled and caring dog trainer!

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!

Twink is the ULTIMATE dog walker/care giver/ friend of the animals! Our dog Chloe is obsessed with her, and wags her tail in delight whenever Twink comes to walk her. She is caring, considerate (Chloe has some significant attitude and smells EVERYTHING), and very professional. We are lucky to have her to work with, and she helps us keep our dog perfectly cared for, happy, and contented. She customizes Chloe's walks to her health needs, our neighborhood, and our mood that week - and we are more than comfortable having her in our home and caring for the most important little member of our family. We HIGHLY recommend her pet care!

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!

We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.

Paul provided excellent care for my cat. We left feeling confident he was in good hands and returned pleased to discover we had made the right choice for our pet. While our cat was pleased to have us home, it was very clear that he had been given a great deal of care in our absence. I have no doubt that we will hire Paul again for cat-sitting in the near future.

Dog Tales is the best doggie day care in the Bay! Their services are great especially because they provide a one-on-one experience with your pet. I recently took a mini vacation and had no one to take care of my two dogs (Chocolate Lab & German Short-haired Pointer). They medium sized dogs and love to go on walks at the park and beach. Dog Tales offers overnight stays at incredible prices!! They also offer complimentary grooming (baths), so when I picked them up they smelled really good! :) The staff is very friendly and are available at all times in case you want to check how your pets are doing. I recommend Dog Tales to anyone looking for a warm and friendly environment where your dogs can be taken care of either for a few hours or a couple of days! :) Will for sure be using their services in the near future!

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 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.

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.

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!

The team at Small Paws Big Love was so accommodating and so understanding when we introduced them to our rather nervous mini dachshunds. They took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions to make sure everyone felt good about moving forward, and now our dogs love them! They are so responsive and also take care of the details when they see that something needs to be taken care of at home (ex: they notice when we forget to leave the radio on for the pups, and they'll turn it on). Love working with them and would highly recommend them!
