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!
I am not a pet owner however, Tiffany was willing to check on my house while I was away for a month. My plants received tender loving care in my absence. Her regular checks on my property gave me peace of mind. She communicated regularly and adjusted her schedule during a heat wave when my plants needed extra attention. If I were a pet owner I would feel very confident with the knowledge that Tiffany was in charge of my pet's care. For those without pets, call on Tiffany. She will definitely go the extra mile to be sure that your home will be watched over from all perspectives.
We love Tammy ! We have a 2-year old Aussie with pretty serious issues regarding: charging at the door barking (scaring guests), barking at random noises, biting (yikes! but yes.. many times to even friends and family), and leash aggression. We had 2 trainers before. One was at the prestigious Cali-K9 which was like training your dog to almost be like a police dog with a lot of consequences including pulling very hard on the chain where they want his two front feet to literally be lifted ( we didn't want to do this at all .. but we trusted them because of their amazing reviews )..this caused our anxious pup to become a very anxious dog, esp. to strangers... we then went with another trainer from Pet Food Express who was purely positive reinforcement. Here, she had him locked away in the room for months without social interaction in order to try to desensitize him and slowly introduce him back to people and triggers. THIS DID NOT WORK. If anything, his habits got worse and we forgot what it was like to even have a dog anymore :( We reached a very sad point, full of tears, where we discussed the fact that we might have to give him away but we decided maybe board & train was the next step. There are articles out there saying this method is not suggested because it might not be long lasting, or maybe the dog might just listen to the trainer and not you. Anyways, we came across Tammy and at first was very hesitant. As a millennial couple both working in high-tech.. we were killing ourselves over online research. Thumbtack wasn't a service I ever used before so I trusted other sites like Yelp & Facebook which Tammy didn't have too much of a presence on :( We did a bunch of research and even paid $100 for a consultation with Lori Hamilton - but it didn't feel right.. but she was still on our radar as another top option. When we met Tammy, she seemed incredibly sweet, genuine, & honest. As she is going full-time as a dog trainer, I knew she was going to treat our dog Finn as an individual and not just a number or revenue. She truly cared about his life and happiness. Eventually we made the decision to go with Tammy, reason being is because we know not everyone is as tech-savvy and we went with social media all-stars like Cali-K9 before which didn't go well.. so we couldn't judge a trainer just based on online presence. When we got Finn back from Board & Train you could tell how much he adored her. It was crazy! When she walked away he locked his eyes and body towards her. When she comes for our trainings now, our dog throws his body on her and rubs himself missing her. This is how I know she spent a lot of time with him instead of just shipping him off, and crossing our fingers that Finn was getting the training attention he needs. Forward 2 months, Finn is not perfect but he is x10 more manageable and we know what to do if he reacts in any way. He now goes to work with my boyfriend as an office pup, we aren't scared to take him downtown, he rarely barks at the Amazon dude (this could be fixed very fast before it happens). My boyfriend and I are so happy we went with Tammy now! She is the most patient person ever and I am so excited to have her integrated in our lives. She has helped us find so much different solutions regardless if its testing individual techniques or even supplements to help with Finn's anxiety. The greatest gift she gave us is the confidence that we are a great dog owner and that we also have the greatest dog! Put time and effort in your dog & Tammy will always do the same! We are continuing to board with Tammy when we go on vacations, so our relationship will definitely continue for a long time <3 (:
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!
Marina did a wonderful caring for my client's hospice dog. I highly recommend her for pet care. Ruth Dunning, DVM
Twink is absolutely amazing!! As with many other pet owners, I was very hesitant to let a stranger into my house when Im not home and even more to take my pup on a walk and be responsible for his well-being. But all my hesitations were put at ease after just one visit from Twink! From the first time my dog and I met Twink, we knew she was completely trust-worthy and reliable. She is great with both my older retriever mix (who goes on walks) as well as my young and very bold kitty (that she hangs out with after and before the walk). You can definitely tell she has extensive experience with animals and really understands them on an individual level. She is very professional, always on-time and even sends me pictures and updates of my dog while they are on their walk. Sampson (the pup) loves his individual walks and the hour long walk provide him with a great mid-day work out. With my work schedule, meetings and other things will occasionally pop up and with very short notice Twink has always been available to help me out! I highly recommend her and after about 10 visits have nothing but glowing, five star reviews!
Maria did a great job at my apartment. My apartment was extremely messy and she did not leave until the job was finished to perfection. She also cares about which cleaning products she uses and how they impact the environment and pets which is a plus.
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!
Shelley did a great job caring for my pet over the holidays. She was responsive during our conversations. I came home to a happy cat. Thanks!
Susan is an expert. She very observant, respectful and sensitive . You can tell she loves her work and your pets. I have two very senior dogs who can be aggressive with an overly active puppy. She has taught each of them skills (us too!) and we are no longer afraid to have them engage. I have recommended her to my friends already. We all look forward to her visit.
I can't say enough good things about Cathy! She is very reliable, flexible, good about communicating and best of all, takes great care of her pet pals. She texts pictures and messages every time she walks my dog, so I always know when he's had his visit. I'm very happy with the great service she provides.
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.
Paul is great! He has sat for my cats twice and, each time, has played with them, made sure their space is clean, and provided regular updates on their physical and emotional states. I interviewed a few people before I met Paul and what really sealed it for me was that my one feral cat (I have two cats), who normally hides, hisses, or goes on a hunger strike around new people, let Paul feed and pet her during the first meeting. So, in short, Zoe the cat picked well -- Paul is awesome! Will definitely use him going forward.
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!
Sonia was amazing! She was so attentive, made sure that my cat Jack got his medicine everyday. Sent me pictures at my request. My cats adored her. I was able to relax on my getaway knowing my cats were in good hands
We have worked with Ryan for the last 4 years and our dog Chipper loves him. We met with a few people before hiring Ryan, and he was the only person our dog connected with at the first meeting. Ryan is reliable, he has helped out when we are in a pinch, and since he comes 5 days a week, he is very consistent. We would without a doubt recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pet sitter/walker who you can trust and who will take exceptional care of your fur baby.
Stella is great! She responded promptly to my advertisement and was very flexible in accommodating my pet care needs. She and her family are very pet friendly. Our pet loved their company and his stay with them. Throughout the boarding period Stella kept sending pictures to keep us posted about our pet. I will recommend her and also will hire her services again.
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!
There is no one better to care for or train your pets. We have left our three rambunctious boys in their care and they always have fun. They are treated like family and always come home well taken care of a little better than when we left them. When we get to Amy's house the boys go nuts! They don't even care when we walk away. If that doesn't speak well I don't know what would! They get one on one care and lots and lots of cuddles. Your pets are in great hands.
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!
She was great and I am sure that the cats and goldfish were feeling secured and loved by her.
