Elizabeth and Steven did a phenomenal job taking care of our 14 week old labradoodle Monty and our 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier Cooper. Because of Monty's age they stayed in our home which was not something we were initially comfortable with until we met Elizabeth. She immediately put us at ease with her professionalism and friendly nature. While the dogs were under their care we received consistent updates on what they were up to. We had a change of schedule and they were incredibly accommodating. Before they left they changed out sheets, cleaned up and left a really nice note...from the dogs. I would highly recommend Pawsitively Purrfect to anyone who needs pet sitting.

I have known Cathy Rice for many years and have had her dog sit for my two Golden Retrievers. Cathy has a gentle manner with our dogs, and gives them the attention they need while I am away. My dogs have been well cared for in my absence. Cathy has a friendly personality and is very flexible with her schedule. I would highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.

Christina did a great job cat-sitting for us while we were out of the country, even extending the time for an extra day on short notice when our flight was delayed.

She taught me useful strategies to discourage Robin's barking at other dogs, as well as some general thoughts for living happily together. He has picked up on these ideas, as I have. Our good relationship will only get better: more praise, less discipline!

Stella helped us to look after our cat for 11 days when we were traveling outside. Our cat is very shy at the first, because it's not normal that someone else look after him. He always hide behind something and just sleep. However, Stella not only feed him as a task. She paid a lot of time to stay and play with him. Finally our cat showed a great trust to her. I can receive photo and video report every time she came, and I was surprised that our cat was as intimated to her as to us. That's really a great job. We will happy if Stella can sit our cat again in the future.

The first time I met Laura I knew she was a huge animal lover. My sheltie, Charlie, is usually reserved around people he doesn't know, but he took to Laura immediately. In fact, he couldn't wait for Laura to take him on his daily walks - whenever she arrived, he would be at the door ready to go. Charlie also liked to go to Laura's house for pet sitting. I felt very comfortable leaving Charlie at Laura's house because the other dogs she was sitting for were always friendly and never aggressive toward Charlie or toward each other. I highly, highly, recommend Laura Tait for all of her pet services - she's a real gem.

We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!

Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!

When I first contacted Margot, we did not actually have a dog yet. She followed up proactively and arranged to meet us and the dog right after we got him. We felt comfortable with her right away and she left with a key to our house and plans to start walking our dog the next day. It has taken a load off our minds to know she is giving him a mid day break each day. She gives us daily updates on how things went. I would definitely recommend her.

Thank you Selina. My bishon poodle had surgery last year and gained a good amount of weight. It is hard to find the time to take my dog for walking, but Selina has helped my Fifi exercise at least 3 times a week and has been very patient with her. Keep up the great work!

I have seen Naomi interact with all breeds of dogs and every time, she is pleasant, patient, fun-loving, cheerful and responsible. Qualities that I think dogs respond to and as pet-owners, would be relieved to find in someone looking after their pet. When Naomi met my dog, she happily helped me entertain and care for him whenever I was not around. Naomi is lovely and I would gladly recommend her services to walk your beloved family pet!
