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.

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.

The best pet-sitter ever! The ultimate professional, Cathy checks in ahead of time to confirm, takes excellent care of my pups and leaves without a trace. Best part is that I get pictures and videos of my dogs playing and relaxing, looking very happy. Will have her back again for sure!

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.

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.

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.

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.

She took care of Scrappy my 14 year old Cat. I really appreciate how caring she is because he is getting older and sometimes throws up. I think she is a genuine person and animal lover. I would highly recommend her

We were lucky to meet Phoebe right around the same time we brought home Champ, our yellow lab, when he was eight weeks old. Phoebe has been great dog sitting Champ ever since he was a pup during times when we're at work all day to times when we are away for several days. She has helped socialize Champ with her own two dogs and now takes Champ on group adventure hikes twice a week. It's very easy to see that Phoebe loves dogs which always makes us feel comfortable when she's caring for Champ. We see Champ also enjoys his time with Phoebe. Overall, Phoebe has really helped us ensure Champ is cared for and receives a lot of exercise by filling-in those gaps when we're not around. She's definitely a trustful, dependable and flexible person to call when we need help caring for Champ.

Phoebe did an amazing job cat sitting. She provided regular updates and pictures that put me at ease. We met beforehand, and she was very thorough with her questions on cat care. While I was away, there was ant problem (for the very first time). She went out of her way to clear the issue with twice-a-day visits and regular phone calls; she ensured that the issue did not affect the cat food and water. My cat tends to be shy (she was homeless before I adopted her), but Phoebe was able to bond with her during the week. I highly recommend her and already have plans to use her services in the future!

Phoebe is an incredible caregiver; she really got to know us and our pet. She cares about the relationship and well-being of the animal. Our dog is not a fan of everyone and she won him over; he adores her! And I appreciate how much she clearly cares for him.Finding Phoebe made it possible for us to travel without worry - not only do I know that my pet is well cared for, but also having fun.

Debbie did a fantastic job cleaning our house. Originally we asked for a smaller clean-up job, but when she was there we asked for more and Debbie did everything we asked. (Very Flexible!) Every single surface we wanted cleaned she cleaned and was very pleasant to deal with. Our first night in our new home was pleasant and comfortable because of the work that she did to get every surface spotless. Knobs, handles, inside cabinets, windows, mirrors, showers, tubs, top to bottom kitchen cabinets and floors. Everything! I would definitely recommend debbie to anyone who wants someone to come in and clean their place right before they move in. It's the best money I have spent all year. She charges fair, doesn't milk her time, and will give a very fair quotation on the amount of time she bills. 5 stars absolutely.

Pet sitting and cleaning. I had hired Debbie to stay over with my dog and cat while I went out of town for four days. I also asked her to clean the apartment (710 sqft). She gave me her flat fees for visiting the apartment during the day to walk my dog and staying over night. She gave me a low end and a high end for cleaning. She went me pictures of my pets while I was gone, and when I got home my apartment was cleaned top to bottom including the fridge and base boards. My dog didbdidn'teven seem to care very much that I was home which shows how much time she spent with him. I couldn't have asked for more or better or different. I will hire Debbie again in a heartbeat.

Dear Pet Owner, It is with extreme pleasure that I write this letter of reference for Laura Tait of Laura’s Pet Services. I met Laura at a local dog park several years ago and since then she has cared for Milo (my Chihuahua/Terrier mix) many times. Laura is extremely responsible, dependable, and trustworthy. She has a true love of animals and is able to relate to each one on an individual basis. She is wonderfully patient and always loving towards Milo, who quickly became very comfortable around her. I feel she truly cares about animals and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. She has always listened intently to my instructions and is always willing to work with me to meet all of Milo’s needs. In addition to all the basic requirements, I completely trust her to administer medication and follow through with any special pet needs. When it comes to Milo’s health and well-being, I have complete confidence in her knowledge and judgment. Laura is an excellent communicator. She always does a great job of keeping me informed about how Milo is feeling and behaving. When I call, she often tells me about little, special moments in Milo’s day. She is very accommodating with changes in schedule, and I am always amazed at how quickly she returns my phone calls. She is very flexible and has never had to cancel on me. The longest time Laura cared for Milo was for 3 weeks this past June-July. The peace of mind we enjoy on our vacations knowing that Milo is being so lovingly cared for is invaluable. We are able to relax and enjoy the vacations we can’t take Milo on knowing he is in the best hands. The happiness and contentment I see in Milo when we return is priceless. There is no one I would trust with any pet of mine more than Laura. She is a model caregiver, who truly cares for the welfare of all pets. Milo and I are happy to recommend Laura without qualification. I am confident that any pet owner would be fully satisfied with her services. Please feel free to call me if you would like a verbal confirmation of this letter. Dawn San Jose

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.

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!

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.

We had her come over and walk our dog while we were out of town for a week. She not only walked our dog, but gave her loving attention that she needed. We are very appreciative for everything she has done for us. Will definitely seek out her services again!

About

I am willing to go above and beyond for someone else's pet when they cannot be with them, whether this means taking them out on an extra long walk, spending more time playing with them, or giving them a nice warm bath. I also treat the animals as if they were my own, giving them my complete attention when I am with them.
