I have never been away from my babies longer than 6 hrs so I was really concerned being gone 1.5 days. She made me feel really comfortable when she came over for a free to meet with me and my babies before I left. She brought a note-book and wrote down how much food I give them, their litter box arrangements etc. which showed she really wanted to provide the best for my babies. Nicolette even texted my pictures of my little ones with every visit, it brought my anxiety levels way down seeing that they were ok and having fun. She even went out of her way to buy a cat toy for them from her own expense, and my cats love these toy better than any other toy I have ever bought them. I would definitely recommend her to everyone! My babies looked so happy in the pictures, like they never even knew I left. She really knows a lot about animals and shows she really cares! I have one cat that is scared of everyone, but as soon as Nicolette came in, my cat came right up to her and showed she liked her right away, which is a very good sign for a worried mom like me. I'm 100% sure I would use Nicolette for any cat sitting again!
Nikole was an outstanding pet sitter and house sitter. She took care of our two dogs and one cat for a week and did a great job!
Nancy and her assistant, Eric, did a GREAT job on cleaning our house for the new owner. The house smelled great and you would never have known dogs also lived there. Five star rating!
Meg is amazing! She is so trustworthy, honest and hardworking. Our entire family loved Meg. Our dog's eyes lit up when she arrived at our house. I never worried about our pets when we left Austin for the weekend because I knew they were in great hands. Meg took such great care of our dog and cat in a daily basis. She was so kind to both of them and their care was a priority. She takes pride in her work and puts her heart into her job. She was a lifesaver for me with a new puppy and a busy family schedule. She became part of our family! I would rate Meg an A plus and high 10. I only have positive things to say about her and the services for our pets. I would hire her again in a heartbeat !
Beyond impressed! Lis and Cesar were able to help out with my last minute cat sitting needs. Lis met me at my apt. within 24 hours of my initial request for a consultation. Both cats took to Lis immediately and I had nothing to worry about. Very professional and loved the daily picture updates!
I had Megan who is very knowledge and very kind with my dog. My dog is usually agitated and I always have to be careful wit new grooming person. I noticed right away my dog was comfortable with her. And I found out she knows so much more than just grooming and I do trust her to take care of my baby. I have nothing but very good feeling from Megan today and she did wonderful job.
We had Juliet over to watch our Puggles and cat while we were away on vacation for a week. We were extremely satisfied with the service and her level of commitment to keeping our animals safe, occupied and happy during her stay. Juliet also left a homemade meal for us when we returned. I highly recommend Juliet.
Petcularly perfect does cat and house sitting for me. Allison is a great manager and Kate is a great siitter. I have two kitties and one is very shy. Kate does a great job at being sensitive to the issue. We work as a team to solve any issues and I am able to relax if I have to be away. They are a good group!
Heather was outstanding! She took care of my dogs and cat, including two medications for one of my dog's who is older. When I returned home all my animals were calm and happy. I will definitely use Heather again!
Mandy looked after our 2 cats while we went to visit family for 5 days and she was AWESOME! First of all she was very punctual, and super easy to communicate with which made it easy to make the last minute arragements. Second, yet most important, she was GREAT with the cats! One of our cats is very attached and would get really worried and depressed when we would leave, and the other one is very shy and usually hides around strangers, but not this time! They were both happy as can be!! She later described a few things about the cats that she wouldn't have known unless she was spending quality time with them and that I know our cats wouldn't do unless they were comfortable and trusting of her. Mandy just has a very easy going, calming and kind personality that really put both the cats and myself at ease. She also managed to send us regular updates, even though it was nearly impossible to reach us where we were. She sent some photos as well, and I could just tell the cats were 100% content. It was so great not having to worry! We will definitely be calling her again since now I can actually look forward to our next trips rather than dreading having to leave my favorite fuzz balls with someone. Oh, and on top of all that she kept the house super tidy and clean(I think even better than when we left). So without a doubt, I would recommend Mandy to anyone and everyone who is looking for a pet sitter they can trust. Thanks again Mandy!!!
I'm very pleased with this company! I have 2 senior rescue dogs & 1 large Siberia cat. One of my dogs is special needs because she's blind. The other dog is a new rescue for me & she needs reassurance & lots of love as she adjusts to her living situation. Needless to say I'm not comfortable leaving then alone all day. I knew Renee was the right person for all 3 of my pets. All 3 immediately responded positively toward her. Lots of wagging tails! Renee took care of my brood for 9 hours the first time. I was amazed...I came home to relaxed, calm & happy pets!. She'll be coming back because I plan on hiring her again & again. A+++
I went out of town for a little over a week and needed someone to provide care for my cat. Elese was very responsive and professional. She was also very accommodating when coordinating the drop off of my key. My cat seems very happy in the daily reports I revived. I will most definitely be using Happy Paws again!
We recently had the pleasure of engaging Amy to care for our two cats while we were out of town. We couldn’t be happier with the service she provided. She did all the feeding and maintenance activities we requested but went above and beyond when playing and caring for our two loved ones. She sent us great pictures and updates, it was reassuring and fun to receive the photos. Our cat Kato is a real recluse when it come to new people in the home… We were so surprised to see pictures of him out playing with Amy and our other cat D’jango. We highly recommend Amy’s pet sitting!
Laura took wonderful care of our dog a couple days while we were vacationing on Coronado. Our dog had a full day of fun play and came home happily tired.
Karina loves animals, anyone can see that. She really enjoys playing and caring for them. It's fun to just watch the interaction. She's trustworthy and have taken care of my animals and house several times. From a quick walk visit to staying in my house with them for 2 weeks. I have a cat and a dog, and my dog has an energy of a toddler. she played and walked him several times a day, and played with my cat as he was a kitty. They both love her, and so do I. It's a shame she moved away, I still haven't found anyone I trust to leave my babies with, and I travel constantly! the West Cost families are lucky to have her around!!
Ghaidan was great with both our cats! We had to leave town for an extended period (over a month) and we had no worries about them the whole time. We were provided text updates and photos regularly. Would not hestate to use them again!
I have 4 purry furry cats aging from 6 to 16 years old. I hate going away because I always think my babies are going to fall victim to something horrible and I won't be there for them. They all have different personalities and needs that require a personal touch. My youngest has to play a while each day or she will try to turn my nervous and timid Calico Manx into a confetti colored chew toy. Bunny, the Manx, has issues with her stomach and has a special diet. When she is spooked she pees, that is something I want checked by someone knowledgeable about cats. My boy cat had kidney surgery last summer and it's necessary to make sure he isn’t having pain or appetite issues. Our eldest cat conscripts the others into shenanigans and this often means we come home to find that she has discovered a food we didn’t know was available and made it into a buffet. She is small, looks innocent, but is wily with a plan in the works every moment. These are the reasons I can't just drop and go, I need to know they are cared for or I can't enjoy my time away. I am afraid they will change the locks and rule the roost if we don’t feed them routinely. I can’t take the chance the freeloaders won’t get into trouble if left alone or to the care of someone who just comes by to fill their dishes. Lori gave me the best price quote on Thumbtack and had a great conversation with me via messages making my selection easy. She arrived at our home and met with my husband and furries to go over our routine and meet each of our cats a few days before we left. She was well loved by our more social kitties and my husband said she had great vibes. Good vibes is important to me because I want someone who is compassionate taking care of my babies. While we were away Lori came 3 times a day to feed, play, and clean their box. After every visit she sent me a photo and a status update. She replied promptly when I had comments or questions leaving me feeling like everything was under control. It meant everything to me to hear her tell me what she had experienced in each visit because she was caring for what is most important in my life: my family. When I arrived home there was a note from her with a kind message about her enjoyment in caring for my cats, saying how beautiful and sweet they are (they had her fooled because she didn’t mention sly and devious). Our big Angora was so soft when we came home I was convinced she had spent most of her visits petting him. He confirmed this suspicion when he kept by the door waiting for her to return rather than joining me for Mommytime. The cost of our sitting and care was cheap in my opinion. It was obvious that Lori and Pawprints aren’t trying to take advantage of our need for a sitter by trying to nickel and dime us. Some of the quotes I received for caring for my cats was astronomical for 3 days, one was over $400 for 9 visits. Our entire weekend of Lori’s incredible care cost us only $175. Before we moved we had a fantastic sitter who was comparable in care fees and care quality we just received from Pawprints. We are truly blessed to have found Lori, as we were to find Ashley previously. I will be using Pawprints service in the future and I feel so much more confident to go places knowing Lori will be caring for my babies.
I was in the hospital all of a sudden, and she even spend extra time with my pets she's worth every penny and more She's especially wonderful with unusual breed cats I have Sphynx and Devon Rex, and she is knowledgeable with both breeds and their special needs and need for attention She is my cat sitter for life
Hired Alex to pet sit our cats while we went out of town last weekend. Was nervous to leave our fur babies with just anyone; however, upon meeting Alex at our consultation, I knew she was someone I could trust. Alex is very professional, accommodating and reliable! She also kept us up to date on how our cats were doing and sent pictures of them while they were under her care! Would highly recommend Alex and look forward to having her take care our fur babies in the future!!!

I am a San Diego based animal lover and dog walker. I began walking dogs of all shapes and sizes when I moved to this lovely city, nearly 6 years ago. I enjoy socializing your pet at local dog beaches and dog parks! If your little guy/girl is more of a lone wolf, I'll cater to that need and provide walks that your pet will enjoy. I'm an avid runner and first-time marathoner. If your pet enjoys trail runs as much as I do, we can boost energy levels and build stamina, while taking in what Mother Nature has to offer.
