We've been using Fetch! of South Bay for a number of years now, after being referred to them by our vet. We have absolutely been thrilled with the love and care the staff provide to our pets -- and even though we have moved, the quality of care and particularly the attention to detail is really wonderful! They have even been excellent at several last-minute trips we've had to take. And now that one of our kitties needs insulin injections, its so great to have someone we trust who can come to our home and administer this so that "Molly" doesn't have to get stressed out by a trip to the vet! We highly recommend Fetch! Pet Care to anyone with pets!

Debbie DeMello has helped me a lot in dealing with behavioral issues I was having with my dog. She is caring, direct, and knows what makes dogs tick! She helped me with practical suggestions, training tips, and follow-up. She also teaches small classes which I am continuing to attend with my dog. Great trainer!

My wife wrote the very first review couple of years ago. Do you know what changed since? Nothing:) Stephen is still the best. Our Doberman still loves going to Stephen's place and we couldn't be happier. Stephen goes above and beyond about all the dogs. He was the first one to warn us that our dog was "sluggish and needed new battery". We took him to a vet and sure enough there was liver malfunction. Stephen noted changes in our dog's behavior, not us. That's tells a lot about him and his attitude and attention toward dogs. Doberman Volk is back to normal after some liver treatment and we are very grateful for having Stephen in our lives. He became a very good and special friend for our family too, not just a "dogsitter", but friend for life.

Erika is very loving to my cat. As we all do, we spoil our animals and have certain ways to pet or feed them. She asks about what they like, if there are any special things like treats or tummy rubs. The cat litter, and eating area are spotless when I return. I know that she also volunteers her time as a kitten cuddler at the Humane Society.

I hired Sharon for a 90 minute deep tissue massage. What I got was that, and so much more. Sharon is very experienced. She gives so very much of her collective years of expertise to the experience. I felt like I had a partner. In our first session she was exploring what I can achieve with her services in the long run. I will be going back to see how I can receive long term relief from specific issues. I'm tired of living in a state of tension in my body where pain is a constant. Going to someone like Sharon will begin a solid, integrative process toward my goal.

Lori provided excellent care for my 3 dogs. One of my dogs required special needs care, as she was an older dog who had doggie dementia. She made sure she was given plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration, food, etc., plus cuddling her made all the difference. While away, my dog needed to be taken to the Vet for emergency care. She took charge and worked with the Vet for the care. My other two dogs were given excellent care with walks, food and extra special time for them. She gave all dogs the extra care and love. Whenever they see Lori, they are always so excited to see her. I will work with Lori in the future for my pet care and would recommend her for taking care of your pets.

This lady is amazing. She really has a special way with animals and a unique approach that keeps them at ease. We were having much difficulty administering subcutaneous fluids to our kitty who has kidney problems until we found Jody. With every one of the four vet techs we tried before Jody the cat protested and struggled to get away from the needle, but Jody showed us a new approach where the cat is not restrained and accepts the fluids treatment without getting upset or making a fuss. Thanks to Jody my wife and I are now able to give our kitty the fluids she needs on our own without any outside help. That is exactly what we were looking to learn how to do, and Jody was able to teach us that skill in such a way that it is no longer a big stressful deal for either the kitty, or us. Jody really loves animals and I am enthusiastic in giving her my highest rating and recommendation.

Kimby has looked after our beloved kitties numerous times while we were away on short and longer trips. She cared for them with as much love and affection as we would and her vet experience meant she could administer intravenous fluids to our kitty who had kidney failure. She feed, groomed, kept the litterbox clean and also took care of many household tasks such as watering indoor plants, garden, taking out recycling compost and trash and collecting the mail. She is a lovely sweet person who is also entirely reliable and trustworthy. Most highly recommended!

Sidny has walked my dog for over a year and a half and I have found her to be reliable and conscientious. It’s clear she loves dogs - and my Mellie loves her. She often takes Mellie for longer if I’m away all day. When Mellie got a cut in her foot at the beach, Sidny took her directly to the vet, contacted me, and her insurance paid for it. Your dog would be in good hands with Sidny!

We hired Gloria for Pet sitting for our dog and our two cats while we were away for 3 weeks. It was last minute as my neighbor no longer could watch them.I am really satisfied with the care she gave my pets. She came a few days before we were leaving to meet my pets and I showed her were everything was.My dog has always been underweight, (hes very lean vet said he's healthy) when we returned he looked completely different he was a little heavier and looked very happy. We were afraid he wouldn't eat because we were gone that was not the case. Gloria kept us updated everyday by sending us an email with pictures and detailed message of there day. She was kind enough to bring in our mail and water our plants. We will definitely be hiring Gloria again.

Chelsea is amazing! My Shepherd mix Scoop has been in Chelsea's pack since August 2014, and she takes such good care of him! She picks up the dogs in her van and takes them to a park, on a hike or to the beach. Whenever Scoop gets back he is exhausted and sleeps the rest of the afternoon. Chelsea has also dog sat for us on multiple occasions such as over holidays and long weekends. On Christmas one year she send me a video of Scoop unwrapping a present, which was the cutest thing! She also handles emergency situations very professionally. One time, Scoop ate some poisonous leaves--she was on top of it, called immediately, and was ready to take him to the vet. I trust Chelsea very much, and I know she takes great care of my dog during the day and when I'm away. Couldn't recommend her more!

Simona will be the first person I call when I need someone to watch Smiles! She will also be the first person I recommend to friends. Right before I left for the weekend, Smiles began throwing up. I let Simona know I was nervous about leaving her, but she assured me everything would be alright. Simona came earlier than I had asked to take Smiles to the vet with me so she knew exactly how to treat her while I was gone! Throughout the weekend, Simona gave me updates on Smiles, but did not overwhelm me with texts. Smiles was back to her healthy self when I got home despite being sick when I left! I really appreciated Simona's concern and care for my dog like she was her own!

I have worked with Meg since my dog was 4 months old, up to when he turned 1 year old. Meg not only trained beginning and advance obedience with my dog but also helped us through other dog issues (behavior, vet references, etc). I also want to note that potty training was a breeze with her methods. Meg has knowledge about using positive methods in training. Not only does she work with the dog, but she works with you on how to handle/train your dog. The life style I want with my dog was to take him everywhere with me and I am able to do that with a dog I trust. We’ve been to the beach, road trips, crowded festivals, stores, friend’s houses, etc… Everywhere I go– I get compliments on how amazingly well behaved he is in a chaotic environment. It’s nice to get my dog to sit and obey me in a place full of chaos– where I can take a photo with him sitting next to me or be able to have dinner out in the town with my friends with my dog laying at my feet or going on a stroll with my dog walking nicely beside me. Also, Meg's technique help save my dog’s life before he ran into the street, I was able to call him back right in front of me. Thanks Meg! I highly recommend her for training !!! Totally worth it!!

I recently had to go out of town and my regular pet sitter decided to double her rates two days before. So I went searching for a new pet sitter and I found ElizaPets on Nextdoor and I am so very glad I did. My sweet cat became very sick the very first day I left. Elizabeth went above and beyond taking Beimer to her regular vet and then on to Sage (where if you've been there you know you wait for hours to be seen) where we found that Beimer has kidney cancer. Elizabeth help guide me though the whole process long distance with the vets, their diagnosis and treatment options. She then spent time with Beimer, sitting with her in the sun (Beimer loves sitting in the sun), and never once complained nor asked for addition payment. The first pet sitter only spent 10 minutes of her time when she came to care for Beimer. I'm grateful I found and hired Elizabeth. I highly recommend ElizaPets! Thank you Elizabeth!

Review for Cally Davis Last Fall we adopted a 13 month old German Shepherd from our local Animal Shelter. I have had 6 GS companions in my life but none of these were adopted. All of them have been wonderful Canine Citizens and two of them involved in various 'therapy work' with people. One reason I adopted a German Shepherd: this was my way of thanking this breed for bringing so much joy into my life. I wanted to take care of one who otherwise might not have life in this world..and share the joy of canine-human companionship with her. However, it only took a few weeks for me to realize that bringing in a young dog, whose history I did not know, was very, very different from raising and training a puppy 7 - 9 weeks old!! From both her scars and her behavior, I realized she had been so abused & unsocialized that my main priority was to offer her unconditional love and the certainty of a Home here for her. After three months, I realized that unconditional love is not enough - Coco needed guidance to help her rethink her responses, collaborate with the humans caring for her, and make her needs known without being destructive of household objects. She needed specific help to overcome her intense anxiety and fear of people..and occasionally of other dogs. Being a young German Shepherd she also needed lots of good exercise. Unfortunately, she came into our lives at a time when our own usual rhythms were radically interrupted. My husband was in the hospital and rehab for four months....this occurred six months after she came into our family. All the previous work I had done with her starting rapidly slipping away as she wondered if she was being abandoned and she began her frequent attempts to hide under our house. It was about the time my husband returned home that I met Cally Davis....she was recommended to me by one of my Vet's Techs who also told me that there would be times when Cally would want to have her own dog (Amber) along in both the teaching and exercising sessions with Coco. I started not to call Cally because I did not want Coco to have to compete, with another dog, Amber, for Cally's attention....and what a mistake that would have been!! The combination of Cally and Amber as Coco's Teachers is just superb. Not only has Cally introduced and taught leash etiquette, good social skills, and how Coco can moderate her own excitable behaviors; the combination of Cally and Amber have allowed Coco experiences with another dog-as-teacher that are invaluable. I no longer worry about taking Coco to dog parks or in spaces where we might encounter other dogs, children playing, and great commotion as one can experience in the County Parks here in Santa Cruz. Under Cally's tutelage, I actually look forward to training sessions that involve real challenges for Coco in learning to trust other humans and dogs; learning not to be fearful when some new 'event' happens in her life. She's a smart dog and, through Cally's work with her, she has learned to use her intelligence in ways that benefit her and make her experience in the world a joyful one. In essence, through Cally's work....and my own follow-through with this work: now Coco walks easily on leash, responds quickly to my requests of her, and has a comfort level in the world that I worried she would never gain in any place other than within our home. I can take her...and I do...everywhere I go and know she will be fine; and others will enjoy her company! She is more than fine!: Coco receives many positive comments about her 'way of being,' rarely do we go anywhere that some stranger doesn't make the observation equivalent to: "What a smart, wonderful dog.." It is quite clear to me that the profound changes in her are due in large part to her work with Cally - as well as with Cally and Amber! I especially recommend Cally for those people who have adopted dogs and are unsure of how to read their dog's behaviors or how to assist their dog in making changes that are necessary if this adoption is to prosper both the Canine and the Humans in the 'Family Constellation.'

We needed someone to take care of our cats while we were away for the week, and were lucky enough to find Kristen and Charlize. They did an amazing job: professional and reliable. They asked all the right questions beforehand (special needs, contact info for the vet), took time to get to know the cats and spend time with them each day, and provided a full written report when they were done. We will definitely be working with them again!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is included in a dog grooming?

      Dog grooming is so much more than giving your dog a bath. Dog grooming is a broad term that covers all aspects of canine cleanliness and hygiene. The services included in dog grooming will vary based on your needs and what you choose to pay. Unless they are rolling in cowpies or playing in mud puddles, most dogs are okay getting a shampoo bath only as needed. You’ll know when they need it if they smell bad or are bringing dirt into the house. Some dogs, like shepherds and shih tzus, have thick coats that can get matted and tangled without regular care. Pro dog groomers can deftly blow dry a dog’s hair after a bath so that it is shiny and smooth. Dog grooming can include brushing that detangles dog hair and also thins the undercoat to minimize shedding.

      Dog grooming also includes hygiene services such as toothbrushing and ear cleaning. Clean teeth are important to the health of your dog, and the pros have the patience and proper technique to get it done. Regular dog grooming can stave off tear stains, those reddish stains below your dog’s eyes. Anal gland expression is something not many people want to do on their own, even if they love their dog. A dog groomer can safely and efficiently release any blocked anal gland fluid. Other dog grooming services include nail trimming and clipping. Nationally, dog grooming prices range from $60 to $80. Most dog groomers offer discounts to customers who purchase monthly packages or bundle multiple grooming services at one time.

      What does a dog walker do?

      We all know our dogs love going on long, adventure-filled walks, but jobs and family and commuting can make it difficult to give them the leash time they deserve. You can hire a professional dog walker to make sure your furry friend gets adequate exercise and outdoor time each day. A professional dog walker may be an individual contractor or work for a dedicated dog-walking company. In either case, you want to make sure the pro has the appropriate insurance in case of an emergency. Some people opt to give the dog walker a key to their house; others to have them pick up the dog from the yard. Dog walking can happen as often as multiple times per day, or just a few times a month as needed. Here are some questions to ask when you are interviewing a new dog walker:  

      • Will you or someone else be walking my dog?
      • Do you have a backup plan if you can’t make it for a scheduled walk?
      • Will you walk my dog by itself, or do you walk several dogs at once?
      • What are your different walk routes?
      • When will you pick up and drop off?
      • How will we communicate?
      • Do I have to commit to a schedule or are you flexible?
      • What’s your cancellation policy?
      • What’s your response plan if my dog gets injured or becomes sick?
      • How and how often do I pay you?
      • Do you offer package pricing if I buy multiple dog walks up front?

      What is a dog groomer?

      A dog groomer is a service professional who provides dog grooming and basic hygiene care for your dog. Dog groomers are typically animal lovers who are competent and comfortable working with a wide range of dog breeds and temperaments. Dog groomers are knowledgeable about the care needs for different kinds of dog coats. A poodle will have different haircut needs than a shih tzu, for example, so it pays to have a trained pro provide the proper cut. Good dog groomers know how to safely clean your dog’s teeth, bathe your dog, and cut their nails without going too short. They understand how to trim the hair from around your dog’s face, express anal glands, and clean your dog’s ears. Many people who choose dog grooming as a profession also pursue other dog services such as attending veterinary school, running a doggy day care center, working as a professional dog walker, and more.

      What is a dog groomer?

      Keep your family dogs happy, healthy and clean with regular dog grooming. A dog groomer is a business owner or employee of a dog grooming business who specializes in dog hygiene and grooming. To find a reputable dog groomer, research reviews, ask for references and confirm that the groomer has good standing in the dog grooming community.

      A dog groomer should be comfortable and competent working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. Typically a groomer will have trained with other groomers and taken educational courses to keep abreast of the latest safety information and techniques. There are brick-and-mortar dog grooming businesses, as well as mobile dog groomers who bring all their equipment and provide their services at your home or location. In some cases, brick-and-mortar businesses will also pick up and return your dog for an additional fee.

      What vaccines do dogs need to be groomed?

      It’s important to make sure your dog is up to date on its vaccines before taking it to a groomer. Vaccinations keep your dog and the other dogs that use the establishment healthy. Viruses can linger long after a dog is gone, so an unvaccinated dog can infect a number of other dogs days or even months after their visit. Find out about your dog groomer’s vaccination policies, and think carefully about receiving services from a company that does not require vaccinations. Here are the main vaccinations that are generally required for dog grooming:

      • Parvovirus: Parvo is a nasty virus that can kill dogs within 48-72 hours of infection. The virus is incredibly persistent and, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, is resistant to heat, cold, humidity and drying. It’s spread by dog-to-dog contact or contact with contaminated feces, environments (food and water bowls, collars and leashes, etc.,) or people.
      • Adenovirus 2: Dogs receive this vaccination to protect against canine infectious hepatitis. The vaccination can also helps prevent canine cough.
      • Canine distemper virus: Distemper has no known cure and can cause serious pain, illness, and even death, although recovery is possible with medical intervention.  
      • Rabies: This disease attacks the central nervous system and — when untreated — will
      • lead to death. The CDC recommends euthanizing an unvaccinated animal that has been exposed to rabies, although six-month isolation followed by vaccination is also permissible.
      • Para-influenza: Canine para-influenza leads to kennel cough and an unhappy dog.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
