  1. #1 The Cat Nanny

    (47 reviews)

    Elizabeth B.

    Joyce was great with our cat Clover. She came over to meet her before we left and to go over the routine. Clover is an adopted stray and isn't great with new people but Joyce was really patient with her. After we left I got lots of texts with photos which were reassuring and showed Clover to be settled and happy. When we got home it was like we never left!

    (25 reviews)

    Ashley D.

    I could tell from the beginning that Twink truly loves animals. She is caring, kind and conscientious. She always puts me at ease with daily texts and emails about how my pet is doing. I have worked with her on several occasions now and have always been really happy with her high quality service! Would highly recommend.

  3. #3 *Sparkle* Cat Sitting

    (15 reviews)

    Matt P.

    Mike gave me daily updates and I knew my cat was being taken care of... He's a rescue (my cat) and very skittish around people he doesn't know, so I knew he would probably hide when Mike was there, but he did let Mike take a picture of him to send me, and he was calm and happy when I got home, thanks Mike!

    Michael was really great!! He did a meet & greet before we went out of town to meet my cat; see where things are in the apartment. He brought his own cat toys and shows true love an affection for animals. While I was away he sent me updates and photos (love that!!), and even brought in packages. My cat was well cared for, happy, and I would definitely recommend and hire Michael again.

Bliss Bound Hound

(14 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love working directly with animals and helping responsible pet owners bridge the gap that we all often find between all the time pressures of modern life and the needs of our pets.

Because I specialize in training and behavior, I've brought a focus on these issues to our unique business model, which connects and resolves competing requirements between pet service categories. Being able to connect all these complex dots allows me to make a real difference in the lives of people and their pets, and as a result, Bliss Bound Hound becomes a part of the family in many homes.

Building meaningful relationships with our clients and the dogs we serve are truly amazing. We very seriously work to bring families, people, and pets together to celebrate the joy that pet ownership can bring into all our lives. It's a gift to be able to call this my job!

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

Bliss Bound Hound was officially born on November 2nd, 2016, and our client list has grown continuously since. I'm thrilled to wake up every day and dig into the latest challenge of our growth phase.

I love being able to listen to the requests our clients make and turn those requests into new product offerings. I see our job as a responsibility to lower the cost of responsible pet ownership to the point where rates of animals being given up for adoption decline and the costs of rescuing an animal decrease substantially, making adoption a more viable option for larger numbers of people.

I imagine a world where joint transport of animals to the vet, grooming, exercise, and other services in electric vehicles has a real and lasting impact on our environment. I look forward to helping build a world where pet ownership is about playing and working with your dog and not taking time off work and feeling that ownership is a burden. "It takes a village," as the old adage says, and I love the fact that Bliss Bound Hound can join human kindness and technology to create awesome solutions for the future!

    Martha was very professional and thorough before she agreed to care for my pets. We met twice so that she and Denise could meet my entire family of 5 cats and 2 dogs. I'm sure that my pet family was happy to have someone there overnight while I was out of town. I got almost daily updates on my pets which were greatly appreciated. I feel confident that they received very good care in my absence and would highly recommend Wiggling Tails Pet Sitting Service

  • Dog Daycare & Boarding

    Doggy Doggy at Kit's House

    (11 reviews)

    We highly recommend Kit Pogarsky's Doggy Doggy dog boarding and day care. We have an energetic dog who likes to be near his people, and a dog kennel just wasn't right for him. When we first contacted Kit, he responded promptly and answered all our questions, and suggested we drop by to introduce our dog a few days before we went away. It was a great suggestion, as Griffie was then familiar with Doggy Doggy and Kit when we dropped him off to go out of town. Griffin has now stayed at Doggy Doggy several times, and we are totally comfortable leaving him for stays of a few days or a week or more. We know that for a reasonable price, our dog is getting the attention and exercise he craves and needs, and also gets to chill out in a great space and yard in Alameda. Very happy to recommend Doggy Doggy, -Mavis and Nick Marble

    While we don't have dogs to walk, Matt also offers pet-sitting and feeding services and we have hired him on many occasions to feed and care for our rabbits when we're away. He always does a fantastic job when he stops in to give them food, clean their litter box, check their water and let them out of the cage to play for awhile. The bunnies love him, and so do we. J.D.

Bathing and nail clipping services are also offered at both facilities. Lastly, our Doggie Webcam is available for owners to peek in on their pooches throughout the day.

    Linda's K9 Assistance

    Hello there! My name is Linda Recio, and I am a big time dog lover. I own two myself. I am here to help you keep your pet fit and happy! I'm looking forward to giving your loved one the exercise and attention they need. I will not only walk, but run and play with your pup. I also assist in various other tasks, such as pet sitting, light grooming, and bathing. Hope to hear from you soon! Here is a short description of what I can do for you: * Walks - Each walk is a full hour-long. I would walk your dog either around your own neighborhood, dog parks, and quieter areas around San Mateo, depending on your wishes. * Dog sitting - I will be keeping your dog company overnight, so that your dog is most comfortable while you're away. I make sure that your pup is well-fed, well-exercised, and has plenty of potty breaks. Overnight dog sitting will be 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. * Feeding - Sometimes, you just need a little help while you're out during your day. I can go over and feed your pups, take them out to use the restroom, and take that stress off your shoulders! * Bathing and light grooming - I will be bathing your dog at your premises or at my own, if desired. I could also do light grooming, such as brushing the dog's teeth, brushing its coat, and trimming its nails. If you're interested, please give me a call. If interested in in-home boarding, please contact me as soon as possible as I am being booked up fast!
