Joyce was amazing with my two cats. She even sent us pictures of them while we were away. Joyce fed our cats the prescribed amounts, cleaned the litter box, and played with them. We came home to very happy kitties and plan to use Joyce for all of our future cat sitting needs!

Tiffany did a great job taking care of my cat Rufio. She sent videos and photos of him during her visits and took in all of our mail/packages. Tiffany clearly loves animals and her knowledge of animals put us as it ease with her in charge. I would not hesitate in hiring her for future cat sitting needs.

Marina is amazing! I've hired her twice for cat sitting and she always sends me photos of my cat without fail :) I have peace of mind whenever I leave my cat with her. She even goes above and beyond with her services; she cleans my apartment, she waters my plants and even bought a new bowl and food mat for my cat.

I hired Shelley for cat sitting. It was on short notice, but she was very quick to respond and meet up to go over instructions. I was gone for almost a week, but Shelley was great with providing video and picture updates. When we got back home, was just as we left it and my cat barely even noticed we left :) Overall, my experience was great. I can't recommend Shelley enough, she was fantastic!

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.

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.

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!

Krystal is absolutely amazing. I knew she as a great fit right from our initial communication and confirmed during our first meeting and subsequent visits. She has a true love for animals and it show in her work. I'll definitely be contacting Krystal again for future pet sitting needs.

Susi was wonderful! I'm so glad we found her. She stopped by on short notice to meet our kitty and get a tour. She was very friendly and organized, and our kitty seemed to like her immediately. We even returned from our trip to a welcome home note and treat, which was such a thoughtful touch. I highly recommend Susi for any cat-sitting needs!

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.

Diana is so great with my cat! She cares a lot about him and makes sure to spend time playing with him when she visits. Every time she visits she is great at communicating how he is doing. I will surely continue hiring Diana for cat sitting :) Thank you, Diana!

My husband and I hired Heather To help Us with our pup Summer. Heather was great at assisting us in overcoming summer's anxiety with her leash. Heather's caring and patient work with Summer successfully cured her resistance to being walked. Heather also worked with Summer on some basic commands like sitting and staying. Heather was wonderful with the work she did with Summer.

Pam watched our dog for a little over a week while my family and I traveled out of town. The overall experience was smooth and great. Pam was responsive, gave updates a couple times a day and immediately if we asked, and was flexible with pickup and drop off times. Our dog even stayed another unplanned night with no problem! I will use her services again in the future.

Relax, Rover.

I was worried about being able to find a dog walker when I found out my dog is reactive, and I'm very glad I found Erika. My dog improved quickly soon after Erika started walking her. Erika is always on time and lets me know when she is picking up my dog. She sends me updates and photos after the walk. She makes sure my dog is comfortable and having fun during the walk. My dog is a lot calmer when she sees other dogs now and it's fun to take her outside.

Jared is a very easygoing, responsible and caring person. We feel very safe to leave our baby Munchkin with him. Our dog isn't so friendly but Jared's charm and kindness gave Munchkin and us comfort and a warm touch. Jared is our go to dog sitter! -Al, Mimi & Munchkin <3

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!
