We have had Tiffany care for our cat, Abby, several times when we were vacationing. She is enthusiastic about her work, even sending us photos of our girl while we were away. The house was well cared for, also. She has a professional demeanor, but also comes across as a warm, sincere person. She will be taking care of Abby for us again this summer.
I am very happy with Cathy's dog walking service. My dog Sassy just loves Cathy and gets really excited when she come to the house. Sassy and I are very happy Cathy is in our life.
Shana was great! Texted every day to let us know how walks went. She had to deal with construction going on at the house and we were very grateful to have her taking the dogs out each day.
Amazing work! I love how professional and how punctual they were! I would recommend this company if you need anything done around the house ! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! I am beyond satisfied with the results of everything I got done! Thank you so much!
Great, professional pet sitters. Wiggling Tails met with us ahead of time to go through their procedures and tour our house. Sent us regular updates while we were out of town, with pictures of our cat. Will hire again!
We recently had the pleasure of contracting with Your Best Friend Pet Services to care for our dog and cat while we visited family in Southern California. The owner, Holly Pardel, was professional and friendly throughout. She scheduled a time at our convenience to come to our house to meet with us and our pets, Roxie and Roscoe. She allowed us to explain exactly the care needed for each animal. Her warmth and attention to detail immediately put both myself and my wife at ease and allowed us to leave for our trip confident that our "kids" were in very good hands. Holly came to our house twice a day. Her visits included feeding, administering medications to our lab, Roxie, as well as taking her for walks around the neighborhood. She sent numerous photos and videos of Roxie at play which again served to reassure us that all was well at home. She also took in the mail for us, and even fed our goldfish, Sunkist! Upon our return home after nearly a week's absence, we found our pets healthy and happy. Her rates are extremely reasonable for the services provided (much less than if we had boarded them). I can recommend without reservation Holly Pardel for all of your dog walking and pet sitting needs. Thanks again Holly!
The team was very professional, and did an excellent job for our house. Definitely worth our money. Would highly recommend them.
My house and pets are in good shape and happy when we come home from vacation. Chelsea has pet sat for us for over 6 years... wouldn't use anyone else.
We have used Rhonda for 10 years or so, and she has taken very good care of our cats. She has been very helpful also in teaching us ways to hold the cats while brushing them, or techniques for giving them a pill or eye medicine etc, as it seems she often is called to do cat care for some of her other clients. Rhonda comes to our house, is comfortable with the alarm, brings in our mail while we are away, and seems to spend a significant time with the cats after dealing with their food and litter. Her manner is very calm and reassuring.
Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.
India is a lovely lady, genuine, caring, she has an open and friendly disposition. She loves all animals and even humans, which is amazing. India is one of the nicest, friendliest, kindest person I have ever met. I really have no hesitation in recommending Inda for any house sit. You will not be disappointed.
Julie is a thoughtful and caring person who keeps the best interest of her clients in mind at all times. She is trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. I trust her with my three dogs and would not have it any other way!
Shanna answered our prayers for an honest and trustworthy pet sitter who knew animal behavior as well as how to be a respectful house-sitter. She is also reliable, available/flexible, and communicative. We have a dog with some socialization issues and Shanna listened to our explanation of his behavior and our approach to managing him. We tried several sitters before Shanna and were unfortunately not confident in their instincts or level of responsibility with our pup. It was such a relief to finally find that person in Shanna. You won't regret hiring her.
When I first contacted Margot, we did not actually have a dog yet. She followed up proactively and arranged to meet us and the dog right after we got him. We felt comfortable with her right away and she left with a key to our house and plans to start walking our dog the next day. It has taken a load off our minds to know she is giving him a mid day break each day. She gives us daily updates on how things went. I would definitely recommend her.
She was best dog sitter reliable snd great with my dogs.I will use her again when I travel

A few years ago I helped out some friends by staying at their house to take care of 4 cats when they had an emergency. Since then they have referred me to their friends and I have enjoyed staying in their beautiful homes while caring for their sweet furry four-legged family members. I don't have kids or pets of my own so I have flexibility and housesitting keeps life interesting. I work full time as a Marketing Manager at a community bank in Oakland. I am 39 single white female born and raised in Oakland. My family and friends are all here too. I am well networked and both professionally and socially, I am engaged in the community.
I have a great amount of experience, as for 2 years, I helped my daughter found her support and rescue service for abandoned pets in Texas. I have a huge love & appreciation for all animals. I have two Rescued dogs of my own (1 Blue Nose Stafordshire & a Dogo Argintino) who are my husband's & my "kids" now that our 2 legged kids are grown. We have always had pets of all kinds throughout life, including, but not limited to, sled dogs in Alaska. I spent the last year & 1/4 taking care full time of an aging disabled Great Pyrenees who walked with the help of a wheel chair.until he passed on to the Rainbow Bridge a few weeks ago. 1 hr. a day I still feed & care for his little "brother" a Boston Terrier. That leaves a number of hours a day/night to love & care for your fur babies. There's nothing I enjoy more about being retired than how much time it gives me to hang out with so many precious & interesting characters.
