About

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 was amazing cat sitter for us. She checked in on Merlin once every couple of days while we were out on a week long vacation. She not only followed every instruction we left her, but also went out of her way to bond with our cat and keep him company (and trust me our cat is not the easiest to bond with). She knowledgeable and confident around pets. I will definitely be checking if she is available next time we need a pet sitter.

Ellen is a real jem!! Once you have Ellen as your pet sitter you can never think about anyone else because she is so good with pets and a real professional . Right from the time I first spoke to her about my pet sitting needs to looking after my 2 year old cat she has been the best . I interacted with a couple of pet sitters before I met Ellen and I could honestly say that I never found someone who considers pet sitting more than a job. She has so much of love towards what she does. She updated me with pictures , videos , my cats eating habits and did check my mails on a regular basis. When I was back my cat was happy and healthy.. What more do I need . Her rates are so reasonable and she is very flexible with timings . I have already started recommending Ellen to all my friends . Next time I have a trip coming up I do not have to worry.

Elizabeth truly loves her dogs and treats them as if they were her own children. She brings them treats, as well as takes care of their every need (brought our boxer a water bottle for his walks and a more comfortable harness for our little pom. She arrives excited to see Zeus and Daisy, and they adore her. Thank you Elizabeth for loving our animals the way they should be loved.

Belinda was instrumental in getting my office and home back under control. In our introductory meeting she helped me identify my issues and pain points. Helping me organize my office was frosting on the cake. We also tackled the linen closet and laundry room. As a testament to her good nature, she helped me clean out the garage, which is no-woman’s land. Belinda also has a great referral network, which resulted in us hiring a landscape designer and installation team, finding a local professional piano teacher, and painter, to name a few. She was also a tremendous help in the holiday season with both professional and personal obligations. Whether for a big project, helping with an assortment of little things, or planning an event, I highly recommend Belinda.

We had Jeanne spend nights at our house to take care of our two cats and to watch the house. She was sensitive to the needs and personalities of the cats. We appreciated her frequent pictures and updates while we were away. She was careful about following our instructions and left the house in good order. We recommend her to others and would have her at our house again.

Kelly was the best! Obviously a dog lover, we felt great leaving our four-legged son in her expert care. She sent us daily updates and went above and beyond in caring for Doc. We will definitely use her again instead of a kennel. Very reasonable pricing too!

We would highly recommend Andrew as a pet care-giver in the Bay Area. He proved himself to be extremely responsible, trustworthy and professional. We were very happy with the services he provided. He was required to provide care for our 7 year old lab-mix, Rusty. A big dog who needs a lot of exercise. The schedule required 3 day-time visits, at 8am, 12:30pm and again at 5pm, to walk, feed and play with our dog, over the two-week period that we were away. Andrew is obviously very comfortable around animals and our dog loved him. We had other arrangements for overnight care, however, Andrew did everything we asked of him and after our initial meetings with him, my husband and I were very comfortable with his ability to be conscious of the security of our home during these visits. Our dog was very, well taken care of during our absence. We will definitely hire him again, whenever the need arises.

Monica has been very reliable in all that she does for us. She comes each day and gives reports on how our puppy does on his walk. She lets us know if anything is wrong or if there are any problems. She is on time each day!

About

We are now almost 2 years old! Pictured above is Zoe, an adorable mini-Alaskan husky who was our first client when I began DSP back in March, 2010. Eventually, I hope to get an entire gallery of photos and videos up on here, so people get more of an idea about what DSP is all about. Located in the Mission district of San Francisco is Doggy Stroll Patrol Inc. Reliable, responsible individual who will excercise, play with, and most importantly clean up after your pooch for a modest fee. For $11.50 hourly (or $23.00 for 2), you can relax as your pooch is pampered under my loving care. A bit about myself: I'm originally from the East Coast, I just moved here about 6 and a half years ago from New York. I have an extensive background in dog training, shelter and fostering organization volunteer experience going back for over 15 years. I'm very committed to, and love the experience of working with other's canines as if they were my own. In fact, I also have a dog of my own as well. Her name is Tilly (her lovely face is our company logo), and she loves people and other dogs to hang with especially. She was a Rocket Dog rescue pooch, and she's awesome. If you are in need and you just can't find that extra time to stroll your pooch (or pooches!) down the street, or to the park, give us a jingle. I'd be happy to set up an in-person meeting with you and your pooch to discuss your needs. Right now, I'm available during the day, 7 days a week. We only accept small dogs for boarding, due to space limitations. Unfortunately, we can only accommodate one small dog at a time. Our 2 and 3-day weekend packages for boarding is $40/per day, $80 and $120 respectively. If you are on Google Calendar, or are willing to join, you can check our availability online as well. We also hope to have a website up in the near future. Other boarding options can also be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Please do drop an email with your contact information and let me know your needs. I look forward to meeting you and your pooches! Although based in the mission, I do travel city-wide. So, if you're in the city, have a dog, or dogs, and need some help, I'll definitely travel for you. Please drop me an email. I look forward to working with you.

My business philosophy is to care for your pets the way YOU would: in the comfort of your own home! Your pets will have the same familiar sights and smells that they are used to while you are away for the day, for the weekend, or longer. With a variety of home sitting services that are also available, this ultimately means less stress on you and more importantly, less stress on your pets.

The option of leaving your pets at home versus the expense and stress of a kennel or vet stay will allow them to stick to their normal daily routine. Pet Sitting to the Max is a sole proprietorship and is available year round. All of our services include a complimentary in-home consultation prior to starting service. The in-home consultation gives you the opportunity to meet me and go over your detailed, first-hand instructions. It also allows your pet(s) to become acquainted with me in your presence, which is critical to ensuring that your pets will be most comfortable while you are away. The length of visit is normally 45 minutes; however, this can be adjusted if the pet needs additional time due to age, health or special needs of the pet. Here are some features that Pet Sitting to the Max offers: Please note that all of our services are tailored to the needs of your pets. • Daily dog walks while you work or on vacation • Daily, weekly or monthly visits • Freshen water and food each visit • Transportation to and from the vet or groomer • Single or multiple daily visits • Daily log of pets activities and behaviors • Administer prescribed medication • Cleanup of yard, litter boxes, cages, etc. • Collect mails and papers • Water plants and turn on/off lights • Trash and recycle out on collection day I also provide an emergency medical care: In the event of an unforeseen emergency, I will take your pet(s) to your clinic of choice, or after-hours, I will take your pet(s) to one that is 24-hours.

About

I'm a recent graduate from San Francisco State University, with a degree in cinema and with a love for animals. I have been pet sitting/house sitting since I was a teenager and have continued to do it alongside with my job as a freelance stylist. I am reliable and make sure the pet is well taken care of in the absence of its family -- feed them, walk them, play/hang out with them, etc. I also provide some light house cleaning, while the family is gone. Extra skills: I do have experience with diabetic dogs (my parents' dog is a diabetic).

Hi there, I was looking for a dog sitter in Mountain View area and came across your page. I'm hoping to find someone who could stay with my dog, Sadie, overnight while my husband and are out on vacation, Dec. 21st ­ Jan.6th. If some of these days don't work, but most do, that could be ok as well. To tell you a little bit more about my dog. She's a 6 year old yorkie-doxie mix, 11 lbs. I adopted her from a shelter when she was 2, but she still seems to have not completely recovered and can be very shy with people and somewhat aggressive with dogs. However, overall, she's very well behaved and playful. My stepdaughter who lives with us also has a dog, a chiwawa jack russell terrier mix, that Sadie absolutely loves to play with. I was hoping that if you or someone from your team are available during the holidays, you could start walking both dogs maybe once every one or two weeks, so that you could both get to know each other better. I would like both dogs get walked, but only one will require dog-sitting during the holidays. Please let me know when and if you're available, Thank you, - Rina
