Twink is absolutely amazing!! As with many other pet owners, I was very hesitant to let a stranger into my house when I’m not home and even more to take my pup on a walk and be responsible for his well-being. But all my hesitations were put at ease after just one visit from Twink! From the first time my dog and I met Twink, we knew she was completely trust-worthy and reliable. She is great with both my older retriever mix (who goes on walks) as well as my young and very bold kitty (that she hangs out with after and before the walk). You can definitely tell she has extensive experience with animals and really understands them on an individual level. She is very professional, always on-time and even sends me pictures and updates of my dog while they are on their walk. Sampson (the pup) loves his individual walks and the hour long walk provide him with a great mid-day work out. With my work schedule, meetings and other things will occasionally pop up and with very short notice Twink has always been available to help me out! I highly recommend her and after about 10 visits have nothing but glowing, five star reviews!

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.

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!

Peggy did a cat sit while we were out of town. She made sure to clarify all instructions ahead of time, made good notes while we were here, and provided good followup. We would recommend Peggy!

Our dog was skunked and I was desperately looking for someone to come to our house to wash her. I was so happy to have our groomer that we have gone to for 3 generations of dogs answer my add! She is wonderful and does beautiful dog cuts. She answered very quickly and offered to pick up the dog, take her to the dog park so she was calm enough to be groomed (she's a pup still) and take her to the shop. All for a very reasonable price. So happy!

Erika is an EXCELLENT pet sitter!! She is extremely responsive, responsible, thoughtful and caring. Erika impressed us immediately at our first meeting- she was thorough in learning about what our cats' wants and needs, personalities and proclivities. For each visit, Erika sends us short videos of our cats; which gives us peace of mind. She is very quick to respond to our requests, even if its short notice. Erika even arranged for a reliable, vetted sub when she was out of town, and we needed cat sitting. We feel very fortunate to have found Erika to take care of our beloved kitties. We highly recommend her!!!

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.

Deb did an excellent job of first meeting with me, discussing my needs, and making sure she had all the details of what I needed not just for pet care, but also house and watering needs while I was away. She kept me informed of how things were going with Sparky, my cat, and did a really superb job of taking care of him and my house for the week I was away. I absolutely recommend her!

Ciro and Hannah were both very courteous and definitely helped my friend and I take care of cleaning house. We were in need of someone ASAP, and they contacted us immediately and worked on getting help for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to hire a professional, or professionals, who are competent and skilled in what they do.

Adam was amazing with our dog Ella, both when he house sat for us and when he walks her from time to time. When Adam comes to the door Ella immediately is over the moon excited and knows exactly where to go and sit after she is done saying hello.... yes you got it, next to his car so she can go for a ride and a hike. Adam also surprised me when I got home by having the sheets from the bed he slept in while he was house sitting all washed, folded and sitting on the end of the bed. What a delight not to need to clean up after a house sitter. I give Adam "4 Paws Up"
