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.
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.
Cathy has been walking our almost 5 year old Rottie Niki for only a couple of weeks now. She recently stayed with NIki at our home while we both traveled! We've had a couple of different individuals from over the years sitting with Niki but to date NO ONE has bonded so quickly with the most hardheaded Rottweiler on this planet. Cathy has such a special bond with our girl and she loves her so very much. If there is a Dog Whisper in bay area it must be Cathy =) I don't know what we would do without Cathy! You are the absolute best. Niki loves you, she told us =)
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!
Julie is the best with our spoiled dogs. We recently added a new puppy and Julie is the only one we will trust with her. If it weren't for Julie we wouldn't go on vacation or take weekend trips. Julie is also very responsible with other household tasks, such as mail, cleaning linens after her stay, and watering plants, all without being asked to do so. We love Julie and highly recommend her. She's become part of our family. She's been with us for approximately 3.5 years.
We had been paying general contractors pricing for jobs around the house that we knew we could get lower competitive bids for. Karla sent Miguel out to access our project needs. In having Miguel review our project list, we found out that they are very reasonable and guaranteed the work. They made our project easily manageable; within our budget and busy schedule (even Saturdays if necessary). While we occupied our home, Miguel painted the interior and exterior of our house. Miguel's crew paid attention to dust controls within the house, working around two large dogs in the house and yards and privacy issues with family members. The crews attention to detail was impressive, Miguel quickly resolved any issue that came up. Miguel has many talents other than painting, and was given other projects around our property. We will use this company again.
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!!!
