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.
Maria was amazing! She spent a great deal of time making sure the place was thoroughly clean! She is friendly and great with my pets! Be sure to allow a lot of time on her first visit. When she says "thorough"... she means it!!
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!!!
She came over within a day and helped us learn how to teach our puppy and we left with 3 tricks down!
Yolanda genuinely cares! She is attentive, on time, caring, thoughtful, and she will take great care of your dog! She sends thoughtful notes and wonderful pictures of your dog on her walks while you're at work. Give her a call if you're looking for someone caring for your pet, you're lucky to have found her! She's a winner! and your doggie will love her.
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 got so lucky finding Jody! Jody did an amazing job taking care of our kitty and house for 5 days while we were out of state. She checked in daily per request, and sent me photos of my cat throughout our absence. I did not have to worry about my cat being lonely or getting anxious because Jody slept over and kept my cat at ease by sticking to our usual schedule and giving him lots of love. When we came home our cat was not frazzled or anxious, which was our previous experience when we'd leave for long periods of time. We joke that our cat misses Jody and look forward to hiring her again when we plan our next trip!
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!
I tried Pam for the first time and she was great! She took care of my elderly cat while I left for a week long vacation. She gave me regular updates when she visited so I didn't have to worry about my furry friend one bit.
Shawnon is great with my boys and treats them as her own "ratties" (rat terrier twins)!
Melissa is the only person I trust with my pet sitting needs. She is professional yet caring and compassionate. She has been able to be flexible and works around my crazy travel schedule without a complaint. The best part is that my dog loves when Melissa is walking him or pet sitting.... it's like having his favorite aunt coming to visit him!
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.
Taylor has been a great person to hire for our dog. We could not be happier. Our 3 yrs old Doberman liked her from the moment she showed up, and now he feels lucky and happy when Taylor comes in to take him for a walk. If not for Taylor, he would be sitting all day long waiting for the first of us coming from work. Taylor is our Life Savior. So glad to find her here on this site. Thank you, Taylor!
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!
Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.
