    Great so far!
    Meet and greet today -- very thorough, thoughtful questions about my animals. Good insight to logistical details I wouldn't normally consider in making sure a caretaker would need to know.

    Let me start by saying Wren is great! She's very professional and caring with my kitties! I had a little trouble getting started with the company (receiving paperwork, etc.), but it's been smooth sailing ever since. I really like the ability to schedule and pay online.

    We were in a unique situation in that we were moving across the country and needed a quick last minute sitter for our cat while we drove our furniture/stuff out to Denver. The services were great - lots of professionals and very informative. They sent updates on the first and last days to show our kitty was doing well and they even left a report card for our cat when we got home (he got an A+ by the way!) - a really unique business structure. I've used many cat sitters and this was by far the most organized system I've seen with great people. I highly recommend them and I will be using them again.

    We had Jane check in our cats several times while we were on vacation. She texted with any problems and sent photos. We came home to happy kitties and lots of notes on the care provided. Couldn't have asked for a better petsitter.

    This was the first time we had to leave our cats alone. We were apprehensive but came home to find very content cats. Wren sent adorable pictures of them to us every day and took the time to play with them. I forgot to ask her to water my outdoor plants, but she saw the need and asked if I would like her to give them some water. She was so thoughtful! We will definitely use the services again.

    Well it made me question how long the dog walker took my dog for need her to let her out to pottie but she only allowed her to pee not work up to poop
    PAWSitive Petsitting S. May 18, 2016

    Hi Veronica All of the visits that you have scheduled with us are half visits, which are a short 15 minutes long. Your petsitter took Samantha out and walked her the entire 15 minutes each time that she was there. She does her best to encourage her to go potty the entire time. Samantha may need regular visits which are 30 minutes long in order to give her more time to do her business? Please contact us to see if we can help come up with the best option for Samantha and you. Thank you. PAWSitive Petsitting Services 303-807-1408 www.pawsitivepetsit.com

    I loved Jackie. She came by the weekend before just to meet Paco. Very important to me to meet her ahead of time and see the dynamic between her and Paco. I needed her to feed Paco and walk him while I was at an all day work event. I loved that she texted me a picture of him all snuggled in before she left. I also appreciated the report card that was left. I would definitely love to use Jackie again.

    Our apologies, we always do our best to arrive on the requested time however we do ask for a 2 hour window of time to work with due to a possible extended time at previous visit, construction, traffic or a number of other possibilities that can delay our arrival.

    I really didn't want to give such a poor rating, because I never got a chance to experience their services, but that's the reason for the rating. PAWSitive sent me an email on Monday saying they could provide pet sitting on that Friday. On Weds they said on the phone that my pet sitter would be calling that day. No one ever called. I left town on Thursday, and called to give the details to the sitter by phone, and the company said they didn't have anyone for the job. I was already out of town with 3 pets at home and no one to look in on them. This should NEVER happen. I was able to find a friend of a friend to check on them, but what an inconvenience! And at the last minute.

    Wren, sitter, was absolutely amazing. This was our first experience with hiring an overnight pet sitter and was worried about having someone we didn't know stay at our house. We felt instantly comfortable with Wren during out first meeting. Our dogs fell in love with her. She sent daily pictures to us during our trip and left us a daily report. WONDERFUL and a great price.

    My specific pet sitter Jackie is wonderful! It was a very easy process of getting set up with my specific sitter. She is easy to communicate with either via email, text or calling. We had a great first meeting and have had her back to the house many times to watch my cat. She is a very caring sitter and leaves detailed notes about what she did with my cat and his behaviors. I look forward to working with Jackie for as long as I have my cat!

I know they are getting more than food and a walk with each visit. The price is great for well-skilled and bonded sitters. I will be using them a lot this summer!

She is a great communicator with me and leaves me notes and often will text me to tell me things about the dogs or house. I love her and Pawsitive Petsitting!
