My husband and I were thrilled with Stef's professionalism and genuine love of animals. This being our first time using a pet service, we weren't sure what to expect. She took great care of our cat who looked well and was very happy when we arrived home from our trip. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring and responsible pet sitter in the DMV. Best regards, Nikki & Oliver
Having quality care for the pet that I love so very much, required much research and someone who genuinely cares about my loved one. After looking for quite some time for a local pet sitter, I was blessed to have found Walking with Renzo & Ruby! My dog and I were one of the lucky ones that got the Renzo & Ruby experience! Their amazing owner Natasha is top notch and is very accomodating. She met all the needs that I asked for and more! Natasha welcomed us to a break the ice session. Mink and I were invited over to meet Renzo & Ruby to help with my dogs socialization skills, this helped with Mink's aprehesion she sometimes has with other dogs. Natasha offered the in home care and drop by visits if I needed it. I was assured that my dog would do fine in her home or mine because Renzo & Ruby were very good about sharing their space! Mink's nervousness diminished as she warmed up to Natasha and the introduction to her babies Renzo & Ruby, prior to her stay! I was elated and impressed at the attentiveness being displayed. While on vacation, Natasha sent the cutest pictures of Mink on the ride over and while warming up to her dogs! I will definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for superior care for their pet/s. Thank you Natasha! Alindia

Donna Andrews has done an excellent job looking after our dear cat. She has a genuine love for cats, founded in long experience, and will make a point of getting to know and appreciate the individual personality of any cat she cares for. Donna prepared conscientiously for her responsibilities with our cat, was meticulous in following all care instructions in letter and spirit, communicated regularly and fully about how things were going from day to day, and left a detailed written summary. We returned to find our cat doing beautifully well, happier after being in her care than with any of 3 other previous cat-sitters. Highly recommended.
Vicky was great! She not only took great care with all of our animals, she handled my anxiety well! We received photos and notes every day with updates of the animals and how they were doing. I told her not to worry about one of my super shy cats because if she tried to find her, it would stress her out more than just being left alone...well, the first day I get a picture of that cat just chillin with Vicky! When we came home we were greeted with an, "Oh...it's you. You're back" bored look from the animals...that was GREAT! I knew she kept them so happy they were not pining away for us or stressed out. I had used another pet sitter for seven years due to convenience, but the animals seemed stressed when we returned. With Vicky, everything was great.
Barking Trails has been excellent to work with so far. Their rates are outstanding, and their responsiveness is on point. I was really hesitant at first to have someone in my house while I am not there, but the dog walker they sent has put my mind at ease! She texts me before arriving, sends me photos of the dogs every day, and texts me again once she leaves the house. (Not to mention that my dogs love her!)
I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.
Our fur babies (4-year old Lab Mix (w/anxiety issues) and 10-year old Puggle) spent the weekend with Cupid Pets sitters Bruce and Mary Lou and their lovely puppy Phoebe! Our pups had a blast!!! So much so, they didn’t want to leave when it came time to pick them up. We will certainly be using Cupid Pets service again for dog sitting and walking in the future!
We had a wonderful experience with Thumbtack and Shatiya. Our longtime pet-sitters left town. We gave the website a try and quickly made the connection to Petstigious. We liked the team's experience, and rates were competitive. The initial meeting was helpful, and we felt confident while we were gone. It was fun and adorable to get pictures and updates. We know the cats were happy and well taken care of. Thank you so much! Until next time, Stacia and Brian (+B & B)
My scheduled cat-sitter canceled at the last minute. I found Happy Paws through Thumbtack. We quickly scheduled a meet the cat session. Angela was great, she had just the right person in mind to watch the cat. Liz was here every day, brought in the mail, cleaned the kitty litter, and played with Lucky each time she visited. She sent me notes every day. Lucky was a happy kitty while we were away. I will hire Happy Paws the next time I need someone to watch my cat.
I had two senior Yorkies and one had special needs. Their pet sitter always provided professional and exceptional services. She would always provide care that met their individual needs and thus provided reassurance to working pet parents.
Crissy is awesome!! We have had her as a pet sitter for four years. She does a fantastic job not only caring for our dogs and cats, but our farm animals too! I would highly recommend her services!!
They pet sit for my cat sassy. The sitter was a polite student from GW, my sassy fell in love with her and I feel very comfortable with her sitting with my cat while I'm away.
Lullaby Pet Sitters took good care of my bruiser!! I was hesitant at first to let a pet sitting company look after my pup but 10/10 I definitely reccomend it was like i never left ! They treat your dog and you like their own !
FourDogLovers was able to watch my puppy, Biscuit, for about a month while I searched for a dog friendly apartment. It was amazing! Prior to arriving, my puppy and I practiced basic commands like "sit" and "down," but we mostly struggled with her crate training and going to the bathroom outside. After spending time at FourDogLovers, she knows the basics of the commands mentioned above and she is even listening to her crating command. This was all after one month! I can only imagine how well she will do with more sessions. The trainer, Kevin, was very hands on, informative, and inclusive. He made sure to keep me updated on Biscuit's progress and he gave me trips and tricks to try at home with her. I proudly recommend FourDogLovers, specifically Kevin, for your family!
Highly recommended pet sitter. Shaki went above and beyond our expectations for taking care of our cats while we were out of town. She sent us videos and pictures of them to warm our hearts and pictures of all the completed duties around the house. She even watered our plants! We'll definitely be calling her again and recommending her to our friends/neighbors.
Outstanding pet sitter, patient, reliable, and very accommodating. My kitties got all the care and attention they needed, I highly recommend.
C-PUP pet sitting service is the best thing since sliced bread. We have hired Shannon's service a number of times over the last year. Most were for pet/house sitting for one week or longer. We could not be happier with speed of booking, quality of service, and prices. Prices are far better than most kennels and we get the added home security benefit of someone in the home while we travel.
Hillary was a amazing dog sitter, she texted us picture and left us a log of what our puppy did while we were gone. We would use her again!
Caroline came through for us when we needed to find a pet sitter fast for our cat Luke as we were going out of town for business. Thanks !
Great overnight sitter. She didn’t spend the night but checked in periodically throughout the day and stayed in my home for a few hours. I would definitely use her again whenever I need a sitter.
