Stephanie is the most reliable pet sitter I have found. I love her and my pets love her(dog & cat). She is dependable, caring, prompt, loving and always available in an emergency. I will not use anyone else. She has stayed at my home for vacations when we weren't able to take the pets along. Very trustworthy. I have never had any problems with Stephanie and I highly recommend her to those people who want their pets to have the attention that they themselves would give to them. She treats your pets like they are her own and you don't find that with every pet walker/sitter.

I forgot the challenges of a new puppy, since my older guy is 13. The beginning was a tough adjustment and our family needed help fast. After calling referrals from my sphere, I was still at a dead-end and a week later. I tried Thumbtack and Natasha was nearly instant in her response-- even quicker to meet us and assess the situation in comparison to the other respondents. After meeting Natasha I knew I didn't need to look further and she would be the perfect fit! Although she walked our guy for a week she carefully introduced him to Andre who would take over our daily walks. Natasha wasn't going to get off that easy though. We had a trip come up and our pup needed a sitter. Unfortunately, he was still due a set of shots, so interactions with other dogs had to be limited. Of course, Natasha came to the rescue. With daily photos, continued walks and lots of love, our little guy couldn't have been happier. Now that we're back to just the walks, Andre is just as great as Natasha. He's kind, gentle, and you can tell, really cares for the dogs on his route. I couldn't have asked for a better compliment to Natasha. After every walk we get a report of their route, dog's behavior and a few photos. If you're looking for a 5-star full-service pet company (because they do so much more than walking dogs), please reach out to Walk with Renzo and Ruby Inc. They're the best!

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.

We board dogs at our home, and over time, our gates weakened; one a walk-thru gate, another a double drive-thru gate. KG Yardworx was one of many we considered to replace our gates, but hands down we were very impressed in Kelcey's enthusiasm and interest in working with us with alternate materials and custom design. We provided Kelcey several pictures from Houzz and Pinterest of our gate concepts, and together we came up with a most original sturdy gate for both entrances. Both gates were completed timely and to our specifications, with literally hundreds of views within days of being posted! Kelcey's coming back for more of our projects.

Canine Dominion is a great company to work with. The owner came to my home and picked up both of my dogs and dropped them off once boarding was completed, which was a awesome feature. During there stay with Canine Dominion, my dogs were trained on basic commands and were well taken care of. The owner even sent pictures of my dogs to keep me updated during there boarding, which made me feel even more comfortable. It was truly a pleasure working with the owner Jauvaurie and I will definitely board my dogs with him again.

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.

Kim is our go to dog sitter when we leave town! She provides amazing care to our two dogs! She sends us pictures and provides updates on how they are doing. She is wonderful especially with our one dog who is very active and anxious. We feel so confident that they are in great care when we leave, we don't stress! Our dogs are our "children" and we couldn't be happier with the care they get. Her home is welcoming, calm, and pet friendly! We love Kim!

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

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)

I use Tails to Scales for daily mid day walks, periodic evening walks when I'm working late and in-home dog sitting when I travel. My dog loves her walker and I know that she is in good hands.

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.

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.

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!

Shannon and her team were wonderful to work with! This was the first time we had ever hired a cat sitter for our cat. Our cat normally goes outside and inside everyday, however, their policy is to not let the cats out. I was hopeful that our kitty would cooperate with them, and he did! C-PUP provided an update on the status of our cat almost everyday. They even provided adorable images of him having fun and looking content. I would definitely hire them again!

Caroline is always there when I (my dogs and cats) need her, taking excellent care of them, reporting any problems to me as soon as she notices something, and taking care of my home, too! My dogs love her and absolutely go nuts for their "walkies"!
