Carol did a great job sitting for my two cats. It's clear that she loves animals and takes pride in the services she provides. I will use Carol again as a pet sitter.

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.

I am so glad that I found Sara. She is my new go-to dog sitter! I took my dog over to her home and she was immediately at ease, running around in the fenced back yard. Sara watched my dog for three days and did great. Sara was able to give her space separated from her other dogs, which I had requested because my dog is sometimes skittish. When I picked my dog up, she was calm and happy, which is not usually the case (usually seems freaked out when I go away). I think Sara really put her at ease. I look forward to having Sara dog sit for me again!

We have had numerous pet sitters over the years for all of our wonderful cats! Hands down, Hillary, whom we recently chose for the 1st time, is one of the nicest, most professional, and caring pet loving sitters you could ever hope to find, starting with our first conversation to her final visit for our very shy Sophia. We shall definitely hire her again, and you should not hesitate to trust this lovely lady with your furry "family" members too! Thanks so much, Lyn & Mike, Z... West Chester, PA

Peggy takes great care of my cat whenever I travel. I always come home to a clean house, and a very happy pussycat. She is very conscientious, she even waters my plants, rotates the lights, and brings in my mail. She keeps the litter box clean as a whistle, so I never have a problem with my cat doing its business elsewhere due to a dirty litter box. She takes the time to snuggle and brush my cat as well, which my cat really loves. I never worry when I know that Peggy is taking care of things for me, and I always come home to a happy, well adjusted pussycat. I highly recommend her as a trustworthy and conscientious pet sitter who goes above and beyond the call of duty. I have also entrusted her with taking care of my Grandson, Jayden since his birth to date (he is now 3.5 years old) and once again, she goes above and beyond the call of duty. I trust her completely...

Liz was a great help when I needed to find a cat sitter on short notice during a holiday week. She has a lot of experience taking care of pets so she knows exactly what questions to ask. She even sent me pictures of my cat, Melanie, to put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Liz for any pet sitting needs.

Having Bertie sit with my animals for the first time, I was nervous. I have a horse, two goats, two barn cats, and two greyhounds. My nerves were relieved when she texted me the first morning away and said BOTH dogs slept in bed with her! She stayed with them day and night all week!!! Now I was nervous they wouldn't be happy for me to come home! 😃 She even washed the sheets and towels on her last day. And cleaned up the muddy paw prints, and left the place looking and smelling great. I have already asked her to come and pet sit again.

Lisa is just so wonderful with my little pup! I have used a few different dog sitters, and Lisa is by far the most attentive and loving with my dog. Lola comes home happy and calm, so I know she is getting the attention and care I want for her while I am gone. Lisa is the best.

I have been hauling my horse to Cabaline Farm for a couple of years. I learn something new, or at least am reminded of something I've forgotten, with every lesson! Very nice arena with good footing and mirrors on one end.

I love the fact that you can see in Michele's face that she loves animals. She treats them as f they were her own and is very loving and kind to them. My little chichi cries when I go to bed without her. Michele said it would be fine with her if my little girl slept with her and would actually like it. I've had many pet sitters but she by far is the best ever and I highly recommend her. My dogs love her too and are happy and healthy when I pick them up.

I've been at Crescendo for more than 16 months. Originally, it was to learn to ride horses, having no previous riding experience. I've stayed because Kriss Phelps, the owner, has a passion for horses. I now own and board a horse there and have continued to advance my riding - western pleasure and western dressage - and am also learning carriage driving. My horse is also in training at Crescendo. Kriss Phelps is an exceptional trainer. She's very patient with new riders, regardless of age, yet has the skills and knowledge to teach advanced levels of riding as well. Her passion for horses and riding shows in everything she does, from her own personal riding skills in traditional and western dressage, to how well trained her lesson horses and how well run the boarding stables are. The other staff at Crescendo are awesome as well. I would recommend this stable to any rider or driver, new or advanced, and to anyone looking for a great place to board and train their horse.

Donna is professional, punctual, attentive and absolutely wonderful with my pups! They immediately bonded with her and she with them! She took great care of them while I went on a business trip, and administered their meds as directed. Donna also kept in communication with me, providing updates and even sent me a pic of my pups with hearts which was totally awesome! I highly recommend Donna Perona as a dog sitter! 🐶🐶

Carol is an excellent pet sitter. She cares for my cat as if he was her own. She pays attention to detail in my cats moods, manners, eating habits and health. I get calls and messages if something comes up & a full report after I have returned home from my trips. My cat loves her!

AMAZING!!!! I cannot even tell you how much I have learned at the Book Family Farm!!!! I was riding for a good 5 or 6 years before I came to the farm and I still learned about dressage, jumping, equitation, western games, trail riding, training and teaching!! Mrs. Book gave me the opportunity to train some of her horses for her and through that I learned what I was truely capable of!!! I grew as a rider and person!! It became a family for me!! I also learned about general care of horses and vet care through owners of horses that had injuries, even though the horse had an injury it was still amazing to see how the vet was able to help the horse overcome its injury!! I also have been able to ride many different horses with very different personalities!! I also was able to buy my first horse from Mrs. Book, I had been training him for a year and a half and I decided I wanted to buy him and take him to college and she had no use for him so i was able to work out a deal with her!!! Mrs. Book gives all her students great instruction from dressage and jumping to western games and trail riding!!! It is an amazing place to be!!!!

I simply cannot recommend Once Upon a Dog Tail enough!! Cara and her team are fantastic- detail oriented, thorough, really care about their clients (the dogs!) and their owners and they clearly love what they do! From our initial meeting, it was clear they wanted to know everything they could do to help our dogs feel comfortable and well cared for while we went away for the week. Two different pet-sitters split the time away and by the time we got home, my house looked cleaner than when I left! I especially enjoyed the daily updates and pictures that were emailed to me. Once Upon a Dog Tail truly pays attention to every little detail and takes phenomenal care of the pets they watch. It is so nice to use a business that goes above and beyond! Thank you Cara for all you did for us! We (and the dogs! ) can hardly wait for the next time we can use your services again.
