Lori was absolutely wonderful! We contacted her pretty last minute to dog sit our 6 dogs for a week. Not only did she happily take on that challenge, but she also offered other cleaning and organizing. services which we took her up on. It was sooo nice to come home to a clean, organized house with happy dogs! My closet has never looked so great!!! Very highly recommend Lori!
Penny is an amazing pet sitter. She is reliable and responsive to my emails. She loves animals very much and I feel 100% confident that my cats are well cared for while we are away. Finding a good pet sitter can be challenging, you have to find someone who loves and cares for your animals as much as you do. I know that I have found that person in Penny.
I want to start off by saying that our pets are not just our kids, but our only kids. This means that we are very picky pet owners. We have several pets with various needs such as meal, potty, and medication schedules. When we realized we were going to need pet sitters we were very worried about making sure the household would remain stable and not show any disruptions. Anyone with lots of pets knows that when they aren't happy, they will make sure you know. That means cleaning up messes! Kathy has been a lifesaver for us! She has kept to the schedule, is always on-time, and ensures everyone is happy. That also includes us, the nervous pet parents. Kathy sends regular updates to let us know how things are going at home. Even our very nervous old lady (our geriatric shepherd mix) has become friendly and comfortable with Kathy! Butch and Kathy are both very committed to the comfort and well being of the pets they care for. When we get home our pets are calm and happy and we have yet to find any messes to tell us otherwise. We honestly don't know what we would do without B and K!
I am the owner of a very energetic Black Labrador. I knew that I had a dog with high energy and needed professional help with training my puppy. I found Martha Bernal through a friend at work who was happy with her dog training. Martha guided my puppy through ten sessions of puppy training (basic puppy obedience). I was very pleased with her obvious love of dogs and immediate results with each lesson. Martha has a gentle, effective approach to training dogs and my dog responded very well to her training sessions. The end result for me was that my Labrador became a lot more easy to manage because he understood the commands (requests) that I made such as "Come" "Sit" "Stay" "Leave it" and he also stopped jumping up on people. I enjoyed seeing my dog learn and am very happy with the dog training that Martha provided to my dog. He remembers everything she taught him and it makes our family happy to have a well trained big dog. I would recommend her highly to anyone considering a dog trainer.
Truly an exceptional service.My "kids" loved her special daily care . Really a special pet sitter.
My wife and I trust Erica implicitly. She did an absolutely superb job of watching and caring for our two cats--one of which is diabetic and requires twice-per-day insulin injections--while we were away. She has a life-long heart for animals and is a certified veterinary technician. She's prompt, reliable, and trustworthy, and she has a wonderful caring way with animals of all types . . . especially cats and dogs. We'd definitely rely on her again to care for our cats and we highly recommend her PetNurse 411 service. John & BJ
Joshua is a caring young man who together with his mother took good care of our 3 little dogs in his home when an emergency called me out of town. Upon return, I found them in excellent health. Improvements? He originally told me that he would contact me frequently with photos and updates, via email or text messages, but I received only one contact in the week, perhaps due to a busy schedule. His corner location on a busy street is off-putting, but he does have a secure fence around the play-yard, and part of the front yard, surrounding the front door. Be sure to have your pet well secured with a harness or kennel when bringing, just for safety's sake, until you are inside the fenced area.
Sue was great to work with and immediately put our minds at ease from the first phone call. We are currently vacationing in the Bradenton area for the month of January and required a dog sitter during a day trip to Miami. Sue responded to our request on Thumbtack and the rest is history. She took great care of our Miniature Schnauzer while we were away for the day. He was walked, fed and given lots of love and attention. The photos and texts with updates was reassuring and a real bonus. We would highly recommend Sue and would definitely reach out to her again if we need a dog sitter in the future.
If you are looking for someone who is professional and will provide second-to-none quality care, Teresa is for you! She will provide excellent care for your family member, and has the highest level of professionalism while in your home. My dogs love her! Please contact her today, you won't be disappointed!
Thank goodness I found Kendra! She was a pleasure to work with during her stay at my home with my (7) cuddly but irresponsible dogs. She always showed up when she said she would and always communicated with me daily and sent pictures of my babies. A truly lovely lady to work with! Kendra will always be my "go-to" pet sitter, I hope she is always willing to take us on too!! A genuine pleasure to work with. Thank you so VERY much Kendra (hugs).
She is very responsible & goes above & beyond the average pet sitter. I have happy dogs when I come home which is priceless!
Martee always goes above and beyond when she cares for our 3 pups. They love her so much and we have total peace of mind when we're gone. It's wonderful to have her not only watch the dogs but also housesit. We plan trips every 2-3 months and Martee is always on time, handles emergencies with ease, communicates often with us while we're gone. We always come home to a spotless home and happy pups. She's the best!!
Esme did an excellent job grooming my two cats in my home! She was nothing but kind and caring of my petrified, very anxious cats. She somehow put them at ease and it was so great to see the care and the pride she puts in her work! She did an amazing job with them! Also, She was very responsive and reliable and kept me posted ever since the moment I decided to schedule with her! We will definitely be calling her to return again!!! Thank God we found her!!! My Persian Kitties are now mat-free and look so happy with their new haircuts! Thank you, Esme!!!😻😻
Paula is an amazing sitter, she is great with animals and it's a wonderful feeling knowing your pets will be cared for while you are away from home. She kitty sits for us and we couldn't ask a better sitter. I highly recommend her. She genuinely loves all animals and that's reassuring.
We took our pet to Cheyenne and her family for a "trial run overnight" before leaving her next week for several days. The visit went very well. Our dog came home happy, stressfree and exhausted. She loved playing with Cheyenne and her family and pets. Highly recommend.
This is a respectable and compassionate professional pet caretaker. Eleanor "Cookie" provides the specific care I need for my diabetic cat, Ikee. He needs insulin twice a day and Cookie did not hesitate, where other pet sitters did. That, to me, is the difference between a sitter and a professional caregiver. Your pet family is in excellent hands with her!
Vanessa has been our pet's dog sitter for over the past 2 years. She is a professional. Always prompt in response to our requested dates, flexible with our schedules and provides personalized pictures of our pets during their stay. Mo and Max always come home happy. I would recommend her dog sitting /home care service.
I like working with V.I.C. because the pet sitters are professional and genuinely care about the work they do. My dog loves her sitter (Gabby) and I love that Gabby keeps me updated about how things were each day. We use a notebook to write to one another. The huge benefit of using a service like this is the dependability of always knowing someone will be there to walk my dog. I don't need to scramble for alternatives if something comes up.
Allison is the best pet sitter I have ever had. She is very professional, compassionate and caring. She loves animals and puts them at ease within moments. My fur babies love Allison.
Laura is fantastic. I just got a new puppy and need someone to check in on her while I'm at work. She takes the puppy and my other pup for a mid day walk which really helps burn off their excess energy. When I went out of town on vacation, I knew the pups and my cat were in great hands. My cat, Lilo, is very picky but he loves Laura. Her pricing is very fair and my pets absolutely love her and that helps me when I'm away from them. I recommend Laura for your pet sitting and dog walking needs.
Caroline did exceptional work with an aggressive shelter dog that had potential but needed to relax around people and other dogs. It worked: Athena was adopted about 6 months ago and is settled and happy in a wonderful forever home where she's cared for, loved and appreciated.
