Earlier this year we went on a short vacation, the first since we became homeowners, and for lack of forethought our only option was to board our cat for the 3.5 days we were gone. While she made it through okay, we couldn't help but think it would be less stress for everyone involved if we just let her stay at home and had someone check in on her, so we began shopping for pet sitters prior to our long vacation this fall. To give some context, we had certain criteria for a pet sitter. We didn't want someone who we couldn't trust to take the job seriously, and truly wanted to hire someone who does this primarily for a living. There's a measure of trust that goes into this - you're giving someone virtually unrestricted access to your home and hoping that they will take care of your beloved pet as you would. It's a tall order. We had quite a few respondents to our postings, and out of all of them we chose Helene after our initial meet and greet. The things that stood out to us the most were Helene's earnest interest in pet care, her depth of knowledge, and her bonded/insured practice. This is her profession, not just something to make some money on the side. Helene asked all the right questions of us up front, which is what we were looking for. I'm happy to say things couldn't have gone better! We left on vacation for 12 days this autumn and received daily updates via email to let us know that our cat was being well cared for. We asked Helene to stop by for half hour daily sessions, inclusive of feeding/maintenance/play, and it seems to have gone off without a hitch. It was really great to have one less thing to worry about, and they seemed to have gotten along very well. We will definitely be contacting Helene again in the future for any pet sitting needs and encourage anyone reading this to do so as well.
The pet sitters were understanding of our dogs individual needs. They also worked to meet our schedules.
Belinda is an excellent pet sitter. She has taken care of my 6 cats and one dog several times over the past year. I never worry when I go out of town and she is watching my pets. I come home to relaxed happy pets who look very well taken care off.
Angela was just what I was looking for in a dog sitter! I had no doubt Sonic was loved and cared for when I was gone and appreciated the updates she sent me throughout his stay. Her services and expertise gave me peace of mind so I could enjoy my vacation! She was also very flexible and fair
They were wonderful and understanding with my shy (and blind and hard of hearing) Cocker, and he was well taken care of while we were on vacation. He was so shy he was reluctant to go outside, which led to much more work than I ever expected! They texted regularly, and did a great job of letting me know how things were going. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for caring dog walkerss.
I cannot say enough great things about Dina. Dina is my first pet sitter and from the start she made me feel very comfortable. Dina makes sure to send text messages and pictures to let me know how my pets are doing. My dogs are not the easiest, and Dina has such compassion that within a day my dogs consider her part of the family (and so do we). I HIGHLY recommend Dina!!!!
Susan is an awesome pet sitter!!! She has been taking care of our cats for years. We never worry when we go out of town. Her veterinary experience is an added plus. If there ever is a problem, she will know what to do. You can tell she really cares about animals.
Sally looks forward to her visits from Brenda and Jennifer each week. 2Hearts2Paws are reliable, flexible and fun! They care about the pets they see and go the extra mile in the rain, sleet, snow or cold to make sure everyone is happy with tails waggin'!
Savannah comes to our house everyday of the week to let our dogs out to play. She has been an excellent pet sitter for our two dogs. She is reliable, trust worthy, and most of all great with our dogs. She leaves us a note everyday on how the visit went, she gives the dogs fresh water, treats, and lots of love. Scheduling has been easy and Savannah has been very flexible in helping us out when we worked late. She is a true professional when it comes to taking care of our dogs.
I was delighted with the pet sitter who came to my home during a short work trip! I was sent a text message after each visit and got a clear idea of how my pet was doing! I will definitely use this service again!
Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!
We have used Juli and her crew to take care of our cats for years. They do a great job and have even handle our one cats insulin injections. It is wonderful to go on vacation and not worry.
Sara watched my high-energy, high-strung Jack Russell rescue dog (Daisy Duke) twice this summer for two week-long vacations. She was recommended to me by a friend who has known Sara since middle school. I don't put my trust in many people, but Sara proved to be very deserving of it. Daisy was in great hands. Sara came and met with Daisy before the first in-house pet-sitting started. During the visit Sara played fetch with Daisy outside and the two got to know one another. During the pet-sitting week, Sara stayed overnight with Daisy and spent a lot of time playing with her. Daisy pees a lot, because she's a nervous dog, with some issues from her previous lilfe before we adopted her. Sara was patient and understanding. She also made sure Daisy was walked and exercised thoroughly. I HIGHLY recommend Sara. She's affordable, trust-worthy, and compassionate. I am a little doting, when it comes to my children (furry or human) and I appreciated the status texts from Sara letting me know how it went. After the visit I received a summary of how things went, whether Daisy ate well, and how much exercise and TLC she received. I loved this service. Sara also watered by small garden and I tipped her for that, since she did such a stellar job. What completely bowled me over was that Sara washed the bedding so that I didn't have to attend to the guest room, when I arrived home exhausted from our travels. Totally unexpected, but a really nice touch.
We have used Cats are Family Too twice now, for 10+ day periods of time, and both were great experiences! Aldona is very organized, thorough and trust worthy. Both of my cats (13 year old male and 1 year old female) LOVE her and are always calm and content when we return home. In previous experiences with other sitters, our kitties have been scared to come out and had accidents around the house. Not after Aldona visits though! She is also great about sending daily emails and pictures while we are away. Also, the litter is always swept and the house smells fresh. Your kitties will be in great hands with Cats are Family Too! :o)
Paula was absolutely phenomenal. I recently was working 12 hour days for 2 weeks straight and needed a dog walker to take my 2 dogs out twice a day. I hired Paula off of Thumbtack and wow I couldn't have asked for a nicer, incredibly reliable, and trustworthy dog walker. She passed along updates on the dogs and always kept me in the loop on the pups. She was very kind and very passionate about what she does. I would give her 10 stars if I could. Paula is definitely my go to dog walker from here on out and I passed out a couple of her cards to my neighbors with dogs. If you want a great dog walker, do yourself a favor and hire Paula!!
We have been using tailchasers since 2004, we have 2 cats and jamie comes out everytime to take care of them. she is terrific and i would highly recommend any one needing a pet sitter to call tailchasers. makes our life easier knowing that when we are out of town they are in very good hands.
Jenn is everything you could want in a pet sitter and more! My cat does not warm up to strangers whatsoever, that's why his name is Fraidy. Jenn did a great job with the usual stuff--feeding, cleaning the litter box and so on, but she truly EXCELLED in connecting and making friends with Fraidy. She is patient, kind and affectionate. She took the time to get to know him. I have never used a pet sitter before and was nervous about leaving my cat with a stranger and handing over the keys to my house. She put me at ease too. She gave me updates, texts, photos and even sent me a video to relieve my worries--without being intrusive or excessive. Jenn is caring, reliable and professional. She truly exceeded my expectations.
