Helene stayed with my kitty for 8 days while we were out of town. She did all the small tasks I asked of her around the house; and more importantly, she was wonderful with my cat. He likes lots of attention and she gave it to him. When I came home, I found a happy, well cared for cat. I have already booked Helene for two more lengthy cat sits and would definitely recommend her. She really takes her job seriously and she loves animals.

We hired Paloma for housecleaning. So impressed, we will definitely hire her again, for this and possibly other household help in the future (pet sitting or domestic projects). She is professional, friendly and an excellent communicator from initial hiring to the completion of the work. She came prepared for the work, asked questions and was so helpful. Thank you, Paloma!

Belinda is amazing!!! She does a wonderful job with both our dogs! She's even made them peanut butter puppy cookies. She gives us daily updates after her visit and sends photos. She even started training our one pup to sit before crossing the street! She is reliable, professional, trustworthy and a genuine lover of animals. Belinda is the best!

Wow! After pretty extensive searching for a professional and trustworthy pet sitter for my new cat, I chose to hire Lainey after reading all of her wonderful reviews. She is so friendly and I felt comfortable giving the keys to my apartment to her after meeting her just once. Since I've been on vacation I've received pictures of my cat every day which definitely eases my anxiety about how she's doing while I'm away. She texts me every day to tell me she's been to visit my kitty, so I know she's being taken care of. She did ask as well if I'd like pictures and daily updates and also asked what time I'd like her to visit while I'm gone. I love that she's considerate of different preferences that everyone might have! Overall, she has made my vacation so much less stressful and I'm so glad I found her. She's definitely going to be my go-to in the future for any of my pet sitting needs!

Jackie took care of our dog, cat, and rabbit when we were out of town. She was very professional during our first meeting and left a report of how the pet sitting went. We look forward to using Muttsley's again.

We are so lucky to have found Stephanie as a trusted caretaker for our 2 dogs. They absolutely adore her. We have used her several times for dog sitting in our home while we are out of town. It's so nice to be able to relax knowing our boys are in good, loving hands . She is very responsive & professional. I would highly recommend using Stephanie for reliable care for your pups!

I cannot say enough positive things about Shauna and Furry Hooligans. She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful in her service and genuinely cares about my fur babies. I have an elderly dog with severe arthritis. Shauna comes every day while I am at work to walk him. It's difficult for him to move and she is very caring and patient with him. Recently, I was called out of town and Shauna pet sat for my animals (my dog and cat). She was very caring and thorough. She even sent me pictures of my animals so that I knew they were happy. What I appreciated most about Furry Hooligans is how much Shauna genuinely cares for my animals. I highly recommend her service.

Michelle groomed my 15-year-old dog, who suffered from arthritis and had bad back legs. Brownie had medium-long hair that shed like crazy and hadn't been professionally washed or brushed for years. After 90 minutes, she emerged from Michelle's van looking clean and sleek. I've recommended her service to my pet-sitting customers. It was a little pricey, but you get convenience (especially for dogs averse to car rides) and a groomer with a lot of experience and knowledge.

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!

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.

I’ve used TS&N several times. I often work long hours and sometimes travel. She’s taken very good care of Pauline since she was a kitten and she’s a very gentle, patient kitty sitter. You can tell she LOVES cats!

Jeanne has been watching our dog for 7 years! She does a great job and is very accomodating, especially with last minute schedule changes sue to the airlines! Our dog loves to go to Jeanne's, and we can relax in knowing that our dog is being well-cared for and getting all the attention that she needs!

Four Paws Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver to me and my husband. We both work very sporadic hours and they have been very accommodating to help get our dogs out on long days. My dog can be challenging at times but both Denise and staff are experienced working with animals. I trust them fully!

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.

Katie is a very sweet woman that I can tell loves cats. Her kitten Sophie was a delightful and playful little pal to my Senior cat, Charlie. If you want your cat to be loved as much as she loves Sophie then you should totally choose her next time you need a cat sitter. Kathy

    I have very shy cats (one on a few medications) and was worried about leaving them for a week, but Mama Bear Greer was able to win them over. Each day I received pictures and updates, and was relieved to see how quickly my girls warmed up. I came home to find two very relaxed and contented kitties, which made me very happy. My older girl got all her meds and was in good shape when I got home. I will definitely use Mama Bear Pet Care for my next trip!

      I love dogs, but I don't want to have one of my own now as 'my dog' is currently living in California. So, I am currently happy and fulfilled by getting to spend several hours with yours!
