I have hired Helene multiple times to care for my 4-year old tabby, Izzie, and one time she also cared for our bearded dragon. Helene is extremely diligent about taking notes during the interview process and asks detailed questions about things that I would never have thought about. I truly appreciate how she leaves a note every day about her interactions with our pets. It is nice to come home and see what the furry kids were doing in our absence. Additionally, if you request it, she will send a text message each day giving a brief overview of that day’s interaction. She (meaning Izzie) can be somewhat skittish when people come over, and I like that Helene will make a conscious effort to find her and play with her. She will even provide massages for your pets. In addition to pet-sitting, Helene will also bring in your mail, newspaper, and turn on and off lights. I appreciate her thoughtfulness. I also give her an A+ for reliability. During our last trip in early February, it was during all the snowstorms and bitter cold, and Helene still came out to see Izzie each day we were gone. As you know, cats can be fairly independent and not necessarily need everyday attention. I would have completely understood if Helene would have decided to stay home, but nope... she came out every day. I have no reservations in hiring Helene again for our pet-sitting needs. I think if you hire her, you will not be disappointed in the service(s) you will receive.

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!

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 has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.

Kathy was great and what she offered was piece of mind. This was my first experience with a pet sitter and I thought it went well. She sent me a short text after each visit and when I got home i found a daily log of activity. My puppy was well taken care of while I was away. I have already made arrangements to use her services again.

Mary and her husband helped us out in an emergency when our regular pet sitter couldn't take care of our dog. I would have no problem calling them again. Also, the reference they gave told me she would highly recommend them. Price was reasonable aso well.

Karen did a very good job making sure that my three parrots had their fresh food (perishable) in the mornings and that this food was removed each evening. I think the food bowls could have been scrubbed a bit more carefully, but overall the feeding situation went well. The cage bottoms with the poop seem to have been a challenge, however. We'll have to mutually work on a better solution for future pet-sitting.

The owner, Tracy, is fantastic! This was our 1st experience with leaving our dog and birds at home with a pet sitter! She was always in contact with us, sending updates and photos to ease our minds that things were well at home! And, when we got home, we had a day to day written updates waiting for us! She was, also, flexible with her schedule with us since we weren't sure when we would be returning home! Her prices were amazing! We expected to pay more that what she charged us! The photos attached were sent to us from Tracy!! Falcore Pet Sitting has us as permanent clients!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of our fur & feathered babies!!

Jay is extremely attentive to details. He takes time to study your personality and lifestyle and pairs you up with the dog that can fit into that personality and lifestyle. He is always available to help answer all my questions about the health of my dog and even other dog owners he has no relationship with. I have learned that when it comes to dogs, Jay is always right. My dog got missing one day due to my negligence, and he gave me steps on how I can make sure my dog finds her way home, and before and hour, my dog was barking in front of my door. Jay is an exceptional and professional dog whisperer and I would always recommend him.

I was desperate for a dog walker when my local high schoolers went off to college. Todd has been great. Wally, my kind of tough mixed breed shelter dog really likes him and Todd has never let me down.

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!
