We have a daily dog walk, as well as they cover our house sitting and pet sitting over the holidays and sometimes in the summer if we travel. It's a great service, they truly love the animals and we love having them in our home. We know that things will be taken care of at our place while we are away! Use YBFDH for all your pet care needs!

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.

Christy has been excellent! She knows what she is talking about and I see improvement in our shelter dog. She really cares about your pet, is easy to get a hold of and is dependable/reliable. Don't hesitate to give her a try for your training or pet sitting needs.

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!!!!

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.

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.

Susanne is a cat whisperer: even my shy 14 yr old fur baby came out to get petted by her. She sent pictures and updated us daily so we could enjoy our vacation. Our house was in tip top shape when we came home. Great pet sitting service!

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!!

I've been very happy with Patty's Pet Service. She walks my dog during the weekdays and always leaves a note about the visit. She also responds very quickly if you text/call her. I just moved to the area and my dog is still very nervous about the new environment (much more traffic and close to a train track). Patty is a great mid-day break to help my dog become more comfortable outside and of course, go to bathroom.

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.

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.

Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!

John takes care of my two cats - Pete and George - very regularly. My fiancé and I have very erratic work schedules and do not get a lot of notice before we need to travel. John has been so flexible with us, and seems to really enjoy his time with our boys! He even sends me pictures and texts updates! I think his rates are very reasonable, and he's worth the peace of mind if you have a pet who needs some attention while you're away!
