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.
Jackie is responsive and wonderful with my dogs. She keeps me updated on how they are doing. I would highly recommend her for dog walking. She has been a blessing for our family and our dogs.
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.
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!
Working with with Pawfect Dog Training was an amazing experience. We adopted a new puppy from the shelter and wanted to crate train her, so she would be comfortable in her crate when we were not home. Matthew did a great job training our dog to go into the crate on her own and feel comfortable in there. More importantly he helped teach us the right way to train her and taught us how to keep up with that training to get positive results. After only a few weeks of working with Pawfect and keeping up with our training at home, our puppy had no problem going in her crate on her own. Now she is so comfortable with her crate that she will go relax in there even when we are home! I definitely recommend anybody to work with Pawfect Dog Training to help train their dogs!
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'!
Savvy pet sitting is a wonderful service for your four legged friend. She does what she says she is going to do, very satisfied!
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.
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!
We just started utilizing crazy paws for our new puppy during the day. Tiaya is very knowledgeable and flexible. She has really put us at ease and we have loved working with her!
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!
Tiaya has been the most accommodating and wonderful person to work with. They are there any time my schedule changes and are always willing to shift things around to ensure that my puppy is taken care of. Definitely recommend using Crazy Pawz for all of your pet needs.
This was my first time using a pet sitting service so I was naturally nervous about the whole process. I was basically giving a stranger unsupervised access to my home and dog. Fortunately, Sara was great about everything. A few days before my trip, she came to meet me and finalize Gizmo's care requirements. From the beginning, Sara was excellent about giving me status updates. I would receive a detailed email with a report on Gizmo (with pictures!) twice a day. It was extremely comforting to know that it was business as usual for Gizmo. She spent her days chasing squirrels, eating grass and trying to get someone to play fetch with her. Gizmo had the unfortunate luck of getting injured while playing. Sara quickly notified me that she thought Gizmo was favoring one leg to put weight on. We agreed that it was best for a vet to see Gizmo. Sara coordinated the appointment and made the vet visit in short order. Sara was fantastic about Gizmo's meds and after care. I couldn't have asked for a better caretaker. When I came back from my trip, I was happy to see that my dog was happy and that my house was in the same condition I left it in. I am definitely requesting her services again whenever I leave town. I recommend Sara's Compassionate Pet Care wholeheartedly!!
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!
I'd tried just about everything to get my terrier to behave to no avail. But after just a couple of sessions with Monica I saw a huge improvement and now I have the most well behaved dog on my block. Highly recommended!
I am just starting out in the pet sitting industry. I took my Pet Tech First Aid and CPR Certification class from Randa at Tailchasers Incorported. It was very thorough and informative. I feel that I certainly got the best training available. Thanks Tailchasers!
Leo and Loni are the first furry babies I have ever had (I was allergic to lots of things, including many animals, when I was younger). So finding someone to look after my little ones when I am traveling was an important decision for me. When I reached out to Modern Pet, Israel explained to me the process and he came for a visit to introduce himself in person and meet L and L. It was clear to me that he and Kris (who I met later) love animals and the work they do. I happily recommend their services without reservation. The pets that we choose to bring into our home become family for many of us and it is a nice source of comfort to know that Modern Pet is there to look after my little family when I am traveling. - Keith
She was a tremendous help. She came in today, evaluated my dog and gave me lots of helpful hints. She is highly recommended.
