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.
Millie was great! They cleaned our 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in just under two hours. My dog was at ease with them as well which was a big concern of mine since he's afraid of everyone. He warmed right of to them as they are big dog lovers. This was very comforting!
Belinda provided excellent care for our dog. Our dog, being a rescue dog, required specialized care in which she delivered; this included having patience, providing lots of attention, and staying overnight. All of which she did all eagerly. Belinda came to our house on a couple different occasions so our dog could become familiar with her. She even brought our Pebbles a new toy and treats! She maintained communication with us while we were away, providing updates and sending pictures. While it was difficult to leave our dog (specially being new to this state) I did find comfort knowing she and our house were being well cared for. Belinda is truly a sweet and caring person to owners and their pets as well as honest and responsible. We will definitely be using her services again:)! Thank you Belinda! We greatly appreciate all you have done for us!
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.
Dina took great care of our dog when we were out of town. She provided overnight care for our Ellie and visits during the day. We had piece of mind knowing that Dina was with our dog. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a caring, responsible pet sitter who loves dogs.
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.
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!
Anna used to clean our house every week in England and I was always impressed with results. I have 3 dogs and a cat so there was always a lot of work. She's energetic and well organized, I would recommend her for anyone who values both job well done and personality, she's nice and reliable.
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!
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.
Fantastic pet sitter, was able to create a bond with our VERY picky cat. Always sends us updates at the start and end of the visits. I know our cats are in good hands and that she won't hesitate to contact us if there are questions.
Emily is a naturally gifted, highly responsible and enthusiastically caring pet caregiver. She is dedicated to our dog, and our dog lights up around her. We have never seen our dog as happy as she is with Emily. Emily will spend extra time with our dog, consistently going above and beyond to provide excellent care and unforgettable service.
Sue is amazing to work with. My Toby loves her and do I. Having sue come to the house each day has made Toby a better dog. She works with him when I can't, gives him the exercise he needs while playing with him. Sue also helped me introduce a second dog to my home, She worked with me and the two boys to ease them into a relationship. She is always there and I know that Toby is getting as much love and care from her as he does from me. Thanks a million Sue!!!!
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 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.
Kris and Israel made it a simple process from start to finish. They certainly know what they're doing and made it an easy choice for me to hire them to walk my dog on a regular basis.
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.
