I already rebooked! She was professional and also very friendly. It didn't feel awkward having someone in my home grooming my dog. She also included my curious three year old in the process! She left the bathroom cleaner than she found it. Highly recommend.

My pet sitter shared pictures with me daily and texted me after every visit. Such peace of mind for a pet parent!

This was the first time using a pet sitter service for my horses. How lucky was I to come across Wesley and Mellisa's pet sitting service on Thumbtack . They both came to my barn ahead of my weekend away to watch my routine of care . While I was away they kept track of the weather and came early and brought my horses in ahead of time one day due to an impending storm.When I returned my barn was immaculate ! I also received daily pictures of my girls , if you are looking for a pet sitting service that goes beyond just feeding your pets while your away , and you want peace of mind they are the ones to call . I look forward to have them take care of my horses in the future .

Stephanie is wonderful! She took the time to really get to know me and my cats, and she sends photos and updates every day. I have found my new go-to cat sitter and would recommend her to anyone!

Kathy did an amazing job - she is by far the best pet sitter we have ever had the pleasure to work with. I was a little nervous because we had just had a negative experience with a previous (unrelated) pet sitter at Christmas (she skipped some days and we came home to massive messes and a very sick cat), but Kathy was so the complete opposite of this previous sitter. She had no problem following specific instructions, despite some lengthy food/pill regimens, and she even texted pictures daily. She was only a text away and always responded promptly. She came daily for a week while we went on vacation, and gave meds and special food/supplement "concoction" to our elderly female cat, and made sure our younger male cat was happy too. Our cats were happy and healthy when we returned, and I KNOW we will be using her in the future!

Yvonne was awesome. I've never felt more comfortable leaving my house and cats with someone. She made sure she saw both cats each time she visited and sent me updates during the week plus a lot of extra things my other cat sitters didn't provide me. Very reliable and I would highly recommend her!

Brad is reliable. He watched my cat twice--a long weekend and a week. Maybe he was simply not a match for cat because she hid from him and only let him touch her once. (She sometimes takes a few minutes to warm up, but not days…) Brad is "nice," but he's not particularly communicative. If you'd like someone who will let you know how it's going with your pet and will keep your pet company for a few minutes each day, he might not be a good match. If you're just looking for feeding and litter changing, then he certainly did fine with that.

Karen is wonderful with my dog! Usually after the initial meet & greet I prefer to be at the first few visits until I know my dog and the pet sitter are comfortable with each other. But my dog took yo Karen immediately and I was able to skip that step very comfortably. My dog fell in love with her instantly, and he is usually a very cautious dog. And as dog lovers know, we can trust their instincts. Karen has been so flexible and goes above & beyond. I'm so grateful I found her!

I would highly recommend Deborah for pet sitting services. You can tell she loves her job and her furry clients. Deborah took such great care of my dog Dixie and my friends dog Murphy while we vacationed for a week. I don't think they wanted to come home. They were quite tuckered out upon their return. Thanks Deborah for treating our dogs like they were your own!

Katie dogsits for me when I go away on business trips or go into Boston for the weekend, and I could not recommend her more highly! She is caring and attentive to my dog; my dog gets so excited to see her. My dog is medium to high energy and Katie always tires her out. She is extremely knowledgable about dogs and dog behavior and has given me several tools to help keep my dog more mentally engaged and less stressed. Katie is punctual, she remembers all sorts of details about every dog, and she is my go-to whenever I need someone. Best dog sitter/walker in the Providence area!

Emily has been taking care of our "baby" Belle for the past few years. There is nothing better than going on vacation and feeling so comfortable that our home and our pets are well taken care of. She takes such good care of Belle, and I think Belle is sad when its us coming through the door and not Emily. She spoils them and the house is as clean as I left it. I highly recommend Emily to everyone and anyone that loves their pets and doesn't want to put them in a kennel while you vacation!

Kendra has been watching my dog Cooper for 5 years now. I can't think of enough good things to say about her!! It is such a relief to go on vacation and have her stay at our house. Not only does she give my dog excellent care, somehow my house is cleaner then when I left! On one particular trip as we were leaving my dog had a little cough, a couple of days later it got worse and Kendra took him to the vet, picked up medicine and made sure he was well. When we came home he was back to normal. Kendra is always reliable she has never once cancelled and has actually gone out of her way to help us out on last minute trips or emergencies. Most importantly is how much my dog loves her! I have recommended Kendra to many friends and all have been thrilled with her services.
