We went through a few other walkers before we found Lauren and Jason, and they are far and away the best out there! Friendly, well-organized, personal, well-trained, extremely responsive, and always available to take our little pup for walks. They also provide the best bang for the buck out there! We have even used them a few times for overnights. They pick up / drop off our pup, take her to their house and let her roam. We refer to it as "The Ranch" to our pup, and it might just be her favorite place! Jason and our dog are basically best friends, he always leaves us status reports of her walks and overnights. It is so refreshing to have such a personal service, as the other places and walkers we have used have seemed anything but that. This is key for trusting someone that has access to your home, but more importantly someone that takes care of your dog!
So far, we've been really impressed with Muddy Paws! This has been a delightful e per once from the onset. Jena responded to our initial inquiry within a couple hours of posting. It was a Friday, and we were somewhat desperate to set up dog walking services for Monday. Jena was so accommodating! She organized for one of the managers in our area, a primary dog walker, and a secondary/backup dog walker to do a meet and greet on Saturday afternoon with the intention of commencing services the following Monday. All 3 of them came to our house on Saturday afternoon to meet our newly adopted puppy and review her routine, our wishes for how everything would come together, etc. So far, we're a week into it and couldn't be happier! Our walker is great with our pup, and consistently shares detailed notes after each walk - sometimes pictures, too! She's even kind enough to bring in packages/mail for us - above and beyond! We can tell our puppy enjoys her time with her, and the quick relief breaks twice a day have been great for helping us with house training her since we both work in the city.
MacKenzie did a wonderful job. Not only did she care for our cats, but she left everything neat and clean and brought in our mail and packages. She also gave me text updates on how the cats were doing. I’ll definitely be using MacKenzie for all our pet sitting needs.
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!
I met Jess through my niece this past February. We had a last minute cat sitting need and Jess had experience cat sitting in her Jamaica Plain neighborhood. She was more than willing to relocate to Belmont for the week we were out of town; even though I suspect she had a longer commute to work than normal. Jess was extremely professional and personable from start to finish. We made a plan for Jess to visit our house and meet our cat the week before we left on vacation. Jess checked in when she said she would check in and arrived at the Alewife station on time. She was very thorough in our tour of the house. You could tell that she knew and loved cats from the questions she asked about food, play and routine. I knew I was leaving our cat in good hands. Jess knew that I was concerned about our cat settling in with her. She sent photos and a reassuring message early in our trip. When we got home, not only was the cat in fine form, but plants had been watered, her sheets laundered and the house left in good shape. I will definitely ask her to sit again next February. Regards, Bradley
I would very much recommend having Meri-Sue care for your pet! She truly set all of my worries at ease about leaving my "fur baby" for the week. I'm an overprotective Mom to a very spoiled kitty so saying this means a lot! Once you speak or meet with Meri-Sue, you will understand just how wonderful she is! Don't look any further for your pet sitting needs, contact On The Go Pet Services :)
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!
Deb watched my house and my beloved family members when I went to Thailand for 2 weeks!! I have 4 dogs ranging from five pounds to 65 pounds and she can handle them all like a pro! All four of my kids (dogs) love her. I recommend Deb's Doggy Daycare to anyone who is looking for someone to love their family member as they would while they are away. She also maintained my house and ensured everything was in order upon my return. She came to visit my home for a while to meet my dogs before she watched them to ensure they knew who she was before I left on my vacation. I utilize her services multiple times per week. She is awesome and a very friendly and trustworthy individual which is hard to come by these days. Once again, I highly recommend her services for house and pet sitting, she is the best!!!!
I do dog walking by the half hour or hour. I do individual walks for weekly rates. I do daytime or night time check in. I can do pet taxi. I can do house sitting.
I have been a Realtor in the Plymouth, Massachusetts area for 25 years. I have been in the house/pet sitting business for the past eight years or so. I have great respect for homes and pets and love what I do! I find that people would much rather keep their pets in their own homes rather than kennels when they travel, and that's where I come in. I can supply excellent references.
I am familiar with cats mostly. I have experience in feral and domestic cats. I enjoy their company. I have pet sat in the past for family and friends, as well as did house- or apartment sitting. I take other people's property and companions very seriously. One of my recent short books is titled "Feral Ways, Because it's Natural." It can be found on ACX (Audiobooks), Kindle (ebooks), and Createspace (soft cover). I have been working with cats for the past 20 or so years and have observed their behavior in the wild, as well as domestic felines and the similarities and differences between them.
They were awesome! They did a great job. I've never seen the house look so clean. They even clean the walls, steam clean floors. I've never seen anyone do such a though job dusting. Will definitely call again and recommend to everyone I know!
I am a college student looking for a summer job to keep me busy. I am willing to help out in any way that I can!
I do dog walking, loving, playing, feeding, and sitting; you name it. I have experience with elderly dogs, as well as being aware of dogs that have a medication routine.
Stephanie fed our cat, scooped his litter box, and sent us pictures. She gave him a clean food bowl at our request and even took the initiative to hand wash the old food bowl. We were very impressed and feel like we got a lot of value for our money! We would definitely use Stephanie's Sitting again and would recommend it to any cat owners in the area.
