She was very friendly and did a great lions cut on my finiky cat
Well there really isn't enough nice things to say about John. I have a chihuahua named Penelope who needed a little direction and John was just the person.. (I think he was smitten by her :)... So he came the day i called him and was planning to stay 45 min.. well almost 3 hours later and a ton of information and useful tools he left us with home work. Four days later he returns and 2 1/2 hours later he leaves us again with lots of great info and confidence to help us help our pup. I highly recommend John.. He comes well prepared with a clicker and treats and loads of advice. He is there because he wants to help not to make a buck.. That's hard to find these days. Penelope is doing great with her training.. Its a work in progress with her not attacking my cat but with patience and positive reinforcement she will soon stop. Looking forward to our final lesson in outside training. Thank you John...
Nikki, helped our 20 year old cat who was a complete mat. Nikki did a wonderful job and took great care. Thanks Nikki!
Very well mannered and very comfortable to be around. If anyone is looking for a dog trainer/sitter/walker then she is your lady.
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
Joan was very responsive and professional. She provided excellent references. She had no problem medicating one of my cats. The 2 cats looked great upon our return, as did our house. Not the cheapest cat sitting service, but very professional and I had peace of mind.

I always ask Krystal to watch my dogs and cats when my husband and I are out of town. She's the best ever! My dogs are so attached to her that when they hear her car coming they start going ballistic! She's always great with them, really kind and affectionate while being firm and authoritative. Ideal balance, I'd recommend her to anyone needing pet care services!!
I needed a cat sitter for the holidays, and Yvonne responded quickly to my request. She came over to my house, met my cat, and we worked out the details, which included giving daily meds. When I got back, I was greeted by a happy cat instead of the grumpy one I usually return home to ;-) Yvonne kept detailed notes of her visits in a little notebook, which was a nice added touch. Thanks Yvonne - I'll definitely hire you next time I'm out of town!
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.
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.
Karen was wonderful with my very skittish cat. It did not take long for him to warm up to her. I will be more than happy to continue using her service and feel that my cat is comfortable and well cared for.
Cristina is great with our dog Bear - he is so excited to see her every time she comes to pick him up. We also really appreciate that she shares pictures of their daily walks. She's a true animal lover!
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 was super helpful and always responded to my messages/calls. Was VERY accommodating to some last minute changes we made to the plans. We will definitely be calling her again to look after our kitties!
I've known Shivaun for over 5 years. She helped me with my mom and subsequently my pets. She is very conscientious and excellent with pets. I also use her other services and I'm very pleased.
Emily is extremely personable. My dogs love all the attention they get. She is responsible and very respectful. Her rates are super too! Emily goes the extra mile. I will definitely use her services again. Molly
Erin is super nice and accommodating. She was able to watch my dog with just a day's notice and took great care of her!
