Pet Sitting

I’m really happy that I found TrulyPawsome on Thumbtack. Claire and Mady are great. They helped us with booking a pet sitting appointment on their app for the first time. The app is really fantastic and makes it very convenient to book and track services. The pet sitter that we worked with was Natalie. She’s awesome and very good with pets. Both our cats loved her. I definitely recommend Trullypawsome.

Pet Sitting

This is a great pet sitting service! They have friendly, reliable staff with good communication. This was our first time using Truly Pawesome but will definitely use them again. Claire was great to work with, and when a staffing issue came up, it was promptly resolved. They use an app to let you know the details of the pet sitting visits, which includes lots of pictures and videos. It was nice to see my cats getting pet and played with as well as the regular food/water/litter. As part of their service, they also get your mail and take out the trash, which was a big help to us while on vacation.

They take excellent care of my dog Lucy and truly shows genuine affection for her. I love seeing the little videos and photos I get after each walk. This is a great company that you can count on for excellent service and care of your pet.

Pet Sitting

We went away for two nights - the first time leaving our two ragdoll kittens and we were a bit nervous. Truly Pawesome set us at ease right from the beginning by saying that they would treat our babies as if they were their own - and they did! Our kittens were well taken care of and the pet sitter was in touch each time she was at our house. She followed all of our instructions and sent us pictures - which we definitely appreciated. If you need to leave your fur babies - I'd highly recommend leaving them in the capable and caring hands of Truly Pawesome!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our pricing depends on location and number of pets. There is a one time fee of $25 to process all paperwork for new clients. We do charge extra for certain services such as yard waste pick-up, special meals cooked, medication given and last minute bookings. There is an extra fee for all major Holidays. Please visit our website for complete details on our rates and cancellation policies. We prefer to look at the type of pets, weight, size and services to ascertain what exactly is entailed to achieve the best end results for our clients. This allows us to give the best possible price to our clients and never have to add extra costs at the end.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    **Free Initial Consultation with signup ONLY*** Truly Pawesome offers FREE in person consultations if you schedule pet sitting service dates at the time of the consultation. We require you to deposit $25 to our account Cashapp amount ($TrulyPawesome) before the meet and greet. If you don’t schedule pet sitting service at the time of the consultation or cancel the service that you had scheduled, the one time $25 consultation fee will be nonrefundable for the pre-service interview. But if you sign up we either give it back or put it toward your service. At the initial consultation we will have you fill out paperwork pertaining to your info, we meet you and your pets, gather all information relevant for the visits, a vet release form and our contract and discuss your needs and those of your pet. All prospective clients must provide two sets of house keys at the time of the initial consultation. One set of keys will remain with your pet's caregiver and the other will be secured at our office. If keys are not provided at the initial consultation, a $10 administrative fee will apply to accommodate their retrieval at a later date. Please double check any new keys to be certain they are working. We enjoy meeting our customers face to face and LISTENING to them. What do they need done? What deadlines exist? We hope to convey to them that we are a trustworthy company and have their best interests in mind at all times.
