My husband and I were thrilled with Stef's professionalism and genuine love of animals. This being our first time using a pet service, we weren't sure what to expect. She took great care of our cat who looked well and was very happy when we arrived home from our trip. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caring and responsible pet sitter in the DMV. Best regards, Nikki & Oliver
Having quality care for the pet that I love so very much, required much research and someone who genuinely cares about my loved one. After looking for quite some time for a local pet sitter, I was blessed to have found Walking with Renzo & Ruby! My dog and I were one of the lucky ones that got the Renzo & Ruby experience! Their amazing owner Natasha is top notch and is very accomodating. She met all the needs that I asked for and more! Natasha welcomed us to a break the ice session. Mink and I were invited over to meet Renzo & Ruby to help with my dogs socialization skills, this helped with Mink's aprehesion she sometimes has with other dogs. Natasha offered the in home care and drop by visits if I needed it. I was assured that my dog would do fine in her home or mine because Renzo & Ruby were very good about sharing their space! Mink's nervousness diminished as she warmed up to Natasha and the introduction to her babies Renzo & Ruby, prior to her stay! I was elated and impressed at the attentiveness being displayed. While on vacation, Natasha sent the cutest pictures of Mink on the ride over and while warming up to her dogs! I will definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for superior care for their pet/s. Thank you Natasha! Alindia
Donna Andrews has done an excellent job looking after our dear cat. She has a genuine love for cats, founded in long experience, and will make a point of getting to know and appreciate the individual personality of any cat she cares for. Donna prepared conscientiously for her responsibilities with our cat, was meticulous in following all care instructions in letter and spirit, communicated regularly and fully about how things were going from day to day, and left a detailed written summary. We returned to find our cat doing beautifully well, happier after being in her care than with any of 3 other previous cat-sitters. Highly recommended.
This company has been horrible. The first assigned sitter canceled for personal reasons. Fine, life happens. Not a big deal. Second sitter comes, she seems fearful of big dogs. Third assigned sitter has been M.I.A. She is supposed to be at my house watching my dogs right now. The company's response is "we don't have a status update right now. " Why am I paying almost 90.00 per night ?!?
Barking Trails has been excellent to work with so far. Their rates are outstanding, and their responsiveness is on point. I was really hesitant at first to have someone in my house while I am not there, but the dog walker they sent has put my mind at ease! She texts me before arriving, sends me photos of the dogs every day, and texts me again once she leaves the house. (Not to mention that my dogs love her!)
Oh my goodness, Jenny was the best, and affordable compared to DC area dog sitters. She had Pet Vet Background, so she's on top of everything, especially if your dog has meds. Sounds as if she was totally on top of walks and such. I will be using her again for our dog Daisy, hoping she doesn't become super popular from this positive review and others' reviews. I asked her if she would want to.watch my Teens too! (ha ha)
Kim is very professional and sweet, she took care of my kitty cat and chinchilla while we were away for our wedding. I have an incredibly needy cat but he wasn't super desperate when we got home so I could tell he had enough attention. We then used Kim to check on the house and chinchilla while away for our honeymoon. I usually worry a lot about my animals and can get a bit anxious but she was very understanding and I felt relieved to have her with them. I left my cat at a friend's house for our honeymoon but I think if we go on another long trip I will just ask Kim to come back. She has even brought in packages for us and made an extra stop to turn off my ridiculous house alarm so the beeping noise wouldn't bother my chinchilla. Highly recommend. (Oh and she is one of the only pet sitters we have had who isn't scared of the chinchilla. I can tell she is a real animal lover)
Clare Owings was just wonderful. Something that I found extremely valuable was that she listened to my situation very well so she gave me pointers and suggestions taking into consideration my lifestyle. My 9-month-old dog has learned so much just after two sessions with her. She is excellent with dogs and, maybe more importantly, with dog owners. She knew how to "handle" my dog and me pretty well. I appreciated her coming not only to my house but also to the dog park and to places where I walk with my dog. I really recommend her!
They pet sit for my cat sassy. The sitter was a polite student from GW, my sassy fell in love with her and I feel very comfortable with her sitting with my cat while I'm away.
Bertie is a great dog sitter. We have two dogs who adore her and always seem relaxed and calm when we return. She is completely reliable and trustworthy, and takes care of regular house maintenance as required. We intend to continue using her as our first choice dog sitter!
Gerard does a most excellent job taking care of my cat army in my house when I am away. He spends a good deal of time playing and socializing with them, cleaning up after them and feeding them exactly as requested. I receive daily texted updates, photos and videos of the status of my furry children. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an in house cat sitter.
I had Rose take care of my dog Rocco for one week. Rose kept me informed on a daily basis and was an outstanding pet sitter for my dog. She took pictures and videos with her and Rocco playing. I felt very comfortable and I knew Rose could get the job done at 110%. I would definitely recommend Rose for any type of pet sitting.
Outstanding pet sitter, patient, reliable, and very accommodating. My kitties got all the care and attention they needed, I highly recommend.
House and dog sitting / walking for two weeks - Sherri did an excellent job
Jane took care of our FIVE little fur-bearing family members while we were away for a week. She is by far the best pet-sitter we have ever had! She started with an initial meeting in our home, which was incredibly thorough. It's clear she has a real love for and understanding of dogs, and real skill handling behavioral issues with pets. It's also clear now that we've had her support that the full range of services she offers is delivered with the same gentle, insightful, and steady care that every pet owner wants for their four-legged loved ones. She also retrieved our mail and made sure the house was safe while we were away--a real bonus! Jane provides daily written updates, which were incredibly helpful (she also identified an issue with our bathroom ceiling that would have taken us a few days to notice after we came back). She even found our shy guy, Skinner, every day, even though he is very good at hiding from strangers! We returned home to a happy, snuggly, healthy menagerie that had been expertly cared for. It was such a comfort knowing we had reliable, thoughtful care while we were away. We'll definitely reach out to Jane again the next time we're out of town. Strong endorsements from both of us humans and our furry five-some!
I had a great cat sitter who interacted well with my cats, provided daily reports, answered all of my questions and offered great suggestions for managing some of their eating behaviors.
Denise is an Outstanding Pet Sitter. My dogs loved her and were very happy to be in her care. I would highly recommend Denise.
Anne is fabulous. She is dependable and super flexible with our schedule. I would highly recommend Anne for all your pet sitting needs. Our fur baby LOVES Anne. She is always so happy to see her which makes us feel great. Anne has also taken care of her when we were away. It gives us such a peace of mind knowing our girl is so well taken cared of. Anne is great. She is loving, sweet and loves the animals that are in her care. She is our go to person and we love having her take care of our precious girl. You will not go wrong with Anne.
I moved to the area last year and was really nervous about finding a new pet sitter for my cat who has medical needs. I was really pleased when I met Jennifer and Nick and am happy to have them care for my cat whenever I am out of town. Most of my trips are a couple of weeks and I know my cat will be well taken care of and I will receive regular updates on how he is doing.

No contracts! We meet, you tell me what you need, and I'll do it! I've been a pet sitter for many years, and I am a very trustworthy person. You never need to worry about your pets when you've hired me. I offer daily walks for your dog lasting approximately half an hour for $15.00 a day.

I mainly babysit other people's pets when needed. Preferably dogs. I am a highly educated individual.
