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.
I needed someone to watch my cat while I went home for Spring Break. Dee did an amazing job for a great price and I felt completely comfortable leaving my baby in her hands. She is now my go-to pet sitter. Highly recommended!
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!)
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!
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)
We had a wonderful experience with Thumbtack and Shatiya. Our longtime pet-sitters left town. We gave the website a try and quickly made the connection to Petstigious. We liked the team's experience, and rates were competitive. The initial meeting was helpful, and we felt confident while we were gone. It was fun and adorable to get pictures and updates. We know the cats were happy and well taken care of. Thank you so much! Until next time, Stacia and Brian (+B & B)
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)
My scheduled cat-sitter canceled at the last minute. I found Happy Paws through Thumbtack. We quickly scheduled a meet the cat session. Angela was great, she had just the right person in mind to watch the cat. Liz was here every day, brought in the mail, cleaned the kitty litter, and played with Lucky each time she visited. She sent me notes every day. Lucky was a happy kitty while we were away. I will hire Happy Paws the next time I need someone to watch my cat.
I had two senior Yorkies and one had special needs. Their pet sitter always provided professional and exceptional services. She would always provide care that met their individual needs and thus provided reassurance to working pet parents.
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.
Crissy is awesome!! We have had her as a pet sitter for four years. She does a fantastic job not only caring for our dogs and cats, but our farm animals too! I would highly recommend her services!!
Lullaby Pet Sitters took good care of my bruiser!! I was hesitant at first to let a pet sitting company look after my pup but 10/10 I definitely reccomend it was like i never left ! They treat your dog and you like their own !
Outstanding pet sitter, patient, reliable, and very accommodating. My kitties got all the care and attention they needed, I highly recommend.
Very respectful and stellar pet-sitter! My dogs had a great time with her when I was out of town. She sent pictures of playtime and even dress-up time! It was really comforting to know that Rebecca was caring for my dogs while I was away- I never once worried about my pets or my home. She has a really big heart for dogs and is very patient and energetic with them.
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!
Caroline came through for us when we needed to find a pet sitter fast for our cat Luke as we were going out of town for business. Thanks !
Prompt, professional, and courteous. Natalie had more experience taking care of my cat than myself. She even administered medication to him for each day that I was gone and sent me messages everyday on how he was doing. She's my new go-to pet-sitter from now on!
We met Mary and Bil at our house to talk about taking care of our cats.We found both of them very friendly and knowledgeable about cat care.They have cats themselves so we had no problem hiring them to take care of our pets.We feel very good about our decision and that our cats will be well taken care for.
