Jerrie was a pet sitter for my chihuahua Milo for years. She also would even house sit for me, and take care of him and my home when I was out of town. She was so patient with him despite him taking a long time to warm up to new people, he bonded with her right away. Jerrie is so natural with animals and such a kind and caring person. She goes above and beyond to send you updates, pictures, and even keeps a detailed notebook about how your dog does each time she dog sits and what activities they do (walking, playing, feeding). I trusted her completely to care for my dog and would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, reliable and responsive pet sitter.
We have a 6 month old kitty that we left for the 1st time when we went on vacation. Multiple people bid on the job from the Thumbtrack post. After an exchange of emails we hired Christine even though hers was not the lowest bid. She responded to each quickly and directly. Christine then came to our house to meet us and our kitten. Like many cats, ours doesn't warm to strangers, but Christine made good progress. While gone she visited our cat twice a day. During each visit she would text us with a message about how and what our cat was up to. Most of the time she included a fun photo. It was reassuring and allowed us to better enjoy our vacation! Christine even vacuumed the loose litter up from around the box. A task we did not ask her to do but tells you a lot about her character. We will have her back and I recommend her to others without hesitation.
5-day overnight pet sit of our two cats and dog plus midday dog walks. Our pets loved Megan and her staff. We received daily text updates with photos so we could tell how happy they were. No pet accidents inside the house either. Everything was well taken care of and the house was nice and tidy when we got back. Good price and well worth it for the peace of mind knowing our home and pets were being looked after every night we were away.
I would absolutely recommend Carried Away Clean. 1.) They did a really thorough deep-cleaning of our newly purchased house before we moved in. You can trust they will get the job done in detail! I've hired cleaners in the past which ended up costing more money and being less satisfied. Carried Away Clean provided 100% satisfaction for a very reasonable price. 2.) Jessica is so good at communicating. Some services are hard to get a hold of or are difficult to receive a response back. Jessica was so good at communicating - calling me back and answering all of my questions. 3.) Jessica was incredibly flexible with me when I unexpectedly had to change the time/day of our cleaning appt. I really appreciated how she worked to fit me in as best as possible. 4.) I love the non-toxic cleaning supplies. I had a great experience with Carried Away Clean and would definitely recommended their cleaning services.
Outstanding! I used Pampered Pooch Dog Walking (not to be confused with Pampered Pooch Playground) for an in home 4 day/night stay for my chocolate lab.I was a bit hesitant because having someone live in the home without being present is a big step, for me! My big chocolate could not have been taken care of better as well as my home! Pooch even got his morning PB toast. It was all left better than I left it, including shoveling some snow! I love this place and have no doubt I will use them again. I only hope I can get all the sitting dates I need once the word gets around!
Mandy did an AMAZING job at assisting us with our border collie puppy. There were many things we had to learn about handling a border collie as well as what methods to use when things are not going in our favor. Mandy was very patient and understanding with us and did a fantastic job at getting our puppy to follow commands. We had so much to learn that she ended up staying at our house almost three hours to ensure we had things under control before she left. She had a variety of methods to use if we felt one way might not work for us (such as scaring our puppy into a better behavior versus hanging out around the kennel until our little one would calm down). You can tell she enjoys her job and is very knowledgeable. Honestly, I would recommend her to anyone with puppy training needs!
Punctuality is not relevant in the situation of an out of town trip. Nan kept in touch with us during our 2 week trip out of country. Our cat’s area where he eats & uses his litter box was well kept. She proved to be highly responsible. She also house sit for us.
Sarah has been walking my dog, Angus, over the past 2 years. My dog has always been very shy and nervous and Sarah has always been patient with him and he warmed up to her very quickly! When we run into her on our walks, he always runs right up and wants to say hi to her! She is extremely responsive and reliable when I need her to dog sit or take Angus on additional walks. Her prices are extremely reasonable, and she does such a great job. She always sends photos from the daily walk and I can tell she genuinely cares about the dogs. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of a walker!
Prompt, reliable and spent time with our cat over a 10 day trip.
I am over the moon with the quality of care I have received from Alex and Marea. They are professional, dependable, reliable and take great care with my three dogs. They feed and walk my dogs Mon-Fri.. transport them to daycare when requested and contact me with concerns or suggestions, which I greatly appreciate.. I could not ask for more. They are very kind, friendly and loving people.
Diana is faithful in walking my dogs and treats them as individuals. She loves dogs! Her husband is even a back up.
I provide loving quality care for your animal companions while you are on vacation or away on business. I am also available for house sitting. I have been walking dogs, providing litter maintenance, pet sitting and house sitting for 5 years now. I love animals and they love me back. I no longer walk dogs or do litter maintenance on a daily or weekly schedule. These days I am available for occasional or or short-term jobs.
I am available to watch over your home while you're out of town. I am courteous, honest, and simply looking to keep myself busy to help pay the bills. I have home renovation experience (I own apartments in the Twin Cities) and would be able to handle any mechanical or plumbing emergencies at your home if one should occur. I am willing to clean, water plants, wash clothes, turn lights on and off throughout the evening, etc. Just let me know what you need! Also, I'm good with computers, data analysis, financial planning, and home repairs. I hold a master's degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Well, while you are away from home like on a vacation or business trips, I'll stay at your house and clean it up and look after it. If you have pets, I'll watch them as well, and the pay will be delivered to me by cash. I can do it better than anyone you ever had.
I am a house and pet sitter in the Twin Cities area. Whether you need to get away for a long weekend or are traveling outside of the country, you can take comfort in knowing your lovable fur-babies are being given the love and affection they deserve and your home is being maintained to your standards.
I am available for sitting needs. I am responsible and reliable. I own a car and have a clean driving record. I have flexible schedule.
I have been working in a doggy daycare/boarding facility for 7 years. I get to know hundreds of dogs and their personalities, and care for their individual needs. I have five animals of my own, two dogs and three cats! With this experience helps me to understand the animals I care for and what they need.
I always take the time to address the animals by name, ask them how they are, pet the, and pay a lot of attention first thing.
I have experience with all breeds but specialize in bully breeds. I have been training service dogs for the past 3 years with which all dogs have been very successful.
I can house-sit. I was a live-in CNA/PCA for 4 and a half years. I do have recommendation from the family when I took care of their mother.
I am a high school graduate. I have dogs and have had other pets. I'm very caring, athletic, outdoorsy, and compassionate. I love animals, and I am looking to pet sit this summer before I leave for college to make some extra money!
