Pet Sitting

Laura has been great with our two dogs. She quickly bonded and became Nana Laura. She’s very good with our girls and loves them like her own.

Pet Sitting

She has an overall energy that is superb! She is everything yippy want in a professional as far as organized and well scheduled with excellent notes on all your pets but she has a caring quality that cannot be taught, it was just a vibe I was looking for, a quality when she came in my home that she felt like family, she is real and honest and truly loves your pets and cares about tour family and its needs. You know immediately you don't have to worry about your critters or your home when your away! All of my animals immediately loved her and I have some large dogs who can be stand offish at first and they took right to her, that tells me all I need to know their instincts are better than mine! She can handle big and crazy with love and firmness which is what I need she is a perfect balance for what critters need!

Dog Walking

Laura clearly has a way with dogs - my female can be tough on strangers but took to Laura right away! I'm looking forward to engaging her again.

We feel very fortunate to have met Laura. She is a passionate pet lover. Laura is dependable, trustworthy and has a very strong work ethic. She has been our pet sitter for the past year and we've used her for visits and walks as well as overnight stays. She works well with both cats and dogs~ and we have a very active German Shepherd and a dual cat household (indoor kitties). When we lost our miniature schnauzer this past week; Laura came by to say goodbye since she and Jack had bonded and she was very concerned. Laura goes above and beyond~ you won't be disappointed!

Pet Sitting

Our experience was unsettling and disappointing. Laura was unkind to our puppy. I would not recommend her as someone to petsit.
Shiloh Sit (Laura Keistler)'s reply
I'm sorry you feel that way. What you interpreted as"unkindness" was actually extreme physical pain and frustration, not directed to your pup but the situation. I have bone spurs and calcium deposits in my left shoulder. At the end of the day it is excruciating. I could could not physically pick him up or I would have. To respond to your complaint of left in crates to long. I had another client scheduled for 2 visits on Saturday. There was a wreck on I-77 and it was completely closed. My 20 minute commute turned into a hour and a half. So I was in gridlock traffic for 6 hours that day. Worrying the entire time about your pups in the crates! Best regards, Laura Keistler Shiloh Sit

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

    I like to schedule a pre-visit with owner and pet in their home for several reasons. It gives me a baseline for the pets behavior in his environment and interactions with people. It allows me to start building a trusting relationship with the pet that reduces anxiety. I like to go through the dogs daily routine in detail with the owner i.e. diet, medical history, medications, current Veterinary office, signals or cues, exercise tolerance, potty schedule. Also I want the owner to get to know me and be able to give them the confidence of knowing their pet is well cared for in their absence and they will return to a happy and relaxed pet.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    A lifetime of experience owning,caring for and loving horses, dogs and cats. The study of animal psychology wild and domestic.
