This is the first time having Lap Dogs and Cat Pet Sitting take care of our dogs. We feel Lisa and her husband handled our dogs wonderfully. We have 2 dogs, 1 old and 1 very temperamental. They took great care of our dogs for 7 days. Lisa was very good about keeping us informed on how our dogs were doing, and we were so pleased and grateful she sent us pictures and videos of our beloved doggies everyday! Honestly, we believe they went above and beyond, in that they kept our home clean, picked up any dog droppings, and took in our mail, even though we said it wasn't necessary. Some other pet sitters charge extra for some additional services, wherein Lap Dogs and Cats Pet Sitting did not. They are definitely priced well compared to others in the area. Also, thought we would be home earlier and told Lisa to skip her bedtime visit but that we'd tell if she had to come after all. Since Lisa is so caring, she asked if I didn't mind texting her when we did arrive home so that she'd know all was well and wouldn't worry. Lisa and her husband took the time to make us feel comfortable about hiring them. We also were happy to hear that they are loving pet parents themselves to at least triple the amount of dogs than we have, and all rescues! To us this means they have good souls and do this more because they love and care about animals than for the money. Also, we told them to be careful with our temperamental dog and it was okay if they didn't pay too much attention to her--just to feed her, make sure she had water and let her out. But again, they went above and beyond by being extremely patient with her, spending extra time with her in gaining her trust to to the point she allowed them to pet her and show her love and affection. For these reasons, we feel all the more confidant and happy with our choice and will most definitely hire Lisa at Lap Dogs again whenever we need a pet sitter. Thank you for helping us find them!

Kelly is a fantastic dog sitter. There are not many people I trust to care for and follow specific directions I have with my dogs. Being able to count on Kelly has been a blessing and a huge relief when I have to go away. Wish all pet sitters were like her but they are definitely not. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and has a real passion for what she does. I know my guys are getting plenty of attention and love while I'm gone, they seem to be on vacation too. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter. You won't be disappointed and neither will your dog.

Allison has worked long and hard at completing dog training and proper certification and registration for dogs that she helped with breeding and taking care of. I met her through thumbtack for a two week long position. She made sure the dogs that were born from my pups were absolutely nurtured and cared for to ensure good health for the dogs overall. She cared for 4 of them and treated them like part of the family even before and after the pups had sold she still maintained a genuine interest in taking care of them. She Always walked and included the puppies most of the time that she was able to. Her services will not be in vein and it is worth your time to take her on as a future dog sitter. She will surely prove beneficial to you if you are willing to give her an opportunity.

I was introduced to Jeff Coltenback by a friend via facebook. I had just rescued Woody, a beautiful American Bulldog (aprx.1.5 yrs old) from the Maricopa Animal Shelter in Mesa AZ and, lets just say, he was in need of some training ;) Jeff came with great reviews via my friend and I felt great to have been put in contact with someone of his caliber. I reached out and called Jeff, explained that I recused the dog I had always wanted but I had no experience with dogs of his size and energy level. Woodrow is 110 pounds, all muscle, white with a brindle patch on his head the perfect shape of a heart. He's the best dog you could ever want but at that time he needed training. We set a time and date and Jeff came to my home which was about an hour and a half away from him and he and I and Woody spent the entire afternoon together, showed me proper training tecniques that worked great and we discused everything from training to proper diet. Jeff was really knowledgable and extremely helpful. As we were talking, I mentioned that I had just lost my best friend, my Aunt Carol, a few months earlier and I was not handling it well and reverting to using street drugs to numb the pain. Jeff immediately said, ''lets go to an NA meeting right now'' He called his wife, asked her to handle the appointments he had later that day and we went to the closest na meeting we could find and followed it up with a lil Surf Taco. Jeff got me involved in the NA program and for that I am forever grateful. I'll always remember that. Since then I have called on Jeff for help with others dogs and he is always right there to help. Jeff is a skilled dog handeler with an obvious big heart and true love for what he does. Great guy.

I hired Brandy at the last minute to take care of my new dog, Jackson. During our screening before hiring Brandy, she took the time to bond with Jackson and even taught me a couple of things about dog training. My dog is very timid, but Brandy was able to utilize her skills to help him overcome his fears. Brandy is patient and conscientious. She would call or text each time she arrived and left my home. I would not hesitate to use her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone needing a dog walking service. Donnamarie S. Manassas, VA

    My husband and I recently just moved to the Wilmington, NC area and had to leave town for 10 days and were extremely nervous about leaving our 2 dogs - a 190 lb Great Dane and. 6 lb. Yorkie - with someone new. After meeting Kate in person, I was immediately assured that they would be in very good hands. She kept a log of each time she came to the house and what all she did while she was there and would send me nightly photos of the dogs so that we knew they were doing well. I will be using Kate again next time we are out of town and would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a pet sitter!

Labor Day Weekend, Kat got very sick, they took such good care of her, arranged for the Vet to see her, took her to the vet , by the time we picked her up on Tuesday, she was well on her way to being well. Kat can be a bit of a nervous nellie too, they know how to take care of her, monitor her because, they live on the premises. Thank you Jane and Michelle for taking such good care of our Kat.
