Krystie took great care of my 2 cats and always made sure to send me updates with photos which I appreciate. She was very accommodating and willing to stop by even on short notice. I definitely recommend her if you are looking for a reliable pet sitter.
Michael was professional, courteous, and responsible. I appreciated the care with which he looked after my two cats and my home, and would recommend him to others looking for a trusted in-home pet sitter.
(+) Suki fulfilled the expected tasks of a cat sitter -- providing food, filling the water bowl, and scooping the litter box. She sent daily photos. She was pretty quick to responding to my texts. Suki's rate/cost is affordable compared to other cat sitters, especially professionals (-) Although she sent daily photos, they were sometimes just blurry snaps of my cat's back. From the photos alone, it did not seem that Suki spent much time with him. Rather felt like she was merely showing me that she "checked in" to see my cat. I was disappointed to return home and see that the curtains were down when she said that she will make sure they are up.
Jen and her associates truly love pets. So many of the pet-sitters are solely focused on dogs. These guys really know and like cats, too. And my cats like them back.
Joyce is fantastic!! My husband and I had a three-month old wheaten terrier puppy when we hired Joyce. We were looking for help with potty training, basic obedience, leashing walking and helping our little guy become a part of our family. We cannot say enough positive things about what Joyce and her training methods have done for us. Our puppy was at ease immediately with Joyce and loves his training sessions. He has come leaps and bounds in his training using her easy to follow methods and improves after every session. After a few short months, he follows commands, is almost house broken and actually listens to us now! Joyce is professional, flexible with scheduling, kind, and very affectionate with our puppy. It's obvious how much she is a natural with animals. We also use Joyce for boarding when traveling. We are confident that our puppy is in safe, capable and loving hands when he spends time at Joyce's house with her (and Corcega!). She'll even send photos, videos and multiple daily calls and texts with updates for you, the individual service she provides for your pup is so much better than doggie daycare. If you are looking for a dog trainer, dog walker or a happy place for your dog when you're away on vacation, we highly recommend Joyce and her services to any dog owner.
Sarah watched my dogs for 10 days about a month ago. I have two dogs and work from home so they have beyond extreme separation anxiety, so I was very tentative to travel, but had to leave the country so taking my dogs with me was not an option. A close friend of mine recommended her to me and I tried it. I am so beyond grateful for Sarah and her services. She brought my dogs everywhere with her, fortunately she has a job allowing her to bring them to work with her, she brought them to local dog parks and even brought them to a dog bakery to pick out their own snacks and then stopped at PetSmart to let them pick out some new toys, much more than I would ever expect any petsitter to do. She kept me updated sending me at least two texts with pictures of my babies and responded to all my messages. My female dog, Madison, takes a while to warm up to people and can be snippy, Sarah had no issues at all with her and Madison trusted her within minutes of Sarah watching her. I returned home to a wonderful picture collage of my dogs "Vacation with Sarah" and them happily asleep in their beds snuggled with their new toys, I have Sarah routinely come take them on trips now as they love to leave the house and adventure with her, they always come home super happy and then sadly walk around for at least an hour after she leaves. I couldn't have found a better pet sitter if I had duplicated myself! She truly is amazing
Jill has a very positive attitude toward our two rather sensitive and wary dogs. Her loving and calming effect has our dogs waiting at her feet with wagging tails. They LOVE her after only one visit! Jill is a professional, kind, caring and honest person. We don't use pet sitters regularly -- it's those last-minute weekend vacations or times when we work late and need someone to come and care for them. She always makes herself available and ensures our dogs are not only fed and given fresh water, but that they get their regular, long walks. We are so lucky to have found Jill.
We love Prima Donna Pet Services! We have two large rescue dogs and have the utmost trust in Prima Donna's Pet Service. We rely on them to care for our beloved pets whenever we go away or just need a night out. In addition to the service being extremely reliable, we always know that our fur kids are cared by professionals with excellent judment, kind hearts and a love for animals. It's the only pet sitting service I have ever used that I know with 100% confidence that my dog kids will be cared for as well as if I were home.
Roe is extremely courteous, helpful, and professional as a pet sitter, house sitter, and home organizer!!! She has great integrity and is a true gem!!!
Ed has been invaluable to us and our new puppies. We work in Manhattan during the week, and simply can't make it back to NJ during the day, but Ed has been there every day we've needed him, making sure our puppies get the attention, water, exercise, etc. that they need, and he obviously cares about the puppies. He's also given us links to articles, advice, etc. on raising new puppies. I fully recommend Edz Pet Walking!
I could not have asked for better cat sitters! They are professional, kind and are very obviously real animal lovers. Because Jorge is a vet tech I felt comfortable leaving my sick cat with him for a few days and having him administer fluids and medicines. They have reasonable prices and I totally trusted them in my home. Both jorge and another employee even took it upon themselves to FaceTime me so I could say hi to my babies.
Because my dog is old and gets sick with the kennel cough shot, I had not been able to get her groomed. When I found Ray & Fay who will come to your house. My dog was so matted and overgrown hair. They did a wonderful job. Fay was so good with my dog, who hates grooming. She did as good a job as any groomer to whom I've taken my dog. It was an excellent experience
I am so happy to have found Amber she was great to work with, and she sent me texts after each visit checking in on my cat. I already booked two more jobs with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Valerie is by far the best dog sitter and dog walker I have found in the 15 years I've had my dog. She comes and feeds, walks and plays with him. I always know that he is well taken care of and she gives me peace of mind. There have been several times when I've needed her on an emergency basis and she has always found the time to come, even running to the house three or four times a day to take care of him. Valerie takes great pride in providing the best care of her clients. When I come home, there is always a note from her, telling me what he ate and how he did that day. She'll turn on the lights when it's getting dark out, close the shades if it's getting late. It's the extra touches, the small details that others would never think of that makes me worry-free when I have to leave my dog for long hours. She is so caring and he loves her. You cannot go wrong having Valerie come to care for your pet. She is punctual, loving and will communicate with you whenever you need it.
These guys are amazing! They truly care for the the dogs they service and really come through for last minute walks.
Stacey was our cat sitter while we left the city for our wedding. To keep us at ease while we were away she sent us videos and pictures of our two cats! We never had to worry about a thing. They were in such good spirits when we came home from our honeymoon and almost seemed to miss her! She has such a special way with animals and we would absolutely recommend her to any of our friends and will definitely call on her again.

I needed pet-sitting for 2 cats while out of town - I had a bad experience with a prior cat-sitter but Ana was great to work with. When I came home, the cats were happy & fed, there was clean water available & the litter was clean. I will definitely use this service again for my next trip!
Marilyn of London Dog Care was fantastic! After the regular pet sitter was unable to care for the pets, right before vacation, Marilyn responded, came to the house, met "The Crew ", and we were set. We 4 dogs- 1 small, and then 2 large Bully breeds, and a Cane Corso - all dog breeds that can intimidate by their presence. The dogs took to Marilyn immediately. I received updates whole on vacation, texts and photos, and I always felt at ease that my dogs were excellently taken care of. - When our plane was late coming back, Marilyn did an last minute emergency visit to the house on short notice! - I feel confident in recommending London Dog Care. Marilyn is one if very few people that has met my dogs, cared for them without hesitation inspite of their brutish looks. London Dog Care is my number 1 pet sitting service. Mimi Beaulieu
I could not be happier with Khalifa's Animal House -- and with Granesha -- for her work. After going through dog walkers, and being disappointed, I can finally feel comfortable and secure with the person who walks my dog. Not only did she insist on meeting my dog before walks began, a huge plus so that my anxious pup could get to know her afternoon handler, but she even brought her toys and treats to better engage her and get to know her. Since hiring her, I have received an email after each and every single walk describing how the dog went, where the two went, my dog's mood, and an added bonus of both videos and pictures. As someone who worries about her worrying dog, this always puts my mind at ease. Granesha, the founder, and my personal dog-walker, considers herself an animal advocate, and I agree 100%. I am so pleased with her services and would highly recommend.
Tanya is a pleasure to deal with on a regular basis to arrange my dog’s walks. Marilyn, who walks my dog, is a doll. She is like a member of the family now. On the occasion that my dog spent 2 nights at Tanya’s house he was well looked after, and I got pictures and updates from Tanya. It is such a relief having Tanya and Marilyn looking after my pets!
