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.

Lauren and Krystie have been amazing. Both are really sweet and very professional. I never had a dog walker before so naturally I was afraid in the beginning but they've been so great, that I now can go to work, knowing my dog is in good hands.

Michael is nothing short of perfect! I contacted Michael just a day before leaving and he was very willing to take on the job. I was slow to responding, but he was very flexible and understanding. I woke up every morning with daily updates sent by Michael. He sent videos and photos each time. He gave a summary of what happened each visit, which I appreciated so much. I was in a different time zone, but Michael was always prompt in responding to my texts and we were in contact the entire time. My cat is very very shy so he hid under the bed whenever Michael visited. Michael tried various methods to make my cat feel more comfortable so that he can eventually warm up to Michael. With my previous cat sitters, I was constantly worried because they would only send blurry photos of my cat without giving proper updates. With Michael, I was able to enjoy my vacation because I knew my cat was in good hands. I was immediately able to tell that he is very dedicated trustworthy. He even managed to show up on the day of the snow storm, even when I told him that it was not necessary. After my trip, I returned to a clean apartment and a happy cat. Michael is by far the best cat sitter I’ve had, and I’ve had many! I will definitely hire him again!

With less than 24 hours to find a cat sitter, Michael's prompt reply was the best thing that I could have wished for! He strikes the perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism, and does not hesitate to go out of his way to meet his clients's needs. Upon my return, I found my cat, Stella, very content and happy. Her litter box was clean, her water was fresh, and I could tell that he had fed her per my instructions. His visits were between 1 and 2+ hours long, and what I really loved was that he spent time watching TV and relaxing next to Stella. Having company like that is just what Stella needs. I would recommend Michael to anyone looking for a conscientious, responsible, kind, and caring sitter for their pet! Completely unexpected bonus: I received a short video from him each time he visited.

Michael deserves the cat sitters' Purple Heart for scratches suffered giving our cat Thelonious 4 to 5 oral medications a day for homeopathic treatment of lymphoma while my wife was away. Our cat does everything to avoid medication but Michael was cool under fire as he picked up the cat from his hiding places and was very professional in delivering the medication. He was affable and relaxed under extremely difficult conditions. I hope his next cat sitting job goes easier.

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.

Jenn was amazing!! This was our first experience with a Cat Sitter and we were a bit nervous being our first trip away after getting out little cat. However, once we met Jenn and saw her great attention to detail as well as love for animals, we were reassured and were able to enjoy our time away. Jenn will be our first and only cat sitter moving forward and we can't recommend her highly enough!!!

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

We are a household with very long work hours and frequent travel and having a reliable walker and sitter is really key for us. Sarah has been so accommodating and wonderful to our sweet rescue pup Sophie. After recently moving to the area, we originally found another business on Yelp that ended up really mistreating Sophie e.g. left her for hours alone in her crate. So it's such a relief to have found Sarah after that experience and to know our pup is in great hands when we're away. It's really just priceless. Sarah is our go to daily walker and we look forward to her frequent texts with updates from the walk. She's also been very flexible with last minute changes in our schedule including overnight boarding in our home. We really can't recommend her enough and feel she's a very dependable caregiver and excellent communicator.

I have been so happy with Danielle and Kyle! They have done wonders with my two rescue pups. The pups started out with 2 weekend stays when I was out of town and now they are doing day care. Danielle and Kyle are hands on and constantly "redirecting" from bad behaviour and encouraging good behaviour. After a day of play and training at Mind of Dog my pups come back happy and relaxed. I would highly recommend Mind of Dog. They provide personal and caring experience and I think they could handle any type of dog.

Danielle and Kyle are knowledgeable and passionate for the work they do. They are responsible and keep their word in terms of commitment. Beyond that they have an amazing way with animals. Our pup is calmer, better behaved and much easier to walk and live with since he has been going to doggy daycare and walked by Kyle. They send me regular updates and pictures. I truly appreciate their expertise, honesty and advice. Highly recommended.

Danielle was available for a last minute booking and has since taken over as my preferred sitter when I'm away. I not only returned to a cleaner house than I've ever had, but I also returned to two happy boys. Danielle is an incredible trainer, caretaker, and a sweet person. Definitely a top pick for any situation and not just rambunctious pit mixes like mine.

Ed has been checking in on our new puppy almost every day for a while now and we've felt really comfortable with him. He provides us with daily feedback through text message so we always know how our pup is doing and if we should expect any surprises upon our return home. He's been great confirming the schedule in advance as well as being available last minute when our schedule has changed unexpectedly. I would highly recommend Ed for your dog walking needs.

We are so fortunate to have Ed come walk our puppy during the week. Ed is very reliable and easy to get in touch with. Sometimes I will text Ed during the day to see how my puppy is doing that day. Ed responds very quickly and makes me feel at ease knowing that my puppy is in great hands. I would definitely recommend Ed to anyone that is need of a dog walker.

There are not enough words in the English language to describe how amazing Roe is. She extremely committed and passionate about her job. She was able to get my sick four-month-old golden retriever his medicine that I couldn't get him to take. She is very experienced and provides your pet with the best possible care. My puppy fell in love with her instantly and was sad to her go. I couldn't imagine leaving my puppy with anyone but Roe. She texted me pictures with updates regularly, made me feel even more comfortable leaving my puppy. She was very flexible and able to dog walk/sit around my difficult schedule. Don't think twice before hiring her. You won't find a more capable pet sitter! instagram.com/oreostail

Roe is awesome! The best cat sitter I have ever had!!! My babies love her! She is affordable and flexible. She cared for my diabetic cat and we were able to work out a deal where she came and gave him his shots twice a day AND spent the night with them. They weren't even a bit traumatized by my absence this time! Roe genuinely loves animals and even helped me solve a litter box issue. I have used cat sitters for over 20 years and Roe is, hands down, the absolute best!

Having never used a pet sitting service before, I was very concerned about my cats being taken care of during my vacation. I posted my pet sitting job on Thumbtack and Kira of Animal Allies Pet Service was the first qualified person to respond. Kira provided references that I could contact for referrals. The references said nothing but great things about Kira. Kira patiently answered my many questions via email and we set up a time for a meet-n-greet with the cats at my apartment. She arrived on time. We talked for awhile and then went over their care routine. I gave Kira my house keys and I left the next morning knowing that I had a great person taking care of my cats. While I was away, Kira took care of my cats, watered my plants, got my mail and provided me with a daily update on my cats including pics via her client portal. I felt comfortable leaving my cats with her just knowing her extensive animal care background and training. I highly recommend considering Kira if you need a pet sitter. I will use Kira's pet sitting services again when I travel. Great experience. Thank you for everything Kira.

Always on time. Cheerful, bright & full of energy. Carla has worked twice with our 9 week puppy. Amazing results. As most puppies will do, ours was teething and chewing on almost anything. Immediate results. After the first session the puppy would come on command, sit and look you in the eyes for a reward. Second session worked on "leave it", focus and kennel. Dog gets it. She is remarkable gentle yet commanding with the dog and her philosophy is that the dog has to learn who is master and who is follower. There is no doubt that the investment with Carla with yield years of pleasant interactions with the dog.

I have worked with several dog trainers in the past and Ms. Fukumori is by far the most capable. She is direct and quietly assertive. Her methods are straight forward and our dog immediately responded to her authority. Several days later our mutt is a changed dog, much more manageable. Highly recommend her.

I was new to hiring cat sitters when I first met Bill but ever since our first encounter, he has proven to be nothing but trustworthy, warm and nurturing to me and my furry family. When he looked after my terminally ill cat, I was so worried that he wouldn't be able to get him to take his daily pills. But, everyday, Bill patiently sat with Moose until he took every pill and by the end of my vacation he was a pro at administering them. That kind of persistence shows his dedication and concern for the animals he cares for. But what I appreciate most is the daily updates I get about my household and the status of my cats (daily photos, how much they're eating, energy level at each visit, a recap of how much they played, notes on concerning behavior, etc). It's also comforting knowing that my apartment is also being watched when I'm away. On my most recent trip, I apparently didn't close my refrigerator door completely and Bill found my fridge open and the contents warm. He closed the fridge and notified me immediately and prevented a potential disaster. He also waters my plants, cleans the litter boxes and cleans up after my cats with their frequent hairballs and normal day to day kitty messes. He truly is a life saver and my piece of mind when I'm forced to leave my cats behind. I don't know what I would do without him and there is no one else I'd trust with the keys to my home. If you want someone who will provide excellent service as if he were taking care of his own pets in his own home, then William Lewis is the only one I'd recommend.

Bill has been a great cat sitter, and is very reliable! He understands our concern for our pets while we are away, and sends us daily pictures of the kitties and he tells us how they are doing. He keeps them well fed and ensures that they have plenty of water and a clean litter box, but he also takes the time to play with the kitties, pet them, and comfort them. I can tell that Bill really cares about the animals that he provides care for, and we really trust him with our kitties! I would whole-heartedly recommend Bill to anyone looking for a cat sitter or a dog walker! We are happy to have him take care of our pets when we are away.

I met Bill while he was actually walking a dog around the block from me! Turned out to be a great find .... he ended up helping me out with my elderly dog. He would come on days when I needed someone to not only walk her, but give her medicine as well. Having a senior dog you worry about finding competent people to rely on and Bill was there for us 100%. Gracie really trusted him which helped as well. He was here with us on her last day saying good-bye just like he was an “old friend”. I would and have recommended Bill to anyone who needs a dog walker and more!

Betty's my go-to dog sitter!! I would recommend her to everyone! She helped me with my two poodles for a weekend and often walks them for me while I am away. My dogs adore her so much and are always relaxed and happy around her (to the point I think they prefer her more than me sometimes). She even brought my attention to subtle, twitchy leg movement that my older poodle was making during a walk with Betty- which helped me get appropriate treatment for her from vet. Betty makes my dogs feel comfortable- Most importantly, she treats them as if they are her own- She's a true animal lover-!

Stacey has watched my two French Bulldogs many times, even after they both had a surgery. I know I can count on her to take wonderful care of them. She has stayed in my home multiple times and not only left in better condition then when I left it but trust that she can take care of any pet watching/walking needs no matter what your pets needs are. She is loving and caring and trustworthy. There is no one else I would rather watch my doggies, you'll be sad if you hire anyone else. She has been and will always be my first choice to watch my pets. Not to mention my dogs run to her anytime they see her, we love Stacey!

Over the Christmas holiday I had to travel out of town. I hated leaving my kitty but after meeting Stacey, I knew she was in good hands. She fed her, gave her the medications she needed, replaced her water, cleaned the box and played with her each day! In addition to great care and play time, she also sent me pictures so I could see how happy and content my cat was even with me being away. I will certainly be requesting Stacey's service again in the near future and recommend if you need a let sitter you can trust who will love on your pets while you are away, to look no further!!

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.

Sarah has cared for our cat, Black Jack, on numerous occasions, sometimes for up to three weeks. The first thing I'd say is that I never have to worry about the care he's getting when I'm away. He's always well-fed and content, his litter is always clean, and Sarah spends time petting and playing with him. Over the years, Sarah has also cared for our other cats who required medication and special attention and she has proved herself adept and diligent. Sarah was caring for Black Jack and our other cat, Lola, when Lola passed away. I cannot begin to describe how caring and thoughtful she was, both to Lola and to us. She is a young woman who clearly loves animals and knows how to take excellent care of them. Both my husband and I feel lucky to have such a conscientious and caring pet sitter.

Natasha has been a lifesaver for me. Its so great to be able to schedule a walk and a visit for my dog, Benji, on days I have to work late or go out of town. So much easier then dropping him off at a boarding center. Benji gets to enjoy the comfort of his own home, without all the unnecessary stress that boarding causes. Natasha goes above and beyond too! So much more love for my guy than he would get in a “prison cell” at a boarding center. I know Natasha treats him with as much love as possible and that is vital for me to know when I already feel so guilty for leaving him. Gives me great peace of mind and I would recommend her services to anyone! Very affordable as well. - Jasmine D.

Since day one, Natasha has always been an awesome dog walker for my little one. She shows genuine care and goes above and beyond to ensure my pet is taken care of. Furthermore, she always makes herself available which is a very valuable quality with things that come up in our daily lives. Natasha has been taking care of my dog for a little over a year now and I hope to continue utilizing her services for many more. I highly recommend Natasha to anyone who is not only looking for just a regular dog sitter/walker, but an individual who believes in attention to detail and will create a strong bond between herself and your pet which will last a lifetime.
