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 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.
(+) 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.
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.
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!
One of the best horse trainers and teachers around. Kara has the patience and observational skills that make for excellence.
Each one of us has our own levels of satisfaction and I can say that mine is at the top with Seaton stables and that if I am to scale it from 1-10 and 10 being the highest, mine would be a 10. Im very hard to please and I barely express my appreciation towards someone. But this time, I feel the need to speak up and share my experience with Seaton Hackney Stables because of the negative reviews here. I think that its really unfair to them because theyre really doing a great job. The volunteers and instructors work hard to make every visitors or riders experience an awesome one. I can say that they take good care of the horses because the horses are very healthy and energetic. They deserve to be complimented not criticized. Ive recommended Seaton Hackney Stables to friends and relatives and they thanked me for telling them about this awesome place. Like me and my family, they had a wonderful experience at the stables. Keep up the good work, Seaton Stables!
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.
Wonderful sitter! Frequent updates from her during our vacation and we felt secure knowing our cats were well looked after.
I needed a pet sitter because my husband was hospitalized out of town. We're retired and my animals (2 dogs and a cat) are used to having us around all the time. I was anxious about boarding them and I interviewed several sitters. Mark asked all the right questions and even asked if he could give them a treat! That sold me. His rates were very reasonable. He was available with very little notice. He even accommodated me when I needed him for more time than initially agreed upon. The best part was that my dogs were very happy after spending the day with him. I had piece of mind and was guilt free.
Don't look any further! Peggy is just brilliant! Not only a great pet sitter but a lovely person. I have had many pet sitters in the past and I didn't know this kind of service was possible, she provides daily updates and cute pictures while we are away, she buys Rosita (a tiny chichi) yummy treats and gives her tons of love. She is so responsible, sweet, experienced (she has a big bunch of rescue pets herself) and caring that my dog misses her and of course she stops by once in a while to pet her and let her know she is still around. We feel very lucky to have her in our lives! :-)
Diane has been excellent. I needed someone who can handle an older scared difficult dog. She has always been on time and is very sweet?
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.
Tammy is unquestioningly a wonderful pet sitter. We have left our two elderly Nichols in her care for two weeks on occasion, and we returned to happy and healthy dogs. Tammy , in addition is a delightful person who is absolutely lovely to deal with. We sing the highest praises on her behalf.
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.
I was going on a 7 day cruise and did not want to leave Jet, my black, short hair cat/fur kid, in a kennel..he does not do well in new surroundings..I found Nature Nanny Pet Service through a friend's referral, and after interviewing Lisa, left for my cruise. Was I pleasantly surprised when the first day away from Jet, as I logged on to place a vacation notice to my email account (forgot to do so prior to leaving) to see an email from Lisa describing Jet's first day without me..all the love and grooming he was getting and there was even a picture of him too. I knew then, that I had made the right choice in pet sitter. My cruise was smooth sailing from that moment on, with daily emails from Lisa and Jet. The 7 days went by so quickly, but as a first time cruiser, it was just enough. I was not prepared for what I received when I opened my front door..there on the coffee table was a lovely home made card, welcoming me home, signed with a paw print from Jet, and a little black book, with journal entries of his activities during his 7 days with Lisa. Seemed like Jet had a little vacation of his own..must admit there was a little bit of the green eye monster in me, after reading through the journal and seeing all the love and attention Jet received, but then again, that kind of loving and attention to detail is what any pet owner wants for their fur kids..I recommend Nature Nanny Pet Service to all my friends and is the only pet sitter I'll use and trust in my home.
Jenni was well qualified, professional and friendly. I already booked her for future vacations!
Lanie is wonderful! My dog loves going to daycare here and Lanie is so accommodating and understanding of my erratic schedule. She loves dogs and I feel secure knowing that my dog is with her when I'm at work. I highly recommend her!
Sheila is awesome. I trust her completely to take care of my dog and my cat. She’s always available and treats them as if they were her own pets.
