Elmer was very good. He was prompt and got the job done quickly. He put together our new rowing machine and a spin cycle. He was also able to do a few more jobs around the house which was great.
Kyle has been taking care of my two dogs when I travel or just have long days at the office. He is extremely reliable, can be trusted to be at your house by himself, and great with my dogs. He always writes me detailed updates after his visits with pictures. I highly recommend him!
Blane was referred by a friend to help with purging and redefining our space after two rooms were free in my house. Blane truly has both vision and is also hands on. We emptied shelves, moved tables, got rid of a rug to open up the space. In three visits Blane found innovative ways of arranging furniture and artwork. We found a desk in one room that was not being used and moved it up to my newly created office. We also emptied a shelf to put in a newly created tv room. Blane is very aware of feng shui so that in my office he suggested I find a mirror so that although my back is facing the door when sitting at my desk, it is all cool now. In the first floor that was cluttered we cleared a cabinet filled with mail and replaced it with a glass bowl and later put up curtains. A very visually unaware friend noticed noticed the change as well as the curtains. On our most recent meeting we shopped for pillows and curtains and came back to the house to hang the curtains up. Blane finds innovative and aesthetic ways of arranging a room and clearing space. He also makes suggestions so that I went to the Container Store on my own and cleaned my dresser tops and rearranged my jewelry in boxes and containers so that now I know what I have. Blane is friendly and easy to work with, teaching you "how to fish" so that going forward I can utilize some of his vision and expertise on my own. I will call him back to work on my closets, but am going to clear some more space before then. Blane is truly a find. I am so happy that he came into my life.
Michelle's a hard worker and does good work. She gave the very filthy kitchen in the house we purchased a complete overhaul and it made a huge difference. She knows her products and really gets in - no half-way done job with her. Will hire again.
Donna and her team provided superlative care of my dog and fish (and house for that matter) while my family and I were traveling out of the country. I will recommend Prima Donna Pet Services to others and I will most certainly use them again.
Diane is great! Tate loves his walks and her availability for dog sitting is a life saver as well
Nica did a great job. She left my house clean and with good smell. She’s responsible and a reliable person.
Pam was an absolute delight! She took great care of my tar tar (60lb lab mix) while my girlfriend and I were away for a few days. When we came home, our dog was happier as ever! Pam left our house clean and spotless, tar tar was nice and brushed an we could tell he was well fed and played with, bc he was all relaxed and comfy on his bed :). We will definately use her everytime we go away for a trip or just want a few days to ourselves. Thanks again Pam!!! :)
December 2016 Julie W. Exotic Parrot sitting I was a little reluctant to leave our newly rescued Eclectus parrot for more than just a couple of days, for fear that he might start plucking his feathers again. I instantly liked Katie and knew that this wasn’t just another job for her, but rather her passion. She was not only great around the parrot, but my dog took to her as well. Katie went above and beyond caring for our parrot. She sent me a video of him playing in his water bowl and pictures every day. I absolutely wasn’t worried about him for a minute while we were away. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to care for their pet.
The Perfect Wife has been a lifesaver for me. I have a townhouse property in Manhattan and I needed someone to babysit it, which involved opening the door for realtors, gardeners, plumbers, as well as supervising the work and organizing the house. I needed someone to be me and be there with integrity and professionalism. The Perfect Wife has been reliable and efficient. They are always available and have the best solution for my needs. María and Adrian are great workers I trust them. They have the keys to my place and I am so happy with their work. They really back me up in Manhattan. I recommend their services and most of all I recommend them.
What About the Pets is the only business I trust with my pets. Christina and her team take great care of your pets and go out of their way to make sure you are satisfied. They are professional, knowledgeable, and caring. What About the Pets won't let you down. I highly recommend this business for all your pet sitting and dog walking needs.
Very good experience. Courteous, professional service. My pet was in great shape when I returned from a week long trip.
We have her babysit sometimes, which includes bathing, feeding, and overall caring for our 1 year old Coton. She's very loving towards our dog and is very attentive to her needs. Every time we have her babysit it seems like our dog doesn't want her to leave! She's everything we needed and could ever want in a dog sitter because of the love and attention she gives to our Gigi.
Jeannie worked for me for three years before we relocated. She always made herself available to watch my children, and if we were out of town, dog/house sit for us. Her education background makes sense for how well she works with children! I never had any issues communicating with Jeannie, her professional manner and organization made me feel as ease every time she worked with us. Coming home to a clean house was always an added bonus. Overall, Jeannie is a true gem and I am so thankful our family got the chance to know her!
I am currently a college student who is looking for a place to house-sit in NYC. I have a lot of experience with animals (dogs and cats, specifically) and am a great caretaker. I am also very clean and hygienic. I'll send you periodic reports to ensure that your animals are getting the care that they deserve!
I believe cats are are always way more comfortable at home. There is the occasional kitty that is used to being out and about. i even recently saw a young man walking his cat!! (so awesome) But for the most part our felines feel better hanging out on the window sill and doing some good old people watching. Dogs have the advantage of going to the dog park or doggie day care everyday or a few times a week and if anything are used to being away from home, cats not so much. they are fragile, i recently moved to the area and it took my poor cat almost 2 weeks to adjust, poor thing hardly ate and would not leave the spot he managed to wedge himself into behind the couch! Lets not mess up their routines. Lets allow them to keep on people watching from their favorite perch
