Awesome with our puppy & very nice people! So glad we went with these trainers. Our pup loved them & learned so much!
Let me start by saying that Bonnie was amazing! She was professional, caring and extremely accommodating. My husband and I have 2 small dogs (1 Yorkie & 1 schnauzer). We went on a 10 day vacation to Aruba and just got back about a week ago. We travel a lot so we always use a family friend when we have to leave our pups. It has always made me nervous to leave them w/someone I don't know or at a kennel. I have heard war stories from people that kennel their dogs. That said, we use the same friend every time and we have known for 10+ years. As a matter of fact we have never had a "stranger" care for our dogs ever. This time, the family friend was out of town so I reluctantly started looking at kennels. I read reviews, visited a few facilities and did a ton of research, but I was not able to find one that I felt would really care for our pups. I found Thumbtack during my research so I made an account and posted my pup sitting needs (I have never used the site before). I didn't really think I would use someone from this site but when Bonnie sent a reply to my post I noticed that her message was very detailed. Everyone else had a very canned/generic response, but not Bonnie. She told me a little about herself and clients she has had and stil has over the past few yrs. she even said she has references she could provide to me. She was very detailed and I liked that. I felt that she truly put thought in the message she sent so I asked her if I could come out and meet her. She responded very quickly and said she would , accommodate whatever time and date I wanted to come out to her house. When I first meet Bonnie I noticed that she was a very open and just all-around a comfortable person to be around and talk to. I even brought one of my dogs with me, my 2yr old schnauzer that has some behavior issues at times. Bonnie was happy to show us around her property as well as her house. We talked for about an hour as we walked around the farm she lives on. After that visit I called Bonnie to make arrangements for her to watch my dogs. The day of drop off I had lots of stuff with me; food, toys, blankets, leashes, treats, so on.... Bonnie sat with me as I showed her everything and she made index cards for each dog. She wrote down information on each of them, i.e. what they like and don't like, what time they eat, medication info and so on. She asked questions and took detailed notes one each pup. While I was away she sent pics and texted updates. She truly made me feel like she was a family member or close friend that was simply watching my pups. In all honesty Bonnie cared for our dogs the way I would have and I'm very greatful for that. I would have paid double for the service she provided. I can't thank Bonnie enough and I will use her every time I go away! I have a wedding to attend in FL in October and I have already started making arrangements with Bonnie. I have told every friend, coworkers and family members that they should use Bonnie. Thank you Bonnie! PS. I ask my dogs where Bonnie is and they get so excited! They loved her! -- Best Regards, Lola Mattiello
I can not thank Shelly enough for all that she did for our animals. My fiance and I had to leave out of town very unexpectantly for a funeral. Shelly made time to meet with me the same day I called her, and agreed to take care of our 3 year old boxer/bulldog mix, and our 2 cats starting the very next day and for the next 6 days. She came over 3 times a day and made sure that our animals were fed, took our dog on frequent walks, and kept an eye on our house while we were gone. What started out as a very stressful trip soon became easier to cope with knowing that our pets were in great hands. Never did we leave town feeling so assured that things would be okay while we were gone. I would recommend Shelly and her pet sitting services to anyone, and will not hesitate to call her in the future! :) :)
Benny is a great guy and a great puppy sitter! I have an 8yr old Shih-Tzu that has never been away from us but a last minute trip forced us to find her a sitter. Benny was super attentive, loving and patient with Miah. He Facetime us every night! We would recommend Benny to anyone! Thank you Benny! <3
I hired Erin to watch my 2 dogs and cat a few months prior to my March vacation. Unfortunately, during that time my senior dog got sick. Erin and I communicated the whole time as I got diagnosis. Erin was prepared and experienced with caring for a diabetic dog. This made me feel comfortable hiring her. Sadly my senior dog got very sick and I had to euthanize her. During that time, prior to my vacation I cannot begin to explain how understanding and gracious Erin was. I went on vacation and Erin made it so easy. She put me at ease with updates daily and was very communicative. I will hire her again because I feel comfortable that I have hired a trustworthy pet loving person.
I have been on the market for puppy training classes for Remy, my 9-week-old Frenchie, for a week or so now and have been in contact with many people. Sissie is by far the most responsive, the best communicator, and the most flexible trainer that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. She even took a phone call from me at 10:50 PM and discussed her training methods and expressed her genuine excitement to meet Remy. On that phone call, Sissie gave me a tip on how to capture Remy's attention while in the middle of chewing something I don't want him to be chewing, and it worked like a charm! And that was just through the phone! Sissie really knows what she is doing and truly cares about her clients and their fur babies. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!
Great time! Your kids will love it, instructors are great!
Kathy has been an absolute Godsend! Harley (my dog) loves Kathy and does a happy dance upon her arrival. I never worried a minute while I was out of town because she had everything under control. I would HIGHLY recommend Kathy and her pet sitting services to ALL my friends with furry people. Don't even worry about stressing or planning a trip to the kennel, just let Kathy take care of your little furry family. She is prompt, reliable, trustworthy and will update me when I'm out of town which is always comforting. I don't know what I would do without her! Call her today!!
My dogs are happy and healthy when I return from a trip. And I have piece of mind knowing they are well cared for during my trip.
I am available to babysit on an as-needed basis, pet sit, do errands and house work, etc. I am a graduate student looking to assist others while seeking a supplemental income.
We offer in-shop and at-home boarding service for your companion birds, while you are away from home. Bird sitting fees run $12.00 per day and per bird in our shop, and $20.00 per day (up to two birds - $10.00 for each additional bird) for home visits.
I do carpet cleaning, spot cleaning, general housecleaning, dog bathing and sitting, bookkeeping, organizing and errands.
Will come to your home and walk the dogs, feed, walk, clean litter boxes, bath, brush out hair, play with the cats or dogs. Your precious darlings will be well taken care of so that you can take that vacation you have always wanted. I am a big animal lover. I have 6 chihuahua's, 3 chinchilla's, and an African Grey Parrot. I also have equine experience.
My works stands out because I have a passion for helping animals and taking care of them. I have a big heart and I would like to think I can tell when they are lonely or missing their owner and I will do my best to keep them preoccupied!
I provide pet care for your pets while you are away! My services include feeding, exercising, light grooming, bathing, and foundation training for sit, down, off, drop, and come.
I love animals. I am willing to take care of your pets in your home. I have experience with my own pets, which include five Labrador retrievers and three cats. One of my dogs needs insulin injections. I also administer oral medications.
I provide the following services: * Pet sitting * House-sitting * Administration of medicine, oral and topical * Grooming and bathing * Walking and exercising
I have four dogs of my own, three dachshunds and one English bulldogs which all require a lot of attention and responsibility. I love pets and am responsible. I am not taking summer classes and would love to pick up something extra to do with my time, especially something I would enjoy like being around pets.
I really don't have a business. I just Love dogs and want to help people out with their pets. I lost my girl.
I take a personal approach to my job. For many pets, staying at home is a better choice then being put in a new environment. There is less chance of picking up diseases, or stress of not being in a pet's own environment. I have visited many facilities and see that the dogs are given food and shelter, but not much personal attention, which I can readily share with them. My other service offered is dog walking. When I walk a dog I am fully aware of my surroundings so as to keep our walk safe and stress free. I am considerate about picking up dog waste, as I care about our environment. I am insured and bonded, plus have had a background check from a place of employment. I love meeting new people and getting to enjoy their pets. The pets in my care all have different personalities, with likes and dislikes. It is fun to play with them. I do not overbook so that I can spend quality time with my cats and dogs. It is a pleasure to give owners a peace of mind knowing that their pet(s) are well taken care of.
I'll put out fresh food and water for your pet, take your dogs out for walks, clean your kitty's litter box and play with them. No need to worry about your pets, they will be loved and cared for.
