I trust very few people to be in my house when I am out of town, but I absolutely trust Janna at Phoenix Pet Care. She is reliable, dependable, and she takes great care of my dog whenever I am out of town. My dog is so much happier being at home and being cared for by Janna rather than being stuck in boarding. I have been using Janna's services for years, and I will continue to use her in the future.
We stopped boarding our cat, Michaleen, when he started throwing hissy fits every time we tried. He is much better when we have someone come to the house. When we moved from Texas to Oregon, we needed to find a new pet sitter. Brittany came to our home to meet Michaleen (and us!) and he loves her! Rubbed against her, let her scratch his ears - I'm thrilled. Obviously, so is my cat.
We have had Richard dog sit once, but am very happy. He was on time and our puppy had a great time with him. We will definitely be using Richard in the future.
Heather is very nice and thoughtful, and was willing to come to the house to meet my animals as well as get the layout and go over my needs while away. She stayed a couple nights to take care of things and I felt fully confident in her services. She performed well and is completely trustworthy and I felt safe leaving my babies in her hands. Heather is experienced with all types of animals and she also left the house in immaculate condition. I am excited to use her again for house-sitting and pet-sitting services!
Janette did a great job house and pet sitting our two dogs. Very reliable and honest. We felt very comfortable leaving our house and dogs in her care.
Mary-Anne is a great instructor. We met and made a plan for the exercise program and she even advises on nutrition. She's not just knowledgeable about yoga, but also knows Pilates, general fitness, etc. She's flexible about session times and dates as well as where to meet. We've gone on walks and have a hike planned. She comes to my house and brings equipment so she makes it really easy on me! We're also planning on using the gym in my complex. Couldn't say enough good things about her. Highly recommend!
5 star did a whole house move out cleaning for us. They were very professional & prompt. My house was a mess after we had moved out & they did a great job. All my cabinets, floors, refrigerator etc. We would hire them again!!

I'm a retired military, DAVet, and a recent widower looking for something to provide experienced service in this area to start. I have over 7 years of experience with B&B, once in Albany, Oregon. If you're looking for someone to house-sit privately and maybe tend to your plants and animals, or if you're looking for some sort of data entry work on your computer, please contact me before you spend many times the amount on someone who might cramp your lifestyle. You don't have to worry about your liquor or food if you're looking for a house-sitter, as I don't drink alcohol and will obtain my own food, and you don't have to worry about someone who may be hosting wild parties or whatever. I'll respect your wishes, whatever they might be. I also offer experienced bed-and-breakfast and house-sitting. I am interested in finding (out of the way) clean environment (smoke-free) and houses in need of overnight security while owners are away. I can also provide care for friendly pets. I have my own four-legged medical companion. Please feel free to contact me with your questions. Thank you so much for your kind consideration.
Laura is my first choice of who to leave my kitties with if I am ever out of town. She is so loving towards them, feeds them, cleans their litterbox, gives them fresh water, ensures the temperature of the apartment is safe and comfortable for them. She also brushes and plays with them so they get some excercise and she cuddles with them and showers them with affection. Should anything happen to them I trust Laura's knowledge and good judgement. She would communicate and ensure veterinary care was received if needed. Laura is the most reliable, responsible and loving person I know to leave my kitties with. Have known her about 10 years.
When we left for a week in November We wanted to have someone keep an eye on our house. Lucky Gene was available to stay at our house and I was cleaner than when we left it.
I feel I need to chime in on Kendra's innate ability with boarding animals. To say Kendra is good with pets is an understatement. Kendra goes the extra mile with each creature she comes in contact with; she has an animal rescue kit in her van just in case she comes across an animal in need! A few summers ago, I had a temporary job take me out of state for a month and couldn't take my cat with me. Frantically, I tried to think of a caregiver who would put up with my temperamental feline friend. My cat is not really a "people cat" and prefers not to be touched by anyone other than me; I was truly panicked about finding a place for her. Somehow my kitty was relaxed and at ease while purring and sitting on Kendra's lap only within a few short minutes of reaching the house (not something I have ever seen). Needless to say, all of my worries were put at ease immediately. If your loved one needs a place to stay, look no further! Kendra's compassion, openness and knowledge of dogs, cats, and other furry or feathered friends will amaze you.

I am a house sitter and pet sitter for people going out of town. I currently have the time to give in helping people feel confident in trusting someone to care for their loving home and pets.
Ashley is awesome! She's so caring and respectful towards the animals and their humans. I have had her stay for overnights to take care of my dogs, horses, and goats and have had her come for midday visits to let the dogs get their wiggles out. I've referred her to many friends and family members and have received excellent feedback about how grateful they are to have someone they trust working with their furkids! Also, having a positive reinforcement dog walker/pet sitter is so crucial for the well being of the animals, so I am very thankful to have found someone who values humane and effective techniques.
Nicole was our house sitter for our 3 cats and 2 pet rats for 1 week during our vacation. She did a great job and was very professional. Even when we had a minor emergency with one of the pets, she was quick to communicate the issue and resolve it. I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for reliable pet sitting in the area!
We currently hire Dulce for her dog walking and she is amazing. It is easy to schedule her through simple text messaging and she shows up on time. Her rates are competitive and a great value and she walks our dog for an entire hour! She even send photos.
