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.
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.
Tina took all the worry out of leaving my 3 pups for the first time for more than a few hours. Tina went above and beyond to make sure that our pups and her were a good fit, she came to the house on two seperate occasions before the job started and she did everything we asked and the awesome part was the dogs fell in love with her. Tina has an excellent way of being a beacon of calm so the pups can relax and carry on as if we were there. I am happy to say that she even sent us pictures of our furkids daily, you could swear it us taking the pictures by the way the pups were acting. I am so happy with Tina and the way my pups respond to her, I will continue to use her services and never doubt that I am leaving my most precious gifts in loving and capable hands.
Heather is awesome! She's such a real down to earth person and my dog and I both felt instantly comfortable with her and completely safe to leave her in my house even though because of my nuts schedule we ended meeting for the first time 15 minutes before I had to leave. Not normally ideal but she exudes warmth and honestly and put me at ease right away. George (my dog) and I say YES to Heather!
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.
Dependable, trustworthy, excellent pet services. We have used Pet Professionals for years and always receive excellent service....plus our domestic house cats love Judy when she comes in to check on them. On a scale of 1 to 10 they are a 15!!
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.
Nicole is wonderful! She is extremely professional and organized. She showed up (on time) to meet our dog prior to our trip. Our dog who has anxiety took to her right away. Nicole was communicative, responsive and easy to work with. We received pictures, updates (even though we were out of cell range) and a lovely note upon return. She also filled out her own daily checklist letting us know how all of our animals did. Our house was clean and our animals were happy. I would hire Nicole again in a heartbeat. She went above and beyond and I appreciated not having to worry about the care my pets were receiving.
Apartment was well cleaned and the appt was scheduled very easily. Carolyn was very accommodating with setting up a time to clean.
Marilee did a great job taking care of Frankie and keeping us updated on how she was doing while we were away on our first trip without her. The pictures and notes that Marilee sent gave us peace of mind that allowed us to enjoy our vacation! When we returned home we found a dog that was more relaxed that before we left - nice work! We would definitely use Sit & Stay again and will refer friends that need the same service.
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.
Brian has been my lab Hudson's best friend for the past 3 years. He has taken care of all our dog walking and house sitting needs, even when it's been short notice. I definitely trust Brian and can tell he loves his work...and that my dog loves him!
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!
Ginger has house sat and taken care of my dogs on two separate occasions and did an excellent job. My dogs love her. When I returned home my house was clean, dogs feed and happy, and an extra nice surprise waiting for me. I travel worry free with Ginger house sitting and caring for my furry family members.
We had Julie come out to clean before a Realtor's arrival the next day. She went through the house bottom to top. Cleaned hand prints that I hadn't even seen, did extra unexpected things like vacuuming the lamp shades, windexing glass on wall art, cleaned base mouldings, door jams& doors+ the regular cleaning in Kitchen & Bathrooms & rest of the house. The house was spotless when she finished. A 5 Star job for a reasonable price. I have asked her to come back & have recommended her to all my friends.
Kristi house sat for me in my Irvington Neighborhood 2,200 square foot house. She watched over both another renter in the master suite, house logistics and my 20lb Lhasa Apso. She was a dream and after 3 months I returned to a very clean and happy house and a very well adjusted dog. I would trust her and have her stay anytime!
I'm based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am available for pet and house sitting. I love every kind of animal. I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
I am a mature and responsible graduate student, looking for part-time work to subsidize education costs.
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.
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.
Hello! My name is Megan and I am a student at Portland Community College. I am a rabid animal lover, so I decided creating my own pet sitting and walking business. It would be a great way for me to make money. I am willing to travel to you and my price is negotiable. I promise to take the best care of your animal.
