Deedee was great! Unfortunately we were unable to conquer the dog chasing cat problem in our first 2 sessions but that may have had more to do with our cat being unresponsive to interacting with our dog. For the last 2 sessions, we worked on manners outside and we have had significant improvements in leash manners and people manners! Deedee gave us the tools necessary to continue working with our dog to continue to improve. Also, scooby doos house of play has a wide variety of options from train and board to personal lessons that we will utilize in the future to continue to conquer our puppy problems :) our dog was an 6 year old rescue so she can obviously help train out bad behaviors in older dogs too! Would go back if we ever decide to get another dog with behavioral issues. Thanks Deedee!
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 cannot put into words just how pleased I am with Fetch Pet Care Inc of Pittsburgh. It is absolutely the best dog sitting service Ive ever found. I have a 1 year old Golden Retriever who was (and maybe still is) quite a handful. We were about to cancel a vacation due to not having a sitter when we found Fetch. Our sitter, Beth knew exactly how to handle our rambunctious 5 month old pup and put us completely at ease. Gus loves to go to Beths house! We are completely comfortable and have full confidence in Beth. I have never been so at ease with a sitter (even when the sitter was a good friend or relative), Fetch is the greatest!
Fetch! is the best thing ever happened to our pets (2 cats and a dog) when we were away. And AmyLynn is a true hands-on professional who makes life easier for you and your pets. Thank you Fetch! family!!!
Lynn is absolutely wonderful!! We've used her on several occasions. I prefer to bring my dog to someone's house while I am out of town. The first time we used Lynn, she came to my house to meet my pet for a short time. Then we did a trial period of a couple of hours where I took my pet to her house to meet her dogs. It went fantastic! Lynn and her husband are true dog lovers. My dog loves going over to her house. Recently, we were on vacation for 2 weeks, and Lynn would send photos and emails of how my pet was doing, which was very comforting. She follows any special instructions such as dietary restrictions. She and her husband are just absolutely wonderful, and our dog things so too ! I'm so glad we found her and she is conveniently located in Greensburg. I don't hesitate to recommend Lynn at all. Just truly stellar !
Absolutely love Shari's pet sitting services. I love being able to leave my cat at home while on vacation without worrying about her or my home. She takes care of the pets, water plants, brings in mail, adjusts the lighting, and takes out the trash for a price cheaper than boarding your pet at the veterinarian! I also love that she sends daily pictures and messages from my pets so that I know they are doing well while I am away. Thanks Shari.
I would highly recommend Sandy if you need pet sitting services!!
Carrie and her husband took great care of my cat while I was away. She kept me up-to-date on his status with pictures and texts. Would definitely hire again.
Lisa has been my loving and capable "cat lady" for years, taking care of cats who were older, had special needs, and didn't want their claws clipped! We frequently take trips of two or more weeks, and have always returned to happy healthy pets and watered plants. You can't go wrong with Lisa.
After we met Tracy, we adopted a 3rd cat because our daughter in Philadelphia felt bad that he is an adult cat who had not been adopted in 4 months. His prospects for getting adopted seemed slim. So we brought him to Pittsburgh. Our 2nd cat was not happy with the new guy and we did not have enough time to get everyone adjusted before we asked Tracy to care for them. She did a wonderful job taking care of each cat and keeping everyone in their "safe" areas. When we returned, everyone was happy.
Diana checked on my cat daily for about a week while I was vacation. He can be moody while I'm gone and has been known to scratch a friend that watches him. Diana didn't report any behavior issues, and he did not seem as stressed when I came home as he has in the past. I suspect it was the consistency of her visits that helped. Everyday at roughly the same time. Or she's just the cat whisperer! Either way it's nice knowing that I can call her in when I go out of town and I can pay her a reasonable fee rather than imposing on friends for favors.
I have known Renee since she was 5 years old and she always had a passion for animals. I was not surprised to see her go in the Pet Sitting business. She has been watching our 3 dogs and we are very happy about that; not only did she tend to all their needs, she also picked up after the mess our son did in the kitchen, took out the garbage and picked up the mail. We can go away without having to worry about anything at home. I highly recommend her to anybody who needs a good sitter.
Darlene is a delight to work with. I was at first nervous about leaving my 2 pups. They are bigger dogs and love attention. But after meeting with her and her correspondence while we were away, all worries melted away. The dogs seem to love her her and she's very good with them. Highly recommended.
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.
Laura took care of my cats while on vacation for over a week. She feed them, cleaned liter boxes, put out my trash and brought in the mail. She even gave them chin massages. Sent me phone texts about the critters.
Jess took great care with my two dogs and cat while we were on vacation. I knew from the moment I met her that the animals would quickly adapt to her caring for them. They instantly fell in love with her wonderful personality and passion for animals. Dependable, caring, and affordable. Highly recommend.
The attention and love I give to the pets I take care of is just like how my own pets are treated as a family member!
I have been puppy sitting for my daughters' bull dogs, Duke and Duchess, for 4 years. She travels a good bit, and I am the dog nanny. She lives in Pittsburgh, and I stay at her house while she is gone. I have spoiled her dogs rotten. I love animals, however I am allergic to cats. If anyone needs help with horses also, I could help out. I grew up with horses, and I am not afraid to clean stalls, brush horses, feed, or just keep company.
