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
Jessica has been coming to our home to take care of our three dogs. It's been a great experience. When scheduled, she comes twice a day to let them out and feed them. I used to have a problem getting our border collie to go downstairs for the day when I would leave for work. I've even had to carry him down there. Not anymore. I just say, "Jessica is coming today" and off he goes! I love knowing that my dogs are well taken care of. I also love reading Jessica's notes that she leaves about what went on that day. I would highly recommend Jessica to anyone needing dog care.
Fetch Pet Care of Pittsburgh, is wonderful. All the sitters I have dealt with are wonderful and care for my dog as if he was theirs. I know, when he is left in their care, he is going to have a good time and will be treated as if he was at home.
Lynn took care of our dog Draco in her home for approx. 9 days while we were away on vacation. I don't think Draco wanted to come home with us after her awesome care (including his yummy bed time snacks). Lynn sent us pictures and videos of Draco throughout his stay (which made it way easier as we knew he was having a great time). Draco especially loved all the attention he received from Lynn and her husband and getting to play with her 2 dogs. I would highly recommend Lynn for anyone looking to have personalized one-on-one attention for their doggy family members when you are out of town!
Fetch has done a great job of helping us with our Newfoundland puppy - our schedules sometimes change on short notice and they are always accommodating and helpful. Doggy day care with them is much less stressful than at some of the larger local facilities - they care for your pet like their own, and our dog always comes home happy and relaxed. Highly recommend!
I had Sandy care for my pets for the first time when I went on vacation a few weeks ago. I could not have been happier with her service. She was reliable, responsive and understood the anxiety of a pet owner that worries about their babies when they leave home. I am a very neurotic pet owner and I could not recommend Sandy more highly.
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.
Carol is a loving, dependable and very thoughtful pet loving woman. She takes my golden running and swimming each day and he comes home well exercised and very content. The best part of their new friendship is that Baxter is so excited and eager the next day when Carol arrives... Always wagging his tail! I would highly recommend Carol,; I already have!
Erin was quick to respond, she came to my house to meet me and the dogs. She was very affectionate with the dogs. I went out of town for a few days and Erin came to take care of the dogs multiple times a day. She texted me updates throughout the time. She was responsive, punctual, and thorough. I will be using her again!
The trainers who are part Dogworks training, Inc are the real deal. My dog Sage and I took part in their Fiesty Fido class this past summer and I could not have been more pleased. They taught me so much about reading my dog, dog reactivity, and positive training methods. Sage is doing much better on walks and I have these experts to thank. If you have a leash reactive dog then I would highly recommend this class.
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.
Although our care time isn't until December, it has been a pleasure communicating and setting up our dog's stay with the proprietor!
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.

I treat each pet as if they are my own. When I walk a dog, I take additional time to make sure they get what they need to make them happy. Whether it's sniffing longer in one place, running for a while, or playing in the yard, it's their time, and I want to do all that they need, so their owners have a balanced and happy pet when they come home. Additionally, if I am responsible to give a pet a meal or treats, I only feed them organic foods from USA/Canada.
We are providing first-class dog and cat boarding, grooming, dog daycare, dog training, and veterinary care.
I'm not aware of others who do this type of work. I'm an honest and trustworthy person. I grew up with dogs.
I walk dogs and give your loved pets a good home while you're away from them. I am an avid dog and cat lover myself and have years of experience.
I am a mature woman and understand the responsibility of caring for pets. Especially someone else's pet.
I love dogs and love to help out. If you have anything available, please contact me.
