Stephanie is the most reliable pet sitter I have found. I love her and my pets love her(dog & cat). She is dependable, caring, prompt, loving and always available in an emergency. I will not use anyone else. She has stayed at my home for vacations when we weren't able to take the pets along. Very trustworthy. I have never had any problems with Stephanie and I highly recommend her to those people who want their pets to have the attention that they themselves would give to them. She treats your pets like they are her own and you don't find that with every pet walker/sitter.
Having quality care for the pet that I love so very much, required much research and someone who genuinely cares about my loved one. After looking for quite some time for a local pet sitter, I was blessed to have found Walking with Renzo & Ruby! My dog and I were one of the lucky ones that got the Renzo & Ruby experience! Their amazing owner Natasha is top notch and is very accomodating. She met all the needs that I asked for and more! Natasha welcomed us to a break the ice session. Mink and I were invited over to meet Renzo & Ruby to help with my dogs socialization skills, this helped with Mink's aprehesion she sometimes has with other dogs. Natasha offered the in home care and drop by visits if I needed it. I was assured that my dog would do fine in her home or mine because Renzo & Ruby were very good about sharing their space! Mink's nervousness diminished as she warmed up to Natasha and the introduction to her babies Renzo & Ruby, prior to her stay! I was elated and impressed at the attentiveness being displayed. While on vacation, Natasha sent the cutest pictures of Mink on the ride over and while warming up to her dogs! I will definitely recommend her services to anyone who is looking for superior care for their pet/s. Thank you Natasha! Alindia
Donna Andrews has done an excellent job looking after our dear cat. She has a genuine love for cats, founded in long experience, and will make a point of getting to know and appreciate the individual personality of any cat she cares for. Donna prepared conscientiously for her responsibilities with our cat, was meticulous in following all care instructions in letter and spirit, communicated regularly and fully about how things were going from day to day, and left a detailed written summary. We returned to find our cat doing beautifully well, happier after being in her care than with any of 3 other previous cat-sitters. Highly recommended.
My cat sitter Andre was fantastic. I cannot recommend him more highly.
I returned to my home in Virginia after having been out West for a few years, caring for my parents. Upon my return, I learned that my closest friend had just weeks to live. She wanted me to be with her. At the same time, my little 18 month old dog was not well. We still didn't know exactly what was wrong, but with increasing frequency, she had severe bleeding out of both ends! It turned out to be a serious autoimmune disorder, and she must receive pretty close attention because symptoms are subtle until it is a life-threatening emergency. I was torn, knowing that my friend had two cats and I couldn't take my dog with me. She requires medications and a special, home cooked diet. I placed a notice for an emergency, 24-hour pet sitter who could take my dog in their home, because she wasn't well enough to be alone. I received many responses. I chose Nikki partly because of the caring message she left me, and I was impressed with her medical background. Upon meeting Nikki, I felt reassured, and appreciated her directness and honesty. I felt very little trepidation about leaving my little dog in her care for what could have been a few weeks. Finding Nikki was a gift. Trusting her with my little dog came easy by the second day. She always made time to talk with me when I called to check on my pup, and the details she told me helped me to know that she was keeping a close watch on the little one. Her love for animals is very apparent, and she notices everything. Nikki has, on several occasions, taken my dog into their home on very short notice, and on other occasions, has kept her a day or two longer than planned, again without prior notice. (A couple of times, my home cooked meals for the dog ran out, and Nikki cooked up a batch without being asked.) Nikki is very knowledgeable concerning medical issues and treatments, and I NEVER worry when my dog is with her. My pup enjoys every second with Nikki and her family, and it's a special treat for her to go there. She is well socialized during those visits, with Nikki's family and seven pets, with neighbors and friends, and with other pets that Nikki sometimes has at her home. I have gifted my dog with a 24-hour stay at Nikki's home on quite a few occasions, even when I didn't need a pet sitter! Nikki has far exceeded my expectations of a pet sitter, and I've always received from her so much more than my money's worth. I highly, highly recommend Nikki. She is skilled, patient, reliable, honest and caring; she notices every detail, and she LOVES animals! I'm so thankful to have found her.
Oh my goodness, Jenny was the best, and affordable compared to DC area dog sitters. She had Pet Vet Background, so she's on top of everything, especially if your dog has meds. Sounds as if she was totally on top of walks and such. I will be using her again for our dog Daisy, hoping she doesn't become super popular from this positive review and others' reviews. I asked her if she would want to.watch my Teens too! (ha ha)
Vicky was great! She not only took great care with all of our animals, she handled my anxiety well! We received photos and notes every day with updates of the animals and how they were doing. I told her not to worry about one of my super shy cats because if she tried to find her, it would stress her out more than just being left alone...well, the first day I get a picture of that cat just chillin with Vicky! When we came home we were greeted with an, "Oh...it's you. You're back" bored look from the animals...that was GREAT! I knew she kept them so happy they were not pining away for us or stressed out. I had used another pet sitter for seven years due to convenience, but the animals seemed stressed when we returned. With Vicky, everything was great.
Kim is very professional and sweet, she took care of my kitty cat and chinchilla while we were away for our wedding. I have an incredibly needy cat but he wasn't super desperate when we got home so I could tell he had enough attention. We then used Kim to check on the house and chinchilla while away for our honeymoon. I usually worry a lot about my animals and can get a bit anxious but she was very understanding and I felt relieved to have her with them. I left my cat at a friend's house for our honeymoon but I think if we go on another long trip I will just ask Kim to come back. She has even brought in packages for us and made an extra stop to turn off my ridiculous house alarm so the beeping noise wouldn't bother my chinchilla. Highly recommend. (Oh and she is one of the only pet sitters we have had who isn't scared of the chinchilla. I can tell she is a real animal lover)
They pet sit for my cat sassy. The sitter was a polite student from GW, my sassy fell in love with her and I feel very comfortable with her sitting with my cat while I'm away.
So happy we chose Gerard to watch our cat! We have only had her a week and a half and he had great advice for her as well. We knew she was in good hands while we were gone and we could tell she'd been taken care of once we returned. Gerard gave daily updates and pictures which we really appreciated! He knew how our cat wanted to play and be spoiled and he met her needs perfectly. Would highly recommend Gerard if anyone else needs a cat sitter.
Emily is calm, patient and clearly attuned to her clients and horses. Lessons with Emily are the best part of the week for my son, who struggles with emotional and developmental disabilities.
Outstanding pet sitter, patient, reliable, and very accommodating. My kitties got all the care and attention they needed, I highly recommend.
Jane took care of our FIVE little fur-bearing family members while we were away for a week. She is by far the best pet-sitter we have ever had! She started with an initial meeting in our home, which was incredibly thorough. It's clear she has a real love for and understanding of dogs, and real skill handling behavioral issues with pets. It's also clear now that we've had her support that the full range of services she offers is delivered with the same gentle, insightful, and steady care that every pet owner wants for their four-legged loved ones. She also retrieved our mail and made sure the house was safe while we were away--a real bonus! Jane provides daily written updates, which were incredibly helpful (she also identified an issue with our bathroom ceiling that would have taken us a few days to notice after we came back). She even found our shy guy, Skinner, every day, even though he is very good at hiding from strangers! We returned home to a happy, snuggly, healthy menagerie that had been expertly cared for. It was such a comfort knowing we had reliable, thoughtful care while we were away. We'll definitely reach out to Jane again the next time we're out of town. Strong endorsements from both of us humans and our furry five-some!
I was running behind with my party because of a few mishaps but they came on time and was very professional! The horses were beautiful! I would definitely recommend them to anyone and use them again! Thank you so much for your services
I had a great cat sitter who interacted well with my cats, provided daily reports, answered all of my questions and offered great suggestions for managing some of their eating behaviors.
My daughter loves coming out to Hogback Mtn horseback riding.Elizabeth takes the time to teach her caring for the horse along with riding.She is a great instructor .
Denise is an Outstanding Pet Sitter. My dogs loved her and were very happy to be in her care. I would highly recommend Denise.
I started riding at Pond View Stables 9 years ago when I was 7. Thinking back on all those years I cannot think of one thing that I wish mrs Joan would have done differently. She has shaped me as a rider, horsewoman, and person. The horses there are great, and can teach a wide variety of skills. I show every so often, and mrs Joan is so supportive. I can't think of another barn I'd rather ride at.
Ms Carole was a wonderful instructor for my daughter when she first started English riding lessons. My daughter had ridden a few times on trail rides and beginner lessons as well as volunteered at a horse rescue, but wanted to improve her riding skills. Ms Carole was focused on safety and patiently teaching my daughter how to ride as a proper English rider. She taught her dressage as well as beginning jumping. We highly recommend Ms Carole.
