I'm so glad I was able to find Stef. I was going away for a week and Stef was there to feed and play with my cats while I was gone, and for a fair price. Stef was so great that I booked with her again later that weekend. She gave me piece of mind. She is a fantastic pet 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.
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.
Nikki spent a great deal of time in our initial interview asking questions and meeting my two cats. I have an IBD kitty so I am happy to find a pet sitter with veterinary tech experience who can administer medication. When I returned from my trip both cats looked happy and well cared for. Thank you, Nikki!
We had a wonderful experience with Thumbtack and Shatiya. Our longtime pet-sitters left town. We gave the website a try and quickly made the connection to Petstigious. We liked the team's experience, and rates were competitive. The initial meeting was helpful, and we felt confident while we were gone. It was fun and adorable to get pictures and updates. We know the cats were happy and well taken care of. Thank you so much! Until next time, Stacia and Brian (+B & B)
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)
My scheduled cat-sitter canceled at the last minute. I found Happy Paws through Thumbtack. We quickly scheduled a meet the cat session. Angela was great, she had just the right person in mind to watch the cat. Liz was here every day, brought in the mail, cleaned the kitty litter, and played with Lucky each time she visited. She sent me notes every day. Lucky was a happy kitty while we were away. I will hire Happy Paws the next time I need someone to watch my cat.
I love Karen and so do my precious fur-babies, Lady and Gravy. They are always so excited when Karen comes to see them and I never have to worry because Karen is a true professional. I would recommend Karen and Tails to Scales, LLC to anyone needing a pet-sitter!
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.
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.
Crissy is awesome!! We have had her as a pet sitter for four years. She does a fantastic job not only caring for our dogs and cats, but our farm animals too! I would highly recommend her services!!
Lullaby Pet Sitters took good care of my bruiser!! I was hesitant at first to let a pet sitting company look after my pup but 10/10 I definitely reccomend it was like i never left ! They treat your dog and you like their own !
Outstanding pet sitter, patient, reliable, and very accommodating. My kitties got all the care and attention they needed, I highly recommend.
Shannon and her team were wonderful to work with! This was the first time we had ever hired a cat sitter for our cat. Our cat normally goes outside and inside everyday, however, their policy is to not let the cats out. I was hopeful that our kitty would cooperate with them, and he did! C-PUP provided an update on the status of our cat almost everyday. They even provided adorable images of him having fun and looking content. I would definitely hire them again!
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!
Caroline came through for us when we needed to find a pet sitter fast for our cat Luke as we were going out of town for business. Thanks !
The kids loved riding Pearl, she was the sweetiest horse. It was really easy to book my party, they called me the day before to confirm, everything went great and better than expected.
She worked with our schedule and set picture of our two dogs.
Great overnight sitter. She didn’t spend the night but checked in periodically throughout the day and stayed in my home for a few hours. I would definitely use her again whenever I need a sitter.
