Earlier this year we went on a short vacation, the first since we became homeowners, and for lack of forethought our only option was to board our cat for the 3.5 days we were gone. While she made it through okay, we couldn't help but think it would be less stress for everyone involved if we just let her stay at home and had someone check in on her, so we began shopping for pet sitters prior to our long vacation this fall. To give some context, we had certain criteria for a pet sitter. We didn't want someone who we couldn't trust to take the job seriously, and truly wanted to hire someone who does this primarily for a living. There's a measure of trust that goes into this - you're giving someone virtually unrestricted access to your home and hoping that they will take care of your beloved pet as you would. It's a tall order. We had quite a few respondents to our postings, and out of all of them we chose Helene after our initial meet and greet. The things that stood out to us the most were Helene's earnest interest in pet care, her depth of knowledge, and her bonded/insured practice. This is her profession, not just something to make some money on the side. Helene asked all the right questions of us up front, which is what we were looking for. I'm happy to say things couldn't have gone better! We left on vacation for 12 days this autumn and received daily updates via email to let us know that our cat was being well cared for. We asked Helene to stop by for half hour daily sessions, inclusive of feeding/maintenance/play, and it seems to have gone off without a hitch. It was really great to have one less thing to worry about, and they seemed to have gotten along very well. We will definitely be contacting Helene again in the future for any pet sitting needs and encourage anyone reading this to do so as well.
She arrived on time and got straight to work. She had estimated about four hours based on the size of my home, but being that it has been a while since we had done a very thorough cleaning due to my health issues, as well as having two teenagers and a dog, it took closer to seven hours. She stayed until the job was complete and did a very nice job. Even though she stayed almost double the time, she didn't ask for more money, though we insisted on paying her more. She absolutely deserved it. There were a couple surfaces that she missed dusting, but everything was scrubbed and cleaned very well. We liked her so much, we will definitely have her back again. Likely every two to three weeks going forward so she can concentrate on some other tasks like helping to organize closets, etc. She was also wonderful with our dog and does do pet sitting. She seems very trustworthy as well. All in all, I would give her an 'A'.
Belinda was great. She did everything we asked for our pet dog Sandy. We intend to use her again and definitely recommend!
Susan has been cat sitting for us for over ten years and we have only positive things to say. First, she did cat sitting for one cat and now for our three. She always asks how they are doing along with detailed questions so she knows what is going on with them, their food and medicine issues, etc. She is easy to work with, 100% reliable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced. She has a very calm demeanor which our cats respond well to and she spends the time to play with them and give them attention while we are gone so that they are happy and in good spirits when we come home.
I cannot say enough positive things about Shauna and Furry Hooligans. She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful in her service and genuinely cares about my fur babies. I have an elderly dog with severe arthritis. Shauna comes every day while I am at work to walk him. It's difficult for him to move and she is very caring and patient with him. Recently, I was called out of town and Shauna pet sat for my animals (my dog and cat). She was very caring and thorough. She even sent me pictures of my animals so that I knew they were happy. What I appreciated most about Furry Hooligans is how much Shauna genuinely cares for my animals. I highly recommend her service.
They did a great job, very caring for my cat.
Fantastic pet sitter, was able to create a bond with our VERY picky cat. Always sends us updates at the start and end of the visits. I know our cats are in good hands and that she won't hesitate to contact us if there are questions.
Lisa has been my pet sitter for over 4 years now. Loyal, trustworthy and dependable are her 3 greatest attributes and the most important part is my dogs just love her! She is just great with them! She has even rushed one of my dogs to my vet when she was at my house pet sitting. My dog cut herself on my fencing deep enough to require stitches. I highly recommend her!
Have not experienced Carols expertise on dog training yet, but thumbtack app wants me to rate anyways. Carol has gone out of her way to contact me for a phone converstion and has been very patient w my unavailabilty. As for thumbtacts rating i would say 3 stars which a 5 star waiting for the app to allow u to schedule these appointments threw the app making all the phone calls a unnessacary step. Hope to see u soon ped pet dog training !
John takes care of my two cats - Pete and George - very regularly. My fiancé and I have very erratic work schedules and do not get a lot of notice before we need to travel. John has been so flexible with us, and seems to really enjoy his time with our boys! He even sends me pictures and texts updates! I think his rates are very reasonable, and he's worth the peace of mind if you have a pet who needs some attention while you're away!
Robert was amazing in taking care of my dog. He was extremely professional and responsive. I loved getting photo updates of how my dog was doing. I also greatly appreciated that Robert was trained in pet CPR and was independently insured - definitely kept my mind at ease whilst I was gone. I recommend Robert and the Pigglesworth Pet Project very highly!
Connie has done a wonderful job pet sitting our 2 cats. It's very easy to schedule with her and she always texts us updates and photos when we're out of town. I would recommend her without hesitation!
I was desperate for a dog walker when my local high schoolers went off to college. Todd has been great. Wally, my kind of tough mixed breed shelter dog really likes him and Todd has never let me down.
Four Paws Pet Sitting has been a lifesaver to me and my husband. We both work very sporadic hours and they have been very accommodating to help get our dogs out on long days. My dog can be challenging at times but both Denise and staff are experienced working with animals. I trust them fully!
I've been a fur mom to Ryder for almost 9 years now. For those first 6, I had the luxury of family to love and care for him while I was away. Two years ago, my family moved out of state and I was forced to look elsewhere for my dog sitting needs. It was the most stressful, heart-aching experience I've encountered as I couldn't cope with dropping him off at a kennel or a boarding facility for 2 weeks, or even a day for that matter. He's my baby and I needed someone I could trust. Two years ago, I hit the jackpot and found Pawzz N All and Ive been using them ever since. Pawz N All is an in-home sitter that does not kennel pets unless they are asked to. They watch multiple dogs simultaneously and own a dog themselves so your fur child will always have social hour! Pawzz N All has always been available to me, even last minute which is beyond appreciative. They are close to home for me which makes it very convenient. They provide pictures and updates if asked and will even administer medications if necessary. Pawzz N All truly has a passion and love for all dogs and cares for them like they're their own. They are patient and definitely have eased my anxiety with this process which at one point was new territory for me. I would recommend Pawzz N All 100%, for first timers or anyone looking to reestablish a new sitter!!
Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.
Denise has been cat sitting for me for about a year and I could not be happier. Not only does she scoop the poop and feed and water my fur baby, she takes the time to pet and brush her. She is a cat and dog owner so she knows the ins and outs. I definitely would recommend Denise to care for your pet.
Jenn is everything you could want in a pet sitter and more! My cat does not warm up to strangers whatsoever, that's why his name is Fraidy. Jenn did a great job with the usual stuff--feeding, cleaning the litter box and so on, but she truly EXCELLED in connecting and making friends with Fraidy. She is patient, kind and affectionate. She took the time to get to know him. I have never used a pet sitter before and was nervous about leaving my cat with a stranger and handing over the keys to my house. She put me at ease too. She gave me updates, texts, photos and even sent me a video to relieve my worries--without being intrusive or excessive. Jenn is caring, reliable and professional. She truly exceeded my expectations.
Leo and Loni are the first furry babies I have ever had (I was allergic to lots of things, including many animals, when I was younger). So finding someone to look after my little ones when I am traveling was an important decision for me. When I reached out to Modern Pet, Israel explained to me the process and he came for a visit to introduce himself in person and meet L and L. It was clear to me that he and Kris (who I met later) love animals and the work they do. I happily recommend their services without reservation. The pets that we choose to bring into our home become family for many of us and it is a nice source of comfort to know that Modern Pet is there to look after my little family when I am traveling. - Keith

I treat my clients pets as though there a part of my family
Because since I was a baby I have grown up around animals. I have a deep passion to work them.
