Dog Waiting fo Pet Sitter

What Pet Owners Are Saying

Julie E.

By far the most wonderful people to trust with your pets. I’ve used them many times throughout the years. Sometimes on short notice. Cheryl and Janeen treated my cat Porter as if he was their own.    During vacation, they would send me a video of Porter playing with new toys they purchased for him. Highly recommended!

Rory G.

Cheryl and Janeen were wonderful with my cats while I was away. It was already a stressful trip, there was a serious heat wave, and I don’t have air conditioning. They added extra visits, bought a cooling mat, and set up fans with ice packs. They truly care for every animal as if it is their own. It meant everything to me to have my family so well cared for while I was away.

Our pit bull is not just a pet but truly a member of our family. We wouldn’t trust just anyone with her care. Cheryl’s attention to detail and genuine compassion for our dog was clear at the outset. Great to have a piece of mind and not worry about our beloved pet while we are away!!
