Nathaly & Charo A.
“Thank you for taking such good care of our little Mickey. We know that whenever we need to board him, we can do so with peace of mind. He always comes home clean and smelling great, too.”
“Nina was great and my pet was happy staying in her home. Nina communicated well and before booking with her we met so my pet can get to know her before the stay. During my vacation, Nina would send me pictures of my pet and messages about how she was doing. I was satisfied with her care and would definitely recommend her to others and use her again in the future. Thank you!”
Marc & Jayne W.
“We will definitely be using Marc & Jayne again in the future if they're available! Our Labradoodle, Lula, had a great stay with their family. Communication with Marc was easy and he responded promptly to my questions. I like that Marc requested a meet-and-greet to make sure both parties were a good fit. After the meet-and-greet, it was clear to me that Lula would be in great hands since Marc was thorough with his questions about Lula (vaccination status, activity level, feeding schedule, sleeping arrangement, etc.) I received daily updates of photos and videos of Lula during her stay. An issue we have when boarding Lula is that she doesn't usually eat well when she is boarded, but Marc & Jayne took the time and effort to try different approaches to get her to eat. This extra effort on their part is just one example of how they treat their visitors just like their own.”
Emily & Craig L.
“Emily is one of the best sitter I ever have for our doggie. She is very care to details and even studies his profile beforehand. She also sends us pics and videos everyday so I feel so relieved!”
“Our three cats stayed with Jason and Jennifer for 6 days. It was like they went to stay with their extended family. I & J genuinely love cats. They ensured that my young cats felt safe and pampered during their stay. We got regular updates which were very reassuring. It’s like both cats, and we had a good vacation. Thank you both for your patience, love, and thoughtfulness towards our trio!!”
“I found Esther to be capable and competent with handling the introduction of my dog to the other two dogs in her care. She has the experience to deal with dogs of different temperaments. I liked how she handled the animals, read their body language, and set boundaries. She set up a meet and greet beforehand, and was very responsive in her communication throughout the process. I also felt that her yard and home were safe and secure, and very welcoming for my pup who has some separation anxiety. I could tell she had a great time while she was there. I’m very appreciative for Esther’s care!”
Lai Yung & Winkie C.
“Definitely recommend. Went on a trip and she took care of my dog no problem. Got updates daily through the app or text. Going to return next time we have a trip again.”
“Kudos to Kseniya. She is a fantastic cat sitter. She took wonderful care of my 4 cats. I loved the photos she sent me. I’m sure they were a handful, especially when one got a tummy ache and went outside his litter. She was completely understanding. My cats enjoyed their stay so much, they did not want to come home ? I initially only asked her to watch the 2 older ones, but when I asked about also including 2 younger kitties, she was kind to accept my request. I highly recommend her. Thanks Kseniya!!!”
“Chrstna took wonderful care of my 4 mo. old puppy for 5 days. And believe me, he's a handful! Bless her heart for being patient with potty mistakes, etc that puppies have. She taught him some tricks, he got some socialization from hanging out with her 2 very well behaved and gentle dogs, and received great exercise going on walks and playing! She updated me daily with fun pictures and videos. I can NOT say enough wonderful things about this experience, it exceeded my expectations. So if you need a trusted sitter, do not hesitate to use Chrstna's service, she was absolutely AWESOME. My puppy came home happy for his experience. Thank you so very much!, 5 stars all the way!”
“Jesselle was great with communication and taking care of our cats while we were out of town. She shared multiple text updates to how they were adjusting, as well as photos and videos which was very much appreciated! The set up she has at her home is perfect for cats who are boarding. We will definitely reach back out to Jesselle for future boarding needs!!”
“Robert is an AMAZING sitter! He takes super good care of the dogs and ensures that they are all doing well. He spends time with them and treats them as if they were his own. He has handled dogs of all sizes and breeds and really enjoys it. He really listens to what your pets needs are. He sends regular updates to let you know how your dog is doing. His house is set up for any type of dog. Its a dog's paradise. While my dog was staying with Robert he noticed something with my dog that needed to get looked at with a vet. I didnt notice it at all. I was able to get it all handled at the vet as soon as I picked up my dog. If he didnt tell me about it I dont know how long it would have taken me to notice it.”
“I’ve never used pet boarding before, but Mary was very patient with my many questions from this anxious kitty mama. I also was able to visit the dedicated cat room, which was very nice and had everything that Mr. Knightley needed. She updated me during my trip with many photos and videos, and as I was especially concerned about how he was eating gave detailed answers on that. He seemed relaxed in the photos and videos she sent, and she was attentive about how he was doing behaviorally. I’ll be back with Mr. Knightley and my new kitten next month. Highly highly recommend Mary for cat boarding - I really trust her for providing excellent care for my cats!”
“Gabriel was awesome! He sent me daily picture updates and stayed engaged with me during the whole time I was home. His home provided a great space for both of my dogs to play, sleep, and take daily walks in a safe clean environment. I will definitely use him again on the future!”
“Very accommodating to my dogs needs. Always sent updates with pictures and videos. Definitely recommend!”
“Sarah was great about communication around our booking, and during my dog's booking! We got updates, and it seems like our dog had a lovely visit. :)”
Unnikrishnan & Smitha K.
“An amazing family. They all greeted me and my dog at the door. Their personalities and caring was amazing. They sent me updates during my trip. They also went above and beyond by giving me a health update when I picked her up. (My dog likes to eat plants) AND they texted me the day after. Super happy!”
“I have observed Vincent consistently attending to the needs of his two canine companions on a daily basis. He ensures that they adhere to a timely restroom schedule and accompanies them on regular walks. Demonstrating a commendable level of responsibility, he caters to the unique requirements of his elderly dog, ensuring her perpetual comfort and providing her with essential care. Simultaneously, he attends to the energetic nature of his younger canine companion, a puppy, by facilitating daily walks and engaging in play to expend her excess energy. Vincent exhibits an exceptional sense of attentiveness in his role as a dog caregiver. His conscientious approach extends to dogs with varying needs, be it elderly, youthful, or those with special requirements. I confidently recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a dog sitter, as his commitment to the well-being of his pets is both evident and praiseworthy.”
About: We're a family of animal lovers! My husband and I have been taking care of animals, especially dogs, for the majority of our lives. I've volunteered at animal shelters over the last 20 years plus we have two dogs of our own, one of which is 18 years old. We still spoil her as much as we can and she's still loving her trips to the dog park. If you have a senior dog, we have plenty of experience there! I work from home full time and my husband is a stay-at-home dad so we have plenty of time to ensure your furbaby is well taken care of. We love trips to the dog park and daily walks at Lake Chabot. We have a fenced yard and two large crates which can be used at night. Our pups love alternating their time between being inside and out in the yard so we just let the dogs decide how to spend their day. 😊
“Brian is AMAZING with dogs. He has 3 dogs of his own (the size of your dog will never be an issue!) ranging from 20 pounds to 100 pounds. As he's been caring for these dogs for quite some time, they've gotten to a point where they have special needs such as medications, a special diet, or a constant need to be let out (one of his dogs has been diagnosed with cancer sadly.......). He has genuine interest in the canine world as he's in tune to experts such as Cesar Milan, Cali K9, and has attended training sessions WITH Cali K9 and K9 Comrades. He can create a loving yet structured environment for your furry friend with lots of treats and pets along the way..... A more-than-qualified sitter/walker for your dog!”
“If you need someone who can pay attention to details, Dean is your sitter. He will thoroughly read the profile of your pet and follow it to the “T”. If he is not clear about something, he will ask. He takes his sitting job very seriously. Your pet is safe with him.”
