"we've been using
for approx 5 years now. We have always had a wonderful experience. Our two cats always seem so unfazed by our return" after a trip. To us, that means they were so well cared for they hardly noticed we were gone. I can't recommend this company enough. Thanks!

"I was gone for 18 days, and
provided a written report of every visit which I read upon my return. Additionally, I reached out to her twice" by email while I was away, and she responded promptly with details. My cats were content and relaxed when I returned home, so I know they were well looked after while I was away. I appreciated the pre-interview process which assured me of the professionalism and consistency of service. (The same caretaker comes every day.)
seems to genuinely love animals and asked smart questions about ensuring the safety of my home, too. I will definitely use Whiskers & Tails again.

Tips for Hiring a Qualified Pet Sitter

Many pet owners choose private pet sitters over animal boarding kennels when facing an extended vacation or business trip.

6 Questions to Ask About Your Pet Sitter

Hiring a pet or house sitter means inviting a stranger into your home. One highly rated provider shares six questions you should ask yourself before the hire.

Always remember to make sure that you or your dog's groomer cuts the fur closely to the eye area to avoid buildup. (Photo by Lacey Rabalais)

We have previously boarded our dog when we take a family trip, but with the recent addition puppy, and overall feeling that boarding wasn't great, we decided to look into in home pet sitting.
Thanks to great reviews on Angie's List, we chose

. They communicated urgently and effectively, and scheduled an in home consultation and meeting. They spent a good amount of time in our home, meeting our pets and us, and made sure everybody was comfortable. They answered all questions, and thanks to years of experience, knew the questions that we didn't know to ask. By the time they left, we were super comfortable with them helping to watch our animals.
The night before we left, our cat became very sick. I informed

and

, and they were quite accommodating.
While we were gone, they took great care of our animals and sent us updates, and even a couple pictures. It was great to know that our animals were in the comfort of their own home.
Prices were fair, communication great, and the personal touch to their business makes you comfortable with

She is very professional and organized. She was also very quick in responding to me and helping me get on her schedule. I trust her to come to my house and walk Daisy.

Penny has been the best pet sitter I have used because she cares about the quality of her work, she cares about my dog, and she cares about my satisfaction and my willingness to trust her with my senior golden. Penny frequently takes care of my dog and I know he loves her and is well-cared for. He's always happy to see her. I travel a lot for business and I never hesitate to have Penny in my house taking care of my dog and you shouldn't either.

provided amazingly good service, as always. We have relied on them to care for our pets while we are away from home for over 10 years. Upon return from our most recent trip in May 2015, we once again found our cats and home to be in pristine condition. I love the highly descriptive notes they leave after each visit. We have complete confidence in

and we recommend them highly to anyone who needs a pet sitting service.

It went very well.
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and her partner in the business visited our house a few days in advance to discuss what had to be done and to meet the cats. They were both very good with the cats -- particularly the one who is normally afraid of strangers. (Needless to say, that's the cat who needed the medication.) The asked good and relevant questions and let me see their insurance and bonding documents.
The visits also went well.

wrote a daily log as she visited, and the log suggested things went well. Our kitties were quite happy when we returned, their food and water was full, the litter boxes were cleaned. All in all it was quite successful. We will use

again!

I wrote the previous review of Brookly and
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
but wanted to set the record straight now. We have used Brooklyn frequently for dog sitting for about 6 months. We usually booked for long weekends only. We planned an 8 day vacation in February and contracted with Brooklyn for 3 visits per day. Her website and FB page both say these visits will be 30 min each. We also asked that she use our alarm system since this was a long trip. The alarm system monitors, to the second, arming and disarming. We were very disappointed by what this monitoring revealed. She was hired from evening of 2/11 to morning of 2/19 and these are the details of her visits. On 2/12, my geriatric (10 and 12 years old) dogs were left alone overnight for more than 12 hours, which I had specifically asked her not to do. Her second visit that day was 3 minutes long. On 2/13 she came only TWICE (I paid 3 visits daily). On her second visit and last visit of the day, she spent ONLY 3 minutes to allegedly feed, replenish water, and potty the dogs. On 2/14 the dogs were again left alone overnight for more than 12 hours. On 2/15 the dogs were again left alone for more than 12 hours (Almost 14 hours) overnight and again she came only TWICE (I paid for 3 visits daily). At this point I was pretty stressed while on vacation. I sent her a text in the afternoon of 2/15 asking how the house temperature was (we had remotely turned it up) and she said fine—but I knew she didn’t actually go in the afternoon based on the alarm events calendar. She lied. At this time I took the opportunity to again remind her that the dogs should not be left alone more than 12 hours. I then called my parents, who live 1.5 hours away, and they drove up in bad weather the next day to take over watching the dogs. I let Brooklyn know there was a change of plans and they were coming into town. I did not let her know the reason for this, as she still had our house key, garage code, and alarm key fob. She reimbursed us $100 of the $260 we had paid. (We had given her a $20 tip) Once we were home, I asked Brooklyn to meet with us. She was unable to fit a face to face meeting into her calendar, so I let her know of my dissatisfaction via text. I wanted to meet in person to give her the opportunity to apologize and to justify her actions. She admitted via text that she works another job and was unable to “hold up her end of the bargain.” However, she allegedly has someone to fill in when she is unable, so this excuse is really unacceptable. Brooklyn made a serious error in judgment and we will not be hiring her again. She also essentially stole money as she was paid, and tipped, to complete 3 visits daily. I hope that she is able to learn from this experience and will choose not to neglect anyone’s pet or pets again. It is completely deplorable to neglect animals and we did not find her trustworthy. Brooklyn “worked” a total of 73 minutes over a 4 day period, which makes her payment rate $131/hr and means my dogs got less than 20 minutes of her attention for the entire day. DISARMED/ARRIVE ARMED/LEAVE 2/11 N/A 9:59:31pm 2/12 10:13:05am 10:26:41am (13minutes) 4:22:33pm 4:25:21pm (3 minutes) 11:25:17pm 11:34:43pm (8 minutes) 2/13 10:55:02am 11:04:32am (9 minutes) 7:28:35pm 7:31:28pm (3 minutes to feed, water and potty the dogs?!)

Brooklyn is wonderful! I've been trying to find the right dog sitter (and we have tried several!). Brooklyn is by far the most enthusiastic and obviously genuinely a pet lover. She is also very reasonably priced. She's very responsive. We have had her come to our home two times now for long weekend sittings. On the second trip, my deck stairs and railing were being rebuilt and she had to take my dogs out in the yard on leashes. They are not great on leashes, so I know this was a bit of an inconvenience...but Brooklyn didn't seem to mind at all. She brings my mail in also. Most importantly, I trust that my boys are in good hands and that it is safe to allow Brooklyn to have a key to my home! I would recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter and have already given her information to several of my friends.

We have two cats and use ST&P for our vacations. They are, seriously, the best we've ever used. Communication before setting up services is thorough and includes a house visit to meet not only you, but the pet(s).
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has an extensive questionnaire and asks detailed questions about the care you desire and the animals, including their personalities and quirks. An example being our
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. She's very shy and the typical 'scardy cat' around strangers and the unknown. ST&P are familiar with handling this kind of pet and before long, even
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was coming out to visit! Being slightly OCD, I also type out a list of details regarding food amounts, locations, etc., and leave that for the sitter, but I know that I really don't need to do this, as the forms and interview with
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
covers everything. It just makes me feel a little more secure about their care and
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
graciously humors me. The pet sitter completes a form of the details of each visit, and this last time,
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
filled in when
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had a medical emergency. We loved the little details and humor
Columbus Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
gave of her visits! In addition, if you'd like, they will take pictures of your pets during their visits and text them to you. We love this and gives us even more peace of mind while we're gone. Highly recommend this company and am so very appreciative of all they do for our animals while we're away.
