I have used this service several times in the past few months, always with good results. I have 2 older dogs who require medication twice a day. Kennels have become too stressful for them, and they always came home with problems. This service has been great for them. I get text messages regularly from the sitter, my dogs love them, and I can be away from home with peace of mind!

It went fantastic!!!
did a great job with my kitties. They were very content when we arrived home, everything was in order and clean. I was thrilled. Two nights ago, my house alarm went off and I checked in with her to see if she noticed anything strange with the alarm system. Without me asking (at a very late time of night, she told me she wanted to go over and check on my cats because the alarm was going and the police were there. She cared about how my cats were during the stress. That meant everything to me. She went way beyond what was expected of her to care for my babies.
Another great thing is that when I checked on the cats during the time away, she always got back to me and was warm and kind about my kitties.
If you knew how I am with my cats, you would know that how someone else treats them and talks about them is really important to me. I would highly recommend her and look forward to many more times away feeling at peace knowing my babies are cared for and loved.

Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
is great with my dogs! She has taken them to a private dog park that I have a membership to and each time the dogs come home happy and worn out. She is wonderful with them and they are very excited and love it when she comes. It is wonderful to have someone I can trust available to take them on an outing or check on them. I know and trust that she will take very good care of them. I will continue to use her services!

We have three dogs of our own and at the time of service had a fourth dog (helping a friend who had gone overseas). We were going on a much needed vacation and were looking for a pet sitter. A colleague referred him and I also found his company on Angie's List with great reviews. We decided to give them a shot and we are real glad that we did.

came over to meet us and the dogs. They took down detailed instructions (we had a ton of those). We requested them to let the dogs out at 6:30 AM, feed them and walk them after breakfast, walk them at 5:30 PM, come back to the house at 8:30 pm, spend some time with the dogs and let them out around 9 pm. We also requested they stay the night. They were very punctual and texted us everyday letting us know how the dogs were doing.

even walked from the gate to our house to take care of the dogs. That is going beyond expectations. I will happily recommend them to all my friends. I can now plan future vacations in peace knowing that the dogs will be well cared for. The dogs looked absolutely relaxed and happy when we got back. They indeed provide AWESOME pet care!!

needed thyroid medication administered as well as the usual litter box cleaning, fresh food and water. We asked her to keep the skimmer basket clean from the pool and to take in mail daily. We asked for a daily commentary on her visits. She did all of this.

Everything went as scheduled, my animals were fine when we returned home. The sitter contacted us once with a question, I would not have minded if she had checked in more to let us know they were alright. But good price and reliable service!

She was friendly and professional. She answered all my questions. I found out she has lots of experience and it made me feel very comfortable having her take care of Piper. The rates are reasonable and I think our home and cat will be well taken care of during our vacation. I will review again after we return. So far I am very surprised and happy about how easy it was to set up service. Thanks!

I would NEVER hire
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
again to watch our animals for us (and would never recommend that she watch anyone's animals). We had used her in the past and thought that she took great care of our animals while we were away other than the fact that she did not clean up their feces along the side of the house. So, we hired her for our last trip away (Wednesday PM to Sunday AM) after making sure that we were very clear that she was to go out with them when she took them out and pick-up after them every time (we do not have a large area for them to use the bathroom and we're very close to our neighbors so we try to keep it very clean).
When we returned, there was old feces on the side of the house so I text
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
to let her know and she assured me that she went outside with them every time and that she had just picked up after them that morning (the day we arrived home). She said that we did not need to pay for services that we were not happy with and offered to drop our keys off. I did not reply immediately as we were busy picking up the house. In the meantime, I went upstairs to feed our cats and saw that she did not feed them on the tray that we provided. Instead, she just opened to cans of cat food and set it on our antique dresser. The dogs obviously tried getting up there to eat it because the wood was extremely scratched. So, instead of emptying the cans on the tray that we always use and locking the dogs out so the cats could eat, she just put them up on the dresser and left them. The cans are small so the cats could only eat the very center. We got to throw away two perfectly good cans of cat food when we got home. Also, the cats could have been cut on the sharp metal can she left out for the to try to eat out of. This was just one example of how lazy she was when she was watching our animals. After discovering the cat food and damaged dresser, I replied and asked her to return our keys.
All of this prompted me to watch the videos of her visit (we have a camera located in plain site in our living room). What I saw was shocking. When we hired her the first time to stay at the house and watch the animals for us, she said that she was there from 7pm to 7am every day and that she also took them for a walk mid-day. This is definitely not the case.
Wednesday she did not get to the house until 8:30 pm. She let them out, fed them, then sat on the couch until she went to bed. She never even let them out again before bed. She just put them in their kennels and went upstairs. On Thursday, she got up early, let them out, fed them, put them in their kennels and then left at 8:30. She did not return until 9pm! Again, she let them out, fed them and then sat at the table until she was ready for bed. She put them in their kennel and then went upstairs (did not take them out). On Friday, she was gone by 7:30 and did not come back to the house until 8pm. She let them out and then got straight on the couch. She stayed there until she was ready for bed. She never fed them dinner!!! She also didn't let them out again. She just came in, laid on the couch and then went to bed at 10pm. On Saturday, she was up and out by 6:30 and did not return to the house until 9pm!!! Our dogs were locked up for almost 15 hours. She came in, let them out, fed them, laid on the couch for an hour and then put them back in their kennel and went to bed. On Sunday, she got up at 6 something, let the dogs out by themselves and went in to the bathroom. She left them unsupervised outside while she went back and laid down on the couch to go to sleep. Their scratching at the door must have got her up. She went to the restroom and then decided she'd let them back in. As she was walking to the door, she was yelling at them "stop." Then, when she let them in, she raised her voice and told them to settle down. Then she went straight back to the couch to go back to sleep. She raised her voice at the dogs again to leave her alone (said "NO!"). She went to sleep for a while and then got up and fed them. She got ready, let them out again by themselves while she loaded her stuff in her car. So, again, she was no where around if one of them were to have fallen in the pool. She opened the door to let them in and
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
didn't come. Instead of her walking her lazy butt out there, she told Bruges and
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
to "go find
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
." Yeah right. Luckily,
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
finally came in. She has gotten out under the gate before which is another reason why we told
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
not to let them out by themselves.
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
left the house on Sunday just after 8am.
The entire time she was watching our animals, she maybe pet Bruges twice...never
Houston Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
that I could see (she only pet Bruges when Bruges got in her face and pretty much forced her), she never once played with them, she never once pet the cats, and she NEVER walked them. She showed them absolutely no attention or affection at all. She walked in (or got up), let them out, then either got ready and left or laid on the couch until bed. They were typically only let out twice a day! I was so shocked and disappointed. We are unbelievably upset at seeing how mistreated our animals were while we were away. The whole reason why we wanted someone to stay at the house was so that the animals could get plenty of attention while we were away. We thought this would be much better for them than being in a kennel. We were wrong.
I want her current and future clients to know of our experience because if she did this with our animals, I'm guessing she does this with all of her clients. She did nothing that she said when we originally hired her. There were no mid-day walks, she was never at the house by 7pm, she was not affectionate at all... I still can't believe that she didn't get home until 9pm on Thursday and Saturday. We would never leave our dogs locked up that long and so do not expect our pet sitter (who we're paying!) to do it. She didn't do anything we asked in our instructions (like asking her to make the dogs sit and wait for their food). She just plopped their bowls on the ground and then went back to the couch. I was shocked at how lazy she was the entire time she was there. I was more shocked that from watching the videos, you would think that she didn't like animals at all.
We did not pay for her services this time which is why I put N/A for cost.

is not truthful with her clients, her husband does daytime visits while she is at work (contrary to what she tells you and what is on her website). Very nice lady up front but needs to be truthful upfront with her clients. One example is she makes it seem as though she is at other houses when really she is at work and tries to get updates from her husband before returning your call. She quoted us a competitive price initially (2 months before the scheduled visits and again 3 weeks) and the day before we left she needed the payment to which it was drastically increased, we felt pinched and went ahead with it. It was such a mess that we had to ended the visits with her. I'll just say there are too many negatives to list from my experience, never again with these people.
