Pet Sitting reviews in Houston
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.
I would definitely recommend D'
When we returned, there was old feces on the side of the house so I text
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
The entire time she was watching our animals, she maybe pet Bruges twice...never
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.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
