Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Reviews

"Excellent and responsive service for my dog. Took him on walks and played with him as well as refreshing food and water. I have used this service many times and have always been very pleased with their care of my dog and their attention to detail in making sure everything was right in my home.

began by sending a representative to our house to describe the service, meet our cat, and take notes on where we keep our food and litter box. We appreciated that
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
sent the same person that would be doing the actual visits so that we knew who would be taking care of our pet. Our sitter was extremely friendly and after meeting her, we felt very comfortable with her coming to our home while we were away during the holidays. We also liked that

does not hold onto house keys; instead, they require the use of a lock box placed on the front door. This means that
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
won't

your keys (which has happened to us before with another company) and if your sitter is sick someone else can still check on your pet.

will even provide the lock box for a refundable deposit fee. The service itself was exactly what we wanted for a low price -- scoop the litter, put out the food, make sure the cat is okay, give him a few pats, and that's it. We felt that approximately $21 per day was a good deal. The only annoying aspect of
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
service is that they require daily visits. For people with cats that can survive for days at a time without human contact, this makes
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
an inefficient solution.
We thought that our sitter did a great job while we were away. She had no problem learning and dealing with our security system. When we got home, our cat was in fine shape and our sitter had left us notes describing how each visit had gone. The notes were very descriptive and made us feel like she had actually taken the time to care for our cat even though nobody was around to supervise her. The only minor annoyance was that she promised to text us and let us know how the visits were going, and on the first day, she did not send us anything. But, when we texted her to ask how it had gone, she responded quickly, apologized for forgetting, and sent us texts and pictures each day after that. Overall, we were very pleased with
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and would recommend it highly.

"Moved here from Fredericksburg a year ago with 5 cats; 4 semi-feral cats we adopted and one long time pet. Found Au Purr on
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
. Sondi, and then
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
, have looked after the guys on probably 8 occasions now and we could not be more pleased with their service.
They are attentive, reliable and professional and I have complete confidence having them watch our pets and our home.
On at least two occasions our travel plans were suddenly and unexpectedly changed and each time Sondi stepped up and helped us out. Sometimes we don't have a great lead time for requesting a visit and we have been accommodatined with no problem.
I would highly recommend Sondi and Au Purr!

"This was my first try at hiring a professional pet sitter, as I was always apprehensive. Au Purr is different in that they truly understand the unique needs of cats and their owners. Everyone thinks cats are aloof and don't need special attention and play, but they couldn't be more mistaken. I was able to go on my trip without any worry about my furry pals, and as expected, everything went well. Very reasonably-priced. I will definitely use again!

is exceptional, professional and reliable 1,000 times over anyone we have used in the past. She has taken care of our dog many times in the past. She came highly recommended by many in our community. This last time our dog was sick with inoperable
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
cancer. She took great care of our dog, gave her medications, and when she was not eating, she even went home and came back with home made healthy food that the dog loved. She even left some in the refrigerator for feedings after we came back! She is a special lady all around and we highly recommend her!

"We were so happy we found
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
! Some things we really appreciated with their service:
Sondi came by to meet our cats and go over their needs before we left which was excellent. With our previous cat sitter, when we returned home after being away the cats would immediately bolt towards us...starved for attention. So we were pleasantly surprised that when we used
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
as we came through the door our cats barely batted an eye and continued relaxing on the sofa. So we knew they received proper feeding and affection.
Sondi also sent us emails about how the cats were doing which helped put us at ease while on vacation.
I'm recommending
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
to all my friends with cats.

"What I like about
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
Service is that the dog walkers provide a nice summary of what the dog does while they're with them, which is nice to know (number of 1s and 2s, for example), and also gives you an idea of the personality of the person walking your dog. Also, I usually call them with very little advance notice and they find a way to get me the coverage I need.
What I don't like is the price. $23 for a half hour, and once you add in the tip, gets pricey.

"The service at
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
always starts with the schedulers
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
or
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
. Both have always been flexible when it comes to adding last minute services or cancellations. We have worked with a few different dog walkers over the years and all of them have been wonderful and caring.
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
makes every attempt at providing good continuity of care for the benefit of both the pets and the owners. You can always trust that the service will performed, water bowls refilled, the house locked and the pets in good condition. We have been very satisfied customers for the past 7 years.

"We recently were on vacation for a week and
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
took care of our two cats while we were gone. I have complete confidence that my cats are well taken care of while we are away and
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
is always open to any requests I may have. She has taken care of two sets of cats for us over the years as well as visiting dogs. I feel very fortunate to have found such a qualified and caring pet sitter for my pets and highly recommend
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
to anyone I know. My cats are indoor cats and very anxious when strangers come to our home. They are very comfortable with
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
and are happy and content staying home as opposed to going to a kennel or vet hospital. I highly recommend
Alexandria Pet And House Sitters Provider Name Locked
to take the best of care for your pets.
