417 Pet Sitting has been our ONLY pet sitter since we moved here 3 years ago. We have 3 dogs, one who has horrible anxiety. We had been asked not to bring her back to the 'puppy retreat' we used to take them where we used to live. She simply caused to much damage. Since we have had 417 Pet Sitting come to our home, there has been zero damage. We go out of town 4-5 times a year, sometimes for short trips, and sometimes for 2 weeks at a time (over the holidays). Not only are our pet's taken care of, but the garden is picked (if needed), mail is brought in, and plants are watered. We have the additional peace of mind that not only are our dogs in their own environment, we also have a presence in our home, leaving it less vulnerable to break-ins. This summer, we had a family emergency, and had to leave town within hours. It was nice to be able to call 417 Pet Sitting, and know that someone would be there in time for the dog's to have dinner. During our 10 day trip for Christmas, we got pictures of our dog's in front of the Christmas tree &amp;amp;quot;wishing us a Merry Christmas&amp;amp;quot;. Our sitter also texted us several updates of the dogs, and a picture of the 2 cat's playing among the presents. In short, we are lucky to have found 417 Pet Sitting. We are able to leave town knowing that our pet's and our home are in good hands. And if the puppies could talk, I'm sure they would say they enjoy the spoiling too!
We entrusted Amanda and 417 Pet Sitting to care for our dogs over a week while we visited family last summer. I’ve always considered my two doxies a little high maintenance, plus we have a cat who wanders indoors/outdoors. My animals seemed calm, unfazed and relaxed when we returned home- a far cry from trips that sent them to a typical kennel. It was clear they barked and cried the entire time they spent “institutionalized.” Being able to stay in their home was reassuring to the dogs and gave me peace of mind. Amanda would text photos of them to my phone to reassure me they were comfortable. Plus my house also had a “sitter.” Each room was as I had left it with no dirty clothes or dishes strewn about. I was more than satisfied with my experience with 417 Pet Sitting and will hire Amanda again.
I have used 417 Pet Sitting for nearly 5 years. We have two rescued Great Danes one of which was severely abused before coming to us. He is naturally shy around people and has separation issues and anxiety. He adores owner and operator Amanda. We have never had any trouble or problems with her service or care of our animals. She follows the boys very strict daily routine to the letter. We receive pix and updates of our boys when on vacation. Plus we have the piece of mind knowing our home, valuables, and family is safe when we can not be there. Our home is left like we never left and the boys do not have the stress of being away from their environment and family. I would NEVER consider leaving town without calling 417 Pet Sitting for my home and animal care!!
