This was Gary's second sit with us and we would welcome him back as many times as he wants to sit! He took exellent care of Ollie, kept us informed about Ollie's day and we came back to a clean house. Highly recommend Gary as a conscientious, caring sitter.

I love your Ollie . Your location n community are excellent .
Gary was an excellent sitter for our dog, Ollie. He has wonderful communication skills, and kept in touch with us while were gone to let us know how Ollie was doing. He came a day early to learn about Ollie's schedule and made it a point to be there so he could feed Ollie his dinner that night. He took us to and from the airport and we came home to a happy dog and a clean house, Definitely would recommend Gary as a sitter!

Gary made us feel comfortable leaving our cat for a few weeks. He was attentive and communicated often. The house was in great shape when we returned and he even left some homemade spaghetti sauce for us!

Gary is an outstanding sitter. Our fur babies loved him instantly and we immediately felt very comfortable with him too. He arrived the night before so we could get an early start which was great! He communicated daily and with pics, which was wonderful. When we arrived home, our girls, Dixie and Duchess we're happy to see us and our home was neat and clean and we were excited to see dinner in the frig prepared by our wonderful sitter, Gary. We were very fortunate to have Gary sit for us. The ... MORE

Gary was great! He arrived the evening before we left so we could show him around and he could become acclimated to our pets. We enjoyed getting to know him over burgers :-DThroughout the week he communicated regularly, sending texts and photos. Our dog is pretty leery of new people, but Gary was very patient with him. And our cat spent lots of time in his lap, so she approved as well . We came home to a clean house and happy pets—what more could you ask for?! Thanks again Gary!

We received an email everyday, providing updates on our fur babies and our house. We truly enjoyed meeting Gary, and would recommend him to anyone.

No rating Gary was a great house and pet sitter! He arrived the night before we left so we were able take our time going over all the details of caring for our goats, chickens, and cats. It was good to get to know him and we found we had a love of baseball and homebrew in common. We appreciated that he kept in daily communication by email and gave us updates on how the animals were doing while we were gone. Upon our return, the house was tidy and the animals were happy. We would certainly have Gary ... MORE

No rating This was our 1st time using a sitter for our beloved Ruby. Gary did an awesome job taking care of Ruby and our home. He sent us daily updates which we so appreciated and enjoyed. Our house was immaculate when we returned home and he even left some of his delicious pasta sauce for us to enjoy at dinner knowing that we had traveled all day. Gary was great and Ruby was actually very sad to see her new buddy go. I recommend Gary and hope that he is available to us for future sits.
