Marylou and Michael

"I have a senior dog that needs some extra attention and they were fantastic! They sent me pictures while I was away. They made sure he was fed and received all of his medications. They were available last minute and even made time to stop by and introduce themselves before the job. They made it much easier to leave my fur baby because I knew he was in good hands!

Marylou and Michael were top shelf on all counts for our short house/cat sit. Will not hesitate reach out for our future needs. Thx to both of you.
KEN ( Arizona, Oct 2022 - 3 days)
Marylou and Michael are wonderful! We left our house, puppy, and cats in their care and it was a great experience! They are very professional people. They took care of everything so that we could enjoy our trip. I would use them again in a heartbeat and look forward to working with them in the future. They are reliable and trustworthy. Very positive experience!

Thank you for the wonderful review, Cori! Let's definitely keep in touch about your December travel. If the dates work out, we would absolutely love to help again Regards, Marylou and Michael
Marylou and Michael took such loving care of our doggie (plus my daughter's dog added last minute). They were so accommodating and certainly left our apartment spotless. Highly recommended!
