Jeff is a very responsible gentleman with class who did a great job taking care of our home and 2 Aussies wile we spent 20 days in Hawaii. He kindly transported my wife I to and from the Ontario, CA Airport for our trip and sent us daily photos of our dogs. He helped out with cleaning up a mess of two downed trees and branches on our road when we had some heavy wet snow the day before our trip. He even made some delicious spaghetti sauce for us to have when we returned. Our pets and home ... MORE

Walt & Kris, Your compliments are greatly appreciated. I enjoyed the sit, and will miss Hahn and Laia. If further sits are planned, then I will be grateful for your calls! Best, Jeff
Jeff was amazing! It was a huge relief to know that our dog was in his excellent care. He treated our dog and home perfectly and went above and beyond in both categories. We very much appreciate having the chance to meet him and could not be more grateful for his help. We would not hesitate to recommend him for any sitting opportunities and we would definitely welcome him back into our home if the opportunity arises.

Kevin & Julie, I am grateful for your kind comments, and appreciate the chance to care for your home and Luna. Cheers! Jeff
Jeff was an excellent sitter for our house and our three cats. The house was very clean when we returned and he even prepared a special meal for us based on his grandmother's recipe. In addition, our garden was doing well as he watered the plants while we were gone. We were fortunate to spend some time together before and after our trip to Mexico and enjoyed his company. We also enjoyed the daily updates that he sent us regarding the cats. I can recommend him whole heartily to anyone seeking a ... MORE

Chris and Ron, our kind words are touching, and gratefully received, It was both a privilege and a pleasure to care for your pets and home. Best Wishes! Jeff
Five star paw-sitively amazing! Jeff went above and beyond caring for our feline kiddos, Sylvi and Luci, while we were away. They were purring contentedly upon our return, a clear sign of his loving attention. But Jeff's care extended far beyond just our furry friends. Our plants thrived under his watchful eye, and the house looked great when we walked back in. He truly gave us peace of mind knowing everything was in good hands. We can't recommend Jeff enough for anyone seeking a responsible, ... MORE

Larry & Debbie Jo, Your very kind words are gratefully received. I would deeply enjoy sitting for Sylvi and Luci again! Best Personal Regards, Jeff
Jeff is trustworthy, responsible, and very loving to critters. This was his second sit for us, and he demonstrated remarkable flexibility when our trip was cut short and we returned home half way through his planned stay. Jeff met us with a fabulous meal, letting us deal with our unpacking and settling in. Jeff continued to help with the critters and cooked a few delicious meals. We appreciate Jeff and think you will, too!

Thank you for your very kind words, Sharon & David! Best Wishes! Jeff
Jeffery Brooks wonderfully cared for our pets, chickens, and home. He is responsible, trustworthy, and fun. Jeff impresses us with his willingness to flex, serve, learn systems—all with good humor. He cheerfully met our expectations with kindness and affection for our animals and care for our home. From our first contact, Jeff communicated well and asked good questions. Throughout our travels he informed us about our pets and home, including daily photos. On our return we were met with fresh ... MORE

Jeff was a great house sitter. Our dogs took to him immediately. We got pictures of our dogs every day. I would strongly recommend Jeff to anyone.

Both Zack and I are delighted to have had Jeff to take care of Zack and house. Jeff was wonderful about keeping me supplied with news and photos of Zack. Jeff also did some great handyman jobs. Truly above and beyond.... I hope we will have a repeat soon. Thank you Jeff., Zack misses you.
SOPHIA ( Florida, Oct 2023 - 1 month 1 week)
This is my first time using a pet house sitter and I was more than satisfied. Jeff was gracious enough to come a couple of days before my departure to make sure Winston and he were a good fit. Winston took to Jeff the minute Jeff arrived. His early arrival also gave me time to help my goats and him to become familiar with each other. During my trip, Jeff sent me pictures and sometimes short videos of Winston and my goats every day via text and email. When I returned, it was obvious Jeff had ... MORE
