I needed a cat sitter last minute when my friend backed out, and Linda was amazing! She has now watched my cats for me twice while I was out of town, and both times I came home to happy kitties with fresh water, clean litter box, and full bellies. She sends me email updates as often as I ask for them, and has proof of insurance. He even taped closed my freezer when my cats somehow managed to open it!
What can I say that hasn't been said. Linda is the most thorough and professional dog sitter I've ever seen. On her initial visit, she takes a comprehensive history of your dog and it's health, how your house works, dog food, medicine, etc.
She has watched my dog at least 5 or 6 times now while I was traveling. Upon my neurotic request, she text msgs me EVERY time she comes to take the dog out and gives me a full report of how it went. And that is three times per day. She is great with doggie medicine, if that need to be given. She even watered the plants and brought the mail in.
Don't even hesitate to call her if you need a pet sitter. Oh and your dog will love her too : )
