I had gone through a few pet sitters the first year that I had my beautiful german shepherd daughter, Luna. I was worried I’d never fine someone truly reliable, knowledgable, and loving. When we found Kristen, we not only found a great pet sitter, we found a new family member. I don’t know what we would do without her. She is invaluable!
Praise for Pet Sitting by Kristen
"We not only found a great pet sitter, we found a new family member."
What can I say? Kristen is AWESOME. She is a very sweet, loving person and my fur babies adore her! She is very reliable and accommodating and is always there when my babies and I need her! I would highly recommend her and I am so glad I found her! I will not use anyone else! I know that if my Murphy, Petey, Maxi, Ruby and Turbo could speak they would concur!!!! XOXOXO
We first contacted Kristen the weekend before my son was born. We needed to find a reliable, trustworthy and competent sitter for our dog…and we needed to find one quick! We were worried about the process at first but after the first call with Kristen we were put at ease. She was knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. More importantly, our dog loved her from the minute they met. Kristen saved us that weekend! We were able to go away knowing that our dog was well taken care of. She even sent regular text updates knowing we were anxious about leaving him. Kristen still walks our dog every week. She is always there when we need her, even if it’s a last minute call. When we tell our dog that Kristen is coming! he jumps on the bed and stares out the window until he sees her car, then he runs to the door to greet her. It is a rarity these days to find someone in the service industry that you can rely on unconditionally…but Kristen is that rare person.
Kristen took such good care of my kitties when I had to go on business trips. She would come daily to feed and play with them. I liked how she would send me text message updates. It was a positive experience for the kitties, they were more relaxed when I returned and not so clingy. Kristen also did little extras unasked that were really a treat for me – taking the recycling out to the curb is one that comes to mind. Since I moved out of state we no longer have Kristen as our petsitter – I only hope I can find someone as good in our new area.
I was VERY apprehensive about having a stranger come into my home – without my presence – to handle my temperamental little Cocker Spaniel mix who has a proven history of disliking most people except me. As soon as Kristen came over to meet Cocoa and me for the first time, my fears were instantly put to rest. Kristen’s calm, gentle, yet knowledgeable manner put both of us at ease immediately, and within minutes my little monster was curled next to her snoozing! They’ve become fast friends, and nothing makes me happier than getting texts and pictures from Kristen during the day, assuring me that not only are my dog’s needs being met, he’s also having a blast with his new buddy! I couldn’t give Kristen a higher, more glowing recommendation. She has gone above and beyond for Cocoa and me, and it is very evident that her first priority is the well-being of the animals. She has been a blessing and a major stress-reliever! Thank you Kristen!!
When it comes to our two cats, I wouldn’t leave them with just anyone. They are a part of our family and I need to know that they are safe & happy when we’re away from home. I knew right away when I met Kristen that she was the pet sitter for me. She totally understands my attachment to my cats and makes sure that they are well taken care of when we’re away for a weekend or for an extended vacation. She keeps in touch with me via text or e-mail just to let me know how they’re doing and also sends pictures of them to put my mind at ease, or just to make me smile because I always miss them so much. It’s a comfort knowing that Kristen is there to not only take care of the little things, like bringing in the mail, rotating the lights, watering the plants, but the most important thing, taking such good care of our two beloved kitties. I would recommend her services to anyone… she’s great!
From the minute we met Kristen I knew she was the one to take care of my dog, Bailey, and my cats, Nicky and Snoopy. Shes sweet, caring and very trustworthy. My daughter is on a travel team and we go camping alot. I know my pets are safe and happy with Kristen. She goes out of her way to make sure you know they are doing good. She sends us pics of them and texts me each day. If your like me… my pets are just like my kids to me..then Kristen is for you! She’s great!!
Kristen and I met quite by accident. She was pet sitting a dog in our townhouse complex. I had a good feeling about her from the moment I met her and she proved my feelings right. We left our high anxiety George with Kristen. I was more worried about Kristen because when George sees a squirrel – look out! Not only did Kristen live up to the challenge and was able to take care of him, she texted updates and photos each time she came to take care of George. We were able to enjoy our trip knowing that a loving, caring person was being responsible for our George. I highly recommend Kristen. She obviously loves our pets but she is also knowledgeable and reasonable in her price. She even took in our mail!!
Heidi Is our 17 year old Maine Coon cat. I have always worried about leaving Heidi alone even on overnight trips. Now that we have Kristen to care for Heidi, we can have stress free vacations. Kristen is very loving and does a great job keeping Heidi happy. It takes a very special person to care for the pets we consider part of our families. Heidi will never have to be alone again!
If our cat and 2 dogs could speak they would probably ask if Kristen could be their new mom. She is not only a pet sitter, she is family to a part of our family while we are away. You can immediately tell upon meeting her that she genuinely cares for animals, not only by watching her with them, but by watching them react to her. Our guys loooove Kristen! And that gives us a huge peace of mind when we are away from them. If you have Kristen as your pet sitter consider yourself lucky to have found such a gem!!!
After trying several pet sitters and kennels in the area, we thought that we would not ever be able to go away and feel confident our dogs would be well cared for and happy. Then we found Kristen. She is absolutely wonderful, caring, and hard working. She comes to our house on our schedule, and she has managed to keep our high energy, difficult to please dogs happy in our home for varying lengths of time. We highly reccommend Kristen, we couldn’t be happier with the service she provides!
We have used Kristens pet sitting service for long weekends and seven day vacations with peace of mind. Our Golden Mossimo is a very happy pup when he see’s Kristen at the door. Kristen gives her Love and Care to our Golden as if he were her own pet. Mossimo loves her and we would never want or use anyone else to pet sit for our Golden.
We are thrilled to have found Kristen to care for our boys, our two Shelties. We use her for planned week long vacations, as well as, just an afternoon or evening visit (sometimes unplanned). Kristen is reliable , trustworthy and extremely dependable. She not only treats our Bentley and Bailey as she would her own, but she has also treated our home with great respect. We’ve recommended her to our neighbors and would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
I used to leave for work in the morning and feel guilty that Molly & Sammy (our 2 pugs) would be home alone ALL DAY LONG…until one day I stumbled across Pet Sitting by Kristen and now I know they’ll get some love and attention come the middle of the day every day. Kristen has been great and our pups absolutely adore her (as do we)! Pricing is reasonable and Kristen is flexible. We couldn’t ask for a better dog sitter/walker!!!
