Amshel's Home Pet Sitting Service is the best! I know our dog is in the absolute best care when we are gone due to the love and devotion of the owner Gail. We could not ask for a better pet sitting service, thank you!

We want to thank Gail for taking care of our cavalier King Charles spaniel, Ellie. While my husband and I were excited about our 2 week holiday, we were concerned about how to address the pet sitting question. Gail was both understanding and knowledgeable. We developed a transition plan including a couple play dates and sleepovers prior to the actual trip, so that the change was not overly dramati...

[Member name removed], Thank you so very much for letting me take care of your little girl. She is so sweet and fun. She got along well with my new rescued dog and was a pleasure to have in my home. You are right, there is nothing like the 4 legged child that makes us all happy to share our lives with them. I am looking forward to having her here again this and the next coming month. Again thank y...

Tricia did a great job of walking and entertaining our puppy while we were away. This was so much more cost effective than kenneling the dog. I will definitely use these services again.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The provider walked and played with my 6 month old puppy twice daily for 45 minutes each time ($20/time). She provided fresh water and food as specified.  Fed our 17 yo cat. We were away for a week, but my older daughter was home but working during the day. This was a cost efficient method for our puppy to stay at home where she is most comfortable.

They have been lifesavers for us.  We just moved up here in February from Texas, and we were flying down to Louisiana the middle of March.  I have a small dog, and 2 cats.  I did not want to board them anywhere, it has caused my little dog to be sick.  I called Amshel's panicked the day before we were leaving and she assured me she had the right person.  She sent Lisa out the evening prior and she...

They sent Lisa to our house to take care of our 3 babies.  (2 cats, 1 dog)

Our dogs love going to Amshel's Home Pet Sitting Service, and as the pet's care takers - we love leaving them in her capable hands.  Our dogs Chloe and Sophie return from a vacation at Gail's house practically exhausted from the amount of fun they have.  It literally takes them days to recover from all the playing and fun they have with her and they get so excited as we near her home because they ...

I had never used a pet sitting service before, I relied on kennels and boarding facilities to care for my pets when I was out of town. When I called Amshel's home pet sitting service, I was put at ease immediately. Rebecca was my sitter and when she came out for the consultation I expected her to run.   I have three very rambunctious dogs, who can be sweet, but are usually more than a handful for ...

I love working with Lisa.  She writes a daily log with progress (new cat, warmed up to a stranger slowly), and is patient with animals, with whom she clearly loves working.  She stays with even an unresponsive or shy pet, giving it time to get used to her and have some company.  I like that Amshel's has several employees and that Lisa lives near me (and can get to my house even in lousy weather). ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Lisa fed, watered, talked to and played with cat, and scooped litter for nine days.  She came a week earlier to meet the cat and get paperwork filled out and confirm that her copy of the key worked.

Trisha was wonderful to work with. She came to the house a few days before our departure to pick up keys and find out information on how to care for our cat. She was very detailed in her questions and wrote down my instructions. When we returned, our cat was was happy and the litter box and surrounding area were very clean. We are also planning on hiring them for our next vacation, and I would not...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Amshel's cared for my cat while we were on vacation. The caretaker, Trisha, fed the cat, gave treats, dumped litter and brushed her daily. She also brought in the mail and packages while we were away. The owner, Gail, will match you with a pet sitter to fit your needs.
