In the past, I was always anxious about going on vacation and leaving my dogs. I boarded them, but my dogs always came home out of sorts and it took a week to get them back to “normal.” I thought my dogs would much rather stay in the comfort of their own home, so I decided to try a pet-sitter for our next vacation. I contacted several pet-sitting companies and found The Pet Gal’s pricing to be very reasonable especially when compared to other companies. I decided to give them a try due to the reviews I read and based on my first communication with Susan.
Before they start pet-sitting, they assign you a Pet Gal who usually lives in your area. This person will be the one who primarily cares for your pets. Our Pet Gal, Beth, came over before we left for vacation to meet us and our dogs. She also was able to ask questions and after the meeting we felt very comfortable with Beth. We felt that she cared about our dogs and connected with them immediately. We have now used The Pet Gal several times (for long and short vacations) and every time has been awesome. I am no longer anxious about leaving my dogs because I know they will be well taken care of. Beth and another Pet Gal, Amy, have both cared for our dogs and they are amazing. We have them come twice a day, which is a good amount for our dogs.
I absolutely love getting the updates and photos from them on a daily basis. It puts my mind at ease and allows me to enjoy my vacation. Plus, it is nice because they pick up the mail and put away your trash can, too! I would not hesitate in recommending The Pet Gal. Absolutely wonderful!
