Amy has always taken great care of Oakley! We've used this company for dog walking and for dog sitting when I leave town. I love the picture updates and Oakley didn't want to leave last time I picked him up! He loves Rocky and Amy! Thank you for helping raise Oakley as I was working 12 hour shifts when he was a baby!
Amy and team took such great care of my Champ. It was obvious they also loved him and he certainly looked forward to daycare on Fridays. I was also very comfortable boarding him knowing he would be well cared for while I was away.
We have been with Amy for about 8 months now and both our doggie alfonso and us love it! Amy and her team go above and beyond. Alfonso was a super scared baby pup and has grown into quiet the little King at Day care. Their facility is always super clean and never overcrowded with dogs. They rotate between outdoors and indoors. Small and bigger dogs are mixed based on temperament. Amy also offers dog walking and boarding, which comes in very handy. Prices are super reasonable for the quality and care received. We hope to use the day care for many years to come :) Happy Dog happy Life
Our dog Bini has been with Amy since he was a puppy, a little over 3 years. We love Amy and her staff! They are very responsible and caring dog lovers. We feel so good about leaving our pet in their more-than-capable hands. :-)
Amy has been caring for our dog bear over the last three years off and on. The care he receives is absolutely impeccable and he always comes home with a good mind (not hyperactive, you can obviously tell he is out playing and being stimulated) which is a huge plus since he's 70lbs and 1/2 Belgian malinois (he needs constant activity stimuli). I always know he's in great hands with Amy and her staff!
Yes my two dogs go to Amy every time and I think they love ? her , even me and my husband very happy and love ? her too
Amy and her staff are amazing. My puppy Kush literally jumps out of the car to go in. My husband and I are very happy with the way Amy and her staff work with Kush. Kudos Amy & Team.
Each and every staff member is more friendly and helpful than the last. I am amazed at how much they care about the animals. They are never in a bad mood, cause they are doing what they love. And guess what, in this incredibly heat wave, they are air conditioned. My dog always comes back confident and happy.
Awesome people, and very understanding and flexible. I had arranged to have Pet Sitting to the Max take care of our cats for a week while we were on vacation, but the day before we were supposed to leave, our plans changed abruptly, and then continued to change several more times over the next few days. Each time something changed in our plans, they were extremely flexible and understanding, and were willing to make changes on their end to accommodate our constantly-changing situation, even picking up our cat from the vet when he got into a nasty fight the day before our trip and had to have a drain put in and cleaned for several days while we were away. Our vacation was much more relaxing and enjoyable, knowing that our pets were being cared for so well!
Great group to work with. Easy to connect, they ask good questions on how to care for your pet, and they set us up with someone who can give meds as well. We have used them twice and no complaints. He even waters the plants and takes out the garbage. Love it!
I highly recommend Amy and her staff at Pet Sitting to the Max. My dog goes about once a week for doggie daycare and she comes home happy and worn out. Every time I've visited the building, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Other clients are friendly and seem pleased with the care given their dogs. Amy will text pictures of my dog throughout the day, which is always appreciated. As an experienced daycare client, the drop-off and pick-up exchange is always fast, easy and efficient--just a quick handoff of the leash. At first, I would ask questions about my dog's day, and the staff was always full of information and willing to chat, but now I really appreciate the quick transaction at the end of a session.
I also found a dog sitter, Lina, through Pet Sitting to the Max. She was amazing! She was patient with all my special requests and followed through with all of them. She was friendly and respectful and aware of my dog's needs. I would absolutely use her again for dog walking or overnight visits.
We've been taking our 8 month old golden doodle here for the last few weeks and she absolutely loves it! We signed up for the 30 day package. Can't beat the price. All the workers are extremely nice and loving to all the dogs. I was sold right away when I did my first walk through to see if it would be a fit for our girl.
I am extremely pleased with Amy and Pet Sitting to the Max for our cats. I have used her several times and will continue to do so without hesitation. She is professional in every way, and our spoiled cats love her! There is no longer a problem planning a trip, enjoying it, or returning home now that we have Amy taking care of our cats. They are happy and very calm when we return, for which I am very thankful. All duties related to the cats and the house are done as requested. I highly recommend her and Pet Sitting to the Max after using various sitters for various pets for over 15 years in Sunnyvale.
As long as I have known Amy she has been my pet expert! She has a passion for animals that just amazes me! She does such a great job! I wouldn't trust my dog with anyone else!
I can't rate Amy's Pet Sitting to the Max high enough. She's professional, generous, considerate, compassionate, always gets back to me in a timely fashion, flexible, and up beat. Hire them. You'll be glad you did. :)
Amy (and her husband) looked after our 2 dogs in her home for a week while we were away! She responded promptly to my initial mail and kept up great contact throughout, including sending photos of the dogs while we were away.
The dogs adored her the moment she arrived for the introductory visit! They arrived home exhausted but very content having spent a week playing non-stop with the other dogs.
What a pleasure knowing your pets are being well cared for while you are away. I can't recommend Amy highly enough
I found Amy & Pet Sitting To the MAX via Yelp. I have a "special" pound puppy who hadn't had a lot of socialization growing up, so it was important to me that I find someone I was comfortable leaving my dog with and that I wouldn't expose him to a kennel or risk him not liking kennel staff.
I had the opportunity to travel for the first time this year since having gotten my dog, and it's great to know he's well taken care off.
Pet Sitting To the Max has since watched my dog three times, the last time resulted in a canceled flight and a last-minute "can you watch him an extra day?" plea. And they came to my rescue!
This review, I regret to say, is LONG overdue for a woman (and the company she owns) who has gained the trust and accolades of THIS nearly neurotic dog mom.
My girl NIbbles turned 14 in May of this year, and was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy in 2010. It's slowly progressed to her having a bit of difficulty getting up (once she's on her feet, she's ok), and since I live in a second-story apartment, this entails carrying her down the stairs and either carrying her back up or boosting her up the stairs by her bottom.
Back in July, I left Nibs in the care of a boarding facility in Sunnyvale whose services I'd used before. While she became mildly ill (diarrhea for a few days) after that first visit, this second visit left her with liquid stools that she sometimes could not control, and difficulty walking. Needless to say, I will not be taking her back there again. (Send me a private message if you want details.)
I work 12-hour nightshifts and could not fathom leaving her alone during her recuperation for the 14 hours I'd be gone, and searched frantically for a dogsitter who would not only come to my apartment to dog sit, but wouldn't mind ferrying my 30-lb mutt up and down the stairs and might have to clean up a mess while she convalesced.
Things in the universe aligned and sent me Amy...and for that, I will be forever grateful.
During her first visit, the customary meet-and-greet, she got down on her hands and knees to say hello to Nibs the first time, which gave me a genuine sense that she really truly cared about Nibbles. She then broke out her notes and asked MANY appropriate questions, regarding meds, bathroom habits, and appropriate toys and treats.. As the visit progressed, I could feel my anxiety at leaving Nibs melting away.
That was back in July. A few months on, and I'm still happily keeping Amy's services for Nibs (we're down to just one walk late at night while I'm at work) and I could not be happier. Amy is communicative, flexible and just a genuinely wonderful, sweet person, both to me and, more importantly, to Nibs.
This is a verbose review, and I thank you for reading this far, but I hope the sheer length of this review helps convey how absolutely wonderful Amy is. If any of you love your dog as much as I do, and are in need of someone to look after your poochster just as lovingly as you do, do yourself and your dog a favor, and hire Amy. You will not regret it...
Our two dogs are our kids and only want the best for them. We searched and tried several pet sitters in the past and none of them really have earned our trust until we found Amy from Pet sitting to the MAX.
Amy is the epitome of a professional, honest, trustworthy, and hardworking pet sitter. She truly loves and cares for our two dogs. She is very knowledgeable about pets and we feel confident that she can handle any emergency situation that arises when we are away. She is also is a volunteer at a local shelter which only shows her true love for animals. Most importantly, Amy is calm. Our dogs look happy and relaxed with her.
I am not keen in writing recommendations, but, in this case, I had to make an exception - I highly recommend Pet sitting to the Max. In fact, my husband has recommended Petsitting to the MAX to his co-workers who turned out to be happy clients.
Now that Amy has taken care of my pets a few times, I feel like I'm at the point where a review is necessary. Bottom line- she does an excellent job. She's responsive to every email or text that I send her (I'm a little annoying). I come home to happy pets and clean litter boxes. She even brought in our trashcans one weekend when we went out of town. She also seems to genuinely enjoy spending time with my pets while I'm gone, and I really appreciate that. She sends me photo updates too, which I really enjoy.
It's nice not having to worry about my "kids" while I'm away, and thanks to Amy, I rarely do.
We found Amy and Deb (Pet Sitting to the Max) thru Yelp and we are so grateful! They are a remarkable duo (plus they have other great staff). A few of us on our street (in palo alto) needed dog walkers and they responded promptly to our inquiry with professionalism and enthusiasm. They have been completely reliable, flexible and generous plus they are fantastic with all our dogs (and their various temperaments). Their fees are competitive to slightly lower than others we looked into. They are bonded and they have animal first-aid credentials. They always text after they've walked the dog (50 min walk, 10 min snuggle) which is great when you are at work wondering how its going. Other of our neighbors have now used them for dog day care and pet sitting. We highly recommend them for all their services!
Excellent experience with Deb and Amy. They took great care of our cats while we were gone. The text updates were wonderful. So glad we found them.
Nothing but positive things to say about Pet Sitting to the MAX!
Last year my doggie daycare location actually lost my dog... yes, lost her! We got a call from a random person saying they had our baby! Needless to say, my search started for a reliable, professional and knowledgeable alternative.
I certainly found all those attributes in this crew. I've been using MAX for daycare, boarding, and walks for over a year. I love their flexibility in scheduling - if I had an emergency, I know they would do everything they could to accommodate.
One of the challenges of my selection process was that many daycares/boarding didn't allow Pit Bull Terriers. Not only is this annoying from a discriminative perspective, but I don't want anyone who has preconceptions about my dog taking care of her anyway! What I liked about MAX is they had experience with Pit Bulls and had even owned one in the past.
I could go on for hours about how awesome Amy, John, Deb, Taylor and team are... but you really should go and meet them yourself and discover your new partner for dog sitting.
When my previous dog walker "fired" me as a customer because I wouldn't agree to hiked up rates, I was SO THANKFUL to find Amy and Pet Sitting to the Max! The moment I met her I could tell she was a fantastic person. I was one of her first customers, and it was clear how much she loved my dog and was committed to making her business a success. Her rates are amazing and her care and love are spectacular. I've also loved the people she's hired. I've also used her doggy day care and boarding services too. I couldn't be happier, and neither could my dog! :)
This review is long over due and cannot do a justice to this amazing woman Amy who is incredibly caring and trustworthy! We reached out to her several months ago as a result of the great reviews on Yelp, and since that day, she has been part of our family. She takes care of our cats, and dog in addition to taking care of our house while we are away. Her love for animals as well as her friendly yet always professional attitude is one of a kind!
I strongly recommend her services.
This review is long overdue.
Amy came to watch over my cats while we took off to Vegas to visit my parents.
From the very beginning when she came over to check out our place and the pets, she was professional, asked all the right questions about feeding, mess, hiding locations, and habits.
Amy was always on time, took pictures of the cats and texted them to me and gave me continuous updates. On our way to Vegas we had gotten into a bad car accident which delayed our return. She was completely flexible and offered to get additional cat food if necessary.
The pricing was more than reasonable, the invoicing was professional... I often felt like I had an in home nurse watching my cats. It was awesome!!!
Thank you Amy!!!
I love this group of fabulous ladies. Since January Deb has been the primary care taker for my little dog, an older rescue who is almost blind, when I work my 12hr shifts. She comes twice a day, and more than once I've gotten comments from strangers in my neighborhood about how well my dog is doing and how happy she looks with her dog walker! What a great compliment to receive from people I've never met!
Deb is so flexible, adds on walks when I get called in, works with my crazy schedule, and always takes great care of my little girl. My pup needs eye ointment before and after each walk, and started off hardly being able to leave the driveway. Now they are walking longer and farther and I couldn't be happier that I never have to worry about my girl.
I'm so grateful to have found Pet Sitting to the Max. :)
Amy is professional, personable, prompt and trustworthy. During the interview process she was really thorough and displayed a passion for what she does. She provides quality and loving care for your pets - her #1 priority is making sure your pets are well cared for. I noted that my dog had a behavioral change and displayed anxiety/fear over her food bowl and I appreciated that Amy worked with my dog and hand-fed her in order to eventually get my dog to eat from the bowl.
While my 2 shih-tzus were in her care, Amy sent updates letting me know that they had gone on their walk, what happened, and any interesting (and cute!) behavior they may have displayed. I loved getting pics of my dogs!
Looking forward to the expansion of Pet Sitting To the MAX as I know many pets (and owners!) will benefit from her services!
I would really like to thank Amy and her husband for taking care of my two dogs during our labor day long weekends. We had been sending them to other pet hotels before. But unlike other hotels where dogs are locked inside their "rooms" and were only taken out for scheduled play time and walks, Amy's place is more like a kindergarden for dogs. She would take photos of them and send them to us during our trip. It was so sweet that she even gave them grades based on their behaviors.
I highly recommend this place and would board my two little guys there again next time we are out of town.
Amy was great. Our cats really like her, and they can be very shy. She gave our cats their meds, texted pictures to us every day and gave us updates. And she watered our plants! We'll definitely use them again.
My dog, Trotsky, has been going to Pet Sitting to the Max for over a year until I recently moved to Denver. I can't say enough about this wonderful team. Amy would send me such cute pictures of him and friends during the day. He would come home so happy after he went to daycare!! I am so appreciative of the care they gave my dog. Trotsky is going to miss them all so much!!
I used Pet Sitting to the MAX for at-home cat sitting while I was away for 11 days. I was matched with Luis, who was very responsive and quick to come visit my home to figure out what he'd need to do while I was away. He came once a day and spent around 30 minutes with my cat. He fed him, changed water, and cleaning out his litter box. He also sent me a photo and text update everyday, which was HIGHLY appreciated! The visits were $25 a piece, which was a bit steep, but I enjoyed the security of knowing I was dealing with a company instead of just an individual.
Pet Sitting to the Max is fantastic! We bring our pup there several times a week. He is always eager to get inside and spend the day playing with his friends. Our pup is a deaf border collie who requires a bit of extra attention and they always manage to keep him motivated and entertained. They send photos and pupdates throughout the day.
We have had many sitters and the Max is our favorite!
Easy to arrange visits plus cute updates and pics. Scheduled every-other-day visits with my cat over the holidays -- great experience!
I can't say enough great things about these guys. We went away for two weeks and we were terrified of leaving our dog and cat in the wrong hands. Well, PSTTM completely eased our concerns! They texted us "pupdates" and pictures every time they visited along with a blurb, and our pets looked thrilled! They were extremely timely and very detail oriented with our pets' specific needs.
It's not hard to tell that every single employee of this company is a tried and true animal lover. We ended up having three different folks come over the two weeks and each one of them as professional and communicative as the last.
Thank you SO MUCH, we will absolutely look no further next time we go on holiday, and our pets look forward to your future visits.
This place is outstanding! For a couple of years Amy came to walk and care for our cocker spaniel during the day. Last year Kelby continued the dog walking and bonded well with him too. Then Amy opened her day care this year and our dog spends 3 days a week there. I am so thankful for Amy and all of her staff. They truly love dogs and get to know them individually. My dog loves being around the other dogs and people, so being there is so much better for him than being home alone. I highly recommend them!
Amy is the best and we always know that our kitties are in good hands. We have been using Pet Sitting to the Max for over a year now and would never use anyone else after our great experience!
They've been looking after our dog for nearly three years now. They are a family owned operation that has tons of love for our dog, and is totally professional and reliable. Our dog is so excited when we pull up to their day care because he always has a good time. When we are on longer trips, they'll send us photos of our dog playing so we know he's having a good time. Highest recommendation!
I have used many pet sitters and boarding places in the 2 years since I've gotten my sweet Cavalier Spaniel (e.g. Rover.com , PetSmart Hotel, Private dog sitters I've found on Yelp). None of them came close to the quality of care that Pet Sitting to the Max provides. Despite the five stars ratings, many of my previous pet sitters cut corners or are downright abusive (e.g. providing 15 min walk instead of the stated 30 min, scolding your dog for doing nothing wrong behind closed doors, etc.)
When the staff from Pet Sitting to the Max come to my apartment to pick up my dog, he is genuinely excited to see them (million hugs and kisses, jumping up and down). I have never seen my dog love someone else as much. This speaks volume about the level of care and love they put into practice.
Cannot recommend enough. The price is also extremely fair for the area and the excellent service they provide.
We have used Amy as our primary dog sitter when going on trips (as well as for checking on our dogs when they were puppies and we were at work) for the last three years. The dogs have loved her and she always takes great care of them. She truly is the best and the fact that our dogs love her is a testament to how great of a job she does. Thanks, Amy!
Heather and Joshua
My dog is as happy to see Amy as he is to see me. He loves it over there and I've been entrusting him with Amy and her staff for over 3 years. I love the pictures she sends, but mostly, I'm just at peace of mind knowing they'll take care of him like he's their own.
We have used Amy as our primary dog sitter when going on trips (as well as for checking on our dogs when they were puppies and we were at work) for the last three years. The dogs have loved her and she always takes great care of them. She deserves a special shout out for her amazing flexibility in our recent circumstances when we were going to "drop the dogs off some time in August" because we were due with our first child and obviously could not predict the day he was coming. She was ready and able to watch the dogs at the drop of a hat the day that we had our baby! She truly is the best and the fact that our dogs love her is a testament to how great of a job she does. Thanks, Amy!
Heather and Joshua
Amy and her staff are incredible! We dropped off our two dogs without worry and they came home calm as can be and you could tell they had a great time. They had an immense amount of patience with our older dog who is cockapoo, 13 years old and a bit "cranky". Our younger dog is a malinois mix and he is all energy all the time. You could tell he had a lot of mental stimulation and exercise at psttm! I recommend them highly and will not take my dogs anywhere else!
After reading what others have said, not sure I can add too much more other than my two Girls have been staying with Amy for years! I'm completely happy with the service and love she gives to each pup! Yahoo Amy!
I don't know what I would do without Jamie... My 16-year old grumpy little feline dude needs subcutaneous fluids every three days and pain meds daily. Suffice it to say, he refuses to believe that I'm trying to help him when I go to stick him with a needle. Jamie's presence is so calming and self-assured and her skills and experience are super appreciated. She makes life for all involved way less stressful. My husband and I took several longer trips and every time she took care of Gizmo, everything went without a hitch. She sent me photos and emails telling me how Gizmo was doing. Highly and warmly recommend her!
This overdue review for Amy Sibbing, owner of Pet Sitting To The Max, is focused on her character and services. When we first identified her as a possible pet sitter, we engaged her for a short meeting and sitting with our aging and sick dog who was both nearly blind and deaf. Our dog immediately responded to Amy in a very positive way, and since that was our biggest concern, we were fully satisfied. Our dog needed medications and shots twice per day every 12 hours. We then asked Amy to care for our dog in-home while I was headed to a hospital for an outpatient procedure. My car's battery was completely dead, and we had no time to call for a tow truck. We also had no time for a cab, and Amy, without hesitation, handed over her car keys and said GO. Amy not only provides excellent dog sitting services, she also cares about us. Amy's professional and personal attitude to us and our dog is comforting. Our senior dog passed away and we now have another rescue dog. Once again, our new dog loves her, and so do we.
Ami the owner of Pet Sitting to the Max is great. She has had Lina stay at our house twice with two more stays planned in the next month. Lina is great. She sends us daily updates with pictures and the animals (2 cats and 2 dogs) always look happy. We come home and they are happy to see us because they missed us, not because they were neglected or anything bad.
Lina even did a little cleaning before we got home from an 18 day trip to welcome us back which was awesome.
I have met Amy and Karina. Karina has watched our pets while we were away and she did an excellent job! We received pictures and text message updates every day. One of our cats is very skittish around new people and Karina was able to work with him and make him feel comfortable enough to come out and play with her!
When our geriatric cat was being a picky eater (he has few teeth left), Karina has used the food processor to blend up his food, mix it with water and spoon feed him to help keep as much weight on him as possible, in addition to giving him his pills and fluid hydration. If that doesn't demonstrate top level of care, we don't know what does. We love Pet Sitting To The Max!
Amazing company! Deb from Pet Sitting to the Max has been our dog walker for a year and a half, and this review is long overdue. Deb is so wonderful with our dog in every way. She is reliable, understanding of our busy schedules, and always available even for last minute changes or emergencies. When our dog got lost a few months ago, Deb helped us look without a moment's thought, and helped us find her. We've also used the boarding while on vacations, and we know our dog is being well cared for, with multiple walks and play time during the day. And most importantly, Deb has shown over and over that she truly cares about our dog as much as we do. Thanks Deb!
I have two dogs, Chimu and Pipa. So when I was planning to go to Chile to visit my family for three weeks I had to search for a place where to leave them. After a lot of investigation I found out this company, and I'm so glad I did it.
The first part of the process is the meet and greet, where Amy and Karina (in my case) went to my place to meet the girls, in this same visit we agreed the number of visits as well as the daily schedule. This was a couple of weeks before we departed to Chile.
The day we left our dogs, specially Chimu, were very anxious like they suspected something wasn't ok, long story short they were with upset stomachs and very stressed so in the first visit Karina and the rest of the team did to them they found a mess in the house. Here is the first good thing about Pet Sitting to the Max: They diligently cleaned up everything and Karina (she is a pet care technician) started to investigate what was the root of the issue, prepared special food for our dogs (since they stomachs were upset) and took care of them. Always keeping us up to date on the evolution of Chimu and Pipa. They even send pictures to you! so you can see how are they.
After a couple of days the girls were really relaxed enjoying the company of the staff and the daily walks. Karina and the rest of the team continued monitoring Chimu and after a couple of days everything was normal.
I even had some issues returning home when I was supposed to, so I told Amy and she had no issues extending the care for one extra week.
Overall, I recommend this company to everyone who love their pet and want to receive a premium care for them. I'm sure I will contacting Pet Sitting to the MAX in the future.
Pet Sitting to the MAX provides such excellent services--we love Amy and her team!
We were referred to the company through the Sunnyvale Vet Clinic as we needed to leave our puppy in special care as he had not yet received his rabies vaccine and was therefore unable to stay at a boarding facility. Amy was so pleasant to speak with, and helped us arrange everything so that George (our dog) would be able to stay at her place and receive the special care that he needed.
It was an excellent experience--the dogs absolutely love it there and have such a great time. It feels wonderful to know that your pet is in great hands and getting lots of personalized attention while you're gone. They go above and beyond.
Every time we are traveling, we use Pet Sitting to the MAX! They send us pictures of our puppy almost every day, no matter if he's only there for 3 nights or 3 weeks (when we went to Southeast Asia), and he has such a happy experience there. We so appreciate having such a valuable, trusting, and positive relationship with our dog sitters!
I'm very happy with Pet Sitting To The Max. My dog occasionally goes to daycare and he is always happy and tired by the time he gets to go home. Amy is very personable and her staff is caring and very good with my dog.
When I go on vacation and need someone to stay overnight with my pets, her staff is very accommodating and easy to work with. I have plenty of non-obvious surveillance cameras in my home, that I can use to check in at any time. I can even hear in addition to see, what is going on. My pets have always been well treated by her staff, if not a little spoiled. The staff has always abided by my house rules, including keeping the place clean at all times. I also love getting daily updates and pictures while I'm away.
I'm very happy with the service and I would recommend them to family and friends.
Thanks to Amy and Pet Sitting To The Max for taking good care of our two dogs over the 4th!
Knowing that we can fully trust Amy to come to our house while we're away to spend time with 'the girls', two picky Shibas, makes all the difference in our being away without worry! One of our dogs has some special medical needs, and boarding was just never a comfortable option for us. Amy and her team have made all the difference. She sends us daily notes and pics from the house visits while we are away, putting our minds at ease. Knowledgeable, sweet, trustworthy, reliable and responsible- and well priced!
Whether daily walks or extended dog sitting, you can't do better than Pet Sitting to the Max!
We've used Pet Sitting to the Max twice now, and they were fantastic!! Amy is easy to interact with to arrange the service, and Karina came to our house before we left town, to meet our cat, Cookie. In general, I don't typically feel very comfortable with people coming to our house when we're away when I don't know them, but Karina made us feel very comfortable with her right from the start. Honestly, at first I thought it might be a bit much to come out to the house first, but I'm so glad she did. She was unbelievably thorough, very professional, and very kind to our cat, who is very picky about whom she'll interact with....and it took around 8 seconds for Cookie to interact w/Karina. She was also happy to do anything else reasonable around the house - take in mail, take out garbage, etc.
She also sent us texts w/photos every time she came to the house, telling us in detail how Cookie was doing and what she'd done in the house, taking out garbage, etc.
She even brought a new toy for Cookie, and would not let me reimburse her for it, as it was a gift.
I mean - this service was really amazing and over the top. I would recommend this service to any pet owner who wants to have excellent care. And I will absolutely use them again when I need their services. It's not possible for me to give them a higher rating.
We recently used the services of Pet Sitting to the Max and overall it was a good experience. Roshan came to our home well before our trip and went through all of the services they provide and how much it would cost. Very professional and thorough. During our trip, she was in contact with me after each visit, and provided photos, which was helpful since we were concerned about our cat, Fred, being a senior cat and all. They make it very easy to pay for their services online, too. It would be helpful, however, if the payment allowed for a tip option. Regardless, great service and we'll be calling them again in the future.
We send our dogs to the team daily for "camp." The pups love it! Amy picks them up and brings them home. The dogs are nice and tired after playing for the day. Amy and team are very responsive to texts and email and great to communicate with. We haven't gone on vacation yet but would trust the team to either take our dogs while we are gone or sit them in our home. We get regular reports during the day on the dogs activities and have had help with transporting them to/from the vet for routine appointments. I regularly will also ask Amy and team for advice on training or general care for the dogs. A+ experience.
i've been using the services of pet sitting to the max every weekday for about half a year now. my regular dog walker, lina, has been nothing short of amazing. she's reliable, flexible, and extremely personable. it was immediately obvious that she loves dogs and that she takes pride in her work. i couldn't be happier with the care and attention that my dog receives. 5 stars!
I created a Yelp account just to give a review :) We move every 13 wks and I only wish we could take Amy and her family with us. We boarded our sweet girl there and she absolutely loved it. Amy was so flexible with drop off and pick up times and was always available. I have a pit mix and it can be impossible to find a place that will take her even though she has never been aggressive. All the dogs are screened to see how they work with others and are always supervised. It's just a truly wonderful environment for every breed of dog. Thank you Amy and crew!!!
Pet Sitting to the Max is absolutely superb! Amy and her crew go the extra mile to accommodate the needs of both the owner and the beloved pet! They've helped us so many times and in so many ways, it's hard to enumerate them all - but their excellent and highly personalized service always leave us and our dog with a big smile! From convenience pick-ups, to odd-hour drop-offs, to doggie medicine, special foods, playtime, and photos sent to us while we're away - I'm confident they take care of our little dog at least as well as we can - she always comes home looking great and acting happy! Thanks Amy! I highly recommend them!
I booked a walk a day for 2 days for my 2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier Mix, taking advantage of the "free walk" offer via yelp check-in. I was leaving my rescue dog home for the first time and wanted to hire a dog walker so my family didn't need to move their schedules around to take my dog out on walks.
Lisa came over for an initial meeting and spoke with me about how the dog walking would work and met my dog Indy. Things seemed ok and although Lisa seemed to be a little inexperienced/unsure at first, she was polite and cordial, putting in the effort to get to know what I wanted for my pup when I was gone.
The following day, I left for my weekend trip. Since my rescue dog is still dealing with separation anxiety, I let my family know that if Indy seemed too stressed, it was fine to just send Lisa home rather than force Indy to walk. Well, turns out that's exactly what happened.
Though Indy did not respond well to being walked, I was told Lisa attempted to make it work until my family told her that it was fine and to skip the walks. In the meantime, I emailed Karina at PSttM to explain the situation, cancelled the second walk, and told her to go ahead and charge me for one walk since Lisa came over and tried. Karina was very understanding and actually offered to credit me for 2 walks to be used at a later time or refund me for both walks.
She went above the standard that I expected and I look forward to using this dog walking service again soon.
I had a wonderful experience with Pet Sitting to the Max. They came and took my dogs out for a walk everyday for a week when my husband was out of town. They were amazing! My dogs were well cared for and I received some really amazing photos of them. Our dog walker, Jim, even provided me some suggestions for my rambunctious puppy, and I was so grateful! I would highly recommend them and plan on using them again in the near future!
If you are looking for a dog walker, daycare, or overnight care for your dog, stop your search and use these guys - seriously. I have been using them for over a year for all three services and continue to be impressed with the quality of their care.
We used Pet Sitting to the Max from the very beginning when we got our BT at 8 weeks for visits when we were at work. They were very careful to be sure they understood our needs and our regimen for caring for our puppy, and came ahead of time (on short notice, too) to meet him and ensure that everyone felt comfortable with the plan before proceeding.
For about a year, Lina was our regular dog walker - coming when our BT was too young for the traditional walks just to visit, play, and help with the potty training. I can't tell you how many compliments I received from other people in our apartment building that would see Lina and comment to my husband and I about how sweet she was. She took such good care of our BT, sending us pictures, creating little videos, and we feel she cared for him so well that I would refer to her as his second mother. We are so thankful for Lina and couldn't have raised our pup without her help.
We have also bought out BT to daycare/overnight stays with Pet Sitting to the Max, and also always felt that he was receiving top notch care. We never had a worry; we knew if our dog was with Pet Sitting, he would be okay and cared for. He is also such a cuddlebug that we sleep with him at night, and they were totally understanding and accommodating of that. We recently had our dog stay with Karina for the holidays and, due to travel complications, couldn't get back until a full 3 days later. They helped us out without even blinking an eye, and when he ran out of food, they went and picked up more for him. When we picked him up, he also had a little name tag on his collar as we hadn't gotten one for him. The little touches like that let you know that they care for your fur baby just like you do. I have also found Karina to be very knowledgable and she always had good information whenever we had vet visits, etc.
Amy, the owner, is also very sweet and totally understands your needs and will love your dog like you do.
There are other people at the daycare/overnight that I don't think I've met personally, but knowing Amy and the caliber of the rest of her staff, I'm sure they are amazing as well.
We owe our happy and well-adjusted puppy's temperament at least partially to the help we got from Pet Sitting, and there are countless other little moments that I haven't written about here that would speak volumes about their commitment to animals.
I can't recommend them enough - we are so grateful we found them!
Travel without having to worry..Pet Sitting to the Max is a wonderful alternative to having to board your pets in a cramped cage somewhere amid all the howling and crying for missed owners..your pets receive the best care in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes..Amy and her staff are flexible and dependable, and the costs are reasonable. I have been using their services for several years now..they were recommended by my Vet and I have been 100% pleased with the care that my animals receive..none better!! Thank you Amy and crew of Pet Sitting To the Max!!!!
Kelby and Mattie did a great job house sitting my 2 cats and apartment while I was gone. They followed all of my instructions and left my apartment in the same or better condition than they found it (sweeping around litter box, left empty dehumidifier tank and full Brita water pitcher etc). 25$ a day to take care of my apartment and cats was definitely a great deal.
I was concerned when finding a pet sitting place because most of the ones that service my area are staffed by older, retired ladies and one of my cats is a total psycho. I didn't want to have to pay anyone's medical fees. I was relieved when I met Kelby because I could tell she'd be a great personality fit for my crazy cat. I will definitely use them again next time I leave town.
