What my clients say:
"The Best Ever!
"This is the first time we hired Mathew. He cared for our Border Collie (Miki) while house sitting our home for two weeks. When we returned Miki was happy, healthy, and our home was cleaner than when we left.
"Border Collies love to stay active. Mathew took Miki on multiple walks every day and played endless games of fetch. Our previous care givers were not so active and we returned to a plump dog.
"For home care, Mathew kept our home clean while he was here and did a final cleaning just before we arrived back home. When returned, the floors were freshly vacuumed, towels washed, and the guest bed was made with freshly washed bedding.
"Mathew was excellent and will be our first choice when we need dog/house sitting service." --Daniel S.
"Mathew saved me and my dog over the holidays! He was willing to come meet me the day I left for the holidays and was very attentive to the care instructions for him while I was gone. He seems very detail-oriented and passionate about caring for my dog. He sent frequent texts updating me on my dog while I was out of town. I highly recommend Mathew, and will certainly reach out to him again when needed!" --Sam D.
"Mathew is a very detail oriented caregiver. He hasn't met a dog he didn't love and vice versa. I'm a sitter and trainer myself and there are very few people I'd trust with my animals and Mathew is one of them. He caters his care to your pet and gives them the time and love they need. I couldn't sing his praise enough" --Kellie M.
"Mathew has been an amazingly friendly, caring, and responsible pet sitter for my cat. He's thorough and on top of the non-fun aspects of pet care (e.g. cleaning the litter box or giving my stubborn fuzzball medicine when needed) while also creating an adorable bond with my feline roomie (e.g. playing with cat toys or taking him outside on his harness to adventure - translation: chew on some grass). Squib, my Maine Coon, also loves cuddling with Mathew, so I can confidently say both of us highly recommend Mathew as a critter-friendly human who will ensure your pet gets everything you need while you're away!" -- Erica H.
