Born and raised in the suburbs of NYC, I always had a fond desire for animals. Growing up we always had a pet in our household. That is when I knew they all needed my attention, care and love, which is truly rewarding.
I hope I make a difference taking care of your pets. I love it, it makes me happy to be able to care for your pet while you are away.
I am so grateful to have found a new freedom and peace of mind with COD!!! We had a rescue dog that was human and dog aggressive (despite much professional training) that made it impossible for us to take a vacation or go anywhere even for a night. After 5 years of having her in our lives it trained me to be somewhat agoraphobic, and scared to leave my dogs with anyone, or anyone with my dogs. But this year the time came to get married and have a honeymoon, and find someone I trusted to watch our two current , pretty normal (non aggressive) pups. I had more anxiety about the idea of leaving my fur-kids than I ever did about the wedding itself. I didnt cry at my wedding, but I cried leaving my dogs (I know, I know....Just being honest as this may help someone else who has the millions of concerns I had).Steve, Jennifer & Nicole were phenomenal. They sent pics, they updated me, and most of all I knew that my dogs were safe and loved. They handled my anxiety and games of 'worst-case-scenario' very professionally while still being able to help me laugh at how neurotic I was being , and reminding me Im only this way because of how much they mean to me. They are animal lovers through and through, and I am excited to be able to explore more nights out and away with the peace of mind that my pups are being cared for the same way I would. Again, just want to express all of my gratitude to the whole team who made this all possible, as well as The Dog Bar for hosting them and introducing us to their services in the first place. If you worry about leaving your pups with anyone, these are your people!!!!
The Calling All Dogs team is caring, professional and dependable. I know that they treat my cat, Walter, just like their own family member and that they respect my home as if it were their own. I trust this team immensely and I appreciate them!
We have used Calling All Dogs several times. I was completely at ease upon just the completion of the initial (I think it's still free as well) site visit. I really like the updates that you receive about your pet when on trips. I get updates of their walks, what treats were given, and a general view of how our pet is. I like this because we can increase or decrease additional services (as long as it's 24 hour ahead). The pet sitters are really focused on your pet and so far all the staff have great personalities that keep our pet at ease. If you live in the St Petersburg, Florida area, I can't recommend any other walk or sitting company that has made me feel as safe about not only my pet, but my home in general.
Calling All Dogs was a great find. Not only is the service 110%, and the sense of personal care awesome, but the company comes fully insured and bonded for every eventuality—something surprisingly lacking in any of the competition that I found. We will be with these folks for the long haul. Thanks, everyone! And special thanks to Dee (the sitter who worked with us so extremely well)!
