When we moved to Raleigh, one of our main concerns was who we would find to watch our dog when we go away on vacations. From asking around our building downtown, we found that Raleigh Pet sitters actually walks quite a few dogs in our building. Before our first time using the service, Cindy came to our place to meet us and our pitbull, which of course put my mind at ease for 2 reasons. 1- we wanted to know who is caring for our baby, and 2- who is going to be in our home.
In the past year and a half , we have had Ariel, who unfortunately has moved on to greener pastures, but thankfully replaced by Jessie who is just awesome with Isys! We have gone away about a half of a dozen of times, with no worries or concerns while we are away. I especially love the notes that they leave us about how every walk went while we were away, and love the pictures that get sent to me of her playing outside. Thank you Raleigh Pet Sitters!
We can't say enough good things about how much our dogs love Cindy, Taylor and everyone else at Raleigh Pet Sitters. They are always on time to come take our dogs out and play with them, and the detailed information we get when we return is helpful and informative. We would recommend them to everyone!
Cindy's pet services is an amazing dog walker/dog sitter service in Raleigh, NC. I have now been a client of theirs for over a year and I couldn't have found better people for the job! I have two 3-year old dogs, and I know they are getting the best care. Colleen is my primary sitter and the dogs absolutely love her. Sometimes I have to go out of town on very short notice, and Cindy always works with me to ensure that my dogs are given the time and care they need. I know I can trust and totally rely on Cindy's Pet Services and I recommend them highly. I always come home to happy dogs. :)
We've been using Raleigh Pet Sitters since 2009 for our cats. Cindy is very responsive with our visiting requests, just a few minutes after sending an email to get it scheduled. And the two sitters we've had have been very good. They write up a report at the end of the final visit talking about each cat and how they did, whether they were playful, wistful, etc.
Raleigh Pet Sitters Instead of Boarding Your Pets – We thought we had care lined up for two dogs and cat for our vacation but then we found out two weeks before we left, that our friends could not keep them after all. I really didn't want to board the dogs because they've never been boarded. I just knew my Winston would hate it and the cost for two dogs was going to be significant. I'm so thankful that pet sitting came to mind. It cost us half of what it would cost to board them and I felt so much better knowing that my animals were safe and happy in their own beds. Both Cindy and the sitter, Jess, who'd be doing the visits, came by to meet us and the animals the weekend before we left. I instantly liked Jess and was very pleased to have daily reports from here about each visit.
They were clearly very professional and showed they took their business seriously; yet they demonstrated the personal connection and touch you want for your pets.
Awesome – I have been using Raleigh Pet Sitters for over three years now. They are amazing! The dog walkers are responsible, knowledgeable, and reliable.
I have had the pleasure of working with Jess for about a year now and she is so easy to reach-just a simple text away. I love that she leaves a note about their walk! Jess has walked some of my foster dogs as well as my own puppies and they are always happy and tired when I come home!
My schedule is constantly changing and there have been several times where I have needed a dog walker with only a few hours notice. Cindy and Jess have always managed to make sure that my dogs are taken care of and for that, I highly recommend Raleigh Pet Sitters!
Best Pet Sitting Service in Raleigh! – I just moved to the Raleigh area and a friend recommended Cindy's. I was nervous at first, (having never used a pet sitter before), but Cindy's is FANTASTIC! Colleen took care of my dogs and I feel totally comfortable leaving them in her care in the future. She gave them lots of love and even administered medication for me. I also loved getting texts and pictures each day, letting me know that my dogs were okay. I would highly recommend them to anyone who loves their pets like children!!! They are professional, friendly, and very responsible.
Cindy's Pet Service - GREAT! – We have a 14 year old Labrador Retriever, 8 year old Miniature Yorkie and 7 year old Pomeranian. After years of dealing with "doggie daycare, veterinary boarding services and pet resorts" in the Raleigh area we had grown accustom to adding $90 + a day to any trip we took.
You would think for the price we paid for a veterinary boarding service that there was a fulltime ?sitter? hanging out with our dogs, allowing them to run free in a fenced in yard during the day, and personal attention given to each one of them for at least 45 minutes a day.... BUT NO ... that would be extra. For the $90+ a day the dogs could share a large crate and would have up to 20 minutes of outside time and 3 bathroom breaks a day. REALLY???
No wonder anytime we pull out a suitcase and began to pack:
? our Yorkie starts to climb in and hide, praying he would ?go unnoticed?
? our Labrador began to pace and pace and pace and pace and pace ...
? and our Pomeranian would start to either hide with the Yorkie or pace with the Labrador
I know that it is not free to board three dogs but the veterinary boarding services were getting TOO expensive for the service. Next we tried a pet resort. At $120.00 a day we could barely afford to go on our week long family vacation and the services offered were nothing to brag about. Again we were being charged additional vet fees along with outdoor ?play time? fees for each dog. OUTRAGEOUS!
Next we decided to try a ?doggie daycare? service we found on a message board at a local restaurant. Things seemed ok upfront, but the additional charges for multiple dogs started to add up. Even though we had a fenced in back yard for daily outside visits and didn?t request, require or receive any ?long walks? we were charged an additional $10.00 per visit. Plus an additional $8.00 per feeding since one dog required medicine that we prepared in a cracker to be given as a twice a day.
With vacations becoming too expensive to take we started relying on unreliable friends to come by and sit our dogs....
This past July we had a week long family beach trip and once again found ourselves in need of a reliable sitter. This time we researched EVERY dog walking service, interviewed a few, and came across Cindy?s Pet Sitting Services. When we talked to the owner, Cindy Golden, we knew Cindy?s Pet Sitting Services was the one for us.
They have been so friendly, accommodating, and we trust them completely with our dogs. The dogs took an immediate liking to their sitter, Gretchen, who came to our house along with Cindy for a face to face hello visit before we committed to using their services.
The same person, Gretchen, would be the one to come by three times a day ? spending 30 minutes with our dogs at each visit. There were no crazy up charges for having more than one dog (only $2.00 for the third dog!) and she leaves a note every time about how the day went.
Finding a pet sitter that is suitable, affordable, and that provides a sense of comfort while w
Home and Happy – Cindy is a serious pet lover and has two dogs and two cats that she adores which I believe is the number one requirement for a pet sitter. I was quite impressed with her level of detail and professionalism. It is important to me that Cindy and her employees are bonded and insured since they will be taking care of our home too.
I was very happy when I came home from our first trip when Cindy cared for our cats. I could tell the cats were well taken care of and received lots of attention. Cindy left written notes from each visit giving us details on their care and behavior. It was such a relief to know she did more than just put food in the bowl and changed the litter. And I liked the little things such as our mail was piled neatly on the counter. When we travel in the summer, I ask Cindy to water my two flowerpots on the balcony daily. They always look great when we return so I know she thoroughly watered them.
We trust Cindy?s Pet Sitting Service to take our of fur babies while we are away allowing our cats to remain in their home and giving us peace of mind that they are happy.
Cindy's Pet Sitting Service is GREAT! – Cindy's Pet Sitting Service is awesome. You can even call them the day before you leave town and they are always available! Jess has watched our dog on a continued basis and she is great!! She is very conscientious... follows every instruction we give her as it changes each time...she plays with him, walks him and just keeps him company. She even waters our plants and feeds the fish! We return home to very detailed notes as well and feel like he was very well taken care of. I would recommend this service highly!
