Kate recently took care of our senior dog for 10 days and we are completely happy with what was our first TrustedHousesitters experience. Kate was easy to communicate with, was happy to meet with us prior to our departure, sent us daily reports and welcomed us back home with a pot of homemade soup on the stove and a clean house. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation because of Kate’s obvious love for animals and perhaps even more important, her independent nature. I felt that should a crisis arise with either the dog or the house, Kate would be able to handle it without a lot of drama. I can wholeheartedly recommend Kate as a home and pet sitter; we have already booked her for another sit ourselves!
