Don't use them!


I was gone for four nights. The person dogsitting didn't know who I was the first time I called, so I was nervous the whole trip. The second (and only other) time I called the person didn't answer and didn't call back. I finally reached him three hours later. When I returned home, my dogs were fine, but there was more dirt in their water bowl than water, and they had been overfed. The worst part was the treatment I received when I told the owner about my displeasure. There wasn't any apology, only defensiveness. Then, I was treated as though it was my responsibility to get the second half of payment to her. I was told I would get my keys when, and only when, my check cleared if I mailed a check. Then, I was told I had to come to her home to get my keys and pay her. When I said I wanted her to come to me, since I was paying HER and I shouldn't have to do the work, she said, "that wasn't the arrangement". In the end, she had me use the second half of payment to change the locks. Poor business practices abound here. I'm sure my dogs were reasonably well taken care of, but I wasn't and still am not happy about the services I received (even for half price) and would NEVER use or suggest this company to anyone.
