Vanessa is a kind and attentive pet sitter and I could not recommend her services more highly! When she pet sits my dog Jake and spends quality time with him, you can tell she is an animal lover and very knowledgeable about them too! I feel assured that when Vanessa takes care of Jake he is in good hands. She keeps me updated and is very caring and responsive. Best of all Jake is happy and there is no better feeling in the world to a pet owner. Thanks for all you do! - Laurie Sandilands
I first met Vanessa when she came to my house for a consultation. She was lovely! Upon entry, she immediately gravitated towards my two dogs, Posie and Maya. She got down on the floor to play with them, and she was happy to receive wet kisses from both. Vanessa sat with me to discuss my needs, shared with me her suggestions, and asked pertinent questions about my dogs. Vanessa had also prepared a comprehensive package of paperwork that collected key information about my veterinarian, dog food, where she could find cleaning supplies if required, my own personal contact information, as well as who to list as emergency contacts. The conversation and in depth questions put my mind at ease as I quickly realized that Vanessa was a professional who knew what she was doing and was someone I could trust implicitly. Vanessa comes to my home twice daily to let my dogs out, give them a treat, and engage in playtime. Vanessa has removed all concerns I have about leaving my dogs while I am at work. She prepares for me a sign in/out sheet where she identifies what time she has arrived and left. She also writes me messages about my dogs’ pees and poos so that I am aware of what’s gone on throughout the day. Also, Vanessa emails me fun anecdotes about the dogs and sends texts with fun, heart-warming pictures of what she and the dogs have gotten up to. I know that Vanessa has my dogs’ best interests in mind. She is a phenomenal caregiver. I enthusiastically recommend Vanessa and her services. She has allowed me to carry on throughout my day and not worry about my pets at all. She is wonderful! If you’re looking for a reliable, keen, and detail oriented professional to care for your pet, Vanessa is who you are looking for. She will undoubtedly meet and exceed your expectations! - Deanna Colgan
I have used Vanessa’s dog care services for the past two years. My previous dog carer was moving out of the area and she helped me to find Vanessa and I’ve been grateful to Silke for finding Vanessa for me ever since. In the last two years Vanessa has given Pip his daily walks, and provided dogcare and also dogsitting services when I’ve needed them. She has been absolutely reliable and I couldn’t have asked for a more trustworthy and responsible person to look after Pip. Pip is a very anxious dog and it was crucial that I had someone he felt secure with, and I have no doubt that when I leave him with Vanessa that he is getting the best care possible. Thank you so much, Vanessa, for everything that you do for Pip. You have made my work days worry free and when I am away travelling, leaving Pip with you will allow me to enjoy my travelling experiences knowing that he couldn’t be with a more caring and responsible person. So if you are reading this, and looking for someone to care for your well-loved pet who is really as important as any other family member, you should know that you couldn’t do better than Vanessa!

I had the pleasure of meeting Vanessa during spring break while dog sitting my daughter's lab along with my own cat. My daughter had arranged for Vanessa to walk and train the lab each morning that I was there. I would highly recommend Vanessa for her many things including her full knowledge of dog walking and training along with her happy disposition. Both the dog and cat ran to meet her every morning and she did a great job such as training the dog not trying to run after other dogs while walking. She also does many other services, such as nail trimming for cats which I took advantage of while there. I have to say her charge for doing that is half what I presently pay my vet. Georgetown is lucky to have her.***** - Jenny McAlpine
