We had tried several boarders over the years and our two retrievers hated them. My husband and I weren’t sure if they just didn’t like being away from us or if the places themselves were not comfortable for our pets. Thankfully, some colleagues recommended Stephanie at Critter Sitters and we have been loyal customers ever since. She has an easy-going attitude, is unflappable in terms of schedules and animal temperament and is amazingly adept at reading pets’ personalities.  Our dogs have been in her care many times since then for anywhere from an overnight to almost two weeks.  And every time, they are delighted to see her. She knows just what to do and say to calm them when they’re anxious, make sure they get their beloved play time and have plenty of exercise.  The difference is remarkable. We return and they are happy to see us, but not neurotic, as they have been at other places. That’s a testament to Stephanie!  Her prices are reasonable, the dogs are comfortable and we can relax, knowing that their care is in capable hands.  We would recommend Stephanie and Critter Sitters to anyone ~ but not TOO many people! We don’t want her to get so busy it’s hard to schedule Abby and Tucker!
