Testimonials

Dear Barbara and Gerry,
Thanks so much for taking care of Stanley while we were gone. The professional and conscientious manner in which you handle your business is extremely comforting, and it was obvious when we returned that Stanley had been well cared for. I'm hoping you will be able to take care of him again January 26-29. Meanwhile, best wishes for a very happy holiday season, and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

Gerry - Thank you very much for watching the animals, and the baby kittens! It always makes us feel secure knowing you are caring for them, which makes our vacations always more enjoyable. Thank you for that.

Shadow (9 y/o male terrier x) and Matilda (18 month old female chihuahua mix) are thrilled when I have to leave home to go on business or pleasure trips! They know that Barbara and Gerry will be coming to play with them. With Safe At Home Pet Care, I know that my pups will be loved and pampered in my absence just as they are when I am at home with them. Barbara and Gerry walk and feed them, play with them and have from time to time just spent time with them hanging out and watching TV in the living room! I have used many kennels over the years but was never really satisfied and finally stopped when my dogs got sick from their stay and came home smelly and grumpy. With Safe At Home Pet Care, I know that Shadow and Tilly will get the TLC they deserve in their own home, with minimum disruption of their routine and will have a good time while I am away. I trust and love Barbara and Gerry almost as much as my dogs do!!

Barbara and Gerry (Fallon's Nannies as I like to call them) have taken a potentially stressful time and turned it into a structured, familiar and fun situation for both my new puppy and myself. The second time Barbara came to the house, Fallon ran to her, jumped into her lap and immediately fell asleep (and you know what they say about people that kids and dogs respond well to). I felt immediately comfortable and safe with the two of them and it was obvious that Fallon did too. Ten days after getting her I had to leave town for a few days and Fallon had an ear infection...I was a wreck. Thanks to Barbara and Gerry, I left without looking back and have felt totally at ease ever since. In addition, I got stuck at work one night and was so worried that I wouldn't get home in time to feed Fallon that I started to hyperventilate. Then I remembered that I had Barbara and Gerry in my life. I called and they were able to stop by the house and feed Fallon so I could deal with my emergency at the office. They also stop in twice a day while I'm at the office to feed and play with her (and here's the best part of all) they leave me little progress reports every visit!! Fallon is only 14 weeks old and is completely potty trained, sits, lies down, waits at the curb for me while I check for traffic, heels and stays. I can't express the convenience of having a sitter, walker and trainer all rolled into one. I think anyone with an animal needs to check these guys out!

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Spot and Lila. I just didn't worry about them at all in your hands. They love you guys like family. Thanks for taking such good care of my house, too. Hope to see you soon!

These guys are the best! I have two big dogs who are huge babies and before Barbara and Gerry, leaving town was always an issue. Now it's not and I have never had to worry about them, and they are everything to me -- not to mention my cat! Thank you!

We love having Barbara and Gerry stay at our house and so does Simon, our dog. He is always better trained when we get home because Barbara is a professional dog trainer, too!

All my dogs are rescued animals. They come with their own little eccentricities. But Barbara and Gerry put up with each and every one of them. The medications, the barking, the "let me sleep with you," even the peeing in the house! I am so thankful my friend Judy said, "I know someone who might be willing to sit with your crazy animals."

I knew our cat and house would be in good hands when my family and I left for a vacation back east but I didn't realize I personally would be in good hands. I forgot to pack my blood pressure medicine before leaving. But, after a call to Gerry, he packed up my medication and sent it overnight to the resort where we would be staying. He even offered to refill the prescription because he noticed there wasn't enough pills. Now that's duty above and beyond!

We have never been so happy when our "Mommy and Daddy" left us as when "Uncle Gerry and Aunt Barbara" now come to take care of us. They play with us, pet us, and of course, feed us. Mom and Dad are thrilled when they come home, because Gerry and Barbara clean up our poop and also water their plants.

Love, Lucky and Teddy

We are so pleased to be able to recommend your services. Having had experiences with several less professional pet care people -- one of them absolutely horrifying -- we really know the importance of having people like you that we can genuinely trust to care for our loved ones and our home when we're away. As you know, when we began planning for our honeymoon this summer, we were disappointed to learn that previous commitments made it impossible for you to accommodate our plan to leave the country immediately after the wedding. It didn't take us long, though, to make the decision to postpone our trip. How could we leave our three "babies" in the hands of anybody else? We'll be leaving for our honeymoon almost a week after we get married, but the delay is well worth the peace of mind we'll have, knowing that Flyer, Gretel and Ilsa are in the hands of people who know them and will care for them as well as (or better than!) we do.

Sincerely, Linda & Tom
