I've been using Board At Home for the past 2 years to walk my dog during the day. When we first started Kit was about 20 pounds overweight and sluggish from sitting around the house all day. After just a few months we could already see the changes in his demeanor and health. We were about to put him on medication prescribed by the vet but by the next visit he said he was healthy as a puppy again. I can't thank all of the great people from Board At Home for their help, flexibility and love for Kit.
I had always used Board At Home to let my dog out during the day while I was at work and to take him for walks. When I went out of town for Christmas they took care of both my cat and dog for over 3 weeks. I've used other pet sitters before but this time the service was well above what I expected. They gave me updates on how the animals were doing, and even left me a report of what happened while I was gone. I highly recommend them to anyone with a pet. Just be sure to book early for the holidays as they do tend to fill up fast.
I have been using the Board at Home pet sitting service for the past 2 years. It started one year at Christmas when my dog had just been diagnosed with Cushings Syndrome. I was very upset at the thought of losing her and didn't want to leave her with friends and couldn't afford to board him at the vet. I heard an ad for Board at Home on the radio and requested a consult. Katie, one of my caregivers, was so wonderful at the consult that instantly I felt at ease. The other caregivers were also extremely nice and even cleaned up the mess my dog made due to the new meds she was on. They were even able to accomodate my 4 sessions a day that sometimes started very early and ended late at night. I have used their service every time I leave town since, and have always had a worry free trip. I can't thank them enough for loving my pets as much as I do.
Pros: They really love what they do and are worth every penny
Cons: Wish they had an overnight stay service, but 4 sessions did the trick
I never know who they're going to send to my house. One week they sent 3 different people! My dogs (and dogs in general) really need consistency and don't like strangers entering the house. I was under the impression that the person they sent on the initial consult to meet me and my dogs would be the one who kept coming, but no. Unfortunately, I am now looking for another service.
Pros: Provide Pet Care
Cons: High Employee Turn-over Rate
I've been using these guys for a few years now. They are great. Very Professional, Dedicated and caring. I know I can always count on them for last minute care. I've had problems with other sitters... NOT! I'm going to be sure that I always live where Board at home can care for my cat. He loves them and so do I!
Pros: Professional, Dedicated, Always Available
Cons: There not all over the U.S. just yet!
Before I knew about Board at Home I would always have a neighbor or friend take care of my pets. After an incident where a friend forgot to come by a few times I started looking for alternatives. A friend of our family recomended Board at Home so I checked into it and tried it over Labor Day. They were friendly, professional and my pets looked as happy as when I'd left them a few days before. I plan to use them again in the future over the holidays and when I go on my misson trip to Mexico this fall.
Pros: By far the most professional service of this kind that I've used
Cons: Almost booked too late for them to set up a consult, be sure to schedule in advance
My poor dog just hates going to the kennel. I decided to try Board At Home and see if this would work out or not. Well, I'm so happy it did. My sweet lil guy gets to stay home, I know he's happier and so am I. I'm also impressed with the way they are able to schedule us for my last minute business trips. Professional, friendly and genuine, all describe Tiffany and her crew. Thanks again! I'll see you next week!
The initial consult was very professional and she took the time to get to know my cat. Even though the kitty was shy, she took the time to get to know her and what she likes. Afterwards I received a full report of everything that happened while I was away. Very professional and thorough and I would highly recommend to other business travellers like myself who are away on a regular basis or just need an occassional check in on days I'm working late. My kitty was happy and so was I for not having to take her to the kennel.
Pros: Very good with the animals and detail oriented with reports
Cons: I personally didn't experience any, and I've used the service often
My dog was happier when I returned than before I left! This is a wonderful service, very professional, will definitely use again.
