What a relief to Know Gretchen is taking such good care of our brood. This is our 5th sitting experience with her. She communicates with us consistently, including sending pictures, and, just as a bonus, the house was immaculate when we returned home. Thanks again, Gretchen!
Gretchen great to work with! She was very communicative with planning the visit and kept us updated with how our 'furry babies' did. We're ready to work with her again!!
I have a brood of animals, one dog (sometimes two, depending on our foster situation), two cats and one guinea pig. Gretchen is always flexible with who is in residence. I am always extremely satisfied with Gretchen's services. She is timely, caring, orderly and great with all the critters. I will plan vacations around her availability to ensure she is our caretaker.
Gretchen was great. Very low key and easy going. She took our pups to the dog park, which they loved. A+!
Gretchen did a fantastic job sitting with our two dogs for 11 days. Communication leading up to the stay and during it were easy and she even sent us frequent photos of the dogs enjoying time at home, in the yard or at nearby dog parks. Gretchen has a wonderful, calm demeanor and she left our house in better shape than she found it. We had a little flight delay coming home, and Gretchen kindly stayed a bit longer with the dogs than planned and followed up once we got home. She is a top-knotch dog sitter!
Gretchen was great with my two little pups! She took them to dog parks and to visit with other pups that she walks during the day...they had lots of exercise and tons of fun! She sent updates and pictures so we knew how they were doing. On top of it she took great care of our place, and even tidied-up before she left. We came home to a clean apartment and happy well-cared for pups!
I was a little anxious about leaving my fur-babes for the weekend, but I didn't need to worry a BIT. I got updates on Bruno and Gracie, even photos of them lounging out in the sunshine. Gretchen took great care of them and I was able to come home after a horrible flight and airport experience to happy puppies and a house cleaner than when I left - and totally love this - even had clean sheets on the bed!

If I could give this lady 10 stars, I gladly would. Thanks Gretchen!
Gretchen was great! She is very responsive and I felt very confident leaving my Gertie girl with her. She also sent me frequent updates and photos which was awesome. Also, my place was very clean when I got back:-) What else could you ask for? I would definitely recommend Gretchen for dog sitting in your home!
Our first experience with Gretchen was really good - she came to our home and stayed so there was less stress for our brood (2 dogs & 1 cat). We came home to a clean house and satisfied animals. We appreciated getting pictures along the way. The best recommendation I can make is this: Gretchen came back to pick up something she had forgotten, and when the dogs heard her voice, their tails started wagging like crazy. I've gotta go make a couple more reservations with her before you guys see this :)
Gretchen was the perfect sitter! She cared for my dog for 4 nights. Sent notes/pics so that I knew all was well. Took my pup to the dog park. And left my house cleaner than when I left. I hope to have Gretchen sit again soon! ~LH
Gretchen is fantastic! She was prompt, informative and is truly fond of animals. We were updated daily with notes and photos which really put our minds at ease. We will absolutely use her again to care for our brood.
Very good with all the dogs!
Gretchen is the best, another easy night for Snoops and Layla, thanks!
Gretchen is great dog sitter!
Gretchen was wonderful, as usual!
Gretchen is very thoughtful, a terrific sitter. I really appreciate her professionalism!
Gretchen was terrific! She stayed with my older fussy dogs for four nights, managed their ups and downs, and kept in touch while I was gone - just the right amount so i didn't worry. I will definitely be asking her to dog sit for me in the future, and have already recommended her to friends. I am very pleased with the DogVacay service, and especially with Gretchen G!
Gretchen did a great job taking care of Roxie. We came home to a happy dog and a clean house. This was our first time using Gretchen and we would definately book with her again.
