(Pet Tech Certified 2015)

Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

Hi there! My name is Tristan!

Tristan, has resided in Bucks County for twenty six years —(18 years nurtured by his pet-lover mother Luanne)

And Tristan has always cherished pets, especially dogs, despite growing up with cats when he was a boy. (Rinny- Rin Tin Tin & Pumpkin)

Tristan started working with a professional pet sitting business in 2004 and ‘learned the ropes’ from an experienced pet caregiver. When that pet service became larger, and Tristan was no longer needed, Tristan decided he wanted to start his own pet service to connect with his clients differently— so that’s what he did!

Today, Tristan is growing pet-sitting service offering full-service of pet care options for owners who have to leave their furry friend behind for some reason.

Tristan understands the difficult parts of any vacation or business trip is figuring out what to do with your pet — and if you travel frequently, it can be even more difficult on you and your animal.

Dogs and cats desire firm schedules. When you’re considering boarding your dog in PA or NJ, or finding a cat-sitter, I believe it’s best to provide your pet with affectionate, trust-worthy sitter.

About Tristan's pet care business... "Emotionally connecting with your pets 1 paw at a time"

If you’re looking for a professional, thoughtful, well-trained Philadelphia “suburbs based” pet sitter, Tristan is your dream come true!

We have been providing Pennsylvanians and South Jersey residents with cage-free boarding, dog walking, cat boarding, & house sitting while their pet parents are away since 2004.

I am a professional pet sitter who cherishes, cuddles, runs, and plays with dogs and cats in their own private-homes, or exclusively in guest houses in the surrounding Philadelphia and South Jersey region.

Everything that currently works best for you and your furry friend, Tristan will deliver it, and more!

When I say Tristan is a Pennsylvania and South Jersey pet sitting business, we compassionately mean it. We master pets, and we master PA and NJ.

*We do have house birds*

Tristan did a great job with both dogs-- one of them a very nervous rescue pup. He was kind and friendly and let them out/fed them, and sent a video and pics as well, which was nice to receive on our day trip. We look forward to having him for a longer visit next week!
Tristan was great -- took the time to really get to know my dogs and was amazingly flexible because I had to keep changing my plans. I never used a dog walker before so I was very concerned about how they would be. I am happy to say that my dogs adjusted very well and I am sure it is because he took the time to really get to know them.
Tristan was wonderful to sammy! we will surely be sending him back to stay when ever we have to go away! thank you!!!
Tristan sent frequent pictures and updates of Gus. Would use him again and recommend to others!
Very quick responses and very helpful with my diabetic pets medication. Lots of updates along the way as well....thanks so much for everything and would highly recommend.
Tristan took such great care of the boys and girls. My dogs are both senior labs, so if they aren't feeling well i can tell. They both looked so content and happy. I can see that Tristan paid them alot of attention. I don't think they even missed me!
Tristan was quick to respond and Alita enjoyed her stay!
What can I say, Tristan is just the best! We plan on moving in a year or so, and he is honestly the biggest reason to stay near NJ!

Our dogs were bathed, well fed, and clearly given tons of love :-) Our dogs ran right to Tristan as soon as he picked them up, they absolutely love him! He's really the only person we trust with our fur babies.
Billy was in great shape when we arrived home!! We were especially impressed with Tristan when we met him at the home visit. He had a calming influence on Billy, who can be a bit excitable. Bill lied down next to Tristan right after meeting him.
Tristen was very good to Brooklyn. We received photos and videos of Brooklyn in the yard during her stay. :)
Another great stay at Tristan's! He had recently moved so he did me the favor of driving 1hr+ to my house to pick up the pups for me :-) They had a wonderful stay and were so happy when I picked them up!
This was Ginger's third stay with Tristan and his family. She was so comfortable with them that when she entered the house, she went right down the hall to check out her little friend and didn't even look back at me.
This was Rocky's second stay, however this was an entire week stay. Rocky immediately wanted to play with other dogs and Tristan also advised the other dogs were the highlight of Rocky's visit. We obtained picture updates again to ensure he was well. We will continue to book with Tristan into the future.
Babe always has such a good time with Tristan. All the play time with other dogs makes her happy
Thank you for taking such good care of Lily!
Tristan was great, he was very accommodating with my last minute request. Sonny was well cared for.
Tristan and family they're very well ! my dogs they're happy ! all the best ! thanks so much for them !!
As usual, my pups had a wonderful time at Tristan's! He took great care of them, including providing medication to one of my dogs who suffers from anxiety. Even though they were only there for one night, he still took the time to give them a bath before we picked them up, which we are always VERY grateful for :-)
My guy Bruce Lee has stayed with Tristan two times now. He loves his stay obviously by the wY he went right with Tristan on his second visit and never looked back to me. Tristan sends pics of Bruce playing with the other doggie campers. Thank you for being a great care giver to Bruce when we can't take him with us.
Tristan was great, a very experienced and confident dog and cat caretaker. He has the skills to manage most anything. I especially liked the way he introduced my dog Ginger to his dog to make them comfortable with each other. I also want to say Tristan was very patient with me as I struggled with traffic enroute making me especially late. It was a very good first experience for us.
Tristan always takes such good care of Babe. She comes home, clean, happy and tired from all the playing she does. This is her second stay with Tristan and am very happy
My fiancé and I went on a 3 night fishing trip and we left Rocky with Tristan. He immediately accepted our request and was extremely communicative from reservation to pick up. He had two other dogs there as well and rocky was introduced and had a blast the entire weekend. We had no worries the tire weeks as we were updated periodically with how Rocky was doing as well as pictures posted and we breed them through the dog vacay app. We will certainly book again!
I'm so glad Tristan was there for us and our dogs. I knew he would be a good fit when he came to meet the dogs and got right down on the floor with them and had our conversation from there. We did not have to worry while we were away. Love the video he posted for us.
Another awesome stay with Tristan! It's so nice to go away for the wknd and know our boys are having just as good of a time as we are :-) Thanks for taking care of them!!
Chloe had an amazing time. Thank you so much Tristan, my family was stuck in Austin because our flight was cancelled and Tristan was so accommodating with letting Chloe stay an extra two days!!
Tristan took great care of Bo while we were on vacation. Bo must've had fun playing with the other labs. He seemed reluctant to leave and came home tired from so much playtime. Thank you Tristan,
Tristan was amazing. We received pictures daily of our pup. He was very happy and well taken care of. I would use Tristan again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU!!!!
Mafalda loves going to Tristan's house and I love it too! She always has fun, and staying with Tristan is like staying with family for her. For me, it's such a comfort to know that she's in caring hands! Tristan always sends me a daily picture of her so I know how she is doing, and I think it's no exaggeration to say it's the highlight of my day to see her playing in the snow or snuggled up under the covers!
Another wonderful stay with Tristan! Thank goodness he was able to accommodate my last-minute overnight request or I wouldn't have been able to go away for the weekend, because this is the ONLY place my pups stay. As usual, he was extremely flexible with drop-off/pick-up times, and my boys were extremely well cared for and so happy to be there!
Tristan is AMAZING with my pups. They normally hate going to anyone else's house, but as soon as we arrived at Tristan's they were ecstatic to see him! I was a bit offended though because when I picked them up they--didn't want to leave! We'll be back....often!
This was our first time leaving our dogs with Tristan and I wouldn't doubt to repeat the experience. Tristan answered all of our messages immediately and always let us know how our dogs were doing, I definitely recommend Tristan as the best pet sitting option.
Tristan is awesome! Our dog is so happy there. We've used him many times and he is our go too. Our dog is sad to come home cause she is treated so well.
Another great trip for Charlie! Met a lot of new friends at Tristans.
Another great experience, this is our third time and we are very happy with the care Tristan and his family give our little boy.
Tristan was able to accommodate my last-minute request to take care of my pup over Thanksgiving week. Tristan clearly loves animals and my Diana seemed to take to him right away. When I picked her up she was healthy and happy! Definitely recommend!
Mafalda has stayed with Tristan before and loves going back to see him!
Mafalda had a great time with Tristan! Will definitely book with him again :)
Tristan is responsive and easy to reach. He sent pictures everyday as well as video clips. Charlie seemed very happy having a great time with the other dogs.
Took last min reservations. Very accommodating! Highly recommended
Nemo had a pleasant 2 week vacation. Tristan sent us pictures and updates frequently.
Trusting someone with your pups for the first time is like trusting someone with a newborn baby. Upon meeting him, my shy dog who hates nearly all men went right up to him. Our dogs stayed for a week and we were so nervous to leave them, but Tristan made us feel very comfortable and confident that they'd have excellent care. When we came back, our pups didn't even want to leave! I would highly recommend Tristan for all of your petsitting needs.
Tristan was great with my bulldog Charlie. He took wonderful care of him and sent me pictures everyday which my son loved! Charlie even came home freshly bathed! No complaints at all!
Tristan was so great with my little girl! He sent me photos every day so I could know how she was doing, and kept me up to date with messages as well. Mafalda had a great time and Tristan treated her like she was his own :) I'll definitely be calling Tristan again and recommending him to my friends :)
This was our first time using Tristan and was very pleased with the care that he and his family gave our dog. Was such a nice change over the kennel that we would have normally used, was like having him at a friends home. Will definitely use his services again!
Tristan was awesome! Very accommodating and really attentive with our dog - Boomer was so happy and we got pictures every day which made us feel better about leaving him while on vacation.
Tristan and his mother were a wonderful people to take care of my dog. Tristan was excellent care and was very willing to update me on how my dog was doing. I would highly recommend Tristan to take care of any dog.
Tristan was responsible and appears to have done a great job in caring for our energetic Siberian Husky. He ready to assist us with gladness in spite of our WiFi blackouts. When we returned we had our updates waiting for us. I would not only use him again personally, but would recommend him to others.
Both Tristan and Christine were amazing with our dog Chorizo! We've had bad experiences with kennels (including picking him up and finding open wounds on his legs), so we decided to try a new approach this time. And we couldn't be happier! Our dog came back from their place well fed (he would lose weight every time he went to the kennel, not this time), happy, healthy and relaxed. Tristan and Christine were there for a meet and greet, and when we had a last minute change with the pick up time, they had no issue. Oh! And let's not forget that they answered every single email I sent (the crazy worried mother I am) asking how Chorizo was doing.
Our dog Hula has had several stays with Tristan & Christine. They are always prompt in responding and are attentive. Hula gets excited for a stay. Added bonus is the pick up & drop off service. It really helps us since we have 3 young children to juggle. We highly recommend!
I needed last minute boarding for my highly energetic dog for 2 weeks during the winter holiday time period and my "go-to" kennel was booked. I found Tristan on DogVaCay and he responded promptly to my requests and scheduled a meeting. Tristan has a great deal of experience with dogs and is gentle as well as strong. He established a trusting relationship with my dog and my family. I felt confident that Tristan would provide a comforting, secure and caring environment for my dog while in his care. Tristan made sure that he understood the needs for my dog, providing him with exercise and companionship. Tristan kept me informed of my dogs behavior and activities as well as checking with me if he had concerns. He also was able to accommodate me when my flight was cancelled and my return time was subject change. Tristan provided transportation and is very reasonable priced, no extra or hidden costs. My dog came home happy and healthy! I feel lucky to have found Tristan to care for my dog and will absolutely use him for boarding in the future.
