We were absolutely delighted to find Angeline on Pawshake for our beloved dog, Romeo. She is an exceptional dog sitter who has exceeded our expectations in every way. Angeline comes in once a day to take Romeo for his walks and clean him up while we are away at work, and her dedication and care are evident in every interaction. From the moment we met her, Angeline showed genuine warmth and affection towards Romeo. She quickly became a trusted friend to our furry family member, and Romeo absolutely adores her. It’s clear that she has a deep understanding and love for animals, which shines through in the way she handles and cares for them. Angeline is not only reliable and punctual but also incredibly knowledgeable. She offers loads of valuable advice on dog care, which has been immensely helpful for us as dog owners. Her tips and suggestions have made a positive impact on Romeo's well-being and our overall approach to his care. We are grateful for Angeline’s professionalism and the peace of mind she provides. Knowing that Romeo is in such capable and loving hands allows us to focus on our work without worry. We highly recommend Angeline to anyone looking for a compassionate and dependable dog sitter. She truly is a gem in the world of pet care! Thank you, Angeline, for being such a wonderful part of Romeo's life. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you and appreciate all the love and care you give our furry friend.

We had the pleasure of having Lela look after our beloved cat while we were on vacation, and we couldn't be happier with the care she provided. Lela went above and beyond in every aspect, ensuring not only our peace of mind but also our cat's happiness and well-being. From the outset, Lela's professionalism and kindness shone through. She took the time to understand our cat's routines, preferences, and needs, demonstrating her deep knowledge of and affection for cats. Throughout our trip, Lela kept us updated with regular photos and videos, which were a joy to receive and reassured us that our cat was in the best of hands. But Lela didn't stop there; she also surprised our cat with gifts, a gesture that speaks volumes about her generous spirit and thoughtfulness. It's clear that Lela doesn't just see this as a job but as a passion, and her actions had a personal touch that truly set her apart. Thanks to Lela, we were able to fully enjoy our vacation, knowing our cat was receiving not just care but love. Her dedication and professionalism are unparalleled, and we highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best care for their pets. Lela is not just a pet sitter; she's a compassionate and skilled cat caregiver who will treat your furry friend as her own. Thank you, Lela, for everything. We and our cat are looking forward to your next visit!
