What our clients say about us

Bucky, Lulu & Harper

bulldogs pet sitting
First of all, let me start off by saying that I don’t trust my dogs with just anyone. All three of them are high maintenance. I have two that are on raw diets, have allergies, need medication and that are also quite stubborn I also have one that just turned 17 yrs old and is deaf, blind and has dementia. You can only imagine what all that entails. We usually would plan trips around when and if a family member could watch them. When we had a Christmas trip planned, and no one was available, I started interviewing pet sitters.

Just wanted to thank the Bones and Belly Rubs Team who lovingly cared for my 3 rat terriers over a Christmas vacation. My dogs were happy and well cared for when I returned. They obviously had been played with after dinner because as soon as they ate, the ran to where there toys are for me to get them out. It was also so nice to read the detailed notes written about my pups from each person who visited my dogs each day. If I were to give them a grade, it would be an A+++! I’m already planning to
