We needed help with our dog on very short notice. I called Melinda on Wednesday and she did a visit with us the next day and provided pet sitting on Friday! She makes you feel at ease and sends cute pictures of your dog on her visits. Such a great service!

Athens Pet Sitter has been amazing! I had to go out of town and my previous pet sitting arrangement fell through at the last minute. I booked one week of once-a-day visits for my two kittens. The sitter came over a few days before the trip to meet the kittens and go over the routine that I requested. While I was gone, the sitter sent updates and pictures every day. I came home to two happy and healthy kitties!

The price is a bargain, especially when compared to boarding costs. In addition, the peace of mind that comes from knowing your pets are safe at home is invaluable.

I have already booked Athens Pet Sitter for my next trip and will continue to do so. Absolutely recommend the service.
