I could not be happier with Kelley and Sitter for you Critters. I recently moved to Chico with my dog Leo and have been worried about having to board him while I am away. I was lucky enough to meet Kelley and learn of her pet sitting services just before a trip I had planned with my family. Kelley was very professional and invited Leo and I over to get acquainted with his soon to be home away from home and also make friends with her dogs Rusty and Sadie. Leo and I both were immediately comfortable as I provided Kelley with all of the details of Leo’s daily care. Knowing that Leo would be in the hands of professional and caring dog lover put me at ease and allowed me to enjoy my trip and not worry about him being stuck in a kennel all day and night and perhaps catching a bug from the environment of many boarding facilities. Kelley updated me with texts about their daily walks and adventures and even gave him a bath. Leo got more exercise than he’s gotten in a long time and I am quite certain he had a great time playing with her dogs and making friends. I highly recommend Sitter for your Critters for all your pet sitting needs and look forward to knowing Leo will always have a familiar, comfortable place to stay when I am away.

Kelley has been pet sitting my various pets for over 4 years. She is always cheerful, conscientious, knowledgeable about pet behavior and dependable. I never worry when I am out of town and since my dog has been going to her house once a week for doggie day care my rambunctious golden has had much better manners. I always tell people that Kelley’s service pays for itself since my dog no longer chews up my shoes.

Just a few things to say about Sitter For Your Critters pet sitting. First of all, I am pretty overly cautious and maybe even a bit worrisome. That being said when I knew that I needed a dog sitter in Chico for my brand new puppy I really wasn’t sure what to do. Being recommended to me from the Canine Connection I felt a bit better but due to my nature, still had reservations about leaving my pup with a stranger. From the minute I arrived at Sitter For Your Critters and started talking to Kelley I felt completely comfortable leaving my puppy with her. I am a brand new dog owner and she was so informative about food, dog behavior and basically everything under the sun, I stayed and just talked for well over and hour. Not to mention her being extremely affordable, her dogs are also well trained and sociable being a perfect outlet for any dog to have more friends! I have and will continue to use Sitter For Your Critters services.

Kelley has pampered our aging and spoiled house cats for years and recently helped this worrywart seamlessly introduce an unexpected dog with separation anxiety into the household. Sitter For Your Critters also prevented a giant mess and coordinated a repair when our furnace malfunctioned while we were on vacation.

Another relaxing carefree vacation. Thanks so much for taking care of our Shadow while we’re gone. Kelly is the best!

I needed a dog sitter to watch my two dogs while I was working a booth at the Fair for five days, twelve hours a day. I found that Kelley at “Sitter For Your Critters” was great with my girls Ruby and Cheetah. I could tell Kelley really loves animals, she went the extra mile with my girls. Kelley picked them up and dropped them off which really helped me out a lot. I could tell my girls really liked her too. I wish I could find a sitter like Kelley in every town I visit.

I used Sitter For Your Critters this past weekend and cannot say enough good things about Kelley (owner and caretaker) and her services. She was very professional and gave me a great sense from the start that my dog was going to be well loved and taken care of.

I came home to a happy dog with no accidents, fresh water, and a full belly.

Not only did I feel comfortable with her caring for my dog, I felt comfortable for her caring for and being in my home as well. She was also available to send me updates as often as I ask for them.

She really knows and loves what she does.

I would highly recommend Kelley and Sitter For Your Critters and I will definitely use her services again!!

Kelley is an amazing pet sitter. Very professional & sensitive to pet needs. My kitty is a feral kitty who typically runs & hides behind the washer when any body new walks in the door. But she took to Kelley immediately. She actually let Kelley pick her up & love on her. Kelley is patient & always takes the extra time to be sure all of Lucky’s needs are taken care of including play & petting. She communicated concerns, etc with me immediately. Kelley is obviously a “kitty whisperer.” Thank you Kelley for taking such great care of Lucky!!! I highly recommend Sitter for your Critters!!

I just moved into a small apartment with my large Labrador, and Kelley comes to walk her on days when I have to be out all day. I am comfortable with Kelley in my home when I am not there, and Annie has never had an accident or chewed anything because of the mid-day breaks. Kelley is also flexible with my schedule, which as a student I greatly appreciate! This is a great service and Kelley truly loves animals. Even my cat, who hates all visitors on principle, is coming out when Kelley is here.

She has taken care of our chickens, turkeys, sheep, rabbits, cat, rats and fish for us on several occasions. She brings professionalism and caring to everything she does. She has had to give our animals medication and even deal with the veterinarian on our behalf. She really goes above and beyond the call of your average pet sitter. If you want peace of mind, look no further! You cannot go wrong with her. You should definitely call her today as I’m sure she books up fast!

Kelly and team have done a fantastic job caring for our dogs and our chickens at our house when we are gone. She frequently goes above and beyond, for example one of our dogs gets very stressed with thunder and lightning. Kelly checks on her and calms her down whenever there is a lightning storm. She also lets us know if anything unusual is going on with our house.

Thank you, Kelly, for taking such great care of Harley when I was away. We had a great time and you made her feel at home.

Kelley is a genuine animal lover and a dedicated pet sitter and daycare provider. She is quite thorough in her work and very knowledgeable in pet health and care. She provides excellent care and will treat your fur kids as her own. To give you an example she has cared for our plethora of animals: horses, dogs, cats, fish, frogs, and a cockatiel. I trust her explicitly.

We had occasion to use Sitters for your Critters. What an amazing wonderful experience. Our Yorkies Penelope and Valentina felt secure. Valentina is shy and was made to feel at home immediately. We had no qualms about leaving our two most important children.
