    "Jackie has taken fantastic care of our cat each time we've been away over the past months. She's always in excellent communication with us and we come home to find a happy cat. We never have to worry while we're traveling."
    Basile B., Logan Circle

    "Jackie does a great job taking care of my very energetic pup! My dog fell in love with her immediately and jumps for joy whenever Jackie arrives for walks."
    Sarah M., Shaw

    "I travel frequently, sometimes on short notice, so it is a real comfort to know that I have someone experienced, professional, and reliable to look after my furry friend."
    Zack T., Dupont Circle

    "Jackie has watched my 19 year old cat over the last few months when I've gone on long business trips...sometimes up to two weeks. My cat, Patience, is deaf and often lonely. While away, Jackie became a comforting friend to Patience, sometimes just being there and holding him for awhile. I always felt content knowing that he was in good hands. Because Patience is an older cat with asthma and a heart murmur it was also comforting to know that Jackie was fully equipped to respond to any emergency that may arise given her veterinary experience. I would recommend Jackie to anyone looking for a kind, responsive, and nurturing pet sitter."
    Jessica L., Adams Morgan

    "Jackie is the best! She takes great care of my 18 year old cat. She sends regular updates and pictures - it definitely puts my mind at ease when I'm out of town. Jackie also has a great team members that fill in for her when she's unavailable. She's super reliable. I highly recommend her services!"
    Amy B., Logan Circle
