I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! Our dogs had a wonderful time...they shared it all with us hahhah! They were so happy when we picked them up, they didn't even really care that we came to get them We are both so appreciative! The whole process was super easy and Tori, you run a wonderful business and I can see why you have such fabulous people that work for you!! You attract who you are:)
This is an email I sent to the owner and our dog sitter! This experience was so awesome! We loved that our dogs got to have a second home with new furry friends. You will love Doolittle's Doghouse!
Just returned from 5 days trip where Doolittle's Doghouse stayed at our house dog sitting our huge Hudson, a Leonberger! It was an excellent experience all around! The house was "sat" impeccably.....new potted flowers watered, Hudson walked, mail and packages brought in and more......as was the love, attention and protection of our baby boy! Traveling is stressful under the best circumstances so to have a stress free set-up back at home is such a blessing and worth every penny!
If you're seeking a first class nanny for your beloved fur child then Doolittles is for you! The owner, Tori has a trusted network of nannies and is your personal concierge to provide the best match for your dog. She spent a good deal of time with me by phone, going over every detail of what I require for my two toy poodles. She then selected a wonderful nanny, Maria to care for them while I was away for a few days. After a brief meet & greet, I agreed that Maria was the one. Throughout their stay in her home, she sent me thoughtful updates and photos. Overall, this is a more personalized service than the online sitter networks, since Tori is there to help you. I was very impressed and enthusiastically recommend Doolittles to all the doggie helicopter moms like me!
We used this service for several years with great results. Charlene who was our usual sitter became a friend and very trusted person. Unfortunately recently we needed a fill for a few days and Joe came in. We have a ring system that covers ALL exits of our home. We have him on video hollering in very negative manner and in 3 days NOT one time of walking our dogs. He tried to lie his way out and Tory the owner defended him even with our video proof. We then had another unfortunate incident that again we have proof but Tory or her group are never wrong. And be careful she can be vindictive. If you can get Charlene you will be very happy but avoid Tory.
We were coming into Scottsdale for our anniversary and needed to find a reliable pet sitter for our new little rescue dog. Tori was very quick to respond and within a few days had made arrangements to set us up with the perfect dog sitter. From the moment we met her, Mary-Mike treated our little BeeBee like she was her very own! She sent us pics and text messages everyday. It was so comforting to know our dog was in such a caring and loving environment. We have already scheduled another visit several months from now. I couldn't be more appreciative of how responsive Tori was in ensuring our needs were met, and for introducing us to our new friend and most wonderful dog nanny, Mary-Mike!
This is the best pet sitting experience we have ever had. It's so comforting to know that we can leave our puppy in good nanny hands when we have to leave him.
As we had just relocated and are new in the area, Tori was so kind in recommending services that we were going to need (vet, grooming and even a hairdresser for me!).
I highly recommend this company and unique business!!
As an update to my earlier review. It took this business owner 3 months (!) to respond to my review. The apology comes late and without any grounding as we have used another service for the last 3 months with no problems and they actually assisted us in socializing our pup with less dogs and the "dog sitter" actually being home during the stay. Thanks for the reduction in fees Tori, but money wasn't the issue, having a restful vacation without constant badgering about how bad our dog was is the issue. Best wishes.
I'm so happy I found this business. We recently adopted a very anxious heeler who doesn't care to meet most people. She's a nervous wreck most places we go and if she's left in a crate for more than a few short hours she will absolutely destroy it. We needed a plan for Sunday's- the one day a week we both work. I was nervous for our initial play date with Mary, because I didn't know how our girl Dizzy would respond. She LOVED bring at her house and was instantly playing and completely at ease. Mary is a joy and even bought Dizzy her own toy. I can't say enough kind words about her. She asked me lots of questions, what kind of treats can she give her, and always asked if it was okay if she did anything. I'm a pretty lenient dog mom, but I absolutely respect her wanting to make sure I was okay with everything. I'm a vet tech, so from one animal professional to another, thank you soooo much for taking good care of my angel and relieving my anxiety about leaving her!!
