I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how appreciative I am that I have you to depend on to watch over Oliver when I have to leave him. If it wasn’t for you, I probably wouldn’t be going away as much as I do. When I leave him with you, I can be sure he will be getting the same care and love that he receives from me. As a matter of fact, for about a day or two after he returns home from his vacation at your home, I feel as though he is a little sad. He has so much fun with you, Nicki and all his other doggie buddies he has made friends with over the years. I also love the texting I receive on a daily basis letting me know how Oliver is doing. What a relief to know he is having the time of his life.

“My Beagle, Rosie, thinks that spending the night at Doolittle’s Doghouse is her vacation. When she sees the bags packed, and the car ready, the excitement starts to build and reaches a peak when she knows we have pulled up to Tori’s front door. Whether a 2 night stay or a 2 week stay, we are always at ease knowing that Rosie is happy, safe and well loved at Doolittle’s Doghouse.”
– RON COLE
“Having Bailey be able to stay with Don & Jean, a dog loving family, eases our minds when leaving him. We know that he is in great hands and will be cared for as he is at home, which means the world to us. If knowing your dog is happy and safe is important to you, we highly recommend them”.
” Our family has been involved with Tori Levitt’s dog sitting business for approximately 4 years.
We are happy to respond that Tori is the most dog loving, personality invested and caring dog sitter that we have ever experienced.
Her expertise in handling all sizes, all breeds and all personalities is outstanding.
We have given references to several friends and they have all been most impressed with the care and love given to their animal.
We highly recommend Tori Levitt to you as you think about your animal’s care, love, health and welfare.”

We have a picky princess – Lola, a long haired chihuahua. Lola has been a member of Tori’s family for several years, because we travel extensively. Tori provides a second home with a nurturing environment while catering to her finicky eating habits and demanding need for attention. We love Tori (and so does Lola) and would recommend her services to anyone who wants the best care for their pooch!
– KEITH AND SHERRY LONDON
We are so thankful for Doolittle’s Doghouse! Tori always treats little Sophie so sweet. She feeds Sophie her extra special meals three times a day and holds her and lets her sleep with her! While we are away she always sends us little updates and photos of her! It puts our mind at ease while we are out of town that Sophie is being loved and spoiled just as much as if we were there ourselves. She has also stayed with Don and Jean. Again, some of the sweetest people I have met and they took such good care of Sophie. We are so grateful! Thank you!
– Carrie and Sophie
We have been pleased to be able to have our dog, Jackson, stay with you and your son Nash.
I know there are other good kennels, but your house allows dogs to play with each other rather than be in a cage for most of the day. What a difference!
Our dog, like many, spends 99% of his time exclusively with human beings. His stays with you allow him to experience life with his own kind.
– Herb and Marti Nagel
In a nutshell Tori is amazing! We have left our dog, Zoe, with her for short trips and trips that have lasted a couple of months. No matter the length of stay we have always known that Zoe is in the best hands and is getting consistent care. Tori offers personal touches that you just can’t get from the big dog resorts. You will leave knowing that your dog is loved, safe and happy! When we arrive at Tori’s House Zoe jumps out of the car and runs right to the door without looking back. Secretly, I get a little jealous sometimes……she’s that good.

Our Lexi is a rescue who was very shy and scared of people and other dogs before she started enjoying Doggy Day Care with Jacqueline (“Jacquie”). While we wanted to socialize her it was difficult to find quality opportunities where she was exposed to a variety of dogs and people in a safe environment. We found this environment with Jacquie.
Jacquie specializes in bigger breeds and has turned Lexi around 180 degrees. Our neighbors have even commented on how much calmer and well adjusted she seems. In fact, along with Lexi, we’ve recently been able to enjoy brunch on the patio with friends at a local eatery. This would have been impossible before spending time at Jacquie’s! We feel very lucky to have a safe, fun, exciting space for her to learn how to interact in the pack and with people. Thanks Jacquie for all your work with Lexi!!

Had an absolutely awesome experience with boarding the boys at Jim and Marie’s. Met Marie yesterday and found her to be extremely gracious, friendly and warm, just like Jim. The boys have been sleeping almost non-stop since we got home – they seem really worn out from all the excitement!. We were worried that maybe they are bored with us and really miss Leo and Lulu (and Jim and Marie)!!
Anyway, totally enjoyed the pictures that were sent, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about your service and Jim and Marie. We’ll be sure to call again.
Thank you so much,
– Barb and Tony Fiorillo
Hi Tori – Just want to thank you again for the care of Austin and Rose. They sure were tired when they got home! A good nights sleep and they are running around again (as much as they run)!
– Bob Desberg
I just wanted to say thank you again for your help. Margaret and Bill were fantastic and I think the girls miss them. My son picked up the girls so I was not able to thank Margaret and Bill myself. Please let them know we really appreciate their help and taking such good care of Sam and Marley. Thanks again!
– Laura Malinasky
I want to acknowledge and congratulate DOOLITTLE’S DOGHOUSE and their nanny, Jamee Balvin and family, who lovingly took care of my two dogs for 6 weeks. Not only was the day-to-day care exemplary it also included driving the dogs to San Diego Airport and dropping them off at Hawaiian Air Cargo for travel to Honolulu. In order for this to occur, a long list of instructions had to be followed exactly; date driven, as required by the Department of Agriculture and Hawaiian Airlines. If not done correctly several grim outcomes could have occurred: they would not be allowed on the flight, returned to San Diego from Honolulu and/or quarantined.
Both Doolittle’s Doghouse and Nanny Jamee kept me informed on how the dogs were doing and shared with me nice experiences they had with the dogs. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was picking them up at the airport and seeing them for the first time in Hawaii. I could tell they had been well taken care of by their coat, weight and eyes. I thought it was funny that when I let them out of their kennels, rather than jumping on me first, they jumped on each other! They are litter mates and never been separated so they were so happy to see each other. Then I got lots of kisses!
We are all back together and doing well thanks to the great service and coordination of Doolittle’s and Jamee. Now my dogs have to get used to a rambunctious 3 year old running around (my grandson)! If you are looking for a professional and caring dog service, you have come to the right place. Thank you Doolittle’s DOGHOUSE!
– Chris Smith
Tori, we picked up Jasper last night. I highly recommend Jamee and her family. We feel
so good about their service and special attention to Jasper. He loves them and loves their
facilities. Thanks again,
Sadie’s stay with Andrea was great. Sadie warmed up to her very quickly and appeared to be very comfortable. Andrea is very sweet and I would love to have Sadie stay with her again.
Thanks for all your help in placing Sadie in such good hands.
I’ll be calling you again for sure.
Bella’s stay with Andrea, Hugo and Dawn was a great success. She did very well with them and returned to us calm and relaxed – which is unusual after being away from us for so long!
We will definitely book with Andrea again in the future. Thank you for all you help in making this happen.
Warm regards –
What a life-saver you’ve been. Thanks for all the attention you paid to Terra. Thanks from both of us….
Sue, who was host and nanny to our Rufus (see photo) for almost a week at the beginning of August (’12), did a *great* job. With two dogs of her own, she made sure that all three “boys” got along well, that each had his own food, water, toys, etc., and had time outside. I got a call from Sue the first night we were away—assuring me that Rufus was doing fine—and then on average a call about every other day until we got home. Beyond that, after checking with me, Sue bathed Rufus, groomed him thoroughly, and clipped his nails(!) Our nanny was the best, throughout, and Rufus told me himself that he had a wonderful time.
Thanks again for the good care, Tori (& pls thank Sue again for me),
and be well.

Our experience with Doolittle’s Doghouse was wonderful. Even though this was our first experience placing our dogs in a home with someone we had never met we were quickly helped to feel comfortable and confident in every step of the process.
Your friendly and professional contact, informative website, and meet and greet with your well screened nannies gave us the confidence to entrust our two miniature poodles to Doolittle’s Doghouse for a week’s stay. Not only did Micah and Coco’s nannies share their home and recreate all the routines that they were used to, they also shared emails and pictures with us throughout the week to let us know that they were happy and being well cared for.
In addition to the loving, worry free care that our dogs received, the element that really made Doolittle’s Doghouse work for us was the professional business model that allows the customer and caregiver to interact with trust.
The next time we need “a home away from home” for our dogs we will call you!
– Rebecca and Garry
Happy New Year to you!
I was thrilled at the service CQ and Kathy offered. Bokkie had a wonderful week, and CQ was great at keeping me updated on how she was doing.
They were also so accommodating with the times I wanted to drop and pick up Bokkie.
Wonderful people, thank you!
I will definitely let you know when we need their services again.
– Helen – Carefree, AZ
Thank you for sending us Nancy to sit with our dog, Tikki! She was perfect and did a wonderful job. Tikki really loved her.
It was a great relief to have such a caring person to stay with Tikki.
We will be in contact in the near future when we return to Phoenix and Scottsdale.
– Mr. and Mrs. Rogers – Scottsdale, AZ
Thank you so much! Marlyn and Tom are great great!!! It was such a nice experience to have Verona with them while we were gone, was a blessing.
Sure I will recommend it and will consider it while we are in AZ.
Thanks again, it was very very nice.
Have a great day!
We just picked up Tyson and I’m happy to report him & Chance are new best friends!
Tyson is a happy, tired boy. I’m sure the two of them will be missing each other this weekend.
Donna and Bill took such wonderful care of him and we are so thankful 🙂
Thanks again for everything 😉
– Melissa Docherty
I just cannot even express how absolutely grateful I am to have found you…and Mary and Dennis!
Our Delilah is such a light in our lives. We normally don’t like taking extended vacations knowing that our baby girl would be in a kennel the majority of the time. “Playtime” is in a small, inside room with who knows how many other dogs, of course with a cost in addition to boarding fees. When I called you inquiring about “boarding” Delilah, I didn’t realize that that she would be placed in someone’s home with a “nanny.” Your fee is extremely reasonable, even less than some other facilities I was looking into. After speaking with you I absolutely loved the idea of having Delilah stay with a host family. I didn’t think with such short notice you could find us someone so quickly. Within 30 minutes you called me back. Enter your suggestion of Mary and Dennis. We met with them and right away we knew that it was a perfect fit! Not only are Mary and Dennis just wonderful, but their son Alex was so polite and immediately took to playing with Delilah. Delilah pranced in their fenced, grass yard. She ran and played and looked like she belonged there. You could see the joy on her face! When we returned later that evening to drop her off, she ran right up to their front door with no hesitation. She knew where the fun was! We left there knowing that Delilah would be treated as if she was their own, would be well taken care of, have tons of love and attention and have plenty of running room, very important for a 17 mo old boxer. Mary sent me pictures and texts everyday letting me know how Delilah was doing and what they did that day. Every text brought a smile to our family’s face. My son was worried that Delilah was having so much fun she wouldn’t want to come home!
I could go on and on praising “Doolittle’s Doghouse” and our host family. I know that I will never go back to conventional boarding again and will recommend Doolittle’s Doghouse to every pet owner I know! I can only hope to be lucky enough to work with the Farrell family again in the future.
Thank you again,
One extremely satisfied customer,
– Alyssa Fiore
We appreciate, so very much, you making the pet sitting arrangements, especially on such short notice!
Joanne seems very patient and kind. She kept us in the loop on how our two dogs were doing. We think she was a perfect match!
Thank you, again! In the future, I will definitely recommend Doolittle’s to friends or family!!
– Kristen & Tom
Just wanted to let you know how happy we have been to have met Donna and Bill. They are super people and super “Cooper Sitters”.
Dave and I feel very comfortable and confident when we have to leave Coop, knowing that he will be well taken care of. I almost feel guilty when I have to take Cooper from Donna! It took him a few days after this last vacation to get back to normal. I think he really missed Donna.
We have used your services a few times now and definitely will whenever the occasion should arise. And we will always request Donna.
– Sue D
Glad to be home and “rest up a little “!
I e-mailed Jim and Marie and thanked them for caring so much about Sophie, and told them they are #1 on my Sophie sitter list.
Marie e-mailed me back sending along pictures she took of the three “kids” together.
We will tell all our friends looking for a great place for boarding their pet that yours is by far the best!
– Paula Schwartz
Riley totally enjoyed his stay with Arlene and as expected…..she totally spoiled him. Your mission was accomplished…..we were very satisfied. Arlene is a lovely person and she took her assignment very seriously and was committed to quality. We will definitely use her for times that take us out of town and Riley is unable to come with us.
Thanks again ~
We were thrilled by the service provided by Barbara and Ron. Barbara sent us text messages during our trip letting us know how Heinrich was doing. Ensuring that H was safe and comfortable made our vacation even more relaxing. I could tell that they genuinely liked taking care of him. We will definitely use your service in the future and request this family. Thanks for providing this creative service. Please note that I will be dropping your name among my friends with pets.
Jackie took excellent care of Eddie and kept us posted on our trip via email. We will definitely use your service again when we return to the valley next Dec. You were a pleasure to work with as was Jackie.
– Mary Mezich
It was a great experience for us. If we need pet-sitting in the future, we will definitely come to you again. Thanks for everything; the peace of mind is the best gift.
– Lee Muns
Just wanted to let you know that Coco had a great time with Barbara and Ron. They’re lovely people and Andrew & I felt very comfortable having Coco stay with them.
Just wanted to let you know our dog Ginny had a great weekend with Jackie. Jackie sent us updates on how Ginny was doing which were very welcomed!! Ginny came home relaxed and happy!!
We were very impressed and will definitely be utilizing your wonderful services again.
Thank you very much.
– Don and Denise Pettie
Loretta was great…My husband was very impressed with her obvious care and concern for his four girls and our home. We are both looking forward to having her stay with them while we’re on our cruise.
– Cynthia Peterson
Want to tell you that we are back and picked up the boyz from Char and Rich on Sunday.
The boyz enjoyed being with their Auntie and Uncle while Don and I were happy knowing they were safe and well cared for.
The boyz were so relaxed with Char and Rich that they sat with them for a bit — after they had greeted and snuggled with us, of course.
Thank you for creating such a haven of secure care. I’m spreading the word as best I can.
– Brooke, Don & the Boyz
We wanted to thank you for helping us find someone to watch Sammy on such short notice.
After meeting Arlene, we knew that Sammy would be in good hands.
It was nice to go away and not have to worry about his care.
We would certainly use Arlene in the future and I highly recommend Doolittle’s DogHouse.
– Arlene & Roger Brown
Mary-Mike was awesome! She cared for Maggie and Tyson better than we do. They didn’t want to leave and stayed at her side at pick up.
We feel so much more comfortable planning trips and being away now that we have “family” available to care for our dogs.
Thank you so much!
Rufus’ stay with Ray was great. We will use him again and look forward to more out of town trips now we have a temporary home away from home for our boy.
– James Graham
Happy New Year to You!
We had a great trip and thankfully, the weather cooperated. Thank you for all of your help. We enjoyed getting to know Mary-Mike and Rudy enjoyed his stay with her. Our experience was a positive one and we will most certainly use your services in the future. We will also be sure to recommend both Doolittle’s Doghouse and Mary-Mike to anyone we know with a furry family member.
Wishing you continued success in the year ahead.
– Nancy Kenny
We had a wonderful trip and were comforted by the care that Don & Jean were giving Chester & Mandy. It looks to us that they did a wonderful job with the care for our dogs. We will use you again and request Don & Jean.
Got my Birdie back last nite and was so pleased with the care she got with CQ and Cathy-clearly they are real dog lovers and after they let me know she was doing fine with them I was able to relax and enjoy my visit in Boston-mighty cold out there tho and happy to be back in the sun.
Thanks for your efforts in making the connection.
– Pat Bozek
We were so pleased!!!!!
Ed and Nancy were wonderful and we felt so comfortable leaving our pups with them! Lovely, lovely people!
Just want to let you know that everything went well at Jacqueline’s and the dogs all had a great time. I got lots of updates and pictures and they all looked pooped out.
We fly home to Vancouver on Monday.
Have a wonderful Summer and we look forward to working with you again.
I have used Doolittles Doghouse twice for my Dog and both times we have had an excellent experience. The expertise and attention to detail from Tori and her Nanny’s make you feel comfortable so you can leave your loved pet and not have to worry about anything. Even though we would probably pay a million dollars to have this kind of attention, you don’t have to because the service is SO reasonable.
Doolittles Doghouse will always be my #1 pet sitting service.
– Dawn & Rex
Just to let you know how great Bill and Margaret were to my Charlie. As you know, he believes that he is the king of the house and doesn’t want other dogs to get attention so Bill and Margaret were perfect. He seemed to enjoy his stay and looked wonderful when I picked him up—–beautifully combed and brushed just like he came from the groomers. I would recommend Bill and Margaret in Fountain Hills for a home away from home!!!!!!!
Margaret and Bill are awesome, they took great care of Murphy, she was happy. Thank you for coordinating this. In the future I would like them so will try to get requests in early. Thanks!
– Charlie; Murphy’s Mom
I wanted to say THANK YOU! for offering such a great service. Dennis, Mary, Alex & Bear 🙂 were such awesome nannies. Such a great family that took such good care of our sweet 10 month old Ally, who is pretty busy and basically like having a toddler. I received daily texts with photos which made our day! We had such peace of mind being on vacation knowing she was in such good hands. I would HIGHLY recommend Doolittle’s Doghouse and will only use your services from now on. Wish I would have had this option years ago! Thanks again!! Happy Summer!
– Kendra, Scott, Jack, Justin & Ally
Dear Tori, Clarissa & Justin:
Thank you for caring for my “baby” while I was in the hospital. I didn’t have to worry or be concerned because I knew she was being loved and in good hands.
It gave me peace of mind.
Thank you, thank you!
Tori, thank you so much for connecting me with CQ and Kathy. I picked the boys up this morning and they were great. I think their (CQ’s and Kathy’s) personalities were perfect for Max and Calvin and they did a great job of keeping in touch with me. Not surprisingly, Calvin warmed up to them pretty fast, and they seemed to “get” Max and all his energy, despite his 11 years! They are clearly kind and warm folks.
Again, many thanks.
– Andy R.
Hi Tori – I am finally sitting down and getting caught up and organized at home. Our experience with Doolittle’s Doghouse was ideal. Bill and Margaret are wonderful and we have no complaints, just gratitude. Thank you again for being there for us for our vacation, which was wonderful. We will definitely plan to use Doolittle’s in the future.
I had a great trip and of course Charlene was excellent! My fur babies love her! She does a fantastic job… thank you !!
Have a nice day!
– Sherry Stewert
Obie and Lila seemed to do really well at Connie and Leroy’s. They were so much more relaxed and calm when I picked them up than in the past when they stayed at a boarding facility. I think the adjustment period being back home was much faster and easier for them too because they were so much more relaxed. Connie was understanding and attentive to each of their needs which gave me such peace of mind knowing Obie and Lila were in a caring home with someone to look out for them. And without a lot of stress from other dogs, noise, people, etc. Connie sent me pictures and updates to let me know how they were doing while I was gone which I really appreciated. I will definitely use this service again!
Ray was such a gentleman and both my Schnoodles just took to him right away even though one of them is very shy. It was such a great experience. They came home relaxed and happy and that is all we could ask for. He also kept in touch with us the whole time through text. That was such a comfort for us to know our Fur Kids were so cared for. Thank you so much Tori. Barry and I feel like we found the Gem in Scottsdale.
All the Best
– Paula R.
Ray was great! My dogs were so happy when I arrived they didn’t want to leave!
Ray kept me updated daily and on a scale of 1-10, he’s a 25.
His property is well taken care of, well managed and Ray’s personality is so warm and sincere. I didn’t have to call to check up….I had no anxiety whatsoever leaving my boys in his care. I am so pleased, I will use you again!
– Barbara S.
I just wanted to send a sincere thank you for connecting Buddy with Connie & Leroy. Buddy had such a great time and came home a happy dog – I cannot tell you how much it warms my heart that he was safe and loved while we were away. I don’t have any trips planned in the future, but I will most certainly use Doolittle’s again (and hopefully Connie & Leroy if they’re available)!!
Thank you, thank you!
I just wanted to drop you a short note on how impressed I was with Mary and Dennis. They took such great care of Norman and we were so impressed at how attentive they were to us and made us feel at ease when we are so far away. I received numerous pictures of Norman throughout his stay which were always filled with really cute captions. They definitely loved Norman and made him feel at home. I know that their home will soon be filled with a dog of their own, but we absolutely loved working with them!
– Brooke Murren
I wanted to let you know how VERY MUCH we adore T and Jim!!! They took such LOVING CARE of our Charlie and we SO appreciate ALL YOU DID to get him taken such GREAT care of while we were gone!! I will keep referring you and your AWESOME company to anyone I can!! Thank you SOOOOOOO much!! XOXO
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience with your company. You made a last-minute scheduling easy, the home she stayed in and the couple watching her (Jodi & Mitch) were attentive and I felt so comforted knowing Belle was in good hands instead of a crate alone. I will not hesitate to use your service again. Thank you for everything!
– Sarah Becker
Hi Tori—- This was a great experience and you will be hearing from Nutmeg and Honey again. Bre and family were all wonderful people and I’m not sure N & H wanted to come home. Bre kept me informed via Text while I was at the Balloon Festival, which, by the way, was a great weekend—500 balloons took part in the event! Thanks again. Ann
Not only Dug, but John and I were really pleased with Margaret and Bill. During our trip we were worried but still at ease with both of them as we both knew Dug was in great home for the weekend. I highly recommend both Margaret and Bill. We would without a doubt leave our fur babies them with the reassurance that they are loved as we love them.
Again thank you to Tori for the quick response on helping us with our fur baby.
– Monica and John Schroeder
Tamera & Jim instantly put Buddy & Teddy at ease & Mel & I, too!
We couldn’t have been any happier or pleased than we were with them! We were additionally impressed & pleased that Tamera gave Buddy & Teddy Baths on the day we picked them up ~
– Carole, Mel, Buddy & Teddy Bear
Good Morning & Happy New Year!
We are back & Sadie did great with Mary-Mike.
Mary-Mike is such a wonderful person, we love her!
All the best!
– Doron & Barbara
MaryCarol is such a sweetheart and Sadie had so much fun with her and furry friends Pisano and Holly that we decided to expand our own family!
– Ava S
I’ve been meaning to get in touch with you to tell you what a wonderful job Sandy did. She is so patient and kind. Also she is a wonderful communicator. She sent me texts everyday with updates that made me feel so comfortable.
We will definitely use you and Sandy again. Thanks again!
– Dana Thornton
We had a great time (in Rocky Point) and Droid and Casada did very well with CQ and Kathy. We will be happy to take them there again should the need arise. Thanks!
– Charlotte Reynolds
I just can’t say enough about Heather! I was so relieved to have her at my home. And felt so confident with her care. I think Luna misses her, as she has been back to Heather’s room a few times today.
