I can’t recommend them more highly. We have used them twice for week long trips for our four dogs (two of whom are special needs and have medical problems- and need multiple pills etc.). They are very attentive to all of our dogs and report back on each visit with an email and photos of the dogs to let us know how they are doing. On this most recent visit our dog Sadie got a random spider bite in the house and when the sitter arrived she noticed immediately that Sadie had a swollen face and eye. She was able to get ahold of my husband and took her to our vet immediately and she was treated and stayed overnight in order to get an IV and more steroids the next morning. I believe it saved her life as the swelling may have compromised her airway. I can’t thank them enough for their attention to detail and their love of animals which is evident in the way they care for our pets. A million thanks and my sterling recommendation!

Where do I begin?? I am SOOO grateful to VPS for taking care of my baby kitty while I was on vacation for 2 weeks. I was so nervous beforehand. I normally leave him with relatives but since we took an entire family trip I was scrambling to find someone reliable to take care of my cat. I didn’t want to board him as the anxiety of us leaving him for 2 weeks was going to be enough let alone having to move him locations. Having friends or neighbors watch him is not the most reliable. I found VPS on this very Yelp app and after interviewing a different company and reading their reviews and testimonials I decided to go for it. VPS is not the cheapest but you do get what you pay for. They provide a complimentary consultation meet and greet and are licensed and insured as well as extremely professional. They have a few documents for signature which I liked, since they are a professionally run organization and not a mom and pop shop. I liked that they have a full staff and backup sitters in case of an emergency, since most other companies don’t offer that. Leading up to my departure and for the beginning of my vacation I was having a lot of anxiety about leaving my cat. VPS was extremely responsive at all times and eased my worries immediately. I was stressed that maybe I came off a little too annoying as I was constantly emailing them but they were extremely pleasant and calming and responded to my emails right away, assuring me that my baby was in the best hands. My two sitters sent me photos and an email update every single day. It’s so nice to get those while you are away! They came at around the same time every day and played with with kitty, fed him, changed his water and litter and brought in the mail. They even took out the trash and watered my plants. I can’t say enough good things about VPS and will 100% use them again. Thank you Kristen, Chris and Fiorella! You have a customer for life!!! – Doreen L. Oak Park 2018

Absolutely amazing! They take excellent care of all your pets, send you e-mail and photos to keep you in the loop. They are flexible, giving you choices about how often they visit, and are respectful of your home. They are helpful, organized and reliable. I was so stress free because of the care they gave my fur babies. I have three cats, a very ornery dog and a parrot. They not only cleaned the cat box, they also took it to the outside garbage so the house did not smell. They also played with my dog and gave him lots of loving. I highly recommend them to anyone needing pet care. – Karen S. Winnetka 2017

I love Valley Pet Sitting. Been using them for a few years now. They are always responsive, even on very short notice. The sitters are responsive and take care of your pets with the utmost sincerity and are very respectful of your home. I couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough. The only problem with them being this good is that I know they’ll expand and get more in demand… but that’s a selfish thought, you guys rock!! Thanks for all your help! – Michael A. Encino 2017

All I have to say if you are looking for a pet sitter, Valley Pet Sitting is by far the agency you should definitely use!!!! We just returned from a vacation which unexpectedly was extended an entire week due to a medical emergency. Valley Pet Sitting cared for our cat and our apartment with the highest level of care!!!! Their daily communication emails and pictures let you know how much they care for your pet, but also their prompt interaction via text or email if there are additional questions or assistance you need for them is unparalleled!!!! I can’t say enough about Valley Pet Sitting!!!! They are THE BEST!!!!! – Jennifer M. Northridge 2016

“Dear Human Reading This Screen,
My name is Queen Bug, and I am the world’s most regal, amazing, beautiful, fluffiest cat. My humans leave me from time to time (good riddance to the lady of the house who claims SHE is the queen. I know better), but I never worry because the staff of Valley Pet Sitting are always there to be royal subjects in my kingdom. They always feed me on time, they scoop my poop (mwahahahaha!), and they only take pictures of my good side…which is every side, just so you know. I hear that they then email my human slaves my photos to admire and adore. I love the staff of the Kingdom of the Valley of Pet Sitting. Madame Shira is simply wonderful and always makes sure I have the very best in care and love. Now where is my mouse? I must go play with my mouse on a stick. Signed, The royalest of felines, the queen of the clowder, Her Majesty Bug ” – Kirsten S. Oak Park 2015

“I just came back from a two week trip and Valley Pet Sitting saved the day!  I found out a few weeks prior to my trip that the pet sitter I’ve used in the past could not sit for this trip.  I was really worried and located Valley Pet Sitting through all of the positive remarks in Yelp. I sent an email and just a few minutes later (I sent it at night, after business hours I might add) I received an immediate response back. That was just the beginning of the great experience to come. Shira and Jess are extremely professional.  Sandra was my pet sitter and she was awesome.  She not only gave the kitties fresh food and water everyday, she also took care of the liter, threw out the remains of the liter and food, and even watered my plants!  I stopped my mail from coming, otherwise she would have taken in the mail too. During my trip I received daily updates, photos, and even videos.  It really made me feel much better knowing that they were in such good hands. My one kitty made a bit of a mess, but Sandra took care of that with no problem.  I came home to a clean house, clean liter, and happy cats. I will use this service for all of my trips in the future – I travel quite a lot. I highly recommend them. I am very impressed by their professional approach, billing (I used credit card and was billed on a weekly basis), prompt replies, the updates (videos and pictures), and just overall pride in the job and love for animals.  They are prepared for everything.  The whole team completely exceeded my expectations and I am over the moon I found them.” – Donna C. Woodland Hills 2014

“Shira and her team do a great job taking care of my pups. I’ve noticed that every time my dogs meet one of her sitters, they immediately fall in love with them. Valley Pet Sitting has been very flexible and they make every effort to meet my last minute requests for someone to walk or stay with my dogs.  Also love the fact that I get regular updates and pics when they are taking care of them so I know how things are going. The prices are very reasonable. 5 star service!”

“Shira took care of my “boyz” while I was in the hospital. My kitties were well taken care of by Shira. I feel comfortable in knowing that my babies are in such good hands. I will be going out of the country for a couple of weeks I know they will be taken care of with TLC.”
– Bonnie R. Woodland Hills 2012

“I was really apprehensive about leaving my dogs with anyone because they are literally my two sons. They have never been apart from me, so I really didn’t know where to turn. I was going into the hospital in a few days, so I had to make a quick decision. I emailed about four other pet sitting services before I found Valley Pet Sitting. I emailed Shira and my email was promptly returned agreeing to a ‘meet and greet’ with about two days notice. I felt very comfortable talking to her during the meeting. She answered all my questions and told me what services she provided. My dogs gave her the sniff test and we decided to take a chance. I’m happy to say she has emailed me twice a day, while I’m in the hospital, to let me know how they are doing. Shira is doing everything she promised in the interview, so I can highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs. She even took photos so I could feel like they were with me. The rates are very reasonable for the great service you receive and the peace of mind is priceless.
