We recently moved from Florida to Georgia and had to find a new pet sitter for our two cats. After reading reviews and interviewing a couple different sitters, we chose GPW. Melanie came to our home and our cats warmed up to her immediately. She was very thorough in asking questions about our cats as far as their likes and dislikes and their routine. We met with Robin on a second occasion and this reaffirmed that we had made the right decision and it was evident they both enjoy what they do. Melanie texted us every day with a detailed update and sent us pictures. We felt very confident that our babies were in good hands with Melanie. Melanie even went as far as to sweep up the room where the cats food/water dishes and litter box were located and the surrounding area to insure that we can home to a clean home. She was awesome and we would not hesitate for one second to recommend GPW and Melanie in particular. Thank you for loving care and giving us the peace of mind to go out of town and know our kitties would be well taken care of.

We have been customers of Gwinnett Pet Watchers for the past 7 yrs. and we love the attention to detail that our 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (Lily - 9 yrs & Macy 7 yrs) have gotten. We had the chance to got on a short weekend vacation with friends to Key West Fl. and with 3 days notice, we had daily visits & 3 overnight stays set up. We met Jennifer C. who was already well informed on our girls and Lily's Heart Murmur and the med's that she was taking. We had no worries that "Our Girls" were in good hands. Kristen is our current dog walker, she took care of the daily visits and Jennifer C. took care of them overnight. They were able to maintain a normal routine with the girls and when we returned, the girls gave us lots of kisses, but did not seem to even notice that we had been gone for 4 days. What a FANTASIC JOB That Gwinnett Pet Watches did for us. Thanks, Patrick & Paige H.

I don't just let anyone watch my dog. After meeting Robin and Melanie, I felt confident that I could leave Gizmo in their hands. He warmed up to Melanie right from the start. She sent us text messages on each one of her visits. I fully trust Melanie to watch my dog and would 100% recommend her to watch your pet too. - Pixie - Jan 2017

I have been using GPW for over a year now and I can't say how stress free things are. I know when I am gone that my dogs are well taken care of and that I don't need to worry. They clean up any accidents, give my senior dog her meds, and most importantly love animals!
I use them for 2-3 30 minute visits while traveling.

Just wanted take time out to post a review on this company. I am so glad I chose several years ago to Google pet sitters near me. The one and only I clicked on felt right from the first meeting with Robin. We feel very comfortable and thankful having them in our home taking care of our for legged family members. Any time I have needed them I have been able to contact either Robin or Jennifer of which both are amazing souls. Thank you for what you do!!!! I will NEVER use any one else.

We used GPW for the first time last week while we headed out on Vacation. It is always hard leaving our 2 cats. Debbie made it possible for us to thoroughly relax and enjoy our trip. We received daily texts and even pictures of our fur babies. We could not have asked for a better experience than we received. Even our scaredy cat girl came out to say hello! We are so glad we found them. Very pleased from beginning to end. What a peace of mind knowing your pets are in the hands of such awesome people. Thanks for everything. We would rate you 10 stars if we could!

GPW and Zoa H. were everything I could have wanted for my pups while I was away. From the initial inquiry up until the time I got home from my trip, they delivered the utmost customer service and quality care I could have asked for. Constant communication and understanding, loving care to my pups, and updates while I was away made my trip so worth it!! I was stress free and worry free the entire time. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants their beloved pets to be treated no differently than if you yourself were taking care of them. There are only 5 stars, but I'd rate them a 10!! Thank-you GPW!!!!

Christa took such great care of our cats while we were out of town for Christmas! We loved getting updates from her and knew our fur-babies were in good hands!!

After a very bad experience with Critter Sitters, I was referred to Gwinnett Pet Watchers by a friend. We recently vacationed overseas for 8 days. Lisa cared for my 3 dogs. She is awesome! We over her and Robin!!! Lisa sent me text messages, and pictures daily. She bonded with my dogs, even my little Dolly, who has a hard time trusting. I cannot say enough good things about Gwinnett Pet Watchers. My experience with Critter Sitters left me feeling guilty about leaving my dogs, but Lisa turned that around. She truly cares. After I explained my awful experience to Robin, she assured me that they would make sure that my dogs would be well cared for. That's exactly what they delivered. Love these folks!!

Our 4 kids (cats) aren't always comfortable around new people but when Robin & Lisa came over for the first visit, our youngest felt safe enough to walk up and rub all over them. In fact he ended up following Lisa around during her visits. His reaction made us feel confident they were being well taken care of. The texts & pictures Lisa sent after each visit were great. When we arrived home, he looked like he was saying "Glad you're home but where's Lisa?" We didn't expect all of the extras, such a wonderful surprise. We were so impressed with the professionalism and the true concern shown that we've already booked 3 more weekends. Wish we'd made that call sooner but so happy that we finally did! Don't wait to call them, can't imagine you'd ever be unhappy you did!

First of all there is nobody better than Gwinnett Pet Watchers. We have been with them for almost 10 years. I would not have my four legged kids be with anyone else than Gwinnett Pet Watchers. They set the schedule for your babies. Everyday your getting texts and pictures of your babies. Our babies love Gwinnett Pet Watchers more than us I believe. Robin and Jennifer and the rest of the staff are wonderful. I am very protective of my babies but I think at times they like Gwinnett Pet Watchers than us cause they are spoiled while we are gone. Please give them a chance I have referred several people to Gwinnett Pet Watchers.

We moved to Lawrenceville from Virginia this summer, and planned to take a trip overseas to see family over Christmas. We needed to find care for our 8-year-old dog and 14-year-old cat. In Virginia, when we took such trips, we boarded our pets. However, they were getting on in years and we decided they would be more comfortable in their own home. Plus, we wanted to have someone check in on the house while we were gone. We decided to go with Gwinnett Pet Watchers and it was easily one of the best decisions we ever made! Christa did everything we requested and then some. Her daily email updates ( sometimes with pictures!) kept us connected and informed. She went above and beyond to make sure our pets were comfortable and well cared for. She even made an extra unscheduled trip ( that we were not billed for) to check on my dog, who was traumatized by thunderstorms. When we came home, the house was so clean, it was like we never left. I should also add that the price is more than reasonable, especially compared with boarding individual pets. We are really glad to have found GPW and will be using them for all our future petsitting needs. No more agonizing over pet care on future vacations!

I like the ability to schedule visits for my cat online and pay via Pay-pal. Very convenient. The sitter performed all the visits as scheduled, and I felt very comfortable with her. Thanks!

I don't even know where to begin with this review. To say that Robin is awesome is a terrible understatement. This woman has a staff full of people who care about animals as much as she does. At this a licensed and bonded pet sitting and dog walking business they go the extra mile and will pick up and drop off animals at the vet. My mother needed exactly this service recently because of back surgery, and not only did Robin take care of that but she is also helping my mother trap animals so that they can be spayed and neutered. Robin's service does it all! Oh and I forgot to mention she has a heart of gold :-) She's been extra kind to my mom. Thanks for everything Robin!

At Gwinnett Pet Watcher we work hard to conserve the plant's resources by using recycled materials whenever possible. All sitters carry biodegradable waste bags and we use an online scheduling software for our clients and our sitters to save paper. We are always aware of how we effect our environment, and work hard to leave any area we visit better then we found it.
