We have used Distinctive Petsitting many times with overnight care and day visits for our cat Lucky. This is our first family pet and unfortunately she has had some health issues from the start-as such, we needed to find a pet sitter who was not only reliable but also knowledgeable about cats and potential health issues. From the first moment we spoke to Lisa, we were put at ease with her professionalism, real understanding of animals and how she empathized with our desire to find a very nurturing pet-sitter. She described to us very specifically how Distinctive Petsitting operates and we then set up a home visit with Angela. We were impressed with how organized and thoroughly Angela reviewed all of the details asking us many questions about Lucky, her schedule, our home, preferences, etc. We then went through the house for a "tour" to show her where everything was located for not only Lucky but also for Angela during her nightly stays. The first time we used Distinctive Petsitting we were blown away by a daily "report" on Lucky which also included a checklist of all the items Angela did for that day i.e. changing water, clean litter box, etc. Since then, Angela has stayed at our house many times for Distinctive Petsitting she is always very accessible when we are away -by text, phone or email. It wonderful to get photos of your furry little family member when you are far away. Lisa & her team have been amazing to work with over the past 2 years!!

Lisa and her entire team are fantastic! From the moment we met Lisa, we knew we'd found a quality service and people who are truly passionate about what they do and the animals they care for. I was genuinely impressed from the initial contact, the in-home consultation, and pet sitter introduction. But, what sealed the deal that we'd found our forever pet sitters were the updates while we were away during our first experience with Distinctive Petsitting. Anyone can layout a great plan, but the execution is what's really telling. From our very first experience, we get personalized, detailed updates, they are always on time and spend quality time with our pet! Every pet sitter at Distinctive Petsitting we've had has taken the time to get to know our dog, his unique personality, and cared for him like he was their own. There is consistency in their process, which is comforting. We can tell Lisa is committed to providing a positive, predictable experience for customers that exceeds expectations and leaves our minds at ease when we're away. I can't speak highly enough about Distinctive Petsitting. If you are looking for people who are thorough, loving, and sincere in their care for animals look no further than Lisa and her team!

We are admittedly very picky when it comes to our petcare. We have a sweet dog who has horrible anxiety. Unfortunately, we can't always take him on overnight trips with us. We ALWAYS know that he is in great hands with Distinctive Petsitters. We have used other companies in the past, but Lisa and her team are true professionals and she seems to only hire the best! It is a weight off of our shoulders when we know our pet is being taken care of when we can't be at home with him. You won't use anyone else after you start using Distinctive!

I use this company for all of my pet sitting needs + will continue to do so. They are always on time, responsive, and will work with you to ensure the job you're needing is indeed the service they are providing. My personal dog walker, Candace, does a fabulous job. She seems to genuinely care about both of my dogs, Ricky and Sam, always willing to take the extra mile going above and beyond. I'm very pleased I gave this a try and will remain a customer for years to come!

Distinctive Petsitting, Inc. When I was searching for a company to provide care for my two pet boys I interviewed about half dozen companies before I made my decision. During the process of looking for a pet sitter, I couldn't imagine that we would be able to find a company that would love and care for our pets with the same level of detail that we provide as a family. When the owner of Distinctive Petsitting, Inc., Lisa, arrived at our home in January of 2017 to meet our pets and interview us, I knew right away that her commitment to the responsibility of caring for our pets was superior. The excellent level of care and thoughtfulness that we have received from Lisa and her pet sitters has proved to be the hallmark of our experience on a weekly basis, as well as through more intense periods of pet sitting when we are out of town.
Weekly Pet Care for two elderly pets since January 2017: 14 -year-old pug with arthritis who is nearly blind and deaf: 16-year-old cat who has high blood pressure and is nearly blind. Overnight care since March 2017 for trips away ranging from three-ten days over the last year. Pet sitters dispense medication for each of our pets, walk and play with the dog, give the cat sponge baths and provide genuine love and affection to each of these old critters.

Distinctive Petsitting has been caring for my puppies for more than 6 months and I could not be happier. Lisa, the owner, is responsive, caring and accessible. Blair, their coordinator, seems never to get ruffled no matter how many last minute changes I request! But I really want to rave about Jimmie and Amanda who come visit and play with my Yorkies, Sky and Max. They walk them, play, snuggle and have even worked with my very finicky Max when he won't eat. I have been home unexpectedly when each of them has been there and I can see that my pups love both of them! I work crazy hours and occasionally travel and I have no hesitation whatsoever to leave them in such good hands. Five Stars!

Jodi, thank you for sharing your experiences with Distinctive Petsitting. It is a special honor to serve a pet parent who has served our country. Lisa H.
Barb took excellent care of our kitty over the holiday. As a former pet sitter, I have to say she has provided the best pet sitting to our kitty that we have ever had. Lisa and Barb return calls/emails promptly and were on time for the initial interview. Barb texted us each day to let us know our kitty was doing fine. Will definitely use again and recommend to others.

We used Distinctive Petsitting for our 2 17 year old cats during a recent vacation. Mechelle was wonderful. She left detailed notes letting me know how the cats were when she came by each day. She even managed to win over our cat that doesn't really like anyone. I highly recommend this service and will be using them again in the future.

I have used several pet sitting services in the last 10 years. I found Distinctive Pet Sitting last fall on a recommendation from a co-worker. Since September, 2012 I have used them for daily walks and overnight stays. The owner, Lisa, has been great to work with and they helped me out of a jam last December when I needed to go out of town quickly. The sitters have been great - true dog lovers. My two dachshunds are much happier and isn't that what pet parents are most concerned about? Thanks Distinctive Pet Sitting!!!

I needed to find a new pet sitter and was nervous since I have an older dog. Looking thru a lot of ads and talking to a few I decided to go with Distinctive Petsitting. I know I made the right choice after the 1st visit. Tari is Sable's Pet Sitter and I know she loves her. Tari spoils her with walks and extra petting. It's a relief to come home to read the notes about each visit. Tari leaves thorough comments as my dog's behaviors have been changing. I don't feel nervous using Distinctive Petsitting.

In my experience, the folks at Distinctive Petsitting really care about animals and provide great customer service. Through working with them, I have come to know the owner over the past 2 years and am impressed with the amount of personal attention she gives each client. The service really brings peace of mind for busy animal lovers.

Distinctive Petsitting is truly distinctive. When we travel, we never worry about our "girls." I love coming home to Tari's "love notes" telling me what went on while we were away. I can tell that our kitties were well-loved and cared for by the way they look at me and say, "Oh, you're home. Where's Tari?"

I am not only a Distinctive Petsitter, but I use this company for my own pets. Believe me, that's the best thing that can be said about a pet care company by someone that directly knows the way things actually go behind the scenes. I am a very particular pet parent, and I have total faith in my Petsitter, Krissy or anyone else that might sub for her. In fact, the things that go on that clients don't see would amaze them! We always give extra touches and care to the pets and the client's home. Not only do I love my Petsitter, but I get to witness first hand the way Lisa runs her business. Lisa truly cares about each and every client, and, of course, she is a true and avid pet lover. Lisa always goes the extra mile to get clients what they need when they need it. I've worked for those people that only do something if it directly benefits their bottom line, but Lisa is much more focused on pleasing clients and building a long-lasting rapport. Her dedication and constant availability amaze me. I know I always have her support at any moment should I have a question out in the field. There is nothing like getting to spend your days working with pets, but l, after spending years working for various companies dealing with pets, I have come to the firm resolution that I will never work for a company I do not believe in. Distinctive Petsitting truly represents the dedication, care, and positive philosophy that I can put my name on.

Distinctive Petsitting, from the very beginning, made me feel very secure about leaving my mastiff in their care. Our sitter was carefully chosen by Lisa and was THE PERFECT fit for our 115 pound boy! This company is very professional, very thorough, and very personable. I won't bother going anywhere else for pet-sitting services. They are THE BEST!!!
