Doggie Latchkey provides exceptional, professional, and dependable in-house pet sitting service. Denise worked with us to develop a visitation schedule that satisfied our new puppy’s needs and she followed through with great results. We’ve come home to a happy and healthy puppy with improved manners thanks to Denise’s consistent reinforcement of our training program. This gives us the peace of mind and we know our pets are comfortable, secure and safe in their own environment.
Angela did such a wonderful job with our spoiled pets. Loved how we received a text every time y’all came out to take care of all 5 of our pets. Such an awesome feeling knowing that they are well taken care of while on vacation. Peace of mind is good thing while away. The other benefit is the fact you don’t have to worry about them coming back from the kennel sick or tired. No bordetella shot needed either. Savings all around. So on behave of Holly, myself, Koo Koo, Curly, Peca, Woody, & Shadow, Thank you. We will be using y’all again real soon. I highly recommend you to all my friends and family. p.s. Loved the report card thing too!!
My husband and I were so pleased with your services. Jen watched my son’s 2 cats for a week. She gave us twice daily updates with pictures and descriptions of what they were up too. We felt totally comfortable leaving them knowing they were in great hands. We highly recommend your service to anyone needing their animals watched in the comfort of their home. We plan to use your services for our dogs and cats again very soon. Thanks for making our vacation animal stress free!
Chelsea was beyond wonderful in everything she did with/for Maggie while we were gone. She sent us texts and pics so we could see her while we were away. Chelsea even worked on Maggie’s obedience school training everyday. We were MORE than pleased with Doggie Latchkey in every way. Maggie was also happy when we got home without being traumatized while we were gone. We really do look forward to working with Denise and Chelsea again. They were marvelous!
WE LOVE DOGGIE LATCHKEY!! They really treat Brody as if he were their own! Denise is amazing, Phil is amazing, and Jennifer is amazing! Thank you so much for loving Brody and taking great care of him during the day!
I live in downtown Detroit so there aren’t many pet sitters that serve my area, Doggie Latchkey said they would for a very reasonable extra few dollars of fee due to the additional transportation distance. I reached out to the company and they responded to my inquiry right away and 1) confirmed service coverage of my area, 2) confirmed availability for my dates (which included Christmas), and 3) inquired when would be convenient for me to set up a meting before starting the sitting service with my assigned sitter. Doggie Latchkey scheduled an appointment for a meeting exactly during the times I suggested, and then confirmed the appointment a day or so before the scheduled visit. My assigned sitter arrived promptly for the meeting and showed genuine interest in my two cats, including getting down on the floor to try to coax them to play. Both my cats are pretty shy of strangers, but the sitter wasn’t put off at all and was determined to win them over gradually with toys and (approved) treats. I am a bit of a nervous pet owner so I had a ridiculous number of details I wanted to go over, the sitter went through every one of my details with me and took copious notes. The sitter even offered to check mail or turn lights on/off while I was away. Doggie Latchkey and I agreed on a price and they provided me with a clearly detailed invoice so I understood exactly what I was paying and what services I would receive. I would rate the price as competitive with other pet sitting services, not cheap, but not unreasonable since I am asking someone to come all the way to my house every day including Christmas. It turned out that I had some trouble getting my holiday travel dates nailed down and due to weather had to make a last minute shift of my dates, Doggie Latchkey was very accommodating and helped me to make sure my kitties were cared for despite my last minute changes. While I was out of town, I received an email (she offered text, but I preferred email) from the sitter each and every day giving me a quick update on how her visit went, when she changed the litter in the box, etc. Additionally, I happen to have a nanny cam installed in my home, which allowed me to keep an eye on the kitties. Every day I saw that they had filled food bowls, toys moved around, and the kitties were safe and sound. When I got home the sitter had cleaned the used dishes so things were tidied up.
We are so thankful for your consistency and kindness to us and to Larry. He is a pretty needy dog and I know he loves being with Phil. We always know he is in good hands with Phil and we feel comfortable having him train and take care of Larry. He is always open to fielding questions and suggestions and is so kind in his response. We hope that you and your family had a great Christmas and we wish you a Happy New Year! Thanks again for everything!
We now refer to our Doggie Latchkey sitters as Uncle Marc and Aunt Kat. After relocating from another state for a very demanding job Doggie Latchkey came to the rescue with Marc and Kat. They have gone beyond the call of standard duty for our furry children. Our dogs Jake and Sammi love them so much! They even took Sammi to doggie emergency when she got into things she should not have before the sitter arrived. To say that “Uncle Marc and Aunt Kat” give us comfort when we have to be gone is an understatement. Thank you Doggie Latchkey!!!
Dianne was wonderful. It was easier to go on vacation knowing someone was watching over “the kids”. My meeting with Dianne put me at ease, it was obvious she loved caring for cats. Molly does not come out when strangers are in the house, yet Dianne still managed to make a sighting. I think Max is still waiting for Dianne to come through the door to play with him. It was also nice knowing someone was checking on the house. I will without doubt use Doggie Latchkey in the future.
My dog sitters were extremely reliable and sent me feedback and a picture after every visit, which ensured me that my girls were cared for and given the attention their used to getting while I was away. I would definitely use the service again and highly recommend it to those who are considering using Doggie Latchkey!
