I would not hesitate to use Doggie Latchkey again. They are a very professional company and they are well able to handle even the most difficult pets. Dorit provided full services for my German Shepherd, Lucy, (who is an abused rescue) and Lucy did very well. This included an overnight stay. I was away for major surgery and when I returned home I found everything clean and in its place, which was such a great help to me. Additionally, this was during the Christmas holiday and no other pet sitting service I contacted would help me, but Doggie Latchkey came through.
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.
Couldn’t be happier with the level of dedication and professionalism. Great job, Denise and Phil. So glad I’ve found you!
We have been using Doggie Latchkey for the past year and we are so pleased with the service we receive. Never having used a pet sitter before, I was incredibly nervous, but when Stacy came to meet our furry babies before the first pet visit, I was so relieved to know that such a kind individual would be taking care of our babies. We have three small dogs and a cat, so travel has been hard with them, but Doggie Latchkey makes it easy. We often have to leave for a weekend at the last minute, and the service has been most excellent in working with us on last minute trips. When we are away, Stacy often sends me text photos so I know everyone is doing well, and her text updates are always so comforting. I have told my out-of-state relatives about Doggie Latchkey, and they tell us how lucky we are to be able to trust someone with our pets, and we are so lucky to have found Doggie Latchkey. I highly recommend their service for your furry family members.
We have used the services of Doggie Latchkey for over a year now and are very happy and relieved to have them care for our German Shepherd Max. Denise has been wonderful with Max. She is very professional, reliable and caring. Max is very fond of her and is always excited to go out with her. Engaging the services of Doggie Latchkey helps us keep Max at home, in his own comfortable environment while we are away. Denise sends us an update after every visit and the updates are pretty detailed. We would recommend Doggie Latchkey to anyone who needs a caring petsitter.
After three weeks in a new home, we had to make a last minute trip out of state. Our dogs were still adjusting to their new surroundings and we didn’t want to board them and send them to another new place. Doggie Latchkey was the perfect fit. Jennifer was absolutely wonderful! She kept us completely informed about our dogs through text messages and pictures! Our spoiled babies always sleep with us and Jennifer let them sleep with her even lifting our arthritic, 16 year old cocker spaniel on the bed since he’s unable to jump up on the bed anymore. We have always used family and neighbors to care for our dogs while we were gone, I feel our dogs were much happier and more comfortable with Jennifer taking care of them. I can’t thank Doggie Latchkey enough for the fantastic service
I Highly recommend Doggie Latchkey! I recently broke my leg and have 2 spoiled doggies that I needed help with. One is extremely temperamental and does not get along very well with most people. From day one I felt totally at ease with the way my dogs took to “Sharon”. She has so helped to make a terrible situation very tolerable!! I would not hesitate to call again! Thank you Sharon and Doggie Latchkey!
Denise and her staff have been the best pet service I have used in the last 15 years and I’ve used three. Molly absolutely loves them and is always happy and worn out (a good thing for a pit bull) when I get home. I don’t know what I would do without her considering my work and performance schedule! They have been a life saver, especially when I have last minute needs!
This is a great service. I don’t have to worry when I go to work that my dog will be well taken care of when they stop by. My dog loves them too. I have learned so much about dogs that I didn’t know (being a first time dog mom)…this company is very flexible and easy to work with. I am also using the “trainer” service they offer and its been great!
I am more than satisfied with the services that I have recieved from Doggie Latchkey over the past year. I have 3 senior pets, a boston terrier, Madeline, and two rescue cats, Nieko and Savannah. Doggie Latchkey came into my life when my current pet service which I had used for years was not working out. Needless to say, I was very apprehensive about entrusting the well being of my beloved pets to someone new. After some research, I contacted Doggie Latchkey. I honestly could not be more happy. I know that my pets are in excellent hands when I am working long hours are unable to be with them . My boston is 15 years old and recently had a medical emergency. Suzanne, our primary caretaker from Doggie Latchkey did not hesitate to take control of the situation and do all the right things. She went above and beyond to make sure that Madeline was safe. I am impressed with the kindness, compassion and professionalism that Suzanne, and the entire team at Doggie Latchkey demonstrates on a continuous basis.When I’m unable to be with my pets, I know that they are in excellent and loving hands with Doggie Latchkey.
