Recommendations for Connie R
Connie, as well as her team, Barbara and Todd, are experts in the care of pets, be it dogs, cats, or birds and fish! The love that they share with the animals is anticipated with excitement when the animals know that any one of them will be with them. Connie, Barb or Todd are always on time, very trust worthy, and they are MORE than responsible and reliable. They employ strict attention to detail with meals, walks and love and hugs, and also have no problem with administering meds when needed. They are ALL great surrogates!! We never have to worry about the animals getting enough love and attention; and to top it all off, the house is always in better shape when we return than it was when we left. Many many thanks to a wonderful, and very caring team!
Barb, Connie and Todd have stayed with our Yorkies for over three years and we don't have to worry about anything when away. We will continue to use them again and again for our travel plans in the future. They truly cater to the animal and whatever they need, even if they are sick - they are so caring and patient. Lastly, they even though they were fully booked, they stayed with them extra nights because they didn't want the dogs to be alone, as our flights were canceled due to a blizzard! Thank you so much you guys. I highly recommend them for all your sitting needs and when we come home it's as if no one was ever there. The detail to leaving the house clean is better than a cleaning company would do. They are excellent.
I can truthfully say Connie and her team are exceptional!!! The three of them love dogs, cats and all animals and go to great lengths to take care of the pets entrusted to them. They are dependable, trustworthy and honest and you will never have to worry about leaving your beloved pet in their care.
The short version: If you want to truly relax on your vacation and not worry about your animals while you're away, hire these 3 people. They are highly organized and caring dog sitters. They treated our dog like he was part of their family and kept me at ease while I was away with updates and photos. The long: Our dog, Duke, has been asked to leave more than one boarding facility for being "difficult." He has separation anxiety, trouble with thunderstorms and loud noises and strangers. These sitters were the first to actually listen to me regarding his high-maintenance needs and instead of backing out, they completely embraced him for who he is: a lovable pup! They had me fill out a very thorough questionnaire before he stayed with them. It covered everything! They used that info and what I told her about his anxieties and came up with a plan to keep him happy, comfortable and feeling secure. While I was away they emailed me updates and photos, so that I could truly relax and enjoy my trip, knowing that my dog was in excellent care. I can't say enough great things about our experience with them. They truly opened up their hearts and home for our dog and made him part of the family while we were away.
Barb, Connie and Todd are the absolute best and I'm so grateful for them. I was heading out of town for 17 days, never having left my two babies in the care of anyone. When we realized they were too far away from me to do a drop in and after seeing the spotlessly clean home, I knew they would be safe and in great hands. 24/7 care was out of my budget, but she was flexible and we found a daily rate that worked well for us both, which was incredibly helpful. After 15 days on vacation out of the country, I had to extend my travel plans due to a funeral and they were more than accommodating. The boys stayed an extra five days and they went above and beyond to work with my travel plans. The boys were all packed up and ready to head home when I arrived. I was sent updates by email and I didn't worry about a thing. They are true animal lovers and I felt so secure leaving my boys with them. I will absolutely hire them again and if they're available, you won't regret working with them. They will treat your babies like the fur kids they are to you!
I've known Connie for almost 40 years as a great friend and her profile is 100% true. I've seen her many times caring for dogs, a huge goldfish, etc and she is very dedicated to her job and really enjoys it. She has was very helpful when my husband died cleaning my house before company came, helped with the funeral, etc. She once came over and cleaned by porch after a hailstorm once. I never asked for help but she just showed up and pitched in. Not many friends, family, etc would ever do this including me. I'm very lucky to have meet her and to have continued our friendship for so long. Her sister and son are also wonderful. I'm sure you will find her extraordinary.

These are hard working, mature and very responsible people. All three came to the interview and I knew I didn't have to interview anyone else. I was completely at ease leaving my two older, one sickly, dog with them for three weeks while out of the country. I've used them several times now and hope they're around for years to come.
Connie and 'the gang' (Barb, Todd) have been house/pet sitting for us for several years now. And we varied from one to three dogs at a time. The dogs love them and get excited when they come to visit or stay. The dogs are more than taken care of (pampered to no end) and the house is always spotless when we get home. They are totally reliable and have handled any emergencies when they have come up (for instance we could not get home one trip because of the snowstorm Denver had and were a couple of days later than we were supposed to be) . I would highly recommend them to anyone because of their love for animals and abilities to handle unexpected circumstances. Plus they are really fun to talk to - they have been up a few times just to visit and chat, which is always enjoyable and entertaining. We got a new puppy a few weeks ago and they all came up right away to meet her. She was excited to meet them too, and that makes two dogs we have now. Anytime we plan on going anywhere, whether overnite or longer, I will always use them if they are available. You can't go wrong -
We had never left our precious LuLu before heading out of the country for a couple of weeks so I was very anxious. We chose this family for care because of the wonderful reviews we read. Our anxiety was all for naught as we came back to a dog that was even more vibrant than when we left! The other reviews are spot on and they are really as terrific as everyone says. LuLu was very well taken care of and very happy! These 3 have very quickly become like family members to us! We are so happy and relieved to have them in our lives and to no longer have anxiety over traveling. Thank you to each of you!!
Wonderful is about all I can say. These 3 people saved the day for me. I should say saved the week of my vacation. My original sitter cancelled at the last minute and I was headed to Mexico with no one to leave my dogs with. I didn't want to kennel them because of problems with kenneling one time before. They kept me updated, sent pictures and I came home to a really clean home. They even mowed the lawn!! I highly recommend these three. The fact that they have each other for support is great in and of itself.
I would highly recommend Barb Connie or Todd. All three are just great pet sitters. Reliable and responsible! We left with no cares at all knowing that our animals were going to be well taken care of and get lots of loving attention. Give them a try I think you'll be very impressed. Being there are two additional people as backup is very reassuring.
I've read the reviews from other people and can agree with all of them. I've known Connie and Barb for over 40 years and think very highly of their honesty, reliability, and compassion for people and animals. They foster animals and care for people that most people wouldn't give a second look at. They are great people and will give your animals wonderful care and love. They can be trusted completely.
Great people, great animal lovers. I can't really add much more than what others have already stated. Salt of the earth people, honest as the day is long. A plus is that they have each other for backup.
Connie, Barb and Todd are the best!! They rescued me when I was at my wits end after my regular sitter left me high and dry. I would recommend any one of these three for just about any animal. Their love of animals is so apparent. I can't say much more than others have already said. They are as good as the bio says and all the others who have reviews on here.
Barbara helped us with our 3 cats, for 6 visits over 3 days' time. We got daily updates which are ridiculously important to us. (We had been using a chain pet sitting service out of Denver which refused to provide daily updates or weekend business communication, which is absolute rubbish. When you pet sit that day, you should be available to communicate with - I found out that a regular shortage of staff/sitters was an issue and I had an issue with bad service and a defensive sitting service owner, so I stopped using them). Barb was great! She showed up for the initial meet-and-greet as promised. She even asked about the water shut-off valve and some other important things which no pet sitter previously had bothered to ask about. We took her through the house to show here where everything was and that indeed we had three cats (sometimes during visits the cats hide so sitters need to know that you have the number of pets stated for safety reasons). She was pleasant and great to talk with. We received daily email updates as promised. When we got home the place was very clean and everything was in order - water bowls, food bowls, litter boxes, lights, heat, etc. and the place was clean, holy smokes. We made sure we left a good tip since we suspected from the initial meeting that she was going to be very thorough, and we were right! We plan on using these folks for a couple of weeks in the summer if they're available. Having a regular pet sitter that you know is really important to us (we don't want strangers going in and out of the house that we've never met). I highly recommend these folks!
