We heartily recommend Sweet Pea Pet Sitting. We left Gwen and Monty, our Airedales at home with Krista while we attended a business meeting in Lake Tahoe this past summer. Our Dales are older and one is blind with terminal cancer and not able to travel Krista did a great job and we came home to happy and well cared for dogs.
We really appreciate the professionalism and thoroughness of SPPS. The paperwork we completed about the dogs and the time Krista spent with them prior to our departure made it possible for her to settle into their routines beautifully. The dogs befriended her immediately. And she was even able to sing Monty out of his "I miss Dad" mood. To welcome us home, we received a detailed daily log of activities and a framed photo for each dog. And, Krista was the perfect houseguest: she washed the sheets, swept the kitchen floor and greeted us with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Thank you, Krista!

It gives us a wonderful piece of mind when we are away that our home and pets are well taken care of. We always use Sweat Pea Pet Sitting and know that or dogs are in reliable, competent, and trustworthy hands.

We found a goldmine with SweetPea Pet Sitting!
When we had Krista take care of our kittens for the first time, she sent us pictures of them via text to show how well taken care of they were while we were gone. We returned home to find a daily journal listing everything she did while visiting our home. We could tell she spent a great deal of time at the house since she was able to write about the differences in each kitten's personality. Since then, Krista has taken care of our kittens on numerous occasions.

Krista at SweetPea is a great find. She is highly attentive, and extremely knowledgeable. Thanks for the pet care tips.

"SweetPea PetSitting is the perfect name for a "sweet pea" like Krista! With her kind and gentle ways, she quickly befriends even the most temperamental cat like my Ernesto and has him eating (treats) out of her hand. She even leaves cat toys, a detailed note of daily activities, and flowers. Who does that?? I most highly recommend Krista and SweetPea PetSitting for your dog or cat-sitting needs!"

"We are so lucky to have found Krista!
We have been trusting her with our kitty for the past 2 years. Krista has always been very responsive and very accommodating when we've had to leave town on short notice and for extended periods of time.
She is extremely mindful of our detailed care instructions and goes above and beyond when caring for our kitty, oftentimes bringing in supplies that she thinks might help keep her healthier and happier.
We have been completely at ease while away from home, knowing that our little one is in good hands, and appreciate reading the reports she leaves detailing their time together.
Krista is a keeper!"

“We're so happy we found Krista. We left our three cats in her care for multiple trips. Krista genuinely cares about the animals, and we were quite happy to see their pictures and read about their activities while we were gone.
The real test was coming back from an extended trip to find the kitties just happy to see us- instead of mad that we'd been gone for so long.
That really showed us that they got the attention they needed while we were away!”

“We moved to Emeryville recently with our two kittens from SF.
Our previous pet sitter was unable to make it to the East bay so we were looking for the "one". Luckily we happened to come by Krista's business card in a nearby coffee shop.
After meeting Krista and seeing our cats welcome her into our home we knew she was the one.
This past holiday season Krista watched our loved ones for over a week and provided great detail and pictures to keep us up to date on Buddy and Dulce. When we got home, we were so pleased to see that our cats were very relaxed and happy!
This is without a doubt due to the great job that Krista did while we were gone.”

I used to board my cat and my little cat was always upset and did not really eat the amount of food she needed daily. Due to my family obligation, I needed to fly to Asia and stayed there for 12 days last X'mas.
My cat is my only concern.
I did not want to see her fur gone dry and wanted her to have her normal eating schedule, plus fresh water daily.
With my neighbors' recommendations, I contacted Krista. Before my trip, Krista came to my house to learn my cat's needs. During my trip, Krista emailed me the update about my cat with pictures. I learned that my cat ate well and also enjoyed being with her new friend, Krista. So I was able to have a peace of mind.
I am so thankful for her help and professionalism.
