I have a 2 year old lab. He is what I like to call, "an enthusiastic greeter". He also has a bit a separation anxiety. I have been thrilled to have stumbled upon Julie and her employees who have allowed me to travel and not worry about leaving my enthusiastic greeter at home. They have been professional, loving, and I love updates I receive (with photos!!) every time they interact with my pup. Thank you so very much!!!
Thanks Jennifer! We love Milo! He's a great dog!
Julie and Audrey took care of our dogs for one week. This was our first time using Pet Sitter of Boise and we were extremely happy with everything. Although we weren't able to see them immediately as our phones didn't work much of the time we were away, the updates and pictures gave us the peace of mind to know our babies were okay and being well taken care of. Plus, our dogs were much happier being at home than at the kennel. We will absolutely use Pet Sitter of Boise again next time we go out of town!Laura & Eric, Boise, ID
Julie and Tory shared the sitting duties for our pets, corgi Summer and cat Indie. This is the first time we have used their services and we were so happy! We got texts and nice pictures every day we were away, and they checked to see that we got home ok. Tory even washed the sheets and re-made the bed! Wow!
Our dog was being babysat in Boise and we were California. Our return date to the Boise area was abruptly changed by 2 days and the people watching our dog could not keep her the extra days. We knew no one else in the Boise area as we do not live there. We had no proof of vaccination on hand and could not find a boarding kennel to help us. All the vet offices were closed. We called 6 kennels, 3 vets, the spca humane society and begged for help but received none. Lucklily we found Julie, The Pet Sitter of Boise who found us a place for our dog to stay and they picked her up and transported her to the new place. The care, compassion and understanding by The Pet Sitter of Boise is remarkable! We cannot thank Julie enough for rescuing our beloved pet when we were in such a dire situation.

We would like to Thank Julie and her team for the awesome care and love they show for our cats. We recently had a very loved cat "Drive-in" pass away while we were on vacation. When Julie emailed us the news we were devastated at his passing but very grateful for the 15 years of love he gave us. We were so thankful that Julie had already taken care of finalities by the time we arrived home. We would highly recommend pet sitter of Boise and will continue to use their services for their professionalism and kindness.
We called you guys in a pinch when both our cat boarding places were full! You came with tons of paperwork proving your ligitimacy, set up an appointment to meet on our schedule, and immediately impressed us with your credentials. Getting daily pictures of our cat was soothing and reassuring, and we saw her being spoiled rotten! We enjoyed knowing she was in very good hands and appreciate your kindness and pride in your work very much!
Hi Julie we are home. Marcy was just fabulous and I love the text updates! We have a short trip in Oct so I will register online. So Happy...many thanks!!!Carol & Joe
We are relocating to Spokane and it's been a slow process but the pugs moved last week. So sadly we won't be using your wonderful dog services anymore. I'm searching for some alternative up here, but I have a feeling nothing will compare to the care that our pugs got from you and your sitters. Thank you very much for the years of great care, if the kids could talk I'm sure they will miss the hands that fed them when daddies were gone!
Thanks for providing this service! We really have peace of mind when we leave town for an extended time as we know Jazz is having fun with your great sitters!
"Thanks Julie for the awesome job you do for the other members of our family. We no longer worry about picking up stressed out pets from having them boarded. They might give us a few dirty looks for not getting to come along... but they are much more at ease when we return."
“We have used The Pet Sitter of Boise, LLC many times for our Bassets, George and Duchess. Our dogs are so happy and Duchess doesn’t lose her voice from barking in the kennels all day. George likes the extra attention. Julie is always accommodating and she is always flexible with our last minute plans. We always come home to happy and healthy dogs. We never worry when they are cared for by The Pet Sitter.” – The Harness Family – Boise, ID

“I really can’t explain how happy your care has made me, and how easy you’ve made my time on the road. Many things in life don’t much matter to me, but, animals mean everything, and it’s been just wonderful to know how happy they are. My job here is SO much easier when I am not thinking about home, or wondering if they are really happy, or whether Bibi’s medicine is working out alright. Just hearing how you care for them has given me a wonderful summer so far! Thank you so much.” –Mary L. – Kuna, ID

“Thank you so much for taking such good care of our girls! It was so nice to be on vacation and not worry so much about how they were doing. The twice daily emails were something we looked forward to reading each day! It really was comforting to know that they were being loved and cared for by someone who really cared about their well-being. I could tell when we got home that they were both calm and happy. I think they were both looking for you yesterday evening wondering where their new friend was!
You really did a wonderful job not only with taking care of the girls but also with all the extra things like the mail, blinds, etc. We will definitely be contacting you again in the future when we have out of town plans. Thank you again for taking such good care of everything.” -K.S. Meridian, ID

“Thank you so much for taking great care of our kitties. We got home yesterday about noon and they were very happy to see us. They followed us around the house for the rest of the evening which was very cute. You did an incredible job both caring for the cats and taking care of the minor messes that ensued. We’ll be using this service every time we leave town now- you ladies rock!!! Julie- We’ve had great experiences with the staff that have come to our house- kudos to you and your team!”– Jason & Stephanie S. – Boise
“My two kitties and I lived at a local hotel while on a 5-month work assignment in Boise. I had concerns about leaving the cats alone in a strange place with new pet sitters when I had to travel. Once I met Julie and Susan, I was totally at ease. Julie was professional and thorough at our first meeting, and Susan was observant about where everything was stored, asking detailed questions about the kitties’ routine. While away, I received twice daily text messages — often with photos attached — letting me know how Mason and Missy were doing. It was clear from their notes that Julie and Susan were spending lots of time with the kitties, playing and just hanging out with them on the sofa. I never had to wonder what was going on and how they were doing, which made being away from them a lot les stressful. I highly recommend Julie and her team — they have spoiled me!” -Teresa V. – Boise
“I just want to say thank you again. Scott took fantastic care of Noodle and Cami while I was gone. Noodle had her check up yesterday and Dr. Murphy was happy with her progress and how her wound is healing. Noodle will be starting physical therapy on Friday to get her strength back in her leg. I would not have been able to go on my business trip if Scott wouldn’t have been willing to live at our house for so long each day so thank you, thank you thank you! Thanks again. We give your business rave reviews to our friends and co-workers!” –Danielle P. – Boise
“I’m sure you hear it all the time, but words really cannot describe the peace of mind that comes with knowing your animals and house are being cared for by a professional. Even when I’ve had a friend or family member take care of them, there’s always concern that they may forget or be too busy. Thanks again.” -Amir R. – Boise
“We really love the service you give us and the attention to detail. You are the best we have had!”- Wendy G. – Boise

“Julie, thank you so much for taking care of our babies while we were gone! We cannot recommend The Pet Sitter of Boise, LLC – Pet Sitting and Dog Walking in Boise, ID enough. Typically, our three cats have a hard time while we are gone, but with Julie taking care of them we arrived home to three very well cared for cats. They were happy and healthy and didn’t complain like they normally do after a trip. ALL of our cat boxes were clean (that’s four!), the fish were fed, and there wasn’t any indication of kitty accidents (which normally happens when we’re away). Julie took care of our cats as if they were her own and it shines through. THANK YOU from Ashy, Bandit, Stella, Gene, and Steph.”
“I struggle to find words to describe how wonderful it was to watch Mazie sitting with Scott after my return today. She obviously felt comfortable, safe, loved and well cared for. Gus the cat feels the same. What more could a pet owner ask for their furry family members? We are so grateful for the services you offer and in particular for Scott. He has become not only a “member of the pack” for Mazie and Gus but we consider him a member of our extended family as well. Thanks for making such a difference! We never worried about “the kids” once while we were gone.” -Dr. Deb D. -Boise, ID
