Reliable trustworthy overnight petsitter needed


Can anyone recommend a petsitter who is honest, reliable, and responsible to stay overnight with our 3 year old Havanese? We live in Los Altos. Please include contact info if you have a recommendation. Thanks so much!

What about contacting your pastor, or someone in your church (if you belong to a church.) Often there are older widowed ladies who'll stay at your home with your dog and love it, plus make a little $$ on the side for themselves. Just a thought!

We have a franchise of Fetch Petcare near us. They employ vet techs. I have used them many times. They might have a franchise near you.

I did get a great petsitter from sittercity. She is teacher and wonderful. I did "interview" quite a few people, and came up with 2 that I really like.

You can also check with While most of the people do pet sitting in their own homes, some of the people do offer other services such as overnight pet sitting at the client's home. you can request a meet-and-greet with the provider before deciding.

We also used Fetch Pet Care in the past. They have a large number of sitters who stay overnight at the client's home.
