I have nothing but compliments to give to Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting. From start to finish everything just went flawlessly. I was very anxious about leaving our recently adopted rescue dog while we went on vacation. Suzanne, the owner is extremely organized and they really get to know your personal schedule with your pet so they can keep the same routine while you are gone. I had Michelle and she was just fantastic. I also loved that I got daily photos, videos and updates! I will definitely use Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting again and would recommend it to anyone who has a fur baby!!
I was given the info for Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting at my vet's office. I was there to get the second set of puppy shots for my, then 4 month old, scottie sisters. I was somewhat desperate as not too many wanted to sit for puppies and, most certainly not two. Suzanne returned my call that day and what a blessing! When we met at my home, I knew I had found the perfect person for my puppies and me. She was very thorough, professional, and especially loving to my little "wild" girls. We had a great experience with our first get away, so much so that I have booked two other dates with her service. I really appreciate being able to get away but yet feel as if you're with your furry friends thru the daily communication and photos. I would highly recommend this service... and so would Sadie and Sofie!
Suzanne and Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting are simply amazing! At a difficult time in my life when I was having to undergo weeks of medical treatment out of state, Suzanne and her team swooped in and cared for our two dogs and home in exactly the way we would allowing me to focus on my health and not spend a minute worrying about my beloved dogs. She took extensive notes at the pre-meeting and carefully read all of my written instructions , following them all to the letter. Even though the dogs were accustomed to getting up early (5:30am!), she kept them on their schedule, like clockwork. We have an older dog that needed daily medications and a shoe to protect an injured paw and a younger dog that needed extra attention and exercise – all of their needs were attended to with great care. Did the dogs get a walk? Yes – multiple walks per day with emailed confirmation that included a map of the distance and potty stops. Playtime? Yes – lots of ball throwing! Attention? A BIG Yes – she loves dogs and it shows. Pictures and Updates? Yes, multiple times a day!
Previous to meeting Suzanne, my expectations were not high for pet sitters and kennels. She has earned my trust and my future business and I enthusiastically recommend her. Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting will be our pet sitters for life! Valerie & Regan Shea
Suzanne is amazing and we highly recommend her services. We immediately felt comfort in knowing she would care for our home, but most importantly our beloved pet, just as we do. She is very professional and one of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. What we appreciate the most are the daily pictures and check in's, seeing how much fun they are having really takes away the stress which comes from when we leave our special friend behind. I'm confident our little girl actually looks forward to our next adventure because she has so much fun with Suzie. Happy to say our furry kid has a friend for life and a very happy client. Thank you for everything and see ya next month!

When someone is so good and loving at their job the words can be hard to come by because then it becomes a feeling. So writing this review is a privilege because I have been lucky enough to find Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting and Suzanne. On one trip the power went in the house and I was unavailable. The situation was handled perfectly, Bruin's comfort and safety was her top priority and she continued to contact me even if I wasn't responding to her. When I finally got to my phone I never felt worried or unsure of what was happening I knew she was incomplete control. My favorite thing about Suzanne and Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting is it feels more like family is in your home. The way she communicates her schedule and how it will impact your dog, the way the house is always clean when you come home, and she is always so friendly she truly is an angel. As soon as I book a trip I call her immediately because she truly is the best.

Short & Simple Title
Like many people, our dogs are our children. Our Tibetan Terrier, Morgie is what you would call a most special child who has endured more than any dog should have to. Morgie survived a tumor removal that went terribly wrong and necessitated that he be cared for by an ICU surgical team for over 3 months. During that time he came home almost daily requiring 24 hr post surgical care more intense than any pet sitter would ever want to consider. Every pet sitter except for Suzanne. I can not imagine going through that process without Suzanne who loved and cared for my terrified, angry, fully shaved dog who had tubes coming out of his body in so many places as if he was the most beautiful and precious dog in the world, which of course he is to me. Today he is happy and thriving, defying all odds, in large part due to her efforts helping him to heal. I have told Suzanne, to call what she does for animals and their people pet sitting is inadequate. She has a special gift and we are all lucky that if we can't be and do everything for our animals all the time, Suzanne and her team are there to step in.

As we prepare for our four day journey back to PA, we were reflecting on our season here. Nikka's injury got us off to a difficult and heartbreaking start. Her surgery and extensive rehab were not part of our plans! But as we look for God's hand in the circumstances we found ourselves in, we realized that there was a hidden blessing - YOU! We give thanks for the day we met you at Dr. Jarvis' office and we feel blessed to have had you caring for Nikka these past few months.
I hope you know how much you are appreciated and how important your work is. Our animals are family and it takes a special person to instill confidence that our "kids" will be well cared for in our absence. You are professional, reliable, caring and kind! I pray for the success of Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting because it certainly has made a difference in our lives!
We look forward to reconnecting with you in October upon our return :) Have a wonderful summer season!
Marty, Denise & Nikka
What a great service we received from Pawsitive Pet Sitting! We came into town for a wedding and planned to take Myza to a dog hotel but they wouldn't take him because he's being medicated for a cough so we decided to figure it out while we took Myza to the beach. While at the beach we got to talking with someone who recommended them. Even though it was last minute(2hours before the wedding) they managed to get us with Allie, she came to us and right off the bat we knew Myza was in good hands. We gave Allie free will to take Myza wherever she felt was right for him or just relax at our hotel! We received text updates with pictures of their good times! 5 out 5 star service! Thank you!
Five stars is not enough for Suzanne and the ladies she has working with her. They are the best. I found Suzanne because of a Petsitter I had hired canceled last minute. I was scrambling looking for a new sitter knowing it might be difficult as I have two dogs and two cats and it was around the Christmas holidays. Suzanne called me back right away and told me those dates worked for her. She came over and iimmediately all my animals fell in love with her. While she was at my home I received the most beautiful professional photographs every day. I can tell you it was one of the first vacations I ever took that I didn't worry about the animals at home. We have now moved out of state and I still keep in contact with her. She is simply the best! If we go out of town we will pay for her plane ticket for her to come here to watch the animals!
I have known Suzanne for several years, as she worked at my Vet. She has very stringent rules for herself and her associates that insure the best care and protection for all the four legged members of your family.
Suzanne and members of her group have spent overnights at my home. I not only get frequent updates but I get wonderful photos.
I cannot stress enough how completely relaxed I am when I go away and have Pawsitive Vacation taking care of my 3 girls.
Suzanne, the owner of pawsitive pet sitting deserves 5 stars!
we had a 10 day east coast vaca planned.. i had interviewed & hired a very nice lady i found on care.com & thought all my bases were covered.. UNTIL she bailed on me w/ 3 days notice!! we are new to arizona and knew NO ONE who might help out on such short notice..
i found suzanne on yelp & contacted her about 9pm in a panic!! she responded immediately & we made an appt to meet the next day..
she showed up with the actual pet sitter who was going to stay and another helper.. they spent about an hr during that appt, meeting the dogs, taking notes, etc.. i felt extremely comfortable with her.. her energy is calm & loving but professional..
i panicked again the night before we left, worrying about everything since i didnt REALLY know her.. she texted me for an extended period of time, putting my fears to rest.. communication is one of her strong points..
needless to say, all went well while we were gone.. she even came over & w/ the sitter who was staying gave my lab a bath! (which is no small feat!)
i only have good things to say about suzanne.. shes trustworthy and reliable and very serious about the safety and care of my animals which are the ONLY things that truely matter to me... she truely deserves my 5 star rating!
I highly recommend Suzanne and Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting. ! It is such a nice feeling going away on vacation and not having to stress about my dogs. Worrying if the dog sitter is there, wondering how much time they are spending with them, if they really are staying overnight. I have had many issues over the years and I finally found someone that is more over protective of my 3 dogs than I am!!! I love that their policy is not to leave the dogs more than 4 hours at a time! That's such a great feeling. They send pictures daily and they truly care about your dogs as if they were their own. I love how they make sure they are at your home within an hour or so after you leave and they make sure they stay until about an hour or so before your coming home. I can not thank them enough. My boyfriend is so happy we can travel comfortably now because all the past the dogsitters would stress me out , with Suzanne and Pawsitive Vacation Pet Sitting my vacations are stress free!
Thank you again Suzanne and I'll see you in September.
Absolutely the best! Being huge dog lovers, my husband and I have gone through a few sitters over the years and never have been over the top pleased...until we met Suzanne. Not only does she have a love of animals she goes above beyond. She takes care of not only our pets but makes sure everything in our home is taken care of as well.
She makes it a point to have constant play time and when the weather permits she takes them out for walks. We think our pups are a bit upset when we get home as they love their time with Suzanne!
She is the best and I never have to think twice about leaving home for a trip. I know all is handled and possibly better then I do it!
I recently went out of town for about a week and needed someone to take care of my cats while I was away. Suzanne was recommended to me by a friend, and she did a wonderful job. She let me know every day how the cats were doing, and sent me amazing pictures. I had no idea cats could be so photogenic! I would recommend these folks to anyone who needs pet sitting. It was a pleasure doing business. Thanks again!
Pawsitively perfect pet sitters! We are VERY careful about who we leave our 4 legged children with.
Don't need to worry or think twice with Suzanne. The dogs love her and so so we!
The bonus photos are priceless.
