There is no one better than Irene! it was very important to us to find a dog walker that would show our dogs as much love as we show them. I think our dogs are more excited when Irene comes to the door than when we come home. She is very organized, responsible, and trusting. I recommend her whole heartedly!

We had the opportunity to use Irene's services this past summer caring for our two cats. This was our first time using Coastal Pet Sitting and we made the right decision. Irene was the utmost professional, organized and kept detailed daily records of her pet sitting activities.

A true professional and a subject matter expert on caring for pets.

My husband and I have used Coastal Pet Sitting Service since its inception. We found out about this service because the owner worked for our dog's Veterinarian. Our Vet's recommendation gave us the confidence that if anything happened during our absence, CPSS would know how and where to get immediate help.
Irene is the only person we use, if a friend or family member isn't available to let our dogs out etc. She gives us peace of mind because not only is she knowledgeable about animals , but she uses good judgement and common sense. She is very reliable, honest and respectful of our property. She gives our
dogs the same love and attention that
they would get from us. She has stayed in our home overnight for week-long periods many times without any negative
incident. CPSS is comparable in price to
most kennels, however while we are away our house is also being carefully watched. There are some good kennels in our area, but I worry about viruses and other diseases carried by dogs especially. Our dogs do not need precautionary inoculations...kennel cough etc. because they are safely at home. I highly recommend this service.

Irene is the best pet sitter I have ever had. She sent me texts and pictures to give us peace of mind that our cat, Marigold, was happy and taken care of. I already have her booked for our next vacation! Very happy to have found Irene.

Irene has taken care of our Bernese Mountain Dog, Molly, multiple times now. Molly just loves her! My husband & I are so pleased to find someone reliable, affordable, and so pleasant. It makes us feel Molly is in good hands. We would definitely recommend her services.

Irene is a wonderful pet sitter for our cat. We have used her many times when we have gone out of town. She even provides notes on our cat's activity, eating and anything usual or unusual. Irene spends quite a bit of time just sitting with him, and keeping him company on her visits, which is so important to us. Moreover, she has adeptly handled messy situations too, like the time she had to clean up a dead animal that Salem chose to "honor" her with. She has a kind and peaceful manner about her, that I'm sure is soothing to Salem. I give her a key to my house and feel that she is completely trustworthy. She is also very easy to work with and has terrific follow up. Very professional, but also kind and compassionate. I have recommended her to several friends. She's amazing.

Irene was incredible! I no longer have to worry about a responsible, caring pet sitter for my 4 cats, rabbit and chinchilla. She spent time with me and my pets being very thorough about their feeding, cleaning and habits. It was very important to her for my pets to get used to her. Irene left a daily report for me when I returned from vacation! I have recommended Irene to friends without hesitation. Her background as a volunteer for animals shelters and employment for a veterinarian illustrates her love for all animals!

Irene is a true gem. She took care of our puppy Brody as if it were here own puppy and Brody just loves her. We have also asked Irene to visit Brody while we are at work and to see the enthusiasm that she brings to each visit is remarkable. We consider Irene part of our family and feel that Brody is in good hands and our comfort level is 100% with Irene as the pet sitter. We cannot say enough about the good work that Irene does and she will continue to part of our extended family

Irene does a terrific job caring for my two highly active dogs. They love to see her and she gives them lots of attention and great care. One of my dogs required medical attention and she was quick to react and get the a diagnose and the medication. I am completely comfortable leaving my dogs and my home in Irene's care. She even leaves the house clean upon our return. I would highly recommend her to take care of any of your animals. Thank you Irene.

Irene has done an excellent job for us, caring for two large dogs and a cat. She was prompt, attentive and very communicative about her stay with us. She is very knowledgeable about the pets as she has experience working at a veterinarian's office as well as volunteering at local shelters. I would feel very comfortable recommending her.
