Lisa D.

Lisa watches my cat while I am out of town and does an amazing job. She is flexible, punctual, and gives me updates which I love. Depending on how long my travel takes, Lisa is open to stopping by my place or taking my cat into her home. Highly recommend.

I hired Priyam to watch my puppy while I was on a trip. Priyam kept in touch with me during my trip, she took him on his 4 walks a day, fed him two times, and sent me pictures of their play time. I could also watch them on the cams. My pup is a little angel and Priyam was a great guardian!
