"As a new dog owner, I was extremely nervous about leaving my hound at home for hours while at work. After noticing on Facebook that a neighbor of mine uses Parker and Friend's Pet Sitting, I figured I'd give them a try. I was not disappointed. Nadia and Felix's love for animals, their dedication, knowledge and expertise calmed my wobbly nerves. They are forever patient, always thoughtful about my pet's needs, flexible with my schedule and truly loving and gentle.
However, they are not just pet sitters. They assist you in the care of your pet. For instance, Nadia has helped me work on my dog's separation anxiety issues. She gave me great advice, showed much compassion for my worry, and went out of her way to suggest and purchase (which I reimbursed, of course) some tools to help my little guy quiet down. She also detected and immediately notified me of a minor health issue she noticed while out on a walk, and suggested a vet who would help with the problem.
Nadia and Felix and truly wonderful, professional and affordable. I highly recommend them - and so does Baxter the Basset Hound - whom I can tell is all the happier for seeing them every day!" - Debi R., Baxter's Mom
"Whenever we go out of town we drop our dog Mayor Cutie off with Nadia. Mayor Cutie LOVES staying with Nadia. She is best friends with Nadia’s chihuahas Parker and Cheech and gets really excited when we drop her off and whenever we pick her up she is happy and energized. We couldn’t give a higher recommendation for a pet service." - Duncan T., Mayor Cutie's Dad
"Nadia and her fantastic staff are always available for my last minute needs - no matter how annoying or inconvenient!!! They are great with my little Mingus and excellent communicators regarding scheduling and key-dropoff times and whathaveyou. Also fond of the cute notes they leave for me after Mingus' walks. Couldn't recommend a better dogwalker if I tried!!" - Shelby K., Mingus' Mom
"Nadia is great! She has cared for our cat Percy when we have been out of town a handful of times now. He always has plenty of food in his bowl and his litter box is cleaned when we return home.I especially like that she sends me photo updates from her phone with cute picture of Percy. It makes me feel like he is well taken care of and happy." - Jennifer S., Percy's Mom
"Nadia and Felix are incredibly friendly, trustworthy, professional and reliable. I've got two dogs who I love to death, but one is generally dog agressive and the other use to have destructive tendancies (he's since been crate trained, thank goodness). Nadia and Felix are great with my pups and know how to handle their "special needs".
Parker and Friends have watched my pups while I was out of town and on a number of occassions walked my pups when I had to stay late at work or had dinner plans after work, etc. Nadia has been a godsend by being available last minute, and it is always so nice coming home to happy, healthy, calm pups! Thanks Nadia and Felix!!!" - Salina L., Dessa and Jenkins' Mom
"Nadia Bacon is a dog's best friend. My dog Janet is so bummed out whenever we drop her off at day care. But when we bring her to Nadia she gets inanely excited. Janet loves Nadia, and not just because her last name is Bacon." - Brett G., Janet's Dad
"Parker and Friends Pet Sitting is great! I can't say enough good things about Nadia, the owner. She makes going out of town easy on me, and even easier on my cat. He doesn't even seem to have missed me when I get home, because he has had so much fun with Nadia!The rates are the most reasonable I have found, especially for the wonderful level of care, and it is great to be able to go out of town and not worry about my boy. I trust them implicitly, and can't say enough good things. I recommend Parker and Friends Pet Sitting to all my friends, and to everyone here too." - Tina B., Bob's Mom
"Nadia and her staff are the best! It's great to not have to worry about my pets when I leave town. I've used Nadia's services for a while now, and she's even trained in CPR for animals (which she'll hopefully never need to use on my guys). I've heard horror stories about dog walkers who take money from customers when they're not even showing up to do the walks. Nadia and her staff will always leave me a note so I know they were actually here, or they'll call me from my house. This is a great value!" - Brad P., Baron and Sam's Dad
"We hired Nadia to take care of our cat Batman for 5 days. Batman is very old, has one tooth, and suffers from chronic kidney problems...and she's a cat. With that said, she is beyond the typical high maintenance. We asked Nadia to drop by twice a day (10 minutes in the a.m., and 30 min in the p.m.), administer some meds, and just chill with Batman. Key exchange was easy and she even sent iphone snapshots of Batman to us everyday! She ended up staying at our place for 3 hours at a time some nights while she did some writing. Alright by us! Very comforting. We will definately go to Parker and Friends for all our cat sitting needs in the future!" - Grace L., Batman and Ellie's Mom
