Here is what a few of our pet sitting clients said about us on reviews:
Exceeded our Expectations
These guys are great! They watched our Eskimo dog and tortoise while we were out of town and I was beyond impressed. If you have
not tried them yet, definitely give them a call. Their service exceeded our expectations and they truly have a love for animals in their
care. I highly recommend that you give them a try.
Thank you 1st Rate! We will definitely be calling you again soon.

Long Time Sitter
I have had their services for about a year and I am very satisfied with Don and Julie.
Don comes for the visits on time and does above and beyond what he has to do. I have a dog that is about 15 years old and 4 cats.
They all do very well in his care when I am gone. I have been away for as long as ten days. The house and my "kids" were fine, like if I
had not been away, when I return.
I would recommend 1st rate pet services for all the services they offer.

We love the service, professionalism and care that we get from Julie and Don! We know our "pet babies" are well cared for while we
are gone and we can always count on a that update email they send to us. We have peace of mind and can enjoy our vacations knowing
Don and Julie are taking care of our pets needs! We are so happy to have found them!

Walking high energy Doberman's
1st Rate Pet Services live up to their name-They are 1st Rate! Don and Julie have been taking care of our 2 year old male Dobe and 1
year old female Dobe since we moved to Ocala and we couldn't have found better caretakers for our precious babies. They are high
energy dogs who require 2 walks every day we work, and we are confident that our pups are taken care of as if it was us caring for
them. They have been extremely flexible with our ever changing schedule and have fulfilled every need we have for our dog walkers. We
LOVE them and more importantly, our dogs LOVE them too! Thanks Don and Julie for taking great care of our Dobes! We're very glad
we found 1st Rate Pet Services!
It's with a heavy heart that I also let you know that July 31st will be their last walk with you. We will be moving into our new house in
Land O' Lakes the first weekend in August. By far, you have been our best dog walker ever! You never once turned down even 1 of our
requests, even when they were last minute. We wish we could take you with us! I will continue to help with any referrals for you. It's been
fascinating watching your business grow and evolve. You definitely have a successful business on your hands! We wish you continued
luck and success with it!

Royalty in The Villages
Don and Julie treat my dogs like they are royalty. I am very picky and want them to be loved and played with when they visit us. My two
Mini Schnauzers look forward to seeing Don on a regular basis and my male sits in the window waiting for him. Then as Don parks the
car the crescendo of howls and barks become cries of joy. I will be a customer for the life of my babies.

Just stopping by to say that this is the BEST, most considerate, friendly and trustworthy Pet Sitter you will find. They took care of my 26
cats in October and I admit....I was worried. The first call from Julie and all worries were erased. She called while at my home and even
sent me pics of the kitts. I could even hear them meowing! Total satisfaction!! AND the porch where 21 of them live looked like it does
after I get through scrubbing it. Perfection! Above and beyond should be their motto! Thank you, thank you, and thank you again for
being there for us.
Oh, the cats say "Meow" ;)

Excellent with the animals!
We have 7 animals (5 dogs, a parrot, and a cat.) to care for and we are so very pleased with the care that Julie gives them. They all
love her and get excited when she comes. She gives them all the love that we give them and they are not even upset when we leave.
She also does an excellent job of taking care of our house when we are away. We have had her for week long overnights and we are so
thankful that we found her. She is very trustworthy, dependable, and honest. She keeps a daily diary so that we know what is going on.
She also takes pictures of them, which we enjoy. We could not be happier.”
