Petra is wonderful! She has been taking our pup Quincy for walks and group outings to nearby dog parks for the past 8 months. She is a true animal lover, and it shows in the time and care she devotes to Quincy. We know he is always in good hands and having fun when he's with Petra. We'd give 10 stars if we could!

Petra is the best. She has been walking and dog sitting our our golden retriever for nearly a year and we couldn't be happier. She is terrific: great rates, good service (our pup gets taken to Carkeek park for 1+ hours most days to run and swim), and a super kind and trustworthy person. We very strongly recommend her!

Petra is fantastic and provided exactly what I needed! I contacted Flying Dog Pet Care a couple days before leaving town for a New Year's getaway, and she was very accommodating. I have two chihuahuas that have special needs and I have never left them in the care of a stranger. Being new to Seattle, I had no choice but to find a professional pet sitter. I am so glad I found this company. Petra helped me set up a regimen of in home care that worked for us. She came to my home to meet the dogs before I left, and I could tell she was knowledgable, cautious, and was able to interact with my dogs in a way that helped them to feel comfortable. They responded to her really well! That was a minor miracle because my dogs, unfortunately, are not good with new people. While I was away, she fed them, cared for them, administered medication for one of them, and kept me updated through texts. She was extremely communicative and very caring toward my dogs and their nervous personalities. I was extremely anxious about leaving them with someone new, but could not have had a better experience using a professional pet-sitting service for the first time, thanks especially to Petra's animal-loving care. If I ever have to leave Seattle without my dogs again, I will call Flying Dog Pet Care first.

The best sitter you'll ever find! Petra has watched my pup on several occasions and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She is extremely professional and an excellent care provider. So glad I found her and look forward to the next opportunity to call on her.

Petra recently watched our cat, Henry, while we were away for about two weeks over the holidays. She came to our home once per day to feed him, clean his litter box, and give him some playtime and cuddles. She also kept our Christmas tree alive! It was obvious when we returned that Henry had been well-cared for. He wasn't angry with us for being gone, and was perfectly content and happy. His litter and food area were clean, as was the rest of the house. Petra updated us with text messages while we were away and coordinated the details of the key return that had slipped my mind before I left. Thanks so much Petra for your excellent care! We will be in contact again!!

We can't thank Petra enough! We always hate leaving our dog, Honey, as we know all pet parents do. Honey is especially tricky because she's pretty fearful of many things, including new people. We knew right off the bat that Petra would be an excellent fit for Honey, and indeed we came home to the happiest pup! Petra stayed at our home for a week with Honey, and she took excellent care of her and our home. We feel so lucky to have met Petra and look forward to using her services many times in the future. Thank you!

Having just moved to Seattle we suddenly found ourselves in need of a new overnight pet sitter. On very short notice, Petra responded to our request and did not disappoint. We are typically very anxious and protective about our animals (two Rhodesian Ridgebacks and two cats) but Petra very quickly alleviated those worries. She was very kind, calm, professional, and truly familiar with animal behavior. Her communication style was so comforting and often included pictures! We definitely will be using her services again and we highly recommend her!

Petra has been an essential part of my 5 month-old puppy Freddy's life! My husband and I both work, but we have always wanted a dog. Petra has been indispensable in helping us realize our dream and helping us be responsible dog owners. She has been doing daily drop-by visits with Freddy our mini dachshund for the last month for potty breaks. Not only has she helped us with potty training but she has already started training Freddy in basic obedience training, like sit, stay, and fetch. Petra's training experience is definitely an asset that puts her ahead of the pack! I look forward to the daily updates and videos she sends us via text message, so I still feel connected to Freddy's antics and cute moments throughout the day. Freddy spent a weekend with Petra while we were traveling, and she took him on walks at the park and on the beach. She has an easy-going personality that Freddy responds to, she has flexible hours, she is dependable and responsible. I trust her with our home and dog. Petra has become a member of our little family and I know that Freddy adores her!
