Little Paws was absolutely fabulous for the three years we lived in Colorado Springs. Both Ulrike and Lessie took tremendous care of our two newfies, who adored them. Lessie earned our respect particularly after one of our beasts had a crippling spinal embolism; she went well beyond the call of duty. These people love dogs, and our dogs certainly loved them.

Winky and Chewy has been taken care by the best cat sitters in town, little paws pet sitting, for over 6 years. I wouldn’t think of leaving my darling pets with anyone else! Little paws is responsible, loving and priced reasonably. They go beyond expectations for those of us that ocassionally forget to buy kitty food before going on a long trip :-). I know my kitties are safe and in great hands when I’m out of town. They are always worried about pet safety and their well being while their humans are gone. They also do a great job with plants, mail and cleaning after pets! I love Ulrike and her staff…Winky and Chewy love Linda! Thank you for all you do for us and our pets!

I’ve been thinking lately what a blessing this job has been for me.  I have met some wonderful people & their pets, stayed in some beautiful homes, discovered parts of town I never knew existed, and met you & your family & the other sitters.  Plus, I get paid for all this!  So, thank you for developing Little Paws & hiring me!

Check with vets, groomers, pet stores, and other area pet businesses to learn more about the reputation of your chosen pet sitting business.
