Our Client Reviews: Uncensored

Out of these 155 clients, 154 would hire us again. See what else they review about our pet sitting and dog walking services.

We couldn't be happier with Alexandria Pet Care.  The comments each time they visit, often with pictures of our happy dogs, really put our minds at ease.  Our dogs were relaxed and healthy when we arrived home.  Nice people, great communication.

We have been using Alexandria Pet Care for the past year and they have been great. Andy took care of our cat this past week and he did a great job. The front office is very responsive and their website is very easy to use with scheduling visits and paying invoices.

ED 22314 Wednesday October 14, 2020

Fantastic pet sitters, quick to respond, great with pets. Having to leave my cats is always stressful but knowing that someone is going to come and play with them (and send me photos!) helps. I’ve been through a slew of foster cats as well and they’ve always been great with the ever-changing roster at my apartment.

JR 22305 Tuesday September 15, 2020

Everyone is absolutely wonderful. I felt like they treated my house as if it was their own. My cat knocked a planter over, breaking it, and Andy found a spare planter outside and repotted the poor cactus. He went above and beyond, and I doubt I’ll use anyone else for pet sitting ever again!

JA 22301 Thursday August 27, 2020

Such a wonderful company! Our pet was happy (which I knew because of the daily updates and photos) and our caretaker even kept and eye on the house, gathered mail, and really helped me relax and enjoy my time away. Thank you!

LJ 22302 Thursday August 13, 2020

I'm delighted! I’m truly grateful for the daily updates and photos of Auden. She was in a great mood when I returned.

DS 22314 Tuesday August 11, 2020

We're so happy that you guys have been able to hang on through this 2020 craziness; you're the best pet sitters I've ever had!

CB 22314 Wednesday July 8, 2020

Everything was perfect! Alfie was well taken care of and a happy bunny when we returned home.

SS 22302 Monday December 30, 2019

We're so grateful for all of your help over the years taking care of Boris and Stevens during our travels. From day 1, we were so impressed with APC's team and the level of service and care you provided for our cat friends!

KJ 22314 Tuesday December 3, 2019

We are very grateful for the amazing care you give our Sophia and Lola!

DT 22311 Friday November 1, 2019

Thank you so much for the amazing care you gave my fur babies, it is MUCH appreciated!

MG 22301 Wednesday June 12, 2019

You all are amazing and I appreciate how much I can count on you!

MM 22314 Friday June 7, 2019

We were delighted with your service for our dog Cody last week when we had to go to a funeral.  All went very smoothly because of your attention to detail and it gave us peace of mind.  We are grateful for your very professional services.

DF 22309 Friday May 31, 2019

Alexandria Pet Care does a terrific job caring for our pets.  I have used other services in the past, but APC is much more professional and reliable.  The friendly and caring team delivers every time.

TB 22308 Wednesday May 22, 2019

I cannot say enough good things about Alexandria Pet Care! They are a team of professionals that have made my life, and my 3 dogs lives, so much better. Their highly trained, top-level professionals have not only given my dogs expert care but have shown empathy and uncommon grace to our entire family. I don't use the word often, but these people (backed by the fantastic office staff and Elizabeth, APC's owner) have been nothing short of a blessing to us all. I heartily and sincerely recommend their services!

MR 22314 Thursday May 2, 2019

I have used Alexandria Pet Care for midday dog walking for over 5 years - initially with a very senior dog and more recently, for my young high energy terrier. Alex Pet Care has been just great - professional & responsible; always there as scheduled, will let me know if something is amiss and just wonderful in handling my pup. He’s happy to see Laura and she helps me by reinforcing his basic training. Alexandria Pet Care is the best in Alexandria.

ME 22301 Monday April 15, 2019

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Anna! When I got back she was still asleep on the couch. She is much less anxious after your visits when we get back home.

JC 22305 Friday April 12, 2019

This is the first time I've used a pet service, and you all are great! Thank you!

LP 22304 Friday April 5, 2019

Thanks much to Elle and Cole for their support during our travel. Appreciate you guys so much!

VD 22314 Monday April 1, 2019

Andy did a great job caring for the cats! Love your service.

SN 22304 Monday March 25, 2019

We have just returned and greeted Cody. Reading your terrific notes. Thank you for your attention and loving care!

DF 22308 Tuesday March 19, 2019

Our eternal thanks for your help with Sasha's dog training.  She's made some huge strides forward in the past couple of weeks.  I think a lot of it has to do with, as you suggested, confining her and teaching her to appreciate her crate.  We've now gotten her to stay in her crate for up to 4 hours without us home.  When we're home, she frequently just hangs out in the crate, chews on her toys, or just takes a nap.  I'd say she still needs to make a lot more progress with people entering the house, as well as some herding/nipping tendencies, but we also recognize this is an ongoing process and it'll just take time.

DH 22301 Tuesday March 5, 2019

I was very happy with the service you provided!!  Thank you for taking care of my most important little creature to me.

VD 22314 Friday March 1, 2019

You are the best! Bama sure loves his afternoon walks with you!

MK 22307 Thursday February 28, 2019

Thanks so much for the excellent care our kitties received! We've returned and everything is perfect. Such a wonderful service!!

DP 22304 Thursday January 3, 2019

Many thanks to Andy for the great care he gives Fred!

TM 22304 Tuesday January 1, 2019

Thank you again SO much for taking such great care of our pups. We really appreciate all of the TLC you show them, the pics of the dogs and all of the extras that you help out with (mail, packages..bringing in torn up presents from the yard..)

CL 22308 Friday December 28, 2018

Thanks again for taking care of my Sebastienne muffin! I am really grateful he had such loving care and really enjoyed reading his updates and seeing he was in good hands.

LC 22314 Monday December 3, 2018

I just want to thank you for being a great company and giving all pet owners peace of mind while away. I have never had to worry about my cat while away and I truly appreciate that.

TJ 22314 Saturday November 24, 2018

You guys have been an invaluable service for us. And your customer service is great. We couldn’t be happier.

EK 22306 Thursday November 8, 2018

I trust the people here. That's all I can say. My husband and I have been using them over the years and they have never let us down. We don't need a pet sitter that often, but when we do they are always spot on. Our last dog was elderly and sick and there were times when we needed special care for her, or even had to cancel at the last minute because she was too sick for us to travel.  I know I am a pain in the neck sometimes, but the one thing I know is that they are a trustworthy group and worth every penny.

GS 22314 Saturday October 6, 2018

We've been using Alexandria Pet Care for the last year and a half or so. They aren't the cheapest service available, but the place we used before that was awful so it's worth the price for us. We had two senior cats (now one senior and a young cat) so they were high-maintenance and we needed to ensure reliability.

SR 22314 Monday October 1, 2018

We couldn’t be more thrilled with how this experience went! The doggies were happy to see us but were obviously doing just fine. They were safe, happy, and at home and we could check in on their progress - we are so very grateful for your care of the babies!

SJ 22314 Monday September 24, 2018

Highly recommend Alexandria Pet Care! The staff are professional, kind, and have taken great care of our cat while we've been away on numerous occasions over the past 3 years. Scheduling is a breeze and we're always confident she and our apartment are in good hands. Thank you APC!

HK 22304 Sunday September 23, 2018

You are all wonderful! Thank you for all the care you give Georgia and Max each day. We are so lucky to have found Alexandria Pet Care!

ES 22304 Thursday September 6, 2018

Alexandria Pet Care! I would trust them with my life.

CS 22301 Monday August 6, 2018

We got back yesterday as planned from our a week trip. We loved the detailed notes, and can’t thank you enough for your service. Maxi clearly had a great time!

AC 22306 Monday June 18, 2018

We love APC. They have taken care of our cats on multiple occasions. We recommend them to all of our friends.

AD 22307 Wednesday January 17, 2018

We have been using Alexandria Pet Care for many years and have always been impressed with the quality of care and friendliness. We also love the interactive web site and the notes the dog walker leaves every day. We highly recommend them!!

SP 22304 Thursday December 14, 2017

I have nothing but positive things to say about this company, from the initial meeting to their visits with my cat. Once I schedule a visit, they always contact me beforehand to confirm the visit, and I NEVER worry about my cat when they are visiting. 5 stars, no question about it.

TJ 22314 Thursday December 14, 2017

Always reliable which is key for me so I don't worry about my cats when I am away. They also communicate visit status. On the website portal, I can check that the cat sitter stopped and and that the cats were okay, because each the cat sitter logs ecah visit. Also, when my regular cat sitters can't make it, they let me know in advance that they are sending someone else. My cat sitter has also been a vet tech which gives me some extra peace of mind.

Ruth 22314 Thursday December 14, 2017

The daily notes were wonderful to receive! It was clear that Laurie enjoyed visiting our cat.

DT 22302 Wednesday December 13, 2017

Alexandria Pet Care will come to your home when you are out of town. They check mail, water plants and leave a very detailed report. They've been great for us.

JS 22308 Monday November 6, 2017

You are the greatest pet sitters ever! You are completely reliable, and will do whatever is needed to keep things running smoothly in my absence. The business side is run as well as the animal-sitting side - which is rare. And, my pets love you!

A.S. 22304 Saturday August 26, 2017

Thank you so much! you guys are the best. I am such an anxious new puppy mom. I literally cannot stand leaving this little fur baby all alone!! So glad you all are there to help out.

AH 22306 Friday March 10, 2017

Laura and Alexandria Pet Care are terrific! They are SO good with Toby the terrier and his puppy escapades/antics!

ME 22301 Tuesday March 7, 2017

Alexandria Pet Care does a wonderful job. They have been caring for our pets for several years, and we are very satisfied customers.

They personalize their care to your pets needs, so no worries while you are on travel. Very professional and reliable.

TW 22308 Saturday February 18, 2017

Great job--cats were super happy when I returned!

KR 22304 Friday February 17, 2017

i LOVE the email that i receive stating that the sitter has completed the first visit, and the email that states completion of sit. i just find them to be comforting, professional, good reminder to call in that we are home, etc.

dc 22305 Friday February 17, 2017

I rate Alexandria Pet Care as a "Wow!!!!!." They are wonderful with our cat who can be a handful!!! Could not be happier. They are kind, reliable, and trustworthy!!!

JLW 22314 Thursday February 16, 2017

Thank you for your careful attention to Orlando's pet care.  Especially extend my gratitude to Laura for her cat expertise!

JR 22202 Thursday February 2, 2017

Thanks! I know that Jack is always happy to see Cindy.

EK 22307 Tuesday January 31, 2017

We met the team last night and it was wonderful!! We really appreciate your level of communication, professionalism, and friendliness in your emails! I reached out to a lot of dog walking companies, and it was a no brainer to meet you guys.

LE 22314 Thursday January 26, 2017

You all are so great. Thank you again!

KP 22307 Saturday January 14, 2017

I am excited to work with you folks. Elle and Kristi are quite nice and made me feel at ease. Thank you!

JW 22314 Thursday December 22, 2016

Just wanted to say how thrilled we were with the team we met! We're so relieved to find such a great group to look after our kitties while we're away.

DP 22304 Wednesday September 21, 2016

You all did a wonderful job looking after Maggie and Phooey - I'm thrilled with your service and your company.

AH 22307 Monday August 1, 2016

Thank you so much for taking care of our kitty Milly. We are beyond impressed with the detailed notes left for us! We will definitely be using y'all again next time!

BW 22314 Thursday April 7, 2016

Let me start by saying I've had some rough experiences with pet sitters in the recent past, but this was different. They don't have add-on costs for every little thing (even when my cat got sick at the last minute and suddenly needed a daily pill) and took the time during the consultation to make sure they fully understood everything about my pet, the house, the routine, etc... It was simple to contact them, simple to make changes, and simple to pay (hello PayPal). Without reservation, I would recommend them to anyone.

TRD 22306 Tuesday February 23, 2016

Thanks to your team for taking such great care of our dog Ranger while I'm out of town. It's so nice to not have to worry about him!

EK 22314 Thursday February 18, 2016

I've been using APC's services for nearly two years and couldn't be happier! Laura has taken the best care of my two cats, who are shy and finicky and periodically have medical issues. Laura is the only person besides me that they actually get excited to see! She is incredibly thorough, and I always have peace of mind whether I'm gone for a weekend or an extended trip. 100% worth the cost -- APC is the best of the best in pet sitting.

KW 22301 Friday February 5, 2016

Love this company. They are super reliable and so good with my cat and 3 dogs. They even fed our little gecko while we were on vacation.

mcb 22305 Friday January 8, 2016

We are so happy to have found you and your company!  You take such great care of Oscar and Felix.  Thank you!

RB 22303 Monday December 28, 2015

Have been using APC for several years now and they always do a wonderful job with my Persian cat. He is always relaxed and just fine when we get home, even when we have been out of town for 10 days. Very happy with services & highly recommend!

SMB 22304 Sunday December 20, 2015

We started using Alexandria Pet Care in 2010 and as a result of business and personal travel we use them quite a bit for our pets. They are absolutely wonderful. As others have mentioned, nothing fazes them. One year I realized after we had landed after a long trip, that I had left some perishable food in a shopping bag in a guest bedroom, called them, they came over, dug through the bags, found it and disposed of it. Animal meds are no problem, they have given all kinds of meds when necessary. We have also had foster kittens, which required them to come several times a day and care for all of them and weigh them all and text me the weights as we were having problems with several not thriving. They also keep an eye on the house and report anything that is out of the ordinary. I wish I could give them ten stars. I have a very high bar and they exceed it. You never come home to a mess, all the pet food bowls are thoroughly washed, and if any animal has had a miss or thrown up, it is cleaned with a note detailing the situation. I can't image how they could be better and we are not easy.

HES 22302 Sunday December 6, 2015

Elizabeth and her team are extremely professional, caring, responsive, and flexible. I know my babies are getting the best of care when I call on Alexandria Pet Care.

RJC 22302 Sunday November 15, 2015

I feel very comfortable trusting my pets, and my house, with Alexandria Pet Care.

Cps 22314 Saturday November 7, 2015

We have been using APC since we moved back to the area 1 1/2 years ago. So happy to have a safe and reliable service. The company is small enough to know all their care givers. Larger companies tend to hire just anyone to fill the position. I want the caregiver coming into my house to have been thoroughly vetted by the company. APC does that. And they checked us before letting the caregiver come to our house alone!

mek 22309 Friday October 16, 2015

We love you and so does Johnny !!!

jw 22314 Monday October 5, 2015

We trust our elderly 16 year old cat to Alexandria Pet Care... We never worry and he is always in great shape and very happy when we return. APC is professional and makes the entire process from reservations through payment easy and flawless.,
Our sweet cat recently started taking 4 pills a day and APC is so professional and handles all is care, including Meds, so well
We've found a gem and plan to be a long-time customer!
