Testimonials

Cathy & the Urban Pooch has made our lives so much easier.  We travel often and our dog Romeo loves her as well as all the playmates he encounters at The Urban Pooch.  He prances his way to her doorstep and /or into her arms if she picks him up.  We have been steady customers for 5 years and cannot praise her enough.  She is a wealth of canine information.  She is beyond flexible concerning schedules.  Any doggie in her care is a lucky one indeed. We always rest assured knowing Romeo is safe, happy, healthy and loved when he is in her care.

Cathy Scott has been a third parent to our dogs for ten years now.  We were one of her original customers, and she has been around, raising our dogs with us from day one.  Cathy has helped us when we’ve been out for multi-week trips; come to the rescue during emergency last minute travel;  and helped with countless vet, grooming, and ‘taxi’ services. Cathy is not simply a dog walker, or pet sitter… she is part of the family, and treats our dogs as if they were hers.  We have no idea what we would do without all of her help, and our dogs adore her.

We LOVE The Urban Pooch! Cathy is so wonderful with my first child. Panda is now an old man. He is set in his ways and hates change. But when we leave he walks right into The Urban Pooch. I had never seen him do that before with any other dog sitter. I never worry about him while I’m away. Cathy is also wonderful about giving him his necessary meds. I love getting updates about Panda from Cathy. She always replies promptly if you have a question or concern. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is nervous about leaving their pooch.

In the months we have known you, you have enriched all our lives.  Roger and I were very please with the care you gave Sampson while we were on vacation to New England over the Christmas 2005 Holiday.  Words cannot express our thankfulness for the 2 weeks you cared for Sampson. We feel you went above and beyond our pet care needs.  We were so happy with not having to leave Sampson in a kennel. The home care he received was excellent and all his needs were met.  I am sure that whomever uses your service will be more than happy with the results.  Please feel free to give our name and contact information to any of your future clients.

Cathy Scott has provided us and our 9 month old Border Collie/Lab mix puppy Lily, with excellent, professional care.  Cathy is reliable and conscientious when caring for our pets. What I especially appreciate about Cathy is her experience with animals.  She knows dog behavior and training and doesn’t allow you pet to get away with misbehavior.  With having a puppy, I have appreciated all her advice as it has helped us resolve several dog issues.

Furthermore, she is willing to take the extra step to accommodate your schedule.  When doing an overnight or doggie day care, she will pick up or drop your dog off at your home.  Not many pet sitters provide this service.

I hope Cathy has a long and successful career in animal care.  She is a great find.

Cathy is practically a member of our family.  We trust her absolutely, rely on her professionalism and know that our babies will be well taken care of.  The love and devotion that she has shown to our pets over the years is truly priceless!
