I cannot tell you how much I love QCPS! But I'll certainly try. This has been my 3rd trip out-of-town where I couldn't secure any friends or family to commit to taking care of Ripples (my 2 y.o Welsh Corgi). No biggie! Life is hectic and so are schedules, which is why QCPS is such a fantastic service.
On short notice (e.g., < 1-week), I notified QCPS of my trip and they accepted the job. Amber, who has taken care of Ripples before, was notified and reached out. I was excited because she has done such a wonderful job in the past and Ripples is quite taken with her. Amber already knows the Ripster's routines and certainly delivered, arriving for feeding, play, snuggles, and walks. Of course, Amber did not stop short of sending me regular text updates and I was always confident that I could out to her if something changed.
I never like leaving my flufferbutt home alone, but when I have to, I do with confidence because I know Amber loves her as much as I do.
