Chera and Travis have been watching our dogs for at least 10 years, and I've never had a problem. I feel very comfortable leaving for a week of more knowing that they will be well taken care of. I trust them both 100%. Both Herbie and Rosie get excited to see them when they come, because they know they will get lots of loving. I highly recommend them.

Notes from a few of our clients.

We owned a 7 lb. Yorkie named Sophie for 16 1/2 years. For the last few years of her life, her health slowly began to fail. She suffered from arthritis and had a lot of stomach problems. One of the main problems was that she refused to eat when both my husband and I were gone for a period of time. Her diet was extremely important, as she could not eat high fat foods without getting sick. We travel a lot for business and leaving Sophie was like leaving a child. We totally trust Chera and Travis. When we were gone, they were the only ones who could get Sophie to not only eat, but eat a proper diet. I strongly recommend Chera and Travis. Your animals will definitely be in the best hands!

My dog is so happy whenever Chera & Travis sit for her. They always take excellent care of her. I never worry about her when she is in their care!

Chera and Travis care for our dog 'Rufus,' a Basset Hound, while our family is away. Rufus is a high-energy dog that demands a lot of attention. Not only is Rufus well cared for, he is happy and fulfilled. The Engstroms are capable, honest and have a ton of energy, we have the utmost trust in them. We feel so fortunate having them care for our dog and home.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend the services of Ma and Paws Critter Care. It has been almost 2 years since I began using their services and each visit has been fantastic.

I travel frequently for my job and I have two pets that have special needs. The flexible scheduling and knowledge of Ma and Paws Critter Care has allowed me to travel without worrying. A few times, they have contacted me to double-check instructions or with concerns regarding my pet’s overall health, and with each call I felt better for their thoroughness and consideration.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. As a pet owner who has conducted a search for exceptional pet care, I know it can be tough! I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We got our two little poodles, Lola and Gigi, just over 3 years ago. The first couple of times we went out of town they stayed at a well-known doggy spa. Each time they fared less well. Once we ended up with Lola spending the night of our return at the emergency vet dehydrated from stomach upset. I was afraid to go out of town. Then the luckiest thing happened; someone at my office gave me Chera & Travis' number. When they came over to meet everyone it was such a instant sense of relief. Lola and Gigi loved them and so did we.

Chera & Travis have stayed with Lola & Gigi many times after the last couple of years for anywhere from a long weekend to two weeks and have always done an amazing job. They not only take excellent care of the girls, but they have made sure everything was taken care of at my house. They have provided me with a wonderful sense of security knowing I can be away and not have to worry about anything at home. I trust them completely.
