Robert is excellent. He is communicative and reliable, and my dog is always a happy camper when we get home! Robert sends updates and photos after each visit, putting my mind at ease that all is okay while I’m gone. Robert’s services are an excellent alternative to boarding or doggy day care. We started using him when our dog tore his ACL and couldn’t attend his usual day care facility. Robert was excellent watching our dog while he was still recovering and continues to be my go to when we need to go out of town. I highly recommend!

We loved that Robert and the crew from Away Home and Pet Care of Utah loved on our fur children while we were away. We were confident of their love of our pets and their constant feedback and daily check ins. It’s so much more personalized than a kennel where the pets have the luxury of being in their own home environment. Thank you Robert for your love and care!

It gave us such piece of mind to have Robert coming over to take care of our furbabies. He was so amazing to send us pictures daily showing us how happy and well cared for they were. Will DEFINITELY use Away Home again. Repeat customers for life!

This is such a fantastic and professional service! My husband and I were out of town for a week. Our dogs were staying with elderly relative. Robert came daily and walked our dogs. By day 3, the dogs started getting very excited in anticipation of their time with Robert. I especially loved the daily report card, updates and pictures of their time together. Robert loves animals and it shows! I'm so glad I had access to Away Home & Pet Care. I'll definitely be making arrangements again.

I am so pleased with this pet care service and I intend to use them again! I know my cat and my home are in good hands with Robert who is very attentive. We had peace of mind with the daily reports and pictures and daily responsiveness to questions/concerns. It’s a professional service with very open communication. The app is a great tool also. And I was so touched to receive a plaque with a beautiful picture of my cat taken by Robert during the visit! 😀

This company and service has been the best that I have ever experienced. We had to find someone to care for our Kitty while the kitties owner had surgery. We had a great meet and greet and have never been more more pleased with this service. They are reliable and they take the best care of your animals.

We were a little nervous about getting a pet sitter for our three cats, two of them seniors, but Robert tamed those fears with his first meet and greet visit. He made friends with our cats and had our very senior cat (16) coming out for pets soon after we left. It was such a relief to enjoy our trip away (2 weeks) and know they were in good hands. We were also concerned about the health of our senior cats with someone else, but they are in good shape and not at all nervous as they would be if they had gone to a kennel. We would definitely employ Robert and Away Home & Pet Care on another vacation.

When we had to drop everything and go out of town we called Away Home and were thrilled that Robert was able to come by so quickly. His appearance and decorum was neat and tidy, very professional. He was very detail oriented, very good with our two dogs and cat. They took to him right away. He took detailed notes on all our pets' needs and we felt confident he would take excellent care of them. The rates were very reasonable for two visits (morning and night), and we loved how he shared a well being report with us from each visit which included a short description of the visit and pictures. When we arrived home we found that Robert also left a fantastic picture collage of our pets. Super cute, and much appreciated. All in all, it's clear that Robert takes pride in going the extra mile, and we will definitely be hiring him for all our future trips. It's so nice, and much less stressful on our pets, to enable them to stay at home while still receiving truly excellent care. Thank you, Robert!

I have been a client of Away Home & Pet Care for nearly two years. They are life savers and I don't know how I could own a dog without their help. I particularly appreciate their flexibility and willingness to adapt to my ever-changing schedule ... as well as the goofy pictures I get from my dog's daily walks.

I can’t tell you how much we appreciate all you’ve done for our cats and for us. You’ve made it easier to relax and just enjoy our trip – so much that we want to take another trip around New Year’s! Things were GREAT when we got home. The kids were glad to see us, but they weren’t stressed out. I don’t know how your pet sitter did it, but he appears to be the only person who can care for Peakie Pie while we’re gone without her getting freaked out! The only issue is that they’re annoyed with us for not being as good at being Moms as you are at being their temporary guardian!  You were extraordinary!! I.C. and R.T.

Robert was very good with keeping us updated twice a day. He took excellent care of our dog and house. When we missed our flight home, he was more than gracious in helping us out by extending his service. Excellent Service! M.A.

Client - Pet Sitting, West Haven, UT

Thank you very much for taking care of my 16-year-old Charlie. As you know, Charlie has a host of medical problems and I felt very comfortable leaving him in your care. I was a little nervous at first, but as I started getting the text messages every day indicating what meds were given and at what time, I began to feel at ease. By the end of the trip, I was completely confident that Charlie was in good hands. The fact that you are certified for pet first-aid was a real plus. I will recommend your pet sitting services to all my friends. I’m going out-of-town again for 2 weeks in September and will definitely be calling you to care for Charlie again. S.P.

Client - Pet Sitting, Irmo, SC

Robert, thank you for caring for our 4 dogs, 3 cats, 1 snake, 2 lizards and our fish while we were on vacation.  Your service is an incredible value and sure beats the heck out of putting our animals in a kennel! We’ll be calling you again. J.W.

Client - Pet Sitting, Columbia, SC

I had total peace of mind and appreciated the daily contact with text messages………I’ve never left home and not worried about the house until using this service. We will never board the dogs again. The cats were all happy……….we usually have one or two that are so mad at us for leaving and all the animals were just as happy and content when we got home that it was like we never left. Thank-you so much. Customer Satisfaction Survey

I truly cannot think of any way to improve. I was so pleased and surprised by the good service, as were my neighbors, who spoke very highly of you! Customer Satisfaction Survey

I feel very comfortable leaving Boston with his dog walker while I am at work. Boston almost seems to have more energy when I get home, but I think it is his excitement from having a great day. He is no longer sad and bored because he is alone all day. It is such a relief to not worry about him when I am gone 10+ hours a day. Thank you so much for this great service. I have recommended you to everyone that I know. A.R.

I only have one complaint! Our house sitter put me to shame. My plants never looked so good! J.H.

House Sitting Client, West Columbia, SC

Thanks so much. It feels so good to have your service. We have worried about our pets for years! Now – NO WORRIES! R.T. and C.W.
