Crosby

Have nothing but great things to say about the care Keri provided to our GSD. She is thorough, organized and our dog, who tends to take time to warm up to new people, took to her immediately as her confidence and approach was perfect for him! Thanks Keri!

Zoe

I was in a difficult position. Airline tickets purchased, family member wedding plans all set and then my dog sitter cancelled!

Being new to Victoria, I didn't know where to turn. After some research, I found DOVI and Keri. She promptly replied, but was booked for those dates. Keri offered and implemented a notice on her FB and Instagram pages with my plight.

Before I knew it, we had a meet'n'greet and a workable scheduled was created between Keri and a fellow pet sitter, Anne.

I went on my mini vacation with the confidence that my Zoe Girl would be taken care of.

Huge Thank you , Keri and Anne.

I highly recommend DOVI

Waffles & Beep

Recently Keri looked after our two little seniors Beep and Waffles. I felt completely confident leaving them in Keri’s care. Before the official pet sitting started we had two in person visits so my pooches could get to know her, and with the detailed intake forms we filled out I really felt Keri was able to keep them on their routine and would be able to handle anything that may have popped up. I appreciated the daily updates and photos too. We have already booked Keri for our next vacation and I feel relief knowing we have found someone so caring to stay with our girls.

Max

(Repeat Client)

Max (and Lucy) is one of my new kitty clients.  Don't tell all my other kitty clients (they all know they are my favorites too) but Max might be at the top of my favorite list!  Not only does he follow me everywhere but he will sit behind me on the couch and give me gentle scalp massages.  What more can a pet sitter ask for?  Maybe a body massage but somehow I don't think might be as soothing & comfortable.

Lucy

(Repeat Client)

Sweet & gentle Lucy is the classic independent woman.  She mostly keeps to herself but does a good play with her kitty toys.  Lucy loves to chat (as does Max) and we have really good conversations, like how much she appreciates her blessed life and being with her litter mate Max.  Lucy & Max have a new dog brother that they are getting used to.  Jack will be making his appearance on this page soon.

Clifford

(Repeat Client)

Clifford is one of my newest senior dogs and much like Harley (mentioned above), Clifford is an opportunist which means counter surfing and drinking your freshly made coffee!  Also like Harley, Clifford suffers with arthritis but that doesn't seem to stop him because playing ball is one of Clifford's favorite things to do.

Odie & Rocky

There's something about this pair that just makes me laugh.  Odie is a firecracker and is a master at destroying a chew toy.  Rocky on the other hand is quite a character.  He loves walking around with a chew toy or ball in his mouth and his favorite place to have zoomies is on the couch!!

Harley

(Repeat Client)

Sweet old boy Harley has a special place in my heart.  Whether enjoying the walks we go on or just chilling at home, Harley is a pet sitters dream client.  He is such a lover of people and animals too.  Harley's favorite thing is when I give him massages as it soothes his old, arthritic bones.

Pippa

Pippa is Saki's sister but she doesn't like Saki so we spend our time separately.  Pippa loves a good game of ball toss and is a master at finding treats in her puzzle games!  This funny girl also loves to cuddle and is one of those dogs that has to sleep right next to you or between your legs.

Saki

(Repeat Client)

Keri provides an awesome, personal, caring and reliable service. She is very knowledgeable and caring and appreciates knowing all your pets needs. Her communication is clear and transparent and her true love for animals shines through. She is also quick to respond and accommodates whenever possible. I am always relaxed knowing she is at our home with our cat and our dog. The cat and dog have a “ complicated” relationship but that Keri manages it expertly! She is terrific!

Doug

First off I love his name!  Doug!  He is quite a chill ginger that loves to stare out the window, play with his aray of toys, as well as hang with you on the couch.

Clarke

As a new dog owner, I was hesitant to leave my new pup. He is still learning his manners and chasing loud cars on his walks. Having Keri care for him while I was gone made it possible for me to relax and enjoy my vacation. She was able to adapt to Clarke's needs so that he got lots of exercise and play while staying safe. The daily updates and pictures were awesome, and I knew that Clarke was being so well cared for. Keri is passionate about caring for animals and has been a great support with all my dog related questions. I would not hesitate in recommending Keri for any of your pet sitting needs.

Koru & Milly

(Repeat Clients)

Keri has been pet sitting for me for 5 years! I have two senior dogs and a frisky cat. I always have peace of mind when she pet sits. I get photos and updates, and they never want to leave her when I come home. I would recommend Keri to anyone who wants their pet to be loved and pampered when they're away.

Gertie

(Repeat Client)

Gertie is the newest member of the Linstead household.  She is the most spoiled of the house pets as she not only has a catio that she loves to spend time in year round, but she also has one of those fancy kitty litter machines that looks much like a giant Easter egg!

Socks

(Repeat Client)

Keri is great! Easy to communicate with, quick to respond to messages. Loved getting photo and video updates while away. Appreciated getting questions about behaviour to help assess Socks (senior kitty) levels of comfort, health, stress.

Annie

Hi Keri! I just wanted to say thank you again and to let you know I got your email and note.  What an amazing service.  Thank you so much for your observations and work with Annie  She walks so much better with me now!  I can really see a difference.  And she has been so calm and happy.  We couldn't have asked for a better dog sitter.  I will definitely be recommending you to our friends.  It's also so good to know that we now have a pet sitter who we can trust and Annie loves.

AJ

Keri is amazing!  She has taken wonderful care of our home, cared for, played with and loved our two high energy senior dogs as if they were her own, for several years! Our house looked better than when we left it and our dogs were always so happy with her! We have received lots of lovely photos and updates while we were away. I had full trust that my fur babies are in the best care possible with Keri!

Lily

Keri recently helped out in a pinch, walking my excitable dog while I was travelling. Lily pup seemed to enjoy her adventure walks with Keri. The picture updates were great while I was missing my fur baby.
