Bruiser absolutely loves "Uncle Stu" and I always come home from vacation to a happy, healthy dog... Petsitters even picks up my mail! Thanks a ton!!
- David and Bruiser, in Edina



I have been a customer of The Pet Sitters for close to 14 years and trust and thank them for all the care they have shown to my beloved schnauzers over the years.
- Chris, Hans, and Beno in Minneapolis





Stuart Astleford has been my pet sitter since 1985. My dogs love him and I love the idea that they are getting excellent care while Im off wandering the world or putting in extra hours on a job or project. That moment when my suitcase is at the front door and my heart is breaking is easier because I know my dogs will be cared for and loved while Im away.
- Karen, on behalf of her English Bulldogs Margaret Rose and her baby brother Armstrong in Minneapolis



Stuart and The Pet Sitters have been catsitting for us for more than 15 years. He's reliable, thorough and has a true love of animals. I come home to very relaxed, contented cats. Plants always look good, too.
