Comment: Privileged Pets has been taking care of my golden retrievers for over two years. I can't say enough great things about the care they have received. All of our sitters have been fantastic! Taylor has such a special touch with our pups. They love her to pieces! Thank you Fiona, Taylor and the rest of the team!
Name: Anne Long
Comment: Gina did a GREAT job. The cats were well taken care of. Maybe even spoiled a little bit! I was a little worried because they were so used to Desiree. But Gina has the magic touch. She got Jesse to come out of hiding on day one! Next time I would like to request Gina
You and your staff are like family for us. It is so nice to get away for a few days to refresh and renew and know that our cats are well taken care of. Thanks again!

Comment: The only pet sitting people I would ever use. I have used them for 15+ years and they go above and beyond my expectations every time. You can always go away for a day, week or month and never, ever worry about your home or your pets.
Name: Debbie T.
Comment: I live in Virginia and my daughter who lives in Katy had to come take care of me after surgery. She had Privileged Pets come to her home to care for my 3 granddogs and grandcat. Desiree took wonderful care of them and went above and beyond to handle a situation of a stuck cat in a cabinet. She sent daily updates on how they were doing and you could just feel the love she has for animals. Thank you so much for easing our minds and allowing my daughter to have peace of mind knowing her babies were in good and capable hands. I highly recommend Privileged Pets for your pet sitting needs. They truly show love and caring for your pets. Thank you.

Name: C. Woon
Comment: Privileged pets are the best!! They are the only people my law enforcement hubby trusts to come into our home for lunch visits. They do last minute evening visits when I have to work late! And I left the pack there for 5 days this week and came home to clean, bathed, happy dogs. Thanks for taking care of my pack like they were your own!!
Name: Ashley Pinkerton
Comment: Not only is the petsitting service the best we have experienced, but the notes left by the sitters especially Donna, are so creative. We know that our pets are in good hands when we leave EVERY time. Knowing that the Humane Officer in Katy recommends this company is also a comforting feeling.
Name: Michelle Pemberton
Comment: Privileged Pets is so comforting to have. They allow my husband and I to travel without concern that our “babies” are being well cared for! They even send us email updates while we are gone!! This is truly a company you can trust with both your pets and home.

Comment: I have used Privileged Pets for the last three years and could not be more pleased with their service. I use them everytime we go out of town to “pupsit” my dog Clifford. When we used to board him, he would usually be agitated and exhausted when we picked him up. With Privileged Pets’ at home service, he is relaxed and happy to see us when we come home. The two young women who alternate visiting him, Hollie and Nellie, are as sweet as can be and Clifford really likes them. They walk and feed him, administer any medications he is taking, water my plants indoors and out, bring in the papers, and leave us a note to tell us how he did after each extended visit. They have accommodated us on more than one occasion when we suddenly had to leave town and scheduled a visit at the last minute. I recommend them wholeheartedly.

Comment: Privileged Pets has been caring for our precious babies for over five years. We have the piece of mind knowing that whatever happens while we are away our babies will be in the best hands possible.If you REALLY want only the best for you and your pet this is the answer. Thanks to everyone at Privileged Pets for taking care of us!

Comment: I had the good sense (or fortune) to select Privileged Pets to take care of “my girls” on a regular basis begining Oct 2001. I chose them over the others featured in Pet Sitters International locator line for 2 primary reasons: All the sitters are previous clients & the bios & pictures made them “real”. My girls are not especially friendly, but warmed up to Fiona & Donna within a couple of days……now it is a case of Puppy love for all concerned. Privileged Pets comes to my home daily to give my dachsies a nice mid day walk then my pups get snuggles, cuddles, fresh water & treats. When I travel,Privileged Pets comes 3 times a day and give the girls extra TLC to make up for “mom” being gone. I highly recommend Privileged pets & would be happy to talk with anyone who is considering employing them. Just give your # to the office & I will return your call.
Name: Suzanne Marshall
Comment: Privileged Pets has been unbelievable! My pets have been pampered for 3 years now. They are everything you would want in a petsitter! The pets are always their #1 priority and my animals LOVE it when they come by. I wholeheartedly trust them with my “babies”. Both pet sitting and kennel services are exceptional! It’s truly a “privilege” for your pets to be cared for by Fiona, Jack and the Gang
Name: Deanna Collier
Comment: My husband and I were lucky enough to have been referred to Privileged Pets for dog training. After another trainer urged us to have our 1 yr old Stafforshire Terrier (Daisy) put to sleep because she was a fear biter we decided to get a second opinion. Thank God we did, come to find out, she was biting out of fear, but Jack is teaching us why and what to do about it. He has taught us to build confidence and discipline in her. You would not believe the change in just 2 lessons, I can’t wait to see what she and I are going to learn in the coming weeks. Thank you Jack, you truly are a life saver!

Name: Dianne Robinson
Comment: My husband and I brought our four month old Welsh Corgi to Priviledged Pets to address aggressive tendencies. Because our dog bit so hard and so often when picked up, I was reduced to wearing oven mitts for protection. After our Corgi, my husband and I attended six lessons with Jack Richards, we now have a pet that is a joy to have around. Jack trains dogs effectively and humanely. We were so impressed by his genuine concern for our pet and the others in his care, that we entrusted Jack and Fiona to kennel our Corgi. Brody came back healthy and even more well-behaved than when we left him.
Name: The Beaufords
Comment: We used the services of Priviledged Pets and my cats are happy we did. Often after trips the pets are unhappy and won’t have anything to do with us. You know how pets can be if they want to show you they did not like you leaving them alone with a stranger. This did not happen this time. They are loving to us and have suggested that we can leave again anytime so they can see Suprina (their caregiver) again. Thanks for taking good care of our pets!
Name: Rhonda McDonald
Comment: I highly recommend this pet sitting service! I look forward to the detailed notes left by Suprina each day. She is currently coming by for me around noon Mon – Fri while I am at work to let my 2 fourlegged kid’s out. Haley is 3 1/2 months & Casey is 6 years old. They truely look forward to her visit each day & it really helps on the housebreaking! Kudos to all at Privileged Pets!
Name: Rhonda McDonald
Comment: Thank you so much for such a great service you & Suprina have been providing for my 2 Kerry Blues Casey & Haley! I am thrilled with your service! Kudos to you all! Looking forward to the weeks to come of continued service!
Name: Joanne Callahan
Comment: This is the best service…to be able just to call and tell you when I need you to come.Plans change quickly for us sometimes and it’s never been a problem…Privileged pets also steps up and takes that worry from me. I appreciate the care they give my cat. Thanks for everything…you are the best!!
Name: John Seger
Comment: I just wanted to take the the time to thank Amy & your operation for making an admittedly paranoid single parent of 9 much more comfortable in entrusting them to another person. Having gone without leaving the house for more than several hours at a time for 3 years to actually spending part of a weekend away…well, this was a MAJOR accomplishment. Amy was fantastic…right down to a request or two that may seem overly protective…all with a great attitude & very prompt appointments. I am beyond satisfied with the service & attention she & your group has demonstrated & feel much more comfortable in using your services well into the future. Thank you!!
Comment: I am currently a dog handler for the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, thanks to Jack Richards. In June of 2003 he donated a Labrador Retriever to the department which he trained for narcotic detection work. In a relatively short time the dog had found several large quanities of narcotics and cash. He has been a terrific addition to the department. Jack also trains with us on a regular basis to help maintain the proficiency of our unit. Many thanks to Jack, his wife Fiona and Privileged Pets.

Comment: If my dog could type, he would have typed up a testimonial long ago. Suprina has been looking after our Archie for over six months and I cannot tell you how secure we feel in the attention Archie is receiving. The notes that Suprina leaves are detailed, and make us feel better about leaving our spoiled brat:) We have taken both short and long trips (gone for two weeks) and Archie has never been depressed or upset with us. We actually think he looks forward to his quality time with Suprina!! I would highly recommend both Fiona and Suprina.
Name: Jeanette Geiman
Comment: We have utilized three pet sitting services in the last 13yrs. By far, your service is the best we have used, & therefore I am especially sad that I will need to find a new service after the move. It was a pleasure knowing you & working with you. Privileged Pets will be a hard act to follow! I would be happy to recommend your service.
Name: Margaret Reckling
Comment: I just wanted to say that I was so relieved to find out about priviledged pets! It was always a concern if we traveled, who would look after our attention craving Doberman? I could tell the first 2-3 minutes when visiting with Jack, thatour dog would have experienced, professional and loving care
Name: Michelle Sharp
Comment: In the past, we boarded our dogs when we went out of town. I hated knowing they were kenneled up for days while we were gone. When we found your service, we were thrilled to find people who actually care about our dogs and will come take care of them in our home. Although I know our dogs still hate to see us go, I also know they are happy that they can stay at home and enjoy the service provided by their dog sitter while we are gone. Your service is such a blessing to us. Now my husband and I can go out of town and enjoy our trip knowing our dogs are in wonderful care!
Name: Christine Conner
Comment: Just wanted to say that because of training we received from Jack shortly after we got our dog, we have a wonderfully behaved pet. It is so cool to use hand signals to get her to sit, stay & lie down. Even after we moved out of state, Jack has answered questions & made suggestions about “little things” that have cropped up with our dog. I highly recommend him.
Name: The Nutt family
Comment: Molly Gabby Bob and Doree: Mom was a little hesitant about getting us a pet sitter. She didn’t like the idea of leaving us alone in the house. However we barked her into it as we didn’t want to make the VERY long drive to Dallas. Your sitter was very nice. She told mommy we were very well behaved but I’m sure she fibbed a little. We can be very mouthy when we don’t get our way. Mommy was glad to see us when we got home, but then she drug us all the way to Rockport,TX. It took almost FIVE hours because some road was closed. We wish we coulda stayed home to play with Your sitter some more. Oh well…maybe next time.
Comment: Jack didn’t realize when we were training Molly and then Gracie a year later that our visiting during training would save Gracie’s life. Sat. night (around midnight) Gracie found a rat bait outside and ingested part of it. Jack had told me when they work with police dogs they always carry peroxide in their kits. If the narcotic dog should break through a bag they find you have to make sure none goes into their system. You squirt the peroxide down their throat, everything in their stomach will come up, and then you follow through with water. The vet added an hour after the peroxide give them a piece of bread. Three days later there was sunshine so Molly, Gracie and Judy went to walk in the park thanks to what I learned from Jack. I cannot begin to thank Jack enough!!!
Comment: Privileged Pets is the best thing that’s happened since the doggie-door! No longer do we have to stress about leaving the dogs at a kennel. Even the best ones don’t compare to the comfort of your own home, just ask the dogs, Molly & Maggie. They enjoy visits from
your sitters, and we can leave town knowing the dogs (and our property) are in good hands. Thank you!
Comment: Your sitter took care of our pets while we were away. When we arrived home, the pets were healthy & happy. She left us a note saying how things went. She did a great job & we now feel very comfortable with Privileged Pets & will definitely call on you again. It was so much better leaving them in their home while we went away. We know that made them happy which is the most important thing of all. Thanks Privileged Pets!Awesome job!!!
Name: Vicki Ash
Comment: Thanks Fiona and Amy for caring for my 2 cats when I have to leave. It certainly makes leaving them easier knowing that you two will be there everyday and loving on them everyday. I don’t worry nearly as much about them because I know they are in great hands. Thanks again. So glad I found you!
Name: Jason Wilmoth
Comment: Privileged Pets is an AMAZING service. Our pet sitter is so friendly and always makes herself available for our needs. We no longer have to disrupt our dogs’ lives by putting them in a kennel for up to a week at a time. Fiona, the owner, is also an extremely nice person who knows me by my first name. We look at Privileged Pets as family, and even leave a house key with them permanently. I have and will continue to recommend this service to everyone that I know that have pets.
Name: Geraldine Hairgrove
Comment: Jack, Thanks so much for your help with the training of my Rusty. You helped me to understand the training process, which is exactly what I wished to be able to do. What a great day when dog & owner accomplish so much!
Name: Colleen West
Comment: I have been utilizing Privileged Pets for the past two years.
The sitters and Fiona are wonderful. I no longer “dread” going out of town. I know that my dogs are being very well cared for. It is such a comfort knowing they are safe, in their own environment, doing whatever it is that dogs do all day. I enjoy reading the notes that the sitter leaves telling how well they ate and how they behaved. (It seems they behave better when I am gone) I have found all the staff to be professional, caring, considerate, and most importantly, true animal lovers.
Name: Renee Collins
Comment: We relocated to Katy in October and are so pleased to have discovered Privileged Pets. It has given us peace of mind in leaving our two kitties while we travel. Our pet sitter visited our home prior to our first trip to meet our two cats and discuss the service. I liked the fact that our sitter had an organized method of gathering all our information and going over policies. We really appreciate having
our sitter call and/or e-mail with updates on our kitties. Added bonuses of using this service are: having plants watered, mail brought in, and having someone to visit your home each day while you’re away. I would recommend this service to anyone.
Name: Bryony J. Welsh
Comment: I have used Privileged Pets for about 3 years now – having tried several other kennels which my dogs did not like. Privileged Pets are very reliable, whether sitting at my home or taking my dogs into the kennels. I can leave knowing that they are well cared for. Incidentally, when I return from a trip my house is cleaner than it would have been if I had been at home! Jaime comes every day to walk my dogs while I am at work and I’m sure we all appreciate her greatly.
Name: Wayne Wisniewski
Comment: Jamie pet sits for us and the dogs love her! They look forward to having her drop by, give them some TLC and some great exercise during the day. We also love the notes she leaves letting us know how the dogs did!!!
Name: Darla McLeroy aka “Axel’s mom”
Comment: I have used the services of Privileged Pets since 1997. At that time I had an aging sheltie with hearing loss and very bad arthritis in his hip joints. Fiona was always patient and caring with him, letting him set the pace during her visits. When he crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, I received such a sweet card from her, it really let me know that she truly cares for the pets entrusted to her. I now have another sheltie, and although I don’t need their services daily as before, any time I call they are ready and willing to help out.
Our sitter comes in, goes above and beyond in service, and I come home to a happy dog and a detailed note letting me know about the visit. As long as Privileged Pets is available to help me with my pet care, I wouldn’t consider using any other service. Their care and consideration give me the freedom to do my job without worrying about my pet.
Name: Tango and Pacer G.
Comment: Good Morning Jaime, Tango and Pacer here just wanting to thank you for coming to visit us each Friday while my Mom is at work and the lawn is cut. We like the cut lawn part but do not like staying in our crate all day. You take very good care of us, play with us and are flexible when we need you to come early to let us out! Mom is more relaxed too knowing that she does not have to worry about us while she is at work earning enough money to keep us in the lifestyle we have become quite used to! Got to keep those new squeaky tools coming. Again thanks to PP and our best friend Jaime!
Name: Ed and Linda Miller
Comment: I am very happy with the service we received from Privileged pets. I never have to worry when I am out of town. I know
our sitter will take very good care of our babies while we are away. Our pets are always happy and in a good mood when we return. I think this service is wonderful.. My Pets and I are very thankful to have such a wonderful
sitter to watch out for them.
Name: Valerie and Jodie Yake
Comment: Our regular sitter takes wonderful care of our two young and active Shelties on the occasion we are out of town. I still remember the first time our sitter helped us and called to ask where our carpet cleaner would be because one of our girls had a bit of an accident. I really appreciated the call and the extra care she gave us on the visit. We always feel confident that our girls will have great care while we are away and Lacy and Sunny love to play with the sitter and be spoiled. We appreciate the service so much!!!

Comment: MEOW!!! MEOW!!! MEOW!!! MEOW!!! MEOW!!! That’s catspeak for two paws up for Jaime S. for looking after my every need while my “owners” went on still another vacation without me. Looking forward to my next visit with The Ladies of Privleged Pets. Lightning Murphy PS Thanks again

Comment: This was my first time to try a professional pet sitting service and I couldn’t have been more pleased! Having three cats, it’s always so hard to leave them locked in a cage at the vet’s office with barking dogs and strange surroundings. They always seem so traumatized by the whole experience. But when Jaime (our pet sitter) came to our home to meet me and the cats, I immediately knew it was the right choice. Jaime was so sweet and very competent…I knew the cats would be in good hands. And when we did come back home there was a nice long note letting us know how everything went and of course the cats were all fine! Also,everything was so neat and clean by their food dishes, cat boxes etc. Jaime did a great job and this actually came out much less expensive than leaving them in a clinic…but mostly the cats seemed much happier and that was the most important thing to me! I will definitely use Privileged Pets again!! Thanks!!
Name: Robin, Tala, and Samson Jack
Comment: I have been using PP since my female, Tala, was a puppy (about 5 years) and they have been wonderful. Whether pet sitting or walking, my two always look forward to them coming. And my male, Samson, adores the sitter, we always tell him his “girlfriend” is coming when she comes to petsit for us ;-} Thye have always been accomodating and have saved us a few times when we called at the last minute. They truly love what they do and it shows.
Name: Tracie and Scribble K.
Comment: Fiona, I just wanted to let you know how much we truly appreciate the quality-care that
the sitter provides, in her daily visits. Both my husband and I work long hours and there is absolutely no way I would have any peace of mind, if it wasn’t for your wonderful service and great sitters. The sitters attention to detail and personalized care of our boy, puts my mind at ease. I really appreciate the notes she leaves me every day and the love that she provides my pet while I’m gone. I know he is infinitely happier and more well-adjusted as a result of the sitters loving care. Thank you both so very much for doing such a great job…we’ve never used a pet-sitting service before, but now that we have Privileged Pets, we wouldn’t give it up for the world.
Comment: Our family has been a Privileged Pets client for almost thirteen years. Throughout those years, our beloved labrador retrievers have gotten remarkable attention, love, and care from their P-Pet sitters. Our current sitter treats our dogs like her own. Our “back-up” sitter, Jamie is phenomenal too. Thanks to Jamie, and Privileged Pets owner, Fiona for giving us “peace of mind”, knowing our pets are receiving the best possible care while we are away.
Comment: Thank you for all of your time and energies spent with Cherokee and Willy. We have been boarding Cherokee for about two years and having the sitter come to take care of our cat Willy when we are away during that time period. Our animals are always happy and healthy when we return. We couldn’t be more grateful.
Name: Derek & Kim
Comment: I would like to give 2 thumbs up to Jaime for taking such great care of Damian, Riley, and Lilly!!! I appreciate the note letting me know that everything went ok while we were gone. I am definately reassured that using an in-home pet sitter is the only way to go!!! We will be using you again!!!
Name: Misty Wright
Comment: Privileged Pets was a lifesaver to me & my husband. We were recently married when I met Fiona, Jack and their wonderful petsitters and we had a special situation in that we had blended pets. My dog hated my husband’s dog and was quite vicious towards her. Therefore, we had to keep them separated. Privileged Pets has done a wonderful job taking care of our Hershey in that they know and understand that the crazy outside dog, can never be let in to attack the normal inside dog. I only trust a handful of people to be around and care for my dogs and without a doubt, the friends at Privileged Pets are excellent dog handlers. I can feel confident knowing that my inside baby (Hershey) is well cared for while I’m working downtown. I highly recommend Privileged Pets and would welcome any questions that anyone might have.

Comment: Just a quick note to say “Thanks Privileged Pets” for all you do for us and our pets. We always come home to 4 happy, healthy dogs and 2 well cared for horses, plus a note letting us know all that went on while we were away. My pets are truelly my kids, and I don’t trust just anyone to take care of them! Thanks again Privileged Pets!Just a quick note to say “Thanks Privileged Pets” for all you do for us and our pets.

Comment: Privileged Pets did a great job with my dog Nani. I’ve only used the service once so far, but I will be using them again. They didn’t hesitate to call me with a concern while I was out aof town. That made me feel like they really care for the pets. Thanks for the great job!

Name: Susan J.
Comment: Dear Priveleged Pets, We recently went out of town for about 10 deays and as we are rather new to the area we needed someone to come in and check on our cats for us. I contacted your company and Jaime came out to talk about what your company could do. Well we’ve just gotten back and everything appears to have gone well. The cats are just fine and the plants were watered and the mail was on the counter. It did give us peace of mind knowing the cats would be well taken care of while we were gone. Thanks again
Name: Mary Hamilton
Comment: I’ve been using Priv. Pets for several years now. My dog, Cory, tends to be nervous in kennels and I hated leaving her there. The last time she stayed in a kennel, they didn’t give her the allergy shot she was supposed to have and didn’t give her medicine according to instructions. I happened to see a trailer or truck with Priv. Pets on the side and called. I’ve been thoroughly pleased with both the care Cory receives and the extras, like turning lights on and off, bringing in mail, putting out garbage and watering plants. And last spring when we all came down with a stomach virus on the way home from vacation, it was such a comfort to call Priv. Pets and know they’d be able to take care of Cory until we were well enough to make it home. You guys are great!!!
Name: Mike and Margaret Junot
Comment: Dear Privileged Pets, Thank you very much for taking care of our cat, Gemini, while we were away last week and early this week. He was very happy to see us, and although he seemed lonely, he was very content to be at home in familiar surroundings while we were away. We got back home on Tuesday as scheduled, and Gemini seems already back to his normal ways, as if we never left. It is a real comfort and peace of mind to know that you take good care of our pet, and this will give us that same comfort the next time we are away. Thanks again,
Privileged Pets for a fine job !!!!

Comment: Privileged Pets has watched my beloved little cat “Annie” on two different occasions recently, Annie was well taken cared with all of myinstructions carried out to perfection by your Friendly and Caring Pet Sitter. I will recommend your Pet Sitting Service to all of my friends and neighbors!
Comment: My furry companions are always calm and happy when I get home – so I know that they are getting the care they need.
Comment: Your sitter does an excellent job caring for my horse. It is so
very difficult to find somebody that you can trust with these high maintenance “pets ” and the sitter definetly has my trust! It allows me to leave town with peace of mind. Great job!
Name: Kelly Britain
Comment: I used to hate traveling as I had to board my dogs which was always such a traumatic experience. Now that I have found Privileged Pets, I can go out of town knowing that my dogs/cat are safe, happy, well cared for, in their own environment and not just locked up in a cage. Not only is their service incredibly professional but their fees are very reasonable. I highly recommend their services!!!

Comment: Gosh, I cannot even remember when we started with Privileged Pets. Fiona and her crew have taken care of our precious Casper and Tusha (deceased 4 + years ago) and now care for our sweet Sassy and Baby Kitty. Yes, we love all animals but are real cat lovers. Privileged Pets takes good care of our “babies” and our home. We highly recommend them.
Name: Tango & Pacer
Comment: Tango and Pacer would like to update their testimonial of a couple of yrs ago to say that while they miss Jaimie and were sad to see her go; they have fallen in love with the sitter who has not missed a beat when it comes to taking extra good care of them. I have since used PP to care for my kids while I travel along with my “lawn” day visits and have never been disappointed. Continues to be a truly a first class organization. And Fiona’s other half (I won’t say better-sorry Jack) was fantastic when he worked with Tango and Pacer so that we could all learn (Mom included) to walk on the leash together. We have many great walks since then.
Location: Katy, Texas
Comment: Fiona, Just a quick email to let you know we made it home at about 1:30 this morning. It is such a convenience having Privileged Pets come to the house, over having to take the animals to a kennel and pick them up again at the end of a trip. We sure appreciate having you. It is a comfort to be able to go on vacation and not have to worry that they are getting competent care. Thanks for all you do. Phyllis
Comment: I want to thank Ashley for taking such good care of our older pets. Molly, a 14 yr. old arthritic Border Collie/Lab mix and Tipsy, a 13 yr old diabetic cat were as happy as could be when we got home. It is such a relief to know that we can leave town and they will be comfortable at home and cheaper than the vet, too. Thanks again. Every word is true. I can’t thank you enough. Boarding at the vet was so traumatic for them. The cat’s sugar level went thru the roof from stress the last time she was boarded, even with insulin. I have put your check in the mail with a small tip (which it could be more) for Ashley. Carla

Comment: We needed someone to watch our 3 dogs over 4th of July weekend, and Suzanne was great! She gave us nightly emails to let us know how the day went, and even sent us pictures of the dogs playing. I felt very comfortable with her watching over our loved ones in our absence – This was our first time to do a pet sit, and we’ll definitely do them in the future. Suzanne was the next best thing to us being there ourselves! I would highly recommend Pet Sitting!!!

Location: Richmond, Texas
Comment: When we moved to Texas in December, finding a pet sitter was a high priority. Our previous pet sitter in Ohio was the best and I was afraid I would never find anyone to replace her. Wrong !! Privileged Pets are even better. I feel very fortunate to have found someone who gives me the peace of mind to leave home and not worry about my 3 kitties and rabbit. Not only do they get the best care and attention, but so does our house, pool, etc.
Your sitter has already gone beyond the call of duty to handle an emergency that occurred while we were gone and saw it through to the end. We couldn’t be happier and I would recommend Privileged Pets to the most particular pet owner. In fact, that might be me.

Comment: Once again my experience with Privileged Pets was wonderful! I have been using their service for about 4 years and it has always been to take care of my cats, but this time I was asking them to take care of my 4 cats and 8 birds! The birds were left behind at my house when my son came home for Christmas last year. I’m not really a bird person but I have come to love them and wanted them to be well taken care of. Our sitter did everything I do and then some… the birds are very messy and tend to scatter seeds everywhere. I had just thought I would clean it all up when I returned, but our sitter Lisa did a great job of feeding and providing clean water AND cleaning up all the mess the birds tend to make. I was very pleased. Even the cats seemed happy when we returned and they always sulk for a few days when we get back.

Comment: Privileged Pets is a wonderful pet sitter for my diabetic cat. I have used her now for two weekends and I have felt total peace knowing she is looking after my “child”. The sitter leaves me notes letting me know how he behaved and how everything went.

Comment: I also wanted to let you know how wonderful Anne-Marie was. I was in Hawaii for my wedding and honeymoon and this was the first time I had ever used a pet sitting service. I was getting a little nervous about the hurricane but Anne-Marie was giving me daily updates via email, text messages and phone calls which put my mind at ease. She was at my house checking on my boys everyday even though she didn’t have power. She even offered to take them to her house if my power did not come back on. This girl went above and beyond what her job was and I will not forget it. She put my mind at ease which allowed me to enjoy my vacation and not worry about my animals and my house. I hope all the other customers were as lucky to get someone like Anne-Marie during the hurricane. I will definitely be using you guys in the future thanks to her.

Comment: I’d like to tell you about two very good friends; Jack and Fiona Richards. Jack and I became fast friends years ago, when we were both working as K9 handlers on different departments. We spent a lot of time together training with our K9’s. I transferred to Amarillo in 1999, but Jack and I have stayed in touch over the years. When Hurricane Ike hit, I was deployed to Houston to work. We had made arrangements for trailers, cook shacks and so forth, but they were delayed nearly 48 hours, and we realized we had no food, and no place to sleep. I called Jack and told him I was in town working…and was homeless. I was told immediately not to even ask, and was given directions to Jack and Fiona’s home. I was given a spare bedroom, food from the kitchen, a key to the house, and a kennel for Ziego. Jack and Fiona put up with my 5:30 AM departures and my frequent 2:30 AM arrivals back at the house. I cannot describe as eloquently as I would like about their kindness and hospitality. But to those of you reading this, I just want to tell Jack and Fiona, “God bless and keep both of you.” Both Jack and Fiona are the kind of people that step up and are counted when things get rough. Jack, Fiona…both of you are pure gold. Thank you for everything. Rick Stalder Amarillo, TX

Comment: Jack Richards worked miracles with my rescued Weimaraner. He eliminated her aggressive behavior in a humane manner and returned a sweet, loving family member. Jack also took time to improve my ability to handle and interact with dogs. The facility is animal friendly and conducive to learning for dogs and their owners. Jack goes a step further by providing training sessions in public locations to ease that transition from Privileged Pets to home. This was a 100% positive and successful experience. I highly recommend Jack Richards.

Comment: “My cat is 18 years old and Privileged Pets has been his pet sitter for the last two years. Privileged Pets truly cares about Napoleon and treats him as her own. She has consistently extended herself on our behalf and helped out in so many extra ways whenever we are traveling. Each and every time we return home, our cat is calm, happy and relaxed…it is clear that he felt reassured and cared for while we are gone. We are extremely pleased with the customer service we receive from Privileged Pets and have recommended them to five other families on our street!”

Comment: We are so happy to have found Privileged Pets! The sitter takes wonderful care of our babies when we travel. They are so much happier when we come home! It definately puts you at ease while traveling, knowing everything is fine back home. During our last trip our dog was ill and the sitter made sure he was well taken care of and kept us updated regularily. You can tell that she genuinely cares about animals! We highly recommend Privileged Pets.

Comment: When circumstances in my life made it such that I could no longer care for my standard poodle, I didn’t klnow who to turn to for help. My first attempt was a failure and I was desperate to find a new home for my pet. I called Jack Richards and asked him to help me. He went and picked up my dog at the poodle rescue and brought him back to his place where he worked with him on training and behavior and did a lot of networking to find the right home for my pet. No one else cared enough to believe in my animal and not give up on him. I can never thank the Richards enough!

Comment: I have been using Privileged Pets since 2001. I will not use any other service! They have trained, boarded, and sat for my dog. Privileged Pets is the best. She is conscientious and thorough, and we do not worry at all when we are gone. Thank you so much!

Comment: “Two things set Fiona and Privileged Pets apart from other sitting services – her integrity and her love of all living creatures. My animals are my family, but when I go out of town – for a day or for an extended period of time – I don’t have to worry about them. Fiona will be at my home when she is expected and not just feed my cats, but spend time with them. She makes sure their needs are met both for food and for companionship. If there is a problem, such as a medical emergency, Fiona knows what to do and handles things as I would if I had been home. I won’t have anyone else take care of my animals except Privileged Pets. Aside from the business, Fiona is a fun, happy, energetic person to be around. I enjoy her company so I know my animals do too!”
Name: Colin Vickers
Comment: “Fiona runs a fantastic upscale pet sitting service. She has trained her sitters well, and I know that all my animals will get the best of care while I’m out of town. She has looked after my dogs, cats, horse, chickens, and more, and we’ve never had a problem. She provides email and telephone updates as desired, and there’s always a nice note with the summary of the visits when I return. Thanks Fiona, you’re the best!”

Comment: “Fiona and her husband Jack run a top quality pet facility in west Katy. We have used them to look after Bailey our border collie many times and each time she has been extremely well looked after and loved. When she returns home she is exhausted which means she has been interacting (and playing) with other dogs the entire time she was there. On a couple of occasions Bailey has had health issues and they dealt with these very professionally taking her to the vet we use in the Katy area. The staff at Privileged Pets are always so pleased to see Bailey. Our first contact with Privileged Pets was as a result of some discipline issues we were having with Bailey. Jack who was a dog trainer for the Houston Police Department gave us some techniques and instructions to correct her behavioral issues and we still them today. I highly recommend Fiona and Jack at Privileged Pets. Give them a call.” Service Category: Pet Care Year first hired: 2006 (hired more than once) Top Qualities: Great Results, Good Value, High Integrity.

Comment: This is the best thing about moving to Texas! We recently moved to Texas from Oklahoma and I did not want to traumatize my cats by putting them in a kennel. Acacia took such good care of them and she even brought in the paper for us! I am so happy to have found this wonderful service and will definitely use them again.

Comment: “Privileged Pets is a wonderful resources! Her commitment to the well being of our dogs and cats is very much appreciated. I can always count on Privileged Pets providing excellent service, even if I call her while I am stuck at an airport and ask her to let my dogs out because I am running later than expected. Privileged Pets always comes through!”

Comment: “It’s such a relief for me to know I can contact Privileged Pets to take care of my furry kids any time I need her. She has never let me down, even on short notice or weird times. It’s also a comfort to know that she won’t be thrown by any quirks, like Ellie’s complete disinterest in doing her business. Somehow the sitter gets her to do it and doesn’t leave until she does. Also Cooper is scared of strangers, so the sitter worked with him until she was no longer a stranger. She’s also great with cats. It would be a lot harder for me to have pets in Houston if I didn’t know Privileged Pets! So thanks from my extended family!”

Comment: “Privileged Pets has taken bare of my two schnauzer dogs for the last 4 years. She has been extrcordinarily reliable, trustworthy and dependable. She cares very much for my dogs and I can count on her anytime to look out for them. I highly recommend her and feel that she is well worth the expense.”

Comment: “Privileged Pets has taken care of my two golden retrievers for over a year now. Whether I’m traveling and need long-term boarding or just need someone to look in on them during the day, she always comes through and does an awesome job. She is extremely personable and follows up every job with a personal note or e-mail to let me know how the guys are doing. It’s great to know that someone is looking in on the furry guys who loves them as much as I do!”

Comment: “Privileged Pets has consistently provided excellent service and trust-worthy employees to care for our animals.
The sitter spent time with us initially to understand our needs and answered all our questions in a friendly and professional manner. She responds very quickly to all requests or questions and her employees are reliable and caring with our pets. I have referred her to a friend who was thrilled with her services as well.”

Comment: I have taken my boys to Privileged Pets for over 2 years now. They were our first boarders after we adopted our boys. We tried another boarder within that time period and decided that there was no place like home and went back to P-Pets. Thanks Fiona and staff for a being so good with our boys.
Comment: Jack we found a great (and experienced) home for Rio in San Antonio before we left for Australia, thanks to his training, Chloe is with my girlfriend and Bridget came with us since she was the only one suitable for traveling Hope business is good.

Comment: Just wanted to thank Jack for all of his training advice. It works!!!!!!! Lilah is learning and behaving so much better, she also seems so much happier since she now knows what we want her to do. Today at the dog park she was running with a pack of dogs and I decided to test her. I called her and told her to come, she stopped running with her new “friends” and came right to me and sat down. A proud moment for me. Thank you, thank you, Jack. You know your stuff. Marie, David and Daniel K.

Comment: Jack is remarkable!! We brought our Border Collie Bear to train with him a few weeks ago and Wow, our dog is like a different dog! He was so shy and scared before on walks and now he is a proud confident dog. My girls have him jumping through hoops, using the clicker to train him. We are beyond pleased with how well Jack trained Bear and our family on how to be good communicators with each other. Thanks Jack!!

Comment: Fiona and Cissy at Privileged Pets are absolute lifesavers: I have been called out of town on an hour’s notice, gotten stuck out of town for an additional week, or just needed someone to go over and check on a sick dog, and these folks come through every time. They are simply the best!

Comment: I’m back home and I was greeted with lots of love from Phebe and Sharlat. They look fantastic and I just can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you did in caring for them. I will be so pleased to recommend you to all my friends and family.

Comment: Dear Fiona and Meridith,Thanks for taking such great care of the kitties while we were away! We came back yesterday afternoon to all three being completely relaxed and very content. Logan was especially thankful, as he does not like to be confined in a kennel b/c then he can’t be the alpha male/ruler all locked up! LOL…
I think you made three great new friends in Mac, Logan and Hazel…. They send their sincere thanks and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Comment: Thank you. I like this new setup now. Kristina had Simba upstairs for a while on a leash and I heard the clicker. He is just now out for a walk with David and his new training collar, so that should be a good walk. He spent some time in the crate while I went to the grocery store. Hopefully we will regain control in the house and I will keep in touch if we have any questions. Thanks, Bente

Comment: Just wanted to let you know we were very satisfied and appreciative of you all taking care of Smudge and Gracie while we were out of town last month. Our trip was kind of a last minute thing, so was very pleased that you all were available that weekend.Appreciate all that you all do.
Name: Francis G
Comment: Thank you so much for the excellent care you have always provided. Because of the great care you provide, I have peace of mind while I am away from home. Most important for me is that my babies are able to stay home and not be stressed by being abandoned in a strange place and caged up.
Thank you Amanda for being so good with my precious ones. I truly appreciated the note and update you provided. Thank you Fiona for the great service your company provides.

Comment: We recently moved from Charlotte, NC to Fulshear and our pets have always been kept by family. They are very spoiled. With family 17 hours away and the need to be able to travel back home without the stress and worry, Privileged Pets was recommended to me.
When Desiree walked into my house and our 8 year old rat Terrier Max decided he loved her, I knew I would have no worries. Max is our grumpy old man and usually my adult daughter has to keep him. He won’t eat or go out for anyone else. We also have three other dogs and a cat. Our other dogs are two old ladies and a young lady, who just adored Desiree! Our cat, well he is a cat. Feed him and let him come and go as he pleases, and you are great.
Our first weekend back home was stress free! We returned to find our home just as we left it and all of the animals happy. None of them appeared to have any separation anxiety from us leaving!
Finding Priviledged Pets was a blessing! I know I can leave at a moment’s notice and everyone and everything will be expertly cared for. We are the “Priviledged” ones!

Comment: Desiree has pet sit Elvis our poodle 2 times now and we are very pleased with how she takes care of him. I used to hate to go out of town and leave him and now I’m at ease just knowing Desiree is there to watch Elvis. Thanks Privileged Pets for bringing Desiree to us.

Comment: I have been using Priviledged Pets for years now. They give the best care to my pets and I never have to worry. I always look forward to the notes they leave “from the pets”. They are so cute. They really take care of them and are not just running in and out of your house like many other pet services do. I highly recomend Priviledged Pets. They are the best!
Name: Diana Pratt
Comment: Hello! I just wanted to write and let you know that I was so happy with the care that Desiree took with my cats last week. My girls were so “normal” when we got home, it was like we had only gone to work! I was so pleased! She also texted me to let me know they were ok, and I really appreciated that!We don’t travel a lot, maybe two or three times a year, but I’m glad we got established with you, and would like for you keep my credit card and house key on file, so taht when we do travel, we have someone to care for our fur babies!
Again, many thanks to Desiree!

Comment: Privileged Pets took amazing care of my big dog! We had a last minute trip come up over the holidays and the staff at Privileged Pets bent over backwards to accommodate our dog. He is a chow mix and he can be difficult to care for, but the team at Privileged Pets took great care of him during our trip. We opted for ”in-home” pet sitting and prior to our trip, Candace and Frank came out to our house to make sure our dog was comfortable with them. Fiona and the staff in the office were just amazing- friendly, polite, and knowledgeable. I cannot possibly explain how wonderfully the staff treated us and our furry friend! Thank you everyone at Privileged Pets for helping us!

Comment: I was very blessed when I found Jack and Fiona Richards with Privileged Pets per recommendation from a friend of mine in Houston. I had just acquired a Golden Retriever 8 week old puppy (Duke) and was working full time. From the moment I met the folks at Privileged Pets I knew I had hit the jackpot of dog sitting/boarding/training!! Their professionalism, care, attention and love they give our animals is by far the best. To see my dog now a 10 month old run out of the car when I am dropping him off at Privileged Pets and being so happy to see everyone there is a huge indication as a dog owner that my pet is being treated to the high standards. Their facilities whether rain or shine are always clean, smell clean and I am a neat freak so this is another great indication of this business. Another great indicator is when I pick him up he always smells clean and not that typical boarding place funky smell. Fiona and Jack along with Desiree, Penny and the crew have taken care of my Duke since he was 8 weeks old through pet sitting, doggie day care, boarding and training. They have helped me raise this pup who is now becoming a great dog that is accustomed to everyone and any dog or size. Couldn’t have selected a better place to help me take care of my Duke and teach me how to be a better dog owner. I highly recommend Privileged Pets to any pet owner and I usually do not recommend anyone so this says a lot about my personal experience with them. Thank You Privileged Pets for taking care of my DUKE!! He loves you all!!
