"We were so impressed with Kriss of College Heights Pet Sitters organization and thoughtfulness as she prepared to care for our two dogs, Tess and Cee Cee. This was the first time we had left the two of them together (two very different temperaments and needs) for as long as we did and her thorough preparedness for their care, helped us leave them in her care without worry. Kriss sent us texts/ emails daily to keep us in the loop; we were confident that should any problems arise, she would contact us right away. When we returned home, the house was in excellent order, the dogs happy and well cared for. An accident on the carpet was steamed clean - better than I do myself! On this trip, Kriss also went above and beyond to deal with cable repair problem that arose the night before we left. It turned out to be more than a simple technician visit, but she made sure it was all taken care of before we returned. We have already booked Kriss again for two upcoming trips!"

"With you (Kriss) taking care of Sally (Border Collie) & E.B. (cat) I feel totally secure -- a good feeling for a pet owner (and not one I've had with some other sitters). I know everything on your list, and more will be done, even if I've forgotten something on mine. I particularly appreciate your written log. It's great to know what you did and how the guys were.

This is a phone message from Dianna McKenna who owns and runs Aberdeen Airedales in Dexter, MI. I cared for her 10 Airedales and managed the kennel for three days when she had to be away on a last minute emergency:

"Just wanted to call and tell you thank you so so so so SO very much for doing the dogs these past three days, that took a lot of stress off me, that was just a lifesaver. No words can tell you enough how much it meant to me cause I knew they were in great hands and I didn't even have to think twice about it. So I'm just eternally grateful to you. You have the Good Housekeeping seal of approval, it was wonderful -- thanks a bazillion!"

- Diana McKenna, Dexter

I knew my dog of 12 years (Bentley) was near the end of his life. Even though I had to go on a business trip, I didn’t want to leave him at my usual boarding kennel. Kriss gave him great care and attention and even had some special food for him. I was relieved that during this difficult time he was well-cared for and happy and that she would alert me if anything came up.

Dear Kriss,

Thank you for the wonderful care you took of our dogs and house. You truly go above and beyond the call of duty and raise mere "pet sitting" to a new level! 

 - Thanks again, Andrew and Anna (and Ringo and Riley!),

College Heights,


I have been looking for a dependable in-house pet sitter for my two “spoiled” dogs for several years and I finally found Kriss with College Heights Pet Sitters. Max is my 15 year old male and Pepper is my 16 year old diabetic female requiring food and insulin every 12 hrs. Pepper is a problem eater and needs to be hand fed every 12 hrs in order to get all of her nutritional requirements, which is not an easy task. 

I was so pleased with the care and attention Max and Pepper received. They were happy and healthy when I returned. Pepper was fed and ate all of her meals and received her insulin as required. Kriss went out of her way to meet their special needs and also left the house in great order. I felt so comfortable and reassured during my first vacation in 5 years that I am planning my next trip. Thanks to Kriss I was able to relax and enjoy a stress free long awaited vacation. I was kept informed by Kriss with texts and phone calls. I cannot thank her enough.

I have the greatest admiration for Kriss and her pet sitting business and recommend her highly. Kriss performed her services with competence, trust, reliability and a big dose of love. Thank you!

I have been fortunate enough to have Kriss and her crew care for my two kitties several times, including for an extended period. My cats love her! She is so wonderful to them and I think they are happiest when she is around to spoil them! Additionally, she does a great job with my house, going above and beyond to make sure things are tidy and "lived in." I never worry about things while I am gone because I know that everything is in good hands, that she will contact me immediately if anything happens, and that things will be even better shape than how I left them when I come back! I cannot recommend College Heights Pet Sitters enough!
