Jillian is downright AMAZING with our pups! She is always on time, reliable and all-around a truly honest goodhearted person. Jillian is an animal lover through and through. She has the knowledge and skills to provide a safe, loving relationship with your pets. We love her so much. I find myself wishing I was away more, just so our pups can get the outstanding care she provides. Our three big pups LOVE her to death. They get so much love and attention from her. Not everyone can handle our large dogs but Jillian does so with ease, doesn't even bat an eye at the craziness of tangled leashes or the barking at everything in sight. She will follow your requests as you would like your pets cared for. She is active in the local pet community always attending many pet events. Her husband is great too (we got to meet him)! What an awesome family! We feel very lucky to have met Jillian.
I would be more than happy to brag about her to anyone looking to hire her!
We love you Jillian!

So very happy!!! Jillian watched my cats this weekend and for the first time I didn't get the cold shoulder when I got home. They were extremely well cared for with lovely organic treats and lots of attention. She sent me pics and let me know their progress throughout the weekend. Jillian went above and beyond for us, and completely deserves the five stars. It is obvious that she truly loves and understands my furry little kids!

Jillian is amazing! She played, loved and cared for my little guy during a business trip to Florida. Jillian has so much energy, is attuned to the animals needs and gives them all her attention while she is with them. I would definitely recommend her for your 4 legged friends.

I have lived in about six different neighborhoods throughout 3 states since I have had my fur babies and Jillian is head and shoulders above all the pet sitters I have encountered. She truly loves animals and takes very good care of them. Moreover, Jillian also ensured that I was updated throughout my absence and at ease that my babies were care for and happy.
She is definitely our go-to sitter!

Bubba loves Jillian.
Jillian is very professional, but she kind of melts when Bubba gets up in her lap. We needed to find someone to stay with our 9 lb chihuahua, Bubba.
Here's what we like about Jillian:
Bubba liked her and he's a good judge of character usually. My husband and I also found her to be open and honest.
She met with us in advance of staying with Bubba. We liked how we spelled out all of our requirements and she did also in advance. It was good to know what to expect before we left Bubba.
She was on time for each of our meetings with her.
Her pricing is fair.
She is an experienced pet sitter.
She provided us references, which we checked.
She sent us pictures and messages while we were away that showed us how comfortable Bubba was.
We had never hired a pet sitter before and were uncertain how to go about it. So, we just used our normal business experience and it turned out fine. Our comments are based on our own experience. Anyone else should use these comments only after using their own good judgments for their own decisions.

I am a full time real estate agent, as well as a working chef, so I usually work seven days a week. Whenever my wife has to pick up an odd shift for her work at Disney, Jillian is always there for us. She does a fantastic job! We have two dogs; Lily, our two year old Boxer and Cooper, a one year old Jack Russell mix. They absolutely love her!
She actually spends time with the dogs and builds a relationship with them, rather than just stopping by, strapping on their leashes and taking them for a quick walk. They obey her commands and she always takes them for nice long walks to make sure they get some good exercise and worn out. She also feeds them for us and ensures they have clean, fresh water.
Jillian is spectacular when it comes to caring for our two dogs. They absolutely love her. She gives them (both) kisses and tons of love and praise. She is a God send. My wife and our 2 “kids” really are blessed to have her around.
I recommend her to all my friends and even to my clients. You can't go wrong!

I would love to tell you about my dear friend Jillian. I have known Jillian for somewhere between six and eight years. I have switched companies and can’t quite remember when we first met, but know it was with my last employer, which was more than five years ago. I am a food broker and years ago Jillian worked as an Eastern Territory Manager (manufacturer representative) for The French Patisserie (California). We instantly became friends due to our love of animals. Although I have never been to her home, nor have I used her pet sitting business, I would completely trust Jillian with my animals and for that matter with my children. Jillian has the kindest heart I know. I was very excited when she told me she was going to start this business and leave the crazy food world behind. It was a perfect fit for her; I love hearing her excitement as she describes the “fur babies” she gets to take care of. She was a great manufacturer’s representative. She always did what she said she was going to do. Her follow-up was great and her positive attitude and smile made everyone’s day. Jillian would go above and beyond what most reps would do. I know her work in the food business does not involve pet services, but I know Jillian puts 100% in everything she does. Her reliability, honesty and hard work can be seen in all she does.
On a personal pet note… Jillian has been over to my house several times and spends the whole time playing with my two cats and bearded dragon. I have even received care packages, not for me, but for my cats or the “fur babies” as she calls them.
I have no doubt Jillian will treat your pet(s) with the same love and attention she gives to her own. And if you have talked to her for more than five minutes, then you know they are her world.
I hope this helps with your decision to use her business.

I would love to tell you about our experience with Jillian Vail. We met Jillian in December 2012, after extensively searching for a pet sitter, who would stay overnight, and could not have been blessed with a better person. We have two dogs and they are our babies so I am very picky about who I leave them with. From the moment we met Jillian, we knew she was perfect. She is very professional and LOVES animals. She arrives on time, if not early, and spends as much time as you need going over your pet's care while you are gone. She also sends text messages to keep you updated, and lets you know how your "fur baby" is doing. Our dogs get so excited whenever she comes now and I can leave knowing they are in good hands. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to stay with your animals, we could not have been more blessed by having her in our home.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to help.
You will not be disappointed.

I have known Jill since 1984, we are very good friends.
I will tell you that you won't find a more reliable, more caring and sweet person to look after your pet(s). I know that she goes the extra mile and that she really loves what she does! She is most definitely the MOST animal friendly person I know and would do anything required in the caring for your pet(s).

You couldn't find a better person to take care of your babies! I have a small dog and three kitties. One of my cats is in renal failure so she needs an appetite pill and IV fluids every day. Jill had no problem doing that for me. My pets adore her. They get so excited when she comes over. She has quite a few kitties of her own, and I know they are taken very good care of. She's a great person and I have no qualms about trusting her with my home and my babies.

My pets had a better time on their "stay-cation" than we did on our vacation! Jillian did a fantastic job!!!
--- Katrina J.
Jillian is absolutely amazing with animals. She has five cats and takes great pride in how they are treated. Jillian donates her time and money, to many area shelters, and volunteers her time to help all animals in need. She cares for her neighbor’s pets when they are on vacation and has an amazing rapport with all animals she comes in contact with.
When your animals are in Jillian’s care, you will not have to worry about it, as they are in the hands/care of the best in the business!!!
